    ‘Germany in a state of SIEGE: Merkel was cheered when she opened the floodgates to migrants. Now, with gangs of men roaming the streets and young German women being told to cover up, the mood’s changing’

      With this mess just growing and growing in Europe it is hard to see how the USD will not continue to rise against the Euro.

          http://www.telegraph.co.uk/comment/3643823/Enoch-Powells-Rivers-of-Blood-speech.html

          “Those whom the gods wish to destroy, they first make mad. We must be mad, literally mad, as a nation ”

          “Those whom the gods wish to destroy they first make mad.”
          Anonymous ancient proverb, wrongly attributed to Euripides. Enoch knew his Classics. A man ahead of his time by far. The speech was delivered on 20 April 1968. Of course, it was seen as racist and Powell has been vilified by the establishment from that moment on – even after his death, by those who happily destroyed his political career.

            Quote:
            ‘The other dangerous delusion from which those who are wilfully or otherwise blind to realities suffer, is summed up in the word “integration.” To be integrated into a population means to become for all practical purposes indistinguishable from its other members.
            Now, at all times, where there are marked physical differences, especially of colour, integration is difficult though, over a period, not impossible. There are among the Commonwealth immigrants who have come to live here in the last fifteen years or so, many thousands whose wish and purpose is to be integrated and whose every thought and endeavour is bent in that direction.
            But to imagine that such a thing enters the heads of a great and growing majority of immigrants and their descendants is a ludicrous misconception, and a dangerous one.
            We are on the verge here of a change. Hitherto it has been force of circumstance and of background which has rendered the very idea of integration inaccessible to the greater part of the immigrant population – that they never conceived or intended such a thing, and that their numbers and physical concentration meant the pressures towards integration which normally bear upon any small minority did not operate.’

            A man in touch with reality made this speech. A man with imagination and knowledge of history. Obviously, he was therefore destined to be hounded from politics by the dastardly, stupid and incompetent colleagues in his midst. Powell was popular with the people: therefore he had to be stopped and put down, ruthlessly – and he was.

            However, his words will resonate through history like a prophecy.

        The immigration issue is part of the New Age agenda. Not a huge surprise in my opinion.

      Read “Uncivilization” by Gregory R. Copley, a book published in 2012, which suggests (among other things) that if Libya, Egypt, Iraq and Syria are destabilized by Obama’s support of the Muslim Brotherhood, then waves of Islamic refugees will cause an invasion of Europe and an Islamicization of Europe more complete than the Moorish invasion into Spain in the Dark Ages.
      Obama is clearly more brilliant and devious than even I anticipated!

      Europe will have a muslim majority within two generations, it appears.

      What a sad consequence for the women of Europe! (Having to live under Islamic repression!)
      (Not to mention homosexuals, for which the penalty under Sharia Law is death!)

        The key phrase in your comment is The Dark Ages but the new dark age is the result of our leaders not the immigrants.

        CFS:

        You need a history lesson unless you are determined to create your own facts. It was actually Israel who advocated “Destabilization” of the middle-east.

        I quote,”Rather than pursuing a “comprehensive peace” with the entire Arab world, Israel should work jointly with Jordan and Turkey to “contain, destabilize, and roll-back” those entities that are threats to all three.”

        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Clean_Break:_A_New_Strategy_for_Securing_the_Realm

        Are you suggesting that Israel not only wants to destroy the Middle-East, but they want to destroy Europe as well?

      It’s supremely ironic that below that article there is an advert:

    IMHO History has NOT proven Doc has been right.

    On the contrary on the BIG MACRO move he was totally wrong.

    When I sounded the alarm several years ago stating GOLD was now entering a bear market after it failed to take out $1800 for the third time his response was he “never saw a bull market end that way”

    His technicals than didn’t spot the HUGE downturn to follow, nor will they spot the huge upturn when it comes.

    They don’t ring bells at tops and bottoms..

    For daily commentary that you can adjust as you go he’s fine.

    The big picture moves however are a whole different story

        I know a couple managers that called all the turns since day one and other then a bear market rally here and the its over. EOS. This is a BEAR MARKET not a correction…
        You have been saying we are in a bull market for a year. That’s funny as hell
        Do you remember I said 4 years ago the DOW would continue to soar. You said. “Gold will go way higher then” How did that work out?

          A cyclical bear within a secular bull is a correction within the secular bull. So it has been both a bear market AND a correction.

            Bill says:

            It would be a correction only in hindsight. I have the utmost respect for my buddy and Hedge Fund manager. His fundamental analysis blow me away. Gold is very iffy.
            We are in a bear market for a long time. This last bull run in gold went so long without a major correction it ruined the market. Without corrections to scare people away its impossible to continue. It ran until I heard the public all around me buying that knew dick about gold. That very things is a great indicator and bringing it to an end with a very high bullish consensus.
            In the 70s few even notice till closer to the end. It went 4 years then had a 50% correction. Looking at the 70s and comparing it today to guess where we are going is ridiculous.
            There are people out there that still think its coming back and for that reason you get your answer.
            My Bud and manager is sick of people asking him. The US economy is doing quite well and that’s where we are. Buying growth companies with nice Dividends.
            Bob said the Bond market was going to crash 5 years ago….LOL
            All that said we do have a minor buy signal on gold…for now…

            Gold is not historically cheap in real terms at the moment but the dollar and debt in general looks ugly so gold can and will rise nominally at the very least.
            I’m sure your buddy deserves respect but even the very best get things wrong. However, if he’s just bearish gold relative to the opportunities that are shaping up in other resources and resource stocks, then I would be more in agreement with him.

