All Is Not Lost

The last three weeks have been tough on everyone but it's not as if we haven't been through this before. Rather than capitulate, it might be wise to consider that all is not lost and that the general direction of "the markets" in 2017 is not a fait accompli.

Gobble Up Some Jackass

TFMR Podcast - Monday, November 21

A relatively quiet day as the holiday week begins and Dec16 option expiration looms for tomorrow. Regardless, there's still plenty to talk about from gold to the yen to the "delivery" situation on the Comex.

Holiday Week Begins

It may be a holiday week in the U.S. but the trading still counts and price changes are real. Though the week will be choppy, we nonetheless have to keep our attention focused on the "markets".
