Fast Market = Fast Update

Thu, Oct 27, 2011 - 10:39am

No time for dillydallying today. Things are rolling so let's get right to it.

Let's start with our two base commodities as the PMs are definitely drawing some strength from them. As I type, Dec11 crude is up $2.41 at $92.61. DrC is charging higher again, too.

These two have given a boost to silver which is finally trading back above $34.

Gold is lagging just a bit but the chart suggests that it won't be lagging much longer.

That's all for now. I'll have a more detailed update after the close. TF

1:10 pm EDT UPDATE:

As this epic drop in the POSX continues, look for even more downside tomorrow. As noted in the post from later yesterday, once 76 gave way, The Pig looked to fall into the abyss. As you can see on the chart below, 74 looks likely as a short-term bottom.

Dropping to 74 tomorrow or next week would likely be the impetus for gold at 1780 and silver at 37. TF

The battle at 1764 will commence soon enough. Let her have a breather prior to that.

EU phoria

All the markets are feeling good on the back of the Greek bailout plan. Looks like everything is going to crank upwards for a bit.

Does anyone keep an eye on Nickel?

I heard a new perpetual energy machine (the E-CAT) is being tested in Italy tomorrow and uses Nickel and Hydrogen to produce copper and heat (looks like will be back to steam engines again!)

So I just went all in long Nickel just in case our energy problems are solved tomorrow...... (I know, I know) but it would be nice though eh!

I guess a wee open crude short wouldn't be amiss to have tomorrow either!

Short at >$45

Like I commented awhile back during the dip... I don't see it going below $30 for too long, and if it does, buy hand over fist. Yeah we hit $28... then $27.. nearly $26 etc but still. You had to time that perfectly and it was almost always in afterhour trading.

I wouldn't buy this momentum, once it hits $40-$45 range I wouldn't be surprised to see it slammed right back down to where we are to try and create a faux trading zone. I will probably go short if it gets to >$45 within the next 2 weeks.

Then again I wouldn't be surprised if this shit just exploded to $65-$70/oz -- either way don't get caught with your pants down. Play the game that they're making you play, just be sure you stack physical too on a consistent schedule. This manipulation will eventually come to an end.

I'm just happy I bought at $30.

Disclosure: I will most likely NOT open a short position because I don't play around in the paper markets, but, I have tossed around the idea and I think that is where the next takedown will happen. They can't afford for it to hit its recent highs and if they did change sides to the long side of the trade, I don't think we'd be at $34 and change ... we'd probably be at $40 and change if not $50.

Just my two cents.

What A Joke

A year and a half ago we were in the same situation with Greece. Then they "fixed" it. The market shot up. Now they "fixed" it again. Mr. Market, like a bunch of 7th grade girls, gets all giddy and goes flying up again. "We fixed it!!! We fixed it!!!" What a joke. I'm not really that excited about the move in gold and silver. Gold isn't moving. We'll see. My ridiculous guess that they will sooner or later print 10Trillion for the PIIGS isn't looking so ridiculous anymore.

The E-CAT is supposed to be a

The E-CAT is supposed to be a catalytic fusion device (ie cold fusion), not a perpetual motion machine. Nickel and hydrogen are the fuel for the process, and copper is the waste.

Also note that the amount of energy produced is so huge that nickel would likely fall in price, as mining would become all but free. You could power your home for a month with just a single US nickel.

Ag Fire - Ho Hum

Seems to me that Ag is simply following the rest of the commodity world today. Nice moves in energy (except natgas) cotton, soybeans. Also like those moves in UST rates. Is reality getting a hat tip or is it just more EUR nonsense?

GROUPIES? I'd like some. How about at least we make SASHA TIREBITER the official Turdville mascot????

Like Turd mentioned

higher highs + higher lows = bull market

Sometimes, it really is that simple.

Catholic Priest on "Vatican World Bank" Statement

Here's a good piece from the Wall Street Journal by an Austrian economics Catholic priest regarding to the so-called "World Bank" statement made by someone in the Vatican. Pretty good:

Fascinating comment from previous thread

Submitted by DarkPurpleHaze on October 26, 2011 - 9:11pm.

"The one thing that somewhat fascinates me and appears to be a game changer that we've possessed for quite awhile are the Predator drone systems in place and how they've evolved and what it allows us to accomplish."

Never mind the illegal assassinations and the thousands of civilian casualties.

Together with the almost daily peddling of the "Iran war" from articles by his friends over at Debka, the EE seems to have here a powerful ally.

Just doing some reading of

Just doing some reading of the GDP BS, and well a GDP of 2.5% on a $14.5T USA Budget = $400B profit. Our debt is $8B / day.

$400 / $8B = 50 days or less than 2 months. 10 months of the year is all down hill.

This is so lopsided, it is hard to believe the stock market likes 2.5%? We are at $14.95T in debt---about ready to surpass $15T in days.
