Creed, you should know that there is in no way a "consensus" over in the MarketGulag, only the capricious and rigidly enforced dogma of Herr Oberststalagfuhrer, aka King Karl I.  All dissenting opinions, no matter how civil, well-argued or logically defended, are summarily purged as heresy, most of all ALL talk of that most hated by King Karl of all metals, gold.

I was using Proshares 2X inverse ETFs to short the market back in the fall of 2008.  It worked perfectly until the monthly OpEx when the ETFs got hammered, even though the EFTs I was shorting continued to lose.  Even though my timing was perfect and I exited my position on 3/9/09 and the market had declined considerably, I only broke even.

Silver is getting harder to come by. I can't find a place (even Tulving, Kitco) that has the 1-oz .999 bars that i bought just last year. Sure, you can get larger bars, but try finding 1oz bars.

  When silver becomes really, really scarce, people will flock to gold. By then, your oz's of silver will be worth 1/2 oz of gold. Two-to-one ratio?

  I guess I'll hold until the excrement hits the rotating wind device, then I'll trade for farmland - with a chicken-coop. I'll eat fajitas till I'm dead.

  Yes, I already have the lead and delivery devices, food for 3 months, gotta get water and T.P., or use FRN's, after bleaching them.

Why are you waiting to get farmland? It's only getting harder to come by every day with the Bernank printing to eternity and perpetual QE. QE 3 not coming? what's this QE 2.1 and the versions keep improving.

No it's not.

And I really suggest you not debate me on the topic, not because I'm smarter than you, but because I'm on top of it.

There's an interesting confluence of events here, where real estate (and yes, agricultural land) has gotten smacked down (because a good chunk of it had been bid up on expectations of zoning changes and development pre-2008), and farmers' kids do not want to farm (and farmers are old).

The big boys are not regrouping for large scale purchases right now, because they're getting quite nice yields on what they have (in most cases, absent weather catastrophes).

People should take the headline clips of skyrocketing agricultural land in the U.S. and wipe their asses with them.

If you're a farmer, and your crop(s) are money makers, this is a great time to buy, as the bust in real estate along with the demographics are pushing a lot of land on the market at very attractive prices per acre.

This is completely and totally the opposite of what I see here in rice/cotton country (Arkansas).  We're getting big time money (wallstreet, et al) coming in trying to buy everything...  all the big farmers are consolidating and purchasing more land...  we've had nominal price appreciation of at least 50% in the last 3-5 years...  these lands stay in families for decades and any chance to purchase adjacent property is always exercised.

Like all real estate, I strongly suspect demand is a local phenomenon...

Same old stuff. Options expiry yesterday and look at the 10% dip in silver prior to it. Then magically the market comes back and now gold is at the highest point ever.I don't need to tell you to BTFD.

Next Options expiration is 28 days away. They're writing silver contracts prior to opex (1-2 days before) to stop their derivatives bubble exploding. Especially JPM with its huge silver derivatives positions.

It will probably rally till then and then there'll be another huge 10% selloff.

Silver to low $30's over the next six weeks.  The real pain is still yet to come!

Not even close bud.  I've been(pretending to be) scaling in and got some more(imaginaries) on the gap up this morning.  Now it's nothing but a green ride to the 30's.

But of course, now you will not believe me even tho I've said(SAID) I've been doubling down every day for the last five business days.

No way am I covering yet.....

Got some more (imagi-)puts at the open, 33, 37's and 40's for October.

It will still be a green ride to the 30's.  This is just the first green....

I would love to stay and play with you bagholders, but I have a date with a(nother imaginary)Porsche.

Remember, the low won't be hit for six weeks, so it's still not too late to get out.


See you in a few hours.

Just been looking at the daily Dow - up over 1,000 points since the 16th of March (Fukushima, I guess that's gone away now) and about 550 points since 18th of April (S&P's 'negative' stance on the USA).

Or 100 points and 55 points on the S&P.

Exactly...a brief shaking of the tree over the last couple days most likely dislodged 60% of the weaker hands.  We'll need to repeat this exercise again next month to get rid of the other 40%.

Hopefully, within six months, we'll have a full-on decoupling and won't have to deal with SLV's bullshit anymore.

The question that must be titillating the PM bugs is : how will the Ag to Au ratio vary all through the coming period. And what effect will the QE or not QE enigma have on this ratio and its evolution relative to other assets. Oh, if only I were Nostradamus...I could have any woman in my bed! Well, we all have our sense of priorities even when we are happy, the glass half filled or half empty...what a horrible human quandary!

When silver showed support at the 9-day, I bought more.  RoboTrader should be proud of me because that's straight from the IBD handbook.  Where are you, Robo?

It becomes more clear every day: these guys are desperate, trapped and out of ideas.  Everyone holds their breath for the Fed?  The Fed's got NOTHING but the printing press.  The only thing getting tight over there is their sphincters.

Exactly, the FED's got nothin. However China has $2 trillion, (really meaning their entire $3 trillion) of UST debt stuffed in a cannon and about to fire it off.

What about the Fed making the banks buy back the Bonds, with fiat printed by and funnelled from The Bernank, and thus the Banks being viewed as wrapping themselves in the flag and being All American good rapists ? 

I wonder whom the market will be once the Chinese start selling is my rhetorical question

From what I've read, China has adjusted their maturities so far to the short end, they won't have to sell (2-3 yr. avg., I believe). All they have to do is stop rolling the proceeds. Which, since the US Treasury has also moved to the short end (ZIRP FTW!), it sets up some interesting financial gymnastics later over the next year or so.

Turbo Timmah and Benron are going to be busy boys. Well, at least until the IMF "bails" them out.

Wut wuoh.  Silver's $47.59.  Looks like you lose, and tmosley wins.

Just like I told you.

Now you are stuck paying US and New York taxes on all that silver you sold.  You'll never be able to get back the same number of oz again.

Dangertime is up there with the greats like Nostradamus and that Heaven's Gate cult who predicted the world would end when the Hale Bopp Comet passed by our planet.

The Heaven's Gaters were each found with a roll of quarters in their pockets. Probably not 90 percenters, though.
