Gold closed on a strong daily note at $1065.00 rallying from an earlier low at $1042.50.

The following linked article by Jim Willie goes into the structural breakdown of the gold market in detail which may shock you:

Gold has become weaker faster than expected as it is now off $14.10 for the day at $1049.10, breaking short term support at $1060.

There is no question that the cartel wants the metal under $1000. They have succeeded in freightening the market which is one of their onerous trademarks. Manipulating the dollar higher makes the weakness more justified in the minds of market followers but it's the gold they want lower, not the dollar higher. Just because Euroland has their troubles the dollar is now the currency of choice? The fact of the matter is that all fiat currencies will erode in value against gold and this present playing off one currency against the other is just child's play when weighing in some serious consideration for real wealth preservation with gold.

The following linked video clearly states the case why the dollar will fall in value against gold when some day over the next five years it will take 15,000 dollars to buy one ounce of gold.

Continue buying and holding gold, it is your family's insurance policy against planned government mistakes that are more than likely being orchestrated by the owner of half the world's wealth from across the Atlantic.

The following is an addendum to the previous comments:

It wouldn't be a surprise if the cartel has a plan to jerk our chains with further paper selling in gold and silver along with the related shares in the weeks ahead. Over the short term if the $1060 level on gold gives way they will be successful in stirring up our nerves again like they did back in the later part of 2008 when a few U.S. banks tore into the precious metal's prices with a flood of paper product sell orders.

Recent bullish chart patterns of the Gold/XAU and the Gold/Silver ratios indicate that not only will gold be weak in the short term ahead but that suspected down leverage will be extended more to the related shares along with silver. When these ratios are bullish they actually represent bearishness. It's almost like when a bond is advancing it actually relates to a bearish trend of a lower expected interest rate return for current buyers.

It's the opinion here that plans should be in place to take advantage of weakness in gold if the $1000 level gets cracked. Any forced sell-off in gold only goes to show how desperate the fumbling fools in Washington have become as is supported by the growing numbers of folks who have become anti-government.

Last on gold is $1110.50 after hitting a high of $1125.80 in Hong Kong last night as the metal continues to gyrate around its median price within its bull market channel formation at about $1112. Gold's last sale is neither over-bought nor over-sold within this major ascending trend.

Currently, the top of the channel is at $1250 and the bottom of it at $975 are well entrenched and continue to direct the metal higher into the future as it continues to recover from a recent speed bump at $1225 in December.

Gold closed out the week at $1080.20.

The battle against gold by the cartel is starting to intensify. Since CNNMoney.com early last week put out an article that predicted $500 gold, Nouriel Roubini is stating that $1500 and $2000 gold projections by experts are non-sense.

One just has to look into Mr. Roubini's past to see who he's been rubbing elbows with to get an idea what side of the fence he is on.

The following is an excerpt from Wikipedia concerning Mr. Roubini:

After receiving BA in political economics at Bocconi University and doctorate in international economics at Harvard University, he began academic research and policy making by teaching at Yale while also spending time at the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the Federal Reserve, World Bank, and Bank of Israel. Much of his early studies focused on emerging markets. During the administration of President Bill Clinton, he was a senior economist for the Council of Economic Advisers, later moving to the United States Treasury Department as a senior adviser to Timothy Geithner, who is now Treasury Secretary.

We live in a cruel world of thievery, injustice and moral decay and now the ones with political connections tell us gold is not for us.

Is there any wonder why the government put one of the most brilliant minds in the world, Martin Armstrong, in jail? Believe what you must, I prefer to be educated by the prodigies and not the white shoed boys from Harvard and Yale.

Last on gold tonight is $1083.60 following a low of $1073 earlier in the day in NY.

It's quite apparent that pressure is being exerted on gold's price at and around the $1100 area. As this selling continues the media whores along with a big investor are talking this market lower by pointing out that gold's recent strength represents a bubble ready to pop.

Isn't it interesting that the press reports bad mouthing gold is never balanced with positive comments? Now George Soros says, in so many words, that gold is coming down. Soros trades the US dollar and one can easily speculate with these negative comments on gold that he is long the dollar. Soros has had a keen interest in holding gold shares in the past. Is Soros short gold and worried at current levels or is he looking to buy the bullion lower along with the related shares????

Since his comments were made today at Davos 2010, expect some follow through in gold selling from folks who find themselves in a state of confusion or not being dynamic in their understanding of monetary science.

Another linked article below from CNNMoney.com from the 25th of the month is a real laugher: Some non-gold-expert who writes for Fortune Magazine predicts that the price of gold is headed to $500 in two years. This forecast may turn out to be the worst of all-time, beating the Boston Globe's stated position that buying the metal back in the early 90's at just above $300 was, basically, risky and a bad idea.

