80% sannolikhet ÄR bevis på manipulation

I samband med GATAs konferens i London för lite drygt ett år sedan hade jag nöjet att lyssna till James McShirley, som med sin enorma ammunition av statistik över guldprisets rörelser genom åren gjorde både mig och sannolikt alla som lyssnade övertygade om att guldpriset ÄR manipulerat.

Förhoppningsvis kommer ‘Liborgate’ att medföra ett litet ‘uppvaknande’ bland de som fortfarande slumrar.

Här är ett rykande färskt inlägg från James där han sammanställer de mest sannolika manipulationerna av guldpriset.

80% probability IS proof of manipulation

The most overwhelming statistical anomaly is merely the sheer quantity of anomalous manipulations. Most all of these gold manipulations have at least an 80% chance of occurring. To me this is the most incredible part of gold rigging, that certain patterns have 80% or more probabilities of success of happening. Some gold riggings, such as the 1% and 2% rule have closer to 90% probabilities. This can only happen with either official blessing or incredibly deep pockets, or both. Here are 17 manipulations I have either statistically identified with certainty, or am nearly certain have 80% or more chances. I’m sure there are even more if anybody wants to research it further.

* NY trading hours the predominant selling, Asia, others the predominant buying.

* PM fix either lower, or no higher than $5 than the AM fix.

* Gold trading higher from last PM fix on Friday to 1st AM fix on following Monday.

* 1% rule and 2% rule.

* The 2%, 1%, steady, down hard pattern.

* Percentage of sudden, violent plunges drastically exceeds any sudden gains.

* Outside key reversal day negation.

* Technical breakout negation.

* Failed follow-through rally after big daily gain.

* Selloff on jobs report day.

* Selloff on Fed speak day.

* Selloff on London close.

* Selloff on Comex open, or by 9:00AM.

* Selloff tipped off in advance by declining gold stocks just prior.

* Selloff tipped off in advance by weak silver trading just prior.

* Selloff at 3:00 AM signaling upcoming NY Comex weakness.

* A top is reached even when the majority of pundits and ”experts” are calling it.

Friday was the 2% cap job on a rally. Monday was the failed follow-through rally after a big daily gain. Yesterday and today have been Fed speak days, and totally consistent with the long-standing statistical anomalies in all 4 days gold either got capped precisely, or got pressured. The statistical evidence clearly shows gold manipulation is systemic, daily, and on both a micro and macro level.

Dagens citat

Bill Murphy om ‘Lieborgate’:

”Certainly this scandal ought to shut up those who have claimed over the years that if gold and silver were manipulated, a whistleblower would have stepped forward. Well, guess what, the LIBOR scandal is far more grandiose, with way more participants involved, and NO whistleblower stepped forward.”


Dagens sanning



Tänkvärt från Felix Zulauf

Som ni säkert märkt har jag trappat ned lite på inläggen. Det finns flera anledningar till detta. Inte minst att det vi nu bevittnar och som många dras med i enligt min ening bara är ett stort brus, ett slags skådespel på vägen mot den slutliga och oundvikliga nollställningen. Det finns faktiskt inte så mycket att tillägga som inte redan är sagt, både här och andra kloka bloggare. Om det är Spanien som faller innan Italien är t ex sett ur detta perspektiv tämligen ointressant.

En person som jag har stor respekt för är Felix Zulauf. Det här är vad han har att säga:

There is too much debt in the industrialized world and the financial system is virtually bust. Rea/ disposable personal income is stagnating or declining. Employment participation keeps heading south. This produces a chain reaction: Weaker consumer demand in the West weakens manufacturing in places like Asia, which weakens natural-resource producers such as Australia or Brazil.
As for the euro, it is a misconstruction. As I said in January, I expect the disintegration to begin in the second half of this year. That should lead the world into financial and economic chaos. My two major themes into 2013 are euro disintegration and China weakness, due to the bursting of a real- estate boom.
The global economy is weakening cyclically on top of a highly fragile credit system. It is an explosive cocktail. The tower of debt is compounded by the gigantic over-the-counter derivatives market. In the past 10 years the notional value of derivatives worldwide has grown from $100 trillion to almost $800 trillion. The numbers are mind-boggling. if something goes wrong in the real economy, it could shake the whole credit system dramatically. It is a dangerous situation.
The euro is not the real problem but a trigger and compounder of the structural problems. It could only work if the euro zone entered a fiscal and political union, which won’t happen, as Europeans aren’t prepared to give up national sovereignty. Politicians therefore will go from one compromise and quick fix to the next, with the crisis deepening until some nations at the periphery won’t be able to stand the economic pain anymore. They will want their old national currency back, and devalue to adjust the external accounts.
China won’t be able to save us, as it did in 2009. The Chinese will lower interest rates but their actions will be reactive and lag. If my thesis is right, we must assume things will go awfully wrong in the next 12 months and the system will be at risk of collapsing. Most U.S.-focused investors might not understand it as they see corporations doing well.
The potential exists for a broad-based nationalization of the credit system, capital controls and dramatic restrictions on financial markets. Some might even be closed for some time.
We are witnessing the biggest financial-market manipulation of all time. The authorities have intervened more and more, and thereby created this monster. They might change the rules when the game goes against their own interests.
We are in a severe credit crunch. It starts when the weakest links in the system can’t finance their activities. Then you have a flight to safety into Treasuries and German bunds, compounded by a quasi-shortage of good collateral. That’s why bond yields have fallen so low. This isn’t an inflationary environment but a deflationary one.
