Al's Insights – Sun 24 Jul, 2016

Big Al’s comments on the comments?

I have read about one hundred of the  comments as I am waiting for my family to come down for breakfast. 

Jake, in the past, did you have a restaurant called Green Lake Jakes?

Really great comments folks.

With the average intelligence shown here, I am so proud of this site. Cory has a great venue to work with as do I.

Thank you all!

    Thanks, for all you work, Big Al.
    I appreciate it.

    I will, however, stop posting, because I believe the signal to noise level has dropped too low.
    This is due to repetitive posts by people like trader Jake, which, in my opinion are simply too repetitive, contributing noise, not information.

    Wishing you and yours my best wishes.

      Sorry to hear that CFS. If I say CSF, will you scold me with hot water
      like several days ago.

      Just like everyone who said they would never return like you said many
      times in the past are here today posting. In fact JTL, bless his heart was
      back posting a few days ago after no more than a week said he would
      never return. Nothing against him. The list is long.

      CFS, your political views are so repetitive that its remarkable how you
      can even find the time. Hundreds and maybe thousands every week.

      Appreciate your double standards.

      Wish you the best !

      Don’t leave CFS. This site wouldn’t be the same without you. God has put us together for the duration. That is why this site reminds me of Noah’s ark: stinky, noisy, turbulent, demanding, uncertain, and way better than being buried by a mountain of watery sediments.

        That’s “Don’t leave, CFS.” I forgot the comma in the previous post. One comma can make all the difference.

      Agreed. Longer term it always sorts itself out, because believe it or not, some people do give a dang and post quality content.

      Thanks Big Al & Cory for all you do. Same to Rick Ackerman, Chris Temple, and Doc Postma and all the special guests that invest their time with us here on the KER.

      Good luck to everyone in their investing.

            Are you kidding me freak show? You have spilled thousands of words this week and invoked my name more times than I can recall in a barrage of posts that are so obsessive about me they border on insane and now you wonder why Jesus is being called on?

            I have honestly never seen anything like it before actually (except from you in two similar performances in the past). And all because you did not appreciate my short discussion with another poser (LPG) which was not even your business.

            What you are doing would not be allowed on any website of this kind on the internet and its actually pretty shocking that Cory allows you to continue with the tirade day after day. I suspect the only reason its tolerated is because you contribute as much as 50% of all the posts here but holy shit man… it ever low quality material you produce.

            Just copy-and-paste lists plus plenty of abuse for myself, Jake and bb and anyone else who gets in your way. Have you considered getting away from the computer for awhile and getting exercise or something? Maybe walk to the 7-11 for a change next time you need a Donut.

            Birdman, this week you pulled the first punches (like normal during your Nevsun nonsense), and continued to get into altercations with myself, Matthew, LPG, and Bob M. Next week it will be whoever else you feel like bullying.

            Birdman you have had a chronic habit of trolling, insulting, antagonizing, other posters for years. Get real man.

            Look up above, I post appreciation for the team that puts this show together and you have to come and crap all over the blog again with negativity, judgment, and insults. Who do you think you are to judge for everyone what sees as valuable?

            I post press releases from mining companies and relevant articles, so yes, they have to be cut & pasted because I didn’t write the articles Einstein. I know you may not have interest, because they actually deal with investing in the resource sector and that doesn’t appear to be something you do, except for when you were promoting to buy the ETF (DUST) during one of the biggest rallies in Gold miners that we’ve had in years. Maybe if you had read some of my posts you would have made some money honey.

            Looks like you may need to crawl away again into the shadows or change your name back to A Listener or Farmer in Canada (like the last few times you were chased off the blog for chronic abuse).

            Who is always at the scene of the crime when there is drama = Birdman

            Who agitated Gary Savage (more than Avi) to the point of him packing up and leaving the site for good = Birdman {and Gary mentioned you by name multiple times on this blog as one of the primary reasons he left the site}

            Who threatened to sue the host of our show Big Al ? = Birdman

            Who has had more comments deleted on the KER for the vulgarity, insults, name calling, and general aggressive nature towards multiple posters = Birdman

            ** So why should any of us give a damn what you think?

            ** Can you see why you’ve lost all respect here Birdman?

            – It’s a terrible track record of abuse and negativity on the blog. I’m done taking your crap and having you bully everyone on here.

            I invite anyone to go back and simply look at Friday’s blog at how childish and combative Birdman is. He immediately was the aggressor, and like ususal, started attacking a perfectly normal conversation between CFS & I. Give us all a break from your bulls#@t.

