WPM is trading a criminally fake NI 43101 of ABX title and permit less

WPM just covered up for SILVER WHEATON as SILVER Barrick and SLW had not, all the Silver and Gold are mine, on tile at this date,

If hundreds of millions stolen from SLW given to Barrick for STOLEN SILVER story thanks to "making Pascua Lama title DD stand 2008-2022"? That is a crime of shame to fabricate PASCUA LAMA ownership for Barrick at USD3 per oz as done.

Really NOCE DAY when thieves are caught. Have a nice day indeed.

Barrick to THE BASEMENT of CANADAS HALL OF MINERS SHAME

The stole MINA PASCUA CHILE gigantic Gold Silver mine, for 10,000 pesos 20 bucks and surely they sell you their shares more expensive RIGHT? Berkshire Hathaway dumped 12 days after my legal info of Chilean Supreme Court validation of an action against Canadian regulators and Barrick FOR CLEAN TITLE (me only 1996-2022)

LAMA are glaciers and burro-guanaco-llamas pastures in Argentina no minerals, just a sinister tunnel to escape TAXES only politicians were bribed

Did Villar transaction PROPSPER FOR ABX? Not, not then nor today
It was and is unconstitutional act of piracy and thievery, of your cash too.

The sale of VILLAR is null and void by the sole Judgment of 2006 respected by the Mines Commissioner 2011 based on THE BOOKS of the Mines Registrar not in FOOLISH PAID FOR Letters of opinion or AFFIDAVITS which are nit and shall never be CLEAN TITLE, like mine.

The BC regulators with and for the TSX are caught USD$1.05 in Chile !!! They hired a lawyer O $$$ A and the liar was AN IMPOSTORS today confessed impostor and THE PASCUA LAMA PONZI shows that SILVER WEHATON as WPM has the same DEAD END Pascua Lama PONZI scam 2008-2022 stealing all the cash FROM YOU !!!!!!!!!!!!

O $$$ A is NOW halted from escaping from the 18th Civil Court, for he said that such case to BURY TESOROS after their 2006 ordered death, "was frivolous going nowhere and was dismissed 2018"????? The 2018-2019-2020 runaway came back in style to Trail C 3784 -2016 at he 18th Civil Court of Santiago to adhere to the FUNERAL of ABX MWR and MSX regulators ambitions with SLW now WPM TSX OSC your chaistee
VALODATED PASCUA LAMA ponzi for US$3 per Silver ounce.

The only valid ownership of BARRICK GOLD CORPORATION in Chile for the Canadian Government and establishment plus racketeering regulators PREDATORS of innocent shareholders is their FOREIGN INVESTMENT contracted ownership of 0.000001% of Pascua for USD 1.05 - well known to MSX local regulators - in crimes v. MWR and MSX

Here is for all to see: It was not me who killed the MR SKUNK sheriff it was his own guilt. But yes I have caught all of his deputies "with the hands in the cookie jar"

BARRICK GOLD CORPORATION 2007/17 GOLD FRAUD

CONTRACTED CHILE ASSETS INVESTMENT = USD$1.05

TSX-OSC regulators and BC criminal exchange MONEY LAUNDERING your cash with fake PASCUA LAMA SILVER that never was

BARRICK and WPM must face criminal impersonation of ownership of Gold and Silver at Pascua Lama. Its regulators defrauded MWR at TSX and MSX

Barrick owns LAMA which are GUANACO PASTURES in Argentina, the Chilean Gold and Silver is mine 1996-2022 and Barrick via its crime corporation CMN SpA trading as ABX and WPM is a criminal racket of invented titles.

The MSX regulators hired an impostor of the 2018 Hearing, they are all charged civil and criminally.

PASCUA LAMA is a PONZI of major proportions the death of BARRICK SILVER WHEATON and many tied to the disaster of crime.

Bre X committed less Gold crimes than Barrick

YES, I asked BERKSHITRE TO SUMP ABX and they did divest in 12 days after seeing my evidence.

TOLDA YA !!1 ciao Barrick you belong to the CANADIAN HALL OF SHAME .with SILVER WHEATON _ WPM et al. criminal fraudsters

Barrick never owned MINA PASCUA or PASCUA LAMA and sold LAMA to Chinese interests in fraud, promising PASCUA that was never BARRICK asset.

NON of the Pascua Lama NI43101 mining assets has been ever permitted to sell Gold or Silver or Copper forward by SERNAGEOMIN Barrick is the largest Gold and Silver scam a PONZI of worldwide financial markets.

