Because you already have 65 minutes of Jackass as your disposal, I tried to keep this as brief as possible. After discussing this "Comex default" issue, we then review these 8 charts:

Pre-Holiday Jackass

In a continuance of our holiday tradition, Jim Willie stopped by Turdville this morning for a discussion of current events. As is also tradition, Vault subscribers get first crack at the audio.

A Full Year of Ukraine Crisis

Fifteen thousand casualties, which includes over five thousand dead, and a country in ruins. And it didn't have to be this way.

Option expiry passes without incident. You should not expect contract expiry to do the same.

November Delivery; A Comex Odyssey

By now, we all know that the process of Comex metal delivery is shady and deliberately opaque. What has transpired these past few weeks only strengthens this belief.

Gobble, Gobble!

An odd week begins with Dec14 option expiry today, Dec14 contract expiry on Wednesday, an American holiday on Thursday, a holiday-shortened trading session on Friday and the Swiss Gold Initiative vote on Sunday. What does this mean? Be ready for all sorts of price volatility.

The Golden Canary

Why not have a bit of fresh weekend reading while Turd is under the weather. Feel free to share this short article with anyone whom it may benefit.

Gold has always been viewed as a safe haven for investors when world markets are in turmoil. When the bear comes out of the cave, sell your stocks and guy gold, then sit tight until the bulls are back. That cute little system has worked for people since our nation left the gold standard back in the sixties, but it has turned gold into the proverbial canary in the coal mine. When the canary stops singing, due to unbreathable or flammable gasses building up, the miners better get out.

A volatile day with plenty of Cartel expiration shenanigans. However, price again recovered nicely and the metals enter next week's option and contract expiration with a little bit of positive momentum.

Great Swiss Gold Initiative Infographic

The friendly folks at Gainesville Coins sent over this terrific infographic for The Swiss Gold Initiative. You should be sure to check it out.

Crazy Friday

All of a sudden, I have so much to write about that I don't know where to start and prices are surging, too. A crazy end to a crazy week and next week brings December expirations so it's not like it's going to get any easier anytime soon.
