It's Wednesday Janurary 23rd, and (once again) pictures speak louder than words when it comes to summarizing what took place today in metals markets:

From our "friends" at Basher Central:


This image is hidden for guests. Please login or register to see it.

Again, we see the same pattern we have seen every day. Market ambush, shortly after the NY fraud-markets open; followed by the market (trying to) bounce back. Two things make today's price action somewhat different -- and thus the different result: lower prices.

First we see an even MORE-EXTREME attack on the market after the open. Then (as the picture shows) we see CONTINUED (extreme) pressure on the market -- not only HOLDING the market down (with all their might), but then launching ANOTHER WAVE of shorting later in the same day.

This is the typical behavior of any knuckle-dragging Bully: hit something/someone and if it's not intimidated, and you hit it even harder. Of course, as with all Bullies we also have the Cowards' reaction too: when your target refuses to be intimidated, you run away and hide behind Mommy's skirt (i.e. the CME Group).

And then you whine to "Mommy" that you are the one being "bullied" -- and then Mommy lashes out with five, rapid-fire margin-hikes to do the Bully's "fighting" for him...

Let me add a quick "P.S." to today's edition, as I was a little hasty in checking out the market. I had assumed that the price of silver had been taken lower with the price of gold.

Of course (as is often the case) we see what happens when one "assumes". Lol! In fact, silver has held its ground today, shaken off the attack in the gold market; and is moving upward -- toward $32.50.

Not typical price-action considering the extreme efforts being made today to hold gold down...

It's Thursday January 24th, and the banksters have ramped-up their assault still further.

Understand that it is totally unnecessary to know precisely what the banksters are doing, only that they have launched "something new" at the bullion market. We see that (via deductive reasoning) when we see that (suddenly) a very "buoyant" market which was surging higher any time that maximum pressure was removed from the market is now -- equally suddenly -- quiet and well-behaved.

So whether the banksters ratcheted their lease-rates well below zero; found a little real bullion to dump onto the market; or simply bombed the market with an ESPECIALLY large, steaming "mound" of their fraudulent, paper-shorting; we know that they "did something."

I realize that this is frustrating...but only if you allow it to frustrate you. When I tell people over and over that "low prices lead to high prices"; this is not simply rationalization to make us feel better (lol!!). This is ARITHMETIC, and thus it must happen.

What is the ULTIMATE impact of all of the banksters' manipulation? Two things:

1) STIMULATING demand (with their artificially low prices).

2) KILLING supply (with their artificially low prices).

In turn, the only possible result of HIGHER demand and LOWER supply is the destruction of inventories. And nothing (in the entire realm of human commerce) leads to higher prices than SHORTAGES.

The banksters are not driving down prices today (from already ridiculously low levels) because it is an "optimal strategy". They are doing so because they are EXTREMELY desperate, and they know that when prices slip out of their grasp in the "next rally" that we will NOT see gold going to $2000 and silver going to $50/oz.

The "next rally" (some time in the next 12 - 18 months) will see gold going to $2500 (or more), and silver going to $75 - $100 (or more). Count on it.



Meanwhile, at the moment, gold is back down in the $1670's, and silver is back below $32...

Re: The Daily Grind... 1 Year, 2 Months ago Karma: 255
It's Friday January 25th, and the banksters frantic assault on the gold and silver markets continues. Gold is (at the moment) down a few more dollars below $1660, while silver is back below $31.50.

So with the price-action relatively mild, why do I characterize this as a "frantic assault"? Elementary deductive logic.

1) The bankers CAN'T stop gold/silver prices from rising (dramatically) over the long term. If this were not true, gold would still be below $300/oz and silver would still be under $5/oz.

2) In fact, as I have explained/demonstrated again and again; all of the bankers shorting operations MUST lead to even higher prices. This is because the more they "short" the faster they destroy inventories, and the faster they destroy inventories; the higher the price level the market MUST explode to.

