  • Is Silver Good As Gold? [View article]
    Jason, you make a good case. However, another thing to consider is: if and when a significant silver shortage becomes apparent, silver prices will rise much faster than any inflation-driven value can reach. It will be much more expensive than any wealth preservation factor can account for.

  • Precious metals see a bout of major buying, with gold (GLD +1.5%) jumping about $25/ounce in the past few minutes, and silver (SLV +4.8%) soaring nearly a $1. Bearish for some time, Mark Dow reminds gold has been going down for 2 years, but the decline has only recently made the headlines. Gold's post-QE run was built on a number of misconceptions which have all cracked. The longs (silver too) are trapped and the bear market isn't close to over.

    Black swan drones are flying high in the sun. They will land when we least expect it.

  • Gold's (GLD -0.9%) tumbled to new bear market lows in the last few minutes, now just a few dollars above $1,200 per ounce. When all else fails, check with the technicians - one isn't seeing support until the $1,150 area. [View news story]
    The Black Swan is in the White House. It will soar soon.

  • Gold (GLD) could fall to $1,200 soon, says BAML metals strategist Michael Widmer, acknowledging strong physical demand but saying it's investor demand required to move prices higher. His team, however, is far more bullish for later this year, and sees the price retaking $1,700 by year's end. "There are a few scenarios we are looking at (for H2)." [View news story]
    No one knows. A twenty trillion dollar national debt is looming in the headlights. We will never be able to pay this back. The midterm impact is undefined but it will not be good. How many black swans does this entail?

  • What Really Happened To Silver: A Different Perspective [View article]
    Avi I enjoyed your article. It gives a very accurate and articulate description of what inflation is. I don't know if the price of silver is more effected by Elliot Waves, Gravity Waves, or Human DNA waves. Describing human activity by any kind of simplistic mathematical construct is probably misguided. I think that Moon's theory of the Naked Short Wave is probably closer to reality. Your analysis does not give the reasons for the very strong demand for physical gold and silver. Government and Stock market investors hate silver and gold. When gold and silver go up too much it makes the dollar look weak. The Fed and the Government hates that and allows naked gold and silver shorts to take the pressure off of the dollar. I think that at some point a very Black Swan Wave will occur and cause a giant market Tsunami Wave driving gold and silver prices higher very quickly. When mankind can prove what caused the Big Bang or describe what preceded it we may have the mathematics required to predict human behavior more accurately. I don't think we are at that point yet.

  • "The Real Bubble is Gold: and It's Deflating," writes MKM's Mike Darda, who says the key turning point was the metal's (GLD. IAU) failure to rally in wake of last fall's QE∞ inception. "Investors simply took it at face value that gold was soaring and would continue to rise because of (the Fed)." Inflation picking up will be even worse for gold, he says, as this would make the Fed an aggressive tightener of policy. [View news story]
    You got it right.

    You make some good points. However, you will have to buy or trade for the beans with something. Gold and silver will buy beans. If you get it now it is cheaper than later when stagflation reduces the value of your cash. You may not realize that the US is on the road to energy independence through oil and gas fracking. This should help us with trade for almost anything we need to import. Canada and US together will be the new great energy cartel for the world. It will take a few years but it will happen soon.

    Naked shorts of Bank(s) keep Au and Ag manipulation going with Fed and Governments' backing. Will this ever end? (I don't know.) Leverage of the shorts is very high. Germany is being forced to wait 7 years for physical delivery of their gold from US. Some day this corruption will blow sky high. When/how long is the big question.