            BTW – Birdman, I’m fairly sure your antics on Friday and this weekend with Trader Jake are the final straw for most posters here. You both have completely destroyed all the good discussions on mining stocks and the resource sector on the KER once again.

            I’m done taking the abuse and would rather not post that deal with the insults and hostility. Enjoy your final mission of destroying this blog for everyone.

            TJ/ Heavy Hitter – If you think anyone enjoys your posts on here, or if you think repeatedly warning everyone of the end of the world you are sadly mistaken.

            If you think posters want to see Birdman attack and argue with half the posters on here or the constant bickering he engages in with myself, Matthew, LPG, Bob M. , Dick Tracy, and anyone else he feels like bullying, then you are sadly mistaken.

            I’m not interested in furthering this discussion with you any further, but don’t worry, I’ll leave you and Birdman to finish your destruction of the blog with your negativity. I’m done with you 2 trolls and think it is sad how you’ve degraded the site from once educational and fun place to absolute garbage.

        Shad/Ex., you replied to my post on the W.E. forum and
        it’s on a very long thread.

        I don’t share your compassion for paper gold. That’s never
        going to change. I will not get into all the specifics. The most
        part, it’s been posted why and the reason it’s toxic garbage.

        Nonetheless, if you believe in it, be my guest. Your financial
        losses have no affect on me.

        In your reply, you indicated that all comments should reflect
        positive outlooks and be an optimist.

        Excuse me. You sure are persistent making sure everyone licks
        up to your optimism.

        Don’t think for a split second I’m follower of your cult in here. Or
        whatever agenda you have crafted. I will not change in representing
        the truth for anyone and that includes you.

        I need to be firm now because we have discussed this and now you
        want to wash my brains. Think blue skies and Pie in the sky.

        Couldn’t be further from the truth the environment and economic
        calamities that are in our near future.

        Please, take your fantasies and dreams and leave me out of it.

        And don’t approach me with your ideas ever again.

        Thank you !!

            You are insulting Birdmans comments as end of the world.
            So what if it is. Mind your own business Shad.

            It’s not up to you to discriminate posts. Its all regarding

            Birdman can post anything he likes. Nothing you can do
            about it. I really was grateful for all of his efforts and due
            diligence with his commentary. You come along and insult.
            After all the time he spent.

            WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE ?

            You need to stop and cease and desist with all the screaming
            old nanny charade that’s inherit now in your character.

            I’m totally against what your doing. You’re now on notice.

            You are not going to interfere with important commentaries
            as to the tragic shape the world is in.

            TJ – Disagreeing is fine. Everyone having their own point of view is and always has been fine with me and with most anyone. That has never been the issue, and nobody on here thinks the same way about everything, nor would anyone expect or even enjoy a world where everyone was in perpetual agreement.
            * It is the lack of respect, the insults, the antagonizing, and the crapping all over other people’s posts that is an issue, and has been a chronic issue for years with certain posters.
            — > Need I remind you that this thread was started by a simple exchange with CFS and I about the environment of nuclear energy, the benefits of Beryllium-coated Uranium pellets, and the potential advantages of Thorium powered nuclear plants.
            That wasn’t something Birdman knew anything about so he had to come along and leave one of his bird droppings. He looks for ways to be irritating and that is not a contribution, it’s a detriment to the site. It would have been better if Birdman could just be civil and keep his beak out of other people’s posts if he is not going to contribute in a positive way.
            ★★★Eventually this thread turned into an end of the world thread. Again, this is the Korelin ECONOMICS Report, not the Koreline End-Of-The-World Report.
            TJ/HH – I understand your passion to warn everyone, and maybe that was Birdman’s intent with his Megaphone chart about the coming implosion of all things. Those comments are a bit over the top for an investment forum focused on the resource sector. They would also be over the top on any other blog with a different focus like a car racing blog, bird-watching blog, or cooking recipe blog.★★★ There are, however, other websites that cater to those discussions that would be far more appropriate than a site focused investing in the resource sector .
            As for ignoring posts and scrolling past them if you aren’t interested, I’ve always advocated such and have to do just that quite often on here to get past much of the blather. If only certain posters could simply scroll past a list of stocks that have been picked to highlight a subsector of miners, or area play, or the weighting & holdings inside a particular ETF….. if they are too lazy to follow up on these ideas or disagree.
            Again, the problem has never been people with differing points of view, it is the appropriateness of the comments relative to investing or the antagonizing, insulting attack posts, that serve no value here.
            I also wish you well TJ and hope you have a great weekend. Keep you chin up man and let’s spend a little more time on the great things humanity does, the innovations, break through, the fact that most people anywhere are kind and love their families, and don’t like conflict.

