Rob Kirby & Chris Waltzek - December 1, 2016.

*

Highlights

  • Rob Kirby of Kirby Analytics notes that the smart money, deep pockets and institutional investors are diversifying away the dollar exposure in favor of PMs.
  • Our guest proposes that an enormous tonnage of gold was dropped on the market following the US election - nearly the entire US reserves at Fort Knox.
  • The move is an "act of desperation by policymakers" to contain gold and give the false illusion of weakness.
  • The "Deep State" globalists have forced India's Modi to drop the 1,000 / 500 Rupee notes to quash physical gold sales during peak seasonal demand.
  • Officials in India admit that the total digital currency system will involve 100% taxation of every transaction.
  • Due to gold leasing schemes, central banks are creating "Phantom Gold" that exists only on paper concealing a Mount Everest sized stack of IOUs.
  • When combined with the global fiat / fractional reserve system, 7 billion global inhabitants may be facing the perfect "algorithm of economic disaster."
  • A favorite economic indicator of Warren Buffet, Freight Traffic remains anemic, suggesting that the robust GDP figure may be an illusion.
  • Rob Kirby corroborates Dr. Stephen Leeb's speculation that the PBoC may actually own 10 times as much gold reserves as officially reported.
  • Eventually the Yuan will eclipse the currencies of all competing BRICS and NATO nations as the de facto reserve currency.
  • Investors are advised to prepare for a tidal wave of Greenbacks resulting in Venuzeulan-like prices.
  • US officials, via the new Administration have a duty / obligation and opportunity to secure national sovereignty by procuring at least 20,000 metric tons of gold.

Rob Kirby of Kirby Analytics notes that the smart money, deep pockets and institutional investors are diversifying away from dollar exposure in favor of the PMs. Our guest proposes that an enormous tonnage of gold was dropped on the market following the US election - equivalent to nearly the entire US reserves at Fort Knox. The move was an "act of desperation by policymakers" to contain gold and give the false illusion of weakness. Rob Kirby insists that the "Deep State" globalists have forced India's Modi to drop the 1,000 / 500 Rupee notes to quash physical gold sales during peak seasonal demand, as corroborated by a recent article by Stewart Dougherty. Moreover, officials in India admit that the total digital currency system will involve 100% taxation of every transaction. Paul Erdos regularly said, "A problem worthy of attack, proves it's worth by fighting back," clearly the lame-stream media has a worthy problem on their hands, calling alternative news sources "A Sophisticated Russian Propaganda Tool." Due to gold leasing schemes, central banks are creating "Phantom Gold" that exists only on paper, theoretically - in actuality the slight of hand conceals a Mount Everest sized stack of IOUs. When combined with the global fiat / fractional reserve system, 7 billion global inhabitants may be facing the perfect "algorithm of economic disaster," formerly known as a Ponzi Scheme. In addition, a favorite economic indicator of Warren Buffet, Freight Traffic remains anemic, suggesting that the robust GDP figure may be a figment of officials collective imaginations; the government has little sway over the numbers (Figure 1.1). Rob Kirby corroborates Dr. Stephen Leeb's speculation that the PBoC may actually own 10 times as much gold reserves as officially reported, as much as 30,000 metric tons, over $1 trillion, more than the combined global stockpiles. If so, eventually the Yuan will eclipse the currencies of all competing BRICS and NATO nations as the de facto reserve currency. Investors are advised to prepare for a tidal wave of Greenbacks returning to domestic shores, resulting in Venuzeulan-like prices. KEY TAKEAWAY POINT: US officials, via the new Administration have a duty / obligation and opportunity to secure national sovereignty by procuring at least 20,000 metric tons of gold, with scant ceremony.

John Embry & Chris Waltzek - November 30, 2016.

Highlights

  • John Embry, Senior Strategist of Sprott Asset Management comments on the purported 8,000 tons of paper gold dropped on the market.
  • 8,000 metric tons (2204 lbs.), 17.6 million lbs., 282 million ounces, were unleashed on the PMs sector, equivalent to a Tsunami of selling pressure.
  • The institutions and big players are clearing their short positions in anticipation of an explosive move to the upside in gold / silver.
  • New economic policies to revamp the domestic infrastructure could balloon the already bloated US national debt / deficits resulting in runaway prices.
  • India may be the trial-run / a petri dish for a global cashless society; the new Treasury secretary is a former Wall Street insider.
  • Global citizens are advised to insist policymakers embrace a dual cash / digital system, as 100% transparency also eliminates freedom.
  • Given the 46 years since the gold window was shut, salvaging the domestic / global economy may be beyond the means of policymakers.
John Embry, Senior Strategist of Sprott Asset Management comments on the purported 8,000 tons of paper gold dropped on the market following the Presidential election. According to Rob Kirby, 8,000 metric tons (2204 lbs.), 17.6 million lbs., 282 million ounces, were unleashed on the PMs sector, equivalent to a Tsunami of selling pressure. John embry proposes that the institutions and big players are clearing their short positions in anticipation of an explosive move to the upside by gold / silver. Given the recent appointment of a former GS insider, Mnuchin as the new US Treasury Secretary new economic policies to revamp the domestic infrastructure could balloon the already bloated US national debt / deficits resulting in runaway prices. India may be the trial-run for a global cashless society, a petri dish to accomplish nefarious schemes under the guise of eliminating fraud - their new Treasury secretary is a former Wall Street insider. Citizens are advised to push for a dual cash / digital system, as 100% transparency also eliminates freedom. Nevertheless, given the 46 years since the gold window was shut, salvaging the domestic / global economy may be beyond the means of policymakers.

