Jason Burack of Wall St for Main St interviewed first time guest, Senior Precious Metals Analyst at GoldSilver.com, Jeff Clark. Jeff was a former mining analyst and newsletter writer at Casey Research where he wrote the Big Gold investment newsletter.

Jeff writes a gold market newsletter for GoldSilver.com and his also writes articles for their blog https://goldsilver.com/blog/

Here's some of the questions and topics Jason asks Jeff about during this 30+ minute interview:

1) There was record physical gold withdrawals in November 2016 and February 2017 from the Shanghai Gold Exchange yet many mainstream gold organizations like the World Gold Council, GFMS, etc claim gold demand is weak. What's your take on demand for physical gold globally?

2) The gold to silver ratio is around 71. Do you think this means that silver is the better long term value relative to gold at this point?

3) I want to talk about the primary gold and silver mining industry. Do you think that in general the industry has done a good job at cutting costs in order to survive since gold hit $1900 and silver hit $48 in 2011 and a cyclical bear market started?

4) In December 2016, Bloomberg ran a story showing how primary gold miners are running out of economic gold reserves https://www.bloomberg.com/ news/articles/2016-12-21/gold- miners-are-running-out-of- metal-five-charts-explaining- why

Do you think the industry can replace reserves at current gold and silver prices or will gold and silver prices have to go substantially higher to maintain current production levels and also to replace mined/depleted reserves?

5) Can primary gold and silver miners significantly cut more costs without shutting down mines or going bankrupt?

6) The CEO of Franco Nevada recently said that it will almost be impossible for the gold mining industry to grow production beyond current production levels. Do you agree with him? https://www.bloomberg.com/ news/articles/2017-03-01/gold- miners-running-to-stand-still- after-cuts-franco-ceo-says

7) Large gold mining companies like Barrick Gold, Newmont Mining and Goldcorp have written off their proven and probable gold reserves since 2012. Reserves have declined to 61%, 62% and 69% of the 2012 heydays. Is the gold mining industry facing very difficult supply problems now and in the future?

Jason Burack of Wall St for Main St interviewed returning guest, President of the Energy Prospectus Group http://energyprospectus.com/ for oil & natural gas investors, Dan Steffens. Dan has over 20 years experience working in the oil and gas industry.

Dan has produced many winning oil investments for growth investors and also for income investors.

During this 25+ minute interview, Jason start off by asking Dan if President Trump has done any pro oil or pro energy things in his 6 weeks in office?

Dan says it hasn't happened yet but Trump's corporate tax cuts will also benefit the oil and gas industry once they are implemented.

Next, Jason asks Dan about the inventory increases in gasoline in the US? Dan says it's not a sign of a massive supply glut and he points out how there's been absolutely enormous (hundreds of billions of dollars) in capex cuts for the oil industry to bring on new long lead time projects and find new oil reserves.

Jason also asks Dan about the margins of onshore independent oil producers like EOG Resources and what margin they have at current WTI prices?

Dan gives out some oil and natural gas stocks he likes with good valuations and also good growth and he offers Wall St for Main St listeners $100 off an Energy Prospectus Group membership and a free month's copy of his newsletter if they email him!

Louis Cammarosano (Smaulgld): Gold & Silver Mining Shares Mania is Coming

Jason Burack of Wall St for Main St interviewed returning guest, gold and silver expert, former Wall St lawyer and former Silicon Valley executive, Louis Cammarosano of Smaulgld https://smaulgld.com/

Louis' bio can be found here: https://smaulgld.com/about

During this 40+ minute interview, Jason starts off by asking Louis about his views on why the Federal Reserve monitors the Dollar Index so closely?

Louis talks about how the Federal Reserve has been able to keep the Dollar Index strong despite doing QE programs with a lot of careful comments put out in public. Louis thinks the Federal Reserve will only announce its next QE programs if the Dollar Index isn't falling.

Jason and Louis then discuss the global economy and the liquidity injections from a number of central banks.

Next, Jason asks Louis why he thinks there was a paper bear market in gold and silver from 2011 until the end of 2015?

Louis talks about how the East bought massive amounts of physical gold while the paper price continued to fall. Jason asks Louis about negative interest rates playing a major part in the rally for gold and silver and mining shares?

Louis thinks there will be a long mania in gold and silver mining shares going forward. Jason asks if the miners problems with raising capital and potentially shutting down mines ended the bear market in 2015?

