Not much happening, or is there?

It’s a holiday today and, over the last couple of weeks, there hasn’t been much market action to speak of. Lots of background noise to digest, but the markets aren’t giving much in the way of clues.

Or maybe they are?

In this week’s video, I tell you about the telltale signs I’m watching for in gold, silver, the dollar and the Dow.

Best,

Larry

Video Transcript

Good morning, this is Larry Edelson with my Uncommon Wisdom video market update for Monday, February 20. Today’s a holiday, so there’s not much happening in any of the markets around the world, and of course the U.S. markets are closed. But we’re also likely to see light trading in the overseas markets.

I’m actually recording this ahead of the holiday due to my travel schedule. So what I’m talking about today may be a few days behind the actual market action, but I don’t expect much to happen.

Right now, we’re seeing a lot of sideways action in virtually all markets. The reason for that is primarily there is just too much background noise going on with Europe’s crisis, with the riots and Greece’s crisis, with Iran’s saber-rattling, and lots of mixed economic news coming out all over the globe. So the markets are really digesting this, trying to determine which way to go.

Let’s go to the gold chart. This is the gold chart that I showed you a couple of weeks ago. You can see gold is still below resistance here.

It might pop a little bit higher in here, but it’s going to find incredible resistance between $1,780 and $1,805. I still believe the next big move is to the downside, so I’m maintaining my bearish view here.

Now let’s take a look at silver. Silver, largely the same thing. It’s trying to hold its gains and probably will test a little bit higher, some overhead resistance. But here too, all my cycle work, my momentum indicators, and my other technical indicators indicate that the next big move is to the downside and we will take out this low in the $26 range. I know it’s trying all of our patience, but I maintain my bearish view on silver.

Now let’s take a look at the dollar. The dollar index is largely what most of the markets are waiting for here. We did start to see what I indicated to you previously — a bounce off of support and the Dollar Index is now starting to rally again. That’s good news for the bearish position.

I’m not a bull on the dollar. I do expect a continued rally in the short term for the dollar against the euro. Long term, the dollar remains in a very precarious situation.

Now here’s my chart of the Dow, updating from the last time. We’re still at this triple-top formation here.

The Dow’s strength is actually quite interesting to me, and its strength is surprising me in the sense that it’s acting stronger than I expected … earlier than I expected.

As you know, I expect a roaring new bull market in the Dow Industrials and the S&P 500 stocks as the dollar goes into another tailspin and as Europe continues to go down the toilet.

A lot of capital from Europe is going to head into the U.S. stock market. I do think it’s a bit premature and most of my models continue to remain bearish … looking for another sharp pullback in the Dow.

I don’t think at this point we will get down to 9,100, but I would not be surprised to see 10,600 again, 10,800, the low 11,000 before the next leg up in stocks really begins, which will take the Dow to well over 20,000 over the next few years.

So having said that, enjoy the rest of the holiday today. And stay tuned to everything I publish and comment on this week.

Best wishes,

Larry

Your thoughts on “Not much happening, or is there?”

  1. Larry Edelson: I appreciate your comments and your holding to your beliefs, but my feeling is in the investing world one must take advantage of those moves we call intermediate. That’s what has made success for me in investing. To wait for that one big move and miss 3 or 4 relatively good moves has not been profitable for me. Silver has gone from $25 to $34 in a relatively short period and a couple intermediate increases like that can add up over a relatively short period of time.
    Still enjoy watching your comments. James Hagele

  2. What is keeping the Dow from the 9000 level is the incredible money printing from the FED through cheap dollar swaps and the printing from the ECB with almost 1.5 to 2 Trillions by the end of this month, without it the Dow would have tank a long time ago and the bears would have not being licking their wounds.

  3. Larry, I subscribe and read your stuff all the time. You are right on everything nearly always and I’ve prospered when I follow you and bite my tongue when I don’t and lose out. However, this is the first time I’ve written. You claim your charts are giving us a serious drop in gold and silver before they skyrocket up. Yet some of your fellow gurus who I respect are touting the soon to open Asian commodities exchanges as the death of the US. exchanges manipulated monopoly markets on commodities, particularly silver which has been obvious manipulated by Morgan Stanley et. al. They claim a big “pop” is going to take silver to triple or quadruple its present value and a big rise in gold as well (not quite as manipulated).

    What about these Asian exchanges coming on line and putting the value of silver more in line with its real worth because of its industrial demand and rarity ??? And what about their trading in gold as well, trading not in dollars but in Yuan ???

  4. What do you think about 16 years cycle in US dollar suggesting the end of bear market in USD and strong rally starting this year? Would be shocking…however the track record for last 100 years is quite impressive for this cycle. I would greatly appreciate your comments!

  5. OPINIONS OF SOME BIG PLAYERS (quoted from Moneynews and Bloomberg – Feb.20,2012):

    “Despite the strong start to global markets this year, the underlying sentiment is still one of fear,” said Chris Weafer, the chief strategist at Troika Dialog, an investment bank in Moscow. “Until the euro zone debt crisis is put to bed, all assets, even gold, are in the risk category.”

    Investors should avoid gold because its uses are limited and it lacks the potential of farmland or companies to produce new wealth, Warren Buffett, the billionaire chairman of Berkshire Hathaway Inc., wrote in an adaptation of his annual letter to shareholders that appeared on Fortune magazine’s website on Feb. 9.

    Vinik Asset Management LP, Tudor Investment Corp. and SAC Capital Advisors LP sold shares in the SPDR Gold Trust in the fourth quarter, filings showed this week. George Soros, the billionaire founder of Soros Fund Management LLC, raised his stake to 85,450 shares from 48,350.

    Record investment drove gold demand to 4,067.1 tons last year, the most since 1997, the World Gold Council estimates.
    ————————————————————————————————————————————-
    As usual, you get it both ways!

  6. BURNING GREECE AND PINCHED MIDDLE CLASS–OPPRESSED POORER CLASSES
    Meanwhile, Greece burns as the people protest austerity, which they believe is a heist of their money by the big boys.And, when winter finally melts away and temps warm up, will we see a resurgence in the Occupy Wall Street demonstrations?

    As the middle class in America continues to get pinched, and as countless millions in the growing class of the working and non-working poor continue to suffer, how many will become desperate? How many will resort to desperate measures to survive and get by?

    THE BANKS AREN’T PAYING OUT ANYTHING—NOT ONE DIME!

    The public thinks the big banks just got hit up for a payment settlement of $27billion. NOT SO! They don’t have to pay one thin dime! All that money is simply what they supposedly won’t collect from people when they give refinance their mortgages. Meanwhile STRATEGIC DEFAULTS will continue to rise as prices continue to plummet in many markets. Vegas has had a 60%+ drop in home values since 2006! Florida has much the same and still falling.

    RISING GASOLINE
    How do you all like that $4+ gas? Still buying big SUV’s? This will REALLY press the poorer classes causing great suffering.

    THERE IS HOPE!

    But, have no fear, as behind the scenes investigations continue. Mass arrests of culprits loom. Changes are on the way!

    BANKS CRYING AGAIN

    Soon we could see a handful of big banks once again crying that they are on the verge of collapse and demand bailouts. Among the shakiest are BofA, JP Morgan, and Goldman. The game goes on, but not forever. Soon the masks will come off and everyone shall see who was pulling the strings behind the scenes all along.

    1. FS:

      I too honestly enjoy your posts. For as much grief as people toss your way, you do consistently shed light on alternative outcomes the zeitgeist ignores.

      “RISING GASOLINE
      How do you all like that $4+ gas? Still buying big SUV’s? This will REALLY press the poorer classes causing great suffering.”

      This will be a huge problem. Living in Southern California, we are paying $4-4.30 for a gallon of gas right now. We will likely see $5.00+ by summer. A few years back when we saw $4.30-$4.80 people changed their lifestyles, stopped spending money to compensate for their gas bills. State park / tourist destination visits were down, SUV/trucks were being sold off below inventory, rural housing took a HUGE hit, retail and restaurants took a hit. This will put a huge dent in the “financial recovery” (a debatable topic in and of it self).

      As you say, beware the ides of March, if not, April, May or June. There is a storm on the horizon.

  7. So he comes back out of the woodwork, after hiding for two weeks, to say his 3x short SDOW was a bad call and all your other losers may someday become winners. Now that you have lost tons of money, he wants you to believe in him? Not happening. Run away as fast as you can.

    1. Yes I noticed he changed his dow forecast much higher than what he has been saying the last 4-6 months? So, if his new estimate ofr a low is 10,600-10,800 htat would meant eh dow is officially back in a bull market as that would mean new highs and higher lows. When the Dow finally pulls back one of these times he will once again say ” I have been right as rain”

      1. I’m waiting for Larry to get bullish, then I’ll know it’s time to take money off the table.

  8. yes, I have been a big supporter of Larry for several years now but this DOW 9000 call was a big WHIFF, a huge swing and miss. Larry failed to realize that the constant printing of money which for the short term will continue is the catalyst behind a big equity run! China, USA, ECB all in a currency war which means equities go straight up until the paper becomes toxic in which case stocks will get hammered. However, this probably won’t happen till late 2013. Timing is everything in these markets and Larry’s has been very poor. No doubt about it!