Highlights

  • Peter Schiff, Chairman of SchiffGold.com discusses the Fed's reaction to the threat of higher inflation.
  • With a quarter point rate hike expected in Dec and possibly 2 more in 2017, policymakers are concerned that prices are moving up to quickly.
  • Inflation is typically a positive for the PMs markets, e.g., the 1970's inflation / PMs rally.
  • Real interest rates will remain negative, constraining the US dollar and encouraging gold / silver purchases.
  • Bond bears are in control - the sector could crater much further, requiring sizable QE activity by the Fed to contain the toxic debt.
  • Dollar bulls may find themselves trapped, as officials are forced to ramp up QE and lower interest rates.
  • If bonds continue to decline, the cost of financing stock buyback related debt will soar, reducing demand for US shares and lowering equities prices.
  • The liberated funds will fuel the uptrend in the $CRB commodities index despite the dollar breakout, suggesting that PMs could soon find a price floor.
  • Additional blowback from higher rates includes the potential for a 20%+ housing price decline, as homedebtors struggle to make payments.
  • Until the forward looking housing starts index declines abruptly, the uptrend will remain intact.
  • The election shock reaction in the PMs shares may be overdone presenting opportunities in the Euro Pacific Gold fund, EPGFX.

The liberated funds will fuel the uptrend in the $CRB commodities index despite the dollar breakout, suggesting that PMs could soon find a price floor. Additional blowback from higher rates includes the potential for a 20%+ housing price decline, as homedebtors struggle to make payments and new buyers walk away from overpriced debt shacks. Nevertheless, until the forward looking housing starts index declines abruptly, the uptrend will remain intact. The election shock reaction in the PMs shares may be overdone presenting opportunities in a professionally managed investment opportunity ranked highly by Morningstar, the Euro Pacific Gold fund, EPGFX.

Highlights

  • Respected rogue economist, John Williams of Shadowstats.com says the Great Recession of 2008-2009 is still underway, contrary to the mainline media.
  • Although the official national unemployment rate is steady at under 5%, the true unemployment rate is at least 4 times as high at 23%.
  • The slight of hand requires an epic cover-up on a grand scale.
  • John Williams outlines how the PTB accomplished the feat and the economic implications.
  • Discouraged workers are no longer counted due to changes in the unemployment calculations making the economy in worse shape than reported.
  • When the true inflation rate is used to deflate GDP numbers, the US has been in an unofficial recession for 16 consecutive years.
  • Free trade has positive theoretical economic benefits, but deleterious ramifications for many high quality domestic jobs.
  • Ultimately the economic fallout will impact the Greenback, which will collapse sending the yellow metal to at least $10,000 and perhaps many fold higher.
  • Case in point, in Venezuela recent reports show that a silver coin suddenly buys $250 worth of groceries.

Respected rogue economist, John Williams of Shadowstats.com says the Great Recession of 2008-2009 is still underway, contrary to the disinformation spread by the mainline media. Although the official national unemployment rate is steady at under 5%, cut in half since the 10% peak recorded in 2009, our guest presents convincing empirical evidence that the true unemployment rate is at least 4 times as high at 23%. The slight of hand requires an epic cover-up on a grand scale - John Williams outlines how the PTB accomplished the feat and the economic implications. Unfortunately, discouraged workers eventually are no longer counted, due to changes in the unemployment calculations back in 1994 to facilitate NAFTA requirements, making the economy in worse shape than reported. In addition, when the true inflation rate is used to deflate GDP numbers, the US has been in an unofficial recession for 16 consecutive years. Free trade has positive theoretical economic benefits, but deleterious ramifications for many high quality domestic jobs. Ultimately the economic fallout will impact the Greenback, which will collapse sending the yellow metal to at least $10,000 and perhaps many fold higher, if runaway inflation takes hold, such as in Venezuela, where recent reports show that a silver coin suddenly buys $250 worth of groceries.

Highlights

  • Bill Murphy of GATA.org rejoins the show with comments on the global currency issues.
  • The Indian rupee is the next domino to drop as 86% of its paper money was withdrawn from circulation resulting in widespread economic chaos.
  • Minister Narendra Modi enforced an anti-graft measure to ban high-value currency in Asia's third-largest economy.
  • 90% of daily transactions involve paper currency, compared to merely 30% in the US.
  • The once vibrant economy has ground to a halt, as truck drivers abandon vehicles en route, and ATMs are reportedly empty amid a currency shortage.
  • The long-term implications for the gold / silver market may be profound, vindicating the national passion for sound money.
  • Small denominated silver coins could fill the currency vacuum, as the typical citizen could be less inclined to trust paper currency for years to come.
  • China's retail investors will soon have unfettered access to North American gold / silver mining shares.
  • Our guest outlines how their knowledge about market manipulation and artificially sniffled price could put a price floor under the sector.
  • Bill Murphy insists that the PMs sector reaction following the election outcome was classic PSYOP disinformation and a market-manipulation scandal.
  • The PMs market could represent one of the best buying opportunities in years. Open interest in the PMs contracts has collapsed, presenting an intriguing contrarian opportunity.
Bill Murphy of GATA.org rejoins the show with comments on the global currency issues. On the heels of the Venezuelan currency collapse, the Indian rupee is the next domino to drop as 86% of its paper money was withdrawn from circulation resulting in widespread economic chaos. Minister Narendra Modi enforced an anti-graft measure to ban high-value currency in Asia's third-largest economy, where 90% of daily transactions involve paper currency, compared to merely 30% in the US. The net impact: the vibrant economy has ground to a halt, as truck drivers abandon vehicles en route, and ATMs are reportedly empty amid a currency shortage. The long-term implications for the gold / silver market may be profound, vindicating the national passion for sound money. Small denominated silver coins could fill the currency vacuum, as the typical citizen could be less inclined to trust paper currency for years to come. In addition, China's retail investors will soon have unfettered access to North American gold / silver mining shares - our guest outlines how their knowledge about market manipulation and artificially sniffled price could lead to increased demand, putting a price floor under the sector. Bill Murphy insists that the PMs sector reaction following the election outcome was classic PSYOP disinformation and a market-manipulation scandal of the highest order. As a result, the PMs market could represent one of the best buying opportunities in years. Moreover, open interest in the PMs contracts has collapsed, presenting an intriguing contrarian opportunity.

