Another Busy Week Begins

Monday, April 1, 2019 - 10:00am

It's BLSBS week again? Jeezo, where does the time go? And there will be all sorts of other datapoints this week so buckle in for another wild ride.

The string of data kicked off earlier today with the release of the February US retail sales number. This was supposed to show a bounce...

So What Really Happened Yesterday?

An explanation of the "why" and "how".

Friday, March 29, 2019 - 10:51am

Of course, when dealing with the deliberately opaque LBMA/Comex system, no one can ever say for certain. But the clues are there, however, and if you know how to interpret them, you can begin to piece it together. So that's what we'll do here this morning.

And this shouldn't take long...


Today is a good day to consider all possibilities.

Thursday, March 28, 2019 - 10:17am

The word "ridiculousness" is a creation of MrsF. It's appropriate to use today as here we are again with the bullshit getting piled on so heavily that it's difficult to stay engaged.

So greetings from my local coffee shop. The internet service at Turdfork remains severed so maybe I...

JBSFC and The Demise of Russiagate

Another must listen lesson in Cold War history.

Wednesday, March 27, 2019 - 4:21pm

With the salient components of the Russiagate conspiracy theory now disproven, John and Steve take time to offer another history lesson. This time they focus upon the history of global electoral intervention/interference by Americans.

Again, since you simply won't find this type of...

Bond Market Bidness

Again we ask, what is the bond market telling you?

Wednesday, March 27, 2019 - 10:13am

Things are getting crazier by the day in the US bond market, where rates have collapsed in the week since Chief Goon Powell and his FOMC announced their latest capitulation to the forces The Fed unleashed a decade ago.

Sometimes when I prepare to type posts like this, I fear that I'm...

Ruby Tuesday

In a stunning development, prices are falling on Comex option expiration day.

Tuesday, March 26, 2019 - 10:42am

It's truly a Ruby Tuesday as we have red across the board this morning.

And why? Well, the stage was set overnight for a pullback and now it has come with slightly higher US rates and US$, along with a green "stock market". However, we were up $21 following the FOMC last week and now...

Monday, Monday

The trends from last week continue into this week.

Monday, March 25, 2019 - 10:47am

Monday, Monday, so good to me.
Monday mornin´, it was all I hoped it would be.
Oh Monday mornin´, Monday mornin´ couldn't guarantee...that we'd finish the week as well as it has begun.

It's always nice to begin the week well but we will, of course, remind you of the old...

Going Our Way

Things are going my way, going your way, going OUR way.

Friday, March 22, 2019 - 10:39am

As 2019 plays out almost precisely as planned, the time is now to prepare...both financially and mentally...for all that is coming later this year and next.

Again, if you need a refresher, here's your roadmap for 2019 that was published back in January:

Rollback Thursday

The more things change, the more they stay the same.

Thursday, March 21, 2019 - 10:24am

Following CGP's capitulation yesterday, the price of gold exposure hit $1320 overnight. But then the POSX began to rally and The Banks took over. And now we're back to $1314. This is still positive, however, and certainly preferable to the alternative.

Here's your main culprit and we...

Must Listen Batchelor-Cohen

PLEASE be sure to listen this week.

Wednesday, March 20, 2019 - 12:55pm

We've been posting these weekly podcasts for over five years now and each week we exhort you to listen. Well, this week we REALLY mean it. If you want a fair and objective explanation of HOW the New Cold War has driven us to a VERY dangerous place, this is the podcast you need to hear....
