manipulation

The precious metals have been under the most intense and concentrated period of downward price manipulation by the Federal Reserve/U.S. Government that has occurred over the last 14 years, except for the summer/early fall 2008. Something really bad is occurring behind the scenes with our  economic and financial system that is not yet obvious.  
But I have a feeling we’ll soon find out.

Sinclair Hong Kong

With gold smashed to $1215, perhaps only a day or 2 from testing bear market lows at $1179 and silver plunging through substantial support at $18 to place new bear market lows Friday, legendary gold trader Jim Sinclair sent an email alert to subscribers stating that today’s trading action is  “a classic example of “Popular Delusions, and the Madness of the Crowd.
On a day when Alibaba IPO’d in the US with a market cap surpassing Walmart, Sinclair advised PM investors to study history & check their emotions at the door, stating that This is a period of time when major market changes have a high probability of happening, and that Today is a day that should be memorized. 
Sinclair’s full MUST READ market alert is below: 

manipulation

The intensity of the banks’ attacks on gold and silver prices have been long, drawn out, and merciless.
Since 2011, the banks have been hitting completely “below the belt”.   They are are now All-in on their efforts to cap gold & silver, because this time they understand: it’s for all the marbles.
Why have the precious metals been massacred since 2011?
The fate of the US dollar as global reserve currency hangs in the balance. 

The continuing strength of the U.S. dollar is bad news for the price of gold, and Eric Coffin believes that in the short term a price of $1,200/oz is possible, though there is room now for an oversold bounce.
This, of course, is bad news for gold miners and explorers.
But in this interview with 
The Gold Report, the publisher of Hard Rock Analyst counsels that even in a bull market investors are best advised to seek out the potential tenbaggers and presents several companies in gold, base metals and uranium with the potential to flourish even in the bad times. 

silver rocket down

Silver and gold have an upside down rocket attached to them and they have been speeding downwards ever since they made their highs in 2011 and 2012, respectively.
Never mind the fact they are spoken for and used up as soon as they hit the market, never mind the fact they are hard to amass in great quantity, never mind the fact demand is high and production is steady.
What happens next is like the final act of a masterful play.

Look for this depressing scenario in the precious metals markets to continue for another 12 months and then, WHAM!!, worldwide economic collapse- the commercials crash silver and gold, flip their short positions to long cashing in near the bottom and stripping massive amounts of money away from the little people in the process (they always do).
I fully expect there to be some ups and downs before that worldwide economic crash.
I use no caution whatsoever in urging everyone to liquidate as much paper as possible and buy physical silver and gold at these prices.
Yes, the depression is going to last another year but after that no one will be able to buy ANY PHYSICAL once the world wide collapse is in full swing.

silver

This year some 900,000 oz of silver on average have moved into or out from these six warehouses on a daily basis.
The daily average movement of silver into and out from the COMEX silver warehouses at 900,000 oz is equal to 28% of total world daily mine production.” -Ted Butler

Over 1 in every 4 ounces of silver that planet earth will bring out of the ground this year, will be shuffled through the vast halls of Comex warehouses.  Over 1 in 4.  The Comex system has gone from moving perhaps 1 million ounces of silver per week, to moving nearly 1 million ounces…per day!  In fact, in just the last two business days, the Comex has moved over a whopping 4 million ounces of silver!
As prices continue their descent for both gold and silver, it’s more important than ever to keep a clear focus on the implications of this price action, not just for investors like us(which are obvious), but also for those trying to orchestrate it.  It’s all a game of ounces in the end, for these banks, after all.  They must bring enough physical metal to deliver on their exchanges, both to investors, and to the industrial users.  There’s no “Plan B”.
Since both sources of demand won’t back off from their record level purchases, the bullion banks realize that they simply have to bring even more product to market. Their backs are against the wall hereThe moment the metal is not delivered to some large customer in size, is the precise moment the end to this game will begin.  That’s the Catch 22 of the situation though: the banks want lower silver prices, yet the lower the price goes, the more threatened their constant source of supply becomes.
The banksters are Trapped Like Rats

Only the Resolute Bulls Will Be Left Standing to Experience a Moon Shot to $2000 in 2014! 
Once all but the Resolute Bulls are wiped out, Gold and Silver will do an immediate price reversal and leave all who sold their Gold and Silver standing empty handed as the new 7-year Gold Bull market cycle Breaks away and runs into the end of 2014 and beyond!
Gold will spike in 2014 and the big question is will the spike hit $1600, $2000 or is $2000 much too low a target?
Cycle analysis gives price direction, NOT exact price,  so how high could the spike go?  

Only God knows; but the Gold Price Suppression Game that holds Gold down comes to an end in 2014!

