September 22, 2015 | Algorithms (and ‘Naked’ Shorts) Pound Silver!

Donald B. Swenson: Born January 24, 1943, Roseau, Minnesota. Graduated H.S. 1961, Moorhead High, Minnesota. Graduated College 1968, Moorhead State University, Minnesota. Designated member of Appraisal Institute (MAI), 1974. Employed with Western Life Insurance Company, 1968 – 71; Iowa Securities Company, 1971 – 73; American Appraisal Company, 1974 – 81. Part-time teacher/valuation consultant/bartender, 1979 – 2008 (taught workshops at Waukesha County Technical Institute, Wi. and Madison Area Technical College, Wi.). Retired 2008 (part time teacher/blogger), AZ. Self educated economist/philosopher/theologian:

Our cyber money is ideal for ‘algorithms’ and for controlling a price like Silver. A single computer with trading strategies can monitor and control any price if so desired. Silver is down some 7% this year and some 3.6% today. The cyber price can now be controlled or bracketed by a coded ‘algorithm’. The ESF (Exchange Stabilization Fund), under the leadership of our Treasury Department, is the likely culprit. Economic regulations and laws do not apply to this hidden department within our Treasury. This entity started back in 1934 with some $3 billion and a duty to stabilize our ‘dollar’ so that fiat money can work in the greater marketplace. It would be interesting to see some ‘light’ on this entity (now hidden within the Department of Treasury in Washington D.C.).

Exchange Stabilization Fund

The Exchange Stabilization Fund is an emergency reserve fund of the United States Treasury Department, normally used for foreign exchange intervention. This arrangement allows the US government to influence currency exchange rates without affecting domestic money supply. Reference: does spell out the issues and I would agree with the philosophy presented. Executing a strategy of ‘Naked Shorts’ in our electronic Futures Markets (with no delivery after the sale) creates an imaginary ‘increase’ in Supply (within the computer market) which then gets factored into the ‘spot price’ of Silver (and/or gold). Result: price is controlled and bracketed!

Everyone from U.S. Senators to prominent hedge fund managers say that criminal naked short sellers had a hand in the financial collapse of 2008, but the regulators aren’t listening. Not a single criminal has been prosecuted. Indeed, the regulators continue to allow the miscreants to manipulate the markets — not just the stock markets, but also the markets for corporate bonds, derivatives, U.S. Treasuries, and all manner of commodities – even when the regulators are provided with indisputable evidence of a massive crime in progress. They could easily fix the flaws in the settlement system that allow much of the manipulation to occur, but they refrain from doing so either because they are too captured by the miscreants or too cowed by the possible consequences of throwing the lights on what may be an enormous confidence game. (so says:

So I am inclined to say that it is hopeless. Everyone loves an optimist – but, yes, it is hopeless. We are like the audience in one of those cheesy horror flicks – yell and scream all you like, but the dumb blonde is still going to walk into that room and get hacked to pieces. Except that it is not a movie. It is real. And it’s not just the dumb blonde who is going to get slaughtered. It is all of us. It is our economy. It is our standard of living. It is our financial system – the lifeblood of the nation. (so says:

What our deceived Hard Money commentators do not want to understand (it seems) is the ‘nature’ of our electronic markets today and the ‘nature’ of robots and algorithms in controlling and manipulating our markets. Why the silence within the Hard Money Camp? My sense is that these commentators do not understand the change which has occurred within all our markets. Prices are no longer created by human beings in an Open Outcry system. Today, all our prices are created via computer trading strategies and ‘algorithms’ are the tool which manipulates all our markets. The writers on the Deep Capture site do seem to comprehend what is happening. Our Hard Money people are mostly deceived and unaware! Enjoy! I am:

P.S. Who could shed some ‘light’ of this covert entity called the ESF and its strategies? Might Mr. Lew have some insight? What about Mr. Dudley at the New York Fed? Who else? All the official authorities do ‘hate’ silver and gold (our traditional Constitutional monies)!
