Gold Goes Parabolic As Chairsatan Resumes Vendetta With US Dollar, Middle Class

Tyler Durden's picture


As Bernanke reminds the world that the one and only weapon in his arsenal is stealth inflation through dollar devaluation (yes, some had already forgotten it, especially all those economists, think tanks, and others who claimed there was no QE3 hint in the FOMC minutes), there is one clear winner: gold, which continues to surge to all time highs and will likely cross $1,600 within the week (if not day), from which point it is smooth sailing to $_,000.

And remember crude and plunging prices at the pump? Kiss those goodbye and thank the Chairsatan.

And the most notable chart: the biggest winner by far today is silver, followed by gold, with the stock market dead last.

And meanwhile, the silver "bubble" keeps bursting.
Today silver fell off a cliff again, falling 2 dollars from 36 to 38 in 6 hours.

I bet all the loyal doomers who follow Turd Ferguson must be pulling their hair out.  


The summer doldrums (frankly, any commodity in a consolidation phase) will crush and bankrupt you in less time than it takes Bart Chilton to fix his hair. As soon as you get excited and greedy, they'll reverse and kill you time and again until the phase is over. Trust me, you won't miss out on much and you'll save yourself a lot of money if you patiently wait and avoid the temptation brought upon by greed."

As discussed here last week, the doldrums almost seemeddesigned to reclaim from you all of the profits you made during the last run-up in price. I know it is extremely tempting to buy this rally. Unfortunately, anyone buying here will likely get whipsawed

Really, a Gold/Silver Bug told to sell Gold at lows ?? I am scratching my head.

I told here to buy Gold on July 1st 2011 when Gold was $1485/oz before this $100 run up.

         if anyone has money, they should load up on Gold now and continue for a week.

         stocks also will be great.

Wow, Fiddler, after seeing gold get knocked down and come right back time after time, telling everyone to buy when it got knocked down yet again was real crystal ball work. 

It's not too hard to fortell where PMs will go if the currency is going straight to Hell.

Well it could have gone down further and people could be waiting for a better entry point(see Turd's advice to sell at $1485),

especially with all those QE no QE noise people can be confused.

Once you sell, it is hard pshychologically to buy back if price goes above the sell price(waiting to drop).

A good entry point is when you get more Gold for cash.

TF is talking about people with trading accounts.  He's right about the summer chop.  We are going to see more dramatic price swings as real world events overwhelm the Fed's ability to suppress PMs. 

Most TF fans are big "buy and hold" types, not traders ..... though some are both.  They (like me) are loving life and accumulating on the dips.  I suspect there will be more buying opportunities before the Big Ponzi implodes.

I disagree.  If Turd's focus was the "hold forever" crowd, he wouldn't be posting his hourly chart analysis every day.    

Everyone agrees that gold will eventually go higher - there's no need to start a blog about holding gold forever.  Turd clearly spends most his time trying to make short term price predictions, and he got this one wrong - big time.  

This is the same guy who, every day, reminds his readers that the PM markets are totally rigged, then, oddly, posts a 3-hour chart analysis.  If his prediction is right the next day, then all the doomers hail him as some sort of PM oracle.  If the analysis proves wrong, then it was all just manipulation.  This duplicity is not only hilarious, it's a clever logic trap which enables him to be right every time. Those who actually try to trade on this strategy won't find it very useful, and this latest $100 move is no exception. Personally, I find Turd's analysis very junior varsity, and perhaps this is why ZH hasn't added him to their blogroll.

Wow, you are a fucking moron.

You can't tell that Bernanke just announced QE3.  This is the action of a single man.  Such things can NOT be predicted.  It changes the position of the markets from "normal trading" to "dollar devaluation trade".

Wed, 07/13/2011 - 13:18 | 1452611 Max Fischer
Max Fischer's picture


Today's hearing had no surprises at all, especially to the ZH and Turd crowd. In fact, the only thing Turd has been right about is that the Fed will continue QE indefinitely, and that's only because he heard it from ZH first.  All we heard today were confirmations of what was already known.

The only thing Bernanke said was, "The possibility remains that the recent economic weakness may prove more persistent than expected and that deflationary risks might reemerge, implying a need for additional policy support. The Federal Reserve remains prepared to respond should economic developments indicate that an adjustment of monetary policy would be appropriate."

What did you expect Bernanke to say?  That if weak economic conditions persisted, he would do nothing and that the Federal Reserve is not prepared to do anything?

Today's comments by Bernanke should have been the most predicable comments in HFSC hearing history, especially to a blogger who believes in infinite QE.  To imply that Turd was caught off guard by Bernanke's comments is pure lunacy.

