When Lizards Attack.

Postby mSparks » Mon Apr 25, 2011 1:42 pm

OK, some background, there is some evidence that certain discussions lead to attempts by TPTB (lovingly referred to as Lizards*) to subvert the discussion by attacking and bringing down the website in Question.

Therefore, this Thread archives what discussions I was having before these strangely coincidental downtimes occur.

*Lizards - a reference to a psychological disorder caused by generations of inbreeding that leads certain people to believe they are better than everybody else, and that they have blue blood.

->This comes on the same week that the former chief of RBS got a superinjunction that forbids him from being called a "banker" in the press,

I thought the injuction was forbidding him being linked to Vincent Tchenguiz, not quite the same thing.

Back in October 2009, I put out a "gold will be $1,200 by the end of November" (can link the thread on GEI if you want), at the time it was floating around $1,000.

On the 3rd of December 2009 it hit $1,214

21.4% in 2 months. or

100*1.214^(12/2) -100 = 200% annualised.

If you had bought at $1,214 on the 3rd of December 2009, today, at $1,507 you would be up 24%, 17 months later, or

100*1.24^(12/17) - 100 = 16% annualised.

Whats more, with the first margin will have multiplied that many times over, whereas with you second you'd probably of got a margin call and/or taken a nasty loss in early 2010.

Its not where the curve has been, its about being on the right side of it in the future.
Not What. Who.

The important piece to note is not what they were selling,
The important piece is it was the pension funds (aka institutional investors) that were investing in them....

i.e. things do not depend on what people are buying and selling, doesn't matter, could be gold, could be houses, could be massive tech companies, could be tulips.

Things depend on who is buying them, and who is selling them.

As for "being on the right side of the curve".
Markets are inefficient.

This means, say everyone who wants to buy gold would be happy to pay $700 for it
And everyone who wants to sell gold would take $700 for it

"Market inefficiency" means the market can price gold at $1,500.
But you don't want to be a buyer in that market.

Similarly,
The market can also price gold at $300
But you don't want to be a seller in that market.

So I don't even need to wait to show the vid in the OP is bullshit, because it was already proven bullshit before it was posted.
