    Why was no special prosecutor appointed to investigate Hillary?
    Why was their no special prosecutor appointed for Pizzagate?
    Why is their no special prosecutor appointed for Fast and Furious?

    Because Trump is a wishy-washy incompetent amateur.

      The DOJ hired Mueler to make the swamp happy. Mueler will find no evidence, as there is none….I’m sure Mueler is put there to keep an eye on McCabe as well. The DOJ can focus on more pressing matters, like draining the swamp! It’s a good move IMO. And second guessing Trump hasent really worked out for anyone, now has it?!

    Al Its reality time. Comey was smeared , and has notes that show Trump lied [ AGAIN ] The Repubs will have to remove him the Dems cant they dont have the power . Trump will Resign , or be Impeached by end of 2017. He cant control himself, and is not the efficient businessman he said he was. Prayfor Sanity. .

      Comey has lied in the p[ast and shows democrat-leaning bias.

      Trump also has lied in the past.

        It is interesting that if Comey thought there was any Obstruction of Justice or may now claim this, he has committed a violation of U.S. code by not reporting it immediately to the U.S. Attorney General. (It will be interesting if his “memo” self-incriminates him.)

    what did The American public do when they heard about the disclosures that The Clintons were corrupt. Did they rise in wrath to punish the offenders. No they reserved their judgement for those who insisted on bringing the facts to life. No they blamed people who tried to bring the facts to life as being “Bolsheviks”. America is in deep decline and they blame people who don’t agree with them as being unpatriotic. DT

    Banker: “One Million Will March On Washington If They Impeach Trump. They Will Be Armed”

    Sometime contributor Bon Scott who happens to be not only a Trump supporter but more importantly a Constitutional expert and Big “L” Libertarian had this to say in response the ‘Impeach Trump’ escalation.

    10,000,000 people will march on Washington if they try to impeach Trump… they will be heavily armed. I will be one of them. No kidding
    While our colleague seems given to hyperbole consider this. Last year as early as February he said:

    “Trump can win. Ignore the polls. Polls are meaningless in an election with so many “shock events”. The truth is Donald Trump can win the election in a landslide.

    Trump-Xi Deal Could Fuel A U.S. LNG Boom

    The glut is still here, and there is no gas-related OPEC to try and do anything about it, so prices are bound to stay low for a while longer. For how long, it is difficult to say. Capturing a piece of the Chinese market may be a challenge but the rewards to be reaped sure look like it’s worth it.

    TLT priced in GLD gapped down and spent the rest of the day filling that gap. I see no reason to think that TLT:GLD is not putting in a very large top and that will be great for the gold sector.

    Huge gap down in GCC this morning. Stick a fork in commodities for the next 4-6 weeks. Retest of the 2016 lows incoming. I expect at least a retest of the lows in GDX as well. Silver miners should be decapitated.

    There is absolutely nothing bullish about SLV:GLD on the daily or weekly charts. Nothing. If the cyclists are right and gold drops significantly from here, the ratio is going to get destroyed. We really should not be breaking below the 2015 lows if this is really a new bull. All will be revealed soon enough.

      Spanky, being a contrarian would make your life less stressful. There’s plenty that is bullish about the SLV:GLD chart. Sure, it could go lower but the odds are good that it wouldn’t be much.

      This sector is no place for a price chaser unless he’s a deft trader.

    $CDNX–they will never make it easy. Putting in a topping candle this week. I suspect that they will slam it down hard for at least one week in the coming few weeks to send the stochastics into oversold territory. I’ll admit the chart looks overall bullish to me, but in the short run, they can and will take it anywhere they want to create a bottom.

    If it rallies hard along with GCC tomorrow, then I could see us staying in a tight range even into the June FOMC. But when have they ever just let miners just gently rise from a neutral position. It never happens. There is always a shakeout that scares the bejeezus out everyone before any kind of breakout. I expect no different this time (if this is even a bull market).

      lol…yah CDNX is so manipulated….look at your own chart as CDNX ran hard Jan 2016 into the pm sector top last summer most mining stocks put in 200-500–800% pops…manipulated.lol

      Spanky, a lot more than just precious metals, or commodities in general, are represented in that index.


      • On May 18, 2017 at 10:09 am,
        spanky says:

        Understood, but it is pretty clear to me that a bottom in $CDNX is a necessary but insufficient factor in the miners finding a bottom. Again, it’s hard to deny the overlap in pivot points between the two.
