Here is a worthwhile chat about the blowing up of Nord Stream 2 and the realization by Germany that they were attacked by an enemy.

An act of war? It is quite a long video if you have the time, watch here

I found the chart below of interest because it shows the difference in volatility between BTC and physical gold. I don’t see the value at this volatile time of holding BTC indefinitely. As a trading vehicle the volatility is a bonus. Physical gold on the other hand can easily be held for the long term if desired.

Bitcoin vs. Gold Price Volatility

We are often asked if we are able to source small denomination coins on behalf of clients. Since early 2020, the supply of silver and gold smaller denomination coins has dried up or premiums have become outrageous. Our partner company is an authorized dealer for Goldback notes.

These are sheets of 24 carat or 999.9 gold encased in plastic, fiat size notes of various weights, depending on denomination. They are available in notes of 1, 5, 10, 25 and 50, respectively, 1/1000th, 1/200th, 1/100th, 1/40th, 1/20th of an ounce of gold. Starting at around $4.00 for a 1 Goldback and going to around $200.00 for a 50 Goldback, they represent the best method of usable fractional gold we have seen.

Goldbacks technically are like a gold bar, and are not legal tender. They are incredibly difficult to counterfeit and have many security features beyond the complexity of their production.

They are covered by warranty for delamination, and the president of the company told us that they have had two notes returned since starting production. The other major feature is that they are equal values, in that 1 x 50 Goldback note is equal to 50 x 1 Goldback notes, this is unlike all usual gold coins where fractional coins are not equal to whole coins, for instance 10 x 1/10 th oz coins will be much more expensive than 1 x 1 oz coin

We have carried these notes around in our wallets and find that they are extremely durable. I love the look, utility and applicability of these notes, particularly in a barter economy.

In addition it solves the problem of having small denomination coins which can be replaced by convenient real gold notes.

The more I think of the utility of these notes the more I like them. In my opinion they are light and convenient to carry and remove us from the current fiat system and the new proposed and currently being tested CBDC (Central Bank Digital Currency) system, which restores our freedom to trade in the way we like without big brother watching every move we make.

Here is one example of the notes available:

The low for Silver this week was $21.40 and the high $22.01, trading around $21.56 at present.

Silver on the monthly chart has given a sell signal. 

The weekly chart gave us a sell on Tuesday and looks like it has stalled there for now.

The daily chart gave a sell and has breached the bottom of the long term trading range at $21.50 and is holding that line.
