Discussing Palladium with David Jensen

Very helpful information in this FREE podcast.


With palladium prices surging again and physical metal in tight supply, there is an abundance of incorrect analysis and misinformation on the internet. This podcast will explain for you the forces at work that are driving price and what, if anything, the palladium market may foreshadow for gold and silver investors.

I've known David Jensen for a few years and he's the guy who first directed me to watch palladium back in 2018. David understands how the LBMA and LPPM operate and, as such, provides analysis and information that is actionable and unrivaled.

For this call, David and I begin by setting the background of metals trading and how digital derivative and fractional reserve pricing has led to a supply deficit for palladium that streches back several years. Please follow along as David discusses these two charts:

And then be sure to check these two links that David mentions as the discussion turns specifically to palladium:

Finally, the past three days have seen palladium prices plunge by 10% as JPMorgan transferred some metal from New York to London in a move designed to ease the supply pressures. However, note that the bulk of the selling has occurred during Comex hours...where next to zero metal ever changes hands:

And further note that over the past twelve months, there have been five previous corrections of this magnitude. All of them only served to lead to the next higher high. Will this current correction be any different?

Many thanks to David for his time today. For daily updates, be sure to follow him on Twitter @realDavid Jensen: https://twitter.com/RealDavidJensen

* On one hand, I think they've been more manipulated than the metals themselves...A convenient tool for the cartel.

** On the other hand, most of them also profit from producing base metals....And just look what happened to the price of copper (among others) after the virus outbreak.

Commodity Index, Energy Stocks and Interest Rates Tanking

Yep, all natural resources are breaking down once again. It appears that deflation is coming to town once again here. Again, this is all by design because 0% to negative interest rates are the goal here.

The Fed will follow the bond yields lower with more rate cuts, this will benefit all financial assets (stocks, bonds, real estate). This is how the stock market makes even bigger gains in the months and years ahead. This will also allow the Fed to crank up the QE that will add even more juice to those markets.

The 10 and 30 year bonds are close to making new all-time highs, this isn't interest rate manipulation, this is market forces at work. This move is just the start and there's nothing that's going to stop it.

The energy stocks are also getting killed here, but it really doesn't even matter anymore. The XLE is only 5% of the market cap of the entire market now, so a -50% decline from here won't even make a dent into the overall market.

There is no white knight coming to the rescue, The Elite will let the economic decline happen and just bailout their own assets. There is no helicopter money or UBI to Main Street.

IF the commodity decline continues I have my doubts that the PM's will be able to hold the ground. Yes, gold has and likely will continue to outperform commodities on a relative basis, but that's not very good if the declines continue.

Cash is trash? No Ray, it's buying more and more resources. The proof is in the pudding, not worthless rhetoric.

this current sickness issue

at its core i believe it is a ploy to begin martial law as the system is about to pop.
if the people fear flu and accept imposed quarantine, then after then can bring the system down... cause everyone is locked down already...

BS miner markets

Some tough decision making could be ahead regarding the miners. There is a chance they explode higher this year or in the near future, but manipulation could also get so wild that miners keep underperforming the metals, even at much higher metal prices. More bankster desperation at much higher metal prices might mean more and more ridiculous miner smashes.

Miners feeling more and more like a tricky play.

Besides that, I think investing in general is fun, but investing in the miners is not so much, in this field. All this stress that comes with the manipulation, am sick of it. With investing in the physical metals markets I experience no stress or at least far less stress, cause we know the banksters can't print the physical metals.

Maybe in the end the miners manipulation will stop working. But not sure we will get our prifits out of the bank by then.
