Gold Break Out In Progress

Tyler Durden's picture


Perhaps those 2 days of December 1,800 gold call purchases we discussed yesterday indicated someone (not Doug Kass mind you), knew something...Gold has just surged by $20 in minutes. Unless Blythe can find a way to contain this, this could get very ugly, very fast.

me too, less of the gang rape male bonding fantasies whenever the metals move up, unlike here.

seriously, CogDiss could do a post on the correlation between gold charts moving up, and male gang-rape fantasies, it's pretty consistent for some of the dudes here - the ole "money is power" meme?  or is it just "I love you bro' - let's go fuck someone up"?

But of course Glass-Steagall is better than betting on either side (as both are wrong).  As gold at 1 million an ounce will be great for the owner on paper, the rest of the world however, would collapse.

Things could get very, very ugly on the upside here because all we've seen the first 5 weeks of 2011 is long-side liquidation but with massive buying on weakness. Meanwhile, the physical markets are tightening which of course is always the assertion but this time, right now, it's true. Silver market in particular is tight on physical supply.

Best way to describe current juncture in gold and silver markets: as price goes lower, supply dries up.

It's like everyone's sarcasm detector is broken. I think Hamy (and the other wanker derivatives) are freaking hilarious with how over-the-top the parody is, but only a select few seem to be picking up on the joke here.

because government controlled fiat paper is so much more valuable? C'mon. It is all a mindset. "The full faith and credit of the United States" really doesn't mean what it used to anymore. What about those of us who buy precious metals as a rejection of FRNs and the abuses of the Fed that span decades? Are we demonstrating our group-think folly through this little protest?


Some day, I hope that we can realize how much damage is caused by divorcing ourselves from our principals and beliefs in order to make a buck. Economics teaches us that there is no right or wrong, there is only what is. Maybe this notion has hurt us more than it has helped us, despite any monetary profits.


Edit: Goddamnit Hamy. You got me again! I need to use more attention...

Yourself, Harry Wanqer, and the real deal Wanger remind me of spiderman, venom, and carnage. I'll leave you to figure out who is who.

2/3rds of the states likely just declared disaster area status from having a foot of snow dumped on them and governments gotta dump thier crash gold program and print like crazy.

Why go through hyperinflation when Glass-Steagall will take out 17 trillion of today's debt (thus no 100 trillion monster a few decades from now). (which is of course why those numbers are always silly, even if you know if the fed left alone would print it)

Yes 1 million per oz. gold, more than the amount of ounces of food in America one day, or glass-steagall?  It's really that simple. Hyperinflation or Hypercrunch (but yes hyperinflation is the fed's tool so only removing them would switch it the other way)....BUT....Glass-Steagall avoids either.  No hyperinflation, no hyperdeflation.  Get out from the two black holes of debt/derivatives and monetary printing. 

Who needs uncle sam when you got Uncle ben.  Oh wait, he's the TBTF uncle, not yours.

Glass-Steagall is all that matters.  Except for Nero to be thrown out.  C'mon my fellow dems, throw out the monetarist bum.  It's called INCAPACITATION...due to being MENTAL and not coherent enough to know the TRAIN of MONETARISM...has jumped the shark and Big Ben's (and the QoE) printing will lead us to hyperinflation.  So you all DO REALIZE that ANY president engaging in hyperinflation monetary printing can be legitimately removed under the 25th ammendment right?

So sack it up and throw nero out.

America can do much better than the monetarists know as Barack Paul. The Keynesian Austrian, and inherently anti-american.

Why now? JPM has been hammering on PM's for weeks. Has it all been positioning? Little profit making to make up for losses on shorts?

BM knows the goldbugs aren't going to sell. This is just a paper game to fleece the small traders. How's that GLD treating you now?

Hat tip to ZH on this one. As I say, the reason I come to this site is for info you can't find anywhere else, you just have to wade through the sensationalism at times.

Thanks also for the breaking news a couple of weeks ago on Tunisia and how you thought it would spread to Egypt. That info made me buy oil and sure enough, Egypt erupted a couple of days later.

Gotta give credit where credit is due.

The real H/T goes to Leo Kakalakas and his incredible SOLAR/GREEK BANK stock tips. Thank you for providing the timely info!

H/T to Harry for providing the great tip on Home Decor stocks which as you can tell, the whole world is just going mad over home decor. Who needs rice when you've got pleated blinds and styrofoam sconce lights?!

BTW Harry, I'm selling 5lb bags of white rice for $9k/bag if you're hungry... I mean if you're interested.

And you sold all your gold right Harry? What will you say when gold is a double or triple from here?

Sensationalism? How about a little history lesson for you and some of the other gold bears.

Prof. Fekete explains,

"The root cause of the Great Financial Crisis was not deregulation, excess pay of banking executives and poor risk management, not even collateralized debt obligations, subprime mortgages or loose credit standards. The root cause reaches back to August 15, 1971, when the Nixon-Friedman conspiracy knocked out the corner-stone of the edifice of the nation’s and the world’s financial system, the gold bond. (Before 1971 the debt of the U.S. held by foreign governments and central banks was gold-bonded.) The remedy is obvious: refinance debt in terms of gold bonds."

The public ignorance with regard to precious metals is incredible...most do not understand the metals are reacting to monetary liquidity and currency uncertainty in the market...people think gold operates in a vacuum and conclude there must be a bubble because of the price.

people I'm with you but please be careful, this could be the 1350-1370 rebound before leg 2 starts down to 1230-1260, (just my opinion)

If one understands that gold is simply monie, then it may be charted.  It is now used as a commodity of course due to our technological advances, but this adds to its value.

I agree.  I'm taking a small hedge position in GLL and ZSL right here.  I'm still majority long both gold and silver.

no shitsky, CE.

he sure talked HIS book!  i thought:  journalists? in the 4X? naaah! 

must be their owners.

slewie's law:  propaganda, always and everywhere, is a downhill phenomenon, or it wouldn't just go onenon. 

the correlation is a mindfreak!

then i have this thought:  now, remember, when sherlock and moriarty went over the falls, they had to do it, together.

i knew the USD was gonna spike, today:  yest., i bought 3 nice NY steaks @ spaceway, valupak club price, $3.99/lb. down from $10.49. (!)  now, there's some tasty deflationary propaganda, shoppers.

here's gold, about to trampoline off the 120 mda, and for sure, it's gonna drag the damned dollar with it!
