Show Highlights
  • Bob Hoye of Institutional Advisors rejoins the show with positive insights on the PMs sector noting a nascent cyclical bull market in the PMs miners.

  • Using data from the World Gold Council, the Middle East is the third largest gold consumer, eclipsing even the US.

  • Beginning in March 2017 new gold-friendly opportunities could facilitate sizable purchases of gold, silver and related commodities without violating Sharia law.
