A Time For Action

Tuesday, April 20, 2021 - 10:35am

Many of us are fed up. We've dealt with the overt Bank price manipulation of the Comex precious metals for years if not decades and we're all ready for it to end. Individually we are powerless to stop it as The Banks and their captured "regulators" collude to maintain their power. However,...

TFMR Podcast - Monday, April 19

Monday, April 19, 2021 - 5:02pm

The week got off to a lousy start with the expected overt price manipulation as both CDG and CDS are attempting to stage important breakouts. Will The Banks be successfull in driving prices backward again? As you might imagine, much will depend upon how the key HFT inputs trade the rest of the...

Deja Red

Monday, April 19, 2021 - 10:16am

It's deja vu all over again, as Yogi Berra once said. Just as recently as last Wednesday, nearly everything on the commodity board was green except, of course, for the Comex precious metals. And now here we are again today.

So let's start with a screenshot of the TFMR homepage. Again,...

TFMR Podcast - Saturday, April 17

Saturday, April 17, 2021 - 12:21pm

It's another one of those over-caffeinated Saturday podcasts and we have a lot to discuss so please take some time this weekend to give your weekly summary a thorough listen.

Again, since the CPI numbers last Tuesday, we've been closely watching the bond market to see if rates would...

SPECIAL PODCAST: Neil Woodyer, CEO of Aris Gold Corp.

Friday, April 16, 2021 - 2:00pm

On Thursday, I had the pleasure to visit with Neil Woodyer, the CEO of Aris Gold Corp. I'd not heard of Aris Gold before this week and it's likely you haven't, either. However, if you take the time to listen to this podcast, you'll likely become quite interested in learning more about this...

That Next Green Candle

Friday, April 16, 2021 - 10:47am

If you were following along yesterday, then you'll recall our interest in seeing another big green candle on the daily chart today. Things didn't look too good last night but that has all turned around today and now we'll wait to see if we can hold these gains through the close.


TFMR Podcast - Thursday, April 15

Thursday, April 15, 2021 - 5:34pm

It was a very fun day in the Comex precious metals and mining shares as the bond market rallied and inflation-adjusted or "real" interest rates plunged back to levels not seen since August.

So now, of course, the question becomes...where do we go from here? Tomorrow will be a very...

Exploiting Inefficiencies

Thursday, April 15, 2021 - 10:52am

You and I are nobodies. Just simple little peons trying to get by and plan for the future. However, there is Big Money in this world and one of the ways Big Money got big and stays big is by having the wisdom and experience to spot... and then exploit inefficiencies...

TFMR Podcast - Wednesday, April 14

Wednesday, April 14, 2021 - 5:45pm

A deliberate early morning smash in Comex Digital Gold set a lousy tone for what should have been a decent day. Didn't we just see this is Comex Digital Silver back on Monday? Yes, we did. And today was designed to have the same effect.

However, I'll remind you again that the current...

All Green...Except For The PMs

Wednesday, April 14, 2021 - 10:58am

Another egregious price smash in Comex gold this morning has left the commodity board entirely green except, of course, for the Comex digital precious metals.

Man oh man, some days are more difficult than others. Though we've seen this countless times before, the brazen price...
