Thursday Conversation - Rob Kirby

A discussion of negative rates, the banking sector and the precious metals.


The great Rob Kirby of Kirby Analytics is here for an insightful discussion that you don't want to miss.

Over the course of this call, Rob addresses several key points, including:

  • the madness of negative rates and why they're here to stay
  • the impact of negative rates on the banking sector
  • fraud within the accounting of the US government
  • the 2019 rally in the precious metals
  • why he prefers physical metal to the mining shares

Rob also mentions something called FASB Rule 56. You can learn more about that here: https://home.solari.com/fasab-statement-56-understanding-new-government-...

I expect Powell to play a "tough guy" tomorrow...

In front of his fellow bankers....It's a a bankers' day after all.

But not too tough...to crash the market.

Smells like

Beat down today so when metals rise tomorrow they start from a lower point...

Pippa Malmgren on Macro Voices

If you want to hear what an elitist, tyrant mindset sounds like in an unvarnished, utterly honest context, listen to Eric Townsend’s interview of Dr. Pippa Malmgren on Macro Voices. Her limitless confidence in her own ability to see how a rosy future can still be centrally planned, coupled with her callous disregard for the suffering of the little people in the event she or her ilk should ever have to pull a monetary switcharoo is skin crawling stuff. It sounds to me like her psychological raw materials may be sourced from the same place as Stalin's.

ROB KIRBY 100% straight up no nonsense kinda guy

the thing I admire the most about this guy is he says it like it is & has the BALLS to call people out ( RESPECT ) Been listening to him for years & they don't come more AUTHENTIC than him ...

i have also been saying for years that the ELITE will pimp BITCOIN to draw as many People as possible in & then pull the RUG when the time is right

( Bitcoin is for gamblers only ) it's nothing but a speculation

Good to hear from Rob

I have listened to others suspecting the cryptos have been offered and goosed to look good as an alternative to the metals.

I heared Satashi Nakamoto is revealing that he is the one that came up with the idea of Bitcoin but others actually were the creators and that he has about a million of them and that he may be selling some soon. But what do I know about what's right or wrong about the cryptos, not a lot.
