Gold Makes Record High And Targets $6,000 In New Bull Cycle

Gold And Silver Investors Should Be Wary Of Trade Talk Optimism And Buy The Dip
The stock market is rallying and precious metals are correcting sharply today. The prevailing trade is risk-on once again.

Litecoin tends to adopt and test new technologies before Bitcoin. Segwit, Lightning and now confidential transactions, MW, privacy features, scaling tech, etc. After Litecoin shows it can work, Bitcoin adopts the tech at a later date.

Gold Vs Gold Stocks: Bullish Anomaly Developing?
7 years ago

Well, I find it rude that after I spent hours on research and analysis and provided the info for free, a reader complains about possibly having to read a few lines of promotional material on my site. It is par for the course to see an ad or promotional material on a site providing desired information for free. But to request that I send her stock picks because she "doesn't like having to go to your site (and probably subjecting myself to a sales pitch)" is a little rich. And no Kate, taking a second to follow or click on a share button is not a fair exchange of value for all of the time it takes to identify the best in breed mining stocks amongst a field of hundreds of companies.

But since you weren't rude Wendell, other than calling me 'guy', here are some of the top mining stocks to look into: GG, ABX, YAM, NEM. A better business model and usually better returns can be had from streamers or royalty stocks such as SLW, FNV, RGLD. They make an upfront payment for a % of future production or revenue. Diversified exposure is possible via an ETF like GDX or GDXJ.

Best of luck!
