Thursday (Friday) Conversation - David Jensen

88

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.

silver/gold performance

With the better performance of silver lately I get the feeling gold holdings are liquidated in order to cover for the silver losses...Would this be likely? Any thoughts?

Re:the frustration

The frustration I hear in the comments the last few days reminds me of the scene in The Big Short when the MBS's are obviously losing value, but the banks are refusing to mark them to market, so the main characters, including Michael Burry and a couple of little guys working out of their house, who got the banks to write up the mbs options, who should be making a killing, are actually having to pay up on their premiums and they are l o s I n g t h e I r. M I n d s....They know the fraud is in their face and there is nothing they can do but sit tight and wait it out till the whole thing blows up and they can't hide it anymore.

Sit tight, and wait it out.

Thank you Dave Jensen!

Craig; fantastic interview... David echoes the sentiments we have been voicing here; as our anger/frustrations have reached the breaking point. Get Real, take the metal... the MOST difficult step is simply sustaining this pressure over the next couple months to reveal and break the paper sham.
Once mints and refiners see sustained monetary demand; they'll be begin dealing at physical market pricing; making the futures exchange paper pricing completely inadequate to serve as a legit delivery linked hedging venue for producers. 'Stake holders'; ie: real world investors, whom want the real metal will dictate an equilibrium price; not banksters distorting the market with infinite Casino paper metal.

Critical use industries will have to engage the miners and refiners to negotiate legit supply contracts as now exist in Palladium... with surrender fees; etc. We know how it is supposed to work; it just has not worked in metals for a long time!
