    Off The Cuff: When The Game Of Musical Chairs Ends

    There are WAY too many who expect they can exit unscathed
    by Adam Taggart

    In this week’s Off The Cuff I sit down with Jeff Clark to discuss:

    • The fallacy hedge funds are operating under
    • The silver squeeze: what’s happening now?
    • The status of the PM mining industry
    • Jeff shares a mining stock he particularly likes right now

    Right now the market is full of investors (= speculators) who are committed to “dancing while the music is playing”.

    When asked about the current concerning and historic levels of (over)valuation, they reveal their strategy is to be one of the first out of the door when the music stops. They ignore, of course, that mathematically EVERYONE can’t be the first.

    Jeff Clark, GoldSilver.com’s senior analyst, sees this and many other familiar echoes of the irrational exuberance that existed right up until the system broke in 2008, ushering in the Great Financial Crisis.

    And while history may not repeat exactly, it often does rhyme. Jeff shares with us his predictions going forward for the markets, the precious metals, and the PM mining industry:

    Off The Cuff: Defending Against Fiat Currency’s Demise

    Addressing the hard choices forced by the 'Everything Bubble'
    by Adam Taggart

    In this week’s Off The Cuff I sit down with John Rubino to discuss:

    • Why the #silversqueeze still matters
    • The massive remaining upside for precious metals
    • Why the ‘Everything Bubble’ is our most complicated crisis ever
    • Steps investors can take to defend against the demise of fiat currencies

    Despite #silversqueeze being little more than a flash in the pan media-wise, it’s lasting implications are proving quite substantial.

    Retail silver inventory remains exceptionally tight, and premiums remain very high. While the Reddit-sources buyers came and went quickly, the hoopla brought the topic of sound money to many new ears, and precious metals dealers are still seeing a sustained influx of first-time purchases from new buyers who have decided that adding a little gold and silver to their portfolios is a wise move.

    This shift in market sentiment towards bullion, especially silver, is helping set the stage for a potentially serious supply shortage ahead should another buying blitz occur.

    Of course, the arguments for owning bullion are driven by the dynamics of the Everything Bubble the world now finds itself in, where global fiat currencies are being rapidly devalued in a futile attempt to keep the system from collapsing.

    So the endgame looks clearly like a currency crisis — meaning you want to be positioned in assets that will survive inflation. Of course, should the markets correct substantially on the path there (as venerated experts like Jeremy Grantham are warning could happen within the next few months), cash would be a safe place to be when that happens.

    How can today’s investors resolve those two opposing — yet both intelligent — strategies?

    Ron Paul: THIS Worries Me Much More Than Covid

    More government intervention makes every problem worse

    If you’re concerned about the overreach of government in juicing asset prices to dangerous levels, picking economic winner and losers, and constraining our personal freedoms — you have very good right to be.

    So says lifelong champion of free markets, sound money and civil liberty, former US Congressman Dr Ron Paul.

    Gold’s (And Silver’s!) Time Has Arrived

    Are you well-positioned for it?
    by Adam Taggart

    2020 has proven to be a year unlike any other. It has shaken our confidence in our economic, financial, political and social systems — proving them to be a lot less stable than we’d previously assumed.

    Gold’s re-pricing is reflecting that realization. The big question is: How much more uncertainty remains ahead?

    As we committed to last week, this week’s video focuses on the precious metals and the exceptional performance gold is exhibiting right now after many years of disappointing returns.

    ALERT: Reallocating (Some) Cash Due To Inflation Concerns

    A move from paper to tangible feels warranted
    by Adam Taggart

    Friday, May 8, 2020, 8:09 PM

    This is an official Peak Prosperity ALERT. We don’t issue alerts very often — only when Chris or I are taking personal action in our own lives in response to recent developments.

    The last alert we issued was on January 23 in response to the concerning pandemic threat we identified (quite early and accurately, I may add). You know what followed after that.

    Well, today I took action in my own financial portfolio that I deem important enough to share with our premium subscribers.

    Specifically, I’m beginning the process of reducing my cash reserves — which have comprised the majority of my portfolio — and exchanging it for inflation-resistant assets.

    Why am I doing this now and what exactly am I exchanging this cash for?

    The trigger that caught my attention was…. (Enroll now to continue reading)

    What’s Causing The Gold & Silver Sell-off?

    And when will prices turn around?
    by Jeff Clark

    Tuesday, March 17, 2020, 1:02 PM

    Most investors know that gold represents wealth. And that it can be one of the most effective hedges against economic and financial turmoil.

    It sure doesn’t feel that way right now. Not only has their volatility spiked, neither metal has logged a gain since the Coronavirus was first widely reported on January 1. As I write on March 17, gold is down about 1%, while silver has crashed 30%.

    Why are they performing so poorly? Are they really not crisis hedges?

    There are answers to these questions. And when one looks at history we can even get a hint about when it will all turn around.
