Gold And Silver Tumble Most In A Month

Tyler Durden's picture




 

UPDATE: Some chatter that the earlier drop occurred around a story on the overhauling the London Gold fix (amid all the manipulation talk).

With no apparent news - who needs news - the precious metals market participants have decided that now is the time to sell, sell, sell in huge volume and all of a sudden... Gold is down 1.3% - its biggest drop in a month; and silver is down 2.8% - its biggest drop in 5 weeks. Gold has dropped back down to test its 50DMA and silver has crossed back down through it. Bonds are modestly bid, stocks ar enot moving on this collapse and the USD is hardly budging.

"There is no subtler, no surer means of overturning the existing basis of society than to debauch the currency. The process engages all the hidden forces of economic law on the side of destruction, and does it in a manner which not one man in a million is able to diagnose."

Is it any surprise to ANYONE, that BANKERS engage in the DESTRUCTIVE SIDE of HUMAN BEHAVIOR??? 

Just a thought.

I find the whole gold manipulation story quite amusing. Every narcisist has a reason why he or she cannot or should not lose. The narcisistic gold investor is no different. At every turn of the market, he is either vindicating his ridiculousl elaborate conspiracy theories or crying about the powers that be 'confiscating' his unrealised profits. Every investor hates to lose, but goldbugs are a special kind of loser. They're not just bitter about losing, they genuinely convinced that the universe owes them a return.

They could of course, just invest in Bitcoin which is not manipulated.  Take profits and buy 0ldcoin if that's what they want to do.... but of course that would break their simple little dollar-gold minds in a million pieces.

Bitcoin, simplest buy-and-hold ever.

I'd bet that in 500 (maybe 50) years people/governments will develop the means to convert other elements into gold. It has already been done successfully, just not profitable at this time. You really want to see manipulation? Better cover your options.

If at this stage you are not COMPLETELY conviced that PM's are highly manipulated to maintain control of a colapsing fiat monetary system then you probably have no business owning any precious metals besides personal jewelry - I would recommend that at this point you stop reading here, close out Zero Hedge and turn on MSNBC.  

If on the other hand you are awake and can see that not only are we waist-deep in manipulation but ever-nearer to a Global Monetary Colapse, then you should be COMPLETELY convinced that it's only a question of time before TPTB lose the ability to continue said manipulation.  If this is the case you should like me be rooting for the price of PM's to go down so you can aquire more.  Rather than complaing about the manipulatuion, be thankful for it and continue to increase your holdings. After all, the day TPTB finally lose control, the world will become a much sadder place and comforts which we now enjoy will go away for the majority of the people of this world. The best part of all this is that even if we are wrong about the current economic situation (which all evidence proves we are not) your life will be no worse for having a large horde of Gold and Silver.

Compared to the overall Global market cap Gold is small piece. It will be easy to manipulate until the physical market is totally locked up. When that happens it will be game over, but I am sure the bankers will have their fair share.

Gold and silver may be getting beat down in thin pre-market trading, what's interesting is that miners are up anyway.  A rise in miners on a down day for gold increases confidence that the recent rise in miners may be the start of a real trend, and rises in gold and silver are often preceded by rises in miners.  In other words, it's a good day to buy physical!

Not when it's going to get monkey hammered, but yes it is an insult.  Just convince them that they would be better off buying BTC and selling gold to me is worth a "consulting fee" to knock off the premium from spot.

Step 1: Sell paper promises for gold/silver

Step 2: Buy physical gold/silver

Step 3: Open a beer and ????

Step 4: Real profit

If you buy 400 oz bars, even Kitco will sell $6 over spot.  Look elsewhere, and negotiate, you can do $4 or less.  Paper price works just fine for them.

If you are retail, however, expect to pay the retail spread.  You've been led astray by the Promoters.

And JPM will just keep on buying. Gold and Silver both actually. Normally I would say the same is true for Morgan/Stanley too...but that might have to be done on a trader per trader BASIS. We'll see how much longer the energy folks can keep up the "energy trading complex." They're are only so many cold weather blasts per year left now...and once springtime hits there will be a lot of people growing their own food, turning off the electricity, buying propane and simply no longer paying their taxes. If that doesn't work they'll abandon the property...although its hard to see how that's worth anything to anybody. "long smelting." and i ain't talking fish.

t'other way 'round. Ending QE will crash the stock market. People will rotate out of stocks and into bonds, driving the interest rate down.

