While the mainstream media in the US seems to rarely talk about the gold and silver markets, it was interesting to see a report by CNBC's Jim Cramer address how now could be the time to buy gold.

Have you ever wondered what the yield curve’s favorite song is? Neither have I, but I bet that in July it was Britney Spears’ hit, Oops, I Did It Again! Indeed, the yield curve inverted again last month, for the second time in 2022. It means that long-term rates fell...
The Friday jobs report could bring a pause in the current rallies but then I think we rally right into September!

The real price of gold has started to trend higher. When we say “real” price of gold, we refer to gold’s performance against the other asset classes and markets. We monitor gold’s performance against the stock market, foreign currencies, and commodities.

Two weeks ago, I wrote about the potential for a rally in gold stocks. They were extremely oversold, trading at support, and the selling was abating. Precious Metals bottomed before the Fed decision last week and jumped higher following the decision. This week they...
