Great and Wonderful Friday Morning Folks,

      Gold reached close to, then up to $1,856.60 then was pelted back (both times) with London doing what it always does, slamming the prices before Comex opened with the trade now at $1,847.90, down $3.50 after creating a new low of $1,844.10. Silver’s punch was far more noticeable with the high so far at $25.865, with the “just happened now” low at $25.175, with the “right now price” at $25.295, down 50.7 cents so far this morning. The US Dollar is up 24.5 points, with no fundamental support anywhere, and right by London’s high at 90.49 with the low at 90.195. Of course, all this happened while we slept, before the Comex open, London closes, and after Veritas Video released Jack Dorsey’s “Must Control What He Says” against a single account @RealDonaldJTrump, and the Q movement, with a much broader meaning implied. We have to ask, why is Dorsey telling his employees to block these sites (plus a hell of a lot more) if they are truly fake news? Are not the people who read these, smart enough to make their own decisions like Jack?

      Venezuelans now have an 18,455.90 Bolivar price per ounce of Gold, gaining 44.94 overnight with Silver’s last price at 252.634, showing a 0.20 Bolivar-loss. Argentinians have to cough up another 563.66 Peso’s to get an ounce of Gold with the now price at 158,261.60 with Silver buyers having to do the same, adding 0.77 A-Peso’s with the last price at 2,166.40. Turkey’s price for Gold is also proving a gain with the last trade at 13,702.27, up 89.84 Lira with Silver gaining 0.674 of a T-Lira with the last price for the week at 187.593.

      January Silver’s Delivery Demands now stand at 196 fully paid for contracts waiting for receipts with a Volume of 41 already up on the board and a trading range between $25.47 and $25.43 with the last trade at the high, down 27.6 cents while London’s paper pushes the futures prices lower. Yesterday’s full day of Ice/Comex Delivery trading happened with “no price” as the Resolute buyer came in to purchase 66 contracts via “Comex’s Claimed Spread Trade”, closing the day out at $25.194, a gain of 22.6 cents, helping to reduce the Demand Count by 94 contracts that might have gotten receipts. Silver’s early morning Overall Open Interest has a total of 168,964 contracts trading against the physicals, proving a small reduction of 379 leaving the field of play.

      January Gold’s Delivery Demands now has a total of 330 fully paid for contracts waiting for receipts with a Volume of 25 already up on the board with the “no price” spread entry, again. Yesterday’s full day of trade happened in between $1,850.70 and $1,836.70 with the last buy at the high, proving a loss of $3.30, that had a total of 149 new purchases (Volume), which raised the demand count by 88 contracts. Gold’s Overall Open Interest lost 89 contracts helping to suggest that all of the activity was inside the deliveries with today’s early morning total at 556,631 Overnighters as we wait for that last Comex bar to gain huge value.

      Going back to Twitters-Dorsey and bringing in Facebooks-Zuckerberg; both owners of formerly popular communication platforms, have done everything they could to silence Trump, his followers, and “Q”, for over 4 years. Now Twitter has fully blocked the legally elected president and his administration, to push a narrative blaming Trump for the riots. If you believe CNN, MSNBC, CBS, or FOX, without even listening to Trumps speech that day, you’ve been duped again. No one who watched or reviewed the speech need to prove it, it’s right there for those who are open minded enough to look at the video. Those that refuse, choose to remain blinded. This act of blocking a standing president’s freedom of speech, should bother all of America, that believes in the First Amendment.

      Main Stream Media’s programmed grip on their viewers is overwhelming to say the least. MSM seems to have totally blocked all the videos showing the faces of the rioters, yet the alternatives have all the video’s too, proving those little darlings from Portland, Seattle, Phoenix, and another Trump supporter, who is ironically a registered democrat, that has a NY judge as a father, were at the very front of the attack on the capital. Maybe this is why every single old school fake news service rating’s, have collapsed and the alternatives have skyrocketed, these past few years. Immediately after Twitter removed Team Trump, helping to prove the “Not My President” league, is a real group, they’re revenue streams took a massive hit. This is a direct response to people like Dorsey and Zuckerberg, who cannot allow the Freedom of Speech because it blocks their other agendas!

      More important than these platforms and TV’s attempt to redirect the masses, is the voter frauds, brought forward with thousands of signed affidavits, with hours and hours of video proving the frauds, with video proof of multiple recounting of the same ballots, those raised panels blocking all observers views, with many DNC Fulton County officials, including GOP Gov Kemp and SOS Raffensperger, refusing to attend the hearings that provided this evidence. No one who has watched these hearings, or looked at the videos, the msm refuses to post, have to tell anyone they are wrong. It should be these news services. The same news services that have intentionally blocked everything about the crimes in the markets, like Silver and Gold manipulations by the hands of brokers and those non-brokers of JPMorgan and their friends in international banking. Q has not posted anything since December 8th, and even that post was deleted. Why delete a single song, seriously?

