Holiday Doldrums

Things are already beginning to slow down ahead of Thursday's US market holiday.

Tuesday, July 2, 2019 - 11:00am

Things are already beginning to slow down ahead of Thursday's US market holiday. The NYSE will close early tomorrow and the Comex will shut down, too, so beware of some light-volume volatility in the hours ahead.

Again, the NYSE will close at 1:00 pm ET tomorrow. The Comex will close...

Trade Truce

But remember, it's not how you begin the week that matters.

Monday, July 1, 2019 - 8:03am

Saturday's news from the G-20 that Trump and Xi had made "progress" predictably sent Comex gold reeling last evening. However, other "markets" impacted by the news have already begun to turn back around so the Sunday jolt to gold may not be long term.

By now you've likely seen the G-20...

Working Off The Overboughtedness

It's just a normal part of a bull market.

Thursday, June 27, 2019 - 10:02am

"Overboughtedness" is a term we use to describe a market where massive runs have led to a surge in sentiment, a buying exhaustion and a peak in the RSI. This describes Monday's Comex Digital Gold quite well and we are working off this overboughtedness again today.

The "fundamental"...

JBSFC Ahead Of The G-20

Wednesday, June 26, 2019 - 11:22am

With the G-20 meeting looming for this weekend, Batchelor and Cohen bring you up-to-speed on what to watch when Trump meets Putin and when Trump meets Xi.

John and Steve take care to remind you of the Russian and Chinese perspective in all of this. How does Eurasia fit into the picture...


The trauma of the past six years is apparent.

Wednesday, June 26, 2019 - 10:57am

The price of Comex gold is now down about $30 from its peak of yesterday. And, apparently, that's it. We're now doomed. Price is heading the triple digits. Sell everything and buy dollars.

At least that's what I'm reading on Twitter and on various sites where alleged "experts"...

Rolling Along

The gold train keeps chugging.

Tuesday, June 25, 2019 - 9:42am

Comex Digital Gold continued higher last evening but was once again stalled and reversed during the London Monkey session. Back on Friday, price quickly recovered the same type of losses. Can it do so again today?

But at some point, this has to slow down. Though the chart below makes...

Long, Strange Week Ahead

And it leads into quarter end, too.

Monday, June 24, 2019 - 10:22am

It is going to be another busy and interesting week. Between the continuing surge in gold, the unpredictable nature of geo-politics and the Jul19 Comex silver option expiration, we've got a long, strange trip ahead.

And that term applies to my personal odyssey this week, as well....

The Gold Shuffle

Some pragmatism is necessary.

Friday, June 21, 2019 - 9:53am

It has been so long that you may have forgotten how bull markets in gold operate. Because The Banks will always fight us tick-for-tick, you must never expect a straight up move. Instead, Comex gold will always move up in stages.

We've referred to this before as two-steps-forward-and-...


Smiles all around.

Thursday, June 20, 2019 - 10:55am

Maybe. Probably. But, in the end, it doesn't matter much as price was/is going to finally break out this year anyway as 2019 continues to unfold in a manner that closely resembles 2010.

So, anyway, by now you know what took place overnight so there's no BREAKING NEWS here. At around 9:...

An Update From Batchelor and Cohen

Another vital update on The New Cold War

Wednesday, June 19, 2019 - 4:47pm

It has been three weeks so I'm dying to listen to this latest edition. However, it has been such a busy day that I have to post this "sound unheard".

As always, I encourage you to listen simply so that you receive some actual fair, balanced and objective coverage of US-Russia relations...
