1) trump has wanted us out of iraq (and other “forever wars”) but has been getting resistance from the neocons.
2) he orders soleimani droned.
3) iraq throws us out.

a) we get out of iraq (i remember someone describing the iraq situation as a “tar baby.” i think i can see trump’s lips forming the words:
“puh-leeeze don’t throw me OUT OF dat brier patch !!!”)
b) the world has one less really nasty villain (soleimani was NOT a nice person).
c) he gets to publicly slap iran’s face (the neocons get a hard-on and let him do it).
d) he backs the democrats into a corner for a nice election year photo op of them defending terrorism.

slick? he could teach slick willie about slick.

Looks like we have problems tonight

I guess it shouldn’t be a surprise. The boys are back in town.

The action in the SM with Goog, showed just how desperate they are, to stop any chance of downside momentum building, just as they can’t allow any serious upside in PM’s……they clearly know how unstable it all is, tks to their non stop interventions. No right minded person would buy GOOG so aggressively on todays open.

What was done to protect the mkts, has now morphed into an even bigger danger.

What happened to Canada and free speech, and when did Canada come under sharia law? Pretty bizarre enforcement of the law by law enforcement! IMO!!

Another Major Crisis

Posted by Samb @ 17:10 on January 6, 2020  

Gold should naturally go up Big Time…but, it never does in major times of crisis. Pure manipulation, right out in the open and right in your face. Obvious that we are in an Int. up cycle and TPTB will have to let it go up BUT, only in an orderly fashion!  Western central banks appear reluctant to release any more  gold but, here we find ourselves in a crisis so that is once again necessary. Can’t have a gold panic right?


Palladium will close above $2000

great day for the Rig

Posted by Maddog @ 16:15 on January 6, 2020  

seems they bought hell out of Goog on the opening, which set off a fire storm of buying in the Fangs etc…Tesla of course doesn’t need energy, so it closed on new all time Hi’s plus nearly 2 %, Meanwhile Xom was only up 0.7 % as it only works in Oil, which obviously will only go down, if the ME explodes, when the Straights of Hormuz are closed.

Meanwhile PM shares went no where, as there is no inflation,no CB printing, no record short position and the ME is as quite as graveyard….

Hmm…. Orders from Trump?

@ silverngold re your video: The Assassination of Soleimani

Posted by Mr.Copper @ 15:17 on January 6, 2020  

Can’t you find some 3-5 minute videos, describing the bottom line of and for these events? I can’t spend 37 minutes listening to people that like to talk. And get paid to talk. So like to get more time in for more pay.

My view is special interests need higher Oil prices support, and support for related accessories, plus other special interests need a reason for purchase and use of weapons, and related accessories.

Also seems like the two rival countries want to merge. Their my video if I made one would only consume one minute of time. Time is money

P.S., why do you think re have repeat offenders? Running around loose? More work for cops and related accessories, tax absorbers in court houses . More news for newspapers. In fact our “progressive” governor just passed a law saying no bail required for most crimes. And already a few let loose were re-arrested days later.

The Assassination of Soleimani.More puzzle pieces to sort out on The Corbett Report. FWIW. Who you gonna believe??

@Buygold Re Shares Limping With Metals Climbing

Posted by Mr.Copper @ 14:33 on January 6, 2020  

Maybe the Share Investors have some natural fear or caution, from being abused so many times. Gold shares for example are like a slow moving blue chip stock, (less risk less return slower and stable up or down) whereas the gold Shares are like the penny stocks.

Higher risk higher returns. The shares are also like using leverage, because the reserves under ground could be massive and gain or lose extreme value as gold prices change.


Posted by treefrog @ 14:27 on January 6, 2020  

it’s looking better than it was.  gold, silver, and the hui all in the green again.

Let’s see if we can pull off a strong close

Not a great day for the shares, but they haven’t managed to reverse the metals yet.


re Nearly 200 People Arrested Across Australia For Deliberately Starting Bushfires

Posted by Mr.Copper @ 13:24 on January 6, 2020  

Gee, I wonder if Australia has a lot of pissed off people living there, like so may other globalized countries dealing with mass immigration, and stupid commie gun banning laws. Populism has been growing all over since the 2008 crash. I think the “boss” should always try to keep the “workers” happy for his own good.

Pissed off “workers” will not cooperate and in some cases do what they call sabotage. Look at 9/11 and all the other global sabotage that has already happened. And limitless methods, fire being the worse thing. Poisoning drinking water reservoirs might even be worse than fires. They can make mass shootings look like a minor thing. These pissed off nuts don’t need guns or bombs to wreak havoc.

Has anyone noticed a big increase in stabbings lately??? And the use of rental trucks mowing down people?

Prove it beyond a doubt and it should be a capital offense. IMO

Yesterday In 1914 Henry Ford Raised Wages More Than Double

Posted by Mr.Copper @ 10:34 on January 6, 2020  

He went from $2.46 for 9 hour day to $5 for an 8 hour day. Both rates were a livable wage with one spouse working and the other one home with five kids. Home loans were five years and 50% down.

These modern days?? After 1975?? “”Henry Ford””  or rather domestic car makers, made big mistakes having cars made in foreign countries. Now it’s a 6 -7 year car loan.

This could get ugly

Selling has been relentless the last half hour.

Better right this ship. Quickly

So … “they try to make the impossible real”

Sounds like Magic! I’d guess they still have a few tricks left.

“someone taking them on” I sure hope so!

Posted by Maddog @ 10:22 on January 6, 2020  

A situation like this, where as u say anything is possible, is where the Rig falls down, as the moves it causes make no sense, at all.

We long ago left the world, where CB’s stepped in to try and calm/turn mkts, to one where they intervene non stop, to try and keep the impossible real. So yes this is a possible end point….especially as someone is taking them on.

1980 Gold $700 Silver $40 18% Home Loans

Posted by Mr.Copper @ 10:15 on January 6, 2020  

Typical houses here south shore Long Island, were $40,000 in 1970 (6%mtg) and still $40,000 in 1980 (18% mtg).

Take out your calculator.

Silver Bags $1,000 face were $25,000 at $35/oz. So two bags bought a house with change left over.

Gold at $700/oz meant 57 ounces of gold bought a house. These houses today run $400,000 to $600,000.

Houses cost 10 times more over 40 years. A very poor appreciation after figuring in interest property taxes and maintenance costs.

Most consumer products are 15 to 20 times more and higher. Look at cigarettes. .25 cents to $10. 40 times more making a $40,000 invest in cigarettes worth $1,600,000 a far better investment. If their stored well shelf life is ok.

Also in 1980 you could have bought 30 year gov’t bonds paying 16.8% with no call back provision. And no interest maintenance or property tax cost and very liquid.

You guys feel free to finish this. Duplicate those ratios or values for the next ten year cycle. Houses down and metals up in unison? Or houses stay flat and metals catch up? Wow on that one. Maybe I’ll go over that later myself.

More reasons to hammer the PM shares and Oil

If Turkey takes over Libya, then it will control the refugee/immigration problem into Europe, out of Africa, via Libya, as well as the Eastern one…..Erdogan will have the EU by the balls and can demand billions more….

“The rig is alive and well”

Alive and well for today but what will the weeks to come bring?

No doubt for today with the cretins running their shenanigans.

A bigger dust up with the Iranians means their oil facilities get attacked and Saudi Arabia’s in return, with the closure of the Straits. Probably some good risk-reward set ups in the oil space. The end of the Saudi’s Kingdom is a possibility.

Yeah it could want to go up to 1700 maybe a bit higherish although people like round numbers.
