Fighting The Fight

It's going to be a long week.

Monday, March 11, 2019 - 10:42am

A new week begins and the fight continues. We had a decent bounce back on Friday but, as we expected, The Banks are continuing to stymie price near $1300. This sets up a long week of economic data and other news, all while we struggle for every up tick.

The economic data today was the...

BLSBS Never Disappoints

Your once-a-month clown show strikes again.

Friday, March 8, 2019 - 10:45am

Whether it's an upside or downside surprise, the monthly BLSBS never fails to confound all of the big-time economists of Wall Street. And why? Because it's all just a massive scam of statistical assumptions and guesswork!

So today, with everyone on CNBS predicting a "jobs number" in...

Dovish Draghi > Dovish Powell

What a mixed-up, crazy world this is.

Thursday, March 7, 2019 - 9:54am

Let's see if we have this straight...

So Count Draghi emerges from his crypt today to proclaim that the EU economy is slowing rather dramatically. He trimmed his 2019 growth and inflation estimates and the result was a sharp drop in the euro as more ECBQE is now expected:...

Another History Lesson From JBSFC

Another history lesson from Batchelor and Cohen.

Wednesday, March 6, 2019 - 10:13pm

Batchelor and Cohen took time to provide another terrific, objective history lesson last evening. This is the kind of honest dialogue you won't find anywhere else so please make time to listen.

With all of the talk about Russian "meddling" in US affairs, perhaps it would be healthy to...

Here Comes Political Risk

Discord in Washington will lift gold higher.

Wednesday, March 6, 2019 - 10:31am

You may recall that Political Risk was a key component of "The Three Themes for 2018". This was centered around what would take place if the Democrats were to take some control of the US Congress. Well, here we are in March 2019 and it's all beginning to appear, right on cue.

The first...

Bottom Fishing in Comex Silver

Another tradable rally is coming.

Tuesday, March 5, 2019 - 11:06am

In Comex Digital Silver, this latest Spec wash is nearly three full steps back to go with the most recent three steps forward.

You know the drill. Price rallies. Price breaks key technical level. Banks increase float. Price stalls. Price crashes. Wash. Rinse. Repeat.

On the...

Monday Lows?

Overbought has become oversold. (A public post.)

Monday, March 4, 2019 - 9:58am

Comex Gold is down again this morning in follow-through selling on the heels of Friday's smash. But the POSX and bonds are stable so the action today may mark a low for now.

For now. I repeat that because this is going to be a long week. There will be no shortage of news and datapoints...

A Discussion of Gold, Silver and Palladium

Some terrific free audio with Bill Murphy of GATA.

Friday, March 1, 2019 - 1:27pm

It's always fun to do these live shows with Phil Kennedy and this segment, recorded Thursday morning, was no exception.

What made this particularly compelling was the opportunity to visit with my old friend, Bill Murphy. He and Chris Powell have been the tip of the spear in the fight...

Leghounds Doing Business

Once they lay into ya, you'd best just let em finish.

Friday, March 1, 2019 - 11:02am

Wow, what a brutal and no-fun week this has been. Every brief rally has been heavily sold as this has no doubt become our first Spec wash-and-rinse of 2019.

Of course, we have no idea of just how much The Banks had gotten over-short by last Wednesday. I guess we'll get some idea later...

Q4 GDP Crushes Bounce

Day Six of the latest siege.

Thursday, February 28, 2019 - 10:37am

Gold and silver were both bouncing back and headed higher earlier today. And then the Comex opened. And then the Q4 GDP came in stronger than expected. And now we're back in the tank.

Here's the story on the Q4 GDP which purports to show that 2018 was the best year for the US economy...
