Martin Armstrong’s Year End Wrap Up

Click here for Martin Armstrong’s year end wrap up for 2012.

Click here for Martin’s thoughts on gold in 2013.



  1. Greetings, Happy New Year 2013 and thanks for your work GG. If my memory serves right you subscribed to some of Martin’s reports (Gold 2012)? If that is so could you tell us if they turned out to be the way you expected? Marty will probably bring out reports for 2013 and I was considering on buying one of them (the Gold 2013). All the best.

  2. Actually, what Armstrong is saying about 2013? I don’t understand.

  3. I’m getting the feeling that Armstrong is saying that gold is a SELL in the short term. Is anyone else feeling those vibes?

  4. Martin’s reports have a pretty wide range. The charts with volatility months, reversals, can be interesting. Depending on the cost, I may or may not purchase one.

  5. Marty seems “nervous” that gold did not go to support 2012. He said earlier that low for gold in 2012 is more likely than high. Well, we got neither. Go figure. Maybe it means that the correction was not big enough to get players back in hopes of greater returns (big correction means good gains when it comes back up… and it will. Small correction? “Cant be bothered to jump in… I’ll find something else to speculate with”). In short, nobody knows. 2013 is mystery to Martin? I have followed predictions for few years and getting it right is a matter of luck so they provide entertainment. One year is too short time to get something “right”. Hence Martin goes for the long run. Should he manage someone’s money it would not jump in and out of market. It would be buy and hold with “maybe” targeting a sale for almost certain dips in the market (couple times a year). Volatility makes it impossible to trade proper in short term. In and out scenario will chop portfolios half very fast.

    Support dropping down to 1100. I find it hard with this much printed money sloshing around for gold to go much below 1400 as that will increase demand for physical and bring up prices. Printed money is in the hands of big players and they are going to land it on everything including commodities. When too much money chases too few goods you get inflation and once oil doubles in price within a year killing discretionary spending we have next recession (2015?). But on the other hand, the 70’s type of correction in gold price is yet to come. Maybe after that next recession when everyone needs cash and are selling their gold to pay bills.

    What to take from all of this? Cycles can tell you where the money is going to land and with some kind of timespan so you can be there too as it lifts all the boats. When you play with the likes of Soros and Buffet manipulating the short term (but never succeeding in manipulating the long term i.e. changing the course of the cycle) and with hundreds of millions of nervous individuals wondering is it going up or down only big turning points can be expected to be close to correct. What happens in between is fear and greed with chartpoints flying all over the place.

    I’m no trader as I find my business elsewhere and those are my best estimates whats going on. I truly hope World War III is not in the making. If that happens pack your knowhow and move to remote african or amazonian village with all your possessions in a tradable manner (gold fits that bill nicely) and family unit in tow if you have one. I dont want to be in the way of civilization wanting to reset itself. But then again, dont jump the gun. This wonderful age of internet will provide plenty of straws in the wind before that. It takes good amount of preparation to pull off a stunt like WW III.

    Hope the above helps. Everyone invest in happiness and acquiring new skills in 2013. Screw the hopes of fast riches in speculating gold price directions and give it to those who do it daily. Use physical (or paper gold) as a saving tool for now before the bubble tops (2020?).

  6. Martin is saying if X then Y. He’s not predicting.

  7. There are some professional traders that subscribe to Andrew Maguire (AM) who “is an independent bullion trader and a whistleblower. He notified United States regulators that fraud had been committed, manipulating prices in the international gold and silver markets. Maguire and his wife were injured in a hit-and-run accident a day after he was identified as the source of the allegations.” and they’re making a killing trading futures. There are posts on various PM forums talking about this. I dont make money or in anyway connected to AM–just wanted to share with you guys here since we seem to have similar interests beside real friend share! As for AM predicting PM prices for 2013? I dont know as I dont pay $500 for his service.

    Dont get me wrong…Its very tempting but Im not a professional trader; just a regular Joe. Also, WWIII is definitely in the cards (Google retired four star General Wesley Clark on youtube). Know that lame stream media might not call it WWIII either but what do you call the US military being in over 100 countries and currently bombing dozens of different countries with some that didnt even bomb us? If one puts lipstick on a pig, its still a pig isnt it? G’luck to everyone and for the love of God post more people as sharing is caring! LOL
