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. I started the day the “satan signal” appeared. I just thought that was very interesting and people might be curious and open to hear about FED manipulation and the PPT. But each time I begin preaching, I have certain relatives to tell me to stop being a gloom ‘n doomer. (I probably shouldn’t have had that beer before I sat down to write my last Facebook post).

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.

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.

If you like listening to a sustained 20-minute rant, then this podcast for you. Apparently Turd had some pent up frustrations to get off his chest so today's podcast is a little more animated than most.

The China Gold Association Confirms Koos' Numbers

Now even the China Gold Association is openly admitting that total Chinese wholesale demand was 2,200 metric tonnes in 2013. Of course, the only "analysis" that seems to matter creeps from the bowels of The World Gold Council, which continues to understate Chines demand fully by half. Why does the WGC persist with their imaginary numbers? Could an agenda be involved?

Something Other Than Charts

While we watch prices be stomped lower yet again, here are a couple of items to help take your mind off of things and maybe feel a little bit better.

TFMR Podcast - Wednesday, October 22

Oh, boy. Here they come again. Gold and silver were both lower today and crude has fallen back toward last week's lows. What might the remainder of the week hold? C'mon in and let's talk about it.
