Is This Why Gold Dumped And Stocks Pumped Today?

Tyler Durden's picture





 

In the pre-market this morning, Gold had outperformed the S&P 500 by over 200bps for the month. By the close today (month-end settlement T-3) - given how synchronized gold and stocks have become - Gold and the S&P 500 will be perfectly unchanged for the month. Whether this morning's plunge in Gold (and rip in stocks) was the unwind of a major hedged position (or vice versa) is unclear - but the coincident reaction around the election suggests today's Gold move (and stock move) had a lot to do with each other - no matter how much they are blamed on cliff schizophrenia...

S&P in ounces of gold - unch for the month now thanks to today... equities were bid up into the election (outperforming Gold by over 4% in the first few days), gave it all back and then some as Obama's election was announced - to underperform by over 4%; the last few days of silence from DC and today's snap managed bring the two Fed-sensitive markets back together again...

 

as they recoupled this morning...

Pretty clear from today's turnaround based on nothing but hot air that when the photo op for the deal is done in a week or so that the markets will be off to the races.  Greece is fixed, Santa is coming and consumers can spend like there is a tomorrow sans cliff....

Fractional Reserve Bankster's Paradise

by Benny & The Inkjets

As I walk through the valley of the shadow of debt
I take a look of my life, and realize there's nuthin' left
'Cuz I've been brassin' and laughing so long that
Even my laid off BofA teller thinks my mind's gone


But I ain't never crossed a central bankster who didn't deserve it
Used to cap them in the ass, you know that's not unheard of


You'd better watch how you're talking and where you walking

I really hate to trip but dope fiat took my hope

What was I thinkin', should've bought more gold

 

As they print I see myself in the ink smoke, FOOL.
I'm the kind of g that little homies wanna be as I swagger up near 33 Liberty
Like on my knees in the night sayin prayers under Marriner Eccles street lights

Yeaaa...

[Chorus]

Been spending most their lives livin in a Fractional Reserve Bankster's Paradise

Been spending most their lives livin in a Fractional Reserve Bankster's Paradise

Keep spending most their lives livin in a Fractional Reserve Bankster's Paradise

My cousin, Omar, told me he started reading Zero Hedge a few months ago (congrats Omar) and has come up with a brilliant plan. Brilliant he says.

He has been following the comments section and realized that so many people have lost their precious metals in boating/canoeing accidents that he just bought some Scuba gear and an underwater metal detector and won’t tell me until he gets to the hot spot to seek out the lost treasures at the bottoms of lakes and rivers.

Omar called about an hour ago and said he’s in….…..Tippecanoe County in Indiana and is convinced that he will be wealthy.

I said Omar Fahking Ghosh (that’s his name you know) don’t you realize that Indiana is huge and has soo many lakes and rivers you’ll never find these lost treasures and besides how do know it’s all there in Indiana?

He said Ali don’t be so stupid, why would they call it Tippecanoe if that wasn’t what was happening.

Good Luck to you Omar.

It's not a market any longer . And Gold/Silver were sold down (Naked Short papar) by the Bullion Banks, most notably JPM, at the COMEX open in a coordinated dump to discourage longs from standing for delivery ahead Fridays First Notice Day (FND) for taking delivery. Done on a Wednesday so that the OIT, which runs weekly through Tuesdays, can be adjusted before it is published again next Tuesday.

No offense but that article was retarded. Gold went down one day after he made that call so if you want to give that guy credit, feel free. But his reasoning that gold will go down is....

"if the Fed were to even suggest that it is contemplating a reversal of its quantitative easing (which could be accomplished by raising the rate it pays on reserves, or by draining reserves), then gold would be quite vulnerable to losses. Gold today is a very expensive inflation hedge."

Is this not the easiest explanation? Turkey was going to pay Iran in gold for nat gas exports. But the cartel got angry because they were left out of their fair share and therefore, the US threatened to sanction Turkey if they did. Someone had been accumulating gold for that purpose and somebody knew that, as it would no longer be required, it would have to fall and frontran the move.

Another variation of the theory is that Iran received that gold, had to fire sell it and was frontrun....

TBTB know that as long as there is no alternatve to UST's and equities they can borrow as much as they want and devalue the USD as much as they want. BUT, if an alternative were to become viable, like gold, then money would flood out of these over valued and over rated (AAA really ?)assets.

If the banks "rule the fuckin' world" then gold doubles in value as an asset starting 01 Jan. Think about what I'm sayin' here. NOT surprised to see $1680s prior. BTFDs.

the 'divdend' of gold (physical) is that if you have it in your possession then you will still have something when paper wealth goes wobbly...

So in other words its all totaly meaningless and owned totaly by the FED, including gold....so really no point in paying any attention to any of it at all....where they want everything is where they'll put it, and you're just along for a back seat ride no matter what you do.

Year to date, the algos and PPT have been swapping assets with each other at the speed of collocated fiber optics.

Those Algos are run by the big banks and governments, and they want your money.

In the words of WOPR itself  "Strange game. The only winning move is not to play."

 If gold keeps getting plowed like this on dollar weakness, I'm heading back, later this week, for a few more rolls of Maple Leafs!

 

   It's kind of a "Fuck YOU" central bankers,   Carney [Squid Face],    BoE indoctrination/hazing!!!

 

     BoC > (commodity based central bank head) ,  moves to ultra dovish> BoE?   No laughs?  Me neither...

When priced in euro, the currency of the largest market on earth, gold's beating is ever worse today. But then again, why would you need gold when debt is wealth?

What is going to happen to this market when all those companies paying special dividends go ex-div?  Isn't the future growth rate of dividends naturally lower once all that money is paid out before the end of the year?

From Jim Sinclair's Mail Box today: (You really should click on the link to see the charts):

"...Richard outdoes himself in this report. Now they are calling it a roll over that was executed not as a spread but as an outright sale. That was such a bold manipulation that even they have to come up with an excuse.

Richard is right. That is what is called “an operation.”

Those watching the precious metals markets (this excludes the CFTC) are well aware of yesterday’s options expiry for Gold and Silver on the COMEX, and the Friday “first day notice” just ahead…and some violent ‘games’ by the Cartel in the paper markets were duly expected.

This morning Blythe apparently unleashed her heavily-caffeinated flying monkeys to ‘game’ the markets. Completely incredible paper volume in view of existing physical supply. In seconds. Good morning!

Oh, did I say ‘physical?’
– Yesterday’s Manfra ‘force majeure’ excuse (one of COMEX’s five bullion stores) for non-delivery of physical bullion should (in a regulated, unmanipulated market) have sent the spot price of Gold several hundred dollars higher, but it looks like the Banksters have discovered Bennie’s secret CTRL+P trick of creating binary electronic digits out of thin air…beats mining with a pick and shovel, eh?

These are no longer markets as price-discovery vehicles, but more resemble playing naked-twister with sociopaths and crooks.
– The MF Global and LIeBOR frauds were just a small ‘taste’ of what’s coming when it is discovered that the paper masters of the universe have hypothecated and rehypothecated physical bullion (both private and sovereign) many times over. [For CFTC regulators read: it's long gone and many are not going to get it back, ever.]..."
