A2A with Simon Mikhailovich of Tocqueville Bullion Reserve

72

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.

  • Friday, March 9
  • 08:30 AM Nonfarm payroll employment, February (GS +210k, consensus +205k, last +200k); Private payroll employment, February (GS +200k, consensus +195k, last +196k); Average hourly earnings (mom), February (GS +0.3%, consensus +0.3%, last +0.3%); Average hourly earnings (yoy), February (GS +2.8%, consensus +2.8%, last +2.9%); Unemployment rate, February (GS 4.0%, consensus 4.0%, last 4.1%): We estimate nonfarm payrolls rose 210k in February, compared to a consensus forecast of +205k. Our forecast reflects warmer weather and unseasonably light snow in the month of February. Following a fourth 4.1% reading in a row, we estimate the unemployment rate edged lower to 4.0% in February as the underlying job growth trend likely remained strong; labor market perceptions improved, and initial claims continued to decline. For average hourly earnings, we estimate a +0.3% month-over-month gain (with risks tilted to the downside) and +2.8% from a year ago, reflecting favorable calendar effects.
  • 10:00 AM Wholesale inventories, January final (consensus +0.7%, last +0.7%)
  • 12:45 PM Chicago Fed President Evans (FOMC non-voter) speaks: Chicago Federal Reserve President Evans will give a speech on economic conditions and monetary policy at an event titled “The Fed’s Return to Normalcy” at the Manhattan Institute in New York.

Silver

Silver has been too stable, $16-16.50, for too long. The swings in this area are becoming boring. Unless the chart makers are making coin here, I feel (my SJW coming out) that a bust up and through $17 is in the cards. But, everytime I get this feeling, a kick in nads happens.

Party hat or cup?

Sounds to Me

That since China shipped some gold to the LBMA, we have the new not free paper market scam.

And ponder this...

This absolutely crazy and unprecedented move by the LBMA goes live six days after the expected launch of the CNY-crude. Related?

They Want It All

Suppress the price until everyone but banks give up.

This is unbelievable

This link was already posted but it demands your attention!

In the 21st century, only one global institution has managed to go backward and make themselves even MORE opaque and above-the-law. The Criminal LBMA.
