Among the many gold bulls are ample people who have a soft spot for silver as well. Jim Wilie CB, best known as the “Golden Jackass”, firmly believes that both precious metals will ride off into a successful sunset together. 

The Career of Jim Willie

Precious metals enthusiasts and aficionado will have heard of Jim Willie before. He is a very popular analyst of the economy and financial markets. Moreover, his content is often very insightful, catering to both newcomers and industry veterans alike. 

During his regular working career, Jim focused on three fields of statistical practice. He worked for multiple firms, including Digital Equipment Corp and Staples HQ. During his stints, he also focused on quality control procedures – some of which are used globally today – and marketing research. Forecasting and sales analysis were added to his repertoire later on. 

After leaving the industry, Willie continued to work on his own website, titled Golden Jackass. Most of the content found on this platform touches upon very different topics. Another venture run by Jim is The Hat Trick letter, a subscription-based newsletter service. 

Even today, Jim is still active in the financial world, primarily as a writer and analyst. He is happy to share his opinions on gold, silver, and a lot of other topics through various publications. All in all, he is one of the most fascinating individuals in the precious metals industry.

Jim Willie on Gold

There are many intrinsics of the gol market which deserve to be highlighted. Simply looking at a price chart only tells a sliver of the entire story. Jim Willie recently shared some interesting opinions on what is happening to the gold price and what could be happening to it in the very near future.

As one would expect, he expects a big impact due to COVID-19. Several things have changed in the financial sector, although others have remained the exact same. Even today, gold is used in trading and banking reserves. Until that situation changes, keeping the gold price down will prove virtually impossible. 

Jim Wille on Silver

In a very recent YouTube interview, Jim Willie gave some very interesting opinions on silver as well. He mentioned how both silver and gold are primed for launch, indicating that the future prices of both precious metals may be much higher compared to where they are today. 

Especially silver seems to be in a very good position to push higher. It has industrial use cases which gold doesn’t necessarily have, especially during the post-COVID-19 recovery phase. The coming year and a half will prove rather remarkable for all precious metals. Big things are looming on the horizon.
