Leghounds Doing Business

Once they lay into ya, you'd best just let em finish.

Friday, March 1, 2019 - 11:02am

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.

Thursday, February 28, 2019 - 10:37am

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?

Tuesday, February 26, 2019 - 10:51am

(Reposting this as a reminder for everyone regarding this new tool in the fight against The Banks.)

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!...

TFMR Podcast - Friday, February 22

Friday, February 22, 2019 - 6:03pm

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...

On Toward $1360

Phase Two is underway but it may be short ride.

Tuesday, February 19, 2019 - 10:29am

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...

Thursday Conversation - Tom Coughlin & Andrew Maguire

Thursday, February 14, 2019 - 2:10pm

We're now within 100 days of the full rollout of the Kinesis Monetary System. As such, it's a great time to visit again with Tom and Andy in anticipation of this launch.

Again, Kinesis is something completely different...a monetary system that is fully backed by 100% allocated physical...

The Criminality Continues

The more things change, the more they stay the same.

Thursday, February 14, 2019 - 10:16am

After yesterday's ridiculous Globex raid, it pains me to report that the criminality continues and is on full display this morning.

I guess all I can really do is update the situation. By now, I hope you fully realize how this game is played by the market-making Banks. Nowhere on earth...

TFMR Podcast - Tuesday, February 12

Tuesday, February 12, 2019 - 7:20pm

The week heats up tomorrow with the CPI due in the morning and the PPI due on Thursday. In between, we'll watch the POSX closely to see if we can begin to get the Comex metals rising again.

For today, just this one link from your conspiracy theory-loving Fed:...

This Is Only Step One

This is a free public post. Given the circumstances, you should take time to read it.

Thursday, January 31, 2019 - 11:54am

If you've been following along since late last year, then you know there is nothing about the current action, economic climate or Fed policy that is unexpected. Therefore, it's very important to note that this is still just the initial rally of 2019 . There will always be...

TFMR Podcast - Monday, January 28

Monday, January 28, 2019 - 5:31pm

It was a solid day after the terrific rally of Friday. However, it's going to be a long week with a schedule full of economic datapoints, political intrigue and the FOMC.

We begin today with a general discussion and we make mention of these two links:

The No Fun Zone

Maybe by next week we'll have fun again. This week? Not so much.

Tuesday, January 22, 2019 - 10:43am

Well, here we are in another one of those no-fun periods where prices have stalled, momentum has reversed and some Specs are getting washed. It came earlier than expected and we have the BLSBS to blame for that. Let's begin today by attempting to assess where we go from here.


2010 + 9

A guide to 2019 and beyond.

Monday, January 14, 2019 - 9:22am

For each of the past several years, we've written January posts that helped to serve as a road map for the year ahead. Though crystal ball-gazing is an inexact science, on balance we've done a pretty good job with these forecasts. As 2019 dawns, we thought we should give it another try today...

Thursday (Friday) Conversation - Dave Collum

A look back at 2018 and a look ahead into 2019.

Friday, January 11, 2019 - 3:01pm

It's with great pleasure that we introduce a new guest to TFMR, Dr. Dave Collum of Cornell University. Though Dave is professor of organic chemistry by day, he's also a terrific analyst and commentator regarding the global financial system. His annual "Year In Review" column is always a must...

Bull Market Games

The Banks are up to their usual tricks.

Friday, January 11, 2019 - 10:59am

The new day dawns with the Comex metals trading in much the same manner as they have for the past few weeks...with the regular imposition of the Never, Ever, Ever, Ever, Ever Rule.

If you're new to TFMR, perhaps you're unaware of the "NEEEE Rule". No, it's not named after legendary...

The Banks Fight At $15.80

Get ready. It's going to be like this all year.

Thursday, January 10, 2019 - 10:45am

This is so freaking obvious and ridiculous that I thought it deserved its own post. What's even more ridiculous is the amount of shills and charlatans who still publicly cling to the silly notion that the Comex silver market is a free and fair marketplace for physical price discovery.


TFMR Podcast - Monday, January 7

Monday, January 7, 2019 - 4:59pm

The week begins with gold rebounding from the BLSBS wipeout last Friday. OK, that's nice. However, this is another one of those weeks where the end will be far more important than the beginning so let's get started by assessing the day and then preparing for what's to come.

After the...

How 'Bout Them Apples?

The stockroaches eagerly await another PPT stick save.

Thursday, January 3, 2019 - 11:50am

Some terrible forward guidance from Apple and a forex flash crash have combined today to create a toxic stew for the stockroaches, who are left hoping for another PPT intervention to save the day.

By now, you likely know all about what happened late yesterday so let's just skip...

TFMR Podcast - Wednesday, January 2

Wednesday, January 2, 2019 - 5:25pm

The year 2019 gets off to a hot start and it promises to hold all sorts of positive outcomes for all of us long-suffering precious metal investors.

We begin today's podcast by asking you to review these two links:

TFMR Podcast - Friday, December 21

Friday, December 21, 2018 - 5:21pm

It was another brutal day for the stockroaches as the global markets continue to contract faster than the Fed contracts its balance sheet. And it looks like next week may hold more of the same.

So we begin today with these two charts. The first is a weekly S&P and the second is a...

Thursday Conversation - Grant Williams

A discussion of the US$ and the gold standard.

Thursday, December 20, 2018 - 4:19pm

With all sorts of uncertainty ahead in 2019, what a great time to check in with Grant Williams, sound money advocate and co-founder of Real Vision.

Grant and I recorded this on Wednesday, just after the release of the FOMC Fedlines. And what a great time to visit! Over the course of...
