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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I am surprised that I am surprised, but I am.

We may disagree on some details (conspiracy or not, etc.), but there is a big step people gotta take here in comprehending what is happening. THE CB's operate with no oversight (accept having to put on Kabbuki puppet shows for congress/legislative bodies here and there), and no accountability. You may believe they are incompetent or thieves, or both, it does not matter. THEY are doing stuff so dishonest to prop this shitshow up, WE HAVEN'T THOUGHT OF IT YET.

Unbelievable that the Eurocrats have yet to step in and do anything at all. Obviously this is a planned situation, do they let all the assets come to the US and then allow the big crash? That's the easiest way to steal from the global pension funds and various other large funds, this is the plan ultimately.

Their going to get all the money and all the assets, they'll crash the currencies and markets while they kepp or take the assets (they = banks/oligarchy). I have no doubt this is coming, the question as always is timing - mid summer it should be obvious to even sheep, by the end of the year full fledged fall out including things like capital controls and martial law. Currency devaluation is coming too, this will happen on a global scale - China, Europe, Japan and the US will all massively devalue their currencies.

They won't be happy until austerity is deployed everywhere, regardless of the pain and suffering. Their prepping for major war(s) which will happen almost simultaneous to the meltdown is occuring in Asia, the Middle East and Africa. This is happening here as well, the ability to deploy drones, the NDAA, the Patriot Act, the various Executive Orders are all to insure that any civil unrest can be put down quickly. We're in trouble, the financial aspects are only one piece of the pie.

Its disgusting that a man like Mitt Romney can be considered for President, clearly a prime example of the 1% (.05% really). Its just as disgusting to have Obama or Bush or Clinton or any of them, party independent as they are all criminals! We're all on their list somewhere, I expect to be fucked with at some point when I fly because of the sites I go to (here, alex jones, max kaiser, etc). If we don't do something soon it really will be too late, we need to get to the hundredth monkey and soon!

Get out the popcorn, keep stacking precious metals and ammunition - lead will be as valuable as Gold and Silver soon -:) Good luck fellow Earthlings.

This euro collapse and subsequent return to national currencies, where applicable, on the continent is something we will tell our grandchildren about - that we were there when it happened.

What the fuck were Europeans thinking with the euro experiment? One would have thought that after last century that they had learned their lesson about a forced integration of the people of Europe...

Run guys, it's going to get really ugly on the continent.

But full marks for Germany. At least they haven't lost their mind and are cutting off the black hole called euroland once and for all...

Folks should also be aware that the German people have to date already invested into the EU more than was demanded of them at Versailles, and yes, corrected for inflation.

For fucks sake, enough is enough.
