A2A with "Denver" Dave Kranzler

With so many markets in turmoil, I thought that today was the perfect time to visit again with our pal, "Denver" Dave Kranzler of "The Golden Truth" and Investment Research Dynamics. Boy was I ever right. If you want the straight skinny, please be sure to listen to this recorded podcast.
