2013 Will Go Down In History As THE Best Buying Opportunity for Gold & Silver Metals and Stocks – Ever!
The precious metals complex is arguably at its most bearish sentiment since the start of the bull market 12 years ago. Either the bull market is over or this will prove to be a tremendous buying opportunity. It’s clear that anyone who doesn’t believe in Gold for the long-term has sold and judging from the sentiment indicators, Gold is now in much stronger hands than when it was trading at these prices at the 2012 and 2011 lows.

Let's take a look at some charts that support my point of view]. Words: 908Read More »
