MATHEMATICALLY ITS OVER

So what's the really smart money buying.......AAPL? WMT? CMG? GOOG?..........no really what are they buying? I know......TREASURIES!......nahhh.....They're buying artwork and a lot of it and they're spending that money fast and furiously. The recent art sale in NYC registered monster profits this week, while selling works that would have fetched one-tenth of their price a few short years ago. Money's moving and its moving fast. Its looking for value and one of the first red flags is very high end art. Its transportable and over the long run it holds its value. Why do you care? Because this move is signalling what the smart money is doing and they're getting out of fiat fast. 

There's a war comin'. Its comin' fast and its not a shootin' war its a currency war, and the goal is to get to the bottom faster than the next guy. He who devalues first and fastest WINS! Smart money is big money and they know this. They're moving into hard assets and stores of wealth as the market asset prices move higher and higher. The purpose of establishing gold as a terrible "safe trade" has had some success in the West with the "dumb money" but not in the East as record amounts of precious metal is being accumulated as PRICES PLUMMET. Oh the beauty of it all. Paper prices wrecked as the East takes the discounted metal in massive amounts to their shores and convert ounces to kilograms....... and you're sitting there wondering if the price drop will ever end. Do you think the Asians are thinking the same thoughts? Actually they are and they cannot believe their fortune in still being able to buy a multi-millenial store of wealth FOR A DISCOUNT. They know the Western Central banks are playing the Volker game of controlling the gold price to maintain their fiat ponzi. They also know it has a finite timeline and they are going to act.

Enjoy the ponzi......the East surely is. Oh and one more thing just to let you know its not a one way trade for me. Buy some art. If you have a few hundred million lying around it really does make good sense here.........gl

    H'mmmmm but they keep telling us the economy is getting better......


    Are they trying to tell us what we already know?

    http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2013-11-13/what-ex-fomc-governor-really-wants-tell-you-about-fed

    "Who benefits from QE and who doesn’t?

    “Most do not question the Fed’s good intentions, but its policies have winners and losers, which should be acknowledged forthrightly.

    The Fed buys mortgage-backed securities, thereby providing a direct boost to balance sheet wealth of existing homeowners to the detriment of renters and prospective future homeowners. The Fed buys long-term Treasurys to suppress yields and push investors into riskier assets, thereby boosting U.S. stocks.

    The immediate beneficiaries: well-to-do households and established firms with larger balance sheets, larger risk appetites, and access to low-cost credit. The benefits to workers and retirees with significant fixed obligations are far more attenuated. The plodding improvement in the labor markets offers little solace.”

    What he really wants to say:

    "Unbelievably, my ex-colleagues still don’t acknowledge their policies are killing the middle class to the benefit of the plutocracy. Their silence on this is wholly unacceptable and has to stop (and so do the policies)."

    They should interview Inlet, he'll set U'm straight!

    1. Tom, Bud feels sorry for me. I guess it is because I am unemployed and not contributing to his banking buddies "selfare". (selfare is bankerese for welfare). As a matter of fact I haven't worked at a job since 2002. Guess that makes me one of those bums Bud keeps talking about. Yep, a beach bum - nice little place at the beach so I can claim the title "beach bum".

      Yep, Bud appreciate you felling sorry for me. Maybe, you could donate to my mortgage payment like the FED does to yours with ZIRP. OOPs, guess you can't since I don't make mortgage payments and haven't for years. OK, maybe a donation to my daughter's education. Wait, I already paid that. I know, a contribution to a new Pickum up truck so I don't have payments.

      Yeah, Bud - I deserve yer pity. I am just one dumb hillbilly bum who figured it out. I am finished busting my ass making other people rich and supporting those who don't care enough about themselves and theirs to do so. I don't ask for or need a lot - so I get by OK. Doesn't mean I don't feel sorry for those who are giving it their best effort and not getting ahead.

      So Bud keep working and contributing to FICA and Medicare so it is there if/when I need it. Hehehe

  7. Speaking of war, the first casualty of war is always the truth. A couple of Chinese proverbs come to mind, or curses, depending on how you look at them.

    "May you live in interesting times."
    "May you find what you are looking for."
    "May you come to the attention of those in power." and lastly
    "The beginning of wisdom is to call things by their proper name."

    Now I think what has been recently discussed is known as class warfare.
    The current system could be defined as a centrally planned, warfare - welfare model where you just have interventions, not markets. Which problem creates the other? Does Central Planning create a dependent class thru insider traded contrived boom bust cycles, or does a dependent class create central planning and the need to control everything for public good?

    I think it was Madison at the Constitutional Convention once said, "Power must be in the hands of the wealth
    of the Nation (landowners) and the fundamental task of the government is to protect the minority of the opulent from the majority, those who own the country ought to govern it". Like two wolves and a sheep voting on what to have for dinner. However, what if that ownership was brought about through fraudulent means? or by force?

    Those on the right favor the free market to sort everything out where those on the left favor more
    government to sort it out, what if there aren't adequate checks and balances or protection from either, or from both colluding together? Out of the top 100 GDP's in the world, 51 are corporations, what if it has turned into one giant corporation with private ownership? cui bono?

