Oh really? Looking at gold it seems he is scoring this time :-)

Gold to 1700 first then 1450 and maybe even lower.

"Initial Claims, +428, Exp. 411K, up from 417K (414K was revised upward of course); 22 out of 21 400K+ prints; Employment looking bad again"

Let's just drop the 'again'. It has never gotten better. The 'perception' of getting better was created by fudging numbers and creating temporary, gov't paid, stop gap jobs.

And now, fudging and/or hiding UE numbers by reducing worker participation is keeping the published UE number from going where it actually is; above 11%.

BTFD or STFU.

 

"They" will whack gold HARD.  "They" HAVE to, they have nothing to lose but their ponzi banker scheme.

So rosin up your hands and get a firm grip on your sack, because this shit will be V O L A T I L E.

All I know is hamburger has gone from $2.79 a pound for 7% fat meat last year to $6.59 a pound for the same thing this year (236% increse), if that is price stability I will gladly switch to eating the Feds bogus reports.  I need not even comment on employment.

Easy.

The FED does not have political cover for direct monetization.  A massive decline in the stock market will do this.  Margin calls will be forced, even on gold.

Expect a hard decline, just not quite as bad the last time it happened.  "They" may even use this to naked short gold further as "They" have nothing to lose if they fail.

Might even happen a third time before "The Great Reset".

Maybe we should assign the Fed 10 mandates. Rudy von Bernankenstein would then be 80%.

The Fed has only ever had a single mandate, protect and increase the real wealth of the top 10% of households by income, and concentrate that defense in the top 1%.  Because we all know that is the tide that lifts all our ships, even if the rest of us see water coming over the gunwales and have to bail like mad just to slow the sinking.

A terrific leading indicator, to predict the level of uneployment and new claims each week, is only to count the number of posting here.

Note: The under 30's are in the streets, the under 60's post and the rest are watching TV and/or listening to Bloomberg, reading the WSJ etc..

I thought Bernanke recently reassured that the deflation we've been fightnig all this time in fact had been inflation, but that we shouldn't worry about it, as it was now on the decline?

Jeez, does that guy ever tell the truth about anything? How can such a lying sack of shit keep his job? I suppose he's compared to the likes of Geithner, but still...

He reminds me of a man that has been caught by his wife in an affiar.  Deny, deny, deny until the divorcepapers are signed.  I am just wondering when the rest of the Americant public will finally file their divorce papers to the stock and banking markets,  Mine have been signed, sealed, and delivered since 2008.  Economic divorcee fun has it benefits you know.

Tyler,

Expected update, but hey look the Chinese are complaining about U.S. tresuries being a "bad" investment.  My guess is that we will have a few good auctions shortly.

Looks like another green close today right? Bad news is good news? Unstable and collapsing banking systems are positive?

 

I think I'm starting to get the markets...no not really.

Detroit's decline started way before his time. Didn't they start openly discussing "spreading the wealth" schemes, and attempting to implement them in the 60'es and 70'es?

There's no well-functioning society, which socialism can't destroy.
