Good for you, Dr, J...

I still like the Beatles classics. Well done! Hope our fearless leader; who will only be 50 one time; is enjoying himself. God knows we've all suffered enough the last 5 years.

Thanks for your time and thoughts!

EDIT: What is "denouement" ?

Marchas45 · Jan 15, 2016 - 7:57pm

Yea Dr J

Now to listen, Keep Stacking

Dr.J you need to do a video and wear your tin foil hat and call yourself the Metal Prof. the Truth Behind the Curtain..

Also never ever have a phone nearby when your recording unless your still trading. Lol

A theatrical term that refers to the "falling action" after the climax, at the end of the play--catharsis.--helps the audience unwind after all the high drama before things are totally over. Kind of like snuggling after ... Ooops I almost forgot about our young audiences...

Marchas: good advice! I assure that was my brother-in-law, not a margin call.

Marchas45's spot

Since Marchas45 took first tonight, I don't feel bad about taking 4th.

Yep, bad day to quit sniffing glue.

Thank you Dr J.

Thank you Dr J.

I am now complete!

Good stuff

Thoroughly enjoyed the podcast. 

cashonly · Jan 15, 2016 - 8:56pm

nice podcast

I am shocked TPTB didn't hold the 16,000 'maginot line' today - only 12 pts under too. Makes my tinfoil hat ring with wonderment if are telegraphing: "we are letting it go".

Dr. Jerome, I love you!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks for all you do to enlighten us.

I never realized what having a loved one with cancer does to a family. It is a a trial I never hope to experience again. It sucks the joy right out of individuals and puts them on a roller coaster ride that just may end with a terrible crash. That is why I haven't been around much. So if you can say a prayer for my husband I would really appreciate it.

Now to life on the farm...

The welfare deer are back and they are getting good, organic alfalfa from me. With the forest fires, drought, and snow there is very little food for them to eat. And there is no way I am going to have starving animals around if I can help them. So they come timidly at first, then with more and more confidence as they know that every evening there will be food for them. Most folks are feeding them "Deer Corn." I do not because it is GMO corn, and you all have heard my rants about that.

They sure are pretty with their big brown eyes!

I am only milking one goat as the buck I borrowed last year shot blanks, and only one of the three I hoped to get pregnant did so. But she is making up for being the only one. It is cold here. We went three + weeks without it getting over freezing (32 degrees) during the day. So I had a real temper tantrum when my milking room was only 11 degrees. The goat was shivering, I was shivering, and the milk room heater I received for Christmas did absolutely nothing. But I had to milk, because we are using the milk to make yogurt.

A friend showed up yesterday with a gorgeous buckling to help me get new babies this summer. I received a phone call and twenty minutes later he delivered a prize buckling. This is not your normal buckling, but one with 17 generations of A++ registered does on top of him. He's from the Wyoming Milk Project and cost the owner thousands of dollars. I am getting all my does pregnant as the sale of the babies should pay for next year's alfalfa and then some extra for barley. There is one drawback, they will be born in June, just when I am needed for gardening. And if I am milking the does, the babies will need to be bottle fed. That is a chore.

But there is good news. A friend did a study on who survives the demise of an empire from Rome to Greece to Spain, etc. Since we are in the midst of such a demise, I thought I would share his results.


So, if you want to make it through the nightmare that is ahead of us all, become a Goat Herder. Simple...

If this born and raised city girl can do it, you can, too.

yahoo finance is on the cutting edge .... hahaha

"Friday, New York Fed President William C. Dudley said he sees the U.S. economy continuing a strong growth trajectory this year, supporting further interest-rate increases"...


Thanks for the pod cast Dr J!

lakedweller2 · Jan 15, 2016 - 10:28pm

Dr J

One always wonders about the voice associated with the words. Thanks for the voice and words... They both express trust... Looking for more.

Your reality continues to be refreshing

@ lakedweller2

Thank You Sir!

Mr. Fix · Jan 15, 2016 - 10:54pm

Obama said everything's fine

The only possible translation is we are royally screwed.

The plunge protection team will only be used now to manage the descent, but with global trade at a virtual standstill, the direction is clear. A complete and utter collapse of our system is the intended goal, with as much carnage as possible.

They know where the stops are, and they will run them in both directions. This is not a good way to make money for us,

I prefer to work for living, and stack real money for the future. None of the paper crap will be worth anything soon.

I don't think think they're even concerned about the gold & silver markets. After the markets crash, and the banks close, no one will have any money to buy the precious metals anymore anyway.

As I've been saying for the past few years, gold and silver will be locked down until AFTER the system implodes.

It is now imploding.

It would be wise to prepare for the worst, and leave your precious metals at the bottom of your local lake, until a new system has been established.

They might be worth something then.

Surviving the interim will be the most important thing.

Great job Dr. J, I enjoyed that.

Time to put my tinfoil hat back on.

ReachWest · Jan 15, 2016 - 11:06pm

Friday Evening Awesomeness.

Beatles!! Awesome. Thanks Dr J!

Great podcast. Glad to hear that that was not a photo of you catching knives. I'm a bit squeamish when it comes to knife wounds.

