    A long, long time ago
    I can still remember how that music used to make me smile
    And I knew if I had my chance that I could make those people dance
    And maybe they'd be happy for a while
    But February made me shiver with every paper I'd deliver
    Bad news on the doorstep, I couldn't take one more step
    I can't remember if I cried when I read about his widowed bride
    But something touched me deep inside the day the music died
    So bye, bye Miss American Pie
    Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry
    And them good old boys were drinking whiskey and rye
    Singing this'll be the day that I die, this'll be the day that I die
    Did you write the book of love and do you have faith in God above
    If the Bible tells you so?
    Now do you believe in rock and roll? Can music save your mortal soul?
    And can you teach me how to dance real slow?
    Well, I know that you're in love with him
    'Cause I saw you dancing in the gym
    You both kicked off your shoes
    Man, I dig those rhythm and blues
    I was a lonely teenage bronc'n' buck
    With a pink carnation and a pickup truck
    But I knew I was out of luck
    The day the music died
    I started singing bye, bye Miss American Pie
    Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry
    And them good old boys were drinking whiskey and rye
    Singing this'll be the day that I die, this'll be the day that I die
    Now, for ten years we've been on our own
    And moss grows fat on a rolling stone
    But that's not how it used to be
    When the jester sang for the king and queen
    In a coat he borrowed from James Dean
    And a voice that came from you and me
    Oh, and while the king was looking down
    The jester stole his thorny crown
    The courtroom was adjourned
    No verdict was returned
    And while Lenin read a book on Marx
    The quartet practiced in the park
    And we sang dirges in the dark
    The day the music died

    Did you read my post about what to do in deflation?

    Debt loads are burdensome and the majority you Americans do not have enough savings to pay for a mere $1,000 emergency. People of the world have sold their freedom, their vote (if they had one) and their soul (again - if they had one) to a huge federal free-lunch monolithic monster. Because deflation de funds government tax receipts, the free lunch will sink. Your 401K and other pension plans along with stocks, most bonds, real estate, commodities and collectables will sink as more and more become unemployed. The multiplier effect causes the economy to sink as businesses see sales sink and quickly lay off workers. Next year sales sink again and they lay off more and so on and so on. The multiplier snowball effect becomes an unstoppable vicious cycle of sinking. Per Robert Prechter - Bullish - Only the U.S. Dollar - Short the rest! Get cash or short term government t-bills to be ultra safe this should be your deflation investments strategy for the Greater Depression.

    Robert Prechter's monthly ELLIOT WAVE FINACIAL FORECAST said: "BOTTOM LINE - The world-wide credit crisis is returning to the front burner. In Europe, it is full throttle ahead and spreading. In the U.S., a top in a key index of leveraged loans indicates that all but the highest-grade instruments should start to retreat. Short-term U.S. treasury notes remain the safest place for investments. The uptrend in gold and silver appears exhausted. The next major move in each precious metal will be down. The U.S. Dollar Index is at the forefront of a significant rise, which, based on sentiment measures, should come as a surprise to just about everyone."

    There are few deflation investments in a secular bear market cycle when waves of selling of securities, other assets and collectable items will take place. Remember: "Cash is King" in a deflationary depression.

    Your best deflation investments are the ones returning your principle not necessarily having a return on that principle.

    Deflation investments for safety are short term (90 day) credit instruments like T-bills or money market funds that only buy T-bills. Some 2 year or less CD's at solid banks - EWI has list. Less

    Not if the USD keeps going higher. USD going higher is going to shock a lot of people. I hope your right that we get a bounce so I can close out all my positions in the miners and stay in cash.

    This is a reply to the Latest Barron's article:

    AUGUST 28, 2014 7:06 P.M.
    The Analyst wrote:
    Wonderful opportunity to buy the equity dip (except gold miners) and sell gold shares on the bounce!!!

    The talk of Russian invasion is rather silly. I mean Russia has already invaded Ukraine (Crimea) months ago. So nothing is new here. Let’s face it, if Russia were to really invade Ukraine, the whole show would be over within hours !! So there are Russian troops in Ukraine…. been there for months… of course the rebels were supplied… how else do they get the bullets? That also were there for months.

    Of course Kiev will beat the drums… how else will they get more support from the West? Would you do that if you were Kiev? So this will go on for a while with zero impact on the market, in my humble opinion. It will soon blow over and market will surge and gold will continue to tank !!.

