  • J.P. Morgan Crashing On High Volume: End Of Silver Manipulation [View instapost]
    Katchum, you are way too optimistic, silver broke a major price level of $28 last week and the trend is to the downside, - next level is probably $25. I like your thinking but you are trying to be too clever on this one. I'm a long-term metals trader and when they start to go they go until you hear a thud, which is $1,400 for gold and low $20's for silver.

  • Why did JPM hold an emergency call to discuss a trading loss equivalent to just 1% of shareholder equity, asks Jonathan Weil. "It could get worse," said Jamie Dimon last night - "worse," writes Weil, "could mean disastrous." Reading between Dimon's lines tells Weil the trades weren't hedges, but speculative wagers. "Dimon must know he has a lot more explaining to do."  [View news story]
    its small for JPM, but if it turns into a $20 or $30 billion hit, then yes here we go again....

    anybody know how big the positions are right now? or how big that market cap/liability holds that CDS index was

  • The "disconnect" between the price of gold and the valuations of the companies digging it out of the ground hits John Paulson, whose Advantage Plus fund lost 6.7% during April thanks to big bets on gold miners. Gold-mining stocks have gotten hammered of late - far worse than what the price of bullion would suggest. Why a reversion to the mean may be in the offing.  [View news story]
    hammer: yes gold and silver are cheap right now, - miner are producing record profits so both the physical or the miners are good plays...
