Highlights

  • Alternative economist, John Williams of Shadowstats.com sees economic Armageddon on the horizon.
  • Over $100 trillion in US obligations make maintaining the national debt, impossible.
  • The actual inflation rate that most people experience is much higher than the official figure, which boosts revenues by hundreds of billions of dollars.
  • Despite protests to the contrary, the real unemployment rate remains stubbornly elevated (Figure 1.1.).
  • Our guest rejects the notion of domestic economic recovery - he expects quantitative easing (QE) to resume with gusto, leading to runaway inflation and elevated gold prices.
  • John Williams anticipates dollar selling and weaker economic conditions to send US share indexes lower in 2018.

Highlights

  • Louis Navellier of Navellier & Associates says investors should ignore the naysayers, US equities will rally into the holiday season.
  • Investors cannot shake their insatiable appetite for equities dividend payments, creating a self-fulfilling prophecy of ever higher prices.
  • The flattening yield curve suggests that the upcoming FOMC quarter point rate hike slated for December, will likely be the last of the cycle.
  • Given the host's forecast of 24,000 by 2018 and Louis Navellier's growth estimate of 11%; upgrades are examined via the Navellier Rating Service.
  • Companies reviewed include Insurance company Aflac, Prudential (PUK), Bristol Myers (BMY) and Phillips 66 (PSX) as solid dividend paying candidates, and China's Twitter company Weibo (WB) (figure 1.1.).
  • Louis Navellier advises each portfolio hold at least 4-8% gold as a ballast to right the portfolio amid tepid financial conditions.
  • Our guest is concerned that extensive use of robotic trading on Wall Street could lead to another 2015-style flash crash.

Louis Navellier of Navellier & Associates says investors should ignore the naysayers, US equities will continue to rally into Thanksgiving and the Holidays on typical positive seasonal factors. With the real rate of interest at or below zero amid elevated corporate earnings and possibly the last Fed rate increase at the upcoming Dec FOMC meeting, investors cannot shake their insatiable appetite for equities dividend payments, creating a self-fulfilling prophecy of ever higher prices. Given the host's forecast of 24,000 by 2018 and Louis Navellier's growth estimate of 11%, the duo exam several stock upgrades from various sectors that recently climbed from a hold to a buy rating on the Navellier Rating Service. Companies reviewed include Insurance company AFLAC, Prudential (PUK), Bristol Meyers Squib dividend paying, Phillips 66 (PSX) is a solid dividend paying candidate, and China's Twitter company Weibo (WB), (figure 1.1.). The discussion turns to the gold market - Louis Navellier advises each portfolio hold at least 4-8% gold as a ballast to right the portfolio amid tepid financial conditions. Our guest is concerned that extensive use of robotic trading on Wall Street could lead to another 2015-style flash crash, where automated trading resulted in over a 30% intraday price swing and several companies shares dropped 90% or more, only to rebound, stopping out thousands of investors in the process. The flattening yield curve suggests that the upcoming FOMC quarter point rate hike slated for December, will likely be the last of the cycle.

  • John Scurci, head of Corona Associates Capital Management, outlines his analysis of the cryptocurrency phenomenon.
  • "Blockchain is here to stay and is truly innovative... only 4% of BTC owners control 90% of the market cap."
  • Merely 21 million BTC will ever exist, millions have evaporated or were lost on discarded hard drives, lost pass codes and "dust."
  • 100% of all BTC will be mined by 2040.
  • When juxtaposed with the global reserve currency, BTC has obvious appeal.
  • Segwit2X (B2X) was canceled Wednesday night, reportedly due to lack of consensus among the developers.
  • The market response was abrupt and dramatic; BTC launched to within earshot of $8,000 per coin, only to settle back to the previous days lows. .
  • For early BTC entrants who 10x'ed their initial investment, locking in some profits to purchase discounted PM may be advisable.
  • The duo concur, the PMs sector is under-owned and underpriced.
  • A recent article illustrated gold's intrinsic value when adjusted appropriately for real inflation, approaches $15,000.
  • John Scurci relays a humorous moniker for the yellow metal, calling "Gold... the un-bubble asset."
  • Gold remains the reserve asset of choice for central banks, the engineers of monetary policy, which improves the appeal of owning gold / BTC immensely.
  • Gold / BTC ownership is comparable to owning a mini central bank.
  • While fiat money is debt based, gold / BTC have zero entanglements or liens, representing truly sound money.
  • The discussion steers to the M1 Money Supply figure against the S&P 500.
  • A clear correlation to monetary expansion and soaring US equities prices emerges within the St. Louis Fed's graph (figure 1.1.).

John Scurci, head of Corona Associates Capital Management, outlines his analysis of the cryptocurrency phenomenon, noting "Blockchain is here to stay and is truly innovative." Nevertheless, he notes that "... only 4% of BTC owners control 90% of the market cap." On the other hand, merely 21 million BTC will ever exist, millions have evaporated or were lost on discarded hard drives, lost pass codes and "dust", and 100% will be mined by 2040. When juxtaposed with the global reserve currency, which has lost 98% of its value in 100 years due to unlimited supply constraints, BTC has obvious appeal. Segwit2X (B2X) was canceled Wednesday night, reportedly due to lack of consensus among the developers - the market response was abrupt and dramatic; BTC launched to within earshot of $8,000 per coin, only to settle back to the previous days lows. For early BTC entrants who 10x'ed their initial investment, locking in some profits to purchase discounted gold / silver investments may represent a prudent relative value. The duo concur, the PMs sector is under-owned and underpriced; a recent article illustrated gold's intrinsic value when adjusted appropriately for real inflation, approaches $15,000. John Scurci relays a humorous moniker for the yellow metal, calling "Gold... the un-bubble asset." Gold remains the reserve asset of choice for central banks, the engineers of monetary policy, which improves the appeal of owning gold / BTC immensely as it makes the owner a de facto, mini central bank. While fiat money is debt based, gold / BTC have zero entanglements or liens, representing truly sound money. The discussion steers to the M1 Money Supply figure against the S&P 500; the clear correlation to monetary expansion and soaring US equities prices is noteworthy (figure 1.1.).

  • Head of the Trends Research Institute, Gerald Celente shares the hosts' enthusiasm for Bitcoin and related Altcoins.
  • The blockchain revolution presents a key portfolio candidate for investors with a long-term focus.
  • He outlines his personal Altcoin portfolio.

