Pre-Fedline Open Thread and Hat Contest

By

There's not much to discuss today with all eyes and ears upon Chief Goon Powell and his fedlines at 2:00 pm EDT. So, to pass the time, here's a thread and a Hat Contest!

Could Silver Finally Be Turning?

By

In the hope for a turnaround, we've been waiting for Comex silver to climb a "stair" higher. Are we seeing this finally take place today?

Here Comes Chief Goon Powell

By
12

There will be no shortage of stuff to discuss over the next few days as it's going to be a wild week and it will be centered around Chief Goon Powell and his FOMC on Wednesday.

Just Like Old Times

By

There are days when there's so much to write about that the task seems a bit daunting. Today is one of those days.

Dollar Dump

By

In a most pleasant development, the US$ is down sharply today and the POSX is back under 94. But Comex precious metal prices are flat. Gee, I wonder why...

Batchelor and Cohen Return

By

Professor Cohen returned last evening to discuss the latest twists and turns of The New Cold War with John Batchelor. As always, it is imperative that you find time to listen.

Arrrgghhh! We're Getting Hornswoggled Again!

Ahoy me freebooters and landlubbers! The Banker Scallywags remain in control so we must batten down the hatches!

Tariff Schmariff

By

Trump finally announced his tariff plan late yesterday and the Chinese responded today. The "market" reaction. A big ole yawn.

Monday, Monday

By
17

A new week begins with news of trade talks and tariffs and, of course, impending war and crisis. But at least Comex Digital Gold is up $4, so we've got that going for us...which is nice.

Guest Post: "What Keeps Them Up At Night", by Jim Quinn of The Burning Platform

As we arrive at the 10-year anniversary of The Great Financial Crisis, here's another excellent post from our friend, Jim Quinn of The Burning Platform.

The Weeknd

By
13

I've never understood if this cat's name is short for "The Weekend" or "The Weakened". Not even the LTs could explain it. Regardless, like that rapper fellow and in my weakened state, I'm ready for the weekend.

Hope Percolates

By
36

A weak CPI and a "hawkish" Count Draghi have combined to shove the POSX lower today. Thus, hope springs eternal that a bottom has been found for this most recent, five-month downtrend.

Going With The Flo

By
16

In what can hardly be called a shock, the mid-year POSX rally has led to a Producer Price Index today that came in well below "expectations". Now it's just one datapoint but it's definitely something worth noting.

No Rest For The Weary

By
19

And so it continues. The yuan weakens and the price of Comex gold falls. Endlessly. Relentlessly. But the value of my shiny stack remains unchanged.

Trying Times

By
40

A new week begins that will be filled with news on inflation, ECB intentions and a landfalling hurricane. And we're still two weeks away from the September FOMC! Good grief...

Another Red Candle

By
28

The reaction to today's BLSBS assures that we'll end the week with another red candle for Comex Digital Gold. That's 16 of the past 21 weeks and it marks the ugliest sustained downtrend in years.

Still In Play

By
30

Even though most signs point to lower lows, the idea that a bottom in price was found two weeks ago remains valid. Will tomorrow's BLSBS be the key?

More CoT History On Deck

By
25

Another potentially "historic" CoT report will be coming this Friday. Of course the question is, does it matter?

Guest Post: "10 YEARS LATER – NO LESSONS LEARNED", by Jim Quinn of The Burning Platform

By

Our friend, Jim Quinn, has written another excellent summary of where we've been, where we are and where we're going.

Worser Still

By
27

The Comex Digital Metals are once again under extreme pressure today and Comex Silver has taken another fifty cent stair down. Whats' next? A test of what has long been considered the "bear market lows" of December 2015 appears to be right around the corner.
