Turd on the Brink of Insanity

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

lifted from burning platform

"If Spain goes down, German banks go down. If German banks go down, all of Europe goes down. If all of Europe goes down, China and the U.S. go down.

Now you know why bankers and politicians keep printing money trying to stop the inevitable.

Now back to Dancing With the Stars and American Idol."

it really is amazing that with all the evidence of a robust increase in gold exports and imports that the price remains steady. Almost makes you think it isn't a free market. I wonder if the people in Spain are really selling their gold, or have figured out a way to move it out of the country. And to Switzerland no less. If I had the misfortune to be living in Spain, I would sure be trying to move out any assets that weren't tied down.
I agree with you, and I strongly suspect that the people in Spain aren't doing much selling, but rather buying & moving. ... We have a few Spanish-Peasant friends that are doing EXACTLY the latter (as per your comment).


And I really am sorry we argued previously.

... I must be going more senile than usual, as I DON'T remember ever having an argument with you .... Could you kindly refresh my failing memory (by PM if you prefer) as I don't like to think I've upset someone & I'm not generally an "argumentative type", so I AM quite curious as to what subject we MAY have argued about.


I promise not to argue with you anymore ... unless you pay for another Five Minutes :-

You need to work on your reading comprehension. You were not "banned" from posting here. You were told to take your religious analysis of metals to the forums.

If you find that rule offensive, then you might want to find another place to post your commentary.

We have guidelines for the main threads to avoid flame wars. If you post in the forums you will have people who *want* to read your religious interpretations support you there. If you post them here, you are going to get people mad at you.

Please read our community guidelines, which does not cover everything but is a starting place.
