    So for the 3rd or 4th straight week in a row Silver once again has went up ANOTHER point/dollar per ounce. What in the hell is going on here that it's going up that much every WEEK!?!?!

    I know our economy is going to hell in a hand basket but it seems like something made the process speed up. So what's happened/happening to cause such a thing to happen? I'm looking for specifics...not just the typical..."we can't sustain things as they currently are".

  3. Check the markets. Dollar down. Gold at all time high. Silver is following suit. Both act inversely to the dollar. Oh, and we are on the verge of a currency war...

    Not complicated.

    But are you saying that there's no real (specific) reason for the recent rise in relation to the dollar?

    Your market example might work on the whole/overall but my stocks are actually consistently going up in value...not down.


  5. Your stocks are going up because the Federal Reserve is pumping money into the market to prop it up prior to the elections. This happens around every election. Think of it as a "false flag" to distract the public from the disaster that is about to hit the U.S....the crash of the economy, the real estate market, and U.S. banking system.

    Just wait until after the elections... :wow:

    Okay, now it's getting complicated.

    But you just said the markets are how does that play into the whole...stocks going up due to money pumping idea?

    Complicated or not...seems like the reasons you mentioned are the currency war and the markets. Right?

    You said check the markets then dollar down. I guess I misinterpreted that. :upeyes:

    But back on track...what happens after the election...statistically speaking?

    And there's no other event that took place to cause what we're seeing other than the currency war and money pumping?

    I just figured something else would cause the rapid decrease in the dollar's value.

  9. Listen, you are going to get tons of answers from everyone under the sun ranging from Obama did it to Bush did it to aliens did it.

    The easier answer is click below to see why the dollar is falling in value so fast

    The more dollars there are, the less each one is worth. Every dollar printed by ANY ADMINISTRATION subtracts value from the dollars in your pocket.

    Keeping that in mind, recent news regarding the Fed intentionally increasing inflation is going to send PMs skyrocketing and the dollar plummeting even faster. Read the article, they want to intentionally cause inflation to force you to spend your money before it is worth less (translation:worthless).

    Whatever asshat thinks that is a good idea should be tried for treason

    On a related note, start reading Schiff, Celente and Faber because they predicted the collapse of '08 and have been predicting currency wars followed by a collapse of the dollar for months if not years now. Current headlines read like lines from their prior articles.
  10. Also, I said a few weeks ago that "the sign" of an impending collapse would be a parabolic rise in PM prices. You were the one that commented that silver has been rising $1 a week for a while, not me. Silver hasn't had a major pullback since about $5 ago (to be honest I wish it would so I could get more on the cheap). However, it certainly seems like the beginning of something major doesn't it?

    The measures of economic instability continue to rise and the measures of the dollar continue to plummet. The only reason the DOW keeps rising is because of inflation and manipulation. I will even stick my neck out and make a prediction: sometime after the elections, the DOW will plummet tremendously because the "too big to fails" will only prosper under a democraticly controlled congress willing to give massive bailouts. This will prompt them to cease the manipulation they are currently engaged to make it appear that returning conservatives (read Tea Party) to washington will be a bad idea.

    If you don't buy the "manipulation" theory, why is it that insider trading shows over 1000-1 are withdrawing money and mutual funds have been hemoraging cash as everyday people are pulling their money out as well.
    So if everyone is pulling money out of the market so fast, how is it still going up?

    Very few, if any, companies are fundamentally more sound today than they were 10 years ago. We have played so fast and loose with the financial system, banks cannot even foreclose no some houses because no one can find the actual title.

    Let me put this into your head if you "own" your house: If BoA cannot find the title to legally foreclose on your neighbor's house, what makes you think they can find the title to hand you when you pay off the loan? Without the title you will never fully own your property.

    Ok, now cue someone who will tell me I am just being negative and all of our fundamentals our sound........
  11. if there is rampant inflation,
    if the fed prints more dollars,
    where should i put my discretionary funds?
    in canned goods, silver coins, paper dollar bills?
    tangible things such as materials, hardwear, food preps, silver coin, mutual funds, sundries.
  12. Bob Chapman sez:

    Gold coins, silver coins and bullion, 3 months cash, "assault" weapons, mags & ammo, freeze dried food, water filters....if you have lots of money, quality mining shares, numismatics. Leave the country. Prepare for violent revolution if November election does not succeed in turning this country around.

    I agree with Bob. I would add, get right with your Maker.

    . . . fed pumps up the market before an election. :rofl: That's a new one on me.

  14. Pay attention, Dennis.

    Don't believe the markets are rigged by our own government?

    Executive Order 12631 signed by Ronald Reagan in 1988. The "President's Working Group On Financial Markets". We know them as the "Plunge Protection Team". Guess who is on that team: The Secretary of the Treasury, the Chairman of the Federal Reserve, The Chairman of the Security and Exchange Commission, and the Chairman of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission.

    And what do you think it is they do?

    In this crucial upcoming election, TPTB can see the writing on the wall and I bet they are pulling out all the stops to keep this market least until after the elections.

    Holy crap!! Government doing or it's kissing 25!!! In less than 12 hours since it hit 24!! What in hell's bathroom is going on here?

    While I like Silver, I'd put food before anything else.

    - 3+ months of food (6+ is even better)
    - 1-2 basic firearms + ammo. Even a couple .22s are good!
    - Some cash in safe at home in case there is a bank "holiday"
    - Only then can you can start thinking about PMs
  19. +1....

    I think food/safe water is crucial!! I've got a gun or two and some ammo. But where I would have agreed but now you lose me is the cash at home idea...

    Previously I would have said to have money socked away. Stacks of bills just in case of a SHTF. However, given that the SHTF seems likely to be those bills becoming worthless...I'm not sure that is the best idea any more.

  21. They can double as pre-cut toilet paper in your scenario. Although I'd run them through the washing machine first. No telling what creepy crawlies are on them.
