Fun with Max & Stacy

A collection of recent media appearances for your listening pleasure.

Saturday, August 31, 2019 - 8:59am

Last week, we recorded two segments with Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert as they begin to celebrate the tenth birthday of The Keiser Report. It's always a thrill to reach their vast audience with a discussion of gold, the dollar and where this is all headed in 2019 and beyond.

So, with...

Cat Four Friday

Just when you thought the news couldn't get any worse...

Friday, August 30, 2019 - 10:27am

Here comes a three-day market holiday weekend and here comes a Cat 4 hurricane, too. By Tuesday, we'll be ready to get back to work but we may also be talking about some significant events in Florida and the U.S. southeast.

I know we have quite a few Floridian Turdites out there so let...

Deeply Negative

Fundamentally positive.

Thursday, August 29, 2019 - 9:58am

As the notional amount of negative-yielding global debt continues to climb by the day, keep in mind that negative rates are the greatest fundamental rationale for physical precious metal ownership ever created.

Just a few notes from Twitter about this prevailing and deepening trend....

A Mid-Week Breather

A day to catch your breath ahead of Thursday and Friday.

Wednesday, August 28, 2019 - 10:43am

No headlines. No datapoints. Just a mid-week breather...for now. Of course, that could all change by the time I'm finished typing up this morning update.

It's a relatively quiet day but the pause in the madness likely won't last long. First of all, there's quite a bit of economic data...

Happy Tuesday

Comex silver reaches our next target.

Tuesday, August 27, 2019 - 10:45am

Back in the day, we used to refer to "Happy Tuesdays", when The Banks would cover shorts before the next CoT survey. That's likely not the case today. However, Tuesday is happy regardless as Comex Digital Silver crawls above $18 for the first time in nearly two years.

First of all,...

Wild Night

Everything looks so complete, when you're walking out on the street.

Monday, August 26, 2019 - 9:51am

In deference to Van Morrison, that was one wild night with headlines, rumors and outright lies swinging "markets" in percentage moves. And it's only Monday...which reminds us again of that old adage...

I guess there's really no need to recap everything that happened before 9:00 pm EDT...

A Rare, Sunday Evening Thread

Sunday, August 25, 2019 - 6:44pm

This is shaping up to be a very interesting and extraordinary evening. As such, the situation demands this new thread.

Why the new thread? Mainly so that you don't have to sift through ten pages Friday podcast comments in order to find a full update. Thus, here's what you need to know...

CGXi Double Whammy

And it's a positive double whammy, for once!

Friday, August 23, 2019 - 11:09am

It's a fun Friday new tariffs from China and CGP's Jackson Holedown speech create a fun combination of bullish drive into the Comex precious metals.

Let's start with the story that's most important...the new tariffs from China on US products. Here are a few links:...

Holedown Thursday

Fed Goons turn the beautiful Rocky Mountains into a polluted wasteland.

Thursday, August 22, 2019 - 10:52am

The Comex metals have been pressured all day ahead of the Fed's Jackson Holedown. Not even a truly lousy set of PMIs could stave off a relentless pressure to keep bond and gold prices restrained of CGP's big speech tomorrow.

Time is short as it has been a busy morning so I'll try to...

Nothing New Under The Sun

So far, just a mid-week snoozefest.

Wednesday, August 21, 2019 - 9:43am

It's the same old, same old today as equities rally back while gold is shoved lower.

And it all began as the futures reopened last evening at 6:00 ET. After falling 23 points yesterday, the S&P futures immediately jumped higher...and they have progressed in their usual, 45-degree...
