Silvergoldsilver.com Runs Out Of All Precious Metals In Hours

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Since Zero Hedge posted (unsolicited and uncompensated) the "Crash The JP Morgue" now-viral video late last night , it appears that among the tens of thousands of viewers who have subsequently gone to the goldsilvergold.com website, there have been quite a few conversions. So much so that as of today, the company is not taking any orders and is sold out of all products. The company goes on to say that it will not be accepting any new orders until December 6. We can only hope that the profits JPM will make in its copper market manipulation will be sufficient to offset the ever increasing pain it will experience courtesy of what is gearing up to be a massive margin call.

Good to see that gold/silver is going like hotcakes, and no just because I said cakes does not mean you can eat it :)

You'd be naive to think they would go under just by getting short squeezed, we need start trading with gold/silver not just bury it in the back yard

I have a feeling that a squeeze of JPM is more likely in the short term vs a return to gold/silver/barter. Just sayin. I am naive, however, most of the time.

Dealers WITH gold and silver inventory include:

www.Tulving.com

www.Apmex.com

Am not associated with them, etc, just letting others here know there are highly reputable dealers still with inventory that needs to be sold. Go get 'em ZH'ers!

I've been following 10 ozt. bars on Apmex, and they are very low rights now ( http://gold-silver.us/forum/gold-silver-precious-metals/apmex-precious-metals-retail-supply-index/ ). I've also tracked 1 ozt. gold govt. issue coins, but they are not currently short there.

 

As a side note, Apmex recently changed their banking to JP Morgan.

Interesting...  

"The Dolt Brothers" (Boehner and Cantor) first (and only) priority is to add $400B to the deficit to give a tax cuts to billionaires... they thumb their noses at 98% of the population with impunity... they have sold their souls to an oligarchy (who of course is funding the "grassroots" Tea Party) that will keep them in power as long as they continue to represent them in the continued fiscal rape of the masses.

America deserves what's coming... really, how can so many be so blind?

Allowing people to keep more of their own money does not add to the deficit, no matter how rich or poor those people are.  Spending more money than you make is what adds to the deficit.

Cutting the tax base does actually increase the deficit when you have interest on the debt.

Higher taxes aren't the answer, but tax cuts for billionaires certainly isn't either. Time to end the welfare/warfare state.

Raising taxes in this economy is INSANE.

Maybe you should check w/ QE 3, now being proposed by Burning Brenake,as he passes out 9 Trillion more to anyone , and everyone except POOR Americans.

The Bush tax cuts expire this month.

CUTTING the tax rate for 98% of American taxpayers (and not the top 2%) was a major plank in the Obama 2008 campaign... if memory serves me well, he won by a comfortable margin.

Get out of the LIBERAL TREE

That's right, villify anyone who actually cares for the less fortunate, and doesn't in join the Faux News gang (and their mindless followers) in their pathetic bashing and branding of the poor as lazy freeloaders.

And yes, I am a proud Progressive (the name has been changed... four more letters to confuse Tea Party sign artists... lol).

Time to give up the Liberal Keynesian Kool-Aid SRV. This is one of the most pervasive fallacies in the Democrat class-warfare playbook. Soak the rich? Have you ever worked for a poor person? Even JFK understood this one.

1. If I may, the Hauser rule:

http://www.fundmasteryblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/05/wsj-tax-revenu...

No matter how high the top marginal rates are, the revenue comes in at 18-20% of GDP, this is a fact. I know Progressives like to "create" their own truth, but sadly reality is not optional. Incidentally, the all time peak of tax revenue (20.5%) was during the George W. Bush Presidency shortly after his tax cuts. Hmm, that's wierd?!

2. 70% of all jobs in America are created by Small Business Owners. The majority of these companies are sub-chapter S, LLCs, "Doing Busines-As", etc. who FILE THEIR TAXES ON A PERSONAL 1040! Got it?! Most of these 1040s will show a taxable income well above >$250K/yr.

So, if you want to kill more jobs, do what the bigger idiots in the Democrat party want and don't keep the Bush tax cuts in place for everyone.

It's time to stop spending and waste, not pour water on the fire of the economy.

BTW this article is not about taxes, so find someplace more appropriate to do your drooling, please.

