Four Bits of Free Audio

Fri, Apr 24, 2020 - 10:12am

For your weekend listening pleasure, here is a collection of our interviews this week where we discuss QE∞, the ongoing rally in gold and the latest surge in the mining shares.

These were recorded during the second half of the week so the information is still timely.

Thanks for listening!

Hat Tip the "freebies"! ;-)

The Sprotts usually pop up elsewhere, but the others fly under my radar...

Thanks moosebuster1

I just presumed it was spot as it is usually within a few cents of my chart.

Definitely acting strange today though.

Out of debt & thankful

For the first time in over 30 years, my wife and I are out of debt to the banksters. I've got a normal job teaching at a state college which provides enough to survive, but not prosper. My wife runs three interrelated small businesses (real estate) for which I am the unpaid maintenance man /construction supervisor/ labor force. After selling two of our properties, we paid off all bank loans in January, tripled our PM holdings, then we watched the financial crash with popcorn in hand and cash in the bank.

It feels so damn good to be free of financial obligations to others. Our home is paid off (though still being renovated). Kids are out of college (college loans paid off) and getting along on their own two feet. We drive older cars. Not a penny goes to bankers out of our monthly budget.

Credit should go where credit is due. First I thank God for helping giving me a financial education, and then for dragging me by the nose into PMs and into this website and its vociferous radicals. Here my education and awareness has been sharpened to the point of seeing this recession come from a long way away (exceptin' for the virus), with time enough to get some renovations completed and properties on the market.

I am still not a good trader--don't make much fiat, but don't lose anymore. Still, I keep trying. But I sure like being able to take the 2K interest that was going to bankers pockets in 2019 and invest it in our own home & support charities that I like.

Even on gold-bashing mornings like this, I can keep my spirits up knowing that hard assets are a haven in a hurricane.

Did this morning's smackdown just seem lame about now. We have regained 50%. I wonder if it is a washout prior to a step up to the next level.

wierd quotes

The quotes i am getting for spot gold on my trading account are way off and varying anywhere from $1 to $20 below what is being quoted on Bloomberg. Each move down the price discrepancy expands then closes on each rally.

This is exactly what was happening a couple of weeks ago when we had the EFP issue but this time it seems more exaggerated.

Be alert! The world needs lerts.
