Guest Post: "Dancing On The Crumbling Precipice", by Jim Quinn of The Burning Platform

Dancing on the crumbling precipice
The rocks are coming loose just at the edge
Are we laughing? Are we crying?
Are we drowning? Are we dead?
Or is it all a dream?

The bombs are getting closer everyday
“That can never happen here

Another day, another price smash. And though it appears that The Banks will attempt to drive prices even lower in the days ahead, we may be due for a respite.

As we begin today, we ask you to review these links:

Targeting the 200-Day

Only the willfully blind fail to see.

Tuesday, April 16, 2019 - 10:33am

Today's action removes any remaining doubt regarding the Bank plan to break the price of Comex Digital Gold and bring it all the way down to the 200-day moving average.

Having now seen this play out again today, it is all crystal-clear for anyone not willfully blind. POSX is UNCH....

TFMR Podcast - Monday, April 15

Monday, April 15, 2019 - 5:09pm

The week begins with a selloff that led to a mini-reversal and some short-term hope that the support levels which have held thus far in 2019 will hold once again.

There's a lot to discuss today but only a few charts. We go through these one by one....

Welcome Back?

New week, Same nonsense.

Monday, April 15, 2019 - 10:25am

The more things change, the more they stay the same, I guess. Let's see, bonds are UNCH. The POSX is UNCH. The CNY is UNCH. And yet all of the commodities, including our precious precious, are smashed. And a happy Monday to you, too!...

OK, well. That was a long week. And for once, I'm not talking about the Comex metals! So, let's take a few minutes to get caught up and then get ready to tackle the week ahead.

After a general discussion and recap, we begin with the key economic datapoints...

Popular Sentiment - Psychology of The Zeitgeist.

Divide your enemies and conquer them. What is happening today in politics fits this adage. Sovereigns are playing their big game again.

Popular sentiment - psychology of the zeitgeist.

I called it "psychology of the zeitgeist", but I considered calling something like "When Everyone Has Their Own MKUltra" instead just for a minute. Just considered it for a moment, but state of the art as at that particular post WWII...

Thinking About Tomorrow

Wednesday, April 10, 2019 - 11:20am

In Craig’s absence I thought I’d provide something we can chat about, or at least you can call me names and explain how wrong I am.

I’ve been watching the metals lately and they just seem impeded. I wonder who it is that holds price down? It’s clear that Craig’s thesis of a move to...

On Again With Max & Stacy

Tuesday, April 9, 2019 - 11:01am

It's always great fun and quite informative to be on The Keiser Report with Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert. In these two episodes recorded last week we discuss gold, The Banks, monetary policy and the potential significance of palladium.

Thanks for watching and listening.
