TFMR Podcast - Tuesday, August 20

Tuesday, August 20, 2019 - 5:34pm

Tuesday was a much better day than Monday and it even yielded a report of another Banker conviction for manipulating the prices of Comex gold and silver. All in all, a great day!

But that manipulation news is so humdrum now that it's not even worth discussing. If you want to read about...

"Don't Save For Retirement" - A Discussion with Dan Ameduri

An interesting discussion of retirement planning in the 21st century.

Tuesday, August 20, 2019 - 12:10pm

Our old pal Dan Ameduri has released his first book today and it comes with the provocative title, "Don't Save For Retirement". What does Dan mean by that title and what message does he hope to spread by writing this new book? Today we ask him for the answers.

This is certainly not...

Bounceback Tuesday

"Dead Cat" or "Bull Market"? You pick.

Tuesday, August 20, 2019 - 11:00am

As Monday's losses are recovered, the question becomes...Is this just a bounce on the way down to $1460 or was Friday-Monday the quick selloff that sets the stage for new 2019 highs?

A lot of that will depend, of course, on tomorrow's PMIs and the Friday Jackson Holedown speech by...

TFMR Podcast - Monday, August 19

Monday, August 19, 2019 - 5:55pm

Another day, another perspective check as the Comex precious metals and mining shares pull back from their recent highs.

For today, we begin with a general discussion and reminder of how bull markets move. From there, a discussion of these three points:...

Time For One Step Back?

However, keep in mind that it's only Monday.

Monday, August 19, 2019 - 10:51am

As we repeatedly state, precious metals bull markets are typically defined by two-steps-forward-and-one-step-back....and it may be time for one step back. However, as we also repeatedly state, it's not how you begin the week that matters, it's how you end it...and today is only Monday....

Thursday Conversation - Alasdair Macleod of GoldMoney

Please be sure to listen to this FREE, PUBLIC podcast.

Friday, August 16, 2019 - 2:00pm

Yes, I realize that it's Friday but this week's schedule is such that this podcast could not be posted on Thursday. Additionally, this discussion with Alasdair is so valuable that I wanted to post it at the top of the TFMR homepage and leave it there all weekend.

My purpose in reaching...

Another Risk-Free Friday

A crazy and volatile week draws to a close.

Friday, August 16, 2019 - 8:28am

On Twitter this morning, I saw where Sven Henrich labeled today as another "risk free Friday", and he's correct. How many times this summer have we seen the "markets" suddenly stabilize and rally into the Friday close? It's magic!

Here's Sven's tweet from a couple hours ago:...

Thursday, August 15, 2019 - 6:56pm

Tomorrow is Friday and, of course, the weekly closes will be important. However, the weekend ahead looks to be volatile and newsworthy so let's be prepared for about anything at any time.

For today, please be sure to see these three links, all from Zerohedge:

Beware The Ides Of August

Tricky Dick's inglorious legacy endures.

Thursday, August 15, 2019 - 10:39am

August 15 is always an auspicious anniversary as it was 48 years ago today that US President Nixon removed any sound money backing of the US dollar by "temporarily" suspending the convertibility of dollars into gold.

So let's start the day with Tricky Dick, himself. Here's the old...

TFMR Podcast - Wednesday, August 14

Wednesday, August 14, 2019 - 5:59pm

It was a wild day and the rest of the week only looks to be even more volatile. So you'd better get in here and have a listen to this podcast.

For today, just a lengthy general discussion where we efficiently as recap the most significant events of the day....

A Silver Roundtable Discussion

Bill Murphy, Rick Rule, David Morgan and some dope with a MacBook.

Wednesday, August 14, 2019 - 3:31pm

Earlier today, it was my distinct pleasure to join Bill Murphy, Rick Rule and David Morgan for a live roundtable and Q&A forum on Philip Kennedy's website. The discussion focused upon the precious metals with a particular emphasis on silver. If you can find the time, you should be sure to...

Batchelor and Cohen Return

The latest on The New Cold War.

Wednesday, August 14, 2019 - 3:30pm

Our friends John and Steve returned last evening for another discussion on the perils of The New Cold War.

The big story last week was the failed Russian cruise missile test that seemed to cause a small-scale nuclear/radiation disaster. Why would the Russians be developing these new...

The Curve Of History

Inversions abound and recession looms.

Wednesday, August 14, 2019 - 9:55am

Let's see. How many times have we written about the yield curve since 2015? Twenty?? Thirty??? Well, it sure is interesting to watch the entire world catch on...seemingly all at the same time!

Here's what might have been post #1 on this subject from January 28, 2015:...

TFMR Podcast - Tuesday, August 13

Tuesday, August 13, 2019 - 5:59pm

It was a wild and volatile day but, in the end, is was just that...a day. By the end of this week, we will look back upon it as either a bump in the road or a possible, short-term peak. However, that's "by the end of the week" and the end of the week is still 72 hours away and God only knows...

A Banker Victory

Trade headlines spark a mass rush for the exits.

Tuesday, August 13, 2019 - 10:10am

In yesterday's podcast, we discussed the idea that global turmoil would lead to a continued surge in bond prices which, in turn, would drive another breakout in CDG and CDS. Up until about 6:00 am EDT, it looked like we were well on our way.

Unfortunately, the global bond market then...

TFMR Podcast - Monday, August 12

Monday, August 12, 2019 - 5:45pm

Oh boy, are we ever on our way to another crazy week! Did you see the bond market today? And how about the events in Hong Kong and Argentina?

Though The Banks are obviously still attempting to restrain price below $1520, if shit spins out of control again overnight (sort of like last...

A Clear and Obvious Cap at $1520

At least The Banks have given us a clear level to watch!

Monday, August 12, 2019 - 10:35am

For months, we've discussed the price target area of $1480-1520. And now, here we are...a few weeks ahead of schedule, actually. Regardless, the price action over the past few days makes it clear that The Banks understand the importance of this level, too.

Again and as a reminder, the...

TFMR Podcast - Friday, August 9

Friday, August 9, 2019 - 5:29pm

It was a fun and volatile week with Comex gold painting its best weekly close since mid-April of 2013. Comex silver appears to be finally breaking out, too, so please be sure to prepare for Monday by listening to this podcast over the weekend.

No links to discuss today as there was...

Closing The Week

Fake gold is dumped in a clear attempt to manage the weekly close.

Friday, August 9, 2019 - 10:57am

We'll try to keep in brief this morning as it's getting late and, really, not much matters other than where prices finish up the day.

And The Banks clearly know this. They came after BOTH gold and silver HARD as soon as London opened for business at 1:00 am CDT...or 7:00 am London....
