TF Metals Report Blogs

And I Feel Fine

It's the end of the world as we know it. OK, maybe it's not quite that dramatic but today's action by the Bank of Japan will likely set off a chain of events in the months ahead that will have a blistering effect on all paper "assets". As I've mentioned repeatedly just this week, the fiat-conversion price of precious metal may be going down but your personal stack of physical metal has never been more valuable.

No Joy in Mudville

Like you, I was hoping that we could file away these longer-term charts with the downward price targets. Unfortunately, the price action of yesterday and today means that we have to revisit them.

Ahead of Tomorrow's Fedlines

As the "markets" anxiously await the statement that will come tomorrow at the conclusion on the current FOMC meeting, here are some charts that show what has transpired in the six weeks since the previous FOMC.

Old Mother Fellen

Old Mother Fellen came out yelling and took away the market's bone. But the deflation scare had laid the market bare once all of the QE was done.

The Jeremiad

The other day I found myself saddled with the Jeremiah complex. I have been posting short warnings on Facebook (a site which most of my family reads vigorously) about the economic situation.

Picking Up Where We Left Off

A new week begins nearly the same as the old week ended with gold stuck in a tight range. With another set of "Fedlines" due in 50 hours, something tells me we won't be stuck in this range for much longer.

Election Time Ebola Reality Check: CDC Admits Droplet and Doorknob Transmission

That's right. Ebola can be transmitted by sneezes and doorknobs. 

I simply don't get the people who are downplaying Ebola. On the one side we have fringe conspiracy theorists who charge that the Satanic sociopaths in charge want to depopulate the planet, yet are faking the Ebola threat for some bizarre reason. On the other we have what appear to be Democratic operatives flooding news comment sections making fun of anyone who is concerned about Ebola.

 

A Key Moment Awaits

Both gold and silver are progressing toward defining moments. How the charts get resolved will go a long way toward determining which direction the metals trade in 2015.

Must Watch Video

By now, most have seen last week's announcement from First Majestic Silver regarding their decision to withhold some silver from the market at these price levels. In this remarkably candid interview, the CEO of First Majestic proposes a new "Silver Producer Cartel" to counter the price manipulations so prevalent in today's paper markets.