            Actually we are not super berish gold. Theres a huge question mark there. We are on the world of shit. It can be a go to at certain times. Way more bearish on other commodities. Just watching closely. I follow a few after doning my own due dilly. We are in uncharted territory. At this point in taking the safe bets I know. Know one know it all id give my left ball for a gold bull. There would be huge returns on the equities.

            You should do a little research before you engage your mouth. The Dow went from 42 in 1932 to 108 a year later. It was the biggest rally in Dow history in that short a period. We were in a depression and it continued for another eight years. It was nothing but a rally in a bear market.

          It wouldn’t be based on any economic logic. When Zimbawe blew up their dollar to the point they needed to print 100 trillion dollar notes, their stock exchange went up in nominal terms but not real terms. If the Fed blows the dollar sky high, the DOW isn’t going up in real terms, only in nominal terms.

          In terms of the DOW, gold has only been lower 3 times in 140 years. Buying gold and selling the DOW would be the percentage bet. The DOW could go up but it was at a record high this year. It it were to go up, you might be paying $25 a gallon for fuel.

            bill:

            If you think Adam Hamilton wrote this just to educate you, he didn’t. But you might want to think about it. You think you can invest using a rear view mirror and I can guarantee you that you cannot. You are married to the DOW in the same way you were married to gold shares and the reason you lost money then and you will lose money now is that you don’t know how to take a profit and want to blame everyone else for your investing mistakes.

            Gold has lapsed deeper into pariahdom this year, becoming the most-hated investment class in all the markets. Traders are avoiding it like the plague, utterly convinced gold is doomed to spiral lower perpetually. But this wildly-bearish psychology is dead wrong. Financial markets are forever cyclical, and gold is no exception to history’s ironclad rule. The best time to be heavily long anything is when few others are.

            Gold’s universal disdain today is the natural result of dismal price action. This precious metal has not seen a new secular high since August 2011, 4.1 years ago. Between that latest bull-market peak and early August 2015, gold fell 42.8% in a brutal secular bear market. With the flagship S&P 500 stock index up 86.8% over that same span, it’s easy to understand why many consider gold the worst investment.

            But gold wasn’t always this way. The greatest mistake investors and speculators make is extrapolating the present out into infinity. They succumb to our innate human tendency to assume the status quo will persist indefinitely. We all do this all the time in our normal lives. When everything is going well, we get euphoric and think good times will last forever. When nothing is working out, we despairingly see a bleak future.

            This present-situation-lasting-perpetually outlook is obviously dead wrong, as life moves in cycles. We will all see good times and bad times, with neither extreme persisting for long. The financial markets work the same way. Just when the vast majority of investors and speculators are convinced that an old trend will be the new norm forever, it reverses. The markets shift and massive countertrend moves get underway.

            Gold itself is a fantastic example of this. Back in the early 2000s as the stock markets soared, gold was considered dead. Investors despised it, and central banks couldn’t dump it fast enough. As the mighty secular stock-market bull peaked in March 2000, gold was around $285. Everyone thought the stock markets were destined to rally forever in a brave new technology-driven era, in which gold was totally obsolete.

            But just as the market status quo seemed unassailable, it crumbled. Market extremes are always the result of excessive greed or fear among traders. And since these emotions are finite and inherently self-limiting, they can’t last. Once everyone who bought stocks high had already deployed their capital, no one else was left to buy. So the astounding prevailing stock greed in the early 2000s burned itself out.

            Meanwhile gold was racked by excessive fear and despair. Everyone who wanted to sell it low had already done so, leaving no one left to sell. So gold’s decades-old secular bear shifted to a powerful new secular bull. Between April 2001 and August 2011, gold skyrocketed 638.2% higher while the S&P 500 lost 1.9%! Gold was the world’s best-performing asset class by far over an entire decade, creating fortunes.

    Allied Nevada Objection To Debtors Plan by Brian Tuttle

      Didn’t read anything about risk assets going through the roof, which is probably why they went bankrupt. Before you can borrow any large amounts of capital, the lender is indemnified with a credit default swap.

    FranSix there is a little more to the story on the Allied Nevada take down.

    There were false statements in press releases and P/R’s . An independent director of Allied and the new CFO put the compnay in debt without hedging an ounce of gold or silver. Scotiabank was hired as an advisor to get a partner for their mill expansion project, at the same time one their analysts put a $0.05 target on their backs while they were looking for partners. They were able to wipe over a billion dollars in 6 months.

    Docket 1051 page 18 of 53

    33. Debtors plan of reorganization is also deficient as the “adjusted Equity Value…is estimated to be in the range of $383,335,000 and $434,280,000” and includes a wide range of unaudited claims.

    This court should take notice the outstanding Notes were originally issued in CAD which is now depressed over 25% to the USD, so the adjusted Equity Value should reflect the present discounted rate as the money is owed in CAD not USD. To put things in prospective, as of September 21, 2015 the spot price per ounce of Gold is over $1500.00 an ounce in CAD giving the inventories just on the leach pad a value of approximately $385 million CAD; enough to pay off the secured debt.

            FranSix they are renaming it Hycroft Mining Corporation. Just yesterday they came out with an ammended plan supplement in the middle of a vote to approve the plan by Oct 2nd.

            Brian Tuttle, along with others filed evidence of wrong doing in briefs supporting the Motion For an Examiner. Some of that same evidence appears in Debtors docket 1018. On page 279 of 299 It states:

            V66 Scotia Capital Inc. has been retained as financial advisor by Allied Nevada Gold Corp. with respect to the Hycroft Mill Expansion. Put another way, Scotiabank’s Trevor Turnbull put a $0.05 share price target on Allied Nevada in December 2014.

