The Commentary:


“• Despite a lot of noise, the topping formation I spoke about going into the July 4th weekend (and then noted it seemed it could run a few more weeks before putting in a major top) seems to be playing out. As I’ve warned, the longer it stayed out of whack, the worse the downside will be.
• I find it ironic that the king of ultimate bubble makers is the ultimate winner of calling the kettle black. Hey Allen, Ben and Janet aren’t much better but they’ve been only picking up where you left off – shame on you. History will get you right no matter how late in your life you wish to change the past.
• With gold and silver options set to expire on the opening of the CRIMEX (Comex) Monday, you can be sure the “boys” wanted to see gold below $1,300. There were an abnormal # of puts and calls still open this week and what do you know, most look like they shall expire worthless. I continue to like the base-building in gold and silver and the outperformance of the shares versus the metals. This is classic in a new bull leg up.
• For those of us who felt the CFTC was a toothless Regulator, I rest our case on this story. Yeah Doug Casey, we’re all tin-foil hat wearers ( but still have a much better performance record than a man who hasn’t changed his tune in 30  years, but has cried all the way to the bank while so wrong for so long).
• Thanks to two good friends who were both very high up in national law enforcement (one is fully retired while the other has become Chief of Police in a small SC town), I’ve stated the internal belief among many terrorist experts was not a plane attack but a cyberspace 911 style attack. This article is a must read and why I’ve finally gotten around to prepare for a serious impact to our daily lives for more than a day or two.
• I really appreciated all the good wishes for my taking the month of August off. But don’t be concern that I will leave you hanging. If there’s very significant events that warrant commentary, I will post them no matter where I’m at (unless the fish are really biting then it will be a few hours later).” - Peter Grandich,
