What Will Happen To The Precious Metals When this Bubble Pops?

As the Mainstream financial media continues to promote the biggest market bubble in history, only a small fraction of investors are prepared for the disaster when it finally POPS.

The cheating became hard to ignore after Deutsche Bank turned over voice recordings and 350,000 pages of documents which revealed bank trading desks being run like the back office of a crooked […]

Dr. Marc Faber, editor and publisher, The Gloom, Boom & Doom Report (4/7/17): “I think that the economy is not going to do as well as people expect… My sense is that the economy in the U.S. is weakening and not strengthening.” “Hard assets such as precious metals are at the historical low point compared to financial assets, so I think going forward there’s a huge discrepancy in performance between financial assets and gold.

Precious metals investors believing the White House “Grandiose plans”, of making American great again, have cut back seriously on their precious metals buying.
