History Is Written By The Victors

Yardwork can be cathartic. The sunshine, fresh air and freedom to think can provide you the necessary clarity.

We've been at this now for nearly a year and a half. My simple intention has always been to thwart the evil intent of The Cartels. When they manipulate and suppress price, it's easy to get discouraged and frightened. They want you to sell. They want you in paper. They want to perpetuate the system that grants them their power. I will not allow it. As long as I have this platform, I'm going to use it. And now is not the time for weakness, nor is it the time for obfuscation. We must be resolute and confident of our fate for we are on the right side of history.

First, you must understand that the Comex paper markets are now singularly populated with Cartel traders and HFT algos (WOPRs). Since the Comex is no longer a trusted and viable metal delivery platform, it has been reduced to a simple shell game where The Cartel hides the bean and shuffles it right before your eyes, occasionally letting you "win" but, ultimately, deceiving you into a big enough bet that, when they finally decide to end the game, you lose more than the winnings you'd previously accumulated. Only chumps and tourists are tricked into playing this "game" on the street. Don't be a chump. Your only "winning move" is to buy physical on every bout of paper price weakness. Take delivery and store it.

However, I recognize that we live in a world where, to a great extent, paper still sets the price of physical. So if we are to forecast impending floors, tops and surges in physical price, we must be able to anticipate when and where paper price will react. My first inclination, of course, is to check the charts. I thought I'd keep it simple today and just give you daily charts with RSIs. Note that in both cases, the metals are within the zone I have predicted for a bottom and the RSIs are close to a bottom, too. Combining the two, it is clear that we are very close to a bottom of this manufactured "correction", likely within a couple of days.

However, the charts alone cannot provide us with a high enough level of confidence to march forward with full confidence. As we go forward, the disconnect between the paper illusion and the physical reality will become more stark. Though paper metal will still be quoted by various media and other agents of disinformation, underlying demand for physical will continue to be the primary determinant of trend.

To that end, I've recently uncovered a valuable new source of information. You see, being "Turd" has its privileges. Chief among them is the truly global list of contacts I have made. (Frankly it's astonishing and somewhat surreal. I'm even chuckling to myself as I type this.) In reaching out to these contacts, one connection led me to another, which led me to another, which led me someone whose insight and experience in the physical arena is invaluable. Let me assure you: He is not a figment of my considerable imagination nor is he himself an agent of disinformation. He is a real person and someone I feel that we all can trust. Let's simply call him "Winston".

In getting to know Winston, I feel that he has some great, extra perspective to add to the analysis here. I'm sure that he won't chime in all that often...frankly I wouldn't presume to bother him that frequently. However, from time to time, I hope to tap his vast knowledge of the international spot and physical markets so that all of us in Turdville can benefit from his unique perspective.

As this relates to the current Cartel shenanigans, Winston has passed along the following:

  • He, like us, observed the nearly 600 tonnes of paper gold that was unloaded upon the paper gold "market" at the initiation of this manufactured event. A clear sign that another Cartel attack had begun.
  • The selling has now progressed to the point that new spec shorts are being added daily. As noted here, this can be seen in the daily OI reports and indicate that the end of the decline is near, probably within the next 2-3 days.
  • Strong demand for physical gold at current price levels prevents any significant, further decline and sets the stage for a rapid, short-covering rally to begin once the trend shifts back to short-term bullish.
  • Because, post MFG, The Comex is no longer seen as a safe conduit for physical delivery, almost all new open interest there is paper-based, HFT and Cartel trading. (Confirming what I mentioned above.)
  • The HFTs that are currently short will be "tripped" back into "long mode" when gold recrosses and closes above the 200-day moving average, currently near 1680. Therefore, above that point, we should see an acceleration to the upside.

So, let's relate all of this to everyone here in Turdville. If you're trading, the possibility for additional downside still exists, however, we are very close to a bottom and there is likely some fiat to be made during the early stages of the recovery. If you're stacking, take advantage of this temporary, paper-induced drop in price to add to your stack. It is unlikely that you'll see gold and silver at these levels again soon, if ever.

Have a great day and keep the faith. We will be the winners in this fight for we are on the right side of freedom. We will write the history when the new era dawns.

I AM NOT A GLOBALIST & I BELIEVE IN PEAK OIL

Velocity... I don't normally do this sort of TIT for TAT response to those who disagree with me. Why? Because it is a complete waste of time. Most people will take to the graves their assumptions...whether they are RIGHT or WRONG. That being said, back in the day most of the people in the world thought the EARTH WAS FLAT. It took science and about 300-400 years to clear that up for the majority of people.

Unfortunately, we don't have time on our side. Most of the information on PEAK OIL is well documented by field by field analysis. This is not ROCKET SCIENCE, but just simple math.

Folks who don't believe in Peak Oil more than likely don't believe that 90% of the Fish-Mammal BIO MASS is gone from the oceans. I guess all we need is just better technology so we can wipe the ocean clean of the rest of that LOUSY 10%... aye?

GOD HATH A SENSE OF HUMOR.

@ Ttyberious ...Abiotic Oil

Gerald Celente is a sharp cookie and right (even if he appears radical) on most things in my experience

...including that Oil is produced by the churn of magma against Earths crust

The propagandists tosh (wild guess it's generated by Big Oil) that it's made by decaying forests and Dinos is so friggin old hat and stupid it amazes me anyone believes that crap any longer.

It ties in of course with the Monopolist Matrix's agenda of scaring the sheeple (Peak Oil) and the global monopoly oil cartels over-pricing what is a massively plentiful and should be extremely cheap energy resource

But if you want to believe in fraudulent junk-science and be herded from pillar to post (and totally fleeced between them) don't let anyone stop you

SO FRICKEN TIRED OF DEADBEAT ARTICLES

ANYONE ELSE SICK OF THESE TYPES OF ARTICLES:

Has Gold Topped, or we heading much Higher?

or

Can Silver Sustain its recent move?

or

Is Silver the next NasDaq Bubble?

or

Ten Reasons Why you Should own Gold

or

Are Aliens Beaming Large Amounts of Silver down to Earth to help JP MORGAN?

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

I realize that there is what I call the SUBSCRIPTION MILL. This is where precious metal folks have a website where they give information for a small monthly fee. To entice more COWS to SLAUGHTER, they have to write articles that are published on Financial Internet sites with their website listed at the end.

Most of these folks who write these articles DO NO REAL RESEARCH WHATSOEVER. So instead they write something similar to what I have listed above. You get about 4-6 paragraphs of FLUFF and then they inform you the GOOD STUFF is on their website.... AGAIN, FOR A FEE.

GOSH... I am so tired of this sort of BRAINDEAD work, and I do realize I am complaining. So be it.

Well, that's about all I have to say on the matter.

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

OH LOOK.... The Brits got their Gold and Silver Cattle prods out and are taking down the metals right at the close of the Asian Markets. Ain't that a SHOCKER.

Mr. Ayers, I presume?

"But, like with everything I do, I do it because of my love for humankind. All of us. Even the bad ones can be healed. (However they need re-education too)"

Wow, this sums up Leftist thinking in a nutshell.

Such good intentions.

Until someone resists re-education.

Poison. This place is getting loaded to critical mass with it.

On an anti-Keynesian metals site.

Makes one wonder.

Iran? NKorea? Nah, your enemy is closer than you think.

Have a good day, all.
