A2A with Rob Kirby


2016 has begun with a bang and much of the volatility is due to global derivative exposure. With that in mind, what better time than now for another A2A webinar with bond trading and derivative expert, Rob Kirby.

Over the course of this 48-minute presentation, we tried to answer as many of your questions as possible. Some of the topics discussed include:

  • The meltdown at DeutscheBank. What could be causing it and what it might foreshadow.
  • The global sovereign liquidation of treasuries and how/why rates have barely budged.
  • The "oil patch" exposure for the Canadian banks and which banks might be at most risk to collapsing oil prices.
  • The fragile nature of the current precious metal paper derivative pricing scheme and what you can do to protect yourself from its inevitable collapse.
  • And much, much more.

Thanks again to Rob for being so generous with his time today and we look forward to speaking with him again soon. His expertise is sorely needed as we all attempt to navigate this "year of consequence".

Gold Deficits, Fort Knox, and a Reset


The US government INCREASED the official national debt by the “value” of all the gold in Fort Knox about 4.8 times EACH year since 1970. Unsustainable!

Fourth: Now add up the national debt increases in FKGU’s since 1970. This shows the total official national debt, in FKGU’s, as it has been accumulated since 1970. Note that the accumulated national debt, valued year by year in total official Fort Knox Gold Units, now exceeds 220.

Repeat: The official debt of the U.S. government, measured each year in the total “value” of all the gold officially vaulted in Fort Knox, would have spent the Fort Knox gold over 220 times. Unsustainable – this is not a viable system.

This is why Justin Trudeau became PM

Justin Trudeau -- Patrick Brazeau Charity Boxing Match -- English Coverage of Complete Fight

Aside from being Pierre Elliot Trudeau's son, that is.

Also, 20-somethings absolutely love him...

Good stuff, Craig. Rob's a good man.

That was really shocking to hear that the typical oil from the Alberta sands is going for less than $10 while west texas intermediate is going for $30!

@cch Re: Bill Holter

I listened to Bill's interview, and as much as I respect him for what he does, I found myself sayin' "Com'on man!" In December he was saying that within hours of a Fed rate hike the financial system could come tumblin' down in a couple of days. Now, January he's saying that if the Fed raises rates again in March...

Yup... the financial system could come tumblin' down in a couple of days!

Com'on man!!
