Rick Ackerman – Gold Depression?

from Financial Survival Network

Rick Ackerman is concerned about gold’s future course. If prices keep falling and it breaks technical support, Rick thinks it could drop as low as $820. But that’s just from a technical standpoint. The reality could and probably will be quite different. As far as the stock market is concerned, Rick has never been a raging bull, but that’s no reason not to make money. He doesn’t see much upside potential, but still could see the bull keep going for a while longer. He’s focusing more on the treasury market now, where he’s sees many low risk, high profit opportunities. Much to think about in these uncertain times.

from Financial Survival Network

Howard Davidowitz, well known consultant and turnaround expert, is unhappy with the state of affairs in America today. He says there’s no leadership and that the appearance of prosperity is being fed by record amounts of debt. The situation can’t continue on indefinitely and won’t have a happy ending. However, Howard has not lost hope. He believes that the right person will be elected and will help turn it all around. He’s seen it happen before in New York City and he believes that it will happen again in Washington, D.C.

Triple Lutz Report #364 – This Seeing iPhone Is No Dog

from Financial Survival Network

We purchased the new iPhone 6 on Friday. We waited just 25 minutes at Verizon, while hundreds waited hours at the Apple Store. Why? The new iPhone is a major advance, especially for the coming medical applications. And the screen is big and very readable.

Guess what? The Federal Fracking Study has been completed and the verdict is in, Fracking is good! Any adverse affects that have been realized from Fracked wells have beem caused by defects in the well drilling process, not the Fracking process. A big we told you so on that one. Time for you trolls to fess up and go home.

Did you hear about the report in Alaska who said eFF it and quit?

Finally, the EB-5 Visa program which has become a means for wealthy Chinese to obtain green cards, by investing $500k in a new business, now has a two year backlog. But don’t worry, where there’s a will, there’s a lawyer.

Eric Holder Says Justice Department Has Moles on Wall Street

by Pam Martens and Russ Martens
Wall Street on Parade

In addition to hundreds of Federal bank examiners permanently stationed at Wall Street’s biggest banks by the Federal Reserve and Office of the Comptroller of the Currency in an effort to eradicate a serial crime spree, an unknown number of Justice Department moles are now roaming about the mahogany corridors of power, chatting up potential criminals around the water cooler and hoping to make it out alive before being detected.

Avoiding detection as a mole becomes so much more challenging when the highest law enforcement officer in the land, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, comes to New York to address Wall Street’s lawyers and tells them, flat out, that he’s got moles stationed inside his Wall Street targets. (There were likely 100,000 text messages flying about Wall Street before Holder got to the next paragraph of his speech.)

Silver Presents a Great Buying Opportunity: Horwitz

America’s Politicians Earn $608 Per Hour

from Zero Hedge

On the surface, earning $174,000 per year, while putting one solidly in the top 10% of all US earners, does not sound like much. This happens to be the 2014 allocated wage of America’s elected political representatives, the members of the House of Representatives. And indeed, in the grand scheme of things it isn’t much… until one considers that in the 102-day period between August 1 and November 12, this wage will be “earned” for just working a paltry 8 days, which, presuming 10 hour workdays, amounts to a whopping $608 per hour, on par with what some of America’s most prominent lawyers earn. It is also several times the hourly compensation of anesthesiologists, one of the highest-earning professions, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, at $113 an hour on average.

You’ll Never Guess Who’s Calling the U.S. Tax System ‘Stupid’

by Steve Goldstein
Market Watch

An interesting critique of the current corporate tax system was made on Monday night.

Our system today is closer to what I would call a “stupid territorial” system that raises little revenue on overseas activities while still imposing substantial distortions associated with avoiding the statutory taxes.

So, who made the comment? Mitt Romney? Ted Cruz? Jack Welch?

Try Jason Furman — chairman of the White House Council of Economic Advisers.

In a speech delivered at New York University School of Law, Furman went into depth on the U.S. corporate tax system. The particular point he was making on “stupid” tax applied to the fact the U.S. tax system incentivizes companies to base foreign corporations in places like the Bahamas and Bermuda.

The Massive, 100% Legal Pump and Dump

Selling Far Outweighs Buying on the Inside

by Adam English
Outsider Club

In the worlds of business and finance, two axioms universally apply: Timing is everything, and information is everything.

These two statements even determine whether insider selling and pump and dump schemes are legal.

In hindsight, it is quite blatantly obvious when it is illegal. Enron used bad accounting and revenue calculations to artificially pump up share prices, all while the C-suite executives cashed out.

29 Enron executives sold overvalued stock for more than a billion dollars before the company went bankrupt.

Battle for Perpetual War is Won; US Admits Attacks on ISIS Could Last Years; Expect an Accident

by Mike “Mish” Shedlock
MISH’S Global Economic Trend Analysis

Victory Announced in Battle “for” Perpetual War

The warmonger dream of perpetual war has been won: US says Attacks on Isis Could Last Years.

