If you're looking for a cheap way to play one of the largest PROVEN gold mines in the world check out VENGOLD ( VENGF, VEN.T, VEN ) @ $1.50/share US.
The management of this company is outstanding! Vengf now owns 9.4% of LIHIR in Papua, New Guinea. This mine is situated on an island about 300 miles north of Papua, New Guniea. An island of GOLD! To the tune of 42 million ounces PROVEN and with the prospect of millions more on the island! Since the ADR of Lihir is trading in the US at $34/share for 20 ADR shares, VENGF is trading at a DISCOUNT to LIHIR of 20 cents/share. This doesn't even take into account VENGOLD's mining properties next to PROVEN gold mines in Indonesia and Venezuela! The mine is now in FULL production and will produce 220,000 ozs of the precious yellow THIS YEAR and 550,000 ozs.in 1998 at a cost of @$225/oz. Plans call for 1,000,000 ozs/year after year 2000 or earlier if prices rise more quickly than anticipated! This stock is a real gem! And when gold takes off will make this stock an excellent BUY-OUT candidate! Yeh! I own a ton of this one at a buck! But its future is as certain as the morning dawn! Unless of course chaos and flux sink it to the bottom of the sea! In that event we'll all be goners! Check it out for yourself at www.vengold.com! Any of you Aussie goldbugs familiar with VEN of LHR? Let me hear from you guys down under!

It seems that we have been at this juncture before, several times in fact. Just when gold seems about to end its long downward slide, some Central Bank announces dumping a bunch. The shorts get the message an pile on. Why is this time going to be any different? I don't see that things have changed that much. The general stock market is still steaming upwards. The Europeans have until December to get their financial houses in order for the coming of the Euro thereby leaving open the possibility of more Central Bank dishoarding of gold. The dollar is not in a freefall nor are interest rates rising. On the plus side, it would seem that volume is picking up and we have had a nice upmove led by silver. The bottom line, is that we aren't out of the woods yet. I'm starting to move back in on the long end but only slowly and in increments.

On a more technical note--please read carefully BB Fisher's commentary on HM in Gold-Eagle! Those two charts tell me everything I need to know! Gold is definitely going higher and SOON! It's good to hear that Fisher agrees with my prediction last night of $444.44 by Super Bowl Sunday! Favrelous!

Byron: Agree with you on the need to close those gaps in bullion and the XAU:

All: To set the record straight: Unlike Puetz I did not predict an October crash. I did forecast an August peak in the Dow and did argue that an October crash was a real POSSIBILITY.

BTW, with each leg of this bull running about half as long as the previous leg, the next downward lurch should commence around the end of this month. It could be anything from another modest correction to a full fledged crash. My best guess -- a mini crash ( Dow down 1,000 points in a week ) followed by a protracted bear.

Larryn Chinese investors>(Chinese investors) ID#32078:
JTF.. regarding Chinese demand for gold. Back in 1993, the gold action was assisted by Chinese buying because their inflation was 20-30% as the yuan was not considered too highly. Today, they have minimum inflation, about 5-8% and therefore don't have much individual demand ( relatively speaking ) because of the strength of the yuan. I don't think Chinese demand will be much of a factor unless they have a financial problem, such as a national bank failure ( not impossible ) .

The devaluations by Thailand, etc, may cause the Chinese to consider a currency adjustment ( devaluation ) for trade purposes, and then gold will be a definite factor to the average citizen.

The XAU Index did not quite close the opening gap of last Tuesday morning. Came close but no cigar. My best quess is that it will do so tomorrow and hopefully when that is accomplished, we can resume the upward trend. ... The Comex December Futures contract has a larger gap to overcome. Needs to go down about $3.00 and change to close that gap. Maybe it will be one of those quick spikes down and then up..... Re: El Nino: Forcast for the weather in the San Francisco Bay area is for rain Wednesday night and Thursday with SNOW in the Sierra Mountains in the north. Its unusual to have rain this early. The recent pause in the gold shares allows some of the technical indicators to come off of their extreme positions and thus position gold and gold shares to resume the upward move. .... Hope with BART's action, the dust has settled. : )

Russia, Banks Sign Soviet Debt Restructuring Deal

MOSCOW -- Today is a great day, concluding six years' work and concluding the efforts of dozens of highly qualified specialists, Russian First Deputy Prime Minister Anatoly Chubais ( pictured right ) as Russian officials and representatives of the London Club of commercial banks signed a long-awaited agreement on Monday to restructure debts run up to foreign bankers by the former Soviet Union.

The deal involves more than 400 foreign banks holding nearly 30,000 separate Soviet loan agreements -- many the result of banks selling loans to other lenders.

The former Soviet Union accounts for $102.3 billion, including interest arrears, of Russia's $127.4 billion total foreign debt as of this year.

