The Last, Desperate Acts

The foolish, self-destructive Bullion Banking Cartel continues to crush and manipulate the price of paper metal. Their arrogance will be their undoing.

First things first. As you all know by now, paper price was crushed last night/earlier today. $23 was taken out in under a minute. This was nothing but regular, Cartel price manipulation where bids are pulled coincident to sell orders being placed. As usual, they got away with it. This time, however, we were watching and two, separate Turdites caught them in the act. Here is a C&P of an email I received last evening at 10:50 EDT, 30 minutes after the "event".

Turd,
I was watching gold sell off tonight, wondering how low it would go. Then I saw the spike down. On my depth of market order entry application (NinjaTrader), there was absolutely no bids or ask in the system. So I placed a limit order quickly at 1567. There was a long pause, but then my screens came back to life and suddenly the price slipped all the way down to 1556. I was pissed because I thought I was filled at 1567, but my long of 6 /GC contracts was filled at the absolute bottom 1556.4.
This almost conclusively proves to me that liquidity (bids) was purposely removed. How did I get filled at the absolute bottom?
Regardless to the inner workings of the access market, somebody dumped 1750 contracts in a market order, all at once. Same bullshit as always but this time I am getting even with these bastards.
I can prove that my order was filled at 1556.4 if you are interested.

Corroborating this was a second email I received a couple of hours later:

Hello Turd, I too was trading tonight when the bomb was dropped. I usually find the late evening hours from 8pm ET to around 11pm not too bad for trading,.....the volume usually is light and trading slow.........but tonight felt different.......I watch the Euro and the Yen and the Yen was catching some bids and moving on up........I am a one contract trader and just trade for a few dollars either way........I stopped myself out of a long at 1580.20 in the Aug gold and walked away from the computer.....when I came back a few minutes later I could not believe what I saw.......the volume for those 2 minutes if I remember was around 1800 contracts..........it usually won't trade that amount in 6 hours at night........they were gunning for the lows on the chart around 1579 and took them out with a vengeance..........this is not hedge funds trading in the middle of the night nor the small speculator......this was a coordinated massacre and the collateral damage was any long specs whose stops slipped by 5 or 10 dollars at least...........after the initial rebound rally, the market was so thin and quiet for the next 35 or 45 minutes.....most were shellshocked, if not broke, and there were no players left........I am done ranting..........and I think I will stick to trading the ES futures from here out..........and to those knuckleheads who say there is no manipulation in the metals markets, I say...........keep their heads in the sand......that way we won't hear as well what they are saying.

In the end, it's as if the entire bid/ask system was momentarily shut off. Into that void, a massive order was dumped for maximum effect and damage. A momentary, deliberate "flash crash" designed to game and flush any unsuspecting buy stops. It's deliberate, overt manipulation but it is sadly, for now, the way the game is played.

That game is changing but the blind arrogance of The Cartels keeps them from seeing it. Once again today, massive physical demand appeared in London. The Cartels selfishly crush paper price in order to game and manipulate the speculative managed money. They squeezed the shorts a week ago. They crushed the longs yesterday. The Masters of Disaster think they are playing this game and avoiding long-term consequences. As stated above, their arrogance will be their undoing.

Earlier this week, I wrote about the coming shift in the global trade settlement structure. If you haven't read this yet, please do so now ( https://www.tfmetalsreport.com/blog/3866/dot-connecting). The metal that is flowing out of London toward points East will be the basis of this new system. All metal used to back this new system is effectively removed from the global stage. As this transpires, physical metal will become increasingly scarce. Without physical metal to back the highly leveraged paper, the entire LBMA will collapse and, with it, The Comex. The LBMA and Comex collapsing will directly effect the solvency of the Bullion Banks and a new global paradigm will emerge.

Again, your only personal financial protection from this historic chain of events is the purchase and acquisition of physical precious metal, preferably gold but silver, too. (Though likely included within the new trade settlement structure, I expect silver to soar due to its own set of fundamentals.)

Please, I urge you to immediately consider whether or not you own enough physical metal.

Think.

Look around.

Trust your instincts.

Act.

Price of gold on D-day?

Turd,

Always wondered what the price of gold would be the moment the Comex collapses. Does paper go to zero (but w/o the Comex, where/how is the paper price of gold determined?).

Monster Box

I just ordered me a Silver Eagle Monster Box and couldn’t be happier about the purchase. I buy as much as I can to help the cause, and I defiantly put my money where my mouth is today. I hope everybody else in Turd’s Town is buying silver and gold at these discounted prices!!! BTW The Bernank can go straight to hell

Makes Me Want to Drink

Thanks, Turd.

I gotta say - this ongoing illogical (from our perspective) and seemingly endless manipulation is not doing me any good. I'm trying to taper off using any alcohol and all this does, is make me want to consume more.

Guess I need to add several cases of something-or-other to the prepping list.

Ranting Andy is 100% in

and so am I including mining stocks, although most have been raided over the years. Sprott Global will give a free evaluation of portfolio, as Rick Rule says, better to dump the .15 stock (down 85%) and put it in something that will do potentially better once mining consolidation begins. The companies in need of capital investment will sink since there is no financing available. Andy Hoffman warns that most of the sector is fatal due to short raids and future expropriation by countries.

Turd, this is not arrogance,

Turd, this is not arrogance, this is all part of the can kicking process. I have to believe TPTB can see now that their system is crumbling. They have no choice but to continue manipulating the paper markets to pretend like the system is not already over the cliff and falling. Keep the paper price low and it masks the enormous physical demand coming out of the east. https://fofoa.blogspot.com/2012/06/gld-talk-continued.html

Thanks Turd, let the ee fools do what they want as the noose tightens around their necks, they are all in a situation that will lead to their down fall! As a long time stacker I have learned to listen to my instincts and not to MSM, seems they are all in denial at this point! The main thing to remember is to get out of debt as fast as you can and to invest in HARD assets. It's a sure way to sleep good at night! Day to Day price swings are really unimportant,remember how long it took to get from $250 to $1500 in gold!
