New Year's Eve

Saturday, December 31, 2011 - 12:35pm

What are you doing, New Year's Eve? Well, if you're like me, you're cleaning the house on the orders of the Mrs. In between chores, however, I figured you might be looking for a distraction so I present these two items.

Revise and Extend

Friday, December 30, 2011 - 9:50am

Just wanted to take a moment and add a few thoughts to the previous post.

I wrote that post late Wednesday with the intention of keeping it up all day yesterday. I had a hunch that The Cartel would try to gun the PMs yesterday and they did. Is it a concern that they were able to smash gold through 1550? Of course. However, it's not the end of the world by any means.

The Moment of Truth

If you're about my age, you probably can't read that title without thinking of this song. By the way, Elizabeth Shue sure was freaking HOT back then.

No Charts Today (updated with a chart!)

Wednesday, December 28, 2011 - 10:20am

Because it's all just nonsense. The euro just dropped for no real reason. The incumbent rise in the dollar caused the metals to take the elevator down about 5 floors. Silver has broken through 28 and looks now to be headed toward 26. Maybe by next week we can begin to assess the damage The Cartel is inflicting. Until then, all we can do is watch.

Holiday Trading

I hope that everyone had a happy Ramuhanukwanzmas. After being closed yesterday, the markets are back open today and...surprise, surprise...the precious metals are trading lower.

Christmas Eve Eve

Has this ever happened to you? Your spouse or "significant other" tells you something like "let's not spend money on each other this year". Let's just get "one or or two small presents" and spend money on other stuff, instead. Then you wake up on 12/23 and find all sorts of presents with your name on them under the tree and realize that, instead of relaxing, you'd better get your arse back to the! That's where I'm headed today but first, this quick update.

Quick Update

Just wanted to add a few things before the end of the day.

Happy RamaHanuKwanzMas

I found our next holiday video while listening to Glenn Back back in 2007. It's a sort of anti-PC anthem. If you are overtly political or easily offended, I suggest you simply skip it. If you're not, you'll likely have the frustratingly catchy chorus stuck in your head all day.

Taking The Day Off

Like John's last words to Yoko: "You're on your Ono".

Open thread.

Another Happy Tuesday

Tuesday, December 20, 2011 - 10:12am

We speculated yesterday that today would be another "Happy Tuesday" where The Cartel relents and the metals rise as short positions are covered. Looking good so far. Before we get started, though, a holiday treat that the LTs introduced me to last year.
