Strange Things Are Happening

April 09, 2020

There truly are strange things occurring in gold and silver, things I not only have never observed previously, but also nearly impossible to explain in rational terms.

Unprecedented Demand For Silver Bullion Will Push Prices Higher

March 24, 2020

The precious metals market continues to experience unprecedented demand for silver bullion products. Even with the Fed increasing its liquidity injections by providing “Open-ended” QE to infinity, the Dow Jones Index today is still selling off considerably…. down 900+ points.
