"Caution is advised around gold in the near- to intermediate-term due to this potential near- to intermediate-term reversal."

Ya think?

gold is collapsing! Sell it before it goes down to 200 an ounce!

I'd be able to buy 6 times as much.  24 ounces instead of 4 ounces?  definitely a wet dream.  Nadler can pick up his NFLX and AAPL.

GoldFaNFger,

You just do not get it do you?.

$1430, $2000.00, the price in Fiat is irrelevant.

When the Show starts,you will be kicking yourself in the ass for selling, and wishing you could get it at $5k.

Turd:  Love your posts, generally, but on this one, I don't think "the broad" is that far off from where you are.  She is talking only short term and intermediate term, at most.  And she is talking about a $1258 bottom on this pullback, with a slight chance of dipping to $1150 or so.  None of that is a surprise.  It is a standard sort of pullback necessary to consolidate the long term run up to levels you foresee.  Gold will reach your levels, and possibly within your timeframe, but this pullback will take gold closer to $1250 in the short term.  When it hits $1250, it is time to buy.

NOW, to my single, fundamental question: do we buy ONLY physical PMs or is it safe to dip into paper PMs (e.g., AGQ, UGL, GLD, SLV) when we buy this dip?

I would say so. That's what I do anyways. The paper goes down with the physical, so when I want to buy more CEF, then I wait for a downdraft.

Wat,

Even if she's correct or close, also the Turdmeister(IS), your still basically looking at $1,300.00+ gold w/prems.

So how HUGE a drop is it really?,granted if you want to add to your holdings, a $100.00 pick up is great, and I will snag some.

IF it can be found,whoever wants to add, start holding the real deal, better be CASH rich, and a fast SOB.

when shit starts hitting the fan, and i mean seriously hitting the fan, sell all paper and buy into closed funds of PMs or PMs proper.

 

GLD and SLV have custodians for their stuff, HSBC and JPM respectively. And most of their stuff is lent to them either ways. I mean, most of the GLD gold belongs to the Bank of England, who in turn get equivalent market value in terms of pounds or euros or $$$ for loaning their physical to GLD, who in turn gives it to HSBC to store. lol.

I like your blog, TF. Only thing is, when I see "TF" I think of well, Ticker Forum...

In any event, if the U.S. Mint halts production of gold or silver eagles, buffaloes, AS THEY HAVE IN THE RECENT PAST, then whether or not prices have lowered won't make any difference if you're not able to get these coins.

Obviously you can buy Krugerrands or Philharmonics etc instead, however you won't get the tax benefits of Eagles.

Unlikely.  The premium for physical would probably be $2000 a toz at that point, and even then, it will be hard to source.

Same as anything else out there, look at any of the totaly manipulated markets and try to find the 'safe haven', good luck. Its all manipulated BS and who knows when the wheels will come flying off but I'll take a safe full of silver and gold over anything else right now.

OT, I had sold a PUT (it appears in my Orders tab) but it has not been updated in my transaction history -- it has never been delayed this way in the past. The PUT price has not increased since my trade -- I am wondering if my brokerage firm is front running me to the extent of buying my PUT with hope of flipping it higher and so has kept my transaction pending and hence not updated my transaction history.

Would appreciate any thoughts on this situation from the trading community..

I'm no expert, but this doesn't sound right to me. Unless you sold with limit/stop conditions, or you were trying to sell enormous volume, your order should have been executed nearly instantly. The market maker in those options (who is not necessarily your broker) has many ways to screw you, but holding up your order more than a few seconds isn't likely.

Could be, could be....who's your broker? (Hope its not OptionMonster or TradeMonster).

My RIA told me this goes on all the time with Options trading.Traders can see what your trade is and up the price or take an opposing position to your disadvantage.

Reminds me of the old Steve Martin bit about smoking:

"I would only smoke it in the late evening. Oh, occasionally the early evening, but usually the late evening - or the mid-evening. Just the early evening, midevening and late evening. Occasionally, early afternoon, early mid-afternoon, or perhaps the late-midafternoon. Oh, sometimes the early-mid-late-early morning. . . But never at dusk! Never at dusk, I would never do that"

so I went to watch the video (of course did watch all the talk of the "expert") - then i too chuckled at the American idol comment...she could make a good potential Idol candidate assuming the show is still on by the time she is broke and looking for smt else...americans getting bored to voting their own pop star
