  • Zero Hedge Is Wrong About Gold [View article]
    Zero Hedge has been negative and it's readers have missed a double in the market. Similarly, those who have placed pins in the Fed voodoo doll and bought gold are left to blame a cabal of elites and central bankers,the IMF,World Bank and or BIS. The site tolerates and I believe encourages a virulent form of antisemitism with the most base "jokes" about Jews and banking. Zero Hedge has served its readers with losses by omission,losses by acquisition, and losses in IQ for the comments of its basement posters.I left there after simply understanding it is nothing more than a oasis for like minded fellow travelers of the "info wars" community.

  • 3D printer makers 3D Systems (DDD -4.7%), Stratasys (SSYS -6.2%), and ExOne (XONE -5.7%) are slumping, possibly with the help of critical comments from Jim Cramer. Asked about 3D Systems, Cramer replied, "It is not my favorite. I think 3D stocks are vulnerable to profit taking. Let's be very careful." [View news story]
    3 D printing is the new smartphone. There will be winners and losers but the upside is huge. XONE has Rockwell behind it. Don't pay attention and wake up in five years.Apple went from$6.56 to $403.00 in 8 years. Those who sold after crashes were and are mad at themselves.

  • Comex Gold Default? Here's What Not To Watch [View article]
    In this "Corzine" , & "bail in" era whereby outright theft is either ignored or legislated why would anyone not choose to own the physical? If one believes their portfolio has an insurance component against a currency devaluation via gold, isn't the risk one believe they are transferring by purchasing a ETF which is allowed to settle in cash in reality a greater risk?

  • Notwithstanding Friday's implosion, Barron's Randall Forsyth says gold looks undervalued, and pitches the precious metal as the anti-bitcoin: "It is incongruous that gold - money that can't be printed, just minted - would enter a bear market Friday." Calafia Beach Pundit disagrees. His next target for gold: $1,000. [View news story]

  • Far from being an independent entity, the Fed is "the other pocket in the same pair of pants as the U.S. Treasury," writes Cullen Roche, pointing to a FRBNY paper showing such. It's therefore inappropriate to see the Fed as "funding" the government with its asset purchases, contends Roche. It is the government.  [View news story]
    It is the government? Funny I don't recall voting for any of them,or seeing a complete audit as all other parts of the government are compelled to have done on request. Who is the Inspector General for this branch of the Treasury? And what about those shareholders? Are they government employees?

  • Carmen Reinhart warns that "financial repression" will be with us for a long time with a public debt overhang that will be impossible for policy makers to ignore. The latest buzz-phrase being bandied around by economists essentially refers to the negative real interest rates that bondholders and savers will see on their investments emanating from policy decisions. [View news story]
    Gold is suppressed and the SEC and CFTC allow illegal manipulations to continue. All in the effort to alter a undeniable reality. A cliff is rapidly approaching,and whether is 2 years away or five the drop will be very painful

  • Bond Vigilantes Set Sights on Sovereign Debt [View article]
    How do you factor in manipulation such as the PPT strategically purchasing SPY through primary dealers? See yesterday for example. Or Q.E .continuing via indirect purchases?The market is a mirage whereby a cabal with legal authority turns water into wine. Only, those who are privileged to drink leave a few drops for the rest to keep them in their stupor.
