See 15APR2013s inventory of 100 ozt. bars on APMEX graphically. People sure took advantage of the sale!

 If you want to buy bulk and get better deals avoid APE MEX...APE MEX is good if you want to purchase a couple of ounces...

Try they ship for free and also lower premium costs around....And no I am not a shill for Tulving...just letting everyone know that a better deal exists if you intend to buy in bulk...

Seriously ZH?

I'm not saying we aren't in deep doo-doo but when you make lame comparisons like this you start to undermine the ability of people to take you seriously. 

Two aspects of two very dissimilar charts that track different indexes from two different points in history showing brief similarity!!??  Call my broker!!!!  (sarc)

It worked for MSFT -> AAPL and what’s dissimilar in highly correlated markets? My read of NASDAQ and S&P 500 is nearly 99% correlation:

I see every reason to expect the outcome depicted.

Except they were virtually out of silver when the weekend started. No eagles or maples. Most everything else was gone too. But yes Tulving has best premiums for big orders.
Also his website was down for the better part of the weekend too.

Tulving sucks.

They promise next day shipping but 2 out of my 3 orders were shipped 3 day ground. The little green boxes were dated almost a month after my last order, so how can that be in stock. I called Karen everyday and would get a "confirmed shipment date" only to have that come and go. Maybe if your ordering millions of $ worth you get a price break otherwise they are the exact same price as everyone else. Never again.

I have not had a problem with Tulving.  Used them several times.  Place Order. Wire funds. Tulving normally ships within a day or two (they don't ship on Fridays) of your funds clearing.  Product comes Overnight-Air, registered and insured.  No problem.

IMHO: One of the many factors that contributed heavily to the popping of the tech bubble was the "Milennium Bug" and the fact that many companies spent many millions on new hardware & software to avoid any problems. After the turn of the century the volume of new tech sales dropped like a stone, and so did the "market". This time things are different.


It's always good to be underestimated.

  There are too many checks and balances in place for a collapse.  A grass roots organization can't collapse these markets and no one is is going to do it, the government has enticed every independant player into their web.  Even if huge inertia was created by massive withdrawals from major banks and soft equity investment pulls, the glitch mob would cook the markets until they're so chewy a pirhana couldn't tear 'em apart. 


  Stop wishing and start hedging your commodities with shorts and currency trading.  And for the love of God, don't buy bitcoin -- It's like a fucking pog.

The market is "undervalued" because it can never appreciate in this environment.  Each day the dollar is worth less so any company that owns plant and equipment is worth more each day.  

Inflation is in stock prices but we keep looking for it in commodities because that is where it traditionally would show up.

That is if the company actually owns the plant, and equipment.

AFAIK most businesses these days don't own much of anything - They're just processes that keep workers / people running inside a squirrel-cage of revolving credit.

Lets face it, they always say "there is a lot of money on the side lines" WRONG...

Most "not all", but most of the companies listed on the exchanges could not survive without people and or funds from pensions, 401K's, other corporate investments, oh, and the big one THE GOVERNMENT. Which in reality is not really theirs, it is in fact investors money. If the market was crashing like it has before, their funds dry up, and then they go under.

There is a false sense that these Corporations are doing great, it is the liquid injection from the FED that is getting them there.

From 1999 lyrics. Interesting in light of the past few days...


But when I woke up this mornin'
Coulda sworn it was judgment day

Tryin' to run from the destruction
You know I didn't even care

'Cuz they say two thousand zero zero party over
Oops out of time
So tonight I'm gonna party like it's 1999

War is all around us
My mind says prepare 2 fight

Yeah, everybody's got a bomb
We could all die any day
But before I'll let that happen
I'll dance my life away

We keep seeing the ame doom and gloom, I have been getting my ass handed to me with a short position and anytime I have a glimmer of hope the market will, again, be a market my hope is dashed .

This could go on for ten more years!!!!! Just likie Japan.

Look at it from the other side. They must be in really deep shit pumping this for 5 years and stil done nothing. Things
Are even worse than then.

All you need is keep away and watch. Time is on our side.

Wow, 2 graphs on top of one another.  I guess that's supposed to mean something, or something...

You could have just as easily overlaid gold on that, or oil, or Apple, or whatever.  I hate this stupid snide statements of "presented with no comment" bullshit.  Like there's something that is blatantly obvious based on a logical fallacy.

I would not short this Frankenstein.  Belay that noise.  March 2000 did not have the U.S. Fed buying everything in sight as part of a stated aim to keep equity markets up.  They will not let it happen naturally.  Think you can guess when/if the Fed 'Lets it go' ?  Good luck to you.  Today was yet another example why I covered my short yesterday morning.

Santelli is just the sock puppet on the other hand.  Get real.  They all pile into Towne Cars at the end of the day and uptown they go to pop four-figure champagne bottles together.  He's not your friend.

Go to the store and you notice what was once a 16 oz bag of vegtables is now 12 oz.

Cans have shrunk as well.

Who said there was no inflation?

That's so dumb. Mess around with the scale and you can make anything fit over anything. This one doesn't even fit that well as the two big S&P corrections in 2012 aren't matched by the nasdaq. We all know the market is going down soon but this kind of poorly reasoned stuff is meat and drink to the skeptics.

Uganda be kitten me.  Take a chart, resize the axis, overlay it on something else, then say that the future is already written.  Could be done to make gold look like a treasury bill fund since 2009 if you try hard enough.

Conceptually this works well if you compare different windows of the time series, and normalize the price levels to account for the changing dollar metric over time. There then emerge similar price patterns that have predictive value. Comparing two different time series in that way is a bit simplistic.

And it works. It worked for me predicting gold’s future price for 2 years nearly to the day. It worked for Tyler predicting AAPL’s peak & crash nearly to the day.

That’s what real technical analysis is built from, not this nonsense “cup and handle” or “head and shoulders” BS.

80% the Fibonacci stuff is poorly applied too.

NASDAQ went five times over a three year period.


S&P500 is retracing its drop from 2009.


Bit of difference.  Nonetheless the point is made.

You should drop in the QE dates, just for those new to the game.

Seriously Tyler?The shape maybe the same,but S&P from 1250 to 1585 is 25%,NAS from 1500 to 4500 is 200%.

Not exactly comparing apples with apples is it?Or is this this just troll bait?

Rising stock markets just reflect a redistribution of wealth and income.  I don't know about the short term, seems like the TPTB have a lot more redistributing they can do.

...ah...1999...when a person could get a real job with bennies.  Those were the days.  Now underemployment is the new national pastime.  If the present chart resolves as the earlier one did, our country will be much less financially resiliant than it was at the turn of the century.  Economic winter is coming.  Is it here, now?

The matching of the lines is only achieved by manipulating the data. The right-hand scale (Nasdaq) shows an increase of 200 percent from trough to peak, whereas the left-hand scale (S&P) shows an increase of less than 25 percent. It's meaningless.