All this notwithstanding, what about the $80 move before today?

You can't be serious.  BILLIONS of people didn't buy silver/gold yesterday, it is statistically impossible for them all to be a dumb ass.  I wish I bought my gold at $400, but I didn't.  So what?  As long as I make a profit, or at least protect myself from the destruction of the currency THAT IS COMING, I win.  If PMs were going to top out here, and you missed your chance, I could sympathize with your feelings.  However, does anyone thing gold will top at $1600, or silver at $38???  With this government?  With this banking system??? 

Stop blaming yourself for bad trades or missed opportunities.  You missed nothing.  Nobody knows where the top will be.  Buy a little now, and if it dips some, load up.  It doesn't matter if you catch the whole move, just get into the move.  The USD being destroyed is a given, that makes this trade risk free.

I have to say I'm a bit surprised with how everyone is reacting to the news of the day.

Bernanke has NOT YET committed to QE3.  He said it's on the table IF the economy takes a nose dive, but he doesn't think that will happen (considering he said that the economy will finish 2011 strong).  Like ZH has pointed out before, the only way we get QE3 is if the markets TANK (at least 10-20 percent IMO).  Yes gold and silver will remain strong relative to equities and some commodities, but you can't possibly think that they will be immune.

I think there will be one final dip in gold and silver which will come right before QE3 is demanded by Washington and Wall Street.  I don't see gold heading straight up to $1700, 1800, etc. from here without a significant dip.

Ah see, the Fed has already commenced its stealthy QE is still and will continue to monetize debt.  Also, everyone already know QE3 (whether it is called that) must happen because of the continued decline in housing equity and bank reserve requirements.

Oh, and of course they are not immune.  Gold and silver that is traded (paper with no physical banking) has been and is continued to be manipulated.  They could take the spot price down to zero (LOL) if they wanted to but physical and miners will be worth a decent penny.  HFT's will keep playing the game as long we can.

Wed, 07/13/2011 - 11:34 | 1451997 SeverinSlade
SeverinSlade's picture

I completely understand that.  But just because well informed people KNOW that QE3 is inevitable doesn't mean that's exactly how it'll happen.

If Bernanke tries to implement QE3 with the DOW approaching 13,000, the DXY heading below 75, and gold and silver making new highs, how do you think Washington (and Wall Street) would react?

Bernanke wants to be seen as a hero and not a villain.  The DXY has to be strong and equities/commodities need to be weak for QE3 to have full support.

Gold and silver are guaranteed to hit insane price targets EVENTUALLY, but people are now acting as if it's going to happen in a week. 

I'd be very careful buying heavy into this rally.  There's going to be a dip at some point.  I think it'll probably happen immediately after Congress reaches a deal on raising the debt ceiling.

Its all probabilities but a bird in the hand .....   not sure at all that there will be significant dip before QE3 officially.  Maybe we are close to bank runs. Read the latest G.E.A.B. (Greater European Anticipation Bulletin) predicting a perfect storm for the financial system for the second half of this year ... we are in the second half.

MagicHandPuppet's picture

Anything is possible.  There could be a sell-off of all liquid assets in the face of imminent massive technical defaults creating a dip in gold.  But, it's also possible that gold/silver will be exceptions to this in light of a corresponding currency crisis.  Either way, zombie-repellent ammo prices likely will not dip!

Wed, 07/13/2011 - 11:32 | 1451981 Global Hunter

I was thinking along the lines of you, that here is going to be some talk and rumour of QE3 and stimulus first to keep the EUR in check and the equity markets propped up for a few weeks and then let markets deflate in a slow orderly manner (I know that sounds absurd) before QE3 is announced.

However watching the Bernank speak just now I suspect he's retarded and mentally ill and he may be deluded enough to think that even hint of QE3 will take us to the promised land.

What is really motivating them?  Do they know its all over and they're trying to "manage" the great unwinding of our financial system or do they still believe all their Keynesian bullishit?

We still have 6 to 8 weeks of the high season to go out at the 'Hampton's'.

The summer doldrums are still here, no matter what transpires in Euro-land. Both gold and to a lessor extent silver, will correct and consolidate their gains before continuing their slow upside grind.

100 percent agree.

Allowing gold and silver to just explode to the upside without obstacles would be a complete failure of TPTB.  That will not happen UNTIL a run on all fiat currencies begins.

Just more of the same IMO.  They allow metals to spike, thus bringing in a lot of small buyers thinking that this is the "this is it" moment, only to then pull the plug.

One final dip before QE3.  After QE3 it's all over.  I think within 12-18 months following QE3, China will dump their USD holdings (and the rest of the world will follow).  But for now, buy into this rally with caution and be ready to once again BTFD.

