E.B. Tucker: New All Time High for Gold Will Arrive Next Year
E.B. discusses his upbringing and early schooling and how it shaped his contrarian approach. He started learning about gold from a friend when it was around $300 and became increasingly interested in the market as the world went through various economic shocks and wars. He says, “Your experiences shape you, and they are cumulative. Therefore it’s important with whom and how you spend your time.”
E.B. has made the bulk of his money on the more obvious straightforward trades. Currently, an example would be the gold to silver ratio, which is hovering around eighty. This is a high probability trade that you can play with using either the physical or the miners.
Gold investors are currently in a super-minority with most of Wall Street ridiculing the sector. There is a growing awareness curve, but we are very early in that cycle. Momentum indicators are showing that we are in a new bull market, but most investors won’t take notice until we take out the past highs. He thinks this will happen next year.
E.B. says, “Doug Casey is a personal friend and an amazing guy to work alongside.” Doug takes a very hands-on approach to investments by networking and watching what everyone is doing.
E.B. likes to judge people by their bookshelf, and for him, the one book that philosophically changed his life was “The Fountainhead” by Ayn Rand. Currently, he is reading a book called “Peace Is Every Step” by Thich Nhat Hanh, which is a book on mindfulness and understanding your inner dialog. Exploring that internal dialog can help improve your investment results.
E.B. explains how the royalty business works and the advantages it brings due to leveraging the price of gold.
