Very nice Pining

Profits for the little man? Oh no, we can't have that....

Margin Hikes

I'm no guru on any of this but I don't think they can raise margins on the SGE. Probably why the Chinese got their on market, no margins.

Positively a hoot!

Pining. You are one of the most creative in educating by humor. I really enjoy your stuff!

Hey, thanks folks!

Much appreciated! I was sitting for hours this morning looking at the charts, thinking about what TF said about all the new shorts added in the face of rising price yesterday, on top of the huge numbers already out there... yet we keep on going up up up, and this whole photoshop just kept jumping around in my head... I guess I needed to get it out.

Plus, I thought somebody needed to put this on record BEFORE it happens, just in case, AND to have something to throw in the face of the deniers if/when this occurs. Time stamp in the heading, y'all. Feel free to rub it in, if and when the time comes! Terry Duffy is the Pres of the CME, and I suspect he has a twitter account somewhere... if they hike margins to save the banks, it would be nice if he and others heard about it!

You think that after all the

You think that after all the manipulation. They hedges will open a trade desk at SGE instead.

@Pining, you are truly subliming

But oh my gosh, if this is true

There is not a whole lot that one can do

Except, I suppose, as SS121 would propose

We should just stack more gold and more silver

Of course, I would add, being somewhat obscure

While phyzz in my old age is not much of a cure

Buy more mining stocks, and watch them rock

Only silver and gold miners will truly deliver

Outstanding Beaver brother!

Magnificient

Monday May 2nd is a Chinese Holiday so a Sunday/Monday crash may be in the planning, especially if a margin hike is announced.

SS121 - - - - - - - - - HELP !!!

Help, please, SS121 ....... I have a dilemma. Surreptitiously have kept some paper (gold and silver miners, including JNUG) which have been doing uncommonly well in the last week. I know I should not hold these because one day the whole lot will collapse - BUT, my goodness, making lots of fiat at the moment - fiat with which I can add plenty to the stack - next to me on the banks (of the River Time).

So, the dilemma is when to get out of the paper and convert the fiat into further stack? Now? Next week? One month? The longer I leave it the more I will be able to add to the stack (piled up next to me on the banks). However, leave it too long and then all is lost.

Decisions, decisions.

@Pining Thanks for the

@Pining

Thanks for the chuckles.

And as you said, we will soon see if the margin rule gets brought into action by the CME members.

Fabulous Pining

You should be declared the Poet Laureate of Turdistan. heart

I've always found the best time to get out of something is either at the peak or the day before the collapse. cheekywink

Hope that was helpful. >_<

Great, Pining!

Once thought I could be a poet,

But, alas, had not the talent to show it. sad

Your prose has no equal.

You rhyme every time.

When might we expect a sequel? laugh

@ SS121

If you had a small sailing vessel, either single handed or with a small crew, would you ban the use of charts and the compass? Sort of just sail a favourable course according the way the wind was blowing?
Just asking!

Awesome Pining!

Brilliant as always :)
