UPDATE: -> Silver Price Setup Attempts To Plummet -> Massive Manipulation: We Are At The CUSP!

Silver 5Xs More Rare Than Gold

Silver 5Xs More Rare Than Gold

UPDATE ->

Bullion was mauled in the overnight session, when thin volume facilitates cartel price management.

As can be seen with the overnight session’s sharp decline, this was not the typical stair-step downward move that would be considered normal profit taking following last week’s big gains.

In fact, the regular session on Monday saw normal profit taking during London and New York trading sessions.

Who in their right mind would try to exit large positions for profit taking during the most illiquid period during Tuesday’s overnight session? 

Today’s upside reversal speaks to the underlying strength of this new bull cycle.  The character of the bullion market has changed, readily apparent to anyone with a lick of “mercantile sense” as James Sinclair observes.

The silver COT’s [COMMITMENT OF TRADERS] are showing that SOMEONE is massively shorting on the latest rise in the price of silver. Although in the past it has usually been JP Morgan, I believe that it may be someone else this time…a non-regulated hedge fund like BLACKROCK. This would be part of their takeover plans of the silver rigging reigns. RoadtoRoota

By Eric Dubin, The News Doctors:
It should also be noted:  the argument can be made that coming into Monday during the access hours there was a small cartel raid that set the stage; who needs “nudge teams” when they already exist on Wall Street?

gold-aug20

Conventional thinkers outside of the reality-based community might scoff at this analysis.  So be it.

The bottom-line is that Tuesday’s overnight session witnessed a raid.  It’s very visible in the chart.

Today’s upside reversal speaks to the underlying strength of this new bull cycle.  The character of the bullion market has changed, readily apparent to anyone with a lick of “mercantile sense” as James Sinclair observes.  It also comes a day before the release of minutes from the FOMC, and futures contract settlement later this month.  Precious metals markets typically come under pressure against that sort of backdrop.

Regular readers are familiar with daily cartel patterns of crashing the gold and silver markets on both the LBMA and COMEX open.

Hedge funds are incrementally increasing their long exposure.  Some of these very same hedge funds were playing the short side more aggressively only three weeks ago.  In addition, the hot money crowd is demonstrably not interested in laying on big, new short positions; many are looking for entry points to get long.  This shift in the speculator community is contributing to fast upside reversals like we see in this morning’s trade.

Meanwhile, fundamentals for the physical market are strengthening.  The seasonally strong period for Asian purchases has begun.  We also have the bullion banks apparently net long both gold and silver.  The talking heads on CNBC might not be able to see that the bullion markets have turned, but you can and that’s why you’re reading this (and the brainwashing box is ideally turned off!).

Mining Shares Confirming Bullion Price Action

Monday’s standard profit taking was telegraphed to some extent by Friday’s tepid trading across mining shares.  Mining shares have a tendency of revealing short-term inflection points when it comes to the speculator community.  The shares also can reveal shifts in the aggregate view of longer-term oriented investors.

Ever since the cyclical bear cycle in bullion began last fall, all mining share rallies were eventually sold.  Precious metals equities acted like they had fallen into a bottomless pit.  Early this month, that pattern decidedly changed.  Dips are being bought – sometimes, quite aggressively.

Today’s trading offers a perfect example.  It speaks to the fact that the character of the precious metals market has changed.  At 12:00 EST, Gold was up about half a percent, Meanwhile, the Market Vectors GDX ETF was up over a buck, and more than 3.5%.  Trading volume in the shares has been healthy all morning.  This” confirming” trading action is consistent with a precious metals market that has fully switched into a new bull market cycle.

Last Friday, SD Weekly Metals & Markets radio show covered longer-term forecast for the balance of the year and 1Q-2014.

Click here to listen to the show.

Trading we see this week fits with our longer-term forecasts.  Most investors are not seeing this rebirth of the bullion bull market cycle.  Eventually, that will change.

Simply hold – they are now trying to buy your silver on this tiny rise but you MAY see the price fall dramatically. They have created a massive amount of paper silver to trick the silver charts into thinking there is much more silver than there really is. But Demand Is growing Strong For The Real Physical Silver At This CUSP.

China has outlawed this practice of ‘derivatives’, where’s the law enforcement in our own country?

Commercial longs are controlling the silver PHYSICAL market supply (this is good as we who hold are apart of this). 

