Getting Out of Hand

Well, what are ya gonna do? I suppose you can be angry with me and everyone else because I certainly don't know of anyone who saw this coming. But the thing has taken on a life of its own now and there's really nothing anyone can do about it.

Would it be worth the time to sit here and bang out all of the reasons again why you own precious metal? Do I need to discuss the fundamentals again and all of the attendant rationale for doing what we do? Nah. Probably not. You've heard it so many times now I'm sure you could repeat everything in your sleep.

I could probably tell you about the short-term technicals and how oversold they are. Just a couple of days ago I mentioned that major selloffs typically don't begin from the oversold levels we were at then. And now look at things!

Maybe I should even waste a few moments going over the physical demand in London and how this will, inevitably, turn paper price around, lead to a stabilization and then a rebound. I could do that but why? You already know that.

In the end, this is nothing new. We saw this in May of 2011. We saw it in September of 2011 and again in December of last year. We saw it in February of this year, too. The metals rally. The Cartels sell all the way up by creating unlimited amounts of unbacked, paper shorts. Eventually, the rally runs out of steam. Some profit-taking ensues. The Cartels give things a shove and down she goes. Soon, the momo-chasing HFTs take over and really drive price down. Into this selling, The Cartels cover nearly all of the shorts they created on the way up until, presto/chango, we are right back to where we started.

Wash. Rinse. Repeat.

Only two things can possibly break this cycle:

  1. The toothless, hapless and corrupt commissioners of the CFTC will, one day, have to act upon the undeniable evidence before them. (Don't hold your breath.)
  2. Physical depletion continues until the market simply breaks. (And this is where we come in.)

Your job today is to relax. Yes, this manufactured event will likely continue but it will also end in the same way the other manufactured corrections have ended. Soon, there will be a very sharp, snap-back rally. It will emerge suddenly and catch traders by surprise. That rally will run out of steam and the shorts will attempt to re-assert themselves. Price will dive again but, ultimately, fail to make significant new lows. From there, a double or reverse H&S bottom will form and price will begin to recover.

In the meantime, head down to your local coin shop and add to your stack today (if they'll actually sell to you at these discounted prices). The only way we can be assured of victory is by taking action ourselves. The fraud that is the CFTC cannot be counted on to help us. Only we can help us.

Keep the faith. Persevere. Be strong and BTFD (again).

Looks like

a coffee and baileys morning. Much as I find this price movement...nauseating... I still believe. Just because liars and cheats have managed to grasp the upper position does not negate any of the reasons I stack and save. The TRUTH will inevitably bite them in the ass. Merry Christmas to all Turdites! Hug your loved ones, prep a bit, and have Baileys with your coffee!

How's this for market logic... could be a meme.

First post in a long time. 

First post in a long time. Turd noone is mad at you. I do question your sanity. When metals are up, "we" are winning. When metals are down "buy more".

Anyone who follows you for more than a year should come to the conclusion that either A: You are unreasonable or B: Your motives are different than advertised.

Personally I trust your motives, and find you to be completely unreasonable. You started out strong, but the daily circle jerks over price action in here aren't doing anyone a service.

Physical depletion until the

Physical depletion until the market breaks could be years and years away. We may never see it.

For those watching price, one of the toughest things about these year-end Cartel Cramming Sessions is that next year we will look at a move up to $34 as a big move, when in actuality it isn't, it only appears to be because of blatant manipulation.

So somewhere down the road we will get a short-squeeze from $30 to $34. Yaaay.
