We have followed a policy or 'competition' if you will, or 'beggar thy neighbor.'  Every country, to be able to 'compete', MUST ease credit and lower rates at least in line with the U.S., or face watching their exports decline.  It is a race to the bottomless pit of worthless currencies.  No one can afford to have a "strong" currency relative to their trading partners, or they will implode their export and manufacturing sector.

-Bill Holter, Miles Franklin


(QE) not only helps strengthen the US economic recovery; but by boosting US spending and growth, has the effect of helping support the global economy as well.

Andrew Hoffman

Days like today build character; and thus, after "TEN YEARS OF HEAVEN AND HELL," I have lots of character. In years past, when I held 100% of my liquid net worth in "PAPER PM Investments," character was not the only thing I built. Character is good, but LOSSES are bad.


Fortunately, I now think of my "net worth" in terms of OUNCES, which didn't go anywhere today - particularly those stored in our Montreal facility, per my recent "BREAKING NEWS." My sentiment may have been dented - to return shortly - but my ASSETS were not.


Care of the recent, all-encompassing "ELECTION LOCKDOWN," market apathy is as high as I can remember; certainly in the past five years. While Cartel naked shorting of COMEX gold and silver contracts has reached spiritual levels, PPT buying of "DOW JONES PROPAGANDA AVERAGE" futures have similarly skyrocketed...

...particularly when coupled with the superfecta of a MASSIVE "SUNDAY NIGHT SENTIMENT" PM attack - the topic of today's RANT - followed by capping gold ALL night long at the VERY, VERY ROUND NUMBER of $1,750/oz; a WATERFALL DECLINE at the COMEX open at EXACTLY 8:20 AM; another at the PM Fix at EXACTLY 10:00 AM; and, for good measure, a fourth 15 minutes later...

...or today's PM action as ANYTHING other than unabashed, illegal, Cartel NAKED SHORTING...


Fall harvest, by the light of the slippery goons -

James McShirley


The telegraphing was impeccable. On Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday of last week gold was pressured by the cartel trifecta: selling the Comex open, the London close, and the Comex close. Sunday night the assault continued on the open of Comex access trade, leaving this morning as a foregone conclusion. Once weak spec longs are "loosened up" the harvesting can begin in earnest. And harvest they did. A whopping 11,328 contracts traded in just a 4 minute period between 9:51 and 9:54 AM, with 6,328 of those occurring in ONE minute. Hail to the algo harvesters! They might as well have "John Deere" on the front of their computers. If I were an cartel algo impervious to regulatory scrutiny my next move would be to... sell the Comex close, and access trade this afternoon. Maybe take out $1,730 like all the genius pundits are predicting as a bearish technical indicator.


Oh, it's all so neat and tidy. All of the top-calling pundits once more seemingly nailed it. The waterfall crashes keep piling up, and NEVER stop at exact percentages like when gold rises. Just more "daily anomalies," to put it oxymoronically. Only a totally manipulated market would now (allegedly) value gold at LESS than when QE to infinity was launched over a month ago.


Just get me to November after the election farce is over. Gold will rally, managed retreat or not. If it is a managed retreat they'll need to retreat MUCH higher after this round of MOPE is over.

By the way, the large-cap miners recovered from the Cartel's early "HUI DEAD RINGER" attempt - i.e., topping in the day's opening minutes - to recover and close the day nearly unchanged.


In the "old days," I might take such positive, counter-intuitive action to mean the "shares are saying something." However, after years of this theory proving futile, I simply watch and wait...




...particularly when the junior miners have renewed their five-plus year disappearing act - with the TSX-Venture Exchange on the verge of falling below its 50 DMA; not far from its four-year low.


Of course, the junior miners' action long ago decoupled from PM prices; thus, their price action is meaningless, in my view. Frankly, the only thing dying junior mining prices typically portend is weakening financial markets and economic activity...




...which will only catalyze more MONEY PRINTING and surging PM prices...


