Cognitive Dissonance

I had to think long and hard about what exactly to post today without insulting at least half my readership. As you know I have kept political discussions to a minimum as a rule here at Evil Speculator.

Tread Lightly

I just spent half an hour putting together two very juicy looking precious metals setups for you guys when silver suddenly fell off the plate, probably due to Draghi sneezing or passing some type of verbal flatulence.

The situation is even worse over here in Spain where we’ve had on average at least one regional holiday scheduled every week. I kid you not. And that list doesn’t even account for Las Fallas which starts on March 1st and gradually turns Valencia into the Mediterranean equivalent of Sodom and Gomorrah by the time it ends on March 19th.
