In The Woods

Though the past two weeks have serves to ease some of the pressure on the metals, we are far from out of the woods. Particularly in silver, moving back above a key technical barrier would be very important so be sure to watch the action today and then be sure to make note of the weekly close.

A2A with Yours Truly

Every 3-4 months, we like to do these A2As with your host acting as guest, as well. Always some interesting questions on the collective mind of Turdville and today was no different.