I agree with you.  I am not buying into this rally at all.  I think we may see $1600 gold by week end but wouldn't expect it to go much highter.  QE3 can't happen until all appears lost.  The European bank stress test results are Friday and they probably won't be good.  Could possibly see a big sell off then.  I'm not going all in on PMs until the markets tank and Bennie announces QE3.

That's the irony of it all.  Many of our fellow PM believers don't see the inherent contradiction in their logic. YES, QE3 will come and YES, fiat currencies will collapse. But yet again, QE3 was not announced (or even fully endorsed) today.  All that Bernanke said was that it was on the table and would ONLY be considered if the economy and markets slowed considerably.  Bernanke is bluffing of course but he does have a good poker face (well, not really.  But as terrible as he is at lying, he's still a better poker player than the sell-outs in Washington).  Bernanke won't blink until the markets sink 10-20+ percent.  I always tell people to remember this.  The banksters will ALWAYS try to appear as our saviors instead of our masters.  Printing more money right now would be too villainous.  Best to wait until printing money is the last resort.

And if there are a significant number who think like you guys do, well then wow, their strategy is working. 

Uhhh, anybody notice what's going on in Europe?  Interesting that what is happening there is kind of a slow motion version of Gonzalo Lyra's prediction of how HI would happen about a year ago, only in Europe.  I tend to go with the continued doldrums theory, but as each day passes, it is looking more and more like collapse time.  And all that's happening is that the rush to G & S is beginning.  Do you really think the ECB can put the bond genie back in the bottle?

Transformer, how different would the game be if the debt limit wasn't an issue?

Obviously investors aren't flocking to the dollar right now.  In a few days when the US government is able to borrow again, what then?

You act as if I'm saying I don't believe in gold and silver.  Obviously that's not the case.  A lot of people were saying precisely what you are saying back when gold hit its new high a few months back and when silver was touching $50.  Mid to long term silver and gold will go up, up, up, but in the next few weeks?  See some downward pressure.

I agree, I am guessing one more big takedown, this time time hitting gold is in the cards, but who knows?  Last year metals bottomed at the end of August and still that possibility this year, but I would not bet two fiat cents on that happening.

Well I think by mid-August QE3 will be announced (agree with Bill Gross that it could come at Jackson-Hole yet again).

July 22nd is a little over a week away.  The fact that McConnell has caved shows that a deal is imminent.  Be ready to BTFD.  It's the last one.  After QE3 is announced, game over for the world's largest Ponzi scheme.

an agreement on the debt ceiling may possibly be a "sell the news" event.  I have fists full of money waiting to buy some shiny objects.

Same here.  I trimmed my positions in my miners a bit too early, but I'm eagerly waiting to BTFD.

Who's suggesting a sell off of that magnitude? 

Silver is, however, likely to trade down to the mid to low 30's before they touch the mid to high 40's again (at least in the next few weeks).

When equities and commodities drop 10-20+ percent over the next month or so, do you really expect gold and silver to continue shooting up?

Keep stacking, but just be cautious specifically with buying heavy into paper investments (i.e. miners and ETFs).

Again, all bets are off after QE3.  But Bernanke can't pass his QE with the markets trading where they are now.

We seem to share the same view. 

I'm going to start buying silver around $32 and gold around $1475.  Not sure about when I will start buying miners again.  Will probably do the sensable thing and buy a little here there as prices fall.

I'm just going to buy in small increments on the way down.  Whenever I hear Bernanke say the Fed is going to launch another round of QE, then I'll go all in.  I'll buy at least 50% into my margin and will probably primarily buy AGQ and small cap miners.  Every large percentage rise that outpaces silver will be sold and converted into physical.

In the mean time, my profits from SPXU will give me some more physical at the coming discounted prices.

At least there will be a solid record for the text books that Bernanke is the biggest ass-wipe in monetary history.

You know, he could print physical paper and simultaneously increase the reserve ratio to reduce the total debt in the USA and control inflation. But no, that would reduce the profitability of his bosses.

I would like to see a real time gold chart set against the Fed testimony, and the up/down price in gold, becuase everytime the Bernake opens his mouth, gold goes up.

How about adding a live gold quote along with some other key price quotes on ZH for us to more easily know when our master, the Bernanke opens his trap.

Just a thought for everyone to think for a second.  Wouldn't you love it if gold goes to $2500 an ounce and silver lets say $156 an ounce using GSR of 16 to 1 ratio.  The scary thought to think about is, how much will our food price, gas price, cost of living is going to be?  It is scary.
