The gold price didn’t do much of anything in Far East trading on their Tuesday. However, about an hour or so before the London open, a smallish rally began that ended in a melt-up at 1 p.m. GMT in London, 20 minutes before the Comex open.
The volume associated with that vertical price spike was enough to trip the CME’s circuit breakers for ten seconds, and after that gold continued to rally, albeit at a somewhat slower pace. The gold price [along with the price of the other three metals] got capped at the 9:30 a.m. EST open of the New York equity markets, and then edged slightly lower as the trading day wore down.
The CME recorded the low and high price ticks as $1,237.40 and $1,267.50 in the February contract.
The gold price closed in New York at $1,262.00 spot, up $21.60 from Monday’s close. The net volume of 153,000 contracts wasn’t overly heavy, but it wasn’t exactly light, either.
The silver price action was a carbon copy of the gold price action, so there’s no need to provide any further commentary.

New budget accord saves $23 billion — after $65 billion spending spree
The Washington Times / By Jacqueline Klimas / Tuesday, December 10, 2013
Mr. Ryan, at a joint news conference with Sen. Patty Murray, Washington Democrat, said the spending plan calls for reducing the deficit by $23 billion over 10 years without raising taxes.
The Wisconsin Republican, the House’s chief budget writer, said the deal would reverse about $65 billion in previously agreed-upon automatic spending cuts to the military and other government programs.
“I see this agreement as a step in the right direction,” he said. “In divided government, you don’t always get what you want. That said, we still can make progress toward our goals. I see this agreement as that kind of progress.”
- Axel Merk, who manages nearly a half billion dollars, says, “The only good news in all of this is that policymakers are predictable. That provides opportunity such as shorting the yen or buying some gold.” Merk predicts, “The risk is something is going to blow up, but the more likely scenario is that we’re going to just keep our heads spinning . . . and we’ll talk again at gold $3,000, and they are still going to say gold is worthless.” Merk concludes, “We have less stability in the world. It is a global phenomenon.” Join Greg Hunter as he goes One-on-One with President of Merk Investments, Axel Merk.

Earlier, Deutsche Bank’s iconoclast Jim Reid dared to point out the painfully obvious: that something has drastically changed since the Great Financial Crisis (what that “something” is, is clear to all those whose year end bonus does is not contingent on never pointing out the printerphant in the room). This time around, instead of looking back, he looks forward, to the year 2014, and brings up the two questions nobody dares to ask: i) what happens if 2014 is the year when the recession can no longer be delayed, and ii) how will the Fed, already having doubled down on every last “bullet” in its arsenal, use monetary policy to provide a burst of growth when even $85 billion in flow per month is no longer enough…
It could shoot up much higher, as dreams of ‘QE Forever’ take hold of investors’ imaginations. Or it could drop like a stone when they realize QE doesn’t really help the economy that their stocks depend on.
Higher or lower. How’s that for a forecast? We thought you’d appreciate it.
What we don’t expect is stagnation and status quo. There’s too much tension in this bow. Either it sends the arrow skyrocketing…or the bow cracks.
As the SEC might say, nothing in this should be interpreted as a recommendation to buy or sell stocks.
If you own US stocks, you’ve got a lot more confidence in the ability of the feds to control things than we do. If you don’t own them, you’re best advised to stay away.

BlackRock said there is a 20% risk that world events could go badly wrong, either because the eurozone acts too late to head off deflation or because of a chain reaction as the Fed starts to wind down stimulus in earnest. As The Telegraph notes,BlackRock’s risk indicator is almost as high as it was just before the dotcom bust. “The ratio of the two is the key. High valuations combined with low volatility can make for a lethal mix. This market gauge sounded the alarm well before the Great Financial Crisis.” Furthermore, the largest asset manager in the world warns, “troubling trends of growing inequality and weak wage growth, bring into question the sustainability of profit margins.” What is good for investors is corrosive for societies, hardly tenable equilibrium.
BlackRock, the world’s biggest investor, has warned that central banks are poised to tighten monetary policy in the Anglo-Saxon countries and China, advising clients to be ready to pull out of global stock markets at any sign of serious trouble.
The group said in its 2014 Investment Outlook that investors have “jumped on the momentum train, effectively betting yesterday’s strategy will win again tomorrow”, but vanishing liquidity could leave them trapped if the mood changes. “Beware of traffic jams: easy to get into, hard to get out of,” it said.

