In the latest SD Weekly Metals & Markets The Doc & Eric Dubin discuss:

  • Massive rally in gold & silver sends silver up 10% on the week to $21.50, & gold up $60 to $1320
  • Outlook for next week: Look for follow-through buying Monday, then cartel capping to re-emerge
  • We revisit The Doc’s bottom call on 12/21- is the 3rd phase of the great secular gold & silver bull underway?
  •  More bankers turning up dead:  WTF is going on?

The SD Weekly Metals & Markets With The Doc & Eric Dubin is below:

Wednesday we reported that another JP Morgan banker has been found dead, as the latest banker to meet a sudden and untimely demise is Ryan Henry Crane, the Executive Director in JPMorgan’s Global Equities Group.
Today, Steve Quayle’s banker source “V”, who predicted that a wave of banker hits was imminent when the very first bankers began dropping last week, has dropped a bombshell regarding the death of Ryan Henry Crane. 

V states that Crane oversaw all of the trade platforms and worked closely with Gabriel Magee of JPM’s London desk (who fell 32 stories off the JPM London roof moments after texting his g/f he would be home shortly), and that the pair had access to the exact same info.
V concludes Crane & Magee: “Knew each other and had uncovered something“. 

V’s update on the latest JPMorgan banker to turn up dead is below:

The long anticipated Gold & silver short squeeze has begun as gold has exploded after retesting $1300 overnight, and my-shorts-on-fireis now up nearly another $20 today to $1321.
Silver has been even more impressive, up nearly $1 on the day to a high of $21.38.
Should silver be able to clear $21.50, an astonishing short squeeze would be likely- potentially propelling the metal to $22.50-$23 before pausing.
As both metals appearing to be launching another vertical move to the upside, Friday is shaping up to be an explosive trading day to end gold & silver’s massive week!

Another JP Morgan banker has been found dead, as Ryan Henry Crane, the Executive Director in JPMorgan’s Global Equities Group was found dead in his Stamford Ct home Monday at the age of 37.
While there is no official word yet as to the cause of death, Crane’s death follows last week’s “suicide” of another JPMorgan banker in London (which is now under investigation by London police), and follows 5 other suspicious banker “suicides” in the past week.
The last banker reportedly managed to shoot himself nearly 10 times with a nail gun.  We wonder what the official story will be for Mr. Crane’s untimely demise?

Jim Willie gunThe Doc sat down with the Golden Jackass himself this weekend for an in-depth interview covering the state of the gold market and the Western banking system.
Willie discusses the German efforts to repatriate their gold reserves (along with the implications of only receiving 5 tons from the NY Fed in year 1), as well as Bafin’s investigation into precious metals manipulation and why unlike the CFTC’s, it is likely to result in criminal charges.
Finally, courtesy information provided by a high level executive at one of the world’s leading private refineries, Willie reveals the ‘smoking gun‘ evidence that proves US gold was rehypothecated over a decade ago!

Jim Willie’s full MUST LISTEN interview with The Doc is below:

Financial crisis fears are spiking this afternoon as one of Russia’s largest 200 banks by assets, ‘My Bank’ has reportedly halted all cash withdrawals for one week.
Officials of My Bank have refused to comment after news of the bank halting all withdrawals was leaked early Monday by a call center employee.

Germany BundesbankThe Bundesbank has dropped a DIESELBOOM on the European markets Monday morning, calling on Eurozone nations about to go bankrupt (ie Greece, Italy, Portugal, & Spain) to initiate a one-off capital levy bail-in on their wealthiest citizens prior to asking other nations (read Germany) for bail-out help.
Yes, you read that correctly, the most powerful Central Bank in the Eurozone has just openly called for Eurozone wide bail-ins. 

dollar collapse panic*Update: China Compass is denying Forbes’ Gordon Chang’s report, stating: The PBOC has not—repeat not—asked Citibank to stop customers from wiring funds... Chang’s understanding of Chinese culture evidently does not extend to the timing of bank holidays.

It appears that China’s credit crunch liquidity crisis ahead of this week’s impending default of Credit Equals Gold wealth product is intensifying, as the Chinese Central Bank has just ordered commercial banks to halt all domestic renminbi bank transfers for 3 days, and renminbi foreign currency conversions for 9 days!
