Hi thanks for the comeback. Granted some businesses are doing great. But we need PEOPLE to be doing great again.

I know several auto repair business owners that are doing great, as they and their partner, the green gov’t we have, hammer the crap out of customers at vehicle inspection times.

The check engine soon light. It’s welfare for auto mechanics. They won’t inspect a perfect running auto with that light on. You gotta hear about the BILLS some people get after a check engine light comes on.

My own daughter in law had a nice ’03 Caddy northstar engine. The light came on because the transmission was not going into lock up. 2-300 more RPM at highway speeds. So what?   Who cares? The green gov’t cares.

Either a new transmission $3000 (welfare) or no inspection sticker. They think everybody in NY is wealthy. She had to junk the car. They all have pockets of cash. Under report income. Auto body shops too. loads of cash.

There will NOT be any wage inflation. Except maybe in unionized civil service tax absorbers. Livable standardized wages have to be mandated for non-union people like in the 1930s. Today that would require $25/hr. That automatically would raise all other wages.

It would be like a tax increase for businesses. The artificial low wages are like a tax break or subsidy. Lets face it. Businesses have to put up with all kinds of upsets. Higher fuel costs, sometimes higher electric costs, higher supply costs higher rents etc. Why can’t they handle a high wage cost? Everything costs what it costs and they pay what it costs.

They need to pay entry level people what they costs them to live, in an entry level studio apt, an entry level 15 year old Toyota, three modest meals a day, and 20% left over for fun.

When I was a kid, it was understood at 18 years old your expected to go on your own. 3-4 years out of high school your supposed to be married and having 1 or 2 kids.

In terms of the economy, if my company is any way of measuring, we are going gangbusters both on the gov’t and commercial/industrial sides of the business. Mining is a little slow but food and nuclear are going ape sh!t.

I think wage inflation is coming as well as inflation in everything else. On top of the healthcare inflation, that will be tough to deal with. JMHO

From Schaeffers Research–The silver signal u can’t miss=that January and February tend to be the best months of the year for silver, with the iShares Silver Trust (SLV) averaging monthly gains of 5.3% and 5.1%

Posted by Richard640 @ 19:32 on December 14, 2017  

As we noted yesterday, investors have been dumping silver at a rapid-fire rate lately, with some attributing the abandonment to the rise of bitcoin. Whatever the motive, the latest Commitment of Traders (CoT) data shows large speculators reduced their net long exposure on silver by nearly 28,000 contracts in the week ended Dec. 5 — the biggest one-week decline ever recorded, per Schaeffer’s Quantitative Analyst Chris Prybal. Below, we take a look at how silver tends to perform after these rare signals.

Regarding CoT positions on silver, there have been just seven weekly declines of more than 20,000 contracts ever, according to Prybal. The last signal of this kind happened in May 2017, and prior to that you’d have to go back to June 2015, which marked the first signal in nearly a decade.

In conclusion, if past is prologue, silver futures could be on the upswing soon. It’s also worth noting that January and February tend to be the best months of the year for silver, with the  iShares Silver Trust (SLV) averaging monthly gains of 5.3% and 5.1%, respectively, since inception. At last check, the front-month silver contract was fractionally higher at $15.89 per ounce, off recent five-month lows as dollar-denominated commodities move higher following yesterday’s Fed rate hike.

Car And Home Buying Bubble Ending??

Posted by Mr.Copper @ 18:39 on December 14, 2017  

I’m hearing new car showrooms around here are very quiet the past two months. I’m also seeing more and more people all at the same time, trying to unload  the more expensive homes. Lowering their asking prices.

The media tells us there is a shortage of houses for sale, but neglect to say the shortage is only in the lower priced affordable homes in top notch condition. There are TONS of expensive houses for sale. No shortage there.

There are also tons of cheap run down rotting old unmaintained houses in minority areas with many foreclosures and twice as many pre foreclosures as houses listed for sale.

With an economy this humbled, and only 4% unemployment??? Something smells fishy. Btw, there are only two things that smell like fish. One of them is fish. Figure out the other one.

The US Dollar? Manipulation and placebo effect.

Posted by Mr.Copper @ 18:22 on December 14, 2017  

Only as strong as the gov’ts ability to collect taxes. Well the gov’ts ability to collect taxes must be impaired, because it resulted in a $19 Trillion of borrowed money.

Also they say, a high interest rate is the sign of a weak currency. (to attract lenders or bond buyers) Well from what I see the US pays the highest bond interest rates compared to Europe and other countries. Eh??


