Adding Courage To Your Conviction


At this critical time, I thought it might be a good idea to make today's podcast public.

I do these almost every day at Subscriptions are monthly at $15/month. But this isn't about adding subscribers and I didn't set out to make today's podcast more special than any other day. This is simply about giving you as much courage as possible to face the days ahead.

We have seen an historic effort to manage price and transfer risk. The process is nearly complete but capitulation may still be coming. You must be prepared and, thus, the sharing of this podcast.

I hope it helps.

Well, if you put up enough posts in one day,

it's only a matter of time before I log on at exactly the right time.

Thanks Turd.


yes, I used a dot as a placeholder.

You see, I don't type, And it takes a long time to dictate, copy,

and paste, into this box.

Now, I need to listen to my favorite precious metals analyzer, explain what the hell is going on today.

This should be very, very interesting. Besides, it beats listening to the radio while cooking dinner.

O, By the Way,

I'm first.

Thanks Mr. T

Will toast a glass of wine to you tonight.

Ought to be selling

Ought to be selling everything you have to buy silver FUTURES?

Here's hoping you meant "buy phyz".

Over 11,000 trades on the first one minute tick made sure that the 26 handle remained.

Enjoying the podcast Turd. Thanks for the freebie.

Top ten spot for the furst time...

So, there was a sign delivered to me today. Now if I could only figure out what it means...

My morning appointment took me to within a few hundred yards of my favorite LCS, so I figured I would take advantage, since I missed yesterday. Once I saw the price action (I got there at 1 PM EST), literally within a minute of the most recent low, I was doubly determined to make a purchase.

ING bank --- which delivered some negative balances to its account holders yesterday -- had sold its US arm to CapitalOne, so I dodged that bullet.

1st ATM - despite being on the no-fee list for the bank, wanted $4.00. Angry, I decided to find another machine nearby.

2nd ATM - processes my withdrawal request, but then the screen goes blank, flashes 'ATM ERROR - CONTACT ATTENDANT', spits out a note claiming to have dispensed $120 -- and only five $20 bills. Luckily, the attendant was right there, believed me and returned my missing cash.

3rd ATM - Chase bank. Dammit, but at this point I was impatient, and paid the bastards the $3.00 fee, and rushed on to the LCS...

... which turned out to be closed for remodeling until next week. I had been circling in a half-mile radius trying to get the cash, and never thought to call them, as it was on my way anyway....

AAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGHH. Either the evil spirits are conspiring to keep me attached to my fiat, or my guardian angel intervened to (for once) stop me from buying just before another major drop. However, I am inclined to think this means the bottom may very well have been hit... In any case, will try again tomorrow, at a different shop.


I was reminded of this movie - an off-kilter, slightly lowbrow but very funny Adam Sandler flick:

It works on so many levels:

- The scene you are watching is a conversation between:

a) gold and silver investors, arguing about who can take more pain in the current market

b) USD and EUR agreeing on and demonstrating competitive devaluation

c) COMEX market makers & spec money painting the tape to the eventual conclusion

The First Crack In The Bond Market Is A Fact

Most important part:

All banks in the Western world are bankrupt, which implies that someone is going to lose a lot of money. That is the fundamental case for gold. Precious metals are the only assets that have no corresponding liability. One of the functions of gold and silver is to act as an insurance policy against financial irresponsibility.

Based on plain logic we can expect additional bank failures, capital controls and more losses by bank depositors. It is up to anyone to chose to keep money in the bank, or keep it in precious metals which is the primary store of value that has no counterparty risk.