The London Club deal is for approximately $33 billion but varies according to changes in currency exchange rates.

In November last year, Russia made its debut on the Eurobond market with a $1.0 billion issue -- the first time the Russian state issued an international bond since the 1917 Bolshevik revolution

Chile 'not optimistic' on salmon dispute with U.S.

SANTIAGO, Chile ( AP-CP ) - Despite efforts to resolve a trade dispute with the United States over salmon exports, Chile's government believes U.S. sanctions are likely, a cabinet minister said Monday.

Chile has hired the Washington law firm that employs former U.S. presidential candidate Bob Dole to handle the case. Dole toured the Chilean salmon producing region near the southern city of Puerto Montt over the weekend to gather information for the defence of Chilean producers. Dole returned to Santiago on Monday and met with Foreign Minister Jose Miguel Insulza. He was to meet President Eduardo Frei today. Dole refused to discuss the case Monday.

Boston Fed President Minehan weds ex-Fed Corrigan

NEW YORK ( Reuter ) - Federal Reserve Bank of Boston President Cathy Minehan on Sunday wed former New York Fed President Gerald E. Corrigan, currently an investment banker, in a private ceremony in Boston,according to sources close to the Fed. Minehan, 50, and Corrigan, 56, were known on Wall Street and within the Fed to have been romantically involved for a
number of years. Their offices declined to comment on the event.

Minehan, 50, joined the New York Fed in 1968 after receiving a Bachelor of Arts Degree in political sciences from the University of Rochester. She later earned a Master's Degree in Business Administration from New York University. She became Assistant Vice President for data processing at the New York Fed in 1979 after spending a year in Washington as assistant secretary to the Board of Governors.

She became New York Fed Senior Vice President for Funds, Securities and Accounts Groups in 1987. In 1991 Minehan was transferred to the Boston Fed, where she held the position of first vice president. In 1994, she was elected Boston Fed president -- one of the few women within the Fed System to reach such a high position. As president of a Fed district bank, Minehan also is a member of the policy-setting Federal Open Market Committee, on which she votes on a rotating basis. Corrigan, like Minehan, joined the New York Fed in 1968. After a stint at the Fed Board in Washington, Corrigan, an economist, became president of the Minneapolis Fed in 1980, a position he held until 1985.

In a highly unusual move within the Fed System, Corrigan moved to the New York Fed, serving as president from 1985 to July 1993.
After leaving the Fed, Corrigan joined Goldman, Sachs & Co., where he currently serves as managing director. He is widely regarded on Wall Street as one of its most influential investment bankers. At the Fed, Corrigan was known to have shared then-Chairman Paul Volcker's strong anti-inflation views.

Nader opens campaign against Microsoft

WASHINGTON ( Reuter ) - Consumer advocate Ralph Nader Monday denounced what he labeled Microsoft Corp.'s indimidating tactics and said he is opening a campaign to educate the public about the costs of the software company's monopolistic techniques.
Nader said in an interview that he will convene a conference Nov. 13 and 14 in Washington to discuss Microsoft and its Global Strategies.
Nader called Microsoft's efforts at expansion unprecedented. We need to have a coherent appraisal of the monopolistic techniques they're using, he said. John D. Rockefeller wanted to dominate oil, but Microsoft wants it all -- you name it -- cable, media, banking, car dealerships.

Nader said speakers at his conference would include himself, Sun Microsystems CEO Scott McNealy, former Federal Trade Commissioner Christine Varney, Silicon Valley antitrust lawyer Gary Reback and Roberta Katz, who is the general counsel for Netscape Communications Inc. Nader said he had also invited Microsoft CEO William Gates and Vice President Al Gore.

However, Nader said that some people were afraid to attend the conference There's too much fear and intimidation, he said. A lot of people in the business community are afraid to speak out.

Doug Schott: ( Hope I spelled your name right ) Some of those inscrutable orientals have never lost their interest in gold - in particular, the Chinese. The Chinese civiliation, dating back to at least 3000 BC, has been through several inflationary currency debasement disasters ( and numerous wars ) - hence the ingrained interest in gold whenever they can afford it. You are probably aware that the Indian government is now reluctantly setting up gold accounts, because of the importance of gold ( or silver ) to the average Indian. Big Trader's comments -- the accurate ones -- appear to be those of an oriental -- clearly pro-gold. I don't know how the average Indonesian,Philapino ( sp? ) , Malaysian thinks, but as you say they will be changing their minds as soon as they can afford the gold or silver. As I recall the Taiwanese wanted to buy more gold some time ago, but were discouraged by the Americans, I believe. I don't know why the Japanese have so little gold, relative to the big 7. As Big Trader says, the Western world has lost touch of the hard assets, and is interested only in paper money. Eventually the tide will shift back to hard assets

FOCUS--Oil, gold fall back, coffee and soy rise

NEW YORK ( Reuter ) - Oil prices tumbled Monday and gave back much of Friday's sharp gains as military tensions between Iraq and Iran were perceived as less threatening to the Middle East's vast oil supplies.
The sharp retreat in oil was accompanied by a fallbak in gold and silver prices as worries about conflict in the volatile region eased. In other markets, corn and soybean prices rose and coffee prices hit a two-week high.