But its the banksters who are printing paper silver as if it were real. They in time will see their own waterloo. Volubrjotr

Aleppo: A city where snipers shoot children

BBC – Bustan al-Qasr is the last remaining crossing point between the rebel and regime-held sides of Aleppo. Snipers are rife and the atmosphere tense, yet hundreds are forced to use it every day to get to work, to study and buy food. “Today, at about midday, I treated someone who had been shot in the arm,” Sam tells me. “He was a child, they usually are. I think that the snipers are aiming for kids, just kids.” Sam, crouching behind sandbags at the Bustan al-Qasr crossing point, is the only doctor on hand to treat those targeted by the snipers. He is 25, speaks in an urbane North American drawl and has humorous eyes twinkling above his surgical mask. Read Article

UK banks defer bonuses to beat top tax rate

Guardian – Bonuses across the economy were all but flat in the year to March 2013 – but finance payouts up 4% to £38.6bn once April figures are taken into account.  Britain’s best-paid workers delayed bonus payments worth up to £1.7bn until April to take advantage of George Osborne’s 5p cut in the top rate of tax, according to evidence collected by the Office for National Statistics.  Bonuses across the economy were all but flat in the year to March 2013, increasing by 1% compared with the same period a year ago, to £36.9bn, or an average £1,400 per employee.  But the ONS said the picture was distorted by firms deferring payouts until April, when those earning over £150,000 a year would pay income tax at 45p instead of 50p in the pound.  Payouts were £1.7bn higher in April than the same month last year, with the banking and finance sector accounting for £700m of the increase.  Some of the rise since April 2012 is likely to reflect a more generous bonus round – taking January to April together, bonuses in the finance sector were up by 13% on last year, at £10.3bn. But the ONS said businesses had reported deliberately deferring their bonus rounds so that employees could benefit from the tax cut.  If the £1.7bn had been handed over to staff before the 50p top rate was scrapped it would have brought the Treasury an extra £85m.  Read Article

Everbright shares plunge 10% after $3.8 billion glitch

RT – The state-controlled brokerage firm’s stock plunged in Shanghai after China’s regulatory commission banned it from trading for 3 months, a punishment for making accidental $3.8 billion buy orders and a $1.6 million bond mispricing.  Everbright Securities have nosedived by 10 percent since Friday. The company’s spot market trading has been suspended until November 18.  China’s regulatory commission banned Everbright from propriety trading for 3 months, after their mistake sent Shanghai floors into a frenzy on August 16, falsely inflating the Shanghai Composite by 5.6 percent and the CSI300 Index by 4.4 percent.  In Tuesday’s slip-up, Everbright Securities sold $1.6 million of government bonds at a yield of 4.2 percent, which was 25 basis points above the valuation of the previous day, Bloomberg explains.  The Chinese Securities Regulatory Commission has maintained the trade mishap was a technical and not human mistake.  Read Article

Western Wildfires Tax Firefighting Resources, Push Spending Past $1 Billion

GRANTS PASS, Ore. — More than 40 uncontained, active and large wildfires dot the western U.S. from Arizona to Washington state and Alaska, taxing national firefighting resources and helping to push spending past $1 billion for the year.

The National Interagency Fire Center in Boise has raised the national wildfire preparedness level to the highest tier for the first time in five years.

The center lists two central Idaho wildfires as the country’s top priorities, helping provide crews and resources for the Beaver Creek Fire, which forced the evacuation of 1,250 homes in the resort area of Ketchum and Sun Valley and has cost nearly $12 million so far.

President Barack Obama was briefed Tuesday on the wildfires by his homeland security adviser, Lisa Monaco. The White House said the administration’s focus is on supporting state and local first responders and that Obama’s team is in ongoing contact with federal and local partners.

Forty-eight fires remain uncontained around the country, the White House said, and about 17,800 people have been dispatched to fight them.

Steve Gage, assistant director of operations for the fire center, said officials can’t fill all the requests they receive for crews and equipment.

As fire season progresses, Gage said, the center moves crews around to where the greatest assets like houses are threatened, and tries to have crews positioned to catch new fires when they are small.

In California, a wildfire on the outskirts of Yosemite National Park threatened more than 2,000 structures and forced the evacuation of camps and remote rural homes. In three days, the fire has surged to more than 15 square miles and has destroyed two residences and five outbuildings, U.S. Forest Service spokesman Jerry Snyder said.

In Oregon, winds that draw windsurfers to the Columbia Gorge have doubled the size of a wildfire to 10 square miles. The Government Flat Fire has burned three homes and threatens dozens more on the northern flanks of Mount Hood, a fire spokesman said. About 50 homes have evacuated in the area of canyons 10 miles southwest of The Dalles.

Four days into the battle, the cost has topped $1 million, said Oregon Department of Forestry spokesman Dave Morman.

“That’s one of the challenges when the fire gets into these long canyons, it’s very, very difficult for firefighters,” he said.

The boost in priority for Idaho’s Beaver Creek Fire gave fire managers resources they needed to start attacking the fire more directly, said fire spokesman Rudy Evenson. Weather conditions were also improving. The fire was 30 percent contained after burning 166 square miles and had about 1,200 personnel. The cost through Monday was $11.6 million.

