A Very Interesting Morning

Interest rates and the USDJPY are both falling today and, with no Fed Goon speeches on the docket, it will be interesting to see how the day unfolds. More importantly, CDG is up modestly and moving toward our goal of $1260 and another test of the 200-day moving average.

Neo-McCarthyism with Batchelor and Cohen

Your graduate-level History and Foreign Affairs course continued last night as Batchelor and Cohen discussed the growing Russophobia in Washington and how the current situation is beginning to resemble the McCarthy, "red-baiting" days of the early 1950s.

Comex Digital Silver Moves Above Its 50-Day Moving Average

A very positive sign this morning as Comex Silver has moved back above its 50-day MA, successfully reclaiming ground lost during the latest Fed Goon Jawboning Event in the run-up to last week's FOMC rate hike.

Oh Mother, Where Art Thou?

Thank goodness it's finally FOMC Fedlines day and the sole remaining question is if Mother will only raise the Fed Funds rate by 25 bps. If she does, it will be very important to keep in mind that the gold price bottomed the day following the FOMC hikes of the past two Decembers, not the day before.

Cartel Doing Their Business

It was a brutal day of direct, Cartel price capping and raiding ahead of tomorrow's FOMC Fedlines.