            Shareholders and market participants are suppose to believe an honest attempt was made to find a partner or financier for the Hycroft Mill. All this occurred while the stock was one of the highest shorted on the NYSE. Shareholders are not buying the Debtors stories anymore. One shareholder adds what about this:

            “Mill Financing Update

            Throughout the financing process we have received significant interest in the Hycroft mill project, but to date have not secured a path forward. Our progress has been hindered in part by the volatile market and commodity price conditions experienced throughout the year. Given the interest level in the Hycroft mill project and our belief in the compelling economics of the project, we are continuing with the process while we also explore other options to maximize our liquidity and improve the current heap leach operation.” – 8-K, Jan 21st 2015

            Continuing with the process ?
            Allied Nevada’s banker had deserted them as early as Dec 9th, 2014.

            ” We see no reasonable options for Allied Nevada to raise further funds; neither do we expect the company to be able to proceed with its unfunded sulphides project. In October, Allied Nevada released the results of its feasibility study for the Hycroft mill project. Unfortunately, we do not believe that there are any fundraising options for the company to finance the $1+ billion project in this gold price environment.
            Selling a silver stream or royalty, raising more high-interest debt, bringing on a joint venture partner, or issuing equity – apart from the $21.5 million deal announced on December 9 – all appear to be too dilutive to valuation for serious consideration.” –

            If the judge accepts the chapter 11 filing, then it has to proceed, and nobody has any rights except the remaining ownership in the asset during liquidation, which is auctioned and priority assigned to bond holders, meaning bond holders. If you purchased the credit default swap, then you are first in line, since you are the creditor. If the decision is to restructure, then the judge assigns a haircut to all parties.

    You said more than you know, and correctly so when you said you were holding onto your conventional stocks.

    Yes they experience downturns, again as you correctly point out, but they will ultimately come back.

    Over long periods of time real estate and quality stocks trump gold and silver hands down.

    Gold and silver are trades and you need to be right two times, when you buy and when you sell.

    Real estate and quality stocks you just need to be in, period.

    Invest in real estate and or quality stocks and wake up one day 20 years later and you have accumulated a significant sum of wealth.

    Buy gold and silver and 20 years later you could be right back where you started from.

That means they must have open minds and remain flexible. Some of these guys who are too invested in their specialty asset class do not do listeners any favours when the constantly sound the bull horn even during major price declines.

      If we talk about long term, it is really depend on how long and in what period. Currently people may think a few year is long term and economic structure will be always the same. However, in the true long term, even countries and societies disappear and any value attached to an economy will vanish. However, gold will last until everything collapse. There is a thousand year saying in our society “antique for boom time and gold for chaotic time”. I am not saying you are wrong but it is only true in a specific time which is the last few decades and in North America. If you take to the the rest of the world and from historic point of view, it could not be true since most markets either reset or gone. And currencies and stocks which need a host to exist is also gone. However, gold continues regardless. Even in North America, money has gone bust a few times. Your statement could be right or could be wrong depending on the current prosperity continue to develop and unprecedented money printing does not create inflation as it has been in entire human history. At same time, gold should be compared to cash since it is money equivalent. Stocks are investment so they carries risks. When you hold gold in your hands and holding gold in your hand, the comparison is more fair.

    Here is a fundamental or perhaps an Elliott Wave style socioeconomic take regarding the immigrant ‘crisis’.

    At the top of a market bubble the public always jump in with both feet and then they have their money wiped out.

    It is the same then with the movement of people. There is a huge surge of people trying to get into Europe just as it is about to collapse. They may end up in slavery – along with the rest of the European population. The EU might turn into a failed state as a whole.

    Doc commented about the lack of skills in the migrants moving to Europe. Haven’t read anything particular on that subject but I would say this. They are young, healthy, good looking people, mostly well-dressed. I would almost say that they are the cream of the crop in the countries they departed from. They’re ambitious looking and if programs can be put together by the host governments, particularly Germany, to give them a chance, I think the odds are they will surprise many of the pundits. Let’s not forget that Germany has some experience with the absorbing of the whole East Germany and they made it work. Just sayin’.

      This is not ’82 to 2000 and gold spent most of that period in a range not going down. In fact, it remained at 11-12 times the price it started its bull market at for most of that period.
      To say that it will go nowhere for the next 15 years is to say that the dollar won’t either. That is very unlikely to say the least considering the situation.

I do listen to him occasionally to see what he has to offer. At this stage, we have to have an open mind. However, following him is different matter. I remember he was recommending to own as much real estate as possible., A lot of people got burnt. His agent were much worse, at least he recommends to buy real estate for cash flow and his agents taught classes and recommended to own RE for growth. Stupid indeed.

Having celebrated on real ale I don’t even have a hang-over – which is very pleasing – and a Welsh breakfast complete with cockles and lavabread beckons.

      That is a huge change to the short side by the big boys so it looks like they intend to smash the price down again soon. Pump the conventionals and smash the precious metals time again?

      There is a ‘blood Moon’ tonight so perhaps it is a sign of something ominous about to occur in the global markets.

        There is no Federal Reserve gold suppression scheme. Even if there were (unlikely) and the Fed chose to telegraph inflation is coming then don’t you think the price would rise rather than fall? In other words, if the dollar were to be pressed lower in the interests of opening the way to a rate hike then one of the tools to accomplish that would be to have a rising precious metals market. This is a scenario that is probable. Not because it was ordained from above but rather because it is just time. Look at the CRB and other commodity charts. Most are trying to put in bottoms. These are telling us a few things. First, that inflation will rise as commodity prices change direction and secondly that a rate hike is pretty much assured as the opportunity to hike once again becomes tenable. It is my belief that the Fed is waiting for a good signal a turn has arrived before they will risk a rate setting increase and so what we need to watch most carefully is what thee commodity sector as a whole is telling us.