Nationally, federal agencies have spent more than $1 billion so far this year, about half last year’s total of $1.9 billion, according to the fire center. There have been 33,000 fires that have burned more than 5,300 square miles – an area nearly the size of Connecticut.

Whether costs top the 10-year average of $1.4 billion or the $1.9 billion spent in 2012 and 2006 will depend on the rest of the wildfire season, which traditionally gets very active in Southern California as late as October, Gage said.

Professor Norman Christensen of Duke University’s Nicholas School of the Environment, an expert in the environmental impacts of forest fires, said fires have been particularly intense in Colorado, California and Idaho this year.

“Certainly drought in some areas has contributed to the number and intensity of fire events,” he said in an email. “But many of the fires have been in highly populated, wilderness-urban interface areas such as Colorado Springs, Sun Valley, Idaho, and the west slope of the Sierra Nevada. That adds greatly to costs since so many more resources are required to protect built structures.”

Jason Sibold, assistant professor of biogeography at Colorado State University, said since the 1990s, the climate has been changing, producing hotter, drier and longer summers in the West. That combined with more people building vacation homes in the woods pushes up costs.

“The societal demand to try to control and fight these fires is escalating at the same pace as the climate’s warming,” he said.

Despite firefighting efforts, more than 960 homes and 30 commercial buildings have burned this year, according to the fire center. And 30 firefighters have died in the effort, including 19 hotshots at Yarnell, Ariz. The annual average over the past 10 years is 17 dead.

The high monetary costs come despite a 5 percent cut in firefighting budgets due to the federal spending cuts known as sequestration, which eliminated 500 firefighters and 50 wildland fire engines this year. Meanwhile, the U.S. Forest Service has yet to activate a new generation of air tankers provided by private contractors, intended to deliver bigger payloads faster.

In Montana, Gov. Steve Bullock declared a state of emergency for 31 counties, allowing the use of National Guard resources.

Wind gusts pushed two lightning-caused fires to more than 12 square miles near Lolo in southwestern Montana. A state fire official said those fires have burned at least five homes.

‘Covert Affairs’: Bombshell About Auggie’s Ex Could Push Annie To Leave The CIA (VIDEO)

Henry Wilcox wanted Annie to leave the CIA and join his new venture, Lexington Global, on the latest installment of “Covert Affairs.” Annie refused, likely due in no small part to her relationship with Auggie. But then, Henry dropped a bombshell on her.

“The last few days, I’ve learned quite a bit about Auggie’s ex, Helen Hanson,” Henry told Annie. “Ask him if he’s talked to her recently.”

“What do you mean?” Annie asked. “She’s dead.”

“Is she?” Henry responded. It certainly left Annie with plenty of questions.

TV Fanatic’s Carla Day had questions, too. “Is Auggie still lying to Annie? Is his wife still alive and are they in contact with each other? That would be a humongous blow to Annie and her relationship with Auggie,” wrote Day. “Could the mysterious woman (Michelle Ryan) that Arthur met with in the parking garage and then followed Wilcox be Auggie’s wife? That would provide an intriguing twist to this whole mess.”

Kristine Francis of Celeb Dirty Laundry agreed, saying that this bombshell could be the one thing that might hurt Auggie. Things have just been too smooth between Auggie and Annie, haven’t they? Of course the show was going to throw a huge monkey wrench into the gears.

Find out how it all plays out as “Covert Affairs” continues on Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET on USA.

‘Amish Mafia’: Buggying Under The Influence Is A Serious Concern To The Amish Community (VIDEO)

Drinking and driving is a serious, dangerous crime no matter where you are. On the latest episode of “Amish Mafia,” we learned about BUI — buggying under the influence. Drinking and driving can be just as dangerous on a horse-drawn buggy, and you can get in serious trouble.

“BUIs are actually a lot more dangerous than they sound,” said Jolin

Merlin agreed, saying, “A horse usually knows how to find its way home, but it can’t read stop signs.”

One of the reasons the Amish community takes this problem so seriously is because horses are a major investment in an Amish family. The issue came to light when Levi and his men discovered a guy called “Crazy Dave” passed out drunk in his buggy. He was carted off to Amish rehab — which is apparently being forced to sit in an attic and read the Bible for days on end.

While the BUI was a very serious matter to the Amish, viewers at home might have been struggling to take it so seriously. Penn Live’s Julie Hatmaker admitted that she’d never laughed so hard as she did during the explanation of BUI. “Granted, it’s a serious matter – just as one should not drive a car while under the influence of drugs or alcohol … so one should not drive a buggy,” she wrote. “But really, buggying under the influence? Seriously?!”

Learn more about Amish culture every week on “Amish Mafia,” Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET on Discovery.