“I write to you from a disgraced profession. Economic theory, as widely taught since the 1980s, failed miserably to understand the forces behind the financial crisis.
Concepts including “rational expectations,” “market discipline,” and the “efficient markets hypothesis” led economists to argue that speculation would stabilize prices, that sellers would act to protect their reputations, that caveat emptor could be relied on, and that widespread fraud therefore could not occur.
Not all economists believed this – but most did.”
But in the defense of the economists I would like to add:
“It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends on his not understanding [or seeing] it.”
Approximately 25% of the Greek people cannot afford healthcare at this time. Cyprus is getting more bail-out money. More than million children are homeless this is more than in the Great Depression. The US is forcing Swiss banks to hand over hidden assets, many are not complying at this time. The US government has extended the agreement for Afghanistan until Feb 2014. The FED has now passed the Volker law which will allow the banks to self regulate themselves, the President says this will be good for the country. China and North Korea are having war games drills and the US is monitoring these drills with satellite surveillance. Israel is reporting terrorist threat from Syria using sarin gas at the Sochi Olympics.

Investors all over the world are confronted by markets that have been dressed up for the amusement of the crew in charge of the ship, and nobody seems to recognize what they are looking at. Sure, they look like markets, but at the same time there is an unfamiliarity that is extremely unnerving to at least a few in the gathering crowd. The majority of the mob, however, have decided that they look enough like markets to charge in blindly in the expectation that all will be as it should.Things are not as they should be. Far from it.
Everywhere one looks are signs that the markets are just monkeys dressed up in fancy costumes…

Today the man who predicted the recent takedown in the gold market ahead of time spoke with King World News about some absolutely astonishing developments in the war on gold. William Kaye, who 25 years ago worked for Goldman Sachs in mergers and acquisitions, also answers the all-important question, have we bottomed in the gold market or not? Below is what Kaye had to say in his powerful and timely interview.
Kaye: “Wholesale demand for gold has been very strong. We have also seen central bank demand for gold very strong at these levels as well. Quite frankly I’m surprised we haven’t seen a bifurcated market yet….

Good evening Ladies and Gentlemen:
Gold closed up $27.10 to $1262.40 (comex closing time ). Silver was up 62 cents at $20.26.
In the access market today at 5:15 pm tonight here are the final prices:
First let us see how London set its GOFO rates this morning:
negativity or backwardation is upon us for the first two months:
GOFO numbers are now decreasing in the positive for all months
GOFO rates negative and thus in backwardation for the first two months and heading for backwardation in the 3 and 6 months as the Eastern nations ask for their gold in London and at the Comex:
Here are today’s readings with yesterday’s comparison:
i) One Month: -.0200000% vs yesterday: -.020000%
ii Two Months: -.003330000000%. vs yesterday: -.00333000%

Let us now head over to the comex and assess trading over there today,
blog.milesfranklin.com / Andrew Hoffman / December 10th, 2013
First off, let me just say that as I write Tuesday morning, a full-blown, biblically-comparable miracle has just occurred. It’s just a start, of course; but I nearly fell off the stair-climber at the gym when gold and silver actually crept higher during the New York “pre-market” trading session, amidst a largely news-less, trendless morning. And then, lo and behold, gold surged $8/oz. in a matter of seconds; just as it has done on the downside on perhaps a thousand occasions over the past 15 years.
In fact, the paper gold market has been shut down by similar, sudden movements four times in the past three months; although in those cases, they were all to the downside. Thus, when I learned COMEX gold trading was temporarily shut by a “stop logic” surge this morning, I was truly shocked. Not that it should surprise anyone that the world’s most undervalued assets lurched higher, of course. However, such market “assaults” are as predatory and manipulative as imaginable; and thus, when they happen on the upside, it’s hard to not sense “something’s afoot.”
I mean, think about it. How much longer can reality be held back – regarding the U.S.’s rapidly deteriorating economy, financial position, and political standing? It’s “PPT” takes equity markets higher daily under the guise of a (non-existent) “recovery”; while the MSM calls for “tapering” despite the nation’s obvious addiction to record low interest rates – per thisterrifying article of the upcoming “after-shocks” of the 2003-08 real estate bubble. Not to mention, the economy-killing terror that is Obamacare; which each day, we learn more discomfiting information about – as discussed in this, equally terrifying article. And oh yeah, this morning’s validationthat the only “growth” America is experiencing is in exploding corporate inventories. In other words, the reality of a collapsing nation has briefly been masked by epic levels of money printing, market manipulation, and propaganda. But for how much longer?

