Turd on the Brink of Insanity

Fri, Apr 13, 2012 - 2:01pm

So, this is how it works in the Age of Lies, Obfuscation & Nonsense.

2/29 - Bernanke testimony. Down go PMs. https://www.tfmetalsreport.com/blog/3465/csi-comex-gold-and-silver-massacre

3/8 - Bernanke buttboy Hilsenrath talks. Up go PMs. https://www.tfmetalsreport.com/blog/3494/whatever-sterilize

3/13 - FOMC minutes no QE. Down go PMs. https://www.tfmetalsreport.com/blog/3520/literally-sick-my-stomach

3/26 - Bernanke talks. Up go PMs. https://www.tfmetalsreport.com/blog/3578/thank-you-mr-ben-bernank

4/3 - FOMC minutes again. Down go PMs. https://www.tfmetalsreport.com/blog/3615/schizo

4/11-12 - More talk of QE from Bernanke, Yellen and Dudley. Up go PMs. https://www.tfmetalsreport.com/blog/3654/sack-nonsense-redux

4/13 - Bernanke talks. Down go PMs. https://www.zerohedge.com/news/no-hints-qe-latest-bernanke-word-cloud

Absolutely ridiculous and comical nonsense. NO ONE should be attempting to trade gold and/or silver futures on the Comex. The WOPRs and The Cartel are completely in charge and every mutterance and headline sends a cascade of HFT orders based solely upon phraseology and syntax. THIS IS MADNESS! In the end, the fiat price of true money is left to shift in the wind, regardless of the underlying fundamentals. Therefore, THE ONLY ONES WITH A CHANCE are the regulars in Andy's Army. EVERYONE ELSE must avoid day trading at all costs. THE ONLY OPTION is to buy physical metal on paper metal dips and TAKE DELIVERY.

Have a nice weekend. TF

I'm holding out for a further dip before buying more... but I'm watching the madness.

As I said in the last thread,

As I said in the last thread, I hope Andy knows what he is doing with his trades or that money is just money pissed into the wind as well.

How big of a chance does Turd's army really have at this point to make some profits? I'm honestly curious about this and can't wait until we hear how they've done in their first sessions. I hope they don't get their asses handed to them.

As I said when I introduced the service,

the ONLY PERSON that I know of qualified to trade in this market IS Andrew Maguire.

Fifth :)

I was sitting in cash today, thinking maybe go long. Decided against it, and gold dropped big. Now I look at the charts and think gold has some more downside early next week. Anybody care to weigh in on the technicals? Looks to me like we might see another 20 to the downside mon/tue.

The gold chart is forming a swastika. Does that have a special meaning?

If the fundamentals and TA are pretty much a crap shoot right now, why take the chance on the paper market? If you want to gamble, give me your money and I'll flip a coin. Heads I keep your money. Tails I keep your money and I'll kick you in the balls for good measure. Pm me for the address to send cash to. Seriously people. Is this investing or a gambling addiction? Stack faster. RGD

Brink of insanity

The only way to trade this market is with decent hedges imho.

Too often my account has been completely screwed with a one way bet. Even with hedging you can still get it wrong if it is not managed.

Be careful in AArmy, my experience is that some prof. metals traders can be incredibly bullish and do not hedge as they only use 10% of their account on a position when using margin. Most amateurs (myself included) will often be over exposed and so can blow out.

Agree with TF. Only way to be sure is to buy phys & take delivery.

One things for sure...with the Chinese buying tons of phys and taking it off the table, these prices cannot last long...when will be see true paper/phys price divergence I wonder?
