@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

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.

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

Hope that was helpful. >_<
