From a Sarajevo War Survivor:
Experiencing horrible things that can happen in a war - death of parents and
friends, hunger and malnutrition, endless freezing cold, fear, sniper attacks.
1. Stockpiling helps. but you never no how long trouble will last, so locate
near renewable food sources.
2. Living near a well with a manual pump is like being in Eden.
3. After awhile, even gold can lose its luster. But there is no luxury in war
quite like toilet paper. Its surplus value is greater than gold's.
4. If you had to go without one utility, lose electricity - it's the easiest to
do without (unless you're in a very nice climate with no need for heat.)
5. Canned foods are awesome, especially if their contents are tasty without
heating. One of the best things to stockpile is canned gravy - it makes a lot of
the dry unappetizing things you find to eat in war somewhat edible. Only needs
enough heat to "warm", not to cook. It's cheap too, especially if you buy it in
6. Bring some books - escapist ones like romance or mysteries become more
valuable as the war continues. Sure, it's great to have a lot of survival
guides, but you'll figure most of that out on your own anyway - trust me, you'll
have a lot of time on your hands.
7. The feeling that you're human can fade pretty fast. I can't tell you how many
people I knew who would have traded a much needed meal for just a little bit of
toothpaste, rouge, soap or cologne. Not much point in fighting if you have to
lose your humanity. These things are morale-builders like nothing else.
8. Slow burning candles and matches, matches, matches

Friday Futures

Apparently the excuse is "job numbers"
A huge drop in futures, while most people cant trade.
HBB loves these 3 days weekends to rape the public

Having more puts than since 2008, Monday ought to be good

Well....Globex trading on Good Friday, and a Good Friday it is!   Sure glad all my puts stayed put.   LOL, gray is the target box I placed on Tuesday, It is semi-arbitrary, using the Magenta line and the Bernoulli 100,133,4/3 to the 4/3 power catch line, and the 177

Fortunately, I kept all the puts as HBB sucked the value out of them on Vix.

TF metals Honorific Mention

This is from TF Metals
Visit and Stack

I think this site has bridged so many divides, brought conflicting opinions together in a state of agreement. This is a community brought together through many evolutions, comments on zerohedge, the library watchtower, this platform we recognize now as home and soon the new format.

I think of this place as somewhere I come to imbibe wisdom, to seek out alternative views and to challenge my mind to understand the diversity of opinion. There are few opinions here that I find abhorrent, many I don't agree with and plenty that make me reassess my beliefs. It is challenging to post here, sometimes the knowledge on offer is so far removed from everyday coherence that I spend days thinking about what I have read. Sometimes the simplest of comments leave me in wonder at the things I pass by, take for granted, never consider or just flatly didn't have a clue about. This knowledge shared for free is a blessing, we represent the world here, border less, anonymous, we say what we feel and we pull no punches. It is refreshing in an era of moronic adherence to social norms, political correctness and ignorance. Take a moment to pat yourself on the back for understanding truth, history, diversity and decency. Feels good right? Feels good because however the price falls, whatever the criminals throw down at us, however many gauntlets are wafted in our faces. WE ARE ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE TRADE!

At times like these we are a sorry bunch, crying into our beer, blaming, pleading and wailing for the injustices served upon us to be avenged. crying

I cry no longer, I stopped caring about prices some time ago. I stopped caring for money, possessions, status or standing. We are far beyond the days that a ralph lauren shirt meant something or a BMW dictated your social standing.

We are in the end game. Look around, what do you see? This is fucked, that is fucked, everyone is blaming everyone else and we are walking into a shitstorm of epic proportions, I am stacking for war, we will see it soon, not a pissy little scuffle, not a grab for resources but a full on hate thy neighbour, global rage fest that will engulf all that dare to poke their heads above the parapet. History dictates it and present situations confirm it. There is no going back now.

I started stacking gold.

I then bought some silver.

I filled my food store.

I traded some silver for gym equipment, I'm stacking fitness.

I stopped stacking my beer belly.

