Well, the doldrums look like they've wrapped up about a month earlier than expected.

Gold is just fantastic. It needs to hold these gains until the Comex close. As stated yesterday, a close above the previous intraday high of 1577.80 would be extremely if the chart wasn't already bullish enough!

Silver is scaring the living daylights out of the shorts today. They should be scared at this point. Silver has finally broken through the down-sloping trendline from May and appears poised to go tackle the all-important 39.50 level. It, too, needs to hang onto these gains into the close. I'd like to see it print a Comex close above 37.88, which is the intraday high of 6/10/11.

Crude, copper, the's all good as The Bernank has apparently decided that there was no point in further lies/deception regarding the eventual continuance of QE to infinity.

More later. TF

Conferees discussed new, legal measures being undertaken to regulate, control and eliminate internet websites and emailing messages. In other words, new laws and regulations are being developed to legally censor internet content and make opposition to global government a criminal offense. Look for censorship efforts to step up and take hold in the next six to twelve months.

The third most important topic for discussion involved efforts to restructure the world's economy by crashing the system in a new crisis that will end with a collapse of the current system, to be replaced by a new global system, with an electronic currency and an all-powerful central banking system. Plans will include a new electronic currency utilizing micro-chip implants to be placed in the hands or wrists of citizens of the world. Such plans are already in place in the USA, thanks to the new Obama Health Care law which mandates micro-chip implants for all Americans by March of 2013. The Obama plan argues that the micro-chip must hold all medical records and personal identification of the person being implanted. Similar measures are reportedly underway in Europe.

In bringing down the world's economy, the globalists publicly wring their hands and engage in futile steps to shore up the Euro currency and stave off national bankruptcies in Greece, Spain, Portugal and Ireland, but behind the scenes, this is exactly what the Illuminists desire because everything must collapse to make way for a New World Order and a global dictator. This aspect is little understood among the Bilderberg critics and reporters covering Bilderberg.

Gold in euros

Gold in euros has recently broken through its resistance at around 1,050 (give or take a few euros). It'll be interesting to see if this move takes it up to 1,200, the same way gold moved in dollars when it broke that one thousand barrier. Right now euro gold sits around 1,115 euros. If it should run to 1,200/euro, that would take us right up around $1,700/oz in the U.S. in a couple of months. I totally think this is possible by Aug./Sept.

Anyway, my 1st post here. Love the site & the forum & glad to be a part of it.

Careful here

IMO, everyone in both stocks and metals is getting too cocky today. As of this moment, Au's gain does not even equal, on a percentage basis, the dollar hit. Ditto the Dow and SP500. Real buying strength would be reflected in gains exceeding the dollar loss. Right now, we're all barely treading water for today on a value basis.

Somebody should really do a "Ben Bernanke: Gold is not money" remix video which goes viral on youtube! How much more can you shoot yourself in the foot...

How about the dumb-ass member

How about the dumb-ass member of Congress that said Bernanke had broken Paul's heart when he said gold is not money? What a complete douche that is utterly clueless. That rep obviously has no idea what gold is either. All fun and games if you are one of our elected officials, that's for sure.

I don't want to get overly

@ tpbeta

I don't want to get overly optimistic yet, but we're getting close to the $40 mark on silver that Turd mentioned recently, so there will be more buying opportunities once we get out of the summer dolldrums.. I'm also a bit disappointed that i didn't buy in a week or two ago, but i don't have enough capital to take too many risks right now so i'm just waiting patiently.

Looking like an ugly close at NYSE

Stocks hanging on by a thread after being up over 160 pts. Maybe the equity bulls have already blown their wads over the last two weeks and have nothing left? (the S&P touched 1258 on the last ride down). Imagine that...a QE3 green light = bad news = sell off in equities...uhh, whoops.

Also, not convinced the PM bulls knocked the cover off the ball today. I expect to see gold flash well below $1577 in the next 24 hrs. What happens after that will tell us a lot.

Jul 13, 2011 - 4:17pm

From last thread

"My hat is off for the technician I follow. He was bullish as of July 1st and said that the traditional summer doledrums would not play. Ben Davies and David Morgan were both wrong THIS time around."

Ben Davies and David Morgan are pretty much always wrong. I can remember Ben Davies in December calling for a short covering rallye in gold that would take it to 1800$ by the end of the year. Also in an interview he admitted that he missed out on last year's gains in silver completely.

David Morgan is just very conservative/close minded and can't imagine silver ever overtaking gold or gold going to 5 digit figures.

The brilliant minds are James Dines, Adrian Douglas, and to a lesser extent, Turk and Sprott. And of course a few others, you can never remember all of them. J.S. Kim also completely gets it, for example.

Ben Davies is quite brilliant. He called the last top in Silver and sold into it and hedged it as well, then he bought the 35 area. Not too bad. Morgan got out in the Silver mania of April somewhere near the high. Not bad.

They all win and lose on calls without exception imo.

Davies nailed the silver top at the end of April. Nailed it.

Silver will never be priced above gold. Stop being silly.

If you are taking day to day advice from people who push that fairly tale then you are bound for misery.
