Starting Fresh

Sat, Oct 20, 2018 - 12:06pm

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.

Hans Wee, we ported over

Hans Wee, we ported over expiration dates, so your subscription is good until the next time you are scheduled to renew.

We could not port billing information, since the payment processor has changed. They do not allow customer data to be moved from one company to another since they have to follow strict PCI compliance laws.

You will receive an email from the system letting you know that your subscription has ended, and at that time you can visit the subscribe page and re-connect:

Firstly congrats on getting

Firstly congrats on getting the new site up and running. It seems that the previous ability to jump to new unread comments is the major complaint about the new site. If I understand correctly the problem is that this feature does not scale. Would it be possible to institute a compromise where the feature is available each day on the new posts from midnight to midnight in, I guess, the US Central time zone? Thus the data would be saved for only 24 hours max and then dumped for the new 24 hour data. This would I think allow everyone to use the feature as previously since you know if you've entirely missed a week of posts and would not be a data hog.

Admin, I noticed you have a yellow name field, I'd like to have purple please.

We were given a little kitten

We were given a little kitten who had a viral disease. We took it to the Vet. That is how we know the disease is a virus, not a bacterial infection.

We have been giving this kitten dropper fulls of ASAP HEALTH MAX 30 SILVER SUPPLEMENT. The Vet said that we were doing the right thing, as antibiotics will not touch viral infections.

So our new little kitten is going to live! This is a very good thing as he has already inched his way into our hearts.

So this is just another reason to like/purchase metals. I rarely go to the doctor. I don't need to as I now have colloidal silver to use when the need arises.
