A2A with Dave Kranzler of Investment Research Dynamics

72

This week's A2A webinar guest was our old pal, Dave Kranzler. Dave generously gave us about an hour of his time and we made the most of it in this thought-provoking discussion.

Just a few of the topics covered include:

  • The history of DeutscheBank and how this is all still relevant today
  • Jim Rickards and his role as a "spokesperson" for gold
  • The relative safety of working with different custodians and online clearing firms
  • The benefits of owning shares in streaming/royalty companies
  • And, as usual, a whole lot more

I'm confident that you'll enjoy listening and, when you're done, you won't feel that you wasted an hour of your time. This is some pretty good stuff.

NUGT

I don't think I will look at my NUGT today. Will work on the bathroom though.

Should have sold yesterday when I was a buck up.

Bring on FUBM

BitGold/GoldMoney

Just opened an account last night. Was surprised at the ease. Funding the account was seamless. I don't know if it is standard for them but if you fund the account in the first 7 days, you get a free gram of gold. Thanks Turd. I wish I had pulled the trigger on it sooner. The best part of my funding, it was all money made from the excellent advice of our fearless leader.

"Engineering" / Rigging the markets prior to the non-rate hike

Seems to me they are rigging the markets going into the FOMC bullshit-fest in 2 weeks. Then, when they come out and say they are not hiking in September, then all the various indices go back to where they were a few days ago (as opposed to gold being significantly higher than 1350, the POSx being less than 94, 30-yr yields being much lower, the USD/JPY being below 100, etc.).

I'm with Turd, just raise those effin rates now. Get it over with. Let's get this grade school math party started. I'll pop some popcorn, & we'll see very quickly how raising interest rates a miniscule 0.25%.....yes, 0.25%..... absolutely shuts down this sham economy that's already gasping for breath. This would then give great clarity of what is going on behind the smoke & mirrors.

Fed Rate Hike

https://www.silverdoctors.com/headlines/finance-news/the-fed-has-impover...

Alasdair is of the view that they may well hike rates, but will offset the currency supply contraction by re-starting QE - but rather than a fixed monthly amount, give the Fed discretionary power to use it as and when (which is just more QE to infinity of course).

Personally I reckon if they do that, things will still crash.

What Happens if The Current

What Happens if The Current Silver Bull Market Performs Like Previous Ones? This Chart Predicts At Least $164 Silver

from Mining.com:

Last week we put out the same chart, but for gold prices and received an overwhelming response. We also received many emails asking what would happen if silver performs like its previous bull markets, and not surprisingly, it appears we are entering a similar period of prosperity.

Since the beginning of the current bull market, silver is already up 40%. While not enough to get crazy in the Hamptons yet, silver has incredible torque to outperform gold and based on this chart, we predict silver will hit $70 an ounce this cycle.

me too

It's like every "market" is being coerced into believing that Mother is going to hike rates and gold ain't buying it.

OR

Since gold has rallied 25% since the last FF rate hike, maybe gold is beginning to front-run Mother in anticipation of a hike?
