Silver Correction Coming…
Silver prices are due for a correction some time soon, within a month I predict. We keep hearing stories about tight supply when the fact is that in the retail market of bars of 100 ounces or less there seems to be no problem.

Does Saudi Arabia Know Something We Don’t?
With the crisis in the Middle East growing on a daily basis, Saudi Arabia recently announced that they would pick up the slack. But, they can’t.
