Stacking Silver in California is INSANE...It's a State of War with Our Freedoms! #2A

Mar 6, 2024

In this video, I discuss the insane state laws governing the purchase of silver and gold in California. We also discuss the war on our Freedoms, including our 2nd Amendment rights, and the threat of CBDC. Will California lead the way in restricting the purchases of precious metals and ammo? Watch as we discuss why THIS is the gold and silver buying opportunity you can't miss and why in a world attacking our liberties, physical cash, and the US dollar the spot prices of precious metals may rise without warning. 16 mins long.

The spot gold-silver ratio stayed relatively flat regardless of gold's headlines, closing the week at 89.That will be all for our weekly SD Bullion Market Update.

The high gold prices are like high oil prices. There should be a short retracement maybe back to $2000usd, but the next leg up is $2300 after that.

Central banks and Asia are putting in a floor price as long as none of the bubbles burst, but if they do they will liquidate whatever they can to generate liquidity to cover margins.

I am betting all the financial engineering will help commercial real estate with lower interest rates, but perhaps higher qualifications to refi to keep the can rolling down the road?

Gold Still Massively Undervalued, Silver Setup is Unreal​

Mar 11, 2024
Ian Everard brings his unique perspective as the owner of a precious metals dealership to bear on valuing gold, silver, and platinum. Ian discusses the setup he sees for all three metals and reveals the ultimate precious metal: osmium. What is osmium, why should investors consider owning it and what are the osmium supply-demand dynamics? Ian answers these questions and more in this compelling conversation on precious metals.

In this video my bullion Dealer, Tim Marschner of the Coin and Stamp Shop, explains why the rising spot price of gold is a "disaster" for him. The recent bump in gold's price (and to a lesser extent, silver's price) is causing a lot of people to show interest in precious metals. Will the price of gold continue to rise? Will silver soon follow gold up? Or is there a price correction coming soon? I also ask Tim if gold and silver stackers are selling their precious metals and why. Watch as I discuss this and other gold and silver stacking topics!

Gold & Silver are down due to hot inflation numbers and fed rates. Will They cut the interest rates and how will that affect silver & gold bullion. We can't be sure what is going to happen to precious metals but this may be a good time to prepare in case SHTF. Low premiums on silver, gold and 90% silver coins are still around.


Silver Price Surge Above $25! Massive Rally!​

Mar 13, 2024


How doomsday preppers made gold and silver precious end-of-the-world assets​

  • The precious metals gold and silver are favorite stores of value for doomsday preppers, along with food and water.
  • Costco added silver coins for sale as the retail warehouse giant saw sales of gold bars top $100 million in the first fiscal quarter.
  • “Lots of people are more confident that a massive disaster is impending than that American prosperity will continue,” said John Hay, the editor of “Apocalypse in American Literature and Culture.”
Among the cans of tuna and flashlights in doomsday preppers’ closets, there is an increasingly popular staple — gold bars.

The recent rise in value of the yellow metal is not just another chapter of favorable economic conditions for the asset, experts say.

People’s interest in gold — and silver, too — reflect deep anxieties about our society and its future.

“People are looking for permanence in a crumbling world,” said Timothy Morton, a philosopher and ecologist.



$27.33 Silver Is Here NOW! The Rally Continues​

How is it possible for silver to be over $27 when the spot price is just above $25?



Last month, February 2024, India made its largest monthly import of physical silver on record.

Gold finished this week slightly down from its record nominal price run last Friday.

The spot gold price again closed over $2,150 fiat US dollars per ounce and has now completed 17 weeks in a row above the building $2000 oz price support level. It wasn't too long ago that this price level was resistance.The spot silver price popped a bit this week, closing above the $25 oz threshold. It will be interesting to see when we next make a run at $26 oz, possibly next week.

As a result of silver's relative strength this week, the spot gold-silver ratio fell to a still historically high level of 85.That will be all for our weekly SD Bullion Market Update.

As always to you out there, take great care of yourselves and those you love.

Uncle’s HIDDEN HOARD of Gold AND Silver!! Are these Stunned Sisters Selling? #HiddenTreasure

Mar 18, 2024

In this video, my bullion dealer Tim Marschner of the Coin and Stamp Shop and I are absolutely STUNNED by the discovery of a gold hoard in a customer's possession. Where did all this gold Krugerrands and 5-ounce gold bars come from? How old is this gold and in what condition did they find it? Why did their uncle hide his gold in his attic? Did he communicate the gold's whereabouts before his death? The questions are many, but you are NOT gonna want to miss these two fortunate couples' story about a discovery of a lifetime!

GoldSeek Radio Nugget - Bill Murphy​

Mar 20, 2024

Bill Murphy of Lemetropole Cafe and GATA.org, comments on the explosive move higher in silver of the past month: "...
The monthly silver chart is the most bullish he's seen in his life..."
- Is silver building up steam for an explosive vertical move?
- Bill notes $26 & $30 are the last two hurdles left to eclipse, by the silver bulls.
- Once those resistance points are cleared, little technical resistance remains.
- A monthly close above $30 could soon be followed by a retest of $50
.- Above $50, there is little technical resistance below $100.
- If history follows the pattern set during the last PMs bull market, silver could leave the launch pad as gold approaches $2,500.
- Since impressive silver advances are known to lag new highs in the gold market by several months, theta related, time-decay investments may be less suitable for this opportunity.
- Once the nascent bull market is recognized by the mainline media, silver show should commence!
- Mega-star podcaster, The Health Ranger, is now calling for triple digit silver, in the long-term.


Silver Price SURGE After Fed Decision! Warning Ahead!​

Mar 20, 2024

I did not listen to the schills that repeated NOT to buy fractional gold. I remember the gold old days of 6 months ago when you could buy a 1/10th oz. gold coin for $195 on sale. Not no mo'.

I only wish I bought a cleaned $5 Indian last week for $560 at BE.

Record Silver ETF Inflow into London | Gold +$2,222 oz Intra Week​

On the heels of last month's record-sized silver import volumes into India with over +70 million ounces imported for February 2024 alone.

This week, we saw record-sized capital inflows into one of the world's largest unsecured Silver ETFs, with an alleged 1,000 oz bar stored in London. Approximately three-quarters of a billion fiat dollar inflow. Or, more succinctly, an additional over +29 million ounce inflow into $SIVR silver ETF.

This physical inflow occurred in the Loco London vault system, and thus, the trading was private between parties, possibly not even affecting silver spot price markets.

The spot gold price closed over a $2,150 oz bid, completing its 18th week hovering above the building $2,000 oz price support threshold.

The spot silver price made a brief run at $26 oz before being slapped down, closing just below the $25 oz spot for the week.

The spot gold-silver ratio climbed on gold's strength to 87.5.

That will be all for our weekly SD Bullion Market Update. As always to you out there, take great care of yourselves and those you love.

The Ugly Truth: Why The Price Of Silver Has Not Kept Up With Gold​

Mar 29, 2024

Why is the price of silver not making news highs like gold? There is a structural shift in investors away from silver and into crypto as their get rich quick scheme.
I will look at the inflation adjusted price of silver vs. gold going back to 1980. The silver price is lagging gold by a lot even though both are lagging inflation. Should you still buy silver? That is your decision, but if you still want to invest in silver you should do it by buying the cheapest premium silver you can find. The same goes with investing in gold bullion also.

BULLION BREAKOUT: Silver +$27.50 oz, Gold +$2,330 oz​

Premiered 7 hours ago

Uninitiated normies watching this week's SD Bullion Market Update likely won't understand. But in the coming years, if they can look back at this video. Well, they'll likely understand it better by then.
For silver bulls like myself, breaking through $26 oz resistance this week was an important technical move. By Tuesday afternoon, it was clear that the Silver Bulls would have a good week on paper.
The spot gold price set another record nominal high, closing the week near 2,330 oz bid in fiat US dollar terms.
The spot silver price ramped after clearing 26 early in the week to close trading at a $27.50 oz bid.
The spot gold-silver ratio shrunk to 84, given silver's strength on the week.
Gold's 200-day moving average is getting close to $2,000 oz, adding another plank to the growing support of this escalating nominal price rise.


That will be all for our weekly SD Bullion Market Update.

Apr 8, 2024

The price of gold is making all time highs and the price of silver is up 10% in the last week, yet the premiums on physical gold and silver have collapsed. How is this possible? If retail holders are dumping gold and silver, then who are the buyers that are driving the price of gold and silver higher? I take a look at who the potential new buyers are and why they are buying now.

In this second video inside the largest coin shop in America, I get to hold an ultra-rare $1,000,000 gold coin! I also continue my tour the coin shop seeing more gold and silver.
