It is my firm belief that too many are watching the price of gold as the miners are telling us that there is a (possibly) new bull market just beginning.
The miners rolled over in 2011 before the price of silver and gold started turning and it looks like the reverse is happening now.
People would rather own gold and silver physically in bear corrections and prefer mining stocks in bulls.

companies producing it is only starting, so it's exceedingly important
to understand what's going on.
