Well, that all went to shit, didn't it?

Just goes to show ya, The Turd really isn't a soothsayer, a psychic or a witch. The Turd is just a regular dude, trying to do his best to educate and prepare the masses.

For now, all I know is this:

As hard as it is to believe, the metals are poised for a tremendous 2013. Currently, the algos are in charge and they are driving the paper price lower and lower, regardless of the fundamentals. The Bullion Banks openly manipulate price while the inept and corrupted CFTC looks the other way. All the while, Western physical metal is being rapidly depleted and moved into the vaults of dollar-creditor nations such as Russia, China and India.

One day soon, this will all explode in spectacular fashion and the current global financial system, based upon dollar hegemony, will be radically altered. Until then, trade at your own risk. Even I, The Great and Powerful Turd, allowed myself to be sucked back into the casino this one, last time. Turd DumDum...fool me 5 or six times, shame on me!

I'll have a new podcast for you this afternoon so please check back later today or over the weekend. I'll try to have a new, full post tomorrow morning, too. (I'd have one now but I can't print charts. I blew out all my ink trying to print off the Daily Racing Form for the Breeder's Cup. I may be an idiot but at least I have my priorities straight.)

Have a fun day and please utilize this paper nonsense to add to your physical stack.

If this was a boxing

I was just getting ready to pack it in for the weekend and go play. Now I've got to drag everything back out and place an order. Who was it that asked "May I have some more, please." Just keep kicking my ass and I'll keep buying, at least until the well runs dry.

Nov 2, 2012 - 11:10am

just put my towel down here...

Hat tip me if you got the joke.

`Soon' seems to be as powerful a word as `if'.

I still can't get why HEH is done and dusted, the rock rolling down the hill with nothing to stop it and no market participants except Turd can see it?

Surely any publicity directed at the unknowing participants about it will hasten the process?

Nov 2, 2012 - 11:11am

That's ok Turd

That's ok Turd, you don't have feel guilty or responsible for this manipulate markets. We understand all this process will go on no without pain. Folks, is here where we need see things in perspective, long term and always with reserve cash. Let the party continue!

I feels like we are here



Sour Grapes

OK, I admit it. Maybe I'm just bent out of shape because I gave you 1320 and 26.50 a week in advance and, for about 18 hours, I looked like frickin Nostradamus. Instead, I'm Nostradumbass.
I believe we have reached a rather interesting point. Everyone who knows anything about precious metal trading (myself excluded) from Harvey to Ted to Jim to Dan to Rob to Eric seems utterly confounded by the action in and out of the pits. Its almost surreal. Harvey tonight begged people to get out of paper metal, buy physical and look the other way. Ted Butler seems to have his head spinning so fast he doesn't know which way is up. Look at this freaking chart, for the love of pete:
I wish I had something witty or insightful to say but, the truth is, I'm out of ideas. I'm not just going to make something up and grasp at straws just to make you believe I have an answer for everything. I don't and I really don't now. As crazy as it sounds, the only semi-plausible explanation lies with those crazy silvergoldsilver bears and/or Lady Gaga (or whatever that email lady's name is).

The dollar is in the shitcan.
The Fed is forced to print infinite amounts of money to continue the ponzi.
The U.S. economy continues to sputter if only because of the ongoing, massive cash infusions supplied through the Treasury by the Federal Reserve.
The EU is an economic basketcase as many individual states are bankrupt and their debts are carried by the other, healthier states.
Yet gold and silver are being indiscriminately
sold. Crude, too. And copper.

Not to worry Turd.

What's that saying,, If you cant beat them, don't join them?

disgusting action.

Nov 2, 2012 - 11:13am

Thanks Turd - No Worries

This nonsense doesn't change anything. I was kinda hoping the computers that run those algos would get flooded in Sandy. Guess not.

Nov 2, 2012 - 11:17am

I'm gonna go buy today.

One gold maple...just to say F-you to those that cheat. I know we're right, and the system is wrong. FTSBTSFY!

On another tack, from reading Green Lantern yesterday, I also plan do do a bit of prepping. Got my sights set on a pair of insulated coveralls. It's cold up here.

Peace out. Keep the faith!
