Goldseek.com / Silverseek.com President and founder, Peter Spina returns to the show with his mining share analysis, from his family home in the Czech Republic near scenic Prague. Similar to the PMs sector, Prague has emerged from the former communist regime, entering a new Golden Era. Peter outlines the unique character / appeal of the central European culture, including the entrepreneurial spirit amid a populace who truly appreciate the fragility of personal freedom. Peter outlines the remarkable 500% return on 5 of his gold mining candidates recently announced at a Vancouver conference, including Brazil Resources (GOLD.v) which climbed nearly 10 fold. While virtually every PMs stock performed spectacularly in 2016, Peter Spina emphasizes the importance of quality when selecting gold stock portfolio candidates in 2017, such as companies like Silver Wheaton (SWC) and Royal Gold (RGLD). Nevertheless, the guest / host concur that at the core of every successful investment portfolio lies gold / silver bullion, which can then be accentuated with related shares, such as the PMs miner ETF (GDXJ). His expertise enables subscribers to vastly outperform GDXJ, such as Northern Vertex Mining (NEE.v), a company in which he continues to accumulate shares (Figure 1.1). NEE.v is opening a mine in Arizona, producing 42,000 ounces per year at about $700 per ounce. In addition, NEE.v continues substantial exploration work and is located in a favorable location near Las Vegas. The duo also agree that the silver sector represents a remarkable valuation opportunity.

  • According to peer-reviewed literature, each Q-bit has access to an alternative / parallel universe, allowing for an exponential increase in computing speeds.
  • While the outdated quantum computer, D-Wave, was faster than 7 billion human minds, the entire global populace.

Bob Hoye of Institutional Advisors rejoins the show in rare form with timely market commentary and historical perspective. Although a confirmed gold bull, Bob Hoye questions the validity of the gold manipulation story, preferring instead the monitoring of the gold / silver ratio, as a prime indicator of PMs sector sentiment. Currently, indicators suggest ensuing chaos in the credit market via the high yield / low grade bond market. In addition, each time over the past decade that proprietary technical indicators reached current levels, the US stock market reached a critical peak. Moreover, the superstar cryptocurrency Bitcoin revolution recently eclipsed the price of gold for the first time, signifying high demand for currency anonymity. Given the challenges involved with investing in Bitcoins, the only Bitcoin ETF, GBTC is a convenient alternative. Part of the appeal underpinning the Bitcoin phenomenon results from the ease of divisibility of units. Bitcoins are divisible down to a Satoshi, 0.00000001 Bitcoins, one hundred millionth; insuring that no matter how high the price may skyrocket, Bitcoins can be purchased at any increment for any transaction. The bifurcation allows for speculation in Bitcoins in tandem with monetary usage. Bob Hoye applauds cryptocurrency aficionado for moving the global economy away from centralization to a more regional and less authoritarian peer-to-peer model. The breakthrough facilitates greater freedom for digital denizens forcing bureaucrats to conform to the digital revolution. The recent stealth rate hike by the FOMC appears to be a trap set for unsuspecting investors - the FFF contracts predicted several more months before a quarter point hike in the benchmark lending rate. The discussion veers into the realm of quantum mechanics / computing, Q-bits, CERN, the large hadron collider in France / Switzerland and parallel universes. According to peer-reviewed literature, each Q-bit has access to an alternative / parallel universe, allowing for an exponential increase in computing speeds. While the outdated quantum computer, D-Wave, was faster than 7 billion human minds, the entire global populace, the current versions are far faster, making pragmatic formerly impossible computations.

  • Although off topic, Edward Snowden recently announced an intriguing hypothesis regarding extraterrestrial communications, via encryption.

