“If your system’s going to crash, you want to have gold and silver. Physical.” - Eric Sprott on systemic instability (Weekly Wrap-Up, April 20,2018)

It’s been another week of rising inflation and interest rates, but the commodities markets look good, with silver in particular poised for a breakout.

 

This week, Eric tells you:

 

  • What a possible short squeeze means for you
  • Why you should be watching the bond market right now
  • And why India might be the next big buyer of gold

 

“It’s not just the net short position that is important. It’s: What if a Long says to a guy who’s short, ‘I’d like my silver?’ ‘I’d like my metal?’ We have over a billion ounces of short metal in silver. What if the Long simply says, ‘I can see there’s a bit of tightness showing up here in these various metals… maybe I’ll take delivery, thank you very much.’ Of course, as we know, the seller of the silver and/or gold doesn’t have the metals. So, yeah, there’s a very distinct possibility that this could erupt as people are getting more distressed… There are lots of smart guys that worry about the system crashing.”
