Please listen to the FREE and timely audio.

Early Wednesday evening, I had the opportunity to visit again with my old friend, Dunagan Kaiser, of Reluctant Preppers. Given the timely nature of the discussion, I'm grateful to Dunagan for his quick turnaround in getting the video posted.

Over the course of this interview, Dunagan and I discuss the current market environment, recapping the moves made just today and we look ahead to the end of the week with levels to watch into the Friday close. We also answer several questions submitted by readers of Dunagan's great site: http://www.reluctantpreppers.com

Please be sure to watch when you have a few minutes.

Silver, second only to Gold.

Yahoo! What an unbelievable day.....only it is believable and we have been waiting a very, very long time.

Thank you Turd for your perseverance and providing this forum. No one I know has a grip on what Turdville daily covers for me. I don't feel alone.

Over on Zero Hedge the article; Re: Gold's Surge Is A Message

The article;

Gold's Surge Is A Message: Central Banks Are Out Of Control, Not Inflation


I have an adjustment to this conclusion. This actions in gold do not indicate anything about the state of the Central Banks (yet), but the movements in gold do indicate what those who are able to buy and move the market think about having a "Counter-party" in these markets.

I suggest that we're entering a phase of the market where >Trust< is being eroded in the other markets and legal agreements. The influence of the banks on "rules" and who those rules favor. The two tier justice systems we're witnessing are eroding faith.

I believe we are witnessing those people or entities that have been paying attention are making this stage of the move. Some of course are just purely investors, but there is a distinct and patient population that saw the game getting rigged for a hundred years.

Any discussion including the words deflation or inflation becomes inadequate with the communication of debasement and it's effects. The words are applied to too many situations that don't hold to the definitions.

"Savings" or "minimum wage" are useless without discussing debasement of the currencies. "Asset inflation" is just an indicator of the perception of protection of the base capital already obtained.

Avoiding another promise of something from someone else is an indicator and natural step to the perception of the dependability of the entire system to return what you give.

A bird in hand is worth two in the bush.