Approval of New Infrastructure Bill Sparks Enthusiasm for Copper
8:50 am ET November 23, 2021 (PR Newswire) Print
Last week, US President Joe Biden unveiled one of the largest infrastructure plans in U.S. history. The bipartisan approval targets up to $1.2 trillion in funding, including $550 billion in new investments for bridges, airports, the nation's waterways and policies, transit, and more. Much of the bill targets electrification for infrastructure, buildings, and fleets of government vehicles. In addition to financing renewable energy, the infrastructure bill also provides $7.5 billion for electrification of public transport and an additional $7.5 billion for charging stations for electric vehicles (EVs), which is expected to drive demand for industrial metals and battery materials like copper, lithium, cobalt, nickel, and more. Companies mining these metals and materials like Wheaton Precious Metals (TSX:WPM) (NYSE:WPM), Hudbay Minerals (NYSE:HBM), Taseko Mines Ltd. (TSX:TKO) (NYSE:TGB), Copper Mountain Mining (TSX:CMMC), and Kutcho Copper (TSXV:KC) (OTCQX:KCCFF) could be on the precipice of a mining boom due to this bill.

It is dropping again but with a caveat.
As gold plunges the gold/silver ratio is dropping also which never happens.
That is why in my last post I said the banks have lost control over the physical silver
market and the bullion dealers are now holding the cards with their high premiums
on physical silver, especially silver coins.

More manipulation by the big banks but is failing because the bullion dealers are asking very large premiums over the paper spot
price.
The bullion dealers have more of a handle on the actual silver
supply then the big banks.
Watch the bullion dealer prices and not the paper spot price.
I have never seen such high premiums over the spot before on silver
bullion. See JP bullion.
Something going on and the banks aren't controlling the actual price of silver bullion.

Doug Casey: Gold Stocks Are Going to Be Explosive
By Doug Casey January 3, 2020 Print

By Doug Casey, founder, Casey Research

My regular readers know why I believe the gold price is poised to move from its current level of around $1,550 per ounce to $2,000… $3,000, and beyond.

Right now, we are exiting the eye of the giant financial hurricane that we entered in 2007, and we’re going into its trailing edge. It’s going to be much more severe, different, and longer lasting than what we saw in 2008 and 2009.

In a desperate attempt to stave off a day of financial reckoning during the 2008 financial crisis, global central banks began printing trillions of new currency units. The printing continues to this day. And it’s not just the Federal Reserve that’s doing it: it’s just the leader of the pack. The U.S., Japan, Europe, China… all major central banks are participating in the biggest increase in global monetary units in history.

These reckless policies have produced not just billions, but trillions, in malinvestment that will inevitably be liquidated. This will lead us to an economic disaster that will in many ways dwarf the Great Depression of 1929–1946. Paper currencies will fall apart, as they have many times throughout history.

This isn’t some vague prediction about the future. It’s happening right now. The Canadian dollar has lost 24% of its value since 2013. The Australian dollar has lost 34% of its value during the same time. The Japanese yen and the euro have crashed in value. And the U.S. dollar is currently just the healthiest horse on its way to the glue factory.

These moves show that we’re in the early stages of a currency crisis. But if you make the right moves, you could actually make windfall gains instead of suffering losses. Here’s how to do it…

The huge winner during this crisis will be the only currency that has real value: gold.

Gold has been used as money for thousands of years because it has a unique combination of qualities. Let me spell it out very briefly: It’s durable (almost indestructible – that’s why we don’t use food as money), divisible (each divided piece is valuable – that’s why we don’t use artwork as money), convenient (its unit value is very high – that’s why iron isn’t a good money), consistent (all .999 gold is identical – that’s why we don’t use real estate as money), and has value in and of itself (which is why we shouldn’t use paper as money). Just as important, governments can’t create gold out of thin air. It’s the only financial asset that’s not simultaneously someone else’s liability.

When people wake up and realize that most banks and governments are bankrupt, they’ll flock to gold… just as they’ve done for centuries. Gold will rise multiples of its current value. I expect a 200% rise from current levels, at the minimum. There are many reasons, which we don’t have room to cover here, why gold could see a truly significant gain. And in real terms, not just against paper money.

This should produce a corresponding bull market in gold stocks… of an even greater magnitude. A true mania for gold stocks could develop over the coming years. This could make anyone who buys gold stocks at their current depressed levels very rich.
What History Teaches Us About Great Speculations

Many of the best speculations have a political element to them.

Governments are constantly creating distortions in the market, causing misallocations of capital. Whenever possible, the speculator tries to find out what these distortions are, because their consequences are predictable.

They result in trends you can bet on. Because you can almost always count on the government to do the wrong thing, you can almost always safely bet against them. It’s as if the government were guaranteeing your success.

The classic example, not just coincidentally, concerns gold.

The U.S. government suppressed its price for decades while creating huge numbers of dollars before it exploded upward in 1971. Speculators who understood some basic economics positioned themselves accordingly. Over the next nine years, gold climbed more than 2,000% and many gold stocks climbed by more than 5,000%.

Governments are constantly manipulating and distorting the monetary situation. Gold in particular, as the market’s alternative to government money, is always affected by that. So gold stocks are really a way to short government – or go long on government stupidity, as it were.