      Enjoy the day, the weekend, and stand down. The media is intentionally hiding things, and pushing other things forward, maybe in order to hide the newly declassified ‘Foot-High’ stack of Russia-gate, Obama-gate documents; set for release within days, that President Trump just signed off on, last night. Look at the Docs yourself or trust your media services to tell you what is real. Afterall, it’s our choice, but the Freedom of Speech is our right! Keep the faith, have a smile on your face, and as always …

Stay Calm!

About this time last year, financial writer, market analyst and precious metals expert Craig Hemke predicted the Fed would encourage inflation and gold would finish the year at around $1,800 per ounce.  It finished at a little more than $1,900 per ounce.  Hemke was spot on.  So, what is Hemke predicting this year?  Hemke says, “In my annual forecast that I just published last week, one of my themes was ‘don’t fight the Fed.’  If you have been a stock market investor, I am sure you have heard that term used before, and it works for the precious metals this year as well.  The Fed will take some significant actions over the course of this year, and that will drive gold and silver higher.  Gold will go to new all-time highs at some point, and silver is going to participate too.”

Great and Wonderful Tuesday Morning Folks,

      Precious metals continue to recover, in ever so slow a fashion, with Gold now at $1,858.40, up $7.60 after reaching up to $1,864 and afterwards, down to $1,841. Silver is up 18.6 cents at $25.47 after it reached up to $25.745 then down to $25. The US Dollar is stagnant with the trade up 0.008 at 90.45 after the support was turned on when the value dropped to 90.285 with the high at 90.60. Of course, all this happened before 5 am pst, the Comex open, London close, and after permanently banning Trump, and other conservatives from its platform, Twitter’s stock plummets, apparently someone doesn’t want a president to be heard at all, as his email service was shuddered as well.

      Gold under the Venezuelan Bolivar gained 96.88 overnight with the last buy at 18,560.77 with Silver at 254.382 Bolivar, scratching back 4.645. Argentina’s currency now has Gold’s value pegged at 158,563.39 Peso’s adding back 1,173.77 with Silver doing the same, gaining 43.83 with its last price at 2,172.39 A-Peso’s. Over in Turkey, Gold has almost recovered all of yesterday’s pull with the last buy at 13,905.43 Lira, gaining back 145.49 of the 147.38 pull from yesterday with Silver at 190.600 T-Lira, getting back 4.507 from yesterday’s 10.75 hit.

      January Silver’s Delivery Demands now has a total of 366 fully paid for 5,000-ounce contracts waiting for receipts with a Volume of 7 up on the board and a trading range between $25.335 and $25.105 with the last buy at the high, up 14.6 cents since yesterday’s close. Monday’s delivery activity had a total of 11 contracts with a full day’s trading range between $25.52 and $24.725 with the last purchase at $24.825 a gain of 24.3 cents, with the Calculated Comex Close higher at $25.239 a gain of 65.7 cents, that only reduced the demand count by 4 contracts that got receipts. Here’s a frustration about Comex and their ways; the way I hear it brokerages have to pay up to $1,000 a month for “live feed” per computer, and the accuracy should be worth something but alas, it apparently doesn’t matter after yesterday mornings post of 175,192 in Open Interest was still up on the board, way after 5 am in the morning, which proved a drop of 86 contracts, yet Harvey Organ, who gets his data after the Friday Night Closing showed a larger drop, which now coincides with today’s Comex numbers, that 5,490 contracts left the field of play, yet Comex keeps those who pay for live feed in the dark, which leaves this mornings questionable Open Interest total to 169,702 contracts trading against the physicals. Also, during yesterday’s trades, Comex upped the physical demand count by 1 from 369 to 370, before reducing it to 366 today.

      January Gold’s Delivery Demands now has a total of 136 fully paid for contracts standing for receipts with a Volume of 14 up on the board and a trading range between $1,859.70 and $1,849 with the last buy at the high, a gain of $10.10 so far today. Yesterday’s full day of delivery activity happened in between $1,849 and $1,826.50 with the last buy at $1,847.50, a gain of $13.40 with a CCC at $1,849.60 a gain of $15.50 that helped reduce the demand count by 355 contracts that got receipts, maybe. Yesterday morning’s Comex antics showed 491 in the delivery count way after 5 am, then reduced that by 17 contracts, sometime during the trading day, to 474, then to start this morning off at 136 contracts still waiting for receipts, maybe. Gold’s Overall Open Interest at the Comex also got skewered over Sunday night and yesterday, with today’s starting total at 553,842 paper contracts to go against the physicals, reducing the count by 13,325 contracts. Yesterday morning’s tally (which I prove several times with my calculator before I post) revealed a drop of 1,018 contracts. Which gave us the idea that the Resolutes were standing strong. If the Comex computers can’t keep up on accuracy, why does anyone have to pay for it?  

