Euro Gold Outperforming Bunds and Euro Assets / Celente’s MF Global Gold Account ‘Looted’

Gold is trading at USD 1,775.20, EUR 1,318.30, GBP 1,125.30, CHF 1,630.20 , JPY 136,576 and CNY 11,263 per ounce. 

Gold’s London AM fix this morning was USD 1,773.00, GBP 1,124.43, and EUR 1,311.49 per ounce.

Yesterday's AM fix was USD 1,765.00, GBP 1,113.99, and EUR 1,302.39 per ounce.

Euro/Gold Outperforms Stoxx 600, German Bunds and Euro Assets  (Reuters Chart)

Gold is marginally lower today but is consolidating in all currencies after French, Belgian and Austrian bond yields gained sharply yesterday as contagion takes hold in the Eurozone. French financial markets experienced turmoil on Tuesday, reflecting fears that France is being sucked into the spiraling debt crisis.

UK unemployment soared to 2.62 million in Q3 and joblessness among young people climbed above 1 million for the first time since at least 1992. Sterling fell against all majors and gold due to the appalling jobs numbers and more indications that the BoE will embark on QE3 – further devaluing sterling.

Gold in British pounds has risen to £1,125/oz and is now only 5% below the record nominal high reached on the 5th of September of £1,179/oz.

COMEX gold options floor trader Jonathan Jossen told Reuters that there were lots of bullish plays on gold yesterday. Out-of-the money bull call spreads and outright out-of-money calls were seen with $1,800, 1,900, 2,000 and 2,100 being popular strike prices.

US regulator, Bart Chilton, the Democratic commissioner at the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission said he thinks “something nefarious” occurred at MF Global, deepening the criticism facing the fallen futures brokerage.

As customers worried about whether they will recoup the full value of their accounts, some filed court papers on Tuesday looking to form a committee to protect their interests.

Chilton told Reuters Insider that US regulators are closer to finding out what happened to roughly $600 million in missing customer money.

“The money is not where it should be. I think something nefarious has happened, potentially something illegal,” he said.

Reuters also reports how CFTC Commissioner Bart Chilton, who recently acknowledged silver market manipulation, said the regulator's budget should not be cut.

One of the more high profile victims of MF Global’s fraud is economist and trends forecaster Gerard Celente.

Celente became the latest victim of the MF Global bankruptcy when funds, in the six figures, in his gold futures account were taken (or ‘looted’ as Celente called it) by Chapter 11 trustees. Celente was hit with a margin call within days of the corporate shutdown despite his account being fully funded.

(YouTube) – Gerald Celente on His Gold Account Being ‘Looted’ by MF Global


Celente told Russia Today (RT), “I really got burned, I got a call last Monday, I have an account with Lind-Waldock, and I have been trading gold since 1978, and I have a very simple strategy. As you well know, I’ve been very bullish on gold for many years…  So I was building up my account to take delivery on a contract, and I got a call on Monday, and they said I needed to have a margin call.  And I said, what are you talking about, I’ve got a ton of money in my account.  They responded, oh no you don’t, that money’s with a trustee now.”

He said that MF Global “have cleaned out and ruined a lot of people. So maybe the name MF, I’m thinking the first word of MF is ‘mother’ and we could put the other word in there if you use your imagination . . .  because that is what they are doing to everybody.” 

Celente is astute and is on record regarding the importance of owning physical gold bullion. The incident shows the increasingly fundamental importance of owning physical bullion (see table above) – either by taking delivery or by owning in personal allocated accounts.

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!

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.

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

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)

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.

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.

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.

And sells off on the slightest whiff of trouble.

Celente, like most F12-punching gold bugs, was trying to "make a killing" by playing in the leveraged futures market using extreme margin.

Gold stocks by themselves are crazy enough, why would anybody be stupid enough to load up on PM futures?

Robo do you trade stocks?  As I hear all the time your constant banter about all the worthless momo stocks that are also held in non allocated stock accounts you are really trading in.  And as a trader i am sure you do not take possesion of your stock certificates.  This man is blameless here as he is expecting the rule of Law to be upheld.

If Gerald Celente had said the words "physical delivery" one more time, I would have believed him, but he was 10 phony "I was gonna take physical delivery"s short.

Hmmm. Mr Celente, you mean you kept PAPER gold with one of the Federal Reserve's (the institution you bad mouth every 10 seconds) favored (and good ol' boy network) primary dealers, thinking your money would be safe Mr. Celente???  

Hmmm, one would almost think their money (clear throat twice) eh I mean GOLD (clear throat twice again) would be better kept at a community bank or credit union than chasing Gold near its peak before a deepening recession.