It is instantaneously obvious that you have absolutely no knowledge of what you've attempted to talk about.

Zip. Zero. Zilch.

For example, can you explain to me the average individual gross income in 2000 versus 07/08/09, and how the Bush tax cuts factors into that comparison? 

Additionally, which year were tax revenues the highest?  What is the relationship between that particular year and the fact that everyone in the United States had an ATM card with a picture of their house on it?

Just curious...

By the way, you jackasses, gold production peaked in 2001...the fuckin bull run is being driven by basic supply/demand dynamics, not a bunch of madmaxers on the gd'd internet.

Not exactly.

The bull run began in 2001 when production peaked - he is right about that. 

But the parabolic move in the past 2/3 years has been driven by unprecedented chaos in the world financial system. Massive hedging and speculation by banks, hedge funds, governments and every individual that felt the world wobble off its axis in 08/09 (US)/10(europe) is the true reason for the parabolic move in gold/silver. 

It was/is a historical time of uncertainty and fear - but it will subside, as all chaotic moments in history do. As fear wanes, speculation will fade, demand will fade, and price will fade.

To deny the role of speculation and hedging in the price of gold over the past 3 years is to miss an enormous variable in the supply/demand equation. That massive speculation and hedging will meaningfully unwind, and the price will drift back to reality. 

There will be two themes for the 2012 election:  deficits (austerity) and employment.  Any indication that those three will be tackled in any meaningful way, and the chaos hedge will begin to unwind.

I don't believe it will subside...the increasing debt requirement inherent in the western monetary systems have been sustained via accelerated real economic growth fueled by cheap oil.  When you try to bandaid debt problems with more debt while economies are contracting in productive terms and the low fruit is gone from the energy tree things will move exponentially in the other direction.  This is what is happening.  Think about it, two years ago we had private debt bombs going off, now we have govermental bombs ready to explode.  Nations, states, munis...western thinking and western investors are not driving the precious metals markets...its the other side of the world, with most of the population.  This is a historic shift of influence happening right before our eyes.  Western currency is all backed by debt, and the debt stinks more and more each day as it continues to rot.

In the period in which you speak gold went from $800 to $1400. In the previous period of the same duration gold went from $400 to $900 (during the height of real estate speculation), clearly there are other forces at play other than the recent evil PM "speculation".

You give absolutely no evidence on your position.

At least I can point out that both gold and especially silver are at purchasing power peaks right now. Run a few charts on just about anything with Au or Ag as the denominator. Is this ratio supportable?

 I don't know. Au/Ag are discounting some very bad outcomes. Ag is another animal itself.

 I will claim that it is in a severe bubble based upon purchasing power. Folks that buy at the hedge fund leveraged price now will get gutted. Buy my sludge, please.

 Please do look at the metals prices based upon New York time.

 All of the fables on how China is buying and whatever is going on in the Au/Ag must look to the hedge funds of NY to see where all of the price movement originates.

 For those that are Gaga on slAg, have a look at just about every commodity and equity index with $silv as the denominator. Do any of those charts make you feel as though right here right now is a good point to forego foodstuffs comedies for artificially jacked silver?

 If you have silver to back the trade, I'd suggest shorting silver against some select agricultural commodities. Silver is vastly overpriced at this time in purchasing power parity. against your basics and even luxuries.

No other commodity features consumption of a 5000 year old stockpile as a factor in it's price.  That stockpile is all but gone, and we are still using 40-50% more than we produce.  This does NOT point to a lower price in terms of ANYTHING.

Silver is the trade of the millennium.

But hey, you do what you want, I'll do what I want, and we'll both get what we deserve.

Not presenting support for RNR's or Tapeworm's positions, but on the premise that Ag is a store of value, why does one silver quarter purchase more in gas now than it did when silver currency was still in circulation? Using 1964 as the base, gasoline went for about one 1964 quarter, while the current silver content of that quarter is now over $5. Is gas undervalued, or is silver overvalued? The only conclusion I can come to is that the supply/demand dynamics associated with commodities is behind this Ag recent run up, but not as a result of its actual industrial use, which is only up nominally. That leaves us with what, financial engineering, shenanigans, hoarding, speculation?