Precious metals, traditionally a haven for investors in times of international tensions, also fell back on Monday after sharp gains on Friday. Gold for December delivery at the COMEX in New York fell $2.30 an ounce to $334.60 and December silver closed 9.6 cents lower at $5.207 an ounce.

Gold was underpinned by seasonal physical demand for the metal as gifts for the upcoming Dusherra and Diwali harvest festivals in India, a factor which along with a rally in gold mining share prices helped drive gold prices higher the last two weeks.

But analysts were skeptical of any long-term rise for gold. This rally could last another few weeks depending on how much followthrough buying there is from funds, Merrill Lynch analyst Bill O'Neill said. But the higher prices go, the more certain we can be that physical demand in Asia and the Middle East and India will fall away.
Producers should utilize the high prices as wonderful forward selling opportunties, he added.

Today was a really bad day for the Stuff. And a great day for the financials. I was hoping for some more of a rally but today's pull-back was very bad technically for Silver and Crude. As far as knocking George about the stock market crash, get real. I never put much weight into the stock market crashing so I may thought his call was pushing it, but then again I NEVER expected Silver to go up to where it currently is as I was bearish $0.50 ago. The point is no-one can be correct all the time. All you need to do is make more money when you are correct then when you are wrong!!! George C. is clearly in that group. Don't worry, Gold Bulls will have there day. It simply will not be this year. Perhaps 1998 will be better, but I did say that about '97 one full year ago.
For what it is worth I said a couple years ago that EVERY month that the bull market in Gold is delayed, the ultimate high will be $30 higher. I still stand by that statement.

NY's D'Amato under heat of state finance officials

WASHINGTON ( Reuter ) - A group of municipal finance officers from New York has asked Sen. Alfonse D'Amato
R-N.Y., to oppose efforts in Congress they say would weaken legal profection from fraud for securities investors.
We urge you to resist all efforts to interfere with the ability of states to protect their public investors and their citizens, the
104 New York finance officials wrote in an Oct. 3 letter to D'Amato, chairman of the Senate Banking Committee.
The group's letter is related to a bill that will be introduced by two members of his committee Tuesday to ban securities class
actions from migrating to state court.
In many cases, state private rights of action now remain the only method of obtaining recovery for defrauded investors, the
New York finance officials warned.
The New York officials warned the $120 billion in state pension fund assets would have little legal protection under the new
legislation.

Bill Gates says U.S. antitrust probe makes competing tougher

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. ( AP ) - The U.S. Justice Department's antitrust probe into Microsoft's business practices has made it tougher to buy other companies, chief executive Bill Gates acknowledged Monday. But industry experts say the world's biggest maker of personal computer
software continues to use other aggressive tactics against rivals that
provoke scrutiny.

The ongoing federal scrutiny makes it a little tougher, Gates said during a keynote talk to about 6,000 corporate technology executives and analysts at an annual conference sponsored by Gartner Group, a consulting and research company. We have to say, 'Is this something we are going to get through quickly?'Gates said.

For example, Microsoft gives away its Internet Explorer browser, and has
forced Netscape to make it easy for people to download its Navigator
browser without paying. It's a heck of a good deal for users, Gates said.

EU nations 100 per cent behind France in Iran oil deal

LUXEMBOURG ( AP ) - The 15 European Union countries presented a united front Monday in opposing any U.S. interference with a $2 billion
Franco-Iranian natural gas deal. Sir Leon Brittan, the group's trade chief, called on the United States to change legislation that would punish foreign companies doing business with Iran, Libya and Cuba.

The Americans are entitled to disagree with us, Brittan said. What they are not entitled to do is to impose their will.

U.S. law authorizes President Bill Clinton to impose sanctions on any
company that invests more than $40 million in Iran. He could hamper U.S.
bank loans to the company and ban the sale of its products in the United
States.

The French firm acted fully in the framework of the law, said Austria's
foreign minister, Wolfgang Schuessel. We are not meddling in U.S. affairs and we expect no meddling in European affairs.

Novice that I am, it occurred to me that if I was a citizen of Indonesia, Thailand, or Malaysia, with the purchasing power of my local currency melting by the hour, placing what savings I had in precious metals would at least conserve the value of my assets. Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't this precisely what the historical tendencies are for the cultures in the far and mid East?

China has also played a large role over the years in accumulating hard assets versus paper. With more disposabler income now after years of big league economic growth, aren't the Chinese in a position of acquiring huge amounts of gold, too?

