did i miss something?

May be an image of 2 people, motorcycle and text that says 'SOMEWHERE BETWEEN 1992 AND 2022 Loos THINGS WENT HORRIBLY WRONG'

I totally agree; a 25 basis point raise with the pledge that they will “temporarily” pause.

I have a little money that will be buying some PSLV and PHYS on any down openings…..

50 DMA

Posted by Buygold @ 20:42 on March 21, 2023  

GDX and the HUI both closed right on their 50’s and GDXJ broke below but not much. Hoping we open a little lower or flat and go into the meeting flat.

I get the feeling that some punters are thinking they’ll cut, but I don’t think they will. Leaning toward .25 hike while announcing a pause. The .25 hike is just to save face IMHO.

Who knows? Maybe everything’s fixed and they’ll do .50 bips.  🙂

Anyone mentions peace and the neocons freak out. These death lovers make me sick! I think that’s great if China can broker a deal. The world doesn’t want more war.

Ipso, maddog

Posted by Buygold @ 15:24 on March 21, 2023  

Ipso – interesting that when we are weakened in the Middle East, peace breaks out. If China brokers some peace deal in Ukraine, our Neocons will blow a gasket. Lindsay Graham will be calling for nukes.

maddog – this is a pretty rough ride today and AG is leading the way down. I’d think that some of that Jerritt Canyon might have been baked into the share price already, but at least not the last 25%.

Give me a few more points on the HUI and I’m ready for tomorrow. 🙂

GLD has support right here. See if we can get some shorts to cover.

You can hope that could happen but there’s the unknown. Even if they only go 25 they could say something about future hikes because they still trying to get the inflation down and finding it’s not gonna be easy with the printing press running in the background working against them. It went from zero to what 5 now so the inflation numbers even at their highest of 9 something should be lower now. So how many times are they going to have to raise it while at the same time their spending and giving away our money before the financial system starts to melt down.
So I’m guessing not just what they say about now but any forward looking statements. Hopefully short term anyways they won’t.
I dumped AG last year.

Wow u nip out and this happens….scum go ape

Posted by Maddog @ 14:48 on March 21, 2023  

If this is typical of the scum/fed, then they are smashing PM’s because they will only raise 25 or barely anything, or nothing…this is their new game pulverise PM;s before bullish news comes out, so any rally is within recent ranges….

an expensive day here as I need a new diff in my car …….and ‘effing First Majestic sure ain’t gonna pay for it…..grrrrrrr!!!!!

Morning maddog, you too Ipso

Yes, good Kunstler. He’s right about a lot of things. Interesting to hear him trash Democrats, since I’m pretty sure he’s been one most of his life. He’s done a 180 since then, realizing that his party is nuts.

This is a bigger hit than I thought we’d get today, but again, it’s light volume to the downside. I’d like to see the shares gain back about half their losses and not be in such a big hole going into the close. Probably get some downside follow through tomorrow am and stabilize by announcement time.

Still think we rally tomorrow on the Fed announcement, unless they raise 50 bips. Everything else should be a tailwind for our pm’s.

Part of me thinks it’s the Fed in there buying our bonds. Almost seems to me they were raising until they found a tipping point, and it appears the tipping point is the Fed Funds rate at 4.5%. I’d expect bonds to rally tomorrow as well.

Strong day tomorrow and we finish the week positive. JMHO

Not ESG-Friendly: Insurers Junk Entire EVs For Minor Accidents

It’s a surprise that Reuters has published an article revealing that the electric vehicle revolution might not be as environmentally friendly as automakers claim. Furthermore, a scratched or slightly damaged battery pack could lead insurance companies to scrap the entire car.

“We’re buying electric cars for sustainability reasons,” Matthew Avery, research director at automotive risk intelligence company Thatcham Research, said.

Avery pointed out, “an EV isn’t very sustainable if you’ve got to throw the battery away after a minor collision.”

A Tesla battery pack costs tens of thousands of dollars and represents a large percentage of the vehicle’s price tag. Insurance companies have found that it’s uneconomical to replace battery packs if damaged.

I figure you’re right. Eventually the truth will come out. I’d guess that the management of the gold and silver ETFs are looking into which countries don’t have extradition treaties with the US.

I love reading Kunstler. He’s turned to the right in the past few years.

Indonesia To Pull The Plug On Visa And Mastercard, President Calls Them A ‘problem’

there are over 1 billion people in Indonesia and Western sanctions against Russia are cited as a warning…..the move against the Dollar gains strength.

This is a big deal. I’d like to see Israel normalize relations with Syria. Of course Syria would need to kick out the Iranians first.

Pullback day. Little bit of a headwind in the 10 yr as it is up 9 bips.

Oil up almost 2%, Bitcoin up, Dollar down.

This looks like a targeted hit on the pm sector, but SLV is only down $.01, GLD down $1.40

I think this is the dip to buy either today or maybe even tomorrow morning. I think pm’s rally hard after the Fed announcement, sort of contrary to the usual treatment.