    I agree with the Analyst.

    At this point it has become painfully obvious that once a manipulation zone is established the powers in the paper market can defended them, and each one of these zones are occurring at lower and lower levels.

    I think traders need to recognize this fact and adjust their trading accordingly. One can only go long the sector at an intermediate cycle bottom, and once that rally approaches a manipulation zone get out and stay out until the next intermediate bottom. As this pertains to the gold market right now it would suggest that we aren't likely to see $1320 recovered quickly.

    I honestly don’t know what it is going to take to break this pattern in the gold market. If two ongoing wars isn’t enough to drive gold through the $1320 suppression zone who knows what kind of black swan event will have to occur to trigger a resumption of the secular trend.

    For now I have locked up our gains in the metals and I'm going to continue to sit on the sidelines until gold gets into the timing band for the next intermediate bottom, and that isn’t due for another 7-12 weeks.

    If we see a manipulation zone challenged and broken, that will be our clue that gold is ready to trade freely again. As of right now that would mean a sustained move above $1320. If that were to occur that would get me off the couch and back into the market. If not, then I will wait patiently for the next buying opportunity in 2-3 months.

    So far the SMT has made good money buying these intermediate bottoms and exiting when gold pushes into a manipulation zone. But until the manipulation has been broken, a buy and hold strategy is no longer an option as each one of these zones is occurring at lower and lower levels as the powers in the paper market try to keep the bear market alive.

    So your going to be bullish when three different newsletters say we are going lower? That's a bold call.

    I believe we are as close as we’ve been, since this one year plus correction started, to actually follow through on the next impulse move down, which will take the PM complex to new lows for this bear market. Silver is sitting on a potential massive H&S top neckline also. It’s impossible to pin point the exact moment this next impulse leg down will begin but we have enough Chartology to strongly suggest the next major move for the precious metals complex will be down and not up. Keep a close eye on the bottom rail of gold’s triangle for the first big clue that the PM complex is headed lower. All the best…

    Gold has held a higher low for the third consecutive session as the bears lost their slight edge. Despite the Dollar at the highest level in nearly a year, major support sat just below here in Gold as two major trend lines at 1271.5-1273.4 and 1266 proved to hold. Many investors are beginning to focus on next week’s ECB meeting which is followed the day after by Nonfarm Payroll. Simply put, this was not the time for Gold to violate major support levels and create a clear bear trend. Traders will focus on Durable Goods, Consumer Confidence and Case Schiller data and better than expected releases will likely stop this recovery in its tracks. Support will now come in at the 1281-1282 level and a close below here will negate this morning’s rally. Major resistance comes in at 1286.8 and the bulls must see a close above here in order to solidify a hold against the lows. Light headwind comes at the sessions highs and just above at 1291.7-1293 while major three star resistance comes in at 1296.9-1297.6 and only a close above here will signal a potential bullish move higher.

    This weekend I did a ton of driving. Please google Silver Canyon road from Bishop, CA. to Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest . One heck of of a drive. Scratched the paint all over the place on my truck on buttermilk road near Bishop, CA. That's where I ran into a Navy pilot off for 3 weeks. He said if we went to war with China, we would get our butts kicked.

    Gold and Silver will do what they do. Just don't sell at a loss. Long term veiw we will be safe from the collapse of the dollar. Again, JMHO.

    Might be, driving back from Bishop, CA. today, I saw three billboards advertising we buy gold and silver. Still I believe we head lower even with the earthquake in Napa Valley this morning. I guess nobody really knows what will happen short term. I believe we are all in agreement that gold and Silver will and always will be long term investments. I believe the dollar is doomed and the rest of the world is sick and tired of the USA being the world police. So breaking it down for you, short term? Medium term? Long term, stack like you have never stacked before. I'm talking 2014 gold and silver eagles. If your Canadian, buy into Canada. Pick your target price and good luck. The way the world is now, we are all going to need it. Just make sure you have plenty of food, water, ammo, and practice of your go to SHTF. Yeah, were crazy preparing, so what. Better to be safe than sorry. JMHO.

    I also had recommened to my girlfriend of 14 years, still not married yet, to sell all of her investments in her Roth IRA and move it to a money market account. She made the move yesterday. Now she is now mostly in a money market fund now. It may have been early but at least she took profits and has very limited downside exposure if/when the stock market crashes.
