For 2019, four months (plus three trading days in May) are in the books. And the wallflower at this year's Dance of the Markets so far is Gold, essentially "unch" from where it finished 2018 (at 1285), settling out the week yesterday (...
Do you remember "When E. F. Hutton talks, people listen"? Decades later, today we might say: "When Goldman opines, it goes online" ... or something like that.
Returning to San Francisco is always tough enough, but try this for a bring-down: well into our 10th year of faithfully penning The Gold Update without a single Saturday miss, en route (for those of you scoring at home) toward edition No....
Greetings from glorious Squaw Valley, the snow depth in which is a great lesson for Gold to follow. Since our first strapping on the slats back here in '68 -- and in chatting with the ski patrol (who best know) during this present stint...
