A Discussion with Eric Sprott


Back on Thursday, as part of our weekly webinar series, it was a distinct pleasure and honor to welcome Eric Sprott to Turdville.

In this wide-ranging, 47-minute discussion, Eric offers his comments and analysis on:

  • Chinese gold demand and the continuing drawdown of the GLD.
  • Market conditions needed to facilitate an expansion of the PHYS and/or PSLV.
  • The mining stocks. Eric also offers his key metrics for evaluating miners that can make it through this current downturn.
  • What mistakes we've made over the past three years and how to prepare for the future.
  • The ongoing deviation of the gold:silver from historical norms.

And much, much more!

Again, weekly discussions such as this one are all part of what subscribers find valuable within Turd's Vault. More information and subscription information can be found here: https://www.tfmetalsreport.com/subscribe

Obama appoints his political hack friend to be the "Ebola czar"


This insider lawyer has ZERO medical experience:

Chairman of staff to both VPs, Gore and Biden. Hey great news - he signed off on the loans to Solyndra - $1/2 billion - the defunct solar experiment.

Can someone please explain to me the difference between Bush's appointment of Michael Brown - the Arabian Horse lawyer - to oversee hurricane Katrina and Obama's appointment of this lawyer with no medical experience to oversee Ebola?

Red team yay - blue team yay!!!!!

We are so effed - keep stacking

Wealth Inequality Is Not A Problem, It’s A Symptom

Wealth Inequality Is Not A Problem, It’s A Symptom

Submitted by Tyler Durden on 10/18/2014 - 22:14

If someone would suggest today to break up the USA, because its present status contradicts that which the Founding Fathers had in mind (and there are plenty of arguments to be made that such contradictions exist in plain view), (s)he would not even be sent to a nuthouse, because no-one would take him/her serious enough to do so. But wealth inequality still rises rapidly within America, and it doesn’t serve the people. So why does it happen, and why do we let it? Because the inequality that matters most is not wealth, but power. And we’ve been made to believe that we still have that power, but we don’t. Voting in elections has the same function today as singing around a Christmas tree: everyone feels a strong emotional connection, but it’s all just become one giant TV commercial...

since this thread is ... a bit old.

I'll post this link here.


I hope you see the same ads that I do while watching it. I only post this so people realize the humanity they have already given up.

Sprott nuggets. Very tasty.

What a great interview. Worth listening to a few times. He has given me a few angles I've not fully considered before, but I guess that's why he is Eric Sprott the millionaire and I am erewenguy the not so much.

Indian Exchanges to extend Gold ETF trading session

After the regular market hours from 9:00 AM to 3:40 PM, trading in gold ETFs will resume at 4:30 PM on October 21 and continue till 7 PM, the exchanges said.

MUMBAI: Top stock exchanges National Stock Exchange of India (NSE) and Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) have decided to extend the trading session for Gold Exchange Traded Funds on Tuesday till 7 PM on account of Dhanteras - a day considered auspicious for buying gold.

Besides, both the bourses have decided to waive off the transactions charges for all trades in gold ETF securities on that day.

In separate notices, NSE and BSE said that they would conduct "an extended live trading session on Tuesday, October 21, 2014" in Gold ETF securities "on the auspicious occasion of Dhanteras".

After the regular market hours from 9:00 AM to 3:40 PM, trading in gold ETFs will resume at 4:30 PM on October 21 and continue till 7 PM, the exchanges said.

It is considered auspicious to buy valuables like gold on occasions like Dhanteras, Diwali and Akshay Tritiya in India.

Returns from Gold ETFs are linked to the domestic price of physical gold but spare the investors from the trouble of buying and keeping the yellow metal in physical form.

Gold ETF of -- Axis Mutual Fund, Birla Sun Life Mutual Fund, Goldman Sachs Mutual Fund, HDFC Mutual Fund, ICICI Prudential Mutual Fund, IDBI Mutual Fund and Kotak Mutual Fund -- are some of the securities that would be available for trading on Tuesday.

BSE and NSE have informed their members that all unmatched pending orders of Gold ETF securities at 3:30 PM would be cancelled and not carried forward to the extended trading session.

"Members would remain logged in to the trading system after the end of post closing session at 4:00 pm and would no need to log in again for the extended trading session at 4:30 pm," BSE said in its notice.

"All trades done on Tuesday, October 21, 2014 during the normal as well as extended trading sessions would be merged and settled on October 27, 2014 as per existing settlement schedule," it added.
