The Criminality Continues

The more things change, the more they stay the same.

Thursday, February 14, 2019 - 10:16am

After yesterday's ridiculous Globex raid, it pains me to report that the criminality continues and is on full display this morning.

I guess all I can really do is update the situation. By now, I hope you fully realize how this game is played by the market-making Banks. Nowhere on earth...

Hanging Tough

Though it appears that we're still in the two-steps-back mode.

Wednesday, February 13, 2019 - 12:06pm

Today's CPI was mild and bland and this has helped to spur the Comex metals slightly higher. Remember, the official "dual mandate" of the Fed includes 2% price inflation so anything below that level leads their fuzzy-headed academics to conclude that monetary conditions are too tight.


Tackling Tuesday

Another day in the barrel.

Tuesday, February 12, 2019 - 9:22am

(For newsletter subscribers, this is a free public post.)

We've got a lot to do today so it all begins with an early start. And that's just fine because there's a lot going on.

Let's dive right in as the Comex just opened and already the digital versions of the metals are...

Slow Death By Pig

The relentless rise since the FOMC is taking its toll.

Monday, February 11, 2019 - 9:45am

I had hoped that a return of Chinese markets would help to reverse the non-stop uptrend that The Pig (POSX) has sustained ever since the FOMC two weeks ago. Nope. At least not today.

We discussed this relentless bid for The Pig last week and it's actually quite curious. In a small way...

Friday Finish

Glad to get this week behind us.

Friday, February 8, 2019 - 10:53am

We look to end the week on an interesting note as the Comex metals bounce back while the bond market continues to rally and the "stock market" continues to back off. What will next week bring and how will a return of China affect things?

For today, things are mostly quiet as there have...

The Pullback Continueth

Even when you know it's coming, it's always frustrating to watch play out.

Thursday, February 7, 2019 - 10:56am

A quick scan of the homepage reveals multiple references late last week to an impending pullback. And here we are. However, the Chinese New Year holiday ends soon and multiple technical signals are providing support in the short-term so perhaps this current decline has nearly run its course....

Distaste of The Union

CGP's speech tonight will be far more important.

Wednesday, February 6, 2019 - 9:02am

Now that Trump's meaningless SOTU address is behind us, we can begin to focus upon much more important speeches that are coming in the hours ahead.

First, this evening brings Chief Goon Powell with a speech in Virginia at 7:00 pm EST. Tomorrow morning brings his right hand man, Goon...

Checking In Again With Mr. Palladium

Could this be a magic metal?

Tuesday, February 5, 2019 - 10:51am

It has been three weeks since we focused upon palladium...and it has been an eventful three weeks for our new friend. He's been punched lower but has crawled up off the mat each time. And now, he appears ready to make another batch of new alltime highs!

If you've been following along,...

Happy New Year

Another busy week begins.

Monday, February 4, 2019 - 9:43am

Chinese New Year is this week and, as with Golden Week in October, you never know precisely how the Comex metals will respond to the Chinese markets being on holiday.

Already last evening, the USDCNH rose sharply...meaning a weakening versus the dollar. Whether this is some follow-...

Super Bowl Weekend Thread

Saturday, February 2, 2019 - 11:50am

Short on time this morning and there's no sense in discussing the CoT so just a few quick charts to start your weekend.

First of all, check the beauty of the weekly chart for CDG. We're probably due for some temporary weakness and maybe the week-long Chinese holiday will do it. We'll...
