A2A with Dimitri Speck

90

A tremendously informative webinar today with gold analyst and author, Dimitri Speck. You should be sure to give it a listen.

Among the topics addressed:

  • Dimitri recalls the period of 2001-2008, where the price of gold rose even while interest rates also moved higher
  • The current state of the global market for physical gold
  • Dimitri's thoughts on the impact of Shanghai Gold Exchange
  • The state of the European Union and what this implies for the euro, interest rates and gold
  • How the mining shares may perform in the months ahead

Again, this was a very interesting webinar and I encourage you to give this audio your time and attention.

I't a creepy world...very creepy

My opinion is that some Russian creeps interfered in American election...And here is my question: Americans never interfered in other countries elections? Never?...Just ask creepy Victoria Nuland.

On this day of your life Turdville...

I believe God wants you to know... that nothing is ever as bleak as it looks. Everything, in fact, is a blessing.

I know, I know... that is sometimes very hard to believe. How can a sudden, calamitous event in one's life be a blessing? It takes a longer view, I know, to see this wonderful truth. Even a diagnosis of a terminal illness could be seen as another gift from life when experienced from a particular perspective. It is an opportunity for us to express once again, at the next highest level, Who We Really Are.

And, if it turns out that, at the Soul level, we have indeed decided to leave our present physicality in this particular way and time, that, too, would be an expression of our Highest Self.

And so, all "calamities" are blessings, not yet understood by the Mind. God knew this was a good day for you to hear this...

Love, your Friend ...

Conversations with God, changed my life! I get these little notes every morning and thought today might be appropriate to share.

lund175 / BTC ETF's

I think initially the approval will cause the BTC price to spike and maybe the price spike now is anticipating that.

It seems that it's possible (probable) the ETF will create a pool of ledgered BTC's with no blockchain transactions ( or only a % of transactions ). The blockchain event will only occur if "the fund" actually buys or sells actual Bitcoin or allows the investor to withdraw his actual BTC. To me it's a lot like GLD or SLV; are physical metals really being bought and sold? Will a real blockchain transaction event be occurring on the buy and sell?

The recent crackdown of the China exchanges stopped this phony volume.

To what degree the ETF is nefarious and how successful it is in controlling BTC I guess we will have to see. My belief is it will create volatility but won't be able to control BTC in the long run.

Russophobia i suspect that

Russophobia

i suspect that all this ridiculous crap, the Russians interfering in elections etc is a plan to ensure Trump cannot in the near future be seen as cozying up to them and warming relations this would be a disaster for the MIC scumbags.

Trump has a few months at most before these dirtbags drag him down and that my fiends is much much worse than " interfering in the elections it is treason plain and simple , the left telling us we don't want your choice in the white house, if we cannot steal the election we will simply throw out "your "president

What is your thought on the 3 BTC ETF's that are trying to make it to market?

Seems like options/ shorting on BTC might be possible.
