A Golden BLSBS Week

Monday, October 1, 2018 - 10:27am

It's the first week of the quarter. It's "Golden Week" in China. It's BLSBS week here in the US. And all of this will likely combine to keep Comex gold and silver prices under pressure through Friday.

Is It Time To Grab That Silver Knife?

Friday, September 28, 2018 - 10:31am

Back on Tuesday we asked if Comex silver could finally be turning. Today it looks like we may be getting our answer.

The Sum Of All Bears

Thursday, September 27, 2018 - 10:56am

A fed funds rate hike, a hawkish Powell and a strong GDP number have all combined to smash the Comex metals back down today. Just another no fun day here in precious metal land.

Pre-Fedline Open Thread and Hat Contest

Wednesday, September 26, 2018 - 9:46am

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?

Tuesday, September 25, 2018 - 10:19am

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

Monday, September 24, 2018 - 10:53am

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

Friday, September 21, 2018 - 11:00am

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

Thursday, September 20, 2018 - 10:23am

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

Wednesday, September 19, 2018 - 10:30am

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!

Wednesday, September 19, 2018 - 10:23am

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

Tariff Schmariff

Tuesday, September 18, 2018 - 10:31am

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

Monday, Monday

Monday, September 17, 2018 - 9:53am

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

Monday, September 17, 2018 - 8:55am

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

Friday, September 14, 2018 - 10:53am

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

Thursday, September 13, 2018 - 10:37am

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

Wednesday, September 12, 2018 - 10:00am

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

Tuesday, September 11, 2018 - 11:42am

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

Monday, September 10, 2018 - 9:09am

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

Friday, September 7, 2018 - 11:13am

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

Thursday, September 6, 2018 - 10:50am

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?