You speak of value as if it were constant.  This is obviously not the case, or prices would never vary.

The reason silve buys more is because there is less silver.  In reality, there is MUCH less silver, so you can expect its purchasing power to continue to rise.

the same could probably be said for oil, as there has been no efforts to ration it.  as a result we are running towards a similar cliff in the same way as with silver supplies. 

Sun, 12/05/2010 - 21:18 | 780633 tmosley
tmosley's picture

NOT the same, by any means.  Practically all oil extracted from the ground is burned or converted to something else (plastics, etc) within a year.  There was never a real stockpile.  Just tiny ones that are kept for "national security" reasons.  We have been using as much as we extract ever since we began extraction.  Silver is a different beast.

This is fully separate from any form of peak oil argument.  I am not saying that there won't be any oil price shocks in the future, but that the price shock of silver will be the greatest ever seen by man.  It will take decades for production to reach the point where mine production can supply what the worldwide stockpiles have been supplying thus far.

my viewpoint was in response to the previous comment comparing gas prices to silver prices.  neither market currently reflects the true scarcity of the underlying commodity as much as they will someday in the future. 

of course, silver has its uses, but it is also recyclable and, in the case of coinage, it has substitutes. Other metals can serve equally well as intermediate stores of value.  For this reason, as you know, silver is not the only show in town, but it is clearly one of them.  

a more accurate valuation model may wish to include all significant metals collectively, as they all have their uses that far exceed the green-inked cotton or paper of any color.

Well, there's something we can finally agree on.

As soon as you start seeing cartoons on YouTube offering insider information, you sell. It's the modern day equivalent of the shoeshine boy.

Why would silvergoldsilver.com sell you an asset if they truly believed it was going to get squeezed into the cosmos?  If it were true, it would be more profitable to hold their inventory, not sell it.

It's a great sales pitch with very convincing threads of truth; but, in the end, you're being sold a product at record high prices.

You're right.  I don't trust grocery stores either.  All the stuff they are selling is sure to fall in value, or else they wouldn't be selling it!

That's one of the worst examples of sarcasm ever posted on the internet, because the entire inventory of a grocery store does fall in value.  I'm sure you find most your food at the local PetsMart, so perhaps you're not as aware of expiration dates, but your grocery store analogy is as dumb as a football bat. 

OR they are hedged and make money of the spread...

Of course they're hedged, and of course they can make money on it.  But that particular YouTube video was calling for an out-of-this-cosmos squeeze which, if true, would be infinitely more profitable than making money on the juice or spreads. Their message was clear:  silver is going to jump over the moon (and soon).  If so, those hedges are nothing but pennies, comparatively. 

Why do you continually fall on your face every time you make a post? If I've got questions about tartar control AquaFresh, I'll ask you.  Otherwise, please refrain from embarrassing yourself further.

You are fully ignorant in everything you have ever said.  I showed you what I do, but you still call me a "toothpaste researcher", which is ignorant beyond description.

I've made my thoughts on gold/silver clear:  Beware!  Markets lure you into a false sense of security, then violently reverse in the direction of the most damage.  Every time.  

But, of course, you freaks will never believe that, so let's talk about something endlessly more fascinating:  you, tmosley.

If particle physicists at the Hadron Collider in Geneva took your DNA and smashed it against a bag of douche, I'm fairly certain the laws of quantum mechanics would instantaneously place you on the top shelf of the feminine hygene isle at WalMart.  Douche bag.

Secondly, we need some clarity on your career: 

You sold a product to an orthodontic group that helps remove plaque off teeth.  In my book, that puts you in the same box as an Aqua-Fresh sales representative. 

Please stop trying to pretend to have the cure for cancer and HIV.  If you did, you wouldn't be selling tartar control chemicals for teenagers.   

...how stupid we are over here at Zerohedge, where we have been proven right every time..

Actually, the vast majority of forum members have been hiding under their beds for the past year waiting for German blimps to fall out of the sky, and for the entire financial system to implode. To the forum's credit, you definitely got the gold trade right. But the collective whole got everything else wrong.

Lastly, the fact that I get junked by a bunch of hyper-paranoid wingnuts with more green beans in their back yard than the Jolly Green Giant means absolutely nothing to me.