Louis doesn't think we are at gold or silver prices where a low of new gold and silver mines will be built and he thinks miners are in a real sweet spot as far as their margins go unless oil prices rise substantially, the miners can't control costs or bring on higher cost production and let their margins slip away or governments increase taxes on miner.

Jason and Louis think miners could have excellent margins for a number of years now unless those things happen.

To wrap up the interview, Jason asks Louis about Alan Greenspan's positive comments on gold and his warnings about how much inflation is already in asset markets and the US' economy.

Jason and Louis also discuss what can end a gold and silver bull market?

Next, Jason asks Ronnie since he lives and works in Lichtenstein if he has visited large Swiss gold refiners to inquire about their problems of sourcing physical gold in large tonnage orders?

Ronnie says he had indeed visited large Swiss gold refiners recently and the problems sourcing larger orders of physical gold to refine are indeed real.

To wrap up the interview, Jason and Ronnie discuss how to diversify your physical gold and gold stock holdings and how to research gold stocks to avoid common pitfalls or red flags.

Jul 4, 2016

Jason Burack of Wall St for Main St interviewed first time guest, former investment banker and gold stock newsletter writer http://www.miningstocks.com/, Jay Taylor.

Jay hosts the 1 hour radio show, Turning Hard Times into Good Times http://jaytaylormedia.com// and has been writing his paid investment newsletter on gold, energy and technology stocks for 35 years!

During this 40+ minute interview, Jason starts by asking Jay how he found the Austrian School of Economics and why he likes it?

Jay talks about the US going off the international gold standard in 1971 and how it affected him and markets. Jay talks about the PhD Economists at the Federal Reserve and how they are obsessed with high stock prices starting with Alan Greenspan in 1987.

Jay talks about the hypocrisy of Alan Greenspan at length.

Jason and Jay talk about the fundamental problems in the global economy and how there's malinvestment everywhere. Jay thinks there will be really bad inflation coming, then a total collapse and deflation after the inflation is over.

Jason then asks Jay about a stock market crash and Jay talks about how the Federal Reserve and the Plunge Protection Team have prevented the stock market from crashing for years.

Jay then talks about why he owns gold and how he is not particular happy if the gold price rises a lot because it means the economy is collapsing, currencies are collapsing, etc.

Jason then asks Jay about the gold mining industry and if the industry has done a good job cutting costs since 2011?

Jay says the industry was forced to cut costs in order to survive and stave off bankruptcy since 2011. Jay thinks junior gold miners and junior gold explorers will drastically outperform producing gold mining companies and that they are more efficiently run companies compared to big, bloated, wasteful, inefficient large cap miners run as bureaucracies.

Jay also gives one or two of his favorite junior gold stock picks!

Dave Skarica: A New Commodities Bubble is Starting?

Jason Burack of Wall St for Main St interviewed hedge fund manager, author and newsletter writer of Addicted to Profits http://addictedtoprofits.net/, Dave Skarica.

During this hour+ long interview, Jason starts off by asking Dave about his book Collapse! he wrote in 2014 and why the stock market hasn't collapsed?

Dave talks about the global economy and how different central banks are trying to keep the party going and fueling asset bubbles, etc.

Dave thinks if the stock market crashes before the November 2016 election that it guarantees a win for Donald Trump in the election.

Next, Jason asks Dave about legendary investor Sir John Templeton since Jason and Dave have both studied the investments and career of John Templeton. Jason asks Dave what Templeton would have been buying the last year or so and what Templeton would have been shorting using his investing methodology if Templeton were still alive? Dave says Templeton made a fortune investing in copper and base metal miners when they were very cheap in the mid-late 1990s and Templeton probably would have been buying gold stocks and other resource stocks in the last year because many were at the point of maximum pessimism.

Jason and Dave discuss the gold mining industry and why gold has had a rally since December.

Dave thinks ultimately all global central bankers are trapped and there will be a worse stagflation coming. He also thinks central banks will unintentionally create a new commodities bubble as central banks attempt to devalue their fiat currencies.

Jordan Roy Byrne: You May Have Missed The Buying Opportunity of a Lifetime in Gold Stocks

Jason Burack of Wall St for Main St interviewed returning guest, Certified Market Technician (CMT) and editor of The Daily Goldhttp://thedailygold.com/, Jordan Roy-Byrne. Jordan has about a decade of experience investing and trading stocks especially gold stocks and commodities stocks.

