TF Metals Report Blogs


Saturday, June 2, 2018 - 5:43pm

When I started about my prepping Odyssey of building a home for the future, I'd hoped that folks here in T–ville might learn from some of my blunders. I think we have a fine opportunity to learn such things today. Coincidentally, my mood over the past month is perfectly reflected by the weekend silver chart.

Guest Post: "Five Questions To Ask Yourself Before Buying Precious Metals", by Olivier Garret, CEO of Hard Assets Alliance

Friday, June 1, 2018 - 5:17pm

Our friends at Hard Assets Alliance are back with another very helpful and timely post.

Busy Morning

Friday, June 1, 2018 - 11:29am

With apologies for the late start, let's dig in and try to make some sense out of where we were in May and where we hope to go in June.

Day 12

Thursday, May 31, 2018 - 10:38am

If the first Spec wash of 2018 is anything like the three Spec washes of 2017, then we are getting close to the end and the price of Comex gold should soon crawl back above the 200-day moving average.

This Week With Batchelor and Cohen

Wednesday, May 30, 2018 - 11:59am

Another comprehensive and objective discussion regarding the New Cold War last evening. As usual, you should be sure to carve out some time to listen.

Forth and Back

Wednesday, May 30, 2018 - 10:40am

Volatility reigns as what was bought yesterday is sold today and what was sold yesterday is bought back today. However, Comex gold continues sideways here on Day 11 as we wait out the final hours before the Jun18 Comex contract goes off the board.

Christmas in May

Tuesday, May 29, 2018 - 10:52am

Ronni Stoeferle of Incrementum AG has been a friend of TFMR for a while now. Each May, he and his partners at Incrementum publish their annual yearbook entitled "In Gold We Trust". It is required reading for anyone with an interest in the sector and we are pleased to post it here today.

No Shortage Of Things To Discuss

Tuesday, May 29, 2018 - 10:39am

Man oh man, is there ever a lot to write about this morning. The difficulty is in finding where to begin.

Dollar Surge Continues

Friday, May 25, 2018 - 10:26am

The POSX is surging again today, regardless of the FOMC news. Why? The euro is circling the drain again as EU risk spikes with renewed problems in the PIIGS. (We haven't had to use that acronym for a few years!)

Fed Followup

Thursday, May 24, 2018 - 8:32am

As the "markets" try to digest the implications of the FOMC minutes yesterday, we thought we'd make our own attempt at making it more clear.

Batchelor-Cohen on Russiagate

Wednesday, May 23, 2018 - 11:38am

John and Steve used last evening's podcast to summarize the current rash of headlines detailing the concerted effort made to infiltrate and undermine the Trump campaign in 2016. Knowing this, they then ask if the entire "Russiagate" story is nothing but a fabrication and an effort to conceal the tracks of deep state malfeasance.

The Curious Case Of The USDJPY

Wednesday, May 23, 2018 - 11:20am

We were first to recognize the yen-gold correlation back in the fall of 2014. In the months and years that followed, we watched this phenomenon drive the price of Comex gold on a daily basis. And then suddenly, sometime around February 1 of this year, something changed. Why?

On Schedule

Tuesday, May 22, 2018 - 11:16am

The price of Comex gold ran right into expected resistance today here on Day 6...but that's hardly surprising and we discussed this likelihood in yesterday's podcast. However, things continue to improve if anything by not worsening.

Time To Rebuild

Monday, May 21, 2018 - 10:52am

It's Day 5 of the first Comex gold Spec wash of 2018. This means that the lows are near and the bounce earlier today is very likely a sign that we are close.

Guest Post: "Mean Reversion In Equities Is Coming" -- by Olivier Garret, CEO of Hard Assets Alliance

Friday, May 18, 2018 - 5:49pm

Our friends at Hard Assets Alliance offer another timely and insightful piece for your consideration.


Friday, May 18, 2018 - 10:38am

Suddenly, there seems to be some really serious shit bubbling just below the surface again. Though we can't yet tie it all together into one neat little package, there certainly are signals out there that make you wonder if the global apple cart is about to be turned upside-down once more.

Day 3

Thursday, May 17, 2018 - 10:46am

The price of Comex Digital Gold isn't falling today but it's not moving higher, either. History tells us that this is just about what you'd expect on Day 3 of a Large Spec Washout.

John and Steve Discuss The New Cold War

Wednesday, May 16, 2018 - 4:01pm

Batchelor and Cohen returned last evening to update the tenuous circumstances of The New Cold War.

Watching The Washing

Wednesday, May 16, 2018 - 11:14am

We might as well find a few other things to talk about to keep us occupied while we wait for the first Comex gold Spec wash cycle of 2018 to complete.

Comex Gold Spec Flush

Tuesday, May 15, 2018 - 10:51am

For a few days last week, it appeared that we would avoid this fate. I guess not. So now that The Leghounds have laid into us, it's best we just sit back and let them finish.
