You shouldn't be shorting them at all.  It's amazing to me that people are still bearish on bonds.  Haven't you studied history at all?  Japan is the ultimate blueprint for what's happening here. 

And for people who shit on the research of big brokerage firms (which I also shit on), every one of them was calling for highest interest rates and telling their clients to reduce their bond positions.  So the bond bears on ZH were on the same side of the trade as the Merrills, Goldmans, UBS, etc.  It's mind-boggling to me.

Some differences between Japan and the US.

 

1. Japan was still exporting goods and had a trade surplus.

2. Japanese people own the majority of the debt. In the US I believe the US Fed is the largest single holder of Treasuries with, US citizens owning about 65-70% of bonds issued and foreign governments owning about 30-35% of US bonds.

The problem with the above is that if and when those overseas people decide to spend their money and it comes home it will cause inflation.

 

I would not be short or long on any paper asset from a trading perspective my view as a small player is the market can remain irrational longer than you can remain solvent.

 

Even Warren Buffet talks how he nearly got pulled into the tech bubble of the late 90's Now thats irrational exeuberence :)

Then suddenly there were a couple of other people who chose similar avatars.

It was because of these copy cats that I changed my avatar.

Agree, Smiddy. He is a total shill for the concept that prevailed since the 1980s: outsource all productive industry where possible along with jobs, financialize to the max and become a 'service' provider. Unfortunately that was selling the farm, a mistake that the US might never recover from now that resources, technology and knowhow are gone and momentum is picking up elsewhere. GE wasn't the only company but Jack was the loudest cheerleader adn the most pompus ass around.

Because we all know that those jobs create lasting value and will turn this economy around.  Pay no attention to record poverty, a housing market in freefall and no jobs.

Scrap copper prices today in the UK:

Yesterday evening - about £4 kilo

This morning, two quotes, $3.50 and £3.70

I got delayed, couldn't get to the yard this morning.

Price 5 minutes ago: £1.50

I kid you not. Physical copper in the Uk has fallen 55% in 24 hours.

Of course there will be a rebound, but let me tell you I think this IS the big crash. Denninger may be right after all (Tyler always is)

Good luck everyone.

Same here. I bought a bunch of silver when it was around 48$, and bought an oz of gold around 1850 not long ago. But I've been buying with every penny I could find for about 3.5 years, since my "awakening".  So there's 14$ silver and 900$ gold mixed in with the "expensive" gold and silver. But you know what, looking at them I can't tell the difference, but am damn pleased I own them and they are in my possession.  Sure, i'd be pacing and chewing my nails off if it was all gold stocks and ETF that I traded, but as long as my physical stash didn't evaporate last night, i don't give it a thought to weeks like this.  Corny as it sounds, this is a philisophical battle between good and evil. So come payday, next Friday, no matter the price, I will walk down to my coin dealer and take 10 oz of silver out of circulation, or a small bag of dimes and quarters, or whatever he's got that I can afford that day, and rinse and repeat two weeks later.  To me, this is a fucking ultra-marathon, not a 40-yard dash.

Remember, the Fed wants everybody to come begging for QE3 on bended knee. The Fed will reply 'Ok, we'll print, but remember I told you that the consequences would be severe to include high inflation, much higher oil prices, and possible civil unrest'.

On the QE3 prerequisites checklist is: much lower oil prices, lower commodity prices and the above (begging). Unfortunately, this list can not be achieved without a pretty severe market crash. So, we'll see, eh?

Of course the world will always look to the US for the strength to manipulate markets in the face of overwhelming bad news. Remember the cord to reality has been completely severed and all that matters is keeping US equity markets up. Without bubble valuations and insane market caps our country can't run.

Simple, the markets are scrogged. Or, more succinctly, they are a manipulated joke. That said; who has the most invested in the markets right now? What group of entities have the most to lose (read, free money from the Fed)? Why, the TBTF's, of course. So, who is selling PM paper right now and what are they using the proceeds to do? If not for this, I imagine the market would be much worse off.

And what the fuck is going on with Gold and Silver?

Is this just a massive hit because people are scrambling to raise liquidity...and even though silver has dropped about 15-20% in a couple days...it is still up pretty big y o y?

I mean seriously?  People are selling their positsions in some of the only real, tangible assets out there?  To buy what?  Treasuries?  How fucking counter-intuitive is that?

I will tell you one thing I know for a certainty though...you WILL not be able to buy physical silver for $33.00 an ounce - anywhere -  Not even bags of 90%  Silver U.S. coin....At some point, the physical market, and the paper marker (SPOT price) are going to have to de-coupple from each other...While the paper market helps create  some pretty impressive jumps in "price' earlier this year...it's main role is to obfuscate and interfere with the true price of silver (and to a lesser extent, gold) 

I always find it amusing when peole are fucking panicking ...and boy are they ever....you can taste the fucking panic in the air right now as people are slowly starting to realize that the FED is impotent and powerless to stop the shit that is rolling down the hill...right towards them.  Short of dropping $100.00 bills out of a helecopter...what the "da chairman" gonna do?  What can he do?   The little fucker shot his wad already...and now he is limp-dicked and unable to satisfy the market monster he and Greenspan has created....Thank you Dr. Bernank-en-stein.

PMs are a staircase, not a bottle rocket.  Secular bull market due to the U.S.A. becoming a banana republic, with nukes.  Bernanke can still do plenty for his bosses on Wall Street, lend 'em another $16 trillion... see GAO Report?  http://sanders.senate.gov/newsroom/news/?id=9e2a4ea8-6e73-4be2-a753-62060dcbb3c3  PAGE 131

'Amazing', all bank stocks are up. Gee, how surprising! I can only guess who is buying their stock, hmmm. I can venture a guess at whose money they are using.

Like I said yesterday, I think this entire episode was to prevent gold from breaching $2k on the upside.  The whole thing feels orchestrated.  I'm sure the Fed, through its intermediaries, are QEing without officially announcing it.

This will be one of many warning signs, today. The recent avtions of the Fed only postpone the inevitable. Down the road, we'll see who just doesn't get paid. There won't be anyone to say something at the Fed's funeral, when it gets buried in a paper casket. Dying from debt poisoning is as ignominious as dying from alcoholism.

Have to admit its an interesting set-up today...Friday, no news, at the lows of the move.  We could gap down as easily as gap up Monday.

Looks like I picked a good week to refinance the mortgage but a bad week to stop sniffing glue.

One rumor and the whole bunch runs into stocks. No Armageddon. We're still alive.

Anyone remember the story where GS evoked $2500 gold?

"JP Morgan, a foremost and global financial services market leader has predicted a surge in the price of gold to attain $2,500 or higher per ounce by year end according to a statement credited to Colin Fenton and Jonah Waxman who are commodity analysts of the financial services giant.

Also, Goldman Sachs expects gold prices to continue to climb into 2012 considering the low level of the real interest rates of the United States and sovereign  debt problems in the US and Europe.
