Bob Moriarty: No Brains Needed for Gold Bull
Tom welcomes Robert Moriarty to the program. Bob tells us how he really feels about the economic damage caused by the lockdown and the reaction to the virus. He says, “The tests are testing for any coronavirus, so the numbers are totally bogus.” Over 50 million people have lost their jobs, and numerous businesses are closing permanently. Mathematically the debt can’t be repaid, and the economic damage occurring is far worse due to the lockdown than the virus.
He discusses the CDC dictate that deferred rents and prevented evictions. The government has taken a bomb and blown up the economy, saying, “it’s for your own good.. what they are doing is totally insane.”
Bob discusses paper-trading in the commodity markets and why these markets don’t trade physical products. He believes there is no shortage of gold and silver and that the only thing that matters is what someone will pay for it. Therefore, you can’t have a Comex default.
To be a good trader, all you need to know is that the mob is always wrong, and you need to understand human behavior. Corrections are normal, and investor sentiment indicators are useful when they reach extremes. He advises on when to buy and sell stocks based on their liquidity.
In hyperinflation, the nominal value for gold or shares might be mostly meaningless because the money will be worthless. You will see things that will knock your socks off politically, and when the gold market gets going, things will get stupid.
Bob gives his thoughts on New Found Gold and Dr. Quinton’s geological talents for discovery.
Lastly, he discusses the collapsing political system in America and the illusion of choice.
