The Wicked Witch and Her Boyfriend

She's back and she'd like to introduce you to her new boyfriend.

For your Friday fun, The Wicked Witch returns today and, to no one's surprise, she's still scheming to dominate the world. With her new boyfriend in her back pocket, she just might succeed. Or will she?...

Remember, our 2nd Anniversary Hat Contest ends today, too. The "winners" will have successfully predicted the final, Globex closing prices of the Dec12 gold, the Dec12 silver and the Nov12 crude. For a refresher, here are the guesses:

got another nub in the stacking game

Found a long lost friend and after 15 or so minutes of conversation and a few Sierra Nevada Pale Ales, he asked me how he could join the club! Stack faster, more and more people are jumping onboard not off...

Silver and gold shine for Obama

Silver and gold were the best assets to own during President Obama’s tenure, according to a performance league table put together by economist Jim Reid at Deutsche Bank.

Over the last four years, silver rose in value by 200% and gold went up 120% in dollar terms, following the printing of dollars by the Federal Reserve in its attempt to breathe life into the economy through quantitative easing.

European high-yield bonds, which started the Obama journey in a bombed out state, were the third-best performing asset class. US high-yield came fourth and copper was fifth, courtesy of continued buying by China. Hong Kong's Hang Seng index was the best performing equity index.

At the other end of the scale, European peripheral stocks were, well, peripheral, after failing to participate in the Obama rally, which pushed mainstream asset classes higher following the first quarter of 2009. The Athex index of the largest listed companies in Greece tottered in last, with a loss of 50%. The next worse was the Italian FTSEMIB index, just behind the DJ SToxx 600 Banks index. The Portugal General index was fourth-worst, just behind Spain’s Ibex 35.

Oh Well,

My guesses appear a bit high for all 3. I suspected this could b the case when making those guesses. If I had subtracted the 'optimism factor', I would have been a bit closer.  ( or if we shoot up $40 in Au, $2.50 in Ag, and $12 for Crude!)

  Scanning the entries, it appears over 90% of the guesses are higher than the actual price today.   What can be derived from this info?

Mantis's picture

All bulls round here

silver will have to have a pretty big spike to get near those guesses. 

hehehe

Looks like da boyz are having to throw everything they have at gold again today as it sure looks to me like it wants to break out to the upside bad. Yet every attempt above 1738 get's immediately repelled. Hmmm wonder why and who it could be that doesn't want it to get through this level on a Friday where a close at a certain level would likely affect next weeks direction.

Seems like WW wants to keep it below 1735.00. Can we get above that today?

Great comp Turd, Thanks.

Right On...

the mark for my gold guess (1733), missed silver by $1, but did NOT see oil falling that much.  Looks like very few people predicted oil falling without gold and silver also falling.

How funny that WorldEnd666 is leading the contest as of today.

good deals from Providentmetals.com

Providentmetals.com has a couple of good deals worth pointing out.  They have one ounce 2013 Canadian Gold Maples for only $35 above spot in any quantity (you don't have to order more than one to get that good price).

http://www.providentmetals.com/2013-1-oz-canadian-gold-maple-bullion-coin.html

They also have one ounce silver Buffalo design rounds for only 69 cents over spot in any quantity.  It does say that orders with these in them may be delayed for up to 10 business days from confirmed payment.

http://www.providentmetals.com/1-oz-999-fine-silver-rounds-buffalo-design.html?ref=slideshow

I have ordered from these guys many times and have always been totally pleased with their service and their delivery.  They will let you ACH them funds (which does not cost anything) or mail them a check to pay for your order (another no cost option).  They hold the check until it clears before they ship.  Both of these methods save the wire fee or the credit card up charge fee.

Remember, if YOU don't have it in YOUR possession, you don't really own it.  Keep stacking........and stack it close.

Heart's Yours

And the Bicked Bitch gets another helpful ruling- she is on fire

Oops...lost the W key someplace. Probably to George the 43rd...

So, now the big guys don't have to meet Basel 3 rules until later. Who might be covering up? Who in the world could want things to look better than they really are? Who did it during the election season and now whose back does he have? Hmmm......

