TFMR Podcast - Friday, November 9

It was a lousy day and the charts now look lousy, too. It's no fun to end the week this way but we must prepare for even lower prices ahead.

After a general discussion, we begin with the "stock market", which was magically saved once again today just as it threatened to breach its 200-...

No Bed Of Roses

No pleasure cruise.


But we ARE the champions. And we WILL keep on fighting 'til the end.

And though that end seems so far off this morning, this is nothing more than another patience-trying exhibition of bullion bank price manipulation.

Once price was only allowed to rise $50 on the Managed Money...

TFMR Podcast - Thursday, November 8

Today's non-event Fedlines sparked a POSX rally on the alleged "hawkishness" of the Fed. What a crock! As if The Fed is sudden hawkish!

So, whatever. All of this is just more MSM nonsense to explain that which they are too simple-minded to understand. But here's something they might...

Downbound Range

Comex Digital Metals remain unloved and unwanted.


Another day begins with a Digital Gold smashing right out of the Comex starting gate. And don't forget that there are a set of Fedlines due this afternoon.

So here we go again. This makes three days in a row and very nearly 4-4 this week....

TFMR Podcast - Wednesday, November 7

The "stock market" soared today as if some type of political nirvana was just found in Washington DC. HAH! The next two years will be anything but! Regardless, The Machines bought stocks today and dumped digital gold....despite flat bonds and a falling POSX.

But, whatever. We begin...

Ready For The Gridlock

Ready to take it to the street.


Well, here we go. We've written since at least January that the US midterm elections would bring gridlock, endless investigations and declining confidence. We're about to see if that theory holds: https://www.tfmetalsreport....

TFMR Podcast - Tuesday, November 6

It was a long Election Day and the results should soon begin pouring in from across the US. In the meantime, there's plenty of other stuff to discuss.

We begin with a discussion of the news of the day, which includes the three screenshots below:...

Election Doldrums

It's not quite like the summer doldrums but today's action is similar.


It's not quite like the summer doldrums but today's action is similar. We'll likely sit and wait with prices in a range, all the while subject to sudden spikes and selloffs due to random headlines about turnout and exit polls. So, why not a Hat Contest?!?

Ummm, let's see...What can we...

TFMR Podcast - Monday, November 5

It was a relatively quiet day and tomorrow may be, too. But the US midterm elections should send the "markets" either reeling or soaring by Wednesday.

But we begin today with a discussion of these two links and then the tweet below:...

Politcal Mania

Tuesday's US elections will have a major impact on gold.


The week begins with a U-turn on the chart. Is that what we have to look forward to this week?

In case you missed it earlier, here's a 5-minute chart showing the action/reaction to the Iran sanction news and other headlines:...

Guest Post: The Fourth Turning & The War of The Worlds, by Jim Quinn

Please be sure to read this today.


Please be sure to take some time to read this today. Ahead of Tuesday's US elections, our friend Jim Quinn accurately and eloquently summarizes where we are relative to "The Fourth Turning".


TFMR Podcast - Friday, November 2

A slightly positive week has us looking ahead to year end.

It was a relatively quiet day considering that it was a BLSBS Friday. However, with the 10-year note back above 3.20%, it will be interesting to see if volatility returns as soon as Monday.

It's your normal Friday podcast so, after a general discussion, we dive right into the charts....

Compost BLSBS

Comex gold prices rally following the latest garbage of the BLSBS.


Well, all things considered, when Comex gold and silver can shrug off a "strong and robust" BLSBS, then maybe things are indeed beginning to turn.

If you missed the news from earlier, here's the official summary from ZH:...

Thursday Conversation - Brent Johnson of Santiago Capital

An informative discussion on the future of the US$.


Brent Johnson is one of the good guys. He's a sound money advocate who understands that, though change is coming, it's not necessarily coming next week.

To that end, it was great fun to get caught up with Brent and discuss the US$...not only the long-term forecast but what can be...

Green Day

Green across the board...at least for today.


It's always a big shock when you wake up tp find green all over your board. It's so rare, in fact, that I often take snapshots of it for eye candy purposes and use later....

TFMR Podcast - Wednesday, October 31

It was a no-fun Halloween as the "stock market" surged, bonds sold off and the POSX was firm. You can probably guess what that meant for the Comex metals.

For today, we discuss these two links:


Reloading The Specs

The charts are getting scary, too.


Just as we began to suspect on Monday, the raid/smash continues today with prices breaking down toward critical support where The Bankers hope to drive The Specs back into the short side of the trade.

And it's already happening. As we mentioned yesterday, with the price of Comex silver...

JBSFC and the US Midterms

Another update of events in the New Cold War.


With the US midterm elections less than one week away, it's only a matter of time before the howls begin that Russia "meddled" and "stole" the elections, particularly if the R-republocrats somehow manage to maintain control of Congress.

There's a lot of great history in last night's...

TFMR Podcast - Tuesday, October 30

Blythe's ghost haunts the palladium market, too.

It was a down day in the Comex metals as the "stock market" rushed back from yesterday's lows. But the week is young and there is a lot of news to come.

So we begin today as we have quite frequently as of late...with the "stock market":...

Support Levels

Was yesterday's raid a Bank warning shot?


Well...ole Turd just spent about an hour typing up a new post...only to mistakenly navigate away from the page and then lose it forever. I won't be making that mistake again. However, I'm going to type fast now in the hope of replicating it in some fashion.

Yes, Comex gold looks good....