            You are talking to a machine Jake. Excelsior is not actually human. It is a Bot created in Microsoft Labs and designed to drive every mortal person off this site and others like it by employing a wide variety of blunt tactics that are purely machine generated code. It has no feelings by the way. Like a woman, it cannot be reasoned with because the program is designed to carry double standards and maintain otherwise impossible conflicts for far longer than normal humans can tolerate. So it will wear you down day after day with completely pointless and uncalled for material until you give up. You need more Jesus to fight it.

            LPG, provoked all this turmoil and then Shad picks up the ball
            and decides this is an opportunity to condemn someone.

            Unfortunately, that was you Birdman. I sincerely believe you
            did not change your analysis that we are in a new bull market.
            It was a euphoric moment gold catapulted and flew to the

            So there is a lot of guilty parties who should have never taken
            part in these false accusations but they did.

            Shad has been one of the parties doing more damage than good
            now and probably believes he is still a hero. However, there is no
            benefits to pursuing this, because you were innocent.

            Shad needs to realize that and he is not in authority position to
            discriminate comments/posts.

            With that being said, this should correct itself and everyone should
            feel free to post on the forums that is related to economics, politics
            and anything else that affects investments including the end of the
            world. So be it and if the evidence supports it.

            Thank you for the analysis on the weekend show forum and also to B
            as well. We do have a serious crisis in the pipeline and to ignore it like
            we discussed would be ignorantly foolish and idiotic to say the least.

            Lets all continue with the current state of affairs and get past this.

            Those posts this past week were utterly bizarre, Jake. They were way over the top relative to what I had said in response to LPG. So it did not bother me so much personally but rather made me really wonder about the state of Excelsior’s mind since he seems to have come unglued over pretty much nothing. As far as I can tell he ruined the entire weeks shows with all that negativity and the way he drew so many other people into a conflict that was rather pointless.

            What is his agenda? Is it just to get attention? He sure looked bad in the process.

            He strikes me as a wannabe and a hack but of course that is strictly my personal feelings and maybe it is a little colored due to his bizarre approach and obsessiveness with me. I should be flattered by all the attention but honestly it gets so tiring and the whole site is off topic as a result.

            Notice by the way that not a single one of my detractors bothered to answer my post about that amazing S&P 500 earnings chart? They will spill their guts on the tiniest of online slights and then turn around and discard a great topic out of spite.

            That could be costly. That earnings megaphone pattern might just be the best chart I have ever come across and as far as I know nobody has else has ever brought it to the sites attention. Its mind blowing what it tells us about. Should earnings crash as the chart suggests we may well be in the deepest recession since 2009.

            Much, much worse actually. That chart needs a lot more discussion.

            And getting back on track…..

            Take a look at this futures chart of Platinum.

            This one is a wonder to behold because you can see pretty clearly that the huge jump in price since January was really just a dead cat bounce. If I doubted my self about the real trajectory of precious metals in a single discouraged post last month well then I retract that comment.

            I was never wrong from day one.

            Anyway, platinum is going down…..a lot. We should not doubt that the 600 dollar range is possible but this chart sure as hell does not give me confidence precious metals are in a new bull market and on that score I am positive.

            For all the thousands of posts I have written on this topic already it is amazing how a few Turkeys like Moriarty and LPG jumped on the one that was a mere moment of personal doubt. As if those guys have such a stellar record!

            Platinum Futures on a Monthly Chart……No Dorothy, it is not in a new bull market.

            even know it.

            They insist the blue sky hype down the road will pay off. Not going to happen.

            This next crisis will be a smack down. Paper gold will get absolutely crushed and
            these illiquid mining shares that are small time will evaporate.

            You know !! It was discussed long ago. The gold community is in for devastating
            pain. The greed sets in and they become exuberant and lose all better judgment.

            Its over soon Birdman. The gold trade gains are behind us. Paper is doomed.

            The big crash is in the pipeline. GUARANTEED and all hell is going to break lose.

            Your analysis is dead on. Bye bye dreams. Its just ______ reality. Its all in trouble.

