Gold Pops & Oil Drops As Initial Bond/Stock/EUR Exuberance Fades

Tyler Durden's picture

It was all fun and games until Draghi started speaking... the initial exuberance of what sounded like QE but wasn't really sent EUR to 1.35, stocks higher, and Treasury yields soaring. Then as reality sunk in that it was just not all that much... Gold started to surge, EUR rally back, stocks fade, and Treasurys rally... WTI crude is falling and Bitcoin is rising. We're gonna need a bigger QE, Mario.



WTI Crude is dumping too...

The Fed has huge experience in dropping gold. It will be lower soon.

Does that mean Germany will now get it's gold back?

Nooooooo.  You've not been paying close enough attention.

Gold is a lot easier to move north of the equator, for example, from Ecuador to GS. It's much harder to move, some say impossible to move trans-atlantic.

Not sure if you've ever been down under, but I used to sail with the Kiwis and when you flush the toilet, the water goes down the opposite way ... it's trippy.

Next up.... Gold gets monkey hammered with $450 million  sell order.

Hindenburg...Oh Man's picture

Gold slowly trucks on downward on lower volume. Cue the monkey hammer to really get that insolent metal back where it belongs.

Prediction: Gold and silver will now be managed lower to the unchanged mark and then move sideways in an unnaturally tight range

BP? The gulf oil spill will not be "cleaned" up in your grandchildren's lifetime. Exxon Valdez caused permanent damage, ask the fishermen. Had to comment as BP is putting ads on ZH. Take their money, that is fine but know the enemy. 

Will oil drop as reserves are filled? As demand drops? I hope PMs stay on sale.

as BP is putting ads on ZH

I'd rather see the BP ads than use NSA chrome endorsed by Reggie.

You hope PM's stay 'on sale'? Well you have to hope they go up at some point surely.

Gold will go much, much higher.  Draghi just told the population of the EU, don't put your euros in the bank, convert to PM's.

USD up, commodities down.  US indexes are still hanging in there - may not be for much longer.

Silver has already given up 60% of its maximum gain.  Gold has only given up 40%.  What's taking so long for this manipulation?

Bitcoin may be moving for another reason, there was a recent CNBC piece with the head of eBay insinuating that they'll be using Bitcoin, and that he holds BTC himself.

Nice coincidence, though. ECB has proven they can't manage a currency out of a paper bag. Surprised Germany hasn't told them to get stuffed yet.

Counterbalance's picture

Does this mean we can talk seriously about Bitcoin's 50% melt-up now?

I don't think the west has a culture of owning metals anymore. Saying you own gold is like saying you're a conspiracy theorist. The negative interest rates will more than likely end up creating an even bigger junk bond bubble.

The shame is that most people don't understand how junk bonds work. Junk bonds are a fantastic investment for a while because they work similar to a ponzi scheme. As long as there is loose credit, a company can always borrow more money to pay the interest on the money it borrowed yesterday. The ponzi scheme quickly ends when credit dries up and companies start defaulting on their high interest debts.

"I don't think the west has a culture of owning metals anymore." 

I wouldn't be too sure about that. At least here in Europe a lot of the older folk still hold physical gold, and not only in Germany. You don't go through two long term military occupations without learning a thing or two about food rationing and economic hardship. You'd be surprised how many vegetable gardens you can still find throughout West and East Europe.
