Melman on Gold & Silver
February 2015 by Leonard MelmanWhy, if America’s economic performance is advancing steadily…are two especially sensitive and widely-used commodities performing so poorly?
If precious metals miners and prospectors were looking for a series of dramatic events to usher in the first two weeks of 2016, they have not been disappointed.
The most impressive fact about gold’s performance during 2016 is the yellow metal’s ability to withstand news shocks, hold on to previous gains and gradually move to new, higher levels.
From our precious metals point of view, I would note that if the production of these metals fails to meet demand, prices will likely rise, perhaps very smartly, thereby fueling additional increments of future inflation.
That is one of the problems with much of the so-called objective information we regularly receive—it is so tinged with partisanship that much of it can barely be believed...
To say that the international environmental community took exception to President Trump’s decision to remove America from the 2016 Paris Accord would be an understatement of enormous proportions.