During this 35+ minute interview, Jason starts off by asking Jordan why he thinks gold started to rally in December 2015/January 2016 after a long and painful cyclical bear market since 2011?

Jordan talks about how there's negative interest rates now and how central bankers seem to want interest rates to go further negative. Jordan talks about how in past gold bull markets interest rates were also negative. This includes the past gold bull markets during the 1940s and the 1970s when Paul Volcker was raising interest rates sky high. Jordan says Paul Volcker was not able to raise rates fast enough to keep up with the inflation rate rising so that's why rates were still negative then.

Jason and Jordan then have a very long, in depth discussion about gold miners and why the industry has improving fundamentals.

To wrap up the interview, Jordan names a few of his favorite, profitable gold stocks WS4MS listeners should watch and think about accumulating on dips.

Jason Burack of Wall St for Main St and managing editor of The News Doctorshttp://thenewsdoctors.com/ and independent financial journalist, Eric Dubin are back for episode #18 of the Welcome to Dystopia podcast.

BIG NEWS IN THE PRECIOUS METALS MARKETS IS THE SPROTT PHYSICAL SILVER TRUST OR PSLV IS BUYING $75 MILLION WORTH OF MORE PHYSICAL SILVER! https://finance.yahoo.com/news/sprott...

Jason and Eric discuss what this purchase means for the silver market and that a lot of silver supply could be offline in the next few years because of low base metal prices. A lot of the annual silver production (more than 60%) is from base metal mines as by-product.

French investment bank, Societe General (Soc Gen) predicts silver supply will fall by 9% in 2016 and by 13% in 2017 due to low base metal prices.

Eric and Jason also discuss gold and silver mining share.

Next, Jason and Eric discuss the Panama Papers leak and what motives are really behind it? Eric suggests listeners read this article: http://thenewsdoctors.com/panama-pape...

Scumbag Nominees:
1) TSA for wasting $1.4 million on an IPAD app for airport arrows telling you right or left for which line for pat downs or body scanners (how wasteful!)
2) President Maduro of Venezuela- for his communist/Marxist policies and the hyperinflation and murders and corruption that big government is destroying Venezuela.

David Morgan: Sprott Silver Purchase Perfect Timing?

Jason Burack of Wall St for Main St interviewed returning guest, the silver guru, David Morgan of The Morgan Report http://www.themorganreport.com/.

TheMorganReport.com [Get the Free Report 'Riches in Resources']

David has decades of market experience working in the financial industry and investing and trading markets. David has also written 2 books about silver, the Skinny on Silver and his new book, Silver Manifesto.

David is also the CEO of a new precious metals royalty and streaming company, Lemuria Royalty.

Purchase the Silver Manifesto here: http://www.amazon.com/Silver-Manifest...
http://www.audible.com/pd/Business/Th...

During this 35+ minute interview, Jason asks David about the recent announcement from the Sprott Physical Silver Trust (PSLV) that they are buying approximately 5 million oz of physical silver to add to the trust.

Jason asks David if the timing of the announcement was perfect to counter the negative commitment of traders (COT) reports on gold and silver?

David thinks Sprott timed this purchase perfectly. Jason asks David how difficult it is to source 5 million oz of physical silver?

David talks about the physical silver market and how the silver market is decided at the margin.

Jason and David also discuss the additional silver purchases PSLV can make in the future?

Next, Jason asks David about the BREAKING NEWS in the precious metals space about Deutsche Bank admitting it manipulated gold and silver markets, paying a settlement, cooperating and handing over evidence and also helping implicate other conspirators (big bullion banks) who helped manipulate gold and silver.

Story here: http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-04...

David and Jason confirm this is the story Rob Kirby was hinting at for months. (Jason also emailed Rob Kirby before the interview to confirm this was the story he was hinting at).

David thinks this story may open up Pandora's box as more evidence in the form of years worth of emails, instant messages and other forms of communication is handed over by DB to help implicate other banks.

Jason then asks David about the Soc Gen report saying silver supply will decrease by 9% in 2016 and by 13% in 2017 and if he thinks that research is accurate?

David says he thinks it's pretty accurate but he and Chris Marchese will look at it more closely in a future edition of their paid monthly newsletter, The Morgan Report.

