bankers gold

The banks will never "take their boot off of golds neck!"

Gold will have to stick Its boot up the bankers arses , until it can do that it will be rigorously "managed"

Once they have lost control of gold they will pull out their next tricks, confiscation,greed tax, whatever, that is the point at which, we will how to decide how to keep it out of their grasping greedy little clutches legally or illegally its much easier to hide once you have it your hands too!

Coolslug ask yourself where you would have put that money if you had sold at the top? chances are it would not have done any better anywhere over the last 4 years?

Good luck whatever you choose to do

I have asked this question before....Where Ya Gonna Go ???

Real Estate ? As long as state and local governments have the power to tax it can blow up and take your arse with it. When the shtf, they will be on you like white on snow. Until it does, if you own any, you will be taxed every year just for owning it. If you sell it and make a dime, they will tax that as well. When a local government is about to go under, what do they do ? Raise real estate taxes. When the shtf, they will be dropping like flies in a forest fire. If you can't raise the money to pay the tax, they'll confiscate (steal) your property and sell it. If everyone is broke, rental property is one very bad 'investment'. Look at the 'Great Depression'. What we face today because of debt makes that look like 'the good old days'.

End your PM buying ? I can certainly see that BUT 'sell it all' is a desperation move that will end very badly for you.

Just my two cents.

I can understand dumping your mining shares if you no longer believe in them (they are clearly high risk investments), but not your physical gold. It will not go to zero, and if you hold on to it, you are protected from both the devaluation of your other assets and the devaluation of your currency. Converting physical gold into another asset is much more risky than holding it. The only reason to sell physical gold is if you need to purchase something or make a payment.

Someone made an analogy to The Big Short a few posts above. I think that is a fitting analogy for investing in gold/silver miners. It appears they are an illogical investment with too much risk, but if you get the outcome correct (higher gold prices), the rewards will be phenomenal. Those Big Short investors could have lost everything. It's the same with mining investors. It's highly speculative. You either have the mindset to see it through or not. You need the vision to believe it will happen. This is why investing in miners should be for the long term. Short term investors have a very hard time holding onto mining shares.

I personally do not believe that Trump can pull us out of this mess. The US is steadily drowning in debt and pretending it doesn't matter. Well, I believe it does matter. In The Big Short they bet that a housing crash would occur. For us mining investors, we are betting that the debt bubble will burst and gold will rise in value. I'm still willing to keep that trade on.

Gold may go to sub $1000 and bankrupt a lot of my mining stocks, but I'll hang in there until the economic environment changes. In my mind, the only thing that can kill the miners trade is steady 3% growth in both the US and global economy. That's the risk of keeping this trade on. Everything else that pushes down gold is just noise and can't last.

coolslug re: To my wife who will never see this post...

I empathize with wife wanted me to sell some phyzz in 2011 when we hit recent highs in both PMs, but no, I felt TEOTGKE was upon us!


I get reminded of my inaction many more times than I care to hear it, and I keep saying to her, it will all make sense when the big reset happens.

We are all pretty much in the same boat, but some are worse off than others.

I still treat PMs as much needed insurance in an insane world, but not everyone can.

However, the bankers love to hear people like us capitulate--that is their gameplan, to outlast even the most ardent believers in real money.

I hope you can figure out a way to hang in there a little longer...I think your wife will be proud of you if you can. I wish I could say when that will be, but everyday brings it closer.

coolslug - 10:48am post

Coolslug - we are now in the definitive battle against the central bankers (Rottenchilds and their minions). We have a true warrior in the form of Donald Trump to lead that battle - until the 20th of January he is impotent - after then all will change. Just hold on till then mate and you will be rewarded. It is always darkest just before the dawn.

Hang in there man - just 6 more weeks.

Coolslug- Regardless of what your ultimate decision is I wish you much luck as someone who has been willing to fight the good fight with the rest of us- Really, Good luck to you my friend. Rather than trying to judge whether you bought for investment sake, insurance or simply liked the thought of Gold $50,000 this ride of manipulation has thrown many a good man and woman off the bull and you should not be so hard on yourself.

However, I would like to ask you a sincere question rather than selling you on all the reasons to sit tight and be right. The question- What are you going to do with all of the proceeds from your physical and mining stocks liquidation? I have many a time reached the same point of capitulation only to be faced with what to do next. Sit in cash and wait for a drop in stocks to buy back in to that game of AAPL, Google, Exxon etc.etc. Maybe you will purchase real estate and get in the rental game or speculate on that next up and coming suburb. Maybe just putting money in Bonds and play the "safe route".

I will reiterate that my question is a sincere one as many here who are currently having the same thoughts or have contemplated in the past must all come up with the answer of "WHAT NEXT" to invest in, insure your capital with or speculate on a new opportunities.

I would strongly recommend knowing those answers before jumping ship because the ramifications could be significantly worse than what you believe to be facing now. I personally could not come to a "better" way forward than making sure I hold "some" physical and like the prospects of the speculative part of my portfolio in miners vs AAPL etc.. Believe me- I still ocassionally check that thesis against what is out there and until something changes- I like my position. Unless you have found something that could bring value to all of us for consideration- I for one would be all ears...

gold way

Sorry, dude, but I've got to draw the line somewhere. I let all kinds of BS and personal theories be posted here but that comment was over the top.

@ coolslug

Almost all of us are down big time, including myself. Remember the many who said "get rid of those 401k's and retirement accounts and buy miners and PM's?" Well we did and now they have lost 98% of their former value. We bought silver miners back in the Hunt Brothers era and lost our shirts. Many of us need to see silver above $40 to be even.

We have been played like a tuba. Were our goals incorrect? Were there "really" in shortages in metals? NOPE! Look at the adds on this page, lots of metals for sale. I remember when the wealthy were buying stacks of diamonds because their was a manufactured shortage. There are car loads of diamonds being sifted into the market. Why is there still all of these bags full of 90% silver floating around? Their so-called shortages have helped them unload their stacks upon the public.

Having the correct kind of bugout bag and lifestyle are important and we will all realize it in time. Putting excess funds into newer rental units for cash flow is a wonderful investment for this era and we could have had huge returns, over the last few years, if we would have jumped into that arena. (We did). That old fiat cash that we did not spend will buy a bunch of PM's today but why? Keep that old stack and in time the banksters will allow it to drive upward again, just like before, and then we will recover. The banksters love to drive these prices to the moon and then to crash as they make the big gains.

Be thankful for a loving spouse, a warm home, wonderful children, a healthy lifestyle, faith on One Lord, and becoming completely free from the systems of men. jmo Jim

Did you watch "The Big Short" ? The players in that story knew they were right about the market when all around them thought them insane. They were proved right in the end, but it was a nerve wracking journey. Maybe take a look at it if you haven`t seen it, the worst that can happen is you watch a good movie, good luck.
