Starting Fresh

The updated TFMR is up and running!

As you've no doubt noticed, the revamped TFMR is a complex beast. There are all sorts of updates and added capabilities and this will make the experience for all of us here even better.

The old site was built on a Drupal platform in 2011 and a lot has changed over the years as technology has surged forward. Think of trying to use your 2011 Blackberry to access all of 2018's apps and websites. Going forward, our new site will eliminate the issues we've had with Apple products. It was also end the frustrating cycle of forced logins/logouts. It also has complete mobile capability. And a whole bunch more new stuff that I don't even know about yet.

So, thank you for your patience as we work out the bugs and get acquainted with everything. New and improved can sometimes feel frustrating and unnecessary, however, in this case, it was completely necessary and worthwhile.

As you know, I'm away from Turdfork this weekend as MrsF and I are visiting LT#1 at college. (And boy-oh-boy do I have a raging headache today from too many beers at the local Oktoberfest last evening!) I had promised everyone a podcast this morning but, frankly, I don't know yet how to post one! So, just this quick update.

In Comex gold, It was great to see price close at $1230 yesterday. That's another GREEN weekly candle and maintaining above $1200 and $1220 is very important in terms of a bullish/hopeful chart configuration. For next week, the goal remains a close above the 100-day moving average and then $1240 as this will engender even more Spec short-covering.

And as you can see on the gold CoT below, a MASSIVE move in Spec short-covering already took place back on Thursday the 11th when price surged through the 50-day and ended up $34 on the day. We'll discuss this more on Monday.

In Comex silver, that reverse H&S we've been discussing continue to trace out. On the weekly chart, getting back above and staying back above $14.50 is seemingly an important development. As expected, the move in the silver CoT wasn't nearly as dramatic as it was in gold.

Again, thank you for your patience as we get restarted and Ron and his team work out any kinks that suddenly appear. Have a great weekend and I look forward to next week.

Ronnie 666, let me know if you can see comments in a few minutes. If so, this has to do with spam filtering.

are you guys planning to port over the subscription/billing stuff. my account says i have no subscription and i don't know when mine ends

You can't unmute yourself,

You can't unmute yourself, because that would be the same as allowing you to unmute yourself from someone who has muted you.

Two things we need to do:

1) Remove the mute link when someone is viewing their own profile, so you can't accidentally mute yourself.

2) Remove the record from the back-end so you no longer are muted.

Give us a few and we'll get that resolved. I will post a message once it has been fixed, thanks.

So, when coming back to a

So, when coming back to a thread you have to "scan" all comments from the beginning?

This comment is on page 2 (at least it was when typing). If I leave the current thread and check yesterday's thread for missed comments, you have to start at the beginning? Then come back to the current thread and scan from the beginning also?

How can someone skip to unread or is this not possible anymore?
