PMs looking good out of the gate.  PMs continuing the checkmark move from the friday drop.  Moving with the dollar.  Platinum is loving life above $1800.  Lovin' it!'s picture

Lovin' it!


Isn't that the latest McDonald's slogan? Of course, like gold, you can't eat it.

@ Mr Lennon

Happy Camper Bearing is loving the PMs doing good out of the gate, especially the recent nice runs in Pt and Pd.


Shortages bitchez!

Platinum just dominated the market.  Did the trolls notice?  No, they were busy watching gold.  Monie moves in mysterious ways.  Silver, gold, and platinum track each other in the long run, because they are all perfect monie, but they do not (always) move the same in the short term.  So while silver and gold tested support, berated by all haters, platinum jumped up and took the torch.  Now the sisters will kick their captures in the nuts, and run out of the castle.  We will help them out of the gate, you and I, and as always, a reward for the return of the princesses will be offered.

Mr Jimmy,

Adrian Douglas and GATA are spot on. Add Turk, Embry, Russell, Butler and Organ and you have all you need. Most others (especially the deflationists) have been consistently bad at calling the PM's markets. ZH has been fantastic at bringing the suppession story to light.

Rock on Bitchez! BTFD.

Palladium may be the next metal to skyrocket in price.  Check out this:

New Glass Stronger and Tougher Than Steel

ScienceDaily (Jan. 11, 2011) — Glass stronger and tougher than steel? A new type of damage-tolerant metallic glass, demonstrating a strength and toughness beyond that of any known material, has been developed and tested by a collaboration of researchers with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)'s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab)and the California Institute of Technology. What's more, even better versions of this new glass may be on the way.

Platinum and Palladium haven't sold off at all.

More proof that higher gold prices are assured, but only if the economy continues to boom.  Buying gold and silver on the assumption that their price will rise when the economy collapses is a fool's errand.

Another stock to watch is PAL.  Unlikely to see a severe correction in gold as long as the palladium producers fail to sell off.

Global car sales are booming.  And once those Indian and Chinese finally migrate off the motor scooter and into a car, they feel rich and buy lots of gold jewelry for their wives and daughters.

NICE Lady!

There is a fear that the Chinese market for autos will collapse.

Since Christmas Eve, the day after Beijing announced strict measures to limit the number of new cars in the capital, Liu has not received even one prospective buyer, let alone signed any contracts.

His showroom in Beijing's Chaoyang district, which sells China-made Chery models, could "encounter its first single-digit monthly sales before Chinese New Year", said the salesman, who started in the industry four years ago.

"We've heard the store will lay off 60 to 70 percent of its sales staff after the holiday," added Liu.

To ease the gridlock, city authorities will now issue just 20,000 new vehicle license plates a month, meaning annual sales will plunge from 891,000 units in 2010 to 240,000 units in 2011.

Beijing car sales may taper off due to this but outside of the two main cities, Beijing/Shanghai, car sales are parabolic. Nearly all being sold for cash. Certainly the larges t car market in the world.

I agree, I'd like to give her a pearl necklace myself.

My wife buys gold for herself.....if she put it all on at the same time, she would look like Goldfinger's christmas tree. Indian women have a thing for gold that goes beyond western comprehension.

"Buying gold and silver on the assumption that their price will rise when the economy collapses is a fool's errand."


...well, if the Fed's answer is to that is an even greater money dump, then the PM's will do even better in a collapsing economy since no one will want to hold paper...recall just one example.


ps...nice that the former Tunisian president's wife???

It's not the economy, it's the currency collapsing. 

Robo is a liar. See Robo, Junk Robo, and Never ever read Robo.

Well done Robo!

Your comments are always easier to digest when spiced up with some pretty pictures.

FYI sportsfans, unlike the USA, when a Chinese guy buys a new car, an old car somewhere is not junked because they are so new to the world of cars.  There ARE no old ones to be cut up as scrap.

Well, 2010 Chinese (excluding India) car purchases . . . about 17 million vehicles.  Give them just 10,000 miles / yr of driving (less than the US) and 25 miles per gallon and guess what, that's

10,000 / 25 = 400 gallons of gas.  42 gallons per barrel (approx with refining gains) and that's 9 barrels of oil per car X 17 million = 161 million barrels of oil or 440K barrels per day.

That's just from 2010's crop.  They are expecting to buy 21 million cars this year and 27 million next year.  This is a consumption increase of well over 1 million barrels per day just from China over the next 2 yrs.  Just from China.

Tra la.

As always it is most interesting what an (aspiring) manipulator is NOT talking about:

RT: "Buying gold and silver on the assumption that their price will rise when the economy collapses is a fool's errand."

But buying gold and silver on the assumption that their price will rise when the currency collapses is... ?

I'm long the bullion and short the GLD.

Let's see what ya got CRIMEX.

qrad's picture

nice strategy! you just have to cover the shorts, cash out and into physical before the dollars you make on your shorts won't buy the physical... hopefully that won't happen, but we must prepare for complete dollar death. keep posting your deliveries to



The Talmud Kid's picture

I'm long a few rolls of 1 oz AU/AG bullion coins from around 950 and 14 usds respectively, and short the GLD and SLV against at around 1200 and 28 usds.

Dislocation, bitchez.

PMs cusping the Veblen Event Horizon.

What is the Veblen Event Horizon?  Or tell me where to look, thanks.

gwar5's picture

PM's is a way for me to get out of the dollar. If JP Morgue cheating makes me rich, that's their bad.
