I wake this morning and gold is down again. $1621.

Thats not the big thing though,financial press and media outlets are now awash with "gold its all over, gold to sell off, gold headed for under 1000 " etc etc

Now we all know this is a reaction to BB stating in the fed minutes that QE will end in june. The theory being that no more money printing no more flood of  $$$$$ chasing assets.

  No hyperinflation threat, no need to protect against inflation.

   Thats the theory.

How will it play in reality and how to make profits from it? I'm pondering the following scenarios

1.QE actually does stop.Markets fall as a result and gold plummets.

2. as in 1 except BB does not want  markets to fall and comes out to support them.I can see it now " the fed  can become accomodative if need be"
  Markets rally and gold pings back up.

3. The dark pools push gold up a bit from here to draw in the suckers- the " see gold is going back up " play. At a suitable point  the huge sell off occurs, wiping out the mellys of this world.

4. Pretty much nothing happens price wise. Retails punters all get positioned short and wait for the plunge.It never occurs and gold creeps back up.This is the same play as oil over the last month but in reverse.

5. The dark pools pull the pin and gold plunges 100$ plus in a session, triggering all kinds of stops and auto trading, causing a bloodbath.

I asked you where you saw gold going from here and why?

Instead of swatting you like a fly,  I'm going to take you by the hand and let you figure out the answer all on your own.

Create a graph of USG debt since Nixon abolished the gold standard. The X axis is TIME in years, from 1970 to 2022. The Y axis is trillions $$$$, from 0 to 20 trillion. The debt between 1970 and 2011 is ACTUAL, the debt for 2012 to 2022 is according to CBO projections. All these numbers are widely available on the internet.

Still with me?

Then create a graph of gold price since 1970. The X axis is years identical to the chart above, the Y axis is $200 to $5,000. The ACTUAL gold price between 1970 and 2011 is known. At this point you can not draw in the 2012 to 2022 gold price since it's an unknown.

Still with me?

Now overlap the two graphs, easy to do since the X axis is identical.

If you can fog a mirror you are now probably now sitting there like a dear in headlights because you just realized that the two graphs overlap with a six sigma correlation. Now project the price of gold graph from 2012 to 2022 following the USG debt graph, the part that was drawn with CBO projections. Congratulations, you just answered your own question.

And that's the "business as usual" scenario. This doesn't even reflect any surges in the price of gold due to a banking system collapse or loss of faith in fiat currency due to excessive printing.

A five year old could follow those instructions, could you?

I don't see such a high correlation till at least 2005 or thereabouts.
No doubt the USG debt ceiling is clearly some sort of influencing factor on the price of gold, but it is not the only one.
To project future gold prices solely on this recent strong correlation with USG debt is imo falling into the trap of trying to artificially create causation, that is  to fit things to suit a pre-determined personal target.
Menelaus strongly believes that gold is going into the statosphere and will find all sorts of reasons and arguments to support this opinion.
But in the bottom line, that's all it is . A personal opinion, which could be as wrong as it's right.

Gold could go to ZERO tomorrow and wipe a $5,000,000 investment and it would mean nothing to me.

Report FINE AS FROG HAIR May 18, 2012 1:39 PM BST
My point on Menelaus' gold price theory was a little bit more than just the influencing factor of Menelaus' personal position.
He presents the graph and the susequent deductions as if it is something that has not already been seen and considered by thousands of other sophisticated investors ( not just whether the few posters on here are fully aware of it - that is an irrelevancy).
He clearly is saying that he thinks there is really zero chance of the gold not performing as well in the future as in the past 10 years or so. Really ?. You don't think there is any chance at all that it might just drift sideways for many years now to compensate for the recent upsurges caused by the obvious recent abnormal crises ? Many serious analysts do and they may  be equally correct in forecasting that it has run out of steam. They are not all idiots from " down under " believe me.
If you timed everything perfectly and are sitting on gold at avg prices well below the 800 dollar mark then you are obviously sitting pretty and should be holding tightand/ or cautiously adding more. That is what Menelaus is claiming he has achieved, and who is to dispute that claim. A win win situation for him, and one which very much cause him to rationalise the purchase of even more gold at today's levels based on his USG debt correlation theory. Well done to him. But to enter at these current price points to build up new positions, just based on a straight line extrapolation of this graph, well I and many others are not supremely confident on that investment philosophy, not in the sense that it absolutely cannot fail to be worthwhile ?
Menelaus is as usual far too one eyed and too one way in his thinking. He allows no room for doubt or that other market forces greater than the ones he has identified may prevail.

I should have said that on balance I agree with menealus position if not all of his rational. Paradoxically from my relatively limited knowledge of this game I'd agree with your point that there are few sure things. Sophisticated investors lose their shirts when they called something right. Just not at the right time. It puts you in mind of Pacino's inches speech in Any Given Sunday. There are far too many variables to be completely sure of anything.

What is interesting (and I'm sure very naive of me) is that I've noticed a pattern where maybe a couple of weeks before a central bank or government announce something the market seems to move the way it should in line with that announcement. Too many times to be coincidental but it begs the question why this isn't being looked at? Some people seem to be betting on pretty sure things.

eOptimist, the last thing I need on here is another wise-guy telling me the meaning of life.