Head of the Trends Research Institute, Gerald Celente shares the hosts' enthusiasm for Bitcoin and related Altcoins. The blockchain revolution presents a key portfolio candidate for investors with a long-term focus - he outlines his personal Altcoin portfolio. Cryptocoins could be viewed as a safe harbor asset amid economic / financial turmoil, similar to the PMs. The duo concur; investors are encouraged to dollar cost average into the cryptocurrencies / PMs over months / years, instead of attempting to time the market. It may be advisable to adhere to the established names in the field when building a diversified crypto portfolio, as the lead developers / venture capitalists gravitate to the key projects. A hypothetical portfolio includes the following symbols (included for illustration purposes, not as investment advice):

  • 50% BTC (beta +1.0),
  • 10% GLD (beta .60),
  • 10% ETH (beta .55),
  • 10% LTC (beta .60),
  • 10% BCC (beta .60),
  • 5% XMR (beta .40),
  • 5% UUP LEAPS (beta -.89).

The host identified a reliable Bitcoin statistical correlation that suggests one method to hedge BTC profits involves the UUP ETF that shares a -.89 correlation with BTC – a small LEAPS option position in UUP requires further analysis (figure 1.1.).

Listeners' Q&A - Chris Waltzek Ph.D. - November 7, 2017.

Mp3 format.

 

Highlights

  • The latest Listener's Q&A segment includes emails and phone calls on various topics, from John, Kenneth and Daniel.
  • A the big top involves the imminent Bitcoin Hard Fork, SegWit2X (B2X).
  • B2X is a new blockchain that will fork or split away from BTC around Nov. 14-16.
  • The brainchild of Jeff Garzik, currently the lone B2X developer.
  • B2X stands for segregated witness, a proposed upgrade to the BTC blockchain that doubles or 2x's the block size.
  • While B2X is a monumental task and potentially beneficial, the event is not without detractors, including Roger Ver.
  • Roger Ver vehemently opposes B2X, AKA"The Bitcoin Jesus" makes a compelling case for BTC developers to focus instead on lowering fees.
  • Ver notes B2X offers a strategic advantage to alternative cryptocurrencies, such as Litecoin (LTC), Dash (DSH) and Monero (XMR).
  • The first caller, John from San Diego is concerned about replay attacks (losing Bitcoin / B2X) following the B2X event, known as a snapshot.
  • Following B2X snapshot, the threat of replay attacks (RA) is substantial, if the newly airdropped B2X coins are not split from the mirror BTC.
  • The host suggests a novel solution to the RA issue, following the guidelines supplied by the lead 10X developer.
  • The best way to be 99% certain to retain both the BTC and B2X, is to hold the BTC and private keys in cold storage before and well after the B2X fork snapshot.

The latest Listener's Q&A segment includes emails and phone calls on various topics, from John, Kenneth and Daniel, including the imminent Bitcoin Hard Fork, SegWit2X (B2X). B2X is a new blockchain that will fork or split away from BTC around Nov. 14-16. The brainchild of Jeff Garzik, currently the lone B2X developer. B2X stands for segregated witness, a proposed upgrade to the BTC blockchain that doubles or 2x's the block size, in theory reducing transaction fees and delays. While B2X is a monumental task and potentially beneficial, the event is not without detractors, including Roger Ver, who vehemently opposes B2X. Roger Ver, "The Bitcoin Jesus" makes a compelling case for BTC developers to focus instead on lowering fees and transaction delays in a more dramatic and timely fashion, to avoid granting a strategic advantage to alternative cryptocurrencies, such as Litecoin (LTC), Dash (DSH) and Monero (XMR). The first caller, John from San Diego is concerned about replay attacks (losing Bitcoin / B2X) following the B2X event, known as a snapshot. Following B2X snapshot, the threat of replay attacks (RA) is substantial, if the newly airdropped B2X coins are not split from the mirror BTC.

Bill Murphy & Chris Waltzek Ph.D. - November 2, 2017.

  • For 20 years, Bill Murphy and Chris Powell of GATA.org have lead the crusade for transparency with the gold cartel.
  • A few months earlier, Bitcoin enthusiasts were stunned / elated to find the digital currency was at parity, with gold $1,250.
  • Today, Bitcoin is over 5 times the price of gold due in part to the CME's plans to list Bitcoin futures contracts by year end!
  • BTC is poised to compete head to head as a global reserve currency, potentially usurping at least 100 years of draconian financial regulations and legislation.
  • In a potentially ironic twist, the much maligned Bitcoin may be paving the highways and building the bridges to parabolic gains in PM.
  • Bit-coin of levity for enthusiasts follows.

For 20 years, Bill Murphy and Chris Powell of GATA.org have lead the crusade for transparency with the gold cartel. Bill Murphy returns with bullish commentary on the precious metals sector and Bitcoin. A few months earlier, Bitcoin enthusiasts were stunned / elated to find the digital currency was at parity, with gold $1,250. Today, Bitcoin is over 5 times the price of gold due in part to the CME's plans to list Bitcoin futures contracts by year end! BTC is poised to compete head to head as a global reserve currency, potentially usurping at least 100 years of draconian financial regulations and legislative quagmires. In a potentially ironic twist, the much maligned Bitcoin may be paving the highways and building the bridges to parabolic gains, in gold and silver investments.

A Bit-coin of levity for enthusiasts:

A coder on a Bitcoin.com panel posted on YouTube, was running an AI that paints actual pictures and lists them for sale on eBay without human interaction. Following the first big sale, the coder typed to the AI, “You’ve made us some Bitcoin, nice job...” to which the AI retorted, “What do you mean, us?”

The upcoming gold backed, Yuan-based oil contract, from China is threatening the petrol-dollar arrangement, at least in Asia. In addition, it could benefit gold aficionados, as the PBoC must procure considerably larger stockpiles to secure the contract. Our guest posits that the PMs will break free from the cartel, once the physical bullion market reestablishes itself as the de facto, price establishing mechanism.

The November Segwit2x (B2X) Fork will yield a dividend of approximately 20% for all Bitcoin holders, ONLY if managed correctly. Login to your Alpha Stocks / Bitcoin Newsletter account for ALL THE MUST KNOW INFO.

