TFMR Podcast - Thursday, January 31

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


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.


p.s. Due to the circumstances, I thought we'd make this a public podcast as an example of what we do here every day.

When the Real Powers step in

First read this.


What you just read is the real powers forcing the hand of the Chinese. If the Chinese have enough gold this will force them to link their money to a commodity to save their dollar. I say this because this action is going to force a run on the Chinese economy. This is shit hit the fan and the very real possibility of ending in WW3. What is that saying " Bank/Trade wars end in hot wars". If the Chinese aren't able to stabilize liquidity. They will smash the playing board. Period. What actions do you think they will take to protect themselves? Personally I don't think their going to bend a knee to the west. Loss of too much Face and they have hard memories of the last Asian crisis.

I have a real bad feeling on this. I thought this wouldn't play out until spring at least. Someone is moving timelines up and not for good results for us peons.

for a summation of the news

it is very hard to beat Greg Hunter. I have placed the start point 15 minutes into his weekly wrap-up.

As an aside - you can see at almost 6am EST, Gold is doing very fine thank you, and SP futures less so. Every day your US tax dollars go into inversing those trends - EVERY DAY. Are you a nation of couch potatoes?

1 year has a higher yield than anything out to 7 years. Full inversion is maybe less than a month away now.

I was just playing along

It's all good. Just like the "robust" jobs report! The BLSBS laid bare for all to see today. How far down with this number be revised?

And it appears that everyone is catching on to the scam...given the reaction. Also not the worst wage growth since Oct 2017.