    If all this money wasn't spent subjugating people, people would probably have a lot more financial freedom and all the talk of welfare might have been a moot point, but that would be a very ideal situation where a very powerful few aren't running everything for their benefit.

    I know most people on this board think Bitcoin is a scam. I personally think the idea of a currency that doesn’t need to transported and available to you everywhere is revolutionary. Max Kaiser was recommending Bitcoin in 2010 when the price was $10 bucks a coin today $400. Now that is a multiple. In hindsight, I wish I would have invested a small amount in it. Oh well, maybe next time.... Good Luck all!

  18. Just received an e mail from a reader that allowed me to release this info about the wealthy putting fiat like crazy into high end classic Rolex and Patek watches I Cut out a piece that he gave me permission to release... This past Sunday Christies' held an auction of 50 Rolex Daytona watches. Each and every of the 50 watches smashed the previous record selling price. I mean smashed. The watch on my wrist as I watched I bought for $6000 and thought of in my head as $9500-$10,000 (as that is what I could sell it for). An identical watch brought $60K at the auction. . A watch we bought two weeks ago for $25K brought over $200K (not our watch but an identical one).

    QE is all about profit without production. QE treats wall Street as if it is the government, buying bonds it manufactures.
    Raise and prop up the cost of housing. "Seek lower cost centers." So production is moved overseas where labor's housing, thus labor, costs less. The government has decided production (export income and jobs) are not needed. Cronies can make money and be political kingmakers without production

  24. Yes, it is ugly out there and getting uglier. But, the USA remains the best looking house in a neighborhood of ugly homes. So, money continues to flow here and equities grind still higher. I believe there is still a lot of money on the sidelines that will have no choice but to buy in. Most people won't buy Gold or expensive watches.

    Is a crash coming?? I think so and believe Armstrong's work which suggests the last quarter of 2015 could be correct. Financial Sense remains bullish, but even they believe a crash will come somewhere within 2016-2020 time frame.

  32. Eric King: “In light of everything you’ve just said, David, what about the end game as you see it? Where is all of this headed?”





    Stockman: “At some point the financial markets will realize that this is just one massive central bank driven bubble, that it cannot be sustained much longer, and panic will set in. It’s happened every time in recorded history. Who knows what the trigger or catalyst will be -- from what direction the black swan will arrive, but it will.





    The whole thing is a house of cards. There is so much leveraged speculation built into all of the financial markets of the world that when the selling starts, look out below. There won’t be any bids and the central banks won’t have the ability to forestall the collapse. It’s a very dangerous situation and it’s one that is completely uncharted in terms of any historic precedent or benchmark.”

  35. I'd be interested to hear takes on one problem with owning physical. What if the government requires you to turn it all in? There's plenty of legal code to allow this. And ask yourselves who was the biggest globalist/socialist President prior to Mr. O. FDR. What did FDR do? Seized all privately owned gold.

    Executive Order 6102 required all persons to deliver on or before May 1, 1933, all but a small amount of gold coin, gold bullion, and gold certificates owned by them to the Federal Reserve, in exchange for $20.67 per troy ounce. Under the Trading With the Enemy Act of 1917, as amended by Emergency Banking Act of March 9, 1933, violation of the order was punishable by fine up to $10,000 or up to ten years in prison, or both.

    The price of gold from the Treasury for international transactions was thereafter raised to $35 an ounce resulting in an immediate loss for everyone who had been forced to surrender their gold. The resulting profit that the government realized funded the Exchange Stabilization Fund established by the Gold Reserve Act in 1934.

    Pretty much anything that threatens the value of the dollar (e.g. gold, silver in any type of calamity) is considered a threat to the US and therefore they can seize our PM at will. Of course they can empty the vaults and generate dollars, because if it ever actually is a problem, they just come a knockin and take it all back.

    I haven't really noticed any opinions here on how to deal with this potential dilemma. Does anybody thinks Mr. O wouldn't do this the instant QEternity consequences cannot be avoided any longer?

    ReplyDelete
  36. phrasing the question differently one needs to recognize that O does not make this decision and gold is no longer in the hands of the general public as it was in 1933........physical in quantity is only in the hand of very well heeled investors.....the threat to the Western plutocracy is the movement of gold into the East as the shift of monetary influence battles out. Of course confiscation can occur again, so one can prepare accordingly. Just remember one of gold's important qualities is its ability to be easily transported......NOT silver's quality however. There is no easy answer to the questions regarding the totalitarianism......but yes CONfisation of assets has always been on the table........which is why PAPER is their first target.

    post the link in google if it does not open

    (snip)
    The increase in the demand for paper currency and gold not only had a quantity effect on the money supply but it also put upward pressure on the price of gold, which meant that dollar prices of all goods and services had to fall for the relative price of gold to rise. The deflation of the early 1930s was not caused by tight money. It was the result of panic purchases of fixed-dollar priced gold. From the end of 1929 until early 1933 the Consumer Price Index fell by 27%.

