Crypto is definitely a part of it, but it has been almost 10 years now since the GFC, and 6-7 years since the PM bull peaked. Anyone who was going to get into PMs due to the rigged system is already in. The "new money" isn't flowing in (in the U.S.) but just the regular buys of people who are already stackers. The younger crowd is likely more interested in crypto than PMs for multiple reasons.

Your average college grad, 5 years out of college was just graduating high school when the big stock market crash happened and perhaps he remembers that craziness. Then they are over burdened with student debt, looking at high real estate prices, can't afford to have kids, holding off on marriage, etc. So the little $$$ he has left over isn't going into stocks which might net him 5-15% annually, or PMs which have netted negative returns the last 6 years. If he can save any money, he takes a punt on cryptos because if he can 10x his $1,000 that is real money. PMs might be the smart, conservative, long-term play but he has to worry about finding and affording a lady, kids, a mortgage, while incomes stagnate. One thing is for sure: it has nothing to do with the Patriots ;)

I think Crypto plays a part but the flat market and boring releases also contribute to the quiet. As was mentioned, potential new stackers are putting their money (of which there is a finite amount) into crypto. Veteran stackers are also diverting funds into crypto, trying to play the small bumps in the market, and just picking up favored pieces.

Given it has been a while since a large sustained fluctuation in PM prices or a new release has it it out of the park (GB candidate) it leaves little to discuss in the PM world where as the instability of the crypto leads to much talk.

I hope I’m not duplicating the following info.

Tomorrow morning in the US is the first “Super Blue Blood Moon” since 1866.
A Blue Moon is the second full moon of the month, we get that ~ every other year.
A Super Moon is when the Moon makes it’s closest approach to the earth. The moon can appear ~ 14% larger and 30% brighter. When a full eclipse happens with these two events happening, the Moon appears to pick up a red color, hence the Blood Moon.
The time of this depends on where you are. In Chicago the whole thing will happen between 5am and 7:10am, 6:15am - 7am will be the best part. An hour earlier EST, an hour later MST, etc. My son in Asia will see it at 7:30pm.
Google your location to see exact time. If you’re up taking a bathroom break and have no clouds, take a look out the window.
Enjoy

Leading debt slaves to the slaughter with the allure of a free lunch. How much longer can the mania phase last? It's not a well kept secret any longer.

Maybe it doesn't matter what bandwagon the millennials are on. The older generation has the money. Debt will only grease the wheels for as long as the working class can shoulder the burdens of socialism and inflation. One day when money doesn't grow on trees, and has to be spent with scrutiny, it will be interesting how tastes can change.

Agreed. If you've ever seen the videos about what happens when you flush, you certainly wouldn't want anything in that room to ever get near your mouth. :thumbdown:

A cancer 'vaccine' is completely eliminating tumors in mice

A new cancer treatment experiment at Stanford University that used immune-stimulators to target tumors in mice had remarkably encouraging results.

After injecting a combination of two immune boosters directly into solid mouse tumors, the research team said the vaccination eliminated all traces of the specifically targeted cancer from the animal's entire body — including metastases that were previously untreated.

sickening

Postby mnymgr1 » Fri Feb 02, 2018

because teams collectively don't want, need or otherwise have any interest in overpaid, underworked prima-donnas (aka professional baseball players)....this agent is so upset that he has suggested a work stoppage / slow down for spring training due to the fact that so many free agents are still looking for jobs. Wonder what all these athletes would do if all major league teams decided that minor leaguers could fill the seats just as well as overpaid players ?
Be great to see something like that

Wrong:

While extremely rare, there have been similar cases of estranged parents and children forming sexual relationships. In New Mexico, a mother and son spoke to media in 2016 about their sexual relationship in an attempt to gain attention for "genetic sexual attraction," (GSA) or sexual feelings between relatives who meet for the first time as adults.

Another story that seems like the date should be April 1st:

The CEO Of PepsiCo Said They're Considering Making Chips For Women

"The greatest injustice that women face is the crunchiness of chips not tailor-made for our feminine mouths."

A Hughes failure: Flat Earther rocketeer can't get it up yet again

Limousine driver, self-taught rocket maker, and headline generator "Mad" Mike Hughes hoped to blast off his homemade rocket from private land in Amboy, California, and have the device reach an altitude of 1,800 feet. Live footage of the launch was sold on a pay-per-view channel at $5 a pop, however fans simply got an eyeful of the fella sitting on his tod for 11 minutes before admitting defeat.
