Just do not worry about it and buy silver.
The DXY is going to 200 because the dollar is such an undervalued investment compared with all the other fiat debt instruments, and no, this is not a false dialectic, it is merely the question of deciding what else to use when valuing debt? Gold and silver? Ha! There is not enough silver and gold for everyone to use. Never mind if the prices of precious metals increased dramatically, this would ensure that resources such as oil and water could trade in equilibrium with the value of another tangible good. The banksters changed the paradigm forever long ago, those brilliant men. The brilliance of them lies in the fact that they created a new idea that only god understood: create something out of nothing, and like the big bang, Smithsonian economics was born. Now slave labor exists to further our society. Long live the slaves!
The hundreds of trillions of dollars will continue trading with vigor as long as slave labor continues to feed the engine of progress. And demand will always be high for dollars and slaves and their counter party, the bonds and sharecroppers, because the US is so freakin' awesome with their budgeting and what not, and slavemasters are so freakin' important.
you mean you can find $18 Trillion in silver and Gold and the Bankers would never had been able to pass it around to the extent that it was in fact passed around?
Noooo.. say it aint so!
Not enough gold and silver? I've never understood that claim. Is that a divisibility claim? To use it as an actual currency, sure. In fact, a flood of silver in the 15th century helped move it to center stage (and laid the foundations for the term the "dollar".) To use it as a store a value, by contrast, it only needs to be divisible enough to move around the banking system. There is plenty to do that
The dollar as an investment? bwahahahahaha
Why would anyone in their right mind hold an "investment" which loses value year after year, and when saving them pays negative interest rates?
There is plenty of gold to back the dollar 100% at $50,000 an ounce.
thanx for that, Quin....I've been a little short on yuk's today
I,would love that..
Yes! wait.. dont buy! hold on to that Paper!
if the Fed Printed $3 trillion in debt.. and another $15 Trillion in Loans (this does Not! include swap windows and TARP / TALF and so fucking on...) over three years..
$18 Trillion divided by 3 years ='s $6 Trillion in New Supply is Printed a Year!
$6 Trillion Dollars divided by 365 days ='s $1,643,835,6164 a Day in in New Supply is Printed a Day!!
$1,643,835,6164 Billion a Day divided by 24 hours in a Day ='s $684,931,506 an hour in New Supply is Printed an Hour!!!
so, you hold on to your paper while my Gold and Silver dont rise in price.. Good Luck with that program!
And you have not brought in the printing press of the BOJ yet!!
BOJ is a Great! Source of Backdoor Liquidity! with a 95% Value Purchase Program of Bonds.. LOL!

Paper is trash. Buy all things real. Nuff said.
Greeks rushing to withdraw their trash.
We don't have those concerns here because we have the FDIC which has adequate reserves to cover everybody and represents in effect, the full faith and credit of the United States government.
As former GM bond holders will attest, you have nothing to worry about when the US federal government is in charge.
In Ben Bernanke We Trust
And using it to buy gold.
Wow...when the common people panic it is a game changer.
Greece doesnt have much time to agree to allow an international committee run the country.
And what EXACTLY are you buying with? Nickels and dimes?
Industrial commodities may very well go down. Especially if things get really bad.
I think that gold will hold up well though. Silver? Who knows, I do not have a good grasp on silver (I of course read up on silver, but I am not an expert, not even close).
$4 / lb for copper seems very high...
the dollar just ain't what it used to be
I laugh really hard when I see pm sellers advertise copper rounds for $1.80/oz.
Wow, a BUNCH of people I like right all here close together. Mr Lennon, JW, delacroix, XenoFrog, send me a gmail (not rocket science) if any (all!) would like to read my blog. I ask ZH-ers to jump through this hoop because of the nature of THIS site. I have 90 ZH-ers who did this and are apparently the great majority of my visitors. Mr Lennon, my blog does not at all compete with yours or Turd's.
$4 and rising. Again. Are asset markets this mind numbingly conditioned? That's a rhetorical question ...
Utah Law Makes Coins Worth Their Weight in Gold (or Silver)
thanks for the link. had seen that brewing.
what a joke propaganda article by the masters of spin themselves, the old record , soon to be less relevent than the onion
It seems to me any analysis that ignores the financing of the USG's $1.6T deficit is lacking. Just how and who is going to lend to the US or is Congress etal going to wake up and live within their means? That is an easy one.
