Steven Tremblay: Silver Supply is Inelastic and Ready to Slingshot
Tom welcomes Steven Tremblay to the show. Steven is a private investor whose tagline on Twitter is, “I am an investor that strongly believes we are in the biggest debt bubble in the history of mankind. I am a strong believer in gold, silver, and health.”
Steven points out that silver is synonymous with money in many countries around the world. It has many uses in electronics, industry, and medicine, and it’s a miracle metal for him. Silver should come back as a monetary metal, and there are those with ideas on how to blend the benefits of cryptocurrencies with silver.
He discusses the typical ratios for silver in the earth’s crust and gold’s historic monetary ratio to silver. Carefully watching these asset ratios can be useful instead of just measuring against devaluing currencies. Silver’s price is inelastic, which means production can’t be ramped up quickly when the price rises. This is because most silver is mined as a secondary metal (by-product) and usually represents only a fraction of a mine’s revenue.
Carefully watching the ratios including between platinum and palladium and trading these could be an excellent method of building generational wealth. He suggests that investors always have some metal exposure in their portfolios by moving between those with the best value ratio.
He likes the ETF’s for precious metals exposure along with royalty companies because of the relative safety of these investment approaches. These larger baskets of companies can reduce your overall exposure to the risky business of mining.
Lastly, he outlines his entry levels for ETF’s and provides some tips for building a good portfolio. Steven talks about why price and volume are the most critical factors in the charts.
