    Here’s a question that might have you pondering: Is gold a commodity? More importantly, are we doing a disservice to the gold industry by calling gold a commodity? These may sound like silly...

All these sell-side douchebags try to make it sound so complicated simply so they can continue to extract huge fees from the sheeple.

For those in the market to buy there is a great piece on the PM retail market:

Patrick Heller provides a pretty comprehensive summary on the availability and pricing for gold and silver bullion products.

The Nasdaq more than doubled in 2 years and peaked at 5048 on March 10, 2000, and quickly fell to 4798 by March 17th.

It then rallied back up to 4963 on March 24th -- and people thought it was safe to get back in water.

But they were wrong.  By April 14th, it was at 3321. 

It rallied to 3860 on April 28th, and  people thought it was once again safe to get back in the water.  They were wrong again.

The Nasdaq was back around 2000 by March of 2001.

The same thing will happen with Gold.  The downtrend has already started.

Those of you buying this rally need to be really careful.

We're going to have ups and downs before we go back to $750 (or lower).

It seems that 1.4mm ounces (45 tons) of Gold have come out of the trigger happy exchange traded funds since 1/24/10 (rioting started on 1/25/10). 

This rally is being sold big time.

Sell The Fucking Rally!

Sorry, when did gold double in two years?

When did the Fed stop printing money?

Did I fall into a coma for a year or something?

Gold went from $713.50 on November 8th, 2008 to $1432.50 on December 6th 2010.

The fed is also not printing money - QE increases bank reserves.  The banks print money, not the fed.  Loan growth is still anemic, and thus so is money printing.

You've all been had.

You need to wake up from your comas and sell.

Hey, this guy thinks the Fed isn't printing money!

Hey everyone, check this guy out!


But seriously, you act as if gold had been rising before that.  It only hit that level after a 30% correction that lasted almost a year.  Pretty sure the Nasdaq didn't do that.

Go sell you piss lemonade somewhere else.  No-one here is buying.

I hope none of you are buying PMs.  You're going to get destroyed.

You're buying something that has gone up 5x in 10 years on the premise that massive money printing is occuring.  It's not.  We're still deleveraging. 

QE is designed to negate the deflationary pressures of a collapsing credit bubble.

It's been used before and it works - WELL - look at the Sweden and Finland in the early 1990s.

All is fine.  Nothing to see here.  Buy stocks.  No bubble there.

Stocks are cheap.  Corporate earnings are hitting records, and we might do $100 bucks in earnings on the S&P 500.

Even at 1300 on the S&P, we're still at 13x.

Historical is more like 15x...  which means we could hit 1500 soon.

Also look at the P/E of debt - large corporates can borrow at (or below) 4% after tax...

The P/E on debt is 25x ---- that means any of these companies sitting on large cash balances can theoretically pay 2x where any company is trading and it is still accretive!

Sell The Fucking Rally.  Gold will get crushed.

how are you wrong?  let me count the ways.  no just let me elaborate one:  your example of the nordic banks is in actuality a counter example to current u.s. and european (and prior japanese) policy.  the nordics put the banks in receivership, wiped out the shareholders, replaced management, haircut the bondholders and took public the stub banks stripped of toxic assets with the resulting moneys used to replace the public's expense for the operation.  and yes it did work well.  did the u.s. do anything like this?  (howling laughter, sounds of chairs and tables being knocked over by individuals tumbling to the floor and rolling upon it).

I'm not wrong.  Sweden and Finland expanded their monetary base, just as we are doing.

Sweden doubled their monetary base from SEK 83.73 Bn in August '93 to SEK 208.26 Bn in June 1994. They decreased the monetary base to SEK 81.11 bn in Feb 1997.

Finland expanded their monetary base from 34.5 bn to 68.7 bn and brought it back down to 36.2 Bn.

Expanding monetary base does not doom a country, as much as all of you would like to think it does.

Expanding the monetary base actually does exactly the opposite.  It saves countries.

Headline from AlJazeera:

Algeria to lift emergency powers

President says country's 19-year state of emergency will be lifted in near future in apparent bid to stave off unrest.

Looks like they picked the wrong week to give up emergency powers!

yes 19 years is quite long.  our national emergency, at a decade, seems much shorter.

how about buddhists?  i remember some monks burning themselves up in vietnam to protest the war with nary a peep.  now my granddaughter's tinkerbell notebook says made in vietnam.  damn glad we fought that one.  maybe someday she'll have one made in afghanistan.  then it'll all be worth it.