With their economy in shambles, the Japanese appear to be buying silver with both hands.

I see a picture coming into focus.... Surely the thin precious metals markets are becoming attractive to the inscrutable folks in the East.

FOCUS-U.S. fears Japan losing interest in opening markets

WASHINGTON ( Reuter ) - U.S. trade officials Monday expressed concern that Japanese enthusiasm for opening its car markets to U.S. competitors is waning and said they would press for more action in talks later this week. U.S. trade negotiators said they would present new ideas on how to achieve more progress on opening up the car and car parts market under a 1995 accord when they meet Japanese officials in San Francisco for three days of talks. This administration is increasingly concerned that Japan's progress in opening its markets has waned, a U.S. trade official
told reporters.

Officials said they were also concerned about the lack of progress in the number of dealerships selling U.S. cars. Since the 1995 agreement, only 132 new dealerships had signed on to sell U.S. cars, while U.S. manufacturers were hoping for at least 200 by the end of 1996.

Stocks get cold shoulder from insiders

NEW YORK ( AP ) - To the discomfiture of many Wall Street analysts, corporate insiders have lately lost a lot of their enthusiasm for stocks.
Indexes that track buying and selling of shares by this key group of
investors stand at some of their lowest levels of recent years. And although insiders' past performance as market-timers has been spotty at times, their increased caution is widely viewed as a significant new question mark overhanging the market outlook.
Insider sentiment is bearish, observes Claude Amadeo at the investment
firm of Bridgewater Associates in Wilton, Conn. While there is not enough history here to make any causality or leading-indication judgments, it is possible that the current fall in insider sentiment is foretelling equity market weakness.

Throughout the first three quarters of 1987, for instance, The Insiders's
indicator stayed neutral, giving no warning at all of the crash that drove the Dow Jones industrial average down 36 per cent in less than two months' time from late August through Oct. 19 of that year.

ACCUMULATION OF THESE STOCKS, BY STRONG/SMART/QUIET MONEY, CONTINUES, UNABATED.

( A word to the 'wise', is sufficient. )

'Lift-Off' is confirmed, and about to be completed. By Wednesday, this week, Oct. 8th: the beginning of the first sustained advance in gold silver, will begin, ( in all probability ) .

What follows, are excerpts, from some of my previous 'posts' and e-mails
to interested investors, and students of economics, markets, & technical-timing research.

10/05/97 - Excerpts, exceptions, excellence, & intuition ; plus, a dedication

This communication is dedicated to a nation of economic illiterates, a nation that means well,
but forgets its heritage. .... a nation that will one day, again : be a light unto the poor & the
oppressed -- from within her borders, from across the seas, from the lands above - up north, and
from regions ... down - to the south .

What follows, are recent excerpts of my contributions ( - my e-mails to investment associates, &
my 'posts' to investment discussion groups/boards- ) ..... to the world of -- 'citizens', savers,
investors, and traders.

( FOOTNOTE: 'citizens' -- is defined as those open-minded, concerned, & inquiring-enough: to
appreciate the need for a world-wide, medium of exchange, as well as - a store of value; that
cannot be manipulated, changed, re-figured, controlled -- whether by nations, politicians,
bankers, or any particular 'blocks of self-interest' . )

I will attempt ... ( - based on my study of the 'masters', plus my own research-experience, plus
my 'intuition' ) ... to include: what we might all consider doing NEXT, if we wish to plan for this
most uncertain, magnificent TIME of opportunity and change.

Friday, 8/22/97 -- IS THE DAM ABOUT TO BREAK ? : : )
...before the real BEAR snares the 'Yuppie-Kingdom's' sacred-cow... ( or is that- ) ... the sacred
Dow... ( -as in - Dow Jones Industrial Average ) . ... U.S. Treasury Bonds have their highest
'NET-SHORT' position among 'Commercials' ( -the 'big-boys' ) ...... - Accelerating interest rates ...
( and the whisper of rising gold prices ) in the U.S., will be the ACHILLE'S HEEL of the U.S.
Stock Market, and the U.S. Economy.

Sunday, 8/24/97 -- THE LEAD SOUTS . : : )
Any considered study and contemplation of the gold & silver mining stocks listed on the New
York Stock Exchange ( -etc. ) , will lead any discerning student of technical timing, to this
conclusion: the precious metals are 'gearing up' for an 'explosion' ... to the upside.

Friday, 9/19/97 -- LIFT-OFF ! : : )
... Here, at the end of summer, and the beginning of fall, 1997 - we are at the beginning of the
first enduring, intermediate bull-market move, in precious metals, since the first quarter of '95,
and again, since the 4th quarter of '95. We are at ... ' Lift-Off '.

Sunday, 9/21/97 -- LIFT-OFF ABORTED ( - ? ) ( - 'eating-crow' ) . : : )
So, pride goeth before 'the fall' -- Jumping the gun, and wishful thinking, do not a bull market
make, not even in gold & silver.