  9. Yes this is total backpedaling by Larry. I was always questioning how his “indicators” could have been showing long-term big strength in the Dow, but a short term crash? I think that’s an impossibility.

  10. PS I don’t mean that it’s impossible for the market to crash, I just mean that an indicator can’t be showing both a bull market and crash at the same time.

  11. For those that still believe so-called Precious Metals are rare on Earth, here’s an article that shows you what was found on just one ship—-and those ships full of treasure made the journey across the Atlantic from the New World to Spain constantly for over a hundred years!

    http://finance.yahoo.com/news/spain-sending-military-planes-retrieve-170530801.html

    This hint adds to the many I have given already. Where is all that massive treasure today? It did not just disappear. Much of it ended up somewhere–by plan and purpose–and I was hoping one of you would figure it out before I spill the beans.

    And, how does all that figure into the bigger picture of what is even now transpiring behind the scenes, which will shock your shoes off when you find out?

  12. In the ages-long geologic record of Earth, scientists have now discovered that evolution did NOT proceed only in long slow gradual change, but that, at times, great leaps occurred. They also found, when studying the ancient strata that there were cyclical periods of mass destruction.

    Biologists, physiologists, and other medical researchers who study the human body once believed that human physical growth occurs very slowly and gradually. Then, they were SHOCKED to discover that the leg bones in teenage boys could have growth spurts of fractions of an inch in one night!

    Mankind is currently experiencing this “growth spurt”—-a speeding up in his evolution.

    Here’s a quote from BBC Science: Body and Mind:

    “Many teenagers shoot up so fast that their brains cannot keep up. As their height increases, their centre of gravity lifts. This happens so quickly that the brain does not get a chance to calculate the new rules for balancing. Clumsiness is often unavoidable.”

    Mankind is still like a teenager–naive, ignorant, awkward, clumsy, selfish—and needs to grow up. Growing pains are in order. His brain and character and spiritual development need to catch up with his physical (technological) advancements, or he will destroy himself.

    This analogy to all of mankind is very appropriate at this time. As these rapid “inner” changes take place in humans now there will be a period of bewilderment, confusion, and “clumsiness.” Accompanying those inner changes there will be massive “outer” changes as the old institutions, customs, ways of life, rules of doing things, and mindsets begin to dissolve away—-giving way to the new energies EVEN NOW entering our sphere.

    Just like a human teenager whose young immature mind cannot YET imagine what he will be thinking like and what his outlook will be when he becomes a mature man, so mankind as a whole cannot yet imagine what it will soon become until the changes actually take place—-and they will. Growing up is inevitable.

    These are exciting times to be alive.

  13. Exciting times to be alive? Humans act today like parasites. Like worms in an apple; their aim is to destroy the planet they live on. Progress has a parabolic character, but as we know from charts, parabolic trend is not sustainable. What will happen when we can enhance one’s longevity to 200 years? All this civilisation and its ‘progress’ is a big lie. If a psycho can invent and build new tools for his games in a faster manner doesn’t mean that he makes progress in terms of social and mental health. Organ transplants, immunity to all bacteria, defiance of space, longer and more painful old age…what for? Is humanity about to take off from Earth? These are sad times to be alive, 15 years of work to buy a house. A family used to build a house in 2 months a few centuries ago. With no banks and credit, regulations and experts. If we compare our minds to the minds of humans from 3000 years ago, we didn’t make any progress.

    1. Like I said—the cynical, arrogant, selfish teenager has NO CONCEPT of the mind he will later develop as a mature and caring adult. The darkness comes before the storm, then the Sun comes out again.

      We are on the verge of a huge evolutionary leap for mankind. But, now, very few have the capacity to visualize the changes that are coming. Pessimism, cynicism, selfishness, and confusion prevails.

      But your big brother–caring and thoughtful— who is long past that difficult time of life, looks at you compassionately and says, “It won’t always be so hard. Things will change. You’ll see!”

      At present, the many still CANNOT visualize the coming changes and how they will revolutionize the world, but the numbers of those who can are growing by the day.

      An ancient saying: YOU CREATE YOUR OWN REALITY.

      When enough people turn away from greed, selfishness, cynicism, and hate miracles can happen. When those negative things are purged from the consciousness of millions it will begin dynamic world changes for the better.

      But, a cynical closed mind, blinded by all the current darkness, cannot yet perceive the golden dawn.

      But, IT IS COMING!

  14. I bought SLV @ 28 and sold @ 30.5 because Larry keeps on with this correction coming. Waiting. Maybe if SLV climbs to 39 and then corrects to 32 Larry can say he was right. But here I am with a pocket full of cash waiting. Waiting Larry… I’m waiting to make money Larry on this correction to 26. sigh

  15. I am a RWR subscriber and feeling very worried about following Larry, especially when my monthly paid newsletter, dated friday Feb. 17, says,

    The Dow Industrials have indeed pressed the upper extremes of intermediate-term resistance at
    the 12,800 level — but here too all of my work suggests a sharp, sudden decline is in the offing, and
    Dow 9,100 is not yet off the table

    He says he wrote today’s report before the weekend, so I guess he wrote today’s uncommon wisdom the same day he sent me the report I paid for, and he changes his DOW prediction dramatically….HMM…I don’t fault him for not being right all the time, but you have to be more clear than this, and when your previous predictions were wrong, admit it, don’t just blow your horn when you are right and then act like nothing happened when you are wrong.

  16. hi larry what happenened to you ? bad information from china ? maybe !! anyone can predict huge gold in 2 years !! talk to me !! flip flopping is killing you !! get out on your own ! take some pressure off you ! you are killing you ! not worth your health ! i can sell you !!!! as soon as you are out from under the heat ! you have to get on your own !! murphys law must be reversed !! viet weed good charlie !! bob

  17. I live in Chiang Mai, Thailand. In Chiang Mai we are seeing our first active “high season” in five years. Typically, Chiang Mai receives a lot of tourist traffic from December-February when people living in Europe want to escape the cold. But for the last five years tourist spending in the shops, restaurants and bars has been low, until now. So as far as I can see, things are not so bad around the world.

  18. Larry, if you are going to record your comments days in advance, please tell us exactly when you are recording it.

  19. Where were you last week, Larry? Someone posted that you were missing in action. Unaccounted for by Weiss. Whereabouts unknown. Your weekly post was missing too.

  20. How many people in the darkness and slaughter of the French and Indian War, the War for Independence, and the Napoleonic Wars of the late 18th and early 19th centuries could envision the glory the newborn American nation would achieve?

    Who could have seen the great institutions of learning, the great architecture, the brilliant technologies, the labor saving devices, the charitable missions, the brilliant and creative artistic contributions, that great athletes, the cultural achievements that the Americans would make while we were still rag-tag colonial peasants struggling for survival against the mightiest Empire on Earth at the time (the Brits—the “evil empire” of that day)?

    At that time—to the average person—things looked pretty bleak. The new Continental government was flat broke. Washington didn’t even have enough money to pay his ill-clothed, ill-equipped, cold and hungry troops. The nation was besieged by traitors within (one-third remained loyal to the King) and vastly superior and powerful enemies without. The odds were monumental that the new nation would NOT survive.

    Yet, a few visionary minds—the Founding Fathers—-KNEW otherwise. Their vision is enshrined in symbols on the dollar bill and the Great Seal of the United States. Still, it remains an undeciphered mystery to most.

    All through history the many have lacked vision, foresight, and fortitude. The few—more enlightened and noble—have ALWAYS led the way, because they KNEW looked BEYOND the present darkness. Without them mankind would indeed have not survived. The seed of the race is the “advance” evolution. They mirror what most will someday become. It takes time. Just as it takes time for an infant to grow into a teen and a teen to grow into a mature man.

    And, the process is NEVER easy!

    There are ups and downs along the way—evolution and devolution—enlightenment and barbarism. But, little by little, step by step, we rise toward what we were meant to be. And now, we are at the very dawn of a new age of enlightenment.

    1. To perceive the past of mankind as dark, fearful and ragged is a pure illusion resulting from misinformation.
      To perceive future as bright or whatever is a preception flaw in today’s humans : 2000 years ago humans were aware that expectations toward the future which will be always missed cannot detract from the present if you want to be logical and consistent in life.
      The western civilisation is a missed conception as it targets human limitations and fears. Surprisingly, the result is more and more negativity. Happiness of living has gone, ‘I worry therefore I am’, thats now the selfawareness. Looks like this civilisation turns people into control, stress and fear freaks. Go to the East or South, you will find happy smiling faces.
      Leaps of progress…certainly, they are easy to see. For example equal rights for women and taxation of their work which is an outright destruction of family. Along with the introduction of income tax it will be the reason why the Muslim nations will conquer the western world. Better life for everyone thanks to the scentific progress. Glorious nature forces used to dispose of weak humans in various ways, so that the young humans could replace the older in due time with no neccessity of caring for the unproductive ones. Today, thanks to social help network the weak, diseased and old have a better life than young hard working. Baby boomers want to live forever leaving for the X generation restaurant jobs for life. Coquering the space and climate, how great and hopeful! The nature used to keep the human population in check so that there was enough space and food for everyone. Now, thanks to the ‘progress’ there is an owergrown population –
      parabolically growing. Living in a tiny house or flat, close to the roaring motorway one can only dream about living by the lakeside, drinking pure water and catching edible fish. Less people means better life for everyone.
      Somehow all seem to agree that more humans is better. The missinformation is essential for the civilisation to continue. No coincidence that Spartakus, representing the Majority of inhabitants of the Roman Empire wanted only one thing : to get out, into the barbarian world. Unfortunalety we must believe in progress and future, it keeps this current global human order intact. Because our lives are so improved now…those in Eastern Europe still not only remember but also experience the real taste of meat, tomatos, eggs and milk. In the west, even the most expensive organic food just doesn’t compare. So much for the 50 years progress in agriculture.

