TFMR Podcast #44 - Jackass on the Barbie

318

For a holiday treat, Jim Willie stops by for an informative and enlightening podcast.

Jim and I cover three main topics today:

  1. The recent takedown in gold and silver and the incredible physical demand which followed.
  2. News and behind-the-scenes events related to the recent G20 meeting in Turkey.
  3. The Fed's ongoing ZIRP and QE∞ and their total inability to exit the treasury market. Ever.

So there you have it. Nearly 45 minutes of uninterrupted Jackassian wisdom. Enjoy.

Have a great weekend!

TF

Riff Raffle Closing at 6:00 pm EDT

Remember that the Riff-Raffle closes at 6:00 New York time today. To keep it fair, all orders for tickets received after that time will be rejected and refunded.

I'm still trying to figure out the best format for broadcasting the results. We'll do it "live" if we can OR we'll record it as it's conducted and then immediately post the video to YouTube. I'll keep you posted.

Where Are We?

Irrational exuberance still abounds in the stock markets, compliments of the Fed force feeding liquidity.

Tapering?

Fugettaboutit!

All other fundamentals are terrible. With not one improvement, save more pessimism by so-called "professional" traders with regard to gold and silver.

Total speculative gross short positions in gold are at a record high. The non-commercials (funds) cut their net long positions back to the lowest level since late 2008.

Precious metals bull or bear?

The EE loudly proclaims bear, backed up by their parrots in the MSM 'parroting' the same line.

It is much more likely that we are in a cyclical decline in a secular bull market.
