We might as well begin with a link to Jason's crowning achievement. Here's his seminal piece in...

While nearly every "analyst" watches the CoT reports, very few pay attention to the monthly Bank Participation Reports. However, we do. And this month's report is at a record extreme.

In yesterday's podcast, we took a whole bunch of time explaining the current CoT structure, how it is...

Gosh, we've never seen this happen before. The Price of Comex gold was ready to finish the week in the green and above $1400...and then, as if by magic, the BLSBS prints some outrageously overstated number and the metals get crushed.

And, in the end, what about this is surprising?...

We all know that the CPI woefully underestimates the cost of living in the US. However, this metric along with several others, is reported to be closely watched by your monetary masters at The Fed. Not only are the CPI and PPI showing no inflation pressures, other indices like today's Import-...

So far, there's not much going on today with an absence of economic datapoints and other news. So let's take the day to discuss two other items that have been on my mind recently.

As I type, we've (mostly) avoided the 8:30 Comex beatdown. I say "mostly" because the usual selling was...

Of course, when dealing with the deliberately opaque LBMA/Comex system, no one can ever say for certain. But the clues are there, however, and if you know how to interpret them, you can begin to piece it together. So that's what we'll do here this morning.

And this shouldn't take long...

The word "ridiculousness" is a creation of MrsF. It's appropriate to use today as here we are again with the bullshit getting piled on so heavily that it's difficult to stay engaged.

Following in the footsteps of the ECB, the Fed capitulated today and thereby removed any doubt that 2019 is shaping up to be just like 2010.

The two main takeaways from today are:
