This is what I’ve been saying all along, if banks had to value their toxic debt at market value, the banking system would not survive.  The Fed and the rest of the central banks know this.  That means they will absolutely not stop tapering because the banking system would not stand.  It would not survive either in the US or in Europe.  This is why the Fed decision will definitely be no tapering.

The troubling point here is the central planners will want to push gold down to the US dollar lows because gold in all of the other currencies has already made lower lows than what we saw in late June.  I’m not sure they will succeed in pushing gold to new lows, but it is irrelevant because whether the rally starts at Christmas or the beginning of 2014, next year will be the most spectacular market for gold and silver because of what’s going to happen in the world economy.  

As we see the fall in the world economy in 2014, that will lead to massive money printing and QE from all of the central banks next year.  Gold and silver will be the major beneficiaries of this money printing and QE.  So 2014 will be a huge year for both the metals and the mining shares.”
