Hope Fizzles - Your Latest JBSFC

The seeming good news of last week has faded away. Like the previous Cold War of the 20th Century, where instances of détente and optimism abounded only to fade away, The New Cold War is once again deteriorating into a dangerous war of words and escalation.

As usual, please make the time to listen to this week's comprehensive update from Mr. Batchelor and Professor Cohen.

Hope

If the professor had questioned some of his foundational assumptions regarding how this conflict came about, he wouldn't have been so hopeful last week.  

The conflict will continue as long as Ukraine is useful to the U.S. against Russia.  NOTHING has changed that makes the U.S. want to back off on pressuring Russia.  And Russians don't surrender.

Forget Gold look at AAPL

SNB in full panic mode. They are losing big money now. How does it feel holy bastards? You've decided to change your house in a big hedge fund instead of keeping the swiss banking health in order, you MUST assume the consequence now.

Really, really bad crude oil inventory numbers just out. No real effect yet in price. Watch closely. Another break of $30 would be bad and may have a...shall we say detrimental?...impact on the stock market.

Germany brings home more gold: Bundesbank

27th January 2016, Comments 0 comments

The German central bank, or Bundesbank, said Wednesday that it brought home last year more of its gold reserves from overseas storage.

"The Bundesbank successfully continued its transfers of gold last year," the central bank said in a statement.

"In 2015, 210 tonnes of gold were transferred to Frankfurt from storage locations abroad: around 110 tonnes from Paris and just under 100 tonnes from New York."

Germany's gold reserves are the second-biggest in the world after those of the United States and totalled 3,381 tonnes this month, according to the latest data compiled by the World Gold Council....

Re: WHOA

And Crude rallies.  Why?

Gas and distillates inventories are beginning to decline.  So, while crude inventories are enormous, business activities to refine it into usable energy derivatives is subsiding (especially in distillates).  This is seen as a healthy industrial response by limiting capital expenditures towards overcapacity...hence, finding a natural balance.  Crude is going to hold price due to the fact that it is a finite resource and future demand presumed.  I don't expect much more downside even with massive inventories.

?? "Bad" oil numbers....

Bad for wall St.

Bad for the privately owned global oil "market" that Kissinger and bros. created....

Bad for system...

Good for stackers

I hope

no one here subscribes to this deuche bag.  In his latest article Avi Gilburt chides and makes fun of GATA.  This guy is a complete self serving asshole.  I wont even post the article.  This guy is the queen of trolls and king of assholes.  He doesnt care about truth or justice.  He only provides confusion and cares about himself and convincing you to buy his service.

They Want War . . .

and peace  negotiations aren't going to get in the way of that.  Its the 'best tool for reordering a society' (research Norman Dodd and his Congressional work on private foundations).

Vlad seems to be playing the waiting game . . . hoping the Europeans will wake up before this thing is launched.

Warren / douche bag

You're English, aren't you JW? !!

Anyway, I never cease to be amazed at why people would insert equipment like that into themselves when it could be avoided by taking a large bowl of pinhead / steelcut oats every morning (without sugar).

Unless, of course, they enjoy it.  Oh well ----- it takes all types, eh ...........

Pure MOPE

Highest oil inventories since 1930! Ho hum.

Totally overshadowed by FOMC press release today...

The Management Of Perception Economics is strong in this one.

Danforth Coxwell's picture

Steelcut oats????

perhaps if the user was from Scotland!!!!!!

You might want to look at the special adaptor located in the bottom left hand of the picture, to understand what this device is to be used for.

AGAU's picture

photo of Avi?

Which end do you blow in?

James Crighton's picture

Danforth (and impacted faeces)

Danforth, Sir, indeed, I am of the land of Wallace, William Wallace.

But, allow me to assure you that pinhead / steel-cut oats will work it's miracles on any bowel - whether in North America (where it will address even the most stubborn of cases), Lichtenstein, Antarctica and, yes, even The City of London.

The adaptor that is attached to the tube is to be inserted into (and beyond) the anus (gently, of course) - whereupon the reservoir (the red rubber bag) - filled with warm soapy liquid - is raised so that its contents flow into the caecum / descending colon - there to soften and coax impacted faeces - and to lubricate their descent (after extraction of the nozzle and tube), per anum, into the toilet bowl.

The other, unattached, nozzle is for another cavity - the details of which I shall not elaborate upon here other than to say it is for "ladies".

Dear God, ignorance was bliss....

As an Englishman, I knew our US cousins were a little 'different' in some ways,  but in this case, ignorance really was bliss.  I will stick to the fine old traditional English solution of a regular dose of medicinal Chicken Vindaloo to keep  everything VERY regular...

Agree With Silver Sooner

As Vlad said a long time ago: "The USA doesn't want partners. It wants vassals ". And Russia is not going to be a vassal to anyone. But when I say the USA I don't mean the citizens. I mean the owners. And when I think of the owners, I think Anglo-American Empire, I think Wall St. and the City of London. And when I think Britain, I think British Empire. And when I think British Empire, I think Balfour Declaration. And when I think Balfour Declaration, I think of Israel. And when I think of all of this, I think fiat, Banking, SWIFT, and control etc....

We're going to have to come together and throw off the yolk of these scum. For I fear we've gone a bridge too far and these neo-con loonies have us all in their cross hairs.

An alternative and perhaps more enjoyable use for the apparatus:

Fill bag with beer, insert nozzle into throat, squeeze bag.  Double duty.  Enjoy the sensation as the beer alters brain function, then enjoy the sensation of soothing regularity from the other end of the bod.

This is how one could get satisfaction from Avi's service, while paying only the price of a bag of beer.

I don't know about you but I would rather a fantastic vindaloo and a little ring-sting than have THAT thing deployed on me!!

Lime pickle and keep stacking.

Indeed gold slut - indeed.  I am tempted to go into some anatomical and physiological detail but will desist - on account of the sensibilities of the board.  Pity.

Bagpipes ??

When I first saw that thing I thought it was a set of American bagpipes. Not sure where the musical notes come out of though.
