Re: Gold Defensive Strategy

Good interview here. My take away is Robert Friedland thinks all the other metals besides gold will be better investment for inflation going forward. Also a reasonable and convincing voice on aggressive green energy vs the "we are all going to die if we don't go green now". Gold’s High Was Optical: ...

Re: What's going on with silver?

Silver holding its ground better than gold and stocks today.

Everything from bonds, stocks, bitcoin and gold getting sold to cover silver shorts?

Edit:
Yeah nevermind. Silver dropping quicker than anything now.

It looks like Michael Burry sees trouble as well. He doesn't think gold will work but I am not catching what he says will.

Re: Bitcoin as a complement or alternative to gold in the PP

First I think the masses are just buying bitcoin through Robinhood. From what I can tell, you don't really have control of it there. I have never felt great about direct bitcoin holding. It feels very clunky. I don't see the masses ever adopting it in that form so it really isn't so moneyish yet. At...

For a bunch of reasons I'd trade futures if you can swing it. Of interest CME now has Ether futures.

Rhodium

Wow. Rhodium was the bitcoin of metals? Really missed the boat on this one. Were there good etfs?

Was watching an old kitco video about silver joking about rhodium going over 10k and looked it up. Here we are around 20k.

Re: I think it’s time to move into crypto

I was just looking through all the Cryptos and found something called "bitcoin gold".

I was feeling pretty good about getting a little bit but found out the two big exchanges don't even sell it.

No wonder it looked like a better value to me. The masses can't buy it easily.

Re: I think it’s time to move into crypto

I am also contemplating putting no more than 1% net worth into bitcoin if it gets another 50% drop. Not because I think it has any kind of functional future in and of itself but because I want to get in on the apparently legal pyramid scheme. I have started looking at best way to hold them and they ...

Re: Bitcoin On The Move Again

After thinking about it. I figure it is mainly an announcement alerting the public that taxes do need to be paid on crypto gains. Lots of young kids probably honestly didn't know. But second it will give reason to audit real quick if they see you were dishonest. May be I am giving too much credit bu...

I guess I had been of mind set that gold is the easiest access to all of international.

May be IDV would be a good bet?

The fact that there is limited supply of the vaccine is actually making people more likely to want it than if there was enough available for all that initially would have wanted it. Kind of like the toilet paper crisis. The...

Re: It’s Time to Talk About Violent Christian Extremism

Yeah that is BS. Left is so much more authoritarian with religion of "science".

Christians by definition are most moderate people in the world.

They by definition accept that people are flawed.
