Getting Angry

Some days are worse than others.

As you know, every once in a while your kind and gracious host gets a little...shall we say, frustrated?...at the bullshit nonsense of the Comex. Today is one of those days.

So we actually began the day without a NEEEE Rule opening slam on the Comex. This was the first time since last...

The week begins with another enforcement of The Banks' NEEEE Rule...which has now been applied for four of the past six days. But, whatever. We'll soon be moving forward again and today we discuss some items that will impact us the rest of this week.

We begin with a general discussion...

A guide to 2019 and beyond.

For each of the past several years, we've written January posts that helped to serve as a road map for the year ahead. Though crystal ball-gazing is an inexact science, on balance we've done a pretty good job with these forecasts. As 2019 dawns, we thought we should give it another try today...

Thursday (Friday) Conversation - Dave Collum

A look back at 2018 and a look ahead into 2019.

It's with great pleasure that we introduce a new guest to TFMR, Dr. Dave Collum of Cornell University. Though Dave is professor of organic chemistry by day, he's also a terrific analyst and commentator regarding the global financial system. His annual "Year In Review" column is always a must...

Bull Market Games

The Banks are up to their usual tricks.

The new day dawns with the Comex metals trading in much the same manner as they have for the past few weeks...with the regular imposition of the Never, Ever, Ever, Ever, Ever Rule.

If you're new to TFMR, perhaps you're unaware of the "NEEEE Rule". No, it's not named after legendary...

An Update on OneGold

Why fool around with GLD and SLV when OneGold is available?

Thursday, January 10, 2019 - 3:17pm

Here's another weapon in the fight against The Banks and a great alternative to GLD and SLV. Not only that, it's a great way to accumulate and stack physical precious metal!

Earlier this week, I jumped at the opportunity to record this update with Ken Lewis, CEO of APMEX. Why? Because...

The Banks Fight At $15.80

Get ready. It's going to be like this all year.

This is so freaking obvious and ridiculous that I thought it deserved its own post. What's even more ridiculous is the amount of shills and charlatans who still publicly cling to the silly notion that the Comex silver market is a free and fair marketplace for physical price discovery.

TFMR Podcast - Wednesday, January 9

Wednesday, January 9, 2019 - 5:50pm

Today's theme is "I Survived The FOMC Minutes of 1/9/19". The minutes were perceived to be "dovish" by talking heads, pundits and sell-side analysts everywhere. This led to a late-day surge in both Comex metals and now we just hope for some follow-through tomorrow and into the weekly close....

Our friends John Batchelor and Professor Stephen F. Cohen kicked off the new year last evening with their first podcast of 2019. We've been diligently posting these weekly discussions for nearly five years now and we will continue to post them for as long as John and Steve continue to record...

Ahead Of The Minutes

A great start to the day but beware the Fed reversal two-step.

Wednesday, January 9, 2019 - 10:28am

The "stock market" is up 10% sonce the arrival of the PPT on December 26. It's up 5% since CGP gave his speech in Atlanta last Friday. Therefore, what to expect when the minutes of the December FOMC are finally released at 2:00 pm EST today? Are CDG and CDS being allowed to rise only so they...

TFMR Podcast - Tuesday, January 8

Tuesday, January 8, 2019 - 4:44pm

The week thus far is a wash. However, that will rapidly change tomorrow and through Friday with the FOMC minutes, a speech by CGP and the release of the December CPI.

For today, we simply bring you up-to-speed on the events of the day and then discuss these seven charts in order:...

An Eye On The Yuan-Gold "Peg"

It's time for an update and a reconsideration.

No, we haven't forgotten about this issue in the excitement of the year-end and Q1 rally. There has just been a lot of other stuff to discuss. So today let's take a minute to revisit the "peg" and see if it still holds relevance.

Again, we wrote about this repeatedly in the second half...

TFMR Podcast - Monday, January 7

Monday, January 7, 2019 - 4:59pm

The week begins with gold rebounding from the BLSBS wipeout last Friday. OK, that's nice. However, this is another one of those weeks where the end will be far more important than the beginning so let's get started by assessing the day and then preparing for what's to come.

After the...

All Hands On Deck

2019 officially begins today as everyone from traders to investors to Bank Monkeys are back at work and ready to roll. What will this mean for the POSX? What will this mean for the stock and bond markets? And most importantly, what will this mean for Comex gold and silver?

Let's start...

TFMR Podcast - Friday, January 4

Friday, January 4, 2019 - 3:34pm

We survived the monthly shenanigans of the BLSBS and now it's time to take stock of the daily and weekly charts as the tremendous year of 2019 gets underway.

We begin with a final discussion of the BLSBS and we check the 2018 volume of EFPs in Comex gold....

BLSBSLOLHAHAHA

We don't call it the BLSBS for nothing.

From seemingly out of the blue and against all odds, the BLSBS today came in with the largest "job gains" since June of 2016...just in time to send the "stock market" surging and Comex gold crashing. As if we've never seen this movie before...

You know, when CDG tapped $1300 last...

It was an alarming day in the global markets as cash poured out of equity markets and into US treasuries. What do these epic moves foreshadow? Anything or nothing? Today , we discuss the possibilities.

How 'Bout Them Apples?

Some terrible forward guidance from Apple and a forex flash crash have combined today to create a toxic stew for the stockroaches, who are left hoping for another PPT intervention to save the day.

By now, you likely know all about what happened late yesterday so let's just skip...

TFMR Podcast - Wednesday, January 2

Wednesday, January 2, 2019 - 5:25pm

The year 2019 gets off to a hot start and it promises to hold all sorts of positive outcomes for all of us long-suffering precious metal investors.

It's always a good sign to begin the new year with an UP day...well, at least it's not a bad sign.

And that's where we are as 2019 begins. Comex gold traded has mostly traded higher since trading resumed last evening. Comex silver was initially pillaged for nearly 1% but it has since...
