Wrapping UP

204
Wed, Jul 20, 2011 - 3:29pm

Before we wrap up today, let's put the finishing touches on yesterday.

The chart below was posted in the comments last night. It pretty much tells you all you need to know about the Cartel's raid in silver yesterday. Overwhelming evidence such as this can only lead you to two conclusions about those that deny the existence of The Evil Empire and their detrimental effects/actions:

1) They are hopelessly naive and uninformed and therefore have no credibility. Frankly, these people should refrain from commenting on the PMs altogether and should stick to something about which they have some expertise.

OR

2) They are simply a paid agent of disinformation. Get away from these people. Fast.

Whether the intention was simply to trim price or start a cascade like early May, it doesn't matter. Open interest in silver is currently 25% less than it was in late April. Once the waterfall starts, there simply are not enough weak-handed longs around to promulgate the decline. At this stage of the nascent rally/recovery from May-June, The Cartel can only hope to occasionally frighten. The likelihood that they can start a massive C/C/C (Cartel/Comex/CME) long liquidation similar to May is minimal.

And don't forget to make a mental note of the timing of the raid yesterday. By delaying until after the Comex close, not only did The Cartel make their transactions in the thinly-traded Globex, thus having greater effect, they also were able to place 50,000 new shorts that won't show up on this week's CoT report! They've now got until next Tuesday to cover their tracks. Definitely all part of their devious master plan.

OK, enough of that. Onto today. Very nice FUBMs have left us with a very clear technical picture. The charts below are self-explanatory. Yes, we could drop again as Blythe and The Monkeys are certainly capable of anything but I don't think we will. I think, instead, we'll be back above 1600 and 40 before the close on Friday.

Below is a chart I lifted from Trader Dan. It's such a great chart that you should print it and keep it as a roadmap for the move until year end. (By the way, Dan still posts on his blog from time to time so you should be sure to check it daily.)

I've mentioned repeatedly that strength in crude and copper will continue to reinforce the bid in the PM pits and nothing has changed in that regard. Despite yesterday's nonsense, ole DrC continues to impress and crude seems extremely resilient, much to the collective chagrin of The O'bottom Regime.

Lastly, I found this last night through another site but I don't remember which one. I don't know who this guy is and, frankly, I don't trust anyone from Colorado. However, Harvey likes to cite his work and this missive is certainly compelling.

What To Look For In Advance Of The Big Collapse
I'm a bit short on time today and a commenter asked my views in the comment section about what "signs" in the market to look for in order to try and anticipate a systemic/dollar collapse in this country. He was referencing a view by "Another," an anonymous individual who started writing views on the global financial system back in the late 1990's. This person and a "friend of Another" were mapping out the demise of fiat currencies and the eventual collapse of the global financial system long before most of us even knew how to spell "gold" and "banking cartel." Anyway, you can read the inquiry comment in the comment section of yesterday's post and I kind of like what I wrote in the comment section in response, so I polished up that response and decided to post it:


I'm not sure if there will be definitive signs that will tell those watching for them that "it's over." Right now everything is in a slow-motion state of collapse dating back to probably the 1970's "oil crisis," but really to the closing of the gold window. Since then, starting with the junk bonds/S&L crisis, we've have successive bubbles and blow-ups, each one getting bigger and more vicious - each one a catalyst to transfer massive wealth from the middle class to the political and business elite.

I truly believe Clinton could have turned things around after the Long Term Capital collapse, but Rubin and the other puppet-master bankers/oil barons/defense industry magnates already had their hooks too deep into the Oval Office. Ironically, and I'm not the only one out "there" to remark on this, it was during the populist Clinton's Presidency that the extreme and blatant corruption we see on Wall Street and DC seems to have accelerated. Hell, Clinton himself barely had a pot to piss in when he entered the White House and now he's worth $100's of millions. I don't recall that ever happening to Harry Truman...You think that Clinton "self-made" that wealth? LOL

In terms of predicting "THE Event," I dunno. How many really wealthy people in Germany with billions in marks in the bank on November 13, 1923 thought they would wake up on November 14 to see their paper wealth literally incinerated? Surely "insiders" were looking for signs that the mark would collapse. The revaluation was 1 billion to 1. On November 13, 1923 if you had a billion marks in the bank when you went to bed, the next day when you woke up you had 1. Although the process of collapse is accelerating, the actual "Event" historically seems to happen all at once. And you have to be prepared a long time in advance in order to set up your plan of protection and you have to be prepared for the insanity to drag on a lot longer than you truly believe that it can.