Highlights

  • Arch Crawford, head of Crawford Perspectives, discusses the worst natural disaster in California history, the 2017 firestorm.
  • The host proposes that 40 lives and 8,000 structures might have been spared if clay / metal roof panels were required by state building codes.
  • The onus of most of the fires stemmed from smoldering embers spread by the 40 mph gusts to adjacent roofs, where highly flammable tar tiles quickly ignited.
  • Californian officials are URGED to implement a statewide roofing upgrade.
  • Using tax credits and incentives, clay tile roofs would protect against future firestorms.
  • The show dialogue turns to the Bitcoin miracle; much of the recent strength is arguably due to accumulation ahead of the upcoming Segwit2x Hard-Fork.
  • The event is slated for mid-November; hard forks represent a token dividend.
  • While detractors cite the extreme volatility of Bitcoin, the host refutes the argument.
  • The king of cryptos differentiates itself in many ways from traditional currencies, including divisibility down to .00000001, as well as a nearly instantaneous transaction rate, essentially eliminating most of the volatility issues.

Arch Crawford, head of Crawford Perspectives, discusses the worst natural disaster in California history, the 2017 firestorm. The host proposes that 40 lives and 8,000 structures might have been spared if clay / terra cotta roofing panels were required by state building codes. Case in point, the onus of most of the fires stemmed from smoldering embers spread by the 40 mph gusts to adjacent roofs, where highly flammable tar tiles quickly ignited. Californian officials are URGED to implement a statewide roofing upgrade, using tax credits and incentives to protect against future firestorms. The show dialogue turns to the Bitcoin miracle; much of the recent strength is arguably due to accumulation ahead of the upcoming Segwit2x Hard-Fork slated for mid-November; hard forks represent a token dividend.

Bob Hoye & Chris Waltzek Ph.D. - October 25, 2017.

* Mp3 download.

 

Highlights

  • Bob Hoye of Institutional Advisors rejoins the show with Part II on the Bitcoin phenomenon.
  • According to the mythical founder of Bitcoin, Satoshi Nakamoto, in Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System (2008), trust in financial transactions was hijacked by the financial intermediaries.
  • The solution emerged from the elimination of the blockchain signature / hashing system.
  • A simple way to view Bitcoin is a CPU powered network where each node votes via CPU power to verify its block in the block chain.
  • Antonopolous estimates that not even the computing power / financial resources of an entire superpower could falsify a single transaction.
  • Antonopolous' defense of Bitcoin / Block chain is arguable comparable to the Constitutional Convention of 1776 (figure 1.1.).
  • Although an unpopular view, the host confirms the notion that Bitcoin = Digital Gold, or a close facsimile.
  • For the first time in 50 years of digital commerce an identical contract or Bitcoin has a unique signature, emulating the gold content of a coin.
  • In true Talebian fashion, the Bitcoin network is de facto anti-fragile, i.e., similar to the internet / email, if one node or several fail, the network is safe.
  • Based loosely on Metcalfe's Law governing any digital network, a unique Bitcoin valuation model emerges.
  • The square of the number of users of ANY network times the average transaction rate over the total users.
  • Given the 4.2 million users, figure is squared it and multiplied by the daily average transaction per block and voila, near the current price.
  • To identify a forecast, apply Google's Trend analysis to anticipate the new number of Bitcoin Users, which reveals that the number doubles every year.
  • A basic BTC valuation model results in a 1$ million Bitcoin price in 7 years.

Bob Hoye of Institutional Advisors rejoins the show with Part II on the Bitcoin phenomenon. According to the mythical founder of Bitcoin, Satoshi Nakamoto, in Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System (2008), trust in financial transactions was hijacked by the financial intermediaries. The solution emerged from the elimination of the blockchain signature / hashing system, which replaces the need for costly, authoritarian, trust based, 3rd parties, with a an efficient and low cost proof-of-work (PoW) system, preventing double spending. A simple way to view Bitcoin is a CPU powered network where each node votes via CPU power to verify its block in the block chain; a virtually hack proof system due to the enormous computing power required to crack Bitcoin. Andreas Antonopolous estimates that not even the computing power / financial resources of an entire superpower could falsify a single transaction, costing as much as $1 billion dollars, making it waste of resources that could ironically otherwise create millions of dollars mining Bitcoin. Antonopolous' defense of Bitcoin / Block chain is comparable, arguably to the Constitutional Convention of 1776 (figure 1.1.). Although an unpopular view, the host confirms the notion that Bitcoin = Digital Gold, or a close facsimile. Case in point, for the first time in 50 years of digital commerce an identical contract or Bitcoin has a unique signature, emulating the gold content while retaining individual characteristics of a gold coin. In true Talebian fashion, the Bitcoin network is de facto anti-fragile, i.e., similar to the internet / email, if one node or several fail, the network is easily reestablished and functional. So in a perfect world, ceteris paribus, what is a future price for BTC? Based loosely on Metcalfe's Law governing any digital network, a unique Bitcoin valuation model emerges: the square of the number of users of ANY network times the average transaction rate over the total users. Using the widely accepted Cambridge University estimates of the number of Bitcoin users, the mean value, 4.2 million people is squared it and multiplied by the daily average transaction per block and voila, near the current price. To identify a forecast, apply Google's Trend analysis to anticipate the new number of Bitcoin Users, which reveals that the number doubles every year. Although price forecasts can fail, due to slower user growth / transaction rates and regulatory and competition adjustments if the current trend persists, a most basic BTC valuation model results in a 1$ million Bitcoin price in 7 years (this hypothesis is purely speculative and should not be construed as investment advice).

On the scene in Puerto Rico Harry S. Dent Jr. offers first hand perspective on the plight of 3.4 million inhabitants struggling to survive with little if any power, basic utilities and provisions. Still living without power, our guest recollects his harrowing 15 hour ordeal amid Hurricane Maria, waiting out the storm in his condo - many adjacent units are sans windows. Goldseek.com sent a small power inverter to facilitate laptop / mobile usage. Listener's are asked to send care packages to PR - Amazon.com offers free shipping to the island for Prime members. Dried foods, MREs, canned items, batteries and small rechargeable solar items are appreciated. Meanwhile, our guest views US equities indexes as a financial bubble looking for an opportunity to implode. In similar fashion as the now infamous crash of 1987 or the 40% tech crash of 2000, investors may have little warning if any to exit the market before a 25%+ drop unfolds. Regardless of the inflation / deflation debate, Harry S. Dent Jr. expects gold to shine brightly as the investment du jour. The discussion turns to Bitcoin and related altcoins, which may represent a lower cost, faster and more secure means of digital purchases. In addition, Bitcoin wallets are actually free checking accounts with zero fees or overdraft charges that cannot be overdrawn or involve chargebacks, representing a decentralized, nearly perfect monetary system, limited in supply and unbounded in scope. Case in point - with the world on the cusp of a blockchain revolution, even a discarded iPhone / Android offers free internet service without any fees at a local WIFI establishment, such as a coffee shop, granting any of the billions of global inhabitants an instant checking / savings / investment account and a means to earn income for survival via merely scanning a QR code. Furthermore, tedious and burdensome records / assets are migrating to the blockchain domain, including real estate deeds, insurance contracts, home / auto / boat titles, gold, silver, hospital records, eliminating waste and downtime while insuring better accuracy at a fraction of the expense. Consequently, Bitcoin offers a new universe of employment opportunities for blockchain aficionado / entrepreneurs.

