The View FromThe Montana Log-Cabin As Markets And Gold Continue To Take A Bath

That was a rip-roaring week! One might be tempted to suggest that equity markets do not know what they want: they were sliding ahead of the Fed’s rate decision in fear of a rate hike. When they got it (a half point rise) they went up. And when the dust settled they went down again. Gold and Bonds did much the same.

Petropavlovsk – even Stevie Wonder can see the writing on this wall

For Petropavlovsk (POG) – as I warned you all on March 4th, here – things go from bad to worse. Its banker and sole purchaser of gold, GazpromBank, is sanctioned by the UK, so the AIM-listed miner cannot generate any revenues, or even pay interest on its debts. Today, the banksters have thus stated that the company is in default and called in the loans.

The View From The Montana Log-Cabin as Gold Slips Back Below $1800

I had hoped that Gold might push through resistance at $1830-50 last week, but it did not – and the price slipped more-or-less all week to close at $1787 per oz, down from $1828 a week ago. The apparent resistance tells me that there is some way to go before there is enough market strength to push on higher to $1900 and beyond.

The View From the Montana Log-Cabin as Gold Switches Back (upwards)

What a week: last weekend Gold had dropped sharply to $1763 and dropped further overnight Sunday/Monday, posting a flash-crash low of $1680 before recovering to around $1730. It all looked so gloomy: gold stocks were struggling, Gold had broken support at around $1775 and the only way appeared to be down. But we finished the week at $1780. Should I be getting out my party hat?

The Million Moron March - the Reddit gang decides to buy Metro Bank on Monday

As I noted yesterday, members of the OneMillionTradeMarch chatroom on Reddit were voting on which stock to buy en masse at 8 AM on Monday to #burntheshorters. Well there aren’t many shorters to burn in the case of the target pick but & if it rockets the big winners will be fat cat bankers but why stop the facts getting in a way of the narrative?

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: If Boris throws the fishermen under a bus, they should burn down the 2nd homes of Andrew Monk & other banksters with copies of the vile Sunday Times

I start with today’s Advent window and then turn to the issue of last minute talks with the EU regarding Brexit. As the grandson of a Bennite campaigner against the EU, I will have no Islington based fucktard lecture me about why I voted to leave. But I discuss the dire warnings in today’s papers about what may lie ahead. I also look at Novacyt (NCYT) and the pointlessness of debating with those whose starting point is not listening to what I have ever said, or reading what I have ever written, and then attacking me for what I have not said!

Gold Still Volatile as the Fed Considers the Jackson Hole it is in

There is an old joke in musical circles in the form of two questions and their answers: what is it we try to learn from the great masters (in composition) and why do we not learn it? The answers are how to get out of a hole, and because the great masters don’t get into one in the first place. And that brings me to Jackson Hole – aptly titled for head of the Federal Reserve, Jerome Powell – where this year’s conference amongst the great and the good of Central Banking is being held virtually this year.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: From 5.30 tonight think of me dear listeners as I undergo sheer torture

I start by explaining that torture and it involves sociology lecturers. I then move onto explaining why Roland "fatty" Cornish is the utterly unacceptable face of crony capitalism. Then moving from the undeserving rich to the needy,  I ask you to give a few quid to Woodlarks HERE. I then look at Frontera (FRR) where the silence is deafening, Amur (AMC), Audioboom (BUST), Angus Energy (ANGS), UK Oil & Gas (UKOG), F*ck Yu (YU.) and finally at Gulf Marine (GMS) which is about to discover that just because it is Christmas that won't stop the banksters being total bastards. There is no season of goodwill for that profession.

Tom Winnifrith Bonus Bearcast on Telit - calling Uzi's next move: this feels like Globo Mk2, here's why

Okay so the Sheriff of AIM has got his man. Uzi/Oozi Katz/Cats has gone "temporarily" (my arse, again) from Telit Communications (TCM). So what happens next? I comment about what was NOT said in today's release, try to second guess Uzi (that is the real one not a bogus ballet dancer/statistician/award winning chef) as to his next move. Then I discuss the underlying business and explain why, to me, it has all the makings of a Globo, not a Quindell,. and why that means that its share price collapsersoonie could be sooner than you think, if banksters HSBC are anywhere close to being on the ball. Enjoy.

Interactive Investor ( iii) - We are not the only bastards in the stockbroker village

iii, aka Interactive Investor, do not seem happy at being called total bastards for changing the terms for holding client money so that clients, that is mug punters like you and I, get more risk and iii gets more money. It says that this is not the objective of what is going on any anyhow other stockbrokers such as Hargreaves Lansdown and the Share Centre are doing the same thing. As such I am happy to clarify " I apologise for saying that iii are total bastards. I meant to say that iii like many other stockbrokers including Hargreaves Lansdown and the Share Centre are total bastards." The iii spokesman is keen that I put this all in context.  iii's comments are in bold, my translation service is below.

The arrogance of City folk who fail to accept there is a problem with China fraud - they are alright Jack

For the thousands of private investors who have seen their pensions raped by China frauds as City advisors have banked vast fees and prospered let us put those words into context.

Wasting More Time with the bastards at Barclays

Having had the run around from my Barclays team in Douglas, Isle of Man as I described on bearcast yesterday, I was advised to go to a Barclays branch in Bristol with two forms of ID to change its records of whom I worked for. As I had a dental appointment in town I walked to the main Barclays branch in central Bristol, at Broadmead, where the bastards then wasted another forty five minutes of my life with sheer incompetence.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: I hate you Barclays, you are bastards

I reflect on how we gym users suffer and on how dealing with Barclays Bank as a customer has made me so angry today. I hate the banksters and make a few unkind comments about the Isle of Man. Then it is onto Feedback (FDBK) and a detailed look at Cyan (CYN) and an awful broker note you can read HERE from Beaufort which I tear apart. I really despair at how bent AIM has become. What is the point of being honest anymore?

