    Off The Cuff: Buy The @%&^ Dip!

    This phrase will be a widow-maker in the next downturn
    by Adam Taggart

    Thursday, May 25, 2017, 9:20 PM

    In this week's Off The Cuff podcast, Chris and Mike "Mish" Shedlock discuss:

    • Fake, Fictitious Markets
      • None of today's prices is justified by the underlying data
    • Death By Drowning
      • Too much liquidity is killing our markets
    • Housing Bubble Trouble?
      • Prices now declining in the San Francisco Bay Area
    • Buy The @%&^ Dip!
      • What will happen when this universal strategy no longer works?

    After last week's brief re-emergence of volatility in the financial markets, the world's various sovereign plunge protection teams have been hard at work flooding liquidity into the system to push prices back up. Losses will not be tolerated!

    And so the "Buy the dip!" crowd is victorious once again. This strategy, mindless as it is, has worked extremely well over the past 6 years — due to an ever-present influx of 'thin air' $billions supplied by the central banks. But for many reasons, that mindless approach can't — and won't — continue forever. And likely not for much longer.

    An important update on the supply of physical gold
    by Chris Martenson

    Friday, September 25, 2015, 7:56 PM

    This report centers on preponderance of fascinating data revealing the extent of the West's massive dis-hoarding of physical gold, for the first time, begins to allow us to start estimating the range of end-dates for the flow to the East.

    Here’s the punchline: there’s an enormous and growing disconnect between the cash and physical markets for gold. This is exactly what we would expect to precede a major market-shaking event based on a physical gold shortage.
