ya think the naked shorts in the small cap gold stocks are beginning to panic? this wasn't supposed to ever happen...

they were supposed to get these stocks down to zero, cause no one wants gold or silver, right?

hi BEN! hi JAMIE!!!! HI CTFC!!!!!

I know a guy who worked at that exchange for years. It is basically impossible to cross non-production orders into a live system unless you INTEND TO TRADE. They have two segregated systems, he tells me, that are clearly isolated from each other. Being a major exchange, they aren't strangers to having PRODUCTION and QA systems on separate networks - so orders won't "cross" if they are testing, for example, an injector (code that produces flow for testing quote systems and the like).

The claim that they aren't busting trades, but it was a "mistake" is a big red flag. If on one hand everything they claim is right, then that means the Globex system has systemic flaws that need to addressed. On the other hand, it means you can just pop some orders in with your HFT algo and not give a damn.

I leave you to pick which is which.

That sounds more like it. And who's to say that they weren't attempting to move the metals down? I missed the part where they said the tests were designed to move things up. I'll bet they just failed and even got caught doing so. Double whammy.

You guys have to give up your fascination with Johnny Jizzpants. He's just an idiot, hemp-smoking, sandal-wearing, granola-eating student at sCUm.

Just ignore him. He'll go away. Like any precocious child, he craves your attention.

In the meantime, the dollar is sinking like a stone. That, combined with the silver supply squeeze, is sending gold much, much higher in the short term.

If there truly is a silver supply squeeze it's just going to get far far worse with a rising price. Panic will soon set in among the industrial users - they'll buy everything they can and hoard.  $100 an ounce here we come.

I do.  And I pull the silver inventory daily and peek before HO posts them. The Silver registered of 53 million ounces is crap. Most of that is leased from customers, double-counted,etc. I think they stopped being honest long ago. Why lease anything from customers if you have silver in stock?  

I agree with Harvey. I think they're on the edge.

I agree with your post about the leases, JLee.  As AgAuPM detailed in his blog, comex leased over 2Moz last week and it went out right away, why would they do that if the 50+Moz in their registered inventory was available.  Either they have it but no one is willing to part with it as these prices - or it isn't there.

My Lind-Waldock futures trading account.

They are probably looking at spot. The Oct10 contract has a high of 1270.9 and a last of 1268.

The Dec10 has a high of 1272.40.

The intraday high of the Oct10 contract was 1267.10 on 6/21/10. A daily close above that level would be big. A weekly close would be enormous.

Johnny Bravo? Where is that troll? He is like every other 22 year old troll I have seen over the years. Blah, Blah, Blah, then when he is wrong he dissappears. Its just annoying listening to the crap until then. However, as I said before I have 200 silver rounds that I bought 2 years ago. I am not selling them, it was for long term. So I don't get real excited about the daily noise. But it is nice to see 1260/gold and 20.00/silver finally crack. Interesting copper did not go with it. :)

A good source for a long term forecast for gold with accompanying videos in German:

The implication from this chart is that just around the end of 2010 to the start of 2011, there will be an inflationary surge into gold, while markets are deflating. (the log scale chart shows a little different- I know I posted it before, though some might have missed it.)

That co-incides with other results in examining inflation-adjusted long term charts of bear markets:

Conclusion:  Deflation.  Happens.  Now.

Jim Sinclair’s Commentary

Remember how stupid this sounded when I told you years ago that without any doubt Central Banks would act as they did in the 70s and become buyers?

I got many crude emails about that one.

Equally so, the reaction is fierce when I suggest the the gold market now is comparable to that of October 1979 to January of 1980.

That market condition set off the great gains in gold over a short period of time in that bull market. It is preparing to happen again.


I personnaly admire people with courage to speak up their case, so the man put his call in the public and everybody will be able to see if he was right or wrong and everybody will know his real name.

Can the same be said about all its blogs haters, Robotrader ?

Gold zips (NEM !) while the USD is getting ... killed. USDCHF breaks parity, USDJPY breaks 83 (Risk Off?) while AUDUSD is hitting highs on the way to .94 ... (Risk On?)

AND US 10 yr is rallying ... (Risk Off?) ... uhhh ...

Or, QE2 looms and Gonzalo Lira has stirred something up.

What is the sound of one hand clapping?

You know when you get smacked in the face by the Open HAND.

LOL!  JB, the self-proclaimed "Best Trader on ZH" predicted the market would start a new leg down last Friday.  Well, that didn't happen and when I pressed him on it, he changed his prediction to Monday.  JB is 0 for 2 and could be 0 for 3 if the market continues to rally today.


What a clown...  We need to stop acknowledging his presence and maybe he'll go away for good.  He's obviously only in it for the attention.

They will clearly bash on gold again when it hits a small correction from $1400.  The second gold makes a $10+ swing down, JB seems to magically appear.

I just saw Eric Ristuben from Russell Investments on CNBS. He just might possibly be the dumbest motherfucker I've ever seen on that channel. He says:

1) The double dip is over. The economy is back on track. Buy equities.

2) Has "no idea" why gold is trading higher. "There's no inflation on the horizon". As if the buyers of gold are only buying it as an inflation hedge. 

Does Sir Richard have any involvement in this company? If so, he should throw Ristuben out to street immediately. The dumbass is an absolute embarrassment to his firm.

thanks for mentioning how the small caps are doing.  there's a bunch of junior gold explorers traded in the US and/or Canada whose shares have finally started to display the gold price leverage investors have been waiting for.  several of these stocks are up more than 50% year-to-date, while gold is up "only" 16%.  this story, and the site in general, has a lot of good information on a bunch of these companies:

Aside from buying physical metal (while you can still afford and find it), buy Yukon gold/silver explorers. The Yukon's Tintina Gold Belt has already produced new finds in the White Gold district. This might be the hottest Area Play in the world right now. Recent finds by Underworld led to their being aquired by Kinross Gold and lit a fire under the pace of ongoing development.

The silver market will outperform gold because it's starting from an even more surpressed price. It is a beachball that's been held underwater but the kids are getting weary. It's also earlier in the process-- if Gold's rise is in the 5th inning, Silver's is in the 2nd. Look at these guys, bust a move before everyone else gets the idea, and enjoy the long ride up...

ALSO, you may want to check out this must listen rundown of the Yukon Area Play, the opportunity, and some of the key players there. Eric Coffin of provides a wealth of information. Buying and selling explorers at the right time is a great way to make returns in an otherwise stifling market. I'm a customer of the HRA Advisory monthly newsletter, I've improved my returns dramatically. The 75 bucks per quarter is an extremely good value for the quality of the information provided

gold is in permanent and severe backwardation due primarily to the debasement of the currency and the destruction of a free market - specifically in interest rates.

the wicked banksters and politicians have bled america dry with transfer payments of 24+ trillion usd to the banksters...and this says nothing of the policies which de-industrialized america starting in the 1970s....

i will repeat that america is finished as a great is composed of the most foolish and ignorant buttholes god ever created....but there will be a last grasp at power - just as the evil emperor of japan did in the days leading up to and following hiroshima and nagasaki - probably a war some place in the middle east.....
