(Not So) Happy Tuesday

Tuesday, May 4, 2021 - 10:54am

For the first time in a while, it's a "Happy Tuesday" instead of a "Terrible Tuesday" least for now...and the fact that this actions follows on the rally of yesterday makes it all the more surprising and helpful.

So what's the deal? Why are the Comex PMs up after falling overnight...

TFMR Podcast - Monday, May 3

Monday, May 3, 2021 - 4:30pm

It was a great start to the week but you know the old TFMR adage. So let's keep going and see where the road takes us.

For today, there was no real news outside of what we discussed this morning. I sat through 45 minutes of drivel from Chief Goon Powell where he once again managed to...

One Hundred Hours To Go

Monday, May 3, 2021 - 10:49am

It was a fun and active weekend and now the new week has begun with a bang. However, the week ahead is going to by very long and very busy so strap yourself in and let's see where the ride takes us.

First of all, thanks to everyone who played along with the #MayDaySilver idea. For my...

Beer with TF - April 2021

Our monthly Happy Hour and Cocktail Party


It's that time again.

Beer with TF has become a bit of a tradition here at TFMR. If you don't understand yet what makes TFMR different from other precious metal websites and newsletters, then maybe this monthy Happy Hour and Cocktail Party will drive the point home?

At any...

Well, here we are. It's time for May Day Silver but it's also time to remember the significance of what happened on May 1, 2011, too...a date which has truly lived in infamy.

Frankly, I can't believe it's been 10 years. The LTs were still just little girls and I was about 25 years...

TFMR Podcast - Thursday, April 29

Thursday, April 29, 2021 - 3:38pm

It was another exhausting day for all of us interested in the precious metals. So, I'm posting this podcast early in order to get out of my office and go do something else. I strongly suggest you do the same.

For today, just some discussion about what ails me most today. It's a shorter...

Deja Vu All Over Again

Thursday, April 29, 2021 - 10:00am

It's just the same old, same old. Rates spike and the HFT algos dump CDG. No matter the fundamentals. No matter the dollar dilution. Nothing matters. And here we are. Pinned and stuck below $1780 just like we were last year at this time.

So what happened? How did we go from a nice post...

TFMR Podcast - Wednesday, April 28

Wednesday, April 28, 2021 - 5:41pm

Our purple tie-wearing little buddy crawled out from under his bridge again today to troll the mainstream financial "journalists" who, under daily deadlines, continue to promote the notion that somehow The Fed should be ready to taper or pause QE and/or raise the fed funds rate.


Pre-Fedline Open Thread

Wednesday, April 28, 2021 - 9:39am

Well, it's another FOMC day. Wasn't it just an FOMC day a few days ago? Where did the last six weeks go? Oy.

So we await Chief Goon Powell, his Fedlines and his "press conference" beginning at 2:00 pm ET today. Yippee. But the fun doesn't stop there. No, sirree! This evening we get...
