SD Friday Wrap: Gold is relieving the symptoms right now, but very soon the people will realize that if they want the cure, then it’s found in silver…
Been there, done that, got the dang shaft.
Or whatever it is that they say?
Been around the block?
Oh yeah, that too.
Indeed I have.
Here’s an example – cars and trucks.
I like driving them, and I like owning them.
We’ll just exclude the motorcycles for now.
Over the years I’ve owned what I would consider a decent amount of cars and trucks.
I stopped counting after 27, and I’d have a hard time remembering them all if I were asked to write them all down.
I’d get them eventually, but it’d take at least a good hour to recover that data, long since fragmented in the noggin.
I like cars & trucks.
I also like to wear hats.
I’ve gone through school a couple of times, been through war, slung pizzas and myriad jobs and employment over the years.
I’ve been learning all of my life, and I have been working, first “under the table”, since I was old enough to learn to negotiate.
I like hats.
A couple of decades ago, I wore this particular hat when I worked under contract for the CDC as a “Health Communication Specialist” on the National HIV & STD Hotline.
This was at the American Social Health Association, and I’m not even sure if that agency is around anymore, or if the CDC still has a national HIV & STD hotline.
If I had to guess, I would say yes, ASHA is still around, and yes, the CDC still has the national hotline, although whether the hotline is still contracted out to the private sector and who it is contracted out to is another story.
We are talking about decades ago, and a prior job of mine from my days in North Carolina.
For a couple of years (two and-a-half?) I worked the phone lines at ASHA, and whenever the public had questions about AIDS, HIV and/or STD’s, if they called-in to the national toll-free hotline, then I would be one of those happy voices on the other end of line.
I was even cross-trained to take phone calls on the National Immunization Hotline under contract from the National Institutes of Health.
I know, right?
I needed the money.
And I didn’t know any better.
I answered the phones in English and in Spanish, and I was technically what they called a “Health Communication Specialist II”, meaning that I was part of the second tier in the call center, and one of the job roles meant that when callers would say, “can I speak to somebody else” or “can I speak to your supervisor”, well, I was that “supervisor”.
OK, “Hey Half Dollar, nobody cares about your past work experience, so do you have a point here?”.
I have two points.
First of all, I know what I’m talking about when I write about and discuss the Wuhan Coronavirus.
Such as we discussed in today’s Silver Doctors Live:
Secondly, if you want to cut through the noise and get right to the crux of the matter, not so much from the market and economic angles that I take, but from a “public health” angle, then I’d recommend checking-out Chris Martenson‘s updates (over at Peak Prosperity) because he’s been pretty much spot-on.
And I graduated from UNC, so it’s not easy for me to recommend a Dookie!
Here’s the bigger question: Why am I even bringing these two points up?
Well (spoiler alert if you haven’t seen today’s live-stream already), I think that “pandemic hysteria” is about to take hold in society, and in addition to the lies and propaganda coming from the government and the MSM, I think the alt-media will be targeted for “spreading rumors” and, well, you know, spreading “conspiracy theories”.
This blame-game is one of the things we discussed today in our live-stream, and we discussed examples of this very thing happening already, so please check out today’s show if you have not already.
Because whether this is an extinction level event, or nothing more than a pucker moment, there will be very serious negative consequences coming to the markets and the economy brought on by Wuhan Coronavirus ripple effects, and quite frankly, our analysis has been spot on ever since we started covering the Wuhan Coronavirus on Silver Doctors Live on January 20th.
Aside from initially discussing the virus outbreak two Mondays ago, here are the Silver Doctors Live shows with heavy Wuhan Coronavirus focus:
- Jan 24th: Wuhan Virus Outbreak To Trigger Global Economic Collapse?
- Jan 27th: Fed & Government To Calm Fears, Uncertainty In Markets & Economy?
- Jan 29th: Wuhan Coronavirus Effects On Markets & Economy Have Begun
- Jan 31st: MSM To Create Public Panic Over Wuhan Coronavirus Pandemic?