Moments ago, news hit that democrat negotiators Patty Murray, and republican Paul Ryan reached a bipartisan deal to ease the automatic budget cuts by $60b. The deal calls for auctioning of govt airwaves, increased premiums for pensions backed by PBGC, a congressional aide told Bloomberg’s Heidi Przybyla. A press conference will be held at 6pm to unveil the bipartisan budget agreement, according to e-mailed statement. As a result, a January 15 government shutdown will be avoided.
Congressional negotiators reached a modest budget agreement Tuesday to restore about $65 billion in automatic spending cuts from programs ranging from parks to the Pentagon, with votes expected in both houses by week’s end.
Officials said the increases would be offset by a variety of spending reductions and increased fees elsewhere in the budget totaling about $85 billion over a decade, enough for a largely symbolic cut of roughly $20 billion in the nation’s $17 trillion debt.
Among them is a requirement for federal workers to make larger contributions to their own pensions, as well as an increase in a federal security fee that would add $5 to the cost of a typical roundtrip flight.
Officials said Democrats had failed in their bid to include an extension of benefits for workers unemployed longer than 26 weeks. The program expires on Dec. 28, when payments will be cut off for an estimated 1.3 million individuals.

In April of 2008, Casey International Speculator published an article called “Gold—Relative Performance to Oil” by Professor Krassimir Petrov, then at the American University in Bulgaria, now a visiting professor at Prince of Songkla University in Thailand. He told us he thought the Mania Phase of the gold market was many years off, which was not a popular thing to say at the time:
“In about 8-10 years from now, we should expect the commodity bull market to reach a mania of historic proportions.
“It is important to emphasize that the above projection is entirely mine. I base it on my own studies of historical episodes of manias, bubbles, and more generally of cyclical analysis. In fact, it contradicts many world-renowned scholars in the field. For example, the highly regarded Frank Veneroso and Robert Prechter widely publicized their beliefs that during 2007 there was a commodity bubble; both of them called the collapse in commodity prices in mid-March of 2008 to be the bursting of the bubble. I strongly disagree with them.
“I also disagree with many highly sophisticated gold investors and with our own Doug Casey that the Mania stage, if there is one, will be in 2-3 years, and possibly even sooner… Although I disagree that we will see a mania in a couple years, I expect healthy returns for gold.”
It turned out that Dr. Petrov was right. Five and a half years later, here’s his current take on gold and the metal’s ongoing correction…
Louis James: So Krassimir, it’s been a long and interesting five years since we last spoke… Gold bugs didn’t like your answer then, but so far it seems that you were right. So what’s your take on gold today?
Krassimir Petrov: Well, most gold bugs won’t like my answer again, because I think we are still between six to ten years away from the peak of the gold bull. We are exactly in the middle of this secular bull market, and a secular bull market is usually punctuated or separated by a major cyclical bear market. I think that the ongoing 24-month correction is that typical big major cyclical correction—a cyclical bear market within the context of the secular bull market.
Thinking in terms of behavioral analysis, most investors are very, very bearish on gold. People who are not gold bugs overall still dismiss gold as a good or even as a legitimate investment. That, too, is typical of a mid-cycle. So as far as I’m concerned, we are somewhere in the middle of the cycle, which may easily go for another 10 years.
I expect that this secular bull market for gold will last a total of 20 to 25 years, dating back to its beginning in 2000. Some people like to date the beginning of this secular bull market at the cyclical bottom in 1999, while others date it at the cyclical bottom in 2001. I prefer to date it at 2000, so that the secular bottom for gold coincides with the secular top of the stock market in 2000.
French industrial output dropped unexpectedly in October for the second month in a row, data from national statistics bureau Insee showed Tuesday, providing a further indication of a weak start to the final quarter of 2013 in the euro zone.
Industrial production in the currency bloc’s second largest economy fell 0.3% in October from September, when it also fell 0.3%, Insee said. Analysts polled by Dow Jones Newswires had expected a 0.2% rise in October.
The October decline confirms a steady shrinking of output in industry. Over the three months through October, industrial production was 0.6% below the previous three months, Insee said.
The disappointment comes after separate data showed Monday that German industrial production dropped 1.2% in October from the previous month.