I think this situation has more time to play out and I've stopped putting out timeframe predictions. For sure our country won't last as it is until 2020, probably not even 2015. But then again, I thought in 2002 that where we are now is where would be by 2006/7. They have run out of assets to bubble up, so now I think you'll eventually see wealth confiscation via retirement fund confiscations in the form of exchanges for "Government guaranteed" Treasury annuities. In fact, I said back in 2002 that our system would not collapse until the ruling elite (bankers/politicos) had swept every last crumb of middle class wealth off of the table. That "last crumb" of wealth most people have left is their retirement assets. We will also see the Government implement stronger totalitarian control over the citizens (that's happening already).

Think I'm nuts? The concept of the Government taking over the retirement fund system has already been discussed in Congress, including an academic presentation to Congress back 2008. They'll need those assets to pay for the Government spending and they'll issue Treasury bonds in exchange. Most States have already done that with State employee pension plans and the Federal Government has already done that with the funds in the Social Security Trust and they started doing that a few weeks ago with the Federal pension assets (to the tune of a couple hundred billion). Expect that gameplan to eventually expand into all retirement asset plans public and private. As they lose control of the ability of the global financial system to finance the Government and lose control of the value of the dollar and the value of precious metals, the Government will impose its political will more forcefully on the citizens. The ability to make all of this happen has already been legislated via the Patriot Acts (1 and 2), the Homeland Security Act and the Detainee Bill.

The only way to avoid this is to leave the country, which people are doing in record numbers every year. Owning gold and silver will help a lot if you stay here, because you want to move as much as you can out of paper assets and out of "the system" and into gold and silver and out of the Government's ever-expanding "reach." We could well see the black market scenario to which Another refers because once the dollar/system actually collapses, there won't be much gold/silver for sale, as those who don't have it but have goods to offer will only accept gold/silver in exchange and those who do own it will hold onto it to trade for things they need. In the best-case scenario after the collapse, a new system of gold/silver-backed currency will quickly fill in the "vacuum" left by the collapse and that will help restore a more "normalized" system of commerce. The worst case scenario? Read "The Road" by Cormac McCarthy.

Before that, I bet we see at least $10k gold and $500 silver..."


That's likely it for today. Keep the faith. We are winning! TF

Maybe 50K contracts didn't roll that fast, I really don't know. It makes little difference to me. It is still clear manipulation. No way this is a "seller for profit" or "legitimate hedging". Ridiculous, impossible, and totally preposterous.

Well, my buddy Mish dismissed me on this topic as he always does. I'm sure his clients and readers will be very happy to miss out entirely on the silver run that is coming (and already has come). He recently said silver would go into the low $20's. 

ewc58 · Jul 20, 2011 - 6:58pm

I'm sure Turd was just teeing off and Colorado happened to be on the green :-0) And some Turdites went along for the ride as well... If not, well, y'all DO have medical marijuana. That should help you deal with this unprovoked aggression (too bad there's not a Rasta smiley, he'd go here)

I love CO, very lucky to have driven all over it in the dozen times I've visited. My wife has 2 brothers and a sister there. In the summer months (only time the snow clears enough) the drive to the top of Mt. Evans is a mindblower, especially for flatlanders like me.

I can also vouch for Dave from Denver, been reading him for years on Bill Murphy's Le Metropole Cafe and at his website: https://truthingold.blogspot.com/

Dr G margaritatime · Jul 20, 2011 - 6:59pm

Boo-hoo if you really take *that* seriously the broad and generalized comments of an anonymous blog poster regarding your state. I suppose that means Turd doesn't know anything about gold or silver or TA. Go ahead, throw the baby out with the bath water. I mean it, please do.

Here's an idea: give more weight to the blog that is most often correct and contains the greatest amount of like-minded individuals.

I'm also shocked that ANYBODY gives a rat's ass who likes or dislikes Colorado or the people there. You specific people are a hoot (read: annoying). I hate the state of California. Also New York. I've lived in both. I don't trust anybody from there. It's a broad brush, but you get the idea.

I come here to get away from the political correctness and mainstream media drivel that is bashed down our throats each day. I don't need to hear somebody whining because somebody made fun of your state or called your mom fat or made fun of the car you drive.

Can we discuss the metals now and take this "proud of my crappy state" stuff to another forum? Thanks.

Bay of Pigs · Jul 20, 2011 - 7:07pm

I followed him for years. He was the very first credible voice I heard calling the real estate bubble. Alas, he has some other viewpoints that place him in the "extreme" camp. He is idealisitic, and lacks pragmatism. While some of what he has to say is brilliant, and absolutely correct, he misses the mark on so much else because his idealism blinds him to the truth. He has thus diminished the value of his blog accordingly.

Remember, Mish got the deflation call wrong. His fundamental economics position was sound, being that he is from the Austrian school, but he totally underestimated the EE and their power. What we are seeing now is unprecedented in mankind's short time here on Earth. The lessons of today will be talked about for generations. Life will be vastly different in a post economic collapse.

