Twitter Spaces: One Recession Away from a Dramatic Dollar Drop
Bob begins the conversation by discussing the collapse of premiums and lack of sentiment in the market causing buyers to become disillusioned. Prices are decreasing across the board, making production upgrades increasingly difficult. The US Mint is not supposed to produce profit, however, large merchants such as APMEX are still charging premiums to small buyers.
Steve St. Angelo explains how the gold and silver markets have transformed over the past twenty years. ETFs now hold a lot of silver and industrial demand is very low. It’s mainly institutional demand driving the price and when that shifts it will move. Blackrock is the largest holder of PSLV.
Steve believes we are heading towards an energy cliff that will cause inflation. Stocks, bonds, and real estate may fall affecting institutions who will invest in alternatives. Silver is on sale around the twenty mark according to Bob. Steve notes that the dynamics in the metal production industry are rapidly changing.
Jaime Carrasco explains why he likes silver, noting price is correcting the imbalance between silver and copper. The US dollar will be weak due to a reduction in trade associated with the BRICS objectives. This will remove the manipulation of gold and silver. Steve later discusses the energy problems looming.