As US equities continue to smash 120 year records, Peter Grandich of Peter Grandich and Company outlines the reasons for his short position in US equities, including record debt levels, entitlement programs, crumbling domestic infrastructure, social / political division and unfunded pensions. Peter offers his book, FREE to Goldseek listeners / readers - book testimonials are found at this link. The discussion includes the push by a handful of champions of personal freedom, to revive sound money systems, such as Hugo Salinas Price's proposal to establish a silver peso. The duo conjecture if US officials will learn from the event, by circulating a new batch of silver dimes, quarters and half dollars, but at much higher face values. Peak gold and supply constraints could prove to be the key impetus sending the metals skyward. Adding to upward momentum, the most recent CPI figure leaped from 1.9% to 2.2%, indicating greater odds of higher prices / inflation, which tends to coincide with stronger PMs prices. Peter Grandich offers key investment portfolio insights.

Highlights

  • Bill Murphy of GATA.org returns with bullish commentary on Bitcoin and the precious metals sector.
  • Bill Murphy clarifies news on China's in-ground gold reserves figure that soared to 12,100 tons.
  • The discussion includes today's break above $5,200 Bitcoin - some top analysts are calling for $7,000, while Clif High makes a plausible case for $13,000 BTC.
  • The PTB cannot find a way to contain the viral Bitcoin / Blockchain epidemic, as they have the PMs markets via paper money schemes.
  • Once the cryptospace is dominated by the big institutions, interest will return to gold and silver in a big way.
  • Just as Ethereum is arguably silver to the Bitcoin gold, silver has great potential to leap suddenly to triple digits, following the lead of Ethereum.
  • The host speculates that the tipping point could unfold as gold / silver assets migrate to the blockchain domain, such as the upcoming OneGram crowdsale.

Bill Murphy of GATA.org returns with bullish commentary on Bitcoin and the precious metals sector. Bill Murphy clarifies news on China's in-ground gold reserves figure that soared to 12,100 tons. The discussion includes today's break above $5,200 Bitcoin - some top analysts are calling for $7,000, while Cliff High makes a plausible case for $13,000 BTC in the coming months. The duo concur with Rob Kirby's analysis - the PTB cannot find a way to contain the viral Bitcoin / Blockchain epidemic, as they have the PMs markets via paper money schemes. Once the cryptospace is dominated by the big institutions, interest will return to gold and silver in a big way. Just as Ethereum is arguably silver to the Bitcoin gold, silver has great potential to leap suddenly to triple digits, following the lead of Ethereum. The host speculates that the tipping point could unfold as gold / silver assets migrate to the blockchain domain, such as the upcoming OneGram crowdsale, a Smith-Crown startup.

Highlights

The head of SchiffGold, Euro Pacific Capital, and Euro Pacific Gold Fund (EPGFX), owns a house and condo in Puerto Rico, where a direct hit from CAT 4 Hurricane Maria plunged all 3.4 million inhabitants into total darkness for up to 6 months - hundreds of thousands will require relocation. In addition, the discussion includes new national emergency in California - wild fires have claimed at least 30 fatalities, hundreds of missing persons, 4000 structures were destroyed and billions in damages. The string of natural disasters in 2017 illustrate the importance for every household to prepare for unexpected power outages, dislocations, food shortages, etc. Peter Schiff is less concerned with the imminent rate hike expected (87% odds) at the December FOMC meeting, focussing instead on a potential quantitative easing, where Fed officials absorb toxic MBS and Treasury debt to give the illusion of economic prosperity. Meanwhile, China announced plans to "compel" Saudi Arabia to exchange oil for Yuan / gold, a big plus for the PMs markets, an event Hugo Salinas Price noted was world changing. In similar fashion, Venezuela just suggested a preference for the Ruble / Yuan over the Greenback for energy trading. As the world turns to alternative currencies, a watershed moment could unfold for precious metals investors. China stunned the world with news that official gold reserves soared to 12,000 tons in-ground - several sources speculate the actual figure is 20,000-30,000 tons, including friend of the show, Dr. Stephen Leeb. Adding to the case for gold, market pundit, Dennis Gartman recently announced that the BIS is attempting to suppress the gold price. Our guest notes that regardless of manipulation schemes, inevitably market forces will send the price back to it's natural, higher level. He suggests 5-10% portfolio exposure to bullion and up to 20% in gold equities as a bare minimum, in a diversified format. The host attempts to persuade the guest regarding the merits of Bitcoin and related Altcoins as a digital currency alternatives, illustrating the crypto-domain as the pre-bubble dot.com era - top stars with solid first mover advantage and functionality will thrive such as Bitcoin / Ethereum will survive emulating the success of the early market entrants, Amazon / Netflix / Google, etc.

Highlights

  • Bob Hoye of Institutional Advisors rejoins the show with an update on the Bitcoin phenomenon.
  • For the first time in economic history, the masses have a chance to grab the reigns of the money supply, central banks are no longer required.
  • While institutions such as JP Morgan spread negative rhetoric on the cryptocurrencies, many continue to secretly accumulate vast stockpiles.
  • Elliott wave analysis suggests that Bitcoin (BTC) should retrace from the recent $5,000 peak to at least $2,600.
  • Still, the BTC rocketship could continue unabated skyward to $10,000.
  • The PTB will continue to struggle against cryptos as their system unravels at an increasing pace.
  • The Greenback is now jeopardized by the introduction of a gold backed petrol contract in China.
  • The petrol-dollar arrangement of 1974 must now compete in the East with a petrol-gold-Yuan alternative.
  • Financial bubbles are now the new norm, including junk bonds, US equities, domestic real estate in Canada and even some cryptocurrencies.
  • A few legendary technophiles, such as John McAfee and Marketwatch.com are suggesting that Bitcoin could climb to a peak of at least $500,000.
  • The S&P has eclipsed year 2000 bubble levels by many metrics, including P/E ratios and Bob Hoye's top indicators.
  • The credit spread and yield curve remain positive, so equities could continue to surprise on the upside, but the risk offers a meager expected return.

