  • Gold bear market over? [View news story]
    Steven,
    "gold and silver simply have established a convincing relationship... on the charts"

    You certainly have a point there. There is indeed a correlation between the POG and the POS... for a reason that I don't understand.

    But then, I neither understand why some people collect silver. Why not collect zinc, copper, uranium, nickel, lead ... then too ?

    However since collecting silver is a reality, the same mechanisms that account for collecting gold probably also apply for collecting silver. After all, isn't silver called "poor people's gold" ?
    That should explain the correlation.

    John,
    In this case they seem to have been coming through Greece by land, not by airplane.
    Greece ! Got the picture ?
    Europe is no Island and to have it's lengthy borders kept safe is simply impossible. We have no Mexican wall around us.

    I think it's about time the Western world reconsiders his foreign policy, especially regarding Saudi Arabia. They were at the basis of 9/11, the Boston bombers, now Charlie hebdo...
    They fund these madrasa's all over the world raising kids to become extremists, terrorists and murderers. I understand the oil interests, but there are other nations in the world who equally have large oil reserves and who don't hate our culture or values, the Russians for instance. Why not embrace them ?

    Steven,
    1/ Silver is industry related. Lots of international corporates use silver for whatever applications they may need it. Hence, silver goes up & down with the economic cycles. Gold not.
    2/ Silver vanishes: it's being used and then it simply disappears into the wild. Recycling of silver is out of the Q because it's way too expensive. Gold not: it doesn't disappear and it is being recycled.
    3/ Silver has no monetary relevancy. I have no knowledge of a Central Bank hoarding silver. Some private people hoard silver, yes, for reasons I don't understand. The only PM with a monetary relevancy is gold.
    4/ The underground reserves of silver are huge; the above ground reserves of silver are limited: the cheaper oil gets, the cheaper silver can be produced; underground Gold reserves are dwindling, above ground gold reserves are huge but overall gold is very scarce versus silver and has better monetary properties than silver.

    John,
    We shot two of them in Verviers on Friday but God knows how many will follow.
    Our secret service works 24hrs a day but is overwhelmed: 80 new cases had to be opened against jihadis returning "home" after fighting in Syria.

    al,
    Iranian sjiites are killed by the dozens in Iraq and Syria by Sunnis and Isis.
    The equilibrium has been rapidly deteriorating lately.
    With or without Putin, the Iranians will never get into modernity. Did the Iraqis, the Pakistani or the Afghans embrace modernity with the help of the US ?
    These people just don't change. That's what is called obscurantism and it's thicker than Mississipi mud.
    But if someone attacks my freedom in my own town, I sure know he's my enemy and right now that's safadisism, not mr. Putin.

    big,
    The SNB wants to keep in charge, not let the people decide.

    Roman,
    Beware.
    If anything the SNB has taught us, it is, never trust a Central Banker's word.
    Instead look him/her in the eyes:

    al,
    I understand, yes, but unfortunately the Saudis ain't no sufis, they're safadis and for the moment they jeopardize world peace.... and shale oil.
    Nigerian Boko Haram is an emanation of safadi islam, so are alqaeda and Isis.
    I may detest communism too, but in this world it's important to know whom not to fight and whom to fight. Embracing the bloody terrorists is the most stupid foreign policy ever.
    Russia on the other hand has a fast retreating population and it's economy is imploding. They have the atomic bomb, yes, but I consider that rather a reason to befriend them than to fight them. Their era of expansionism is over.

    al,
    I understand your point of view.
    I was only trying to corner you and make you say "I'd prefer communism", as I would do, although I'm a huge communist-opponent as you sure know from my comments.
    But with safadi islam generating from Saudi Arabia and responsable for 9/11, the Boston bombing, the Charlie attacks and all the other terrorist mischiefs, I started questioning myself whether the good old slash-the-commies strategy and the be-befriended- with- the- Arabs policy should still be honoured.
    My take is that it's time to change course.
    In my view Putin is a saint compared to any IS or alqaeda leader that is being sponsored by Saudi Arabia.

    al,
    Suppose someone makes you chose between extremist islam and communism.
    What would you chose, assuming there is no 3d alternative ?

    that is a disaster, not sure though if it is to those women, to the breast producers or to the husbands/boyfriends.
