PODCAST: Is Your Overhead Preventing Your Success?

June 6, 2018


This week, Jerry and Jennifer Robinson ask: Is your monthly outflow (or overhead) preventing you from reaching your financial goals? Since breaking free from the "consumption trap" back in 2012, Jerry and Jennifer Robinson have been on a mission to help others break free so that they can achieve their financial goals. Also, precious metals advisor Tom Cloud explains how gold prices work, with a brief explanation of Spot Price vs Premium vs Commission. And later, financial advisor Mike Mitchell addresses a listener question: "I have a 403b retirement plan with $250,000 in it. Can this amount be rolled over to another self-directed retirement vehicle?"

How Do Gold Prices Really Work? w/Tom Cloud
Segment begins at 30:10

With over 40 years of market experience, precious metals expert Tom Cloud brings us his perspective of what lies ahead for gold and silver. Today, he explains the difference between the spot price, the premium, and the commission.

  • The spot price is the market price
  • The premium is what a dealer (like Tom) pays for the metal over the spot price
  • The commission is the dealer’s markup (on top of the spot price and premium)
  • The retail buyer’s price is the spot price + the premium + the commission
