Stocks and Precious Metals Charts - At the Threshold of Damnation


“When pride comes, then comes disgrace.  But with disgrace comes humility, and with humility comes wisdom.  The humility of the righteous will guide them, but the deceitfulness of the proud will destroy them."

Proverbs 11:2-3

You snakes!  You brood of vipers!  How will you escape being condemned to hell?   For this I have sent you prophets and sages and teachers.  Some of them you will kill and crucify; and others you will flog in your temples, and pursue from town to town.

And so all the righteous blood that has been shed on earth will fall on you, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zechariah son of Berekiah, whom you murdered between the temple and the altar.  Truly I tell you, all this will fall upon this generation.

O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were not willing.  Behold, your house is now yours, but is made desolate."

Matthew 23:33-38

"The gold of the rich is the blood of the poor, flowing through the institutions and estates of the propertied few. "

Leon Bloy, as quoted in Pilgrim of the Absolute

“The stars move still, time runs, the clock will strike, 
The devil will come, and Faustus must be damned.
Mountains and hills, come, come, and fall on me,
And hide me from the heavy wrath of God!”

Christopher Marlowe, The Tragical History of Dr. Faustus

"If there are damned souls in Hell, it is because men blind themselves.”

E.A. Bucchianeri, Faust: My Soul Be Damned for the World, 2010


Stocks traded weakly for much of the day and then dumped off into the lows in the last hour of trading.

The Dollar dropped.

Silver marched in place, while gold took a bounce and held it.

VIX is wallowing as usual. 

The madness serves none but itself.

Why can't we understand this?

I remember you all in my prayers.

Have a pleasant evening.
