Show Highlights

  • Top money manager, John Ing recently presented to China his forecast for $2,200 an ounce. Our guest is bullish on gold, in the LT.
  • Bob Hoye notes that during every previous post bubble contraction, the real price of gold has ascended, making the PMs a solid portfolio asset, today.
  • Although the Greenback remains relatively strong, eventually the senior currency will be overcome by an inflationary economic maelstrom.
  • The concept of sentient robots / computers has lingered for over 100 years - from Asimov, Frank Herbert and Arthur C. Clarke to Philip K. Dick.
  • The concept of intelligent machines has enthralled readers and moviegoers alike.
  • TV shows such as Person of Interest as well as the UK drama, Humans 2.0 put a modern spin on the issue.
  • IBM's Deep Mind A.I, Alpha-Go defeated the world's Go Grandmaster, an event not expected for at least 10 years.
  • At the core of Deep Mind is a general purpose expert system; basically the program runs simulations.
  • Takeaway point: by allowing the A.I. to learn like a child via trial and error the general purpose A.I. is applicable to any situation.
  • A.I. appears to be on the cusp of crossing the sentience threshold (note: purely speculative).
  • It is conceivable that just such a new life-form may already dwell in the Deep Net, accumulating Bitcoins, building a virtual safe world for its digital progeny.
  • Andy Schectman of Miles Franklin Institute ($6 billion in sales) outlines why every investor should diversify their PMs holdings via an offshore account.
  • In 1933, President Roosevelt announced an executive order designed to confiscate gold that included at $10,000 fine.
  • The gold / silver ETFs are a modern equivalent to the executive order, indirectly confiscating the capital that would otherwise be directed to physical PMs.
  • The ideal alternative involves PMs ownership outside the USA via Brinks-Canada, a trusted / respected name in secure storage.
  • Miles Franklin negotiated a one-of-a-kind, fixed rate structure with 100% separate accounts as an added layer of safety.
  • Key point: Miles Franklin holds all client PMs and or cash in a large Brinks security box, which makes it fully insured and non-reportable to authorities.
  • The next Big Thing, appears to be The Internet of Things (IoT), an emerging technology that facilitates communications among virtually all devices.
  • IoT is poised to eclipse the growth of mobile phones, computers, laptops and the internet - a related ETF SNSR could capture much of the potential.

Guest Biographies

Andy Schectman

Miles Franklin

Miles Franklins' philosophy can be summed up in three words: VALUE, INTEGRITY and CREATIVITY. Value refers to our low overhead and low mark-up approach to doing business. Integrity means what it says: We do what we say and say what we do. Our advice is determined by individual customer needs and we take the time to find out what is suitable for each investor. Because of this approach our reputation throughout the industry is the highest caliber. Creativity is everybody’s favorite word. At Miles Franklin, we see things in a way that other companies do not. We offer solutions (including off shore investing) that go far beyond the ordinary coin dealer. This is our philosophy. It's who we are.


Every member of our staff has no less than 10 years of experience in the precious metals industry. We are all students of the economy. Most companies in the precious metals industry will tell you what to buy. We tell you why you need to buy it. We are proud to take the time to educate our clients in economics and world events, as well as in various products.
We offer all of the available types of bullion, including U.S and foreign gold, silver and platinum.

No order is too big or too small for us. Also, talk to us about domestic and foreign storage.


We provide a selection of reports on the economy, precious metals and the Swiss Franc. We also publish a well received newsletter 8-12 times a year (recent back issues can be found on this website).


Our pricing is competitive with anyone in the industry. We will not lose an order because of pricing. We are in business to make money, but we believe in offering our clients a price structure that allows them to come out ahead. This is not always the case in our industry.


The following financial newsletters have recommend Miles Franklin: David Morgan from the, The Safe Wealth Group, Elliott Wave International, The Whole Investor Report, and the U.S & World Early Warning Report.

Bob Hoye

Institutional Investors

With a degree in geophysics and a number of fascinating summers in mining exploration, one winter in "the bush" quickly led Bob into the financial markets. This included experience on the trading desk and in the research department of a large investment dealer, which led to institutional stock and bond sales.

Bob's review of financial history provided the forecasting models designed to anticipate significant trend reversals in the sometimes alarming volatility typical of the transition from rampant speculation in tangible assets to fabulous speculation in financial assets.

In anticipation of the latter opportunity, a monthly publication for financial institutions was started in January 1982.

This competently covered the stock market, the yield curve, credit spreads as well as metal and energy prices.

In 1998 the Institutional Advisors website was started as a forum for unique and reliable financial research.
