by John Rubino on February 8, 2013 · 11 comments

There are several ways to time the launch of a new exchange traded fund (ETF). One is to strike while a sector is hot, pull in a lot of trend-following money and accept that the fund’s performance might be mediocre, since the hotter the sector the more due it is for a correction. That’s how […]

The Stealth Hoodie: Another Reason to Like Silver

by John Rubino on February 6, 2013 · 14 comments

One of the compelling (and lately, reassuring) things about the silver investment thesis is that it works pretty much no matter what happens. If the financial system spins out of control capital will flow into precious metals as the last form of stable money. And if “normal” growth resumes, then tight silver supplies will run […]

Hedge fund manager Eric Sprott’s speech at this week’s Silver Summit turned a room full of nervous precious metals owners into pumped-up silver buyers.
