    NEM’s weekly bollinger bands (20,2) are the tightest they have been in 20+ years. Similarly, EXK’s weekly bollinger’s are at the bottom of their historical range.

      NEM has steadfastly held within its “Trump Range” of 38.40 and 30.19 since the election. It may have become a bellwether stock for the next breakout — up or down!

        spanky says:

        I’ll be extrmely shocked if NEM just breaks out to the upside from here. When have the miners ever made it so easy? Never. Assuming the miners are in a new bull market, they will likely spike it downwards (maybe bigtime) before letting it reverse higher.

        I hope I am wrong and it can just rally from here on the weekly chart and never look back. Color me skeptical as hell though.

          I’ll be happier when NEM soars over 100.

    I listen to the KER audio-cast on my phone and am rarely able to read comments. So I wasn’t particularly aware of the abuse. However I am very pleased that you took action. Doing so speaks to the integrity of you and the KER. Too often these days ‘other people’ are afraid to speak up again wrong and take action. You are ‘old school’ and I LIKE it !

      Ditto on the Old school…nothing wrong with that…..being disrespectful is not going to cut it going forward….

    Robert Moriarty says:

    I won’t speak for everyone here but I will speak for myself and my group of readers, Excelsior and Matthew both make this site all by themselves. The rest of us are just observers. I was astonished that someone who believed himself to be a “Pro” could be so offensive to some of the most qualified people I know of.

    Thank you for all that you do both of you.

      Thank you Robert, that’s more than generous of you.

        You also make this board great Robert#

          agreed Big Al. Bob’s insights are always worth checking out. (and often quite humorous)

      • On July 11, 2017 at 4:00 am,
        Excelsior says:

        Thanks for the kind words Bob M. There are a number of great contributors on this site, and a free exchange of ideas with mutual respect is all any of us want.

        Ever Upward!

        But, also thanks to the minor players , and the audience…

          Excelsior says:

          Agreed OOTB. The collective wisdom of everyone’s posts and all the special guests that Big Al and Cory bring on is what makes the KER such a hive of activity and insights.

      Well said Robert! And rob you may not post many but you sure post great substance.

      Matt and shad 🙂 keep up the good work.

      I’m in the camp of a bounce here and now but a bottom in the miners august/September.

      Robert I believe it was you or someone else who had posted realstate had put in a top in late 2016 early 2017 in toronto/ Canada. What are your current thoughts and I recently read an article that said we had a drop from average prices of 14 percent since April to now. I’m in the camp it’s all down hill from here with obvious some pops along the way. Curious as to how many of you see it in here. I smell bankruptcy coming sooner rather then later in Ontario.

          Dick Tracy says:

          Our species was smart enough to survive The Great Crash of 1929, but there have been so many changes since then that our species can no longer keep up. We started the snowball that made us reliant on technology, but like the genie leaving the bottle we have lost control. Just consider the changes in technology from the end of The First World War to the end of The Second World War, (Hiroshima and Nagasaki) it is mind boggling and that was only 25 years. Technology is self feeding and exponential in nature, humans are only dust in the wind. DT

        Don’t know why that’s landed here. Was agreeing with RM above.

    Dick Tracy says:

    Do you know what I think is a great idea, re-watch the movie ” The Grapes Of Wrath” starring Henry Fonda. It should be shown in our public schools so people understand how bad things can really get but without social skills ie: a carrying for one another we won’t make it as a species. A few members of my family couldn’t believe what they were seeing, it had them all riveted to a world they have not known. Now do you see how technology has altered our brain chemistry, put down those cell phones and learn how to communicate with your fellow man through caring. DT

      Mr. Tracy,

      We just happen to have read both “East of Eden” and “Cannery Row” very recently in our book club. Steinbeck is an author of substance and I ,for one, learned a lot about the importance of helping others in both of these novels particularly “Cannery Row”

      The one thing I appreciate about our forum and everyone who takes part is that, for the most part, we do care about each other and those who are inappropriate are simply eliminated with approval of others.

      We do have a great group of people here.

    Hey I like all your comments guys. Intelligence and rudeness cannot sit well together.
