  • Is The Gold Market Manipulated? Part 1: Introduction And The London Gold Pool [View article]
    Funny, if I was Germany I would worried if it was still "stored" in the USA.

    It is a big deal because it will take 7 years for Germany to actually get all of it. Not 7 weeks. Doesn't that throw up any red flags to you?

    Why does Germany want their gold back?

    Me thinks something is amiss here.. Hold onto your gold and silver . China isn't dumb and are dumping US Treasuries for a reason..

    Losing 1k on the DOW right AFTER the election should have set off a ton of sell buttons as the manipulation wasn't needed anymore so those took their profits and are running for the hills!!

  • The 7 Reasons Why People Hate QE [View article]

    I take a simplistic view. We were taught to never mess with mother nature. Well the same holds true here. Once you play(change) the rules the game changes dramatically as well.

    Now when you really have no ending that seems plausible to work what do you do? Besides sounding like you have it under control?

    They don't !! Were in deep trouble once this dam burst. I believe they ran out of fingers, and only have a few toes left to put in the dam.

    Me thinks I see water starting to leak out !!

  • U.S. Investors Buy Early During This Gold Market Rebound [View article]

    I think you need to do some homework.. Gold is useless ? Silver is useless ? Comparing it to wood is the most ridiculous comparison I have ever heard..

    You know how much fiat money I can buy with the gold bought 12 years ago? You would fall down. But i tried to take my Christmas tree into the bank and didn't get very many offers for the wood..

    Good luck with the fertilizer for the garden. Might start with your post ! It will make a great fertilizer..

    Gold has been a store of value for over 4k years !

  • A Very Large Tree Is Falling In The Stock Market Forest [View article]

    Gotta tell you I still have plenty of EMPTY homes in my area that have neither a FOR SALE sign or a FORECLOSURE one either.

    Me think the banks still have an inventory they haven't released yet !!

  • Gold's Correction Is Not Over [View article]

    No inflation huh, Really.

    The Economy is healthy as well?

    I differ completely and my proof is my budget, everything is more expensive..GAS, FOOD, INSURANCE, TOLLS, ETC..Do you eat out? Are prices rising or portions shrinking?

    If the economy is healthy then why did the DOW do a complete 180 2 months ago when the FOMC minutes were released and hinted that QEi might be ending?

    Now tell me Europe is healthy as well, or explain why Germany won't get it's gold back for 8 years, not 8 weeks.?

    The G20 meetings just ended and i am sure that had an impact, some more consolidation can happen, but long term you better own physical or your in trouble..

    Sorry, i just don't agree with this article at all!!

    Charts are great for looking back , when you add manipulation by the FED and the TBTF group all bets are off. It's now a guessing game..

    I see a race to the bottom coming for the dollar as the G20 was basically a group hug !! imo

  • Gold: The Rally Is Just Around The Corner [View article]

    I am not sure the author wants to speak about this so i will try to shed some light on it. A few issues have never been proven however the audits of this ETF leave a lot to be desired for one. Additionally J P Morgan uses this ETF to do naked shorts. So if it shorts one ounce the custodian of SLV is suppose to buy that ounce.

    It has been stated that they do not, So essentially 2 people own the same ounce. Additionally it seems highly probable that SLV does not have the correct inventory. So if everyone SOLD their shares at the same time the Custodian does not have enough silver to cover it. Hence you will be suing for your money. Kinda like a Ponzi scheme but works as long as you have buyers and sellers.

    PSLV is a Canadian firm with much better audits, internal controls, and in the business seems to be on the up and up. I have no direct proof except Eric Sprott making statements that sometimes it takes him months to add a large supply of silver to his fund however SLV seems to have no problem daily.

    Below is a quote DAILY from Harvey Organs web page

    "The two ETF's that I follow are the GLD and SLV. You must be very careful in trading these vehicles as these funds do not have any beneficial gold or silver behind them. They probably have only paper claims and when the dust settles, on a collapse, there will be countless class action lawsuits trying to recover your lost investment.
    There is now evidence that the GLD and SLV are paper settling on the comex."

    So if the author wants to add anything else, or correct anything i have said i am sure he will. Just do your own due diligence, and look up who the Custodian is who is suppose to be holding all of this silver. You might be surprised!!

    I might add i have been following these ETF'S for a few years now and it is my impression something is amiss...imo.

    Top of the morning to all !! Does this concern anyone?

    Fed holdings sail past $4T

    The Federal Reserve's balance sheet has passed $4T for the first time after rising $14.1B this week to $4.01T.

    The milestone comes as the central bank plans to scale back its bond-buying program to $75B a month from $85B. Prior to this third round of QE in September 2012, the central bank held $2.82T in assets. Its balance sheet has quadrupled since 2008.

    Gives me the creeps !! Sooner or later you have to pay the piper..