Gold Price Seen Moving `Easily' Above $2,000


Remember, the REAL supply of PHYSICAL PMs is far less than you believe...

commentaryTuesday Morning Commentary 10/16/2012

Last night, I was asked two "21st century finance questions"; dubbed as such, as they couldn't have been dreamt of in the mid-1990s - let alone, prior centuries.


The first was why I don't trade gold futures, if I know so much about what will happen. In a nutshell, I don't trade off blatantly obvious Cartel signals like this morning's "CARTEL HERALD" - at the COMEX open at EXACTLY 8:20 AM EST - as I don't want to lose money. "Trader X" is happy to do so with other people's money; but I dare him to try it with his own!


24hr gold   

If I neglect my job duties to stare at the screen; shorting when I see such formations or - better yet - speculate that PAPER gold will be attacked at 10:00 AM EST, I may make money; as would have been the case today; care of the same, blatant Cartel tactics as usual...


24hr gold   

But then again, I may not; as shorting into a 12-year bull market is not exactly sound advice. And trust me, gold has had plenty of 8:20 AM EST and 10:00 AM EST surges over the years...


gold intraday  


Additionally, there are taxes and transaction costs to deal with, plus margin costs (and calls) if using leverage, brokerage risks, and systemic risks. Let alone, the human tendency to trade long - as opposed to short - particularly during a bull market. I knew dozens of "day traders" that lost their shirts in 2000-01 because they were too afraid to go short; and I ASSURE you any goldbug attempting to "trade" PMs today would have that same bias.


Not only that, I find it immoral to short sell, particularly as I know Wall Street is now rife with NAKED shorting; i.e., selling shares that don't exist. Thousands of companies have been diluted, discredited, and destroyed by naked shorting - a CANCER that has plagued finance since the "SINGLE-CELLED OPTION."


Which brings me to the second question; "Aren't futures necessary to the bullion business?" The simplistic answer is yes; but in REALITY, a resounding NO!


Over the past three decades, "futures" have been abused as badly as stocks; in that they, too, are NAKED shorted in seemingly limitless quantities. With stocks, naked shorting dilutes the company; suffocating its share price and preventing favorable financing terms. This creates a predicament for ALL company constituents, but pales in comparison to the damage done by naked shorting of commodity futures. The reason, of course, is they create FAKE, PAPER SUPPLY of REAL items like gold, corn, and crude oil - destroying producers; and ultimately, reducing desperately needed supply.


Sure, government agencies like Goldman Sachs make BILLIONS naked shorting...


The Goldman Party Is Back As Prop Revenues Soar, Average Compensation Surges To $404,172


However, farmers, miners, end-users, and small traders are victims of this DEVESTATING crime-in-process. As for the bullion industry, you're darn right it would be more difficult to generate revenues in a "cash and carry" world. However, cash and carry was the ONLY way to do business for centuries, and I ASSURE you Miles Franklin would manage.


Thus, assuming bullion sales could not exist without futures is like assuming cooking could not occur without microwave ovens; which, as you know, didn't exist for the first 3,000 years of human history. In bullion's case, our days are numbered anyway; as ultimately, the industry may close down due to lack of SUPPLY; and/or, government decree when incremental supply is rationed...


depleted supply

Vikram Pandit Bottom Line: Over $260 Million For A 90% Stock Drop


...while the stock plunged 90%. Don't let today's $36 share price fool you, as it was reverse split last year, 1-for-10. Putting it into prospective, I sold my Citigroup restricted shares the day I left Salomon Smith Barney in February 2005, for $50.00/share. Excluding the reverse split ruse, Citigroup would be trading for $3.60/share today...

As for today's "markets," the "DOW JONES PROPAGANDA AVERAGE" has - of course - followed Europe higher; it's only "good news" being fraudulent Goldman Sachs earnings.


