    There is unfortunately no basis for renewed optimism that this current litigation will have any meaningful impact on precious metals manipulation – with respect to either silver or gold.

stupid, make more money shorting cyclicals (crude, etc). then  wait for good time to go back into cyclicals. I like enegy because it has the "biggest" cycle.

I'm taking a victory lap here bitchez as every data point confirms my theory about Biflation aka Inflationary Depression aka Not Your Father's Stagflation.

This week two very key data points confirmed that not only is there deflation in real incomes and net worth as reflected by Residential RE values, but that the extent of that deflation has now outstripped the 1930s: 

-IBD confirms that the over the preceding 10 years personal incomes slid more than during the 1929-1938 interval.  LINK

-And the decline in home values from their 2006 peak to present has exceeded the peak to trough decline in their value during the Great Depression (Capital Economics, Paul Dales)  LINK

And yet it's undeniable that there is inflation in the cost of living, the cost of working and the cost of doing business. It's confirmed every day in reports from businesses reporting that margins are getting squeezed and in the global ISMs. 

In this climate, it won't be necessary to have hyperinflation for an economic collapse. THe threshold is lower.

Good points.  I'm amazed at the level of corruption and incompetence in our leaders, and complacency in the public.  The short term stock market gain is nothing compared to the long term damage done.

First, they've made any recovery all but impossible in order to do a massive transfer of wealth to bankers, multinational corp's, and military contractors. 

How is housing supposed to recover when salaries are lower, when inflation soaks up everyone's spare cash, when increasing regulations force you to buy more expensive items than you need, and when bankers gobble up our national treasure?  We sit on an even bigger bubble now - Which most people don't even want to think about.

I think the plan is two fold. Don't let housing recover while inflating the cost of housing as much as they can.

The sheeple who bought in will forfeit and comply to pay rent. All is with purpose. TBTP have their script.

Remember Charlie, "Now that we have bailed out civilization, the people must suck it up and cope".

Their solution? More of the same, more intensely. 

The priority is #1 save the banks (and Wall Street) and those living off the fat. That guides every decision. All else is irrelevant. The so-called Fed mandates are, well, disregarded (maybe trampled on in private, who knows?)

The Euro co-conspirators are playing out the next steps perfectly: bail Greece in return for ownership. Of course they know there's no chance that even those loans can ever be repaid, so they'll be back asking for more....the women maybe?

Goldmean Sucks, what a name, what a time.
But how come they make all these winning trades and all those losing recommendations?

Must be the inversion effect. Somewhere.
What a ponzi.
I want to launch a iznop scheme.

It all started the day that one monkey asked the other monkey which coconut shell the banana was under. The rest is a matter of record. But they're still playin the same game. I'll consult on your iznop scheme :-)

"Utilities and Consumer Staples as the long le(g) in a compression trade, while shorting Industrials and Consumer Discretionary."

ok, but some of the retail SSS (same.store.summary) [The Consumer Contraction Begins: May Same Store Sale Summary - 12 Misses, 5 Beats]  showed weakness, for the month, in middle-of-the-road retail with stregth in the high end stuff.   and here, the G/Sachs.kostin S&P bottom 10 sub-performing sub-sectors for the week looked pretty consumer staple-y to moi.  and the utilities took a 1.4% stumble, too.  however, with the DJI and S&P each -2.4%;  MS Cyclicals -4%. 

did i miss the chartporn where the DJI = + 5% and the dollar = - 6.6%?

gold inched upward on the week and is +8.5% for 2011;  silver is + 17%.

silver took a 4% weekly hit during and after a most sorry-assed, pathetic try @ the 50 dma.  is our little darlin planning a Summer of play til it's time to make hay?

Regarding the section on ETFs in the report.   Amatures.