That would appear to be the plan, if there are enough people to "rotate".

Liabilities still need to be funded, and they can't be if interest rates go up much more.

Perhaps if they wanted people to "rotate" they shouldn't have killed the market in the first place?

Naturally.  When the PM markets are reveale to be fraudulent, people will get out of them.  Lots of paper contracts being dumped.  This will end either with PM prices at "zero" or with the exchanges shutting down and forcing cash settlement of all outstanding contracts.

Only then can we have true price discovery.

And for the idiots out there, no, you won't be able to get PMs at spot prices during this time, if at all.

"When the PM markets are reveale to be fraudulent, people will get out of them."

When the commodity doesn't have to be delivered (dollars can be delivered instead), it's no longer a commodity market, it's a casino game, just betting on what a number will be at some date in the future.

Knowing Fed's desire to keep the imaginary "spot price" low on gold /silver to make USD appear stronger, and people are willing to accept that imaginary "spot price" for real gold / silver, it's the bargain of a lifetime, buy whatever you can afford.

When will this imaginary "spot price" casino game end?   When USD loses reserve currency status.  Not before.

If you know when USD will lose reserve status, you can wait till just before that moment to buy real gold / silver and get the lowest price.

I don't know when USD will lose reserve status, but I know it will happen suddenly, and there won't be any warning signs / signals / etc.

Actually there might be a signal.  Another gold confiscation EO in America.  I half way expect it.  If it does happen, I can guarantee USD is about to lose reserve status.

You can buy all the Gold and Silver you want at the paper price right now. Because the paper price is the only price there is. Of course if you insist on buying coins and trinkets you're going to pay more for them; but the quoted price is for bullion; 1000oz. bars in the case of Silver. The PM markets are not fraudulent; we already have true price discovery. there are some nice free energy motors on U-Tube you might be interested in.

Correct; or as we say sometimes, long term bottom formation. a trading range with a possible double bottom. I would guess the odds are 70/30 the price will be higher this Christmas than it is now. When you leave out all the wiggles and jiggles we're just watching the world's opinion of the dollars' buying power; which has been declining since 1913; unless you can think of a reason why that won't continue, the odds favor a lower value for the dollar; or as we say, a higher Silver "price".

Despite all the positive Gold stories in the news and especialy the German Gold repatriation problems, the weekly slapdown continues.

This is the continued slap in the face, perpetual middle finger raised to the face of all who wish true price discovery for the PM. It is meant to display the power of the Central Banksters, FED and BIS for all the "little people" to see and fear.

Governments will NOT regulate, Banksters are not held accountable and most important of all, it reinforces the statement that, THERE IS NOTHING ANYONE CAN DO TO STOP IT.

Silver should continue to move sideways / up (same for gold) as it completes its next move up.

Expect to see big swings as stops get picked off before the next move higher - the trend higher may last a few more months

The system is 100% rigged, therefore YOU won't know whats up. Buy it, stash it and wait for the big reset. In the meantime, STOP TRYING TO OUTGUESS THE RIGGED MARKET!

I've changed my thinking.  Every time the price goes down I think that soon we will get true physical PM price discovery via the difference between the paper price and the physical premiums.  Every time the price goes up I start thinking OK lots of spec longs coming back into the market and the paper ponzi is on again.  Unless we get some real defaults here this is all I read into price changes.  I like the dips better for the phys buying opportunity but even my LCS has higher premiums than a year ago.

I saw an article this weekend about how central banks were leasing gold out to big banks in the 1990's in exchange for IOUs and a token amount of interest. The gold was transferred at cheap 1990's prices, leading the author to speculate that central banks may not have much physical gold today. The big banks then sold that gold and used the money for more speculative investments. (There are many such similar stories)

This made me think about how the big banks would act in 2008/2009 and how they would act today. Maybe, the big banks said to the Fed in 2008/2009 something like "if you want to ever see all your gold again, don't let us go under." Thus the TARP and QE bailouts - as much to save the Fed's gold as the banks themselves. And today the big banks are looking at getting out of commodities, but need to buy much more expensive gold to give 'back' to the Fed to replace what they borrowed. Thus the attempts by both the big banks and Fed to drive down the price. This would also explain the delay in German deliver, as the big banks asked for 7 years to get the gold back to the Fed. And of course, the big banks don't want to give back $1200 gold today to replace the $300 gold they borrowed, thus the very low amount that the Fed got back in 2013.
