Gold Tumbles More Than $100 As $1700 Stops Triggered

Tyler Durden's picture


In what is increasingly peculiar market action, gold dropped over $100 intraday, following triggering of $1700 sell limits, at which point sell signals hit every bid all the way to $1685 then a knee jerk bounce appeared, in some rather chaotic late day trading in paper gold. Whether this is due solely to algo driven liquidations following the earlier described shift in sentiment, or has some assistance from central banks is irrelevant as anyone and everyone who is happy to convert paper fiat into hard currencies is taking advantage of this latest short-term rout, to prepare for the next battery of printing which will come with 100% certainty. Remember: as we have been saying since the summer of 2011, Bernanke needs a tumble in stocks to get a green light for more easing, and he obviously won't get that with the S&P where it is, nor with WTI still sticking to $107.

$1700 sell limits triggered:


Why 100% certainty? Because one you go exponential, you don't go back.

Today, Bernanke & his associates tried to crush commodities to justify more printing claiming there is no inflation.

However, only Gold & silver went down.  Oil and agriculture did not go down at all. Oil even went up.

The bottom line: Bernanke has failed to drive commodities down! His Zionist masters are too much involved with Iran to assist their agent on daily bases. Oh yes, Iran wants gold for its oil!

Finally, Russia (who pumps 10M barrels/day) is helping US pertodollar system. Otherwise, the US economy would collapse in no times. Why does the Putin's Russia do it? Well, the Russian oligarchy (like Qaddafi did) keeps all their loot in Western banks. But Rutin government is unstable!!! Keep this in mind.

Jewish leaders will be in Washington next week and a near term solution to the Mideast crisis will be penned.  Oil and gasoline prices "tank" (pun intended) along with other commodities for a time.  Just another opportunity, perhaps one of the last, to get into real assets.

I am long Pt short Au in paper, bud.  I said that a month or two ago.

WTF is the matter with you...who cares if you own physical or not, FRNs ARE STILL MONEY.  Make as fuckin many of them as you can and buy whatever floats your boat.  I have said this many times, I do not care what you stockpile to preserve your wealth, you can choose the paper notes of bankrupt States, you can choose barrels of oil, bars of gold, junk silver, pussies, land, whatever man...fuckin negative interest rate loans to insolvent institutions (savings account) if you want to.  It's your business.

WTF do you want, a fuckin echo chamber?  You "freethinkers" are stupid, you come here for "knowledge" and then immediately turn around and try to squelch dissent.  seriously, wtf?

Why WOULDN't someone short gold if they were sure it was going to drop?  It's free money.  You people and your religions, man...make me laugh.

TRAV is right this time. We already know Ben's playbook when he testifies in congress. Buy paper puts of PM's in the morning and next day, buy physical with your loot. It has worked like a charm so far.

Our winnings? We've been watching 50 footers in the Med, (6 years old) coming out of charters for sale now. The high season is coming and still prices coming down. Hubby and I will go after one of these before end of season dry storage. They could go down as low as $90K. (Hopefully will be sailing to Ibiza next summer).

"FRNs are still money".

That is very debatable. Humans invented money and as such demand that it fulfil two important roles for it to be accepted as such:-

a) It has to be a recognisable medium of exchange, universally accepted. 

b) It has to store value over time.

FRNs are easily recognisable but are losing their acceptance as the Reserve Currency.

(Russia, China, Japan, Turkey, Argentina, Iran, dumping Treasuries)

Scratch "b"

They are a depreciating asset that lose value over time. They are not a good store of value, rubbish for saving).

Scratch "a".

FRNs are not money, they are speculative tokens, not useful for the purpose of saving but are useful in the world of risk.

Risk is too high at the moment to warrant playing the game, for me.

Maybe some of you already came across this article, but I find it fricken hilarious that the DEADBEAT TRADERS got clobbered because they believed the LIE put forth by Bernanke.  Jim Sinclair just had a great interview discussing how Bernanke just stated that further QE would not be necessary on the EXACT SAME DAY that the ECB gave European Banks a record $712 Billion.  Where did this short term money come from??? 

Anyhow, those traders that still have functioning BRAINSTEMS in India believe silver will rise 35% more in 2012.  Here is the link to the India article on NEW HIGH IN SILVER:

In India, silver investors still extremely bullish despite price crash elsewhere

Silver prices leapt to a 7-month high in India on the same day that prices plummeted 7% in the international market. Despite the crash, traders expect a 35% rise by end 2012.


Silver is shining again in India contrary to the big fall in the international market. The white metal rose by $40.66 (Rs 2000) in one single day on Wednesday and has jumped to a 7-month high here, though it slid by 7% in the international markets later in the evening on the same day. Traders said investors have turned bullish on silver since the precious metal has posted an 18% gain in the last eight weeks.

When they crush gold like this that they usually serve up a good opportunity to buy...  Wait another day or two (as the price always seems to move down some more after these kinds of drops), and then BUY!  That's what I'm going to do.