3) This means it is directly AGAINST the banksters' own interests to engage in any "major" shorting operations -- except to prevent especially large/explosive rallies. We've seen this principle demonstrated again and again in the past: SMALL rallies are allowed, only the major price-spirals draw major responses.

This was what we saw with the Crash of '08 (where metals prices had ALREADY spiraled higher), and this was what we saw with the major silver-ambush in the spring of 2011 -- when a major operation wasn't begun until AFTER the price of silver had tripled.

But TODAY, we see the banksters stomping on the market (as hard as they can) any/every time that metals prices make a SMALL move higher (5% for gold; 10% for silver).

Given that these shorting operations are (as just demonstrated) against the banksters' own long-term interests, the only rational explanation for these ambushes to be so frequent-and-savage (with price action so mild) is that the banksters are terrified that any "small rally" must/will turn into a giant explosion.

Obviously they are "worried" for good reason. The insane/infinite money-printing already announced on BOTH sides of the Atlantic means that gold should ALREADY be at (at least) $2500/oz, and silver should already be at (at least) $75/oz.

Thus we can deduce from all of this information that we remain on the verge of the longest/strongest rally in this entire, 12-year bull market; AND the banksters themselves are terrified that "this is it". If they lose their grip on the market today they will NEVER get it back again.

Understand that this paradigm makes our own, rational strategy very simple:

a) The MORE the bankers suppress bullion, the higher prices must go (soon).
b) The MORE the bankers suppress bullion, the cheaper we can buy it (today).
c) The MORE the bankers suppress bullion, the more we buy.



Have a good weekend!

Platinum seems to be pulling away from gold now. It was only about $5 more than gold a few days ago, now it's about $35 more.

Reider, what we have to realize is that the (actual) dynamics in commodity markets are (naturally) the mirror opposite of what we see in the currency markets.

With "competitive devaluation" we have the value of ALL paper currencies plummeting lower (as a matter of definition): while our lying bankers/politicians/media try to tell us "there's no inflation."



The opposite to that is that we have a (hidden) spiral in commodity markets as a consequence of the paper-dilution. In every commodity market we have either inventory-destruction taking place, soaring prices, or both.

So when you see the price differential between gold and platinum now widen a little, don't think of it as platinum "accelerating" upward. It only appears that way because the banksters have been pushing DOWN especially hard on the price of gold (in recent days).

The paper MUST go to zero (the definition of "competitive devaluation"). Therefore, DENOMINATED in that paper commodity prices MUST go to infinity. Nothing the banksters do with their market manipulation can change the final result. All they can do is make it so we don't get from "A" to "B" in a straight line.

Re: The Daily Grind... 1 Year, 2 Months ago Karma: 255
It's Monday January 28th, and after taking a couple of days off for some necessary "re-charging" (lol), hopefully I'll be full of pithy insights in the days ahead. Well, that might be a bit much to expect...but I'll try to at least make sure readers aren't bored to tears.



That said, there's nothing much to report today in precious metals markets, at least from the standpoint of price-action. We're back to seeing the same (depressing) sideways movement; and the "buoyancy" which was plainly visible in prices only a week earlier has totally vanished.

Does this mean that the signs of life which we saw a few days ago was just some meaningless speed-bump along the road of bankster bullion-manipulation? Not at all. What was interesting about the recent upward price-pressure on metals markets is that it occurred with NO NEW NEWS of any kind to spur that abbreviated rally.

That "pressure" which was pushing prices higher without any new fundamental impetus obviously is still there (latent, and ready to spring forth again). So not only will we inevitably see more of these "spontaneous rallies" (as manipulated markets ALWAYS try to self-correct), but should we see any sudden, bullion-bullish news appear; it's very possible we could see markets simply EXPLODE through all of this short-term resistance and manipulation in just one or two (spectacular) days.

