So, miscreanity, next month should show a sudden sharp rally for gold before the year's end, according to your thinking?

Yes, I'm still expecting a significant spike to the $2,000 range before year-end.

It's also becoming harder to lend any credibility whatsoever to official announcements; contradictory 'leaks' and rumors, reporting of large volume transactions in obscure locations, probably not disclosing even more. This is the same brinkmanship displayed by politicians earlier in the year, and it will run right up to the last moment.

The exchanges won't officially default, and there may be some truly sleazy tricks pulled to ensure that fact. MF Global was very likely an intentional effort to cull futures positions.

Only one day remains before clients notify the exchange of delivery requests. Gold OI is still 3x the stated warehouse stocks and silver OI remains at more than 2x available stocks, although preliminary numbers show the gold OI at 1.5x and silver OI almost even. Almost all of the contracts that bailed from December have rolled to February (gold) or March (silver).

Even with the PM Dec OI squeezing by, it is not in the bullion banks' best interests to simply deliver everything and leave nothing for the extreme demand during 1st quarter of 2012.

I looked into this. Very illuminating, all these people buying gold but no testing.

Conductivity only tests surface, acid only tests surface, specifc gravity can work but hard to be that accurate in small amounts.

XRay is better. Im thinking of buying one to help people test.

Hope this helps

The more testing services, the better. Plenty of scammers will flood the markets over the next several years. Another tool: ultrasonic testing.

For peace of mind, it's best to skip the deals that could easily turn out to not be such great deals by going with reputable dealers. Some beginning gold investing information.

Though you still think it is likely to fall back in Jan as it has the last three years?

To get to 2000usd by the end of December there will have to be a big rally like through August. That is entirely possible. Interesting to see what happens then...

What would happen if the ECB enacted QE next month? Would it take long before the US would need to answer in kind? How many bankers hold official positions and have protected financial institutions over all others? The banks will make some concessions over the next few months, but they'll get it all back and more shortly after - or else they'll lose all control.

There have been numerous large rallies in gold lasting less than one month (gold shot up >$100 at the beginning of this month). Unless another blatantly criminal act is committed, time's up for the CME and bullion banks. I think fresh fraud will be saved for early next year. QE fills the banks' coffers first, no matter where it comes from - that allows them to flood more money into the short side of the PMs (and/or pull their huge numbers of bids). That whipsaw action will knock out new longs in gold/silver through January, just in time to have brought down the open interest on the February and March gold & silver contracts as it has for years. If that doesn't work, they'll declare a bank holiday or find some other excuse to 'legally' avoid delivery.

Patterns arise for reasons, and this is a big one. I wasn't too concerned about exchanges defaulting this year, but I guarantee this is the last time contracts will be honored with any remnant of legitimacy. The final breaking of functional price discovery will occur in 2012 due to lack of participation in markets by anyone sane - the western markets will become the banks. At that point, gold will officially be quoted at insanely low values while everything else remains artificially elevated.

Another round of stimulus would allow the US to boost the illusion of prosperity just long enough to round out the year with either a re-election or another lackey set in place; if it's to be a final term for the current president, the gloves come off and the nation enters dictatorship under the guise of an emergency (war?).

I have some money in funds which contain commodities futures so I will get out on the next peak and go all into physical gold; the safest bet for the upcoming calamities. I have considered putting some money into stocks but prefer safety for now.

The price of gold has been held back so far this month. I've had little time to look into it.

Looks like people are still searching for the dollar devaluation. The current situation cannot last.

Isn't there some gold-related event on Dec. 22nd? I remember reading about it in the old gold thread.

End of the year and gold is doing what I was expecting it to do in January. With MF Global, all bets are off. I underestimated the impact and rapidity that incident would have, as well as the magnitude of printing. Nothing fundamental has change - the problems have actually gotten even worse. The existing system is so rotted out that there is virtually no way to win - it'll be an uphill battle to make enough paper gains to keep pace with base currency inflation, not to mention the changing whims of politicians and their laws.

According to Jim Willie, large entities on the buy side (opposition to JPM, et al) are now dumping paper on the markets in order to acquire metal at a discount and in quantity. In addition to professionals exiting these fraudulent paper-dominated exchanges, this is forcing the separation of value between the paper and physical gold markets.

Paper could easily stagnate or plummet while real assets become scarce, leading to shortages and higher prices despite officially-stated ones being relatively stable. The divergence in gold is enormous and accelerating. It really is physical or nothing now.

On the Bitcoin side, I'm noticing quite an increase in awareness and sustained capital inflow into the market on a weekly basis (minimum to maintain current price level is about $200,000 per week). Until the bubble, Bitcoin growth was over 9% and has so far slowed to around 8.4% - weekly. Reversion to the mean may bring that growth rate up further toward 9% again. The chart scale is logarithmic and shows a 5% post-bubble rate, as well as a 5% continuous growth rate for comparison.



For a cursory comparison, we can look at the progress of gold and bitcoin over about 80 years and 70 weeks, respectively. Aside from the artificially (and semi-arbitrarily) fixed rate gold was set at for nearly 40 years, the USD-denominated growth patterns are obviously similar. While correlation does not imply causation, existence of isometric patterns begs a deeper investigation of the underlying mechanisms. Again, the chart is logarithmic, with a relative basis of 1.00.

There are 2 points that people who buy gold need to understand.  First, you don't buy something when it's at record high levels, especially when you know it's been inflated because of changeable conditions.  Secondly, if economies start collapsing, nobody is going to be buying gold jewelry and it has very little industrial use.  Yeah, it's 500 microns thick on gold contacts on practically all electronic cabling but that's like $0.10 worth of gold on hard drive pins for example.  Yes it's a good inter-country medium if currencies collapse but it isn't going to be worth a damn thing if nobody wants it.  So anyone who bought into gold like 3 years ago, good for you, SELL IT!  Anyone looking to buy now is a crazy person and is totally going to lose their asses when it crashes.