            Perhaps over in Africa you can find someone who can both read and understand English. I have not touted platinum as any bull market at all. I pointed out that over history platinum has almost always held a premium to gold. But when I wrote this article,


            I suggested selling gold and buying platinum since the spread was the highest in history with a premium of gold over platinum of $331 an ounce. I also pointed out in the article that it wasn’t a directional bet. It doesn’t matter if gold and platinum are in a bull market or bear market, the spread should not only decrease, it should go positive to platinum just as it has 99% of the last 150 years.

            You and Trader Jake should get married, clearly you both think the world of each other. Why not get married and take a really long honeymoon? Meanwhile the guys who do have something to offer do not have to wade through stupidity.

            When I wrote that piece, the spread was $331, the spread went as high as $351 and I’ll quote from the piece, “Yes, the premium of gold over platinum could go higher. That just makes it a better investment over time.” The spread is now $268 of gold over platinum which means investors had a chance to make $63 an ounce with very little risk. I can only hope platinum goes to $600 because if it does, I can promise gold will be lower than $931 and the trade will still be profitable.

            That’s just one of the last 25 good calls that I made that people can make money off of rather than blather about meaningless crap like you and Trader Jerk are so fond of.

            If you have made a single better call than that that actually made money for someone over the last three months, show it to me. While you show some intelligence now and again, you carry a giant chip on your shoulder most of the time and go looking for people to harass.

            You defended them.
            Vehemently I might add.

            Since you didnt understand yet again what was said, when I exposed that…thats when you became obnoxious.

            Its just something I noticed, prior to that you seemed ok, even with the endless copy pasteing.

            Mathews efforts were always ok with me too, but as I said, that stuff, and what you post didnt really apply to me, so I never followed it.

            I have always been far more intersted in the discussion of events, or even religion at times when it didnt get “overboard”

            I do my own research, so your stuff doesnt apply to me.

            In any case, when you began to defend “torutre,slavery and crimes against humanity…thats when you became obnoxious.

            I never defended crimes against humanity or slavery, so don’t put words in my mouth.

            They haven’t been found guilty of any crimes, but I did post all the human rights studies, audits, and internal processes they have had in place. Don’t let all the research or facts from the last 3 years get in the way of your crusade and accusations.

            Honestly b, I was sick of your endless tape loop about these same old and unproven accusations every time we discussed Nevsun. It got stale after having you jump in any time contributors or guests on the KER discussed them.

            Then you went the extra mile in posting completely false information from an editorial from 2014, that was a smear campaign doubting the grade at the Bisha mine. You used that misinformation as the justification for not believing them or reading any of the research or data I was posting.

            It was flawed logic, or maybe just a way out of doing any real research on the matter. If you had bothered to do any real research on Bisha, then you’d know they have some of the highest grades in their polymetallic ore of Copper, Zinc, and other metals, and are one of the most profitable mines on the planet. That is why, despite the low metals prices, Nevsun had so much free cash flow piled up that they could acquire Reservoir Minerals.

            We’re supposed to make sure the posts on her are verifiable and accurate, and yours was far from that. What I posted is all easily checked and in the public records, on quarterly reports, or found in the 76 page study you never read.

            Lastly, you advocated rounding up the executives and throwing them all in jail based on a flimsy accusation. Since the KER is an investment blog based on mining companies, then statements like are not only outrageous, and lacking credibility, but then don’t belong on a site like this.

            You are mistaken again Shad. This is not an investing site and as you should know by now the host frequently advise that the conversations and posts are NOT INVESTMENT ADVICE.

            The banner actually states this is a show that deals exclusively with asset based investing and elsewhere describes itself as having a fundamental focus. But in truth it is a source of entertainment that revolves around the resource sector.

            It is not about giving hot stock tips or designed to provide a venue for promoters of their shares or companies. So while you might like it to evolve that way you are as usual off-base and I say this with reference to the point you keep making that the sponsors are gold mining companies.

            As far as I have ever been here not a single one of those sponsors has ever either promoted nor discouraged the wide ranging kinds of discussions that Al seems to enjoy. That includes the Weekend show featuring corespondents from DC.

            So you can stop trying to force us all into your little program box. There are a lot of people with a lot of ideas here that include religion, politics, macro-economics, stories about their wives and kids and sometimes the pet dog too.

            Excelsior: shunning works, though sadly not nearly as well on a blog as in real life. I’m amazed at your ability to follow so many stocks. How do you find time to read all the pointless posts by those who go against your grain?