Black Swan used to post in the comments, and what he said made tons of sense. Then one day, there was a tiff between him and Mish, and Black Swan said sayonara. That was very unfortunate. I really liked reading all of Black Swan's posts. I stopped reading the comments after that, and I basically only check out the headings on Mish now. I don't comment there anymore, as I feel it is not time well spent.

If you say hi to Mish, tell him he had a good thing, but ruined it when he went off on Black Swan.

Irene · Jul 20, 2011 - 7:09pm

I live in NYC and am coming to hate it. Bash away, Turd. P.S. This heat wave is making everything go just nuts! Last night, hubbie and I went out at 2am to catch a breath of fresh air and found ourselves entertained by a hopping rat. Seriously, the damn rat was hopping just like a bunny rabbit. I took it as a sign from the universe that pm's were gonna hop up today. And see, they did. FUBM.

FogHorn LegHorn · Jul 20, 2011 - 7:14pm

I can't presume to speak for TF, but the Colorado dig, if I'm not mistaken, is a tongue in cheek retort, to a friendly past yogurt disparagement by a certain good friend of TFs. TF finish Your supper quick!! Yikes angry mountain people! Fun fact: low oxygen thin high altitude air gives pitch fork brandishing mountain folks a distinct advantage in any kind a foot race.Lungs like lions I hear.:)

Jeez. One little throwaway line about Coloradoans and all the Ralphies out there get their panties in a bunch.

Anyone who has been around here for a while knows that The Turd is a big football fan, particularly college football.

The Turd spent some of his formative years in Nebraska where trips to the "Centennial State" often meant dealing with slashed tires and "keyed" cars. It's not my favorite place nor will it ever be. Let's just leave it at that.

scone · Jul 20, 2011 - 7:19pm

Actually, "The State" --in any way, shape or form-- IS the problem, and to be proud or parochial about the very source of your own oppression is repulsive on its face. 

CaptainOverkill · Jul 20, 2011 - 7:23pm

Hi Turd,

You can probably trust this guy. I stumbled across his blog in 2009 and he was the first real "gold blogger" I followed off Zero Hedge. He has been saying all the right things for two years, and occasionally has very interesting posts like the one you copied and pasted here. It was also through him that I discovered Jesse's Cafe Americain, another great PM blog.

Also good to see that we're above 1600/40 again mark again already. So much for the big, bad Tuesday raid. Clearly there is an updraft in the market that cannot be ignored so easily. I do not think they will be able to successfully drive the price down for the medium term again unless Congress reaches some sort of acceptable solution to the debt ceiling problem, and how likely is that? And if the US actually gets downgraded, I think metals are going to just massively explode to the upside. $1700 and up! yes

TheGoodDoctor · Jul 20, 2011 - 7:25pm

Ok the damned heat can go away any day now. Jeez. It's like I can't stay hydrated or get cold even with the dang AC on. Oh yeah. Go gold! Go silver! Or how about even a Silver Bitchez! (that is what they do over at ZH. LOL.) smiley

kenklave · Jul 20, 2011 - 7:28pm

Colorado lovers need to calm down. It's all in fun. Besides everyone knows that Colorado is far from the worst state in the nation. That designation belongs to Kansas...followed closely by Maryland.

¤ · Jul 20, 2011 - 7:29pm

The Colorado thing is actually pretty funny, if your not from Colorado.

He could have said Bulgaria and I would have chuckled.

Turd being Turd. I love it. yes

Don't go pelting me with junk but I don't think he's dissing any loyal Turdite's. 

I'm from NY, so you can junk away at The Empire State. The Govt. deserves it.

worse than Kansas is the state of cognitive dissonance

I went to NYC once and was blown away with it all, the subway, Main Street, all looked completely insane. If you live there (Sorry Irene) this is just everyday life.

Stopped at a cafe for breakfast while on the road and they had meat in the salsa for my vegetarian omelet. WTF

an amusing fantasy from jim willie...

"...Apple to initiate a hostile takeover of Goldman Sachs. Their $76 billion in the cash war chest will gradually be devoted to secretive arrangements to procure major tranches of GS stock using whatever lies, coercion, and subterfuge are necessary. The stated plan is to acquire GSax, then liquidate it in the national interest. The expected bustup asset value is forecasted to produce a 15% profit over acquisition value. To sweeten the deal, shareholders for the tarnished tainted investment bank will be offered an iPhone for each GS share. The hitch in the project is limiting future fraud liabilities, a likely outcome since victims would like to see the once venerable GSax but now syndicate fortress completely liquidated. Just kidding, not serious, but a wonderful pipedream toward national recovery from alleged bank fraud, legislative bribery, narcotics money laundering, financial market undermine, front running of USGovt policy, and basic sedition...."

gata love it!

Hi All:

I like people from Colorado I like the west, even though I live in the south. I was born and raised in the west--dont know quite why I left. I also like turd, all the folks on the threads, gold , silver, platinum and other stuff. Pizza , beer, cats , dogs and my family. I also think Turd was kidding about Colorado we all seem to take things too literal anymore. Peace to all of you.

