Just another down Sunday night

Posted by Buygold @ 19:12 on August 31, 2014  

I remember the good old days when pm’s would be up on a Sunday night before a holiday Monday and then give all the gains back by Tuesday am.

Not anymore, they just hit them on Sunday nights, EVERY SUNDAY. Absolutely disgustingly corrupt.

Insanity.  The things I hear people in public positions say; the things that happen to us and all around us as a result of public policy that we seem to have to control over; and, and, and….Damn it.  Where’s that head-banging-against-the-wall thing?!

[Just look at The $HUI (GoldBugs Index) vs $GOLD (Phyz)]

$HUI:$GOLD .. nosebleed levels!!!




$GOLD:$HUI .. only one other time that this ratio was wayyyy outta whack, ..twas about 14 years ago .. it was probably a {Ment’s} buy of a lifetime!!

FG, apparently the Gator Fans are a tough bunch. 🙂

(cant believe the game was canceled !)  Hmmmm…an Omen of sorts???

Well, would party with those Gator Fans any ole time. Good folks. Little crazy like me I guess…lol


Gators fan Martha Herrera said she and her family sat through all the delays and were going to try to “stick it out” until the game was cancelled.

“We were singing and dancing and getting really wet,” she said. “We were going to stick it out and we were really hoping to be able to soak it in. And enjoy the game but it will have to be another time. We were in the rain. … We didn’t want to miss out on any of it.”

Some fans continued to inhabit the Swamp throughout the delay, including a number of students on the stadium’s east side that seem unfazed by the strong downpours and lightning.

One female student ran out onto the field before security personnel corralled her. The young woman performed the Gator Chomp as she was led off the field. ”


Best Farmboy

Got to shake a leg and get to moving. Have a long work day ahead of me. See ya this evening. If ‘you know who’ shows up hand her a bottle of wine would ya. Kinda like ‘her’ when she is mellow and not pickin on me. (grin)

Armstrong is at it again.

He is preaching that $gold was a terrible bet when measured against the gains in the DOW. He uses a deliberate measure from Gold’s HIGHS at the top in 1980. However when measured against Gold’s LOWS in 1999/2001 Gold has given a 5x return whereas the DOW has not even doubled from the 11,000 zone.

Portugeezer @ 6:42 Thanks For The Post ….

Kinda hard for a goldbug to go wrong listening to you and Deadeye. Probably more practical life experience and wisdom in just the two of you fellas than could be found in all of Washington. Good points you make, keep reminding us from time to time please.

And if I had to pick just one chart to summarize “why gold’, it would have to be that one Ororeef put up the other day. Kinda sez it all. Surprised he didn’t draw it on a napkin its so good.  Shoot, cant find it this morning. Had it here somewhere….ole eyes aint what they used to be. The one showing Dow/Gold. Comparing 1996 to today. Yep, gold still in the wealth preservation biz.


Best, Farmboy




Morning Oasis – you too R640, the last couple of paragraphs of the ZH article you posted

Posted by Buygold @ 9:14 on August 31, 2014  

But the only place where “discovery” would be by far the most interesting, is for the CME to disclose just which central banks provide, or take such as at 8am every morning when one market sell order takes out the entire bid staack, the most liquidity when it comes to central bank trades in “Metals Futures Contracts (Physicals).”

Because imagine the shock and awe if and when it is uncovered that the biggest active manipulators of gold are not some junior-level traders out of Britain’s criminal bank cartel, but the central banks themselves.

Finally, while the list above deals with international central banks “providing” ES liquidity, those wondering why the NY Fed is not on the list and just how the Fed’s active trading team participates in the market without breaking the law, we have just one word: Citadel.

Floridagold, What Was The Score of The Gator Game ??

Posted by Farmboy @ 9:09 on August 31, 2014  

We had a pretty good thunderstorm roll through last night and had a lot of static on the ole radio. All I could hear was something about a game being rained out. Geesh ! Those sissy baseball players, couple drops of rain and they call a game. One of the reasons I like football, rain, shine, snow, hail, earthquake, even an Obama speech, aint interrupting the game of football. Even if its outside, and I think all football stadiums should be outside.


Dawgs did good. Nothing like opening the season with a win. Anyway, if you could let me know how the Gators did ….?  I thought baseball season was over? But that seems that is all they are talking about on the radio. Game canceled due to rain….lol….they aint football players. Game only gets better in the mud, the blood, and the beer right buddy? 🙂


Enjoy your Sunday, Farmboy

Good Morning Friends. Thanks for Coffee Mad Mike.

Still laughing over that picture you posted yesterday.


So in tribute to a rekindled ‘friendship’ with AuGal I am providing her morning beverages. Cheers to friendship darling !

( Amazing the power of a few little grapes….still works after all these centuries. Kinda like gold eh?)


