A2A with John Embry


On Wednesday, the legendary John Embry joined us for a webinar that was full of insight and wisdom. You should be sure to listen to this recorded copy of the audio.

Among the topics discussed over the course of this call:

  • the current level of sentiment in the precious metals space and how this compares to past bull markets
  • the recent visit to Ft Knox by SecTreas Mnuchin
  • possible future confiscation of retirement assets to fund government spending
  • John's favorite gold and silver miners
  • the idea of an official revaulation of the US' gold reserves
  • and a whole lot more!

Again, please make the time to give this podcast a thorough listen. You won't be disappointed!

Okay... just gotta!

Ty to John for the nice thoughts on my Seahawks.

For the record.....Packers will beat Seattle tomorrow, in effect taking a two game lead on us ...necessitating my Seahawks return to Green Bay to get to where we wanna go.

Numpty You're the first to catch that insider reference

Part of my family name and line goes back to the time when Gaul was putting the whoop ass on the Romans. Gaul was never conquered.

We just played along until we could come back and finish off the invaders

Your name reminds me of Astérix (and Obélisk), the Gaulic protagonists of a French comic.

Good point Matt_ Taking .7% in a day adds up

If you dont like JNUG or NUGT just take DUST for the ride down. Either way, if you catch the direction of the PMs and miners you can shave some nice coin off the loin. Get in; get out and get on with your day

Add .7% over a week or month and that makes expenses and some extra for the kitty

I was addicted to 5-10% a day and got hosed. Now 1% is fine as frog's hair

Agree with Bill Holder. Best example is the lack of criminal actions from the Justice Department. That is equivalent to your local District Attorney taking no criminal cases to the local Grand Jury like murder, rape, robbery, theft, etc. and instead fining each one. That is against the law itself and The Justice Department is violating the law when they don't take criminal cases to a Federal Grand Jury...But no one im Federal government makes Justice do their job.

Bill Holter...

One thing Bill's been saying for quite awhile and I'm in total agreement with.

"The country will not correct itself until it returns to the rule of law"

Like the lawlessness in the banking and political sectors...

Convicted corrupt politicians, bank CEO's and employees have to start doing jail time!

Criminality is not limited to one political party but an action by "criminals". Criminals are in charge and doing everything they can to suppress the law and Constitution of the US, so they continue to be criminals.

Irma gets much of our immediate attention. But big things are happening on the political front too -


Of course, this is why the Ds are playing the 'Russian hacking' card. To divert attention from their criminality and try to de-legitimize the email intercepts.

I had a good day. And I'm done trading in 27 minutes.

Got 0.7% return on my trades today after brokerage fees, and I am in the green on both DUST and NUGT trades. Decided to quit while I am ahead and shut down my telescreens. I'd take a 0.7% daily return every day of the week if I could do it. I read Ernie Chan's book, and now I agree with him. Mean reversion is a better starting point for developing a trade system than trend following.
