re Harvard survey finds falling wages, more part-time jobs @ 11:21

Posted by Mr.Copper @ 21:46 on September 8, 2014  

That there is typical gov’t media info. The “story” implies that the problems of today are from the 2008 meltdown. And a so called weak recovery. The trend of less work for Americans started all the way back around 1975.

By 1980 the Gov’t was blaming the United Auto worker union for the inflation or high prices from de-pegging the Dollar in ’71. The workers were only getting raises that kept up with higher prices.

Plus because we made all our own consumer products, plus Korea and Vietnam “products” plus we were producing moon landing products, and guess what???

If you were employed in manufacturing? THERE WAS AN ENOUMOUS SHORTAGE OF LABOR!!!!! You could quit your job and get another at higher pay in about a hour.

The “business man” together with gov’t help (tax incentives exchange rates) put a stop to that by outsourcing. To help businesses profit, and create more middle class people in third world nations.

All the way back in 1980 James Dines predicted a deflation in wages here because of using Indian and Chinese labor.

The Media always tells people about the results, things they already noticed. The Media will NEVER tell you what I tell you. The CAUSE. Why talk about symptoms?? Or very old news?

The Silent Death Of The U.S. Dollar

To begin, I would like put forth the observation that the U.S. Government has become particularly belligerent militarily toward the rest of the world.  Anyone who thinks the U.S. is not provoking Russia and China all over the globe has their head in the sand or is incapable of looking at the facts outside of the tragically skewed propaganda coming from Washington, DC  that is being funneled through the U.S. media pipeline.

The reason the U.S. is trying to stir up global military chaos is simple, the U.S. dollar is being systematically removed from its reserve status.   The latest evidence of this is the news report yesterday that China and Argentina are going to begin trading in their respective currencies, with trade settlement in yuan – NOT dollars:   News Link.  Please note this news is not being reported by the U.S. mainstream financial media.

“Big deal,” you might think.   But also unreported over the last couple of years is that China has been quietly arranging these bi-lateral trade deals with EVERY major trading partner, including several European countries.  Recently China signed huge deals with Iran and Russia to trade energy in their respective currencies.   This IS a big deal.   China and Russia are systematically extricating their trade activities from the dollar.

Yes, the dollar has bounced considerably higher in the last couple of months.  But this is because the main components of the dollar index – the yen and the euro – have been melting into oblivion.  The yuan and ruble are not included in the standard measurement of the dollar’s value.  Russia and China don’t care about that value of their currencies in relation to the dollar,  other than the effect it has on their Treasury holdings.  But Russia and China are slowly unloading their Treasuries.   They are both accumulating physical gold hand over fist.

At the end of March the GLD trust had 820 tonnes of gold in it.  It’s down to 785 tonnes.  I bring this up because the market falsely assumes that a decline in the amount of gold held in GLD is a sign investors are selling gold.  This is not true.   Selling a GLD shares is not a trigger for the removal of gold from the GLD trust.  The ONLY way gold is removed is if one of the Approved Participant banks puts together 100,000 share baskets and exchanges them for gold bars.  Note: the banks can create shares by borrowing them.  The short interest in GLD is quite high.   Gold is being removed from GLD because the western bullion banks (JP Morgan, HSBC, Scotia, etc) are on the hook for paper claims they have printed up and dumped into the market.  Some of those claims (LMBA forwards, especially) end up in Chinese hands.   The U.S. can not default on those.

I bring this up because if you’re wondering where that gold from GLD has gone, look east to China. That gold is sitting in vaults in China, owned by the Peoples Bank of China and private investors.   China is systematically extracting as much gold as it can from the west.  China, an d Russia,  is methodically killing the dollar.   The sign posts are there to see for anyone who wants to look for them.

Watching the world go by lol Interesting chart on Yen. I was aware as well as another chartist that Gold appeared to be following Yen but didn’t look into it to that degree.just watching it go down have to run. Would be interesting to know who’s buying all those US bonds in Europe but I could take a good guess.

First President to side with a foreign nation over one of the American 50 states (Mexico vs Arizona).

First President to tell the military men and women that they should pay for their own private insurance because they “volunteered to go to war and knew the consequences.”

