  • Gold Bulls Rejoice As Stan The Man Joins The Ranks [View article]
    Since gold is quoted in USD terms, the debasement of all other currencies has given those who hold them an investment leg up. When the smoke finally clears, all currencies, even the USD, will be greatly devalued, and gold will run significantly higher since it is the only true money and has been through the centuries.

    To the question of whether gold is overvalued, or silver undervalued (or vice versa), one only has to look at the true all-in costs to produce the metals which are currently at levels of little or no profitability. This indicates that both metals are undervalued. Since silver, far more so than gold, is a metal critically important to everyday existence, in tech, biomedical, water purification, and for all types of military hardware and munitions, I would conclude that it is more undervalued than gold.

  • Inflationary Expectations As A Predictor Of Actual Inflation [View article]
    The best predictor (or indicator) of inflation is how much of your discretionary income is left after spending just for the monthly basics required by your family; rent, food, gas, clothing, utilities, medical, household goods. From my experience in the last year, everything basic to my family's needs is up over 20%, except for gas. The amount I save on gas is far less than what I have to shell out for the increases in everything else.

    No amount of technical analysis on market indicators is as real as what the 99% experience on a monthly basis.

  • The Silver Shortage Myth [View article]
    Please specify any silver mine anywhere that has any significant production, that went from first drill results to producing mine in 2 years.

  • The Silver Shortage Myth [View article]
    The situation with the supply of silver today is immaterial. What is more important is the future of supply. Today's prices, by any metric, are below average production cost of silver only miners. Prospects, exploration and drilling have been shelved to cut costs. But most of silver production comes from the mining of base metals. In this sector of the mining industry, the prospects are equally bleak, given the great commodity meltdown. Most experts agree that most mines take at least 20 years to fully develop, thus future production is likely to suffer. Even if both industrial and investment demand remain flat over the next few years, the supply will not be there. Even the bullion bankster mouthpiece that is the Silver Institute predicts a large silver deficit this year.

  • Is Asian Gold Demand Really Low - Or At An All-Time High? [View article]
    To understand the WGC agenda, one only has to look at its Board of Directors which, interestingly enough, comprise the very same corporations/banks that have been accused of manipulating (suppressing) the gold price to prop up the USD.

  • Silver Supply Deficit Is On The Horizon [View article]
    Yes, but that inventory is far less than that of gold, which is only marginally useful in industrial applications. We can certainly exist in an increasing tech world without gold, but not without silver. An extreme shortage in silver for its 1000s of industrial uses will be felt within 5 years, and the price will rise accordingly. The key to the future price is the level at which stackers will sell. Stackers are not traders, they are holders of insurance against global economic chaos which is, considering the current bankruptcy status of too many nations, just around the corner. At that point silver becomes less insurance and more investment. It won't be casually dumped into the market.

  • The 'Big Long' Gets Bigger As Goldman And HSBC Gobble Up Tons More Gold [View article]
    It is only a rounding error at today's prices. What if the Vampire Squid knew full well that the future price will be many multitudes of today's purposely suppressed one?

  • Has Gold Seriously Overreacted To The Expectation Of A U.S. Rate Hike? [View article]
    It's now been at least 3 years that the FED has hinted at some sort of rate hike in their meetings and pronouncements; presumably just waiting for the right economic news of a "real" recovery. Unfortunately, there hasn't been a recovery since 2007 and there won't be. All of the government statistics are massaged and manipulated to provide unfounded hopium to the masses. A rate hike of even 25 basis points would severely damage an already wounded US economy, not to mention the numerous bankrupt economies around the world. A Global economic implosion is just around the corner, and mixing metaphors, "when the tide goes out, there will be many dead canaries".

    The current gold price is almost irrelevant. After the smoke clears, it will still be the only real money, as it has been for 1000s of years. As the currency wars increase, all fiat will be devalued by 50% or more, and gold will increase much more than the math would indicate.

  • No Hope For Gold Bugs? [View article]
    The best rebuttal to the author's bearishness and very weak arguments is the fact that 2/3 of the global population thinks that gold is a legitimate safe haven and ultimate insurance policy against the pyschopathy of the money changers.

  • The 'Big Long' - Goldman Sachs And HSBC Buy 7.1 Tons Of Physical Gold [View article]
    The bigger question is where did the gold come from? Refinery, from miner production? Rothschild vault? The fact that the purchase was announced, rather than a surreptitious delivery from the USTreasury, indicates to me that the cupboards are bare with regards to USG vaults; ie Ft Knox, NY Fed, West Point. Or did it really come from the great Ponzi known as GLD?

  • Gold's Artificial Lows From Extreme Shorting Attack Won't Last [View article]

    "punish the Russian economy in response to its increasing military belligerency"

    The propaganda MSM has won another willing convert. The only belligerency is courtesy of Nuland, the US State Dept neocon psycho that overthrew the democratically elected Ukranian Govt with $3 Billion USD, and has caused the genocide of 1000s in Eastern Ukraine.

  • Gold's Artificial Lows From Extreme Shorting Attack Won't Last [View article]
    China revealed just enough information so that the Yuan would be considered as part of the SDR makeup, to be decided this fall. The US then, in its amazingly psychotic wisdom, then delayed any announcement for a year. The Chinese, not surprisingly, were pissed. Look for retribution, certainly coming before the end of the year. Will the Chinese dump even more USTs, suddenly announce that they have 10,000 tons, or something else that will hasten the USD decline? Just think; if they depeg from the USD, all hell will break loose.

  • Is Silver Running Out Of Sellers? [View article]
    The reality is that, according to USGS, the planet will run out of accessible and easy-to-mine silver within the next decade. Considering that there are no billion ounce hoards sitting in vaults (unlike gold) and that silver's non-substitutional industrial uses are critical to everyday existence, silver might become more valuable than gold. Don't bet against it.

  • Some Strange Things Are Happening At The COMEX Gold Warehouses [View article]
    Wow! what a comment from someone who obviously knows nothing about how gold is found, mined and refined and the risks thereof, which all relate to the basic economic laws of supply and demand. BTW, fiat is also inedible and quite constipating.

  • Former Gold Bulls Becoming Bears: Does That Mean Gold Has Reached A Bottom? [View article]
    Good comment. In Benjamin Graham's time it was true that markets were voting machines. Now markets mirror all of the corruption in society. FX rigged; Libor rigged; PM prices rigged. HFT in microseconds, spoofing, MF Global, the London Whale. It is not a level playing field folks; hasn't been so for decades.
