Let's Return To The Gold Standard

Last week, I was perusing the latest issue of The American Spectator (yes, I'm a subscriber and have been since 1994). In it I found a terrific article about returning to The Gold Standard.

Turd 2012

Sorry for the late start this morning. The Turd is just a bit under the weather and moving somewhat slowly. I've noticed, however, that our "markets" don't seem to care. They always seem to go about their business whether or not I'm at my post.

A Warning Flag For Silver

As you know, I'm very excited about the prospects for the fiat-conversion price of silver this year. It's going to a big year, perhaps even historic. That does not mean, however, that silver will move in a straight line up.

However, a careful review of the situation at ground level leads me to think that we're not out of the woods yet.

Today is particularly challenging in this regard. Please bear with me.

A Miner Key - Turd's Latest Thinking on Gold and Silver Miners

I've received quite a few requests lately for some technical analysis of some of our favorite gold and silver miners. Fortunately, today, I finally had some time to actually do the work necessary to write one. Here you go!

The Impenetrable 1750

This is the first of two posts today as I try to get caught up from yesterday. The metals have rallied nicely while The Pig has fallen but, of course, the question is: What happens next?

Quick Chart Update

As the POSX breaks down, the metals are charging higher. Here are some updated charts.

All Eyes On The Pig

Lots of thisses and thats today regarding the precious metals. I suppose that some commentary has merit but, really, it's all about The Pig.
