Thursday Conversation - Ned Naylor-Leyland

A discussion of gold, the LBMA and Brexit.

With

Our old pal, NN-L took his turn today in the Thursday Conversation hot seat.

It's always fun to get caught up with Ned. He's a tireless advocate of sound money and a great ally in our fight against the current system and The Banks.

For this particular discussion, I asked Ned...

Introducing ONEGOLD

Another weapon in the fight against The Banks and a great alternative to GLD and SLV.

Here's another weapon in the fight against The Banks and a great alternative to GLD and SLV. Please take a few minutes to listen to this podcast with Ken Lewis, CEO of APMEX.

We are very pleased to announce an advertising sponsorship for this new product from APMEX called ONEGOLD. With...

Chief Goon Powell's Conundrum

CGP has painted himself into a corner.

By

What to do if you are an overpaid, ivory-tower Fed Head? You want to keep raising the fed funds rate in order to benefit your owners but, at the same time, your higher rates are driving your stock market lower. Again, what to do, what to do?

Below you can see El Problemo. When the...

TFMR Podcast - Wednesday, November 14

A rotting apple infects the "stock market".

With

It was an extraordinarily busy day as we saw a rotting apple infect the "stock market" and lead to a bounce in the Comex precious metals.

We begin today by asking you to listen to the ONEGOLD podcast on the homepage. Please also be sure to review this week's article for Sprott:...

Spec Shorting Continues

The Specs are being set up again.

By

It may not be any sort of trend-breaking move but the Spec shorts are being set up again for another squeeze. It's simply a matter of when.

You'll recall that we first wrote about this two weeks ago, right before Halloween:...

TFMR Podcast - Tuesday, November 13

Prices mostly held form today but the utter collapse in crude oil likely doesn't bode well for tomorrow.

But after a general discussion, we begin today with the usual suspects...the S&P, the POSX and the USDCNH:...

The Masses Move Short

"The Computers" would be more accurate.

By

A flood of new Spec money is flowing into the short side of both Comex gold and Comex silver. I wonder how that's going to work out for them?

Before we get started, thanks again to everyone for your patience and understanding yesterday. Though I'm a little stiff after repeatedly...

Armistice Day

A good day to maintain perspective.

By

Today is the observed holiday of Veteran's Day in the US. I think the best quote I've seen regarding this holiday is "the best way to honor veterans is to stop creating them". I think we can all agree on that.

And this means that it's another of one those partial market holidays. The...

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.

By

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.

By

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.

By

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.

By

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.

By

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.

4

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....