Firstly, I find your perspective is purely American based, the world is no longer waiting for America to resolve its issues and has moved on, becoming fiscally responsible will not make that go away and fiscal responsibility is a pipe dream if you are relying on the gov to provide it.

Secondly, your concept of business is appalling, to suggest that a bullion dealer could just hold its stock without risk of a downward move, and without relying on capitol flows to keep them in business and help expand their inventory and market. Otherwise, it would not be a business, but an investor. Who stays in business by sitting on their stock while hoping for an indeterminate price move in an undetermined time frame?

Thirdly, countries are not only dumping treasuries and dealing directly in local currencies, they are hoarding gold and hiding the amounts as well as tightening exports on rare metals. The USD is holding on by a thread and the fed has to resort to devaluation. And what part about QE2 did you not understand? Do you think it was because we are in a recovery that they resorted to measures of last resort?

Lastly, you get junked because you make no sense, if you had sound arguments, you would get debated, not junked(well, not to the same level) and your comments suggest that these Jolly green giant bean growers mean something, otherwise you would be out on this fine Saturday night.

Sure, I absolutely agree with you under normal circumstances: no business should just sit on inventory, as if they were investors.  All businesses need to turn inventory and create cash flow.  Buy low.  Sell higher.  Blah. Blah Blah.

But that wasn't the message of the video.  The video was supposedly giving inside information, suggesting silver would become (imminently) nearly impossible to buy, currencies were going to collapse, and the price of silver was going to rocket into outer space, due to a unique short-squeeze at JPM.  That was the message, and in that particular scenario -  if they truly believed what they were saying -  they would hoard every ounce of silver they could find. 

They wouldn't be selling it.

Again, the problem is one of capital. That is a business, maybe one set up with loans. They need to maintain an income stream. Even if they believe what they are saying, they do not know when a price move would happen. In the mean time, they can use the profits from sales to accumulate silver or gold and acquire more.

That is what the critics are saying. If dealers are pushing silver and gold the price must be high and they are dumping the stock they bought low.

It might be more enlightening to say they buy wholesale and sell retail, collecting a small profit on each transaction, and not holding anything any longer than they can help.

In other words they do not care if silver is $8 or $80 as long as they can buy for $7.50 and sell for $8.50, or buy for $75 and sell for $85.

Red Neck Repugnicant, you are TOTALLY right. The amount of neophytes rushing in is now amazing. I think we might still see some very nice upside action coming weeks or months and yes, further short covering. But a sustained drop in open interest will signal the end of an intermediate "micro-mania" that has been building up around the JPMorgan story and unrealistic expectations of imminent inflation in the US. It's interesting how these guys react when you're trying to warn them not to expect imminent armageddon. That's why I am on these sites. People forget that the Great Depression was a period with powerful major trends but also with many different intermediate phases. In other words, the secular bull market in precious metals will continue with ups and downs for many years so I wouldn never sell my core position, but definitely the calls will be out sometime in the near future. Have been looking at greener fields such as the various Asia bear trades that are popping up.

Sun, 12/05/2010 - 12:09 | 779457 Red Neck Repugnicant
Red Neck Repugnicant's picture

Perhaps I should clarify something.

I am not trying to say that Friday's price in silver/gold is the top, or that silver/gold won't move up in the next month or two.

But we are close enough to the peak in this particular mania phase (and it truly is mania) that to blindly expect silver/gold to jump over the moon due to an imminent collapse of JPM or the Euro, or whatever, is ridiculous.  

This thread began as a commentary on the cartoon, a short-squeeze at JPM and the subsequent probability that silver prices had been strapped to a rocket and the fuse had been lit.  That's bullshit. That is simply a fantastic sales pitch by a silver and gold dealer. 

There are threads of truth to that story, but the way the cartoon unfolds is not realistic. It actually reminds me a lot of a Glenn Beck episode, in the way it starts truthfully and then dots are connected into a world of utter lunacy and nonsense.  As we all know, there are many Glenn Beck wingnuts around here, so perhaps that explains why everyone finds that cartoon completely believable - same mentality at work.