As for PMs, as always after a blatant ATTACK such as yesterday's, their rebounds are being CAPPED. You saw the aforementioned gold "CARTEL HERALD" at EXACTLY the COMEX open at 8:20 AM EST; and below, could it not be clearer the Cartel has set up a NEW silver line in the sand at the ROUND NUMBER of $33.00/oz?


Yesterday, silver was smashed at twice the rate of gold; so naturally it was a bit more resilient this morning.  Until EXACTLY the NYSE open at 9:30 AM EST, that is; when Cartel goons yet again WATERFALL DECLINED it toward the unchanged level...

BFI Wealth, Zurich - Swiss Annuities and Managed Accounts    

Miles Franklin and BFI Consulting of Zurich, Switzerland, have partnered for the past two decades in offering access to offshore annuities and managed accounts.  Born at roughly the same time in the early 1990s, both firms have successfully PROTECTED clients via quality, secure, private accounts holding PHYSICAL Precious Metals, annuities, and other managed products.  BFI is a global leader in the sale and maintenance of Swiss annuities and privately managed accounts - particularly to U.S.-based clients; and through its Global Gold subsidiary - utilizing worldwide storage leader Via Mat - offers international Precious Metal storage services in Switzerland, Hong Kong, and Singapore. As with Miles Franklin's Canadian offshore storage program, Global Gold offers allocated storage OUTSIDE the banking system.    

rantSunday Night Sentiment Stats

In my January 31st RANT, "SUNDAY NIGHT SENTIMENT," I wrote of the Cartel's decade-long penchant for attacking PAPER Precious Metals in the thinly-traded Sunday night markets; i.e., when only Hong Kong - or even Sydney - have available trading platforms.


Call it a curse or blessing, but Precious Metals trade 24/5 - plus - care of electronic trading platforms, subject to heavy intervention. Consequently, PM's are typically lower 90% of the time after the NYSE closes, for example. Other markets also trade overnight, such as currencies and crude oil. However, they rarely have material moves in the wee hours; as no one MANIPULATES them with the same intensity.


I have long noted TPTB's last remaining "weapons" of MONEY PRINTING, MARKET MANIPULATION, and PROPAGANDA; cumulatively, utilized to affect popular PERCEPTION; i.e., sentiment.


Moreover, given the tiny size of the global PM community, it doesn't take much to dissipate bullishness; particularly given the constant attacks, smashes, and WATERFALL DECLINES characterizing the market; let alone, the relentless stream of fear-mongering - both inside and outside the PM community; and, most importantly, the tendency of PM believers to avoid PHYSICAL bullion in lieu of highly speculative "PAPER PM Investments" like ETFs and mining shares.


The most notorious "SENTIMENT" attack was the May 1st, 2011 "SUNDAY NIGHT PAPER SILVER MASSACRE", per below. As silver approached its "ultimate triple-top breakout" at $50/oz, industry supply SOLD OUT, yielding genuine Cartel fear of a monetary meltdown.


Thus, with the Chinese market CLOSED for a holiday, and only the thinly-traded Sydney platform open, they attacked silver for $6/oz in roughly 12 minutes; stooping so low as to use the "bin Laden killed card" as cover to "double down" when silver attempted to recoup its losses (as if bin Laden had anything to do with silver)...



Aside from such dramatic, "blitzkrieg" attacks, PMs are always "capped" on Sunday nights during upcycle periods - as we saw from mid-August through the "QE3" announcement in mid-September - and ATTACKED during (Cartel-engineered) downcycles.


Consequently, I do as much manipulation analysis on the upside as the downside. Only after reviewing both sets of data does it become clear just how pervasive the Cartel's activities are; as described in my March 9th RANT, "CHUTES AND LADDERS."


Below, I compared the level of Sunday night silver increases during the three upcycles of the past year, as well as the four downcycles. As anticipated, the average Sunday night increase during PM upcycles - comprising 24 weeks of data - was a miniscule $0.10/ounce...