      There is no doubt, regardless of which president one wants, the chatter going on is way beyond anything in the past. Listening to Trump’s January 6th speech directly, without the guidance of media, has many scratching their heads about the media claims that Trump organized an attack of the capital building. During the event at the building, not the speech, pictures of the first ones to enter the capital looked exactly like those same agitators from Portland and Seattle, who have been documented for months by Andy Ngo on Twitter. Andy has been attacked, beaten, threatened at his home by these Antifa terrorists. One of those documented violent thugs, just so happens to have been at the shooting of Ashli E. Babbitt, named John Sullivan, who the media now claims, is a Trump supporter. He just so happens to be an organizer, with a history of leftist protests, was at another killing, and identifies with Black Lives Matter. John Sullivan was released by the capital police immediately after the arrest, again. And they call this White Supremacy. There is far more challenge to the narrative, but we’ll leave that for the future, which apparently is set to surprise.

      With a week to go, Trump last night, issued an Emergency Declaration for DC. Nancy of course is rumored to be without her personal laptop, and a few others as well had theirs “stolen” like Oregon Sen. Jeff Merkley, and House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn iPad being taken. Then yesterday Secretary of State Michael Pompeo stated ‘This Fight Is Inside the Gates Today’. Putting this all together is impossible, for now, yet precious metals are telling us nothing to see here, all is well.

      Keep your metals close, and get more while you can at these cheap prices. Surprise or Not, Silver and Gold should have moved higher already, much much higher. As always

Stay Strong!

Financial writer and precious metals expert Bill Holter says be prepared for major financial instability.  Holter contends, “This is the biggest financial bubble in all of history by far, by orders of magnitude.  So, it doesn’t matter who is running the show, the wheels are going to fall off.  The question in my mind is whether it’s going to go down under the rule of law or not under the rule of law.  Under a Left regime, there is a rule of law for everyone else and no rule of law for them.”

How bad is the global debt problem?  Holter says, “I’ll just give you just one number.  Global debt is now $273 trillion.  (In the 2008-2009 debt crisis, global debt was about half that.)  With that $273 trillion in debt, can interest rates ever go up?  They cannot allow interest rates to ever go up.  They can never taper balance sheets.  They have to put their foot on the accelerator and push it through the floorboard to keep this thing alive.  That debt has to be serviced.”

Bill Holter’s Commentary

Many want to know what happened this week to gold and silver. GATA’s Chris Powell explains it was the same old same old on steroids while Pam and Russ Martens explain where the funding came from…

Will This Day Of Spectacular Intervention Nudge Any Consciences?
January 8, 2021

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

This week rioters incited by the president breached the U.S. Capitol, the president’s mental health was thrown into urgent question again, the dollar was sinking fast on international exchanges, the U.S. economy was crashing, unemployment was rising, and the president-elect announced that the new national administration would be distributing trillions more dollars in pursuit of economic recovery.

So why were monetary metals prices hammered with unprecedented violence and why did stock prices rise again?

Of course all that is exactly why.

This things prompt massive if surreptitious government intervention in the markets.

This is a very old story that still cannot be told by mainstream financial news organizations.

Pam And Russ Martens: More Evidence Of Use Of ‘Stimulus’ Money By ESF To Rig Markets
January 8, 2021

After Mnuchin Demanded that Fed Chair Powell Return Hundreds of Billions from Its Emergency Lending Facilities, Fed Sends Back Just $41.3 Billion

Wall Street on Parade
Friday, January 8, 2021

We have become convinced that the allocation of $454 billion under the CARES Act stimulus legislation to cover any losses incurred in the Fed’s emergency bailout programs was a dog and pony show created by U.S. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin (who has testified to Congress that he helped write the legislation) in order to provide Mnuchin with a slush fund to trade in markets.

Our suspicions are heightened by the fact that the Fed ran very similar emergency bailout programs from 2007 to 2010 and did not require any funds from the Treasury to backstop losses. The Fed simply relied on collateral from the Wall Street firms borrowing from the Fed. If those firms don’t have the collateral today, then they’re likely insolvent and not legally allowed to borrow from the Fed.

We have carefully reviewed the CARES Act. There is not one word in the legislation that directs Mnuchin to place that $454 billion into the Exchange Stabilization Fund (ESF). But that’s where Mnuchin placed that money.

We know this because the ESF’s financial statement says Mnuchin placed not only the $454 billion into the ESF but he also initially placed the additional $46 billion that he was allocated under the CARES Act to help airlines and businesses important to national security (for a total of $500 billion). …
