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.

if you can't find anything on Zimbabwe then try Argentina who've been there and got the inflation t-shirt a few times

When do we give up? Markets

When do we give up?

Markets are SOARING each week. Yet we are at a 3 year low in the HUI.

If the market turns and goes down. The HUI will be at 10 year lows.

I'm just a bit nervous. I've invested way to much in miners (have tons of Physical as well) but I invest in mining companies for 3 years and am just holding them.

But I keep thinking when is it time to give up? I know that's what they want :(

Anyone know of any first hand

Anyone know of any first hand accounts of Zimbabwe's decent (or is that ascent?!) into hyperinflation?

Remember reading Gonzalo Lira relaying what he'd heard from the Chilean (I think) one and found it helpful to maybe recognise the signs and be better prepared to navigate through such times if they come to pass.

@ Dr. G. - - -

Off

topic, but interesting right now in the news. And its getting some media coverage.

Earth's lost frontier is about to be explored firsthand after more than half a century. It's a mission to the deepest part of the ocean, so deep that the pressure is the equivalent of three SUVs sitting on your toe.

Just wondering what James Cameron is going to find deep down below... something significant? Maybe the Leviathan?lol.

Either way... their is a reason more than just to see some odd fish and cl()ms.

Physical Supply Getting Tight?

Just got off the phone with my bullion dealer whom I have used for years.

A new company policy has been put into effect.

No more single gold ounce orders! Its now a three ounce minimum, with a twenty five ounce minimum for silver!

By the way - his gold price now adds a $60.00 dollar per ounce premium for gold and a $3.45 premium for silver!

Anyone else running into similar circumstances? To me, this smells of supply becoming very tight - or outright profit gouging. Or both! Time to go and haunt the coin dealers. Not looking forward to it. Most ask too much for junk!

Yeah, but do any of you guys

Yeah, but do any of you guys own a piece of your community via BAC or JPM? I didn't think so. Have fun with your AAPL and Obama campaign donation. Suckers. :)

..thought i picked up some sarc n your tone (ok typing)

New article up on the Armstrong copy site today, just read it, stocks could be for take-off, metals not so good

He had a long-armed spat with Gentlemen Jim over XMas, Martin calling the metals short and Gen. Jim long... paradox i've seen a few times they were actually BOTH proved correct calls in their own right (timing)

I hope they've kissed and made up

Having said that they're both making the same apparently opposite calls again

'Ding Ding' ..Round 2 coming up