Hang on there RNO, I just might get that kiss yet.  She has to be getting to the last few bottles in Wanka’s Winery by now.

Putin… on the latest developement.

President Putin called for self-defense militias in Ukraine to provide Kiev’s military units blocked in the east of the country with a safe humanitarian corridor to leave the combat area and “reunite with their families.”

The trapped Ukrainian troops were told to disarm and leave through the humanitarian corridors without their military hardware.

Kiev authorities never gave a definite answer to the initiative, however, and ordered their troops to break out by force. That explains the latest reports about a very limited number of Ukrainian servicemen surrendering, while the rest must have perished in suicidal attempts to break out.

(NEMO: And here is the opposite version of the same situation.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/ukraine/11066256/Fears-of-massacre-after-accusations-Russians-reneged-on-safe-passage-for-rebels.html  )

EU might find it hard to return to Russian market’

Commenting on the new batch of sanctions against Russia threatened by western countries, Putin advised his counterparts to think again about what they are advocating.

What are the so-called European values then? Support for an armed coup, suppression of opponents with armed forces – so these are ‘European values’? I believe our colleagues should be reminded of their own ideals,” the president said.

As for the countermeasures Russia has taken, imposing a ban on certain food imports from the US, EU and several other countries, Putin believes the sanctioned European countries might find it hard to return to the Russian market. He expects new importers from Latin America, China and Russia’s eastern neighbors to secure the market during the year, and then it would “very difficult, almost impossible to budge them.”

Coffee’s on

Got this email

Posted by goldielocks @ 0:50 on August 31, 2014  

And you thought we are all wacko about news coverage….


ABC News executive producer Ian Cameron is married to Susan Rice, National Security Adviser.

CBS President David Rhodes is the brother of Ben Rhodes, Obama’s Deputy National Security Adviser for Strategic Communications.

ABC News correspondent Claire Shipman is married to recent Whitehouse Press Secretary Jay Carney

ABC News and Univision reporter Matthew Jaffe is married to Katie Hogan, Obama’s Deputy Press Secretary

ABC President Ben Sherwood is the brother of Obama’s Special Adviser Elizabeth Sherwood

CNN President Virginia Moseley is married to former Hillary Clinton’s Deputy Secretary Tom Nides.

And now you know why it is no surprise the media is in Obama’s pocket.

Ya think there might be a little bias in the news

It’s Settled: Central Banks Trade S&P500 Futures

Submitted by Tyler Durden on 08/30/2014 15:11 -0400
Based on the unprecedented collapse in trading volumes of cash products over the past 6 years, one thing has become clear: retail, and increasingly, institutional investors and traders are gone, probably for ever and certainly until the Fed’s market-distorting central planning ends. However, one entity appears to have taken the place of conventional equity traders: central banks.

Courtesy of an observation by Nanex’s Eric Hunsader, we now know, with certainty and beyond merely speculation by tinfoil fringe blogs, that central banks around the world trade (and by “trade” we mean buy) S&P 500 futures such as the E-mini, in both futures and option form, as well as full size, and micro versions, in addition to the well-known central bank trading in Interest Rates, TSY and FX products.
In fact, central banks are such active traders, that the CME Globex has its own “Central Bank Incentive Program”, designed to “incentivize” central banks to provide market liquidity, i.e., limit orders, by paying them (!) tiny rebates on every trade. Because central banks can’t just print whatever money they need, apparently they need the CME to pay them to trade.

Hard to keep positive lately

You would need a fork lift or 6 strong guys to pick it up.

Mr.Copper @ 20:42 .. thanks for the link .. really get’s one thinking!?!?!?!?!?

“In response to that, the Pareto Principle suggests that 80% of the gains are found in the final 20% of the bull market. As it currently stands, the dow/gold ratio is sitting at roughly 9-to-1. A move to a 5-to-1 ratio, would require a $2907 oz. gold price, a 3-to-1 ratio $4845 oz., and a 2-to-1 ratio would require a stunning $7268 oz. gold price.

A 2-to-1 ratio move from here equates to a 400% move higher in gold, and of course,a 1-to-1 ratio ($14,500 oz.) would equate to an over 900% move left remaining in the gold bull market.”


WOWZER!!…” 80% of the gains are found in the final 20% of the bull market.”

“($14,500 oz.) would equate to an over 900% move left remaining in the gold bull market.”

huh…i would settle for “2-to-1 ratio would require a stunning $7268 oz. gold price.”


and know wonder it has been quoted ;  Buy gold and sit on it. That is the key to success. – Dr. Franz Pick


I could not even begin to fathom the euphoria @ $7268 oz. gold price.!!!!..[G}

so maybe in the bigger picture ??.. flippin fer a nickel is not really worth it !!.. [Hi Ment]
