Bull Market Games

The Banks are up to their usual tricks.

The new day dawns with the Comex metals trading in much the same manner as they have for the past few weeks...with the regular imposition of the Never, Ever, Ever, Ever, Ever Rule.

If you're new to TFMR, perhaps you're unaware of the "NEEEE Rule". No, it's not named after legendary...

The Banks Fight At $15.80

Get ready. It's going to be like this all year.

This is so freaking obvious and ridiculous that I thought it deserved its own post. What's even more ridiculous is the amount of shills and charlatans who still publicly cling to the silly notion that the Comex silver market is a free and fair marketplace for physical price discovery.

Our friends John Batchelor and Professor Stephen F. Cohen kicked off the new year last evening with their first podcast of 2019. We've been diligently posting these weekly discussions for nearly five years now and we will continue to post them for as long as John and Steve continue to record...

Ahead Of The Minutes

A great start to the day but beware the Fed reversal two-step.

Wednesday, January 9, 2019 - 10:28am

The "stock market" is up 10% sonce the arrival of the PPT on December 26. It's up 5% since CGP gave his speech in Atlanta last Friday. Therefore, what to expect when the minutes of the December FOMC are finally released at 2:00 pm EST today? Are CDG and CDS being allowed to rise only so they...

An Eye On The Yuan-Gold "Peg"

It's time for an update and a reconsideration.

Tuesday, January 8, 2019 - 11:02am
By

No, we haven't forgotten about this issue in the excitement of the year-end and Q1 rally. There has just been a lot of other stuff to discuss. So today let's take a minute to revisit the "peg" and see if it still holds relevance.

Again, we wrote about this repeatedly in the second half...

All Hands On Deck

The trading year of 2019 officially begins today.

2019 officially begins today as everyone from traders to investors to Bank Monkeys are back at work and ready to roll. What will this mean for the POSX? What will this mean for the stock and bond markets? And most importantly, what will this mean for Comex gold and silver?

Let's start...

BLSBSLOLHAHAHA

We don't call it the BLSBS for nothing.

From seemingly out of the blue and against all odds, the BLSBS today came in with the largest "job gains" since June of 2016...just in time to send the "stock market" surging and Comex gold crashing. As if we've never seen this movie before...

You know, when CDG tapped $1300 last...

How 'Bout Them Apples?

The stockroaches eagerly await another PPT stick save.

Some terrible forward guidance from Apple and a forex flash crash have combined today to create a toxic stew for the stockroaches, who are left hoping for another PPT intervention to save the day.

By now, you likely know all about what happened late yesterday so let's just skip...

A Green Start

Gold is hot and green start is always better than a red start!

It's always a good sign to begin the new year with an UP day...well, at least it's not a bad sign.

And that's where we are as 2019 begins. Comex gold traded has mostly traded higher since trading resumed last evening. Comex silver was initially pillaged for nearly 1% but it has since...

Charts Into Year End

The Comex metals continue to shine.

It's Thursday afternoon and I thought that, with today's bounce back rally in the Comex metals, we should update the charts and give you some levels to watch into Friday's close.

First of all, I do not plan to have any posts or podcasts tomorrow. As we mentioned yesterday, there won't...

“I am bringing you good news of great joy for all the people: to you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, who is the Messiah, the Lord.”

About the time of the annunciation by Gabriel one night, a more subtle message was sent through the stars, a message those shepherds...

Shutdown Friday

Even more uncertainty enters the picture.

Yes, there's a looming US government shutdown but I'm more concerned with a holiday shutdown. It has been a long year and we're all ready for it to be over. So let's get through this day and then go enjoy some holiday time with family and friends.

Let's begin with that US government...

Roaring Back

We sure didn't have to wait long for that bounce and recovery!

Yesterday's podcast has proven prescient as the Comex metals come roaring back today. And just as we've been expecting for weeks, our year end and Q1 rally seems well underway, too. So, today, let's take a look around to assess the entire situation and then seek to find some levels to watch...

CGP's Big Day

What to expect at 2:00 EST today.

Wednesday, December 19, 2018 - 10:17am

Here comes Chief Goon Powell. The day revolves around him. Thus this brief post to help you kill the time.

Again, all the fun begins at 2:00 pm EST. As we discussed yesterday, I fully expect a 25 basis point fed funds rate hike followed by a set of fedlines that suddenly seem "dovish"...

All eyes will be on Chief Goon Powell and his FOMC come Wednesday. But there's a lot going on between now and then, too.

So off we go with what might be the most consequential week of the year...and it's week 51 of 52! What will CGP do? More importantly, what will he and his band of...

The week looks to end on a sour note but all eyes begin to look forward to next week, which promises to be quite eventful and volatile.

But let's begin today with this...

The Count and The CNY

A lower euro means a higher dollar.

Thursday, December 13, 2018 - 10:32am
By

Count Draghi flapped his gums earlier and this, combined with more trade war concerns, has sent Comex gold lower today as we watch and wait for next week's FOMC.

So, The Count crawled from his crypt today to declare an end to ECBQE...at least the printing of euro part. On its surface,...