Wednesday, 9/24/97 -- LIFT-OFF RE-INSTATED . : : )
LIFT-OFF back on track/re-instated. ... the 'count-down' for a precious metals bull-market --
'lift-off' -- , has begun.

Thursday, 9/25/97 -- KITCO.COM ... A CALDRON... + SHAKESPEARE . : : )
...what a caldron of....creative dialogue... 'The Lead Scouts' are offering us a golden platter.... of
opportunity in the precious metals investment markets, at this particular time.
My 'Shakespeare' may be a little rusty, but ... here goes:

We at the 'height' ...are ready to decline...
There is a 'tide' in the affairs of men...
Which, taken at the 'flood'...
Leads on to fortune;
Omitted, all the balance of their lives,
Are bound in shallows & in miseries.

On such a full sea are we now a-float.
We must take the 'current' when it serves,
Or lose our ventures.

( The U.S. Stock Market, and probably the ( U.S. ) bond market, are increasingly vulnerable, to a
veritable 'crash' . )


Saturday, 9/27/97 -- THIS..BEST - NOT BE IGNORED . : : )
We... best be about buying/securing/completing - our positions, and commitments -- in selected
precious metals investments ( - including mining stocks, gold funds, coins ) ; and including, for
traders ....call options .... at this particular time.

Saturday, 9/27/97 -- WHEN THE TENT COLLAPSES . : : )
... And gold & silver too... will move up; at least for a year.

Sunday, 10/05/97 -- 'FROM PERSONAL E-MAILS' . : : )
... To sum it up, briefly - a very poweful, even explosive up-move, in the precious metals, is
upon us. Three to six months from now, most of us, will be in total disbelief - at how high, the
gold & silver prices, and selected mining shares, and their related investment markets ...
( - including gold funds ) , will have risen.

This Christmas, 1997, Santa Claus is most likely arriving, with a big bag of gold & silver 'gifts'
.... and his yule-tide deliveries may include at stock market crash, as well.

My 'intuition' -- THE PRESENT POINT OF POWER . : : )

As the daily evidence, by the fruits of our collective labors, and our collective foolishness
unfolds...suggests:

#1. individual long-term investors, fund-managers, & financial planners; are advised to diversify
into selected gold & silver mining companies' stocks, if not done so, already.
#2. Inter-mediate term investors/traders are advised to focus on highly leveraged, &/or low-
priced issues, such as AU, BMG, SSC, AAGIY, & DRFNY.
#3. Short-term traders are advised to consider strategies including 3 to 6 month call options --
on selected mining stocks, & on gold & silver futures, at specific strike prices.

So! George Cole is predicting another fall to $330! Good. That sounds like another buying opportunity to me. Now, I'm struggling with whether to risk putting my last 10% ( of the money I've been averaging into the market ) into SA stocks. All that I read points to these being held down relative to US, Canadian, & world golds by investor sentiment[prejudice?]. But when the Bull runs they will go up more, just as they have in previous post-presidential-election years. I don't know, maybe the time is right for USERX? In the end I think it all boils down to a $US versus Rand play, and I think the Rand has fallen enough.

When I get a chance, I will post you the name of a LA Psychiatrist who just wrote an interesting book on her extrasensory skills -- I think she is telling the truth. She couldn't predict the future, but she could find missing items, and sense events when they happened. She apparently worked in the lab of that UCLA woman researcher who was studying ESP and Kirlian photography in the 70's -- the name also escapes me right now.

She claims among her successes, predicting the date at which De Beers would hit it's record high of R140.25 [Aug 7] and Cape Town losing the Olympic bid Johannesburg Star. Sep97

I now see that she also uses Elliot waves, Fibonacci numbes as well as traditional astro.

GSC concedes!!!! GSC concedes!!!!

Washington ( AP ) - George S. Cole conceded once again
that he was incorrect in calling the Dow's collapse, although
once again couching it in terms that he was premature.

Thousands of investors who sold based on GSC's advice
could only groan as they wrote off more losses to experience, perhaps wishing that talk of GSC's demise as the self-appointed in-house Kitco guru wasn't premature.

Meanwhile, a growing voice ( estimated at 15% ) of discontent could be heard building across the praries, which sounded something like:


He's great
He can anticipate
He's never late,
Irreprobate

He's got nine lives
and nine besides
He rides the waves
and calms the tides

The cat
The cat
The cat
The cat
He's all of that

George - I have the courage of your convictions. I'm not so sure you were wrong about the DOW high in August. The strength in the small caps, IMHO, is an indicator that people and funds are searching for growth companies that might be bear-resistant. I think this is the first step ( of many ) in the search for a safe harbor. Someone mentioned this stock. Check out this chart. http://quote.yahoo.com/quotes?symbols=tsim&detailed=1y

And this is a company that has never made any money and in June '97 had no backlog. But they are now in the Y2K business. What triggered the vertical rise in their stock? The founder gave the keynote speach at a San Fran conference.

