Latest Release from Martin Armstrong dated June 14, 2012

Click here for Martin Armstrong’s latest release entitled Why Should You Buy Gold dated June 14, 2012 (40 pages).



  1. I hesitate somewhat in writing this. On one hand, there’s much about what Armstrong writes that I agree with (e.g governments desire for move into electronic money). Also, it does appear he just might of been unjustly persecuted by the government and spent years in prison on account on that.
    However a weak argument needs to be called out when ever / where ever it crops up, and this submission is filled with that.

    Martin is quick to denounce those who claim the PM markets are being manipulated (insinuating they’re “conspiracy buffs” with all the negative connotations that the word conspiracy invokes). However he fails to explain how an immense amount of PM product can just be dumped on the market at illiquid times. When that occurs it is quite apparent that the entity selling has no regard for value and very likely doesn’t possess anywhere near that amount of physical being sold (who could, the amounts being so huge). Only a sovereign (or agent for sovereign) is in that league where they can roll over the entire market to such a degree with naked shorting.

    So Martin, your rant doesn’t hold water. And rant it was.
    He writes lines such as … “This argument is just nuts and so insane it is hard to grasp who even makes up this shit” . Classy Martin. Very professional.
    Are we supposed to accept lines such as this as a reasoned argument. You’ll have to do much,much better to command respect.

    Clean up your arguments, forego breaking into outright rants and for christ sakes man, proof read your articles for mistakes (there were numerous in this piece). Like Robert Prechter wlth his Elliot wave models, you seem wedded to your divination of cycles. Events over the past few years appear to refute that approach and instead everything nowdays reeks of the hand of the central planners (i.e. those who are behind the TBTF banks). There’s strong evidence that markets have been circumvented and no longer follow “natural’ rhythms.

    You might of been hot shit 30 years ago, but that was then and this is now.

    P.S. and please Martin, spare us anymore Roman coinage history, You’ve milked that meme for all it’s worth.

  2. Hi gg-

    Martin advertises his metals prediction for 2012? Have you purchased it and is it worth the $ ?

  3. Martin is saying that gold markets are open to the same manipulations as any futures market. I agree with that statement. In gg’s opinion, it can also be “managed” like a fiat currency is managed for political and economical gain.

    In this paper, I don’t know that Martin really addresses the dangers of naked short selling on markets. And since the government has taken to bailing out banks (in the name of creating liquidity), it is possible that government money is allowing banks/investment houses to cover losses of naked sells and derivative bets, which allows losers to be losers without as much consequence. In that sense, not every trade has a true loser and winner. (And gg will not even mention of position of servers in NYC.)

    GG would appreciate it if commentators would not use personal attacks. Argue your point with facts. You have made some good points in your comment, stick to that.

    On another point, this debt crisis is not done yet, we don’t know who is “right” yet.

  4. Yes, I have it. Since 2012 is halfway done, I would wait for the 2013 report. I used it to plan my gold purchases throughout 2012 (which I have all but completed). I will use a 2013 report to do the same thing.

  5. While the dumping of contracts in to illiquid times can be seen as suspicious, and in some circumstances it probably is (traders running stops etc), one must bare in mind that the paper markets aren’t the only market trading metals. There’s also the OTC markets, price is kept in lock step via arbitrage. What can seem completely random when looking at the paper markets is i’m sure at least most of the time arbitration of the OTC market.

  6. As for it being after hours? The OTC markets are 24 hour markets.

  7. How can some entity sell a years production of silver in an hour or two?
    Why do we see Gold AND Silver sell off in lock step (remember, silver is 50% an industrial metal. Why would it suddenly get dumped simultaneously and to the same degree as Gold in the futures market)?

    Look, if some of you all wish to believe this is random market movements, a hedge fund or two scrambling, or some such thing … that’s your prerogative but then you might as well believe in the tooth fairy, santa claus and the world being flat. My feeling is that you can’t handle the truth because it opens up ideas about just how manipulated our financial system is that your mind just can’t handle in one shot. So yeah, block it out and remain in your comfort zone. Whatever gets you thru the night.

    Did you read Martin Armstrong report? He wasn’t even aware that the proposed PAGE exchange never got implemented (and it got nixed because a significant money interest based in New York scuttled it …. not by it’s original primary backers or any of its far east principals).

    Martin Armstrong has shown ignorance and cluelessness in regards to the PM markets. He hasn’t even addressed the upcoming SWIFT sanctions and the ramifications, or the reports of Gold leaving the London market by the boat loads( presumably headed to the far east seeing as it is being re-refined in metric bars from the original imperial standard bars). He has not addressed the Interest rate swaps sold by JPM and Morgan Stanley and how they support Treasuries rather than the presumption of it being foreign buying/”safe haven” flows. Hello, Martin … Morgan Standley selling 8 TRILLION in interest rate swaps in a few months …. that’s not important and that doesn’t play a major part in propping up U.S. gov bonds ????
