The 8:30 AM Gold Dump, Carry Pump Is Right On Time

Tyler Durden's picture

This morning's pre-open is dominated by deja vu all over again. Just as we saw yesterday, right on cue at 830ET, gold (and silver) are unceremoniously dumped and USDJPY is pumped so as to ensure stocks look shiny for the US open (and Biotech can be dumped to the next greater fool). Oil is not moving, 30Y bonds are weaker, and the USD is flat... all makes perfect sense if you don't think about it.



SSDD.. again...


Perhaps it was all about running Copper up to $300?


It didn't end so well yesterday...

It will make a great 10 year study for them.

Just keep in mind Newton's Third Law...

For every action, there is an equal and opposite re-action.

The payoff against these criminal manipulations is inevitable and coming to a theater near you.  Stack while it's cheap.

BLOTTO's picture

Its been falling apart for 100's of years on all major fronts and the sheeple still havent figured it out - even still now with all the fucking latest technological ways they can view and research the crumbling...nope, nothing...not interested.


The sheep are aloof...they can not fathom that those that are here to love and protect us - are causing the affliction.


I dont know who fuckin makes me more angry - the sheep or the elite? The elite by a snout...

Sheeple are defined by "bbbaaaaaa....", <sound of chewing cud>.      By definition, they aren't going to get it.

There is a Libertarian tenant that essentially says... "Since you can't count on lucking into having Good people in charge at the top, it is best to design governance systems so even when Evil people are in power, they are limited in the harm they can do".    The follow-on is that the most protective system of this fashion turns out to be minimally sparse government, where those at the top have little power regarless of their nature.   Good, Evil, doesn't matter; they have strictly defined roles and little authority to do otherwise.  I'm pretty sure this was the bulk of the thinking behind our Constitutional Republic.

My fear is that minimally sparse governments will never last over the long term if the population is predominatly sheeple.   Vigilance upon the part of the citizens, slapping those at the top back into place each and every time they overstep, is the only true way to keep government from bloating over the ages.    Given the current density of sheeple, I'm guessing we're hosed for the foreseeable future.

If you ever have government, you have to be eternally vigilant. The US constitution proved this, because its goal was to contain the power of government and it failed massively. Since prosperity breeds complacency, government necessitates the occasional violent revolution. In the past, when a nation's decadence led to it becoming weak, the empire next door would walk in and take it over, but this no longer happens very often anymore. Therefore, we are going to have to figure out how to get rid of it completely if we want to get rid of these occasional violent revolutions.

Oz by oz, year by year, keep stacking.  Anyone doing this will be giving their children a wonderful gift.

Whether it´s two oz, 15 oz or 100, you will be way ahead of that game and can turn to other, even more important, matters

a study? I'm sure there's a manual written somewhere, so there doesn't need to be a study.

sheep are neatly corraled and grazing on fresh shoots growing from the msm shit that is cast upon the pastures...

The sheep are already dead and or living on borrowed time. Nothing happens until the moneychangers themselves are all dead.

spastic_colon's picture

not today though.....europe is roaring, we will follow, cant be outdone the outcome of todays markets is already set.  if you didn't buy yesterday the easy money is gone, trading during the day session is for outsiders and those whom want to try and pick up nickels in front of steamrollers.


Today will be a 200+ day for dow 20+ for ES and new ATH before month end.

That's why their sheep.. they don't know enough to freak out.

lordylord's picture

Even sheep know when a bear is close by and get jittery.  These people are zombies.

HardAssets's picture

The sheep have been conditioned.

Just ask a typical person from an 'upper middle class/professional neighbborhood' to turn their t.v. off for a week & tell them that their kids 'schooling' makes for a horrible education and see what reaction you get. The 'education' system and media have been used as weapons against their minds. The rest of the fight is relatively easy after that.

I take a crap when I awake at 8:30 AM daily....why shouldn't gold?

Comte d&#039;herblay's picture

I've been reading here and elsewhere about how "soon, really soon" this merde is going to end, about 10 years now and running on.

That the sheeple freak out when they realize.....yada, yada, yada.

It ain't happening. The difference between the manipulating fuckers, and the sheeple is: organization.

You can't organize a clam bake with a dozen people involved let alone 330,000,000 low and no information human beans who really don't much care for each other and never got past puberty in their thinking, emotions, and actions.

You say you want a revolution...well, y' ain't gonna happen.

Rather than look at the sheep side of the equation, you can glance at the control freak side of things. These meglomaniacs want to control every aspect of the lives of every human being on the planet. The really big push for the modern form of that agenda is only about a century old (technocratic controlled society). It can be argued that their agenda has only become more widely known (and discussed among people on forums, etc) for only a relatively brief timespan. To advance this agenda they must rely on the sheep to act as their eyes and arms. They are vastly outnumbered by the sheep. Control freaks have tried to micro manage everyone before, but the scale of this is off the charts. They have a 19th century mechanistic view of human nature & see people as nothing more than machines to be manipulated.

You may not have faith in the sheep, but the meglomaniacs with a God complex are also human beings (despite their own propaganda to themselves). They are subject to black swans and the unexpected despite their models and simulations. Yes, there are a lot of sheep. There are also probably more people aware of the control freaks game than at any other time in human history.

Comte d&#039;herblay's picture

Knowledge does not translate into action.  The only way for 330,000,000 people to do anything about the Oligarchs, plutocrats, dictators masquerading as duly elected pols, is for them to organize.

And that is simply not going to happen in a nation as diversified in culture, language, social issues, economic standing, without a Lobby.