JTF @Work -- Sollog>(@Work -- Sollog) ID#57232:
Mike Sheller: What is your opinion of Sollog? My problem with individuals such as this who claim to predict the future, is that:
i ) It is hard to prove a track record from past predictions, unless all predictions are known.
ii ) Predictions given in riddles ( Sollog's earlier predictions ) are subject to interpretation, and cannot be discounted as false when the suspected date comes.
iii ) An individual who could really predict the future would probably speak in riddles because of the commotion he/she would create!

Another question that comes to mind is whether some of the predictions could actually happen, such as Florida leveled by a 200 mile/hour hurricane. A region of Florida would be more likely, because that has happened before. Mt Lassen being associated with the destruction of Los Angeles sounds highly unlikely, given the distance from Mt Lassen to LA. Is Sollog talking about a Mt Mazama-grade eruption? That might take out several states, as it did many thousands of years ago.
Solog does make fascinating reading!

Add the huge consumer debt levels and the skyrocketing bankruptcies and the situation speaks for itself or in legalese Res Ipsa my friends. Recession/deflation then hyperinflation when people lose confidence in the govt to make everything ok ( if that indeed happens given media compliance with Wall St and the Govt ) .

Insiders give stocks the cold shoulder
Copyright © 1997 Nando.net
Copyright © 1997 The Associated Press

NEW YORK ( October 5, 1997 9:46 p.m. EDT http://www.nando.net ) -- To the
discomfiture of many Wall Street analysts, corporate insiders have
lately lost much of their enthusiasm for stocks.

Indexes that track buying and selling of shares by this key group of
investors stand at some of their lowest levels of recent years. And
although insiders' past performance as market-timers has been spotty
at times, their increased caution is widely viewed as a significant new
question mark overhanging the market outlook.

Insider sentiment is bearish, observes Claude Amadeo at the
investment firm of Bridgewater Associates in Wilton, Conn. While
there is not enough history here to make any causality or
leading-indication judgments, it is possible that the current fall in
insider sentiment is foretelling equity market weakness.

The Insiders, a Deerfield Beach, Fla., newsletter, says its insider
indicator currently stands at 29 percent, about as low as it has fallen
at any time in the 1990s.

This number measures the amount of open-market purchases, as a
percentage of all purchases and sales, by corporate insiders --
defined as top executives, directors and large shareholders -- in their
own companies' stock.

Observes Amadeo, Corporate insiders arguably have information
that is not available anywhere else and the most accurate sense of
where their corporations' profits are headed.

Insiders often acquire stock through other channels, such as stock
option plans. So The Insiders deems it bullish when 50 percent or
more of open-market insider activity, which must be publicly disclosed,
is on the buy side. From 30 percent to 50 percent is considered a
neutral range, and below 30 percent a negative sign.

For most of the past six years, The Insiders' index has fluctuated in the
neutral range, with occasional forays into bullish territory. But since
early summer it has dropped steadily from above the top of the neutral
range to just below the bottom of it.

America's most knowledgeable investors are now in a selling mood,
says Norman Fosback, The Insiders's editor.

This might be even more ominous than it sounds if past swings in
insider sentiment had proved to be consistently accurate portents of
the ups and downs of the market. But it hasn't always worked out that
way.

Throughout the first three quarters of 1987, for instance, The Insiders's
indicator stayed neutral, giving no warning at all of the crash that drove
the Dow Jones industrial average down 36 percent in less than two
months' time from late August through Oct. 19 of that year.

Although they missed that call, insiders made up for lost time by
turning into aggressive buyers after the crash, correctly signaling a
buying opportunity for stocks. When the 1990 bear market also
reduced stock prices to bargain levels, insiders went on another
buying spree.

By The Insiders's reckoning, corporate insiders haven't spent any
sustained periods on the bearish end of the spectrum since the early
and mid-1980s -- and thus have managed to reap many of the benefits
of one of the great bull markets in financial history.

But as the mighty market advance was getting started, the insiders
were slow to catch on. The Insiders's indicator was solidly bearish for

Maverick, inflation is all around us. Ignore the bleed'n ( can't use the word I want to in public ) PPI & CPI. Do you think those in power want to see it all evaporate? You think yelling FIRE! in a theatre is bad, wait until INFLATION! is yelled in the stock market. Checked out the price of a new car lately? Or the price of a new house? The government isn't reporting the inflation, nor is the press investigating it as they have long ago prostituted themselves to the Feds. Speed last night posted the old switcheroo Jack in the Box pulled, whereby they made the small milk shake now the medium milk shake. In my area the small drink has simply disappeared - all drink sizes - now you just price three prices - no size. How many of us are taking down the weight, price and date of food stuffs & items we buy so that we can have a memory of what is going on? A bag of chips? Bag is same size, but stuff inside becomes less & less. This scam is so old - yet none of us are protesting. You think this is not relevant, but on any given day, for example, 6% - 10% of Americans eat at MacDonalds ( fatty food that it is ) . A ***REAL*** CPI would focus on what we buy & consume on a daily & weekly basis, not bleed'n personal computers.

