A2A with Grant Williams


Grant Williams is author of the popular newsletter "Thanks That Make You Go Hmmm" as well as a co-founder of RealVisionTV. He's also a fantastic guest for A2A as we found out earlier today.

Over the course of this call, Grant addresses a variety of issues including:

  • The growing popularity of gold and gold-related investments among thought leaders in finance
  • Negative interest rates around the world and the impact on gold prices
  • The relative importance of Comex figures and other physical metal datapoints
  • The likelihood of "Brexit"...or an eventual "Gerexit", "Frexit" or "Belexit"
  • And much, much more.

This was a terrific call and we should all be grateful for Grant's willingness to share his wisdom and expertise. I hope we're able to have him on again sometime soon.

If two objects are substitutes and they are in equal quantity... the price would be equal.

If we can acknowledge that there are forces out there attempting to manipulate the masses (to sustain the ponzi scheme) and then notice that they only talk about (deride) one of the objects... can we not make the next step and realize that they certainly do not want anyone to consider the substitute of the object derided?

If everyone focuses on Gold then no one will notice Silver, that is "their" goal?

Have they been able to manipulate all the mathematical portfolio optimization programs via their 50 year silver chart prices?? (which looks like a perfect cup and handle formation BTW)

I wonder when CNBS will discuss Silver???

For the record I'm skeptical on a Comex bust at this time, ppl have cried wolf to many times, but I'm hopeful.

Jun 9, 2016 - 4:16pm

Tyberious re Comex bust

Yeah man!! We been there before. At least in the past, I always rushed to stack a little more when the fear (hope?) was spreading. Never hurts to stack IMHO.

How do you get the stock mkt back to even?

Simple. Just have the BoJ buy the USDJPY and rescue it from critical support at 106.40

At 235.15, the HUI today put on a new high close for 2016, eclipsing the 233.46 close of April 29. Pretty cool.

Nice interview

with Grant Williams, thank you, gentlemen!

Here is surprisingly good interview with Peter Schiff with CNBC's Fast Money crowd, until that smirking little dweeb starts shouting him down: https://youtu.be/tBJ31G6FdhQ

GLD gained 6.23 tonnes today

No change in SLV.

It's Gonna Be Awful!

What's "Awful" is that damned smirking little dweeb !

Jun 9, 2016 - 6:23pm

And here's an interesting stat

The paper price of gold peaked on May 2 at $1306. The GLD "inventory" that day stood at 804.14 mts.

Over 110,000 contracts of Comex open interest were shaken out with the May price drop of $100 yet the GLD stands tonight at 887.38 mts. From May 2, this is up 83.24 mts or 10.35%.

How the Federal Reserve

How the Federal Reserve Manages the Dollar and Avoids Collapse

Will the Fed Sacrifice the Dollar To Save the Markets?

The Dollar Index* is higher today than it was before the Federal Reserve launched a series of quantitative easing programs that involved printing over $4 trillion out of thin air in order to buy U.S. Treasury Bonds and mortgage backed securities from the too big too fail banks.

How did the Fed pull this off without causing a collapse in the dollar?

In the podcast below we show how Fed open mouth operations, yack attacks and coordination with other central banks keeps confidence in the dollar and demand for U.S. Treasuries elevated.

Dollar confidence and demand for U.S. Treasury bonds are two of the most important assets that the United States has and the Federal Reserve is entrusted with protecting both of them. Without foreign central bank demand for U.S. Treasuries, the United States could not conduct its welfare/warfare state deficit spending.

In this podcast we show why protecting or keeping the dollar in an acceptable range and demand for U.S. Treasuries high is more important than the Fed’s stated dual mandate of “maximizing employment, stabilizing prices and moderating long term interest rates.”

A Dollar Not Too Strong, Not Too Weak

A dollar that is too strong makes exported U.S. military hardware too expensive for foreign purchases and dollar that is too weak can cause a lack of confidence in the dollar and can cause domestic inflation because the U.S. relies heavily on imports.

A point not made explicitly in the podcast – If an interest rate hike causes the equity markets to crash, demand for U.S. Treasuries will spike, thus furthering the Fed’s objectives of keeping demand high for U.S. Treasury bonds.

Please have a listen and check out the charts and links below:

Will the Fed Sacrifice the Dollar To Save the Markets?

RE: How the Federal Reserve

On the that graph he presents, it looks like the dollar is in a wide descending channel. All of the dollar bottoms correspond with Gold highs and the dollar's peaks are becoming shallower and shallower. If this pattern continues the dollar index will crash lower than 82! That may be lights out.

CDE - Coeur- lackluster today. News?

Just asking to see if anyone knows of any news for Coeur (CDE) today. With the tailwind of the HUI pushing this sector up just seems odd it closed red.

Jun 9, 2016 - 7:58pm

they can't talk the usd to death

they have to bust up the fx and try to establish a new currency pricing method that doesn't have the usd as the standard

maybe multiple gold exchanges, or individual central bank gold prices, or similar.

all jabbering thus far has been to create a theoretical context in which they can try and talk the usd to death. not that any of the claimed failings (de-dollarizaion, petrol dollar death, yuan internationalization, etc) can or will ever manifest, but they create the perception of the dollar dying so that when the actual attempt is made it will be accepted and believed by the public.

1,000 points of light. composition in the aggregate. it's not working. the order out of chaos will only last long enough for all the suckers to see the hoax fail at the height of their chestpounding.

there are consequences to ignoring reality in search of comfort and attention.

and the test continues . . .

Jun 9, 2016 - 8:10pm

Re: they can't talk the usd to death

The dollar's strength is synonymous with USG T&B. Until other investment vehicles allowed by all of the big funds and other governments, that's the quid pro qou. The other option to supplant the Dollar UST nexus is for there to be a superior widely used currency. If CB and government are unwilling to use, hold and transact, no critical mass.

That is what dare I say, The Chinese and Russia understand and are working towards that!!!

And No the Chinese are not part of the NWO!!

CDE - Coeur lackluster today


I checked the charts and it is up around 500% since January. It might simply be consolidating for awhile after the big move up. I don't think there is anything to worry about CDE. Wish I had bought some myself last year.

I just assume it was digesting yesterdays 5.5% gain. PAAS (panam silver) was also negative today. CDE has had a fantastic run - up 252% year to date while PAAS is only up 139% YTD.