      Doc, as soon as the boat is loaded too heavy one side then the capsize comes. I never worry about such things. A whole lot of short positions just means a lot of traders on the listing side of the ship are going to get wet.

      So what you just told me is good news for gold.

        What’s interesting to me at this time is the volatility—-I believe it could be a signal that gold is working very hard for it’s ultimate bottom. Of course that could last for some time yet but it tells me gold isn’t going to drop appreciatively lower any more. I believe I mentioned above that the price of gold is only now $25 below an inter-week low back in June of 2013. That’s a little less then 21/2 years ago. All the whining we’ve seen over the last 21/2 years and gold has held very steady in a bottoming bowl formation. I believe that’s what we will see as we climb out of the bottom in the future—the other side of that bowl curvilinear pattern as we start to move up.

    Gold “Tightness”: When There’s No More To Sell, There’s No More To Buy (At Any Price)

    Submitted by Chris Martenson via PeakProsperity.com,

    One of our long-running themes here is that the truly historic and massive flows of gold from West to East is (someday) going to stop, for the simple reason that there will be no more physical bullion left to move.

    It’s just a basic supply vs. demand issue. At current rates of flow, sooner or later the West will entirely run out of physical gold to sell to China and India. Although long before that hard limit, we suspect that the remaining holders of gold in the West will cease their willingness to part with their gold.

    So the date at which “the West runs out of gold to sell” is somewhere between now and whenever the last willing Western seller parts with their last ounce. As each day passes, we get closer and closer to that fateful moment.

    This report centers on preponderance of fascinating data revealing the extent of the West’s massive dis-hoarding of physical gold, for the first time, begins to allow us to start estimating the range of end-dates for the flow to the East.

    Here’s the punchline: there’s an enormous and growing disconnect between the cash and physical markets for gold. This is exactly what we would expect to precede a major market-shaking event based on a physical gold shortage.

    Stopping the Flows

    There are only two outcomes that will stop the process of Western gold flowing East, one illegitimate and the other legitimate.

    It becomes illegal to sell gold. This is the favored approach of central planners who prefer to force change by dictate rather than via free markets and free will. Unfortunately, this strain of political intervention is dominant in the West, particularly in the US and EU.
    The price of gold dramatically rises. A large increase in the price of gold will (paradoxically) cause greater demand for gold in the West and (sensibly) less demand in the East. This is what should legitimately happen given current supply and demand dynamics. But it may not.
    There’s always a 3rd option, we suppose: economically carpet-bombing China and India’s financial systems to scare/force some gold back out. Consider such an approach along the ‘economic hitman’ lines of thinking.

    This would be done, for example, by having outside interests sell the Rupee furiously, driving down its value and forcing the Indian monetary authorities to defend it by using up foreign reserves to buy the Rupee. Then wait for India to run out of foreign reserves and then casually ‘suggest’ that its government use gold sales to continue defending its currency. India’s leaders would have to find ways to somehow ‘coax’ gold from its citizens. I think we can all imagine the sorts of draconian rules and penalties that desperate governments would deploy in such a situation.

    As a side note, I believe this is the same process that was used to ‘coax’ a lot of gold out of the GLD trust since 2012. After enough bear raids on the price of gold, which began somewhat suspiciously almost exactly on the date that QE3 was announced, Western gold ‘investors’ lost interest in the yellow metal, sold their GLD shares in droves, and hundreds of tons of gold were liberated from that stockpile.

    What is truly odd from a chart perspective: this hammering down of gold started just after it had broken to the upside out of a textbook perfect triangle, when it looked seemingly ready to head off to higher values:

    But in the days immediately following the QE3 announcement, gold shed $100, then barely recovered, and just wandered lower until it was violently slammed from $1550 to $1350 over one night (of course) in April 2013.

    Now this was highly fortuitous for the ever-lucky Federal Reseve. After launching the largest money printing campaign in US history, the Fed did not need gold heading any higher, possibly providing a signal that would cast doubt on the wisdom or possible effectiveness of its easy-money policies. Policies, mind you, that the years since have proven to do little more than enrich the banker class and the 0.1%, as well as lard the system with extraordinary levels of new indebtedness and liquidity.

    The Fed Indeed Cares About Gold

    Gold, when unfettered, has a habit of sending signals that the Fed really doesn’t like. Therefore the Fed is at the top of everyone’s suspect list when it comes to wondering who might be behind the suspicious gold slams. Whether the Fed does it directly is rather doubtful; but they have a lot of useful proxies out there in their cartel network.

    To reveal the extent to which gold sits front and center in the Fed’s mind, and how they think of it, here’s an excerpt from a 1993 FOMC meeting’s full transcript. Note that the full meeting notes from Fed meetings are only released years after the fact. The most recent ones available are only from 2009. Listen to what this FOMC voting member had to say about gold:

    At the last meeting I was very concerned about what commodity prices were doing. And as you know, they got lucky again and told us that the rate of inflation was higher than we thought it was.

    Now, I know there’s nothing to it but they did get lucky. I’ve had plenty of econometric studies tell me how lucky commodity prices can get. I told you at the time that the reason I had not been upset before the March FOMC meeting was that the price of gold was well behaved.