Then he was the First President to tell the members of the military that THEY were UNPATRIOTIC for balking at the last suggestion.

It’s hard to comprehend all this guy has gotten away with.  Any other president would have been impeached!  What in God’s name is wrong with our government that they allow this guy carte blanch.  It absolutely boggles the mind!

I feel much better now.  I had been under the impression he hadn’t been doing ANYTHING!!

Hello to all…….

Not sure if I’m in the right place or not??

I’m a retired currency trader of 22 years, understanding Capital flows and how the value of a countries currency effects trading the precious metals sector has been my focus these past few years. If I’m in the correct place and those here want to make some money, well please read on.

From 2000 to 2008 Gold was a pure currency trade vs the US$, the high gold produced was US debt ceiling and S&P downgrading US debt from AAA to AA+ related….my first chart


Now we’ve all been told about the manipulation in the gold market, I’m going to show you what is driving Golds action since Nov 2012 as gold is being traded as a currency (which it is) just as the bull run from 2000 to 2008 was all about a devalued US$ as the Index fell 50 cents from 121-71 and everything that was priced in US$ was revalued higher be it, Oil, Silver, Uranium, Wheat, Rice, Copper etc

The trade in play now is $YEN….have a L@@K at these $YEN charts vs Golds value, notice where 99/101 $YEN caps golds advance


The next chart is a Weekly $YEN chart that shows where gold has been and IF the devaluation of $YEN continues where it will go


Last chart shows what those that Howl at da moon regarding Gold and it being manipulated do not want YOU to see….$YEN traders as they sell yen and buy US$’s are putting on a gold sell trade at the same time, no manipulation, just a pure currency trade….notice todays trading action as $YEN weakened by almost a full cent gold retraced $22 from $1272 to $1250


So again I have no idea if this gold tent blog is about making money or watching the world go by???

I post at another blog which is all about making money, not whining about golds value for those that understand how to read basic charts….. no fancy Ewave, Fibs or trend lines the members are excellent and the head site guru is a great guy along with a fantastic tech support….join us and make some $$$$$$$

Goldtent TA Paradise


Feel free to drop by….Good Luck to you all!……CHEER$!

That might depend on how bearish you are as far as who’s most bearish. PMs just in a trading range based on charting. Dollars been bullish and globally where money seems to be moving for now anyways. Europe a mess Meir was a mess Yen going down and economy declined, yuan always wants to lowball everyone else that leaves the US for now.

Sorry to tick you off. Discuss what you want. I am not aware of anyone on this board being more bearish then myself. And, I have been correct, yet lonely in this analysis. I don’t enjoy it. I make far more money when the PM stocks go up rather then down…despite puts. I was going to post exactly when I was going to sell those puts. Now, I think it will be better to just stay silent. It was my intent to help shield Gold Bugs from the monetary pain of this decline. I surrender and wave the white flag….Peace and Prosperity to you all.


Posted by Buygold @ 16:24 on September 8, 2014  

Good for you! You showed us! Why don’t you tell us where pm’s are going next? I agree with you probably lower, much lower, always lower. Sorry to talk about Putin and Shakespeare, clearly they have no bearing on always manipulated pm’s.

Good God man, we all know you’re short SLW, be a gracious winner for crying out loud. Geez.

BTW – NO, gold going up in a sustained manner is far rarer than effing reality.

Stop and seize

Aggressive police take hundreds of millions of dollars from motorists not charged with crimes

After the terror attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, the government called on police to become the eyes and ears of homeland security on America’s highways.

Local officers, county deputies and state troopers were encouraged to act more aggressively in searching for suspicious people, drugs and other contraband. The departments of Homeland Security and Justice spent millions on police training.

The effort succeeded, but it had an impact that has been largely hidden from public view: the spread of an aggressive brand of policing that has spurred the seizure of hundreds of millions of dollars in cash from motorists and others not charged with crimes, a Washington Post investigation found. Thousands of people have been forced to fight legal battles that can last more than a year to get their money back.

So let’s discuss anything but…Shakespeare, Putin, Illegals….anything, anything but, the PM market…right?  Much too painful. Oh well, Slw closed it’s gap but I didn’t cash in just yet. More to go IMHO.   REALITY is really rarer then Gold.
