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.

NYT article covers silver manipulation.

A Conspiracy With a Silver Lining

"Trying to unravel the mysterious rise in silver’s price is a conspiracy theorist’s dream, replete with powerful bankers, informants, suspicious car accidents and a now a squeeze on short sellers. Most intriguingly, however, much of the speculation seems highly plausible."


Undo what Wilson did

This article

...sums it up quite succinctly. Let there be no doubt that there is indeed manipulation taking place in the silver market. The fact that waivers were granted to the Morgue is clear proof.

But they are between a rock and a hard place. With the US debt spiraling out of control and Asia rising, they're f'ed.

It seems that this article

was copied from an article in the Silver Bear by Mr. Cohan.

But, I'm glad to see it going mainstream....

Best I can tell, it's NYT original,

then picked up by more than one silver site. That is what's noteworthy imo...mainstream even mentioning it, let alone publishing a fairly balanced article.

My bad.

I'm glad its out there.

Spooky chart...the last time ECB bumped rates.


Of course, Trichet only said he could raise rates. But he seems trapped between inflation and debt on the periphery.

Undo what Wilson did

Rather hefty gains at end of trading today.

Jobs data did all that? Bizarre reaction from the street, as usual.

Gains ?

Gas went up 12% this week, hamburger went up 8%. Cotton socks are up 10% and sugar has doubled in the last six months. Did the street overcome that, after taxes ?

links to a couple annotated charts that'll help clarify what's going on with all the volatility, and what to expect. In summary, BUY THE DIP!!



I want the price to drop.

I want the price to drop.

Looks to me

like they can't keep it down.

Coming back up again now, after the 3rd hard slam today.
Not recovered to yesterday's levels, but looking like it's trying.

here comes the rebound? This

here comes the rebound? This is a bull run up phase still me thinks. its momentum will not be held back quite yet!

btw - did anyone catch harvey's report on Sprotts PSLV premium to NAV at a whopping 19.3%? if youre not reading this every day youre missing out on a ton of great daily info on the daily reports coming from the comex and other worldly news. follow at
his blog located here.

buy those dips! haha.

UPDATE: i had read last night that some numbers weere coming out today, appears that UI benefit claims fell 20,000k and that numbers show that things are very rosy and getting better! I actually know a peep or two who are now off benefits and are working again... though theyre still living paycheck to paycheck.... Point is, if QE stops, the recovery party crashes too hard - aka it cant stop. QE2 lite to commence this summer, followed by QE3 when things start to look scary again!

holy mama metals are violent

holy mama metals are violent today! i bought at 3am at 34.60 and waited it out while almost securing 150 buck profit ... now it collapsed to 34.12 and it just shot up violently in seconds back to 34.30s ... i picked some up on the bottom so no losses yet =]

i don't think there is any holding on anymore for the fed .. metals are gonna kaboom to the moon soon

Silver is not safe for daytrading.

I is inevitable that after a run up for a few days, the sellers will come on pretty strong.

Over time, you have big gains.

I'd agree to your assessment.

I'd agree to your assessment. You have to consider the cost of commissions also.


correction in progress? 12:36 - silver @ 34.15, gold down big @ 1413.89

must've missed some fresh "good news" from the Bernak...

"Weekly jobless claims fall

"Weekly jobless claims fall to a near 3-year low, to 368K (vs. 400K estimate)." so that's the news. buy the dip.

think bout the cheerleaders for deflation on dp

and what that cost us in campaign contributions for 2012

The dollar

is getting buttraped this morning while precious metals and oil go lower and the DOW/S&P skyrocket...

I just don't get this market sometimes

Thursday morning, stocks up big

One would go absolutely, inconsolably mad if they took the daily whipsaw and gyrations of the market to heart... Just take note and get on with your life. :)

well said mr cheesie! glad

well said mr cheesie! glad that the economic data news helped completely rebound from yesterday :P.

It seems like now is the beginning of the official questioning of future monetary policy, as qe2 only has a few short months left to go. between now and july theres probably gonna be a lot of pump fakes in either direction, but if we do somehow miraculously stop and bernank is crazy enough raise interest rates, we BOTH need to watch the freak out... not that this is the likely scenario...

I have a question

When you invest in stocks, where are you looking to profit from?

Are you more focused on the picking stocks that will have higher valuations in the future or stocks that have good and increasing dividends?

If you choose the second option and take quarterly, semiannual, or annual dividends, what do you do with the proceeds? Cause you have to admit the value of the dollar is going down and the last thing you want to do is hold that cash.

Just wondering.

"A living Constitution is a dead one" -Ron Paul

All strategies are valid and

All strategies are valid and used, but I largely consider myself a value investor. I try to buy "good" companies that are undervalued, which is similar to Warren Buffet's approach, I suppose. I always re-invest the dividends to stay out of cash. My methods are far from foolproof. Just when I think I've got my hands on a winner (apologies to Charlie Sheen) they usually do something stupid. So..... I won't be giving out any specific stock or timing advice since these things have a way of coming back to bite you.

Lastly, I intend to profit far in the future. I'm thinking in 20 year terms, not next week.
