    @Tony

    I hear this story since 2008

    Comex Gold and Silver Markets Hurtling Towards Default 30 October 2008 http://www.marketoracle.co.uk/Article7059.html

    yet nobody seems to take physical delivery, why Not? It’s far better to have real gold in possession now. That tells me there’s something wrong in the state of Denmark.

    either Max was really tired or watching a film on his laptop whilst recording the show or he really was off his tits on something as the slurring and the prodding by Stacey was very prominent so half way through I had to stop listening

    when is the tsunami coming as all everyone is going on about is when it might happen , I kind of wish the storm would happen now or else blow out so we can hook up to the matrix again :)

  8. Tony says:

    yet nobody seems to take physical delivery, why Not?

    If no one was taking delivery the price would still be sub $1000. When the price gets too low buyers have pounced, so its allowed to rise to a point where the COMEX & LBM can continue to make deliveries. Thus $1250 gold and rising. They can’t manipulate the price if they run out of physical, so they have to grudgingly give in to the buyers on occasion.

    But make no mistake, the is COMPLETELY managed. There is no such thing as free in the Gold market. At least not yet.

    @Tony; China

    They can pay the Chinese workers more, but it may not send inflation to the U.S.A. Americans can’t afford to buy, so yes they can increase the prices, but fewer and fewer can afford to buy anything. 40,000,000 are getting food stamps, (22% higher than a year ago) unlikely buyers of big screen TV’s when they can’t even feed themselves.

    The trend to quantitative easing is switching over to cut backs and higher taxes. Not happening in the USA quite yet, but Europe and the U.K are already doing it. Will it force Obamas hand? Will he have to mimic the other countries or will his currency turn into a bigger pile of poop?

    All of this is hardly conducive to higher spending on junk that lasts a year coming from China.

    China better get its internal market stronger, hell they have the population and they certainly have the cash. They don’t need America, except as a food source. The USA is becoming a minor market compared to the potential buyers in China and India. Thank you Wall Street for screwing up the Western world, did you notice those unproductive bastards got he quantitative easing first?

    The Romanoff’s, clueless, the aristocracy of France, clueless, the final Roman emperors clueless, Hitler, clueless, the current crop of fascists, clueless. They screw up by pumping money into corrupted banks and then raise fees and taxes, yeah that will work, they can always be trusted to do exactly the wrong thing. It may be a natural cycle, we live in interesting times.

    Max and Stacy the show was a little wonky at the beginning maybe you are taking too much on?

  10. Tony says:

    @Youri

    You might want to also look up how the physical market dried up during the price crash of 2008. They nearly did blow it up. While Mish was calling for $400 gold, sane people were buying with both hands.

    Since then they’ve managed it, which is the best they’ve been able to accomplish.

  11. ronron says:

    @Snoot. if you get time, load up, up the yangtze. nice vid.

  12. Tony says:

    @Ray

    Well, there’s nothing like doubling your worker’s wages with a rising currency to build your internal markets. (And encouraging them to buy gold)

    The US & Canada will have no choice but to pay the higher prices (when possible) until they begin to make ‘things’ again.

  13. Youri Carma says:

    Most participants do not take delivery from futures contracts. Rather they tend to roll positions they want to hold into farther forward contracts.

    Adrian Douglas: Is discovering the gold fraud worse than the fraud itself? http://www.gata.org/node/8769

  15. Tony says:

    @Youri

    Yes, but that’s also a function of price and with it, perceived stability. Drop the price to $400, and a whole lot of those contracts will not roll over. Certainly not in this economic enviroment. Serious investors will grab those bars while the gettin’s good.

  16. Youri Carma says:

    Can’t believe this.

    Here’s a guy Adrian Douglas who is publisher of the Market Force Analysis letter. Still he tought that Quote: “While some of the wilder theories are almost certainly wide of the mark, suggesting that the banks are trading far more gold than they hold title to …”

    Here you have me publishing no letter at all and I know for a fact that Central banks do this cause they say so themselves. Rickards said righfully so, I paraphrase: ” “For us it’s gold mainpulation but for the central bankers it’s simply policy” btw I have said this long before Rickards.

    Nout Wellink always said to his colleagues “there are two things a central bank can lie about – gold and interest rates”

    Still I here people in the financial circuit, who take themselves very serieusly, say: ” I don’t believe gold is being manipulated”. My mother always said ” You believe when you’re in a Church but here we check our facts for real”

    Greenspan in 1998, before Congress: ‘central banks stand ready to lease gold in increasing quantities, should its price rise’. http://www.federalreserve.gov/boarddocs/testimony/1998/19980724.htm

    William S. White June stipulated in 2005 ( head of the Monetary and Economic Department of the Bank of International Settlements in Basel ):

    ‘one of the five main purposes of central bank cooperation is the provision of international credits and joint efforts to influence asset prices

    – especially gold and foreign exchange – in circumstances where this might be thoughtful’.

    RE: Farrell story

    Good stuff, but I noticed one glaring error by the reviewed book’s author. He states that free market capitalism is destroying the world. (in essence) But it’s not free market capitalism it’s corporatism that endagers the planet. Corporations shield their owners from personal responsibility for their actions, remove the shield and capitalism make a major change for the better overnight.

    Think Tony Hayward would deep water drill in the Gulf if he risked his personal fortune and freedom in the process? Not unless he was DAMN sure nothing would go wrong.