To wrap up the interview, Jason and David talk abou

Mar 18, 2016

Jason Burack of Wall St for Main St interviewed returning guest, mining stock expert http://www.goldsilverdata.com/ and author of How to Invest in Gold and Silver: A Complete Guide with a Focus on Mining Stocks, Don Durrett.

During this 30+ minute interview, Jason asks Don why Gold's fundamentals are improving and why big money managers on Wall St are suddenly buying gold?

Don talks about how the US economy is getting worse and how the threat of negative interest rate policy and the stock market rolling over is causing the fear trade to explode. Don says the fear trade is fueling investors to go into cash and gold.

Next, Jason asks Don about the big move in gold stocks and if the bull market has returned?

Don doesn't think the gold and silver bull market has returned until gold clear overhead resistance levels of 1280 and 1308 for gold.

Jason and Don discuss the pitfalls of investing in gold and silver companies and the latest news about the industry.

Dave Kranzler: Gold Stocks Looking Attractive Again

Jason Burack of Wall St for Main St had on returning guest, former Wall St bond trader, investment analyst, gold fund manager, founder of Investment Research Dynamics http://investmentresearchdynamics.com/ and co-creator of the popular Shadow of Truth podcast with Rory Hall, Dave Kranzler.

Dave worked on Wall St for over 2 decades and his articles on Investment Research Dynamics are normally well written and quite insightful about the global economy, gold market, etc.

During this 30+ minute interview, Jason asks Dave about the state of the global economy and if it's one big mess? Dave says calling the global economy a mess implies that things can be cleaned up and he believes things cannot be cleaned up. Dave expects a depression at least as bad as the 1929 Great Depression in the near future.

Jason then asks Dave about the recent rally in stocks, copper, oil and base metals and if it was a short covering rally or if the bottom in oil is real?

Dave thinks this recent rally in oil, copper, etc is 100% a bear market rally or short covering rally without any fundamental justification.

Jason then asks Dave about the banks exposure to the oil market?

Dave thinks the banks are lying to keep larger oil companies from going bankrupt and to make bank balance sheets appear much better than reality.

Next, Jason asks Dave how he finds good shorting ideas for his new paid newsletter, Short Seller's Journal. Dave says he looks for macro trends where entire industries bomb earnings and Dave looks for the worst companies of an industry to short. Jason ans Dave then discuss why many prominent value investors also short companies besides buying bargain value stocks.

To wrap up the interview Jason asks Dave about a bottom in gold and gold mining stocks and what the global economy and US may look like 10 years from now?

Dave thinks gold stocks are very attractive to purchase on dips right now and Dave is buying juniors for extra leverage.

Dave says he has no idea what the world will look like 10 years from now because of the totalitarian policies from politicians and bankers making things worse on basically a daily basis.

Roger Conrad: More Carnage In Oil Before We Bottom

Jason Burack of Wall St for Main St interviewed returning guest, investment analyst, long time investment newsletter writer and co-founder of Capitalist Times https://www.capitalisttimes.com/, Roger Conrad.

Roger has over 20 years experience as an investment analyst covering dividend stocks, utilities, and oil and energy investments. Roger is well respected in the industry for his acumen finding good income producing companies. Roger's full bio can be found here: https://www.capitalisttimes.com/autho...

During this 30+ minute interview, Jason asks Roger about whether oil prices have bottomed or will go lower before they bottom? Roger and his business partner, Elliot Gue think oil will bottom in the 20-25 range and there's more carnage to come in oil. However, Roger thinks oil will probably bottom before 2016 ends and then it may settle into a wide trading range between 40-60 where it would be "lower for longer" like in the 1980s oil bear market.

Andy Hoffman: US Dollar Gold/Silver Bull Market (Finally!) Back?

Jason Burack of Wall St for Main St interviewed returning guest, former Wall St investment analyst and current marketing director for precious metals bullion dealer Miles Franklin http://www.milesfranklin.com/, Andy Hoffman.

Andy's articles can be found here: http://blog.milesfranklin.com/categor...

During this 30+ minute interview, Jason asks Andy if he thinks all global central banks are trapped?

Andy says fiat currency is a Ponzi scheme that once started cannot be stopped until it blows up.

Andy talks about how much worse things are getting in the real economy and Jason asks Andy how people on Main st are going to get screwed?

