Gold, Golf, & Silver are Similar

Gold, Golf, & Silver are Similar

Trust that silver prices will be driven, like professional golfers drive a golf ball, much farther and faster than most of us appreciate. Trust that after four plus years of declining prices, silver will eventually reach the target zone of higher prices and recognized value in the next phase of the magnificent games of golf, gold, and silver.

Ted Butler: Price Takers and Price Makers

No one speculative trader would be allowed to buy or sell 10%, 20% or 40% of any commodity market in a short period of time and neither should a small group of traders, trading in lockstep, be allowed to do the same. Remember we’re talking about a very small number of managed money traders, close to 30 or 50 traders in most markets. Why should 30 or 50 purely speculative CME traders be allowed to set the price for the millions and even billions of world participants who must then take the prices dictated to them?

Ted Butler: Suing JPMorgan and the COMEX

Ted Butler: Suing JPMorgan and the COMEX

Here I am, directly and consistently accusing two of the world’s most important financial institutions of market manipulation (making sure I send each all my accusations) and I have received no complaint from either. I don’t think that has ever occurred previously. Now I am taking it one step further; presenting a guide for how and why JPMorgan and the CME should be sued for their manipulation of gold, silver, and copper.

Gold And Silver Shorts Were The Real Demise For Bear Stearns

What baffles me today is that no well-known journalist from outside the gold and silver world has yet picked up on what is an easy-to-document story of epic historical proportions. It’s the story of why Bear Stearns went under, and how the gold and silver price manipulation continued since the day JPMorgan took over Bear. I think the story has Pulitzer Prize written all over it.

Bankers Can [Will] Steal Your Cash But Cannot Touch Your Gold/Silver

Financially smart people own and personally hold, and continue to buy gold and silver, the most durable “wealth” preserver of all. The word “wealth” is used for lack of a better choice in the asset class of precious metals. There has been no wealth preservation owning gold and silver for the past few years, stated and acknowledged. The choice is simple: paper or hard assets? Owning gold or silver ETFs or futures are paper and not a claim on the physical. Accept no substitutes.

Is JP Morgan Ending Its Death Grip On The Gold Market?

Is JP Morgan Ending Its Death Grip On The Gold Market?

The good news is that the question of how JPMorgan came to dominate gold and silver will be asked more frequently in the future because it has to be asked by anyone with the slightest concern for cause and effect. Then it will be a very short distance to understanding that there is no legitimate answer. This is why I believe that JPMorgan has remained mute in the face of growing allegations of wrongdoing. That’s also why I am sensitive to JPM not buying more gold over the past month because it suggests we may be near the end game where the bank, not able to justify its positions, instead looks to end its death grip on the market.

Ted Butler: JP Morgan Holds 2 Corners In The Gold And Silver Market

The only reason we ever go down in price in gold and silver is that the commercials, but mainly JP Morgan, can buy contracts. And the only reason they buy them is to make money; the way they make money is they eventually sell it. So they’re going to move this position eventually.

Contrary To Popular Belief, Paper Is The Bellwether For Near-Term Precious Metals.

Weekly trend remains down. There was evidence of a potential upside breakout rally, two weeks ago, but no follow-through. It is possible last week was a supporting retest, but that will have to be confirmed by higher prices in the week coming, or gold will continue to languish in its paper malaise.

Chris Martenson: Fractional Gold Lending At Work

It feels to me that this move was designed to scare off weak hands and pull it into the official part of the system to cover the leasing. And the best way to get something from someone is to convince them that they should not want it.
