TFMR Podcast - Saturday, November 29

120

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:

https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-11-29/federal-reserve-confirms-bigge...

Here's a sample of some anti-SGI propaganda: https://bigstory.ap.org/article/59282b3bc1db4cec924db1ca5970428d/swiss-v...

And, potentially worst of all, make sure you've seen this from back on Thursday: https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-11-27/nato-deploy-tanks-eastern-euro...

I hope you enjoy your weekend,

TF

Harvey Organ

seems like one of us good guys 'fighting the good fight', I started reading his blog after his interview on USA Watchdog, guess he lost some credibility in my view after insisting that there were Chinese entities who were going to empty the Comex vaults of all the silver this month and now explains away the sudden drop in OI as illegal cash settlements. Dunno, have to admit that huge drops in OI without much price volatility is strange market behavior to say the least

I wasted a little time....

...trying to find some new information about the state of the Swiss Gold Initiative -- and was struck by how complete the carpet-bombing of gold-negative reporting is in German-language media.

It's not just one or two, or a dozen articles -- EVERYTHING that has the word 'gold' in it seems to be dismissive, derogatory. Everyone who even CONTEMPLATES a role for gol din the global financial/monetary system is portrayed as an utter lunatic. The gold standard is the economic antichrist, and the cause of all crises/instability/depression.

For an English-edition version of the same basic themes: qz.com

Die Zeit (online) The Fear of the Gold Worshipper and the Ardent Desire for Gold

Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (roughly NY Times equivalent?) -- the initiative is just a populist ploy from a politician with waning popularity -- The Populist Gold

A slightly more balanced piece, but still warns that gold is dropping, and will ultimately drop faster if (when) the SGI fails:

Will the Swiss let gold price explode tomorrow?

Every sidebar article, every editorial, news summary snippet, etc. is screaming 'you have to be an IDIOT to vote for this'.

While this may very well portend that this is thus a self-fulfilling prophecy, the very fact of such a full-court press seems to me to indicate that there is a realistic 'danger' of a yes vote -- or at least TPTB are not willing to take ANY chances. No Diebold gadgets involved seems to make a difference, after all...

Oil price

In my opinion the oil price shock illustrates exactly what is happening in the geopolitical sphere. According to the EIA the oil surplus (total liquids) is a mere 0.4 million bbl/day in Q4 and for 2015 in a 92 million bbl/day market.

https://www.eia.gov/forecasts/steo/report/global_oil.cfm

Historically Saudi Arabia has been the swing producer that has reduced its output to maintain prices. As far as revenue is concerned it would receive more revenue at $100 pricing with 0.4 million bbl/day fewer sales that at the current sub $70 pricing. Furthermore its role in the current price will tend to destroy at least some of the US shale oil industry.

Clearly Saudi Arabia has brought the petro dollar era to a close as it pivots Eastward toward India and China. Expect the next move to be that it will accept yuan as do many of China's oil suppliers.

https://www.financialsense.com/contributors/dan-collins/rise-petro-yuan

So the currency war has evolved into a full scale trade war (through sanctions) and now the Saudi's has escalated trade war into likely global chaos. Expect the next step to be a regional war.

Ol' Swifty. True event. Once at my own company's annual fire marshal inspection,

They actually wrote up MY PRIVATE OFFICE as a fire hazard !! I rolled up a dumpster to the back door and took the whole weekend to sort/clean it for a reinspect on monday. My employees never let me live that one down.