Re “US economy and it is going strong” Strong In Baloney Maybe.

Posted by Mr.Copper @ 18:15 on December 14, 2017  

The US Economy is only as strong as the lowest paid entry level employees. Or only as strong as the taxpaying public. Note, $19 Trillion of built up debt, do to inability for gov’t to raise enough taxes to pay the expenses of the under paid burdens, and pay the expenses of all the tax absorbers slopping at the gov’t trough.

To me looking around my area and what I read? Its like the 1930s with all kinds incentives and gov’t projects going on all over. Things being done that are not needed. Also the artificially low rates are because weak unaffordable salaries to buy houses and cars and consumer products from “Japan.”

Your opinion is as good as anyone else’s. I’ve been hearing the USD would collapse since 2002.

They have a nice fiat game going all these countries – worthless paper for real goods.

Dollar in its death throes

Posted by Elliott @ 16:18 on December 14, 2017  

I do not believe it for a minute.  The Euro, Yen, Ruble, and the Renminbi will fail long before the USD – in my opinion.   The USD is based on the US economy and it is going strong, growing, and not artificially supported as much as the other currencies.  My opinion.

6 bucks down on Au…on the back of ???????

I guess with the SM down…..no way would the PM’s be allowed to stride out…effing Rig.

and here they come

Posted by Buygold @ 15:39 on December 14, 2017  

gotta hit the shares a bit into the close otherwise it wouldn’t be a normal day.


Posted by Buygold @ 15:23 on December 14, 2017  

Well if the USD does start to slide I just hope it has a positive impact on pm’s

I notice the ten yr rates slid again after being up earlier today.

It sure is. Looks kinda ugly on the five day chart.


Maybe somebody heard about the petro-yuan? 🙂

Basically I’m not going to be happy until we have OUR

Posted by eeos @ 13:21 on December 14, 2017  

$10,500 up month. Tired of the BS treatment from the matrix. The bankers are laughing no matter what.


all from an “asset” that isn’t “mined” that you can’t hold or see, based on faith, free of checks and balances, oversight or regulation.

Well Ipso

The USD is giving up its gains today.
Go figure

after a brutal year, it is nice to see MUX back above $2, hope it stays there going into the new year.

Commish 9:51 12/13/17 Something you should know if you ever feel you need a tetanus shot.

Posted by goldielocks @ 12:30 on December 14, 2017  

There is a long version of that video after a group watched the movie Vaxxed. Some people might not notice that he mentions that for instance someone with a injury meaning broken skin or puncture and tetanus vaccine. He said DTap vaccine they give. Which is what they give. DTap is not just tetanus they’re giving you but a regiment of diphtheria Pertussis and tetnus. You don’t need the other two. Plus if a person hasn’t been vaccinated in the past 10 years they need the faster acting tetanus immune globulin because tetanus incubation is short. It can happen a few days after a injury up to about 21 days. The traditional ternus vaccine can take longer to be effective and can do little good protecting you anyways.
Here’s some info.

If I were a banker

I’d paper over gold into eternity too. It’s be cRaZy to do anything else. So my best advice is prepare for utter collapse, it has to be coming down the pipe. It’s going to be civil, b/c most people don’t care anymore. Nothing to fight about


Posted by Buygold @ 12:09 on December 14, 2017  

No way any comeback happens the scum absolutely will not let pm’s off the floor or let the sm fall.

Blast off schmast off

Posted by eeos @ 11:45 on December 14, 2017  

Why can’t the games go on forever again? This stuff is a debbie downer….right where they want us. Mentally gamed for a lifetime….


Posted by Buygold @ 11:18 on December 14, 2017  

If we could somehow pull off a breakeven day it would be quite the feat with the USD and rates higher.

Definitely wouldn’t be the norm after a Fed meeting

Buygold-Maddog-no question that today looks like business as usual–but bottoms are made

Posted by Richard640 @ 10:28 on December 14, 2017  

by testing…also by steep pullback to “shake the tree”…to get merchandise wholesale for the Boyz whose shelves are empty, before the blast off…if G&S recover today and log gains, it would be extremely bullish…

At least in SLV calls-buying this steep pullback=over 11,000 SLV 15.50 jan19 calls bought as of 9:50–so within 20 minutes of mkt. open-but no bounce yet in comex PM futures

Posted by Buygold @ 9:47 on December 14, 2017  

it appears most of yesterday’s gains are slowly evaporating yet again.

Six long years of the same old thing