Eh but don't worry Mr. Celente (put hand to mouth to stop uncontrollable laughter) Max Keiser says he has some forward contracts on 5 bottles of Scotch liquor to be delivered to your home late Friday. Eh? What Max?? The Scotch was in a MF Global account!?!?!?!?! MotherF*ckers!!! Eh??? What Max?? You talked to Alex Jones and Jones' friends the Purple martians who are from 9th moon of Mars who spy on CIA for Jones will intercede for Celente on the Scotch and create a fake Apocalypse to wipe out all fake Apocalypses????

Ok, don't worry Mr. Celente, everything is good once I clear this operation with Glen Beck's Apocalyptic Mormon Martians from 6th moon of Saturn that watch FBI for Beck.

Celente knows his money is gone.  If the "Trustee" has it, it will be years before he gets any of it, if ever, and he knows it will be worthless by then. 

Where the "authority" no longer functions as a protection for the rights of the common man, we are reverted to the state where no external authority exists, and authority devolves to the individual: Locke's State of Nature.  .

And that all men may be restrained from invading others rights, and from doing hurt to one another, and the law of nature be observed, which willeth the peace and preservation of all mankind, the execution of the law of nature is, in that state, put into every man's hands, whereby every one has a right to punish the transgressors of that law to such a degree, as may hinder its violation: for the law of nature would, as all other laws that concern men in this world 'be in vain, if there were no body that in the state of nature had a power to execute that law, and thereby preserve the innocent and restrain offenders. And if any one in the state of nature may punish another for any evil he has done, every one may do so: for in that state of perfect equality, where naturally there is no superiority or jurisdiction of one over another, what any may do in prosecution of that law, every one must needs have a right to do.

In transgressing the law of nature, the offender declares himself to live by another rule than that of reason and common equity, which is that measure God has set to the actions of men, for their mutual security; and so he becomes dangerous to mankind, the tye, which is to secure them from injury and violence, being slighted and broken by him. Which being a trespass against the whole species, and the peace and safety of it, provided for by the law of nature, every man upon this score, by the right he hath to preserve mankind in general, may restrain, or where it is necessary, destroy things noxious to them, and so may bring such evil on any one, who hath transgressed that law, as may make him repent the doing of it, and thereby deter him, and by his example others, from doing the like mischief. And in the case, and upon this ground, EVERY MAN HATH A RIGHT TO PUNISH THE OFFENDER, AND BE EXECUTIONER OF THE LAW OF NATURE.

Now the MF Global affair is exposing the same thing. However, based upon reliable sources, staff inside the SEC had proposed a rule that brokers could no longer post client’s assets in REPO. Corzine, I believe, hopped on a plane and flew down to DC and met with Mary Shapiro, the head of the SEC to prevent that rule from being implemented. According to sources, Shapiro agreed and stopped the change in rules and that allowed MF Global to continue to use client funds for their own trading.
Mary Shapiro has denied that the collapse of MF Global was any failure to do with regulators. The head of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, Gary Gensler, recused himself because of concerns of conflict of interest since he and Corzine held prominent positions at Goldman Sachs at the same time during the late 1990s. Does anyone really think he will let his underlings prosecute Corzine? This incestuous relationship between regulators and the big New York firms is destroying the integrity of the financial system and making the United States a laughing stock. How can anyone with a potential conflict of interest be put in charge of a regulator? Based upon good sources, Corzine met with Shapiro PRIOR to the collapse to prevent a rule that would have in fact prevented the demise of MF Global. Who is regulating the Regulators? Does the entire financial system have to turn to dust?-----------

One recommendation of advice:

If you see a financial company suddenly begin frequent advertisments pitching products and services, run away as fast as you can.

About 8 to 12 months ago, MF global began a huge advertisement campaign. Same with, Enron, Lehman, RBS, UBS, AIG, etc.

In case some didn't know:


Geithner, Bernanke call for broad new powers to regulate finance

WASHINGTON (AP) - Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke sought broad new powers Tuesday to regulate tottering nonbank financial companies like insurance giant AIG, and President Barack Obama said he hopes "it doesn't take too long to convince Congress" to grant them.

"AIG highlights broad failures of our financial system," Geithner told the House Financial Services Committee. "We must ensure that our country never faces this situation again."

Along with the new authority to regulate and, if necessary, take over giant financial companies whose collapse might endanger the broader economy, the administration wants increased oversight and controls of previously unregulated markets such as hedge and private equity funds.


Published on Thursday, April 16, 2009 by Mother Jones

Is Geithner's Hedge-Fund Bailout Illegal?

The broader powers would give regulators tools to close down financial firms in an orderly manner and avoid a cascading collapse of financial market firms, the two officials told the committee.

Geithner said the decision to seize any financial company deemed "too big to fail" would have to have the agreement of the White House, the Fed and other top regulators.
