“Every step you take is forever. You cant make it go away. None of it. You understand what I'm sayin?”
Oh isn't that quaint. A price to pay? What an antiquated idea. Surely there are some more tricks to take away those IOUs that we've managed to steal from our future generations and pretend we were just trying to "save the system" for them and their benefit like it benefited the older generations TODAY.
What would you say if you found out that if you were to try and acquire over 20 million dollars in physical gold that you have to pay a premium of over 300 dollars an ounce? What if you found that it still took over 8 weeks to gain delivery of the gold? There are some high net worth individuals out there so go ahead....... fact check it.
What would you do if you had ridden this bull market? What would you do if you knew the game was rigged so to speak by "fiat". You didn't gain that wealth by being stupid. "You know how this is going to turn out, don't you?" I won't repeat the rest of the dialogue, but if you have the "smart money" then you know how this ends. You may not know exactly when but you know HOW.
Of course there are the technical players still trying to divine the answer on the "game". Some of them have been fairly accurate, but many of the best have been confounded leaving them destroyed by the Bear of all Bears. Of course there are those of you that find that statement completely insane. Again I would refer to this piece of wisdom. "IF the rule you followed, brought you to this, of what use is the rule?"
Sometimes one becomes confounded by forces that are beyond your depth of knowledge and certainly your control. One then has to adapt or be destroyed. Those are not necessarily the choices one wants but it certainly appears to be obvious which choice one has to make. We're at that juncture for anyone that has had the ability to reach this point in the Supercycle of supercycles with a stake in this "game". Some are like the money managers that have failed to keep pace with the "market indices" and feel desperate this late in a "bull market". Drawing on some more old wisdom "all the time ya spend trying to get back what's been took from ya, more is going out the door. After a while you just have to try to get a tourniquet on it." Maybe you have your tourniquet. Maybe you just need to get out of the paper game. Maybe your that good of a trader that you believe you can handle what's comin'.
Let's say you believe you're that good. You think when the music stops and deep down you know it will, that you can get out and make your deal in time. Just understand first WHO or WHAT you're dealing with. "You don't understand. You can't make a deal with him. He's a peculiar man. You could even say that he has principles. Principles that transcend money or drugs or anything like that. He's not like you. He's not even like me."
For those still interested in prognostication or playing in this casino, I found a chart that struck me as very interesting that I had posted here in September. I thought enough of it then to post it and just by luck I found it and will repost it. You can take what you wish from it but its certainly still very much in play. We just might have set a very nice bear trap in PM's. One thing is certain. We will find out soon enough. gl and happy turkey day
