Thursday (Friday) Conversation - David Jensen


The #SilverSqueeze movement has been rolling for a couple of weeks now and it has certainly been interesting to watch. However, for it to have a long-term impact, we must continue to draw physical metal away from the Bullion Banks and force a de-leveraging of the fractional reserve pricing scheme.

It is in understanding this that I reached out to David Jensen this week. You'll recall that David is an expert precious metals analyst and that he played a vital role in documenting and explaining the #PalladiumSqueeze" of 2016-2020.

So let's bring this full circle. Can silver ultimately be squeezed in the same manner as palladium? Recall palladium saw its price move up 5X as The Banks were forced to unwind leveraged short positions and source actual, physical metal, instead.

If this were to happen in the weeks and months ahead, what would be the signs and signals to look for? For that answer, we turn to David. Please be sure to give this podcast a thorough listen and note the chart below when he mentions it in the second half of the podcast.

Thanks for listening and sharing.

For the record, and for anyone who gives a damn;

I don't doubt cyrptos. I simply don't care.

If I were into cryptos, I would certainly frequent a "reputable" crypto web site.

As it is; however, I frequent a reputable precious metals web site, which is unfortunately tainted by too much crypto-babble.

By all means, crypto people....buy, sell, whatever floats yer boats, but why not pump yer cryptos where you will get more bang for your babble?

I was pleasantly surprised to see a post by the head crypto pumper the other night, which informed us "metal-heads" that miners have started selling silver to mints. A very important piece of news, very much appreciated. This is why I do not mute posters, but surely wish they would limit their exuberation to the topic of this site: precious metals.

TEOTGKE can end by any number of influences, and of all those myriads of influences, ONLY precious metals is what I PAY FOR. All others can be examined as and when I choose, at any time I choose, at no cost to me, at a myriad of web sites.

Timely & packed w/ silver nuggets of info...

This has to be one of my personal favorite interviews of 2021.

David is always just freaking NAILS on this stuff.

Suggested Arcadia Economics get David on as I saw parallels to Palladium run up in Silver now.

Craig beat him to the punch and I was not disappointed! Powerful interview loaded with Silver nuggets of info!

One thousand thumbs up!

Kudos Craig!

I'm a dinosaur

I have always been sceptical of Crypto for maybe a dumb reasons. I have always believed that when the end comes, how can you retrieve the value. What will the value be in? SDR? USD? Yuan? I also believe that when the end comes, the internet will be shut down or at least specific sites / countries.

If all are encrypted, how can a heir get release of the value? Us dinosaurs need to think of such things.

I am now crypto overexposed...

1 Link will now buy you an ASE. Last year, it would have taken almost 10.

AIJ had it right all along. Hop on the crypto train, turn your profits into phyz. So easy.

Once you have the phyz in your hot little hands, almost literally zero risk of "losing it all". Crypto is on FIRE right now, time to make some fiat and change it into phyz.

Offer this for free to the Wallstreetsilver crowd

This is good. You should consider offering this for the Wallstreetsilver crowd. They are supportive of the movement but do not have access to a lot of information. This can help them and us big time

ETH takes 1 oz gold

I get the frustration of the crypto doubters. I used to be one. But I remember when 1 BTC overtook 1 oz of gold then 25x'd it. Last year I predicted I ETH would do the same at some point soon. It just has taken 1 oz of gold and I see no reason why it won't now 10x 1 oz of gold.

I just got a few more ETH. Now I am done with crypto and will start easing profits back into phys Ag/Au - my main passion.

feels good to win one for a

feels good to win one for a change.

I'll never forget sitting at the Greenbrier Resort in April 2011 and watching it all fade away on a Sunday night while the world celebrated the end of osama. After a few months of that action, I couldn't afford to stay in a brier patch...

"A joke for your Friday night, it really wasn't that bad..."

I see you like TEZOS. I do too and have owned since the ICO. Of course, I should have just kept my 1 BTC but it is easy in hindsight. TEZOS still owns a %^&*load of BTC from the ICO. As well as making advances in their own right, I think they are underappreciated as a BTC play.

MSTR is now essentially a BTC fund with a bit of other value. I think TEZ will be the same.

I bought my first LINK a year ago yesterday

and I kept buying it like it was my job all year long because I had a feelin'....

I have some enthusiasm for LINK, that is fasho.

Feb 12, 2021 - 8:12pm

I took a small position in

I took a small position in Link last week at 25, so I feel your enthusiasm.

However, my bucket of xlm I bought at 0.04 and my peck of tezos I bought at 2.00 make me smile too.

The shiny in the safe just sits there being shiny too.
