How'd I know you were you going to flatter me? That's OK, your humanity shows too. Kitco is the only internet site I've found that not only displays such brilliance, but quite a range of human relations. It's the local Gin Mill of the Nineties. Be well and thanks......

I agree completely with your astute evaluation of today's market.

...and normally I leave the ad hominem stuff to the usual bunch of frustrated kids on K-1 ( whose names we all know ) .

Still, REALISTIC is like some insufferable bully who refuses to quit. Thankfully, he has enough leisure time on his hands to compile all of Puetz's quotes and shadow the guy like a flea on a dog. Maybe if Puetz had equal amounts of leisure time ( or if he even gave a damn ) , he might create a book on Realistic's dumb comments over the past few years.

Realistic is probably upset simply because he fell under Puetz' influence...instead of blaming himself, he blames his former idol.

Ultimately, who on these forums has not made errors in prognostication? We all do it. Except there are those that admit it and those who don't!

The errors do not invalidate the intellect of the poster however. They do however validate the poster's humanity.

Hey Farfel, despite my opinion that you play with people and with K1 in general, you're a master of Market Psychology and have contributed an otherwise missing element. My take on this market has always been that the spins that have been put on this market by CNBC and the like have kept it going as much as the PPT. New Paradigm and all that crap. My take is that when it all comes down, it will be worse than '29 because Joe Sixpack is in the market now and plans on retiring with 2 million dollars. The bubble is gonna burst in more ways than one. Prozac in the water supply, not flouride or perhaps beter yet, lithium. Deep depression follows a manic episode. Any comments?

Let us not take ones opinions as the sole reason to make a negative comment. Everyone IS entitled to an opinion, right or wrong.

Let us leave those we disagree with the THOUGHTS that we are above petty comments.

What is it about REALISTIC and his ilk that they must continually harass this poor fellow?

A guy makes a prediction ( and a good one! ) and, owing to corrupt US government intervention ( Treasury Sec Rubin stepping in to help out all his cronies at Goldman Sachs ) , he is proven wrong. Then, somebody like REALISTIC never leaves the poor guy alone thereafter. Everytime Puetz posts, REALISTIC is on his tail, placing his errors beside his posts. He's as much of an irriating pest as RJ, who continually finds the time to cut and paste out of context comments/errors from posters who do not have the same leisure time nor the interest to look up all his past dumb predictions/errors about Platinum, gold, and every other topic imaginable.

Give credit to Puetz for having the strength of his convictions, at
least. Without last October's government intervention, the market would have corrected to a much lower natural equilibrium point. We would now be in an indisputable bear market in the US.

What did the Clinton gov't succeed in doing with their previous OCt. intervention? They succeeded in turning a bubble into a hyper-bubble.

Why? Because after last Oct., MOST American investors threw every spare dollar they had into the market, convinced that the American government will always intervene and NEVER allow a crash to happen. In other words, they are convinced it's a unqualified NO-LOSE BET today.

Puetz writes well and he provides interesting analysis.

He deserves as much respect ( maybe even more ) as any other poster on K-1.

...and posting occasionally.

I especially get a laugh out of BUGal's America-Love-it-or-Leave-it stuff, RJ's anti-gold rant, and James' maleducated misanthropy. They are some of my favorite posters.