At that Basel III link:

"However, the U.S. regulators agreed Friday that “due to the wide range of views” expressed by interested institutions and others that a delay was necessary."

"interested institutions and others"

Ooh, I wonder who? Not the banks, surely? No, they'd never do that.

Large cap miners getting slammed. If NEM can hold over $48 we should see a bottom and then a good move higher to take out the XAU 50 day at 184.4

A THORN IN THE SIDE....

GOLDIE "ROCKS" & THE THREE BEARS

This may be the title of my newest article when gold takes out $2,000 and silver $50.  After a while I just get sick and tired of reading the same garbage coming from so-called precious metal analysts that instead are confusing and misleading the would be gold and silver investor.

The three bears I am referring to are the following:

1) Jeff Christian

2) Jon Nadler

3) Ned Schmidt

Last week when the bullion banks took down gold and silver big time on Friday, Ned Schmidt wrote this from his newest article BLACK HOLE FRIDAY:

On Friday Gold seemed to have no bottom. This reaction is both typical of the breakdown of a parabolic formation, and is rarely reversed in a matter of days. Gold is going to be very vulnerable to selling, and buyers may be few.

Gold broke down in the charts on Friday morning, and that damage may not be repaired for some time. Though we remind that markets never move in straight line and that some bounce off an extremely oversold condition is always possible.

As a discontinuity, we can almost throw out that part of the chart before Friday. And contrary to the suggestions of some, chart damage did occur. The break below $1,700 is readily apparent in the chart. All the trading above that level in recent times is now over heard supply that must be cleared. A complete rebuilding of the chart is necessary, quite possibly from lower levels.

I wrote Ned today to tell him that again he probably just have waited a few days before publishing that article so he could save face with his subscribers.  I also let Ned know that when silver hits $50 and gold $2,000, that I plan on publishing an article crucifying those who got it so wrong.  This was Ned's reply:

 
Silver at $50. When the Easter Bunny arrives.

You had better wake up!!

Furthermore, on Nov 6th, Jon Nadler came out with another one of his IN THE LEAD articles and you are never going to believe what he had in the body of the text:

Last Friday’s near-$40 plunge (it was the largest one since June) in gold prices resulted in a dramatic reassessment of the bullishness that had pervaded the speculative crowd’s mindset since before the advent of the Fed’s QE3 program.

Veteran gold market analyst Ned Schmidt was a tad more…blunt with his take on Friday’s events and where they might now lead. He wrote that “Until this [Friday] morning the [gold] market was assuming that the Federal Reserve would keep making QE-3 bigger and bigger. That belief was supporting gold, even though it had already rolled over. Note our past comments on how the mini parabolic had already been broken. We have noted several times that the failure of this pattern is always associated with pain. Friday was that pain.”

Mr. Schmidt then went on to assert that “As is evident to today, Gold seems to have no bottom. This reaction is not going to be reversed in a matter of days. Gold is going to be very vulnerable to selling, and buyers will be few.

--------------

I know I am a broken record, but I just get fricken frustrated by these CLOWNS who are only writing these articles to mislead the investor and not to give FAIR AND BALANCED writing.

Anyhow.... I can't wait until gold hits $2,000 and silver $50. 

IT WILL MAKE MY DAY...

Response to wow

I was reading somewhere yesterday that a close above 1727.50 would paint a bullish outside day on the weekly chart so it will be interesting to see if the crooks will allow that to happen. With unlimited non back naked paper it sure makes rigging the game a whole easier. On another note Eric Sprott is looking to add to his PSLV fund again and has another offering.Between that and the Canadian Mint's recent announcement how's that going to affect demand for physical silver?

Ooops! Under the Radar - Again!

Canada has signed a "Trade Agreement" with China, only hardly anyone knows whats in it! Prime Minister Stephen Harper or should I say, "King Stephen the First", since he's so autocratic, had one of his 'minions' ink the deal for him, during his present visit to S.E. Asia.

Needless to say VERY few Canadians know what their "King" is up to in their name!