As J.P. Morgan said to my great grandaddy during the crash of 07; "Stocks will fluctuate."  That goes for heavily traded commodities as well. 

IMO, this fluctuation has nothing to do with anything other than the Chinese and Russian actions and tight hedge (or sovereign fund stops).

I agree, these smackdowns cannot continue indefinitely every time metals prices try to get some momentum going (or can they?).

I suspect when the time does come we will have little to no time to recognize it. Prices will just fail to get "smaked down" one time, and the result will be a parabolic rise.
In other words, if you try and wait till the "right time" to buy, you'll probably be too late. 

Stay safe out there!

Perceptions Management.
Pure, clean and simple.

Plus, this was the first notice day for silver settlements/delivery on the COMEX.  Usually this kind of action albeit not this large transpires about these dates like clockwork.  This is bigger, but why not?  Lotta funnny shit about gold.
Like Greece, like Libya as you pointed out.
And libya also coincided with Hugo Nutfuckchevyez in Venevulva taking delivery of his central bank's gold.... duh.
Maybe.  Just fucking maybe, somebody was a planning on taking a pissload out of the COMEX warehouses and somebody else (like a or several big shorts) didn't think that a very good idea.

Seriously, what is this fucking fascination with gold and silver?
Not enough around?
Can't they just buy it at the market?
Ya'll note that now Greece is getting it's last and final?

Greece pledges gold reserves (somewhere north of 114 tonnes) as collateral against most recent specter of the bailout.
Greece (sure as the sun will rise, politicians lie and bankers screw their clients) will default.  In whatever form it takes... missed payment or even some wonderful new and innovative technical default as in not preparing the appropriate documentation in the nick of time and not having the wherewith all to cure such.... the bankers will grab the gold. Greece will then have been officially and irrevocably "skull fucked" as in the parlance of the Street; when the corpse has been bled dry, the meat consumed, marrow sucked from the bones, the fat rendered transformed into soap sold to the wealthy and all's left is the skull, and well, you get the idea... the last functional utility remaining.....

What to do, what to do, then cut loose from any safety net the EU had imaginarily promised for it's poorer less fortunate members, the dreams of unity, egality and fraternity smashed, cast upon the rocks whilst blissfully listening to the siren song of the Berlin Bankers (Really a mere apparition of the Anglo-American banking cartel domiciled in the venerable square mile, The City.) Greece is left alone to collect maggots and flies.  

Adopt the US dollar as the currency du jour!
Of course, just as every single failed economy in modern times (Zimbabwe, etc.)  Hell, if it's good enough for the drug cartels and arms dealers, its gotta be good enough for poor olde 
Arachne (You know, where the bankers turned grandma into a blood sucking spider prostituting herself for mere crumbs.)
By Jove!  The Bankers have done it!
Bled the country dry
Taken the gold
And stuffed the economy with an alternative useless fiat (USD)
While having no further responsibility for the poor sods as they'll have been expelled from the EU, etc.   Magic! Then it's on to more fertile grounds!
Like Portugal.
What with 385 tonnes of the shiny barbarous relic.
Wash, rinse, repeat.   And we used to think years ago that we knew something about financial engineering.

Spurious correlation.  Refined gold supplies  increase about 1.3% per year so the overall buying and selling of gold above ground worldwide is basically a zero sum game.  Anytime you hear "oh my God the Central Banks are selling gold" or vice versa there is another entity on the other side of the trade and the real net effect is close to zero.  Just noise and a means for short term manipulation.

No one cares what you're buying or how much.  Two days ago, you told everyone that if silver punched through $36, it was clear sailing to $42.  Ironically, this was Turds advice, too.

In that post I said NOT TO BUY AT THIS LEVEL.  Its was what, at $35?  Then I said if it breaks $36 it will do it with authority.  It went to $37 in the same day!!!!!

I said NOT TO BUY IT.  Why would I say not to buy it if it was going straight to $42?  I wouldn't.  It did exactly what I said it would yesterday (it broke $36 with authority, and retraced).  Once again, I said NOT TO BUY.  If it was going straight to $42, that would be a huge gain.  Why would I say not to buy if it was going straight to $42?

Because it wasn't, and didn't go straight there.  It had to retrace.  But, and here is where you should quote me....

Now that we have seen it break a very important level of $36, we know that THE NEXT UP MOVE WILL BE TO $42.  COuld silver retrace to $33?  Yes.  Will I buy higher than $30?  No.

You don't get how to trade.  I understand that.  But don't fucking give half of a quote up here.  Put up the whole thing.  Write that I wrote not to buy yesterday.

Here is the full quote you fucking troll:

Mr Lennon Hendrix

Vote up!

Vote down!


$36 is the holding number on the charts.  If $36 breaks authoritatively, we should see $42 soon.

If you own a lot of silver and your price point is much lower (like mine) I would not recomend buying here (I won't).  But if you do not own much silver then you might as well get in the boat.

I loaded up in late December (as I am sure people may remember because I wrote I was buying silver "with both fists").  If you already own a lot of PMs, platinum and gold are better buys here pricewise, especially platinum.