            Irish: As I said to Ex, shunning works, and seems to be the only option, since TPTB in KER world don’t see fit to correct it. Cory appealed to us a while back to stick to constructive comments and not bickering. But he/they do nothing about the chronic problem posters.

            Thanks GH.

            I spend about 2-4 hours per day on researching mining companies, and use a number of systems to manage the incoming news and technicals on specific companies, different kinds of miners (ie PGM, Copper, Specialty Metals, Uranium, Lithium, Base Metals, etc). Then if I get into an area play like Mexican Silver miners, or Golden Triangle BC, or W. African gold miners, or Athabasca Basin Uranium explorers, etc…. then I build lists around those. I won’t be posting them anymore, because whiny posters on here don’t know how to scroll, and I’m done dealing with griping.

            As for shunning, it is hard to do when TJ and Birdman latch onto every post or discussion I start with their attacks and insults. Until it gets addressed, then I’ll just post less frequently and less content. There is just too much noise on the KER when they’re around, so it has become too challenging to navigate through their negativity.

    Off topic….but when I come across a website I cannot access which happens from time to time because they are blocked where I live, I have discovered that if I use the search engine Duckduckgo it gets around the problem.

      I believe this has to do with the anonymity features of Duckduckgo–the true origin of the person accessing a site is obscured.

      Another that will accomplish this with even more privacy (but slower), if used well, is the TOR Browser. And then there are VPNs. No need to ever be shut out from any web sites, I don’t think.

      We are both in the stone age then. I just thought it was curious that the browser DuckDuckGo could circumvent blocked sites. That tidbit might come in handy for others here who travel a lot. You don’t get much web censorship in the US but elsewhere it is VERY prevalent. Recent public examples of blocked internet happened in Ukraine, Egypt, Kenya, Nigeria, Ethiopia, Turkey, China (of course), Russia, Syria, Saudi Arabia etc etc etc….too many to mention. In Egypt for example almost all the Social Media were down for a prolonged period of time during and after the uprising and other nations quickly caught on to the idea. They all seem to have built kill switches that get used with impunity when there is a problem and we should all expect the trend to continue. Would the US or Canada really act any differently if there was a major event in the globe like a large war breaking out? I imagine news and social media could be blocked everywhere at such times and of course….there really are no more traditional newspapers to speak of in many places. So anyway…I just thought I would make mention of the Duck for travelers since it worked.

      I have noticed that too Skeeta. On down days for metals a lot of miners are still in a steady solid climb. That would well continue. Maybe there is simply a delay between the decline in precious metals prices and when the charts of some companies complete their patterns before they will also start to fall. I would not bank on a lot of them going higher though. The gold, silver and platinum charts look like death to me.

        This is supposed to be an investment site. You act like everyone here should worship the ground you sit on but you don’t actually say anything. “The gold, silver and platinum charts look like death to me.”

        OK, so what? What does a person do who just read that brilliant bit of literature.

        Here is advice you can profit from and what it reads like,

        “The Commitments of Traders numbers are more favorable for gold than they have been for 14 years, going all the way back to 2001. Silver is not quite as positive but still positive. We are perfectly positioned for a bull phase even if you believe gold and silver are in some kind of permanent bear market.”

        February 1, 2016 (I can’t post the link because Al’s program doesn’t allow it but the piece is still on my site)

        We’ve seen the Bottom in Gold
        Right under our noses, the XAU over Gold has gone up 21% in less than two weeks. It’s a major bottom similar to that of 2000 and the climb higher will be similar as well.

        Now both of those were perfect calls in advance and someone could profit from them. Why don’t you try poking holes in them instead of posting more of your meaningless and useless comments. Who cares if you think gold is going down? If it doesn’t, you will just deny you said it.

          The lousy jackass doesn’t have a clue how to read even a simple chart but that doesn’t stop him from pretending. The gold, silver and platinum charts “look like death” to him because he’s been wrong all year. When the market finally does pull back meaningfully, he’ll do his usual Daffy Duck cartwheels across this place before dislocating both shoulders from patting himself on the back.

      I’ve lost my desire to endure the daily/weekly insults and attacks on anything I post, like grade school drop-outs. If I post on energy, there they are nagging. If I post on mining stocks, there they are nagging without any value they are bringing to the table. It isn’t a difference of opinion, they are just rude trolls, and they crap all over other people’s posts, or they latch on like leeches.

      I’ll make no apologies for my efforts to share helpful ideas on mining companies on a website that is focused on investing in the resource companies. The fact that a few rogue sour-pusses take issue with posting well written articles, press releases, mining companies corporate presentations, targeted lists of miners narrowing down an area play, sub-sector of miners, or the holdings in ETFs , or posting my custom charts should be laughable on an investing site.