I have been stacking knowledge for a lifetime but I am now in overdrive.

The time is here, the debate over TSHTF is over, it hit. Picture a bunch of folks in slow motion grimacing as it arcs in a fine spray towards them, waiting for the splatter on their brows. This is where we are.

I believe there will come a time soon that I will stitch some gold into my clothing, that I will hide from tyranny, that I will cower in fear and will be afraid for my ability to protect my children from the onslaught of anger and violence. Look around, what exactly is stable? Tell me one positive about the present day?

We are walking into the valley, preps will help, fitness will help, food will help but luck will be the decider. None of us can foresee what this way comes. Just know this, it will hurt, it will cost, it is here.

Let's not forget why we are here, let's not get wrapped up in daily moping over some chart that says your insurance is not as good as yesterday. Trust in yourself, it got you this far.

There is a man, he coined a phrase I believe to be one that will be remembered historically, he put his balls on the line and offered his opinion, knowledge, time and money to tell us this one thing.

' The end of the Keynesian experiment is upon us, PREPARE ACCORDINGLY'

Dabama Da Bernank

exartizo's picture

Obama: The market tanked today Ben.

Bernanke: Yes. In line with our expectations.

Obama: Yeah I know. How far can we let it drop to see if it will stabilize?

Bernanke: We project that it could drop all the way back to 10,000 if we don’t intervene. It is possible that sub 10,000 could come around shortly thereafter.

Obama: How did we get into this mess?

Bernanke: On the bright side. We did pump up the Dow for the past few months in anticipation of this plan.

Obama: When did we start that again?

Bernanke: Well, after we decided to do “Operation Training Wheels Two” the Dow was at around 11,700.

Obama: So we’ve inflated a roughly 1300 point cushion?

Bernanke: Approximately.

Obama: Is the market going to continue dropping through the election?

Bernanke: No. If the S&P hits 1030 I’ll do another round of QE.

Obama: That’s having less and less of an effect isn’t it?

Bernanke: Yes. Unfortunatley, it is.

Obama: How much time are we buying here before meltdown?

Bernanke: Another year, tops.

Obama: We’re just flying by the seat of our pants here Ben aren’t we?

Bernanke: Yes Mr. President. I’m afraid we are.

Bernanke: Are you sure you really want to be President again this year?

Obama: Look Ben, just try not to give me any more QE until AFTER November if you can, huh? I've been taking a lot of heat for $4 gas prices you know.

Bernanke: I'm not sure that will be possible Mr. President.

Stacking Gold, Maybe Stack More at better value?

Stacking and Russell Puts

All the gold in the world that is mined, divided by all the people in the world, allows 23 grams per person.    Got gold?

I do expect it to go down, maybe 1400 as a target

When gold is at 3000 or 5000 will you really care whether you bought it at 1650 or 1400?   Or 1900 for that matter.

Took  a beating on Russell puts yesterday and into today, held.
Bought more at the close.    Time will tell.

Peak Human

Saw on a website, linked.    Did not verify their assumptions.

Seasonal Chart link

All HT custom indicators say short

Use at your own risk, what you taking advice from a solar energy guy?   shame on you!  LOL

Ask you trusted broker at Goldman or Morgan, ask em if they got a muppet special for you today.

Nailed it.

This I wrote and posted Sunday......

Bucky is bouncing on support, which is also a big 38 Fibonacci

If Bucky bounces up and away, it will be strong and fast.

And boy did Bucky jump up strong and fast, whiplash action
Great for my puts and Euro shorts, although puts are just back to even which is annoying.

I think ES falls to 1340 zone based on yolk lore.

Check the Euro chart, emailed a buddy, aka "it is obvious it is going to drop" at 1:30 EST

Short Week - Good Friday

Keep in Mind, Short week, Long Weekend.    HBB loves those long weekends to make big moves on the Globex futures and foreign markets, and then to catch people off guard on the next trading day.   

Watch GDX if you like the Gold Miners, it is bouncing up off strong support. 

ES poking the blimp, and Bucky update
