  • Back Up The Truck For Silver [View article]
    "With swings varying 5-12% in gold silver have wrecked their image of safe heaven and I would worry a little bit putting my money there".

    This is exactly what the powers that be wanted. I wonder if they have won?

  • Gold Vs. Housing: A Contrarian View Of Value [View article]
    I'll gladly buy real estate at an all time low. Problem is, it ain't there yet! Authors use of gold as money is a constructive concept which many "goldbugs" have already figured out.
    I'll buy author's house next year when it's $250,000 fiat dollars and maybe golds priced at $2500 oz. So I get the house for 100 gold ozs. who knows.....

  • Taibbi Is 'Barking Up the Wrong Tree' on Goldman Sachs and the Bubble [View article]
    I think You and Matt have very similar views. The problem is worse than just Goldman, but goldman makes a great lightning rod. I'll use the steroid problem in baseball as an example. Roger Clemens and Barry Bonds Have brought the problem to the public's attention. Matt has brought the commingling of wallstreet and the government to the public's eye.

  • Cheney Was Right: Deficits Don't Matter [View article]
    "We NEED the deficit, so long as we have a system in which 40% of the GDP goes to the financial sector"
    This is the crux of the problem. Way to big of percentage of gdp in paper pushing. The contribute nothing along the real added value chain.

  • Piling Back Into Silver for the Long Haul [View article]
    gman the dollar is trash but so are the other currencies in the basket it is compared to. So we get these strange days where gold goes down because the dollar is "stronger". Pretty stupid, but as a few commentators have expressed, it is also complex.
    Pretty simple conclusion, buy the dip.
    Hard part is knowing what the dip price is. Ananthan seems to think it's here. I'm gonna wait a bit and see how these games play out. To much volume for me right now

  • A Tale of Two Lies: Oil and Silver [View article]
    I agree Golden ox, Karl's worst article. How do you compare 1 rate hike vs 5 in 8 days.
    Also I'm guessing Karl has not been to a coin store. Much different action in the real world.

  • 3 Myths That Will Pop the Gold Bubble [View article]
    Posullivan, If the drip drip drip of the us dollar isn't scaring you, you need to have your head examined. I'll take a couple of pullbacks against the dollar slide any day. At this point silver is destroying the dollar in the store of wealth currency "game". Look at a chart longer than a month...... try 10 years

  • The False Myths of Gold and Silver Bulls Promulgated by Gold and Silver Bears [View article]
    pompano your comments are sad. You might not believe it, but a whole bunch of governments ARE buying gold, and have the past few years.
    "could easily buy stronger currencies" hahahahaha I think China tried that a few years ago when they thought the buck was reasonably strong. Seriously, what is a strong currency in this printing environment?

  • 3 Stocks for the Upcoming Bull Market in Water [View article]
    Kevin, I thought the same thing years ago and bought some PHO, the h2o etf. Sold it long ago, but your thesis is 100% correct. We just do not know the timing.

  • Commodities: Correction Is an Opportunity, Not a Disaster [View article]
    Excellent commentary "One clue might come from falling iron ore prices. We mention iron ore because it has been one of the strongest commodities for more than ten years, and it is also a commodity that is not traded on margin"
    This is an excellent observation.
    I have been using fe as my barometer for other commodities to prove to myself this is not a bubble

  • Why the Silver Bubble Hasn't Even Started Yet [View article]
    jpquezada This is the fraud. the government changed the rules in the middle of the game....
    "on January 7, 1980, in response to the Hunt's accumulation, the exchange rules regarding leverage were changed, when COMEX adopted "Silver Rule 7" placing heavy restrictions on the purchase of commodities on margin".
    Now I do not like analysts using the 1980 $50 silver price as a normal high because it was one trade at the very peak. A better number is mid $30's where there is some reasonable volume to back up the price.

  • Take Advantage of Sell-Offs in Gold and Silver to Buy Junior Miners [View article]
    Good article Jeb. My main concern is we get a snapback rally in the dollar which will cause a silver @ gold pullback, which will pull back the miners. There are a whole bunch of Canadian juniors looking for silver now. I own a few. You are correct that finding "friendly" countries can be tough. The Bolivia scare a couple weeks ago is probably not the last time we will hear of socializing the mines. All in all I still like the risk reward ratio.

  • Commodities Still a Bubble - But Prices May Continue to Rise [View article]
    Ugh, what exactly was so brave about this article? "silver @ gold are in a bubble but i think they will go higher".. Andrew you usually have better things to say.
    paper silver @ gold are going to go where the traders take them now.
    The physical is establishing it's own market, at least from what I see on the ground.

  • Afraid of Higher Silver Prices? Let Fear Be Your Investment Guide [View article]
    I fear the dollar is going to keep being devalued.
    I also fear the dollar will go up against other fiat currencies in the near term, so silver @ gold may still take a "breather"

    Good article Glen.
