Saturday, January 25, 2020 - 12:48pm

In this time of growing concern regarding the Chinese coronavirus outbreak, it's difficult to discern facts from fear. Fortunately, our friend Chris Martenson stopped by this morning to record this extremely informative and helpful podcast.

You've likely known of Chris for years now as...

TFMR Podcast - Friday, January 24

Friday, January 24, 2020 - 5:28pm

It was a solid end to a green week as the pattern of late week strength holds again. Next week, however, will bring all sorts of volatility so be prepared for what lays ahead.

For today, a general discussion of the day's events. We also look ahead to next week's schedule of economic...

Same Early Week Pattern, Part Two

It's how you end the week that matters.

Friday, January 24, 2020 - 11:01am

Lots of action this morning as the Comex metals reverse to new highs for the week as I type...once again reminding us that it's not how you begin the week that matters.

There's a lot going on so it's difficult to pin today's rally on any one influence. Is it:

  • concern

Somewhere Over Montana

Just a late day update in lieu of a podcast.

Thursday, January 23, 2020 - 7:03pm

Just a few charts and links from 35,000 feet over Montana.

Another interesting day has transitioned into another interesting evening. We're still a few hours away from the Asia open but already this afternoon we saw the regular Globex walk-back. Yes, the bond market backed up a basis...

Back To The Basics

Not-QE is direct debt monetization.

Thursday, January 23, 2020 - 1:20pm

In "2020 Foresight" we focused upon the key drivers of higher precious metal prices in 2020. Namely, lower interest rates and a growing amount of not-QE and direct debt monetization. Well here we are on January 23 and those factors are clearly driving price today.

Let's start with...

The Great Gray North

Watching the gray metals move higher, too.

Wednesday, January 22, 2020 - 12:48pm

It's another day of sideways action in the Comex PMs...which is both good and bad, I suppose. However and as we keep repeating, every day that Comex Digital Gold remains above $1550 is another step toward $1600 and, above there, things will get pretty interesting.

And why is that?...

TFMR Podcast - Tuesday, January 21

Tuesday, January 21, 2020 - 5:06pm

It was a very interesting start to the week with a smash and recovery in the precious metals along with major movements out of the Comex palladium vault. There's a lot to discuss so come on in and let's get started.

For today, a general discussion of the shenanigans in London and New...

Same Early Week Pattern

Once again, repeat after me...

Tuesday, January 21, 2020 - 10:46am

Following along just like last week, gold and silver prices were smashed overnight as soon as London opened...and then smashed again as soon as Comex opened today. And now, just as last week, we must remind you that it's not how you begin the week that matters...

You'll recall last...

TFMR Podcast - Saturday, January 18

Saturday, January 18, 2020 - 10:54am

Please just listen along as we move through these charts:...

Farshad Shirvani has...

Across The Board

Palladium and platinum lead the charge higher.

Friday, January 17, 2020 - 10:30am

It is another good day....and strong start to 2020...for all metals, not just gold and silver, as the rallies in platinum and palladium continue. And you know what they say about rising tides and boats.

Let's just dive right in. Here's the board as I begin typing:...

Kicking Off 2020 with Max and Stacy

Thursday, January 16, 2020 - 10:36am

It's always great fun to be on with Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert and this episode, recorded last Saturday, was no different.

So, since there won't be a podcast today, perhaps this can serve as some additional content. Max and I discuss gold and the miners in this segment which begins...

JBSFC in 2020

Batchelor and Cohen return.

Wednesday, January 15, 2020 - 9:50pm

Batchelor and Cohen returned last evening with their first Cold War podcast of the new year. The guys don't record these podcasts as frequently anymore so, when they do, you should be sure to carve our some time to listen.

Last night's episode was recorded following the final Democrat...

TFMR Podcast - Wednesday, January 15

Wednesday, January 15, 2020 - 6:11pm

It was a busy, news-filled day and it ended with the metals and shares regaining most, if not all, of their early week losses. So where do we go from here and how do we end the week? Come on in and let's talk about it.

We begin this podcast with a discussion of the wacky and unusual...

Stimulate This

More debt for an out-of-control system.

Wednesday, January 15, 2020 - 10:33am

Things were sailing along just fine this morning until news broke that Trump is considering an "election year stimulus plan". The Machines immediately began to sell gold but, since we are not machines, at TFMR we will consider the real world implications of this plan.

For now, it's all...

TFMR Podcast - Tuesday, January 14

Tuesday, January 14, 2020 - 6:18pm

A reversal of the early week beatdown may be in the offing but let's see what economic data the morning brings before getting too optimistic.

For today, we begin with these three links:

It's Only Another Tuesday

Keep your eyes on the prize.

Tuesday, January 14, 2020 - 9:54am

After ten consecutive green candles, an RSI peak of 83 and about $80 of war premium, no one should be surprised that Comex gold has continued to fall this week and we'd warned you on several occasions that this was a likelihood if/when the war tensions simmered down. So now let's take some time...

TFMR Podcast - Monday, January 13

Monday, January 13, 2020 - 4:10pm

It was another down day for the metals and shares but your host is here to remind you again today that both Comex gold and Comex silver have actually had a very nice one-month run. Thus what you are likely seeing is a consolidation of recent gains and not the start of a major selloff.


The New Week Begins

The old adage comes to mind...

Monday, January 13, 2020 - 10:00am

A new week begins and it will be a busy one. Not only are there lingering war fears, there will be renewed talk of "trade optimism" and a boatload of daily economic datapoints.

So we know where price is to begin the week. The question, of course, is where will price end the week?...