Because we have no control (ourselves) over these markets, it is totally wasted energy to either get angry/depressed over the price movement (or lack thereof), OR to attempt to "predict" the exact moment when this latest episode of manipulation becomes just another ugly memory.

We KNOW where things will end up: with the paper going to zero. The one thing we DO control is how we prepare ourselves given how events unfold before us. Thus the appropriate way for us to be expending our energies is:

a) monitoring markets/economies to attempt to UNDERSTAND what is going on as best possible
b) PREPARING OURSELVES for what we know is coming.

Re: The Daily Grind... 1 Year, 2 Months ago Karma: 255
It's Tuesday January 29th, and a somewhat late edition of The Grind. "News" today? Gold and silver were up modestly. The reason? If you go to Basher Central, this is what they will tell you:

Gold Ends Higher on Short Covering, Bargain Hunting, Bullish Outside Markets

This is propaganda-machine double-talk, which translated means:

We don't want to tell you why the prices of gold and silver are REALLY higher today, because if people understood the real reason(s) they would quickly realize that gold and silver prices should be up EVERY day (for a very, very long time).




Why are gold and silver prices higher today? Apart from its "safe haven" appeal, at a time when all of our governments are facing imminent debt-default? Apart from the fact that because of severely constrained supply that gold and silver haven't been this (relatively) scarce in 400 or 500 years?

The reason why gold and silver prices should be up EVERY day (as we all should know by now) is money-printing -- i.e. currency dilution. While the banksters may only announce "new" money-printing every few months, the printing presses never stop running.

And now with the U.S. engaging in "open-ended" money-printing, while Europe engages in "unlimited" money-printing; the scam is no longer even being hidden. To borrow Jim Sinclair's favorite quip, it's "QE to infinity".

So, gold and silver prices are up modestly today based on the open-ended/unlimited money-printing taking place in our Western Ponzi-scheme economies. And prices should be up again tomorrow, and the day after, and the day after, and the day after...(well, you get the picture)

This isn't "theory". This isn't "speculation". It is an inevitable, mathematical fact. The banksters can't change the Final Result. All they can do is prevent us from getting there in a straight line.



For any interested in some (very) "light" reading (lol)...


Gold Ends Higher on Short Covering, Bargain Hunting, Bullish Outside Markets

www.kitco.com/reports/KitcoNews20130129JW_pm.html

Gold prices ended the U.S. day session with moderate gains Tuesday. Short covering and bargain hunting buying interest were featured following recent selling pressure. The key “outside markets” were in a bullish posture for the precious metals Tuesday, as the U.S. dollar index was weaker and crude oil prices were firmer. February gold last traded up $8.10 at $1,661.00 an ounce. Spot gold was last quoted up $7.60 at $1,662.50. March Comex silver last traded up $0.48 at $31.26 an ounce.

Some downbeat U.S. economic data Tuesday pressured the U.S. dollar index and in turn helped to support the metals markets. U.S. consumer confidence declined by more than expected in January, while home prices declined slightly in November.

The U.S. economic data pace picks up starting Wednesday. The U.S. Federal Reserve’s FOMC meeting and interest rate announcement occurs on Wednesday along with the fourth-quarter advance gross domestic product estimate. The U.S. employment report is out Friday morning. Look for the precious metals market prices to react significantly to the aforementioned reports...

Re: The Daily Grind... 1 Year, 2 Months ago Karma: 255
It's Wednesday January 30th, and an early edition of The Grind -- as (for a pleasant change) we have some hard news that provides for some interesting analysis.



As I write, the price of gold is up over $18/oz, and is suddenly back above $1680, and ready for another move on $1700. Meanwhile, the price of silver has shot up more 2%; and is once again above $32/0z. However, as I always tell readers here; the actual numbers themselves are (still) of little significance.

What is important is why gold and silver prices are moving higher. Again "for a pleasant change", the propaganda machine had no choice but to acknowledge the reason for gold and silver "popping" higher -- because it was so obvious to everyone that there was no way they could invent any other excuse.

