It’s Time To Buy Dirty Coal…

In this week’s Dirty Dozen we look at a leaky ARK, an obvious short, a major inventory shortage, BDI making decade highs, coal on a tear, and a few inverted H&S bottoms, plus more…

  1. As you know, we became big gold/silver bulls back in March. We think the market is gearing up for its next major run higher. With that said, important bases often take time to form and gold is up against the upper range of its 10-month bull flag. If yields pop here, we could see gold chop sideways/lower here for a bit.