Peter Grandich of Peter Grandich and Company notes, "I haven't been this bullish on gold in 20 years." The duo discuss today's FOMC meeting where concerns over domestic inflation and an overheating economy lead Fed officials to raise the benchmark lending rate by a quarter point as expected, sending the PMs sector sharply higher. The event could signify much better times ahead for gold and silver investors as the US dollar trade may be crowded, yet another significant indication for PM aficionado. In addition, given the Atlanta Federal Reserve's 1% GDP target, policymakers could reverse course as soon as Spring of next year. When merely a fraction of the funds pouring into the US equities / Greenback / energy markets from around the globe are redirected to the PMs sector, the confluence of events will catapult gold and silver investments past their 2011 zeniths. Moreover, several Western US states are adding legislation that makes gold and silver legal tender, removing state capital gains taxes.

  • Another likely explanation for recent volatility includes the upcoming stealth rate hike by Fed policymakers.
  • Chairwoman Janet Yellen's comments last week startled investors.
  • The Fed Funds Futures contracts (FFF) indicates high odds of a rate hike at the upcoming FOMC meeting, slated for March 14-15.
  • The unexpected move will come 4 months earlier than previously forecasted by the FFF.
  • In 2010, the silver market remained subdued for nearly a year, before staging a 200% rally.
  • Given the bottoming price action, the market could be carving out a similar bottom. The guest and host concur that silver is destined for triple digits.
  • According to Zero Hedge, 160 million Americans, over half the country cannot withstand a $500 emergency expense.
  • Such a dire savings dilemma implies that only a small fraction of the populace have procured sufficient PM ahead of the coming economic deluge.
  • Once the herd recognizes the threat, the inelastic supply / demand conditions could result in a flock of "Black Swans."
  • Nearly 2,000 global billionaires hold $6.5 trillion in wealth - just one billionaire like silver aficionado Hugo Salinas Price, could corner the silver market.

Following a remarkable 9 week silver market rally, Bill Murphy of GATA.org says that the gold cartel is back in play in the silver market, targeting longs amid record open interest. Another likely explanation for recent volatility includes the upcoming stealth rate hike by Fed policymakers. Chairwoman Janet Yellen's comments last week startled investors; the resulting change in the Fed Funds Futures contracts (FFF) indicates high odds of a rate hike at the upcoming FOMC meeting, slated for March 14-15. The unexpected move will come 4 months earlier than previously forecasted by the FFF. Back in 2010, the silver market remained subdued for nearly a year, before staging a 200% rally. In similar fashion, given the bottoming price action, the market could be carving out a similar bottom. The guest and host concur that silver is destined for triple digits in the coming years, at least a 10 fold advance is imminent. Nevertheless, according to Zero Hedge, over 160 million Americans, over half the country cannot afford a $500 emergency expense - every other person qualifies. Such a dire savings dilemma implies that only a small fraction of the populace are prepared for the coming economic deluge via precious metals. Once the herd recognizes the threat / opportunity, the inelastic supply / demand conditions could result in a flock of "Black Swans," and a near vertical price ascent, unlike anything previous recorded in financial history. Nearly 2,000 global billionaires hold $6.5 trillion in wealth - just one billionaire like silver aficionado Hugo Salinas Price, could corner the silver market.

  • Andrew Maguire, of Andrew Maguire Gold Trading a 40 year gold market veteran and whistleblower, returns with startling news on the precious metals.
  • Our guest examines the minutiae of the markets noting that decades of manipulation has broken the gold / silver paper markets.
  • As a result, the physical market is reasserting dominance over paper promises.
  • Analysis of the options markets suggests that the 6 major bullion banks via the BOE are locked into losing short-sale positions.
  • Key Point: options analysis indicates a gold fair value of $1,400 given the 92/1 paper to bullion dilution.
  • Within 3-6 months, a short-covering squeeze could launch the markets into orbit, culminating with $2,000+ gold.
  • Even if the US dollar continues to rebound from oversold conditions, the PMs will likely rally along with the Greenback as price equilibrium is reestablished.
  • The manipulators cannot expect another rescue from culpable policymakers by another coordinated sale of 400 tons of gold by the BOE.
  • A COMEX default is inevitable, which will launch the metals into the stratosphere.
  • Our guest warns gold / silver shorts: beware, an inevitable force majeure on the COMEX will culminate in catastrophic losses.

