Not sure where this quote came from, but its profound:

"In financial crises, events can move from impossible to inevitable without ever passing through improbable."

Imagine your worst nightmare and take a step further.  Then prepare.

If you had bothered to watch the video, you would know that this is ONE type of investment for him. He also has possession of physical metals. If you only put a low percentage in a high risk type of investment, it enables you to buy more physical eventually. May, or may not be worth it though. In this case, knowing what we all know, it is not.

I hope the day where all the bankers are dragged in the street and shoot comes during my lifetime. I have no time for parasites!

Didn't you watch the video? He uses futures (paper) contracts to secure actual delivery of physical in the near future... exactly what futures were originally devised for.

Precisely. At least if you idiot enough to hoard a Gold, take physical delivery.

And if not GLD ETF is, in fact, pretty safe despite all these talking heads tells you. I am pretty happy with my Maple Leaves in HK safe deposit box.

I am sick and tired of all these idiots complaning about bankers. O'K if you think that all of them are evil, pick up your lazy ass and take physical delivery of coins.

Apparently Celente never lived in New Jersey, and didn't do his diligence.

But really, who would have thought that a supposed reputable firm would do this? If there was an eydropper's worth of integrity on Wall Street the other players would have called him out and would be helping with the investigations. Apparently there isn't, because they aren't.

Now I'm worried about Vanguard.

According to the article snippet above, he had his account with a broker, whose custodian was MF. If you read the terms & conditions on your brokerage account, you hold them harmless if there's a failure upstream (counterparty, custodian, exchange).

this is the first time i've read goldCore's daily drivel in a while

poor celente!

don't be baffled, RTs_MoM!  consider the number of celente troll-bots which have been launched and operating on zH, and rejoice that maybe he won't be able to pay them, and maybe they'll leave!

i have called celente out on these boards before, and i'll do it again, today

either celente is ignorant of zH (in whci case he is truly ignorant)

or he allows/condones these asswipes to defile these sacred boards with countless thousands of name-mentions and "links" to his "boards" (even worse than ori), in which case he is a fuking cunt

therefore i have been warring against his weird psuedo-presence here on zH and calling what i see.  not wishing to be too judgmental, i combine the 'either' and the 'or' and get this:

E + O = celente is an ignorant fuking cunt

today, we see he has swooned to sub-moron stautus w/ his hot-shit "investing" in paper gold on the crimex via a fuking PD such as corzine's baby

also, he has more than a few "fans" here @ zH (baby_B comes to mind, offhand), none of whom have ever (to my limited piratical knowledge,ok?) stood up to his use of zH as his own personal toilet

youse BiCheZ will recall that slewie has!

that said, maybe his black little heart is in the right place on things beside zH and gold, so i hope he has a wunnerful, wunnerful day

It's kind of weird that people of incredibly average or below average intelligence inherently understand the value of physical possession of gold, but for some reason this is lost on the supposedly "educated" class.

I don't post much on the web but this hits me as some thing to address just called my congressman and asked his office why Corzine is not in jail? These types of crimes could destory futures markets if not controlled. The OWS group maybe a bunch of wackos but here is their sliver of truth.

He was preparing to take delivery. If I had that kind of money, I would have done the same thing as you get the gold so cheap. He was robbed and has every right to be angry.

There's a reason why you pay a premium for gold and silver you can hold in your hand immediately before buying. It's real.

true but if you get your timing right you can make a killing in futures, while your physical will only appreciate at 25 percent or so a year (nothing wrong with that)

like the above poster says, if I had his kind of money Id do it, as it is I have 800 oz of silver and 7 oz gold...Im young and poor, though richer than my peers

How much can you save that way? A 100-oz Comex bar is about equal to 3 kilo bars, which you can buy cash-and-carry all day long for 0.6% over spot (e.g.,


) scroll down a bit to see the kilo buy/sell. So you're gonna take that kind of risk, this late in the game, for a fraction of a percent? I subscribed to Celente for a couple of years, during which he banged on about the coming collapse, how GLD and SLV were un-backed, among much else. And now he puts major cash into some of the weakest links in the system? Something here is being left un-said.

  "Something here is being left un-said."

You are indeed correct. The "alternative media" is not all that it seems!

Many of them think they are "protected" for doing their assigned jobs and playing along, but they are disposable small fry to TPTB and will get burned along with the rest of us.

I presume the bulk of his wealth is in physical gold and silver and that he was speculating with funds in his Lind Waldock account, building up his cash balance in order to take delivery of another bar of gold.  He was playing the same game the Spec Longs have been playing for years now -- hoping to get his contract bought out at a premium by JPM then rolling it over into the next contract.  Unfortunately, MF Global is a criminal enterprise and the CME/COMEX/NYMEX is run by a cabal of thieving banksters.  He got taken.  He rolled the dice one time too many it would appear.  His stragegy for building ounces of physical is not at odds with what he's been advising.  Many commodity traders were doing the same thing.

Right... As if MF Global and CME/COMEX/NYMEX are the only corrupt financial institutions. THE WHOLE FINANCIAL SYSTEM is rigged from A to Z. What does it take to get that through peoples' monkey skulls? It happens over and over AND people come back again and again begging to be slaughtered.

True. His newsletters allow for speculation with money you can afford to lose, once you have your defensive plan in place. His going public, while embarassing, may be his way of alerting other speculators who can't afford the loss. So he's walking the walk.

If they admit that something's wrong, they have to face reality, unprotected by their comforting illusions. That's too much for them, especially not if they can flip on the TV, get hope, and avoid the thought.

Absolutely DrE, we don't know what's really going on.  It's all propaganda and stall.  The patient is dead, but everyone is focused on its pulse, as Bernanke continues to do CPR to give the illusion of life. 

You will not see the end coming because you have not even been allowed to see the progression of the decline, and the progression towards the end is accelerating.  It will take everyone, including us, by surprise.

Canaries in the coal mine:

  • Rating agencies punished for downgrading AAA ratings.
  • China shifts to panicked gold purchases in July-Sept.
  • EU and US reaching 75% gold to foreign currencies on the asset side of their balance sheets
  • Open bickering about using central bank gold reserves to back bail outs
  • Countries like Venezuela demanding their gold
  • Bank runs in the EU
  • Open protests regarding economic conditions all over the world
  • soverign bankruptcy and debasement of currencies
  • Intervention in lifeboat currencies like the Swiss and Japanese actions
  • Zero interest rates forever
  • Political leaders, finance ministers, and central bankers retire to spend more time with their families.
  • Markets responding to rumors of rumors spread by political leaders who have run out of options.
  • $1534 shuts down gold vendor sites and nearly decouples physical
  • China hits a brick wall
  • Defaults are not defaults, just a voluntary 50% haircut
  • Looting of individual accounts by a big market player gone bankrupt is hushed up 
  • War drums
