Good points. That may or may not help you or me if Bill Gates ,Bill Gross is buying /investing in gold /GLD or silver/SLV. Because I agree with Rich ''TURTLE'' Dennis-do your own research.
However I respect Bill Gross work habbits[generally speaking]that have done well in money management over many, many years.
That OX /Charles Schwab fixed income manager who is bearish or now neutral on bonds, she maybe right ; i simply do not know her track record.With the exception of Merideth on ''C'', muni bonds [Citigroup...], most on Wall Street will not say sell.LOL
I like medium/ long term trends, not exactly like Mr Bunker Hunt.
But Bunker Hunt was right on the long term trend mostly. But try not to get in a fight with Moses, Charleston Heston, or the Chicago exchanges...LOL
