wake me up when it is 17 trillion, then maybe we will have something to talk about.  SSDD

by the way, next recess is scheduled for end of 2015.  i'm out, but expect the market to top out sometime toward the end of this year.  2017 was always the latest arrival, but it appears to be sooner.

Are all you insane?   Why do you see conspiracy here  -- it is more like panic!  This trade is people just trying to save their bacon and get out of paper gold before it is worthless. Why the negative tone -- this is the best thing that could happen .   The TPTB types get out of paper gold and start buying physical.  BTFD you cry babies.

Sanctions on Russia Hit German Economy Hard

Jim Willie is a dope...these sanction hits coming from Europe against Russia will be...indeed are...catastrophic.

They're not going to have a repeat of Hitler over there and Ukraine securing its border is like opening an oyster and finding a pearl.

There are a dozen regimes in the East in peril should Poroshenko succeed...and Putin's is one of them.

"They'll need to sell into weakness" which in my view is driving down not just gold and silver but all commodities in general.

The deflation well underway in Europe is absolutely staggering as well.

The sanctions are indeed catastrophic... for energy starved Europe. Most countries who sanction Russia would be commiting economic suicide. I doubt countries like Germany or France will do any real sanctions at all.

Your delusional, bro, one too many hits to the ol' steel pot years back.  So what you believe is that regimes cannot wait and overthrow their "ELECTED GOVT" and then SHIP all their GOLD to the FED in the US to have it sold off to China?  Sounds plausible.   

The moment Europe's sanctions hurt Putin, will be the moment we find just how much energy the US really has.    Hey DisabledVet are you buying some of this market for your fiscal well being?  Good stuff, buy some stawks!!! (like the ol' war bonds back in your days)

We'll see if oil prices collapse or not.

Certainly the cost of refined product has collapsed again and since only North America uses unleaded gasoline the collapse in consumption combine with the boom in production ...well, let's just say no problem with exports there.

They can "sell" gold short futures contracts, backed by 1% actual metal (if that), as many as they wish, anytime.   The same banks that sell this paper can buy it back again later or use a proxy to do so...maybe three or four banks take turns buying and selling these long and short paper contracts!  You win on the way down or up what you lost initially on the way up or down!

This will continue until a)some big entity enters the Comex playpen and strips it of its little pile of metal or b)the ability of unbacked paper contracts which are never redeemed in metal to influence "the gold price" is removed, or c)all the gold is held elsewhere and trading is done in some other currency.  Roubles? Renminbi?

Gold will not follow technicals unless TPTB want it to....paper gold will be whatever the Criminal Banksters want it to be.....they will play this game up until the time they are dragged from their terminals to their guilloteine.


OR Putin and Xi want to have a bit of fun, and through thei proxies buy up billions in gold, AND take delivery.