Warmest Regards,

Rhome123

In addition to retirement accounts likely being raided, there is also the issue of home ownership. Congress has been talking about tinkering with the mortgage deduction in order to raise revenue. If that deduction is removed, this combined with cratering home values will certainly discourage home ownership in a big way. What's wrong with that? Well, it's not too hard for me to envision a future where a large share of rental properties will be owned by corporate landlords, and the renters will be at their mercy.

Speaking for myself only, no offense taken. However I suspect that there may be an interesting story behind that Colorado remark. Care to elaborate?

Edit: That's it? College football games? Hell, CU isn't even in Colorado, it's in the People's Republic of Boulder.

Hey everybody distracting us with this CO debate:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B65mtE2TN1w

As for Turd, I find your football explanation to be "a likely story" and rather suspect there is a woman involed....what was her name???

Now, on to PMs: After taking a thrashing yesterday on my SLV calls and puts, and having unloaded most of my puts yesterday, today I got a chance (thanks to atlee and Turd) to get some of it back. I finished the day with the following ratios: calls 42%, puts 21%, cash 28%, other 9%. I added to my puts at the end of the day because I was almost naked long calls after yesterday's action. 

As of right now, I have no clue what is going to happen tomorrow but suspect it will pivot around the next Greek bailout, timed in the afternoon to allow for another EE raid. I also wouldn't be suprised by a FUBM in the am. For Friday, I'm still expecting carnage on the PMs in a smackdown as the modified Senate debt bill passes and Obama-rama-lama-ding-dong reluctantly agrees to sign it, while scoring as many political points as possible and wrecking the PMs like he did yesterday. 

To me, 2 most important factors are: 1) PM Expiry on Tues - prices must come down and 2) the 2 year auction on Tues, followed by 5 and 7 on Wed and Thu. Now, who the hell is going to buy this crap (POMO has ended) unless the dollar is strong??? Strong dollar usually means weak PMs. If a debt deal isn't worked out, PMs are soaring, and eurozone is still dicking around, think about what that would do to the 2, 5, and 7 auctions!

It's HAARP brother. I can see the rays. Hunker Down!

TheGoodDoctor · Jul 20, 2011 - 8:00pm

@maravich44 No doubt. Anthem of the Sun! cheeky I took a cold shower. That helped.

PS Did you see the Ventura show on HAARP? That was pretty interesting. He's on for a season 3 I heard on Alex Jones on Monday though he won't be traveling due to his lawsuit against the TSA. Oliver Stone's kid is going to be on the show this year. Jesse will remain static in some "unknown location" (LOL) and the other folks will go out and return reports. Not too big of a change but it sure makes for interesting TV watching.

They are going to war before they are allowed to vote, drink or smoke. Hopefully They will be able to use their skills to make this country great again and get rid of the (you name it). Great site TF. Thanks

Fellow Wisconsinite! I hear ya about the heat wave. Mercy already! I give up!

Makes me want to move to, umm....Colorado!

In reading the Turdmeister I wonder why any of you are still playing the paper game!?!

If the collapse is to be sudden and unheralded then why play paper at all? Do you plan to pull out just in time and go to physical? Good luck with that timing thingy.

I'd watch the POSX for warning.

I'm still stuck with some 401K fundage but buy PHYS with it, assuming some paper assets will remain strong even after the fall.

TBTF will be 'The Bastards That Fried' in that special spot in hell for reserved for rapists and bankers.

maravich44 TheGoodDoctor · Jul 20, 2011 - 8:13pm

Yes I watched all of them, the one on CIA mind control defenitely caught my attention, especially because of how long that it has been happening. (The RFK segment was chilling) Anyway "Let it Grow" might be a good diversion. Best to you.

Shill · Jul 20, 2011 - 8:19pm

I too increased my GDX options, today was a very good start.

Now I sit and wait.

Hey Turd!

Wyoming Cowboys football season ticket holder here. The Pokes play the Cornhuskers this season in Laramie on September 24th. I'd buy you a couple of tickets to the game in order to meet you and drink a few at TailGate Park pre-game, but, alas, there are no single game tickets remaining for the Nebraska game. I'd also wear a big, yellow foam Cowboy hat in order for you to see me on television, but the problem is there will probably be 50 other guys/gals wearing big, yellow foam Cowboy hats that day. (Could they all be closet Turdites?)

About the car damage and "keying": Aggravating, but all part of the rivalries in this area with overzealous youngsters. I've had my car damaged twice in Fort Collins (Colorado State U.), but I'm sure some Ram fans can say the same on trips to Laramie.

Dang Greenies!! wink

(That's why I trade in all my green for silver.......)

------> Silver at $48 by Wyoming-Nebraska game-day.
