We had huge problems with various companies, whether it was GE or PG or the FANGS … And you had this sense that the markets were different. And, of course, then we roar into this week, and we just give them the biggest bop of all time with 800 points on Tuesday. And then yesterday we were down, at one time, 800 points … so there’s a lot of things shaping up that would take people to gold.” </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-datestamp field-field-article-published-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Friday, December 7th</span> </div> </div> </div> <p><span style="color: #000000;">On this edition of the Wrap-Up, you’ll hear: </span></p><p class="MsoNormal" style="margin-left: .5in; text-indent: -25.0pt; line-height: 120%; mso-list: l0 level1 lfo1; tab-stops: 11.0pt .5in 1.0in 1.5in 2.0in 2.5in 3.0in;"><span style="color: #000000;"> • How the Brexit vote could affect a December rally for gold </span></p><p><a href="http://silverseek.com/commentary/%E2%80%9C-date-which-will-live-infamy%E2%80%9D-will-december-7th-be-good-gold-weekly-wrap-17507" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Fri, 07 Dec 2018 20:26:14 +0000 Eric Sprott 17507 at http://silverseek.com COT Silver Report - November 30, 2018 http://silverseek.com/commentary/cot-silver-report-november-30-2018-17501 <div class="field field-type-text field-field-article-snippet"> <div class="field-label">Snippet:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> COT Silver Report - November 30, 2018 </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-datestamp field-field-article-published-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Friday, November 30th</span> </div> </div> </div> <p class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: center; margin: 0in 0in 0pt;" align="center">&nbsp;</p><p><a href="http://silverseek.com/commentary/cot-silver-report-november-30-2018-17501" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Fri, 30 Nov 2018 20:15:32 +0000 SilverCOTReport 17501 at http://silverseek.com Why Right Now Is The Best Time To Add Gold And Silver Bullion To Your Portfolio - Weekly Wrap - Up http://silverseek.com/commentary/why-right-now-best-time-add-gold-and-silver-bullion-your-portfolio-weekly-wrap-17500 <div class="field field-type-text field-field-article-snippet"> <div class="field-label">Snippet:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> “Typically, the guys who run the COMEX—which is the Commercials—always end up that the price is at what we call ‘Max Pain.’ Max Pain is where the individual investor loses the most money.
