  • Swiss Gold Flows Counter Reports Of Slackening Gold Demand [View article]
    Future historians will wonder why the connecting of all the dots took so long to expose the war on gold in the attempt to ensure the continuation of the fiat Ponzi scam. The volume of the gold moving East in the last decade is far in excess of annual global production. Ergo, some Western vaults must be emptying. It is interesting that the USG seems to have "misplaced" 7 years of Fort Knox audits. The repatriation requests and the farcical excuses on time frames to do so is just another clue. Then there's the theft of sovereign gold through "humanitarian intervention" or outright coup d'etat (Libya, Ukraine).

    It appears that the bullion banks/FED/BIS may be losing control over the gold market. Their price suppression schemes are dependent upon continuing access to physical to satisfy Eastern demand. With indications that Western vaults are becoming echo chambers, we could very well see a delivery default within the next year.

  • A Simply Outrageous Call On Gold [View article]
    The USD will be devalued by at least 30-50% within the next 12 months, and it could happen this year. The value of the USD is all about global trust and confidence which is fast disappearing thanks to our constant regime change, NSA snooping, and war mongering policies, not to mention the "corporatist totalitarian supremacy over sovereign state" implications of the treaties Congress just rolled over on. Soon, the FED will be the only buyer for dumped USTs. At that point, gold will go "no bid" and the average guy will not be able to obtain any. $25k is at the low end of the possibilities for the gold price and it won't take 50 years; 50 months may be more realistic.

  • Why 3 Terrorism Events Were A Non-Starter For Gold [View article]
    The strong USD meme does not have legs. Once the Q2 GDP numbers are out, the whole world will see that the US "recovery" was built on lies, manipulations and obfuscations. Even our supposed allies will start dumping USTs. The confidence in the USD will decrease at an alarming rate. At the same time the actions of China (AIIB) and the financial reset actions of the BRICS will look very inviting. The global community is getting oh so tired of US war mongering, espionage and interference in national sovereignty.

    We are heading for a decades long period of extreme stagflation in which gold will regain its historic value. It is the only form of money that the majority of the rest of the world trusts.

  • Why I See Gold Headed For $880 [View article]
    It's interesting, and rather disingenuous, that the author uses the last 40 years for the GSR; these same 40 years when the price suppression of the PMs became FED/BIS policy. In recorded history however, and without purposeful price suppression and manipulation, the GSR averaged between12-15. Silver comes out of the ground at a ratio of 8-9:1 (not 70:1), and above ground stocks of silver are less than 12% of estimated gold stocks. This indicates that either silver is way undervalued or gold is overvalued. Since gold, at 20% below production cost, cannot be seen as undervalued by any rational mind, it seems likely that both metals have a lot of upside. The scare mongers might be right that either metal can be manipulated to fall further in the near term, but the mid to long term outlook is for much higher prices.

  • Extreme Gold/Silver Futures Shorting Portends Big Rallies [View article]
    The bullion bank price manipulators view silver as the proverbial canary; after all, if silver rises and/or trades sideways when they attack gold, the regulators might finally wake up. Thus the silver price must be suppressed, ALWAYS. But the elephant in the room is not only the above ground shortage of silver, but, per the USGS, the below ground shortage as well. With future production of silver guaranteed to be lower for the primary silver miners due to the closing of mines and cessation of exploration and drilling activities, it will remain up to base metal miners to make up the difference with any silver production that will occur as a result of their efforts. Given the depressed state of base metal prices globally, this is unlikely.

    I am not the only one to connect these dots as the OI in silver is at record breaking highs, and the vast amount of silver held by JPM in its proprietary account speaks volumes; principally why does the largest silver price manipulator/short hold an estimated 300 million ounces?

  • Don't Get Too Excited About Gold Miners [View article]
    When the time comes for National gold audits, a paper stock certificate for a gold miner won't be worth much as Obama's NDAA authorizes the nationalization of all US assets. Other countries will follow. Gold and silver mines will be the first assets confiscated, without due process and without just compensation. If you don't think the vaults are empty, explain the US Treasury balance sheet pertaining to gold; "deep storage assets". My interpretation is that these assets are US based, but "yet to be mined" in Nevada, Idaho, etc.