I found the question (after cut & pasting my older post) in your original post confusing. It seemed like you were asking for my analysis why the FED can't stop easing, although by that time the main exchanges on the thread focused around the price of gold.

I asked you to specifically state what you wanted to know.

As it turns out I was right because your question turned out to be "where is gold going and why", which is believe it or not, an entirely different discussion as to why the FED can't stop easing.

I have no idea what your background is but based on the contents of your recent posts on here, neither economics nor finance is one of them. So in the future, if you are interested in having me post my views on anything related to economics or finance, ASK A SPECIFIC QUESTION so I don't have to tip toe through the bullsh1t the down under clown crew carpet bomb the forum with daily to figure out what it is you are asking.

And last but not least, although the system is very complex with a lot of variables that doesn't preclude outcomes of being a certainty. As far as I know, here on planet earth an apple still falls to earth from a tree EACH AND EVERY TIME. It's called......gravity. In economics it's.....fractional reserve monetary system. When there's not enough organic growth to pay the coupon, the system collapses. Everything else is noise. Try and wrap your head around that.

I didn't quite had to look hard, your stuff is all over the place over there. Angry posts, mainly "let's hang they rich" stuff, perhaps that's why you took a dislike to me so much.

I found your posts quite a contradiction to be honest. You could structure a sentence quite skillfully but the message was either childish or hollow. I need not go on further that when you were padding yourself on the back for the "apple always falls to the ground" thing when clearly it was a failed attempt by you to hide your faux pas from the previous post. The English was correct, the logic was school playground level. Quite the contradiction.

Your posts on the other forum follow pretty much the same pattern. You come on top of other posts preaching like a high priest, but the message is hollow. Not a single original idea on how to deal with today's key issue, that of the symbiotic relationship between bankers and politicians. Hanging them seems to be your solution. Angry stuff.

At any rate, you can stay or go back to politics, it really doesn't matter much. If you decide to stay, accept gravity for what it is, stop quoting things from Einstein trying to impress, ask specific questions so you can learn, and stop wanting to hang people it makes you look very angry. Which by the way explains the "rage" comments when I didn't as much raise my voice at you. You see the world through your angry eyes so to you everyone else must be "enraged" as well.

Gold is on the brink of a “violent downturn” and could even fall as low as $700 an ounce as the risk of deflation in developed economies grows and technical pointers turn bearish, one expert tells CNBC.

“Technical levels show us when the trouble is coming. Gold struggled at $1,700 and then at $1,600. If it breaks through the next key level of $1,500, which could be approaching soon, investors would start panicking and selling hard,” Yoni Jacobs, Chief Investment Strategist at Chart Prophet Capital said on Thursday.

Gold [XAU=  1569.6899    -4.71  (-0.3%)   ], which has fallen below $1,600 eight times in the past 10 months, is currently trading below the key 200-day and 300-day moving average of $1,650 and $1,670, respectively. The 300-day moving average has supported the bull market in gold since 2001, however this is no longer the case, he said.

Well, what can I say, when you get your economics knowledge from following CNBC and listen to "experts" who demonstrate about the same level of intelligence as an Egyptian keep dropping turds on the forum.

The only "violent downturn" we are about to witness is your pants getting pulled down and receiving another spanking on here.

What's really laughable is not the sh1t you keep posting on here, it's your obsession with daily commenting about gold when you continue to demonstrate massive ignorance on how the gold markets even work. What a joke.

Oh, wait, the joke was on me right? What you posted *was* a joke, I just didn't interpret it to be one. My bad benny the clown, I'm losing my touch, carry on with the show mate.

In any case, where the info comes from is irrelevant.If its right its right.

Who's to say that gold wont do what it did in the last bull market?.last time it overshot by 150%,in a speculative bubble.
Reasons why it wont happen again?.If the stock market falls,wont they suggest a buy for gold e.g contra,defensive bolt hole.

The price of gold is what Ben Bernanke wants it be.

Everyone got that? His problem is not gold, his problem is OIL. 

The FED has been managing the precious metals markets in a very heavy handed and blatant way since Q3 2011. Because they have to and because THEY CAN……..with impunity.

If don't don't wrap your head around this construct and totally accept it, you have no business being in gold.

The price did what it did today to complete the illusion that he said QE when in fact he didn't. It would be "odd" if the S&P got ramped but PMs were left behind. There's no market now, just the illusion of one. He controls/owns it all. If you had any doubt and today's action didn't completely pull the veil back for you then you're not paying attention or have no business trading.

You also have no business being in gold if you are not accumulating physical. Those who own paper gold will one day find out that their gold is worth about the price of……PAPER.

Accumulate physical and put it away somewhere safe but WHERE YOU CAN ACCESS IT at all times. If you can't touch it at will, you don't own it. .

And wait until the day these feckers lose control. That day is not as far away as you think.

The power of exponents had the outcome predetermined from the outset. And central bankers know that. All they are doing now is transferring as much wealth as possible to their friends before this ponzi comes to a merciful end.

If you do all that, you just might be able to protect some of your wealth until the real thieves come after it. No, no, not those criminals breaking into your house with a crowbar, the real criminals………YOUR GOVERNMENT.
