Back To Work

Monday, July 30, 2018 - 11:33am

A new week begins as many of the past several have before...with both Comex metals trading sideways to down, following the CNY in a tight correlation.

Shares Get Pounded

Friday, July 27, 2018 - 10:47am

It was definitely not a good day for the shares on Thursday.

Two Things To Consider

Thursday, July 26, 2018 - 10:12am

You may have already seen both of these but I thought we should combine them into one post.

Four More Charts

Wednesday, July 25, 2018 - 11:42am

Not much progress has been made this week but at least things haven't gotten worse.

Just Six Charts

Tuesday, July 24, 2018 - 11:42am

No need for a detailed post as there is only one, primary driver in July 2018.

A streaming fountain of Truth

Monday, July 23, 2018 - 9:54am

Since we may all be thinking of other things instead of metals today, and seeing that chart this morning with silver swatted down yet again, I am certainly focusing on other things. Well, perhaps the bankers just gave metals a mean look and said, “Get back in your room!” rather than a full trip to the woodshed.

(My gut says, “If silver really does drop to single digits, crack open the piggy bank [credit] and make a purchase.”)

Friday Follies

Friday, July 20, 2018 - 8:20am

The Comex metals have recovered from another overnight drop. Can we manage to finish the day strong and finally put this week behind us?

Who Is In Control?

Thursday, July 19, 2018 - 10:41am

As the Comex metals fall to absurdly low levels due to a tumbling Chinese yuan, today we have a question for you to consider.

JBSFC on Trump and Putin

Thursday, July 19, 2018 - 9:36am

John Batchelor and Professor Stephen F. Cohen have recorded weekly updates on The New Cold War for nearly five years now...and we've diligently posted them here at TFMR since early 2014. Nowhere else in western media will you find such a fair, balanced and objective discussion of the situation and I urge you in the strongest possible terms to listen this week and every week.

Sinking Ships

Wednesday, July 18, 2018 - 11:01am

As the Comex metals decline in price again today, it has begun to feel as if we're on a sinking ship.

CGP on The Hill

Tuesday, July 17, 2018 - 10:15am

So, let's see...The Fed chairman goes up to Capitol Hill and the price of Comex gold is slammed lower. That's never happened before! I'm stunned!!

Catching On

Monday, July 16, 2018 - 10:53am

As evidenced around the internet, more and more folks are catching on to this latest CNY-gold link. But while this correlation is clearly evident, there's very little agreement as to why it exists in the first place.

Playing With Fire

Friday, July 13, 2018 - 9:48am

Comex gold teeters upon critical support today. Let's hope it holds or we risk a significant stop run to even lower prices.


Thursday, July 12, 2018 - 10:45am

Once again, the Consumer Price Index prints with little if any overall price inflation, at least as measured by this index. Keep in mind, of course, that one the primary rationale used by The Fed in hiking the fed funds rate is to restrain inflation. They must be doing a great job!

Growing More Obvious

Wednesday, July 11, 2018 - 10:53am

This current connection between the yuan and gold grows more obvious by the day yet it seems that there is very little discussion anywhere as to the how and why of the correlation.

Vital Listening From Batchelor and Cohen

Wednesday, July 11, 2018 - 9:37am

On the eve of the NATO meeting and Trump's summit with Putin, it is absolutely essential that you take time this week to listen to this latest installment from Mr. Batchelor and Professor Cohen.

Please be sure to read Jim's follow-up to yesterday's excellent post.

Self-Assessment in 2018

Tuesday, July 10, 2018 - 10:43am

2018 has so far proven to be a challenging year for precious metal owners and prognosticators alike. Can we turn things around in the second half?

Guest Post: "A Nation Built On Lies", by Jim Quinn

Monday, July 9, 2018 - 11:26am

This seems like a good complement to what we just wrote yesterday regarding the lies told regarding Syrian chemical weapons back in April. Our old pal, Jim Quinn, shows that the lies don't start and stop with just foreign policy.

Comex Gold Up 2% in Past Week

Monday, July 9, 2018 - 10:18am

That's one way to look at it. And it may be the correct way, too, as price has now clearly broken free of the downtrend which had contained it for nearly three weeks.
