Stimulate This

More debt for an out-of-control system.

Wednesday, January 15, 2020 - 10:33am

Things were sailing along just fine this morning until news broke that Trump is considering an "election year stimulus plan". The Machines immediately began to sell gold but, since we are not machines, at TFMR we will consider the real world implications of this plan.

For now, it's all...

Guest Post: "2020 - The Year of Living Dangerously", by Jim Quinn

Tuesday, January 14, 2020 - 9:35pm

Please be sure to read the latest from Jim Quinn of The Burning Platform.

As you likely recall, I first met Jim in 2012 and have been a fan of his ever since. Occasionally, he writes "big picture" articles that focus upon society, the economy and the Fourth Turning. This latest, a look...

It's Only Another Tuesday

Keep your eyes on the prize.

Tuesday, January 14, 2020 - 9:54am

After ten consecutive green candles, an RSI peak of 83 and about $80 of war premium, no one should be surprised that Comex gold has continued to fall this week and we'd warned you on several occasions that this was a likelihood if/when the war tensions simmered down. So now let's take some time...

The New Week Begins

The old adage comes to mind...

Monday, January 13, 2020 - 10:00am

A new week begins and it will be a busy one. Not only are there lingering war fears, there will be renewed talk of "trade optimism" and a boatload of daily economic datapoints.

So we know where price is to begin the week. The question, of course, is where will price end the week?...

Shooting For An Up Week

The climb continues.

Friday, January 10, 2020 - 11:12am

It was been one heck of a crazy and volatile week and I, for one, am glad to see it coming to an end. What's most interesting, however, is that today's lousy BLSBS has given us a shot at ending with green candles on the weekly chart and that would be a very pleasant development.

So let...

Working It Off

This is not complicated.

Thursday, January 9, 2020 - 10:27am

Not in the Richard Simmons sense. Instead and as expected, precious metal prices are working off the "war premium" that was added between Friday and Tuesday.

It is CRITICAL that you understand this because I'm seeing all sorts of nonsense and deliberately-written bullshit on Twitter...

What A Night For A Nightmare

Wednesday, January 8, 2020 - 10:11am

So, is that it? Is it over? Have the MENA and world walked to the edge of the abyss, looked over and then walked back? Let's hope that's the case and we should know more as the day progresses.

As of 9:30 ET, here's where things stand...

Here We Go With Tuesday

Our stacks get even more shiny.

Tuesday, January 7, 2020 - 11:13am

A new day dawns with all of the same concerns in place. And you can see this reflected in Comex gold, which is back above $1570 as I type.

With relative calm prevailing in the MENA yesterday, there was a growing sense of relief that perhaps the region would step back from the abyss. At...

2020 Foresight

A look ahead to a volatile but profitable year.

Monday, January 6, 2020 - 11:35am

The year 2019 unfolded just about as predicted in our annual look-ahead post entitled "2010+9". And that's nice. But it's all for naught if we fail to correctly forecast where we go from here. With that in mind, here's a first look at what to expect in 2020.

These annual forecasts are...

Red Flag Day

Taken out by a wave, where we've never been before.

Monday, January 6, 2020 - 10:10am

And not just for high winds. It's going to be a long and volatile week and, of course, it's not how you begin the week that matters. At the same time and looking ahead, no one knows how the entire world may look by week end so let's be sure to stay alert and aware.

My hope is that you'...