The multiple airstrikes launched by the US and its Arab allies against Islamist militants in Syria were the “beginnings of a sustained campaign” that could last for years, the Pentagon said on Tuesday.

The airstrikes represent a dramatic volte face for a president who has spent three years battling pressure in Washington to get more involved in Syria and who was elected on a promise to bring the country’s wars in the Middle East to an end.

Sovereign Buy Orders In Gold, But Watch Silver For Price Gains

from King World News

Today an outspoken hedge fund manager out of Hong Kong told King World News that we are now seeing aggressive sovereign buy orders in the gold market taking place at the LBMA. William Kaye, who 25 years ago worked for Goldman Sachs in mergers and acquisitions, also discussed the physical markets for both gold and silver, and said that silver will be the one to watch in the future.

Kaye: “I think either this is the bottom or we are very, very close. I say that because we are deep within levels where we are seeing evidence of sovereign-sized gold buyers, particularly at the LBMA afternoon fix…..

The “Enemy” Cometh

by Andrew Hoffman
Miles Franklin

We have lots to discuss before today’s primary topic – on the ramifications of the mathematically certain collapse of history’s largest Ponzi scheme. Unequivocally, I’m compelled to start with this article from the great Steve St. Angelo, of a topic I have been meaning of writing of for months. It compares copper and silver’s “corrections” from their highs and the paradox of the world’s most industrially sensitive metal, “Dr. Copper,” declining just 22%, whilst history’s oldest monetary metal, silver plunges 51%.

Actually, if he went back to both markets’ highs in the spring of 2011, copper – or as I recently deemed it, “Dr. Death” has fallen from $4.50/lb. to $3.05/lb. or 32%, whilst silver has fallen from $50.00/oz. to $17.80/oz. or 64%. At -35%, even gold has fallen by more than copper over this period, despite record physical demand, unprecedented money printing and dramatic expansion of the factors that drove it to $1,920/oz. three years ago.

Forget Alibaba: China’s Growth Story No One’s Talking About

by Byron King
Daily Reckoning

There’s breaking news about China and cyberwarfare (AKA “the fifth domain of war”).

The news concerns serious hacking by China’s “3PLA” group — the 100,000-strong computer army that’s mostly responsible for what is referred to as “Chinese military signals intelligence.”

The latest targets of Chinese hacking include contractors who perform critical work for a major U.S. military command.

Looking ahead, I foresee significant new levels of funding for a small number of U.S. companies that know how to fight in this kind of dark room.

We Are Living In A State Of Keynesian “Bliss”

by Mark E. Jeftovic
Dollar Vigilante

John Maynard Keynes is the grandfather of all modern mainstream economic thought. Richard Nixon was famously attributed as saying, “We are all Keynesians now” whilst slamming shut the gold window and launching the era of global fiat money. (Nixon didn’t really say this, it was actually Milton Friedman)

The phrase came back in vogue in the aftermath of the Global Financial Crisis when neo-Keynesians like Paul Krugman called for, and got, massive government and Central Bank intervention into the global economy in order to “save it”.

Back in 1930, Keynes looked out into the future and saw that with the proper management of the economy, monetary policy and the like, the world could attain a type of utopian stasis:

Sprott Fund Manager Jason Mayer’s Guide to Resource Stock Profits

by JT Long
The Gold Report

Miners are having a tough time getting funded, and although Canadian oil and gas has performed well over the last few quarters, some companies might be overvalued. No wonder investors are confused. In this interview with The Mining Report, Jason Mayer of Sprott Asset Management examines near- and long-term plays that look poised to deliver returns, and shares his criteria for selecting profitable investments in volatile resource markets.

The Mining Report: In February, you gave a speech at The Vancouver Club that acknowledged the impact of investor fatigue on the junior mining equity space. Seven months later, are investors starting to get excited again about the space?

Jason Mayer: Investors have been reacting in fits and starts, and everyone is still very cautious. I track a number of funds, and I watch how they perform on a day-to-day basis. What I have found interesting is that a number of resource funds in Canada continue to be underweight, particularly in gold equities. I notice they underperform on days that gold stocks have good moves. The generalists out there among the institutional money have little to no presence in various gold equities. For the most part, people have abandoned the space.

PayPal Gets Serious About Bitcoin – Is the Price About to Move?

by Michael Krieger
Liberty Blitzkrieg

I haven’t written much about Bitcoin as of late. While the positive fundamental news has continued to pour in with regard to adoption and venture capital investment, watching the price action has felt like watching paint peel off a wall.

When friends have asked me about the price action as of late, I only note the bizarre discrepancy between the fundamentals and price. One reason for this seems to be muted buying interest, coupled with miners who have already invested heavily in mining equipment, selling their reward blocks immediately in order to recoup some of their capital investment and offset energy costs. In addition, while banks have stated they are holding off with regard to Bitcoin until there is more regulatory certainty, it appears clear to me that the big banks are doing everything they can to stall Bitcoin adoption. This was confirmed last week when banks cracked down on the exponentially growing Bitcoin ecosystem in the Isle of Man.

SP 500 and NDX Futures Daily Charts – Air Continues To Come Out of Post-Alibaba Markets

from Jesse’s Café Américain

The air continued to come out of the point men on the recent stock market bubble as the SP 500 led the markets lower today.

As you may recall, in the 1990′s Robert Rubin established that one could pump up the market most efficiently by buying the SP futures, and in a sense forcing all the index followers and funds to buy stocks to keep up with that trend. It has been used any number of times, and I suspect is still in the back pocket of the Exchange Stabilization Fund, aka ‘The Plunge Protection Team,’ as a tool for ‘saving the markets.’

As Rubin’s dictum went, it was cheaper to pump up stocks in a falling market, rather than coming in after the fact and repairing the post bubble damage with a genuinely productive effort, or even a bail out.

“Evidence we have gathered all points to a collection of loosely affiliated terrorist organizations… that practice a fringe form of Islamic extremism.”

Its goal “is not making money, its goal is remaking the world and imposing its radical beliefs on people everywhere.”

Silver, Gold, Debt & Taxes

by Gary Christenson
Deviant Investor

I’m convinced – we can’t escape debt and taxes. Essentially all currency is created as debt, and our financial system creates more debt and more currency into circulation every day. Taxes are insufficient to pay the massive expenditures that our politicians deem essential, so our national, state and local governments fall deeper into debt every year. I think we can all agree – expect more debt and more taxes.

What About Silver and Gold?

National debt has increased from $3 Billion in 1913, to $398 Billion in 1971 to about $17,700 Billion ($17.7 Trillion). Debt and taxes – much more debt – are in our future. Plan on it.

Russia Holds Massive Military Drill: 155,000 Troops, 4,000 Tanks, 632 Aircraft, 84 Ships

At what point is a drill more than just a drill? Maybe when it is so massive it could be confused for an invasion force, involving a mindblowing 155,000 troops, more than the armies of most sovereign nations, 4,000 armoured vehicles, 632 planes and helicopters and 84 vessels. Those are the staggering numbers taking part in the Vostok-2014 strategic exercises, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu told President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday, and whose main priority is ti “demonstrate that the degree of combat preparedness in Russian troops has risen.” One almost wonders why…

Threats Are Ok (For Some People)

by Karl Denninger
Market-Ticker.org

This one has my rolling my eyes, convinced that in this world there is utterly no reason to open or run a business.

It’s bad enough that the government reaches its hand in your pocket and rips you off wholesale – what’s worse is when the government gives license to private companies to do it too.

For years, businesses have accused Yelp of running an extortion racket. If companies refused to pay for ads, Yelp would allegedly pull down some of their positive reviews (and wreck sales) until they gave in. Well, those accusations don’t appear to hold much legal water; an appeals court has upheld a California judge’s dismissal of a 2010 class action lawsuit that claimed Yelp was committing civil extortion. Needless to say, the recommendation service is ecstatic. It cites the ruling as proof that the shops simply had an “axe to grind” and were either trying to “draw attention away” from bad reviews or else prop up review manipulation schemes.

As Engadget notes, that isn’t what the court ruled.

Gold and Silver Will Never Go Up Again

by Bill Holter
Miles Franklin

“Gold and Silver will never go up.” I have read this phrase in the comments sections of many blogs and articles over the last few weeks. The phrase itself speaks to how poor and washed out the sentiment has become in silver and gold. Gold bashers, blog shills and trolls have been out in full force to add salt to the wounds of anyone bullish the metals. Sentiment has been absolutely destroyed and the “tone” can only be described as despair.

I wrote a 3 part series last week of the “how’s and why’s” of metals and markets manipulation. If by now you do not or cannot see the manipulation for what it is and what they are trying to accomplish, you may never… The phrase itself is actually wrong, it should be “Gold and silver ‘CAN’ never go up,” there is a difference, let me explain.

Home Healthcare Cuts Threaten 500,000 Jobs and Put Female-Owned Businesses at Risk

by Dennis Miller
Gold Seek

That title wouldn’t make for much of a campaign slogan, and yet, it’s the natural outcome of one particular politician’s promise. As the editor of a retirement-focused newsletter, most of the notes I receive about the Affordable Health Care Act, or Obamacare, are first-person accounts of how a reader’s change in coverage or cost is affecting his finances. These (mostly sad) stories prompted several discussions with Andy Mangione, vice president of government relations of the Association of Mature American Citizens (AMAC). Andy serves as the lead legislative and government contact for AMAC in Washington, DC. He’s also responsible for national grassroots outreach and developing strategic partnerships.

Andy is AMAC’s man on the scene in Washington, and he kindly agreed to sit down for an interview on the significant budget cuts to home health care that have been made as a result of Obamacare. I’ll let Andy get into the details.

Financial Sense

The gold price dropped on Monday, September 22nd to USD 1212 and EUR 942. Dollar gold is close to retest its bottom for the third time since mid-2013, a price level which was seen only in the summer of 2010.