Gold is higher at $1136.10 in Asian trading tonight. It's the same old story IMO, China continues to buy in bona fide markets while avoiding NY markets that are bound by edicts from the Treasury and the Fed to Wall Street bullion banks to continue the phony sales causing general metal weakness when their doors are open.

The dye to our possible financial demise has been cast with our continuing out of control debt expansion. The world's eighth largest economy, California, is bankrupt as are so many other states. Our personal debt bubble of our holdings in real estate has burst and continues to suck our blood. The temporarly lows will be recorded in the second half of 2012 according to Martin Armstrong, only to continue lower starting in 2015 for another 33 years. There are reports floating around that home prices will sink further for the next two years by a minimum of 30%.

In Reno and Las Vegas, home prices are off 50% and more since 2007. Since they have been especially hard hit, it's conceivable to think that sometime in 2012 they could touch an inviting low point from which to rally up from until 2015.

Dear CIGAs,

The Angels are moving targets that are refined with each market reaction. Their change is miniscule but we account for it. That fact that $1224.10 was the cash high and the fact that the $1080 area worked reasonably well has lit up $1764 even brighter than $1650.

I therefore conclude that gold is definitively going to $1650 with an overrun to $1764 prior to a reaction before it moves to higher prices on or before January 14th, 2011.

The following are comments made by Doug Casey today of the Casey Dispatch that are profound:



Doug Casey on Currency Regime Change

(Interviewed by Louis James, Editor, International Speculator)

L: Happy New Year, Doug! Whats on your mind these days have any new thoughts for the new year?

Doug: Well, the new currencies discussed in the news have caught my attention.

L: Ah, yes. Hugo Chavez is launching a new virtual currency among some Latin American and Caribbean countries called the sucre. It looks like its going to be little more than an accounting fiction among trading partners. But the new currency the Persian Gulf states are talking about launching, the so-called gulfo, that looks more like a serious contender. What do you make of this?

Doug: My first reaction is to say, Monkey see, monkey do. In imitation of the European Union, these people are monkeying around with what should be money. Thats gold, of course. But you know, Ive been surprised that the first of these Esperanto currencies, the euro, has lasted as long as it has. It was officially adopted in 1999, though not put into actual circulation as bank notes and coins until 2002. It started out with a theft, in that the old currencies that people had were only good for another three years. After that, your deutschmarks, guilders, francs, and what-have-you were good only for wallpaper. If you had any stuffed under your mattress, you found out what their intrinsic value was.

But the euro thats replaced them, too, is backed by nothing. Nothing but the good faith and credit of the participating governments which are all going bankrupt. The problems in the EU arent just with Greece, Italy, and Spain; Britain and France are being downgraded, and its going to get much worse.

L: But wait a minute, is the euro really backed by even that? Well, maybe good faith, whatever that is, but not the credit of the participating countries. What would that mean? Credit in what? You cant take euros to the German government and say, I want deutschmark for these. Certainly not gold. If the dollar is a floating abstraction, the euro is all the more so, trying to stay afloat on a void.

Doug: I agree. If the dollar is an IOU nothing, the euro is a who owes you nothing. When it collapses, a lot of people are going to suffer a big wealth haircut. Bernie Madoff swindled thousands of people out of billions. The euro will swindle millions of people out of trillions.

L: Right but then is it accurate to say that its backed by the good faith and credit of these governments? I dont think it is.

Doug: Thats a good point. The average urban peasant in Europe thinks his government is somehow watching out for him. I suppose thats true, at least the way a dairyman watches his cows, or a swineherd watches his pigs. But the euro really is backed by nothing. Though, at the moment, you could say its backed by Mercedes cars and Gucci bags anything you can trade euros for. But thats for a limited time. Im absolutely convinced the euro is going to fall apart it makes no sense at all. It might be convenient for the national governments to then blame the European Central Bank. There will be recriminations and bad feelings all around.

And yet, its had a period of relative success against the dollar, and since phony economics reigns everywhere in the world, its not surprising to see other countries wonder if they can pull off the same scam.

L: Sure: If it worked for them, why not for us?

Doug: Exactly. The thing is that in the case of the Gulf countries, nobody uses those currencies outside of the issuing countries. They are really non-entities and everyone would like to secure the advantages the U.S. dollar has for their own countries. When other countries use your currency as a reserve, or even as their own currency, you can print the things up by the truckload and ship them overseas in exchange for valuable goods. You can essentially export inflation.

