Angels At His Head, And Angels At His Feet, Just Like A Little Babe, Our Little Bear Does Sleep. If by pure chance the persistent and severe attack on the prices of gold and silver is an inverse measure of the degree of general complacency and a belief of being in...
Last week's trading saw the gold market holding in more of a sideways-to-down pattern, with the metal forming its high in Monday's session - doing so with the tag of the 1749.40 figure (June, 2021 contract). From there, a decline was seen into Thursday's session, here...
Over the years I’ve written almost ad nauseum about the crazy I see (and saw) around me as a fund manager, family office principal and individual investor. In short, there a great deal of things which, as our advisory colleague, Grant Williams, would say: Makes me go...
"But first we begin with Breaking News: The S&P 500 is at a record-closing high following the largest drop in Personal Spending in nearly a year..." So it hasn't crashed, yet...
