Summarizing Our Predicament

Tue, Apr 17, 2012 - 3:44pm

In the past 24 hours, two terrific pieces of "research" have been published by a couple of prominent Turdites. The presentations do such a fine job of summarizing the monetary part of our current predicament that I decided to create this entire new thread around them and begin a discussion.

Let's start with this brief presentation by Brent Johnson of Santiago Capital in San Francisco. It's concise and to the point, which makes it ideal for you to copy&paste the url into an email that you can send to every single family member or friend whom you are trying to "enlighten".

Hot on the heels of Brent's work comes this great new blog from Chris Martenson. Following along on a similar theme, Chris statistically makes the case you've heard me state around here for ages, namely that "tomorrow is NOT going to be like yesterday".

By the way, if you haven't yet, now would be a good time to listen to last week's podcast with Chris. It's about 25 minutes in length but well worth your time:

And now that you're done with these three assignments, anyone want to buy some gold?? TF

Thanks the day's offerings!

Total silver OI is back to within 1 contract of the high for the year set on 2/24. Hmmm.

Turd?

Nah, can't be turd 'cos Turd comes before first; guess that makes me Threeth (3th).

*Ahem* Turd, your first link is to this thread, not the one you intended.

Thanks Turd

I had to stop cleaning my guns long enough to thank you for all you do for us.

well I don't know about you boys

but I can't wait to feel the excitement of the blood letting of JP Morgue that will come (soon!) when they lose control of this bad boy. I was at my LCS today and some guy came in and bought 100 gold eagles in front of me. There is serious money being dropped into the physical market right now. What a bunch of idiots the C/C/C complex is, with MFGlobal fiasco they really have inevitably set off the chain of events that makes their COMEX darling price fix totally irrelevant. give it time, boys! meanwhile, stack mercury dimes.

Also, in other news, your friend Bernank Shmuelle Rockwell here, just picked up a nice electric furnace... so I will be buying 999+ silver shot, and pouring my own bars. Perhaps I will make some custom Turd bars!

All the best to my stackers.

Cordially the Bernank,

Silver OI @turd

Turd or anyone,

In your opinion:

Are we looking at retail shorts about to get squeezed? Or, is the EE looking to smack down some longs into the high 20's?
