Don't forget to answer my yesterday's question when you get a chance, thanks.

Bonds reached yet another all-times high today. ( Dec bonds above 132.00!!! )

8 months ago, bonds were around 118.00.

People who invested in bonds around March and April of this year, have been part of one of the most amazing bull market of the board this year.

What are your friends thinking of this huge move Farfel?

NEO-STAGFLATION....

I warned many friends to avoid this Wall Street propagandistic manipulation...in fact, I went down on my knees with some of them and BEGGED THEM not to place any monies in bonds. I categorically predicted the current bearish scenario now unfolding in the bond market; it will only exacerbate as the TORRENT of newly printed money ( printed in the aftermath of the October crash in order to maintain liquidity ) begins to hammer bonds even further over the short-term..

REALISTIC:

I sincerely hope you do not spend very much time congratulating yourself on what you appear to think is a clever way of expressing yourself with your nuisance posts. Because unfortunately, nothing could be further from the truth. Instead of cleverness, they demonstrate the paucity of your thought...the dearth of imagination that is yours.

In fact, in this real world, most of us do think one thing one day and something else the next. This is an inevitable part being human and of seeking truth. Your own obvious enjoyment in wallowing in the human weakness of others is not pleasant to behold. And it is whining to constantly assert, on such and such a day, you said so and so, and...now you say blah, blah, blah...Can you please explain?

It can only be termed a severely limited mind that demonstrates an inability to comprehend and/or accept one of the most fundamental tenents of the human condition: Things change. What one thinks in all sincerity one moment is not always what that same mind thinks in all sincerity another. Without going into too much detail, a myriad of changes are constantly swirling around in each of our own personal environments, and to some extent they cannot help but define and redefine our all-too-human existence. But as Robert de Niro's character in the movie The Deerhunter said to another whining weakling: That was then! This is now!

Why not consider working up some stronger material?

You may recall ( if it was not before your time ) something Walter Pirsig says in Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, The real motorcycle you're working on is the cycle you call yourself.

Think about it!

*******WARNING*******
These observations will be reposted as a reminder to our friend REALISTIC whenever and wherever one of his nuisance posts is observed.

Some reasons to hold, not trade, gold equities:

The trend is your friend.

An opinion from Deutsche Morgan Grenfeld sometime ago stated The dollar may be a safe haven against political instability, but clearly not a haven from financial market instability.

Heavy share volumes in gold equities indicates new investor/trader interest from other than gold bugs.

There may not be a good reason to sell gold equities now other than to suggest that the XAU has overreached itself versus the POG.

What other factors argue for ( or against ) letting profits run?
