In yesterday's podcast, we discussed the likelihood of a bounce and the possibility of finally establishing the bottom and low for this seemingly endless consolidation phase. Lo and behold, look at what happened today.

So, in today's podcast, we discuss what to watch from here and how...

I hope you listened to yesterday's podcast as the signs were certainly present that foreshadowed today's bounce. And the question is...Is that it? Is this just an oversold bounce or is this the start of the Comex metals finally rushing to catch back up with everything else?

Again, the...

The week got off to a better start than it might seem so let's wrap up November and begin to look forward to what promises to be an important month of December.

What a terrible month November ended up being. After looking great on November 6, the Pfizer news of November 9 was used as cover to completely reverse the break out and now we're down $200 in Comex gold and $4 in Comex silver in the three weeks since. I've seen reports today that this will...

What a day. What a week. What a month. But all three are almost over so please take a few minutes to listen to this podcast over the weekend.

It's the day after U.S. Thanksgiving. It's a Friday with holiday-shortened trading hours. Generally light volume as traders take a 4-day weekend and most folks are out shopping or watching football. The dollar index is down a few pennies and still under 92. The bond market is rallying a little...

Whether you enjoy your holiday Jackass baked, smoked or deep fried, it's always a treat.

My old pal Jim and I will, of course, record our year-in-review in just five weeks. So, for today, I asked Jim to focus upon just one topic...this notion of a pending "Global Reset".

Well...

Gosh, what a day. Long and busy. Tomorrow brings a U.S. market holiday and I'm all for it as I could really use a day off. But first, we have a podcast to record.

This was such a busy day that I feel that most of the news of the day has passed me by. I've tried to play catch up but...

December To Remember?

Every year at this time, I begin to see television commercials for the car company Lexus. Their annual sale is called "The December To Remember" and the commercials run through the entire football bowl season. Will we have our own "December To Remember" in regards to Comex delivery stress?...

Another day, another price smash designed to coerce and dissuade all parties from standing for December delivery. If you don't quite understand what I mean, please be sure to give this podcast special attention today.

As discussed this morning, that highly unusual purchase and delivery...