  21. Larry please let us know when we should buy gold. How low do you think it will go and what effect do you think a win by the Republicans in November would have? I do realize their chances are low given that they want to eliminate Social Security – the people’s backup retirement plan, criminalize birth control, etc, but hypothetically, what would happen if they get in. No doubt the debt would explode as they lavish trillions on defense contractors as they did under Reagan, and this time no doubt Wall St and the bankers would get their trillions as well, and all paid for by impoverishing the old people of the future by eliminating Social Security.

    Farting Softly, since you obviously know everything there is to know, you must be the richest MoFo walking. All I want is $2,000,000 – 1 for me, and 1 for my spouse – so we can live happily ever after in peace. Please send me the paltry sum of $2 Mil and I will be forever grateful to you and you can bask in the knowledge of the happiness you made to one human on this barbarous planet.

    Seriously Larry, keep us informed if it is time to buy the shiny for any reason. This waiting game is getting old. Keep up the good work.

    1. I am amazed at how many persons actually believe a certain sum money will guarantee their happiness.

    1. If truth be told—-both parties have served their masters well and to the detriment of the common people.

      Yet, read my comments below to see why even this fits into a greater outcome, making it fruitless to hate the perpetrators. Donkeys and elephants will continue to squabble, but it is superfluous, as what is going on behind the scenes will preempt these ridiculous posturings.

      The true control remains unseen—-for now.

  22. I keep getting censored on here, yet “farting softly” spews his gas freely.

    Hey Larry, on 11/7 and again on 11/14 I bet (on his blog) that we’d see DOW 12,700 before we see DOW 9,000. I offered to buy you a fine bottle of Scotch if I was wrong, but asked that you refund my subscription fees if I was right. On 12/5 I repeated on your blog that the market would go higher and it’s up 9% since then. We’re now over 12,900. How is it that your readers are right and you’re wrong? How about sending me that refund (or a fine bottle of Scotch … a 10-15 yo Laphroaig will be fine enough)?

    I have no faith in whatever Eliot Wave mumbo-jumbo you’ve been smoking, but I do admire your integrity in openly admitting that you were “dead wrong” by going long at the zenith of silver and wrong again by going short at the nadir. Zero for two, you’re worse than a broken clock which is right twice a day, but at least you’re honest.

    Mike Larson is having a bi-polar cognitive dissonance moment by being short the markets while at the same time long stocks. He can’t seem to face the reality that his bearish calls were also wrong, but at least he quietly slumped away and quit screaming Armageddon!

    Prediction is a fool’s game, but I’m going to put another prediction out there anyway and bet yet another bottle of Scotch.

    Mid-Feb is seasonal slump, so we might see a brief “correction” soon, but these markets are going to keep climbing through May/Jun. After that is the seasonal Summer slaughter Jul thru Sep. Any major moves down in the Summer will be the excuse for QE. Godda get Obama elected again … must keep the money pumps going … can’t fight the Fed.

    As for gold and silver, we might see a slump in Feb which will be a buying opportunity. If gold goes up from here without a pause, then dump the dead weight of your gold hedges, hold what gold you got and enjoy the ride.

  23. And Larry says : ” TRUST ME …. gold to at least $ 1435 …. silver to $ 23 or MUCH lower …. ( Larry had oil to 67 ? ) …. hold those GLL …ZSL …SPXU …… there is a lot more downside to come …..TRUST ME !!!!
    People who think the low was in Dec. 2011 are all wrong … TRUST ME ” .

    1. I have to agree with Larry on silver. SLV can see 14.30 around early August…stick to your guns Larry! Have to agree with Charles Nenner: we will see the DOW down to 5,000 in about 32 months.

      1. See how many followers Larry has ? Read what Sandy has to say … DOW TO 5000 in 32 month .
        You better use ZSL …GLL and SPXU to survive .

  24. DOW crosses 13,000. I believe it was DavidX who put the wager on the DOW hitting 13,000 before it hit 9,000:

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/national/us-stock-futures-advance-after-europe-puts-together-deal-for-greek-bailout-dow-nears-13000/2012/02/21/gIQArDW4QR_story.html

    With that being said, who wishes to put their bets down. Which will we see first??

    Gold: $1,950 or $1,550…?

    Silver: $44 or $24…?

    Oil: $135 or $75…?

    Surely some of you have your inclinations?

    1. I just closed out big ZSL position before I got margin called! Couldn’t wait for you Lar! Got creamed on this one!!

    2. Larry’s blog so I’m inclined to check to Larry. Larry, you there? Check, raise or call?

  25. In a STUNNING reversal of his typical raging bull outlook on China, Weiss analyst, Tony Sagami came out with this warning today:
    ————————————————————————————————————————————–
    “There is no question that the Chinese economy is slowing, and there are some legitimate reasons to worry that China could tumble into something more painful than a soft landing.Heck, even some of China’s top leaders are worried, and that’s saying something. Now, you may not have heard any signals coming from them, but trust me, I know they’re there. That’s because …When Chinese Leaders Talk, I Listen!”
    —————————————————————————————————————————————-
    This is a monumental change from what Mr. Sagami has ALWAYS stated in the past. All his past recommendations were to “BUY, BUY, BUY CHINA!” Now, he is suggesting that his newsletter subscribers buy inverse ETFs to short China and get ready to possibly “run for the hills.”

  26. Someone’s comment about all the “smiling” faces in the East was interesting. I wonder why polls reveal that MOST all Chinese who have become extremely wealthy tycoons have hopes of moving West, NOT remaining in China.

    I also wonder why the second greatest influx of immigrants (after Mexicans) to California is from Asia?

    Perhaps the heavy smog stinging the eyes in Beijing or Shanghai is causing what appears to be the “smiles” he speaks of, which are more likely squints from the toxic irritation?

    I respect no nationality over any other. We are all members of the HUMAN family. Yes, there is much suffering now, and yes, industrialization did bring many “unnatural” ways of living, but I also NEVER said that such trends would continue, did I?

    When mankind finally grows up—AFTER some very painful lessons—like a teenager’s thinking changes after a near-death auto accident when he drank and drove—we WILL overcome the current problems and move on to better things.

    All through history civilizations rose and fell in cycles of development and subsequent collapse. 95% of ALL species that ever lived on planet Earth are extinct. What does this teach us?

    Creatures and “things” are transitory, but LIFE is eternal.

    Any man who fixes his mind upon only the negative things in life—the vexations and woes—and shuts his mind to the bigger picture, will be a miserable man indeed, live a life of dread, fear, and anxiety, and succumb to the MATRIX OF ILLUSION around him. He will die a pitiful cynical wretch, with no hope, and go down to his grave as having lived a useless life.

    Those who look beyond the problems to solutions, who work ceaselessly and fervently to serve, lift, and care for their fellow humans will live productive, happy, and meaningful lives, despite any problems they may personally suffer.

    Imagine for one moment—-JUST ONE MOMENT—- what the world could be like if we all shared the latter view.
    YOU HAVE THE POWER TO CHANGE YOU VIEW, YOUR OUTLOOK, YOUR ATTITUDE if you so choose.

    But will you? Will you add to the future misery by CREATING it with a negative outlook and hopelessness and a nihilistic mindset, or will you add to the force of those of us who are CREATING, even now, a bright future? I am not alone. Our numbers are growing.

    Unfortunately mankind is immature—like a teenager—and he must learn his lessons the hard way, because he refuses to learn them by way of wise reflection. He rejects—like a cynical teen—the advice of his “elder brothers.”
    He simply cannot accept their sound advice. He INSISTS on doing things his way. Well, we will continue to see the results of that, UNTIL he finally learns his lessons and has a concomitant leap in consciousness—allowing him to finally see a better way and choose to follow it.

    YOU CREATE YOUR OWN REALITY!

    1. kent… silver hit $ 26 2x already …..get it ? Silver splits ?????????? it’s not a stock ….so many d…..s are here … unreal . Did gold split too ? LOL LOL LOL

  27. Losing lots of money shorting silver and gold based on this predictions. I am still holding but by now I don’t know when is the right time to get out and call it a loss. I am sure as soon as I sell the reverse ETFs silver will go down like crazy. I will keep you posted if I sell so you all can just make lots of money doing the opposite of what I do! Well at least Larry has been consistently calling for a silver and gold correction during last few weeks, while silver and gold has consistently keep going up. At least it is all consistent. I will need a big reversal to make up my losses!

