Default Anyone Know Anything About Mike Stathis?
Who is this guy?
I came across some of his articles while searching Google and he seems
to be trashing precious metals and anyone who speaks for them, such as Schiff and Ron Paul.

Does he have any credibility?

I've never heard of him before, but he seems to have a lot of books and interviews etc.
Anyone know anything?

I believe I know who this fellow is now...

he falls into a group that Jim Willie lovingly calls "the deflationist knuckleheads"

Other members include

Mish Shedlock
Karl Denninger
Mike stathis
Robert Prechtor

& a few others...

They have been saying gold is all done since it was about $400 an ounce....

From Wiki:

Mike Stathis was born Moshe Stakinsky in Telaviv Israel in 1956. His father, who invented the crouton, was a recent immigrant from Czechoslavokia. His mother was a belly dancer of international repute, her stage name Le BelliBouton. He is a distant relative of Benjamin Hyman Bernanke, Chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank (USA) as his father's brother was Bernanke's sister's music teacher. Stathis graduated the Hebrew High School in Telaviv and then attended the Kosher Cooking Institute of Jerusalem, graduating in 1978 with high honors in dinner pastries [B.C. summa cum blintzes]. ....He is presently employed as an expert commentator on monetary policy and the economy by several mainstream internet news outlets.

yes I listened to him, now I remember, One of the things that he said was essentially "try and trade" your metals.

Which I think for most folks is not going to work, you are going to get wiped out on reactions....

I may have to listen to him again, I respect DBS a lot....

But I do remember, that I left that interview scratching my head.....

Hedge fund manager here who actualy knows Stathis and has worked with him for several years. His firm provides research and forecasting to our fund, and he is the best I've ever seen. We made a killing because of his forecasts shorting Fannie and Freddie and the banks back in 2007 and much more. Due to Stathis, our fund quadrupled in size over the past 4 years.

Too funny reading some of the responses here related to Stathis. Stathis has actually exposes these losers Mish and Prechtor and others like Schiff on his site. Also, you say he has been interviewed and has books which means nothing. He has actually be banned by the media because he speaks the truth. Everyone in the media including the guests are bought off. Get with the program son.

These guys you mention are con artists. Stathis has the best track record on the collapse than anyone in the world. I suggest you guys get up to speed and find out for yourself. Also, unlike the people pumping gold, Stathis has no bias and does not get any compensation in any form from gold, no gold ads no endorsements and he doesnt sell it. He actually advises people buy gold in his 2006 book America's Financial Apocalypse but started to warn people about the gold manipulators pumping it up a couple of years ago.

Funny too that this willie guy is a clown. He isnt even a pro, just some guy in his garage on a pc posting on gold sites. Stathis is one of the very top investment strategists on earth.

And he is not a deflationist. He predicted an inflationary depression in his 2006 book. Why dont you read it, that is if you know how to read. He also proves hyperinflation in the US is impossible.

Stathis is the only credible expert out there. The rest of these guys you hear about are con artists pumping gold. And when gold collapses you guys will go to your grave waitiing for it to recover and it wont.

Stathis is the real deal and if you dont follow what he says youll get blasted for sure.

If you dont think so, i suggest you check his track record and his reward of $100,000 for anyone who can produce other person in the world who can match his record.

and much more, way too much to mention...over 1000 articles. Anyway you guys can sit here and stay in your delusional world thinking gold and silver are going to the moon. The smart money already sold it and is buying land. I'll come back in a few years after gold has collapsed to 400/500 and read all the delusional propaganda. By the way, in my brief time here I already spotted several gold pumpers who are making up BS to try and get people to buy...so sad. Only fools try to manipulate people who have no money. The big money makes asset prices move, not Joe investor.




Large Sarge, here's some advice. The next time you try to judge someone, you should investigate their record fully or else you will look like a damn fool.

Later kids.

Interesting first post Franco and welcome to the board.

You shilling for Stathis? How much you getting for the promo?

Land is good, but all factors must be included. Property taxes would be the first factor to consider.

Shilling for Stathis? lol. Stathis is like the guys you never hear about who are the top dogs because they work with INSTITUTIONAL INVESTORS. They dont market to the retail sheep who watch TV. You should learn the difference. I was only setting the record straight pointing to facts since nothing but conjecture and inaccurate statements were being made.

As far as land, I'm not advising individuals to buy it. You need really deep pockets because the money is being made in farm land, not a few 100 acres but you need huge plots. The really big guys sold their gold andhave been for a couple of years and have been buying land and other things. But ill tell you this. Gold is approaching its peak and when it comes down its gonna come hard and stay low for 20 years. It make have already peaked. No one will know for sure for several years after it already has. Rule #1 of investing..BUY LOW and SELL HIGH. Gold is still very high. Even though it may head up a few hundred $, believe me when I tell you that the end of the gold bull is approaching.

First welcome, I quickly went over your links, Stathis called a top for GC at 1400,
I called a top on here of 1920 and we got 1880 on this run, there
is a link here somewhere, I think we just had an engineered bottom,
unfortunately I would love it to continue, but I think it is in, this RIGGED
bottom is much higher than your top for GC , ROFL !


Large Sarge, here's some advice. The next time you try to judge someone, you should investigate their record fully or else you will look like a damn fool.

Later kids.
" KIDS " , LOL ! Large Sarge was buying physical SI at $5.00.
Unfortunately I came in late in 2005/2006 and paid triple for my
stash, grin , LOL !

Hey NOOB, where do you think you are ?

We have no use for " institutional investors " nor their " advisers " ,
never have , never will, never needed them, we have been watching
a slow motion train wreck for years, we predicted the future successfully,
many have positioned themselves accordingly, and many have traded this successfully,
many buy land to homestead/live for self sufficiency, not for your reasons, etc,

This is the lions den NOOB !

Almost every commentator around has been taken apart going back.

Nobody gets a free pass.

Institutional investors are a big part of the problem.

"believe me when I tell you that the end of the gold bull is approaching."

Believe the FED ! CRIMEX ain't at work ! ROFL !

edit add,

Totally bogus article.
He is making an argument the metals are not manipulated to the downside.

http://www.avaresearch.com/avanew/ar...The-Media.html

Thesis

"propaganda delivered by an enormous network of gold hacks has been the primary driver of the bull market in gold. "

"
these brief periods of mania and panic have been followed by price corrections."

land is one of the most illiquid assets out there ,highly taxed,regulated,very public and you gotta have a politician or two in your back. Pocket to make a big deal fly

Meanwhile Gold is the most liquid,least taxed(if you hold the correct form) least regulated and most private form of wealth ownership out there.

You are smoking dust laced with Matzo Balls if you think land can trump Gold
