    Seems she looks at commodity markets in a vacuum, would be beneficial to have a broader macro view that includes central bank intervention -clearly has some impact on the dmd/sup. + targets inflation

    Completely useless to me. Talked so fast, got me frustrated, turned it off. Am sure she has worthwhile things to say but if delivery is not on, what good is it?

    Very interesting views. It is clear however that her views have no conviction to them. Repeatedly says "if I'm wrong" or "if I get it wrong". Global data has been shocking so what has she missed?

    at times inconsistent in her arguments, especially exposed in her gold ones. which rates are going up, did she miss the negative interest rates?

    Hedge funds are getting hammered right now. I assume they pay for the best advise so I assume the best are wrong.

    Pretty good, she speaks really fast though haha. Don't agree on gold, gold imo - as Rickards said - is a chameleon. It doesn't always act as a commodity, it's starting to act as money now.

    I love to hear the counter argument on Gold. It would be great to see a debate between Ms Bengali and Rick Rule. I was impressed that she articulated her downside risk factors so well.

    She is a young Keynesian and will learn a lot as she goes. Hopefully.

    Wells Fargo has the largest exposure to energy debt. The dollar versus gold play will be interesting. Smart people on both sides. I think RP thinks $ rockets first then gold later if I am not mistaken

    Really smart Lady with strong opinion, but looks to me bit over confident... I am not quite sure about dollar strength story, but time will tell...

    Stronger dollar is certainly bad for gold, but also the global economy. Fed rate hikes only exacerbate concerns of shrinking dollar liquidity. This will be an interesting dynamic to watch.

    Not worried about energy exposure to US banks but what about European banks, who are not only poorly capitalized but also significantly exposed to a lot of other commodities?
