    Your thinking on BV makes sense to me, Sharky. Thanks.

      The same thing can be said for stock ownership. If you do not have the authenticated stock certificate in your custody, with yourself as the registered owner of the stock in the company records, then you are really not an owner of the stock.

        I tried these links when this thread first appeared but the links were dead. Got error message 'connection was reset'. I thought, "OK, tech glitch, I'll try later". Here it is 4/1 and it's still dead.

        Am I the only one experiencing this? No one here else seems to be mentioning having the problem.

          they work fine for me - it could be that the length of the url is causing the problem for you by splitting the url across line breaks.

            Hm, thanks for the info. It doesn't seem to be the problem for me though. Same problem if typed in manually. The link TO Zerohedge works fine. But I can't link to the interview from there nor by the direct link. But at least now I know it's a problem from here but not necessarily for others.

            Edit: OK I solved the problem. I just went to the KingWorldNews main page and found the interview from there.

              Have you seen these guys with the long sticks poking all over your yard? They come into my yard about 2-3 AM and knock over the trash cans. They have been doing a pretty good job aerating the lawn. It's not a problem for me because I have the wife stay home with the baby all day and we shoo them out together at night.

                FYI, CEF is regularly audited. Their bullion is held by Scotiabank, which purchased Mocatta, one of the bad, bad, bad guys in the Hunt fiasco (Mocatta insiders were alleged to be instrumental in the illegal rule changes), and Mocatta is an LBMA member but

                1. CEF is physically audited every year

                2. Ted Butler has lain low on Scotiabank for some time now, after being hot on their tails for more than a couple of years.

                3. Ted (and Puplava, Eric King and Dave Morgan, whose letter I got for several years a while back) never had anything bad to say about CEF, at least during the time I listened to them.

                The Sprott fund might also be a good alternative.

                I don't know how US citizens or residents would buy CEF or Sprott's fund.

                And if you want a stock, Silver Standard was the mining company that seemed to see the value in Silver more than any other. They were the ones that AFAIK started the whole idea of accumulating in-ground resources and not producing them while the asset was undervalued. Unlike, for example, PAAS and Hecla and Coeur (basically any Silver producer) that was shoveling it out of the ground at far below its "true" value. (talking half my own book - I bought the PAAS before I realized this, and now I don't want to incur the tax to switch to SSRI.)

                  CEF (and it's all-gold brother, GTU) trade on the American Stock Exchange (AMEX), so are available through ordinary stock brokers to Americans.

                    Holding large amounts of physical gold has risks too. The same way driving through the wrong neighborhood in a Bentley does. People will notice when you are grilling steaks while they are boiling their shoes for dinner. Yeah, yeah, you'll all keep it on the low down right?. Until some jealous girlfriend rats you out and your life becomes like a Guy Ritchie movie.

                      What is the current 'average' premium for physical gold, say coins, relative to spot price? How does this compare to say 1 year ago.

                        Latest gold manipulation scheme story supresses gold price
                        Gold can be manipulated like anything else for short periods of time.

                        Who cares?

                        For every 1000 articles about gold you will find one that sticks to the simple truth.

                        The gold manipulation story is a tried and true distraction from a far more damning story: gold has outperformed stocks and bonds for a decade.

                        Gold has out-performed stocks every year since 2001 when we bought it.


                        Not only has gold outperformed socks but it has done so with less volatility than stocks.
                        Why? Because of interest rates?

                        No. Gold does not always correlate to interest rates.
                        Because the market has been volatile?

                        No. Gold does not always correlate to market volatility.
                        Because the dollar is weakening?

                        No. Sometimes gold correlates to the dollar and at other times it doesn't.
                        Because of inflation?

                        No. Sometimes gold correlates to CPI and at other times it doesn't.
                        Because gold is manipulated by investment banks?

                        No. That can only explain short term price movements.

                        The gold price manipulation story is as old and tired as the gold bubble story.

                        Gold has been a "bubble" in the mainstream business press at least three times since 2006.
                        Recent stories of gold price manipulation and reports of a murder attempt on the life of a supposed gold manipulation scheme whistle blower do serve one purpose: they reinforce the view of 95% of the investing public that gold investing is the realm of crackpots and conspiracy theorists.

