Jay Taylor is the editor of J Taylor's Gold, Energy & Tech Stocks newsletter and host of the web-based radio show “Turning Hard Times into Good Times.” His interest in the role gold has played in U.S. monetary history led him to research gold and into analyzing and investing in junior gold shares.

In 1981 he began publishing his gold-orientated newsletter. His continuing interest in gold mining prompted him to study geology, supplementing his MBA in Finance & Investments. Throughout his career Mr. Taylor worked as a banker, including holding a job in the Mining and Metals Group of ING Barings in New York. In 1997 he resigned from ING Barings to devote himself full time to researching mining & technology stocks, writing his newsletter and assisting companies in raising venture capital.

In March of 2009, Jay began hosting the popular web radio show titled “Turning Hard Times into Good Times,” which features high profile guests who discuss leading economic issues of our day. The show also discusses investment opportunities primarily in the precious metals mining sector. Jay's web based show is now by far the most popular show on the Voice America Business channel with 150,000 to 200,000 monthly listeners. He interviews CEOs of public companies as well as some of the best known Wall Street analysts, authors and political/economic thinkers.

Jay is also a frequent guest on CNBC, Fox, Bloomberg and BNN and guest speaker at various mining conferences in the U.S., Canada, Switzerland and Asia.

Sanctions Make Russia Stronger And The Dollar Weaker

There is much I like about Donald Trump. His desire to protect American Sovereignty, to protect U.S. Borders and avoid foolish wars like those self-destructive events in Iraq, Libya and elsewhere, that have in fact made America weaker financially and morally. For sure I praise President Trump’s decision this past […]

Currency Wars Are Rocketing Gold Higher

Some investors may think prospects of war with Iran are triggering gold’s explosive move above key resistance levels. But it seems clear that what is really causing gold to become a go to monetary metal once again are currency wars that have been beginning to occur but are now breaking […]

Socialism and the Great American Economic Growth Myth

I could not help but pass along this article by Lance Roberts of RealInvestmentAdvice.com and quote it here because it outlines the history of democracies and why given human nature, that form of government has a limited average lifespan of around 200 years. Since America was founded in 1776 we […]

I invited five of my favorite companies covered in J Taylor’s Gold, Energy & Tech Stocks to the May 24 & 25 Metals Investor Forum in Vancouver. Following is a brief description of each of those companies as well as my Back Stage Interview with a member of each company’s […]

The Challenge for Christians

The challenge for us Christians is that it is becoming increasingly unfashionable to be a Christian in the western world. https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-04-24/burning-notre-dame-and-destruction-christian-europe In other words, the world is getting darker. It may become increasingly challenging not only to be a Christian but simply to call yourself a Christian. But then I […]

Time, Money and Gold

An excellent video (The Golden Question: Time vs. Money) with Alasdair Macleod, Head of Research for GoldMoney, and Jan Skoyles, Gold Markets analyst,  discussing time, fiat money, Keynes, bubbles, debt, fiat money and, last but not least, gold. At 13:30 m into the video a segment where an infograph explains […]

My Interviews with Companies I Brought to the MIF

Below are links to the presentations of the companies I brought to the MIF in Toronto in early March, which are covered in my newsletter and are some of my favorites, as well as my one-to-one interview with each one of them.  You can just click on each of them […]

Why I Am a Gold Bug!

Once again I attended and did a presentation at the MIF March 2-3, 2019, in Toronto, which you can watch in youtube (see below).  My presentation explains why I keep believing in gold and proudly call myself a gold bug. Click here

Under “Basel III” Rules, Gold Becomes Money!

Thanks to Chris Powell of the Gold Anti Trust Action committee (GATA), I was alerted to the fact that on March 29th, new BIS rules, termed “Basel III,” will go into effect. Those rules will allow physical gold bullion (but not paper gold) to be on a par with cash […]

The Fragility of Fiat Currencies vs. the Gold Standard

In his article of February 21 Alasdair Macleod said “In my last Goldmoney article, I explained why the monetary policies of inflationist economists and policy makers would end up destroying fiat currencies. The destruction will come from ordinary people, who are forced by law to use the state’s money for […]

Why You Stay Long Gold Now

In an article I wrote for my subscribers in my monthly newsletter, I showed why Michael Oliver says you should stay long gold now. The gold charts put out that week by Michael Oliver illustrate his work very well. The top chart is a weekly price chart. The bottom chart […]

Safe Haven Market for 2019?

Which Safe Haven Market Will Dominate in 2019? In my January 2019 Metals Investor Forum Speech, I explain why I think money may flow into gold as well as U.S. Treasuries as U.S. equities enter a prolonged bear market in 2019. Watch on Youtube here https://t.co/8JGSRvJ76d The topic assumes 2019 […]

Long-Term Investors: Pause, Look, Consider…

So you think stocks are a far superior investment to gold right? Wrong! Over the past 20 years, gold has massively outperformed stocks. True, the S&P has been quite a bit better than gold since 2011, but Michael Oliver’s very dependable momentum and structure metrics suggest the yellow metal is […]

Reflections on the Economy and the Markets

We have gotten off to a reasonably good start so far in 2019. What has become fairly obvious is that the Fed, even under Jay Powell, is held hostage to the stock market. The fear is of course that we will have another financial crisis. So, even a reasonably free-market-oriented […]

Which Safe Haven Markets Will Dominate in 2019?

So far in 2019, the equity markets have been characterized by very substantial volatility as stocks are entering what I think will be a very significant bear market. With equities heading into dangerous territory, traditional safe havens like U.S. Treasuries, and to a lesser extent gold, have benefitted. As we […]

Why Massive upside for Novo Resources from $2.00?

On December 20, 2018 Novo Resources put out a news release that triggered gains of as much as 40% within minutes of the open. Why so? Part of the reason, no doubt, had to do with a very strong gold bullion market. But why did a 170-tonne bulk sample grading […]

American Blacks Truly Seeking to Be Free! Very Encouraging!

In a country that is so divided and a media that has so much bias, the discovery of Black Community News has lightened my soul. This is extremely encouraging because many of my black brothers and sisters are discovering and demanding the retention of very basic American values that prompted […]

A New “SWIFT” For Russia And China Selling Treasuries

What does this mean?  How does it affect us? Russia and foreign banks are accepting the new alternative SWIFT that Russia started working on in 2014 (https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-10-19/foreign-banks-are-embracing-russias-alternative-swift-moscow-says). A very important move that few in the main stream media know or care to know anything about, mostly because they are so […]
