    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:

  • Interesting Times For All Commodities And Investments!! Chapter 102....... [View instapost]
    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.

    Tnx, fish, for reminding me.
    HAving an idea of the Great Disappointment that Dragi will serve the markets Jan 22, I'm looking forward to the FOMC-meeting Jan 27-28.
    I regard the Greek elections as a non-event.
    If at one thing the Greeks have Always since old ages excelled, it's at playing dramatic theatre. The script has been written, the tickets are sold, the actors are warming up backstage.
    The play will make the audience weep but at the end everyone goes home and tweets "excellent play that was; I was moved to the bone; should grant these actors a wage lift".

    "Honni" instead of "Honi"
    The English never understood frog-speech.

    fish,
    "Currency manipulation, gold manipulation, power manipulation, oil manipulation, aluminum manipulation, silver manipulation,"

    You are absolutely right and are describing a phenomenon that is going on since, let me guess, the last 5,000 years ? That's why it's such a Delight to study history in depth: you discover all the shenanigans over the ages.
    So I see no reason to despair now more than yesterday.

    If you accept the phenomenon of cheating by the authorities as something unavoidable like rain and tornadoes, you're a step closer to the solution.
    How do I deal with it ? Well, by being a contrarian in all my investments, by investigating corporates as deep and often as I can get, in short by being an uber sceptic.
    Trying to read one's mind -in this case a Central Banker's mind- is a further step.
    Another step: avoid FX, avoid hedgefunds and avoid miners:
    http://bit.ly/1udwtp2
    The final step is indeed: buy physical, little by little and hide it.
    But that's something you and I have been doing longtime ago already, so we didn't need the Swiss to remind us of that, did we ?
