    Crude oil time-spreads have completely dislocated from inventories. Historically, such dislocations have proved to be short lived. We expect that either spot prices will sell-off again or the back...

Stored Pomo cash from earlier in the day. I cannot see how buying equities in this market as June closes in and oil rises as doing anything but throwing money down a hole.

I guess holding cash is like throwing money down a hole. Holding stocks will at least keep your value or outperform.

Right.  I think going forward it's PMs (physical obviously)>>>>>>stocks>>>>cash>bonds.  Holding stocks isn't the worst idea ever, it certainly beats a savings account and most likely bonds as well. 

For all the hysteria around here about PMs, if you bought stocks back near the lows, you are doing very well and could quite easily cash out now and get a nice amount of PMs.  But with stocks it's going to be all about timing.  They could blow up at any point and crash hard.  I don't see PMs going down any time soon, if ever, at least not physical.  Paper might crash but physical most certainly won't be going down substantially for a good while, if ever. 

Also you can't really "run out" of shares of stock, there will always be plenty for you to buy.  Physical PMs, not so much.  So yeah PMs rule, but stocks have been going up for a while, and every time bad news comes out they seem to charge higher and higher.  Yet we all act surprised, even though we know it's all due to Ben and the BoJ and everyone else printing up shittons of fiat. 

Disclaimer: I am short the market, and have been for about 2 weeks.  Hoping for a huge plunge so I can cash out and buy more PMs...but I am done putting on shorts for now and simply buying up PMs every week or so as I can afford it.

Silver makes a higher high, but gold fails to do so...  Hmm...

Be careful, or just buy and turn off the computer until you have more cash to buy PMs with...

Thats because they are using Silver as a proxy too keep Mom and Pop off of Gold.

It's obrigado, without "m".

By the way, the Japanese word "arikato" (or arigatou) originated from the Portuguese "obrigado", through the contacts with the Portuguese navigators in the 17th century.

See? There is a clear conection between Fukushima and what's happening in Portugal!

Portuguese PM announced a few minutes ago that he is meeting the President at 19.00 and will come on TV at 20.00 GMT for a statement.

Here's the skinny: Government falls today. Portugal has less than 4 BN EUR in cash and has to pay over 4 BN EUR bonds early in April.

Without a Government, POrtugal cannot request a bailout.

Elections will take 2 months to call, plus another 1 month for the government to take office.

Really cool.

Alternative: the President appoints for a "presidential initiative government" without elections, sending democracy to the bin, mandating this new "salvation government" to get the bailout, drinking the kool aid.

Total fiasco.

Meanwhile, Constancio at the ECB will keep on extending "support" by purchasing more debt.... to pay for debt.

Who thinks its snowing in lower Manhattan today?  Its a flock of black swans sprinkling us with their radioactive BTFD dust.