Bob Hoye of Institutional Advisors rejoins the show with an update on the Bitcoin phenomenon. For the first time in economic history, the masses have a chance to grab the reigns of the money supply, central banks are no longer required, at least in the digital realm. While institutions such as JP Morgan spread negative rhetoric on the cryptocurrencies, many continue to secretly accumulate vast stockpiles of Bitcoin, including JP Morgan. While Elliott wave analysis suggests that Bitcoin should retrace from the recent $5,000 peak to at least $2,600, perhaps even further, the rocketship could continue unabated skyward to $10,000. Nevertheless, the PTB will continue to struggle against cryptos as their system unravels at an increasing pace. Similar to 1914 as the Pound Sterling began to wane as the de facto reserve currency due in part to national debt accumulated from two World Wars, the Greenback is now jeopardized by the introduction of a gold backed petrol contract in China. Ergo, the petrol-dollar arrangement of 1974 must now compete in the East with a petrol-gold-Yuan alternative. Financial bubbles are now the new norm, including junk bonds, US equities, domestic real estate in Canada and even some cryptocurrencies. A few legendary technophiles, such as John McAfee and Marketwatch.com are suggesting that Bitcoin could climb to a peak of at least $500,000, in three years time. The S&P has eclipsed year 2000 bubble levels by many metrics, including P/E ratios and Bob Hoye's top indicators. The credit spread and yield curve remain positive, so equities could continue to surprise on the upside, but the risk may not warrant a meager expected return.

Highlights

  • James Rickards makes his show debut, author of The New Case for Gold, the private placement, MERAGLIM and the James Rickards Project.
  • As a key negotiator in the 1998 LTCM bailout and advisor to the DoD / CIA / Los Alamos, James Rickards outlines sophisticated analytical models.
  • Bayes' Theorem, a conditional analysis method facilitates forecasting the tipping point / phase transition of highly complex systems.
  • The global financial system nearly imploded in 1998, then again in 2008; his models suggest that by 2018 a new financial fiasco could materialize.
  • The US Fed increased the balance sheet from $800 billion to $4 trillion since 2009 while holding rates near zero for 6 years without normalizing.
  • The operations exposed the world's most important CB vulnerable to a new economic meltdown.
  • Once the inevitable implosion begins in earnest, our guest expects the IMF, the lender of last resort to distribute its own currency, SDRs.
  • Similar to Kurt Vonnegut's epic SciFi novel, Cat's Cradle (free PDF) our guest draws parallels between Ice-9 and the global economic system.
  • The global economy could suddenly freeze up, with startling implications for all 7 billion inhabitants.
  • The seasoned lawyer confirms the suspicions of many, including GATA.org, inadequate bullion exists to support the 1:100 gold to paper contracts.
  • James Rickards echoes the thoughts of several guests, supporting the solid case for $10,000 gold and perhaps much higher.
  • Policymakers who believe the gold at Fort Knox / West Point / NY Fed is sufficient to sustain the economy are mistaken.
  • The stockpile is likely leveraged 10:1 or even 100:1, leaving the US Treasury vulnerable to bankruptcy.
  • China has plans to eclipse our national gold reserves via the purchase of 3,000 tons of gold in the next 2 years, $130 billion, at the current price level.
  • Key takeaway: it is advisable to procure precious metals and related shares at current levels.
  • James Rickards presents an overview of his Meragrim private placement that uses the cutting edge AI from IBM's Watson to predict / forecast essential outcomes in the geopolitical arena (figure 1.1).

James Rickards, best-selling author of The New Case for Gold, of the private placement, MERAGLIM and The James Rickards Project, makes his show debut. As a key negotiator in the 1998 LTCM bailout and advisor to the DoD / CIA / Los Alamos, James Rickards employs sophisticated analytical models, based on Bayes Theorem, a conditional analysis method used for forecasting the tipping point / phase transition of highly complex systems, such as weather patterns and financial markets. The global financial system nearly imploded in 1998, then again in 2008; his models suggest that by 2018 a new financial fiasco could jeopardize the entire banking system, including the central banks. The US Fed increased the balance sheet from $800 billion to $4 trillion since 2009 while holding rates near zero for 6 years without normalizing, or unwinding the QE operations, leaving the world's most important CB vulnerable to a new economic meltdown. Once the inevitable implosion begins in earnest, our guest expects the IMF, the lender of last resort to distribute its own currency, special drawing rights (SDRs) by the trillions to the Fed, PBoC, ECB, BoJ and the BoE. In similar fashion as Kurt Vonnegut's epic SciFi novel, Cat's Cradle (free PDF) our guest draws parallels between Ice-9 and the global economic system; the entire world economy could freeze up suddenly with frightening implications for all 7 billion inhabitants. After spending years delving into the minutiae of most gold lending contracts / arrangements, the seasoned lawyer confirms the suspicions of many, including GATA.org, there's inadequate physical bullion to support the more than 1 : 100 paper gold contracts. James Rickards echoes the thoughts of several guests, making a solid case for $10,000 gold and perhaps much higher. Policymakers who believe the gold at Fort Knox / West Point, NY Fed is sufficient to sustain the economy are mistaken - the stockpile is likely leveraged 10:1 or even 100:1, leaving the US Treasury vulnerable to bankruptcy. China has plans to eclipse our national gold reserves via the purchase of 3,000 tons of gold in the next 2 years, $130 billion, at the current price level. Key takeaway: it is advisable to procure precious metals and related shares at current levels as it may prove difficult, even impossible to do so at reasonable prices in the not so distant horizon. James Rickards presents an overview of his Meragrim private placement that uses the cutting edge AI from IBM's Watson to predict / forecast essential outcomes in the geopolitical arena (figure 1.1).

