Not merely a returning guest, but a returning original host of this SD Metals & Markets podcast.
Eric Dubin drops by to talk financial markets and some of the craziest news from this week.
Such as a more than 23 yr employee and the up until last month, the global head of JP Morgan’s precious metal trading desk has been on a leave of absence from work. We ponder what that might mean as the US Department of Justice continues its investigation of financial crimes committed for more than a decade at that bank’s derivatives trading desks.
President Trump tweeted on 9/11 for the Fed to cut not just to Zero percent but even nominal Negative Interest Rates ahead. If you think gold loves negative real rates, just imagine what nominal negative rates in the USA could do to the over-leverage gold derivative complex.
Those topics and more covered in this week's Metals & Markets bullion podcast.
Is gold now leading a coming commodity value reversion? How does this commodity undervaluation versus stocks look over the last +100 years of time?
Why have silver values decoupled from stock price inflation? A once obvious correlation fell apart after the 2008 financial crisis. Is outsized stock market financial engineering using debt and equity share buybacks to blame?
What does the "In Gold We Trust" team think about recent strength in monetary precious metal values? How does Exter's Pyramid factor into the potential gold mania phase ahead?
Ronnie Stoeferle returns to our far-ranging silver and gold podcast this week.
This past Wednesday before the Federal Reserve cut interest rates for the first time in over a decade, and we had the pleasure of speaking with Jeffrey Christian of CPM Group about a whole host of topics.
We cover what, in his experience, are the key ingredients for silver bullion bull markets of the past and potential future.
We also go back in time as Jeffrey recollects his experience as a journalist covering the Hunt Brothers in the late 1970s commodity bull markets.
Hear Mr. Christian and CPM Group's gold and silver price forecasts for the coming years, as the global financial system is perhaps in the worst shape it has been since World War 2.
Time to take a long view out for the next coming bull market in commodities and these two precious metals: silver and gold.
We speak with Jordan Roy Byrne about his Gold Price Forecast 2020s 2030s and Silver Price Forecast 2020s 2030s.
Wait until you see the extensive timeframes and data he uses in helping to potentially pinpoint when the next bull markets in commodities and precious metals are coming. And for how long they will last before topping out.
Finally, and very importantly, we go into detail as to the "Whys" for his analysis. If you are a bullion stacker, with a long-term perspective, don't miss this week's precious metals podcast.
This week, our returning guest Christopher Aaron of iGold Advisor takes us through some past moments when overly optimistic precious metal viewpoints got crushed.
We juxtapose some of his fundamental and technical analysis work overlaying it to today’s technical and fundamental backdrops for bullion, precious metal related investments, and even the future of the broad commodity complex in general.
Is this a potential gold price breakout fakeout? Perhaps keying on one of the climbing gold-silver ratios of the past may give some pause to bullion bulls. See and hear what our guest has to say in this week's bullion podcast.
The gold-silver ratio finally cleared and closed above the near 30-year high-level mark, with it now costing about 90 ounces of silver to acquire 1 ounce of gold. In the coming months and year, we’ll likely find out if this crucial ratio can distort to record levels over 100, reached only during the 1930s Great Depression.
Get a big picture tour of the US and global economy from a returning guest, Mr. David Jensen of Jensen Strategic consulting.
If you are perhaps a big chart and data person, or someone who subscribes to more common sense economic theories, you won’t want to miss Dave’s contributions to this week’s podcast.
We are going to look at some details regarding the Russian Federation’s building gold reserves, now having just passed the 2,000 tonne gold bullion total.
We are going to cover a bit of background on how this Russian gold buying policy was partially brought about. We’re going to show much gold bullion Russia officially has compare to other major gold players in the world.
And finally we’re going to look at how “gold backed’ the Russian ruble currency currently is, compared to other major fiat currencies such as the US dollar, euro, yen, British pound, Chinese yuan, and Swiss franc.
If you have been using Youtube over the years to consume precious metal related content, chances are you know that there is a robust stacker community of Youtube channels.
These bullion related Youtube channels cover everything from product unboxing videos, to bullion sales community updates, to precious metals market related coverage.
This week’s guest is one such Youtube channel operator. He goes by the moniker 'Salivate Metal' and his Youtube channel has been a good balanced source for precious metal related content over the last +5 years.
If you have never heard Chris Irons or his Quoth the Raven podcast, you may not know that he often uses colorful rated R language when he speaks about the financial markets. Rather than fill this audio with a bunch of bleeps and language censorship, I have decided to simply let the audio play as was recorded.
Do not listen to this podcast if you are offended by language you might hear in a Rated R film. Do not listen to this podcast aloud around children.
Do indeed listen to this podcast if adult language does not offend you. Do listen if you are interested in hearing someone explicitly speak about how they view financial markets currently.
This week, we have a new guest on the Metals & Markets podcast. A man who has first hand experience both in intervening and quelling currency crises throughout his career.
Steve H. Hanke, a Professor of Applied Economics and Co-Director of The Johns Hopkins Institute for Applied Economics, Global Health, and the Study of Business Enterprise.
Professor Hanke served on President Reagan’s Council of Economic Advisers, has been an adviser to 5 foreign heads of state and 5 foreign cabinet ministers, and held a cabinet-level rank in both Lithuania and Montenegro.
Come hear what the professor has to say about where the US government is potentially headed with this record debt and unfunded liability pile growing.
With us this week, a new guest, who will take us back in time to his beginning days in the 1980s COMEX NYMEX futures contract trading pits all the way back to today.
We also discuss current ongoings with the US dollar, the euro, crude oil prices, growing Federal and consumer debt levels, especially in relation to the recent inversion of shorter term US bonds vs longer duration IOUs.
As well we’ll discuss both his up, and potential downsides for gold prices in the coming years. Our guest's commentary on silver, platinum, and palladium are all worthwhile hearing as well.
If you’ve been following Elon Musk and the domestic car company Tesla over the years you likely know that from about 2010 to 2017, the company and its CEO Elon Musk have basically been financial media darlings who could do no wrong.
Yet Tesla Motors may have just become this stock bubble’s poster child for overvaluation and hype.
As US interest rates continue to increase, we can expect other hot tech story stocks like Tesla will be finding rougher times ahead, while various commodities and precious metals again get their time to shine.
