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

There she is again. coming around to check us out. If i had a girl keep doing this to me i think i would need to nail her. So nail gold. buy gold. wear gold, eat gold, drink gold, lick gold, :) It's seducing us. It's playing head games with us. If gold could bend over it would do that right now and say this is what im doing to all of you. gold is being the nasty girl next store. keeps coming around so you can have some fun with it.

I'm going to buy my gold some flowers tonight

Combining the OI and the CoT

Combining the OI and the CoT structure and I think we are in the verge of short squeeze.

Thanks TF and all

I consider the vast majority of what I read to be bullshit. And I'm often not given to taking advice. Given these traits, it's remarkable for me when I reflect how much TF and all the people here have really impacted my actions.

There is no doubt. I've increased the pace of my stacking beyond what I would've been doing otherwise. I'm holding more oz right now than I would be without you all.

I am grateful.
