The Price Of Gold Must Never Embarrass The Chairman On A Day He Speaks Publicly :: Jim Sinclair's Mineset

The Price Of Gold Must Never Embarrass The Chairman On A Day He Speaks Publicly :: Jim Sinclair's Mineset | Accounting News | Scoop.it

Dear CIGAs,

 

Paper Gold must cease to function. Manipulation without even a concern to conceal is no longer acceptable. Gold bullion must be emancipated from no gold paper gold. The key to the emancipation of physical gold from paper gold is the warehouse supply held primarily by the COMEX.

 

This supply of gold has been in a distinct and significant down trend for which under present circumstances there seems little relief. Instead of the manipulation of gold lower stopping physical gold demand, it ignited a volume bull market in physical gold during a price bear phase in paper gold.

 

The Gold banks can be counted on to see their views as the word of a gold-man god. They still feel physical demand is an aberration that they, being all powerful and mighty, can extinguish by pounding paperless gold anytime it sticks its head up. This time they are so wrong.

 

The publishing of the concept of bail-in at the highest financial levels everywhere in the Western Financial World has you, me and every thinking person afraid to leave significant funds on deposit in any bank. It makes the products that banks sell (which are all some form of deposit) the last item any intelligent person wants in their portfolio.

 

Everyone knows this economic recovery is hanging on by a wing, a prayer and lots of lies. Everyone knows the balance sheets of the major banks in the USA are total cartoons as a product of FASB allowing banks to value their OTC derivative paper at any price they select. Many wise people suspect that if the inventory of major banks was to be held to discipline of valuing it at something like what it could be sold for, the banks would have more colossal losses. ...