      They don’t have any real criticism or intelligent thoughts on investing in the resource center, or insights into the trends, so they simply attack the fact that I post regularly helpful information.

      These attacks on almost every post doesn’t lend itself to collaboration, and if I were a new listener, I’d be too scared to get into the waters here on the KER with sharks like Trader Jake and Birdman trolling the waters waiting to bite their heads off. It’s just bad for everyone, and discourages the sharing of ideas.

      I’m here for ideas revolving around investing in the the resource stocks, and for small stretches of time we get that on here. (usually when TJ and Birdman are absent). Now we just get garbage that you normally see on damaged message boards or main-stream media comments sections.

      I love and have looked forward to the great conversations on here with quality contributors like yourself, and may still pop on occasionally, but not until a little house-keeping is done on this site and they put a stop to the attack posts.

      If there are a few toxic mosquitoes always buzzing in one’s ear, and the people running the show won’t swat them away, then it just becomes too much of a waste of time and energy to wade through their cesspool of comments.

      I’m feeling the same way CFS is, that until they do a little cleanup of the repetitive end of the world posts, and address the attacks, insults, and trolling, then it’s just not worth the effort.

      I wish you all the best in your investing and in life OOTB. Be well.

    You gold retards are going to get smoked and forced to sell your positions. Sorry to have to advise you. No wonder you are all so angry. But this is not a new bull market. In fact there is a very significant decline coming and plenty of losses to be shared if you hold on. I suggest you hedge it if you are sure I am wrong but do your own thing boys because I am going to have the last laugh around here! :0 :0 🙂

      Birdman: If you keep flip flopping you will give everyone else the last laugh.

      First you denied you said it, then you admitted you said it but it was after midnight and you simply forgot what you said and the latest flipping is that yes, you said it, but you forgot saying it and now it was a “was a mere moment of personal doubt.” Which is it or will that change tomorrow?

      One alternative when you have dug yourself into a deep hole is to stop digging. LPG and I merely pointed out that you said something and then denied it. Why don’t you just accept that we were correct?

      But I’m thrilled to see you have a new BFF in Trader Jerk and I’m sure you will be happy together. You can flip flop down the beach and he can deny any facts he accidentally trips over while lying about what you said and admitted you said.

        No flip-flop Bob. Just a moment of doubt in an otherwise perfect record of bearishness that has paid well. Don’t make so much about it because you will go crazy for no good reason.

        Not sure what all the Trader J comments are about. I rarely correspond with him so that ones a puzzle. You might read the threads more carefully to note the relationship is actually a distant one for me.

          Your record of bearishness for the last 8 months has been an utter disaster. It is a perfect disaster, I admit while you totally lack the ability to give credit to the half dozen people who got it dead right.

          Your opinion is that gold will go down in the future. The facts say it has gone up for the last 8 months. That’s a fact, not an opinion. Your opinion was dead wrong in the past.

    Speaking of charts, Cory has mentioned 1308 becoming support for gold. I agree with that statement. It’s going to be interesting when and if gold breaks that level. I think it will break that level, and when it does, we could see the final washout. I would be surprised if gold went below 1050 tho. But the new highs on the S&P was quite a surprise. The JNK chart looms large in the grand scheme of things. So does the dollar.

    Well, one comment on Birds chart, ex says it meaningless.
    I think it does have meaning, but Im not sure what/how much.
    Sure down PMs go according to it, but there are other powerful things going on that suggest otherwise.
    Alot of buying by nations, gold should respond to whoever wins the american election.

    I think we have competing forces, like Rickards describes.

    Maybe Im out to lucnch of course, but ya gotta admit, the funniest thing said was “like a cat climbing a chalkboard”… that was funny.

      Thanks B. The charts really only say that the deflationary period has not ended and secondly that it will probably get worse before it gets better. That suggests to me another leg down on the CRB Index, rising unemployment, more lost homes, another large recession, business bankruptcies and the like. We are almost wholly at the mercy of a demographic tsunami that is not going to be kind to investors for years to come if they are strictly loaded up with assets (of which housing is the largest component). If you read the Hoisington Review you will see that America’s smartest economist is still staunchly in the deflation camp. I will go with his outlook before I even consider any other point of view such a Gary Savages “we are inflating” nonsense. Lacy hunt is probably the best mind around.