  • As investors / institutions search for safety and returns amid an economic environment of negative interest rates and unfavorable conditions.
  • The Forecaster is one of the few guests to correctly identify the US equities bull market.
  • Armstrong expects the rally to continue for years, perhaps as long as 2024, sending the stock indexes to unimaginable heights, at least 25k Dow Jones.
  • The discussion turns to the tragedy in Puerto Rico, where 3.4 million souls have no power and might remain without it for 4-6 months.

  • Armstrong makes a dire prediction - 2018 could mark the year of the first central bank default.
  • The ECB owns approximately 40% of the EU's toxic debt and offers negative interest rates, the institution could go bankrupt.
  • Plans to contain the debt via a consolidated CDO could backfire. As a result, 2018-2024 could be explosive years for the PMs.

Martin Armstrong of Armstrong Economics, notes that capital flight continues to plague the markets, as investors / institutions search for safety and returns amid an economic environment of negative interest rates and unfavorable investment conditions. The Forecaster is one of the few guests to correctly identify the US equities bull market - he expects the rally to continue for years, perhaps as long as 2024, sending the stock indexes to unimaginable heights, at least 25k on the Dow Jones as long as the Dow continues to lead the S&P 500 / Nasdaq. The discussion turns to the tragedy in Puerto Rico, where 3.4 million souls have no power and might remain without it for 4-6 months, 7,000 are living in shelters and most homes are now uninhabitable - the island requires massive emergency relief or many will perish, according to media reports. The gold market will inevitably move higher, but Martin Armstrong takes a unique perspective on the impetus of the next gold market rally - the US dollar could soar further than expected, causing huge global currency imbalances, causing a flood of funds to flood the yellow metal market.

Summary

  • Nick Barisheff of Bullion Management Group (BMG) and author of $10,000 Gold: Why Gold's Inevitable Rise Is the Investor's Safe Haven (2013) returns.
  • Our guest shares positive comments on the precious metals sector.
  • As digital security issues plague the modern financial system, safe haven investing is becoming increasingly important for every investor.
  • Readers / listener are advised to perform a free check to see if their identity was stolen via the Equifax Potential Impact Tool.
  • A confluence of troubling security breaches worldwide might prompt policymakers to adopt a global currency.
  • One candidate for an alternative reserve currency is the Yuan, convertible to gold, better facilitating crude oil / commerce transactions.
  • Our guest has identified a triple bubble in stocks / bonds / residential housing, where current share valuations mirror those of the 1929 peak.
  • The risk of missing further gains in US equities pales in comparison with the potential risk of loss.
  • Nick Barisheff questions how markets will respond amid bear market conditions, given the less than robust activity during the current bull market.
  • The World Gold Council announced that gold production has peaked - mines can no longer produce enough output to increase the supply.
  • Given the $260 trillion in global financial assets and that institutions own less than half a percent of PMs and investors less than 1 percent, potential gains in the comparably small $1 trillion PMs market could be startling.

Nick Barisheff of Bullion Management Group (BMG) and author of $10,000 Gold: Why Gold's Inevitable Rise Is the Investor's Safe Haven (2013), returns with positive comments on the precious metals sector. As digital security issues plague the modern financial system, including the highly publicized Equifax database hack, which compromised half of America, 143 million clients, safe haven investing is becoming increasingly important for every investor. Readers / listener are advised to perform a free check to see if their information was stolen via the Equifax Potential Impact Tool (The host's account tested positive). A confluence of troubling security breaches, worldwide might prompt policymakers to adopt a global currency, presenting potentially troubling news for advocates of personal freedom. One candidate for an alternative reserve currency is the Yuan that is convertible to gold, better facilitating crude oil / commerce transactions. Our guest has identified a triple bubble in stocks / bonds / residential housing, where current share valuations mirror those of the 1929 peak and the current threat is perhaps more ominous. Moreover, the risk of missing further gains in US equities pales in comparison with the potential risk of loss. Nick Barisheff questions how markets will respond amid bear market conditions, given the less than robust activity during the current bull market. In addition, the World Gold Council announced that gold production has peaked - mines can no longer produce enough output to increase the supply, but only add to dwindling stockpiles. Given the $260 trillion in global financial assets and that institutions own less than half a percent of PMs, investors less than 1 percent, potential gains in the comparably small $1 trillion PMs market could startle even the most ardent gold aficionado as investors, institutions, pension funds, hedge funds and even governments seek safe-haven assets.

Highlights

  • Andy Schectman of Miles Franklin Institute (28 year old firm with $6 billion in sales) rejoins the show.
  • He outlines ways to avoid the hurdles of purchasing / storing PMs.
  • His firm requires mandatory background checks and a large surety bond to protect clients from potential counterparty risk.
  • The Miles Franklin storage program involves Canadian Brinks security, without percentage of value fees, which shields clients from large price increases.
  • They offer a fully insured Brinks safety-deposit box in Vancouver and Toronto - clients hold the only key / spare with 24/7 access.
  • FedEx air delivery is also available (www.privatesafedepositboxes.net).
  • For extra security, Miles Franklin employees the same auditing firm as the StreetTracks GLD ETF.
  • While disseminating negative comments on silver, JP Morgan has accumulated more than 4 times the silver stockpile of the Hunt Brother's silver corner.
  • Commercial banks like Citibank and related firms have accumulated enormous hordes of gold, while US mint sales decline to record lows.
  • Key takeaway - the smart money continues to accumulate gold and silver, including China, Russia, most central banks and leading investment banks.
  • Andy Schectman has identified a potentially profitable market anomaly.
  • He makes a generous offer to swap gold bullion for BU Walking Liberties, a rare opportunity to stack ounces and numismatics, simultaneously.
  • Please call his brokers or Andy directly (brokers direct line 1-800-822-8080; Andy's mobile 1-612-290-2729).

