  • White Gold, Black Gold and China's Energy Crisis [View instapost]
    Perhaps China will begin transporting coal from sea ports and Mongolia by train. The is how the US solved the coal transport issue.

    Will BTU win the Mongolian production contract? Anyway, a major contributor to excessive trade deficit level in America is energy import. I think China doesn't want to buy coal by the shipload, they want to own the mine.

    Also, the nuclear program is no doubt necessary.

    titan - ETF doesn't collapse, it is a time decay. Please read and understand the ETF prospectus carefully, the mechanism is explained there, in the risk section. ;)

  • The Fed's Gamble and the Summer Crash of 2011 [View article]
    Well, I suppose you actually mean to say the FED said the wrong thing but they are actually doing the right thing?

    Saying the wrong thing: "We have to keep rates low due to deflation risks."

    Doing the right thing: Keeping rates low as a stimulative measure.

    Some think "The FED has run out of bullets". or "The FED was just paying lip service".

    It's too early to know which way this goes, but the market in it's entirety is always right. I hope you anticipated the trade accordingly as well as the next trade to come.

    FD: Long quality PM miners.

  • Gold and Silver: Speculation, Not Investment [View article]
    Survey says: Meh!

    Not a forward looking article, nor does it point out anything greater than the obvious. Might I suggest investing's first rule involves return of capital, not return on capital?

  • Yuan Manipulation and Its Effect on Drybulk Valuations [View article]
    I'm in agreement with you Eric, there are additional aspects that you didn't mention but I believe you're aware of, which further support your theory.

    Generally speaking though, we just completed the greatest massive trade imbalance cycle since the conclusion of the Chinese opium wars perpetrated by the East India Company and the Delano family (preceding the marriage of Sara Delano, Franklin Roosevelt's mother).

    An economic event based on leveraging an artificial dollar bubble, so much for the obscene abuse of reserve currency status on behalf of a criminalistic collusion between and short sightedness of our government, Asia, and the global financial system.

    It's a very long story, and certainly books intended to record the historical event will be written on the subject. Hopefully these books are as truthful and well thought out as your article, not so confused and incomplete as are many posts I often read. There really are just too many aspects to cover in a short text, but in case others are interested in how the greatest heist ever in history was pulled off, here's yet another smoking gun:

  • A B12 Shot for the Commodity Boom [View article]
    Thorium - Somehow I doubt a tiny $56M small cap has any ability to play a role in the development of a thorium power generation system, any shareholders there are much more likely to be bled to death before anything constructive happens.

    Sad but true, the US isn't living up to it's potential because our government keeps us completely hamstrung. Why you might ask?
    Why shouldn't they when they need not fear any repercussion? What are we going to do in response, fire them?

    No, foreign governments are bribing the US government(by means of buying US government debt) to sell us out, and that's just what they're doing.

    Trade accordingly, take appropriate precautions.

  • Flotek, Haliburton, Baker Hughes: Fracking Companies Should Be Busy for Quite a While [View article]
    Nano-particles aren't necessarily safe, please don't introduce them into my environment unless they're no longer nano-particles once they've served their purpose.

    Nano-particles, by definition, can move right through human and animal skin and into your blood stream, so they're not safe.

  • China Gets Nervous About U.S. Spending [View article]
    Ain't gonna happen, we're about to witness much lower PM prices coming to a theater near us, wish I had a nickle for every time I've heard rates simply cannot fall further. I wouldn't be a bit surprised next month to read about China's massive August purchase of US treasuries.

    Rinse and repeat, China is, and will be, accumulating the natural resources she needs with a time-line of centuries, not years or even decades. Washington is playing right into the trap, it seems, by taking on more debt and attempting to debase the currency but China is so much more powerful they'll get what they want in the end as the US continues it's downward slide into jobless "recovery". Prepare for more of the same.

    Bring the renmimbe to market? That's an old wives-tale as well, why would China do such a thing when the US government is so eager to continue rolling over debt, and the policy of transferring American wealth to China remains incomplete? Some day the treasury bubble will pop, but the event will be impossible to time and will likely produce maximum pain, so the longer the better in that respect.

    In the end, Bernie's going to eventually have to drop bundles of cash from his chopper but not before China has completed their natural resources transactions and gives him the word.

    You and I aren't in the room where these decisions are made, so just step back and look at the big picture.

    Change we can believe in!