Andy thinks people in the middle class living on Main St, USA will be screwed in as many different ways as possible by the US government, large banks, Wall St, etc.

Jason then asks Andy the consequences of negative interest rates. Andy says large Wall St investment banks have revealed that central banks plan on taxing people up to 4% in the near future per year to keep money in a checking or savings account.

To wrap up the interview, Jason and Andy talk extensively about the gold and silver markets including, if the secular precious metals bull market has returned in US Dollar terms, how bad things are for the gold and silver miners and how difficult is it for American citizens to store physical gold and silver outside the US.

Miles Franklin has meetings coming up in different towns in the US to talk about the global economy and precious metals. If you are interested, please contact Andy or the company for more information.

Jason Burack of Wall St for Main St interviewed first time guest, technology entrepreneur, investor and resource fund money manager, Matt Geiger of MJG Capital http://www.mjgcapital.com/.

Only 24 years old, Matt is already General Partner at MJG Capital where he invests money for a 10 year time frame for his investors into resource stocks. Matt focuses on juniors, prospect generators and near term producers in different commodities in energy and mining. Matt's fund avoids positions in hydrocarbon industries like oil, natural gas and coal but he pays attention to the entire energy complex because the energy sector is linked.

During this 25+ minute interview, Jason asks Matt about his interesting background and then he asks Matt about buying resource stocks in this environment. Matt is bullish on a number of commodities including lithium, gold, silver and uranium.

Jason and Matt discuss how many new technologies like smart phones and tablets require a lot of metal to go into them that Silicon Valley and Americans take for granted.

This interview is a good discussion about investing in resource stocks in a very unloved industry right now.

Wealth Watchman: Paper Gold, Silver Ratios Getting More & More Absurd!

Jason Burack of Wall St for Main St interviewed first time guest, gold and silver expert, The Wealth Watchman http://thewealthwatchman.com/

The Watchman has a popular and rapidly growing You Tube channel with his videos about the gold and silver markets that can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJrY...

During this 35+ minute interview, Jason asks Watchman about why China has decided to stop reporting Shanghai Gold Exchange (SGE) withdrawal data according to precious metals expert Koos Jansen of Bullion Star https://www.bullionstar.com/blogs/koo...

Watchman thinks China doesn't want the world (the West) having a good idea exactly how much physical gold it's importing so it halted the data. He thinks China wants to keep covertly/discreetly accumulating a lot more physical metals. Jason and Watchman also discuss China's plans to start buying up gold miners.

Next, Jason asks Watchman about the ridiculous paper:metal ratios at the COMEX that keep becoming more and more absurd! http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-01...

Watchman thinks before the COMEX, LBMA and manipulation of gold and silver markets breaks that the ratios could go over 1k or 2k to one!

Jason then asks Watchman how he thinks the manipulation will end? Watchman agrees with Jason that gold miners, silver miners and base metal miners that produce a large amount of silver as a by-product will force the people manipulating gold and silver to let prices go higher or supply will become very scarce.

Quality primary silver miners like Endeavour Silver have recently announced they will finally cut production: http://www.mining.com/endeavour-silve...

To wrap up the interview, Watchman tells Jason that the COMEX is started to bleed silver and Jason tells Watchman that the LBMA recently lost 1000 tons of gold http://www.lbma.org.uk/vaulting

Louis Cammarosano: Gold, Silver Miners Increasing Production Until Bankruptcy?

Jason Burack of Wall St for Main St had on first time guest, precious metals expert and founder of Smaulgld https://smaulgld.com/, Louis Cammarosano.

His full bio is available here: https://smaulgld.com/about/

Louis has been a technology company CEO, a real estate investor, and he also worked in the financial industry for many years in London and on Wall St.

In this 40+ minute interview, Jason asks Louis about the global economy and how close everything is to collapse?

Louis thinks the US government and Wall St have financially engineered a collapse in oil price to prevent countries from leaving the Petro Dollar and to bring countries like Russia to its knees.

Jason and Louis spend the rest of the interview talking about the gold and silver markets and about the miners.

Louis says how gold, silver and oil producers will actually keep increasing production to try and delay bankruptcy but they are all close to hitting a wall. After the bankruptcies start to rapidly increase and supply problems ensue, there will be a corresponding price increase.

Louis thinks silver is more likely to have a shortage than gold because so much of it is consumed in very small amounts by so many different industries.
