Another Tradable Low Coming

Wed, Dec 6, 2017 - 11:33am

The divergence from the USDJPY correlation illuminates The Bullion Bank effort to smash price below the 200-day MA and flush out as many Spec longs as possible before the next rise. We saw this is May and in July and we are seeing it again now.

I have no doubt that what you are about to read is correct.

Since last Monday, when the USDJPY was forcibly rallied from below 111, the total change in this all-important HFT driver is 130 "pips"...from 110.90 to 112.20. After discovering and then closely following the yen-gold correlation for over three years, we've learned that a one point move in the USDJPY generally correlates to a $10-12 move in the price of Comex Digital Gold. The current 130 pip move should thus translate into roughly a $15 drop in Comex gold. Considering that price was $1298 last Monday, the current price should be around $1283. Instead, I have a last of $1267. Why the 2X difference?

It's simple. Over the past several days there has been a concerted and coordinated effort to rig price below the 200-day moving average. And why have The Banks taken this action? In order to engender the same type of Spec long liquidation seen in May and July of this year and displayed on the chart below from October 24:

The CoT survey of last Tuesday gave two alarms that allowed The Banks to trigger this current action.

  1. The Large Spec NET long position in Comex gold had reached 224,417 contracts. This was the highest level in 90 days.
  2. The Large Spec GROSS short position fell to just 62,967 contracts. This was the lowest seen since 9/6/16 and thus the second-lowest level seen since 2012.

Judging that the CoT was ripe to be flushed, The Banks took action, striking yesterday at 9:07 am EST. Note the 12,000 contract dump that finally shoved price well-below the 200-day. The selling action that took price another $10 lower in the three hours that followed was brought upon by Spec long liquidation upon seeing price fall below this critical technical indicator.

Today, price continues to meander lower, even though USDJPY is down, because of this continued Spec long liquidation. Just as we saw in May and just as we saw in July.

Given the false pretenses surrounding this current manipulation, I have no doubt that another bounce and rally is coming...in both Comex Gold and Comex Silver.

Let's start with Comex Gold. Note that the May and July lows came with an RSI of near 30 and price about below the 200-day. A similar low next week would peg price near 40.

Personally, I have a hard time believing that price will fall that far before bouncing but, if it does, there's a another good reason to expect a floor there...the 200-week moving average. On three occasions earlier this year, price has fallen to this key long-term indicator and on all three occasions, price quickly reversed.

In Comex Digital Silver, the picture is just as clear. There can be no doubt that the Banks have aggressively capped CDS at it's own 200-week moving average on every attempt to move higher over the past 18 months. As you can see below, this is clearly NOT random, free, fair and natural price action:

However, another look at the same weekly chart reveals the resilience that CDS has shown every time it reached down toward . Additionally, check the massive, long-term reverse head-and-shoulder pattern that is forming:

So, quite obviously, there is another tradable low coming. Will it lead to the final breakout move toward $1400 and $22? Maybe. However, this next low is coming and why wouldn't it? Consider just this brief list that will impact the demand for gold exposure in 2018:

  • The geopolitical risk of war with North Korea, war in the Middle East and cold war with Russia.
  • The inverting US yield curve leading to undeniable recession.
  • Fed promises of more QE and even negative rates in the next slowdown.
  • Political risk in the US as calls grow for impeachment and the pending 2018 elections.
  • Continued de-dollarization in China, Russia, the rest of the BRICS and the Middle East.
  • US government shutdown and political discord

Given all of the uncertainty that lies ahead for 2018, prices for Comex Digital Metal are headed higher not lower. Prepare now for your next tradable opportunity in both Comex metals and the mining shares.

While Huffpost isn't my usual fare, this is pretty important. Has to do with represtentation of agents and broker, and the FIRNA demon of arbitration.

Nicehash Hack

Don't forget that that the NSA and GCHQ (in the UK) monitor and record all online activity. Encryption is not secure, it only creates a barrier to those who don't have root access to a system.

Hacking Bitcoin exchanges is not an issue, should TPTB wish to collapse it (I personally believe they invented it), and I suggest this will happen before the collapse of the dollar.

Having conditioned us to become familiar with cryptocurrencies we will then be forced to accept a gov't-controlled cryptocurrency as the new world-currency.

That's what their aim is. End of cash, end of all anonymity. Total control by a few.

Gold and silver will skyrocket for a short period of time during the transition.

"A Conspiracy History of the World"

I've never heard of Andy Thomas before, but this is a great lecture I stumbled across that he gave about conspiracy theories in 2013. There's some things here that even Bollocks wasn't aware of - maybe many Turdites too.

Andy links them together with historical facts quite brilliantly, in my opinion. A long one - 1hr 40mins in total - but the whole lecture needs to be viewed to see how it unfolds.

Something to send anyone who still has any doubts that governments are not looking after us and would never attack their own people, and that there isn't a single group behind it all, pulling all the strings.

The war on gold continues...

"We mentioned in Part 1 that there is a clue in the Financial Times article that demonstrates the statists’ fear that they cannot prevent broad scale interest in gold from developing among the people. The FT article argued that due to dealer commissions, physical gold is more expensive than its electronic counterpart. It also stated that physical coin dealers are dangerous because they are “exploitative” and “shady.” The conclusion the author reached for his dear readers to follow was this: “More gold will be traded electronically,” because if one is going to buy gold, electronic products are the better deal.

This is exactly what the increasingly concerned Deep Statists are trying to steer people into doing: buying electronic, not physical gold. They appear to realize that they might not be able to control the gold price for much longer, and that if the price gets away from them, the Cryptocurrency Effect will be activated in gold. If that happens, a price Vesuvius lies ahead. The volcano, they cannot stop. All they can do is misdirect the people’s money into their phony electronic gold products, to sterilize and control those funds. Then, when the price does explode, they will force customers to accept involuntary cash settlements and close out the electronic acounts. The customers will get fiat currency at the precise time when it is plunging in value, and the statists will keep any physical gold they might have purchased with customers’ funds.

As Sun Tzu said, in war, you must know the enemy and yourself if you intend to win. We hope that our article has helped readers know the enemy a bit better. The next task is to know yourself; to ask yourself, “Given what I know, what should I do?” In our opinion, and this is just our personal point of view, not an investment recommendation, which we are not licensed to provide, the fact that the Deep State elitists are stopping at nothing to discourage you from buying physical gold is the precise reason why you should buy it. And if this article has resonated with you, then you probably also believe, as we do, that the time to financially prepare yourself is getting short. The current intensity of price maneuvering and manipulation in a broad variety of markets implies that the center is losing hold, and that something wicked this way comes."

What's to stop nice hash saying they were hacked after they had cleaned out the Bitcoin themselves? I thought this stuff was " unhackable"