Precious metals prices remain range-bound over the short-term after a devastating three year run.
From a technical standpoint, it doesn’t look great; we are stuck in this limbo of tightly controlled price limbo while the world continues to melt apart for the 99.9%.
COMEX positioning for the big banks and speculators has not changed that much over the last few months.
JPM’s short remains at around 50 days of world production.
In fact, these spec longs who have been hanging in throughout may be the reason we’ve remained range bound over the last couple of options expirations – like the one this week.
Prices are not going to move up from here until the paper pushers who control prices via the exchanges find a way to profit from it.

Gold analyst Bo Polny has been predicting since May that gold will trade at $2,000 in 2014. 
In the wake of the latest smash to $1225, is Bo changing his tune and will we soon see gold place a new low below $1180, or is gold’s next stop still an astonishing $2,000/oz with only 3 months remaining in 2014? 

my-shorts-on-fire

Gold and silver have been pounded lower over the past month, contrary to their bullish seasonals.  This selling pressure has come from the usual suspects, American futures speculatorsThey’ve been busy aggressively dumping gold and silver futures, particularly on the short side.  But each time they pressed this bet in the past 15 months, gold soon surged higher.
Shorts are bullish since they must soon be covered.

Silver has also seen a huge spike in speculator shorting, raising the odds it too is on the verge of its own parallel short-covering rally when gold’s starts.

On the 13th anniversary of the 9/11 tragedy, Tod Fletcher of Consensus911.org joins us for a power packed show, discussing: 

  • Latest PM smash as gold trades down towards $1225 and silver breaks $18.50: did the metals FINALLY bottom overnight Thursday into Friday, or is a capitulation crash coming on the Sunday night Globex session? 
  • First signs of renewed silver shortage appear along with DOZENS of new FIRST TIME SILVER BUYERS contacting SDBullion to enter the market Thursday and into Friday- a sign the 3 year correction is ending? 
  • The smoking gun that 9/11 is a Conspiracy FACT
  • Tod reveals his view on the MOTIVES behind the largest False Flag attack in US history- was it war, the security/surveillance state, gold theft/cover up, OR ALL3?

banker treason

It’s easy to begin to think that everyone knows that there are no free markets in gold and silver,but the truth is that most folks don’t even know what gold and silver are.
I’m not saying these things to discourage our troops, on the contraryit’s astounding to think that the silver “market” is close to breaking, with so few people even knowing about silver, much less that its price is manipulated!
Not 1 person in 10,000 knows that gold and silver are manipulated by Western Central banks and bullion banks.
Yet, there’s not even enough silver in the world right now to deliver to that 1 in 10,000!  That’s my point.  That’s what makes this all so surreal.
I know it doesn’t feel like it sometimes, but the silver market riggers are losing, and badly.  The consciousness about this issue is slowly changing, there’s no doubt about it.
Do not fear $17 or even $15 silver, should it come, and it may.  The more hilariously low these banks press it, the quicker they will beat themselves.
Do not fear this game continuing indefinitely, for despite how it feels on days like today, this silver and gold rigging game cannot and will not last forever, either.
Laugh at their games, and know their end is coming, for the extreme desperation of these banks will hasten the day upon which this crime in progress will be finished.

The latest COT reveals the commercials very involved in this latest price crash.
In gold, we see speculators packing on 16,790 shorts and a huge short covering by the commercial.  That’s some 2.14 Billion in additional shorts by the speculators!
The latest cartel raid continues the long depression in precious metals as gold and silver are still going down, down, down, South of the Border!
It may take a little longer but a price rebound is coming which will bring interest in precious metals into focus again as they need to keep up this façade of a real market for another year into 2015.75.

There is not one journalist (of any mainstream “news gathering organization”) who is working to uncover what could be thestory of the century.”
There’s a sentence (a “mind frame” really) that applies to such frustrating scenarios. 
 “Sh*t, I’ll do it my freaking self.
Here are 17 ways the precious metals miners can fight back against PM manipulation by the banking cartel:

If you want to know why your holdings of physical gold and silver have remained under suppression, it is because both are anathema to paper fiat currencies, and the ones who are in control, the moneychangers, will not tolerate competition against their fiat Ponzi monopoly scheme.
Not until the elite bankers lose control of the fiat US “dollar” can you expect to see dramatic price increases for gold and silver, irrespective of any and all fundamentals and more widely recognized efforts of manipulation.
The only way the elites can exist is through deceit, hiding behind the scenes but unquestionably in total control, with emphasis on the word “total.”  If anyone is of the limiting belief that the Rothschilds, moneychangers, bankers, New World Order [NWO] is some kind of conspiracy theory, either take the time and do some studied research on factual events and read several  court cases, or simply stay the course for being fleeced and enslaved by unwitting assent.
