Gold Market Speculation - Market Mavens

Spectacular profits are captured in gold market speculation, the key is knowledge of when, where and how. To gain some insight we created a virtual round table of current-day market mavens, to which we added our favourite, the Great Bear of Wall Street; Jesse Livermore, perhaps the great stock market maven of all time.

Never the less, his Wall Street legacy remains intact.

Look at it this way: only two actions are possible in the market. You can buy or you can sell.

The entire Wall Street system is simply a marketing tool used to acquire shares for next to free from the companies Wall Street finances and sell them to the general public at a higher price. The brokerage firms, sales personnel, lawyers, and accountants have to be paid. The process has costs. Without paying for promotion, the share prices could not reach ridiculous levels. Jesse Livermore did not work for a brokerage firm promoting stocks. He was an independent speculator. When he shorted an overpriced share, he didn’t pay for getting it to be overpriced. If he shorted a stock at the top and closed out the short at the bottom, he took 100% of the profit without paying for any promotion costs. This did not escape the attention of the establishment promoters.

Contrary to public record, Jesse Livermore did not die broke nor did he commit suicide. It is best not to let them know you’re eating what they consider to be their lunch. The Art of Speculation during Civil War – Sun Tzu Meets Jesse Livermore, covers the entire privacy issue in full.

Q: I understand that all value is subjective and that in a market economy, the current price will be bid up to the expectation of future price less cost of carry. The same process occurs in reverse when market participants expect the future price to be lower. You use four criteria to measure this and to call the low in the gold market:

  1. a break to the downside in the general securities market

Is all of this part of the Fixed System?

A: Yes. That all value is subjective is a fundamental law of economics. The system is fixed, constant, because economic law and facts are fixed, constant. You can ignore the facts and law, but you will still be subject to them and suffer the results of ignorance. Economic law is just as binding as the law of gravity.