Highlights

  • Karl Denninger, publisher of The Market Ticker, makes his show debut with dire financial warnings for the listening audience.
  • Our guest cautioned readers of the impending 2008 crisis a year in advance; today US equities are more overvalued then at anytime since the year 2000.
  • Given the impending rate hike at the upcoming Dec. FOMC meeting, the increased costs associated with borrowing could burst the bond market bubble. Cost-push inflation could threaten the highly leveraged global economy, where virtually every financial instrument, even reserve currencies are exposed.
  • Three decades of complacency stemming from low bond yields could overturn the entire global financial arena.

Karl Denninger, publisher of The Market Ticker, makes his show debut with dire financial warnings for the listening audience. Our guest cautioned readers of the impending 2008 crisis a year in advance; today US equities are more overvalued then at anytime since the year 2000 bubble, due to zero interest funding. Nevertheless, given the impending rate hike at the upcoming Dec. FOMC meeting, the increased costs associated with borrowing could burst the 30 year bond market bubble. In addition, cost-push inflation could threaten the highly leveraged global economy, where virtually every financial instrument, even reserve currencies are exposed to price increases. Three decades of complacency stemming from low bond yields could overturn the entire global financial arena.

Dr. Stephen Leeb, best selling author and head of The Complete Investor returns to the show. According to Mexican Billionaire, Hugo Salinas Price, a global deflationary trend could spark a new round of QE by central bankers, worldwide, initiating the next gold rush. The remarkable 25% rally in base metals includes copper, zinc, aluminum, iron ore, etc, and has not yet capture the attention of the mainline punditry. China is emerging as the epicenter of an economic nuclear reaction - the miraculous growth represents an essential opportunity for non-BRICS nations to emulate their success. China leads the world in cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin / Litecoin and Goldseek.com Radio's new SilverBit (a silver backed virtual coin). Each SilverBit coin / token represents 1/10th of a silver coin - there are only 21,000 SilverBits, 1,000 times less than BitCoin, increasing hypothetical value. The SilverBit Mint can only increase supply following global increases in silver supply. Subscribers to the AlphaStock Newsletter are eligible for a base number of coins and future bonus coins which remain active as long as the subscriber is active - each coin is embedded with a activation key. The net impact of cryptocurrencies will include lessened reliance on traditional money and greater affinity for gold and silver.

Jeffrey Nichols, Senior economist of Rosland Capital returns with positive comments on safe haven investments following the US Presidential election results. Donald Trump stunned the establishment / elite by securing his position as the 45th President of the United States, winning the electoral vote. Populist / protectionist movements are gaining momentum, i.e., Grexit, Brexit and the US election. The resulting uncertainty is likely to boost demand for financial security, via gold / silver. According to one media report, hyperinflation is ravaging Venezuela, where a carton of eggs can cost $150 due to the plunging Bolivar - our guest insists that the PMs are the perfect panacea to shield Goldseek.com Radio listeners from such currency exposure. Demand for gold from India and China will persist in the coming years, lowering supply substantially as the metal tends to be accumulated in Asia, i.e., in China restrictions forbid the export of most gold bullion. With official unemployment at 4.9% nationally, an 8-year cycle low some investors are anticipating a trend reversal and another recession, given the near 100 million working-aged Americans searching for work or who have simply given up the search. Therefore, after the quarter point rate hike at the upcoming Dec. FOMC meeting, rates will likely stall and then decline as policymakers scramble to contain the economic fallout. The discussion includes Jim Rickards' gold forecast revision from $10,000 to $50,000 an ounce, based on the M2 money supply figure. Our guest suggests that every investor hold 5-10% of their portfolio in gold.

Highlights

  • Economist and best-selling author Harry S. Dent Jr., outlines his new FREE book, Sale of A Lifetime, that requires only shipping costs.
  • Our guest questions the soundness of the global economy, citing Brexit, the DB scandal, etc.
  • Unlike the 2008 credit crisis / Great Recession, due to unfavorable demographics, and an aging population the developed world will suffer.
  • Key investment nations include India and South East Asia, could emerge as the de facto economic powerhouses.
  • India spends 60% of per capital income on commodities, 40% in China and only 6% in the US.
  • Real estate and the stock / bond indexes could depreciate substantially, requiring asset protection to protect portfolio value.
  • Financial bubbles do not correct, they burst - losses from 50%-90%+ are typical.
  • The most affluent family in China has been selling considerable domestic real estate in anticipation of bargain hunting after the "housing bubble" bursts.
  • A once-in-a-lifetime global catastrophe similar to the Great Depression is possible, triggering a great deflation.
  • The housing sector may be in a bubble - Harry S. Dent Jr. suggests that current home values could plunge back to year 2000 levels.
  • The Dow Jones might decline by approximately 75%, from 18,000 to 3,800.
Economist and best-selling author Harry S. Dent Jr., outlines his new book, Sale of A Lifetime a FREE BOOK, requiring only shipping costs, which questions the soundness of the global economy, citing Brexit, the DB scandal, etc. Unlike the 2008 credit crisis / Great Recession, due to unfavorable demographics, and an aging population the developed world will suffer while nations like India and South East Asia could emerge as de facto economic powerhouses. For instance, India spends 60% of per capital income on commodities, 40% in China and only 6% in the US. Real estate and the stock / bond indexes could depreciate substantially, requiring asset protection to protect portfolio value. Financial bubbles do not correct, they burst - losses from 50%-90%+ are typical. The most affluent family in China has been selling considerable domestic real estate in anticipation of bargain hunting after the "housing bubble" bursts. Our guest expects a once-in-a-lifetime global catastrophe, similar to the Great Depression as hundreds of trillions of dollars in debt evaporate, triggering a great deflation. The housing sector may be in a bubble - Harry S. Dent Jr. suggests that current home values could plunge back to year 2000 levels. The Dow Jones might decline by approximately 75%, from 18,000 to 3,800.

