A Look Into Copper, The CRB, and The Fed’s Strategy To March

Doc joins me today to answer some of your questions from his last interview. We start with comments on the speech made by Powell how the markets are reacting. It is crucial to understand the Fed’s strategy into March. Then we jump into the copper market and CRB charts. These are also telling us a lot about the health of the markets and inflation.

        President Trump is learning that when your running on somebody else’s money you don’t always get your way. President Trump did the clown dance and said he was going to get Mexico to pay for the wall. Wall or no wall, this will not solve America’s problems. We spend 600 Billion for defense, and we can cough up 5B for a wall?
        I left you an answer to the Pd question on the other blog.

    I must admit Doc, I saw the title of the segment and thought I would hear what I wanted to hear. ” that copper was going Up “.
    I must say, I still think copper is a buy right here. I’m still waiting for a buy signal, but that is soon. At least IMO.
    Look at the gold to silver ratio chart. It looks like gold is about to get hit and silver maintains a bit of value. I think gold is heading to 1055 or 1060 in the future. And I think silver has prettymuch made it’s double bottom.

    Fed comments were good. All BS from those piles of sh~t.

      Chartster: As long as your putting it out there you think Copper is a buy, what kind of time frame are you looking at for selling? Unless of course you have Children and are thinking of giving them your position as an inheritance.I have some warrants on the 2nd largest Au,Cu Mb deposit on the planet and was wondering.

        I think commodities (especially copper stocks) are about to hit a major long bull run. But I wouldn’t hold anything long term. (charting)
        Physical commodities are good long term, stocks are good short and mid term. IMO)
        I say that when I’m about to buy some oil rigs at a 10 year contract for royalties. But it’s different, because it’s a physical deal I can see and touch. I know the people and the value of the deposit (long term). I’ll do fine even if I do 60 barrels a month at 40$ without looking at it. (no chart needed)

    The US MOAB is larger and heavier and requires a large cargo plane, not a regular bomber for the same explosive force.

    Matthew do you believe one more drop/washout could happen before the precious metals go much higher?

    As a side not continue to have 4 precious metals stocks from long term.

    I added impact about a month ago at .25 after your strong suggestion. Keep in mind Matthew that I personally won’t rule out another washout drop and keep a steady eye on that 14.5 gap on the weekly. However if she does drop I’m a buyer and I will buy this one anything south of .20..

    Cheers and thank you as always!

      Glen, if you’re talking about a washout that takes the miners to or near their recent multi year lows, then no, I don’t believe that will happen. To even have a shot at such action, there would probably have to be an outright crash in the stock market and I don’t see that either.
      If I end up wrong, I think you’re right to buy as it would surely represent a “blood in the streets” opportunity and wouldn’t last long.
