TFMR Podcast - Thursday, January 31

This is a free public podcast. Given the circumstances, you should take time to listen.

47

It was a decent day as a follow-up to the fireworks of yesterday. And now we await the BLSBS tomorrow, aware of the fact that we've had a pretty nice 5-day run and we may be due for a brief pullback.

But for today, we simply assess where we've been, where we are and where we're heading. As to the latter, the biggest signal of future Fed policy is coming from the bond market, so that's where we begin the discussion today.

Though we don't want to overlook the importance of the POSX:

We check the updated charts of both CDG and CDS:

And we close with another check on the mining shares.

Thanks for listening and be ready for a very interesting end to the week tomorrow.

Google ads

I bought 2 suitcases online recently. Now I keep seeing ads for suitcases. When will the go$%^&ed AI realize I've already made the purchase?

polish and russian beauties

I simply must enter the fray to save Brolga's reputation - I agree with Scoremore that the choice of ads depicted on Turd's site is influenced by the ads on other sites you visit, not the sites themselves. Like Scoremore, I now use an adblocker but prior to that, ZeroHedge was always displaying ads for international beauties and, after visiting ZH, similar ads showed up on TMFR for me. I once teased Craig about it before I realized that the ads were following me around.

Talking about pop up ads

Why do I keep getting these pics of Ocasio-Cortez, Erin Burnett, and Dana Perino popping up all the time?

How to block the blocking of ad-blockers

I'm taking the ad war up to the next level with this:

https://pi-hole.net/

It takes some tech savvy to set up, which is part of the reason it isn't (yet) being targeted by Google and others for blocking.

Google is evil and so are all of their "free" things like Chrome, Gmail, and Youtube. No offense to Turd, but I already paid for a subscription here, so I don't want to see ads. I also pay for my email service (fastmail.com). I pay for a server running owncloud to store and sync files instead of using Google drive or Dropbox. I also pay (through donations) to some podcasts and open source software that is otherwise free.

When you purchase a service, you are the customer. When you get a service for free, you are the product that is sold.
