Last week, Alasdair Macleod, Dave Kranzler and I joined Rory Hall of The Daily Coin to discuss the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) and the new Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB).

Guest Post: "The Real Reason The American Dream is Unraveling", by Jim Quinn

This excellent exposé from Jim Quinn was written a week ago but I thought it would serve as a good discussion point this weekend.

TFMR Podcast - Friday, March 27

The expiration shenanigans continued all day, only to be exacerbated by a late day speech by Mother Fellen in San Francisco. Though many "analysts" seem to think that this all foreshadows a renewed move lower, Ole Turd isn't in agreement. This podcast will explain the reasons why prices will continue to drift higher, not lower, in the days ahead.

More Expiration Shenanigans

After yesterday's ridiculously managed option expiration, we must now deal with the usual fun-and-games that surround delivery month contract expiration.

As gold quietly lurches toward option expiration and $1200, Turd takes time to review a few other items that have been on his mind lately.

Guest Post: "Selling Time", by Paul Mylchreest of ADM Investor Services

You'll likely recall that our pal, Paul Mylchreest, has long been a valued part of Turdville. He now works for ADM Investor Services and, whenever he writes a new research article, he freely shares them with us. His latest work is a must read and is reprinted here.

Please Listen to JB-SFC

Even if you only listen to the first 10 minutes of last night's program, please take the time to do so. The "Minsk Agreements" for peace in Ukraine are soon to be dead, completely nullified by recent political actions in Kiev.

TFMR Podcast - Tuesday, March 24

The yawnfest continued through the day as the metals drifted mostly higher toward Thursday option expiration. No worries, though, as Turd managed to find a few interesting things to discuss in this podcast.
