(((One of the key points is that we won't know whether or not there
will be a meltdown for a month or more -- which is a long period of
time for the markets to fret. Dr. Faber also thinks that the Yen is
going to weaken as a result of the disaster, though not immediately;
the disaster will be inflationary for Japan. QE3 and beyond is assured
if the market keeps falling even though more QE is really a bad thing
(the market ought to be allowed to find its own level, I think.))))

(((Commentary: hopefully everyone had previously started building
cash reserves in order to capitalize on market weakness in the future.
It might -- likely -- be wise to work on building more cash reserves
now rather than immediately buying the "dip". I view this situation
as one where my initial reaction and desire is 180 degrees wrong.
Right now I feel no urgency to sell stocks and am thinking of waiting
patiently to buy later. That buying opportunity will come after
complacence turns to fear and loathing.

Knowing that QE3 is likely after a crushing stock market correction
we should be vigilant about opportunities to buy gold and silver.
Looking at the charts, both are due for a correction as speculators
exit the trade. A GLD fall to the 65 week moving average would be
appropriate for emptying the "weak hands":,uu[h,a]wacayiay[df][pc4...

Likewise with the S&P 500:,uu[h,a]wacayiay[df][pc4...

Look at On Balance Volume for GDX -- the gold miner stocks have been
indicating a correction for months:,uu[h,a]wacayiay[df][pc4...

CEF looks like it needs a major correction to the overbought

In fact, we should be looking at opportunities beyond just gold
and silver, and be building lists of things we would like to own.

(((This just rips Obama's leadership style, and you know what? I
think he is pretty useless so it doesn't matter much if he is
off playing golf or working on sports bets. He has his four years
then we vote him out. I no longer care what he says about anything.
If his face appears on TV, I immediately change the channel...
just like I did with Bush 2 -- because I can't stand being lied
to and conned. It's so obvious he campaigned on false promises
and I can't imagine what he'll come up with to try to get
re-elected :-) But it does not matter anymore. )))
