Argentus' Golden Quarter

I'm an analyst of market rhythms. At basic level this would be looking at market cycles, but there are other rhythms which are intermittent, or once off, or even created by weather events, or created by market manipulators behind the scenes, and that is the kind of thing I specialize in.

The Setup For The Big Trade forum at TFMR contains a single stream of my research relating to gold and silver in particular, freely available in text form. Approximately every 4th week I post a more macro article which can be found in my blog at TFMR, in Argentus's Golden Quarter. My subscription video newsletter is released several times a week with this and similar information about other markets too. It's called Rhythm 'n Price (RNP) and is both long term and short term in nature with specific trading ideas.

Price Stabilization is a Manipulation; How High It Goes is Now Public Information

Sunday, July 20, 2014 - 11:53am

Central Bankers engage in "Price Stabilization". Their actions are supposedly private. Professionalism demands secrecy but total secrecy is difficult to ensure. At what level in the organization would you expect that information "leaks" begin to occur? At the bottom? In the middle? Not likely!

Argentus Maximus: Ruminations on shiny precious metallic electrically conductive silvery stuff, and winning or losing large amounts of hard earned fiat cash while trying to get some for yourself.

High Stakes Gambling in a Town Called Zugzwang

Sunday, July 6, 2014 - 12:54pm

What do you do when all roads lead to a swampy quicksand between here and the destination? The "Marines" have already been sent to various locations and time is ticking. Is this 1980 or 1936 or 2014? What game are we gambling in? Is it Chess, Poker, Politics, War or Finance? How much time remains on the clock before Main St dies? And who, where or what is Zugzwang?

Sunday, June 29, 2014 - 3:30pm

Through the ages and through history even up to the present day, some things just repeat over and over. That means we can know roughly what to expect sometimes. But one thing is sure, the characters in past iterations of this cycle are all extremely interesting characters who were larger than life.
