    Here’s a question that might have you pondering: Is gold a commodity? More importantly, are we doing a disservice to the gold industry by calling gold a commodity? These may sound like silly...

Hitler Is Long The USD, Gets A Margin Call

Tyler Durden's picture


It's been a while since we had a close encounter with Hitler and specifically his trading prowess. Today we learn just how truly powerless the German is when faced with the terrible trio of Geithner's "strong dollar policy", a CFTC barrage of margin calls, and the fine print of various precious metal ETFs. And of course FX sellside "recommendations" by the TBTFs.

Goldman uses their clients when margin calls happen, not their clients' money, their clients.

The only fucking reason it's funny is that it spears the Imaginary Nash Equilibrium supported by a Widespread Normalcy Bias essentially creating a Theater of the Absurd of Reality.

Who needs Hitler when we have I'llbombya?


From the piece:


UPDATE: Whenever this Obama policy is raised, it cannot be emphasized enough that “secondary explosions” — attacking those who rescue victims of an inital explosion — has, according to to official U.S. Government dogma, long been a hallmark of The Terrorists.

I thought it was interesting how she used past tense in that sentence.... Most people would "It is wrong!" not that "it would be wrong". She sounded a bit nervous when she said that part as well, if you go back and listen she hesitates in her voice a bit. Sounds like she is worried about the record keeping part of it as well as Margin Stanley was just fined by the CFTC for 5$ mn for sloppy OTC and IR Swap record-keeping.

I find this a bit scary, since all he is shouting are the names of the international Jewish bankers and Jewish finance "advisors" (As he probably did in real life back in the days).


It is like Germany pre-ww2 but on a global scale. Scary stuff.

IOTW, Hitler was right. And not only about Jew-banksters: see also Red Empire, Czechslovakia, Yugoslavia, etc. Don't worry, though; before sticking that gun in his mouth, he said, "I'll be back...and next time, no more Mr. Nice!"

Sorry dude but it is not the downfall but THE RISE of the Reich!  The world & joos will face another dangerous maniac due to the puppet masters financial destroyers provoking another war against humanity.

As a huge devotee of both of those productions, you're an idiot for including them in the same thought.  Conflating them as you do makes me think you are one of those dumbasses who think both of them are about blood and body count, which true about neither.  Go back to sucking on batteries.

Speaking of precious metals, Gold inventory that is registered for delivery jumped more than 15%

In a way you have a point... "delivery" means they move from one vault to the other in the same building on the same basement floor. True delivery is when we see armoured Brinks trucks lining up outside 33 Liberty Street to haul it away.

The total chart shows gold inventory is down about 3% YTD. Your right tho, it's just another room in the same building.

Wonder if Bernanke has in his office a couch and a .25 automatic ? I don't know if you can douse a corpse in a ditch within NYC limits with diesel and burn it. Maybe in New Jersey at a back office building for The Squid.( Put a little more productivity in the GS plantations staff. ).
