Silver volatile? She's been asleep since May.
Exactly, what a bunch of horseshit.
Anybody not thinking that the CME is working out the details of its margin hikes on silver to be released in a few hours is in for a sore reminder of the cruelty of market regulation, again, and again, again.
Watch silver go up. Watch silver do down.
Meh. Makes no difference when you hold physical.
We all know where this train is heading, anyway.
Either I'm having deja vu, or I've seen this before two days ago when I wrote about it ;)
2.) Failoblog Troll. Failoblog troll’s dream is to have a blog as successful as the one he trolls. Unfortunately – as you can see for yourself if you’re foolish enough to follow the link he provides to his tragically unread blog ....
Wow, you have no idea what you are talking about. Kind of typical for a ZH troll.
I read SGS' site almost every day. Look at his traffic tracker. It's buzzing.
Well, I read that blog. I think lots of people read that blog. Please quantify "tragically unread".
And when does everyone wake up and smell the desperation? If the CME starts to raise margins, it seems it ought to have the effect of shaking out the weak hands and then catapulting or slingshotting the price of silver.
And, as someone else pointed out, the PPT has just been at work. I guess there is a use for $2.5trillion to be factored into the markets. I'm smelling desperation in all the numbers, desperation in the HFT algos and the markets in general. Everyone wants to be risk off, and there is only one class of investments with no counterparty risk.
For all I care they can raise the margin to 100%, at which point all the crap paper "silver" burns up and the real metal goes stratospheric. I made my monthly 50 SE buy last night, paid a healthy premium over spot to get these big beauties, and have no complaints. Each one will, post Ponzi Collapse, buy about 3 days of groceries. AKA: survival. Life itself.
Like a Boehner.
I'm just taken back. Really? Where are the margin increases on gold which has gone up like 15% in just a few weeks?
I guess I shouldn't bitch, keep the price artificially low so I can buy some more.
LOL. That only shaved $.40 off the spot price... and it's climbing back to where it was.
I have to say, it's fucking hilarious that they themselves are the ones that create the volatility. If they just fucking left the goddamn margins alone and adjusted for market size similar to gold silver wouldn't be $40/oz right now. Try $150/oz or something near there I'd imagine.
This shit's hilarious because we all know it's just going to fucking explode causing silver to be outrageously expensive due to those pesky facts and fundamentals.
"You're doing it wrong" comes to mind.
That was my thought as well. I half expected it, but it's a pretty dumb move. It only solidifies the base further.
It also tells me something is going on here. Why silver and not gold? Because it's a TINY market. Because there's NO inventory. Because there's buckets of depreciating $$$ and €€€ in bank computers trying to find some material form other than excrement. Because the chinese opened up shop and are ehm.. shopping.
Ratio is just below 40.
It solidifies the base of those who own paper silver and/or do not have physical possession.
...and that's the majority of PM 'owners'.
When the SLV breaks and the COMEX delivers 100% premiums in FRN's to those who cannot get their silver, the value of their rewards will be nominally higher with a substantial real loss.
Canada and US are ass-buddies... painful to say, but I'd even watch out for my fav PSLV.
Hold the real, or you will squeal, Hook Line and Sphincter says hold the real deal.
IF COMEX defaults (a big IF), it remains to be seen who's left holding the bag.
I haven't seen any hard guarantees that both the trustee (Mellon Bank) or custodian (JPM) are responsible for the inventory. But I'm not a legal expert, so perhaps someone can point that out. (?)
As for solidifying the base, I threw in physical with SLV shares, because both (in title) should mean physical, and are governed by the same price (spot). Hope this clears up what I meant. Of course I bought the real thing. I'm not a trader, just an investor.
Because it's too expensive to silver plate tungten.
Didn't they have to hammer silver like 5+ margin hikes in a row in rapid succession to get it going in the direction they wanted (down). That they had to do it so many times over a short period reaked of desperation. Might play a repeat this time around.
Facts DO NOT conteract manipulation.
100% reserve requirements for silver a coming? Bullish for physical, bearish for paper silver?
All I know is that I am very happy to see this. I have 5,000 Federal Reserve Notes burning a hole in me pocket. Would love to convert that debt into traditional money next week at $35 an ounce.
I like where your head is at on this one.
Would love to convert that debt into traditional money...
and remember... there is no such thing as a premium. Fiat trades at a discount to Silver, NOT the other way around.
Wish I could properly credit the guy who said this but I don't remember his name.
"Any day you can trade fake money for real money is a good day"
Hiking margin requirements is like lowering interest rates. The closer they get to 100% margins the less effect is has (or in the case of interest rates, the closer they get to 0%). Once the margins get above a certain level, they have lost control.
As margins go to 100%, the opportunity costs of holding physical approach zero.
Very, very true. That beeping sound is me backing up the truck. Lift gate is down, boys...load up.
If you start from the premise that this action is about managing volatility then, of course, it makes no sense.
It's not about managing volatility though, is it?
No it isn't. And no effect on the market.
Yes, but they're using JP Morgan SSRI refills as a proxy.
I wonder if this is contagious for Gold...
Translate: Blythe sweatin it.
The PPT just kicked into action as well.
$2.8t is going to buy a lot of equities.
Ensign, MOMO drive warp 9, ENGAGE!
i'm not entirely convinced that this is their goal.
after this "dip" everyone will BTFD in preps of the QE3 pump to the moon whereby the "boys" will be selling into the pump and then retail is the equity bagholder. the real game will be FX, USTs and AU.
Now if only the family intervention with my brother-in-law goes half as well. :)
Good luck with your "surprise party". Typically, folks make a dash for the exits. (I don't think silver scares so easily these days.)
Did the PPT get new funding from the debt deal?
Remember a couple of weeks ago Timmy had to cut off funding to the Exchange Stabilisation Fund to keep under the debt ceiling limit?
Interesting how since then Gold has rocketed higher, and the stock market has headed lower.
With a new, improved debt ceiling now in place, I guess the ESF can be reloaded to provide the PPT with more firepower.
I should think they'll be quick off the mark to reverse the 'Damage' done to them while they were unable to intervene.
PPT = China.
Market recover almost 100 points in few min?
Any news? Or just PPT pushing few buttons?
Half life prediction - 3 hours.
You really think it will last that long?
That message was delivered to IB customers yesterday, about 24 hours ago.
The Ministry of Truth has decreed that a slow and steady upward movement of traditional money is indeed volatility, while dramatic drops in the price of silver is stability.
I believe the volatility they are referring to is regarding the US ponzi scheme more than anything else. Have to try and shake out the weak hands in silver in order to scare them into a "flight to REAL safety".
The world is upside down in the realities of the cartel. Fuck them in the goat ass.
Volatility = price increases in the PM markets. The stock market can go upup and away with no hikes...but PMs, oh no...can't have price gains in barbarous relics.
