Are Silver and Gold ‘at the Flood’?

Are Silver and Gold ‘at the Flood’?

By David Smith, Money Metals Exchange There is a tide in the affairs of men… Thus, begins one of the most famous quotes ever uttered, taken from Shakespeare’s play, Julius Caesar. Brutus, talking to Cassius, says, “There is a tide in the affairs of men. Which taken at the flood, leads on to fortune…” A flood tide takes place at the very crest in the water’s height. Once the “tide turns,” there is no stopping its ebb until, much later, it reaches an extended, even a minus low.

This campaign is dragging whatever prestige is still associated with the Office of President into the mud. Few voters on either side bother to spend much time arguing the greatness of their candidate. When both Trump and Clinton carry more baggage than American Airlines, it’s easier to focus on their opponent’s shortcomings. The victor in this epically polarized contest will garner only tepid support from a minority of Americans. He […]

How Big Is Your Gold and Silver Picture?

Whether you surf the Internet for information about the precious metals and mining stocks or receive newsletters by snail mail, you’re exposed to predictions by all and sundry: How high will prices go? How long will it take? Will they remain elevated if/when they reach record nominal and/or inflation-adjusted highs? Truth be told, all of us are “inquiring minds who would like to know.” We want to believe that someone somewhere can predict the future. So we seek out gurus who might have special knowledge that puts us on the inside track. It could be on a site like GoldSeek.com, where newsletter writers publish a portion of their work a […]
