Month End Monday

Monday, August 31, 2020 - 10:46am

It's the last day of August and the Summer Doldrums officially end tomorrow. It may still technically be The Dog Days, but with the monthly charts about to be painted, there's certainly no shortage of stuff to write about.

And it's going to be a busy week, too. Today is a UK holiday so...

Two Interviews From Last Week

Saturday, August 29, 2020 - 9:18am

It's always fun to be on The Keiser Report as well as the X22 Report. Here's a free thread that contains both links.

Both of these interviews were recorded back on Tuesday but were just released either late yesterday or early today. We discuss Powell and his impending policy change as...

Dancing In September

Friday, August 28, 2020 - 11:02am

Finally and at long last, the month of August is soon to draw to a close and take with it the Summer Doldrums and Dog Days. For now, though, we must deal with this final Friday and, once again, a price of Comex gold that is joined tick-for-tick with the POSX. Fortunately for us today, the POSX...

CGP, Summer Doldrums & AlgoHell

Mr. Logic has left the building.

Thursday, August 27, 2020 - 10:27am

Chief Goon Powell's "consequential" policy statement came off without a hitch today and, though it was tremendously bullish long-term for the precious metals, we've seen a whipsaw. Why? Don't forget what time of year it is.

So let's get this out of the way first. Does this look like a...

Hurricane Jerome

Landfall scheduled for early tomorrow.

Wednesday, August 26, 2020 - 10:54am

Chief Goon Powell is not scheduled to speak for another 24 hours but already the impacts are being felt today. You still have time to board up and prepare for his video landfall tomorrow. I suggest you use the time wisely.

Obviously this is a play on words with a major hurricane...

A Surprise Development?

Tuesday, August 25, 2020 - 9:45am

It's as if suddenly the whole world is awakening to the possibility that we've been discussing here since early July. And what's that? The very real likelihood that the Fed is about to announce a major policy change regarding inflation.

Again, this should NOT be a surprise to anyone...

Plowing The Field

Monday, August 24, 2020 - 10:48am

As we discussed late last week, The Big Event this week will be Chief Goon Powell's Thursday morning appearance at this year's virtual Jackson Holedown. The Comex action today has all the appearances of a deliberate effort to "plow the field" before the event.

And why do I say that?...

Ready To Call It A Week

Friday, August 21, 2020 - 11:01am

Another week that proves the old TFMR adage of "it's not how you begin the week that matters". Monday saw a strong rally on The Greazball news but it has been nothing but steady downward pressure ever since as The Summer Doldrums have taken hold.

And how do we know this? Because, at...

Dog Days

So let's start a Hat Contest!

Thursday, August 20, 2020 - 10:31am

It seems clear that we are officially in the doldrums of summer...the Dog Days. And how do we know? Because pre-programmed algo correlations are now driving prices, regardless of fundamentals or human intellect.

All you have to do is look at the action this morning to see it. As...

Gambling Time

It's going to be an interesting day.

Wednesday, August 19, 2020 - 10:13am

Everything came together this morning just as I hoped it might when yesterday's podcast was recorded. So, since I'm playing with some house money, I thought that today might be a good day to do some gambling.

As you know, the July FOMC minutes are due to be released at 2:00 pm ET today...