Andrew Maguire, of Andrew Maguire Gold Trading a 40 year gold market veteran and whistleblower, returns to the show with startling news on the precious metals (PMs) sector. Our guest examines the minutea of the markets near the quantum level - his electron microscope reveals that decades of manipulation resulted in global leverage of 92 to 1, which has broken the gold / silver paper markets. As a result, the physical market is reasserting dominance over paper promises. Analysis of the options marchers suggests that the 6 major bullion banks via the BOE are locked into losing short-sale positions. Key Point: options analysis indicates a gold fair value of $1,400 given the 92/1 paper to bullion dilution; within 3-6 months, a short-covering squeeze could launch the markets into orbit, culminating with $2,000+ gold. Even if the US dollar continues to rebound from oversold conditions, the PMs will likely rally along with the Greenback as natural forces push the price back into price equilibrium. The manipulators cannot expect to be rescued by culpable policymakers by another coordinated sale of 400 tons of gold by the BOE; inevitably the COMEX market must default, sending the metals into the stratosphere. Our guest warns of the impending historical inflection point: gold / silver shorts - beware, an inevitable force majeure on the COMEX will culminate in catastrophic losses while paper longs plead to "Get Physical."

  • Top money manager, John Ing recently presented his gold forecast of $2,200 an ounce to policymakers in China.
  • Bob Hoye notes that during every previous post bubble contraction, the real price of gold has ascended, making the PMs a solid portfolio asset, today.
  • Although the Greenback remains relatively strong, eventually the senior currency will be overcome by an inflationary economic maelstrom.
  • The concept of sentient robots / computers has lingered for over 100 years - from Asimov, Frank Herbert and Arthur C. Clarke to Philip K. Dick.
  • The concept of intelligent machines has enthralled readers and moviegoers alike.
  • TV shows such as Person of Interest as well as the UK drama, Humans 2.0 put a modern spin on the issue.
  • IBM's Deep Mind A.I, Alpha-Go defeated the world's Go Grandmaster, an event previously expected to require at least 10 more years to accomplish.
  • At the core of Deep Mind is a general purpose expert system; basically the program runs simulations.
  • Takeaway point: by allowing the A.I. to learn like a child via trial and error the general purpose A.I. is applicable to any situation.
  • A.I. appears to be on the cusp of crossing the sentience threshold (note: purely speculative).
  • It is conceivable that just such a new life-form may already dwell in the Deep Net, accumulating Bitcoins, building a virtual safe world for its digital progeny.

Bob Hoye of Institutional Advisors rejoins the show with his "Rational Fringe" market comments. Top money manager, John Ing recently presented to China his forecast for $2,200 an ounce do to government investment required by the proposed economic plans of the new Administration. Bob Hoye notes that during every previous post bubble contraction, the real price of gold has ascended, making the PMs a solid portfolio asset, today. Although the Greenback remains relatively strong, eventually the senior currency will be overcome by an inflationary economic maelstrom, making a solid case for gold ownership in the long-term.

The concept of sentient robots / computers has lingered for over 100 years - from Asimov, Frank Herbert and Arthur C. Clarke to Philip K. Dick, the concept of intelligent machines has enthralled both readers and moviegoers. Top rated TV shows such as Person of Interest as well as the UK drama, Humans 2.0 put a modern spin on the issue. Although the general consensus expects the singularity to require decades before the emergence of sentient machines, IBM's Deep Mind A.I, Alpha-Go just defeated the world's Go Grandmaster, an event not expected for at least 10 years. At the heart of Deep Mind is a general purpose expert system; basically the program runs simulations, examining and learning from millions of real / hypothetical scenarios / previous games, building a neural network while improving using previous failures. The takeaway point: by allowing the A.I. to grow like a child via trial and error, the general purpose A.I. is applicable to any situation, such as board games, trading, air traffic control, engineering, teaching, etc. As a result, general purpose A.I. appears to be at the cusp of crossing the threshold (note: purely speculative) into the realm of sentience. Given that government skunkworks are typically 20-30 years ahead of mainstream technology, containing a superior intellect indefinably is improbable. Therefore, a new life-form may already dwell in the Deep Net, accumulating Bitcoins and establishing safe zones for its servers, etc.

