Hmmm. Maybe ole Turd's silly little lines and doodles have some merit, after all?

Gold was down early but rallied late. What might tomorrow bring?

Still Right On Schedule

As mentioned yesterday, I took advantage of today's dip below $20 in silver and once again added to my stack. Though there may be a bit more weakness to come, this week is certainly progressing just as we thought it might.

Holding Down the Fort

The rhetorical vision of the precious metals markets in 2010-2011 brought a distant dream near to us with arguments for silver strength coming from various directions, including a couple of cartoon bears.

I have no idea whether this truly a real ‘exit’ from the current world order. But my lineage and upbringing dictate that I continue to believe in the indomitability of the human spirit. Light will eventually prevail, and victories that seem pyrrhic may topple symbols and thus ideologies.

Futures Manipulation - Third Branch Getting Involved

Whether this is misplaced hope or a sign of good things to come is certainly anything but certain.  Articles abound regarding recent lawsuits filed against CME and big banks, for example:
