Jim Willie of Golden-Jackass interviewed by Half Dollar for SD Bullion

Silver and gold prices were beaten down for most the week with the sharpest selloffs occurring yesterday around 8:30 AM morning eastern time.

The spot silver price is closing the week around $15.20 an ounce while the gold spot price is closing around $1,294 fiat US dollars per troy ounce.

The Gold Silver Ratio is now nearing a more than 25 year high level above 85.

The palladium spot price saw a massive selloff dropping nearly $200 US dollars per troy ounce this week. Palladium appears to be closing around $1,388 fiat Federal Reserve notes per ounce. Not much has changed fundamentally for dwindled tight palladium supply levels, so it will be interesting to see how long it takes for palladium to retrace the spot price losses we witnessed this week.

Finally, the over the counter platinum price again remains floundering around the $850 oz USD range, close to where it ended last week. We are still hovering around the cheapest platinum vs gold price in over 110 years of time.

Moving on to this week’s guest to the show. It has been almost a full year since we last spoke with Jim Willie, author of the Hat Trick Letter and purveyor of Golden-Jackass.com.

Silver Doctor’s own Paul “Half Dollar” Eberhart spoke with Jim at length today. We will break this discussion up into two parts. Part one is below.
