I was starting to fill crazy waiting for this correction. I was worried gold was in a bubble and this just proves that fundamentals still matter for hte material.  it was so high off it's 200d average.

It's Option Expiration day for Gold and Silver on the COMEX tomorrow.  Check the volume of the selloff.  

Which market participants have pockets deep enough to cause that decline?  My vote goes to the Gangster Banksters (aka Bullion Banksters, aka Large Commercial Shorts).  JPMorgue and its crew market manipulators, that's who.

The outfit was 'finding' Hugo's gold which they supposedly had 'on deposit' for him.  Now that buying spree is over.

It may be sarcasm for you, but the reality is that the majority really do inhabit that paradigm.

The Paradigm Shift is on, however.

Gold is the focal point of the shift, for good reason.

With all that Libyan gold in the hands of the rebels (NATO) they will find it easier to pay off Hugo in the real thing.

No bubble in gold, buy gold whenever find it;    "The most important thing about money is to maintain its stability. . . .   You have to choose between trusting the natural stability of gold and   the honesty and intelligence of members of the government. With due   respect for these gentlemen, I advise you, as long as the capitalist   system lasts, to vote for gold."  


—George Bernard Shaw, 1928

Now, now, Libya's gold is being held for 'safekeeping' - and maybe some leverage to make sure the 'right' oil companies get long term contracts......

Has to be the first 'revolution' ever where the one of the first things the rebels did was set up a new central bank....... this from guys who wer scrambling to make whatever weapons they coudl find usable (see the video of the workshop where they wer modifying 20mm aircraft cannons to be used on the back of pick-ups?)

Can you confirm  you are short Gold now ? I will have a hook on you, when Gold turns higher. I just bought with some play money.

Why are you still here? Back in June you were calling for gold to go to $800 and silver to $15.

Changing your avatar doesn't mean you get any new credibility on PM's.

People have been calling it a bubble since it was $400.  There were people back then projecting $1650, and for the most part they were viewed as so loony it wasn't even worth the time to mock them.  Look at the long term chart.  If it was any other market, it would be touted nightly on CNBC.  You can call it rationalization, but the fact is, gold bulls have been on the right side of the trade for 10 years now.

any actual response to the fact that you made an unbelievably shitty call yesterday, and have thus far pretended you never did?

it's ok to be a bug, but don't embarass yourself if you don't actually know what the fuck you are talking about.

How can someone who has bought gold for several years be embarassed by a ONE DAY correction?

Those that should be embarassed are those that have continued to be wrong for ELEVEN STRAIGHT YEARS!

So in closing STFU!

Didnt we stop arguing with gold and silver bugs a while ago? I just agree and say 'all metals to a million obama dollaz'. Much simpler.

Heh, I seem to recall you being short gold since it was around 1200 US bitz and bytes ZP; no wonder you 'stopped arguing with gold bugs a while ago'. Only 5 c-notes or so to go before you can turn up the knob on your shadenfreude, 'til then you've still got the 'suck' dial twisted right off past 'max'.

Definitely not, but feel free to peruse my posts for such proof. Only time i mentioned being in anything at all was short silver from ~41s and 44s after it went to 50 and down.

The long-term thesis for gold bugs is correct, IMO, (for silver i am not convinced, but again, i wont go to an AA meeting explaining my love for Bombay & T now will i..) but i am basically astonished at how (some) rational minds here understanding bubbles cannot see a short term one when its evident in their face.

considering you call me racist and I am anything but??? I dont know, maybe it is not this other person or me?

maybe you are a zionist plant? trying to get the truth removed from the sight of everyone..

if I am a racist.. then are these other 300,000 - 400,000 people who HATE Israel's Government as well Racist? is it Jew on Jew hate? 

or it ok for them to hate the lobby whore Government there that controls our Government here?

The largest protest in Israel's history. Around 400.000 people took the streets all over the State of Israel - in Tel Aviv they were more than 300.000. The mass rally, organized on 6th August 2011, was to push the government to make reforms with a deep sense of social justice, stopping the rising prices and reducing the life cost in Israel.


Look at ALL of those Nazi Racists! me and my crew say fuck you!

The point is, ladies and gentleman, that gold, for lack of a better word, is good. Gold is right, gold works. Gold clarifies, cuts through, and captures the essence of the evolutionary spirit. Gold, in all of its forms; gold for life, for money, for love, knowledge has marked the upward surge of mankind. And gold, you mark my words, will not only save Teldar Paper, but that other malfunctioning corporation called the USA. Thank you very much.

I'll make a prediction. Bullion stores are going to get cleaned out over the comming week.

With the amount of paper shorts they can throw at the market (at least over the short run) they can paint the charts hpwever they want..... technical analysis over anything but the VERY long term in a manipulated market doesn't mean much.   You can bet this was a 'kitchen sink' effort to bring the price down as far as possible - yet its's still not even dow to what the price was two weeks ago.

I'll bet you're seeing some major buying - look at the drop in GLD stores.... I'll bet that was big boys exchanging for physical (only the select few participants have that right).   SO this smack down burns a bunch of longs, lets the big banks cove shorts and make a fortune onthe way down AND grab some more physical out of GLD at cheaper prices.
