Cheer up!  We might get a sunspot or two in the next year.  And it should be warmer in about five years.   Light a big bonfire.  🙂

Well damn fellas

I hope those sunspots come back pretty soon because it’s about to get really cold in my part of the world.

Hi Maya, I’m with you on every point. Just trying to expose the global warming BS. Thanks for a great response and all the best from Silverngold.

It’s the bottom of the 11-year sunspot cycle… after a particularly weak “maximum” five years ago…. this is why we now have global cooling instead of the over-hyped global warming of years past.   Notify the climate police!!  The sun’s output is the source of our climate changes… not your car exhaust.   And I’m living on a volcano whose pollution output far exceeds anything manmade.

This is only day 100 without a sunspot.  In 2009 the sun went 260 days without a spot at the last cycle minimum.


Without the sunspots lighting up the ionosphere for radio reflections, the shortwave radio bands really suck right now.  No fears… it will be much better in six years.

FWIW but lots of food for thought

Yep, It’s like getting someone working for one side working for the other like a mole. He’s not up for election anytime soon so don’t think he’ll be able to run again by the time he’s up to run again. Until then he’ll be a obstructionist or absent to vote for his parties concerns.

Every Democrat Voted No

Arizona GOP Sen. John McCain is viewed more favorably by Democrats and independents than Republicans, a CNN Poll conducted by SSRS released Tuesday shows.

Sixty-eight percent of Democrats said they had a favorable opinion of the Republican senator, whereas 48% of independents and 46% of Republicans responded the same way.


At least we’re trying to hold steady

Posted by Buygold @ 13:45 on December 19, 2017  

although we should probably be doing better with the USD down.

R640 – I think we’re probably going to need a couple more weeks of good COT numbers if they are going to have any effect. I’m assuming of course that the COT’s aren’t rigged like everything else… 🙂

Eeos–U ask the paradigmatic question that applies to all advisers-brokers-letter writers-if they’re so smart why are they peddling subscriptions-why not trade their own money and get rich?

Posted by Richard640 @ 13:34 on December 19, 2017  

I guess one way of looking at the issue would be to ask why are there coaches if they cannot get on the field and play the game…but that’s really no answer

A lotta good those “incredible” COT stats did for G&S….

Out-of-the-money put option prices have skyrocketed on this commodity play

by Bernie Schaeffer

But whether bitcoin is solely to blame for gold’s recent drop — and one could argue that the stronger dollar and tax reform optimism have also played a part — is neither here nor there. What fascinates me is the recent spike in the cost of “crash protection” on the VanEck Vectors Gold Miners ETF (GDX), which invests in the shares of gold miners.

Specifically, the 10-day moving average of GDX’s put/call skew on 5% out-of-the-money (OOTM) options – which compares implied volatility (IV) readings for OOTM puts against OOTM calls — has skyrocketed by more than 20% over the past 20 sessions, and stands at its highest point since December 2014. This indicates traders are bidding up the odds of an extended decline in GDX shares, which fell more than 8% from their Nov. 28 intraday high of $23.17 to their Dec. 12 intraday low of $21.27 – marking territory not charted since July for the fund.

Since 2006, there have been just eight surges of that magnitude in this barometer, including the one that flashed just last week. Three of the signals sounded before the March 2009 bottom, and the other four prior to last week’s occurred between September 2013 and November 2014. While I’d like to offer actionable insight into how GDX might perform after this most recent surge in OOTM put demand, the historical price action after such signals is mixed, not to mention very heavily skewed by the November 2008 signal, after which GDX skyrocketed more than 79% in six months, as the throes of the financial crisis sparked a run on “safe haven,” tangible assets like gold.

Perhaps the most “concrete” conclusion to be drawn from the data: GDX tends to be more volatile than usual in the intermediate term, following quick-and-dirty spikes in its OOTM put/call skew, as measured by a bigger-than-usual standard deviation of returns following these signals.

@Maddog re Manipulated Gold Prices, Low Interest Rates, Fed Bond Buying, Infrastructure Spending, Modifying NAFTA, Tariffs On Steel and Aluminum, Income and Profit Tax Cuts, Low Wages Concern…

Posted by Mr.Copper @ 12:06 on December 19, 2017  

Did I miss anything? Probably a lot more, panic and concern moves regarding the new world order global commune-ity gov’t.

The same Business/Fed ass holes that wanted lower wages (and materials) in the 1970s, got their way. Now they realize it was PROFITABLE short term (36 years ’72 to 2008) but counter productive long term.

The bastards used to say inflation was caused by too high wages. A “wage price spiral” the scum bags called it.

They, TPTB, will “get theirs” probably suddenly.

Au back < $ 1260….it's all so obvious.

Hamas Torturing Militants In Crackdown On “Unauthorized” Rocket Attacks Against Israel

The Palestinian militant group Hamas which governs the Gaza Strip has reportedly initiated a crackdown on Salafist fighters within its ranks who are responsible for instances of unauthorized rocket fire into Israel, which has been sporadic in the last two weeks since President Trump’s contentious recognition of Jerusalem as the Israeli capital on December 6th.

The Times of Israel cites Hamas media statements as well as unnamed intelligence sources to report that the group has arrested a growing number of Islamist militants in recent days amidst the crackdown and further that some among them were likely tortured in an effort to clamp down on the attacks, which have invited devastating air and tank counter assaults by Israeli forces on Hamas locations.

“According to Hamas, among those arrested were operatives responsible for the recent rocket launches. It’s likely that some of these men were tortured by Hamas’ security people,” the report states. Hamas is further signaling to Egyptian intelligence and other regional Arab governments that it wishes to avoid escalation with Israel according to the report.

The word is that Merkel is gonna fire Junker, for being a piss artist, which he is and take the job of President for herself….that way she can resign as Chancellor, before she is fired.
