  • Gold to 6-month high amid Ukraine worries [View news story]
    Kerry couldn't negotiate a ceasefire at a peace rally. Unless he says Putin can keep Crimea, 1/2 of east Ukraine, and throw bananas at Obama gold will be at $1450 Monday morning.

  • Deutsche latest to tip off slow Q1 [View news story]
    Crap. This is sounding like only a 20% increase to the bonus pool for next year.

  • Rush of money into gold ETFs [View news story]
    I believe they took it off because it was wildly inaccurate. The plots did not match the on-the-hour reports or the gold prices reflected on reputable websites. It was probably updated manually by the same editors who provide the Gold-going-to-700 and other children's (or FED) stories. I also think they take on different user profiles (Macro Investor, Fear and Greed Trader, etc) and try to just overwhelm any pro gold comments with sheer volume and hubris.

  • Hilsenrath: New Fed exit plan taking shape [View news story]
    So really it's not an exit, just a pause. Then once everybody gets used to a 5 trill balance sheet being normal and the market drops a 100 points, Yeller will suggest that 10 trill is really exceptional. Besides, it should be time to goose Hillary's campaign by then.

  • Job gains of 175K beat forecasts; UE rate up to 6.7% [View news story]
    Alas, here in Ct., the stronghold of unions, illegal immigrants, and blowhard politicians eager to court them - gov't and education jobs have to be considered among the cream of the crop. They've stolen the banker's line that we have to pay more to attract talent and use it to ratchet salaries up 3-4% a year in a never ending circle jerk.

  • Stocks gain, metals slip after payroll number [View news story]
    Even with the CFTC in a state of flux, it's painfully apparent it stands for the Complete Farce Trade Commission under your great middle class protector. Things are taking on a Princess Bride tone. Since you know that we know that you know we're manipulating the price, we'll just hammer it to where we make the most money on the futures.

    Or it could be that they put out whatever numbers they want...so they can continue to do whatever they want - even if it's not working.

  • Overall country risk improving for gold miners, J.P. Morgan says [View news story]
    By the way the market is going straight up w/all the news being bad, everybody has to be betting Yellen halts the taper or even more likely, the Fed is buying the index so they don't have to reverse course (yet).

  • Overall country risk improving for gold miners, J.P. Morgan says [View news story]
    I think this is a lot bigger play then just the miners...just as pushing Putin will be a lot tougher then whooping up on Gadhafi or Morsi. Obama is running his mouth, for all it's worth, like Draghi jawboning but somebody is in for a major fold. I think it will be the U.S. since Europe has too much skin in the game. If China jumps in on the Russian side or lands a rowboat on the Jap islands, gold will be at 5K by morning.

  • Overall country risk improving for gold miners, J.P. Morgan says [View news story]
    I'd say this article is a couple weeks late since the world has just shifted again. China will end up controlling the African mines and maybe some of the S. American ones. The U.S. will probably end up w/the Canadian and C. American mines. The metals price (and miners) is about to go sky high but may not do anybody any good as gov'ts will just confiscate the mines as soon as China introduces a gold backed yen.

  • BP suffers major blow over Gulf spill compensation claims [View news story]
    Somebody ought to be suing on behalf of the wildlife...who bore the true brunt of this fiasco. Haliburton and the driller should also be paying.

  • Futures off 1% on Russian aggression [View news story]
    You got it. If a baboon farts in the woods, we send in drones to protect our interests. They are probably downsizing the Army because the CIA has gotten so big...and Kerry howls about isolationism. I'd say it's becoming obvious the $ is going down and Obama is desperate to start a war somewhere so he doesn't get blamed. The banks who benefited from QE are all pumping the piss out of the market for appearances until we can get one started.

  • Gold fix manipulated for a decade, says study [View news story]
    It seems to me, Obama just gave a few hundred thousand workers a 30% raise last week w/no input from Congress.

  • Gold fix manipulated for a decade, says study [View news story]
    Mt. Gox, Fort Knox...it will be the same thing. When the public gets to see what is in the vault, it will be a lot of nothing. The Fed will say...those nasty bankers (that happen to own the Fed) swindled us out of all the public's gold. How could we have known? Then every 2 faced Congressman will form a committee, wring their hands, and announce a new spending plan to make it all right. The Prez will say he thought the money guys had it worked out where he could blow a trillion a year to buy votes...and Jaime will be in his bunker in Singapore still richer then us.

  • SPDR Gold Trust on track for rare monthly inflow [View news story]
    I see they at least had the decency to take the gold line off the chart since they always had it charted as under performing the on-the-hour updates that came out...and worse then was shown on reputable websites. Now I think about it, I bet they just removed it because they looked silly posting negative stories in the next column when it was outperforming equities!
