Gold & currency expert Alasdair Macleod joined The Doc & Eric Dubin this week for an EXPLOSIVE show discussing: 

  • End game to Russian Ruble collapse: Putin may take the Ruble onto the GOLD STANDARD- if Russia detonates this Nuclear Financial Weapon, the West is DEAD! 
  • Macleod: ABSOLUTELY NO GOLD STOCK IN THE MARKET SUB $1200!
  • Did the US/Saudi Arabia plan the oil crash to collapse Russia & the Ruble? -Putin’s counter-move could result in an EPIC BACKFIRE for the West
  • Is a Global currency crisis is in the making!?!
  • Alasdair provides his outlook on gold & silver, and explains why 2015 is likely to be an EXPLOSIVE YEAR for the metals after a prolonged consolidation- but PM investors won’t like what comes along with MASSIVELY HIGHER gold & silver prices!

Renowned silver guru David Morgan joins Reluctant Preppers to discuss the evidence for realizing that the United States is following the final stage of all empires – the collapse stage – in this episode named after the documentary, “The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.”
After previously stating silver would bottom at $30, Morgan makes his call on whether the bottom is finally in. 
Morgan provides an overview on Silver fundamentals- have they deteriorated since 2008 or are they stronger than ever? 
David concludes by discussing just how much silver is enough to survive the coming debt apocalypse? 
David Morgan’s full MUST LISTEN interview is below: 

gold market tipping

In today’s trading, for the umpteenth time, gold surpassed the $1200 mark only to be repelled back.
Gold’s zenith was $1212.00 set at 5 am early this morning and its nadir at $1193.50 at 11 am (well after London’s second fix).
I strongly believe that gold at 1200 is very toxic to our bankers with the huge number of derivatives and forwards placed.

silver oil ratio

Based on the historic 1960’s oil-silver ratio, the current price of silver should be $50 an ounce!
According to the 1960’s Oil-Silver ratio of 1.3/1, the price of silver would have peaked in 2011 at $85.58, and would still be $50 with the current price of a barrel of oil at $64
The U.S. & Global Retirement Markets are being propped up by the Fed and foreign central banks.  Without this continued manipulation, the value of most paper assets would implode.  Furthermore, the coming peak of global oil production will be the final nail in the CENTRAL BANK’S COFFIN.

As the value of the highly leveraged financial-derivatives market heads south in earnest, investors will be forced to move back into hard assets, such as the precious metals and commodities.
This will push the value of these assets up to levels thought unimaginable.

$50 silver is coming… however that will probably be just the beginning stage of a much higher price in the future.

silver smash

The banksters obliterated gold and silver today as Russia announced an emergency rate hike of 650 basis points, raising rates on the Ruble from 10.5% to 17%, sending the USD plunging vs the RUB! 
Let’s head immediately to see the major data points for today:

Gold Eagle

Gold was the safe haven this week.
This week precious metals continued their recovery, with gold up $35 at $1220 and silver up about $1 at $17 Friday morning, thus building on the improved trend since gold bottomed nearly $90 lower at $1132 on 7 November.
Gold seems to be finding support at the 50-day moving average (MA), which currently stands at $1198 and now rising.
The 200-day MA is at $1246, which suggests supply at this level could cap the rise for the moment: these levels matter to technical traders.
On Comex there is evidence of some buying of gold futures, as opposed to bear closing, which is reflected in the rise in net contracts for the managed Money category shown in the chart below:

Bernanke-Dimon-Fed-Tunnel

The Doc and Eric Dubin from SilverDoctors & SD Bullion joined the SGTReport this weekend to talk about all things silver.
We discuss the new record in silver eagle sales and the fact that in ancient Rome, payment for a hard day’s labor was 1/10th of once ounce of physical silver.
Today, due to the massive manipulation, a person earning $50,000/year is compensated with the equivalent of 10-11 ounces of physical silver per day.
More than 100 times the historic norm — and it’s only possible because silver is the most manipulated, most undervalued tangible asset on earth.
The Doc points out that with the current silver gold ratio over 70 to 1, while the earth’s mining output in 2013 was a mere 8.3 to 1, a move to fundamental valuations could see silver place a 10 bagger vs gold!

In silver, the open interest fell by a small 823 contracts with yesterday’s rise in price of  $0.02.  Looks like some of the shorts are vacating the arena.
For the past year, we have been witnessing massive liquidation of contracts despite the fact that it cost nothing to roll.  This makes no sense and it smacks of cash settlements which are totally illegal.
Since I have been following comex data, I have never witnessed such a massive liquidation in both gold and silver. 

cliff edge

Notice the abrupt halt to the precious metals “rally”.  If the price spike was caused by enormous Speculator long buying enthusiasm, we would still be watching PM prices shoot or drift upwards.  This was a Commercial exercise, pure and simple.
It is very indicative of what will happen next year on a far larger scale where Speculator longs will be pounded “in the blink of an eye” by a Commercial short covering of gargantuan proportions.
Price will descend into the abyss for moments while pre-programmed Speculator short buying eats up shorts all the way to the bottom as Commercials gladly take the longs and the temporary “losses” and then WHAM price rebounds upward just as suddenly as it dropped.  But this time there will be no upper limit.

Price might just be about $14.15 (elite telegraphing the future?) this time next September when this event happens and may well dip into the $8 handle but when price rebounds minutes later it is not going to stop at $16.15 on it’s way to $100, $500, and beyond as trillions of dollars of paper fiat rush into commodities looking for a safe haven from what appears to be the repeat of the 2008 c rash.

bottom of the barrel

All GOFO rates moved closer to the positive and out of backwardation today- the bankers must have found a few bars to lease.  On the 22nd of September the LBMA stated that they will not publish GOFO rates.
It looks to me like these rates even though negative are still fully manipulated. London good delivery bars are still quite scarce.
The backwardation in gold is incompatible with the raid on gold. It does not make any economic sense.
Let’s head immediately to see the major data points for today:
