Those getting that ‘uh-oh’ feeling with their precious metals hoard, being first to recognize the error (not advice, not a recommendation) may be out in front; liquidating to buy storable food, water filtration, protection and power.
Since there’s so much injection ‘resistance’ does anyone really think it’s over?
Next step, starve them out.
Taking a cue from the late Zig Ziglar; he would start his presentations by telling the audience the one that needs to listen most closely, the one who needs to heed (and follow) his advice most, was himself.
‘Walk the talk’ … which he did.
I personally have some silver … even some gold. However, I am following the Biblical (Genesis 41) standard of where we are (again, not advice, not a recommendation).
If I had a massive ‘stack’, there’s a risk I would begin to trust in the ‘riches’ themselves.
All that’s needed is some kind of ransom or cyber attack at major trucking centers to effectively shut down the food supply.
No-one in the inflation camp wants to hear that … it’s uncomfortable to face the potential of being so wrong.
Albeit wrong in the short term but probably right later … after it’s too late. More on that farther down.
Just like the lazy (and complicit, we might add) financial journalist publishing the standard (speck blaming) propaganda for the day, so too are the hyper-inflationists, jumping on the most popular bandwagon in town.
Not even considering the potential for a retrace; admittedly, which could be short and sharp but significant nonetheless.
This site has presented several times, we’re in a situation similar to that of Genesis 41. It’s the corn and grain first … then gold and silver.
Just to back that up a bit before getting to the charts, we have the following:
This is going to be one of those technical discussions that are tedious and long-winded (also to include at least one boring anecdote).
If desired, go to the Summary for the CliffsNotes wrap up.
For the rest, let’s get into it:
A quick look at the news and financial sites has the inflation narrative still raging.
This link to an article on ZeroHedge offers a slightly different perspective than one-way hyperinflation.
At least it says deflation is a possibility.
Back in the day, I used to read as many of these press releases as possible; combine them, put them in a spreadsheet, develop a ‘voting’ system (with variable adjusted algorithmic weighting), look at buy and sell recommendations, try to figure out if MACD, RSI and Stochastics could predict the next move … and then, I would watch Wall Street Week with Louis Rukeyser.
It’s a frustrating, unprofitable exercise that was ultimately abandoned while the search for market truth carried on; only to be found much later in 2007; that’s a story for another time.
There’s nothing wrong with Rukeyser. In fact, I did use his program (once) in what was at the time, a trade of pure intuition.
During his opening monologue (probably May 19th, 1989), Rukeyser talked about gold reaching multi-year lows.
