TFMR Podcast - Friday, January 30

241

Right on cue, gold rebounded today and recovered most of the contract expiration losses of yesterday. Now, with another volatile week ahead, can it crawl back toward $1300 and, if it does, what will happen with silver?

As we wrap up the week and the month (a month which saw gold +8% while the S&P was -3%), just a discussion of these charts:

GOLD

SILVER

the HUI and the S&P

And this crazy chart of 10-year German and Japanese bond yields

Regarding the totally insane global interest rate picture, please print off and read this remarkable story from Zerohedge. Then take the printed copy and add it to your Stack For Posterity. https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-01-30/denmark-you-are-now-paid-take-...

And finally, here's a fun article from SRSrocco covering many of the topics we regularly discuss here in Turdville: https://srsroccoreport.com/big-trouble-for-u-s-gold-market-no-available-...

Have a great weekend!

@flyinkel

Thanks for saving me that all-important time inkel - I'm not as young as I used to be and every waking minute is precious!

I suppose that Turd had no choice but to put it up here - if he did not he could been accused of trying to hide it. It's tough at the top.

Turd, we know you know your oats - your track records proves it - as others have said, your predictions for this week past were more than sufficient to cover ten years of subs to the site!

SS my bad ! Your are correct

But you can bury the same amount of gold with a spade and save the 185. Different strokes.

never too much Silver

This full pallet (5 high) would be 25,000 oz of silver

you could sleep late, rent a piece of junk backhoe

like this one-

<--- per day $185.00

And easily have it all buried and filled with pretty flowers planted on top before lunch.

Some see a glass half empty, some see a glass half full, some see a drowning hazard.

Sorry Chilly D interview a total waste of time

Put an informed guest with an imbecile and this is what you get, a total waste of time. Chilly D wasn't there to learn, he never gave hard solid facts or counter analysis other than an argumentative tone. Surprised Chilly D knew the word "pontificate". That's 23 minutes (just had to stop, too mind numbingly bereft of honest 2 way discussion) I'll never get back and 41 minutes Turd will never get back. So either Chilly D is really about a 70 IQ or this was an attempt at a drive-by creditability "hit shot" gone awry because the interviewer wasn't capable enough to handle Turd.

If you are time constrained, I recommend a "pass".

Sorry about the double post

Anyway, if you want to buy 13 million in metal then you have to buy gold because that much silver is just a pain in the ass to store. Besides it's so much silver that you can't get it up from the bottom of the lake.

So, it's all in the question.

This answer is the question

if you are gonna buy $1300 of gold or silver then silver is cheap versus gold right now. But if you are gonna buy $130000 then storing silver becomes somewhat of an issue. And if you are gonna buy $1,300,000 of metal well where and how are you gonna store that much silver?

You can put 1.3 million of gold in a boot box. You can store 1.3 million of silver in a small closet. Transport is another problem in case you want to bug out.

I met a guy with 50000 ounces of silver and he has it stored in 4 places and 2 countries. Can't exactly stand in front of it with a shotgun and defend it all.

@gazzmann: GAAP accounting

"how can central banks report 2014 inflows of 207 tons from the NY Fed, while said NY Fed only reports 177 tons of outflows."

https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-01-31/did-federal-reserve-make-major...

It all has to do with exactly how the NY Fed keeps its ledgers. If the Ukraine gold never really physically gets to the Fed then it isn't booked in but when its received by other central banks the origin is noted as the NY Fed. What exactly is the difference, 30 tonnes? Well that's a coincidence. Remember there are no coincidences.

@ tyberious: Greece

The only thing I find surprising about the story that Putin has sent special forces to protect Greek leaders is that it became public so quickly. Given the recent Russian overtures it's an obvious part of the package.

Given the current geopolitical state, the Prime Minister has to be a prime target and other ministers lesser targets. I imagine there are already well developed plans to take him out. I wonder, if there are limited ways of accomplishing this task, how much collateral damage TPTB are prepared to accept. If I were a EU minister I'd be quite wary about meeting with any Greek equivalent.