The only reason the oligarchs can do what they do is thru the 40,000 lobbyists that run this country, obviating the vote at every opportunity.  

I don't see any lobby forming because they can't get paid, by the vast unwashed.  

If the Amusements and distractions were to somehow be disabled for long enough, maybe people would take their lives more seriously, but all I see around me is the proliferation of yet more ways to distraction, ignoring the real problems that beset the people now, and the children who haven't a clue as to what they will face when they come of age to understand the prisons they have been put into.

Bullshit. The sheeple are still walking around in the slumber they have no clue what's going on. As long as the rest of the world plays along they can keep this up for longer than we can imagine.

new game's picture

sheer some wool and send them back out...

Headbanger's picture

As long as the rest of the world plays along!!??

Do you SEE the rest of the world "playing along" now with all this crap with Russia and other political tensions!!?

You're a fucking idiot!!  

Dr. Engali's picture

Russia is not the rest of the world and all the major central bankers are playing along. The fact that you have to resort to insults just shows the emptiness of your argument.

Headbanger's picture

Russia isn't the rest of the world!!

You's an even bigger fucking idiot now!

Because you're an Obozo zombie!

And my insults only go to show you what a fucking retard I think you are, you mook!

Dr. Engali's picture

Meh. You haven't made any real insightful commentary since you've been here, but keep up that sharp wit of yours. That will really get you places. You have a bright future I just know it.

Odin's picture

It will end when China/Russia, and the rest of the BRIC countries announce a new reserve currency backed by gold and the petrodollar is tossed to the wayside by countries who would rather receive a sound currency for their natural resources rather than a piece of fiat bankster funny money... Let's see the algo's try to contain the price then...

...Of course I'd be surprised if the Anglo American Empire doesn't go completely ape shit at that point and start WWIII...

DoChenRollingBearing's picture

Although I enjoy reading Jim Willie a lot, I do not think that Brazil, Russia, India and China have the smarts nor the ability to take over the financial system.  Too many moving parts.

America falls from within because of internal rot.

Did you forget your meds this morning, Head?

You are beginning to mimic your avatar...

fonzannoon's picture

yes because up until now there has never been political tensions...

your combination of blind anger and ignorance is very impressive. When you write this stuff and slam your fists on the keyboard does your helmet fall off or did someone attach a velcro strap for you?


OceanX's picture

Who/where are these Sheeple?  Everyone I encounter and converse with agrees, something is wrong.  Admittedly, there are a myriad of perspectives, most are too busy trying to scratch out a living and don't know what to do anyway but, they are aware...

Dr. Engali's picture

Yes a small percentage of sheeple know something is wrong, and an even smaller percentage get it. But the populous as a whole are just going on with life completely oblivious. It won't be some big mass awakening by the sheeple that brings the system down (hell they are too busy arguing about the red and blue team), it will be the break down of the system that will scare the shit out of the sheep, and by then it will be too late. They won't know what hit them when the chaos ensues and the police state closes around them. Until then they will continue to graze peacefully on their Cheetos with their faces buried in their iGadgets.

thamnosma's picture

I hate agreeing with that.

agent default's picture

When it falls apart the sheeple will be turned against gold holders as the source of their troubles.  It will take CNN and MSN a couple of days to accomplish that.   Hedge accordingly. 

Headbanger's picture

I agree.   CNN and the rest of the MSM will be blaring how bad it is to the sheeple cause the media knows nothing else gets viewers like fear does cause they need to be told what to think and do in a panic!

And you la la land fucktards are in for a big shock when the sheeple turn into a pack of crazed angry wolves!

Freddie's picture

I have not watched TV for years as it is full on 24x7 brainwashing lies.  Anyone notice how the airplane mystery is solved and time to move on?

Putin bitch slaps the uSSA and EU-SSR in the Ukraine with phony coup so that story needed to be distracted and hidden.  So go grab a plane and create a 2 week mystery.   My guess is a 777 can be taken over remotely.  Malaysia not playing ball about something?  Grab one of theirs, fly it up to 45,000 to kill everyone then fly it to a deep remote part of the Pacific and crash it.  Or it was a message sent to China.

Yeah, back up to where they were first week of Feb 2008. Its a nice "do over"..... I suppose.

I don't know 1 person around me who is even the least bit aware or concerned about what's going on, he publi has been put into a Pied Piper trance....the don't care about anything about entetainment.

Its sort of funny, those zombie pics like the Walking Dead, etc have made it easy for some friends of mine to think about SHTF scenarios. I try to take them backwards from zombie apocalypse to systems collapse and then I go substitute currency collapse for viral infection and go forward again.

I guess everyone is different though.

Blano's picture

End? Yes, eventually.

Really soon?  I doubt it.  It can go on too long, and too few people give a crap.

Exponere Mendaces's picture

Remember, when the market doesn't do what you want, its "monkey hammered" or "levitated". When it does go in the direction you DO want, it means that small dip is the first step towards the plunge to zero, no questions asked.

Maybe a bot should write the summaries, or is it doing so already?

Turns out they had heavy Ins. policies on those guys. Whoda thunk?

I remember reading a wsj article about 15 years ago where companies were insuring a lot of their employees, even to the level of cleaning staff, etc. Seems a bit much to me, but ...

Jump you fuckers.

I am aghast at the lack of simple supply and demand theroem here. The world is awash in gold and silver while unbacked paper and debt are at critically low levels. Just the other day, my neighbor set out a sterling silver tea set on the curb with a note that said, "free." He has given up any hope of exchanging it for paper.