Its a subtle fraud thats worked for the dollar and, to some degree, its started to work for the euro. People see that its backed by big countries that are perceived to still be wealthy, so they accept euros with some confidence. Its a colorful, arty, well-printed currency, which comes in denominations up to 500. Arabs would like to see their currency accepted with equal confidence.

L: Sure, why not?

Doug: Hell, Id like to have a government and print up my own currency too. And Chavez and his cronies in these nothing-nowhere countries like Honduras and Cuba would love to have a central bank that gets that kind of respect. The Cuban peso has zero value outside of Cuba, and almost zero value inside Cuba. Cubans dont use it if they can possibly avoid it, and never hold it. Its like the Old Maid card. And thats within a police state, where everyone has been indoctrinated over three generations about how their governments paper was actually better than gold. Lenin quipped that its best used for constructing urinals in an ideal socialist world. And of course if youre very wealthy, or a fool, you can certainly use it that way.

But its not going to work. I guarantee that where these things dont turn into total disasters, they will come to nothing. Anyone who is holding assets in sucres or gulfos, just like euros and dollars, is going to be left with nothing when the game of musical chairs stops.

Look at the sucre. Its supposed to be for trade between the participating countries. They wont actually issue paper money or coins. If they are just going to use it to settle trade between themselves, its just an accounting gimmick. The whole thing is ridiculous. The first trade in the sucre is supposed to happen between Venezuela and Cuba for a shipment of rice, any day now. What of real value could the Cubans possibly use to pay for this? They produce absolutely nothing but sugar and cigars.

L: So Instead of paying with sugar and cigars, theyll pay with sucres, which they got like imaginary monopoly money at the beginning of a game? And the Venezuelans will take these and use them to buy something really exciting from Bolivia?

Doug: [Laughs] Yes, perhaps a boatload of alpaca wool sweaters. The whole thing is ridiculous. Its really nothing more than a bunch of bankrupts passing IOUs around to each other. They make each other feel as though theyve been paid, when in fact they all have nothing.

We have to start by asking: What is a currency?

The answer is that a currency is a government substitute for money.

This originated in the practice of private banks to issue bank notes. Youd take your gold to a bank, and the bank would issue you a paper note attesting to the gold you had on deposit. Why would they do this? Because its more convenient to carry a paper in your pocket than a large amount of gold. Thats how this started, with bank notes that represented real money in storage.

And then, as governments took over the function of banking with their central banks every country has a central bank now they, too, printed up bank notes (currencies) that represented gold on deposit. After a while, people seemed to forget that the currency only represented value and had no intrinsic value of its own, and governments were able to stop backing their currencies with anything at all.

Thats how the modern financial world works; its entirely based on nothing masquerading as something of value.

L: I guess its a cultural thing, like a witch doctor whose spells are backed by the full faith and credit given him, which is indeed powerful in a society that believes in them. Because everyone believes, when he says certain things will happen, they do, and people accept his powers as real. But he does not, in fact, command any magical forces, and the paper currencies people accept all around the world do not, in fact, represent any real value. At some point, reality asserts itself, as when the witch doctors powers fail in some vital task. That may be whats happening to paper currencies in the world today; if the U.S. dollar follows the Zimbabwe dollar, the whole paper faade may be torn apart, beyond any repair.

Doug: That could be. Although, while inconvenient in the process, it would be a good thing in many ways. These governments labor under the conceit that printing up more paper will create more wealth. The truth is that it does just the opposite, because the inflated money supply sends false signals to the market, and people build things, buy things, invest in things, etc. that they would not do without that false information. Thats how governments distort economic decision-making and create massive misallocations of capital.

L: Have you seen that YouTube video on Chinas empty city?

[Ed. Note: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0h7V3Twb-Qk]

Doug: Thats a perfect example.

L: Well, monkey see, monkey do is a pretty negative assessment of these new currency ideas, but isnt there a positive side? Not that theyll actually work, but that they might hasten the collapse of the paper charade?

Doug: It certainly is a sign of the times. It shows that all these other governments, at least, can see the writing on the wall and want to get away from the U.S. dollar. They know that if they keep using dollars and storing them, theyre going to end up holding the Old Maid card, or getting burned by the hot potato, if you prefer. Thats the economic reason. In the case of people like Chavez and Morales, they want to get away from it for political reasons as well. Theres no reason to want to help the enemy by using his currency.

But the Russians are playing it much smarter. Theyve been consistently and significantly building their gold reserves over the last several years. They seem to add substantially to those reserves every month.

For a long time, Ive thought that what will happen is that someone will come out of left field and offer the world a gold-backed version of their currency. It could easily be the Russians, or the Chinese. And if they did it right, making the currency fully redeemable in gold, that currency would become the strongest in the world. As a result, capital would pour into their banking system. And, assuming they made some other reforms, namely cutting taxes and regulation, their economies would become real powerhouses producing sustainable growth.

