  • Gold gets a downgrade at Goldman Sachs, the firm lowering its 2013 end-of-year price forecast to $1,800/oz., and 2014 to $1,750. "We see growing downside risks ... the gold outlook is caught between the opposing forces of more Fed easing and a gradual increase in U.S. real rates on better U.S. economic growth." [View news story]
    3rd eye - If none of the things I said in my prior post is true, then Gold goes down.

    They (CBs, Fed, WS) has to manipulate - there is no alternative if you want to avoid collapse. See my other comment.

    GS, Central Bankers and other Wall Streeters hates two things more than almost anything except a Justice inquiry: Emerging Markets and Gold. The developed world is slowly dying, they know it and need your capital to stay in US and European equities. This means they will ALWAYS find something bad to say about both. Europe is a mess, in recession and we are not far behind.

    Sadly, this is not an aberration but a longer term proposition due to the fat and happy welfare states they have created for the dumb as dirt slave to the state electorate. How they can ignore all the money printing and Gold safe haven impact with middle east unrest is beyond comprehension. And, then there is the massive middle class in Asia Central and SA that loves the metal. I think there are plenty of good reasons to buy more now while you can - equities aren't going anywhere. Top line sales for S&P has been going down EVERY year since 2008, a fact Wall Street conveniently ignores. They recently had a story on this critical stat as a "new worry"? New? It's only new because nobody on WS talks about it.

  • Flash crash in gold? The yellow metal dives $20 in the space of a few trades, now -1.6% to $1,716/oz. [View news story]
    Interesting all the hand wringing about the *massive* futures decline yesterday for GOLD. Did not happen, nada, zip. You can't fake out the market, it will find its price, don't listen to all the anti gold hype heard on this site and coming from WS. And THEY complain about the crazy Gold bugs!

    I do in fact believe in conspiracy - you only have to look at the length the fed goes to assure that inflation does not appear, which is the rocket ship for Gold. They phoney the numbers so rates can stay low acc. to plan - if they can fake us out long enough to get the economy on some footing then all is well and they can report slow inflation growth. When they say "targeted" inflation, they mean it!

    BTW - its these same folks in the developed world economies that are grasping at straws as they drown in debt. They want your capital in THEIR equities, not Gold, not EMs.

    The gold is sold ...

    by the alternative investors that don't want your capital to go to something they don't own. Its unpatriotic for Gods sake to think that the developed world markets are not the place to be. Just forget all that talk about printing money to pay for all the goodies, the can is still being kicked down the road but is starting to rust out to nothing and pretty soon can't be kicked around anymore.

    Talk amongst yourselves.

  • The Stock Market Rebound Is Coming [View article]
    There is no safe haven, anywhere. The author sounds like the Motley Fool brothers did when they kept telling people to buy internet crap because, well, it has been going up. I did not buy it then, and I think equities today are a fools game.

    The only possible investments that make any sense: Short Europe (in recession and they are still doing better than Asia this year?), buy some Gold and some emerging markets where there is organic growth (vs no growth in the developed world of bloated governments and dumbed down, wimpy electorates).

  • October Nonfarm Payrolls: +171K vs. consensus +125K, Sept. revised to +148K from +114K. Unemployment rate 7.9% vs. consensus 7.9%, 7.8% previous. [View news story]
    The economy is looked at through rose colored glasses ONLY by the folks on the left - I would guess they financially benefit from govt largesse, so we will never change their views until they are no longer on dole.

    Re our election, ask anyone who voted for Obama (other than Blacks) what they do for a living, you will see my point.

    More blacks in Jail than in College. What a sad state of affairs and getting much worse over the last 4 years. But this is not because of racism. Its quite simply because so many unfortunately felt the Govt would solve their life's problems with the election of BO. This is not about race at all, it's culture. And nobody in the media has the courage to put this culture down and kill it for the sake of the people that don't know better. Blacks will vote en masse for Obama - look at the polling stations and see the sadness of lemmings at the cliff.

    Wonderful Obama Recovery! Give up on your ideology and please think logically. How does a 40% unemployment rate grab you!? Click here:

    No recession? Anybody believe these numbers at all? Every day, more big layoffs and ZERO new hiring. Cummins just reported layoffs of up to 1500. Most economists say Europe is in recession next year, probably US too. Remember that this is election time and the sources for all of our economic stats include the admin loving US Fed Govt (BLS) and are reported and spun to always find some good news by the same media that does not think the Benghazi story is a story at all. Come on folks, wake up! The fix is in for BO but it won't hunt this time because it's painfully obvious that the 4th estate is doing its best to make the worst look good, and intelligent folks know it.

  • Bearishness among heavy-hitter money managers surveyed by Barron's rises to 27%, nearly double the amount from April's poll. As for individual sectors, there's no love for the utilities, with just 1% of respondents picking it as the best-performing industry over the next 12 months, and 20% choosing it as the worst. We've given away the answer, but guess which is today's cover. Feel better, bulls? [View news story]
    True - a gain is a gain. I am not saying you don't have gains if you have sold them. You may even have paper profits. But if you have not sold and profited on paper from all the foolishness, then I think you may lose them all when the big market correction comes. At the least, I would put a stop loss at your gain amount so far so you don't lose anything. Investing in US stocks is investing in America. If you feel that America is doing just fine over the last 3 years (since BO was elected/this is NOT a coincidence), then you are in the right place. But politics is not a good way to make money in equities long haul. Traders do well here in manipulated markets but the little guy won't.

    The market cannot be manipulated for long, never has. I think the EMs will be the place to be for the next 20 years, at the Developed world's expense.

    I have been in EMs and Gold for 5 years. The last 2 have been bad for EMs because the media convinced people that they were too risky. Right. Hard to believe people bought this foolishness. No risk in Europe? US real unemployment twice the reported rate and developed world facing recession once again? I will take EMs where the people (more of them than us) work harder and are smarter than we are. I hate to say this about my good ol USA, but its the truth. I see nothing really good on the horizon for the irresponsible fat and lazy Americans who sue each other when things don't go their way.

    Gains of 2012 were false gains based on (1) Fed forcing no other investment choices and (2) central banks/WS/Liberal BO Media making people think US is safe haven for investments (also helping their POTUS). These are clearly the wrong reasons for the market gains, esp in light of growth in the alternative developing world/emerging markets. There has to be a huge correction soon, the market does not like spin and phoney valuations. PEs are way high compared to BRICs and other EMs, these economies actually have growth - organic

    2013 will be the year to short US and Europe and buy EMs and Gold. Oh, and Utilities are the play if you must be in US equities along with real estate.

    This time, the little guy is wise to the markets (having learned the hard way) and for now, may have missed some gains but in a few months the shoe will be on the other foot and WS bankers will be running to the exits.
