Thursday Conversation - Dave Kranzler


In this unprecedented and volatile time, it's difficult to have a dispassionate and rational discussion regarding the markets. So if you're looking for one...THIS ISN'T IT!

Actually, I'm only kidding. This podcast, recorded just a few hours ago, should prove to be an excellent use of your time. Over the course of a half hour or so, Dave and I discuss:

  • the mining shares and precious metals...and what the ferocity of the selloff is indicating
  • the potential size and scope of this worsening global financial crisis
  • how the global central banks will respond
  • the recent history of precious metal and mining share outperformance once the immediate crisis passes and rational thought returns

We tried to keep this brief so that the length of the podcast wouldn't dissuade anyone from listening. And though this is a very serious subject, Dave and I were able to find a few of the laughs that usually pervade our discussions. So, please try to give this podcast a thorough listen when you can spare the time.

I think we all feel your suffering and can relate to at least a bit of it, as we each see our own worlds become interrupted. These are the times that try men's souls.

Stay brave in the face of it all!

Mavens You have many friends on this site. We all feel

what you are going through. Know that we love you and all your family, have you in our hearts and hear what you are saying. So many of us are experiencing the same feelings and anxieties. When you feel like crap please remember that we have your back even if it's the emotional support that you know we have for you. Your rant is a cry from the heart. We hear you!!

Take care, best safe and love your family as we love you

Coin premiums

No doubt the dealer bought back when prices were higher, like last week, and now needs to recover the price.

Even places like First Majestic which sell their own ingots (like the one in my avatar) rounds and medallions are charging quite a premium vs. spot.

Update on premiums for physical

Wow. I just checked silver rounds on SDBullion (again, I like these guys, not picking on them). Premiums are DOUBLE what they were a few weeks ago. Have not seen premiums this high in at least 5 years. Looking at about $2 over spot for small quantities. WOW. This would have been $0.89 a few weeks ago.

So, I picked the wrong commodity....

Thought Gold would be what everyone wanted.

Turns out it's toilet paper.
