A2A with Jim Comiskey

105

Legendary commodity broker Jim Comiskey joined us today for the first A2A of the new year.

In this 45-minute call, Jim addresses:

  • the current, historic move in crude oil
  • falling natural gas prices
  • how he's consistently profiting trading currencies
  • why he prefers futures options to futures
  • the outlook for the dollar, the euro and ECBQE
  • and much, much more...

I think you'll find this discussion very helpful and a great start to the 2015 A2A season.

Get your daily Bill Holter fix

"I call a FULL ALERT because control has and is being lost. There are no more “bazookas” left as Hank Paulson called it. There are not even any bullets left! Can they sweep it under the rug again as they have done for so many years? I believe no, there are no more “can kicks”. I don’t believe the ability exists because there are so many markets and asset classes going “in the wrong direction” in violent moves. Even gold, THE most sacrosanct market to the total “rig” has been quietly going higher throughout all of this."

Great A2A, thanks Turd/Jim!

Jim sits deep inside the machine and candidly calls it like he sees it.

He doesn't have to stammer around and make sure his answers fit his handlers script. nor does he tip-toe past questions just to get to his talking points. He'll dig as deep as you want to go.

and he's a stacker!

(and our man Turd here has turned into quite an excellent interviewer, imo)

i'm not into trading paper, but that doesn't matter. that was still great information in that it was HONEST and from an informed, knowledgeable person telling us what he knows, not what he's heard.

Thanks again gents!

This guy has never been the same

Since he got out of the clink.

https://armstrongeconomics.com/2015/01/08/are-we-headed-into-fascism/

He was imprisoned for many years on trumped up charges, and he is asking if we are heading toward fascism?

I take his shit with a grain now.