--------------------------------------

China has been buying up gold and copper in the ground now for many many months. Expect them to continue this trend until they announce a new gold backed currency that will sink the dollar and propel gold to unknown heights.

The last sale on gold is $1133.00 as it continues to climb the wall of media doubt up from recent lows near $1075.00.

Linked below is a recent superb article by Darryl Schoon entitled, "The United States of America - An American Tradegy."

In the later part of his essay Mr. Schoon compares the failures of John Law to the potential disasterous events coming to this country partly at the hands and influence of Obama's White House director of the National Economic Council, Larry Summers.

Prior to his currently held position, Larry Summers was the president of Harvard University. What Summers did to Harward was a disgrace that Obama should have taken a strong second look at but failed to do so for some reason.

Evaluating your gold reserves can be done with taking the Average of past production and applying it to evidence of mine able quarts still in available. A core drilling plan can confirm it.
 By bluejay

12/17/2009  3:31PM

Last on gold is $1099.80.

The industry paints its own picture on how to evaluate a gold property. As Mike mentions, this is done with stated reserves. Reserves are no more than mathematics applied to core testing from a lab. The metallurgy of dealing with complex ores could be complicated. Stated reserves are not an exact science. Extracting infill proven ore from a blocked out area even has its slight variances at times when receipts come in from the milling process, sometimes better, with other times not as good as expected. On balance, it's the best system in identifying, with some assurances, that gold is present.

Unfortunately for drilling in our gold system here in Alleghany, you can throw out the window reserves because drilling only proves up structure with MAYBE a small or larger high grade hit here and there. Experienced miners in the district are worth more than drilling teams because they have a better nose for gold than the drill bit.

What hinders investment in the Alleghany District comes from different fronts:

1- Our inability to get the District's story out to potential investors.

2- The State's complete ignorance as to what supporting a industy will do for creating jobs and increasing revenue. One only has to look to Quebec for a complete mining success story concerning employment and government revenue.

3- Lastly, general concern in protecting shareholder's discovered high grade gold. Sandor can solve this one.

Jean Guy Rivard the once president of Louvem Gold Mines in Quebec told me that the handling of high grade is a concern of all mining company officials.

The gold mines of this Company have produced about 100 tons of gold. Conservative geologists are comfortable reporting that as much remains within our boundaries and accessible. Over the years geologists have written that as much as 80% of the gold deposited here remains unmined.

Let’s use the conservative opinion. Assume the gold remaining estimate below is correct, our properties have .4% of the gold left unmined on earth. Whoopee! Now here is why the established investment community shies away from the Sixteen to One…we do not report proven reserves. The first question I have been asked over the years by members of the establishment when discussing our mine is, “What are your proven reserves?” My answer is zero because when we see gold we mine it and it goes into inventory. Most companies misrepresent their reserve accounting and the establishment hasn’t a clue how to evaluate the number.

One of my responses to the question is this. “Reserves mean nothing to evaluate this gold deposit. The question you should ask is, ‘ How has this mine and company stayed operating so long without reserves?’” That is the question I want to answer.

The world gold price may be in a lull for a while. Exchanging $1100 for one ounce of the yellow stuff suites me fine. I’m off to the dump. Your comments are welcomed.

Mined gold totals 163,000 tonnes worldwide: WGC


www.chinaview.cn 2009-12-17 00:36:22 Print

SHANGHAI, Dec. 16 (Xinhua) -- All the gold mined so far totaled 163,000 tonnes across the world, an official with the World Gold Council (WGC) said here Wednesday.

Albert L.H. Cheng, managing director of WGC's far east area, said in a lecture about this year's gold market that 83,600 tonnes of the total amount had been used in making jewelries, while individual investment activities accounted for 27,300 tonnes.

Gold reserves held by countries occupied 28,700 tonnes and 19,700 tonnes went to industrial production or other uses, he cited statistics from WGC as saying.

An estimated of 26,000 tonnes of gold deposit remained undeveloped, and the resource will run out for 10 years based on the current mining speed, he said.

Thoughts on Real Gold:

Traditional testing in the past has been by density calculation (mass divided by volume), but tungsten-lead alloys can be created that almost perfectly match the density of gold or silver, thereby rendering that test useless. Additionally, surface testing with acid chemicals or surface x-ray fluorescence is also an invalid test because in these situations, the outer surface layer of the counterfeit bars remains pure gold or silver, it’s only the center core of the bar that’s been removed and replaced with tungsten or lead/ tungsten alloy.
