A2A with Bill Holter


Just a great call earlier today illustrating why we host these webinars in the first place. Bill spent nearly an hour answering a wide array of questions from a large group of listeners. Great stuff and you should definitely take the time to listen yourself.

Over the course of the call, Bill addresses topics such as:

  • The Greek situation
  • The OCC report last week showing the exponential increase in commodity derivatives
  • Yesterday's internet and system "glitches"
  • How to protect yourself against confiscation and/or confiscatory taxes
  • And much, much more

Again, this is a lenghthy call so break it up into separate sittings if you need to. Just be sure to take the time to give this a thorough listen. You won't be disappointed.

Thanks for the notes, SS121

I'm sitting in this boring deposition, and I cannot listen to the podcast yet. But, from your notes, I have a good idea what it's about, and now I am very excited to get to listen to it tonight.

Thanks for taking the time to make the notes, I really appreciate it.

unedited a2a notes

bill holter a2a
beep beep
the webinar will begin shortly please remain on the line
1103 start
tf- intro, bill's online sound test
bh- good morning, both loud and clear
tf- previous rob kirby a2a didn't record, hope this one works
tf- ready to record??
bh- fire away
tf- admin: how to type in questions etc, here we go.. record
tf- greece, china meltdown, selling illegal, corruption, madness in summer of 15. bh is with us. bh is with jsmineset now, how did that happen??
bh- jsmineset.com has been around nearly 15 years or so, js and i go back and forth, js is focused on mine in tanzania, conferences coming up, might make it a pay site. plans are up in the air, talk to js a few times a day, he's brilliant guy.
tf- jsmineset first site i found in 2007/8. started blog in 2010, emailed jim, he said will love/hate it. questions are building, but first, crazy world stuff aside, first talk about retail shortages and paper price stuff ??
bh- overview, paper price hit new lows, mint suspended sales same day until aug. can't get silver, can't crank out coins... either situation doesn't fit a low and crashing price. maybe the floor wasn't broken, back when it went from 23 to 8 it still cost 15 and now premiums are up. from a phyzz standpoint there at a floor.
tf- if phyzz isn't delivered, it loses credibility.
bh- dealer called yesterday and said "i'm out of all product" said 2 weeks to resupply. comex is not the price of silver, what it costs to get in your hands is the price of silver. mint marks up, dealers mark up. to get it in your hand is the real price
tf- delivery patterns showing demand, 30 million jumped que for delivery
tf- jumping around, the chinese outlawed selling stocks, crazy... your thoughts on the overall change?
bh- just a non-news day today would have caused a major crash 30 years ago
tf- how did this happen? how we get out?
bh- corruption... complete collapse
tf- time for questions..
?scott: where else beside pms will money flow?
bh- maybe basic products, food utilities etc. necessaties, but first and foremost Silver and Gold
tf- irrigated farmland is going for 10k usd per acre!
bh- processing capacity would be more likely to profit, high land makes it impossible to profit
?: re: greece- danforth: what are your thoughts on next week if greece is out... this time.
bh- what they should do, imo. greece should go full iceland. default, drachma, exit, and trade east. west/eurozone is broke. iceland did it and it worked fine. eu is like anvil around neck, walk away. ambrost evans said they expected a yes vote, but greek stood up and voted no. it was an overwhelming no. any deals now will lead to riots
tf- can kicking losing effect
bh- when is this called a default?? it's already a default.
fred: if defualt never declared, will rates be forced up?
bh- being without insurance will create margin calls. can't price cds at a level that will offest bonds. it will all be known as worth zero, since it can't be paid. notional value of everything on earth doesn't equal derivatives amount.
bh- everything will default. everything paper will default, it's all a paper ponzi based on debt. sovereigns have hit ceiling. must have new investors. now that it can't expand there are no more new investors and it's now over.
