Another Ukraine Update from JB and SFC

The Ukrainian parliamentary elections were held back on Sunday and the US media has already moved on, declaring it a victory for "western support in Kiev". As you might expect, the actual situation is quite different and last evening John and Steve again accurately dissected the situation.

What a yawner as today saw gold trade in a $2 range for most of the session. With Old Mother Fellen due to release her Fedlines tomorrow, you can rest assured that the boredom will soon abate. In the meantime, here are some charts that seem to indicate that the action tomorrow, and the rest of this week, will be quite significant in terms of trend.

Ahead of Tomorrow's Fedlines

As the "markets" anxiously await the statement that will come tomorrow at the conclusion on the current FOMC meeting, here are some charts that show what has transpired in the six weeks since the previous FOMC.

Old Mother Fellen

A real yawner of a day prepares us for what will be a much more interesting end of the week. Ahead of the expected volatility, Turd takes some time to address the HUI and a few, selected miners.

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. On the one side we have fringe conspiracy theorists who charge that the Satanic sociopaths in charge want to depopulate the planet, yet are faking the Ebola threat for some bizarre reason. On the other we have what appear to be Democratic operatives flooding news comment sections making fun of anyone who is concerned about Ebola.

Whew! Turd doesn't usually record podcasts while he's all amped up on his morning coffee. Combining some caffeine with another grotesque CoT report is the recipe for a rather...shall we say, uh, volatile?...performance.

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.