I believe Mrs Dr J is correct, the Beatles lyrics are "Day Tripper" .. but hey .. close enough to "day trader" for me.

lakedweller2 · Jan 15, 2016 - 11:35pm


My mother died at 100. She lived with us the last 3 years. Only the last few weeks she was a burden. We were lucky but we know it could have been worse for years. It is very difficult to care for those we love seeing them in a weakened state and not the focal point for wisdom that we always felt comfort from. Character takes control...most likely inherited and/or conditioned character. It is not a burden as you have expressed (sounded wrong ... Agreeing with your strength)..but it is so difficult to see the erosion of magic and never seeing those tricks materialize again. As life moves on and days or weeks or years later, that magic pops up in either voice or action and you will feel the legacy.

lakedweller2 · Jan 15, 2016 - 11:40pm

@Dr J

Disappointed that knife was not in your hand. I think there would have been many students with a "life story" if you had waved that around for a 50 minute lecture.

Love your post!

Thanks Dr. J. I did miss the boioioinnngggs of Turd but other than that I look forward hearing you again!

Nice longer view perspectives. Stones are out of my pockets. Just hoping this balloon I have invested in will take off.

Dr J

Gotta have a podcast to end the day (for some reason I feel the day is not complete without). Perfect way to end a crazy week. 

Thank You!

The Beatles were a little before my time, but I do enjoy the tunes.

Daaaay Trader!

Open question re: PPT (weekend game theory puzzle)

A: the PPT intervenes in an otherwise legitimate market?


B: The Market (charts) is a programmed hoax, and "the PPT" is merely the official explanation for the "no way in hell this is a market" prices displayed on the charts?

- - - - - 

deductive(?)- If the PPT is the ultimate price setter then that would put them in a more powerful position than those who own the markets. If the PPT were more powerful than the market owners, the PPT would remain in the shadows and the 'fake chart owners' would be the media's explanation for the "no way in hell this is a market" prices.

inductive(?)- everything we seen for the past several years indicates that the bankers who own and run the "markets" and charts are in complete control (any manipulation including fake charts are legal since the 1930s) are untouchable by any government entity (tbtf). this points to the conclusion that the silver and gold chart data is Bernie Madoffed (who for years also claimed his numbers came from HFT Algos before he confessed they were fake)

Sensory- All of TFMR saw the Silver phyzz demand increase when the chart bottomed in 2013. All of TFMR has watched the silver chart react higher to phyzz demand increases 7+ times since June 2013. these silver chart reactions were experienced and observed and documented repeatedly, right here around the TFMR table.

these lines of reasoning and observable events indicate B: The Market (charts) is a programmed hoax, and "the PPT" is merely the official explanation for the "no way in hell this is a market" prices displayed on the charts?

From a practical standpoint, what does it matter?? Well, it matters because hoaxes end much differently than things that are manipulated.

It matters to anyone who wants to put themselves and their loved ones in the best possible position. Not just monetarily, but more important -mentally and -emotionally.

A lifetime of PM induced wealth won't be comforting to the confused and angry who are still positioneed to learn the hard way that this whole thing is a hoax.

A: or B: ?? All analysis implies one position or the other. Yet i'm the only one who says B: ...and the only one to provide evidence for their position. All others imply that the charts are the result of traded markets, yet not one of that multitude has ever been able to produce even one piece of objective verifiable evidence to support their beliefs.

There has been a lot of talk the past few days from "market" miner "traders". Surely they believe that the market charts are the result of trading. (something that the PPT could intervene in) Their reasons for believing in the markets would be very helpful in my making the case for A:. otherwise, i got nothin

lakedweller2 · Jan 16, 2016 - 1:45am


Isn't it the same if two systems control what is outside of all of us. Why does it mattet if both manipulate reality. Lose lose.

stackaloha · Jan 16, 2016 - 2:42am

I don't chime in often

But I'll chime in now:

"it took me soooo-ooo-ooo-oooo loooong to find out,

and I found out"

great job Dr. Jerome! I love me some Turd but you are certainly a man of the "Turdite" people!

i have recently renewed my yearly subscription to this site, I've been lurking. Sometimes I cheer, sometimes I jeer. What's a working man to do? I stack a bit, although I must've shot my mouth off too much because someone broke into my rig recently and stole the whole kit-n-kabootle... Very very disheartening, 600ish zones of AG and one oz of AU... I'm just a poor guy so having my stack stolen wasn't as much as if it had happened to many of you. People can't be trusted, I messed up.

I had some miners looking for a January rally. So far not so good. I can't win lately. I did buy some calls for jan 2017 on GG, NEM, ABX, NGD, also jan 2018 on AG. I figure that way it gives time to develop which is probably better than dealing with 3x levered ETF's imho. If they pop up this year and I can pull some profit, I will exit and roll over to a future expiration date of January xxxx (2018+?) to limit my risk. With that being said, it's just what I am doing, it isn't advice. The nice part though is that I don't have to hover over my keyboard sweating! Also, if there is a MAJOR move, I can exercise the option if that is the best play.

Regular equities? I sold Uvxy this week for 15% gain and i'm waiting to see what this next week will bring. I'm definitely trying to limit risk but if we get a nice rally I will be trying to cherry pick longish term puts on companies if the price is right.

 I had absolutely no idea of about markets when I found this place and although I seem to lose more than I win, I do learn. My time is coming, no education is free. Losing my stack sucked but I will try to replace it, all I can tell myself is that I can buy at better prices now, what else can I do?

cheers and good luck to all

Sorry to hear about your metal, stackaloha. That's gotta hurt more than just losing fiat value through the manipualtion.

ned braden Doctor J · Jan 16, 2016 - 10:43am

In keeping with the spirit and author of this podcast.....

Here's to you, Dr. J

A Beatles tune from a superb tribute band..... Dr. Robert!

@Dr. J.

What a pleasant surprise this morning. Thoroughly enjoyed your podcast, thank you!

they only have the power to manipulate your reality if you let them.

You have all the power, but only if you use it!
