A2A with John Butler of Amphora Capital


Earlier today, we held our final A2A webinar of the year and we couldn't have had a better and more timely guest than John Butler, author of the great book, "The Golden Revolution".

In this tremendous, 45-minute presentation, John addresses a multitude of subjects, including:

  • The possibility of a gold-backed Russian government bond, which would provide stability for the rouble
  • What China might be planing to do with their gold reserves and the upcoming IMF meeting next autumn
  • The meaning of today's announcement by the SNB to begin charging negative interest to depositors
  • The growing list of gold repatriation requests from around the globe

Many other subjects are covered as well so please be sure to listen to the entire recording. When you're done, check out John's latest Amphora Report entitled "AS THE ‘SANCTIONS WAR’ HEATS UP, WILL PUTIN PLAY HIS ‘GOLD CARD’?"(https://www.atomcapital.co.uk/wp-content/files_mf/1416418354AR_1114.pdf). You should then join John's mailing list so that you're notified whenever he publishes something new.

Lastly, if you haven't yet read "The Golden Revolution", I strongly suggest you order it today by clicking the link below. It is as powerful and relevant today as it was when it was published in 2012. You won't be disappointed.

What's so wonderful about

What's so wonderful about "the system" is that some people will never escape the programming. If you remember, some people at the end of "the Matrix" decided to stay.

Between that and the Oil-Gold ratio getting so out of whack we can either conclude...

Oil and Platinum are absurdly undervalued right now...


I don't think I need to even say it.

While I hope it's option 1 more and more option 2 seems likely and while we all know it's BS it is what these "markets" say it is...

you got that right amigo

That programming is big medicine

on a long enough timeline the survival rate for everyone drops to zero

Agent Smith: You hear that Mr. Anderson?... That is the sound of inevitability... It is the sound of your death

Or, Oil and Platinum are telling us that their future industrial use is shot to hell....as in any modern day great depression resulting from a stock market and bond market collapse.

Heads Up !!!

Great A2A Turd. Thank you.

I thought that..

Butler's gold bond idea for Russia was brilliant. It prevents a run on their gold and with a high rate of interest very much encourages international investors to move in.

The issue is, as he eluded to, that people have to have the confidence that Russia will not default on their gold bond obligations and at this stage of the game I think that's unlikely with how hard the Western media pounds Russia for being so corrupt.

I do think however, as he also mentioned, the BRICS coming together and doing something similar would work. However, based on Putin's speech last night, that isn't happening any time soon... they are playing the waiting game and are not yet ready to do whatever it is they are going to do.

Flatline against 1200 again tonight

Would you look at the ridiculousness of that capping tonight? Aligning now with the previous nights on either side of the Globex session close. It's practically a hand drawn straight line. I mean honestly, what trades like that? You think maybe 1200 is currently significant at all? Sheesh.

As always Turd, excellent, excellent A2A today. With all the pervasive gibberish and dishonesty that passes as MSM news, I don't know what I'd do without the probity of this place.