Tokyo close. It regained some ground from its weakest of 3,860 per dollar earlier today and after
plunging as much as 9.3 percent on Friday. The central bank spent about $100 million buying the
rupiah at about 3,800 per dollar, traders said. Bank Indonesia couldn't be reached for comments.

Gold will be back to the 320, 325 range within 3-4 days, as the stock
markets rage on. Have patience, gold is poised to lift off, but not for
at least another month.

Showdown over Iraq, U.N. policy shaping up


UNITED NATIONS ( AP ) - A major showdown over new Iraqi sanctions is taking shape in the U.N. Security Council, and the
outcome could have serious consequences for U.S. policy not only in the Middle East but with Russia, France and China as well.

By Saturday, U.N. weapons inspectors must submit to the council a report on whether Iraq has been complying with U.N. orders to
allow the investigators access to sites where Baghdad may be hiding banned weapons.

Last week, the team said the Iraqis blocked inspectors from three sites - two in Baghdad and one north of the city. Chief inspector
Richard Butler has demanded an explanation from Iraq's deputy prime minister, Tariq Aziz.

It was not the first time Iraq has prevented inspectors from sites. But this case is more important than the others because of the potential
for trouble with Russia, China and perhaps the French. All three - along with the United States and Britain - are permanent Security
Council members with veto powers.

The sanctions - in place since Iraq invaded Kuwait in 1990 - are widely unpopular. The French and Russians are anxious to resume
commercial links with Baghdad. China is also ready to do business with the Iraqis.

Arab countries resent that sanctions are usually reserved for wayward Arab regimes - such as Libya and Iraq - when the Americans
refuse to join the council at all in criticizing Israel for its building settlements in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.

Following a standoff with the Iraqis last spring, the United States and Britain submitted a resolution in June asking the council to impose
travel restrictions on Iraqi military and intelligence officers.

The Russians, Chinese and French opposed additional sanctions. Russia's U.N. ambassador, Sergey Lavrov, informed his colleagues he
would veto the Anglo-American resolution.

But President Clinton and Russian President Boris Yeltsin agreed last spring to give Baghdad until the October report to demonstrate
cooperation. The two expressed their ``firm intention'' to impose new sanctions if Baghdad continued its obstructionist ways.

If the U.N. inspectors submit an unfavorable report this week, it would be up to the Clinton Administration and the British to decide
whether to ask the council to consider new measures.

It would then be up to the current council president, Juan Somavia of Chile, to schedule Security Council debate, which could delay a
showdown for several days after the report is submitted.

That could delay a showdown for several more days once the report has been submitted. That would give more time for the USS Nimitz,
a U.S. aircraft carrier, to reach the Gulf.

The Pentagon, in announcing last week that the Nimitz was heading to the region, linked the carrier's presence to recent Iranian airstrikes
against opposition groups operating from bases in Iraq. But the carrier could conceivably be used for punitive action against Baghdad.

Privately, Russian diplomats at the United Nations have been urging moderation, telling reporters that despite lapses, Iraq has genuinely
tried to comply with U.N. orders to dismantle banned weapons systems and offer proof to the inspectors.

The Russians noted that although the Iraqis barred inspectors from three sites, they allowed them access to seven.

THE PACK IS BACK!! AND SO IS GOLD! Crippled and maimed though it may bebe ( sorry Don ) , in the end the green and gold will triumph! It won't be easy and it won't always be pretty but ultimately after much heartbreak and trial the green and gold like gold itself will prove to the world their true worth and in-VINCE-ability. Gold at $444.44 by Super Bowl Sunday! ( As Brett Favre would say, Just bet against me and you'll lose! )
Or as St. Vince once said, It's not how you get knocked down but how you get back up that counts!

SOON -
10/05/97 - Excerpts, exceptions, excellence, & intuition ; plus, a
dedication

{from various e-mails to associates, & from kitco.com posts; - a
subject: .. SOON }

This communication is dedicated to a nation of economic illiterates, a
nation that means well,
but forgets its heritage. .... a nation that will one day, again : be a
light unto the poor & the
oppressed -- from within her borders, from across the seas, from the
lands above - up north, and
from regions ... down - to the south .

What follows, are recent excerpts of my contributions ( - my e-mails to
investment associates, &
my 'posts' to investment discussion groups/boards- ) ..... to the world
of -- 'citizens', savers,
investors, and traders.

