Maya Calendar Portends Final Gold and Silver Rallies

If that title doesn't grab your attention, I'm not sure what will.  You see, Hollywood has etched a connection between an archaic culture's calendar and the fate of the world into modernity's consciousness with just one movie.  Which was enough to elicit this paragraph on the Wikipedia article about the Maya calendar:

"Misinterpretation of the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar is the basis for a New Age belief that a cataclysm will take place on December 21, 2012. December 21, 2012 is simply the day that the calendar will go to the next baktun."

So, if the οἱ πολλοί are gonna fall for calendar predictions, surely they'll fall for a similar correlation to the current bubble-formation in certain precious metal commodity markets.  There, of course, AFAIK is no such correlation, but if it makes you feel better, let's see how high AU and AG are gonna go:

As the 8th Long Count after creation (in 3114 BCE) occurs on a year that corresponds closely to today's closing price for AG:  -- September 5, 41 CE   The next long date ends in the year 435 ( -- December 9, 435), so that must be the top of the current silver rally.  Hold on to your hats!

As the world will not (probably) end on December 21, 2012 ( December 21, 2012), gold must be going to peak above that number.  The next Long Count year is 2407 (  March 26, 2407), which nearly corresponds to the time that Captain Kirk and Jean Luc Picard rule the high seas, so that must be gold's next peak.  Still holding your hats?

So, there you have it - commodity peaks based on the Maya Calendar:
AG: $435/oz.
AU: $2407/oz.

I guess ZSL is gonna have to reverse split coupla more times. :-)

    ""I still have a target for silver to reach the $187 level," Weber said. "I’ve had this for nearly a decade now. There’ll be corrections at some point – we’re actually overdue for one. But I think silver will be the best investment of this era.""