There will be a war on Gold

Author Jim Rickards recently did an interview with Sprott in which he opined that there will be a war, by the Central Banksters and big Western Governments on gold. It is fascinating stuff. Over to Sprott:

Lloyds Bank did not blame Brexit for it slashing branches it was the media that lied

On 28th July Lloyds Bank (LLOY) published decent enough interim results, hiked its payout by 13%, and announced that it was closing an additional 200 branches and firing 3000 banksters by the end of 2017. Naturally the BBC led the media in blaming Brexit for the job losses even though that was not what Lloyds stated at all. This is quite remarkable spin and lies from the left wing press and BBC. I see that, in some quarters, Lloyds stands accused of using Brexit as an excuse for cost cutting, that is wholly unfair.

Vindication for Tom Winnifrith: Cenkos to be fined up to £700,000 over Quindell fraud - not enough

Sky News claims to have a source who says that Nomad and broker Cenkos (CNKS) is to be fined £700,000 by the FCA for its lamentable failings in the Quindell (QPP) fraud - Cenkos has now admiited that a probe is underway. Whilst I see this as another moment of vindication for my work in exposing that fraud it is simply not enough. The FCA is telling the City's banksters that turning a blind eye to white collar crime does pay. Its coke and hookers all round if this is the best that the FCA can do.

I will pay for a ticket to watch but I explain why it was always a spoof. It won't happen.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast 12 Feb - Polemos the £1.4m David Lenigas scandal

I start with an analysis of how David Lenigas and his gophers Hamish Harris and Donnie Strang have managed to spunk £1.4 million of the £1.55 million they had to play with at Polemos (PLMO) in three and a bit years and why after today's placing this is still a POS with the toxic Jabba The Hutt odour all around it. Then it is onto LGO Energy (TOAST) and its latest disaster. Then I move onto Leed Resources (LDP), Motive TV (MTV), Golden Saint Resources (GSR) and Canaccord (CF). One suspects the great analyst Saint Kevin of Ashton loved its disastrous numbers today as the banksters had a hot date with karma. This podcast contains strong language. Lenigas is one four letter word but there are many others.

One week to National Irony day in Greece – Restoration of Democracy Celebrated

Greece: Tom Winnifrith: I am not a marxist, and my Euro Loon critic has no heart

I note the attack on me by my colleague Euro loon HERE. Like the heroic ex finance minister of the Hellenic Republic Yanis Varoufakis I regard such an attack from a supporter of the EU and Euro as a “badge of honour.”  The zealots who believe in the Euro concoct facts to support their religion. They show no humanity in the face of undeserved misery. The Euro and EU is a dream for crony failed politicians, big business, useless parasitic bureaucrats and banksters. It is a combination of crony capitalism and socialism which screws ordinary taxpayers and benefits the elite. My analysis and solutions are pure capitalism – my critic (a bankster) is a crony capitalist. I care about the poor. My critic is heartless.

I arrive in Athens – first poverty porn pictures from Greece

Some folk say that it is better to travel than to arrive. I guess they have never travelled on a 5.45 AM Easyjet flight from Gatwick.  But my first sight in Greece was a pure delight. I was wandering from the plane into the terminal behind this stunning Greek goddess wearing a light but long skirt. Suddenly a gust of wind caught her skirt blowing it right up above her waist. Little was left to the imagination. Okay that is not true - I imagined away. Sadly I have no photo of this daughter of Athena. But now in the centre of Athens I bring you the first poverty porn.

Is Alex Tsipras of Greece the Ephialtes of 2015 - at the last gasp a traitor who caves?

Stocks are soaring across Europe on reports that Greek Prime Minister Alex Tsipras has blinked, has caved and surrendered to the banksters. Is his name indeed set to join those on Traitors Wall that starts with Ephialtes and includes most thieves, sorry Greek politicians, of the past forty years? The FT reports this morning that Tsipras has written to the banksters agreeing, essentially, to all their demands in return for more money which can then be used to repay existing debts as they fall due. This, if true, is madness and treachery.

Tom Winnifrith BearCast - Independence day for Greece July 5, Tsipras calls referendum

High drama tonight as Greek PM Alex Tspiras has called a referendum for July 5: should Greece accept the misery of the latest proposals from the banksters or go bust? Events will move rapidly during the next eight days - we may well see the banks shut down as soon as Monday. Already there are long lines outside ATMs in Athens. Is Tsipras right to call a vote? Yes. What should my neighbours in Greece vote? No! They should vote for default and I hope that Tsipras will lead a campaign for such a vote. July 5th could be freedom day, independence day, a glorious day for the Hellenic Republic. It is time for Greece  to tell the EU and the banksters where to stick it.

Tom Winnifrith GreeceCast will traitor Tsipras show spine & tell the banksters to screw themselves this time?

The IMF banksters have made new demands of Greece which are just not acceptable. Will PM Tsipras finally show some spine and tell the banksters where to get off, default and offer hope and a future for a post bankrupt Greece. Or will he once again be a traitor to his nation and his people and cave? This is now getting very interesting. Once again I suggest Tsipras reads the great Lord Byron (HERE) and thinks about what could be for a Greece freed from the debt and the banksters.

Lloyds Banking Group – The Dark side of the Black Horse

Shareprophets has been at the forefront of exposing the AIM cesspit and crony capitalism, but I'm afraid there is another scandal about to break at one of the UK's largest banks, owned in part by the tax payer. If you thought that the reputation of bankers couldn't get much lower, read on. They have clearly learned nothing about the way that we expect them to behave and, despite being involved in scandal after scandal, they still don't seem to be able to determine right from wrong.