  • Demand For Solar Is Shrinking Silver Supply [View article]
    A future major use of silver, until it disappears from the planet, will be in macro and microbiology and water purification. Although the biggest near term potential use, given the never ending global war-mongering, will be in armaments and ammunition and all the tech needs of war materials. A major war that is non-nuclear could easily utilize all above ground stocks within a year.

  • Peak Deformation [View article]
    A knowledgeable man connecting the obvious dots that government does not want you to understand. It's getting ready to blow; for god's sake, prepare yourselves for what's coming. All you have to see is the last 15 year chart of the S&P to understand the next direction for the market (USA Today has a good one). All you have to know is that employment is worse than the 1930's, the BDI has hit a new bottom as well as consumer spending, mortgage rates are rising, and car lots have the most inventory in 10 years.

  • Did COMEX Just Receive A Physical Gold Bailout From The Feds? [View article]
    I agree; that's why the last 12 gold audits have been mysteriously "lost".

  • Gold Crash In Store? [View article]
    The Jobs Report, rather than showing strength, proved that the majority of new employment is in the low wage service industries. And btw, since Obama's election in 2008, the vast majority of new jobs have gone to non native born illegals, the majority of which are probably illegal, although the USG doesn't differentiate between foreign born resident aliens (green card, H1B) and those non-documented.

    The author's gold view is too Western-centric. Globally, there is great demand for gold, especially at current prices which are below true production costs. The growing specter of WWIII, an EU breakup, and the obvious global debt/derivative bubble indicates a need for PMs as insurance. To ignore the value of the only "true" money in these times is ill-advised.

  • Weak Demand Weighs On Silver, But Still One Big Reason For Bulls To Be Bullish [View article]
    The purposeful suppression of the PM prices has been proven to be fact, not conspiracy theory, and the criminals have been identified. That's why I find it curious that Hebba would accept any "facts" (really propaganda) from the Silver Institute since its Board of Directors includes these very same criminals.

  • With Equity Markets At All Time Highs, Is The Housing Market Ready To Charge Ahead? [View article]
    The universe of those who can afford a down payment, have the requisite income, can somehow find the funds for upkeep insurance and taxes, is decreasing year over year. And if Fannie and Freddie keep buying NINJA mortgages (backed by the taxpayer), the next implosion will be worse than the last. The fact that the banks have yet to mark their balance sheets to market says it all. I would bet that the vast amount of mortgages still held by banks are underwater.

  • Silver Is Shaping Up To Be The Best Precious Metal Play Of The Decade [View article]
    The current prices for both gold and silver are well below the all-in production costs to mine. So neither are fairly valued. I am surprised that many posters of articles on the pms omit this fact; perhaps disingenuously so. And, btw, the ratio in the ground is 7-9:1, not 17:1 (see the annual USGS reports) and above ground stocks are the reverse; there is far more available gold bullion than silver bullion, as the 1000s of silver's industrial uses, gram by gram, are rarely reclaimed. An excellent case can be made that silver may become more valuable than gold, especially given the prediction, by the USGS, that silver will be the first metal to disappear from the planet (in as few as 20 years or less).

  • Just When You Thought The Worst Had Passed [View article]
    When corporations buy their own stock to boost EPS because profitability has taken a nose dive and they use borrowed money, not only for the buybacks but to ensure a dividend flow to investors, you know that the bubble is about to burst.

  • Economist On Gold - A Dissection [View article]
    "A little up tick in GDP numbers in Europe"

    What don't you get about the underwater balance sheets of all major European banks? The extraordinary unemployment in the PIIGS? The growing revolution against the totalitarian edict of "austerity"?

    "gold will remain a poor investment for many years to come"

    Really? When the current price is at least 20% below production cost? Name any other asset that has remained thus "for years to come".

    You are truly uniformed about the law of supply and demand, and the market equilibrium process. While it is true that the bullion banks and governments have managed to suppress the price of PMs for decades, the continuation of this policy is about to hit a brick wall, because the actual physical metal needed for this scheme has already moved East into safer hands.
