Gold $5000 and Silver $200 an ounce...

Rob McEwen: Your readers need to appreciate: Gold is money. It is currency. I think the number of people familiar with gold will grow as people see gold as a currency. China, India, Russia are buying gold to diversify their foreign reserves. To restore the confidence in currencies, I think some central banks, such as the Chinese and possibly the Russian, will increase their gold holdings to the level that the percentage of their total currency will be greater than that of any other currency in the world. At that point, they will assert that their currency should become the reserve currency of the world.

Swiss will vote on Nov. 30 for gold backed Franc

http://www.dailypaul.com/325123/swiss-will-vote-on-nov-30-fo...

Later this year, on November 30, the good people of Switzerland will finally get an opportunity to make their voices heard. The Swiss Gold Initiative can be roughly stated in three parts:

1. The halting of all Swiss gold sales

2. The repatriation of all Swiss gold that is held in foreign vaults

3. Resume backing the Swiss Franc with gold, at a minimum level of 20%

$20 silver: biggest joke ever!

Would you sell out Jesus for $495, that's what the $20 silver market says! 30 pieces of silver in those days equates to 15 ozs. I used to buy a gallon of gas with two silver dimes, my dad worked all day for 1 dime. In the roman empire workers commonly worked all day for 1/10 oz of silver.

Since almost all silver ever mined is gone shouldn't silver be worth more than gold?

Rhodium down another $40 today, down $110 in last two days.

The stock market and dollar index gains are the drivers, so it seems. How long can they keep this going?

SteveMT's picture

Rhodium is down $70 today. Palladium continues to shine.

Rhodium was involved in a very recent pump and today a dump, and it is now $1,260/Toz.
Palladium continues to hold gains made since early 2009 when it was $240/Toz. Palladium is shining brightly, better than gold, albeit not as widely accepted.

Stocks enjoyed the best week in 4 months!

Woohoo!! The recession is over guys! Sell your gold and silver, no need to insure your future wealth amidst a global currency crisis or escalation of geopolitical time-bombs in Israel, Iraq, and Ukraine. We are in the clear and smooth sailing from here!

Lets Get Real !

The value of the paper dollar miraculously rises, and Gold plummets in price.

Since paper money doesn't have any intrinsic value at all, why don't we value Gold in how many ounces of Silver it will buy, like the founders did.

How much Copper it will buy, how much fresh meat it will buy, how much lead it will buy, how much Honey it will buy, etc. etc. ? ? ? ?

beesting

Get Used to It...

Yes, it is time for the precious metals bulls and dollar bears to get real. There is nothing "miraculous" about the dollar's rise. I've been telling you guys for nearly 4 years that deflation is the greater threat.

You are getting a glimpse of that now and let me tell you, you are going to be pulling your own hair out of your head before it's over if you keep on fighting the last war. Virtually everything has turned lower. The only holdout (besides the dollar) is stocks, and they will turn soon IMO. Once they do, you will not believe the carnage that will follow.

The whole system is run by phycopaths!

How can anyone predict what's going to happen in the future? I am hanging on to my silver, because the whole system is going to collapse. I don't see much chance it will make it past the 2016 election. I wouldn't put it past Obama to call off the 2016 Election, so he can be our dictator.

I have come to the realization that all markets are manipulated by someone, and commodities will rise and fall as they want them to.

You keep talking up the dollar, but it's not so strong against the Chinese Yuan. Brother John shows it has fallen from 8 to 1 down to 6 to 1 and it will most likely keep falling against the Yuan. The dollar vs yuan starts at 3:30: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F18KRk0-0vU&list=PL4B7MqBf8Q2...

Where do we get most of our imports from? What happens if the Dollar and Yuan got to a 1 to 1 relationship? Here the FED has no control, you see a freer competition.

Gold standard: because man can not be trusted to control his greed

No Way

Bonds are also in a gigantic bubble. However, they will never allow deflation to win the day. We see this in the so-called taper and the subsequent Belgium Bulge. They are simply buying bonds through the back door. The next crisis will be papered over by the IMF like Jim Rickards says. It simply fits their MO.

You forgot stocks

DOW, NASDAQ, S&P, NYSE all going up, up and away over the last few days.

Right now the gold to silver ratio is 66.

Good stuff here

from Bix Weir. He has a few puzzle pieces in his information I haven't heard elsewhere.

"It’s not pessimistic, brother, because this is the blues. We are blues people. The blues aren’t pessimistic. We’re prisoners of hope but we tell the truth and the truth is dark. That’s different."

Excellent video via Bix Weir...

When...is my question. Will it all fall apart by the end of the year which is what I "think" I'm hearing OR is it still "not sure when?" Will it be an incremental collapse little by little or one big slam dunk? Any further insights?

Thanks for the Bix Weir video, DJP33.3

Bix gives a good education into banking tyranny. Ugh. There are some very miserable people out there.

The Gold & Silver Morning Smackdown Is Back

8-15-14

Despite NATO's warnings of Russian escalation in Ukraine, 8amET was a far bigger catalyst for precious metals this morning as the once ubiquitous morning meltdown is back. With gold relatively flat and Treasury yields down 10bps after a 60 point S&P surge, maybe this is catch-down but the heavy-volume plunge in Gold and Silver is notable in that USDJPY appeared to jerk higher at the same time.
Gold and silver appear to be dumping back to the same flush levels as copper and oil on the week.

Smackdown followed by a pump-up

Gotta be f-kin kidding me, total crash in the price and then a buying spree....what is going on? Wall Street/FED crashes the price and then they go shopping?

Fear is their only weapon.

An ounce of gold or silver, OR platinum or palladium cannot be changed. The metals exist. They are real. Their value remains constant. The day of truth is coming.

Gold down $20 this morning

Why has gold not done

Why has gold not done anything in so long? It has been at a steady price for over a year I believe.

My New Website

By the way, daily-paulers, I've recently launched my own website, which will regularly chronicle the daily metamorphosis of the crooked international financial system. It will cover precious metals, of course, but also macro econ, the currency wars, geo-politics, the BRICS developments, and the new system-to-be.

I am the Wealth Watchman, and I do hope each of you will stop by in the days to come, and consider becoming a shield brother(subscriber).

Have a great evening!

Measuring wealth in dollars is problematic, they sublimate.

Putin Says The Petrodollar Must Die

President Vladimir Putin said on Thursday Russia should aim to sell its oil and gas for roubles globally because the dollar monopoly in energy trade was damaging Russia's economy.

Well I don't know exactly what would happen to the silver market

Well, I don't know exactly what would happen to the silver market if they'd build one.

But, oddly enough, I'm pretty darn sure they wouldn't be able to build one of those EVERY YEAR without some interesting repercussions (euphemism) on other dependent industries with makers/exports in/to the US -

- THAT, I am confident to say, can be taken for sure!

Either that, or someone - anyone - better get started and come ASAP with a historic breakthrough in the sort of drill tools used by miners!

LOL :)