Andy Schectman of Miles Franklin Institute (28 year old firm with $6 billion in precious metals sales) outlines how to overcome the hurdles associated with purchasing / storing PMs. His firm is one of the only in the industry to require mandatory background checks and a large surety bond to protect clients from potential counterparty risk. The Miles Franklin storage program involves Canadian Brinks security, with fixed storage fees, which shields clients from large price increases. Plus, in another first of its kind, they now offer a fully insured Brinks safety deposit box in Vancouver and Toronto; clients hold the only key / spare with access 24/7 and FedEx air delivery (www.privatesafedepositboxes.net). For extra security, Miles Franklin utilizes the same auditing firm as the StreetTracks GLD ETF. In similar fashion as Sun Tzu's teaching that all warfare is based on deception, JP Morgan has accumulated more than 4 times the silver stockpile of the infamous Hunt Brother's silver corner of 1980, while disseminating negative comments on silver. In addition, using the lull in PMs prices provided in part by investor's passion for US equities, commercial banks like Citibank have accumulated enormous hordes of gold, just as US mint sales decline to record lows. Key takeaway - the smart money continues to horde gold and silver, including China, Russia, most central banks and leading investment banks. It may be advisable to follow their lead. Due to market manipulation Andy Schectman has identified potentially profitable anomalies for investors, including swapping gold for equal dollar amounts of silver, which is relatively undervalued given the over 70:1 gold:silver ratio; swapping palladium for platinum may also be advisable. Miles Franklin makes the generous offer to Goldseek.com listener's / subscribers to swap their gold bullion for BU Walking Liberties representing a rare opportunity to stack ounces and numismatics, providing both gold and numismatic value and potentially favorable tax implications. Our guest supplies the following contact information: Miles Franklin brokers or Andy directly (broker's direct line 1-800-822-8080; Andy's mobile 1-612-290-2729).

Highlights

  • Chris Blasi, President of Neptune Global LLC makes his show debut.
  • In 2001 the precious metals sector entered a new secular bull market that could extend 20-25 years, unlike the decade long bull of the 1970's.
  • Via 1-2-3 wave analysis, the first wave completed in 2012 resulting in the 2nd cyclical-bear wave, paving the path for the 3rd most forceful bull advance.
  • Unlike the 1970's, economic conditions have deteriorated markedly with national debt recently topping $20 trillion.
  • The confluence of serious socioeconomic issues vastly increases the likelihood of stress on the domestic system, improving the odds of PMs profits.
  • The guest / host concur that PMs investments represent the ideal panacea to survive and thrive the imminent financial cataclysm.
  • Chris Blasi questions the soundness of national pension funds - investors are advised to make financial preparations, independent of entitlement programs.
  • His PMC ounce system is a precious metals diversified-portfolio that lessons volatility via weighted positions in silver, gold, platinum and palladium.
  • The blockchain revolution will continue to disrupt via decentralization, creating entirely unique industries by eliminating wasteful processes.
  • One particularly appealing aspect of the cryptocurrency market, the PTB find it challenging to manipulate the triple entry accounting system.
  • The duo caution investors over the notion of Bitcoin as digital gold.
  • Bitcoin represents the digital evolution of fiat money, constraining supply while returning monetary control to "We the people."

Chris Blasi, President of Neptune Global LLC makes his show debut. According to our guest, in 2001 the precious metals sector entered a new secular bull market that could extend 20-25 years, unlike the decade long gold-bull market of the 1970's. Case in point, via 1-2-3 wave analysis, the first wave completed in 2012 resulting in the 2nd cyclical bear wave that paved the path for the 3rd and most forceful advance of 2015, currently underway. Unlike the 1970's, economic conditions have deteriorated markedly; as national debt recently topped $20 trillion, entitlement programs continue to burst at the seems and intense cultural challenges threaten to topple the economy. Consequently, the confluence of serious socioeconomic issues vastly increases the likelihood of stress on the domestic system and by proxy increase the odds of gold and silver profits. The guest / host concur that PMs investments represent the ideal panacea to survive and thrive the imminent financial cataclysm, providing a mechanism to crystallize a lifetime of effort. Chris Blasi questions the soundness of national pension funds - investors are advised to make financial preparations, independent of entitlement programs, in case of default. His PMC ounce system, started in 2008 is a precious metals diversified portfolio with a weighted position in silver, gold, platinum and palladium, that oftentimes outperforms the individual markets by lessening volatility. One particularly appealing aspect of the cryptocurrency market - the PTB find it challenging to manipulate the triple entry accounting system underpinning the blockchain backbone. Although the blockchain revolution will continue to disrupt via decentralization, creating entirely unique industries by eliminating wasteful, outdated processes, recent breakthroughs in quantum computing enable agencies to decrypt virtually any transaction, reducing the appeal of formerly anonymous transactions. The duo caution investors to ignore the notion of Bitcoin as digital gold; Bitcoin and related tokens represent the digital evolution of fiat money, constraining supply and wrestling away control away from the elite, returning it to the rightful owners.

Highlights

  • In the aftermath of Tropical Storm Irma, the head of The Morgan Report, David Morgan rejoins the show running on generator power.
  • Our guest outlines his perspective on the silver / gold market as well as rare earths.
  • China has corned the rare earth market with a 90% share of the global output. Rare earths are essential to android / iPhones, electric cars.
  • David Morgan expects an explosive price advance in 2018.
  • Although silver is rare in the earth's crust, with a natural ratio of 9:1, silver to gold, the current price differential is near 70:1.
  • Due to silver's small market size and relative affordability, the precious metal could gain exceptional relative momentum once gold breaches $1,550.

In the aftermath of Tropical Storm Irma, the head of The Morgan Report, David Morgan rejoins the show running on generator power with his perspective on the silver / gold market as well as rare earths. China has corned the rare earth market with a 90% share of the global output. Rare earths are essential for advanced batteries in android / iPhones, electric cars and related electronics. Now that the PMs shares and silver have confirmed the positive technical momentum in the gold market, David Morgan expects an explosive price advance in 2018. Although silver is rare in the earth's crust, with a natural ratio of 9:1, silver to gold, the current price differential is near 70:1 suggesting a solid value opportunity for silver investors. Due to silver's small market size and relative affordability, the precious metal could gain exceptional relative momentum once gold breaches $1,550.

  • Bob Hoye reviews the PMs sector including gold, silver and shares, noting his expectations for increased demand for gold / silver late this year or early 2018.
  • The technical outlook for Bitcoin and related cryptocurrencies - cryptos have joined virtually all financial markets in a speculative financial bubble.
  • The universal mantra of central bankers, that credit expansion equals economic prosperity will end poorly for all but the elite.
  • Inflation was absorbed by residential house prices and financial assets, in particular share prices.

Reeling from Tropical Storm Irma, Bob Hoye of Institutional Advisors rejoins the show with an in impromptu discussion via only power from a rusty gas-powered generator. Bob Hoye reviews the PMs sector including gold, silver and shares, noting his expectations for increased demand for gold / silver late this year or early 2018, mostly in non-US dollar currencies. The technical position of Bitcoin and related cryptocurrencies - cryptos have joined virtually all financial markets in a speculative financial bubble of epic proportions. The universal mantra of central bankers, that credit expansion equals economic prosperity will end poorly for all but the elite. The inflation was absorbed by residential house prices and financial assets, in particular share prices.

