A2A with Simon Mikhailovich of Tocqueville Bullion Reserve


Earlier today, we were able to visit with a new guest for our webinar series, Simon Mikhailovich of Tocqueville Bullion Reserve. Simon was full of terrific information and insights so I strongly encourage you to carve out some time to give this a listen.

Among the topics covered over the course of this 45-minute discussion:

  • What might be the global impact of President Trump's new tariff plan?
  • What lies ahead in 2018 for global interest rates and the US dollar?
  • Might global central banks move one day to officially revalue gold significantly higher?
  • How does the global gold supply/demand equation look at present?
  • And a whole lot more!

Again, there's a bunch information packed into this audio so please be sure to give it a thorough listen. Thanks again to Simon for spending time with us and we look forward to visiting with him again sometime soon.

A2A & GoToWebinar

Hey Turd, Hey all!

I think this might be my first post, but I've tweeted you on twitter from @KetoSpeculator before In fact I had mentioned you should interview Simon, although I'm sure some others did as well! A bit late here but just wanted to mention after your lamentation on the lack of active questions for Simon .. I for one would say you should cancel GoToWebinar, that price is crazy! You can do live streams on youtube and there is even a chat box where people can type in, although I have never initiated one myself so I am not sure if you can lock it down to just certain users. I know youtube does have an 'unlisted' video where you have to know the URL to view the video, and it doesn't come up in a search, but I am not sure if you can have an 'unlisted' live stream. You could always have the live stream on youtube and take questions via twitter direct message chat (multiple people can engage in non-public chat) or whatever other sort of chat mechanism.. maybe even put one on your site or just request tweets/emails of questions in advance then do the youtube live stream and ignore whatever trolls find it and type in things to the youtube chat. Sadly I am generally at work during the A2A and even if I had it on in the background I'd have to re-listen to it if its content of any depth so I can actually pay attention.

Thanks for keeping up the good fight and keeping us all sane! :D

Turdly, what a stunning discussion you had with Oliver!! Please keep it up as it really puts the fire power back in some old shoes. You mentioned that Oliver is a sailor..........me too, thirty years. Would not “FOREST FOR THE TREES” make a wonderful name for a large very, competitive sail boat?

Take care , I love your stuff

Waiting for turd's morning notes

From the A2A

It's not about the nominal value, but the purchasing power of your assets.

450 billon in interest paid out - 1.6 trillion of income taxes - with the rates at the lowest that they've ever been. End

It's all about the Deficit People - Cohen is not even a blip on the radar.

Looks like another shell game BLBS report. The Dax has already lost the plus sign on the day. fwiw Another "Rope-a-dope" type day in store? Gap up opening on Stocks - for Gold, we stomach a few hits to the belly without long term chart damage.

Bonne journée

Mar 9, 2018 - 9:34am


BLBS calling the FED , BLBS calling the FED

"what would you like the number to be this month"

Let's see how the market likes this BLBS shite taco, the ten year popped over 2.9 , dollar dropped and popped, once the market digest the numbers I think we steady out and the jobs number is forgotten about by Monday!!!!

Oh and if I hear backup the truck or BTFD one more time , I'm gonna " squeem and squeem until I'm thick"

Let's put the truck in forward FFS