Sunday Night Sentiment

Gold Upcycles



Sunday Night

Start Date
















...less than a third the average $0.32/ounce decline during the 22 down weeks...


Sunday Night Sentiment

Gold Downcycles



Sunday Night

Start Date



















Of course, the latter data ignores the fact that Cartel blitzkrieg attacks often occur during COMEX hours, negating the need to attack Sunday night, given how much damage was already done; such as was the February 2012 "LEAP DAY VIOLATION," when Cartel forces inflicted a $2.50/oz decline. Conversely, similarly-sized COMEX surges NEVER occur...




The key takeaway - as always - is to understand PAPER markets are but an ILLUSION; following a stale, transparent SCRIPT aiming to divert your capital from PHYSICAL Precious Metals. If you understand, you'll realize why "PAPER PM Investments" are a one-way ticket to the poorhouse, and PHYSICAL gold and silver impervious to such criminal machinations.

The truth has a unique potency all of its own, and it can NEVER have that taken away from it.


There are those in this world that do their utmost to pervert the truth, and have us believe lies. I know you work tirelessly Andy, to expose these evil people (i.e. those perpetrating the frauds and the deceptions - not so much those simply repeating the propaganda without thinking).


Thank you for making it possible for those who are willing to break out of controlled thought, to have a fighting chance at understanding the truth.






Greetings Andy:

Largely due to your VISIONARY analysis I SHRUGG OFF the pre-election lock-down manipulative suppression by the ...CARTEL-DROIDS that continue to delay THE CERTAIN >>>EXPLOSIVE<<< upward LAUNCH of physical...that will TAKE THE BREATH AWAY of even the staunchest (sp?) bulls...the naysayers...the sheeple...the dweebs...the CLUELESS......

The best move I've ever made financially... in the last year, in my life...besides buying physical during the LAST year-long "correction"...which by-the-way was a PHENOMINAL "buying opportunity" esp around early June...was to liquidate my the 10% "penalty" and taxes...and FOREVER leave the CHARADE of Wall Street, never ever to return in this lifetime (I'm 55 next month) until we have a CONVINCING GOLD STANDARD that will SHUT THE HOLES of the CENTRAL BANKERS so I don't gag on a regular basis...!

LOL...just a little Monday night rant so I can get it off my chest...!


Kindest regards...






I couldn't have said it better myself.


Freedom rules!






Hey Andy,


I came across an article on Silver Doctors showing silver Exports from the U.S. and I attach the link.


The charts show a massive jump in exports to the U.K. (LBMA) in July from the USA amounting to 5.5 million ounces.


I remembered reading recently that a client of Andrew Maguire's placed an order for 10 million ounces of silver with the LBMA around June when the silver price bottomed at $26.00. Initially the LBMA refused to deliver the silver to a private vault. I think they had to wait six weeks before they received delivery outside the LBMA vault system.


Is this just a coincidence or could the physical supply of silver be that tight?


If the supply of silver is scarce wouldn't it be much smarter of TPTB to allow the price of silver to rise and hope that holders of silver futures accept a cash settlement rather than demand delivery of the metal. According to Harvey Organ open interest for the Dec 12 silver contract is currently 88000 with only seven weeks until first day notice.

Surely if they attack price now until December even more people will want the physical metal. What is the Comex/LBMA going to do if these people insist on physical delivery? Could a Comex or LBMA default potentially occur in the near future ?


Keep up the great work. We all appreciate very much what you are doing.






I don't trust ANY data published by the U.S. government or its agencies (such as the LBMA and COMEX), so it's meaningless. And I'm highly confident little or no silver exists in its warehouses; lest it would have been delivered in October 2008 or April 2011 - in both cases, when the industry RAN OUT of silver.


As for "TPTB's" intention, trust me allowing silver to rise will not help them. As I noted above, the industry RAN OUT of silver in April 2011; and it will do so again if silver moves into the high $40s - or perhaps lower. That is their greatest fear, as they CANNOT control the PHYSICAL market.