    But I said that the price of gold was moving. The price of gold at that time had moved up from 328 to 344, and I don’t know what I was so excited about! I guess it was that I thought the price of gold was going on up. Now, if the price of gold goes up, long bond rates will not be involved.

    People can talk about gold’s price being due to what the Chinese are buying; that’s the silliest nonsense that ever was. The price of gold is largely determined by what people who do not have trust in fiat money system want to use for an escape out of any currency, and they want to gain security through owning gold.

    A monetary policy step at this time is a win/win. I don’t know what is going to happen for sure. I hope Mike is correct that the rate of inflation will move back down to 2.6 percent for the remaining 8 months of this calendar year. If we make a move and Mike is correct, we could take credit for having accomplished this and the price of gold will soon be down to the 328 level and we can lower the fed funds rate at that point in time and declare victory.
    (Source – Fed)
    There it is, in black and white from an FOMC member’s own mouth spelling out the primary reason why I hold gold: I lack faith in our fiat money system. He nailed it. Or rather, I have very great faith that the people managing the money system will print too much and ultimately destroy it. Same thing, said differently.

    And of course the people at the Fed are acutely aware of gold’s role as a barometer of people’s faith in ‘fiat money.’ Of course they track it very carefully, discuss it, and worry about it when it is sending ‘the wrong signals.’ I would, too, if in their shoes.

    The Federal Reserve Note (a.k.a. the US dollar) is literally nothing more than an idea. It has no intrinsic value. America’s money supply is just digital ones and zeros careening about the planet, accompanied by a much smaller amount of actual paper currency. The last thing an idea needs is to be exposed as fraudulent. Trust is everything for a currency — when that dies, the currency dies.

    The other thing you can note from these FOMC minutes is that gold pops up 19 times in the conversation. The Fed members are are actively and deliberately discussing its price, role in setting interest rates, and the psychological impact of a rising or falling gold price.

    Later in that same meeting Mr. Greenspan says:

    My inclination for today–and I’m frankly most curious to get other people’s views–would be to go to a tilt toward tightness and to watch the psychology as best we can. By the latter I mean to watch what is happening to the bond market, the exchange markets, and the price of gold…

    I have one other issue I’d like to throw on the table. I hesitate to do it, but let me tell you some of the issues that are involved here. If we are dealing with psychology, then the thermometers one uses to measure it have an effect. I was raising the question on the side with Governor Mullins of what would happen if the Treasury sold a little gold in this market.

    There’s an interesting question here because if the gold price broke in that context, the thermometer would not be just a measuring tool. It would basically affect the underlying psychology. Now, we don’t have the legal right to sell gold but I’m just frankly curious about what people’s views are on situations of this nature because something unusual is involved in policy here. We’re not just going through the standard policy where the money supply is expanding, the economy is expanding, and the Fed tightens. This is a wholly different thing.
    The recap of all this is that the Fed watches the price of gold carefully, frets over whether the price of gold is ‘sending the right signals’ to market participants, and pays attention to gold’s impact on market psychology (with an eye to controlling it).

    In short, the Fed keeps a close eye on the “golden thermometer”.

    Back to the supply story for gold. Not long after gold began its downward price movement in 2012, the GLD trust began coughing up a lot of gold, eventually shedding more than 500 tonnes; a truly massive amount.

    (Source)

    In my mind, the absolute slamming of gold in 2013 was done by a few select entities and represents one of the clearest cases of price manipulation on the recent record. While we can debate the reasons ‘why’ gold was manipulated lower or ‘who’ did it, to me, there’s no question about how it was done. Or that it was done.

    Massive amounts of paper gold were dumped into a thin overnight market with the specific intent of driving down the price of gold.

    It’s an open and shut case of price manipulation. Textbook perfect.

    Even if these bear raids were performed by self-interested parties that made money while doing it, you can be sure the Fed was smiling thankfully in the background and that the SEC wasn’t going to spend one minute looking into whether any securities laws were broken (especially those related to price manipulation). Gold’s falling “thermometer” was exactly what the central planners wanted the world to see.

    Down and Out

    The paper markets for gold are centered in the US, while the physical market for gold is centered in London (but increasingly Shanghai). It’s safe to say that the paper markets set the spot price, while the physical movement of gold originates in London.

    What’s increasingly obvious is the growing disconnect between the paper and physical markets. This is exactly what we’d expect to see if the paper markets were pushing in one direction (down) while physical gold was heading in a different direction (out).

    The tension between these ‘down and out’ movements is building and, according to a senior manager of one of the largest gold refineries in the world located in Switzerland, the current price of gold “has no correlation to the physical market.”

    He notes a lot of on-going tightness in the physical market. Unsurprisingly, gold is moving from West to East with vaults in London supplying much of the physical metal that’s being refined into fresh kilo bars and sent off to China and India.

    But given the astonishing amount of physical demand, why has the price of gold been heading steadily lower over the past several years?

    The aforementioned Swiss refiner is equally perplexed:

    If I am honest, the only thing I could share now with you would be that I’m perplexed about the discrepancy between the prices and the situation of the physical market. This is something I still do not understand and is a riddle for me every day. For all people who are interested in precious metals, the physical side of this business should be given more emphasis.
    (Source – Transcript)
    There’s no mystery as to demand going up in China and India as the price went down. Interested buyers will buy more at a lower price.

    But its a big mystery as to why Western “investors” seem more interested in selling gold than buying it right now.