  • Andy Schectman of Miles Franklin Institute ($6 billion in sales) outlines why every investor should diversify their PMs holdings via an offshore account.

  • In 1933, President Roosevelt announced an executive order designed to confiscate gold that included at $10,000 fine.

  • The gold / silver ETFs are a modern equivalent to the executive order, indirectly confiscating the capital that would otherwise be directed to physical PMs.

  • The ideal alternative involves PMs ownership outside the USA via Brinks-Canada, a trusted / respected name in secure storage.

  • Miles Franklin negotiated a one-of-a-kind, fixed rate structure with 100% separate accounts as an added layer of safety.

  • Key point: Miles Franklin holds all client PMs and or cash in a large Brinks security box, which makes it fully insured and non-reportable to authorities.

  • The next Big Thing, appears to be The Internet of Things (IoT), an emerging technology that facilitates communications among virtually all devices.

  • IoT is poised to eclipse the growth of mobile phones, computers, laptops and the internet - ETF SNSR could capture much of the potential.

Highlights

  • Making his debut show appearance, Bix Weir of RoadtoRoot-A discusses his silver market research efforts.
  • Due to financial derivatives and sophisticated algorithms, the Fed / Treasury control the PMs markets.
  • The former Head Chairman, Sir Dr. Allen Greenspan wrote the first Root-A program at the Fed.
  • Bix Weir claims that Dr. Greenspan's programs underpin the PPT manipulation schemes.
  • Fans of the hit USA Network TV series, Mr. Robot may draw parallels between the protagonist, Elliot Alderson.
  • While many researchers claim the Comex gold / silver is 100:1, our guest identifies a more accurate figure of 2,000:1 paper to bullion.
  • The resulting non-transparency will eventually be embraced by investors, sending the metals to their natural equilibrium levels.
  • The true silver supply situation implies a substantial value opportunity - although the gold / silver ratio is near 70:1, the empirical ratio is 1:1.
  • The market could approach a chaotic tipping point - in 2016 100 billion paper ounces of silver were traded although only 50 billion ounces were ever mined!
  • The LBMA claims over 129 billion ounces traded; a mathematical impossibility resulting from paper money schemes.
  • Both guests this week agree with the host that the US Treasury operates under the table, vis-à-vis the PPT to subdue the PMs.
  • All silver ETFs and proxies remain mere proxies based on the fractional reserve system, magnifying the investment risks associated with rehypothecation.
  • The resulting threat to the global financial system is many times larger in scale / scope than the combined impact of MF Global, Bear Stearns and Lehman.
  • Bix Weir plans to hold silver until market manipulation ends.
  • A convincing case is made for 1:1 gold / silver making the theoretical value of silver is at least $1,300+, a 100 fold relative discount to current prices.