 

Axel Merk & Chris Waltzek - November 2, 2016.

Highlights

  • Axel Merk, head of Merk Investments returns to the show.
  • The currency expert notes that the 2 year dollar rally may be little more than a short squeeze.
  • The greenback is more than 2 standard deviations above the moving average a sign of "overbought" conditions, indicating the potential to return to the mean.
  • Competing currencies appear to be nearing a bottom, given the negative interest rate scenario.
  • The Fed Funds futures contract implies that the domestic rate hike cycle is ending and the US dollar could slide, re-testing the bear market lows.
  • Higher domestic rates do not always coincide with a strong US dollar - it is the anticipation of an initial rate hike or change in regime that commands price.
  • There is little precedent to assume that the greenback will rally much further.
  • Inflation is increasing at a faster pace, holding the real rate of interest in negative territory.
  • The Fed is pushing on a string - the token rate hike is insufficient to offset the increased cost of living expense.
  • The two top arguments for gold ownership: diversification, as gold is a near perfect asset for offsetting US equities risk; few alternatives are as appealing.
  • The discussion concludes with an overview of the significance / potential of cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin.
  • Cryptocurrency initial public offerings IPOs / ICOs are available at this site.
  • Only 21 million Bitcoins can ever exist via the limit embedded in the public blockchain code, theoretically.
  • Bitcoins can never be diluted by excessive CB currency printing schemes. In addition, Bitcoin wallets are regularly lost due to hard drive crashes, etc.
  • Once the last coin is mined, supply will always decline over time, leading to upward price drift, assuming minimal government intervention / regulation.
  • Even the hypothetical Bitcoin creator, Satoshi Nakamoto (owns $400 million / 500,000 Bitcoins) finds the future of Bitcoins uncertain.
  • Litecoins may represent an affordable silver-like alternative to the gold-like Bitcoin.

Axel Merk, head of Merk Investments returns to the show. The currency expert notes that the 2 year dollar rally may be little more than a short squeeze - the greenback is more than 2 standard deviations above the moving average a sign of "overbought" conditions, indicating the potential to return to the mean. In addition, many competing currencies appear to be nearing a bottom, given the negative interest rate scenario. Should Fed policymakers end the rate hike cycle at .75 basis points at the Dec. 2016 FOMC meeting, as implied by the Fed Funds futures contract, the US dollar could slide, re-testing the bear market lows. Higher domestic rates do not always coincide with a strong US dollar - it is the anticipation of an initial rate hike or change in regime that commands price. Given that the rate hike cycle is in full swing, there is limited precedent to assume that the greenback will rally much further. In addition, even though Fed officials will likely raise the benchmark overnight lending rate another quarter point, our guest reveals that inflation is increasing at a faster pace, resulting in a negative real interest rate. Put simply, the Fed is pushing on a string - the token rate hike is insufficient to offset the increased cost of living expense. The two top arguments to own gold: diversification, as gold is a near perfect asset for offsetting US equities risk; secondly, few alternatives are as appealing as gold with virtually zero interest rates and a long-term return of 8%. The discussion concludes with an overview of the significance / potential of cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin. Cryptocurrency initial public offerings IPOs / ICOs are available at this site. Given that only 21 million Bitcoins can ever exist via the limit embedded in the public blockchain code, theoretically, Bitcoins can never be diluted by excessive CB currency printing schemes. In addition, Bitcoin wallets are regularly lost due to hard drive crashes, accidents, lost passwords, etc.., implying that supply will always decline over time, leading to upward price drift, assuming minimal government intervention / regulation. Conversely, gold has a multi-millenia track record of success. Even the hypothetical Bitcoin creator, Satoshi Nakamoto (Owns 500,000 Bitcoins, nearly half a billion dollars) purportedly said that in the future, Bitcoins will either be much higher in price or zero, suggesting an uncertain future. Litecoins may represent an affordable silver-like alternative to the gold-like Bitcoin.

Highlights

  • Bill Murphy of GATA.org rejoins the show while attending the 2016 new Orleans Investment Conference
  • The 2016 PMs rally is one of the most explosive in history; once the election passes, PMs equities will blast higher amid a new golden era.
  • The FOMC rate hike cycle will end in Dec. 2016, perhaps even reversing course in 2017-2018 to stave off the threat of another credit crisis circa 2008.
  • Our guest underscores the importance for every investor to prepare for Talebian, "Black Swan" events, similar to the Brexit.
  • A similar event could open the flood gates into gold and silver investments.
  • Bill Murphy proposes that the advance will stun even the most ardent gold bull.
  • Case in point, during the explosive gold rally of 2010, silver broke out of the consolidation, culminating in a 3 fold increase from $16 to $49.
  • Key takeaway point - the PMs appear to be extremely undervalued, implying an explosive move of "epic proportions" on the horizon.
Bill Murphy of GATA.org rejoins the show while attending the 2016 new Orleans Investment Conference, which includes Peter Schiff, Doug Casey and Dennis Gartman. Our guest reviews the 2016 PMs rally, one of the most explosive in history, ahead of the contentious Nov. 8th election, noting that once the event passes, the PMs equities will blast higher amid a new golden era. The FOMC rate hike cycle will end in Dec. 2016, perhaps even reversing course in 2017-2018 to stave off the threat of another credit crisis circa 2008. Following the last rate hike of 2016, the PMs sector advanced sharply. Our guest underscores the importance for every investor to prepare for Talebian, "Black Swan" events, similar to the Brexit, that caught so many financial institutions unprepared. A similar scenario could open the flood gates into gold and silver investments. Unlike the remarkable 12 year rally in gold from 2000-2011, Bill Murphy proposes that the next advance will stun even the most ardent gold bull, catching many investors off-guard as sudden leaps in price become the new norm. Case in point, during the explosive gold rally of 2010, where price regularly closed at record highs on a weekly basis, silver held firm for months, meandering in a boring consolidation. Then abruptly, silver broke free from range-bound conditions, beginning an unprecedented 9 month rally, culminating in a 3 fold increase from $16 to $49, stunning the financial world. Key takeaway point - the PMs appear to be extremely undervalued, implying an explosive move of "epic proportions" on the horizon.

