Former Director of the U.S. Budget Office David Stockman writes: Wolf Richter is one of the most astute observers ofour bubble-ridden/central bankperverted financial scene around. His blog called Testosterone Pit is a daily “must read” and more than that: its posts are succinct, spritely, fact-based, conclusionary and cover the global map with special insight on thosedebt ridden houses of cards on the other side of the Pacific—-Japan and China. Wolf today issued a timely warning. Next week we will be told by Wall Street stock peddlers that what are just having a healthy correction and that it will soon betime to “buy the

Alessandro Speciale and Andre Tartar write for Bloomberg: Mario Draghi will probably take action within two months against the threat of deflation, economists said. Almost two-thirds of respondents in the Bloomberg Monthly Survey predicted the European Central Bank president will ease policy by June. Of those economists, just under half said he may implement multiple measures ranging from interest-rate cuts to asset purchases and long-term loans.

Even so, recent comments show officials haven’t yet agreed on which tools

The gold price has corrected but I don’t think its rolled over unless it gets quite a bit lower.

This is installment two, picking up where installment one left off. We’re just letting folks know what’s on our shopping list on dips and before the gold and silver markets really really heat up again. Most people enjoy a bargain in a department store but won’t touch a stock when it’s on sale. Go figure. We love to buy when things are cheap. How about you?

J.M. checks in to ask if we are still accumulating the smaller issuers “with the equity markets looking weaker” and with “bonds starting to reflect queasiness again.” Well, first of all, we have to concur with the assessment that the Big Markets are looking weaker and that bonds are showing signs of fear. That’s a good read on his part. And yes, we are still in accumulation mode for our smaller issuer faves, like Constantine Metal Resources (CEM.V). Constantine is going to be doing some very exciting drilling in SE Alaska at Palmer this year and this year’s $6.2 million budget is funded
