    MAJOR DERIVATIVE MELTDOWN ALERT

    There are some really weird things happening out there, says Clive Hyman http://www.cnbc.com/id/15840232/?video=1004555064&play=1 But he declined to discuss them on TV. Anyone care to hazard a guess?

    Conspiracy stuff - Real or imagined?

    I posted a speech he made some years ago on an oil BB and was roundly abused for my troubles. In that speech Williams spoke of how he was present when they made an enormous discovery in Alaska but this was immediately covered up as the elites did not want the world to know. I found what he had to say to be very interesting but there's no way of verifying that story. I have not come across him talking of the oil price being trashed to weaken Russia and OPEC but there's plenty of material on the web about Reagan manipulating the oil price with the Saudi's help to bring an end to the Soviet Union. But if that's what Williams is contending then I agree with that view - it's financial warfare out there. I wouldn't say the USA wish to weaken OPEC as such; Iran yes, Venezuela yes, but it's surely collateral damage with the other countries. Have you a link?

    Tories to give you £6,500 if elected!

    I remember going into MFI some 2/3 years ago. We thought we'd get a bookcase they had on display. However, they told us that they had none in stock but if we really wanted one, they order it and it'd take a week or two to come in. We went elsewhere. It might have been B&Q....

    Madoff Scandal

    There's no doubt in my mind that Madoff is protected by people of great influence. After all, why is he still not in jail even after trying to post valuables to friends and relatives? Someone is looking after his butt. Catherine Austin Fitts commented that Madoff couldn't have done it on his own; he had to have institutional backing to have carried on for so long. There are some interesting comments at http://counterpunch.com/ I guess Madoff was part of this conspiracy to stiff the rest of world - just an extension to selling the toxic paper beyond the good old US of A. January 15, 2009 Primex Trading's Dark Pool Operations Wall Street Powerhouses Invested Alongside Madoff By PAM MARTENS There has been much debate among Wall Street veterans as to why major European investment banks suffered serious damage from the Bernard Madoff Ponzi scheme while our biggest U.S. investment banks escaped unscathed. For the past two decades, Wall Street watchers could count on four U.S. firms to land in the middle of every securities scandal. From Nasdaq price fixing to fake research to rigging the IPO markets to peddling toxic subprime assets, one could rest assured that Citigroup's Smith Barney, Morgan Stanley, Merrill Lynch and Goldman Sachs would be heading the lineup. Their complete absence from the greatest Ponzi scheme in history raises the question: what did they know and when did they know it? The answer may reside in a pentagonal structure created in 1999 to serve the interests of a Wall Street cartel. On September 14, 1999, it was officially announced that Citigroup's Smith Barney, Morgan Stanley, Merrill Lynch and Goldman Sachs had partnered with Bernard Madoff to compete head on with the New York Stock Exchange in a venture called Primex Trading. Madoff had bought the rights to a new technology called Financial Auction Network (FAN) created by Christopher Keith, a 17-year veteran of technology creation at the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE). Mr. Keith had retired from the NYSE and started a technology think tank in lower Manhattan in the early 1990s called Exchange Lab. FAN was one of the early technology offerings and the rights to develop it were bought by Madoff. The firm that emerged was Primex Trading, a division of Primex Holdings. (Primex Holdings holds two patents and may be part of those secret Madoff assets the court won't release to the public.) In addition to harnessing the brains of Mr. Keith from the New York Stock Exchange, Primex hired Glen Shipway, the Executive Vice President of the over the counter stock market, Nasdaq, whose duties had included market surveillance of broker dealers like this gang of five. The partners made a big splash in the press at the time, extolling altruistic intentions of getting better prices for their customers in an electronic version of the New York Stock Exchange.

    A Short Guide To Buying Coins

    I was checking out Baird's website. Looks like they have coins available. Their update for 5 Jan said: "Latest stock: SOVEREIGNS (all types), 1/4 Krugers, 1/4 Brits, 1/2 Brits, 1 oz Pandas, Austrian 10cor, French/Belgian/Swiss 20fr"

  10. Now here's something even scarier http://globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=11491 I've asked a friend who's into this sort of thing and he agrees with almost all that's written. He said the battle started in 1988 when Summers found that all he needed was to rig the gold market.

    A Short Guide To Buying Coins

    I just had a look at their website. Looks like they have been cleaned out of stock. All coins have been sold out while ingots are "Coming Soon". Every item was available a month ago.

    Gold Comments - 2nd Half

    There's a very interesting take on gold at http://www.marketoracle.co.uk/Article6724.html The page is best viewed using Mozilla Firefox with Adblock Plus - takes out all those distracting ads. If I have posted this in the wrong section of this website, please move my post.

    A Short Guide To Buying Coins

    Thanks for the heads up id5. At the moment, I've got a very big punt on a special situation. If that comes right, I'll have plenty of cash for coins. BTW, if anyone is desperate to lay their hands on silver coins over in the USA, you can get them direct from First Majestic http://www.firstmajestic.com/s/Home.asp I understand they will not sell them for under $15 per oz (but check with the company)

    A Short Guide To Buying Coins

    I see that Chards are asking £19.95 per 2008 silver Britannias http://24carat.co.uk/silverbritanniasframe.html while the Royal Mint is only wanting £16.95 each (with free p&p) http://www.royalmint.com/PackedSets/BR08AG.aspx Gee, no wonder they have silver coins available. Even at the latest exchange rate of $1.73 with a silver price supposedly at $11.80, that's one hell of premium.

    A Short Guide To Buying Coins

    Wow! This is such an informative thread! Thanks everyone and especially id5. While trawling through the web, I see that Chard says they have silver coins available (I haven't called them to confirm if this is still true) http://24carat.co.uk/silverframe.html I'd love to buy a bag of silver coins if they are still in stock but your warning is putting me off. I have bought from Chard before - just the once, some 3 years ago or so when 120 gold sovereigns cost me £7K. I then bought a Fisch and checked the coins (yes I have now seen your advice to give that a miss and save my money but that post wasn't around at that time) and every one passed the test. So from past experience, it might be worth chancing it that Chard wouldn't sell duds?
