February 21, 2018 // 0 Comments

I confess I am sick and tired of an all too common complaint out there in Punditland.  I’m sure you too have been subjected to this pathetic admission – here is an example I came across today:  Although I have been investing in precious metals since the late 1980s, I honestly have no idea where gold or silver will go from here.