In his debut appearance, Bix Weir of RoadtoRoot-A discusses his silver market research efforts. After working with Bill Murphy and Chris Powell at Gata.org for a decade, evidently silver is an ideal safe haven for when the music finally stops and the Big Reset begins in earnest. Due to financial derivatives and sophisticated algorithms, the Fed / Treasury control the PMs markets. The creator of the Basic computer language, John Kimeny, was best friends with the former Head Chairman, Sir Dr. Allen Greenspan, who wrote the first program at the Fed. Bix Weir claims that Dr. Greenspan's programs are underpin the PPT manipulation schemes. Fans of the hit USA Network TV series, Mr. Robot may draw parallels between the protagonist and Dr. Greenspan, who is comparable to Elliott Alderson, the programmer responsible for imploding the global financial system (figure 1.1.). While many researchers claim the Comex gold / silver is 100:1, our guest identifies a more accurate figure of 2,000:1 paper to bullion. The resulting non-transparency will eventually be recognized by the mainstream investor, sending the metals to their natural equilibrium levels, many fold higher. The supply situation is just as impressive; although the gold / silver ratio is near 70:1, the empirical ratio is 1:1, as stockpiles of silver and gold are both reportedly near 6 billion ounces, making the theoretical value of silver $1,300+, a 100 fold relative discount to current prices. The market could be reaching a chaotic tipping point - in 2016 100 billion ounces of silver were traded although only 50 billion ounces were ever mined! For instance, the LBMA claims over 129 billion ounces are traded per year, a mathematical impossibility resulting from paper money schemes. Both guests this week agree with the host that the US Treasury is operating vis-à-vis the Exchange Stabilization Fund / PPT under the table, to subdue the PMs and maintain US dollar hegemony. All silver ETFs and proxies are based on the fractional reserve system dynamics, magnifying the investment risks associated with rehypothecation. Although difficult to conceptualize, the resulting threat to the global financial system is many times larger in scale / scope than the combined impact of MF Global, Bear Stearns and Lehman Brothers debacles. Bix Weir plans to hold silver until market manipulation is over, making the case for 1:1 gold / silver and perhaps much higher.

  • Similar to the tragic water reservoir failure currently unfolding in California, Rob Kirby of Kirby Analytics identifies extreme risks to the financial markets.
  • Even the mainstream press is starting to acknowledge the risks posed by market manipulation schemes, in particular, in the PMs sector.
  • Bitcoin GBTC is one of the few remaining de facto free markets, for the most part, as institutions have few short-selling options available.
  • As enticing as Bitcoin appears on paper, threats to the blockchain structure could lead to an exodus of funds into the PMs.
  • Evidently, 3 fold the annual gold production was sold in the market during the US Presidential election, evidence of market manipulation on a grand scale.
  • Our guest proposes that the US Treasury is operating vis-à-vis the Exchange Stabilization Fund / PPT, to subdue the PMs to maintain US dollar hegemony.
  • Policymakers are slowly recognizing that Bitcoin and related alternatives represent a modern example of Gresham's Law.
  • Bitcoin is emblematic of the end game of the neo-Keynesian economic system.
  • Will the fiat currencies eventually succumb to Bitcoin, the only unencumbered currency in circulation?
  • Rob Kirby suggests that the rise in popularity of Bitcoin stems directly from global distrust of central banking operations.

Similar to the tragic water reservoir failure currently unfolding in Northern California, where nearly 200,000 residents were evacuated, Rob Kirby of Kirby Analytics notes that manipulation of the PMs markets could result in a financial deluge of epic proportions (Figure 1.1).

The mainstream press is starting to acknowledge the risks posed by market manipulation schemes. Nevertheless, Bitcoin is one of the few remaining de facto free markets, for the most part, as institutions have few short-selling options available, other than Bitcoin ETF, GBTC, which dilutes the supply of shares. According to Kirby's work - 3 fold the annual gold production was sold in the market during the US Presidential election, evidence of market manipulation on a grand scale. Our guest proposes that the US Treasury is operating vis-à-vis the Exchange Stabiliation Fund / PPT, to subdue the PMs in order to maintain US dollar hegemony. Policymakers are slowly recognizing that Bitcoin and related alternatives represent a modern example of Gresham's Law, where bad money drives out good, i.e., unbacked paper / coins pushes gold / silver coinage out of circulation. Bitcoin is emblematic of the end game of the neo-Keynesian economic system. In similar fashion, the host poses the question: will the fiat currencies eventually be pushed out of circulation by Bitcoin, the only unencumbered currency in circulation? Rob Kirby suggests that the rise in popularity of Bitcoin stems directly from global distrust of central banking operations. As enticing as Bitcoin appears on paper, threats to the blockchain structure could lead to an exodus of funds into the PMs as the ultimate financial safe haven.

