Gold Daily and Silver Weekly Charts - Credibility Trap

"While we were not watching, conspiracy theory has undergone Orwellian redefinition. A 'conspiracy theory' no longer means an event explained by a conspiracy. Instead, it now means any explanation, or even a fact, that is out of step with the government’s explanation and that of its media pimps...

In other words, as truth becomes uncomfortable for government and its Ministry of Propaganda, truth is redefined as conspiracy theory, by which is meant an absurd and laughable explanation that we should ignore."
Paul Craig Roberts

The Bucket Shop was quiet last Friday and today, as the usual punters were swapping stories and matching dollar bills for side bets.
There was a little spike in the precious metals as it was announced that the EU is preparing capital controls in the event of a Greek Default.
Keep an eye on these developments as I think that the powers that be are increasingly concerned that their fantastic (as in born of fantasy) plans are coming unraveled.
They do not know what they are doing but, of more concern, it is not clear that they even care, as long as they think that they are winning.
Have a pleasant evening.
