The upside is the high correlation between this insanity and the recent declines of the equity markets. Maybe there is some code written into the algos that turn them into selling monsters when they see gold get sucker-punched.

In less but still precious news:


Report: States Can Get More Than $9 From Feds for Every $1 They Spend Under Obamacare


WASHINGTON - States will receive more than $9 in federal money for every $1 they spend to cover low-income residents under President Barack Obama's health care law, according to a nonpartisan analysis released Monday.


I mean, it's not as if we have any sort of ginormous, unpayable federal debt at present, or aren't actually adding to it at 1.3 trillion (soon to be 1.6 trillion) per annum, amIright?

Fire up that modern electronic equivalent of the fiat printer, Bernank. Get busy Monetizing, bitch, or get busy dying!!

CNBC reported "someone" sold 15,000 contracts. Anyway, it moved the price down only 30 dollars. The amounts needed to move the price down continue to grow larger and the net effect is smaller it seems to me.

Not an expert here but have been watching gold today and being a small potatoes guy, I'm thinking it is a good time to buy. If the clowns can't come up with some agreement will gold coninue to go south? I plan on watching it and buy a sack of 1/10 or 1/4 oz  pieces. Does anyone here have any advise on either size and in case everything goes south what size is best for using or bartering. Could use some help here

gold will not be useful in day-to-day transactions so do not bother and buy it in 1 Oz or  bigger

Wed, 11/28/2012 - 14:06 | 3017936 EINSILVERGUY

I don't agree completely. The bulk should be 1oz AGE or maples. You should have some 1/10 and 1/4th ounce AGE as a bridge.

Start with 90% dimes, quarters, halves and a few silver dollars(premuims are too high to buy a lot of these)

Then move to 1 oz ASE, Maples, Phils, then 5 and 10oz bars . Anything higher than 10oz bars might be problematic for daily or medium purchases.

The 1/10 and 1/4's can be used for purchases of equal to or more than 5 oz based on a  StoG ratio of 50:1 which will come down if SHTF



Wed, 11/28/2012 - 15:09 | 3018131 FEDbuster
FEDbuster's picture

1/10 AGE goes for about $200. in today's FRNs.  What do you buy day to day for $200.?  A 1 oz AGE is about $1800., what do you buy each day that is that amount?

I would say your best barter coin value is the pre-1964 90% silver quarter, current value $6.  Often times dealers will sell for silver value or a slight premium.  I have two local places that will sell for spot value, if buying over 10 coins at a time.  Silver is for barter, gold is for wealth preservation.  Also, food and bullets are good barter items to stock up on. They both have been going up in price over the past few years.

Bansters-in-my- feces's picture

@ klockwerks. I think buying one oz bullion coins is the best way.

1/10s and 1/4s have too much premium on them,you have to hold a long time to make that premium back up.

1/2s are not bad but still higher premium.

You want to buy gold to save your wealth not to spend like fiat.

You should only sell when you are in need of fiat.

Maple leafs are good and krugerands,any soverign,but I would stay away from the American Gold Eagle.....

Well,because it is american.

Even the eagle on it must hate it.

This is a gift for buyers of physical. Some day, you'll be wishing you had the chance to buy gold at $1,700, not $5,700. Be happy that the manipulation has allowed us to buy as much as we can at these levels.

Totally normal action.  I'll bet contracts representing something like a month or two's worth of global production were just dumped in one trade.

Nothing suspicious about that.  Just the 'Dr Evil' strategy in action.  Again.

Of course since yesterday was Options Expiry, and since it is traditional to smack those whose options were converted into futures contracts in the face, this is not unexpected.  In fact I was expecting it and just made some nice money.

Big difference between paper and physical.  With a dollar cost average of under $300.  My store of value and purchasing power is still very much intact.  A bond auction must be met, that's the sound of gold heading east in exchange for some more paper promises.

Stupid fucking sheep.

and why is the CRIMEX Price the official price, why not a real on the spot physical price.  Seems the miners would benefit most by having a exchange which actually delivers physical gold  --- non-tungsten not imaginery futre contract.

Also - the massess can't afford Gold. Fuck, they probably can't afford 5oz of silver!


The masses are in DEBT! as a whole.


