A Visit with Marin Katusa


Earlier today, I had the opportunity to visit with fund manager, analyst and best-selling author Marin Katusa.

Over the course of this call, Marin and I discuss:

It was a real treat to finally have the opportunity to visit with Marin. I'm confident that you'll enjoy listening to this interview.

@SS121 - "free-market"

Nice piece SS - thanks - not that I understand all of it clearly. For instance, would you mind elaborating on your statement: "Physical Silver and Gold will set these values on the free-market, not privately owned exchanges." ? By this do you mean that the value will be set by people (like you and me) actually physically meeting and exchanging their phyz for whatever the currency is at the time - i.e. a physical exchange (at one's local coffee-shop say) where one party hands phyz to the other in return for an agreed amount of the currency? If so, from where will these two people get the exchage rate (for the currency vs gold)?

Thanks for your patience.

system - some 'the end' stuff

exactly how the charts will conduct their final acts of desperation is unknown

some things are known

  • Physical Silver and Gold will be the value setting mechanism for all surviving currencies
  • Physical Silver and Gold will set these values on the free-market, not privately owned exchanges. ("maybe next time Tom and Andy?... maybe not")
  • "gold" talk will greatly increase in the media.
  • the masses will grow more and more "gold" ("gold" in the fiat system context) aware due to the system's upcoming currency maneuverings
  • Silver (physical Silver) awareness will hit the masses out of nowhere. They will go from Clueless-to-Silver! in less than a week.

- - - - -

since the system has to string along the masses via the media, it's pretty easy to figure out which direction it's trying to go.

  • "disruption" in the current exchanges,
  • an attempted transition of chart power to the cny, the sge, and other exchanges.
  • digital system creations are on their marks (calls of cashlessness are already ineffectually nudging the herd that way)
  • take down the USD
  • reverse flow of physical metal back to the system
  • all the same ole stuff

it all keeps stalling out, failing to get traction, and it's not going to get any better. it will get bigger, but don't fear the system's loud grand finale death. don't confuse it's wailing and gnashing of charts and media stories with reality.

we've been aware of the complete hoax nature of the system for years now, the public is going to be absorbing reality in a matter of days. and if anybody still thinks the silver chart prices come from a traded market, even after that recent "silver fix / silver chart downspike" fiasco that they tried selling to the public, then ...yeah, (wow) probably won't be getting off that train until even the clueless masses 'get it'. but they will, in 'the end'.

lots of big fun ahead as we watch things go from where they are now to where we know they will ultimately end up.

the staging, the preparatory movements and commands, the shifting media focus to "gold" and crash/crisis/chaos warnings, ...all any Silver stacker could hope for.

all the best to those transitioning from pixels to phyzz and to those already stacked and enjoying the show.

Yuan revalued with gold.... the gold-silver ratio

They have bought lots of gold for years. They may have planned all along to recapitalize the system by revaluing gold. Dunno, it may work.
China's Global Gold Strategy

Gold to silver ratio
In nearly every single major recession and panic of the last century, there was a sharp rise in the gold/silver ratio.

The crash of 1987. The Dot-Com bust in the late 1990s. The 2008 financial crisis.

These panics invariably led to a gold/silver ratio in the 70s or higher.

In 2008, in fact, the gold/silver ratio surged from below 50 to a high of roughly 84 in just two months.

We’re seeing another major increase once again. Right now as I write this, the gold/silver ratio is 81.7, nearly as high as the peak of the 2008 financial crisis.

Reserved for Marchas.

I think we all realize that both silver and gold are in a bull market.

Unfortunately it is because the markets are a lot of bull.

Marin Katusa

I've listened to Marin at a few of the metals conferences. He promoted PRD Energy heavily from that pulpit. From around a dollar to 5 cents at the moment. Yes, I understand he is 'connected' to big money and people. Just can't listen to him anymore.

Mar 9, 2016 - 10:12pm

Ok Marchas