    By mid-1932 there were public fears of a change in the gold-dollar relationship. In their classic text, "A Monetary History of the United States," economists Milton Friedman and Anna Schwartz wrote, "Fears of devaluation were widespread and the public's preference for gold was unmistakable." Panic ensued and there was a rush to buy gold.


    and that is the story

  40. Thanks for the replies. Although of no consequence to my inquiry, I'd debate your premise that O doesn't/couldn't make executive orders as the one referenced in 1933. In fact, his use of executive fiat puts FDR to shame. However, I'm primarily interested in more specifics regarding "preparing accordingly" against confication. Indeed, gold is more portable, but still only in relatively small quantities. I can comfortably and fairly discreetly put about 15 1 ounce coins in each pocket and that's about it. Silver is another problem altogether, as you say. Digging a hole in your back yard is a little risky in a number of ways and depending on the circumstance, you may not have the time to go geo-caching with a shovel. But even assuming you have a small portable amount gold, just exactly where are you going to take it? Not through an airport scanner and security. Maybe some of you guys keep your own jets fueled and ready, packed cargo holds full of shiny, but assuming that's not the case---what then?

    1. this issue is MUCH different for "real money" as referenced by the paintings, diamonds, and Phillipe Patek watches etc. this is portable "hard asset" wealth. Gold also falls into this realm to some extent. I have knowledge of people with enough gold that it requires multiple trips to transport it to their car.....THAT is not portable. BUT if you are only worth a million bucks then a couple of pockets of gold work quite nicely.If you believe you can bury your gold in your backyard and they can't confiscate it....then think again.....easily findable with today's technology from satellite......hehhehehehehhe........people worth a few hundred million will picked clean by the elite.....many were wiped out in 08 09.....the next cleaning will be much more thorough....that's why many are buying art, diamonds, gold, etc. now.

  42. All above generally agreed. And I say burying is sketchy, but if buried, you'd need to know it was there to look for it with detector of any sort. Especially if there are lots of trees above your site. As far as nice watches and $105 million Andy Warhol painting, what is that stuff worth in a massive depression?--zilch. Tear off pieces and use for toilet paper or kindling, I guess. Not even worth a stout ribeye.

    In any case, nobody answered the question: exactly where can one go with gold? 30-40 ounces (3 lbs) of gold is about all that's easily carried discreetly. Trust me. Now diamonds----THAT's something truly portable and easily stashable, much better than gold. Terrible losses when selling though. And not able to break them down into fractional values. But you COULD get on a plane to Hong Kong with millions of dollars worth of diamonds and nobody the wiser. Try that with pockets full of gold coins.

  44. 1) Buy the gold with cash in person…without the paper trail no one will come looking for it. I personally have it stashed in a few places, my favorite spot is inside my wall behind the sheetrock. It would require more time and resources to find it than the gold is worth lol.

    2) Given the state of collapse and chaos in which confiscation would be a possibility, I HIGHLY doubt that there would be door to door searches for gold necklaces and a few measly coins, if any in most homes. If you have millions of $ in bullion, then maybe, otherwise this strategy would cause the gov’t more problems than it’s worth. They would more likely go after major investors, bank vaults, storage houses, etc.

    3) Think, you asked “where can one go with gold?” I think this brings up a larger issue/question. What is your contingency plan if/when there is a collapse, social upheaval, food shortages, police state? If your plan is to hunker down at home with your preps, then your gold should stay put as well. If you have some sort of bug out plan, a cabin in the mountains or something, then the gold would go with you, most likely in a car. I don’t think that a last minute ‘grab the gold and run for it’ approach is a good idea. If you don’t have a defined place to be that is safer than your current residence, then staying put is probably your best bet. JMO though, not sure if others want to weigh in. GL

  45. that's right sammy......one must tailor their own plan based upon their particular situation. If one is trying to protect significant wealth over 50 million vs 500 million vs 5 billion then there are much different answers..... for most here its under a million and their gold can be carried in two pockets. For those between one and 10 million then it gets a little complicated. Most readers here do not own physical gold.......probably under 10 percent.

  47. That's really surprising Kli, 40% of readers are international!? I wish they would comment more often, I wonder what they're seeing in their economies and what the 'underground' expects the outcome to be.

  48. Lots of interesting things going on in the Ukraine, the economy is depressed, political problems, issues with Russia. I think they're trying to move into the EU, Russia is probably not happy.

  49. It's apparent we're going to be treated to a whole week of why JKF assassination is NOT a conspiracy. Tonight CBS had an hour with the police holding up the gun all over TV tihout using any gloves so who knows who's fingerprints were on that thing? What idiots (or not)!
    Been watching football all day. Hope it's real lol.

    "Indian customs officials say that the amount of gold seized has soared over 300% this year.

    They claim to have found people hiding gold just about everywhere you could imagine– from airplane lavatories to betwixt their butt cheeks. Not exactly the smartest way to smuggle gold… Just imagine being the buyer of those bars!"

    Like my Mom used to say "Always wash your hands after handling coins, you never know where it's been". Hehee ain't that the truth!
