TFMR Podcast - Wednesday, October 17

We survived another day of Comex precious metal price capping and FOMC shenanigans. Now can we close the week with any sort of upward momentum?

Ahead of the FOMC Minutes

Both Comex digital metals are up this morning ahead of the 2:00 pm EDT release of the minutes to last month's FOMC.

This Week With Batchelor and Cohen

After taking last week off, John and Steve returned last evening with an interesting history lesson of Cold War espionage mixed in with a discussion of current events.

After another magical rally in the Bank-controlled "stock market", perhaps we should feel grateful that the Comex metals finished largely unchanged on the day.

Clawing Higher

By

It has been a terrific, 5-day stretch for Comex gold and now prices are climbing even higher today as some of the bond market selling eases and the POSX falls back below 95.

Comex gold and silver finished the day solidly higher while the US "stock market" went out in its lows. It sure looks like another week where no one should quit smoking, drinking or sniffing glue.

October Surprises

The week begins with a falling POSX and rising Comex precious metals. Will it end that way, too?

TFMR Podcast - Friday, October 12

The week ends with some of the most obvious and overt manipulation of the "stock market" that we've seen in some time. Regardless, none of this lessens the value of the breakout in Comex gold that was sustained into today's close.

Back Up

The "stock market" has bounced higher today but, in a variation of an old TFMR adage, it's not how the S&P begins today that matters. It's how the S&P ends today and this week that will be important.

Chris Powell of GATA joins us for a an interesting and enlightening Thursday conversation.

Another Stab At The 50-Day

By

Comex Digital Gold is making another attempt at a first close north of its 50-day moving average since April 23. A rallying CNY, lower interest rates, a low CPI and a carryover safe haven bid from yesterday are all prompting today's move.

For once, the stockroaches got a chance to experience what we sound money advocates have grown to tolerate on a regular basis...a total ass-kicking. And now, with the calendar plainly showing that the month is October, things are set up for a VERY interesting overnight and into tomorrow.

Rain and Pain

Late yesterday, President Trump stated that The Fed was moving too fast on hiking the fed funds rate. Now today, the PPI comes in slightly softer than expectations. What an interesting set of circumstances for Chief Goon Powell.

With the yuan-gold peg beginning to dominate the discussion, today we make another attempt to explain the "how" component of the question.

More Catching On

By
28
10

The CNY-GC peg is now becoming so obvious that more and more folks are catching on. Unfortunately, this does little to stop or reverse the downward momentum.

TFMR Podcast - Monday, October 8

There are two bright sides on a day like today. One, we can now definitively state that someone/something has pegged dollar-gold to the dollar-yuan. And two, the shares actually rebounded and the HUI closed green on the day despite the yuan-related smashing of the Comex digital metals.

Dreary Monday

By
53
12

The Chinese return and the PBOC immediately weakened the CNY overnight. With Comex gold down as much as $17 earlier, I guess we have our answer regarding which way the "peg" would respond today.

TFMR Podcast - Friday, October 5

It will be a very interesting Monday and Tuesday as Comex gold finished the Chinese Golden Week with a 1% gain. Has price decoupled for the yuan? We'll know soon enough.

Our pal Ronni Stoeferle and his friends at Incrementum AG have just released the latest chartbook update in their "In Gold We Trust" series. Over the weekend, be sure to spend some time looking over this very valuable information.

A Non-Event BLSBS

Back in the day, BLSBS Friday meant volatility and craziness. In 2018 and with Comex gold now closely tied to the CNY, it seems the BLSBS hardly even matters.
