Ying and Yang

No, this is not a post about some new Chinese law firm. Instead, it's just an update on the metals markets which, while refusing to go further down, aren't making much progress to the upside, either.

Some Possible Encouragement

Longtime readers of this site know that forces we've termed "The London Monkeys" usually attack and lower paper metal prices about four days out of every five. However, during periods of strong physical demand, we've sometimes seen where these "Monkeys" stand down and prices rise in the U.S. overnight, instead. Is this beginning to occur again?

Another Turd Hat

Just when it looked like the week might get off to a nice start, some positive economic news came along. This spiked rates and the USDJPY and the result is another one of those "Turd Hat" formations we've all come to loathe.

October Comex Gold "Deliveries"

The next 48 hours in Syria will be important as a "humanitarian pause" has been declared around Aleppo in order to allow some residents safe passage out of the area. Will this initiative proceed or will it end in flames, as the "humanitarian convoy" did a few weeks ago.

The Importance of The Deutsche Bank Silver Fix Lawsuit Settlement

This post is intended to remind you that this case is not about the present and it's not about the $38MM dollars. Instead, the true significance of this lawsuit will be on display over the coming months and years as innumerable new class action lawsuits are filed against The Bullion Banks for their collective role in rigging and manipulating the precious metals markets.

Paper Gold Rebuffed at 200-day...Again
