Playing Catch Up

A 3-day weekend leads to a 4-day week.

Tuesday, February 18, 2020 - 10:19am

After a market holiday Monday, the US markets are playing a bit of catch up today as things move fast with the virus pandemic continuing to worsen around the globe.

Where do we even start on a Tuesday? The virus news is bad but that's likely something you already know. So let's start...

Another Three-Day Weekend

Friday, February 14, 2020 - 11:06am

As the US barrels toward another three-day holiday weekend, it will be quite interesting to see how the "markets" trade today. The news is pretty bad across the board so let's watch to see what gets sold and what gets bought before the close this afternoon.

Let's begin today with the...

The Relentless March Of The Machines

Nothing can stop them.

Thursday, February 13, 2020 - 11:49am

Nothing can stop them. They are seemingly programed to buy every dip. No news or headline can get in their way.

It has been a long morning and, as such, this late brief post. Why? I had my annual physical exam today, complete with blood draws, EKG, the one-finger handshake...the whole...

Moron Not-QE

This really isn't complicated.

Wednesday, February 12, 2020 - 10:58am

This topic continues to come up in every interview this year so let's discuss it again this morning.

First of all, understand that The Fed is (in)directly monetizing the debt. Take, for example, air travel. If you are in San Diego and you wish to fly to Minot, you won't be able to find...

CGP on Capitol Hill

It's another purple tie day!

Tuesday, February 11, 2020 - 10:19am

So far, it appears that the semi-annual appearance of Chief Goon Powell on Capitol Hill may come off without any damage. But be mindful of this today as these events have often been used in the past as cover for a raid.

My goodness, how many times back in the day did we see the metals...

Back To Work

And it's going to be a long week.

Monday, February 10, 2020 - 10:59am

As the new work week begins for the precious metals, the larger question is whether or not the work week has begun in China, where it was expected that today would be "back-to-work day" for the virus zone.

So was it? As with everything else over there, it's hard to tell. Via Twitter, I...

Worse By The Day

Friday, February 7, 2020 - 10:39am

Not too long ago, this was the only type of Corona that ever entered my mind. Oh the simple days of 2019. Where have ye gone?

Oh crap. The news just gets worse by the day. But look, I'm not particularly concerned for myself or my family...though I'm building a stockpile of N95 masks...

Biding Time

But keep in mind that tomorrow is BLSBS Day.

Thursday, February 6, 2020 - 10:53am

The Comex Digital Metals are bouncing today after once again holding support following an early week beatdown. Sound familiar? It should. Nearly every week in 2020 has played out in much the same fashion.

And why the bounce? Price is responding to the resurgence of the two primary...

A Shining Example

But also just another day in AlgoHell.

Wednesday, February 5, 2020 - 11:09am

Too often now do we get glaring examples of just how utterly messed up our "markets" are. And, boy oh boy, did we ever get one earlier today. We call it "AlgoHell" and we are all living in it.

Shirtly after 2:o0 am CST, a headline was printed by Reuters. It stated:
