Much like in the case of using controlled burns to reduce the potential for large, out of control forest fires, the banksters have been slowly, quietly trying to control the recent breakouts in gold and silver. Up to this point you have to tip your hat to their ability to minimize the damage to their short portfolios of derivative paper. However, their time is rapidly running out. We are just one strong wind away from turning this controlled burn higher into a full blown, raging inferno. As I posted earlier this week, the fuse is burning. We have yet to go from red hot to white hot but we are getting much closer. Stay long and strong. We are in for a VERY HOT summer.
