Last week, Chris Martenson and I recorded a podcast for his terrific website, Peak Prosperity. It was an informative, wide-ranging discussion so I thought it deserved its own thread.

Below is the source link with some text about our conversation. While you're there, you should be sure...

Our friend, Ronni Stoeferle, and his team have just released this morning their annual report, "In Gold We Trust". You should be sure to stop what you're doing and read this report today.

Still No Price Inflation

The Fed paints itself deeper into the corner.

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-...

Chris Marcus of Arcadia Economics has long been a friend of the site. He was also one of the last people to interview the late Bart Chilton. Thus, I thought it timely to record this podcast with him today.

Again, Chris spoke with Bart back in late March...just about a month before he...

JP Morgan Metals Manipulation Probe Continues

This news deserves its own thread.

As you likely know, a major trader at JP Morgan has been convicted of precious metals price manipulation through spoofing and other techniques. This person is now cooperating with prosecutors in an attempt to lessen his prison sentence.

JPM has attempted to sheepdip this person as a "...

Waiting For CGP

Chief Goon Powell takes center stage today with his latest fedlines at 2:00 pm EDT, followed by a presser at 2:30. In the meantime, here are a few items to consider.

So far today, not much is happening. Bonds are mostly flat while the POSX is actually down about 15¢. However, NONE of...

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...

Today's price slam marks the sixth day in the past nine where the price of Comex Digital Gold has been suddenly and deliberately slammed at/near 8:30 EDT. We wrote about this last week and, unfortunately, we have to write about it again today.

Here's the post from last Tuesday and the...

So What Really Happened Yesterday?

An explanation of the "why" and "how".

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...

Ridiculousness

Today is a good day to consider all possibilities.

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.

So greetings from my local coffee shop. The internet service at Turdfork remains severed so maybe I...

Bond Market Bidness

Again we ask, what is the bond market telling you?

Things are getting crazier by the day in the US bond market, where rates have collapsed in the week since Chief Goon Powell and his FOMC announced their latest capitulation to the forces The Fed unleashed a decade ago.

Sometimes when I prepare to type posts like this, I fear that I'm...

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:

  • The Fed is no longer anticipating a single rate hike for 2019
  • The Fed will

Wow, what a brutal and no-fun week this has been. Every brief rally has been heavily sold as this has no doubt become our first Spec wash-and-rinse of 2019.

Of course, we have no idea of just how much The Banks had gotten over-short by last Wednesday. I guess we'll get some idea later...

Q4 GDP Crushes Bounce

Day Six of the latest siege.

Gold and silver were both bouncing back and headed higher earlier today. And then the Comex opened. And then the Q4 GDP came in stronger than expected. And now we're back in the tank.

Here's the story on the Q4 GDP which purports to show that 2018 was the best year for the US economy...

An Update on OneGold

Why fool around with GLD and SLV when OneGold is available?

Here's another weapon in the fight against The Banks and a great alternative to GLD and SLV. Not only that, it's a great way to accumulate and stack physical precious metal!...

You may find it hard to believe given the calamity of Thursday but this week ended up being positive for both Comex metals with Comex gold up $11 and Comex Silver up 16¢. Not too shabby and I would imagine that most of us would be happy with that almost every week.

So today, after a...

As we discussed to finish last week, Phase Two of 2019 is now clearly underway. However, it's very likely to be a short trip as The Banks will fight us with everything they've got at $1350-1360.

But, whatever. We'll worry about that when we get there and They are just going to lose...
