Good news: at least it is not in backwardation. We wonder how long before Bernanke uses that excuse in a public tribunal.

In Jim Rickards piece on KWN, he says the stock is the flow.

Meaning the fed balance sheet is large enough to perpetuate a stealth QE, or as most of would like to call it: backdoor QE.

He misses a very bonehead thing.  When those bonds are redeemed and the Fed is payed, well guess what those payments have to come from you guessed it fresh issuance.  so in effect to keep things stable the Fed must roll their purchases.  This keeps them level, problem is the 1.5 Trillion deficit.  All the Fed can do is roll the garbage on it's sheet, unless there is true financial wizardry I'm not sure how the Treasury pays the Fed X dollars and the Fed turns around and gives the Treasury X+ Y dollars without printing more.  Rickards is only right if they balance the budget, which has about as much chance as Stephen Hawking scoring 200 points as at the NBA All Stars game.

Shameful, ever since the KWN Rickards interview I have had the same craw stuck in my head but I have ignored it because no-one else has addressed it (at least that I had read), I just thought I was ignorant in some manner.  But now, YES, how the hell could the Fed just roll over existing Ts to continue QE?  The math does not seem to work.  Thanks

If the FED maintained a level balance sheet, there would be no credit expansion since the treasury would only be newly issuing what is matured.  This will crash the system.  Well, its going to crash anyway so there will need to be some games played to make sure the selected scapegoat gets blamed.

So Rickards specifically mentioned mortgage payments on the Fed's books. Some of those mortagees are still making payments. Those payments include some interest and some principal. In regards to the stealth QE, I think he was more focusing on the interest payments, not the principal payments. If both interest and principle are "reinvested", then the balance sheet expands.

Likewise, bond payments include some interest. If you're talking treasury, then yes, the US Treasury has to borrow more money from somewhere to make those interest payments. But the money then goes to the Fed, who can choose to either reinvest it or disappear it.

Must Read?

James Gleick "The Information: A History, a Theory, a Flood."

This one should be good fodder for a couple hundred thousand words time to commence the blogalicious blather and rants and perhaps even read the book.

from bloomberg:

On Gold:

Gleick: Money itself is an information technology. If you take a dollar bill, it’s just a token, an indicator that I have a claim on some amount of value.

People used to think it was worth something in itself because it was made of gold. Even now, we sometimes naively continue to have the illusion that a gold coin has value because gold is somehow precious.

Lundborg: Look at the rising price!

Gleick: Aside from the industrial uses, the dominant source of value for gold is something entirely psychological, because people agree that it stands for something.

It’s really a form of mass hysteria.

On Wall Street:

Gleick: The villainy in the financial sector over the last decade has expressed itself in an increasing abstraction of financial instruments. But it’s not the abstraction in itself. What’s to blame is the lack of regulation and lack of sense in the way it was all handled.


Anyone care to file a book review?

Yup - it's been dollars, silver, gold, conch shells, wampum, animals, land...all imperfect attempts to act as a store of wealth.  All have been gamed, just some much more than others.  The dollar is one of the biggest cons of all so now folks look for agreement / consensus for real stores of wealth.  Voila gold, stocks, silver, energy, ags, commodities, farm land, RE, CRE...anything hard or with some inflation adjusted value w/ real world practical utility.  None are prefect, none are really that great but some are far worse than others.

He confuses real money with the derivative of real money (fiat currency).  

If it's not intrinsicly valuable it's not REAL money.

not a scientific approach but from checking the silver and gold auction sites (daily) i've noticed less merchandise offered over the past 2 or 3 months. bids are firm unless the starting price is off the charts high. premiums are not yet over the top except for some uncirculated bu types that for some reason get bid way up. my take is that folks are holding on to their stash expecting higher prices.

18% gain, or 4.5% inflation for the next four years seems low to me. Id put it nearing 1975`ish. Running at a current real 9% a year inflation. And thats probably low.

Dollar is so weak now even Obm tried to stir MidEast and Euro debts can barely move DXY over 76. Most of foreigners start to understand 'Treasury Ponzi'. Especially BRIC countries, they printed money even faster and larger than Ben did, people there quickly buy up everything can stores value. So if more and more people withdraw, Ponzi will collapse by itself. Only WW3 can solve current problems now.

$1709 vs spot price just represents forward LIBOR plus storage costs vs. today's spot, nothing else. That's just an annualized ~2.6% a year.

Excuse the double post! Been a while since I've posted here!  Maybe it need be said twice!! I think with Utah now passing the legal gold/silver tender bill; 3/2, making US mint gold/silver eagle bullion coins now legal tender.  Many other states to follow!!  These US mint coins will get scarce as sovereign states follow Utah in a backup plan to the shrinking and soon collapsing paper fiat dollar.  Anyone gettin a  US gold eagle under 1550 or a silver eagle under 50 may thank me later.

I fail to see why they even did it.

It's legal tender know.

Has been since the first ones were released.

Why  the big deal.

Protect the people from dead head feds confiscating the people of Utah's gold/silver bullion/wealth preservation.  It's brilliant! US mint coins were not legal tender and minted as uncirculated coins.  Now circulating in Utah. Other states wantin their citizens to carry gold/silver bullion will protect them from the tyranny of fed goons immediately.  dead head feds want it all and will take it by hook or crook lest we the people are protected by states rights!!  Got it?  Then get it as the window is closing fast and financial armageddon soon upon ameriCON'd.

Authorized by the Bullion Coin Act of 1985, American Eagle Gold Bullion Coins quickly became one of the world's leading gold bullion investment coins.  Produced from gold mined in the United States, American Eagles are imprinted with their gold content and legal tender "face" value.  An American Eagle's value is based on the market price of its metal content, plus a small premium to cover coinage and distribution.

American Eagles use the durable 22 karat standard established for gold circulating coinage over 350 years ago.  They contain their stated amount of pure gold, plus small amounts of alloy.  This creates harder coins that resist scratching and marring, which can diminish resale value.

Legal tender face value! That's 1 dollar for an American silver eagle! Under Utah legal tender law the face value is out and spot is legal tender. Plus you get favored status in the state with US mint bullion coins and exempt from capital gains taxes.  Some of you guys are goon-a lose your asses holding paper fiat and all that's attached to it.  gov goons have bated the general public to be worthless paper money bag holders in all collapses of fiat monies.  The USD is a debt based fiat currency headed for the scrap heap of history in collapsed paper ponzi fiat monetary systems.  Wake up and get it or bend over and get it!!

that's easy money. You buy spot at 1456, sell the future at 1710 and pocket the difference. You store it untill you have to deliver. What's the catch? Confiscation?

I hate to burst your bubble, but if you ignore storage costs that future implies a (risk-free) interest rate of only 2.9% for a 5.75 year maturity, which is not so far away from the treasuries that it would be pricing in a lot of inflation, so this is not the big story that the headline hypes.

Try again.

BTW, the radiation pouring into the sea is much scarier.

Take your legal tender 50 dollar face value gold eagle or 1 dollar face value US mint silver eagle bullion coin to any bank outside the state of Utah and see what you can get for them!   ......................................... Although nominally issued as legal tender, these coins' face value as currency is far below that of their value as bullion.[5]      Wake up AmeriCON'd

Of course the spotlight is on silver right now, but Gold is really where it's at.  Some of my sources report that it might get over $2,000 by 2015...with silver where it's at right now, any precious metal is a valuable commodity.  Suck it, JP Morgan!
