Melman on Gold & Silver

Once all of the pros and cons are considered, many miners and prospectors have discovered the so-called “Limited Liability Company” is the most profitable operating entity for their venture.
If the government can totally ignore the reality of exceeding the national debt limit, we can only wonder what all the current fuss relating to extending that limit is all about.
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.
It should come as no surprise that gold and silver acted similarly, rising sharply during the early hours of the crisis and retreating as tensions abated.
