Mega Investors Loading up on Gold - Are They Cornering the Gold Market?

China has become a debt crisis waiting to happen. Central banks in Europe have deployed negative interest rates that rapidly erode value.

One of the most important factors that will continue to impact post-election investor behavior will be the Fed’s rate hike trajectory in 2017.

Gold and Silver Bull Market Correction - The Cause & Eventual Powerful Rallies

This is a bull market, and bull markets naturally experience corrections. Don’t let the correction knock you out of your positions, or prevent you from buying the dip.

Why Gold and Silver Could Outperform Every Other Asset Class in 2014

What will set off an explosive rally in gold and silver remains to be seen but there are plenty of potential triggers including war in the Ukraine or South Korea, as well as the significant financial risk of collapsing asset bubbles engineered by the extremely loose monetary policies of the world’s central banks.
