TFMR Podcast - Friday, October 18

Friday, October 18, 2019 - 5:11pm

After where we were in Tuesday, it's a pleasure to report that we ended the week with green candles painted onto the weekly chart. I'll take it! Attention now begins to shift to the REPO/QE situation and the next FOMC slated for the last week of this month.

For today, just a recap of...

Friday Morning Open Thread

Friday, October 18, 2019 - 9:40am

Your host has found himself behind the eight ball in terms of time this morning. Thus, this brief post that we'll try to update a little later on.

For now, the Comex metals are down just a bit as bonds have rallied (and the POSX has declined) a little in the past few hours. It seems...

Thursday Conversation - Dave Kranzler

Thursday, October 17, 2019 - 12:44pm

Our old pal Denver Dave stopped by today for this entertaining and informative discussion. If you're interested in the precious metals and mining shares, you should be sure to give a thorough listen to this free, public podcast.

Yes, this podcast clocks in at 37 minutes but I promise...

Song For Someone

There is a dark that we shouldn't doubt.

Thursday, October 17, 2019 - 9:12am

Another string of dismal US economic numbers this morning are not enough to jump start Comex gold and silver. But that's OK. These numbers certainly aren't enough to jump start the US economy, either, as it slowly grinds to a stand-still and contracts toward recession.

Today's data...

TFMR Podcast - Wednesday, October 16

Wednesday, October 16, 2019 - 4:51pm

Comex Digital Gold today recouped much of its losses from yesterday and is once again up a few dollars on the week. Can we hold and extend from here and finish the week with a green candle?

For today, just a brief podcast as I implore you to spend some time listening to Batchelor and...

Batchelor and Cohen Talk Turkey

An update on The New Cold War

Wednesday, October 16, 2019 - 4:09pm

With the US moving out and Russia moving in, another new chapter in The New Cold War is being written. In this abbreviated podcast, Batchelor and Cohen provide historical background and current perspective to the rapidly-changing situation.

As always, please be sure to listen. Nowhere...

Bond Market Buggers

And gold suffers the consequences.

Wednesday, October 16, 2019 - 10:52am

Despite a truly lousy US retail sales report, the US bond market is selling off again today and this is, of course, leading to an erosion of early gains in Comex Digital Gold, too. So what's behind this incessant bond market selling? It's impossible to know for certain but we can speculate....

TFMR Podcast - Tuesday, October 15

Tuesday, October 15, 2019 - 5:19pm

It was a frustrating day of contrary trading and stock market hype. But we'll try to remember that Comex gold and silver are both still up nearly 20% since late May while we attempt to summarize the day's events and look ahead to tomorrow.

For today, a discussion of these two links...

The Boys Are Back In Town

Them wild-eyed boys that had been away.

Tuesday, October 15, 2019 - 10:36am

In deference to Thin Lizzy, whom today received a nomination to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the boys are indeed back in town after the Columbus Day bank holiday and, once Comex trading began in New York, prices were smashed in their usual manner.

Wasn't Monday nice? Just some...

TFMR Podcast - Monday, October 14

Monday, October 14, 2019 - 4:16pm

It was a quiet day of holiday trading but it's back to business tomorrow so please have a listen and get ready for a busy week ahead.

For today, we spend the first 2/3 of this podcast discussing this link:...

Bank Holiday

Could they take the whole week off?

Monday, October 14, 2019 - 11:04am

It's Columbus Day in the U.S. and all of the Banks are closed. This also means that there is no trading in treasuries or treasury futures, too. YIPPEE!! Is there any way we can get these freaking criminals to take the rest of the month off? It's awful nice not having them around!


TFMR Podcast - Friday, October 11

Friday, October 11, 2019 - 5:42pm

By the grace of God, this agonizing week has finally drawn to a close. On the bright side, it's hard to imagine how next week could be we've got that going for us.

For today, a punch-drunk general discussion of the Trade War madness followed by a rundown of...

TFMR Media This Week

Friday, October 11, 2019 - 4:00pm

Created primarily for newsletter subscribers, here's a free link to all of the media appearances we made this week.

Back on Tuesday, it was a pleasure to appear on the TD Ameritrade network: https://...

O Death, Where Is Thy Sting?

Friday, October 11, 2019 - 10:34am

What has been about the single most agonizing and painful week in recent memory for the precious metals finally draws to a close.

Oh my gosh, am I ever ready for the weekend! Consider all of the stuff that has happened this week which is VERY gold positive:

  • zero/negative
  • ...

Thursday Conversation - Willem Middelkoop

Thursday, October 10, 2019 - 1:00pm

Our old friend Willem Middelkoop is a commodity fund manager, geo-political analyst and best-selling author. With all that's going on in the world, we were definitely overdue for this conversation.

As with all Thursday Conversations, I asked Will to focus on three primary topics:...

China Syndrome Worsens

Radiation poisoning preferable to watching Comex.

Thursday, October 10, 2019 - 10:16am

Sticking with the theme of the week, The China Syndrome has reached its peak intensity today as Trade War peace talks begin in Washington. But Comex gold is getting smashed so it most all be going swimmingly.

This is so freaking ridiculous that it makes ME want to...

TFMR Podcast - Wednesday, October 9

Wednesday, October 9, 2019 - 4:57pm

Trade War terrors and Trump talking tough on Turkey key a tumultuous time for timid traders.

Let's begin today with these connected items:

When QE Is Not QE

Symantic bullshit in the 21st century.

Wednesday, October 9, 2019 - 11:08am

What's that old saying about how if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck?

I think we covered this pretty well in yesterday's podcast but just to be sure, let's try to summarize this again. Here's a tweet I sent out to the world earlier this morning:...

TFMR Podcast - Tuesday, October 8

Tuesday, October 8, 2019 - 4:27pm

It was a restless day, only to be saved by an appearance by Chief Goon Powell who proudly proclaimed that the next "large scale asset purchase program" will begin "soon".

China Syndrome

Trade War peace talks are all that matters this week.

Tuesday, October 8, 2019 - 10:06am

After getting blasted lower yesterday on Trade War Peace Talk optimism, the Comex precious metals are spiking back higher today as that same optimism fades away.

So let's start there as that's the biggest news of the day thus far...knowing full well that it could all turn around with...
