A2A with Greg Mannarino of TradersChoice.net


Today's A2A guest was Greg Mannarino. Greg's free website, https://traderschoice.net, is very popular with traders worldwide and his daily youtube updates are often a must-watch wrap up to the day's events.

I think you're really going to enjoy this podcast. Over the 40 minutes, Greg addresses a bunch of topics, including:

  • How will The Crimean Crisis ultimately affect global markets?
  • What factors does Greg assess when deciding which options to purchase?
  • Is there ever a time to short high-flying equities like TSLA or PCLN and what indicators would he use to make a decision?
  • Are the miners in the early stages of a rally?
  • What was his best and worst trade?

If you aren't familiar with Greg's work, I urge you to give this call a listen. You'll likely find yourself becoming an avid reader of his site in the future.

I hear you on 9/11, and reason somewhat similar. People get a little nervous sometimes when the obvious conflicts with the popular.

The Gold reserves... If they were looted, they were sold into the public demand to preserve the fiat system.

They think that all they need is the ability to control the public's perception (via media and owned politicians) that they (Central Banks) have gold. And for now, the people take the media stories and run with them.

But then, according to that thinking, maybe they actually just planted the "Gold is Gone" stories, for whatever twisted reason...

Occam's razor might suggest the gold reserves are intact. It's a different dynamic, as the twin towers had to actually be blown up. (couldn't false-flag media that one)

but along those lines, Why do you think the document showing the gold is there, is now be brought to light???

"Unless these guys are straight-up patsies deliberately telling lies under oath (a possibility, of course)"

A necessity, of course.

"I really REALLY want to believe that US reserves are intact"

Without getting into this stuff too much here, do you know that 9/11 was an inside job? I mean know?

I do, because I spent much of my early years observing how physical objects interact with each other when dropped, thrown, pushed, slided etc etc into each other. I learnt from what my eyes were seeing, not from what my mind was thinking. A great truth I later heard and know to be true, is that thought is the enemy of truth. Looking reveals the truth. Thought is dependent on the past, it's a regurgitation of glimpses of truth that are corrupted by endless thought, which leads to endless insecurity, which results in massive doubt and confusion. The realisation of the truth of anything is right here, now, in the present. Nothing to think about. The truth is static. Thought moves - hence the confusion.

So, having said that, about knowing that 9/11 was an inside job, there is no way in hell that the gold reserves - that are supposed to belong to all of the people - are intact. They will have been looted long ago by the same body/families of people that were involved in setting up the 9/11 attacks. The will have looted it all.

Well, not quite all. They want control of the entire earth. That's what all the wars are about.

And we're paying for it.

Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan,

SS121 From the Fekete site linked

The erosion of capital is vicious because it is well hidden and may become

obvious only when it is already too late to do anything about it. The process of

destruction of capital is a direct consequence of the falling interest rate structure.

Those who argue that low interest rates are salutary to business confuse a low but

stable interest rate structure with a falling one. The latter, to be sure, is lethal to


Keynes charged that businessmen behave irrationally and can go overboard

in their pessimistic appraisal of business prospects. He insisted that the cure is

serial cutting of the rate of interest by the central bank. Well, let us see how falling

interest rates really affect the thinking of businessmen. If you tell an entrepreneur


that tomorrow the rate of interest will be lower, then he will delay his investment

by one day. He does not want to face the competition of those with a lower cost of

capital, due to their foresight in waiting one day longer to get a business loan. By

the same token, if you tell him that a week, month, year … from now thr rate of

interest will be lower, then he will delay his investment by one week, month, year,

… If he expects the rate of interest to keep falling from here to eternity, then he

will never make the proposed investment. It is just as simple as that: you will never

be able to entice rational businessmen with a falling interest rate structure to invest.

On the contrary, what you have to do is to convince them that you mean to

stabilize interest rates. Only in such an environment would they start nibbling at

investment possibilities. Now we come to the crux of the matter. The only known

way to stabilize interest rates durably is to go on a gold standard. The gold

standard is the best course to prevent wholesale capital destruction. It is the only

monetary system that can stabilize bond prices. It is a malicious lie that the gold

standard is ‘contractionist’, as asserted by Keynes.

