  • Straight Talk On Gold - You May Not Want To Hear It [View article]
    And there are many stocks you could have invested in that have since gone bust, many wells that were dry, and a dustbowl full of farms.

    All things have their time and place. For me... The question is not gold or not to gold. The question is gold now or later?

  • Straight Talk On Gold - You May Not Want To Hear It [View article]
    From an earlier post last December...

    Or another way to look at it since this is about investing… A 14 mm diameter 1922 U.S. Gold Dollar (President Ulysses S. Grant on the face) is worth about $1,000 today. Eight hundred of them would be worth about $800,000. $800 invested in the DJIA on December 6, 1922 would be worth about $130,000 today. An $800 1922 Ford Model T is worth about $19,000 today. The choice is yours. Past performance does not guarantee future results.

  • Expect A 10-20% Surge In The SPDR Gold Trust Next Week [View article]
    I have six children. The youngest is 6 and the oldest is 24. I would die to give them the same chance at a free life I have enjoyed. I would not kill for a simple rigged vote or I would have already had to do so. It is a foreign power usurping the voted will of my nation, whether I agree with the outcome or not, that I would be willing to go to war for.

    I'm thinking you did not fully grasp what I was trying to say. I will try to do a more pointed job here. I am arguing against going to war, or even posturing for a war, in Crimea.  I am arguing that the Obama position is one I would fight against if I were Crimean. Not because I agree with the outcome of the vote, to the contrary I despise it, but because it is Crimeas choice to make not Americas.

    You can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. More pointedly: you can't protect a region from something they want to embrace.

    96% http://cnn.it/1g2THpq not that I am a CNN fan.

    Absolutely no argument the history of Crimea and the various ethnic groups in Crimea sucks. How does our current foreign policy set that right? I would personally rather die for my nation than live under Russian rule. But I would just as rather kill than have my vote subjugated by a foreign power. So, however much I disagree with their choice, I will respect it just as much as I expect them to respect mine.

    And a good job of it to. The west is definitely winning the hearts and minds of Crimea when only 96% of them vote to rejoin Russia! I have to wonder how the average American would react to Russia imposing sanctions on the US because one of our allies voted 96% to do something Russia did not want them to do...

    A war can only be won when the enemy is only provoked into battles that can be won. Americans have no interest in supporting Crimea long term. What are we going to do? Send tankers of water to their ports forever so they don't die of thirst. Obama is picking a fight Americans do not have the heart to finish and Putin knows it. This is the stupidest and most predictable foreign policy failure in the making I have ever witnessed in my life.

    Economic sanctions will not last any longer than after the Georgian war of 2008. Neither will they have any more measurable impact than back then.

    P.S. Has anyone asked why "that whole economic sanction thingy"? I cannot find a single article explaining why Crimea is important to America other than our own self made perdition of sanctions and whining...

    Or put another way - what dog is this tail wagging?

    OK, let's be honest here. Everybody who knew where Crimea was before this year raise there hands. Who could last year, from memory, name their major exports? Largest trading partners? Crimea is not even self supporting so they have to have Russia or someone to survive. They cannot win a war because the electricity, gas, and water - all imported - will just be shut off. Obama will find a rock to hide under, Russia will do what they want, and American business will see no impact beyond increased news sales. Invest in the news providers if you want to play Crimea.

  • The Gold And Silver Smack-Down Cometh [View article]
    KF, While you are still waiting for Gold - you do realize from the prices posted that my down call was about Silver and not Gold, right? I'm asking because in the time you have been waiting Silver has been up, down, up, and back down again. I have took profit on four minute waves since this was published. Each of the four was recorded here in posts right after each sale. As far as Gold is concerned; the two traded very in sync today. I have no idea if that is coincidence or if they are going to go back on separate paths. I have not studied Gold much lately. I expect silver to bottom out this minute down wave on Wednesday night or Thursday day. Though after four good calls in a row it is about time for me to mess one up.

    Answered this twice today - not sure if my signal is bad or what. Short answer until I see if this sticks.

    3 days maximum. 8% trailing stop loss. Pay your tuition with SLV because it is a less expensive education.
