TFMR Podcast - Thursday, December 12

Thursday, December 12, 2019 - 5:11pm

It was another brutal day of trade war news. However, with the prospect of some of this finally being put behind us, maybe the Comex metals can begin to rally on actual fundamentals and leave behind the whims of the headline-scanning HFTs.

For today, a discussion of some of those...

Through The Meat Grinder

The madness is never-ending.

Thursday, December 12, 2019 - 10:22am

We concluded yesterday's podcast summary with this warning: "For the reasons discussed in this podcast, expect a very busy and volatile day tomorrow as this week is far from over". And now, with the recent Trade War tweets from Trump, we're getting pounded lower once again.

As of about...

TFMR Podcast - Wednesday, December 11

Wednesday, December 11, 2019 - 5:44pm

Chief Goon Powell confirmed two items today that helped the Comex precious metals. Now lets see if we can navigate all of the potential late-week landmines and finish up with some green candles.

Regarding the fedlines, Powell confirmed that he expects ZERO rate hikes through 2020. He...

Another Glimpse of CGP

The fun starts at 2:00 pm ET

Wednesday, December 11, 2019 - 10:38am

Our purple tie buddy will emerge from his FOMC confab later today. He'll stammer and obfuscate in an attempt to swindle the mainstream masses into believing that all is well and that their Fed Masters have everything under control.

So you know what that means...HAT CONTEST! You've got...

TFMR Podcast - Tuesday, December 10

Tuesday, December 10, 2019 - 3:07pm

In this day of preparation for tomorrow's FOMC, your host has found some information that requires your immediate attention. So it works out well that this podcast has been recorded and posted ahead of the usual schedule.

Thanks again for your patience and understanding with my unusual...

On The Edge of Insanity

The madness never ends.

Tuesday, December 10, 2019 - 11:03am

How long have we dealt with "trade war" headlines and tweets? Is it over a year now? And there's no end in sight. This week, all of the algos react to anything related to tariffs. Next week, it will be back to phase one negotiations...and on...and on... and on.

In the absence of any...

TFMR Podcast - Monday, December 9

Monday, December 9, 2019 - 5:58pm

It has been a crazy day and I must confess to not being totally up-to-speed on all that occurred in the precious metals and other markets. However, with all that's pending for later this week, it's still important to record and post this podcast.

So, for today, a discussion of the...

A Busy Week Ahead

Monday, December 9, 2019 - 9:30am

With the BLSBS behind us, it's time to start a new week and look ahead to the remainder of the month. There are just three weeks remaining in 2019 and things are still progressing toward the targets we laid out back in January.

My hope is that you had a relaxing and pleasant weekend....

TFMR Podcast - Friday, December 6

Friday, December 6, 2019 - 5:37pm

The market magicians pull another statistical rabbit from their hat today as an audaciously suspect "jobs report" is shoved down our collective throat. This sends your host looking for an adult beverage with which to chase it...but not before first recording this podcast.

What's the...

This Week with John and Steve

Another Batchelor-Cohen Cold War update.

Friday, December 6, 2019 - 3:57pm

It has been such a busy week that I completely forgot to post the audio of the latest Batchelor-Cohen Cold War update.

In correcting my oversight and posting this today, my hope is that you'll take some time to listen over the I plan to do.


Peak Bullshit

Garbage in, garbage out.

Friday, December 6, 2019 - 11:13am

You've heard the theories of "peak crude oil" and even "peak gold". My friend Chris Martenson runs a website called "Peak Prosperity". And today we may finally reached "Peak Bullshit" with the release of a US jobs report that was jaw-droppingly outrageous.

Unfortunately, "peak bullshit...

Ahead of The BLSBS

Friday will be an interesting day.

Thursday, December 5, 2019 - 10:55am

It has been a long week of economic datapoints and most of them have been dismal to lousy. But tomorrow brings the monthly BLSBS which, of course, brings with it the possibility of increasing our gains or completely wiping them out.

Recall that Wednesday's ADP jobs report showed the...

SPECIAL PODCAST: A look at Gold X Mining Corp with Brian Paes Braga

Wednesday, December 4, 2019 - 2:00pm

I think I may have come across an interesting situation here. When you have a few minutes, please give a listen to this interview.

Banks In Charge

Mr. Potter would be proud.

Wednesday, December 4, 2019 - 10:54am

The Banks are continuing their fight against price and momentum as yesterday saw another massive increase in total contract issuance. And now today, any sort of gold-positive news is being aggressively sold.

But it is what it is and it's not as if it has never been this way. What's...

TFMR Podcast - Tuesday, December 3

Tuesday, December 3, 2019 - 6:08pm

It was a busy day and it saw both Comex metals rally substantially. While this is all well and good, we know that most of the gains can be taken back on a Trump tweet or Kudlow mumble. So let's assess where we are and then get ready for a volatile remainder of the week.

For today, just...

On With The Jackass

From Jackass lips to your ears.

Tuesday, December 3, 2019 - 3:20pm

As you may have noticed, we did not have our annual Thanksgiving visit from The Golden Jackass. One of the reasons why is this recording today.

Jim has joined his own podcast network and I encourage you to check it out. And it was for this network that Jim and I recorded this...

Trade War Giveth

And it's leading to a breakout in gold that might actually hold this time.

Tuesday, December 3, 2019 - 9:58am

We've certainly had to deal with our share of "trade war taketh away" lately. So, when Trump suddenly began to squawk overnight about the likelihood of no deal with China, we got ourselves a bit of a rally.

So now the only question far can we rally before Kudlow or some such...

TFMR Podcast - Monday, December 2

Monday, December 2, 2019 - 5:48pm

After an early selloff, some truly lousy US economic data allowed the bond market to rally and drag the Comex PMs along for the ride.

For today, just a discussion of the day that was and then we ask you to review these two links:
