We Interrupt Your Weekend For This Special Bulletin


Our old friend, The Golden Jackass, reached out last week and suggested that he had some information and analysis that couldn't wait for the next, three-day weekend podcast. Thus this special audio for your weekend listening pleasure.

So what did Jim want to discuss? Primarily the fracturing global bond and equity markets and how the BIS has been preparing for a "debt jubilee" and gold price revaluation for decades.

I've learned that whenever The Jackass has a lot on his mind, it's best to just sit back and let him pontificate with as few interruptions as possible...and that's what we tried to do here. So, sit back and take it all in. There's a lot of information in these 57 minutes and it will require your full consideration.

Mr. and Ms. JQ Public...

...you don't know what you are missing by not being a vault member. Seriously, this is the best/easiest spent money of the year for me. If you are interested in the PM space and want to know its inner machinations, this is the place to be !

...and that is just the start; it's the other members of the community which provide the deepest insights !!!

Join for a month and see what you think.

Thanks Craig, and everyone, for creating such a great place !

For all stock chart junkies...

I have written some Python-based code for calculating some standard technical indicators and given it away for free:


Feel free to use the code as a starting point for doing your own manipulation analysis. I've been adding to the code as I have spare time. There is an HTML rendering of the included notebook to show some of what can be done:


So far I have coded moving averages (simple, exponential, and Kaufman-adaptive), average true range, relative strength index, commodity channel index, accumulation/distribution line, MACD, percent price oscillator, stochastic oscillator, Keltner channels, Bollinger bands, TRIX, and the Vortex indicator. I'll be adding more indicators when I can.

Enjoy if you want to play around with it. Nothing in it involves technical analysis/indicators that haven't been published and known for years, so as it is written it won't do anything that you can't already do on stockcharts.com.
