  • Bitcoin Fails As A Currency And The Bubble Will Eventually Pop [View article]
    "...I have with the Bitcoin is that it is founded any an absolutely deceitful, dangerous and misguided political philosophy. Its entier foundation is based upon a complete misunderstanding of our monetary system..."

    What on earth are you talking about?
    "deceitful" - bitcoin: open source protocol
    vs. fiat: LIBOR-fixing, "open market committee", HSBC/Wachoiva money laundering, "primary dealer's" privilege, bail-outs, bail-ins, etc. etc. etc. ??

    "dangerous" ?? - I thought you thought it was stupid and doomed to fail - how can it also be dangerous?

    "misguided political philosophy" - becaues *you* somehow know the 'right political philosophy'?

    "complete misunderstanding of our monetary system" ?? - The irony is strong with this one...

  • Will Rhodium Ever Repeat Its 4-Year 2,000% Rally? [View article]
    Of course handling and storage must be "done right".
    There are trading companies which deal in these exotic things.
    One example is http://bit.ly/1uD20fd

    Ultrashort story.

    Both indium and tellurium ultimately have inelastic supply (by products of copper and zinc).
    Both are KEY ingredients in thin-film solar cells (CdTe - First Solar) and CIS/CIGS (Solar Frontier).

    They (particularly indium) are both useful for many other hi-tech applications where money is no object. This bodes for good upside potential (multiples) with limited downside (since production will become uneconomic and scale back if prices drop very far).


    I bought the physical suff.

    I don't know if XRHO is still in operation - it was run by Deutsche Bank.

    I bought physical rhodium at the bottom in 2009. Yes, there are expenses associated we (re)assaying upon sale, but if the quantity is sufficiently large that is OK.

    (It's the same thing for my holdings of physical tellurium and indium, BTW.)

    I see you haven't lost your sense of humor.

    Ecuador-coin is "The Bticoin Killer"??
    Surely you ARE joking.

    Nice to see more discussion of the PGM and minor metals on SA.
    And double points for calling bitcoin a start-up currency!

    I'm guessing that you and I have a similar investment focus and I suspect you'd enjoy some of my older posts (e.g. my pitch for palladium with an aside about rhodium from a few years ago - I'm having a victory lap these days!)

  • The Palladium Bull Run Is Under Way [View article]
    I saw this coming a few years back and got most of my physical palladium in the $200-300 price range. My target remains 80% of platinum's price (for which my target currently is $2000-ish. I.e. I expect Pd to reach ca. $1600.
    I also recommended Pd here on SA in 2011 when a pullback offered a good entry point for astute investors: http://seekingalpha.co...

    Pd is a no-brainer investment at this point IMHO. Fundamentals are STELLAR.

    Yep - that's where I stopped reading. How can anyone make such a statement with WTI at $105 and expect to be taken seriously?

  • Is A Spike In Natural Gas Price Imminent? [View article]
    "Plus there are a lot of capped and throttled NG wells waiting for the price to go up. And a lot more wells will be connected to pipelines by winter as they get completed. That alone could add 50% to tight NG supplies over 2 yrs."

    Please provide a source for this claim. Where are these, who owns them, and how does that 50% supply calculation look?
