TF Metals Report Blogs

Profanity-Laced Tirade

Oh, how I would like to launch into one. What we have seen recently, and what we are currently witnessing, is the most blatant and disgusting manipulation of the metals I've seen. That it is allowed to stand without question by the CFTC, the SEC and the media sickens me to the point of nausea.

Amended Silver Support Levels

I've been saying since yesterday that $34 was vital support for silver. It still is. However, I thought it was important to look a bit closer at the charts and here's what I found.

Nervous Overnight

I don't like the looks of this. Sharp evening (U.S.) drops always get my attention. Sharp drops that occur on Tuesday evenings (after the weekly CoT survey) always raise my suspicion. 

Back On The Throne

Turd is back on the throne and ready for another crazy week. Let's get started!

Open Thread

Whew! I've spent the last 60+ hours with Hyde and Sweetness in Vegas. Very fun and great to get away and decompress for a few days. I'm headed home now and will have a full post sometime later today. Until then, consider this an open thread to discuss the topics of the day.

Guest Post: This Can't End Well!

In this first of a series, I have a guest post for you. Written by a friend of mine, it touches upon several of the issues we often cover here. Feel free to provide "feedback" in the comments section.


Just a short update this morning as The Turd has a big weekend planned and it all gets underway in a couple of hours.

Moral Bankruptcy

As you know, I was out all day today. It was nothing earth-shattering. Just a long list of mundane tasks that needed to get done. Accordingly, I had a lot of time to think. Think about trust. Honesty. Responsibility. The present. The future. All of this stuff swirling around in my mind for hours. I had an idea of what I wanted to write tonight but I didn't know if I could pull it off.

The Criminal Element, Part Deux

Look, I know that the stock market was down 400 points today. Maybe this can be written off as simple coincidence. As you know, though, I don't believe in coincidences when it comes to the PMs.


Oooh, boy. Today is shaping up to be a real doozy. The rest of this week, too. It will be important to remain calm.