Summary

  • Byron King of Jim Rickards Gold Speculator and Agora Financial predicted the explosive PMs rally of 2016 months in advance. The recent selloff could soon reach capitulation levels, presenting unique value opportunities in gold and silver investments.
  • Byron King outlines one of his favorite PMs exploration firms, Brazil Resources, calling it, "The most underpriced company in the Gold Speculator's portfolio."
  • Our guest visits the properties, meets the geologists and top executives like CEO Amir Adnani who runs Brazil Resources as well as Uranium Resources.
  • Brazil Resources earned a strategic advantage by transforming properties with potential into highly sought after projects by leading mining companies. Once Fed policymakers raise rates in Dec. expect the economic reverberations to be intense, including sharp declines in US equities indexes.
  • Just as gold / silver money backing as instrumental to the nascent economic growth and stability; sound money will once again be in vogue.
  • The work of global central bankers will be forced to return to a gold backed currency.
  • For instance a digital / cryptocurrency founded on bullion. A currency similar to Bitcoin or Komodo could emerge as de facto money (Komodo ICO available today).The trend in the PMs sector is likely to persist for the next few years.

David Morgan a.k.a. "The Silver Investor" from the Morgan Report gives a detailed overview of current silver market conditions. The time may be approaching to start adding to core silver positions, the market correction may soon pass. Both the guest and host agree: 90% silver US coins, pre-'65 make the ideal investment, (Buy here) for every investor and the ideal bartering tool during economic dislocations. The Silver Investor's #1 Rule of silver investing, when all else fails there's silver, for instance, in the aftermath of a hurricane, ATM outages, A Great Recession / Depression, banking holidays, etc. The recent addition of the Yuan to the IMF reserve SDR could be a game changer for currency hegemony and a big plus for precious metals investors. Eventually, David morgan expects the PTB to return the global currency system to de facto money - gold and silver. Nevertheless, a widely diversified portfolio that includes a solid core of precious metals investors is advisable.

Highlights

  • The nascent precious metals bull market remains intact, according to Peter Grandich of Peter Grandich and Company.
  • Although policymakers could hike rates to 0.75-1.00%, the affect will be minimal.
  • The big economic wild card remains loose monetary policy, which includes negative interest rates, forcing investors to chase stock / bond market yield.
  • Years of positive equities returns camouflages the risks to typical investors. 5 US money center banks account for nearly $250 trillion in derivatives.
  • The enormous leverage could expose the US financial sector to another 2008-2009 like credit fiasco.
  • The recent selloff appears to be the result of forced paper liquidation, which could ignite a launch to $1,400 gold before year-end.
  • Unfortunately, a key impetus sending the sector higher could be societal fallout following the November elections in 2017.
The nascent precious metals bull market remains intact, according to Peter Grandich of Peter Grandich and Company. Although policymakers could hike rates to 0.75-1.00%, the affect will be minimal. The big economic wild card remains loose monetary policy, which includes negative interest rates, forcing investors to chase yield in the stock / bond markets. Nevertheless, years of positive equities returns camouflages the risks to typical investors. 5 US money center banks account for nearly $250 trillion in derivatives. The enormous leverage could expose the US financial sector to another 2008-2009 like credit fiasco. The recent selloff appears to be the result of forced paper liquidation, which could ignite a launch to $1,400 gold before year-end. If so, once above that level the sky is the limit. Unfortunately, a key impetus sending the sector higher could be societal fallout following the November elections in 2017.

Summary

  • Robert Kiyoaski returns to the show, America's 'Rich Dad' predicted a major financial crash in 2016, which has been delayed by policymaker programs.
  • Toxic debt purchases and negative interest rates are the most profound indication of economic stress.
  • Pension plans that based future payouts on high rates, not zero or negative rates, could shortchange many pensioners.
  • Robert Kiyosaki has stockpiled millions in the yellow metal as a hedge against runaway money printing schemes.
  • To say our guest distrusts paper assets is an understatement, "Bonds are the riskiest asset today," gold and silver are his favorite alternatives.
Robert Kiyoaski returns to the show, America's 'Rich Dad' predicted a major financial crash in 2016, which has been delayed by policymaker programs, such as toxic debt purchases and negative interest rates, the most profound indication of economic stress. As a result, pension plans that based future payouts on high rates, not zero or negative rates, could shortchange many pensioners. Robert Kiyosaki has stockpiled millions in the yellow metal as a hedge against runaway money printing schemes. To say our guest distrusts paper assets is an understatement, "Bonds are the riskiest asset today," gold and silver are his favorite alternatives. The Rich Dad book series author also penned two books with Presidential candidate, Donald Trump:, Why We Want You to Be Rich and The Midas Touch meant to guide the middle and working classes to prosperity. The discussion includes comments from the former Fed Chairman, Alan Greenspan, who noted in a recent TV interview that the US could face martial law, in similar fashion as Venezuela, formerly the economic powerhouse of South America. The $700 million to $3 trillion spent to bailout the US financial system in 2008-2009 Credit Crisis was sufficient to payoff the mortgage debt of the 10 million US foreclosures with money left over - instead it was directed to the financial system, primarily to the benefit of shareholders / bondholders. Our guest refers to the system as a kleptocracy, which takes from the poor and gives to the wealthy, a reverse Robin Hood system. Robert Kiyosaki underscores how the "Magic of compound interest," no longer works, when rates are near or below zero.

