Copper - True Economy Indicator & a Better Inflation Hedge than Gold

When it comes to inflation, which can erode the value of portfolios that don’t keep pace with rising consumer prices, anyone who bought gold as a hedge over the past 25 years missed out on a much better deal — copper.

Paper Gold Bomb Detonated when World's largest Buyers were Closed - Why?

The day was well chosen: Two of the largest buyers of physical gold in the world, India + Turkey, were closed for the observance of a religious holiday.

Whether you should buy silver or not really depends on where you think base metals will go for the remainder of 2017.

I believe that this most recent drop in oil prices is not being caused by the actual fundamentals of supply and demand.
