Maurice Jackson Interviews Jayant Bhandari

We are happy to present another interview conducted by Maurice Jackson of Proven and Probable with our friend and frequent contributor Jayant Bhandari, a specialist on gold mining investment, the world’s most outspoken emerging market contrarian, host of the highly regarded annual Capitalism and Morality conference in London and consultant to institutional investors.

 

As soon as Jayant touches down in London, he is accosted by microphone-wielding young women eager to hear what he has to say…

Here is a brief summary of the topics Jayant discusses in the interview:

 

  1. An overview of a recent speech he delivered in London entitled “Gold in India: Current Market Dynamics and Future Opportunities” (Indian street prices of gold are 10% above prices elsewhere in the world, but they should be even higher – why is that so?)
  2. Recent political developments in India, where cows (which are considered sacred animals by many people) have become more popular than seems to be good for anyone walking on fewer than four legs.
  3. The increasingly dire situation in another submerging market, namely South Africa.*
  4. A developed market that seems set on becoming a submerging market, namely British Columbia in Canada. After an election in early May delivered a hung parliament, the province is threatened by a shift to the political left, with socialists and greens joining forces to form an authoritarian watermelon. A long list of outrageously absurd anti-free market policies are now hanging like the sword of Damocles over what was up until now the fastest growing region in the fastest growing G7 economy. Billions in planned investments in energy projects are inter alia at risk (those of the economically viable sort, not the cronyism and theft that is euphemistically referred to as “alternative” energy).**
  5. Recent arbitrage opportunities developing in gold mining stocks.
  6. A reminder regarding this year’s Capitalism and Morality conference, which will host numerous very interesting speakers – there is still time to register.***

**As an aside to this, a delicate detail is that British Columbia is also home to the infamous Vancouver property bubble, which the watermelons have sworn to rein in. That may sound like a commendable idea in principle, until you find out how they want to go about it – they simply plan to raise taxes further. How very original!

A price chart illustrating the enormity of the Vancouver housing bubble, which has recently exhibited rather stunning volatility – often a sign that the big denouement is close. It probably doesn’t really matter what anyone does or doesn’t do about it at this stage… but if the watermelons hasten its demise, they are bound to inadvertently become the “owners” of the debacle – click to enlarge.

Dear Readers!

You may have noticed that our so-called “semiannual” funding drive, which started sometime in the summer if memory serves, has seamlessly segued into the winter. In fact, the year is almost over! We assure you this is not merely evidence of our chutzpa; rather, it is indicative of the fact that ad income still needs to be supplemented in order to support upkeep of the site. Naturally, the traditional benefits that can be spontaneously triggered by donations to this site remain operative regardless of the season - ranging from a boost to general well-being/happiness (inter alia featuring improved sleep & appetite), children including you in their songs, up to the likely allotment of privileges in the afterlife, etc., etc., but the Christmas season is probably an especially propitious time to cross our palms with silver. A special thank you to all readers who have already chipped in, your generosity is greatly appreciated. Regardless of that, we are honored by everybody's readership and hope we have managed to add a little value to your life.

One Response to “Jayant Bhandari on Gold, Submerging Markets and Arbitrage”

  • Hans:

    Stock miners are screaming buy. Why you axe?

    Go back to June of 2009, when Au was selling for around $950
    per ounce and stocks like GG and ABX were priced at almost
    twice the current level.

    One thing is for certain, they were either overpriced or they
    are now selling at a substantial discount.

    Another factor certainly to drive precious metals prices, is America’s
    decline in civil respect for law and order! Whether it be the streets of
    Murdermore, (record high of homicides 2016) Chirack, Soros’ BLM LLC
    or NoKo, expert this nation to pay the price for the tenure of the
    Bush/Barrocko failed leadership, especially Hope and No Change.

    The campaign to scuttle The Donald’s Conservative agenda, will remain
    operational until next year’s elections. Ill winds await for the hapless
    Socshevikes!

    I am sorry to say but America continues to devolve. The Swamp will quickly
    become a Cesspool.

  • The Gold Sector Remains at an Interesting Juncture
      Technical Divergence Successfully Maintained In an update on gold and gold stocks in mid June, we pointed out that a number of interesting divergences had emerged which traditionally represent a heads-up indicating a trend change is close (see: Divergences Emerge for the details). We did so after a big down day in the gold price, which actually helped set up the bullish divergence; this may have felt counter-intuitive, but these set-ups always do. Consider now the updated chart below...
  • Confronting the Dragon with Peter Navarro
      Of No Real Use A young man might go to business school believing he is obtaining some sort of academic training that will enable him to make a comfortable living.  His degree may gain him entry into a large corporation, where he can work his way up to a good income.  This may even put him on the fast track to what he envisions as success.   Don't knock it: Being useless can lead to unexpected career opportunities... [PT]   But his academic training likely won't...
  • Trouble in Paradise
      Impressive Zeal for Faded Ideals Uncompromising independence, rugged individualism, and limitless personal freedom were once essential to the American character.  According to popular American folklore, they still are.  We have some reservations.   Rugged individualists suffer mid-life identity crisis. [PT]   The principles that gave rise to the American character died long ago.  Freedom.  Liberty.  Independence.  Limited representative government. Sound...
  • The United States of Terror
      Bombs Away! Two recent articles* have again demonstrated that the greatest “terrorist” entity on earth are not the bogymen – Russia, China, Iran, North Korea – so often portrayed by Western presstitutes and the American government, but the United States itself!   This is an old cartoon, but still a good one. It perfectly describes the trigger-happy Western political class and the depth of its “thinking”. By happenstance we recently reviewed the Libya intervention...
  • Gold – Macroeconomic Fundamentals Improve
      A Beginning Shift in Gold Fundamentals A previously outright bearish fundamental backdrop for gold has recently become slightly more favorable. Ironically, the arrival of this somewhat more favorable situation was greeted by a pullback in physical demand and a decline in the gold price, after both had defied bearish fundamentals for many months by remaining stubbornly firm.   The eternal popularity contest...   The list of gold fundamentals that have improved is...
  • Capitulation and Currency Pain - Precious Metals Supply and Demand
      Waving the White Flag The price of gold rose two bucks last week, though the price of silver fell 10 cents. We have seen several analyses recently predicting big price drops, in one case by at least $500 in gold by the end of the year. Is this what capitulation looks like? It’s said they don’t ring a bell at the top, but they don’t ring a bell at the bottom either.   The give-up moment arrives... [PT]   We have also seen technical analysis arguing that...
  • Maurice Jackson Interviews Rick Rule – Investing in Natural Resources
      Contrarian Investment Opportunities in Natural Resources Maurice Jackson of Proven and Probable has recently interviewed Sprott U.S. Holdings CEO Rick Rule, a well known specialist and “old hand” in the natural resource space.

  • Black Holes for Capital - Precious Metals Supply and Demand
      Race to the Bottom Last week the price of gold fell $17, and that of silver $0.30. Why? We can tell you about the fundamentals. We can show charts of the basis. But we can’t get into the heads of the sellers.   Other people's fiat: in the global race to the bottom, it was recently the turn of emerging market currencies to tank. [PT]   We can say that in the mainstream view, the dollar is rising. The dollar, in their view, is not measured in gold but in rupees in...
