TFMR Podcast - Wednesday, March 13

Wednesday, March 13, 2019 - 5:55pm

It was another solid day for the Comex metals but a late day spike in yields leads us to wonder if we might give back a little tomorrow.

However, I'm all for going sideways here as we prepare for next week's FOMC. Too much bounceback...gaining back ground too soon...can lead to short-...

Your weekly podcast is once again a must listen episode.

A slightly different format this week as Monica Crowley and Christopher Cox join John Batchelor in questioning Professor Cohen and discussing the dangers of "Russiagate" and the New Cold War.

This is a very helpful and...

Rolling Rebound

But don't be surprised if The Banks soon fight back.

Wednesday, March 13, 2019 - 10:44am

Prices continue to recover from last week's lows and CoT wash. We hope to extend further from here in preparation for next week's FOMC and CGP press conference.

Isn't it nice to check your prices first thing in the morning and see green instead of red? It always feels like good things...

TFMR Podcast - Tuesday, March 12

Tuesday, March 12, 2019 - 4:55pm

It was an eventful day with more bad economic news, another Brexit vote failure and sharply falling interest rates. No wonder that Comex precious metal prices rallied despite the best efforts of The Banks.

After a general discussion, we proceed to the charts. First a look at the...

More Comex Games

The outrage of fake gold and digitial derivative pricing.

Tuesday, March 12, 2019 - 11:16am

After successfully capping silver through the issuance of 35,000 Comex Digital Silver contracts in February, The Banks are now attempting the same trick in Comex gold. Will they be successful in keeping price below $1300?

"Probably not" is the answer. Even though The Banks have now...

TFMR Podcast - Monday, March 11

Monday, March 11, 2019 - 5:28pm

The week gets off to a comical start as more terrible US economic data sends the stock market soaring while Comex gold and silver are shoved backward.

We begin today with a discussion of these four links:

Fighting The Fight

It's going to be a long week.

Monday, March 11, 2019 - 10:42am

A new week begins and the fight continues. We had a decent bounce back on Friday but, as we expected, The Banks are continuing to stymie price near $1300. This sets up a long week of economic data and other news, all while we struggle for every up tick.

The economic data today was the...

TFMR Podcast - Friday, March 8

Friday, March 8, 2019 - 5:40pm

Once again, it's not you begin the week that matter, it's how you end it.

And boy oh boy, did we ever end the week well! All the doom and gloom of Monday was replaced with today's optimism. Let's now carry this forward into next week and prepare for the March FOMC scheduled for the...

BLSBS Never Disappoints

Your once-a-month clown show strikes again.

Friday, March 8, 2019 - 10:45am

Whether it's an upside or downside surprise, the monthly BLSBS never fails to confound all of the big-time economists of Wall Street. And why? Because it's all just a massive scam of statistical assumptions and guesswork!

So today, with everyone on CNBS predicting a "jobs number" in...
