  • The End Of Fractional Reserve Gold Is Nigh [View article]
    Gold is heavy and hard to transport or guard. That costs money. It was cheaper to just settle in cash. No point looking for the metal.

  • Markets recover after a brief crash caused by an erroneous report the President had been injured in an explosion at the White House. The news came about from AP's twitter feed being hacked. The White House says the President is fine, and the AP's White House correspondent calls the report "obviously false." [View news story]
    The biggest reason to sell isnt because of some chart squiggles, it's because the economy is slowing down. Fundamentals always trump chart voodo.

  • All Crowded, Speculative Trades Unwind At Some Point [View article]
    Equities? Interesting... I'd say a majority of people in the US own stocks and bonds either directly, or thru a 401K mutual fund. Talk about a crowded trade! Very few own investment gold.

    I wont accept that the gold trade is crowded until I hear about gold on the nightly news as the new paradigm currency, or some such new way of thinking, just like Bitcoins were touted. Or when the folks who currently "buy your gold" on the street corner are now selling it to you at inflated prices because it's the HOT thing. That's when I sell.

    We're pretty far from any speculative bubble in metals at this time. There is very little interest from Joe Public in metals. A correction doesnt make a change in sentiment and it's interesting how many "I told you so because I have a crystal ball" bashers come out when there is a correction.

    Good luck on your equities... and watch out for that deflation thing!

  • Can Gold Plummet To $400/Ounce? [View article]
    You mean, GLD "WAS" ripe for put buying. If you didnt have your puts on before 4/11, you're late.

  • Gold, Silver And Bears Oh My: What Is Behind The Huge Sell-Off? [View article]
    All this technical mumbo jumbo never makes anyone money more than 50% of the time. I automatically dismiss anything that talks about "support" and "resistance" and patterns as voodoo. Prices go where they go, a line on a chart isnt going to change fundies!

  • Gold Is Not A Commodity: What Moves The Price? [View article]
    ^^^ If you put half your life savings in gold at $1600, you did a very foolish thing. Especially if you have to pray about it.

  • Silver Prices Looking Lower Despite the Bulls [View article]
    "Shorts are now at three times the five-year average" - how is that bearish? They have to cover eventually.

  • Peregrine Semi (PSMI) files a fresh lawsuit against RF Micro (RFMD) in a Southern California district court. Peregrine alleges certain RF Micro products infringe a newly-issued Peregrine patent covering the use of silicon-on-insulator substrates to make RF chips. The new suit comes on top of one filed in a U.S. district court in Feb. '12, and 5 months after Peregrine withdrew an ITC suit against RF Micro. RBC estimates Peregrine's IP battles are costing it $5M-$7M/year. [View news story]
    Can't compete? Then sue, sue, sue!

  • After a crushing month (and a day) for the market and with a weakening U.S. economy, the calls come for more Fed ease. Trouble is, how much more can the central bank do? Even dovish members have signaled they are not ready for more QE, but - with inflation fear morphing into deflation fear - it may seem a little more palatable.  [View news story]
    To blame one man for the problems we have is a little... eh... insane. Instead blame 50 years to duopoly called Republicans and Democrats in Congress. They've both squandered our wealth and used our tax money to line their pockets and buy votes. You can go all the way back to Kennedy era and trace it out for yourself. You seem to have lost the fact that the Congress sets and approves the budget and tax code. Presidents arent kings in the USA.

  • Market recap: Stocks eked out small gains for the third-straight session but were limited as enthusiasm over reports over a Greek deal faded. Tech stocks were out front; Apple ended just shy of $500 as iPad 3 rumors and upbeat commentary added further fuel to shares. The euro rose vs. the dollar; oil prices settled near $100. NYSE decliners led advancers seven to six.  [View news story]
    So were houses at one point.

  • QE3 is not off the table even with an expanding employment market, says Bill Gross, heavily long Treasurys after an ill-timed bet against the paper in 2011. For today at least, Treasurys are taking it on the chin, the 10-year yield up 10 bps to 1.92%. TLT -2.1%.  [View news story]
    Bill WANTS QE2, so of course he's gonna talk about it....

    Why would anyone go long treasuries at this point?
