  • The Up-Tick Rule Reimplementation Is Bad for Markets [View article]

    I had no idea this column was a comic's column. So, the author likes not having the uptick rule. Really? Funnnnnnneeeee. Thanks for giving all some comic relief from the current market conditions.

  • Gold hasn't been this deep in the buy zone since early 2005 as CFTC data show a massive exit of large speculator net long positions. What this says about the long-term trend is a question of debate, but it's probably not the worst short-run indicator. GLD +0.9% premarket, continuing a minor bounce since the metal fell below $1,200/ounce last week. [View news story]
    I'm looking for Gold, the metal, to touch 800-900 before taking off again. Silver must rise from its current level to make the ratio tighter than 65 to 1 currently. YMMV.

  • Gold slipping in the wake of the Fed's even easier policies doesn't surprise Uri Landesman, who sees a dramatic correction ahead. The metal performs best as a "flight to quality," he argues, and the Fed moves take that bid away. His downside target next year is $1,400/oz. [View news story]
    BernAnke and the Gold fake out means nothing to the entire world like Brazil, China etc. Gold will win out and GLD will follow real gold sooner or later because they buy gold like you do.

  • SLV Reaching A New Low [View article]
    Silver seems like a bargain today. You want to buy when others hate it. Back up the truck for next year.

  • Ariad slides again as FDA details adverse event reports [View news story]
    let me understand. this drug is given to people who do not have hope of living because of their disease. It works without bad side effects in 80% of the case, develops blood clots, strokes, and other dangerous things in the rest of 20%.

    and this is bad? suggest we take a further look at Acetaminophen and NSAIDS closer, too, then. We want a silver bullet I suppose.

  • GLD: Do We Have A Date With 142? [View article]
    I am watching the attempt of the QE and Bernie, not Madoff but Nanke, to balance the 9 FED plates on a stick in the circus act forever. The problem occurs when Bernie, both names associated with Ponzi, tries to pass it off to a less able clown and juggler.

    We could have GLD at 90, too, at least SLV is attempting to correct the 65:1 ratio now that we have. Still looking for 2014 to get there with Gold the metal as low as $900 and silver the metal above $40 easily..

  • Thursday's Action Suggests Silver Is Worthless But Is It? [View article]
    Christopher, I could not agree with you more, on everything. I am into SLV for one reason, liquidity. Otherwise you have been reading my mind as the ration comes together tighter than 65:1 due to electronics useage and demand alone. My prediction is Gold to $800-900 and Silver, the metal, up to $40-50 to correct this imbalance. That would easily double Silver holdings value, and within a year at the expense of Gold stashes..

    It also reminds me of the old math problem: How many jumps does it take for the frog to get out of the well? I see the frog sinking deeper into the well to 800-900 by late summer.

  • What Does The Gold/Silver Ratio Tell Us Now? [View article]
    I always thought GLD and SLV followed the price of real Gold and Silver, Duh! and so at the historic 16:1 ratio either Silver must rise to $50 an ounce or Gold falls to $800 for this ratio. I'm betting by summer 2013 that Gold (real metal) will be close to $800-900 and Silver close to $40-45. Let's see.

  • Precious metals go into the tank on chatter the G-7 is set to issue a statement in which all will pledge to get along with regards to currency devaluation. The G-20 meets in Moscow at week's end. GLD -1.2%, SLV -1.5%. [View news story]
    I'm with Tampat, another buying opportunity coming. Ask China and India to stop buying Gold and I'll listen, maybe.

  • New Low In Silver; Lower Low In Gold Still To Come [View article]
    Silver at $15 and a Ratio of 16:1 makes Gold $240. Silly
    Gold at $900 and a Ratio of 16:1 makes Silver $50. Possible.
    ObamaCare Fan is about to hit the public this fall. Just wait.
    I will be long Silver even more so. Coins, not bars. Maybe a
    physical Silver Door stop on my log cabin in the woods.
