A Freebie from Uncle Ted

Ted Butler's "New Year" newsletter was released to subscriber's on Wednesday. He's made it public today through the SilverSeek site.

Out On A Limb

Turd's Limb has been a pretty lonely place. (Much like it was back in college.) Last month, it seemed that nearly every blogosphere "analyst" was predicting a break to new lows in the metals. It got particularly lonely last week but we held firm to our convictions. Now we are being rewarded with a January move UP, not down. Can it continue?

We've started the year off with a nice rally. Will it hold? Can it hold? C'mon in and let's talk about it.

Off and Running

The new year has begun. Let's get back up to speed by looking at a few charts.

12/31/09 All Over Again

Four years ago, in one of the first ZeroHedge articles that I recall reading, "Tyler" questioned how in the world the U.S. government would find funding in 2010.

There are now SO many situations that can be expected to tip over at any moment, that it hardly seems worthwhile to expend additional energy searching for and painstakingly exploring FURTHER black swan candidates.

Today, Turd begins to wrap up a tumultuous 2013 and look ahead to what will surely be an eventful 2014.

It's Getting Late

Not just in the year but in the day. I know that many of you are wondering what I expect next week and into early January. Let's get to it.

TFMR Podcast - Thursday, December 26

Turd's back and still feeling the holiday spirit. Today we talk gold and silver, of course, but if you're not paying attention to ole DrC, you should be. CNBS will tell you that it's about "the global economy". Uhhhhhh......not so much. And this has enormous implications for gold and silver in 2014.
