Rick Rule – Listener Q&A: You Have To Own Gold BECAUSE It Hasn’t Performed Yet!

Tom welcomes back the legendary investor Rick Rule to answer Palisade Radio listener questions.

Rick discusses the importance of understanding the different stages of a bull market and the potential opportunities with mining companies. He also emphasizes the need to mitigate risk when investing in junior mining companies.

Mr. Rule advises against expecting massive gains and instead encourages taking advantage of low-risk investments that can provide over 100% returns. He believes in maintaining liquidity in order to take advantage of market downturns.

In terms of shorting stocks, Rick prefers to only short obvious frauds and generally warns against shorting popular sectors without understanding the risks involved.

Rick also emphasizes the importance of education and preparation in investing and discusses his various educational initiatives.

Rick is involved in the creation of Battle Bank, and notes it is designed to cater to those with contrarian libertarian beliefs.

He believes it is inevitable that futures trading (Comex/Shanghai/LBMA) will become decentralized and blockchain based.
