Anyone know the historical ratio/spread b/t gold and platinum?   Reason, Gold spot is at 1683 and Plat spot at 1719.  Or is that Plat a different measurement? Or maybe Plat futures are not trading now 18:34 Central time?

All things being equal it would appear Plat is (under)valued relative to Gold.  Or am I missing something?

Think of it like stcks: Gold is the "Blue Chip", silver & platinum the newly fashionable growth stocks. When tims get scary, people run towards the safer one. 

Don't fall into the trap of assuming a unifom price rise. This isn't that kind of environment. With a depression gutting industrial demand, those dependin on such for a significant amount of sales (e.g., Ag & P) will lag.

Gold is mirroring silver's recent run up.  At what price does Bernanke reloan his tonnes at, because that should send the price down.  Does he do it righht before he announces QE 3?  I bet so.

Regardless of what precipitated the S&P downgrade, isn't it the first time any real action has been taken against the money printing? 

I think the stock market has priced in QE3, having experienced QE2.  How else can you explain NFLX, PCLN, CMG, LULU, PCLN, etc.?  The only problem is that it is now clear that Bernanke's Printing Club may have to pay a penalty for future runs on ye olde Heidelberg.

"Tel Aviv Stock Exchange plunges on U.S. credit downgrade

August 7, 2011

JERUSALEM (JTA) -- The Tel Aviv Stock Market experienced its largest one-day loss in nearly three years in reaction to the downgrade of the U.S. credit rating.

The exchange's TA-25 benchmark index of 25 stocks fell 7 percent on Sunday to 1,074.27 -- the biggest drop since November 2008 at the beginning of the global economic crisis -- despite a delayed opening by nearly an hour to allow traders to react to the news on the U.S. downgrade without pressure.

Standard & Poor's on Aug. 5 downgraded the U.S. credit rating from AAA, the top designation it had held since 1941, to AA+. The downgrade is likely to result in steeper interest costs on U.S. government bonds, eventually leading to less disposable income.

Analysts reportedly believe that Saturday night's massive protests throughout Israel against the high cost of living also contributed to the plunge, Haaretz reported.

Since the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange operates Sunday through Thursday, it was one of the first stock exchanges worldwide to react to the U.S. credit rating downgrade. "

Trading the markets on a 1 minute chart (or even a 30 second chart) is just about the only way to do it, when volatility is all over the place. I've tried five second and ten second before now, but they just go everywhere too fast for my liking.

Oh yeah... and don't stick to the standard settings for anything like MACD, RSI, Stochastics. Larger Fibonacci numbers are your friend, IMO.

Hey ... only downgraded to AA+. All those who jumped ship on Thursday were probably expecting worse? Don't worry though, it's all priced in. The only question mark is how the market is going to react to the news that Timmy is staying on as Treasury Secretary.

omer; a good dealer quotes the spot price, you agree they lock it in and I pay about 5% over spot. Does not matter if gold is down 100 or up 100. Any dealer that plays that game should be avoided. Hope that helps.

A reputable dealer will not increase the premiums. You lock in the spot price same premium. Many do try to take advantage though. Ahh, America.

Been on a self imposed protracted exile from the markets. Jumped back in Thursday mid morning on some generic positions and made an 11% gain. Still holding 'em, expecting exceptional goofiness Monday morning.

Been looking at DRV for a long long time, wondering if it is a bus just leaving the station and if its worth the long ride. Lots of pros and cons to it. Mixed emotions, conflicted logic and some drastic conclusions if it goes either way. Anyone else scrutinized this bad boy?

Tax cheat, Timothy Geithner: "It's the S&P that doesn't understand math."

 

Spring 2009, Geithner's economic plan is laughed off the stage at the University of Beijing by Chinese economic students.

Summer 2009, Joseph Stiglitz says privately US unemployment will be 10% for years to come.

Summer 2009, Larry Summers privately echos Stiglitz on US long term high unemployment and poor economy.

Spring 2011, all of Obama's economic advisors are gone except for Geithner.

April 2011, Geithner says there is no danger of US downgrade. None.

It all will change by Morning. Ironically Aussie Dollar is
going down against USD. Hey and by the Way Dollar going
back up against Swissy as well. Wait till Shit settles down
I have a feeling that GOLD will drop from this high later on,
as profit going to be taken to meet margin calls.

Did it occur to your crystal ball that the Aussies might be intervening in their currency?

Same for the Swissy... In fact, they have been intervening for months... where have you been?

'I have a feeling gold will drop'... lol 

I have a feeling that you need a new crystal ball... troll

...and here is a fact, not a feeling... DJ futures down 280...

We'll talk tomorrow, troll, ok? Those movements now are irrelevant. So far Dollar has been rising. DJ movement will depend on how massively ECB will intervene and buy Italian bonds. DOW could finish up green tomorrow. Nothing goes in one direction all the time.
