Gold Spikes To 5 Month Highs; Stocks, Bond Yields Sink As US Begins Syria Operation

Tyler Durden's picture

While the initial reaction to Rex Tillerson's statements was relatively understated, the actions of tonight have sparked a much more considerable move in stocks (lower), bonds (lower in yield), and gold (higher)...

Gold spiked to the highest since November 10th - erasing 90 % of the post-Trump election losses...


S&P is fading fast...


And 10Y Yields crashed through support to the lowest since Nov 17th...

Looks like the breaks they slammed on Gold and Silver after the initial pop seems to be giving way.

Another leg up kicking in?

Have to wonder what they're going to do tomorrow, with a whole weekend ahead of us and who knows what transpires during the down-time.

Pfffttt.. and now I appear to be wrong.. I guess that's why I'm not a famous trader selling expensive newsletters or subscriptions..

Oh wait, you don't have to be right to do that.

For idiots it's always "all good" cause they never see the bigger picture. Sad...

Nobody ever thought that a world war would start after an assassination of an archduke.

Nobody ever thought that a world war would start with the overthrow of Assad.

Armageddon is in Syria isn't it?

Just like the ukraine before the cia destabilized them, the people led mundane hard lives but now they stuggle for survival. Why is the USA even involved in their affairs? Who in their right mind would volunteer for the military these days simply to kill lots of people we have no beef with?

A friend made that very point this evening.  What thinking person would join up now? 

It's a trick question. "Military men are dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns for foreign policy." - attrib. Kissinger

On the positive side, I hear McCain is going to personally lead the ground forces. /sarc

Wrapping up the week with a final audacious flourish, the controlled media is telling us that we should feel obliged to "honor" the "valor and sacrifice" of the schmucks who threw away their lives at Vimy Ridge at a ceremony this weekend.  Apparently, not one damned thing is learned and retained from such fiascos.

THE BATTLE OF BLENHEIM by Robert Southey (1774-1843)

"With fire and sword the country round
Was wasted far and wide,
And many a childing mother then,
And new-born baby died;
But things like that, you know, must be
At every famous victory.

"They said it was a shocking sight
After the field was won;
For many thousand bodies here
Lay rotting in the sun;
But things like that, you know, must be
After a famous victory.

"Great praise the Duke of Marlbro' won,
And our good Prince Eugene."
"Why, 'twas a very wicked thing!"
Said little Wilhelmine.
"Nay ... nay ... my little girl," quoth he,
"It was a famous victory."

"And everybody praised the Duke
Who this great fight did win."
"But what good came of it at last?"
Quoth little Peterkin.
"Why, that I cannot tell," said he,
"But 'twas a famous victory."

. . . situated in northern Israel near Kibbutz Megiddo, about 30 km south-east of Haifa.

"Armageddon" is Tel Megiddo.

Evangelical Christians believe it will be the site of the final battle between Jesus Christ and Satan, as outlined in the Book of Revelation. The site is now protected as Megiddo National Park and is a World Heritage Site.

A 'World Heritage Site!'  Somebody has a wicked sense of humor. 

Better would be to pave it over for a parking lot.

I guess I should hold my shares now.

Chickens not quite hatched yet. There's probably a whole lot of manipulation on deck between now and market open.

The market is disappointed we didn't start a nuclear war.... yet.

Once the bombs start falling on US soil it will go limit up, imagine all the broken windows etc that will need to be replaced after a nuclear exchange with Russia; talk about stimulus!

The Jews needed something to send oil above $60 with the OPEC cuts turning into a joke. 

The next few cruise missiles need to hit downtown New York,  Washington DC, and Jerusalem.

Sell gold at $1300. Buy it back at $1200. Lather, rinse, repeat...

Anarchyteez's picture


I only stack when on sale, no sellin, I've been burned doing that. But I sure hope you're right and it goes to $1200 again.

Nope buy gold now and hang onto it. You may never get the chance to own it ever again same with silver.

Anyone like SDRL as oil rips higher?

Very contrarian play.

The stock got hammered into penny stock status the past few years.

C'mon people! You know the drill by now surely? Back to flat by morning. They can sell the paper faster than the miners can dig the physical.

Russia and China will seize the opportunity and jump on the fear trade to make gold soar.

Inflation will soar.

Yellen will have a reason to raise rates and keep the bankers in business a little longer.

"Yellen will have a reason"

You left out the t in treason.