1. Bloomberg News reports that gold held in ETPs (exchange traded products) declined again, over the past week. To view a chart of these consistent outflows, please click here now.
2. Gold is a timeless investment, and that means different themes dominate the market at different times. In the 1970s, American investors dominated the gold market.
3. China & India were irrelevant to gold prices then, because they had no real purchasing power. Chinese citizens were forbidden from buying gold, and India was simply too poor to buy significant tonnage.
4. The gold market staged a parabolic advance in 1979, because of Western citizen buying. A horrible collapse followed in 1980. Fearful Western investors sold because Paul Volker raised interest rates dramatically. Indian citizens did buy gold all through the bear market that followed, but supply overwhelmed their demand.
5. The rise in the gold price from 2008 to 2011 revolved around a quantitative easing (QE) theme. Again, investors in the West were a key price driver, but buying from China and India increased tremendously. Most of that Chindian buying revolved around a gold jewellery theme, rather than QE.
6. Do most QE-oriented gold investors in the West fully grasp the ramifications of the massive increase in Chindian citizen demand for gold jewel
As 2013 comes to a close, Marc Faber spoke with King World News about the asset class that is hated even more than gold and silver. Faber also gave his thoughts on where we are headed with regards to inflation/deflation. This is part III of a series of written interviews which have now been released on KWN.
Eric King: “What are you buying and selling right now?”
Faber: “Well, actually the most hated asset at this time, aside from gold and silver, hated even more so is cash. Nobody wants to hold cash because everybody knows that the purchasing power of cash is diminishing….

Despite rumors of a ‘deal’, “The major issues that we think are necessary to jump-start the American economy continue to languish,” reflects one lobbyist on what Bloomberg reports will be Congress’s least productive year ever, with just 56 pieces of legislation signed into law so far. The former record low, reached in 1995, was 88 new laws. 2013 was supposed to be the year lawmakers, free of immediate election pressures, would revamp U.S. immigration policy, pass a debt-lowering budget and expedite a pair of trade deals. Instead, partisan rancor grew deeper; and to make matters worse, the politicians took plenty of time off – the House has been out 191 days, and the Senate 199 days.

Dave is breaking his own rule by publishing this non-family friendly video presentation of the well-known television writer famous for his work on the HBO series The Wire. I believe that David Simon does such a well-crafted job of pitching you on Marx as a diagnostician (if not a clinician) that you need to hear it for yourself. You need to know what is headed your way because 99.9% of what he has to say is true, but .1% is a lie.
At the 16:00 mark he says “If labor is diminished then human beings are worth less.” This is the cornerstone of his thesis and on the surface it seems to make sense. If you view our economy as one where money measures value and labor is the path to money then if you diminish the wage you diminish the person. Dave is not saying that people don’t have needs and even wants. Genesis is pretty clear when it says you will make it by the sweat of your brow until you return to the ground from which you were made. The scene is set that your labor, be it physical or mental, is going to be a requirement to feed yourself.