    Evidence of Physical Tightness

    Besides the first-hand experience of the Swiss refiner, there have been numerous stories in the main stream press also pointing to tightness in the London physical gold market as well as relentless demand from China and India being the driver of that condition:

    Gold demand from China and India picks up
    Sep 2, 2015

    London’s gold market is showing tentative signs of increased demand for bullion from consumers in emerging markets, after the price of the precious metal fell to its lowest level in five years in July.

    The cost of borrowing physical gold in London has risen sharply in recent weeks. That has been driven by dealers needing gold to deliver to refineries in Switzerland before it is melted down and sent to places such as India, according to market participants.

    “[The rise] does indicate there is physical tightness in the market for gold for immediate delivery,” said Jon Butler, analyst at Mitsubishi.

    The move comes as Indian gold demand picked up in July, with shipments of gold from Switzerland to India more than trebling. Most of that gold is likely to originally come from London before it is melted down into kilobars by Swiss refineries, according to analysts.

    In the first half of this year, total recorded exports of gold from the UK were 50 per cent higher than the first half of 2014, on a monthly average basis, according to Rhona O’Connell, head of metals for GFMS at Thomson Reuters. More than 90 per cent was headed for a combination of China, Hong Kong and Switzerland.

    London remains the world’s biggest centre for trading and storing gold.
    (Source)
    Shipments and exports are up very strongly and nearly all of that gold is headed to just two countries; China and India.

    India Precious Metals Import Explosive – August Gold 126t, Silver 1,400t
    Sept 10, 2015

    In the month of August 2015, India imported 126 tonnes of gold and 1,400 tonnes of silver, according to data from Infodrive India. Gold import into India is rising after a steep fall due to government import restrictions implemented in 2013.

    Year-to-date India has imported 654 tonnes of gold, which is 66 % up year on year. 6,782 tonnes in silver bars have crossed the Indian border so far this year, up 96 % y/y.

    Gold import is set to reach an annualized 980 tonnes, which would be up 26 % relative to 2014 and would be the second highest figure on (my) record – my record goes back to 2008.

    Silver import is on track to reach an annualized 10,172 tonnes, up 44 % y/y! This would be a staggering 37 % of world mining.
    (Source)
    With China and India’s combined appetite for gold being higher than total world mining output, it only stands to reason that somebody has to be parting with their physical gold and those entities appear to be substantially located in the US and UK.

    When There’s No More To Sell, There’s No More To Buy

    All the above evidence of a tightening physical market for gold is just the tip of the iceberg.

    In Part 2: Why Gold Is Headed Higher & May Be Unavailable At Any Price we look at the frightening inventory declines in bullion storage that the LBMA and the COMEX have experienced over the past year.

    We then lay out how this deliberate suppression of gold prices by the central planners is destined to end: with MUCH higher prices for gold, and much less availability. In fact, there is high likelihood we will experience a point at which it may be nearly impossible for the average investor to acquire physical gold, as there will be no sellers willing to part with it.

      When the DOW crash it was a buy way back. The central banks and corporation are not joined at the hip.
      When a recession occurs corporations slash and trash the excesses and get far more lean and mean. That’s called increasing margins. THATS why stocks go up.
      The fact that there was so much fear for years and there were people selling it….there was heaps of cash on the sidelines to power that market. Then there the capital flows from other countries that are seeking safety. Nothings changed other then expectations got ahead of themselves.
      I’m sure as hell not married to anything. If Gold stock index’s actually turn up Ill be buying with both hands. Theres many things I see that are positive for the US and here’s another…where you going to go?
      “We believe China is in a recession for a number of reasons, one of which being that wages have increased substantially over the past few years and
      the manufacturing cost advantage that China once had is arguably now gone. As a result, jobs are moving back to the U.S., Mexico, Vietnam and
      so on. Since 2008, China has overbuilt its manufacturing capacity and increased its debt substantially as a % of GDP. Although China has a lot of
      foreign currency reserves, we think that they will eventually deplete them (roughly 500 billion dollars gone so far). In our opinion, China’s current
      problems will continue to have a negative effect on the rest of the world but particularly on emerging markets, commodities and currencies. ”

      So much for the super cycle for commodities…and at point there will these people that are in trouble that will be net sellers of gold…When the going gets tough and you need cash…everything must go!

        I never know Kiyosaki promotes gold as a way of investing or I may have missed it. I thought he was promoting real estate for cash flow, which he seems always mention about these words. Gold is without cash flow. He did say he is a gold bug who accumulating gold and silver since 1960s for insurance, if I remember correctly. But that is not investing. I think most of his talks seem to be in real estate or buy oil wells or something. Maybe I should have listened to him more closely. However, to be fair, I do know people who follow him as religion. Some got fairly rich. I don’t know personally someone who is broke yet since real estate has not crushed in Canada.

    Use to talk with James Fox head of sales all the time ( good dude ) and was invited to their elbow rubbing sessions. They were small firm a few funds and knocked the cover off the ball on a ongoing basis.
    Then Eric was more interested in building a brand and lost his way. I sold all out 8 years ago. Poor performance on too many funds. Many have gone from hero to zero. Nobody is infallible. I personally hate the markets but have no chioce at this time while looking at stupid priced realestate. Never sell a good commercial business with lots if land. My bad.

    Jim Grant Explains How To Hedge Against The Coming Money Paradrop
    Submitted by Tyler Durden on 09/26/2015 – 22:03
    “This is a monetary moment… we are looking at the beginning of the world’s reappraisal of the words and deeds of central bankers like Janet Yellen and Mario Draghi. You see monetary disorder manifested in super low interest rates, in the mispricing of credit broadly and you see it in the escalation of radical monetary nastrums that are floating out of the various central banks and established temples of thought: Negative real rates, negative nominal rates and the idea of helicopter money. So you need some hedge against things not going according to the script and that makes gold and gold mining equities terrifically interesting now.”