  28. Really lost on silver splitting 2 for 1… do the coins get cut in half to form two pieces worth $24? Do I get dividends too???? : ) wowzer

  29. One commentator hear remarked that our current age is inferior and worse than past ages. I do not disagree! He failed to see the full meaning of my comments, so I will further explicate.

    Western civilization as impregnated into our minds from birth, has a LINEAR view of history—in other words civilization proceeds from past to present to future in a straight line, and what’s past is gone forever.

    Eastern philosophy teaches a CYCLICAL VIEW of history. What was will be again. Hinduism, for instance, teaches that various yugas (ages) pass in cycles, and they place us currently in Kali Yuga which is a time of dark materialism and darkened minds.

    In ancient Babylonia and even older Sumeria the belief was in cyclical ages as well. There were 12 major gods in the Pantheon, and each came to dominate, in succession, a certain “age” as it dawned. For example, around 4000 BC the precession of the equinoxes brought Earth to the new age of that time, and the god Marduk claimed supremacy, as the old gods receded. Sure enough if you check history, the worship of Marduk did flourish beginning at that time. His son was Nabu and the great Nebuchadnezzar was named for him. Ruler’s names contained the name of the god that was currently in the ascendent.

    Modern western minds have been propagandized to see time as LINEAR, therefore their consciousness finds it hard to believe or accept that a new golden age could be a reality. What once was will be. TIME IS CYCLICAL, NOT LINEAR.

    All things move in cycles—the circadian cycles of the human body, the cycles of the planets, the weather cycles, economic cycles, migratory cycles, etc. Only the uniformed do not realize this.

    Therefore, simply because times look horrible NOW does not mean it shall be so forever. The so-called myths of a past golden age or past great civilizations are not really myths at all, but were realities, driven from your minds by the false propaganda of a materialist leadership with an agenda of its own.

    WAKE UP! Free yourself from the matrix of illusion, and realize that it is darkest and coldest before the DAWN, but the dawn always comes! Only a false worldview or false perception of reality can keep you from the truth.

  31. Someone’s comment about all the “smiling” faces in the East was interesting. I wonder why polls reveal that MOST all Chinese who have become extremely wealthy tycoons have hopes of moving West, NOT remaining in China.
    I also wonder why the second greatest influx of immigrants (after Mexicans) to California is from Asia?

    1. Either Lock reposted my posts for some reason, OR someone else, impersonating Lock, reposted them for whatever reason. Now, other persons are making assumptions and accusing me of posting under the name “Lock” which I never do and never have done.

      I only post under one moniker.

    1. @Zach

      No, I am not Locke. I don’t know why he reposted my lengthy blog comments. Perhaps he really liked them?

  32. Yeah, I am almost sure now that FS is another wannabe trader. Trading is doing right things in a consistent way.
    Not doing a lot of interesting things which don’t add up from one post to another. Opening several accounts doesn’t help either.

    In the mean time, larry & Co, do you still cling to those leveraged short positions?? If so, pure madness.

    1. @despe906

      Actually, despe, I believe you and I would agree on many things. We would probably enjoy discoursing with each other on many topics.

      The more “natural” way of life is the sweetest. Organic food, clean fish from a clear stream, fresh mountain air—-ahhh yes!!

      But, alas, we are here to evolve, and no condition can ever remain the same in the world of men. All changes. Everything—your body, your mind, your surroundings—are in the process of becoming something else.

      When we only consider each event and person in our lives as disconnected things we can easily become confused, bewildered, and frustrated. Many turn nihilistic, believing all is just meaningless.

      But, when once we begin to see the WHOLE BIG PICTURE of the “human experience” on this plane, we know that everything is connected and fits into the whole. Events which man, in his limited purview, considers “evil” might not be at all, from a broader perspective—–they might actually be necessary steps to a greater “good.”

      Mind you, the values of “good” and “evil” are human perceptions, not cosmic realities.

      So what may seem so very traumatic now (and more is coming) serves a greater purpose. A nation and a people (as you so clearly stated in your own comments) have grown lost in their “modern” degenerate world. They are spiritually dead or dying. They are not really alive. So, if such a system that creates such mindless materialists would continue, evolution would have reached a dead end. Man indeed would be lost, because he had lost his humanity.

      But, as you will see, events, seemingly traumatic, will serve a higher purpose in rescuing the loftier part in man.
      When once that “evolutionary” transition is completed, you will have reason to hope and smile again. :) But, I admit, the way there will be rough. But, again, that is what man, by has actions, has caused. The immature teenager has chosen to learn the hard way. But learn he will. And, the end result will be something GOOD.

  33. Gentlemen:

    Behind the scenes, things proceed. That is what Larry hinted at in the title of his article. There is indeed a LOT going on, of monumental importance.

    The general public is still in the dark about what is going on. Some bloggers here have a smattering of knowledge about it, but, for the most part, it seems no one is cognizant of the clandestine machinations now occurring that will rock their world when once they surface for all to see.

    Most are concentrated on trading this or that or worried about getting caught in their shorts. :)

    But, in reality, the BIG things happening clandestinely behind the scenes will make those concerns seem VERY irrelevant when the time comes. Meanwhile, I guess it is OK to play with your money and believe you will get rich by trading it back and forth–have your fun.

  34. Notice how the small movements back and forth continue in the markets. Silver up, silver down, silver up, silver down. All this is manipulation meant to erode the inverse EFT positions of millions of Americans. It was all planned and premeditated, and once caught in it, it is hard to get out.

    The insider EFT fund creators will make a bundle even if the market eventually slams downward, because by that time, most holders of the shorts will have, in desperate frustration, pulled out anyway.

    Imagine the sums involved.

  35. The wedge by the eastern sea beats the drums of war and the king in the mountainous land solidifies his defenses. Beware the ides of March.

    1. @FS

      You have some interesting ideas, but they are lost in your poetic form of delivery.

      I believe more people would comment and communicate with you if you were a bit more specific with your posts. One moment your clearly posting specific details, and the next you articulate your thoughts in a Da Vinci code.

      1. @Zach

        Poetry reaches deeper into the subconscious mind of men that prose. That is why so much ancient knowledge was written in poetic verse and why the Master wrote in parables. You all have a vast subconscious memory—some call it the “race memory”–the most never learn to tap into consciously.

        Sometimes, catalysts (like poetic verse) can trigger it, and deeper subconscious knowledge bubbles up to the surface—to the conscious awareness. This is also the reason churches and fraternal orders use ritual. By stimulating the emotional nature, ritual touches deeper more ancient “memories” in the subconscious.

        Nothing is ever really lost. Just as matter cannot really be destroyed just changed, so knowledge and ideas—in thought forms—lives on eternally. Those few who learn to tap the universal source rise to greatness. The great masses continue on in mediocrity.

  36. Silver splitting was a joke folks, lighten up. I was implying [sardonically] that would be the only way silver will see the price of 24 again. Could it drop there? In the markets anything can happen. Will it drop there? In my opinion, no. I bought some several years ago at 18, then some at 21 and recently some at 32. I would welcome 24 to purchase more. My price objective is 60 within 18 months. Time will tell.

  37. So what are you trying to say, perhaps, that on March 15 China is going to demand payment in full, on tjhe worthless US gov junk bonds they’re holding?

  38. @ despe906

    Interesting that despite all the comments on SHORT ETFs eroding money from an account as time passes, Larry has not ONCE touched on the time intervals in which short ETFs should be held. Reader after reader has brought this concept to the light; yet Larry won’t touch that aspect of the trading vehicle with a ten foot pole. Smells fishy to me.

    @ Kent

    No harm no foul mate. I just didn’t see the sarcasm in your post, subtle humor tends to get lost in typed comments.

    1. @ Lock,

      Perhaps the short ETF recommendations will challange the success rate he boasts about to sell his subscriptions. This will likely attact S E C attention once again.

  39. If anyone is still holding onto gold short positions I suggest you look at a chart of GLD as it has broken through the neckline of an inverse head and shoulders pattern that has been forming since last November. If the breakout at $170. holds the price target is $192. or about $2000. per oz for the metal. The breakout was on increasing volume and a very bullish candlestick so it looks like it will hold as support. I think Larry missed the boat on this one. Now is the time to go long on GLD

  40. As far as I remember, MoneyandMarkets were always recommending short ETF’s as a way to make money in downward trend, with this naive idea that leveraged ETF’s work like adding size to a trade.
    ETF’s have so dodgy and obcure descriptions about how they are calculated that anyone who plans to make money in these instruments should compare the chart to the underlying market.
    Leveraged ETF’s are not for long term investing because the changes in volatility mess up with price direction. If you want to short the stock market via leveraged ETFs while the stock market rises with decreasing volatility and falls with increasing volatility you will never make money! I don’t know, are people too lazy to trade the futures?
    Why Larry recommends them? Maybe because he doesn’t put his money where his mouth is. He doesn’t feel the pain. If he loses subcribers, he will get new ones. All those guys believe that markets are easy to trade, they just look for someone with experience to help them with details as they don’t have time to follow the markets. They don’t know that the markets are difficult and the experience in selling recommendations means nothing.
    Well, China said months ago that it will protect Iran and Pakistan in case USA or NATO attack them. They will protect their oil imports. If USA and others choose to challenge all Asia, they will lose.

