It’s Wednesday evening, and I can’t help pondering what the world will like when TPTB lose control of “last to go” markets like the “Dow Jones Propaganda Average” and paper gold and silver. Care of the “weapons of mass financial...
Sure, my job is to be even keeled, even when confronted with the daily crime scene manipulated “markets” have become. However, even I have my limits; and watching today’s “trading,” it was hard not to feel nauseous. I mean, today alone,...

I wasn’t planning to write this morning (Friday); and in fact, will have completed this article before the December NFP payroll report is released. Regarding said report, my advice is the same as always regarding the “island of lies”...