    Chinese officials encouraged investors to pour more money into thier stock market. They handed out $20bill plus to 20firms from a new stabilizeation fund. These are desperate measure and are sure to fail. Why would they be so concerned? They are running out of tools to keep the bubble economy going. If this all goes down the shoot their realestate may be on the chopping block next. Thats one last thing thats has not suffered large losses. Many are highly leveraged there. That loss in confedence would crimp the. Consumer even more and their hope was that they would be the ones to keep their economy rolling. Other countries are buy alot less product from China now.

    Read some Middle East news with interest (I barely care about the region before the oil price collapsed 🙂 ). Now it may be a major turn point in Middle East geopolitical balance and it even leads to a war among major powers. China is said to be entering to the Syria war on the Russian side. There also seems to a brilliant ploy on the Russian/Iran side to change the map in the Iraq, Saudi and Kurdish areas. US will not sit there watching. It has to choose side. As I know the leadership in China, they don’t make decision lightly. Once decision is made, it will last. With luck or with its resource for war, China has been always on the winning side when world powers collide, from first world war, second world war, Korean war, Vienam war and USSR/Afgan war. It looks like that at least the Administration’s Middle East policy is under serious attack.

    ” We find it interesting that most people want the price of oil to go up. We hear from a lot of investors, oil comp
    say that the price of oil will rise again, as it always does. We see many sell-side brokerage firms and oil comp
    ($60- $75 per barrel) for the next few years. Suncor, for example, recently stated that they invest for a 15% return
    It’s interesting because prior to 2003, we remember everybody saying that oil would stay around $18 forever. “

      Yes, every time when oil rises over 100, most people will target 120, 140, even GS did it. When it is down 60%, people start to talk about $20, GS did it again. Pathetic. If we get a supply demand chart, you will see that demand has been going up even in the oil crash except shortly in 2008. It is Saudi and US sharp production rise which crashed the price, I am sure Wall Street did its usual trick. Due to my working in oil business, I know people who work in Saudi Arabia. They double the drilling shortly after Ukraine issue broke out. This results in 1.5 million bbl a day output. At same time US shale went insane with debt borrowing. But Saudi is facing wars and shale cannot last, we see bankruptcies already. Shale oil is too expensive at this price.

            New technology came along and killed the price of Natgas then oil splattered…He didn’t see it coming and he was very good…
            Markets are a crap shoot. If you can sift through the data and see the real economic number you can make safer bets. This is not the time to be a cowboy…leave that to Bob LOL.

            That fund manager did not do his research. There are a few reasons why Nat Gas will stays low. First gas producers are chasing liquids to survive so gas is produced as by-product at a loss. Second, shale producers are producing large amount of gas to get shale oil. They will release the gas to the air if it is allowed. Gas is continental so there is no where to sell extra gas and hard to store. US does not allow energy export. Unless these problems get solved, gas will stay low.

            BTW, food inflation in Canada is huge. My sister in law runs a restaurant and she had to sell it since price of meat increased by 40% and 60% two years in a row. My wife complains about rising food price and saying they are becoming hard to swallow. She complains and I have to hear. Did you see the super small cans of coke lately ~200 ml? They make me large.

    This post is an excerpt from a recent TSI commentary.

    Excited talk of a silver shortage has made its annual reappearance. This talk is always based on anecdotal evidence of silver coins or small bars being difficult to obtain in some parts of the world via retail coin dealers. It never has anything to do with the overall supply situation.

    Shortages of silver and gold in certain manufactured forms favoured by the public will periodically arise, often because of a sudden and unanticipated (by the mints) increase in the public’s demand for these items. Furthermore, the increase in the public’s demand is often a reaction to a sharp price decline, the reason being that in the immediate aftermath of a sharp price decline the metals will look cheap regardless of whether they are actually cheap based on the fundamental drivers of value.

    These periodic shortages of bullion in some of the manufactured forms favoured by the public are not important considerations when assessing future price potential. The main reason is that the total volume of metal purchased by the public in such forms is a veritable drop in the market ocean. For example, the total worldwide volume of silver in coin form purchased by the public in a YEAR is less than the amount of silver that changes hands via the LBMA in an average trading DAY.

    A final point worth making on this topic is that the claims of silver or gold shortages that periodically spring-up are not only misguided, they are dangerous. This relates to the fact that the most popular argument against gold and silver recapturing their monetary roles is that there isn’t enough of the stuff to go around. The gold and silver enthusiasts who cry “major shortage!” whenever it temporarily becomes difficult to buy coins from the local shop are therefore effectively supporting the case AGAINST the future use of gold and silver as money. You see, a critical characteristic of money is that obtaining it is always solely a question of price.

        NASA site:

        “The moon does not make its own light; it reflects light it receives from the sun. During a lunar eclipse, the moon appears less and less bright as sunlight is blocked by the Earth’s shadow. As totality approaches, sunlight reaches the moon indirectly and is refracted around the “edges” of Earth, through Earth’s atmosphere. Because of this, almost all colors except red are “filtered” out, and the eclipsed moon appears reddish or dark brown. This filtering is caused by particulates in our atmosphere; when there have been a lot of fires and/or volcanic eruptions, lunar eclipses will appear darker and redder. This eerie — but harmless — effect has earned the phenomenon the nickname “blood moon.”

