TRYING TO "Play the GSR" -- HORRIBLE IDEA

    So now we've established goldcollector "pumps" gold and Deadline "pumps" (Or is it "pimps"?) silver. What else does everybody already know that doesn't need repeating? Oh yeah, I think they're BOTH headed for a fall, because neither of those gentlemen know Jack Squat about what makes metals markets move over the longer term.

    They both fervently believe they DO know, but neither one does.

    Then why don't you just move along Kurt. The more you spew the fact that you think "you know it all" the worse you look.

    Avatars are irrelevant. Ad hominem attacks don't bother me its just an indicator of the stone throwers mental state. Your persistent negative reply's in this thread only further support the fact that you have now become a middle aged man with an over inflated ego coupled with a massive inferiority complex. True freedom comes when a man conquers himself...

    No, I'm a middle aged man who bought lots of gold below $300 an ounce and sold most it for $1900 an ounce and who bought lots of silver around $5-6 and got $40. How are YOU doing?

    I know buffoons like sakata and you and a few other bores on here like this subforum because no one else even wants to make room for clowns like you, and you feel like you're owed ownership of this one to run your pump and dump scams, but I refuse to play.

    Oh, and @Deadline? The worse I look TO YOU, and those like you, the more I like it. The people who can actually think and reason will see the light.

    Ah, distraction. What I said still stands. Whether you made money or not may be true, but it is irrelevant. The real question is why do you continue to drive home your views when you have clearly spoken your mind. You react as a child does when someone has a view contrary to yours.

    Because people come, and once they've read what you and sakata have to say, people go. A constantly new audience constantly needs to be reminded you have no idea of which YOU IN PARTICULAR speak.

    Reminder: I am the one agreeing with this thread's title, but because of things other than JUST the GSR, which never has been relevant and never will be. All the GSR does is indicate which asset is even more overhyped than the other.

    The GSR lost all relevance in about 1971 or so. Not that it's a true indicator, but I find the ratio between gold and platinum (and more recently, palladium) to be fun to watch. At any rate, all three ratios argue that gold is overpriced.

    So Kurt does believe in buying and selling gold and silver the same way all of us want to. Hummmmm.......

    Ancient history, David. I don't see any way to make ANYTHING worth worrying about at current levels. There is NO important inflation at work, and we may be facing de facto DEFLATION very soon if the WalMart vs. Amazon price wars don't abate.

    Saying that the GSR will never be 55 again or that silver will never be higher in spot price than gold ( yeah I actually had that argument with a silv-idiot once ) is not even close to the same thing as predicting the powerball winners. Come on even you can come up with a more intellectual argument than comparing the 2. but then again, you are the one with the brilliant ( when I was in 1st grade ) pole smoker putdown.

    Kurt I have never "pumped" gold. I just said last night it will be a long long long long time before Gold hits $2000. Some pumping.

    It's actually impossible to fail playing the ratio as long as you don't care what medal you might get "stuck" with.

    No its not, not even close to impossible to end up burning a lot of money

    If I buy 1000 ounces of silver today and say I will trade it only when the ratio is 40, I can not lose playing the ratio, worst case I never make a trade and I have 1000 ounces of silver.

    And if it's worth less than when you bought it that's losing. Really if you buy it with the intention of making a trade and never make the trade that's losing as well

    In both those cases it would only be losing if you set a timeframe and failed to make the trade within it.
    The price of both metals only matters on the day you make the trade. For me I don't care what metal I get stuck with if the ratio never hits its target(s) again.

    I've made two trades in my life about 7-8 years ago.....I've been sitting on 10 ounces of gold that I have no personal attachment to and about 500 ounces of silver that just doesn't fit my collection. If the ratio hits 100 I trade the gold, if the ratio hits 40 I trade the silver and if it never hits either target I keep the gold and silver.

    This is so simple and I really don't understand why some people don't see it. I guess they just don't like to hear anything which goes against their preconceived ideas.

    Now THAT is not a bad strategy at all. Well done. It just so happens I made my sales in 2011, right when "everybody" thought they were going "to the moon".
