ancientmoney, a demo

I did a trade, starting yesterday just so you could see it in action and know it’s real.

https://www.tfmetalsreport.com/comment/706607#comment-706607

Shorted yesterday at $18.05. I just sold it when it fell like a knife through $17.80.

I didn’t put up the money to whack the price. It’s just leveraging someone else’s efforts and $.

I wouldn’t have made the trade just to show off, the signs I use were there but I am out quickly with a small profit because I have another tranche in play, this one was just a demo and the signs are not strong enough to convince me to stay longer....I can’t tell if they are finished, can’t tell if it was ‘them’ or some other ‘them’ and it is a casino after all so....I’m out while I have money in my pocket. Another time, another set of circumstances and I would stay in longer. Feel free to see for yourself how much the price gets mauled. And think on how many people had to be on the wrong side....and how did they get fooled.....

There’s much more fooling going on than PM prices. This is just (for me) where I keep it real while inside the Matrix.

More QE- Dollar up and PM's go down!!!

Sorry, but lower interest rates and more QE isn't going to hurt the US Dollar or help the gold price, been there done that.

It's just more of the same BS, nothing is going to change anytime soon.

Bottom line.

It was in the small print when you entered the game when you purchased your first coin. But like the video arcade games I used to play in college, it sometimes takes alot of quarters before you master the game.

The game is not only playable, it's also possible to sail against the wind, we call it kryssa, do you call it to cruise?

Yepp, I am a lifepath 8 extreme, boom-bust trader, hopefully that's a thing of the past.

Sailing against the wind

Solsson,

I think the English word in your example is ‘tack’. Tacking is the typical method for sailing against the wind. In the zig-zag pattern that results, each leg, or segment, is a tack.

Zman,

What was that you said about gold price?

You have been mouthy since day 1. Glad to see you have always been wrong.

Wrong about what exactly?

1. A strong US dollar? 2. Lower interest rates since the 10 year hit 3.25%? 3. A higher US stock market? 4. Weak commodity prices? 5. A lower velocity of money? 6. No fiscal stimulus? 7. High trade deficits?

Just tell me you're not declaring some sort of victory with silver down -64%, gold down -22% and GDX down -56% from 2011?

I'm wrong when gold breaks the all-time high of $1920 oz, until then this is still bear market action and nothing more. More QE and lower interest rates makes NO difference, been there done that. Try to think outside of the box, gold needs real inflation from a major change in fiscal/tax policy.

not worth worrying about.

The gift of life is mostly what matters.

We need people like zman that

We need people like zman that leaves plenty of chips on the table. I've scooped up a fair share the last few months.

As a Swede you do not need to look outside the box, just look at gold in SEK.
I thought the rally in gold would be over by now, but the close yesterday looks encouraging going into next week.

If you want to know the future of the dollar, just look at CAD/AUD/SEK etc. The dollar will probably be the last fiat domino to fall.

Sweden today suffering from spiritual fatigue. Keep the show going, do not look the other way. If you do you might learn something that your are not supposed to.

sailing against the wind

Energy input can always be harnessed to advantage but according to the laws of thermodynamics cannot be exploited to create more energy than the actual input.

Windward sailing is a perfect example of using in your face power to advantage but can never be used to beat the the actual power source.

The power dynamic of nature has yet to be demonstrated as free.

The miracle of free power has yet to be demonstrated by mortal human beings.

the free energy motor

is a dream that may one day be achieved but I suspect it could only happen when spiritual enlightenment becomes reality.

I'm not a Swede

but they grow quite well in my garden. Most vegetables are nice but spuds would have to be the best, probably followed by asparagus and broad beans?

Free stuff

Wind, rain, sunlight, photosynthetic oxygen, environmental services such as dung beetles. Earth is a paradise being destroyed by ongoing overpopulation of a major predator.

US Dollar Higher!!!

Well, almost another new recent all-time high for the US Dollar today and the result- gold and silver getting killed.

Sorry to break the news, but the Fed printing billions for the Repo market makes no difference at all.

Also, check out oil today, breaking the 50 and 200 DMA's. Also, the general commodities complex continues to trade higher. Gold can NOT have a real bull market without ALL commodities moving higher.

Bond yields moving LOWER as the US Dollar trades higher, what else is new?

Social commentary posts

I opened a new thread for social commentary posts, for everybody to use.

https://www.tfmetalsreport.com/forum/9694/plotting-course-zeitgeist

It's a receptacle for links or discussion about newsy items that are harbingers of change.

It will probably get cluttered, but filtering the good from the mass is always a challenge with all news. so we'll see if it goes well or fades from disuse. I'm sure our host Craig appreciates plenty of activity on TFMR so crossed fingers for positive outcome on that!

In the meantime, Setup can be a little more focused on the markets, trade opportunities and our best analysis/guess about those.

@Solsson:

Page 618. How about that. Setup exceeds 1/Phi today.

There are 12350 replies on this forum now. 12350. That divided by 10000 is 1.235 which is awfully close to 1.236.

And 1.236 happens to be 1 + 1/Phi ^3

The alchemy of the market in the posts of this thread.

Thanks (again) to everyone who contributes here. You know who you are.