They can't even comprehend going to the bank to withdraw $1,800 (which they dont have) and then go to the coin shop to slap it down for a 1oz AGE round...that it is fuckin insane to the massess.


That gives me and should other ZedHeds - we are in tune and are in the know.

This applies to any producer of real goods and services. Fuck the god damn paper-pushing fucks and middlemen. The American collapse will be simialr to the collapse of the former Soviet Union.  Go long black markets (where you can purchase goods directly from producers).  Free markets and Nature always win in the end.

Precisely. Drop Gold to ~1600 and Silver to ~25 and I'm converting green to shiny as fast as I can find supply.

What will be funny is if the price fully recovers by session close as the Chinese fully take advantage of the gift given to them by the NY Banksters.

It is kind of funny that whoever's doing that is actively aiding China's eventual supremacy in the world.  Once China updates its gold holdings and does some sort of gold denominated currency, the flight from the USD will make their head spin.  And then it will be our turn to make shitty plastic stuff for their consumers.

It's being done intentionally. This is a take down of the USA, internally, by the bankers, NWO, and UN Agenda 21 types. Individualism v. collectivism. in the USA, the sociopaths and psychopaths are in charge. Fraudulent elections, impossible debt, etc. take down of republic in real-time. Will probably end with either a military coup or a civil war. I don't see any other way from this point, to be honest. But what is at end, at the very least, is the USA as a hegemonic power. That's the optomistic scenario.

I agree, though. The masses are too lazy, clueless, and unarmed for civil war, so I think coup is more likely.

People in America in general are lazy fucks, no civil war.  Don't overthink this collapse, it will be very simliar to what happened with the soviet union.  Life goes on.  The black markets will simply grow.  Fuck the god damn paper-pushers, they have scripted and profitted from such collapses before, and so long as fiat floods the earth and is excepted in exchange for real goods and services, they will continue to do so as there are no real consequences for bad behavior.  Stupid fucking sheep.

I generally agree with your comments, but here I take issue.  The Soviet Union didn't have JIT delivery and Dancing with the Stars.  When the food deliveries stop and the boob tube don't work no more, blood will literally run in the streets.  No, it won't be a civil war.  It will be neighbors killing neighbors, devolving into neighbors eating neighbors.

I used to think this, but the more I research China, the less I think they're capable of economic supremacy, at least without a war that results in them acquiring Australia and NZ, though slow infiltration into those property/asset markets might be tilt power in their favor without war (kind of like how they're strategically blowing up our bond market). Russia is a wolf in sheep's clothing...that relationship is precarious and can turn any moment. They have major structural, political, and immature civil issues that were pushed to the back-burner during the euphoria of high growth. A lot of economists I respect love China long-term. I see the case, but it's not as cut and dry as they make it seem.

Government strategy:

If a coming slug of bad economic news will speed people trading paper for tangible, then slam the market first before releasing the news.

After the news hits, the market is right back where it was and your paper still has some value.

It was comex option expiration yesterday and gold mini expiration today.  This is normal activity as traders close positions.  The turbulence will end by tomorrow and likely turn up as new positions are established.

there's the problem for countries or SWF, get the physical in size.  For individuals this is perfect.  For large buyers, getting delivery 'aka Hurrican Sandy excuse' or other delays or salted tungsten bars is a major problem.  Maybe they go straight to the miners.  Just seems like the crimex price is usuable for small sellers/buyers or paper day traders, not real physical delivery.

Exactly what large buyers have been doing.Direct deals with the miners

bypassing the MLME and CRIMEX.

Nobody has any idea of China's holdings because of it,we can only guess.

We only see imports thru' Hong Kong.China has plenty of other entry points,

Because people wakeup , drink coffee and instantly rush to their computer to sell off their paper gold holdings.


I wonder, do people wakup 8:30 in the morning throw all their gold into a shopping bag and drive to their local "we buy gold for cash" place at 9 AM?




Its pure BS

Does anyone really even count a 30$ move as a "move" ? for gold? because I count that as noise, It really doesnt even catch my attention really.... unless its like a 200 $ move in the price.... 

When the move on the price of the metal is less than the spot premium + delivery fee... I mean... who cares ? 30$ is like an ant trying to move a mountain.... doesn't mean anything.
