The Comex Metals Attempt Another Rally

The latest Durable Goods report was a real turkey and it has knocked the stuffing out of the USDJPY this morning. Can this be used to yam Comex gold and Comex silver higher or is this all simply pie in the sky?

Your Latest Batchelor-Cohen Cold War Discussion

Another history lesson last evening from Batchelor and Cohen as they compare the current geopolitical climate to The Cold War of the 20th century.

As the US yield curve continues to flatten, we thought we should take a day to closely examine the moves in rates since September 8.

Comex Gold Clings To 200-Day MA

Jeezo pete, how many times have we written about this over the past month? Well, here we are again and if we fail to move forward in the next two weeks before the December expirations, we should worry that The Banks will finally be successful in smashing this key technical level.

102 Hours

A busy week begins with a Monday morning USDJPY and S&P ramp. Again however, as we always caution, it's not how you begin the week that matters.