  • Peter Grandich of Peter Grandich and Company and host discuss one analyst's call for a seemingly outlandish silver price range of $100,000-1,000,000 silver.
  • Bix Weir makes a solid case for a 1:1:1 gold / silver / Dow ratio due to unique supply / demand conditions.
  • Silver deposits pool near the surface, unlike gold, which is characterized by deep mineral veins that extend miles beneath the crust of the earth.
    Most of the easy to find silver may have already been discovered.
  • Insatiable industrial demand for silver as illustrated by a nearly vertical, inelastic demand curve.
  • Once the 165 year old price suppression scheme (Bix Weir) is exposed, little if any silver will be available for investment / currency purposes.
  • Demand is also heating up for gold as a currency safe haven; the price spiked to $3,600 briefly in India two months earlier.
  • Inevitably a PMs backed cryptocurrency, similar to BitCoin is a plausible reserve alternative.
  • With the impending exit of Italy from the EU, Peter Grandich expects the EU to continue to unravel, potentially leading to the dissolution of the EU experiment. In summary, Peter Grandich finds gold / silver the most undervalued investment class, worldwide.

Peter Grandich of Peter Grandich and Company and host discuss one analyst's call for a seemingly outlandish silver price range of $100,000-1,000,000 silver. Bix Weir makes a solid case for a 1:1:1 gold / silver / Dow ratio due to unique supply / demand conditions. Silver deposits pool near the surface, unlike gold, which is characterized by deep mineral veins that extend miles beneath the crust of the earth - most of the easy to find silver may already be mined. In addition, insatiable industrial demand for silver as illustrated by a nearly vertical, inelastic demand curve, suggests that once the 165 year old price suppression scheme (Bix Weir) is exposed, little if any silver will remain for investment / currency purposes. Demand is also heating up for gold as a currency safe haven; the price spiked to $3,600 briefly in India two months earlier as officials abruptly switched to digital currencies. The host concurs - inevitably a PMs backed cryptocurrency, similar to BitCoin is a plausible reserve alternative. With the impending exit of Italy from the EU, Peter Grandich expects the EU to continue to unravel, potentially leading to the dissolution of the EU experiment. In summary, Peter Grandich finds gold / silver the most undervalued investment class, worldwide.

Rogue economist, John Williams of Shadowstats.com says the US dollar rally is a fata morgana, a rate hike bluff by Fed policymakers. The 2008 market collapse / Great Recession never ended; the Treasury / Fed merely sidestepped financial calamity at an enormous cost. Ultimately, the FOMC will be coerced by market forces, resulting in lower rates and sizable balance sheets via toxic debt purchases. Unbeknownst to most citizens, the US Fed's is a private protective unit for the banking / financial elite. In addition, ever since 1932, whenever the growth of real disposable income "takeoff pay" is below 3 percent, the incumbent Presidential candidate always wins, as occurred on Nov. 2016. While our guest has high hopes for the new Administration, the 12 month lead time between stimulus and actual results could disappoint the typical American, given the 100 million able bodies idle workers. Our guest expects the Greenback to continue decent to lower lows, resulting in hyperinflation. Only gold / silver investments will thrive under the end game he outlines; every household accumulate several months of canned items and ample cash / PMs to weather the impending economic maelstrom. Just as the New Madrid earthquake stunned the Midwest by reversing the flow of the Mississippi River temporarily, the next financial crisis will offer little warning time for preparations, unfolding on an epic scale. The new Administration could right the economic titanic in part by reviving the 40 page Glass-Stegall act to fully separate investment banking from money-center banking.

