Wednesday brings the conclusion of the first FOMC meeting in 2021. As usual, we'll get a summary at 2:00 pm EST followed by a press conference with Chairman Powell at 2:30 EST. What will he say, and what should we expect the impact to be...
Well, here we go again. It's January, so that means it's annual forecast time—that time of year when I walk the plank knowing full well I may end up plunging into the sea. And for what reason? I'm not sure. The screenshot below is taken...
As you know, the year 2020 saw some remarkable developments for the precious metals. The price of COMEX gold hit new all-time daily highs in August, and price finished at new quarterly highs in June, September, and December. But 2020 was...
Over the past few weeks, we've tried often to remind you that the year 2020 is unfolding almost identically to the year 2019...at least in terms of COMEX precious metal prices. COMEX gold fell from early September to late December last...

Suddenly it seems that nearly all of The Banks and Bullion Banks are raising price forecasts and rallying around the precious metals. Is this a good thing or a bad thing?
So I guess this is how it works now. The dollar index rallies back to reclaim 50% of its losses from Friday, and this prompts enough HFT algo selling that we lose 100% of Friday's gains in the COMEX metals.
While the COMEX digital metals remain in pullback and consolidation mode, the price action may seem eerily similar to some in the sector. Why? Because it IS similar...at least when compared to 2019.
The term “carat” comes from “carob seed,” which was standard for weighing small quantities in the Middle East.
