On Again With Greg Hunter

This was recorded late yesterday afternoon.

Wed, Aug 12, 2020 - 9:44am

Late yesterday, following the massive smash in the precious metals, was a terrific time to visit again with Greg Hunter of USA Watchdog.

I was on with Greg back in early July and we discussed the Comex delivery stress and how this is likely to impact JPM's ability to manage the price of silver going forward. We discussed my forecast of a "strong July" and then watched as July and early August saw massive upward price moves.

Greg contacted me again last Thursday and we scheduled this follow-up interview for late yesterday. At the time, Comex gold was near $2100 and Comex silver was pushing $30. Little did we know that, by the time we made it to Tuesday, prices would be smashed nearly 15% lower.

So the timing was perfect and it was a great opportunity to remind his audience of the UNCHANGED fundamentals. It was also a good day to inform them of the pending policy change announcements from The Fed that have been repeatedly floated over the past few weeks.

Again, much of what was discussed is material we already cover on a daily basis here at TFMR. But you might enjoy it, regardless....and you might consider sending this free public video to someone you know who is just now waking up to the economic realities of The End of The Great Keynesian Experiment.

Revising fed policy

I’m new to this Forum today, and I have a question whether a new strategy from the Fed as described would perhaps come after the election, as this would be a kind of writing on the wall that investors should get out of bonds and fly into precious metals. It might also send money from stocks to PM. It seems to me that the Fed and treasury work close together and a change of policy wouldn't be something the present administration would be most happy about towards a possible reelection? Wouldn't that create some financial waves ahead of Election Day? I expect some change like that would come after the election once status quo is possibly maintained? Or with Democrats at the helm.

Where to buy?

Here's a couple price aggregator web sites I check, they do the searching, you find what you want at the lowest price at "reputable" (YMMV) dealers...

Happy Birthday, Doc

The best to you and yours.

And, by the way, your periodic articles are not just posts- they're literature.

Markets just closed...

... and metals pushed back down, significantly--on a normal day. Looks like the monkeys will try to hold the line somewhere here.

Online gold purchases

Unless things have changed I think APMEX is the only major US online supplier that ships to Canada (and other international locations).

There is a large online supplier in Calgary, Alberta that supplies both Canadian and US markets from silvergoldbull.ca(.com). I use them for the UK mint silver lunar coins, which my LCS does not stock.

Yesterday's Smash

There was very little change on the COMEX, apart from price. At the close there were 553,325 open contracts up only 2,327. Dec gold was up 3,249 contracts.

So the contracts changed hands but there was not a particularly noticeable increase in the total. The COT on Friday should be very revealing since it records the data as of Tuesday close.

It reminded me of those two days in April 2013 when gold crashed around $200 through $1,500 after the 3 CEO's of the major banks met with Obama. This time is different. Instead of taking years and years to recover, gold crawled up off the mat last night.

How to Obtain Metals

Thought I might post a list for any Newbies that might be reading this free thread.

For in your possession physical metals try sites like jmbullion.com and apmex.com

For an easy to use stored by someone else type site I use onegold.com

Everyone should have some insurance (gold and silver) in their possession. Please feel free to add your favorite sites for the future Turdites.
