Free-Range Jackass

After overcoming the audio difficulties that plagued the end of Part One, Jim Willie returns in Part Two with an open mic and lots on his mind. If you're looking for something to do this holiday weekend, here's 90 minutes of free-range Jackass to help you kill the time.

Terrible BLSBS Sets Up An Interesting Monday

Because of the holiday, I did something today I never do....I slept through "Hampton Pearson at The Labor Department" and his breathless reporting of the monthly jobs data. And it's too bad, too. I would have loved to have seen the jaw-dropping astonishment of the rest of the CNBS crew at the release of the "very disappointing" numbers.

Holiday Jackass Part One

Earlier today, The Golden Jackass himself (Jim Willie) spent over two hours here in Turdville, discussing everything from the Yemeni Crisis to the new AIIB to a potential Nicaraguan Canal. This first recording is just the opening 30 minutes, as Jim was getting warmed up.

As the first quarter of 2015 draws to a close, let's take inventory of where we stand and then let's see if we notice anything interesting.

It's contract expiration and the end of the quarter...and gold is being sold off. There's a surprise! To help keep you grounded, Turd spend some time today reminding everyone why we all hold physical precious metal in the first place.

Under Pressure Into Expiration

As is usually the case, gold is down this morning ahead of today's April contract expiration and First Notice Day tomorrow. So far, though, take heart in seeing support hold right where you'd expect.
