.So, please go for it...explain it....as in Finance 101.

We're gonna let politicians and their cronies loot the government for a while. You won't even miss those billions, trust us.


It's what they've been doing for fifty years. The cookie jar is almost empty.

It's traditional.

It's everything taking a hit. Even the gold and silver prices are taking hits. Gold is down over $130 from it's recent highs. It took a nosedive the past 2-3 days.

OK, the bond market fell apart....but why?

And then there is gold....surely when stocks go down, gold goes up, but today, it dropped
-26.98
-1.70%
goldprice.org...

Where is all the money going?
Under the mattress? In safe deposit boxes?

It’s a Hail Mary. I am hearing all kinds of hocus pocus talk about the market. It looks like to me they are trying to prevent a economic collapse, but I am no expert. It’s bad news. Gold is going down because people are selling it, I don’t think it’s gold bars being sold but the investment, either way they are selling, everyone is selling. The fed is pumping imaginary money into it PRINT, PRINT, PRINT to try and fix it. all I got. Depending on who you listen to it’s bad to it’s gonna collapse. N

I see what your saying where is the money going. Well people are taking value out of the markets, I am no expert 🤔 but the big bubble is not oil not housing but our federal deficit. I think it’s possible the value of our money we have now will soon be much less. Due to the print print print injection. Dunno if banks will go bye bye not sure if I agree with the collapse panic I am hearing. I think inflation is coming thou.

Everyone wants cash , too pay their margins, theirs no cash in paper promises, so they have to sell their GLD or SLV, Which are better paper promises. But the waiting times for physical are going up, so we all know which way this is going when the bottom of the market shows up.

Typically people might sell gold to purchase stocks.
That is what happened today.

I don’t think the money existed it’s fiat imaginary neither does the debt really. We say it does if you believe it then it does I suppose.

Yes, people will sell when they get spooked
and/or they think they can sell high buy low.

FIB here

ETA: None of this is new, during the Obama administration
we had Hank Paulsen and Timmy Geithner at work
constantly with the plunge protection team aka known
as "Presidents Working Group" under Obama.

When you hear about the Fed printing money this
brings "liquidity" to investors.

Monday gold was up to a seven year high at 1700+
Took a tumble after due to less of a "consumer demand".

Spooked is the word aka volatility.

Once upon a time, there was a reserve. A place where there was real stuff of value as a hedge against uncertainty.

Then they began to loan against existing debt. So that would be double debt, wouldn't it? Then think that if you could loan against double debt, you could pull more and more out of the nothing just by increasing the loaning.

Now in the place of the reserve there is a hole deeper and darker than nothingness itself. Watch in wonder when the thin meniscus skin over the nothingness begins to break and the atmosphere is sucked from the lungs of so many investors in the vacuum of their hole bigger than the world.

We are seeing a dislocation of the paper prices with regards to the physical, www.bullionstar.com... this is a major indicator, as even though the spot might go down to pay the margin calls, it seems to be affecting the GLD SLV which could prove interesting.
