Francis Hunt: Gold is Winning Against All Fiat
Tom welcomes back Francis Hunt, Founder of “The Market Sniper” to the show.
Francis discusses the bond market bottom of March 2020 and the series of rate hikes that came afterward. We’re beginning to see the lagging effects of the Feds policy. In addition, there are a series of long-term demographic shifts which are placing great pressure on the system. Both growth and inflation are now moving in the wrong direction, and these contractions will be deeply uncomfortable.
He shows the current gold chart and how it appears we are breaking trend lines. He argues that silver will also outperform, it will just occur in a later secondary phase. Gold against most currencies is nearing new highs. It is winning by doing exactly what it should do.
Francis discusses where silver will head under various scenarios. The markets today are entirely different from what we had in the 1980s. No one has ever lived in an era like the one we find ourselves in today.
The purpose of CBDC’s is to create reliance on the state. It is a massive control mechanism. You will want to watch out for new dangerous laws because we’re dealing with psychopathic, motivated, and relentless control freaks.
He discusses the positives and potential pitfalls of crypto markets in the coming financial system.
Bonds are unlikely to drop to the lows of a couple of years ago. It seems likely we are in new territory, but a pullback to the two percent level is possible. We’re entering a period of slowing growth and reduced demand, which is affecting the oil markets.
Lastly, Francis discusses where markets will likely head based on the ten-year treasury outlook, and it’s recent record. Finally, he notes that energy is forecasting hard times ahead.

Francis is a trader, first and foremost. Unlike most educators in the trading space, Francis walks the walk and talks the talk, with 30 years of experience trading his personal capital on various markets and instruments. Through this passion for trading and his relentless study of markets and economic theory, he uses the Hunt Volatility Funnel trading methodology, a systemized approach, to answer the critical question: What is the next most profitable trade?
He believes the actual price of an asset is the most accurate reflection of all the factors that influence it. Practical technical analysis, the study of price action over time, is needed to formulate profitable trade ideas. Indeed, with all the market manipulation and high-frequency trading operations currently in play, technical analysis is all that can be relied upon when it comes to formulating future price trends. A trained eye can often spot such manipulative practices, as is the case with HVF traders. Therefore, the HVF methodology is based purely on technical analysis.
Francis is passionate about sharing his knowledge and understanding of markets by utilizing his HVF trading methodology. With entertaining anecdotes and the careful guidance of his students, he has already trained a large community of hundreds of traders and helped them transform from complete newbies to seasoned trading professionals.
He genuinely loves sharing his knowledge and strategies with others who are committed to finding freedom through trading. Plus, teaching strengthens his trading abilities while helping to build a vibrant community of successful traders.
