Spot Gold Soars To All Time High Of $1678.5

Tyler Durden's picture


Nothing like a perfectly calm, stable and non-imploding global Keynesian Ponzi to set investors minds at ease... And gold to all time record highs.

major, major currency moves...overnight, the zenz wuz off 3+% against the dollarz.  This isn't just a US thing...every currency regime is trying to outprint the compound interest function that implodes currency base when the economics world gets turned upside down by failure to grow debt.

actually the american people of 1913 had nothing to do with the federal reserve act. it stemmed from the rich man's panic of 1907, and the act was something the banksters had been trying to get rammed through for years in secret, and they did on christmas eve 1913. cheers.

I would like to thank ZH and all the posters for getting me involved in first silver and then gold, starting in the Spring of last year. I remember it well, my first purchase of ASE's, at $19 each, plus a little change. Then I bought SLV in equal amounts, and later sold the SLV and paid for all my physical silver. Now I'm doing the same thing with gold. Screw the Department of Truth!

God, those were the days, weren't they. It makes me feel nostalgic. It seems like so long ago, last Spring. Looking back, I can see that next Spring will be a different world yet again. Fasten your seat belts. There may be turbulence.

I would like to thank ZH as well.  I received a rare and coveted lifetime ban from the kitco gold forums in 2009 or there abouts.  I was bummed after being a member there for a couple of years and learning a great deal about buying and holding gold and silver.  I refused to read their boards any longer, which I have not to this day.  I swore off posting for what seems like forever.   ZH has been very liberating.

I tell friends and others that ZH is the most important site on the internet stupid highway.  I believe this is true.


Now I should donate.  Or can I send a silver round instead?


Thanks ZH.

he thinks that printing destroys the power of the FRN.

What he doesn't want to accept (due to the ethnicity of one of his main acolytes) is an analysis of Weimar, where the confettiers came out the other side of the hyperinflation owning all of Germany.  In fact, reversing this outcome was one of the main thrusts behind the german nationalist movement spearheaded by a guy named Adolf and his enactment of prohibition of ownership of various assets by members of a particular clan (same clan as the confettiers).

It's because Obama has ordered the building of a golden calf that's about 40 meters high.

Location will be that island where that greenish statue is located in New York.

And as that consumes rather a lot of gold... the goldprice goes up.


Our President on Wallstreet.

Shallowed be Your Name.

Your Empire crumbles.

Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us today our daily popcorn.

Forgive us our debts,

as we also have mocked our debtors.

And lead us not into temptation*,

but deliver us more evil.

It was too late to buy gold at $500 an ounce. it was too late to buy gold at $1,000 an ounce. It was too late to buy gold at $1,500 an ounce.

   You gotta stop thinking in nominal terms and start thinking about WHY gold is going up. Once you've done that, think about whether those factors will continue.

   Decide for yourself.

Currency destruction and a return to the true value of gold after decades of suppression are driving this, as well as everyone swarming into one of the few safe investments available.  Inasmuch as there is still supply to purchase, and currency destruction continues, how can you believe you missed it.  When paper is worth nothing, how much paper will people give for your gold?  This isn't over yet, not by a long shot. 

Stocks are never to expensive to buy or inexpensive to sell. - Jesse Livermore

Focus on what is driving this and you will see you haven't missed anything yet, the real move has not even begun yet.

Is silver being played to ignite ? Only the small paper movers are trying for the "fast buck squeeze". Most of them get eaten when the lions come for food. The big wealth is only trying to convert! Silver is good, but always to small. Perhaps at $150us it would work? Most are looking for a "currency/wealth" holding with history! They, ( this includes some CBs ) want a holding that is spread far and wide, and very deep! Gold is good.
