Gold will finish with a slight loss; silver with a larger loss just shy of 10%. It could have been worse. Sentiment toward…

Money, Fake Money, & Sound Money

Money, Fake Money, & Sound Money By Jp Cortez Americans no longer carry gold and silver money in our pockets and purses as our grandparents did. But we still carry the history, legacy, and spirit of those gold and silver coins in our language. “Sound money” embodies a clear message recognized for centuries around the world. It describes the musical, metallic ring of a gold, silver, or copper coin dropped on any hard surface of glass, stone, wood, or metal. Sound money literally refers to real wealth, with a natural,…

Contrarians See Precious Metals Opportunity in Negative Sentiment

Contrarians See Precious Metals Opportunity in Negative Sentiment By Stefan Gleason Gold and silver markets entered this summer with sentiment toward the metals in something of a deep freeze.

The long, protracted stalemate between bulls and bears has frustrated metals investors and, frankly, bored the public. As a consequence, bullion buying volumes dipped.