  20. Mep says:

    @ Tony – It’s not just iphone 4 users who are gonna get crushed with fees . . . eventually, it’s gonna be all Apple smartphone users. (And iPad users.) My husband chatted with an AT&T helpdesk guy a few nights ago on IM. They are going to subject all of their customers to the new fees and plans. If you go a gig over, it’s gonna cost an additional $10. And just about everything counts as data, so it’ll be easy to go a few gigs over. The iphone4 has two cameras, right? So people can actually do video chats? I’m sure that new feature will help jack up a bunch of fees for all of that data transfer. I’ll be ditching my phone as soon as our contract is up. It’s ridiculous to me that you can’t even purchase a new battery for these freaking phones and change them yourself. Used to be that you’d have to send them off to corporate headquarters to be replaced, but they don’t even do that anymore . . . they make you get a new freaking phone and just transfer all of the data from your smartcard over to the new phone. IMO, if you can’t open it, you don’t own it.

  21. Tony says:

    @Mep

    Ouch, I didn’t even know about the battery thing. I was just glad to be able to get the unlimited data still with the Evo. It doesn’t look like anyone will be offering that for much longer. –Especially since the kids all just hack the phones for free tethering.

    I think the phone companies are worried that people will just dump their home services altogether as speeds increase.

    I’ve got it! We must create a new wildlife death market where each species will be represented by a ticker symbol where anyone can bid up the worth of an individual of that species. Then the greenies can put their money where their mouths are and bid up the worth of a sea turtle or pelican. Then the evil corporations will then have to hedge their kill rate with shares of the species they’re decimating and buy these death shares on the open market. These shares would be limited to the population of each species on earth and would have to be retired as the shares are consumed by corporations who are killing the animals. Then as less shares are available the remaining shares become even more valuable causing the corporations to spend more and more for each individual killed. Brilliant, give me the Nobel for economics and ecology. Oops I forgot about the inevitable DDS (death default swaps) and naked shorting of the death market.

    Hmmmm, I wonder if I’m understanding this right, that the US banks will no longer be able to manipulate gold and silver??? Too good to be true!

    “On proprietary trading, however, the bill gets tough on banks, said Ernest T. Patrikis, a partner at White & Case, by limiting their bets to United States Treasuries, government agency obligations and municipal issues. “Foreign exchange and gold and silver are out,” he said. “This is good for foreign banks if it applies to U.S. banks globally.””

  49. California Doctor says:

    @NorCalKid –
    That posting is logical, but also old story for those who study wars.
    The wars are usually about those factors, but this time around the stakes are much higher than usual due to the population size and the moral issues involved.

    Somehow, i doubt that the people at the big banks really give a rats ass about the peons and peasants who are stuck in the rat race. To their pathological mind, we are mere cells in their global spreadsheet.

  53. Mep says:

    @ CalDoc – Hence, quoting from the socialist propaganda I linked to earlier:

    Finally, plausible but superficial explanations of the crisis also serve ruling class interests by concealing how capitalist exploitation necessarily leads to economic breakdowns like that of 2007-2009, when the capitalist system cannot even maintain working class living standards. As the Communist Manifesto put it, the ruling class “is unfit to rule” because it cannot even guarantee the survival of the wage slaves it exploits.

    Profits are only restored through a crisis when large numbers of people are thrown out of work as production is “rationalized,” productive resources lie idle, and working class living standards are slashed by employers and governments.

    You can’t even let cells on a spreadsheet wither to death and hope to keep squeezing more blood/energy/production/money from them, can ya? Pathological is right . . . though I think sociopathical is more like it, since it’s a harsher definition of bat-shit-crazy.

  54. California Doctor says:

    @MEP-
    Pathology includes both sociopathy and psychopathy.
    One is pathological towards society. The other is pathological towards another human being.
    In this case, these people are so greedy that they would willingly massacre their own family and children in favor of adding more money for themselves. This is why we as citizens should not sit by as the the “two-party” system continues to foist the banking hegemony.

    phytoplankton…..that’s what Vegemite is made out of.

  64. California Doctor says:

    @Youri – that phytoplankton will die under the situation that exists in the Gulf. A total ecosystem collapse is not being discussed by scientists who are largely funded by federal grants.

    The big zones of anoxic water are going to lead to algae blooms which will cause a kill of aquatic life in those plumes.

    More importantly, any larger fish that run through these zones will pick up the toxins. I am not interested in eating any fish from the Atlantic or Gulf Coast regions.

  65. zaphodity says:

    Well i’m currently unemployed living off the government tit. There are 2 primary ways in which i’m single handedly saving Australia’s economy by doing this.

    1. People who would otherwise be unemployed now have jobs filing and processing my fortnightly check, people who themselves would be unemployed or working in sheltered factories making paper clips.

    2. All the money I spend goes straight back into the economy when I buy aussie made smokes and beer, I am in fact a walking talking stimulus package.

    There’s something fishy about this catastrophic oil spill. Where’s all the oil?

  67. Youri Carma says:

    @zaphodity

    Yeah, full employment is actually harmfull for an economy cause salaries will go up, every economical scientist will tell you that. You need a certain amount of unemployment to keep the salaries down.

  68. Youri Carma says:

    @Tony

    Good question.

    They use Corexit 9500 dispenser which makes the oil float just under the sea level. That’s why BP is using it while it’s toxic stuff, to hide it.

    Fall of Berlin: Stopping the Nazi heart

    The battle for Berlin lasted for two weeks. Three and a half million troops from both sides, Soviet and German, took part in the fight. Some ten thousand tanks, thousands of artillery, and eleven thousand aircraft were involved in the fight. There was no other operation of that scale in World War II, and it was won by the Russians. The Red Flag was risen atop of the Reichstag in May, 1945, and it became the symbol of victory over fascism.
