Is this the final run of stops before the intervention?  I have no idea.

Bank run! But where do you run to when your currency is going down? Gold


Euro plunging. Who cares? At least FB is in the green today. ;)

You must mean some other gold than the one on my screen that is down $7.

Quinvarius's picture

Europe is down like 1.5%.  So gold wins!

While its still available(think 2008) who give a shit what

the paper gold price is doing.

We're in extra time,this game is just about over.

Last one holding paper loses.

You clearly dont understand. Gold will go up no matter if its deflation or inflation. That number on your screen isnt gold. Its paper. If you tried to buy a physical bar at that price you couldnt. It would cost you like $10,000 an ounce. And if somehow you did find real gold to buy at this price its all bankster manipulated bs. JPM, vampire squid, Rockerfeller, Rothchild, Illuminati

Buga buga buga...

You can buy how ever much Gold or silver physical as much as your money can stand.

Aint no one telling you otherwise... if they are, tell them to shove the 100 ounce bar and ream it.

If those effermite lackey yesmen can even lift one.

Roadkill is the only one on this thread who doesn't require today's 'junking troll' to put his comments in the red...

Chappy's picture

I don't know where you shop but I buy gold for $65 over spot or 100$ over spot if less than an ounce (which is always is).  He may not have a bars worth in invemtory but he has plenty for my needs.

Ever tried to park $100 Billion in Physical Gold "Overnight" ? ... more like you need 6 months for delivery , unless of course the price is realistic , like 10x$1530.
i.e. first stop is USD.

brooklynlou's picture

Er ... USD.

Trillions of them ... everywhere ... freshly printed no less.

All the German exporters are cheering at this development right now...  The sinking EUR makes up for Bayern Muenchen losing to Chelsea.

 "back to July 2010 levels"


July 2010 levels?

You mean... One month before Jackson Hole (QE2)?... Is that the 2010 you're referring to? I remember those days... You could still buy Ag for under $20... Fond memories...

Speaking of that, the commodities index (CCI) is nearly at July 2010 levels! (Except PMs are higher)

If/when the CCI goes below 500, expect the printing presses to be warmed up.

GeneMarchbanks's picture

Ah, what will said at parity? Other than several headlines about Germany outperforming and looking for a way out of the €.

EscapeKey's picture

At parity, other central banks will definitely start printing.

GeneMarchbanks's picture

LOL, I love your originality, also your hair is nice, Irish?

Er... google "Anna Chapman".

Parity, one world currency,  order up...


kridkrid's picture

what happens to the debt...Debt Jubilee?  Or just converted into whatever the single currency is?

Matt's picture

With Carbon Cap & Trade to provide equalization payments from wealthier to poorer regions? Sounds like a brilliant (diabolical) plan (that is sure to fail).

DOT's picture

Being a Wisconsin resident I urge everyone to drink milkshakes.  Eating peas will remain optional.

Debasement will be followed by replacement.

A Lunatic's picture

Parity, humongous transfer of US wealth to EU, sharp decline in US standard of living, WWIII, and THEN one world currency and government.

LawsofPhysics's picture

Maybe he ism but then 6000+ years of human history would be wrong.  What are the chances?  hedge accordingly.

The game of chicken between the central banks is not going to end well. I wonder who will be the first beheaded poultry.

Dammit. I told you not to hit the "FLUSH" button until after I left the building.

Now how am I going to get these stains out?

geewhiz190's picture

as an aside, the rally in T-bonds may be in it's terminal stage with a move to 2.5% given the negative articles on gold starting to become more common, a low may be within sight as the dollar's rally has become pretty extended on the short term

CrashisOptimistic's picture

You mean this is the end of the 30 year rally in bonds?  You've found the endpoint of 30 years?

geewhiz190's picture

i call this the ABC market- Anything But Cash.  The depearation clients exhibit in terms of their willingness to buy 40 year maturites of pure garbage to get any kind of yeild tells me the end may be getting close.  different market-same desperation. the top may take weeks or months to form but, it feels like the emotional levels are there to make one.

Er... at what point does the Bernank decide he must print again like crazy to rebalance the race to the bottom? This is all building up like a huge zit about to pop.



CrashisOptimistic's picture

Bernanke is not stupid.  He knows he's not getting the effect he wanted with QE.  And he knows he can't maneuver this close to an election and hope the Fed can retain independence from Congressional action.

He'll do nothing.  There's no point in doing anything, other than maybe tease.

ghostzapper's picture

Agreed.  Ten year Note at 1.64% the Eurozone crumbling helps Shalom for the next 6-18 months it perhaps puts a lid on long term rates everyone is so scared shitless they pile into UST and USD.  At some point post election the printfest orgy will resume.  Lower oil helps but the higher dollar hurts Shalom's projections for S&P earnings and ultimately SPY and RUT.  he knows this so maybe at 1,000ish on the Spy he has to jump in.  Maybe. 

Vince Clortho's picture

You, me and a bunch of people know printing won't save the economy.  Yet if things go too far south, there is going to be a shreiking clamor from the usual whiners to do something

Bernank may not be as concerned about the elections as many believe.  I am wondering aloud if there is one more hefty print job left in the old goat before he is put out to pasture.