Highlights

  • Dr. Stephen Leeb, best-selling author and head of The Complete Investor returns to the show with encouraging comments for PMs investors.
  • Although a reaction could unfold soon, Dr. Leeb views the gold market price activity as a potential "All-In" buy opportunity
  • Dr. Leeb identifies a seminal opportunity to improve US diplomacy with China, to regain trust in our reserve currency with our top trading partners.
  • The guest notes the preference for gold as a currency, not just an asset, by China's leading policymakers.
  • A key to China's dominance in the currencies of the future, i.e., gold and Bitcoin / altcoins / supercomputing, is their massive investment in hydroelectricity.
  • A dam reservoir is comparable to a solid investment portfolio - the initial investment is intense, but the security of free dividends / coupons is vital.
  • Just as the Chinese symbol for opportunity resembles danger, Jihuì/wéixian the Pentagon is advised to get out ahead of the crypto revolution.
  • Officials can secure a strategic economic / military advantage for decades.
  • Gold could be undervalued by several fold, given the proliferation of fiat money, in the coming years.
  • Dr. Leeb expects the yellow metal to eclipse the 2011 zenith.
Dr. Stephen Leeb, best selling author and head of The Complete Investor returns to the show with encouraging comments for PMs investors. Although a reaction could unfold soon, Dr. Leeb views the gold market price activity as a potential "All-In" opportunity, on the heels of news of a new gold backed, oil exchange in Shanghai. Dr. Leeb identifies a seminal opportunity to improve US diplomacy with China, to regain trust in our reserve currency with our top trading partners. The guest notes the preference for gold as a currency, not just an asset, by China's leading policymakers. A key to China's dominance in the currencies of the future, i.e., gold and Bitcoin / altcoins / supercomputing, is massive investment in hydroelectricity. - a well build dam reservoirs comparable to a solid investment portfolio - the initial investment is intense, but the security of free dividends / coupons is invaluable to the individual / society for decades to come. US policymakers are urged to emulate their model in hydroelectric / nuclear power, supercomputers / quantum computers as well as gold / Bitcoin reserve accumulation. Just as the Chinese symbol for opportunity resembles danger, Jihuì/wéixian the Pentagon is advised to get out ahead of the crypto revolution, to secure a strategic economic / military advantage for decades. In addition, gold could be undervalued by several fold, given the proliferation of fiat money, in the coming years Dr. Leeb expects the yellow metal to eclipse the 2011 zenith.

Bill Murphy of GATA.org returns with bullish commentary on the precious metals sector. Once silver closes above $21 an ounce, our guest expects the world's most conductive / reflective metal to launch into the stratosphere in similar fashion as Bitcoin Despite the intensive energy, computer and technical requirements of Bitcoin mining, extracting rare metals from ore is arguably more challenging. So what is holding silver price in check? According to GATA.org, major investment banks continue to suppress the market via various, unsound paper money schemes. The guest / host concur, silver may represent the most appealing value in the precious metals arena. Although the PMs shares continue to gain altitude, Bill Murphy views the lack of widespread enthusiasm as a solid sign that the uptrend could persist. The discussion includes escalating tensions between the West and N.K. - news of a successful thermonuclear underground test raised considerable red flags - hydrogen bombs use secondary explosives, resulting in nuclear fusion, the force of the sun and many magnitudes the destructive force of earlier, less lethal nuclear fission models. US officials have raised concerns that N.K. could combine new ICBM / fusion devices to delivery a destructive payload to the contiguous US. Still, few sources confirm this is currently a viable threat. In addition, the most powerful hurricane ever recorded made landfall in the Caribbean this week - some meteorologists fear that the 160-192 mph winds could result in unprecedented destruction to the Bahamas, ranging from South Florida, Miami up the Atlantic coast to South Carolina, conjuring images of the now infamous Hurricane Andrew and its destructive wake. Unlike the Houston based Hurricane Harvey where flooding was the chief concern, devastating gale force winds will pummel much of Florida if forecasts are correct. Florida residents are advised to make plans in advance to evacuate the coastal areas inland and if possible to find shelter in Georgia / Alabama, etc. until the storm passes (figure 1.1).

Alternative economist, John Williams of Shadowstats.com discusses the increase in volatility in the gold market, ahead of the annual Jackson Hole Wyoming, economic symposium. Our guest discounts the hawkish talk of policymakers, suggesting that the Fed could unleash a new round of quantitative easing (QE). In addition, the odds of a lower balance sheet are overstated amid increasing domestic / geopolitical tensions sending the gold price, skyward. The discussion steers to Hurricane Harvey in Houston, a similarly devastating storm as Katrina, which struck the Gulf 12 years ago to the day, resulting in a national tragedy still felt today. Officials fear rains will continue to pommel the Houston area as Harvey steers towards New Orleans (figure 1.1.). The economic ramifications could extend for years to come. The guest/host differ on US housing; John Williams expects housing to decline while the host notes the healthy, 45 degree ascent in the new housing starts index, arguably a key leading economic indicator. The world's top retailer, Amazon.com may soon have viable competition from the new partnership between Google / Wal-mart, which plan to start home delivery operations. The interview concludes with an engaging discussion on the Bitcoin / crypto markets - the market cap continues to soar, climbing from under $50 billion recently to over $164 billion. The question is raised: How do nearly endless supplies of fiat currencies survive following the introduction of Bitcoin, an instantaneous digital money with nearly zero transaction fees and a limited supply?

Arch Crawford, head of Crawford Perspectives, wraps up a discussion on Fox News with Neil Cavuto to shed some light on the total solar eclipse that covered much of the contiguous United States this week. Our guest notes the potential implications for the financial markets, which could prove to be the most significant since the eclipse during the signing of the Declaration of Independence. Arch finds scientific basis for much of the stress on society - tidal forces and solar flux impact the Northern Hemisphere at peak levels during the eclipse, causing intense ionization in the upper atmosphere, potentially impacting investor behavior. In addition, the US equities correction could persist into Sept. / Oct., resulting in 8% drawdowns. However, the gold market could stage a powerful advance - two consecutive daily closes above $1,300 is all that's required to make a gold bull out of Arch Crawford, who notes that once that level is past, "The sky is the limit."
