  • Gold Stock Indicator: Nearing A Buy Signal For NUGT [View instapost]
    hey UI, Take a look at a number of major mining shares many are below the lower band of their Bollinger bands, RSI is blowing below 30 and volume dumping is quite high. Give NLO some credit do remember his article and we are setting up for a very aggressive bounce off the bottom for the major miners. However I do only believe it is a bounce probably to the 50 day imo. They have seriously broken down below supports so it may take a number of months to rebuild a base before it can move meaningfully higher again.

  • Gold's Critical Metric: Real Interest Rates [View article]
    Bird-man, This is not 1980.

    The govt, the consumer and the entire financial system was not levered to the eyeballs in 1980. In 1980 the total debts to gdp was about 160% today according to Bridgewater Assocs. it is 363%. Interest rates are much lower.
    The Fed is inflating like mad right now hold off the flood waters, however if rates do rocket up we have a serious funding problem since the financial system is addicted to rock bottom interest rates. In fiscal 2011 interest expense on federal debts was $424 billion at avg interest rates of 2.76%.

  • Prepare For A Sudden Jolt Of Inflation And Protect Yourself With Gold [View article]
    yellowhoard this happened in weimar 1920's when the city dwellers headed out into the country to slaughter the farmers herd and ransack their farms.
    Oblama going to put price controls on food and necessities when the inflation rocket hits while the retailers shelves become empty. Stores shelves will get empty real fast.

    The dollar has strengthened most recently due to the issues facing europe and a hard landing in China will send the sheep into the dollar as the musci continues then it stops.

  • Another Crack In The Foundation Of Housing [View article]
    Housing is totally manipulated with govt fraud loans (FHA the new piggy bank--near insolvent shortly with default rates hitting 9% after 24 months--3 times worse than Fannie Fraud) and zero manipulated interest rates propping it up.
    Just wait when global investors say NO MAAS to our endless deficits and money printing. when the tipping point hits you will find out how great a value these bloated mcshacks are really worth when the govt is no longer propping it up.

  • Another Crack In The Foundation Of Housing [View article]
    blueline the housing market is probably the most manipulated and corrupted market in the US. To many self interested groups are at risk and they are trying like hell to get idiots to become debt slaves. No doubt a few areas of the country are priced reasonably vs incomes, but many are still over inflated vs incomes.
    Another thing FHA is going bezerk underwriting 3% down fraud loans and Oblama is pumping the refi'ing of deadbeats across America. The housing market is one big ponzi dominated by corrupt players and to much govt. interference.

    sdavid, it is called stealth inflation as the consumer products cos. are trying to fool the consumer. Most consumers recognize this but it does not register. It's working bought a 12.5 ounce plastic bottle of coke yesterday... replacing the 16 ounce.

    Just take a look at the new nickle and penny, absolutely look fake. The end to the dollar's reign is coming many just do not see it yet.

    Gus,
    all in cost for the major miners now are running between 900-1050 an ounce.
    AU for example has cash costs of $762 and total production costs of $1,065. So a pretty strong support around $1000 an ounce. There is no way this will be like nat gas cuz production just is not growing much and demand is growing in Asia.
    Demand in the US will grow when it is obvious we have a problem, then it is probably a little late.

    No doubt we are headed for the mother of all crisis. When it is a sovereign debt crisis it is usully the final act. There is noone left to bailout the system and it must stand on its own..... unfortunately, it cannot.
    Jimmy would of liked if u touched on some investment thesis on ways to preserve one's wealth in such times.
    thanks and great article.

  • Philip Morris: A True Forever Stock [View article]
    For the second time ever sold a little pm. Still by far my largest position along with mo and kft which are also a little pricey too. I do not like the way this is going up. It's is best to have it go up slowly and then you reinvest divie at value price not high p/e price.

  • Telefonica's Dividend Cut Is Already Priced In By The Market [View article]
    If consolidated cashflows falloff (meaning Brazilian economy---which is showing signs of weakening), investors are getting spooked with this kind of debtload. This is the perfect example why a company like this (nice fcf's) should not carry such high debtloads and ever find itself in a potential financial crisis. cashflows are not guaranteed.

  • A Brief Remark On Gold And Bond Market Sentiment [View article]
    The mining shares look technically sick. They have smashed through most supports and have blown through ma lines like butter. It is going to take many months to repair this type of damage.

    The miners are pricing in much lower gold prices and a potential hard landing in China.

    Good thing did not bite on any yet.

    FHA is printing low down payment fraud mtgs along with the refi'ing of homedebtor zombies.
    FHA guaranteed will need a big new funding after election. Criminals in action.
    This folks is what a broken democracy looks like.

  • A Flash Crash Is Not Only Possible, But Likely [View article]
    the hft's have driven this market up. Lots of speculation in the market.

    the hft's will go into hiding when the markets turn down and liquidity will disappear. a quick drop is for real. Time for caution.