It’s all of them.
We’re on it!
Thanks for your consideration, and please consider joining in on the conversation!
We had several people call-in to today’s show, all with great points and observations.
NOTE: These charts were set-up at approximately 1:30 p.m. EST
Gold could break-out above $1,600 on Sunday evening:
Hundreds of millions of eyeballs will be glued to the boob-tube on Sunday because apparently it’s Superbowl Something-Or-Other, and not only do we know what happens on Sunday evenings, but this Sunday could be extra juicy with the added chaos of a global health crisis.
OK, “Hey Half Dollar, you rootin’ for the economic collapse?”.
Fair question, and no.
I’m rootin’ for a return to the Constitutionally required bi-metallic gold & silver standard, which is the cure to all that monetarily ails us, and since governments and central banks will not return to honest money willingly, we’re gonna have to go through the economic collapse first, and the longer the collapse is actively, artificially retarded, the worse the economic pain will be, so, in reality, to give more of the sheeple a fighting chance, it would be better to just get the economic collapse over with already.
I do not think it’s going to take all year to see the gold-to-silver ratio roll-over:
I must admit that for a while there, I had sunk into the lure of technically analyzing the short-term movements in the gold-to-silver ratio, but the way things are playing out now, fundamentally speaking, I’m starting to think the gold-to-silver ratio will simply crash.
I think the cartel understands silver stackers are not the idiots they thought we were:
The cartel is still mis-judging our intelligence, but they realize they weren’t fooling anybody by trying to make silver look like just another commodity.
It would be nice to see higher trading volume, but it’s looking like the cartel can’t smash the way it’d like to smash right now.
It could be out of spite that they took platinum behind the woodshed:
Platinum will catch a safe haven bid, however, so any weakness here, in my opinion, is a gift.
Palladium will catch a safe haven bid too, but not until gold & platinum outperform palladium:
In the meantime, enjoy watching the cartel slowly but surely losing control, as evidenced by palladium.
Remember: The cartel’s product is unbacked, debt-based fiat currency that they print-up and double-click into existence to their hearts’ content, and the cartel always makes more of its product when it’s suppressing precious metals prices as opposed to letting prices rise, palladium included, so if the cartel could make palladium’s chart look less bullish, it would.
Copper’s not going to stay down for long:
I think the double-bottom holds, in part because the cartel needs the copper miners cranking out product because, if I recall correctly, 60% of silver production comes as a bi-product of base metal mining.
Crude oil is quite the conundrum:
If this Wuhan Coronavirus turns out to be a big deal, then there absolutely could be a net drop in oil demand as the ships stop sailing, the trucks stop rolling and the planes stop flying.
The VIX is signaling the potential for fireworks in the “market” next week:
Many hours of “incubation period” will pass before the markets re-open, and if the number of confirmed Wuhan Coronavirus cases begins to go parabolic?
Furthermore, check-out the Dow, bearishly below it’s 50-day moving average:
We really could plunge right through the 200-day too.
This is all playing into the government’s can-kicking on matters of importance:
Yield on the 10-Year Note is falling fast.
The bearish price action in the US dollar index today is also signaling the potential for free-fall:
Besides, how are the Deep State and Globalists going to bring on maximum pain to the United States in the form of economic misery and financial ruin, in part in the form of pain in the wallet at the gas pump, if crude oil prices are falling?
Crash the US dollar index, and voila – pain at the pump secured!
Yikes again once more!
What’s the bottom line as we find ourselves here this beautiful last day of January in 2020?
Of all the precious metals, it is silver, the people’s money, the cartel fears the most.
So for all of these years, silver has been beaten far worse than its siblings.
In fact, it has been beaten for so long, its defenses are hardened.
The downside from here’s limited, but not what’s important.
What matters is what’s about to happen, globally.
Markets and economies will fall gravely ill.
The people will become so desperate.
They will do anything for a cure.
And yes, they will find it.
The one, true cure.
Found in silver.
