TFMR Podcast - Saturday, November 29


There are certainly some signs that we once again stand near the edge of the precipice. Therefore, I thought I'd just make this podcast immediately public.

It's not that this podcast is full of incredible analysis or earth-shattering information. It just seems to me that the world might be once again barreling toward financial crisis. Since there are likely quite a few visitors to this site who sense the same, I simply felt like I should make this podcast public.

For today, we discuss these charts. First, crude:

Then these three GOFO items:

And then these four charts of gold and silver:

Finally, please be sure you've read both of these ZH links:

Here's a sample of some anti-SGI propaganda:

And, potentially worst of all, make sure you've seen this from back on Thursday:

I hope you enjoy your weekend,

Re: Disappointed, yes

You wrote: "True democracy required that voters completely understand both sides of the issue" ....

Swiss democracy in its current form is working. People had an opportunity to vote. And the issues were well disclosed via sponsors and the media if one had an interest to dive deeper. It would be better to say those that were trying to force Switzerland to recognize gold as a backstop for their currency and sovereign wealth failed to make an argument that swayed the voting public in their favor. We all need to recognize that the same referendum would have failed in almost every country in existence today.

Not picking on you specifically Mattheim. The good news is that at least the proponents of protecting national wealth are being heard enough to where they can get this on ballots. I am willing to wager this woke more than a few people up.

amen ensues

The Stanton family of one held the same vote with the same result. It also unanimously voted to declare martial law from fence post to fence post.

People Love Money

Until it's over.

Until then, no party for PM.

They better get their butts in gear and get back to refining gold and making those .9999 bars and shipping them to the East. Too ignorant to understand what is going on in the world as they work 24/7 making gold bars for others.

Is it now just a nation that makes of overpriced trinkets???

Ensues Family Referendum Passes

Earlier this morning the Ensues Family Save Our Gold referendum passed with 100% of voters voting yes. The Ensues family voted to continue backing a significant percentage of family assets in Gold and Silver. Additionally no gold will be sold and the Ensues family will be providing a bid in the open market. Real money advocates expressed congratulations on the successful outcome of the referendum. This news is yet another crack in the fiat money system advocated by western Governments.

Always The Same Issue

What's the alternative?

Craig I agree with you

....they are fools like everyone else I've been trying to convince about the PM's for the last 14 years.

The classic case;I dated a woman who had graduated from USC with two degrees in Engineering, attended Cambridge, been VP of a very prominent tech company and she didn't know what fiat meant.

She had no clue. Everyone is desperately trying to collect as many dollars as they can with out spending one second asking themselves what a dollar really is.

Final Washout this Week

I think we'll see a final washout in price this week. Silver should briefly hit the $14 handle and gold sub-$1100. Premiums will nullify this effort, regardless. Miners have already bottomed at HUI of 146. Back up the truck week. Soldier on and remember the reasons we fight this war and take advantage of enormous ignorance.

Re: Disappointed, yes. Surprised, no.

I think it also points out that true democracy requires that the voters completely understand both sides of the issues that they are voting on. My guess is that if the Swiss people truly understood the fiat currency based fractional reserve banking system (ie like most Turdites) the outcome would have been different.

Nov 30, 2014 - 10:33am

The "good news" is

that the selling in gold and silver over the next few days will be by the non commercials and will be captured in the (can we even believe the data?) COT. If Turd is correct and metal cannot be sourced below 1140ish then we should see the commercials step in and prevent a waterfall decline. We shall see, if the preliminary SGI results are correct than we cannot underestimate the lengths that TPTB will go to prevent gold from being reintroduced back into the monetary system. So much for the 'independent, free thinking' Swiss people :-)

edit: the price action over the next few days, especially in the gold stocks, will tell us whether this is just a pullback or the beginning of a new leg down
