Strategic Cash Reserve release. What's that? We don't have one, you say?

We had one in Ft.Knox but the last audit was done in 1948 so who knows what remains of the Strategic Gold Reserve.

at 11am it will reverse as the volume declines. It will begin to creep up on vapor volume until the close. Typical.

.....when you have busted vacuum tubes lifting every offer in a market that has 3 lots in Level 2.

Skynet (junior grade) to the rescue.

I keep wondering when the FED will print $1,000 bills for circulation.

It's delayed because Hussein's cabinet is dickering over whether a sitting president can have his face on a bill.

Didn't you hear?  Last night Kudlow (sounding desperate) said "the oil release is QE3!"   Too funny.

Wasn't there a site or original article somewhere that detailed the components/weightings of the "risk basket" ?

Is there a POMO today to save the day? Will the Pollyanna Party continue sometime today? Or is there no Fed punch bowl?

I keep thinking he may be related to GS. Just like them, he always likes to sell into the bottom, and buy into the top.... or at least so he claims.

Let me see today:

1. Futures expiration for gold contract (99% of the time gold down 2-3 days before every time)

2. Margin calls on market drop requiring selling of liquid assets.

Otherwise carry on and keep shorting that gold robot.

Your #2 should be relevant quite often considering we're all calling (wanting) an SPX under 1000.

Fri, 06/24/2011 - 11:29 | 1398589 BlackSea

Actually the correlation holds only for the initial drop in SPX after a few day's climb. You will see gold drop with SPX initially, only to level off and then go back up as the selling continues.

 

As the SPX goes up a few days, the next time the selloff occurs it's the same pattern again - by that time players hedged again with paper gold.

Nah, the correlation is pretty strong: i.e. market up 100% from march 09 lows, gold did just about the same.

Momofader just keeps moving the target...a year ago he said $1,200 gold was a pipe dream.

5-yr. yield has collapsed to 1.44%

Looks as if "Paper" has trumped "Things" during this selloff.

CRB Index now trading at new lows for 2011.

Easy for MomoFader, he just moves the target to wherever. Doesnt matter his 'high fliers' are 40% down, or that gold is $300 over what he said was a pipe dream. Keep movin them goal posts Skippy...its easy for a paper account trader.
