For your listening pleasure and to pass the time while we watch miners show a bit of strength this morning.

A conversation between two weary metals investors, Pining for the Fiords and Dr. Jerome:

Super - Thanks DrJ

If it's about miners, I'm liking.

Jun 22, 2017 - 11:23am

No cryptos

Not miners much, per se, Buck, but we stayed away from that there crypto talk.

Pining shared his trading rules too!

That was no less than a 5 beer, sorry 5 star, chat. Very enjoyable!

The End of Manipulation

Ted Butler tells how to end the obvious rigging of the silver market by having the enforcement division of the CFTC not allow the banks to add any additional shorts.

The Hunt brothers corner of the silver market, where they controlled 1/6 the amount of silver as J P Morgan, was ended by prohibiting any buying. That worked and bankrupted the Hunts.

So not allowing any new shorts would end the manipulation.

Will it happen?

Somewhere, over the rainbow, blue birds fly.

Thanks guys

It was a nice change of pace. Good job.

Dr Jerome

What are you a doctor of?

Yes, this is a two-drink podcast!

Thanks, fellas- we had fun doing it! Next time we will record later in the day so the hosts can have a cocktail... poor planning on my part. For those that might have time to listen this evening, topics include:

Trading metals, a few rules of survival

Prepping and the 'big picture'

Family and TEOTGKE

TFMR and the community of Turdites

So miners strongly strong

but gold itself up 12 cents.. Just like the old days when miners led the actual metals. I'll take a revisit.

@Pining 4 the Fjords

You had me at "two-drink" . . .

Seriously, that was an excellent podcast and definitely worth everyone's time to listen -- then think about for the next few days. When new ideas/perspectives are absorbed, they often need to "cure" for a few days to reach full effect. Tomorrow, I'll re-listen to glean more wisdom at the feet of the masters . . .

I haven't been a Turdvillian (?) long enough to vouch for Craig's integrity when faced with choices that might benefit him personally, at Turdville's expense, so I'll take your word for it. I do observe a guy who's thoughtful, intelligent, passionate, humorous (not a bad trait to have, these days!), observant, and always entertaining. The combination of Craig, and the TF community, has seen me through some pretty dark days, investing wise, although I feel the worst is yet to come. I feel very fortunate to have found fellow travelers along this very long and winding road . . .

Kudos to you and Dr. Jerome!