Highlights

  • Bob Hoye, editor and Chief investment strategist of Institutional Advisors returns with a new Global Warning Alert.
  • The bull market in the PMs remains intact - selling continues to offer enticing entry opportunities.
  • Our guest scans the minutiae for hints of financial tipping points, such as the climbing LIBOR rate which is behaving similarly to 2008.
  • Last week's FOMC meeting announcement and recent Fed Speak, suggests that rates will climb from .50% to 0.75% in December 2016 or February 2017.
  • The discussion includes the DB share collapse - much of the blogosphere expects DB shares to continue the death spiral.
  • Where there is one bad bank, there may be a slew of sick financial institutions, many of which have enormous toxic debt on their books.
  • Policymakers and institutions fail to recognize that markets are chaotic systems, where crises develop suddenly, sparked by seemingly insignificant events.
  • Caller John in San Diego who cites the similarities between a key bank failure of the Great Depression and the DB fiasco.
Bob Hoye, editor and Chief investment strategist of Institutional Advisors returns with a new Global Warning Alert. The bull market in the PMs remains intact - selling continues to offer enticing entry opportunities. The guest / host debate the merits of lofty gold targets, such as $10,000 - Nick Barisheff suggests that low gold allocations in pension funds / institutions around the globe indicate the target is sound. Bob Hoye suggests that such demand estimates oftentimes fail when put to the test. Our guest scans the minutiae for hints of financial tipping points, such as the climbing LIBOR rate which is behaving similarly to 2008, which culminated in high market volatility. Last week's FOMC meeting announcement and recent Fed Speak, suggests that rates will climb from .50% to 0.75% in December 2016 or February 2017. The discussion includes the DB share collapse - although much of the blogosphere expects DB shares to continue the death spiral, now that the Justice Dept. has lessened the fines imposed, last week's bottom continues to hold. Bob Hoye speculates that where there is one bad bank, there may be a slew of sick financial institutions, many of which have enormous toxic debt on their books. Policymakers and institutions fail to recognize that markets are chaotic systems, where dangerous crises develop suddenly, sparked by seemingly insignificant events. The host opens up the phone line for a call from John in San Diego who cites the similarities between a key bank failure in Europe during the Great Depression in Europe and the impending DB fiasco.

Next, Ward from Kashima Japan, as well as Martin and several listeners request a free copy of the bio of Paul Erdos, The Man Who Loved Only Numbers. Next, David and several listeners request a free copy of the story of Srinivasa Ramanujan, The Man Who Knew Infinity, arguably the greatest intuitive mathematician of all time, comparable to Gauss, Euler, etc. Karl and several listeners request a free copy of An Imaginary Tale: The Story of the Square Root of Minus One (i = -1^1/2); an illuminating book that demystifies complex numbers and their importance in electrical engineering, pure mathematics, statistics, information technology and physics. Complex numbers are not complex, they simply include a real component, such as 1, 2, 3... and an imaginary component, i.e., the Square Root of Minus One, -1^1/2. For instance, complex numbers typically take the form of the following expression: a + bi, where i is the square root of a negative whole number.

Arch Crawford, head of Crawford Perspectives showcases his investing methods that he's honed over forty years. Observation of market and astronomical anomalies indicates the potential of extreme volatility in 2017. Arch thinks the Fed does not have the remaining fire power to hold the US equities markets aloft forever. Gold remains one of Arch's favorite markets. The discussion includes the rumored "Metropolitan Plan" where US policymakers could implement negative interest rates (NIRP) following the footsteps of the PBoC (-3.7%), BOJ, ECB and Sweden. According to the Metropolitan Plan article, gold could ascend to over $10,000 per ounce - several top insiders are preparing contingencies:

John Paulson owns stakes in several gold-mining companies. David Einhorn is a huge gold bull, with more than $100 million invested in gold stocks. Paul Singer says it’s the only real money. Ray Dalio – founder of Bridgewater, the largest hedge fund in the world – says, “If you don’t own gold, you know neither history nor economics.

Arch Crawford outlines support / resistance levels for the gold market - he's watching for a break above $1,400 gold to indicate a resumption of the bull market, mirroring the thoughts of several recent guests.

Summary

  • Nick Barisheff of Bullion Management Group (BMG) notes that most of the above ground silver stockpiles were sold before the year 2000.
  • Only 20% of silver is the byproduct of pure silver mines, the remaining 80% is derived from base metal production, such as lead.
  • The net result: 50% of silver demand is industrial in nature with unique nearly vertical asymptote-like demand / supply curves.
  • No matter how costly silver becomes, industrial demand for items like solar panels and laptops / iPhones / Androids remains constant.
  • Even if jewelry demand were to drop to near 0%, the remaining 50% industrial demand holds constant.
  • When Ford Motors purchased $2 billion of palladium, the precious metal with similar industrial qualities leaped 10 fold (Figure 1.1).
  • Until the 2011 gold zenith, the trend in US debt and the price of gold tended to walk in lock step, in near perfect correlation.
  • If the relationship were to return, it would require a price of $3,000 gold to reflect today's debt levels
  • Using Professor Lawrence Kotlikoff's $200 trillion debt figure, $30,000 gold.
  • One day in the not so distant future, investors will notice gold is $2,000-$3,000 higher than the day before and it will be too late to procure discounted PMs.