      1. Yeah, USA are a military superpower but unfortunaltely military superpowers used to lose in global conflicts. In initial stages of WWII Russia was unable to crush tiny defensive forces and march into Finland. 5 years later they could have driven allied forces out of Europe if they hadn’t stopped in Berlin. WWI brought to an end a few superpowers. Before WWII there was British Empire. Asia is vast and Russia would eventually join the conflict against the West.

        1. Very astute, despe, and that’s why I like you. Yes, Russia was powerful—very powerful—by the time WWII ended. One of my close friends took part in the massive and constant marine fleet effort that was hauling armaments and supplies to Russia from the U.S.A.—much of it through Murmansk– during the War.

          And, if one studies the end of the War deeply in places usually hidden from the view of most, one will come to realize the REAL reason the bomb was dropped on Hiroshima.

          Hint: Japan was already a defeated nation and ready to throw in the towel BEFORE the bombs were dropped.

      2. It is another man’s perspective, not my own. I just posted it because educated and open-minded persons typically prefer to hear various sides to an argument.

        1. Deep within the subconscious minds of Hungarians, Austrians, and others in Europe is the recessed memory of what the Huns (the Mongols) did to them some 800 years ago. In one day 36,000 brave Hungarian troops died in battling the Mongols. They were at the very gates of Vienna, and had not a twist of fate occurred, may have overrun Europe all the way to the Atlantic.

          They crushed Russia, massacred or enslaved (hence the word Slav) it’s people, and burned entire cities to the ground. In what is today Iran, modern historians estimate Tamerlane wiped out 1.4 million persons, razing entire cities to the ground, slaughtering all the inhabitants and even innocent animals, then salting the earth to keep it barren. Today there is no trace that such cities ever even existed!

          These “hoardes from the East” are what some fundamentalist groups believe are the “Gog and Magog” of their Bibles—whom they(at least some sects) also believe will wage world war against Europe on the battleground of Armageddon (Mike Larson’s favorite).

          Modern scholars say as much as 50% of the entire population of Russia and the other lands invaded by the Huns could have been wiped out in those days of the Mongol invasions.

        2. My latest comment was censored and not posted. I guess it just revealed too much. Sorry folks.

  41. Also Greece will leave the Eurozone soon, Greek people won’t agree to 10 years of austerity. After Greece, Portugal, Spain and Belgium may follow. If in April Marine le Pen wins the French presidential election, it will be the end of EU. She is anti-USA, anti-EU, anti-globalisation and free trade, anti-global derivatives markets.
    So there is potential for bumpy 2012, on the other hand global money printing is supporting the markets all the time. I am not long the markets, I trade them daily.

  42. Currently some banks are offering 10 year fixed home loan mortgages at 2.75%. Very clever!

    With a shorter term the monthly house payment is much higher. The borrower (probably unknowingly) is paying much more valuable (I know, it seems facetious calling a dollar valuable these days) dollars into the bank over the more immediate term.

    If he kept with the traditional 30 year fixed, he’d pay a higher interest rate (but still at 60 year lows), but over such a long period that he ends up paying back in cheaper dollars, making his true interest rate lower than that on the 10 yr. loan when you figure the time value of money (assuming the dollar keeps devaluing).

    In other words, if I charged you 10cents for a movie in 1920 your ten cents bought you what $10.50 will buy today.
    So, on a 30yr. fixed, if your mortgage was say, $2500 a month, in 2012, what would that same fixed $2500 be worth 30 years later in 2042? You’re paying back in cheaper dollars (again assuming a dollar decline) over the longer term.

    Someone who bought a house in 1970 might have had a monthly payment of $90 or less in the year 2000 when they paid it off. $90 was like nothing in 2000 and even less today.

    But, most here believe the dollar won’t even be around by then, so the whole thing becomes moot if you hold that view.

  43. The eagle fears the dragon,
    Deals are made to postpone destiny,
    Lies upon lies be told,
    From west to east and east to west and back again?
    The peoples’ eyes are blinded,
    They walk in dark halls,
    They neither see nor realize what lurks,
    The covered lies deceive them.
    When it comes,
    It will approach swiftly,
    Taking strong men by surprise,
    Becoming captive they to ancient debts,
    From west to east and east to west and back again?
    Men fear the dragon.

  44. The eagle soars to icy north,
    Strong men placed in desert’s way,
    Cross they mountains high and barren,
    Ships of war in Bharata’s water,
    Helmets march toward south sea’s isles,
    Swaying palms hide plans be made,
    Fly they into great flat steppes,
    Taking way the black gold stores,
    All moving they to cage their fear,
    The dragon lurks,
    The time is near.

  45. Okay Mr. Softly,

    I’ll bite. In a couple of years when we cry uncle from our debt woes who will clean up the mess ? Fabian Society, Bildberberg ?

  46. Silver breaking out over 35 bucks a pop ZSL at a new low go with the trend and not what this clown as been saying.I see hee has changed his tune on the DOW again.GLD and SLV will be next with something along the lines of i think gold and silver are in a new uptrend and i have got it totally wrong again.

  47. Have any of you bright minds yet deciphered the various nations alluded to by metaphor in my Feb.23rd2.58am post above?

    If you can do at least that, the puzzle will become more clear to you.

    Hint: when you “cage” something you “surround” it with what you feel will contain it

    1. @FS……pretty clear that it’s the 5th Fleet doing the caging in the Arabian (eastern) Sea. Do you believe that is cover for some other deep game?

  48. FS, I get it, the dragon is China. black gold= oil, now move on.. I just want to stroke your ego and tell how how smart you are. I think you are here to have people marvel at your intellect. I guess you never were affirmed nor praised as a child. Seriously dude, get a life.

    1. Again, the one who spoke against another “criticizing” someone earlier opens his lips to speak. Do his remarks sound kind or respectful? How do you spell:
      H Y P O C R I T E ?

  49. What do you bright minds think is alluded to by “the wedge by the eastern sea” beating the drums of war, in my previous post of Feb.22:12:43pm? I bet swampyankee has the best chance of guessing right.

    I’d love to hear your guesses. Just how well are those neurons firing, eh?

  50. Larry seems to be assuming that Europe will stay worried about the Greek situation and that the dollar will rise as the Euros tank. But the European Central Bank has spun this Greek debt write down really well and you have to give them credit for that. With that being said, gold and silver will rise not because the Euros will rise against the dollar (or fall because of the rise of the dollar as what larry implies), but because all throughout the world, central banks are doing quantitative easing. ECB just printed more Euros to help the Greeks and the Greeks will be confident that they are saved just as the US markets are confident in Bernanke’s spin in the recovery causing that powerful, unjustified rally back in April of 2009 in the Dow. larry and Weiss Research was wrong back then, and now they missed the rally once again. I don’t think the Dow or metals will tank but it will be held up by increasing debt and easing.

  51. Well Isreal is a wedge and wants to try
    The pentagon has five slices if you think of a pie
    But I ask you in earnest, are you high?

  52. Gold and silver breaking out to the upside. They will probably hit new highs on this run. Go long or lose your shirt

  53. BUBBA!! I GOTTA FIND BUBBA!!!

    Where you at Bubba? Gotta give you credit Bubba. When silver was trading at $28 and Larry was saying to go short, Bubba wrote, “BUBBA LIKES SILVER, BACK UP THE TRUCK.”

    With credit to the MoneyChanger (Google Franklin Sanders):

    “Silver knocked down the last of resistance today and now resides above 50, 20, 300 and 200 DMA’s. Silver’s Relative Strength Indicator is at 72.11, well above the 70 overbought mark. Also, the MACD appears to be topping. Still, hard to see how silver will not reach 3950c before it pauses for a correction.”

    GETCHA SOME BUBBA!!

  54. Just high on life, as a man of my years (nonagenarian) certainly has no need for any of that “stuff.” I have to smile when someone decades younger than me tells me to “get a life” when I have already probably lived thrice his or more!

  55. FS:

    Your discussion is about the Chinese gold that was sent to America in 1938 on 7 US warships in exchange for bonds. The gold was to be returned 60 years later, and has yet to be given back.

  56. Here’s an interesting twist—-if Greece defaults the banks can seize all its gold. Following quote from Moneynews.
    ______________________________________________________________________________________________
    “According to The New York Times, “Greece’s lenders will have the right to seize the gold reserves in the Bank of Greece under the terms of the new deal.”‘Remember though, Central Bankers have come out and vehemently denied that gold is money .Moreover It increases it by 30% – only offering a longer loan repayment.
    And in the mix-up, lenders get access to Greek gold in the event that there is a default.”

  57. Some of you are finally piecing it all together. After all the dozens of hints I gave, it’s a good thing to see.

    Now, keep an eye on what may transpire after the Ides of March, and look behind the surface “reasons” for the actions. The ever astute swampyankee is getting really warm. But, I cannot spill it all just yet—–but soon, very soon.

