Bernanke's Suspicious Remarks on Gold

His dismissal of its importance is not very credible
Thursday, July 25, 2013, 7:33 PM

Recently, on July 18, 2013, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke told Congress a number of things about gold that make us wonder which one of two interpretations is correct: Is he really that out of touch? Or is he telling us lies with the bumbling skill of a four-year-old? » Read more

The Screaming Fundamentals For Owning Gold And Silver

The investment thesis for precious metals
Wednesday, June 29, 2011, 8:22 AM

This report lays out an investment thesis for gold and one for silver.  Various factors lead me to conclude that gold is one investment that you can park for the next ten or twenty years, confident that it will perform well. My timing and logic for both entering and finally exiting gold (and silver) as investments are laid out in the full report.
