Is Gold Set to Soar?

Let’s face it, I like gold. Okay? We can get that right out in the open, right off the bat. I actually came out of high school and went straight to a college that taught watchmaking, clocks, hand engraving, and jewelry design and repair. Precious metals and stones have intrigued me since I was a kid.

Well this is interesting....

Overnight the first odd thing that happened was that a ton of Bloomberg's trading platforms went dark.  But as that glitch was playing out, over in China the regulators there really shook up global markets.

The gist of what happened is this... Regulators in China's markets announced two things. One was that they were going to get tougher about people using the shadow banking system  to finance stock buying. That seemed bad enough,but there was more...evidently the apparatus to short Chinese stocks wasn't that well developed. Well, it is now and they expanded the amount of stocks that are eligible to be shorted.

The End

Pretty harsh words they are…”the end”.  It usually means you’ve finished the movie or finished the book. But it also means you’ve finished “something” and in our case the something is the great Nixonian error of “let it be”  fiat money.  The end of that particular experiment is indeed nearing its end.

One of the issues that a person like myself has is that because we are not “widely” known, my voice has little sway over public opinion. If you’re a TV star, or movie star, or basket ball player for the Heat, anything you say will be followed by a tremendous amount of people “backing you up”.  The most obvious examples of that are fashion trends. When a few Hollywood “A” lister’s started wearing “ugg” boots for example, there was such a public rush for them, the company “ran out” and had to increase production by over 400% to keep up with demand.

Commentary:

Are The Metals Finally Ready?

For years now the gold and silver bugs have been splattered on the windshield of banking fraud. Yes you read that exactly right. Gold is not down where it is because of low demand. Gold is not down where it is because the world is rosy and no one needs the protection it grants. Gold is not at the laughable levels it is at because inflation is 1% as they tell us and there’s no need for the “wealth preservation” that gold affords. Sorry, it just isn’t so. Gold is down because it has been manipulated down.

Good morning everyone, are you ready for more madness? Let's get to it....

My last look at the futures last night showed that they were stable, a bit green, but nothing special. They rose during the overnight period at times, but this morning they're bright red, with the DOW off about 80. Did something change?

Not physically, no. But psychologically, yes.

China rebounded last night, taking back virtually all of Monday's mini crash lower. That came on a bit of a "wink and nod" that while they say they're going to be really staunch about tightening up monetary policy, they're willing to look the other way concerning extending Government "aid" to select companies. ( QE so to speak) Everyone read that as "full steam ahead".  So the world's traders liked what they think they saw out of China. That said....

Good morning all, get your seatbelts tightened.

The futures at 8 am are in the red. The DOW off 125.

Yesterday the market put in a 100+ point fall. That was the biggest slip in months, as the Central bank fueled rally simply pushed stocks higher almost every day. While 100 points in an 18K market is "nothing", the things that are going on in the world are indeed "something".

Most people were debating the push by Obama to executive action a plan for illegal immigrants last night. But that paled in comparison to the news out of China. They came out and cut rates last night, suggesting that their economy needed a boost. Well that spread to Europe and Mario Draghi ran to the nearest microphone to scream that he too will be flooding the world with Euro's.