    Two awesomely powerful forces are arraying for a showdown, and I do not speak of the wedge and the king of the mountainous land here—-it is MUCH greater.

    Remember the $600 trillion of “shadow money” beyond the actual $65 trillion total of real wealth in the world. Think of great forces slowly aligning on one side or the other and the energetic force building immensely. And, to remind you of an earlier hint I gave—remember Larry fortified in his bunker under the South China Sea—–don’t forget that location!

    From west to east from east to west and back again? Men fear the dragon! The dragon has a four-fold meaning. One meaning is obvious. Some of you know that one already. The other three are not quite so obvious.

    Hint: On the square.

  58. Also remember this, which I mentioned in several past article blogs:

    Europe controlled, from that tiny peninsula sticking off Eurasia that they insist on calling a separate continent, much of the wealth, land surface, and population of the world for the past 500 years.

    Charles V, the Great, Holy Roman Emperor, had his capital in Spain, but was born in the low countries. His family, the Spanish Habsburgs, ruled much of central Europe and most of South America and Mexico. The Brits had an empire that controlled one quarter of the world’s land surface. Imperial Rome before them had all of Mediterranean Europe and Africa and even Mesopotamia!

    Europe stamped its culture, architecture, and languages on lands as far flung as Vietnam, Angola, and Peru. These people are not about to go down with a whimper.

    Most all here assume all the ethnicities of Europe that hated and fought each other in endless wars for centuries could NEVER put their differences aside and do what it takes to form a true political union—a UNITED STATES OF EUROPE.

    But, when backed to the wall and facing utter oblivion as the only alternative, Europe may stun the world and become even more than just a political union. It already is the world’s biggest economy, has 500-800 million people (depending on which countries you include), a highly trained and educated work force, immense wealth, gleaming cities, and a glorious history.

    Desperate times call for desperate measures. And, think in your minds, what commonality do ALL of the European nations have—-what ONE thing do they have in common? That could be the catalyst that finally empowers true unification. And that, my friends, could stun the world!

  59. GERMAN RULE

    Here’s another clue—–The Russian czars were Germanic when the Russian Empire was being built. Hungary was called the “German zips.” Prussia (largely in Poland and even Russia today) was a Teutonic state. The dominant race, by far, in central Europe, not just Germany, were and are the Teutons. German products are superior to most. German efficiency is world famous. Germans have the will and the means to rule over Europe. Even the dog-faced British royals descend from Germany (the name was changed in the early 20th century). Wikipedia clues you in:
    ________________________________________________________________________________________
    “Mountbatten-Windsor is the personal surname of some of the descendants of Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh under an ambiguously-worded Order in Council issued in 1960,[1] and as such a cadet branch of the House of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg (known as the House of Glücksburg for short), which in turn is a branch of the House of Oldenburg.”
    ____________________________________________________________________________________________
    In 1917, while war was raging against Germany, the royal house changed its name to sound non-Germanic. Here’s the story again from Wikipedia:
    ___________________________________________________________________________________________
    “The Mountbatten surname derives from the German town of Battenberg, in Hesse. Prince Louis of Battenberg changed his surname to Mountbatten (its literal English translation) during the First World War at the request of King George V. When then-Prince Philip of Greece and Denmark, a member of the House of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg (the royal house of Denmark and Norway and the deposed royal house of Greece) took British citizenship, he used this surname since he descends from the Battenberg family through his mother, Princess Alice of Battenberg.

    The name Windsor was adopted by the British branch of the House of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha in 1917.”

    Curiously though—you must look even deeper for the true roots.

      1. FS:

        I appreciate the goose hunt your comments put me on. Very interesting reading I have done as a result of your poetic commentary. I never turn down a chance to learn or expand my viewpoint, not matter if the reading is fiction or fact.

        To those who detest his lengthy comments, learn to ignore them with your eyes. No one forces you to read the posts. The story in which he has referenced is a rather interesting read, in my humble opinion.

    1. @Zack……you busted him (FS) Zack…..search for Kauilapele’s Blog and get the rest of FS’s story. I can’t decide if it’s insanity or there’s a kernel of truth somewhere in there…

      1. @ Swampyankee,

        Definitely an interesting story, not sure how much of it really is true. I found the below link on Harvey Organ’s blog; someone posted it asking if anything else thought there was credence to it. I read it and instantly thought of FS. Read the entire interview that is on

        http://www.divinecosmos.com/start-here/davids-blog/995-lawsuit-end-tyranny

        – Old debts due (Chinese gold was loaned to the US when the Japanese were attempting to steal it in 1998)
        – 85% of all gold in the world made it to Asia via trading.
        – Men fear the dragon (The Chinese are suing for their gold back, and the west is dodging them at all costs)

        – just how rare gold is NOT ( The above article states there is 10-20 times the supply of gold that is off the market, and has not been recorded. The stashed treasure vaults and purposefully sunken ships is a juicy story. It could severely affect gold prices if it is true. )

        – A court case that is supposedly about to ripe all these points into the lime light. (Court cases do make everything public, it will be interesting to see if it goes to trial, and how the evidence stands up.)

        – Ben’s comments on hidden technology that will be revealed and create a new rapid growth to humanity. (This I believe, if you read the story about Nikola Tesla and how his patents were stolen by the US and Russian governments. Tesla had amazing ideas 100 years ago that are just now being put to use, despite his actually development of them 100 years back. JP Morgan discredited Tesla for wanting to GIVE technology away, instead of charge for it. The titanic claim is a bit nutty, but given JP Morgan’s track record in “changing” history, well. )

        Long story short, I don’t know if that is fact or fiction, my gut tells me a bit of both. In today’s world, nothing really surprises me anymore. I look forward to seeing the rest of 2012 transpire.

        Sorry to those of you on here that are tired of lengthy posts, this just had to be settled once and for all.

        1. Sorry, I misquoted the interview:

          I stated:- Old debts due (Chinese gold was loaned to the US when the Japanese were attempting to steal it in 1998)”

          The gold was loaned in 1938, and the lawsuit occurred in 1998. It was a 60 year loan.

          Again, this is from the interview of Ben Fulford by David Wilcock. Not my opinion nor my research. Though I must admit, the story as whole is very compelling.

          1. I started reading part two which is at the bottom of the page on the above link. It was solely written by David Wilcock. I think that guy slipped and bumped his head. Seriously crazy ramblings.

  60. I know that from a humanistic perspective, Germany looks like a shoo-in to emerge as the next leader out of the current shambles in Europe, but, that’s just not going to happen. It will be a man, a man with a plan, big plans, most of the world will salvitate over, and he will not be a German, but, he will be a leader of one of the last two final superpowers in the world, leading up to Armageddon. The other “superpower” will be the Kings of the East, almost most assuredly headed up by China(dragon). Both will wish to rule the world. Neither will.

    Anyway, I might be getting ahead of you, on this, or I could be on a completely different wavelength then yours.

    1. Again, my friends, you make assumptions about what I relate. I never said that the future European leader would be a German. I merely gave you the information about the past and present Teutonic dominance in central Europe and now in the EU.

      There are religious groups that interpret certain biblical prophecies based on the old belief of “British Israelism” that the Anglican church adopted in the 19th century. This belief was present even earlier in the Puritans and Pilgrims that emigrated to America, and the belief was used to justify the slaughter the Indian tribes (Canaanites) without guilt. The “Israelites” were inheriting the “promised land” after crossing the Red Sea (the Atlantic) and escaping from Pharaoh (the King of England), etc. This is why the Anglo-Germans that settled the colonies rarely if ever bred with the Indians (Caananites) but the Spanish (being Catholic and NOT subscribing to such beliefs) readily did interbreed—hence creating a hybrid race in Central and South America.

      Those fundamentalists believe that the northern Europeans and Americans are modern day Israelites (so-called lost ten tribes) and that three power blocks will form—Europe, Asia, and the West. They teach that the West will fall first, then the other two will face off on the plains of Meggido (Armageddon) in Israel. They believe one man will lead the Europe Empire and they refer to him as “the Beast.”

      This is NOT my premise. I am merely relating to you what large portions of the fundamentalist segment of American society are coming to believe. For your curiosity, they also believe the Russians and Chinese are the biblical Gog and Magog, that the Germans are the Assyrians, and that the Italians are the Babylonians.

      You can believe what you wish, I just present information from various sides. Have fun sorting it all out.

  61. Sorry about misquoting you regarding the Germans.

    Much of what particular groups happen to believe in, is false and cannot be substantiated by the bible.

    There is really nothing to “sort out”, except to differentiate between what the bible actually says, and the mis-mash that mankind tries to inject into it.

    Anyway, we’re drifting off subject(your thoughts on the immediate future), which interest me for now, so I’ll take a back seat for awhile and simply observe.

    1. @Butch
      With all due respect, I would be interested in knowing who you believe the infallible “interpreter” of what it really says is. Who is “qualified” in your opinion, to make the “real” and “correct” interpretation?