    I think the people speculating that Janet Yellen is soon going to be replaced as head of the Fed are probably right. That would be the obvious answer to the markets who have become confused recently over the lack of conviction in establishing a rate cycle increase. And it is not that Janet did anything wrong. But like all major institutions (including political parties), one of the most effective ways to change public perceptions is to change the leader. The idea is to improve confidence and create a sense of certainty. A change at the top would probably be greeted enthusiastically at this point if only because Janet’s style has left markets feeling cold and a little confused about the efficiency of Fed policy making. We will see, but my sense tells me that Mrs Yellen may have no choice but too retire due too signs of ill health.

It was not only that it landed on the Jewish holiday of Sukkot which started yesterday and runs until October 4 this year but this is also the date of the finding of the true cross celebrated in some Orthodox churches. The story goes that Queen Helena went to Israel in the year 326 and located remnants of the cross used to crucify Christ. Fragments were dispersed to important churches in different countries and the event is still celebrated in Ethiopia where it is claimed one arm of that cross is stored and still venerated there. No doubt you are more familiar with the story than I am Andrew. I just thought it interesting to mention.

    So anyway, the blood moon came and went. I counted all the important bits and they are still there so life will go on. No asteroids (yet)….and the Cern reactor did not send us to another dimension as predicted by too many.

    Looks like the world will carry on for another day.

    We still have big speeches by the President of China and by Putin this week before the General Assembly. Putin’s last major interaction with the West was the Sochi Olympics of course. And days later there was an invasion of the Crimea.

    Hopefully this week there won’t be any similar follow up of trouble once he goes back to Russia but by the looks of it Syria will be on the discussion board and Putin looks intent on supporting Assad militarily and assuring Russian regional dominance in that small part of the world.

    They won’t be giving up Tartus without a fight by the looks of it and short of being forced out in a shooting war (100% not going to happen) then only a Syrian regime change will make that happen. Clearly, Putin must destroy ISIL and the resistance forces opposing Assad before those groups send the Syrian dictator packing if he has any hope of clinging to the port there.

    What is interesting is just how determined he is to hold the ground. But how far will he go? Will Russian forces confront Saudi Arabia, Turkey or Israel for example? And with the French air force there bombing targets then how long before we see conflicts over airspace.

    The situation is already out of hand as it is but the US and Europe seem determined to rout Bashar and have him replaced by someone with more of a pro-Western viewpoint (which is by default not a bias favoring Russia).

    One thing that is not in doubt though is that a proxy war between superpowers could break out at anytime and none of us should look forward to that day. Neither will it be the first time this has happened in the region.

    Back in 1979 there was a face-off between Syria and Israel for air supremacy over the Golan. But as it turned out this was really an air battle between the newer model MIG’s and F16’s. Call it a demonstration of technologies with Russia on the one side and the US on the other.

    All the MIG’s were shot down and Russian pilots found to be at the controls. Big surprise. Anyway, this time there is going to be no allusions about who is flying the newer equipment. What remains to be seen is who shoots at who first and which technology comes out ahead in the Middle Eastern proving grounds.

    Glencore Implodes: Stock Plunges Most Ever, CDS Blow Out To Record Up On Equity Wipeout Fears
    Submitted by Tyler Durden on 09/28/2015 – 07:20
    Update: And there it is: GLENCORE DEBT INSURANCE COSTS SURGE TO RECORD HIGH; 5-YR CREDIT DEFAULT SWAPS RISE 154 BASIS POINTS FROM FRIDAY’S CLOSE TO 708 BASIS POINTS

    Those who listened to our reco to buy Glencore CDS at 170 bps in March 2014 can take the rest of the year off. As of this moment, GLEN Credit Default Swap were pushing on 600 bps, 4 times wider, and on pace to take out the 2011 liquidity crunch highs. After that, it’s smooth sailing to all time wides and the start of a self-fulfilling prophecy which leads to the Companys’s IG downgrade and the collapse of trillions in derivative notionals as what may be the trading desk of the biggest commodity counterparty quietly goes out of business.

      We don’t yet know the half of it Agatha but we do know a little and this is BIG trouble as there is some 90 billion of debt exposure to Glencore amongst a long list of banks which includes the tottering Deutsche Bank.

      Who knows, this may be the company that sets off the derivatives nightmare that so many have discussed in the past as Glencore unwinds triggering a derivatives and counter-party crisis.

      Banks with exposure to the deals that merged Glencore and Xtrata back in 2012 include ANZ Banking Group, Banco Santander, Barclays Bank, BBVA, Citigroup, Commerzbank, Commonwealth Bank of Australia, Credit Agricole CIB, Deutsche Bank, HSBC, JP Morgan, Lloyds TSB Bank, Mizuho Bank, National Australia Bank, Royal Bank of Canada, Royal Bank of Scotland, Standard Chartered, Toronto Dominion Bank and Westpac.

      Its a who’s who list of the worlds biggest and nobody will escape a Glencore collapse unscathed. Maybe this is what the blood moon was telling us. Or maybe this is Armstrong’s 2015.75 turn date. Whatever it is none of its good and we should all be VERY cautious for the next while. If another financial crisis is coming we are all going to feel it. So we should watch the overnight interbank lending rates again as those were our warning the last time around and no doubt will be on the rise again.

      Here is the story of the 2012 Xtrata / Glencore merger for a refresher. The shit is about to hit the fan…..

      Oh hello Agatha. I was wondering where everyone was this morning. Judging by the tomb like silence I cannot be the only one losing money today. The good news (if there can be any)is that the CRB Index looks very much like it will do a second retest of its long term lows at 185 which means it may post a very solid double bottom. That remains to be seen of course but I retain some level of optimism despite a bloody red day…..
