I am working on a contribution for the blog, but have been called away from my desk for a few hours.

So this is just a note to say I'll post something in the Argentus Maximus blog later.

Miners

Well, mining ETFs anyway...

Looks like NUGT & JNUG are closely following some trendlines up. I interpret that as investors buying every little pullback watching the lower trendline. Seems bullish to me. I'm not comfortable in these ETFs for anything more than a daytrade or overnight trade, selling before the NY opening bell. But I did buy a bit more to hold over the weekend.

COT very positive for both metals...

As conditions in USSA (fiscal, political, social) became more wacky.
Warmongering continues apace.
A poorly managed country indeed. Wit F-35 welfare disaster.

With a 4-year base around 1200-1250 I'm wondering if we aren't getting close to liftoff for new all time highs.
Or can the PTB continue winning with their MOPE (Mgt of Perception Economics) charade?

Triffin's dilemma

Basically says that the sovereign that supplies the reserve currency has to run a trade deficit, since they have to supply increasing currency to the global Central Banks otherwise global trade slumps.

OTOH: Bad money chasing out good is Gresham's law.

Not to be picky Ty, but in an open thread some visitors might suspect that if a significant brain fart is not corrected that we are all fart brains.

@fluxplus....It's possible

The next COT will show...The three-day delay on COT is very deliberate to hide banks intentions.
