A2A with Chris Martenson of PeakProsperity.com


The perfect A2A guest at the perfect time. Earlier today, Chris Martenson stopped by for a frank discussion of current events including Ukraine Crisis, ECBQE and global gold demand.

This was an extraordinarily good A2A. Chris is as smart as they come and the reasoned opinion and analysis he offers at his site, PeakProsperity.com is second to none. It was an honor to have him back in Turdville and the timing of his visit could not have been better.

Please take the time to give this podcast a thorough listen. You'll be glad you did.

Re the margin hike...

Last week, the silver CoT showed a Large Spec NET long ratio of 3.9:1. I mentioned back on Friday that this is almost always a big flashing red signal and...not surprisingly...it was. The margin hike will also serve to drive any late-coming spec longs back out of silver, if there are any left after today.

Beyond that, rates were already very low after having been lowered so many times last year so today's hike isn't a very big deal. I mentioned in the previous thread that I would expect (hope) for an opportunity to stack/buy near $16.65. That's the old resistance. Some might even see a neckline of a broad, reverse H&S bottom.

Quick question

Why is it always 'Ukraine Crisis', and not 'THE Ukraine crisis'? :)

But seriously, why?

RE: Margin Hike

in thinking about this, isn't this kind of "good" in the long run? I mean, if this market is driven only by speculation/speculators, thereby causing these volatile moves up/down (mostly down I realize), then wouldn't putting margin at 100% actually be ideal for "phyzz" stackers? Then only those wanting real metal would even be in this stupid market. Of course, they couldn't then naked short this either.

I guess hurts a lot when it happens, and no-doubt "insiders" were tipped, as it drives specs out of the market en-mass causing a waterfall, and not that I think CME is doing us any favors, but higher margins are actually longer-term better for us. Or am I reading this backwards.

See I'm Still a Winner, Fuck The Cartel. Keep Stacking

Darn Turd, I had a hard time hearing Chris on his end, you where fine.

Jan 29, 2015 - 6:39pm

How come?

I was asked today why the metals are down big time and many of the stocks

down just a bit and some even up. i.e. Kinross, Yamana, Agnico, Pilot Gold...and others. Well,

as Jim Wille would likely retort "Because the big boys don't believe the paper metal sheisse price!!"

Gold and silver bullion is massively inadequate to meet bullion demands should investors lose confidence in the existing monetary system and demand delivery. Decades of central planning have disallowed capitalism to work and thus guarantee a day of reckoning for gold and silver bankers.