Thought from the past-- Safety Dan

Nice post, the US military still has the best and biggest toys on the block. For people unfamiliar with Janes is would give that a read https://www.janes.com

I have this sense that factions of the US Gov't have been on a big scavenger hunt(Gadafi) for the last few years as someone probably was paying attention to JR.

Rule of law, respect for the individual, honest money, what is there not to love about the USA. Corruption, paper promises, police state, I think I will pass.

Time will tell which way the republic goes, I which one I am rooting for

Thoughts From The Past...

I believe that the elite know gold is money and power... Does any one remember that the Jim Rickards was instrumental in the DoD's "financial war games" back in 2009? Would he not of seen the "gold" issue back then? He has been one of the first to encourage countries (Germany) to ask for their gold back. I believe they would have also played the "Putin" game. I've watched how powerful the war machine really is, firsthand. Others on this site will also verify our war machine is "world class".

Previously I had posted (at this link AM & Belangp Enjoyed Your Discussion) about the US "recovering" 300 tons of Au from another site in the Philippines as posted in the Washington Post in 2003. This wasn't the first time I had observed US recovery of Au from the Philippines. I'm half Filipino and live in the Baguio area. Read about it in the link.

One of my business partners is a past London Metals verifier. He traveled the world verifying gold, (including WWII Au), from Europe, Asia and other locations for private and public enmities. Changing the Au bar make up contents was common, to help confuse mining location of the Au. However, sometimes the bars "new" identification was not "blended" well or they left in other materials that traced mining. Refineries can tell you more about that process.

Could it be possible the US has "switched"?

... 2... 1... LOL, Yes ag1969,

that was an excellent article!

And the current level of 'Silver is NOT Money' trolling on main street, is to me another indication that we're getting 'close'.

(But as painful as it must be for those that go back and forth with the troll(s)... all things work to the good for Silver as all the heated conversation keeps "Silver" as the subject.)


From the Hugo Salinas Price article...

HSP: "The Bitcoin is simply a childish distraction for a childlike world population incapable of discerning falsity, much to the satisfaction of all the crooks, big and small, who prosper by scamming the public."

That's got to be the most succinct and accurate Bitcoin summation yet.

The "Silver is NOT Money" trolls are one thing... trolls. But sadly, a lot of good people are caught up in this Bitcoin thing. As it was intended to do yes, but still sad.

There is a certain personality type, can't remember which one at the moment, but those folks are very logical, scientific, 'engineer type' thinkers. They aren't quick to accept anything, but once they do accept something... Holy Canola!! They will almost NEVER go back and re-evaluate based on new information.

I see a couple of these on main st. who jumped onto Bitcoin for the technologically advanced and external to the crooked system propaganda with which it was sold. I just hope they don't trade all their stack for Bitcoins and in the end it won't matter anyway. There won't be any 'i told you so's from here to any current Bitcoin followers. They're probably more patriotic/ better neighbors etc than i'll ever be. ( But as for the Silver is Not Money trolls,... they'll be gone.)

HSP: "Money – authentic money – must be the most marketable of all commodities. This is why gold is money! See here. Silver follows in second place."

Throughout ancient Monetary History, Silver is actually the King of Money, whereas Gold is the more beautiful and Gracious Queen. (So, Gold first and Silver second? Only in the context of chivalry, and then 'yes', by all means.)

In the oldest translated texts, "Silver" is "Money", etymologically speaking as well. Of course, in our current "Up is Down" and "Down is Up" Bizarro financial world, the perception of Silver has been portrayed as greatly inferior to Gold. But when it's time for the 'system' to feel some real Monetary pressure, it will be coming from King Silver.

In fact, regarding King Silver and Queen Gold, tptb in installing their World Fiat Currency System in place of Real Money, actually weasled into the Monetary position of Silver. They left Gold in place to monetarily validate their system by association, and King Silver was banished all together. Replaced (temporarily) by the fiat stuff, or as Kudlow likes to proclaim, "King Dollar!!"

But yes indeed, that was an excellent article, and you (ag1969) just had to go and make me late for dinner!!

H/T to HSP! He's hard core reality!
