Jay Taylor is the editor of J Taylor's Gold, Energy & Tech Stocks newsletter and host of the web-based radio show “Turning Hard Times into Good Times.” His interest in the role gold has played in U.S. monetary history led him to research gold and into analyzing and investing in junior gold shares.

In 1981 he began publishing his gold-orientated newsletter. His continuing interest in gold mining prompted him to study geology, supplementing his MBA in Finance & Investments. Throughout his career Mr. Taylor worked as a banker, including holding a job in the Mining and Metals Group of ING Barings in New York. In 1997 he resigned from ING Barings to devote himself full time to researching mining & technology stocks, writing his newsletter and assisting companies in raising venture capital.

In March of 2009, Jay began hosting the popular web radio show titled “Turning Hard Times into Good Times,” which features high profile guests who discuss leading economic issues of our day. The show also discusses investment opportunities primarily in the precious metals mining sector. Jay's web based show is now by far the most popular show on the Voice America Business channel with 150,000 to 200,000 monthly listeners. He interviews CEOs of public companies as well as some of the best known Wall Street analysts, authors and political/economic thinkers.

Jay is also a frequent guest on CNBC, Fox, Bloomberg and BNN and guest speaker at various mining conferences in the U.S., Canada, Switzerland and Asia.

Gold price volatility made to shake out gold investors

More and More People Questioning the Mainstream on COVID-19
