TFMR Podcast - Monday, November 19

Today's podcast is freely available for public distribution.


After a volatile Monday, the stage is set for a very important Tuesday across all global markets as tomorrow will be the last day this week with "all hands on deck" due to the looming US holiday of Thanksgiving.

Thus as a public service and just for fun, I though we'd make this a public podcast today. Please feel free to pass the link along to anyone who might be interested and if you're here for the first time, please understand that we create posts and podcasts like these every single day of the week...all for a whopping 40¢/day subscription. You can learn more here: www.tfmetalsreport.com/subscribe

For today, we begin with a discussion of these three links:

From that third link is this passage. I think it describes nearly all of us:

As we begin our review of the charts, we start with two of the bond market where rates have fallen to their lowest levels in 60 days.

And Tuesday will be an important day for the "stock market" and POSX, too:

And all of this will impact the Comex Digital Metals on Tuesday, both of which are still working on flipping their momentum for a year-end and Q1 rally.

OK, that's all for today. Thanks for listening and be ready for an interesting Tuesday.

New updates coming later this

New updates coming later this evening:

  • Dates, number of comments, and number of hat tips to home page posts and other summary pages
  • Resizing of embedded tweets to ensure they don't cause the page to scroll left-and-right on small devices
  • Playback rate setting on player so you can listen to podcasts at a faster speed if you're short on time (or prefer to hear Craig as though he's permanently juiced on caffeine)
  • Foundation for other updates coming in the near future (Safari menu fix, comment styling changes, etc.)
  • Bunch of new module and security updates

A repeat of history or is

A repeat of history or is this what tribulation looks like? We have had several hundred years of freedoms and protections. Oceans on both coasts, isolated from most of the conflicts of the world. Nations may implode, corruptions rise without challenge and we see the history of the Armenian Genocide, the Jews fleeing from Germany and Europe, the Syrian refugee's in Jordan and everywhere else, the old Exodus from Egypt, the Lost Boys from Sudan/Uganda. Will there be an American Exodus?

The enemy has so invaded the institutions of this nation that many are burning down their own culture, not being prepared for the consequences. Invasions bring destruction, the land will remain but the citizens will either adapt or be trampled under foot.

Yes, my grandparents walked from the Ukraine, across Poland, arriving in Germany and sailed to our once great/safe land in America. Do we have their courage today or are we snowflakes of entitlement?

For decades I pondered how that the conflicts between cultures and nations could become so violent, needing One to stop the madness before everyone is eliminated. Now I see the writing on the walls, borders, politics, educational systems, and even the divided religious systems of men. jmo Jim

Does anyone have thoughts on

Does anyone have thoughts on Keith Neumeyers First Mining Gold ? No real reason, I have held it for a long time and it seems to me that should the market ever pick up, it could become a favorite play. Not looking for reassurance or anything, Keith has a fine track record, just thought I`d ask if anyone shares my views, cheers.

Nietzsche would be very proud

Nietzsche would be very proud to live in today’s world. Another quote from him, “Morality is just a fiction used by the herd of inferior human beings to hold back the few superior men.”

Now I can see it Craig, but I

Craig and degraives. Now I can see it, but I swear, for a few minutes after I posted it, it would not open, (I saw the you tube image and the text I typed). I added some text and the text wasn't added. So, perhaps when it says that it may take a few minutes to see your post, that was the case somewhat. Anyways.

Good music.

Since we're linking old song

Since we're linking old song lyrics to current events - And we all know that songwriters SOMEHOW predicted the future - then let me add one that has made me cry countless times over the past 10 years, after I REALLY LISTENED to it......

Don Henley and Glenn Frey described Paradise, Fires, Malibu, the USA - long before last week..."Call Some Place Paradise, Kiss It Goodbye"

This one is on my Stack For Posterity also. Too bad my family and friends never "got it" as I sent it many times over the past 10 years..

Here's your S&P double top

Here's your S&P double top chart, from 1937. Found it through the hedge link to another article from Feb 2018.

Wolf RIchter, author of the

Wolf RIchter, author of the Wolf Street Report, focussed on the FANGMAN stocks which include Facebook, Amazon, Netflix, Google, Microsoft, Apple and Nvidia. They were down collectively 4.4% today That might account for the S&P hammering. $170 billion total market cap lost today. Almost $1 trillion lost since August. These stocks are 50% of the S&P

BTW Many of the world's central banks are heavily invested in S&P and tech Total CB investments in the markets was $30 trillion last year.

FB's off 40%. Apple's down 25%

I consider FG and Alphabet vapor-ware. They're the lilies of the field; they neither reap nor sow; toil nor spin; their fields tended by man children

Utterly useless manifestations of our vanity and inanity, virtue signaling semaphors in an internet of darkness

Apple and Microsoft. Overpriced trinketware and clunky coding. Both victims of their own success

Nvidia. Crypto miner chip factory falling on hard times.

Netflix. Bleeding edge entertainment hemorraging cash faster than light, hoping to stay alive long enough to entertain us to death

Amazon. A trillion dollar yard sale led by a carney barking bald headed skunk

No bounce so far on the SP

No bounce so far on the SP

As I type 15 minute bar on Gold turning negative 10:52 here minus 6, 4:52 your time.

They are all working to keep this sordid mess from falling apart. I heard no mention on TFMR about something that made alot of noise over here yesterday, albeit stock related. Any time you shave 5% or more off of big stocks in a day - it does weaken the whole market and its' psychology. Also we are dealing with a world of CORRUPTION - the Rule of Law is not respected. This is why I am bringing this up, and its' relevance to the Mad Mad World.

Like Libero when I post music or a clip it doesn't usually play right away. Is this caused by Ron fixing things manually later, a time lapse, something else?

Nissan, Mitsubishi, Renault form one large group.


PS I am trying this for the first time. A direct link from StockCharts - I pressed a button by mistake - we'll see if it works. I am posting this to show where we are Gold versus EUR if this works you will see that we are bumping against an important resistance point.

Didn't work - back to square one.
