    I enjoyed the bio. I wish all contributors would do the same. Knowing where you stand helps me to better evaluate your articles and apply or reject your opinion.

  • China's Gold Reserves (Part 2) [View article]
    OK, picture this conspiratorial scenario; China, currently holds $2 or 3 trillion of US debt, approximately 10X our US gold reserve. Can you imagine Mr. Ji Xiaonan calling President Obama saying, "We'll forgive $? amount of your debt in exchange for your 8000 tons of gold? Otherwise we will not buy any more US debt, dump the Treasuries we currently hold, and overnight turn the USA into a third world nation. After all, you're entire gold reserve represents only a couple months your deficit spending."

    And where will oil prices go if Israel decides to act against Iran's nuke program, or if Kim Jong-il puts a warhead on his next missile and aims it south, or ....

  • There’s an old Wall Street maxim that the so-called dumb money trades early and the smart money comes in later. Trading by that phrase would have made you a bit of money this week, as equity markets have continually fought back from heavy morning losses over the European mess to close well off their lows. Traders note the three-straight turnarounds for the market are a bullish sign, as big institutions tend to dominate trading activity later in the day.  [View news story]
    There's another old Wall Street maxim that says robo and high frequency trading must close out all short position before end of day. They never carry trades overnight. Duh!

  • Inovio, Chelsea struggle after Feuerstein mention [View news story]
    I only wish I had the clout to manipulate stock prices as Adam did. Could have made a years income in a couple days; 50% on the January $3 puts today and probably as much on the calls in a week.

  • Doug Kass Says Buy Gold [View article]
    The rarity of an 8 standard deviation plunge is predicated on natural causes and events. When the price of gold is manipulated as is being done now, another 8 standard deviation drop could occur next month!

  • Longwei Petroleum: The Most Brazen China-Based U.S. Listed RTO To Date [View article]
    One scenario I haven't seen in the comments: The LPH principals were purportedly considering taking the company private. The speculation from Ken was something like $4 / share. If that is the goal, Cai Yongjun and partners might have picked up 14.5 million shares on the cheap.

  • The Fed's latest QE program poses risks to the bank's credibility, says Philadelphia Fed President Plosser, as the policy will likely fail to deliver a substantive impact on employment. What will Bernanke and crew do then? One editor's guess: Double down. [View news story]
    QE; the quintessential, ultimate trickle down! Did you ever wonder why the financial press and MSM don't call it for what it is?

  • Calculating A Proper Valuation For Silver Wheaton [View article]
    The only issue I know of that could negatively affect SLW's valuation is that many of the lucrative $4/oz contracts that they have will expire in a year or two. Of course the author didn't consider this in his hatchet job.

  • Capitalizing on the Rise in Silver Prices [View article]
    A fifth way to profit from a continuing explosion in silver prices is Silver Wheaton (SLW). It has outperformed SLV handsomely in the one year, three year, and five year time frame.

  • 1 Oz Gold Valued By U.S. Currency In Circulation And Outstanding Debt [View article]
    Michael,
    It might be interesting to value other country's gold reserves against their debt. like Germany with 3400 tons, China with 1500 tons, etc.

    Yikes! I just bought a ton of UXG in anticipation of the merger (and visions of another GG success story). Maybe need to hedge with TNR.

    TNR market cap is less than $9 million. If it's such an issue in the value of Minera Andes and the merger, why doesn't McEwen just buy them....or it that the plan after the merger?
