    War raging. Dollar soaring. Economy crashing. Lions and tigers and bears, oh my!

    Craig Hemke – TF Metals Report Thursday, April 28, 2022

    “Lions and tigers and bears, indeed. Let’s start with the yen and the POSX, if only since this has been a daily topic of discussion lately. The BoJ massively interceded in the JGB market today in order to defend their 25 basis point ceiling and Yield Curve Control policy. As we’ve been discussing, they are absolutely killing their currency through these efforts and you can see it in the chart…”

        Rick Rule: “Uranium Prices Must Rise, Or Electricity Will Shut Off”

        I Love Prosperity w/ Jake Ducey – April 28, 2022

        “The Uranium Market prices would need to rise (inflation adjusted) to about $80 per pound. Recent reports indicate the USA only has 16 months of uranium storage for utilities. This is setting up to be an epic investing in uranium opportunity. We are getting close to the finale, says Rick Rule.”

        Some Ayn Rand mixed with no acknowledgement of Fiduciary Responsibility. Just thinking …
        Somewhat fatalistic for retail.

          Apr 28, 2022 28:00 PM

          Yeah, Atlas shrugged off that fiduciary responsibility… 😉

            Apr 28, 2022 28:26 PM

            Prophetic … as always.

    The Next Fundamental Catalyst for Gold

    Jordan Roy-Byrne – April 27, 2022

    AEM beat consensus earnings estimates by 70% and is sitting at important support.

      Apr 29, 2022 29:48 AM

      One of the best buys I made was AEM@8 long ago and held on. Then I got more AEM for my shares of Detour Gold. I may never sell AEM but I would not buy anymore either.

    Nice pop in PM’s. Gary Savage called it, correction looks short-lived

      To make money, figure out what the experts and gurus recommend and then do the opposite. For there are no true experts or gurus; only people who want others to believe they are.

        Very much true, Jerry! I followed J Roy-Burne back in 2012-2013 and the guy was always, and I mean always, wrong.

          Apr 29, 2022 29:26 AM

          Hello Norrareal68,

    NSRPF ( NOVO) —Stink bid filled @ $.6388
    SVM ( Silvercorp) — Same @ $2.98

    Apr 29, 2022 29:22 AM

    Just another day like all others.

      Apr 29, 2022 29:46 AM

      Indeed Lake.
      Same old continues nothwithstanding yesterday’s positive hic up.
      The AEM earnings release I was looking forward to, has at least provided some hope for the majors.
      We need them to outperform their gold product rather than lanquish.
      Same with silver already negative. No interest, total apathy except for the cult followers.
      Next week reactions for gold and convential market will be pivotal as to Powell and his babble regarding resolve to rein in inflation.

    I’ve been buying PGE and BBB, Brixton… both oversold.

      Apr 29, 2022 29:37 AM

      I added to Impact and Silver Tiger today.

    Silver down 9 days in a row? What naturally trades like that?

    That being said, back in November-December 2015 when gold put in its secular low, silver was down a whopping 15 days in a row and had an incredible 7 or 8 closes under the lower daily bollinger band (20,2). Talk about unnatural trading. I’ll bet no one can find anything else that has ever traded like that.

      Apr 29, 2022 29:43 AM

      What naturally trades? Nothing as intervention in markets proved profitable for the few and there is no regulation.
