On Monday, I published an article (click here) and additional Facebook posts (click here) explaining that we were inside a 24 hour window where precious metals were likely setting a bottom. Upside momentum has faded and bullion manipulators are going to try to pressure prices downward. So far, the bottom has held but Thursday and Friday are key and Fed Chair Yellen is speaking before Congress on Thursday. December will see a 25 basis point Fed Funds rate hike, and this is already priced into the precious metals market but that doesn’t mean the market will not be attacked on Thursday! If we get an attack timed in association with Yellen’s Congressional testimony, it should be short-lived.

Markets when nuts in the election aftermath. Eric nailed the election outcome almost to the state with his impressive Facebook forecast (click here), articles (e.g., click here) and multiple interviews in the week leading up to the election. Nevertheless, he jokes about the market having handed him his head as the immediate gold reversal went against his trades, November 9th. The intermediate- and long-term are going to be defined by bond market dynamics and their interface with all other markets. For context and as referenced during the show, see:

Precious metals mining companies are going to face financing difficulty in the intermediate-term. Burack talks about how there’s not enough capital available to build a lot of new gold and silver mines to offset depletion from producing mines. This means there will be future supply problems that will be solved with higher prices.
1) George Soros return nomination for bankrolling anti-Trump post-election protests;
2) Hillary Clinton return nomination for blaming Obama, the FBI and maybe Obama’s dog for her loss;
3) The Podesta Brothers – anyone been to a good “spirit cooking” lately?
4) Mainstream media for their one sided PR/propaganda coverage promoting a Hillary Clinton win prior to the election
