    Here’s a question that might have you pondering: Is gold a commodity? More importantly, are we doing a disservice to the gold industry by calling gold a commodity? These may sound like silly...

My view is that Bob Pisani is a complete homo and that Maria Bartiromo has had one too many liquor drinks and/or cigarettes in her career.  Any competing views?

It's insulting to group Pisani with gay people. Gay people are way less harmful than Bob.

My view is that if you pull back really hard on the yoke with a  low powered airplane you'll go up really really fast and then stall. If you just wait for everyone to die off that remembers this you can load the plane up with people who will go weee!! Everytime.

Close--if you pull back really hard on the yoke then your wings will stall, but you will not go up at all.

The above chart (entitled: Global Liquidity) does pose an interesting correlation between global liquidity and the dollar's rate of change.  Does anyone else have an opinion or experience with this? The recent "carry trade" (selling of dollars and long almost every other asset class) has profound unwind implications if the dollar reverses -- a trade which absolutely no one expects to occur.  The trade that would hurt the most investors, would be the bearish dollar "unwinding."  And...the Fed or Treasury could orchestrate a swift dollar reversal like that with one simple overnight comment (like, "...we think the dollar is to low and with our counter parties will begin supporting it...").

If the Fed is sitting on foreign currency, and pulled its swap lines with foreign central banks, that might support the dollar.

The swap lines can convert to loans after Oct 31st.

Have you ever noticed how docilely we accept any and every "data"/chart that happens upon the web; especially those that have some kind of official/government stamp on them. Seriously guys - you may think I am paranoid, but Fed providing the monetary base/money supply data is like the fox guarding the henhouse. Unless there is a complete audit of the Fed I really cannot be sure that anything they say is true.

No offense, but we don't "think" you're paranoid...we know you are!  However, it appears your paranoia might be well warranted at this point.

But, is "well-warranted paranoia" an oxymoron?

GG--I agree.  How about some financial math?

pretcher says we are at multi-year lows for the dollar. 'nuff said.

...and when Prechter points out a multi-year low, you can bet your ass it's going lower

Second. Although I've emailed those brainless morans (CA) about this several times and have a growing number of form emails in my inbox. Your message is much less profane than mine

"fear and confusion driven melt up"

This says it all. What an extraordinary statement.

They will crack up, then they will crack down.

would be great if someone could establish a
fund where you click and donate, and have a web counter thing that rings up the amounts as it grows and have it go viral across the bloggisphere/internet, with it's mission openly designed to donate to anyone running against those senators that do not join the 1207 effort. Have it linked to all the important bloggers, talk radio, Beck etc.. let the senators sweat it out as they see the amount grow larger and larger. Like a giant Jerry Lewis telephone except this time we are collectively trying to save our country.

divide it up equally for every single opponent who gets on the ballot and we're in.

would be a nice experiment in the public financing of campaigns.

They can compete all they want -- it is almost certain this isn't going to end well, for anybody.

Late to the thread....so, the IMF how much are they to be trusted with data. Second, what is the definition of 'global liquidity?' Third, good thought provoking chart, but there are points where there just wasn't great correlation. Finally, even if 1omm people were bearish on the dollar, and CB were not, who wins? CB and their ilk have this in their hands. We watch and wait.....

re:"S&P 20% above 200 sma; first time since 5-1983"

True, but 5-1983 was an excellent time to buy stocks.
