An Interesting Discussion with James Turk

74

Earlier today, we had the opportunity to get caught up with James Turk, legendary founder of GoldMoney. Besides giving us an update on the global precious metal markets, James also provided some background information on an important new venture he has started called Lend & Borrow Trust Company.

Detailed information on Lend & Borrow Trust can be found at the website. Please take a few minutes to look it over: https://lendborrowtrust.com

Over the course of this call, James gives his views on several important topics, including:

  • the current supply/demand equation for metal at the wholesale level
  • how/if the uptick in base metal prices is impacting silver
  • global sovereign gold demand and how this relates to the demise of dollar hegemony
  • his views on the events in Catalonia and how this could impact the EU

And, of course, we conclude with a detailed discussion of Lend & Borrow Trust and how this unique, new company is positioned to alter the peer-to-peer lending environment while at the same time providing unique new options for precious metal holders around the globe.

Thanks again to James for his time to today and thanks to everyone for giving this a thorough listen.

@bently....

I bet, the specs are shorting now...The manipulators control the USD/JPY index, and the specs respond shorting metals....We should be close to the bottom of the COT swing....Miners refuse to go down.

Less jobs = less expenses for corporations.

That's the only explanation I have for a strong stock market at this point. Less employee costs. Productivity.