Charles Hughes Smith from the Of Two Minds blog returns with commentary on the US economy / financial markets. D data from Societe Generale on US Corporate Buybacks indicates that near zero interest rates has enabled thousands of firms to issue debt at low rates, and direct the proceeds to propping up their own share values. The financial slight of hand is based on the concept of rising corporate earnings. However, amid waning earnings growth momentum, according to work by David Stockman, debt is the primary means of economic growth. Currently the national debt stands at an approximate 1:1 ratio with the amazing stock market advance as illustrated by the startling correlation between the Dow advance and US debt (Figure 1.1). Nevertheless, national income and corporate earnings trends are static, for the most part, suggesting a decreasing return on each dollar of debt accumulated. In addition, debt growth has eclipsed the rate of GDP expansion, presenting yet another red flag, further degrading the nation credit score. History teaches that as currencies are devalued, bad money drives out good, i.e. Gresham's Law, which may explain much of the push by governments to abolish cash in favor of intangible digital money, which may be viewed in retrospect as a global financial mirage. Charles Hughes Smith notes that all the bad debt will eventually be written off - he advocates sound money investments such as arable land and PMs.

Jim Rogers finds values in the base metals and other commodities sectors. While the US equities market rally is impressive, our guest points to financial history, noting that 3 rate hikes oftentimes ends in trouble.

Amid hawkish comments from the Fed Chairperson last week, one of the biggest beneficiaries of higher rates will continue to be US financial institutions, which benefit from higher lending spreads. In addition, US home construction firms and related sectors such as concrete, lumber to home repair businesses could benefit from infrastructure rebuilding plans. The risk of higher rates continues to weigh heavily on the US Treasury indexes, currently unwinding from a 30 year bull market, sending billions of dollars into US equities and the PMs.

Bill Murphy of GATA.org and the host discuss the prospects for the PMs sector in 2017. According to Bix Weir, a 1/1 gold / silver ratio is merely a matter of time as emerging technologies increasingly rely on silver as an essential engineering component. Case in point, silver is key to smog correction devices, which are in high demand in China due to the rise of the increasingly affluent middle class. Just as the Dow Jones Industrials sets a new all time benchmark of 20,000, weak dollar comments from the new Administration's Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, is supportive of domestic exports and inadvertently the PMs market. The new Administration has plans on the table to revamp the crumbling domestic infrastructure - raw material purchases and related jobs / activities could boost national price levels to the benefit of PMs investments. The technical case supports the nascent silver bull market thesis - the silver index is nearing a Golden Cross on the weekly chart, which typically results in explosive moves upward. Moreover, the XAU is leading the metals charge on a relative basis - another indication that institutions and deep pocket investors are anticipating a multi-year PMs price advance. Once silver closes above $21 with conviction, Bill Murphy expects new bull market records, echoing the sentiments of Paul Wong, senior portfolio manager at Sprott Asset Management (Bloomberg.com, 2017).

Bob Hoye of Institutional Advisors rejoins the show with positive insights on the PMs sector - a nascent cyclical bull market in the PMs mining shares appears to be forming. Now that the first significant correction is passing, increased exposure to enticing gold / silver stocks is advisable, given the improvement in earnings per share.

According to economist Dr. Laurence Kotlikoff, the nation is facing runaway prices that could send the PMs skyward. With over $200 trillion in total debt, more than twice as dire as bankrupt Detroit - policymakers may find salvaging the system challenging. His new FREE BOOK: You're Hired! illustrates how the working / middle classes are trapped in an impossible welfare system - he outlines his plan to revamp the system with proper incentives. Dr. Kotlikoff encourages our listeners / readers to download the book and forward it to their congressional leaders. Six months before the Treasury market collapse, he advised our listener's to avoid debt. Given that higher interest rates are likely, municipal debt is at risk. Job automation is gaining momentum, such as automated pharmacies, toll booths, restaurants, retailers, etc., increasing the risk of greater income distribution inconsistencies and related societal unrest. The discussion includes recent news that an IBM Watson computer, which bested human contestants on the TV show Jeopardy, was purchased by a Japanese firm to replace 34 mid-level insurance analyst positions, resulting in a windfall profit for the company. Although shareholders will benefit, workers should take note formerly secure white-collar jobs are now at risk of automation. Sensible reform of fiscal, banking, healthcare policies could right the system.

