Thursday Conversation - Mickey Fulp

The Mercenary Geologist

As we continue our early year focus upon the mining shares, Mickey Fulp (The Mercenary Geologist) stops by today to provide his thoughts on the mining sector as whole...and not just precious metals but base metals, too.

If you're not familiar with Mickey, you should get to know him. He has decades of experience in the mining sector and his newsletter is available to you free of charge. All you have to do is register your name and email address at his site and the information will begin flowing to your inbox. As you know, the more sources of quality information you have, the more likely you'll have investing success. Therefore, I strongly urge you to check out Mickey's site: https://goldgeologist.com/index.html

What's fun is that Mickey is not primarily focused upon the precious metals. Instead, his research and recommendations often include base and industrial metals, too. So, for this call, we not only discuss gold and silver, we also cover uranium, copper and other strategic opportunities.

Many thanks to Mickey for so generously sharing his time today. I think you'll find this podcast to be helpful and informative.

When it comes to Bitcoin, I appreciate facts, arguments........not so much.

And, I have noticed that no one makes me read any comment.

Why Not Use The Forums?

For the crypto commentary so it will be readily available for anyone who wants it without scrolling through all the main page comments and metals related stuff?

I'll just add

I don't mind some BTC commentary. As Oskar states, it's fun to watch.

However, even I get a little tired of it sometimes so let's always keep the focus on the PMs with a little BTC thrown in from time to time.

Good thread from RP

about interest rate and gold

Macro Update:

With lockdowns spreading across the world again, just keep your eye on 2 yr bond yields. The cliff is at 10bps, if it breaks, next stop zero or negative. pic.twitter.com/XavNO1Uyx7

Afraid not pal. NoMas's

Afraid not pal. NoMas's comment was stupid and asinine. His complaint is utterly nonsensical. After all, TF could simply not allow comments. And we would still be paying him for his analysis, right? No one here is under any obligation to provide information for anyone. You don't like it? Skip the comments! Just read TF's stuff. The complaint makes no sense whatsoever and I'm sick of this stupid recurring argument.

Rickshaw, silverseeker, AIJ, et. al., thanks for your intelligent observations.

And furthermore, it is perfectly relevant to why we're all here anyway. I have some extra cash. Debating whether to buy gold, silver, miners, options, cryptos....

Dude. You pay for TF's

Dude. You pay for TF's commentary and analysis. He provides it. You don't pay the commenteriat here to provide you with information. As such, no one gives a shit what YOU want everyone to talk about.

RE: Options
