What do people think of our opinions?
After following several analysts and newsletters for the past couple of
years, and getting my head caved in a few times, I found your work putting a lot
of missing pieces together, and summarizing-analysing what my observations were
telling me but my brain hadn't yet figured out. The "why nothing was as it
seemed", problem with our price-managers gyrations-manipulations and speculator
proclivities in our increasingly centrally planned markets.
I don't know how you guys can crank out so much good work weekly, but I am
very glad you do! I'm afraid to tell too many people about TC, because I don't
want it to stop working! (but I'm sure if that happens you'll find a way to make
it work again). Although I am tempted just to begin my permanent exit strategy
out of the markets and take my chair away from the fraudulent game of musical
chairs as choreographed by our wall street-central planners,(by way of- The
Automatic Earth strategy), your work is keeping me on top of the action and
away from the game when I need to be and I appreciate it.
For the Captain;
Since a lot of writers missed completely what you didn't
miss, I've been talking to other people about your letter. They can't
believe what I learned from your articles, and how much I saved...$$$ MEGA .
So far 4 people joined the site and only 2 weeks later they all had to say
the same thing: why didn't I know about this at least in early 2008 ? Or
just a few months ago ?
All the best and you are THE MAN OF THE
YEAR in my books.
"Whether mining stocks build a base for a sustainable rally over the
next 6-8 weeks or continue to fall, there is no point in our moping
about what has already occurred. It is not a correction we have
witnessed, but more like a crash, and although we’ve taken the
necessary steps to neutralize our risk no matter what the market
brings, I can’t guarantee you that the worst is over. Granted, there
are still plenty of reputable gurus out there who are quite bullish on
gold’s long-term prospects, including James Sinclair, Jim Dines, Doug
Casey, Martin Weiss and your editor. But there some quite respectable
bears as well, including the pseudonymous “Captain Hook.” If you’re unafraid to pursue the truth wherever it may lead, click here for the chart-heavy Captain’s trenchant analysis."

"Putting words into the mouth of Captain Hook, of TreasureChests.info, I note
that economic history is always boom-bust, therefore it is cyclic, and it therefore
it always repeats itself. He writes 'we would like to point out that like Rome,
where it was not outside forces that finally caused its demise, but the rot
from within, sooner or later price managers / bankers / politicos will have
wrung as much speculation out of the current population as possible, and stock
markets (most equities) will ultimately collapse in price.' "

to the Bank for International Settlements (BIS), the combined turnover
in the world's derivatives exchanges totaled USD 344 trillion during Q4
2005. No, that's not a typo, that's $344 trillion of notional value,
where if one were to annualize a total, it doesn't take long to figure
out the world is now trading in excess of a quadrillion worth of this
paper every year. Is that a big enough bubble for you? And it goes
without saying this has been a boon to the brokerages and banks that
deal in these formerly exotic financial instruments, where whether you
realize it or not, even if you don't participate in them directly,
simply by owning a mutual fund, or a bank account for that matter,
indirectly you too are captive to this trend.
"In the end then,
it's important to realize derivatives and debt are all forms of phony
money, designed to artificially pump up an ailing financial system.
Moreover, once more people not only begin to realize this, but act on
this knowledge, gold, silver, and any of the other real 'hard'
currencies you care to mention will come into their own."

I am just a little guy who must say, you are one amazing guy. This last
article is amazing the way you have taken sophisticated concepts and
reduced them for the "man in the streets'. I sure do thank you.
Your "Bees" article appearing in 321gold.com was the best summary article
that I've read to date regarding commodities, shortages, peak oil, etc. The
only question I might have is the possibility of a financial crash and its
effects on these sets of issues. Otherwise, it was a terrific job of tying in
history and the present problem.Regards, J.V.
Wow, Dave, your
projections are incredibly eye-opening. If you’re
right, it makes the direction of our investments easy to determine. I’d love to ask how you can project that
specific of a timeline, but I’m sure that would take a long explanation. Thanks, and keep up the
good writing, you’ve made me a fan. J.C.
