So I’ve been thinking. With the bitcoin bubble getting larger by the hour, is now the time to lock in gold and silver?

Gold is trading at $1,600CAD and silver at $20. With BRICS pushing for an independent gold standard petroleum dollar and the bitcoin bubble inevitably bursting in the coming weeks or months, gold might see a sudden spike as everyone takes cover and gets in for what could be a long, bumpy ride as the US struggles to maintain its petro dollar status and China/Russia keep pushing for an alternate petro currency. The result is instability which equates with a rise in precious metals.

Thoughts?

 

Gold is at $1,332USD today (hit $1,370 a few days back), or $1700 CAD. I wouldn't be surprised if we saw it rise to $2,000CAD over the next month or six weeks with the way the trade war is shaping up.

For how long will Canadian natural gas sell at a 40% discount to US natural gas?  (yesterday's prices). When the gap closes will some Canadian natural gas producers be good investments?

 

What could close the gap in prices? LNG exports from BC? Increased Canadian consumption of gas (Alberta phasing out coal)? Increased exports to the US don't look likely except perhaps to the US West Coast. Will Canadian production fall in response to low prices?

 

Thoughts?

LNG exports, for sure. There's just not enough demand for Canada's NG, but there will be if we can export the stuff to Asia.

I would say if it wasn't for Steve we might be living in a very different world....

too bad he didn't invent really anything.  Microsoft invented the tablet, IBM invented the smartphone.  He was a marketer and nothing else.  I don't have a single Apple product and very happy for it.

 

If you read about him you will discover he was a nut job.  He refused to bathe or wear deodorant and was put on the night shift because he stunk so bad, for awhile he only ate apples and carrots and nothing else, etc, etc

Sorry you’re right. He was a total loser....

I also own MSFT but they haven’t performed nearly as well. Mind you I didn’t invest in them until they started doing some well designed products in the hardware domain.

Would life really be so different if we were all still using BlackBerry's and flip phones? Life is pretty much the same as it was in 2009, overall.

Apple’s big contribution IMO is bringing design to the forefront of computers and like devices. Their integration of hardware/software is still second to none even though iTunes sucks. They also made digital music profitable again....

People have no idea how much difference an inspirational leader makes in a technical organization.
