Market Turmoiling As 104 USDJPY Support Cracks

Tyler Durden's picture




 

News that India may be folding on its capital controls had sent gold and silver surging this morning but following this morning's collapse in emergency claims benefits in the US (expected, but still shocking), precious metals are extending gains, Treasury yields are tumbling, and the USD is well offered. US and German stocks are also cracking lower (with chatter of a flash-crash in Germany's DAX). The more likely driver of all this weakness is that Nomura (or some large Japanese BoJ proxy) lost the 104 USDJPY anchor...

 

 

and trying to pin this on some fun-durr-mental news is pointless... this is why it's breaking...

 

Don't believe it?

I really can't wait for the crash. The suspense is killing me. All the useless and overly entitled uneducated darkies are going to start rioting and looting and it'll just be fun to watch

Yup, and by the time everyone's unemployed and has rolled off the benefits, unemployment will be zero percent. Hurrah!

They'll come up with a new government statistics and call it Employed Unemployment.

It takes a lot of work to be unemployed so why not count it as being employed.

I mean you gotta collect your SSI, your EBT, your Section 8, and all the other benefits.

It takes a lot of work to get on these programs and walk to the bank to cash your benefits checks.

And, think of the long hours these people work at being unemployed. Would put an 80 hour per week piker in the private sector to shame.

The unemployed work at it 24/7/365.

Low unemployment is bad. It means the free money is over. The tail wagging the dog.

What utter bullshit.  Ballistics don't give a rat's ass about the shell casing, it is the bullet that is important and each pistol already leaves a unique set of markings on the bullet.  What a waste and blatant law to prohibit pistol sales.  This will work as well as any other form of "prohibition".

It's a bit large for carry.  But an awesome gun.  Very fun to shoot.  Pistol range may not allow, may have to shoot at the rifle range.  2000+fps out of the barrel depending on the cartridge.  Good times...

Will Gold cut through $!270 this week - after that level we will have the real Fireworks with Shortsqueeze:

 


Jim Rickards: "The Fed Is Insolvent And Wants Gold To Rise Orderly" 


Jim Rickards discusses QE and FED 4 Trillion balance Sheet and its implications for the economy, US dollar and Gold. FED is insolvent if they mark to market their assets now. If economy is not so strong as they want us to believe FED will be tapering into the weakness with coming recession in 2014 as the result of it. It is possible that in this case FED will have to play down the Taper or ever increase QE again.   Today's action in the market is very interesting: Gold was Smashed-down from the all-important levels $1250 - $1270 after which Shorts will be burned, but Gold Stocks are not biting into this new attack and are holding well to the upside so far. It is the very important sign of the strength of the Gold market break out to the upside. http://sufiy.blogspot.co.uk/2014/01/jim-rickards-fed-is-insolvent-and-wa...