( FOOTNOTE: 'citizens' -- is defined as those open-minded, concerned, &
inquiring-enough: to
appreciate the need for a world-wide, medium of exchange, as well as - a
store of value; that
cannot be manipulated, changed, re-figured, controlled -- whether by
nations, politicians,
bankers, or any particular 'blocks of self-interest' . )

I will attempt ... ( - based on my study of the 'masters', plus my own
research-experience, plus
my 'intuition' ) ... to include: what we might all consider doing NEXT,
if we wish to plan for this
most uncertain, magnificent TIME of opportunity and change.

Friday, 8/22/97 -- IS THE DAM ABOUT TO BREAK ? : : )
...before the real BEAR snares the 'Yuppie-Kingdom's' sacred-cow... ( or
is that- ) ... the sacred
Dow... ( -as in - Dow Jones Industrial Average ) . ... U.S. Treasury Bonds
have their highest
'NET-SHORT' position among 'Commercials' ( -the 'big-boys' ) ...... -
Accelerating interest rates ...
( and the whisper of rising gold prices ) in the U.S., will be the
ACHILLE'S HEEL of the U.S.
Stock Market, and the U.S. Economy.

Sunday, 8/24/97 -- THE LEAD SOUTS . : : )
Any considered study and contemplation of the gold & silver mining
stocks listed on the New
York Stock Exchange ( -etc. ) , will lead any discerning student of
technical timing, to this
conclusion: the precious metals are 'gearing up' for an 'explosion' ...
to the upside.

Friday, 9/19/97 -- LIFT-OFF ! : : )
... Here, at the end of summer, and the beginning of fall, 1997 - we are
at the beginning of the
first enduring, intermediate bull-market move, in precious metals, since
the first quarter of '95,
and again, since the 4th quarter of '95. We are at ... ' Lift-Off '.

Sunday, 9/21/97 -- LIFT-OFF ABORTED ( - ? ) ( - 'eating-crow' ) . : : )
So, pride goeth before 'the fall' -- Jumping the gun, and wishful
thinking, do not a bull market
make, not even in gold & silver.

Wednesday, 9/24/97 -- LIFT-OFF RE-INSTATED . : : )
LIFT-OFF back on track/re-instated. ... the 'count-down' for a precious
metals bull-market --
'lift-off' -- , has begun.

Thursday, 9/25/97 -- KITCO.COM ... A CALDRON... + SHAKESPEARE . : : )
...what a caldron of....creative dialogue... 'The Lead Scouts' are
offering us a golden platter.... of
opportunity in the precious metals investment markets, at this particular
time.
My 'Shakespeare' may be a little rusty, but ... here goes:

We at the 'height' ...are ready to decline...
There is a 'tide' in the affairs of men...
Which, taken at the 'flood'...
Leads on to fortune;
Omitted, all the balance of their lives,
Are bound in shallows & in miseries.

On such a full sea are we now a-float.
We must take the 'current' when it serves,
Or lose our ventures.

( The U.S. Stock Market, and probably the ( U.S. ) bond market, are
increasingly vulnerable, to a
veritable 'crash' . )


Saturday, 9/27/97 -- THIS..BEST - NOT BE IGNORED . : : )
We... best be about buying/securing/completing - our positions, and
commitments -- in selected
precious metals investments ( - including mining stocks, gold funds,
coins ) ; and including, for
traders ....call options .... at this particular time.

Saturday, 9/27/97 -- WHEN THE TENT COLLAPSES . : : )
... And gold & silver too... will move up; at least for a year.

Sunday, 10/05/97 -- 'FROM PERSONAL E-MAILS' . : : )
... To sum it up, briefly - a very poweful, even explosive up-move, in
the precious metals, is
upon us. Three to six months from now, most of us, will be in total
disbelief - at how high, the
gold & silver prices, and selected mining shares, and their related
investment markets ...
( - including gold funds ) , will have risen.

This Christmas, 1997, Santa Claus is most likely arriving, with a big
bag of gold & silver 'gifts'
.... and his yule-tide deliveries may include at stock market crash, as
well.

My 'intuition' -- THE PRESENT POINT OF POWER . : : )

As the daily evidence, by the fruits of our collective labors, and our
collective foolishness
unfolds...suggests:
#1. individual long-term investors, fund-managers, & financial planners;
are advised to diversify
into selected gold & silver mining companies' stocks, if not done so,
already.
#2. Inter-mediate term investors/traders are advised to focussed on
highly leveraged, &/or low-
priced issues, such as AU, BMG, SSC, AAGIY, & DRFNY.
#3. Short-term traders are advised to consider strategies including 3 to
6 month call options --
on selected mining stocks, & on gold & silver futures, at specific strike
prices.

For additional information, you are invited to contact me.