                        The simple and elegant truth of gold investing as the perfect hedge for government mismanagement of the economy is lost in the mayhem created by the gold investing community itself. Can this possibly have any other result than reducing the pool of potential retail buyers and thus the price?

                        We have met the enemy and he is us.

                          to my knowledge leegs, the premium varies between 1.5% to 2.5% and remain unchanged since last year.

                            Just a thought : you chart the price of gold against single variables each time, $, CPI, volatility, etc, and find timeslices where the price of gold does not correlate. What that proves is that gold does not correlate 100% with one variable, but it certainly leaves open the possibility that gold does correlate to a combination of two(or more) variables - let's say dollar and volatility. At some point the gold trend due to dollar movement is stronger and overwhelms the trend due to volatility. This looks like a gold price mis-correlation to volatility but it really is not, it's gold being moved _more_ by a strong dollar trend as opposed to a weak volatility trend, and maybe in the opposite direction. I'm sure you've thought things through in this way, any comments ? The problem with describing gold as the "perfect hedge for government mismanagement of the economy" is it makes gold investing very very subjective. I might get bent out of shape by Obamacare, while someone else thinks it's a great idea, either way it's hard to play it as an _investor_.

                            Disclaimer : I'm just using $ and volatility to illustrate my point, and not picking them as the prime reasons for gold movement.

                              For those of us who got to iTulip a little bit later than yourself EJ, this price suppression is a good thing .

                              Your comment though does suggest to me that TPTB might not mind all that much that some odd sounding goldbugs and (in the ordinary view) crackpots have been running around obsessing about gold and gold manipulation since like forever.

                              If you're doing something disreputable, and if you can arrange so that only fools (in the eyes of a "normal" person) are criticizing you, then criticizing you looks pretty foolish.

                                EJ, I can understand your frustration about how conspiracy theories, however legitimate, may turn off the retail segment from Gold.

                                But I think it may be irrelevant. The US Gov't and Wall Street are paper driven. They will do whatever it takes to maintain the paper ponzi machine; including disparaging those that ask for transparency.

                                Yet other governments are acting differently. What do you think about this:


                                ICBC, World Gold Council, Join Hands

                                BEIJING—The World Gold Council has signed an agreement with Industrial & Commercial Bank of China Ltd. to cooperate on developing new gold investment products and programs for the Chinese lender's clients, council chairman Ian Telfer said in an interview.

                                The arrangement with ICBC, China's largest bank by assets, is designed to promote continued strong demand for gold in China at a time when the country's recent rapid growth in gold production seems likely to slow, creating more need for imports, Mr. Telfer said Wednesday.

                                "The demand is out there and we're going to help [ICBC] create vehicles that people will find interesting so that they can accumulate gold," said Mr. Telfer, who is also chairman of Vancouver-based Goldcorp Inc., one of the world's largest gold-mining companies.

                                China's demand for gold has grown an average of 13% annually for the last five years, reaching about 443 metric tons last year, second only to India. About 80% of China's annual gold consumption goes toward making jewelry. The World Gold Council, established by a group of large mining companies to stimulate demand for the metal, wants to increase demand for gold in China for investment purposes.
                                Source: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000...on_Commodities

                                So China is *encouraging* it's people to buy gold. Why is that? My view is that gold will increasingly play a role in international financial settlements/trade in the future. China needs to ramp up it's gold acquisition, and one way is to have its population increase its purchases of gold. This is being done because these small individual purchases do not directly affect the market price - they are not official buyers like the Chinese PBoC is. The Chinese gov't, thru SAFE, is likely still buying gold (at a discount) from their own domestic production - yet again, a method that does not directly affect the markets.

                                What is China's goal here? I'm guessing that one day China will "encourage" its people to sell their gold to the PBoC, at a decent price, then voila, the PBoC's gold reserves skyrocket. China's short term goal is to get as much gold as possible within its borders - one way or the other, and with minimal impact on the markets so as not to push the price up during their acquisition mode. This gold will eventually make it's way into the PBoC's vaults. A mere balance sheet entry later, and China's percentage of gold to forex reserves skyrockets.

                                What is going on in the US? The US gov't belittles gold and those that chase it, and we have shops sprouting up like weeds that will gladly take our "useless" gold.

                                This troubles me. Who is being more strategic long term? The US gov't or the Chinese gov't?