Facing an increasingly out-of-control federal government in Washington, D.C., record numbers of Americans are giving up their U.S. citizenship in an effort to escape onerous requirements enforced by the IRS — which apply no matter where in the world a citizen lives. Because the IRS requirements have already become so bad, a growing number of banks around the world are refusing to even accept American customers in an effort to avoid U.S. government bullying and mountains of regulations. Following a trend in recent times, with citizenship renunciations continuing to hit new records, some members of Congress are slowly starting to take notice.
According to official figures and experts cited by the Wall Street Journal, almost 2,400 people so far this year have either given up their U.S. citizenship or turned in their green cards. That means the numbers thus far are up by at least 33 percent over 2011, when 1,781 did so, more than twice as many as in preceding years. In 2012, meanwhile, almost 2,000 people reportedly decided to permanently sever Uncle Sam’s grip, and experts say the real numbers are even higher. By comparison, just 742 renounced their citizenship in 2009.
The exodus is widely expected to continue or even accelerate — especially among the wealthy and mobile — unless and until Congress takes action to rein in the IRS and reduce the draconian burdens imposed on Americans abroad. The U.S. government, of course, is almost unique in the world in that it demands that citizens pay U.S. taxes and file massive amounts of complex paperwork no matter where on the planet they reside and work. According to reports, the only other government in the world to seek tribute from citizens abroad is the one ruling Eritrea.
Researchers from the University of Colorado Boulder recently completed analyzing data from a Coronal Mass Ejection that took place in the summer of 2012. The CME, which was reportedly the most powerful electrical discharge ever recorded from the sun, narrowly missed earth. It was not “earth directed,” meaning the electro-magnetic mass was ejected by the sun when it was facing away from our planet. However, had it occurred just a week prior, the highly charged particles would have struck earth and, according to CU-Boulder Professor Daniel Baker, would have led to nothing short of a technological disaster across the globe.
The CME itself was massive… and its speed was unprecedented, clocking in at 7 million miles per hour.
While typical coronal mass ejections from the sun take two or three days to reach Earth, the 2012 event traveled from the sun’s surface to Earth in just 18 hours.
“The speed of this event was as fast or faster than anything that has been seen in the modern space age,” said Baker.
While early warning systems are capable of detecting CME’s and solar flares ahead of time, this particular event happened so quickly that it is unclear if monitoring groups at NASA’s Solar Shield Project would have been able to send alerts to emergency services teams in time.
(Tara Dodrill) Proposed EPA regulations could soon impact how you use streams on your own land.
The controversial Environmental Protection Agency proposals, previously reported by Off The Grid News, were listed as priorities on the White House’s 2013 fall regulatory agenda released in late November.
The proposals would define “waters of the United States” under the Clean Water Act as including not only rivers and lakes but also streams, because the EPA says, streams are “connected to and have important effects on downstream waters” – that is, rivers and larger bodies of water.
EPA’s definition of streams would include large and small creeks and streams and also seasonal creeks and streams, the proposal said. The proposal further said that wetlands and open-waters in floodplains of streams and rivers “are integrated with streams and rivers.”
There are 3.5 million miles of rivers and streams in America, according to the EPA. No doubt, thousands if not a few million homes on private property reside next to streams, which often run through what homeowners would call ditches.

Between new lows, new highs, advancers, decliners, lagging volumes, and stalling momentum, technicals have signaled another Hindenburg Omen (following Friday’s) as the cluster builds once again. While it may not have lived up to its ominous name in the last year of liquidity, it highlights market anxiety and internals are growing more concerned… still believe the taper is priced in? Strength in Treasuries and gold (and silver) suggest safe-havens are being sought after. VIX is on the rise once again (and its most inverted in over 2 months); and even JPY carry traders (which dragged stock lower tick fgor tick with EURJPY once again) reduced exposure.
goldmoney.com / By Alasdair Macleod / 09 December 2013
I imagine many GoldMoney customers read much commentary relevant to gold and economics, and come up against Say’s Law. Its importance might not be immediately obvious.
Jean-Baptiste Say was a French businessman and economist in his early twenties when the Bastille was stormed and the French revolution followed. While the terrors unleashed by the revolution are what we remember from history lessons, what is less known are the financial difficulties that France faced leading up to that fateful year: a combination of heavy public debt and a large financial deficit. In the years that followed France suffered an inevitable currency collapse.
It was against this background that Say concluded that to understand commerce you should ignore money, because people make products to acquire other products, or “products are paid for with products”. And he also wrote “Money performs but a momentary function in this double exchange; and when the transaction is finally closed, it will always be found, that one kind of commodity has been exchanged for another.”

There has been quite a bit of discussion lately over the rapid reduction in the government’s budget deficit as it relates to economic growth going forward. Just recently my friend David Rosenberg noted in his daily missive:
“The federal deficit, 10% of GDP just four years ago, is below 4% today and on its way to below 3% a year from now, largely on the back of tough spending cuts and a big tax bite (this is not just about the Fed’s interest rate program though that too has helped.)”
There are 3 issues that will likely impede further progress on the deficit reduction in the months ahead; 1) lower rates of tax revenue, 2) weaker economic growth and 3) greater levels of spending.