      There are currently 45,000 Christian denominations and counting just in the United States of America, most of whom believe THEY are the infallible interpreters of the Word. Can they all be right? That would be impossible, as they have so many differences in “interpretation,” and claim the other ones are wrong!

      As a stark examples, I might site the unwillingness of millions of evangelicals to vote for Romney because of his Mormon faith, which, according to their INTERPRETATION is not Christian, or the reluctance of equal millions to vote for John Kennedy because they believed his Catholic faith was not Christian or that he would be controlled by the pope if elected.

      Even today I often hear the absurd question asked: “Are you Catholic OR Christian?”

      GENERAL COMMENT

      Also, many of those totally discount and dismiss (with absolutely NO knowledge of what they really say) any non-Christian prophecies—-of which there are many, by the way. But they are all labeled as coming from “darkened pagan minds” and thrown out the window. Truly educated and truly open-minded persons are appalled by such ethnocentric thinking—or should I say religio-centric?

      Any person wrapping him or herself within the blanket of any one of the five great faiths and dismissing all the others as absurd, Satanic, or downright wrong cannot really be called an open-minded investigator.

      All sincere persons, no matter what faith they espouse or if they espouse none, should be respected. To believe there were no “enlightened” or “inspired” minds on Earth before the birth of the man Jesus or outside the realm of the ancient Israelites is very insular thinking.

      Uniformed persons still believe the Founding Fathers were Christian men, when in reality they were Deists. They may have attended Christian churches, but their beliefs were Deist, which was the popular mindset of intellectuals both in Europe and America during the Age of Enlightenment. Washington, D.C. abounds with non-Christian symbology—and have you ever looked at a dollar bill? Our great public monuments are modeled on Greek temples, not Christian churches. America is personified as the goddess Minerva in the Library of Congress stairwell, not as Esther or a female Christian saint.

      http://lcweb2.loc.gov/diglib/lcwa/html/lcwa-home.html

      Modern Jewish scholarship is revealing many connections and similarities among the Babylonian, Egyptian, and Christian religions.

      The Pharisees were given a bad rap. Actually, they were a group of generally devout and fine persons but became demonized as “hypocrites” by later writings. Baptism was practiced in Egypt long before Christianity. Research the Enumu Elish if you wish to discover where the story of Creation came from. It predated Genesis by 2000 years plus.

      KEEP YOUR MINDS OPEN! Review your beliefs often. Be willing to consider newly discovered research. The young people of America generally present a FAR better example of this than the older generations.

      They are the future. 30% of all American male youth, when surveyed, now check “no religion” as their religion. Does that mean they are evil nonspiritual persons? Not at all. It probably means, that in many cases, they are smart enough to have seen all the inconsistencies in traditional beliefs or are fed up with all the hypocrisy of persons who claim to be, for example, Christian, but act and speak in ways that bear no similarity to the original teachings of that religion.

      Lip service doesn’t cut it with the young. I applaud them.

  62. Is nonagenarian FS’s real name BF? Well, I’ve read a bit of D. Wilcock interview. I must say I am not into sensations like Nibiru planet or reptilians wko killed Lady Di because she knew…
    I don’t know (yet) if BF is a credible person or just another attention seeker.
    But I’ve known for sure since day 1 that WTC was an inside job. Anyone who has eyes can see. Unfortunately the masses believe the media even though they feel they shouldn’t. They believe because other believe and the best option is to keep believing.
    I know for sure that Tesla discovered things we don’t dream about. He claimed that one day we will stick a rod into the ground to collect electric power. I thought those secrets would be held by American business as long as they profit from selling old forms of energies. It’s sad that most people don’t know who Tesla was, while all think that Einstein was a genius, thanks to the propaganda.
    Einstein was a plagiarist : http://allais.maurice.free.fr/English/Einstein1.htm
    I believe Kennedy was assasinated because he wanted to end the FED.
    I know Hilary C. is a prominent member of Illuminati and more the president of USA than Obama himself.
    What I hear for the first time is that Titanic was an inside job. I’ve heard that HAARP might have something to do with last year events in Japan, but I rejected this idea. I never heard about this gold story. I never heard that Japan was artificially created by Rothschilds….
    I believe that global military conflict is inevitable, Asia and North America could be destroyed. Europe may be safe in some places if they don’t get involved. south America and Australia would be the only sound habitable lands afterwards.
    People will never understand the game untill it’s too late. They read in newspapers Bruce Springsteen prize Obama because he killed Osama Bin Laden and brought sanity to the government. It’s one of their idols anyway.

    1. So many of you believe I am one and the same with Benjamin Fulford. While that gentleman certainly proposes some ideas similar to mine, he also proposes others that are very different from mine.

      Also, any really astute reader should be able to easily recognize the vast difference in writing styles, word usage, syntax, and phraseology in contrast to those I employ to make my points.

      I am especially surprised that desp906 also took me for BF. I thought she was more discerning than that.

  63. 9-11 an inside job? It takes MONTHS to rig a building to detonate…with wires everywhere, charges set into thousands of holes drilled into concrete. And this work could have happened…when? Didn’t thousands of people work there? And yet no one saw anything? Oh, I know. It happened at night (sarcasm ON). Also, thousands of workers would have to be involved…and yet they have all kept quiet, 10 years later? Plus, you actually think the government could be organized enough to engineer such a massive feat perfectly? They can hardly deliver the mail. Please dude, spare me the bullshit. Save the 9-11 mantra for somewhere else.

    1. There was no preparation yet the official decision to pull WTC7 was executed instantly. Thankfully, Bin Laden left plans of the attack in a car nearby for you no to worry.

  64. More than one of you now has written believing I am really Benjamin Fulford. Let me assure you I am not. If you listen to the man speak, he seems sincere, but his delivery and choice of words are entirely different than my own. I have never read his writings, but I did watch one video produced by him. I am truly surprised you fellows believe I am he. I am not.

    They did report that his life was threatened many times for what he says.

    And yes, kids, there is infinite FREE and clean energy available which has been suppressed by Big Oil and the powers that be for purposes of profit and control—-sadly. That’s why every time I hear some fool utter the words, “drill baby drill” I can only roll my eyes and think “sheeple.” The same goes for “natural” gas.

    1. Let me clarify:

      I never read his own writings, but have seen some of his ideas quoted on other web sources. Then again, there are hundreds of bloggers with similar views and stories. His is hardly alone in writing on such topics.

      Here’s a good one on the subject of early American history:

      http://freethought.mbdojo.com/foundingfathers.html

      To hear some writers speak one would think the Founding Fathers were plotting the birth of some demonic plan to enslave mankind. Again, hear all sides of the story. Outsiders sometimes know little or nothing of the actual (and often secret) teachings of a fraternal order. If a former “insider” turns against the organization to you actually believe his opinions will be fully valid?

      The example of the first century Gnostics comes to mind. We know of them primarily from the writings of men like Clement of Alexandria (an early Church father) who branded them all heretics and demonized everything they taught or believed. An unlearned person reading his writings who had no ACTUAL and FIRST HAND knowledge of the Gnostics or had never spoken to one personally, might be easily swayed to also demonize them as a group and offhandedly denigrate their beliefs.

      GET ALL SIDES OF A STORY! Don’t prejudge anyone or anything. Keep your mind (and heart) open! Be an honest investigator. Then make up your own mind after considering all the evidence at hand, but realize that even that final opinion you formulate should not be “set in cement.” New research or information coming to light in the future could prove it wrong.

  65. I am encouraged to see so many of you are at least reading these alternative ideas. Whether we agree with them or not is a different story. It keeps the neurons firing.

  66. And to ad insult to injury there’s this:

    http://www.divinecosmos.com/start-here/davids-blog/1023-financial-tyranny?start=4

    Unfortunately, those without scholastic backgrounds in such subjects might be swayed by the information presented therein in the WRONG way, because they don’t have any awareness of the other side of the story.

    Even non-religionists these days are throwing around the word “Satanic” and attempting to attach it to everyone and everything they might disagree with. This is unfortunate.

    Organized religion did that in centuries past and millions of innocents died because of it.

    DO NOT PREJUDGE anyone or any thing until you investigate ALL sides of a story. And DO NOT base your conclusions on emotions alone or you will end up deceiving yourself.

    Again, I present information for discussion. My own views remain personal and undivulged in regards to the more weighty matters.

    One thing I will admit though: I do believe Big Oil has caused innumerable slow deaths due to heavily toxifying our environment with carcinogenic poisons. The air in big American cities is teratogenic, carcinogenic, and mutagenic. Huge numbers of American children suffer from asthma, no thanks to Big Oil and their greed for money. Lung diseases abound in part due to their largess as well. They love it, because it means more money for their bedfellow Big Pharma. Meanwhile the people suffer.

  67. “Infallible interpreter”. No such person exists except for God Almighty.

    Everybody wants to believe they are right. The wise man knows better and is always open to learning something new or learning that he was wrong about something.

    I am a born again Christian who loves Jesus Christ with all of my heart, and I am not one bit relunctant to vote for an individual because he is a Catholic or a Morman or any other title one wishes to attach another. I base my vote on an individuals beliefs both morally and fiscally and how close his lines up with mine. If Romney gets the nomination, and every indication is that he will, then he gets my vote in the general election. too.

