Martin Armstrong: Gold To $12,500

Martin Armstrong just wrote a paper on gold titled, "How and When." My response to this article is why?
Why in the world, if you believe that the gold price can go to $5000 and $12,500, as the article says, do you give a damn about the next 90 days?
You must realize that the economic and political damage is already done.
You must realize that the mountain of OTC derivative paper is not going away.
You must realize that all the old legacy assets (broken OTC derivatives) demand to be adjusted at each market turn in order to maintain any semblance that they are serious contracts.
You must realize that this adjustment means adding on new OTC derivatives.
You must realize that this means the mountain of OTC derivative weapons of mass financial destruction can only grow.
You must realize that it is not whether or not QE will continue, it is what it already has done to the Western economies that much higher gold prices will reflect.
You must realize this is not a business problem, but rather a debt problem as it applies to the gold price.
You must realize the monumental change in the Middle East is NOT positive for the West in any manner, shape or form.
You must realize that the change in the Middle East is from some form of government to chaos.
You must realize that the beneficiaries of chaos in the Middle East are Iran and Russia.
You must realize that the main product of the establishment of a no fly zone in Libya is to benefit the Rebels.
You must realize that the rebels are an unknown factor in Libya.
You must realize that a second product of the no fly zone is greater hatred in the Middle East for all things West.
You must realize that the peak production of energy is behind us.
You must realize that the production of energy in chaos will be less than under some form of rule.
You must realize that this combination of monumental Middle East change and peak oil means peak oil is no longer a consideration 10 to 15 years from now, it is now.
You must realize that the Angels (gold prices) are not simple talk but rather a method used by the great market maven, Jesse Livermore.

  1. Well sure, I live on the San Francisco Bay. The San Francisco Bay has enough water to kill (drown) every person on Earth about 100 times. So......??? No big deal. Take a chill pill. Now...a nuclear war...that's a different ball game.

  2. For the last time, the Middle East does not "hate us". They hate our wars and our solitary care for their oil and nothing else. It dates back to when Britain and other western powers decided to slice up their territories and tap their resources with their technology.

    If you think there is nothing positive about resisting dictators and ruthless regimes, then what do you stand for?

  3. 4:09. You forgot one other small reason why they hate is: our support of Israel.

  4. 2:06 dumb statement. How do you compare a radiation catastrophe to water in the ocean.

  5. gold at 12,5000
    hurry up and get here i am sick of seeing it around 1430

  6. 5:44 very true.

  7. Great blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
    A design like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog
