Good morning friends-
I want to review the latest breaking news this week about the accusations surrounding the claims that silver and gold are manipulated on the London Exchange and how it effects your wealth preservation strategy and I will also discuss the importance of why you should have multiple brokers that specialize in their particular field. This is a different time friends, I hope your paying attention, this is history in the making – we will need to explain this to our kids and grand kids one day so they don’t make the same mistakes.
If you recall a short time ago, there were proven facts that the LIBOR rates were fixed and although at the time it was huge news, in the end, nobody went to prison and no bank involved went bankrupt, only a slap on the wrist and a fine which was ok with them because all of the money they stole manipulating in the first place – I would expect the same result with regard to fixing the silver and gold pricing also.
A quote from the Washington Post yesterday stated “Bank of England executive Paul Tucker told MPs that Barclays’ abuse of the Libor system may be only one part of the banks’ dishonesty over crucial financial information, suggesting that other markets should now be investigated.” and that The Libor scandal could be repeated in a number of other “self-certifying” markets where prices are determined.
So is this “here we go again” with the latest way to manipulate the markets to favor them and take advantage of you the investor? I believe it is and let me explain…The Wall Street Journal posted a short video explanation about how this manipulation is executed Read More Here
You see friends, I’ve said it time and time again that these big banks don’t play fair and you the investor is at a major disadvantage and at massive systemic risk. Systemic risk means that the system we invest in is broken, fixed, rigged and not a fair playing ground. Now if you think about it, all markets are manipulated, however, money needs a home and if I need to invest and try to make money, I would rather be in a physical market rather than a paper derivative market – Why? Its simple
Can a bushel of corn go bankrupt? Can a barrel of oil or Wheat, Silver or Gold? Absolutely not! If held long enough, they will ultimately find they’re true value again. This is similar to the precious metals market today, whereas the price has been forced down, manipulated and certainly beat up for the past 2 years. However, you must understand that over the past 12 years, silver and gold are the only hard assets that have increased a stunning 600-700% in real dollar terms!
You see friends, Silver and Gold are not part of the financial system as you and I are led to believe, but the banks who control the financial system still put their grubby paws into what ever they can manipulate and because they appear to be “above the law” they continue to perform this activity with no consequence.
Reuters released an article yesterday that I believe best describes how they do it and why they do it and they have also interviewed Bart Chilton, the Head of the CFTC who states “Given the clubby manipulation efforts we saw in Libor benchmarks, I assume other benchmarks – many other benchmarks – are legit areas of inquiry.” Read More Here
As you remember in 2008 the fingers were pointing to JP Morgan for manipulating the price of silver and we had a 4 year “investigation” that turned up empty and again, no prison time and no “hard evidence” was produced, but yet you and I know that it is manipulated.
Guys, pay attention here – this is your money, your investments. I will prove to to you beyond any reasonable doubt they you need to have a larger portion of your portfolio anchored in Silver and Gold in the physical form and stored outside the banking system.
When you invest, you are looking for yearly returns right? So why do most investors judge the metal on a day to day basis? The fact is that gold has pierced through its previous years high for the last 10 years and silver has the last 7 out of 10 years and yet people hate the metal because it shows no return.
The metals are not designed to show “return” they are designed to protect purchasing power over periods of time, they are designed to hedge against inflation and create generational wealth and they have been accomplishing this for 5,000 years. The added benefit is the liquidity that silver and gold provide and how it is held outside the banking system as a means to again, protect your Federal Reserve Notes should an unfortunate situation happen with the banks… can you name at least 5 unfortunate situations that have happened with our banks over the last 5 years?
You cannot afford to take a blind eye approach to this subject, there is too much at stake. I know that I can help you to understand this and more importantly how you can maneuver around this area. I am not saying to get out of all equities and flood into hard assets, I am simply saying this is a different time now and everything is rigged, unfair, manipulated and outright theft. So different times call for different strategies and this is a serious time we are in right now.
I remember years ago when financial advisers would suggest having 5-10% of an investor portfolio held in hard assets like precious metals and even then they recommended ETF’S or other paper proxy’s – They were wrong back then, they are wrong now. My challenge to you today is to try and understand the importance of having “multiple brokers” working for you that specialize in their particular field.
What I am saying is this is not the time for stagnation. Don’t rely on one adviser to give you advise of a variety of different investment vehicles – it’s sort of like a TV commercial I’ve seen on CNBC where a man comes home to see a plumber fixing his sink and recognizes him as the same guy that just gave him insurance advise…

Several of my current clients today utilize me as a trusted metals adviser and they also work with stock advisers, bond advisers, option and futures advisers and so on. As you are well aware, I give my work 110% everyday, 6 and sometimes 7 days a week. Is that the type of knowledgeable, hard working adviser you’d like to have working on your side?
If so, please reach out and email me or call me -allow me to give you a portfolio check up!