    Prophecies can come from outside of the bible, and be true, but, under close examination, I have found that they are far and few between.

    Anybody who wraps themself in any one of the five “great” faiths, is foolish. Religions organizsations didn’t die so that ones sins could be forgiven and they could spend eternity with Jesus Christ who loves us all so very much, rather then eternity in the everlasting Lake of fire, with fallen angels, demons and Satan who hates mankind with a hatred, we humans cannot even begin to grasp.

    One should never keep their mind to “open”, or valuable things might start falling out. ;o)

    When you observe a Christian, do not look for perfection, only a work in progress, heading in that general direction. Only Jesus Christ was perfect. We are all sinners, it’s just that some are forgiven, while most are not, for all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. The scripture says: FOR BY GRACE ARE YOU SAVED THROUGH FAITH; AND THAT NOT OF YOURSELVES: IT IS THE GIFT OF GOD; NOT OF WORKS, LEST ANY MAN SHOULD BOAST. (Eph 2: 8-9) The moment that one confesses the Lord with one’s mouth, and believes in ones heart, and does so truly, at that moment, and wherever you may be, you are saved. To believe on the Lord Jesus Cfhrist is more then just giving mental assent that He is the Son of God. Millions do that and aren’t saved. When the scripture speaks of one believing, it simply means that one accepts Who Jesus is, which is the Son of God, and what He has done, which refers to Him dying on a cross at Calvary, in effect taking our place, in order that we might be saved. It means to accept Him, and Him alone as your Savior, resolving to make Him the Lord of your life, and to follow Him with all of your heart, mind, soul, and strength as long as you live.

    FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD, THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVES IN HIM, SHOULD NOT PERISH, BUT HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE. John 3:16

    1. Butch:
      By following Our Lord Jesus Christ with all our heart, mind, soul, and strength as long as we live we will find ourselves in the Church He founded to be led by the Apostles after His Ascension into Heaven. Scripture tells us that these Apostles passed on authority by the ‘laying on of hands’ (Timothy & Titus, etc.). Those who had hands laid upon them have laid hands upon others down through the ages. Today, those who have had hands laid upon them from those who had the same all the way back to the Apostles are bishops of the Catholic and Orthodox Churches. Catholics recognize the Pope as having the primacy of Peter. Orthodox recognize the Pope as only the first among equals. There are many sincere Christian people who try to follow the Lord apart from these Churches. However they are more following Frank Sinatra in his song. “I Did It My Way”.
      I come to this blog because I highly value Larry Edelson’s investing advice. I became intrigued by F.S.’s somewhat gnostic discussions of the Ides of March. I wondered what he might know about events to occur in March. It sounded like an emperor of sorts would be taken down at that time. I am not sure who that would be or the manner of the fall. Now I find myself being referred to information about the Founding Fathers and there Deism. Although I believe this to be true the site belongs to an atheist group. We seem to be straying far off course here. I prefer to hear what Larry has to say and perhaps F.S. to the extent that his discussions pertain to that which will directly affect our investing considerations.
      Not everyone following this blog may be Christian. Although the subject is interesting and I love to discuss it, I think discussion here would be better served if it kept to considerations of what Larry has said.

  68. Still long SLW, TGLDX and Physical as mentioned last week, last month and so on. I advised against going short the metals or market in general. What did I mean when I wrote that neither shorting or going long the general market is because when smart money gets a whiff of higher rates, the market will sink from it’s negative return induced buoyancy. I don’t pretend to know when, but knowing it will suffices. Few people understand the mechanics of fiat money and it’s value relative to it’s velocity. The problem now is that it is having problems leaving the gate. Plus 20% return so far this year, more to come but never complacent. Good luck to all of you.

    1. @Pat

      Good calls Pat. Rickards’ comments on velocity are intereresting in regard to fiat. Larry and all the Weiss guys seem to be value at risk adherents.

  69. The sincere and heartfelt comments of both Butch and John S. above are appreciated. I am sure both are fine men with good minds, kind hearts and good character.

    Their comments prove to us that we can be different in our beliefs and feelings but still have respect–even admiration—for one another.

    One can be VERY CERTAIN in his own mind and heart of HIS OWN CONVICTIONS, which may differ—even dramatically—-from the convictions of another man who is equally certain in his own mind and heart of HIS OWN CONVICTIONS. Yet those convictions may be very different.

    In past times, and sadly in many countries even today, MILLIONS have died in wars fought over ideas (usually religious beliefs). In the Middle Ages and into the 17th century scholars estimate that over 100,000 females were burned at the stake or otherwise killed due to accusations of witchcraft. Today, hopefully, with more enlightened minds, we would not make the same terrible mistake.

    I once visited the Salem witch house in Salem, Massachusetts were some of the young women accused by the Puritan elders were “interrogated.” Most were tortured in such interrogations before being killed. The fear spread around the towns of New England like a plague. All women were suspected. The Puritans were an evangelical religion. So all religions have had dark periods in their histories.

    Great lessons are to be learned from history: Let us all be of such HIGH MIND that whatever our own beliefs or faith (or lack thereof) that we will respect one another and allow each man and woman to express his or her self as she or he may please, and NOT seek to impose our own views or beliefs upon them. We can present our views to others, fine. BUT we must NEVER allow our own arrogance to presume only we are correct and that everyone else is wrong.

    What is right is right for you. It may not be right for another. You may not believe this. You may believe there is only ONE WAY. Fine, you are free to believe that, BUT please be tolerant, loving, and kind to all others who may believe differently. There are fine upstanding, loving, kind persons in ALL religions. There are fine, upstanding, noble men who are atheists. LOVE ONE ANOTHER. It is the only hope we have as a race to survive.

    So true, none of us are perfect, but at least we can listen to the opinions of others with toleration and open minds. And if you are a person who believes being too open minded is dangerous, then we respect that as well, as you have your reasons for believing so. There is much filth out there that should NOT be allowed into the mind, and I would agree on that point.

    The human EGO does not like to be ruffled. People do not like to be disagreed with. But, look how much all of us here—with all our divergent ideas—have learned from one another.

    RE: The Ides of March. The period soon approaching (for reasons I will not state here) is a particularly dangerous period. The probability of something critical happening is MORE likely during that period (of several weeks) than at other times. Developments behind the scenes are reaching heated levels. Things could boil over during the period we speak of and have potentially DRAMATIC consequences both economically, politically, and socially. The event(s) could be violent. There are several forces at play that converge during this particular period–that is what increases tensions.

    1. Thank you F.S. Do you feel that these events (that you cannot reveal at this time) which are coverging around the Ides of March will prove Larry correct in the short term regarding the dollar (up), gold (down), and the stock market (down)?

  70. You all have enough hints now to piece together most all of the puzzle of what is really going on behind the scenes and has gone on for millenia.

    It is about time EVERYONE knew.

  71. LATEST UPDATE——-G20 Conference in Mexico City———They are trying to build a $2trillion Euro-bailout fund

    From Reuters from Flynn and Landini:
    ————————————————————————————————————————————
    German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble told bankers in Mexico City that he was worried that the root causes of Europe’s problems have not been tackled sufficiently and showed no sign that he was ready to announce a shift in course on issues such as common euro zone bonds as well as bigger bailout funds.

    “It does not make any economic sense to follow the calls for proposals which would be mutualizing the interest risk in the euro zone, nor in pumping money into rescue funds, nor in starting up the ECB printing press,” Schaeuble said.
    —————————————————————————————————————————————

  72. Misinformation abounds, much of it purposely released as subterfuge. Confusion still reigns.

    Meanwhile, the markets still have slight moves up, then slight moves down, day after day–this is to continue the erosion of millions of dollars placed by so very many small investors in inverse ETFs. This is to confuse the millions of small investors over the direction of gold and silver.

    It is all carefully manipulated and calculated to cause the winnings to go to the “house” (the insider fund creator/owners)—think Bernie Madoff on a grand scale.

    Those in power will make money in whatever way they can by stealing yours. Why? Because they believe it is their right to do so, and you are worthless cattle.

    Through BIG OIL………….they rob you at the pump
    Through BIG PHARMA….they poison you with drugs and make you believe you are being healed while they
    charge you a fortune to do it
    Through BIG MEDIA…….they fill your mind with drivel and lies and charge you a fortune for the service
    Through BIG FINANCE…the banks rip you off with fees and usury ($38 billion this past year in penalty fees!!)
    Through BIG GOV………..they keep raising every conceivable tax and fee, penalties, fines, late fees, usage fees,
    even your postage rate

    Money flows to the top few. This is a system, a MATRIX, in which you are caught, trapped, ensnared.

    Major lifestyle changes can help you free yourself. Major mental changes can help you free yourself. It won’t be easy, and you will have to give up a lot of “things,” but you will be better prepared for what is to come if you do.

    We WILL get through this. Stay conscious. Stay aware. Stay grounded. Look to the example of how your grandparents lived if you are under 50 for ideas. For those of you who are older, like me, you may remember how you yourself lived as a child—before plastic, when milk bottles were glass, when you grew your own food.