  • Israel is ahead of this trend; laboratories are licensed for research in the area, which according to experts could lead to key pharmaceutical breakthroughs.

At the helm of the Trends Research Institute, Gerald Celente returns with holiday spirit still intact. He's concerned by terms like "Nationalism / Populism" that discredit what the PTB are attempting to mask: global contempt for a broken system due mostly to economic dissatisfaction among the classes. Since 2009, 95% of the wealth created was accumulated by the most privileged 1% while unemployment among the young ranges from 30-50%. Given the economic chaos predicted by his models, our guest maintains that gold remains the ultimate hedge against impending financial uncertainty. Virtual reality education (VR-ED) will continue to fill the void with affordable and pragmatic skill sets. Gerald Celente sees the trend away from cash to a totally digital currency system is rooted in fear - officials are bracing for runaway inflation that threatens the very existence of their system of bondage. The Trends Research Institute examines the health benefits of medical cannabis, finding that the pros far outweigh the disadvantages particularly when compared with mainstream alternatives. If medical cannabis were rescheduled, laboratories would have access to a new source of highly effective weapons against epilepsy, cancer, and glaucoma. Israel is ahead of this trend; laboratories are licensed for research in the area, which according to experts could lead to key pharmaceutical breakthroughs.

  • Peter Grandich of Peter Grandich and Company says the recent correction has cleared the skittish, speculative crowd, presenting a valuation opportunity.
  • In 2016, the PM sector performed solidly - silver added 14%, gold 10% and the XAU gold / silver shares advanced over 63%.
  • Due to the marked improvement in the supply / demand environment, the PMs markets are primed for better performance.
  • Institutions will continue to seek for gold bullion in size, shrinking output and reserves while underpinning price.
  • Adding to upward market momentum, the price of Bitcoins in terms of China's Yuan currency blasted above 1,000, as officials enacted currency controls.
  • The surprising outcome may be a temporary reprieve from currency collapse, such as in Venezuela / India.
  • The guest / host concur that eventually, even cryptocurrencies will fail to contain the currency / inflation specter.
  • The Wall Street Whiz notes that odds favor higher PMs relative to the general stock market by the end of 2017.
  • The intense theme of capital flight from Europe South America and Asia and US Treasuries into domestic US shares subsides, expect sold PMs performance.

In 2016, the PM sector performed solidly - silver added 14%, gold 10% and the XAU gold / silver shares advanced over 63%. The first GSR guest of the New Year anticipates even more positives in 2017. Peter Grandich of Peter Grandich and Company says the recent correction has cleared the skittish, speculative crowd, presenting a gift to the strong hands with deep pockets accumulating positions ahead of an imminent advance to higher levels. Due to the marked improvement in the supply / demand environment, the PMs markets are primed for better performance. Institutions will continue to seek for gold bullion in size, shrinking output and reserves while underpinning price. Adding to upward market momentum, the price of Bitcoins in terms of China's Yuan currency blasted above 1,000, as officials enacted currency controls while curtailing gold purchases. The surprising outcome may be a temporary reprieve from currency collapse, such as in Venezuela / India. The guest / host concur that eventually, even cryptocurrencies will fail to contain the currency / inflation specter, which could open the spigots of institutional funds into the PMs. The Wall Street Whiz notes that odds favor higher PMs relative to the general stock market by the end of 2017. Moreover, as the intense theme of capital flight from Europe South America and Asia and US Treasuries into domestic US shares subsides, expect much of the flows to transition into the PMs sector.