     

Nick Barisheff of Bullion Management Group (BMG) notes that most of the above ground silver stockpiles were sold before the year 2000 and each ounce at the COMEX has 44 eligible owners. Moreover, only 20% of silver is the byproduct of pure silver mines, the remaining 80% is derived from base metal production, such as lead. The net result: 50% of silver demand is industrial in nature with unique nearly vertical asymptote-like demand / supply curves, which makes demand indifferent to increases in price. Put simply, no matter how costly silver becomes, industrial demand for items like solar panels and laptops / iPhones / Androids remains constant as there are no economical alternatives. Consequently, even if jewelry demand were to drop to near 0%, the remaining 50% industrial demand holds constant. Case in point, when Ford purchased $2 billion of palladium, the precious metal with similar industrial qualities leaped 10 fold (Figure 1.1). Until the 2011 gold zenith, the trend in US debt and the price of gold tended to walk in lock step, in near perfect correlation. If the relationship were to return, it would require a price of $3,000 gold to reflect today's debt levels and using Professor Lawrence Kotlikoff's $200 trillion debt figure, $30,000 gold. Our guest makes the chilling claim - one day in the not so distant future, investors will notice gold is $2,000-$3,000 higher than the day before and it will be too late to procure discounted PMs.

Summary

  • Jeffrey Nichols, Senior economist of Rosland Capital returns with his latest insights on the financial markets and the geopolitical drama.
  • His work indicates that once the $1,400 gold hurdle is surpassed, the former bull market return in all of its glory, ascending over $2,000.
  • Positive seasonal factors will continue to add upward momentum to the sector, due to demand stemming from Christmas, Hanukkah and Indian festivities.
  • Investors in newly affluent China will cause retailers to increase stockpiles.
  • Despite the remarkable 2016 rally, gold remains a de facto value relative to US equities, making gold an enticing bargain opportunity.
  • Large financial institutions / hedge funds / pension funds are turning to the relatively tiny PMs sector as an alternative to pricey shares / bonds.
  • Solid population growth in China / India will virtually insure robust future demand for the PMs.
Jeffrey Nichols, Senior economist of Rosland Capital returns with his latest insights on the financial markets and the geopolitical drama. His work indicates that once the $1,400 gold hurdle is surpassed, the former bull market return in all of its glory, ascending onwards and upwards to $1925 and to new zeniths over $2,000. Positive seasonal factors will continue to add upward momentum to the sector, as demand stemming from Christmas, Hanukkah and Indian festivities related demand as well as that from newly affluent China will cause retailers to increase stockpiles. Despite the remarkable 2016 rally, gold remains a de facto value relative to US equities, making gold an enticing bargain opportunity. Large financial institutions / hedge funds / pension funds are turning to the relatively tiny PMs sector as an alternative to pricey shares / bonds as evidenced by solid gold ETF demand figures ($10,000 Gold by Nick Barisheff covers this key issue). In addition, solid population growth in China / India will virtually insure robust future demand for the PMs.

  • The current budget deficit exceeds $107 billion, the persistent issue implies the potential for challenging economic conditions on a national scale.
  • Many top guests on this show have championed the idea of a balanced US Federal budget, including Dr. Ron Paul.
  • Unfortunately, the issue remains political kryponite, anathema to the election process.
  • The similarities between the current US equities indexes and that of 2008 are chilling.
  • 2016 is also a Presidential year, with the potential for another 2008-2009 like Great Recession / market meltdown.
  • The duo conclude that every investment portfolio should be positioned / hedged against potential selling.
  • The bottom is in place for the PMs sector, while silver is poised to yield exceptional gains.
  • Among the key drivers sending investors flooding into the PMs sector, continued Brexit-like events in the EU and the potential for negative rates in the US.
  • Despite record crude oil supply levels, the sector could spike to as high as $65 should the CRB commodities index rally persist.

Kevin Kerr of Kerr Trading International rejoins the show, with positive comments on the upcoming September 30th, US Federal Budget. The current budget deficit exceeds $107 billion, the persistent issue implies the potential for challenging economic conditions on a national scale. Many top guests on this show have championed the idea of a balanced US Federal budget, including Dr. Ron Paul. Nevertheless, it is unfortunate that the issue remains political kryponite, anathema to the election process. The similarities between the current US equities indexes and that of 2008 are chilling. For instance, 2016 is also a Presidential year, with the potential for another 2008-2009 like Great Recession / market meltdown. The duo conclude that every investment portfolio should be positioned / hedged against potential selling. Our guest thinks the bottom is in place for the PMs sector, while silver is poised to yield exceptional gains.

  • Our guest thinks gold represents the de facto investment opportunity.

Bill Murphy of GATA.org returns to the show with insights on the PMs sector. Evidently, the gold cartel continues to be the key shadowy force behind downward price movements in the PMs sector. However, physical supply constraints are hindering their efforts, as evidenced by the sharp recovery in price in recent weeks. The dialogue includes news from Sydney Australia via GATA.org, that gold miner, Resolute, is offering shareholders the option to receive gold bullion dividends, in lieu of a check. The shares skyrocketed several fold in recent months since the announcement. Recent commentary from Dr. Stephen Leeb implies that China's banks are accumulating large inventories of gold, to satisfy new IMF regulations as well as in anticipation of a new global reserve currency. Our guest is a gold aficionado with a penchant for silver, noting that AG has the greatest potential for explosive gains.

Highlights

  • Bob Hoye, senior investment strategist of Institutional Advisors returns with comments on the financial markets.
  • Our guest is monitoring the gold to silver ratio closely, noting the predictive powers, similar to a credit spread or yield curve.
  • Every investment portfolio must include gold / silver assets; the perfect insurance against global money printing.
  • According to a Labor Department Report, the US jobs included 100,000 fewer than anticipated, implying that the Fed has less wiggle room to raise rates.
  • The Fed remains the only hold out among the central banking trifecta to keep rates above zero, i.e., the BOJ, ECB.
  • John Williams latest figures at Shadowstats.com, the true national unemployment rate is approaching 25%, the worst since the Great Depression.
  • The reason for the discrepancy is that officials no longer consider the 95 million discouraged workers as part of the tally.
  • Tame energy prices offer gold / silver miners a competitive advantage, as energy is a major production expense.
  • Bob Hoye outlines why the precious metals sector will eventually be the hottest venue in the financial world, at least doubling from current levels.