tf- assets are liabilities and debt// commodities derivatives exp?
bh- jpm 3.5 trillion in gold is 35 years of production
tf- what does that mean? it's outragous, what is behind scenes??
bh- long? short? counterparties? no way of knowing,
bh- it's likely being done to collar silver and gold prices..
tf- here goes the questions---
patricia- windfall profit tax on gold??
bh- possible, if it occurs look at mining companies. ...if worried, spread cash around
vic- ever have bad days??
bh- everyone does, you just have to go back. 2 plus 2 will always equal 4. i started in metals in 97. harry bingham was mentor, we both thought gold was manipulated. what is more valuable... paper cash or gold? Gold is scarce, fall back on logic and trust it.
larry- short term price thoughts. any chance of much lower prices?
bh- doesn't matter, don't care, if you know the ending take advantage of mispriced assets
steven- thoughts on electronic glitches??
bh- yes, writing article on it now. spoke with js about it. 3 scenarios 1 not connected glitches, no 2- china retaliation for markets toppled? possibility. 3- per js, ppt are world-wide. they opened down and couldn't hold it so they pulled the plug. maybe. i think it's part 2 and part 3. we're in a war and somebody pulled the plug. ppt are in all nations, once they spill over the ppt start fighting each other. that's my thought process
rod- vaulting in singapore?
bh- js favors it, i think it's ok to store in non-bank vaults in switzerland. also in montreal etc... must be non-bank tho
mike- new to gold and silver, wants to learn options?
bh- don't do it. it's paper. force majeur at a paper price kills you. stay out. buy phyzz and get it in hands. look at miners, get certs.
phil- foa and fofoa, freegold?
bh- no idea, they have a good thought process, but the 1% of it goes religion
tf- freegold hates silver
bh- yes, that's wrong, gold and silver should be close to par, more silver comes out of ground, but more silver is gone. it will go to 15 to 1
tf- silver has longer history than gold bh- yep, chinese, tf/bh silver greece drachma
ned- what is concept on global currency reset?
bh- it's coming, absolutely. usd to rmb 1:1 overnight maybe
tf- back to occ report, could it be opposing trades
bh- very possible, just back and forth.
carl- chinese are big pm hoarders, for how long? tf they got the gold?
bh- 10,000 tons easy. i believe they'll be in the sdr, if it means anything idk. chinese may be on the short side, it will only go on as long as supply continues.
tf- how low can they let price go? bh right, pushing and pulling at the same time. lower prices creates demand.
bh- harvey organ said the 700 tons was paper in gld. maybe they are out of metal
?end game if central banks are buying stocks
bh- it's possible markets can't go down but urrencies collapse. zimbabwe etc.. possible
??rob, what about bitgold??
bh- i personally can't get with the digitalness of gold. look at yesterday's glitches. idk. me? no. phyzz only.
tf- same with the greek euro limitations.
bh- exactly, people should already be out. who in right mind leaves money in greek bank??
tf- even 5 thousand dollar withdrawals get questioned.
tf- time for final four!!
ff1- which better season football in texas??
bh- baylor
ff2- texas, ever referred to someone all hat no cattle
bh - oh yes
ff3- who will be repub nominee prez
bh- jeb bush (tf trump is goofy, but his words appeal, people shouldn't write him off)
ff4- platinum, do you own any? want to buy any?
bh- no and no

tf-wrap up thanks, best luck in adventures.
bh- send me link for
recording off
tf- appears to have recorded
bh- those were great questions, esp re: yesterday.

---excellent a2a, thanks gents---

I'll take the fifth!

Nice interview. "The Greeks have already defaulted, and it seems that no defaults will be recognized to prevent the crash of the derivative house of cards!" (my summary of that topic)

Jul 9, 2015 - 2:48pm


will be history next week. I think he will ignore the vote of his people and will sell their soul to the criminal bankster and politicians elite when they meet with the peace price winner Obama the coming days....Obama told him to take freshly printed money from the IMF or he will be "game over" soon. Same with Varoufakis: Leave the office or you will have an accident with your motorbike.
