TFMR Podcast - Wednesday, November 25

Wednesday, November 25, 2020 - 5:15pm

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?

Wednesday, November 25, 2020 - 10:14am

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?...

TFMR Podcast - Tuesday, November 24

Tuesday, November 24, 2020 - 5:32pm

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...

SPECIAL PODCAST: Dr. Quinton Hennigh of New Found Gold Corp.

Tuesday, November 24, 2020 - 4:07pm

On Monday, I finally had a chance to visit with Dr. Quinton Hennigh. Many of you know Dr. Hennigh as the president of Novo Resources but he's also a technical advisor and board member to a promising new company called New Found Gold. Take my word for it. You want to listen to this podcast....

Another Liquidation Event

Tuesday, November 24, 2020 - 10:46am

It appears that there is no longer any reason at all to own gold in any form. Didn't you hear that there's now a Covid vaccine and that the Biden/Yellen combo will solve all future debt and deficit issues? So, sell it all and buy stocks and least that's what The Banks hope you do...

TFMR Podcast - Monday, November 23

Monday, November 23, 2020 - 5:15pm

For the third Monday in a row, digital metal prices were hammered on the Comex today. But now, with option expiration looming for tomorrow, do not be surprised if prices actually rally back a little in the hours ahead.

But then, for the rest of the week? We'll see. What we know for...

SPECIAL PODCAST: Paul Matysek of Victory Metals

Monday, November 23, 2020 - 11:00am

Paul Matysek is a renowned resource investor. In fact, in 2018 he was named the EY "Entrepreneur Of The Year" for the mining and resource sector. So when I heard about the direction he was taking his latest project, I jumped at the opportunity to visit with him.

At present, Victory...

Turkey Week

Monday, November 23, 2020 - 10:48am

It's Thanksgiving Week in the U.S. and the week begins with a real turkey of a day as the latest "flash" PMI numbers for November are used as cover to "flush" the Comex metals. It's a good thing this week is my favorite for excessive wine drinking as it looks like I'm going to need it....

TFMR Podcast - Saturday, November 21

Saturday, November 21, 2020 - 11:34am

It's another Saturday podcast and we have a lot to cover so please settle in and give this podcast a listen sometime this weekend.

For today, another reminder that the Dec20 option expiration is next Tuesday with the contracts going off the board and into delivery next Friday. In prep...

Alright, It's Friday!!

A long week is nearly over.

Friday, November 20, 2020 - 10:30am

When the LTs were little, we would scream this in the car on the way to school. Friday is always the best day of the work week and it was just our way of getting excited for the weekend. And after how this week has gone, we should all be excited that it's nearly over.
