Do You Believe In Magic?

It's going to take some serious Central Bank Magic to rescue the "stock market" today.

Tuesday, October 23, 2018 - 10:54am

It's going to take some serious Central Bank Magic to rescue the "stock market" today. And it's not a question of "IF" the intervention will occur, it's a function of "when".

So far, though, it has been straight down for the S&P. The futures were down all through the overnight and...

Manic Monday

Monday, October 22, 2018 - 10:50am

As we all attempt to adjust to the updated TFMR, the "markets" keep on trading, regardless. So let's dig in and attempt to assess where things might be headed this week.

Thanks again to everyone for your patience and understanding with the updated site. While there are things you may...

Starting Fresh

Saturday, October 20, 2018 - 12:06pm

The updated TFMR is up and running!

As you've no doubt noticed, the revamped TFMR is a complex beast. There are all sorts of updates and added capabilities and this will make the experience for all of us here even better.

The old site was built on a Drupal platform in 2011 and...

Moving Day

Friday, October 19, 2018 - 10:39am

As the final glitches get worked out on the site transition, just this quick post and update.

Let's begin with the "stock market". It's the 31st anniversary of the 1987 crash and it appears that TPTB are working to ensure that no hint of any such event occurs today. Regardless of...

Amidst A Sea Of Red

Thursday, October 18, 2018 - 10:41am

The entire commodity complex is down today as the POSX has strengthened following yesterday's FOMC minutes.

Ahead of the FOMC Minutes

Wednesday, October 17, 2018 - 10:43am

Both Comex digital metals are up this morning ahead of the 2:00 pm EDT release of the minutes to last month's FOMC.

This Week With Batchelor and Cohen

Wednesday, October 17, 2018 - 9:37am

After taking last week off, John and Steve returned last evening with an interesting history lesson of Cold War espionage mixed in with a discussion of current events.

Clawing Higher

Tuesday, October 16, 2018 - 10:53am

It has been a terrific, 5-day stretch for Comex gold and now prices are climbing even higher today as some of the bond market selling eases and the POSX falls back below 95.

October Surprises

Monday, October 15, 2018 - 10:21am

The week begins with a falling POSX and rising Comex precious metals. Will it end that way, too?

Back Up

Friday, October 12, 2018 - 10:42am

The "stock market" has bounced higher today but, in a variation of an old TFMR adage, it's not how the S&P begins today that matters. It's how the S&P ends today and this week that will be important.

Another Stab At The 50-Day

Thursday, October 11, 2018 - 10:27am

Comex Digital Gold is making another attempt at a first close north of its 50-day moving average since April 23. A rallying CNY, lower interest rates, a low CPI and a carryover safe haven bid from yesterday are all prompting today's move.

Rain and Pain

Wednesday, October 10, 2018 - 10:45am

Late yesterday, President Trump stated that The Fed was moving too fast on hiking the fed funds rate. Now today, the PPI comes in slightly softer than expectations. What an interesting set of circumstances for Chief Goon Powell.

More Catching On

Tuesday, October 9, 2018 - 11:11am

The CNY-GC peg is now becoming so obvious that more and more folks are catching on. Unfortunately, this does little to stop or reverse the downward momentum.

Dreary Monday

Monday, October 8, 2018 - 10:45am

The Chinese return and the PBOC immediately weakened the CNY overnight. With Comex gold down as much as $17 earlier, I guess we have our answer regarding which way the "peg" would respond today.

Your Latest "In Gold We Trust" Chartbook

Friday, October 5, 2018 - 12:47pm

Our pal Ronni Stoeferle and his friends at Incrementum AG have just released the latest chartbook update in their "In Gold We Trust" series. Over the weekend, be sure to spend some time looking over this very valuable information.

A Non-Event BLSBS

Friday, October 5, 2018 - 10:11am

Back in the day, BLSBS Friday meant volatility and craziness. In 2018 and with Comex gold now closely tied to the CNY, it seems the BLSBS hardly even matters.

More Questions Than Answers

Thursday, October 4, 2018 - 10:22am

Even though there are mentions of a blowout BLSBS number tomorrow...and even though interest rates continue to rise...Comex gold and silver are bouncing back today and once again positioning themselves directly below their respective 50-day MAs as we move toward the end of the week.

An Update from Batchelor and Cohen

Wednesday, October 3, 2018 - 9:40am

Professor Cohen returned last evening to join John Batchelor for a comprehensive update on the New Cold War. Please be sure to listen to these podcasts.

Watching The 50-DMAs

Wednesday, October 3, 2018 - 9:19am

Yesterday was fun but the late day chart-painting kept it from being anything of true significance. And now here we are, trading sideways into Friday's BLSBS.

Turning Golden Week On Its Head

Tuesday, October 2, 2018 - 10:44am

For the past several years, the Chinese holiday of "Golden Week" has led to steep declines in Comex gold and silver. So far in 2018 the opposite has occurred. What the heck is going on and is this related to the ongoing yuan-gold "peg"?