He mentions QE, but this has now become a two headed beast, one to finance the deficit and second to maintain some semblance of economic growth. Up till now QE has been able to provide deficit financing and a little growth. The marginal return on debt is declining or even negative, how much QE will be required to prevent a deflationary depression or extended stagnation? How long will the electorate stand by and watch Wall Street get "rich" while they get crumbs? The winds of change are a blowin, we may not like what we get, but more of the same is unlikely IMHO.
AFTER the perps were bailed out with $trillions from the fed, there is going to be no way in hell to sell austerity to the public. For example, the Fed gave the Arab bank $23 billion, which is enough to fund SNAP/food stamps for AMERICANS for 5 months.....and the list of such outrages totals $15 trillion.
This is the point that the MSM totally misses.
Austerity now and for the middle class is a political non-starter. At the same time the idea that we can print oour way out of this problem has become impossible, oil at $100+ insures zero or negative growth.
Events will drive the politicians, not the reverse. Soon the politicians will surrender and the problem will belong to the public. Just before that expect capital/price controls and asset confiscation.
We will all end up with nothing.
The forced retooling, equiping, and distributing of electrical energy is a solid foundation for copper. Chinese pig farmers look around, see hundreds of new power plants going up, and hoard copper.
A Chinese pig farmer with no education is going knock Bernank's socks off return wise and, more surely, common sense wise.
Pig farmers have to actually work for a living. You will be surprised how much more they know and understand about economics than economists and politicians. And you bet your ass they understand more than Benny.
Unfortunately, it's not the common sense lobby that he works for.
exactly right.... btw, how's that "smart grid" thingy workin' out for us? sure hope they've got some of those "I am an IBMer"s on it
At some point industrial commodities have to start flowing, if for no other reason than to produce the guns and ammo with which to suppress the revolutions.
These are good points, but missing a few equally important ones. Plus, I hate to bundle PMs in with industrial commodities--the whole risk basket. The PMs have their own drivers which should be viewed separately. As the world-wide economy contracts, it is bearish for copper, aluminum, steel, etc., but it puts more pressure on the Central Banks to monetize in order to juice the economy, which is bullish for PMs.
A perfect example is a Greek default on their debt. This is only a matter of time, and given the CDS holdings of Goldman Sachs, IJ Partners, and several others that hedge for a Greek default, there is a lot of very large positions that will benefit from a default, therefore increasing the likelihood that it will happen. This is could very well be the domino that finally starts the Euro implosion. And, this is bullish for PMs, but bearish for industrial commodities.
Silver has it's own unique drivers. One of the biggest is that the Central Banks (and essentially no one else) have big hordes of silver holdings with which to dump in the market to thwart silver's rise. Silver is a PM just like gold and accepted as currency now in Utah. Given that an ounce of silver is a much smaller denomination that the equivalent ounce of gold, it is even more likely to be used as a currency. When buying food or staples, you usually don't whip out a $1,500 note (coin) to pay for it. Yet at ~$35 an ounce, silver is much more likely to be used in everyday currency, therefore increasing the likelihood that it will be used first and more often as a means of currency when the fiat currencies collapse.
there are not enough hordes of silver to go around, and the big banks, have mostly paper silver. there won't be any flood of supply, demand, will soak it up,in short order
We'll go back to the pieces of eight. I remember what two bits means; really not so long ago.
One of the biggest is that the Central Banks (and essentially no one else) have big hordes of silver holdings with which to dump in the market to thwart silver's rise.
No they don't, at least, not from what I've read. All the (big) short positions are naked.... they flood the market with paper silver. This is why the shrivelling supplies for delivery at Comex are such a big deal.
The fiat ponzi can only hold sway over the economy until finite resources have their respected output peak. Gold production has peaked, as has platinum, oil may be peaking now, and silver is around the corner. Gold trades instead of fiat (which is how gold trades with the stronger of the two tiered fiat- euro and dollar. Silver and oil trade inversely. The trade has been steady thusfar, but when supply falls across the finite resource board, the move will end the fiat based ponzi economy.
Yea Yea, none of this crap were evident at the start of the commodities bull market 10 years ago, !!!!! its the debt , and gold remains the leading indicator
and these are just white swans.
how many dumbass things will the freaking banksters doodoo before lunch, tomorrow? plenty!
Gold may be an exception, but industrial metals will not rebound any time soon because
1. QE3 will not happen unless and until Euro or another crisis provides cover, and
2. EM growth story is coming to an end, again.
Yeah I have always said brazil is a long term hold. Three percent dividend yield is not bad. I dont mind dollar averaging down if it happens.
Brazil has the most transperancy and the most open economy of the BRIC, amazing what that says about the RIC economies. It is also better diversified.
I would love to see ten percent dividend yields again. Probably will never happen.
