I'm glad you've found us. Once again, if you haven't yet watched the introductory video, I encourage you to take the time to do it now:

New Site For TF Metals Report

We've gone to great lengths to get things perfect but, if you notice some typos or if you have suggestions to make the site even better, please contact us through the link in the navigation bar.

Hopefully, the site will run smoothly and the transition from blogspot will be seamless. However, spam and DOS attacks are rather commonplace these days so please try to remain patient if the site encounters any technical difficulties. For example, we've already had someone run an automated program that generated over 250,000 attempts to log/hack into the site while it was under construction. Thankfully, this person wasn't successful but who knows what we'll encounter now that it's live.

Once again, thank you for making this all possible. Let's continue to make this "community" someplace special and unique. Help each other. Treat others the way you wish to be treated. Learn and share.

Now, go explore and have some fun! TF

Hat Tip to the Turd


As a long time lurker (I've been following your tips since ZH) and first time poster, I want to express my sincere gratitude to you for creating a positive site that we all can learn from. Your a lighthouse in this economic storm guiding us ships ("Turdites") to safe harbor. I also want to thank the posters (e.g., atlee, eric#1, ginger, et al) for contributing to the knowledge base. I can only hope that I add value and positive energy to this site as well. The world could certainly use more of it.

I'm In!

At last! At long last!!! I followed Turd over here from ZH a long time ago but was unable to get on to the old site. So, this is good news and I look forward to being able to participate now.

Thanks Turd!

Does anybody have any thoughts about when might be the cheapest day to buy July 16 calls and puts? I have often heard it said that the Monday after Options Expiration is the best day (that would be this coming Monday), but I personally do not seem to be able to validate that theory when it comes to SLV calls and puts. From following Turd, it seems to me that he buys at his set price targets and not necessarily on any particular day or time of the month. Basically I'm trying to decide when to buy and would appreciate any thoughts.
