GOLD, SILVER, COPPER, AND HARD ASSETS…2019

This is a late continuation of the predecessor thread titled: “Gold, Silver, and Hard Assets…FALL 2017”…from which, I quote: “Everyone makes mistakes and I make more than my share.”  Well, I nailed that one. In 2018, overall my picks were not successful.  Many of the mining speculations were duds. Plus the commodity price landscape was […]

Gold, Silver, Copper, and Hard Assets…Fall 2017

This is a continuation of the predecessor thread titled: “Gold, Silver, and Hard Assets…Summer 2017”. After my lengthy introduction, guidelines, disclosures, position summary,and warning notices, I will re-submit some meaty posts on Ivanhoe Mines which I think deserve attention and provide a timely change of emphasis; and I will also summarize the findings from the […]

That achievement makes a nice breakpoint for a new thread continuation on hard assets, which I introduce herewith. This thread is a continuation of threads posted previously by the author on gold and silver and hard asset investments. It incorporates […]

WHY HELICOPTER MONEY IS BETTER THAN FED EASING

WHY HELICOPTER MONEY IS BETTER THAN FED EASING The term “helicopter money” has been used to suggest direct cash subsidies to the population as a possible method of monetary stimulus. It was s sardonically suggested as an alternative to Quantitative Easing (“QE”), as it is currently practiced through bank and institutional monetary mechanisms. QE is […]

LET”S MAKE ICELAND THE 51st STATE

The US government and the hedge funds really missed it in the last financial crisis. In 2008 Iceland went bankrupt because they had external debt of $50 billion dollars. Hey, the US Treasury should have just fired up the printing presses for a few hours and bought the whole darned country. When the next crisis […]

NEGATIVE INTEREST RATES: WHAT IF ?

Recently there has appeared economic policy discussions about NEGATIVE INTEREST RATES. This is the first time in my life that I have ever heard of this concept, and I know of no historical precedent for it. It seems to be a theoretical construct of policymakers who are desperate to ”stimulate the economy” and are following […]

Dow top at 18191.10 for three hours ?

Was watching this morning very closely…anyone notice the flat-top Dow pattern from about 9:45 to 12:15? Never saw anything like it, on a five minute chart there would be fallbacks that would top out precisely at 18191.10, lasted about three hours…anyone got an idea how or why this could happen ??

This type of company, I think it is best to buy and forget about it. They are almost impossible to follow on a week to week basis...there is usually no news and it is a long-term long shot. It's not like a miner who may hit a rich deposit at any moment...y[...]

Hi all. As an opening post I think it is appropriate to highlight Sandstorm Gold, a royalty company that is my core gold position. While we cannot predict any more than anyone else about the future of the gold price, I would like to recap my major reasons [...]

Thanks Griffin. What persuaded me on MUX was Los Azules, the copper project. It seems to be on the back burner but when copper goes up they will be ready to move forward...it will be three years to build, plus whatever is left of two year prep work they [...]

Absolutely makes you sit up and take notice...I have always been very careful to specify that $SRI is really a speculation and that I cannot recommend it to other casual investors. It is really a SPECULATION. If you search in my posts, I have always sta[...]

It is mind-blowing how much copper is in the total complex. I predicted that this deposit would wind up being the largest copper mine in the world, ever. Past or present. I think the new discovery will accomplish the fulfillment of that speculation[...]