And what was that reason? U.S. GDP for the 4th quarter registered a CONTRACTION of 0.1%. Before I continue on with the significance of this for the gold market; a quick word about this GDP number itself. Those who read my latest commentary (" The 2013 Economic Reality-Check") know that U.S. GDP is exaggerated to the up-side by approximately the same amount that U.S. inflation is exaggerated to the down-side -- since the GDP is directly derived from (i.e. "deflated" by) the existing rate of inflation.

With the U.S. government understating inflation by MANY percentage points, this means it's GDP reports are exaggerated to the up-side by a proportionate amount -- I would estimate at least 4 - 5%. Thus when the U.S. government reports that it's GDP contracted 0.1%, when we translate that number to the real world that becomes a contraction of at least 4 - 5% (at an annual rate) -- well into "depression" territory.

Now back to the bullion markets. What is significant here is that a contraction of the U.S. economy obviously represents both "deflation" AND slowing industrial demand for metals. Because of this, for almost all of the last two years; EVERY time the U.S. propaganda machine has come out with bearish news for the global economy (especially the U.S. economy) the banksters have been able to use that propaganda to drive DOWN metals prices substantially.

Yet with EXTREMELY bearish news today (a contraction of the U.S. economy) we see metals prices strongly higher. So what is happening here? Recall what I wrote in a separate post on the forum only 5 days ago: "'Inflation' or 'deflation'? It's ALL gold-bullish"

The reason why bearish/deflationary conditions are just as "bullish" for gold and silver is that with our economies already so badly crippled; any further weakness implies soaring deficits -- and much, much more money-printing and/or "stimulus" as a response. And (of course) it's the money-printing and (inflationary) "stimulus" which are like rocket fuel for commodities prices in general, and bullion prices in particular.

So we see a rarity in metals markets. "News" coming out (severely exaggerated news, but "news" nonetheless); the propaganda machine (more or less) telling the truth about the news; AND metals markets then moving according to what those fundamentals dictated.

Just imagine if the U.S. government would have released the REAL number for 4th quarter GDP...?



Of course one day does not a rally make; and so the real test will be to see whether the Sheep suffer (yet another) bout of "amnesia" a few days from now -- and "forget" that deflationary news is highly bullish for gold and silver. Because then the propaganda-machine will go right back to telling the same lies that they wouldn't even attempt today.



P.S. I wonder how the U.S. propaganda machine will manage to continue its "strengthening recovery" lie -- with the U.S. economy now officially contracting???




Gold Pops Higher Following U.S. GDP Contraction; FOMC Awaited


www.kitco.com/reports/KitcoNews20130130JW_am.html

Gold prices are trading solidly higher and near the daily high Wednesday morning, in the immediate aftermath of a weaker-than-expected U.S. gross domestic product report. Some more short covering and bargain hunting buying interest are featured. The key outside markets are also in a bullish posture for the precious metals Wednesday morning, as the U.S. dollar index is lower and crude oil prices are higher. February gold last traded up $13.20 at $1,674.00 an ounce. Spot gold was last quoted up $2.30 at $1,666.75. March Comex silver last traded up $0.496 at $31.68 an ounce.

Fourth-quarter U.S. GDP contracted by 0.1% on an annual basis. It is the first U.S. GDP decline in over three years. The market place was expecting the figure to be up 1.0%. The gold and silver markets popped higher immediately following the GDP report, on ideas the weak data will prompt the Federal Reserve to adhere to is very easy money policies presently in place.

The two-day FOMC meeting ends Wednesday afternoon with its official policy statement to follow. Most market watchers expect the Fed to keep U.S. monetary policy unchanged—meaning continuing asset purchases and a very accommodative stance. However, traders will also be watching for any nuances that are included in the Fed statement, which could provide early clues on when the Fed will stop its asset purchases...
