Gold And Silver Are Paper-Slammed – Is The System Collapsing?


By Dave Kranzler

When a thoroughly corrupt government wants to try and hide something from the public, they exert an all-out effort to misdirect and cover-up. The financial markets are no different.  It’s been obvious to anyone with one good eye and one brain cell that the puppet-masters behind the Wall Street/DC “curtain” have been propping up the Dow/S&P 500 and exerting forceful downward pressure on the price of gold and silver. Why gold and silver? Because gold and silver, for 5,000 years, have been the world’s “alarm system” alerting everyone when something is terribly wrong.

I remember vividly 2008.  Many of you were not involved in the precious metals markets. Inexplicably, the manipulators smashed gold and silver down from their bull market highs in March 2008 very quickly.  Silver was smashed down to $8 after hitting $21 in March.  I remember staring at the futures screen wondering what would stop JPM from taking silver down to zero?

Shortly thereafter AIG and Goldman de facto collapsed and the rest is history, including the fact that former Goldman CEO, Hank Paulson, was “coincidentally” sitting in as Secretary of the Treasury and “coincidentally” came up with a plan for the taxpayers to bail out Goldman Sachs.  Paulson, after all, was still sitting on about a quarter of a billion dollars worth of warrants on Goldman stock.  This, after he was allowed to sell his GS stock worth $100s of millions on a tax-free basis.  Just a little “benefit” the elitists bestow upon themselves when their brethren appoint them to a Government post.

Here’s a graph that shows the similarities between what happened to gold in a short period of time in 2008 and what has happened since peaking at $1900 in 2011:

It’s pretty easy to see the similar trading pattern with gold in 2008 compared to the period the summer of 2011 through the fall of 2012.  The only difference is that there was a massive rise in the use of OTC precious metals derivatives that began a couple years ago which has enabled the Fed/Treasury/banks to keep a tight lid on the price of gold and silver and has enabled the criminals running this country to promote a “narrative” of economic recovery.  It’s been nothing but one big lie.

Here’s what happened today with gold and silver:

How is it that day after day gold and silver get smashed when the NY Comex floor trading opens?   Does it seem odd that, nearly everyday for the last 4+ years, that at 8:20 a.m. EST all of a sudden the world decides to unload paper gold and silver positions?

How is it at all possible that the price of gold and silver are collapsing like this when China has imported a record amount of gold in the first half of 2015?  China and India combined are importing more gold than is being produced on a daily basis.  India is importing by far a record amount of physical silver.  These countries require the physical delivery of the metal they buy.  It’s not good enough for the bullion banks to offer free vault storage in London or NYC.  The misrepresentation of the true, intrinsic price of gold and silver by the NY and London paper markets is perhaps the greatest fraud in history.

The criminality operating in the U.S. financial markets has become all-pervasive. The markets just ooze with unfettered theft and wealth confiscation.  The Government doesn’t just “look the other way.”  The Government is the criminal cartel.  Just look at where all the key appointees in a position to enforce the Rule of Law come from.  The Treasury, Justice Department, the SEC – they all come from Wall Street firms or the law firms that make $100’s of millions defending Wall Street firms.   It’s the American version of the Sicilian Mafia running our system!

It’s obvious what is happening to anyone who cares to look at the truth. This is the end of the end-game. Perhaps Greece has triggered it but it’s irrelevant.  The entire world is over-bloated with catastrophically unpayable amounts of debt.  The IMF has told us that Greece can’t possibly repay its debts.  Huh?   Does the IMF really think the United States can repay its debt load?   Greece has $350 billion of sovereign-issued debt.  The United States has over $18 trillion in “on-balance-sheet” sovereign-issued debt.  It has at least $200 trillion of contingent sovereign-issued liabilities.

The only difference between Greece and the United States is that the United States can unilaterally print its own money.  Literally in unlimited amounts.  Ben Bernanke stated that fact in 2002:  “But the U.S. government has a technology, called a printing press (or, today, its electronic equivalent), that allows it to produce as many U.S. dollars as it wishes at essentially no cost.”  LINK

The system is collapsing.  It has been collapsing.  I believe it’s quite possible that we are seeing the final stages of the end game.  China’s stock market is down 30% since early June.  The prices of oil and copper are crashing.  As I wrote yesterday, oil and copper are the quintessential beacons of relative economic activity.  If their prices are crashing, so is economic activity.

After trading in positive territory overnight, the S&P 500 suddenly plunged shortly before the NYSE opened:

China suspended trading in its stock market last night. But how is this any different from key HFT ECN’s “breaking” when the market is about to go off a cliff? As Zerohedge always tauntingly reports, the market “breaks:” Broken Market Ignites Momentum

Coincidentally, the market never seems to “break” when its spiking inexorably higher on some fictitiously prepared “good” economic report. Let’s  see if the market “breaks” today in order to stop that waterfall plunge at the open.

Of course, if it doesn’t, are you prepared for the devastating consequences of a collapse?

  1. In a true free market environment, where supply and demand still influence price, when demand drops prices fall. They fall to a level that stimulates demand and eventually prices will rise again. If this concept seems strange to you, it’s because in our rigged market environment they have attempted to remove supply and demand from influencing prices. With the exception of gasoline and gold and silver we haven’t see much deflation and this is because general deflation is counter the the Federal Reserve’s goal of constant inflation.

    • since the Fed Reserve (not federal and no reserve) came into being during 1913, think it was, the American Dollar has lost over 90 percent of it’s value! I see that happening as a plan of theft by these mad sorcerers…who are yet to this day, stealing from the broad assets of the American People……Politicians are too blame just as much, via allowing this……..I wonder where it will all end? Will there by legal slavery again? NO….this bunch of thieves have already taken most of every thing….even jobs by a round about manner

  2. It is impossible to use modern day comparisons when we have amassed a debt level of $18 Trillion, where every man/women/child in the U.S. is obligated to a current debt of $140,000….$hundreds of trillions in obligated debt in the derivatives, High frequency computer trading which accounts for over 83% of all trading now and the PPT (Plunge Protection Team) controlling the markets directions.

    The 2Big2Jail banksters who got the trillion+ bailout money in 2008 and beyond when that money was borrowed to help those fleeced by the banksters who caused the market exuberance and resulting meltdown is all you really need to know.

    The system is corrupt and broken, yet every pension, every investor with excess capital is steered to continuing the to buy stocks when interest rates are nill and they keep the lid on precious metals through the Central Bank controls.

    It’s all rigged and it will all end very poorly for most.

    Where is the outrage?

    • I wonder that also! Except! Remember, the MSM is part of the rigged deal….so there is only the alternative news to dig into this problem….So few people in the US go to A-news…that no wonder the fish will be swallowed by the whale….and sooner rather than later…

    This Capitalist system of Free Market Totalitarian Libertarian Society if you prefer is downright corrupt, rotten and evil to the core.
    This article is true and right to the point of what ordinary people have to endure day after day in living in it.