The Fed remains the only hold out among the central banking trifecta to keep rates above zero, i.e., the BOJ, ECB. According to John Williams latest figures at Shadowstats.com, the true national unemployment rate is approaching 25%, the worst since the Great Depression, a bit higher than the official 4.9% figure. The reason for the discrepancy is that officials no longer consider the 95 million discouraged workers as part of the tally.

Highlights

  • John Embry, Senior Strategist at Sprott Asset Management returns with key insights into the startling 2016 PMs market rally.
  • The recent pullback represents a discounted buying opportunity within a new long-term bull market.
  • Once gold breaks out of the consolidation in terms of the US dollar, the de facto reserve currency, the bull market will continue.
  • China's official 3,000 ton gold reserve figure at the PBoC may be vastly understated; the true stockpile could represent the largest worldwide.
  • A recent article by Koos Jansen shows that China's top banks likely hold massive gold reserves, the traditional asset of choice.
  • The discussion includes "Bond King", Bill Gross, who may soon earn a new royal title of "Gold King."
  • The financially savvy professional seems to be losing his appetite for bonds in favor of gold.
  • The duo suggest that the billions of dollars / currencies held in paper form should be shifted into safer alternatives, such as bullion, and mining shares.
  • The world's most useful precious metal, silver may eventually outshine its rivals, sporting one of the most enviable investment valuations.
  • Once gold ascends to it's rightful place as king of currencies, the gold / silver ratio will return to 10:1, sending silver into the triple digits.
  • The Irish Times reported that the Bank of Ireland is now charging for the right to deposit funds, making home safes much more desirable.

John Embry, Senior Strategist at Sprott Asset Management returns with key insights into the startling 2016 PMs market rally. The recent pullback represents a discounted buying opportunity within a new long-term bull market. Once gold breaks out of the consolidation in terms of the US dollar, the de facto reserve currency will continue higher. In addition, the official 3,000 ton gold reserve figure at the PBoC is likely understated; the true stockpile could represent the largest worldwide by a factor of at least 2-3 fold, beyond even that of the USA and without encumbrance, such as leasing arrangements. In addition, a recent article by Koos Jansen shows that China's top banks likely hold massive gold reserves, the traditional asset of choice, contrary to their colleagues in the West, which detest the "barbarous relic." The discussion includes "Bond King", Bill Gross, who may soon earn a new royal title of "Gold King." The financially savvy professional seems to be losing his appetite for bonds in favor of gold. The duo suggest that the billions of dollars / currencies held in paper form should be shifted into safer alternatives, such as bullion, bars, coins and mining shares. Nevertheless, the world's most useful precious metal, silver may eventually outshine its rivals, sporting one of the most enviable investment valuations. Once gold ascends to it's rightful place as king of currencies, the gold / silver ratio will return to a more traditional 10:1 level, the naturally occurring mineralization rate, sending silver into the triple digits. The Irish Times just reported that the Bank of Ireland is now charging for the right to deposit funds, making home safes much more desirable wealth storage alternatives. The die is cast, the tipping point has been crossed, gold now yields intangible interest amid the negative interest rate environment. Case in point, sales in home safes are soaring across much of Europe, ground zero for ECB negative saving rates.

Highlights

  • Senior Research Fellow, Dr. Paul Craig Roberts rejoins the show. The bullion banks have "An infinite stockpile of naked gold shorts, driving down the price."
  • The shorting machination began in 2011, culminating in the 2016 gold rally.
  • An underground international bank transaction clearing system is jeopardizing US dollar hegemony;
  • "If the system gets up and running, big banks will no longer require dollar reserves."
  • The end game is obvious; inevitably market forces must establish equilibrium, sending the PMs skyward.

Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, the John M. Olin Fellow / Senior Research Fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, and Research Fellow at the Independent Institute, rejoins the show; he notes, "Bullion banks have "An infinite stockpile of naked gold shorts, driving down the price." The shorting machination began in 2011, culminating in the 2016 gold rally, at which point the shorting slowed, but did not stop. In addition, an underground international bank transaction clearing system is jeopardizing US dollar hegemony; "If the system gets up and running, big banks will no longer require dollar reserves." The end game is obvious; inevitably market forces must reestablish equilibrium, sending the PMs skyward. Eventually, higher rates will cause an economic depression of epic scale / breadth. The recent US jobs number may be skewed by false assumptions, i.e., Seasonal adjustments imply that the recent 277,000 job number is suspicious to the skeptical observer. In addition, the participation rate, or number of folks working, continues to decline on an annual basis, highly suggestive of bogus BLS numbers. Case in point, most new jobs offer few perquisites such as part-time, service jobs as the deterioration in the labor force continues in earnest resembling"The labor force of a 3rd world economy." The disturbing social theme is emblematic of the difficulties facing young couples attempting to establish and maintain households. "More than half of US 18-25 year olds live at home while nearly half of the 25-34 bracket live with parents, due in no small part to limited prospects, amid the offshoring of US manufacturing jobs. A final leg holding up the entire domestic edifice is the artificially low rate environment. Near zero rates boosts house prices, making refinancing simple vis–à–vis debt securitization. The strategy will work until either debt availability halts or the housing bubble bursts. Our guest echoes the sentiments of Shadowstats.com's John William's and that of the host: when inflation is properly included, the real GDP has been essentially flat to negative since 2000, representing the deepest and least recognized depression in national history, essentially dismantling the impetus that pulled the US out of the pre-industrial dark ages and the de facto, "Deindustrialization of the USA." Without manufacturing jobs, the tax base collapses, and inevitably, the currency / economy. According to our guest, no market is free due to manipulation and easy debt. For instance, stock P/E's are high on a historical basis, primarily due to Fed based excess liquidity.