The bad news is that governments act chaotically, spastically.

The beast jerks to the tugs on its strings held by various puppeteers. But while it’s often hard to predict price movements in the short term, the long term is a near certainty. You can bet confidently on the end results of chronic government monetary stupidity.

Mining stocks are extremely volatile for that very same reason. That’s good news, however, because volatility makes it possible, from time to time, to get not just doubles or triples but 10-baggers, 20-baggers, and even 100-to-1 shots.

When gold starts moving higher, it’s going to direct a lot of attention towards gold stocks. When people get gold fever, they are not just driven by greed, they’re usually driven by fear as well, so you get both of the most powerful market motivators working for you at once. It’s a rare class of securities that can benefit from fear and greed at once.

Remember that the Fed’s pumping-up of the money supply ignited a huge bubble in tech stocks in the late ’90s, and then an even more massive global bubble in real estate that burst in 2008. But they’re still creating tons of dollars.

This will inevitably ignite other asset bubbles. Where? I can’t say for certain, but I say the odds are extremely high that as gold goes up, a lot of this funny money is going to pour into these gold stocks, which are not just a microcap area of the market but a nanocap area of the market. The combined market capitalization of the 10 biggest U.S.-listed gold stocks is less than 9% of the size of Facebook alone.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: When the public gets the bit in its teeth and wants to buy gold stocks, it’s going to be like trying to siphon the contents of the Hoover Dam through a garden hose.

Gold stocks, as a class, are going to be explosive. Now, you’ve got to remember that most of them are junk. Most will never, ever find an economic deposit. But it’s hopes and dreams that drive them, not reality, and even those without merit can still go up 10, 20, or 30 times your entry price.

And companies that actually have the goods can go much higher than that.

You buy gold, the metal, because you’re prudent. It’s for safety, liquidity, insurance. The gold stocks, even though they explore for or mine gold, are at the polar opposite of the investment spectrum; you buy them for their extreme volatility, and the chance they offer for spectacular gains. It’s rather paradoxical, actually.
Why Gold Stocks Are an Ideal “Asymmetric Bet”

Because these stocks have the potential to go 10, 50, or even 100 times your entry price, they offer something called “asymmetry.”

You probably learned about symmetry in grade school. It’s when the parts of something have equal form and size. For example, cut a square in half and the two parts are symmetrical.

Symmetry is attractive in some forms. The more symmetrical someone’s face is, the more physically attractive they are considered to be. Symmetry is often attractive in architecture.

But when it comes to investing and speculating in the financial markets, the expert financial operator eschews symmetry. Symmetry is for suckers.

The expert financial operator hunts for extreme asymmetry.

An asymmetric bet is one where the potential upside of a position greatly exceeds its potential downside. If you risk $1 for the chance of making $20, you’re making an asymmetric bet – especially if the odds are very good you could be right.

Amateur investors too often risk 100% of their money in the pursuit of a 10% return. These are horrible odds. But the financially and statistically illiterate take them. You might do better in a casino or most sports betting. It’s one of the key reasons most people struggle in the market.

I’ve always been more attracted to asymmetric bets… where I stand a good chance of making 10, 50, even 100 times the amount I’m risking. I’m not interested in even bets. I’m only taking the field if my potential upside is much, much greater than my potential downside.

Because of the extreme asymmetry gold stocks offer – because of their extreme upside potential when they’re cheap – you don’t have to take a big position in them to make a huge impact on your net worth. A modest investment of $25,000 right now could turn into $500,000 in five years. It has happened before and it will happen again.

Right now gold stocks are near a historic low. I’m buying them aggressively. At this point, it’s possible that the shares of a quality exploration company or a quality development company (i.e., one that has found a deposit and is advancing it toward production) could still go down 10%, 20%, 30%, or even 50%. But there’s an excellent chance that the same stock will go up by 10, 30, or even 50 times.

I hate to use such hard-to-believe numbers, but that is the way this market works.

When current government policies inflate the coming resource bubble, the odds are excellent we’ll be laughing all the way to the bank. Assuming the bank is still there…

No one, including me, knows that a gold mania is just around the corner. But having operated in this market for over 40 years, I can tell you this is a very reasonable time to be buying these volatile stocks. And it’s absolutely a great time to start educating yourself about them.

There’s an excellent chance a truly massive bubble is going to be ignited in this area. If so, the returns are going to be historic.

Good to know that Trump is good for making at least one of the stocks I own go up.

I have no thirst for the pm's and that makes me sad. If you play the SILVER bottom, you will do well.

Hi John

My "hold zone " is 17.39 to 23.52

If it moves outside that zone I buy or sell and the hold zone moves up or down gradually.

Discipline takes the emotion out of investing.

Re bottom fishing

If it went a bit lower but it might have bottomed.

I have set prices where I gradually buy and sell. Didn't quite reach it but close. I would add 5% more shares.
