    Pay attention

    You picked last year, when all the Fed was doing to hold down interest rates was TWIST, selling short term bonds and buying long termers to keep interest rates down. Now they are buying long term bonds outright, without anything to trade them for except printed dollars.

    NOW we enter into an inflationary cycle.

    • Let us not forget that there is stark examples of the repatriation of huge volumes of American dollars occurring. That will serve to compound the symptoms of the out-of-control check kiting being facilitated by the FED. Zimbabwe, the Weimar Republic, and others will be seen as merely pikers when this baby implodes.

      BTW, Paul Broun, Congressman from Georgia, has submitted HR24, Ron Paul's bill to Audit the FED. Public pressure is desirable to enhance this initiative.

      • Any regime that has challenged the dollar supremacy has been quashed throughout history! Like Ron Paul this new order will be quashed.The powers to be are in complete control and when it appears they will lose control the system will implode.While I agree that physical bullion is money and the actual only real medium of exchange the powers that be have been and will continue to supress this medium.The slv/gld are simply venues for this suppression.These paper products can be sold and sold when needed having a direct impact on spot. In the 1930's this was simply not the case. A very big difference to todays market.

        Assett allocation this week will tell the tale for the remainder of this year in gold/silver. There are hedge funds hiding in these artificial products for "safety" when in fact they are simply not a safe investment at this moment.In 1999 when I was loading the ship with gold under 300 and silver below 4 that was safety and has proven a great investment. At this juncture this bull is gettin tired. The bernanke needs to plan an exit strategy for his leaving of the post for the next clown at the fed and just like Greenscum will "normalize" the books. This normalization was just vocalized on Friday and will crush the metals for the foreseeable future.Good Luck!!!

    • Hedge funds have been pushing SLW hard for the last several months predicated on the FEDS QE infinity. Well, that hasnt played out and now appears that fundemental thesis is temporarily broken. People in the commodity markets have been riding cheap money for over 5 years.The hardest part is to understand when that change is taking place.Austerity is NOT inflationary. Higher taxes are NOT inflationary.Government decreasing spending is NOT inflationary.Low wage jobs are NOT inflationary.Rentals are NOT inflationary.Short interest in SLW is 1% of total shares outstanding.That is extremely complacent for a company trading at 16 times sales and a PEG over 4. The valuation in this stock is way over extended for reasons that simply dont make any sense when the price of the commodity in the model is NOT inflating and actually has stagnated for over 18 months.

      The street knows all about this 80 Billion a month and has seen the writing on the wall.That writing is telling people the FED needs to "normalize" policy ASAP. The best way to do that is allow interest rates to rise and the dollar to appreciate hence the reason all commodities are falling.....Look at corn soybeans cotton wheat....Those softs are dropping in the face of one of the worst droughts in history. China cancelled a huge soybean shipment on Wednesday.This is NOT inflationary actions.

      • Everybody "knows" about this $80B? Obviously not, since the 45B for the past year has come out of revenues driven by selling short term debt and buying long term debt, thereby raising long term debt prices and lowering interest rates.

        There is no short term debt left to TWIST into long term debt, these new purchases are strictly from printed money starting this year.

        The street may be reacting to this doubling of what looks like TWIST--but is purely inflationary designed to degrade the dollar to make us more "competitive".

        I can't wait for the dollar to be worthless so we can be the largest seller of goods to the world for essentially--free, since the dollar will be worthless. I'll be a millionaire, but that will be the price of a Big Mac.

        See how that works?

      • Jim Rogers invest in agriculture and energy. If what you claim is true, then you must be smarter than Jim Rogers. Why are you on this board? Mmmmm..... that tells me you are a amateur because professional who have time do not post on this board. They don't even care about this board.

        And when interest rates rise what happens then?
        Where do you get the funds to pay the higher interest due.?
        What happens to your tax base when you destroy consumption?
        I always thought that rising interest rates was a reaction to high inflation.
        The party is over, and the value, and I mean value of any commodity is based on what it commands in relation to other goods and services.
        And lets not forget that the USD is a debt commodity instrument.
        It certainly isn't money.
        It is, simply phrased ...
        A promise that it has value and is tradable for commodities/goods/services.
        Is there an over supply of USD's world wide?
        How did that happen?
        Could it be to pay for interst on debt, and supplying goods and services through social programmes?
        They have no choice but to throw in the towel - it's NOT working.
        The damage has been done and all they have left is that they promise that things are about to get better.
        Act II
        We got nothin left in the tank.
        New plan ....
        Hey, why don't we just tell them that we will be good for it.
        That will be some time.
        So could it be that soy beans are becoming more valuable then debt debased fiat money?
        Your arguements are interesting but the damage is done.
        Inflation deflation, the FED and the banksters don't care.
        Business will be good for them under either scenario.
        The banks already own the USA, Europe - most of the Western world.
        May I make a suggestion, there is an opening coming up at the Treausury and one at the FED real soon ... You should apply.
        I think I would rather have You in charge vs Good ole Jammie.
        The value of SLW will hold, the model is sound.
        And what it is priced in dollar terns is the least of my worries.