Long term, I have no doubt that silver/gold will be a fantastic (perhaps the best) storage of wealth imaginable.  

Short term:  expect a MAJOR correction in those metals, as the unprecedented financial chaos around the world subsides. As soon as the nervousness about Spain is resolved, gold is going to correct.  

The major theme of the past 2/3 years has been the probable implosion of trillion dollar banks and governments losing control over their society.  That phase is ending.  The next major theme for the next few years is:  clean-up and responsibility. 

I'm waiting until gold retracts to $1000.  Then I'm in long-term.  

The fact that nearly everyone here seems think silver/gold cannot reverse into a bear phase within a long-term bull market is total lunacy.  But, of course, these are the same morons with more green beans buried in their back yard than the Jolly Green Giant.

I will DOUBLE my current positon, MINIMUM, if we get that correction.

We are not in a mania,Americans still are less than 10-15% in PM's.

I would say, more like 5% or less are IN.

They have been down the Hyper Inflation road, and World Wars in their yards, India didnt buy 200 Tons from the IMF@ $1,045.00, because their stupid, they know it will never see the southside of $1k again,in their realm.

PSLV is 100% silver. So, when a customer sends 3K, he buys 100oz. Whenever the price goes up or down is really immaterial since the fiat is converted to metal when it hits the fund (or sometime thereafter).

No PSLV is a closed fund. It has a given amount of silver vs a given amount of shares. If people pile in on PSLV, the price gets a premium (or discount in case they stampede out) vis the spot price of silver.

The good thing is that in a bull market, even dumb buying can make you look smart.

For instance, when I started buying gold and silver in 2002 I used Goldline (long before I had ever heard of Glen Beck). Did I overpay a little? Yes. Do I care? No, because the price of bullion has gone up 5-fold since then.

Is it possible to have a margin call when you can create as much money (or borrow at no cost) as you want?

 

Yes, its a serious question.

I also think Max Keisers campaign will not destroy JP Morgan, as they get as much money as they need (via the Fed) to cover all their short selling. However there might not be much physical silver around, but J.P. Morgan will still be alive

They will sell short the silver deposits on the Moon if need be

No amount of dollars will save them if longs stand for delivery.  That's assuming the rules are followed.

But of course, if you can't get silver from a long futures contract, then the exchange is broken anyways.  100 Quintillion dollars won't change that, unless it is used to buy silver off of the open market.

Rules don't mean much anymore.

 

What has to happen is people have to stop dollars and start using silver as the exchange principal.

Say, that's a great idea! But it will only be viable if first a whole lot of people from a wide demographic all pick up at least a little bit of silver. Now if someone could just figure out a way to encourage that to happen; some sort of interweb campaign or something that anyone who wanted could participate in...hmmm, hmmmm, hmmmm, damn this 'thinking' stuff is hard. Anyone have any suggestions?

Somewhere in their CRIMEX contracts there should be a way for JPM to settle things in cash so yes it's hard to crash them. The biggest goal remains as driving these Ponzi A-holes out of the market to end the paper manipulation.

99% of America never heard of Max Keiser,much less his war.

Its a nice attention getter, and is laudable on Max's part.

We are doing our best already, at least most are here.

Yes. Lets say you had an unlimited 0% credit line on your AMEX. You borrow 100k for gambling in vegas. You loose all 100k. The house demands payment. Now you have 100k debt. You have 2 choices. Quit gambling and find a way to earn the 100k to pay AMEX back or borrow more and hope you make it back. As a compulsive gambler, you borrow another 100k. You continue doing this until you are a cool mil in the hole. You now have 1 mil in debt. Even at 0% interest, you are still a mil in debt. So you have 2 choices. Default on the debt or demand more money from AMEX to pay the debt. Either way you are screwed. You are 1mil in debt. That is not going away unless you declare bankruptcy and default.

Even though the Fed creates money out of thin air, it is backed by some form of security. In the case of governments either currency swaps or bonds. In the case of JPM it is an unsecured credit line. It still has to be payed at some point. And any money you are now putting into paying that debt you can no longer use for gambling. 

The hope is to get them to leave silver the hell alone and move on to greener pastures in the hope to cover the debt. Eventually the maddoff blows up and they declare bankruptcy.
