A2A with Alasdair Macleod of GoldMoney

42

What a terrific and timely Q&A session we had Wednesday with Alasdair Macleod. Very informative and a must listen for everyone.

Among the topics Alasdair addresses:

  • The significance of the UK elections on Thursday.
  • Next week's FOMC meeting and possible Fed Funds rate hike.
  • Physical demand for gold from China and India.
  • The stability of the EU and the entire EU banking system.
  • Will China soon spark a global, commodity-based inflation?
  • Sharia-compliant gold and the new "Onegram" digital currency.
  • And much, much more!

Again, this is a very informative podcast so I strongly urge you to give it a thorough listen. Thanks again to Alasdair for such a generous donation of his time!

Craig, Thank you for the

Craig, Thank you for the discussion with Rory Hall at Daily Coin.

It clarified many of my conundrums about Dollar/yen visavi gold.

It really assured me about your seriousness concerning correlation/causation business.

Above all, I think I better understand the deeper cause and means of it all.

I also am grateful to hear about your perspectives. I now await next 6 or 12 months with positive spirits.

Actually, it amazes me how you can grasp "things" both short and long term,

Keep on your great work.

WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN COMEY AND COMEX?

Nothing

Both puke up 40 tons of bullscheisse and EL Zippo

Gold gets doinked $18? Is that all they got? Pathetic Gold recovers $9

Comey

A leaker

A peaker

A midnight sneaker

We've just seen the EROI of Comey go to zero. Peak Comey and now the long slide to irrelevance.

fwiw = not much

The sham GLD added another 2.07 mts of "inventory" today.

New high total for 2017 at 867.00 mts

Many Banco Popular investors wiped out

Spain’s Ministry of the Economy revealed that by 3 pm Tuesday, Popular was no longer able to contain the deposit outflow. “It had exhausted all its lines of liquidity, both ordinary and extraordinary.” It had run out of collateral to cover any further lines of emergency liquidity.

This apparently triggered the intervention by the ECB’s Single Resolution Board (SRB), which decided on Tuesday that the bank “was failing or likely to fail” and would have to be wound down, unless a buyer could be found.

Banco Popular’s shareholders, who’d been repeatedly suckered into handing Popular fresh funds in numerous capital expansions, will be wiped out.

Alasdair Macleod on inflation...

In his last interview a few months ago he said that the Fed was almost incompetent for not seeing inflation signals. Today he talks about commodity based inflation. He seems to be definitely in the inflation camp. ....I'm not so sure. What if they print, print and print, and there's NO inflation...What if we all turn Japanese?

By inflation I don't mean inflated stock market.
