Thursday Conversation - James Turk

68

It has been a long time since we've caught up with Mr. Turk....way too long, as a matter of fact. But we correct that issue today with this podcast that contains all sorts of valuable information.

James is currently stuck in London but this has given his first-hand perspective on the current troubles of the LBMA, the CME and their global gold market. Among the items discussed in this podcast:

  • Issues facing The Banks as the year began
  • What took place as spreads blew out on March 24
  • Ongoing signs of physical stress in London
  • The significance of bullion banks quitting the LBMA
  • Why/how the GLD utilizes Bank of England gold for its "inventory"
  • And much, much more.

Many thanks to James for his time today and we promise to have him back on again soon. In the meantime, please be sure to follow James on Twitter @FGMR and you should always try to keep GoldMoney in mind whenever you are in the market for bullion: https://www.goldmoney.com

Jr Miners are still underperforming

As evidence via GDXJ.

Anyone shorting mining stocks will have a religous experience.

Onegold

Nice to see where the onegold account in silver is up 15 percent over purchase price. Not worried about APMEX premia, can do better at the LCS, where they've been selling constitutional silver at 13x

McHugh last nite

" Gold rose sharply Thursday, and finally broke out higher from its sideways triangle pattern, as expected. Silver also broke out higher from its sideways pattern. Triangles are continuation patterns, meaning the direction of prices headed into the pattern will be the direction they leave the pattern, in present case, that would be up. Gold has formed an inverse Head & Shoulders bottom pattern with an upside price target about 200 points higher than they closed at Thursday. See chart on page 46. "

Nice start to the day

Spike at 7:00 CT.

Comex silver opens in 11 minutes. Again, if we can somehow hold above $16.50 through the close....

you should get some

All it usually takes is one ounce. Hold it in your hand. Feel the weight and density. And you'll want more.

Charles De Gaulle

I was a young man, 25 at the time, when I heard de Gaulle's speech about gold and how the US was handing out IOUs for real things produced by foreigners using real capital. Then ALL the papers in the UK demonized him and at the time I believed them. A couple of decades later I thought about it differently and went over to converting all excess savings to gold coins.

Here de Gaulle's speach....
