Another Parallel

Tue, Oct 23, 2012 - 10:40am

Continuing with the current theme, here's another reprint for you. Party like it's 2011!!

Just six, short days after calling "Turd's Bottom" and issuing a guarantee, ( all looked lost. It was January 27, 2011. Prices had peaked three weeks earlier in the post-QE2 euphoria and now nearly every "maven" was dumbfounded by the continuing weakness. Sound familiar?

So, for today, I invite everyone to go back to "The Watchtower" and review this post:

You'll find all sorts of parallels to today...even references to the sudden appearance of a shadowy "insider" who had begun posting cryptic messages on the Yahoo Finance boards.

Anyway, keep the faith and hang in there. This, too, shall pass.

Fritz... I may just contact SLW for kicks and giggles... it can't hurt.

Gold Bug... you are correct. I also have questions about Depreciation and Amortization. The mining companies deduct these as a cost... but it seems as if it adds to their Cash Flow.

see... I have a bunch of questions...

Question on stacking...

Is this what you guys mean when you talk about stacking? My stack of titanium bars are getting a little wobbly. How high do you go before you start another stack? Those Scottsdale stackers help a little for those who are unbalanced, or balance challenged. Advice welcomed. :)

Another Parallel

You got that right. Look at NY Crimex, another down gap. that 4 of em, and Silver always closes them thar gaps, never have I seen it like this, 4 gaps from 33.60 to 31.60. When silver bounces off the low, and its zeroing in on 31, I dont think its gonna be some wall of worry stair step up back up, more like a freakin MOON SHOT up up and away and blow through 35 to 37.50 ish .... for a 31-37 moon shot, like over night ... but actually on the CRIMEX, in plan view, in open day light. Election coming, the moon shot coming, the stars align ???

Now read this

For fun, I'll start you with the concluding paragraph:

"And there you have it: a perfectly counterparty free system, in which a transaction is done, and no traces are left behind. More importantly, this is the blueprint for the future, as more and more countries evade the subjugation of the petrodollar regime so ubiquitous for the past century, and which is slowly but surely being shifted to benefit those countries who are not insolvent, and who actually produce things needed by the rest of the world."
