Neocons and the pro-war mainstream media have nothing to lose when the wars they promote go terribly wrong. This is unique in history. After the predictable disaster, they return to their air conditioned Washington and New York offices while millions suffer and die. That is why why they are able to continue. In the words of today’s Liberty Report guest Nassim Nicholas Taleb, they have no “skin in the game.” The famous author of The Black Swan also lets us in on his thinking about the current state of the US economy and the actions of the Federal Reserve.

On last week’s Silver Doctors SD Metals & Markets I made the case (click here) that silver bottomed on May 10th.  This week, precious metals fund manager Dave Kranzler joined the show to update us on his take on market action and the probability that the so-called “summer doldrums” will go AWOL.  Mr. Kranzler notes:

  • “It smells like desperation”: Is the day of reckoning almost here?
  • Kranzler believes if you don’t have gold, you have a problem…
  • The fund manager reveals his outlook: Don’t expect to find gold and silver bargains in July

Will the ‘Deep State’ war on Trump end up creating a confidence crisis that takes down the stock market?  Jason Burack and Eric Dubin assess the upcoming ‘dog days of summer.’  It’s getting pretty hot in Washington, D.C.

Last Wednesday, I observed signs that the Comex-driven manipulated sell-off in silver was coming to an end (click here) and by Friday (click here), it appeared I was correct.  Time will tell, of course.  I’m reasonably savvy at spotting bottoms, but not so great at being able to recognize when short-term and intermediate-term tops are set – all the more so when manipulation is such a major factor in precious metals.  But it does appear that the carnage is over.  On this week’s Silver Doctors SD Metals and Markets, Doc and I unpack the this week’s trading and place it into a broader context.  Doc is on vacation but he called in on Thursday afternoon to record this week’s show. –  Eric Dubin

Gold and silver have been sold down pretty hard since April 18th. But the structure of the weekly Commitment of Traders report, which shows the long and short positions of the various trader classifications (banks, hedgers, hedge funds, other large investment funds, retail) had been flashing a short term sell signal for the last few weeks.

Fund manager Dave Kranzler joins “Doc” and Eric Dubin to discuss the agressive management of precious metals markets.  This month, Comex silver open interest rocketed past 230,000 contracts as the cartel created new short issuance to match-up against persistent interest among speculators to get long.  The market finally cracked and the cartel has been taking a victory lap and covering their shorts and closing out positions, with Comex OI dipping below 200,000 contracts for the first time in many days.  Kranzler opines on these dynamics and places them into a bigger picture context of very strong worldwide demand.  If you’re in need of a review, click here to catch last week’s show with Craig Hemke for a description on how the shorting operation works.  Tune into this week’s show, below:

 

During this 20+ minute interview Jason asks Bill questions about a global US Dollar shortage, whether China will have to devalue its currency 20-30% to bailout its state owned banks and municipalities, if he is heavily short a lot of stocks yet, how overvalued the stock market is, if the Fed can reduce its ~$4.5 trillion balance sheet and how the economy on Main St is doing with so many retail stores shutting down in 2017.

Dr. Dave Janda welcomes one of the only metals mining industry CEOs with the testicular fortitude willing to address the reality of precious metals market manipulation.  Tune in for Neumeyer’s take on the state of the industry:

Recent trading offers a classic example of how the guardians of the banking and fiat system suppress the price of silver in order to keep gold from rocketing higher and upsetting global markets.  TF MetalsReport.com’s Craig Hemek joins “Doc” and Eric Dubin to dissect this week’s aggressive silver price suppression on this week’s Silver Doctors’ SD Metals & Markets

With cruise missiles flying into Syria and North Korea is in Trump’s crosshairs, what the heck is going on?  Eric Dubin and Jason Burack cut through the geopolitical fog and tie it back to market action.