I have wondered for years now whether or not the perceived “foolishness” of the leadership here in the U.S. was really foolish or if it was really a planned “gutting” from the inside out. I think it was as far back as 2007 that I started scratching my head on this issue. As time went on I became more and more convinced that “no one could be this foolish” and in fact the actual plan was the destruction of our economy and thus our way of life and ultimately our sovereignty.
Yesterday, Alisdair Mcleod released a great piece that I would urge everyone to spend 5 minutes reading. In this he “puts the pieces of the puzzle together.” For 2 years (in reality much longer) the world has been changing drastically behind the scenes. We have not really seen it in the press (except in small pieces and excerpts) but we have felt it in our daily lives as economies have slowed further and further. The changes behind the scenes have been that of “changing alliances” and the U.S. regularly being pressured and isolated. We have watched as China has scoured the globe and made deals for raw materials on every continent, even Canada now has deals in place to supply China with raw material.
China has warmed relations in all directions. They stand directly next to Russia and have wooed former U.S. allies from Saudi Arabia to even Great Britain. They have done this not through force or pressure as has been the methods of the U.S. for so many years. No, they have created business arrangements that are “good” for both themselves and their trading partners. While they were doing business, Russia had the role of standing tall against the U.S. militarily as most recently illustrated over the Syrian conflict.

The title of the article is not hyperbole. The Air Force is indeed preparing to steal as many homes as needed to fulfill two objectives: (1) To ensure the profitability of the military industrial complex (2) To use the mission of the Air Force to drive down home values, in the adjacent areas to a planned CANAMEX highway and to force as many people as possible off of their land in the process in furtherance of the North American Union (SPP).
We estimate that anywhere from 15 million Americans to 20 million Americans will be impacted by the Air Force’s shenanigans and will suffer greatly reduced property values or be forced off of their land entirely WITHOUT COMPENSATION.
How is the Air Force going to do it? Is your property safe if you don’t live in the immediate area adjacent to an Air Force base? How has the Air Force become the prostitute of the globalists? These questions, and many more will be answered in this article.
The Air Force Has Indeed Become the Prostitute of the Globalists
All across this country, in more than a dozen cases and growing, the Air Force is busy forcing people off of their land in order to preserve the profits of Lockheed Martin and other military industrial complex organizations. The newer breed of Air Force aircraft (e.g. F-22, F-35) is far too noisy to be compatible with nearby metropolitan areas. The Air Force has become excessively underhanded in dealing with the public on this matter.
The F-16, the backbone of the Air Force for decades, is loud, very loud. Cities in proximity to Air Force bases have barely been able to coexist and in some cases they have not. The F-22 and the F-35 are several times louder than the F-16. In fact, the two planes are 4-12 times louder than the F-16 depending on the type of maneuvers being executed by the planes. The Air Force is lying and they will tell you there is no difference in sound, but I have the original sound test studies performed at Eglin Air Force Base by sound engineer, Bob Webb, who makes these claims as part of an Air Force study that he headed. The scientific studies demonstrate that the decibel levels of these planes are consistent with an increase in strokes, heart attacks, hearing loss, generalized anxiety disorder and a whole host of other ailments. So, not only are the property rights of millions of Americans at risk, so is their health.

The topic of whether central banks have destroyed the global business cycle to the point where all we have is phase jumps from one bubble to another (with an intervening depression in the interim) where central banks inject record amounts of new debt-created liquidity to cover up the credit excesses of the most recent bubble, has gained prominence following the recent comments by none other than the almost-Fed head Larry Summers who advocated the creation of an even bigger asset bubble to push the economy onward and upward. Below we present some much more sober and rational thoughts on this topic by Deutsche Bank’s Jim Reid.
Do we need bubbles for growth?
The worrying feature of the DM economy over the last decade or so (and perhaps longer) is that it seems that we’ve needed to pursue ever looser policy to enable us to hang on to what has actually been lower and lower trend growth. However the consequence appears to be that markets have moved from bubble to bubble. On the slowing growth front, Figure 7 tracks real GDP growth by decade for the G7. It’s quite clear that growth has been on a declining trend now for several decades with this century’s growth being very disappointing across the board in spite of very accommodative monetary and fiscal policies and the inflating of at least two major asset bubbles around the globe.
