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.

Yes, BUT... I believe it will be a slow fall. I seriously doubt it will be a Kaboom until it gets closer to the bottom. The Dollar will not completely implode until it is Officially not the World's Reserve currency IMO.

A dollar collapse now, just as the George Soros B-W 3 meeting...

gets underway in NH to try and save the day with a new currency? What another darn coincidence! It is as if this dollar collapse was planned to occur right now. Perfect timing George and those banksters. They can all reserve the number of their jail cells while they have the opportunity.

I honestly hope every gold or

I honestly hope every gold or silver holder here makes out like bandits. Good luck, everyone.

If the gov't does shutdown today, what will happen to ....

the markets on Monday? I'm assuming both metals and stocks would decline since the dollar should gain in value (ie. not needing to print as much) and the PPT would not be active in proping up stocks. That is, unless the PPT is considered "essential".
Anyone else?

The shutdown is irrelevant.

I see it as a dollar

I see it as a dollar confidence shaker, metals will go up, the dollar hold steady or slightly decline.

It's true

Stocks are slammed today. Oil is to blame, say the excuse-makers.

Stock market is stalled, but not metals.

They are shining brightly.

There are no designated traders or whatever they are called to bring its price into line with the NAV. I am no fan of floating closed end funds like PSLV and CEF. By the time you want or need to sell, others will want or need to sell too, and that premium could turn into a discount. I prefer bright, shiny objects.

oil now $112.40. Is the inflation vs. deflation debate now over!

There doesn't seem to be anymore questions, IMO.

Booring day

Silver is flat today!

I still feel exited, since silver broke another dollar level. 40!

The dollar is soon as low as it was a few years ago.. I remember
5:90 vs the SEK. 6:21 today.

As most around 200/2001 it was around 11 vs the SEK.

Soon it is only half that.. Amazing how far it fluctuates.

I had dinner with an American back then as The Lord of The Rings had premier here, and he was so happy the dollar was strong.
Everything was dirt cheap here for him, guess it´s not so now.

I suspect the SEK will plummet in some not to distant future, after all the real estate is out of touch with reality here and our exports are Dependant of the USA and Euro area.

#1 Thread

This has been my #1 thread for 6 months now. I watch it daily, as I watch the kitco charts. I love watching the running commentary....

Colchester, New London County, Connecticut

It was a very good idea

to have one topic, instead of many new all the time.

It is all collected in one place, brilliant.

Thank you.

I agree

One very long thread instead of a dozen similar threads is much better.

SteveMT's picture

Yep. It's crazy time.

It's been me helping with the updating, and has been pure paranoia driven in an effort to keep the thread current and comments coming. No worries. This gives me something else to do.

Appreciate it

It is weird I feel guilty if I miss an update because so many people watch it. Thanks for the help. I love this thread myself because I can come back and always see what people are saying in one place. It is nice. Again...Thanks

anyone think there is going

anyone think there is going to be some sort of short term correction very soon? 40 is a pretty big psychological number ... and by correction i mean profit taking plus some downward pressure by government ... the majority would be profit taking ...

if you think it's coming down for a short term .. where do you think the short term bottom is?

i need to buy a dip and am looking for a good spot to buy

i am hoping for the $39 level maybe $38.80

All paper money eventually returns to its real intrinsic value, zero. - Voltaire

My feeling (admittedly based on nothing)....

...is that we are just now reaching the new 'bottom'. Silver will continue to rise but may correct back down to the $40 range. That's called a 'buying opportunity'.

Too many governments are deeply vested in metals now for it to crash. If you see them shedding their holding, then that might be a sign of something happening - but I can't think of any reason it would happen.

I may not know the truth, but I know when I'm being lied to...

I'm betting $50.00 before $30.00....

hope I'm wrong cuz I would sure like to be able to buy at $30.00 (or $20.00) at least one more time.

Ya know what

Im not going to buy today. We have had such an amazing run this past week and I just don't feel right buying something on the way up like this.

After the government comes up with a way to fund itself and extend the debt ceiling I believe we should have a correction back down to 37 or 38 next week.

Don't worry, still extremely bullish tho

i know how ur feeling.

my dealer usually calls me on down days, since he knows that that's the time i like to buy.

but there have been times when i've bought on peaks, luckily, silver has made higher peaks.

Da Bears!

As the bears would say "I think I just sh$t myself." Haha!

Guys, I finally bought from the friend I talked about who opened a "We buy gold" shop. It is really interesting actually. He buys items off people, waits ten days for jewelry and then goes and has it melted.

I bought my first real junk silver and I love it. I got a bunch of dimes, normal and mercury, and quarters. I also got a weird two ounce "Happy Birthday" piece. I got 4 1970 pesos and my favorite item which is a sterling silver fork.

I can't help myself. I brought the fork today with me to work to show people and to use. :)


is there a site, maybe one of the sites listed in the original post, that i can see if backwardation is occurring in silver and gold?

Dollar crash today?
