  • With Yields This Low, Is Shorting Treasuries the Trade of the Century? [View article]
    TBT's action on the official QE2 announcement was a good tell. Strange though...there was about 20+ minutes before TBT/TLT seriously moved (any theories on that?).

  • 6 Silver Stocks Ready to Follow SLV's Momentum [View article]
    I'm thinking that today was a bit painful for anyone still holding a thick book of shorts.

  • CFTC Investigates JPMorgan, HSBC: Silver Market Manipulation May Have Kept Prices Down [View article]
    Marco,

    Leaving the case aside, what I love to see is action like SLW has been putting up. Fills the gap below in the morning, then continuing up. That's raw strength.

  • CFTC Investigates JPMorgan, HSBC: Silver Market Manipulation May Have Kept Prices Down [View article]
    Marco,

    so many of these cases end in a very long, drawn out process, culminating in a slap on the wrist. Do you really see anything substantial coming out of this investigation? I'm having trouble seeing it.

    Even if the conspiracy is proved...what then?

    BTW, I'm still bullish on silver.

    I love this company, but cannot figure out why it has been performing so poorly.

  • Is Now a Bad Time to Be Short Silver? [View article]
    You're absolutely correct! People don't want to hear it. I've received a good share of downward pointing thumbs for mentioning that this will be a non-story for silver bulls...which I still am regardless of this story. I just don't have any faith in the system.

  • Increases in minimum wages had no negative effects on low-wage employment and successfully increased the income of workers in food services and retail employment, Nancy Folbre writes, citing a new study.  [View news story]
    Really? Let's see all the data, Nancy? How many jobs were not created because of the increase?

    SLW, NGD look to be filling the opening gap (like they always do)...last chance entry for the next move. I'm in with tight stops. If the breakout fails today there will be other opportunities.

    This suit will be a non-story as soon as everyone realizes that any legal action will take years.

  • Silver: Strong Demand for Poor Man's Gold [View article]
    Fin. Reg. is just political fluff as long as it is applied unevenly. When multi-billion dollar banks are able to settle in civil (rather than criminal) proceedings with relatively small million dollar fines, no idealistic, new regulation will fix anything. Why make more regulations when they can't ( or won't) enforce the rules already written? I'll start paying attention when the rules are given some bigger teeth.

    Yes, I'm a bit jaded...regardless, I'm back in on silver.

  • Silver: Strong Demand for Poor Man's Gold [View article]
    The stronger companies in the sector had a great day with good volume. I keep hearing how so many factors are already priced in to the overall market (election outcome, QE2, etc.), but I'm not so sure. It's too easy. There's another shoe to drop.

    As for the manipulation story...it looks like it's a non-story for now. I bet that as long as the economy is at risk the big banks are going to keep their protection, no matter who owns the house next year.

  • 11 Reasons Why the Gold Bubble Will Burst [View article]
    A better title would be, "11 reasons why the gold bubble will burst...someday." I'm not as confident in gold as many posting here, but I do have a couple of pm positions that I've been in and out and back in again.

    My point is that I've heard most (not all, but most) of these 11 points over and over again for years.
