  • Strange Developments In Precious Metals: Schizophrenic Silver [View article]
    Useless information really in the guise of something important.

    SLV is a paper silver tool of the Banksters and the Central Bankers.

    You would be an idiot to make investment decisions using their tools.

    So kindly stop bloviating and pontificating.

  • Is Gold The New Lead? [View article]
    The important point is that physical gold is not "paper" gold. Until there is a differentiation between the two (as in "I don't want your paper, give me the physical") there will be no true value of gold because "paper" gold distorts the true value of gold. The central bankers and the Banksters are using the paper/physical derivative distortion to depress the price of gold.

  • The 3 Faces Of Silver [View article]
    Well written and professionally objective as always Eric. The "three faces of silver" is a great theory in which to fit the somewhat perplexing parabolic movements of silver at times. I guess my question is how can we predict it?

    I am of the opinion that the pm's in general are subject to substantial paper manipulation by governments/central banks intent on keeping the price down and investment in equities up.

  • Gold And Silver Are On Their Last Legs ... For A While [View article]

    Short term pops in gold and silver may well reverse on Bernanke's whim, as we all know.

    Good article with excellent insight.

    The thread has been very interesting to read and you have made some excellent points in support of a very unpopular thesis.

    You are to be commended.

  • Gold And Silver Are On Their Last Legs ... For A While [View article]
    Excellent Analysis Ananthan.

    Thank you for qualifying the limitations of most technicals at the outset.

    I view the continuing breakdown of the Euro (seemingly, for now, in slow motion) as the single biggest factor in a strong dollar.

    Truth be told, the dollar is in no better shape than the Euro and I think most will agree on that.

    With those factors in mind, I agree with you that gold and silver are in a short to medium term reversal.

    However, any sign of a legitimate QE3 by The Bernank will bring gold and silver roaring back, and I believe that Ben will have no choice but to go nuclear at some point.

    Given the recent Hopium that the markets have been running on of a new QE fix, I also expect to see (because I think QE (x) has been priced in already) a pretty severe dive in the US markets on any real chance of more QE.

    I see the potential for the fiscal cliff to be a major reversal tipping point for gold to go higher. It's still unclear how much of an impact it will have in the first quarter 2013.

    Cheers my friend

  • Stock Market Week Ahead: Hope And Reality Collide Once Again [View article]
    Dear American in Paris,

    If you really do live in Paris then possibly much of this you're not aware of.

    I'll give you the benefit of the doubt.

    Housing is not recovering. There exists a pretty massive and increasing "shadow inventory" of properties the banks are holding off the market, as well as a long pipeline of properties that are in process.

    The July employment numbers showed a very small increase in part time job growth (not the kind of jobs which show a recovery by any means).

    Auto makers are continually and increasingly "channel stuffing" their products. This means that the vehicles are counted by the manufacturers as "sold" when it rolls off of the assembly line and/or is sitting on the dealers lot.

    Not to mention madav1138's comment (see below).

    Inflation is not subdued. If you lived on a fixed income, you'd know that. YOY prices of food and energy are up dramatically. Not sure if you've been to the grocery store lately.

    Over 70% of corporations missed earnings this quarter. The ones that didn't? Mostly due to the Rigged Market Analysts Lowered Earnings Expectations. AAPL has been low-balling the markets for years on their earnings projections, that way they get a nice pop in their stock price when they beat (yeah, right). The entire market sees that this has worked for AAPL. Now it's (fraudulently) commonplace.

    Any Questions?

  • Why Is 7% Such A Scary Number? [View article]

    It depends on the type of bond debt we're talking about.

    As we know, not all bond debt is created equal.

    When the last Greek debt fiasco (PSI) came around the holders of UK law bonds didn't take the haircut.

    Although the article link you sent made no mention of bond differentiation... I suspect that is the underlying assumption.

    If not then we always have the definition of insanity to fall back on:

    "Insanity is repeatedly doing the exact same thing in response to the exact same problem and expecting a different outcome."

    Excellent Article Eric.


    Indeed virtually all technical and fundamental HONESTLY REPORTED indicators have worsened world-wide, and yet, Magically, markets rise, for NO REAL REASON.

    Magic or Fraud?


    Gosh, do I even really have to ask that question?

    Hey Peter,

    Not sure what planet you're on man, and how much Hopium you're addicted to.

    Looks like you're trying to make it LOOK like you're *clueless* about the current economic state of pretty much the entire planet in terms of virtually every economic indicator, massive never before seen levels of world wide debt, obvious, blatant, commonly accepted stock market manipulation, and on and on...etc.

    Say it just aint so Peter.

    Excellent analysis Kyle.

    I'm not sure why the general investing world cannot come to the same sane, smart conclusions you have laid out logically and concisely.

    Oh, maybe it has something to do with Government Bureaucratic Bullshit, Political Pandering and Corruption, Media Spin, Gross Market Distortions, and Fantastic Fantasy-Like Manipulations of statistics of virtually every asset class world wide.

    No doubt Checkmate for not just Spain and Italy, but for the Euro itself.

    Cheers my friend.