Anyone with half a brain knows we would have seen $42 in probably days if the market were free, so don't let these quarter-brained trolls bother you.  They always come out and post when the Evil Empire smacks down PM's.  They start out by saying "Told you so, but no one here listened".  LOL.  Did they listen when silver was at $12.50?  Apparently not.  They seem rather bitter.

They only post when the Evil Empire has inflicted pain.  They derive joy from watching white collar crime and theft.  I'm sure they'd join in a gang rape of a 15 year old too, if they came across it on the street.  That's what's so remarkable about these evil people, they contribute zero and only show up to taunt because in their own personal lives they're completely incompetent.

It ain't worth the head ache of answering a complete fool.

Had any newbies listened to you and sold when silver bottomed at $33.75, they would have lost 2.8% today, as it closed at $34.60.

The GLD will eventually collapse to ZERO, because the fund has exactly ZERO Gold in their vault

physical GOLD will eventually skyrocket UP in into the tens of thousands of dollars per ounce, because... Hint: dollars really are  just pieces of PAPER and they can print as many of them as they want, and they have every intention in the world of SPEEDING UP THEIR PRINTING PRESSES

they can print shares of GLD but the printing presses that print GOLD BARS don't quite have the wrinkles worked out of them yet

To the Newbs:

You never buy all at once.  You do what we call level buying.  And you dollar cost average so the next time you get paid you can level buy all over again. 

Level buying 101:  You find an asset you like, maybe it is silver.  Do you own any?  No?  Then you buy some.  Let's say you have $1000.  So what you do is, you buy $200 worth the first day, then you sit back and see if you can get a better price.  What's that?  The price went to $34 the next day?  Great!  And you buy $200 more.  Then the price goes to $32.  You buy $200 more.  $30.  $200 more.  $28.  $200 more.  Now your average price is $32, not $36.

Do I have to write this on every post here?

Paul Tudor Jones, back before his buying alone was sufficient in size to move markets, used to buy his entire position all at once, the logic being that if he was correct in his analysis (a good long or a good short), the market price was going to move away from him, so it was best to just get it done.

It was during this phase of his career that he built the record that boosted his net worth to $3.5 billion.  That style seemed to work out for him rather well.

There is no one size fits all.

He wasn't trading highly manipulated markets, methinks.

Buying all at once is good in non-volatile, non-manipulated markets, where the fundamentals will eventually be reflected in the price.  But when G-men get to funnel money to their pals in exchange for insider information and cushy positions after their government stint is over, well...

Manipulated markets?  Are you kidding?  He was trading cotton.  Whatever you think goes on in the silver market is "clean as a virgin's honey...." compared to cotton.

He was also heavily trading FX back when there were lots of daily 200+ pip moves in $/DM, $/Cable, $/Swissie, etc.  He was uncanny.

I know "manipulation" is a buzzword around these parts, but markets sometimes move sharply---up as well as down---due to natural market forces, otherwise known as the madness of crowds.

Though I probably can't teach anyone anything, there is one thought I carried through my career as a prop desk head and fund manager, and I also use it in my everyday life.  Maybe someone can benefit from it:  All my failures are my own damn fault, and all my successes are just dumb luck.

A 8-10% move to the down-side is far from an ass raping.

Another buy on the dip cuts that in half.

Peoiple that aren't in the boat yet should be getting in the boat....and scaling in would be a good idea since markets have gotten chaotic and volatility is clearly the order of the landscape.

You demonize Silver Pumpers....yet you seem totally comfortable blowing out of proportion these moves that hover from the single to double digits.

You have no understanding of Zerohedge. It has many factions within the PM sector.

Do try to seperate the paper traders from physical buyers

I've got bad news for you infinite expansionists, there ain't no more continents left to manifest destiny, or hemispheres to Monroe Doctrine.

 And you hijacked this thread with your hardly relevant disdain for my use of the slang 'natty'... or did I just miss the part where you actually responded to the content of my comment, rather than just ragging like a thirteen year old pay-attention-to-schmeester about 'I like this word, but I like totally hate it when people use that word''?

U in denial, decline;  A Koward.

But seeing as YOU brought it up: Norway does have a pretty decent national balance sheet, especially compared to some. They're fiscally and socially responsible, which I can plainly see drives duped ideological zealots nutz to no end. Though it's patently disingenuous for you to say I've ever labelled them a 'utopia', as I have never said/written that.

10-4 on that.  Peruvian Spanish is better.

 It is ironic that millions of mostly or purely non-Spanish natives in Peru and Bolivia speak the clearest and purest Spanish to be heard today.  It was a joy for me to speak Spanish with Bolivians --- and an utter nightmare to try to communicate in what THEY call Spanish in Chile.  Imagine slurred Spanish spoken with the machine gun, rapid-fire pattern often used in southern Californian English, and loaded with all the inane and silly slang of Australian "English", and that will give you some idea of what Chilean Spanish is like.
