Earning a Good, Safe Yield on your Gold Holdings

On this week’s radio program, Keith Weiner visits for the first time while Darin Wagner, Chen Lin and Michael Oliver return.

One of the major reasons given by anti-gold bugs for not owning gold is that it doesn’t provide earnings. But now, even the “no yield” excuse of gold haters has become invalid thanks to the entrepreneurial abilities of Keith Weiner in applying the laws of nature’s markets. His Monetary Metals firm is allowing investors to earn between 2.5% and 3.75% annual returns on their gold holdings with relatively low risk. Those are hefty yields, especially when the underlying purchasing power of gold increases over time vis-à-vis fiat currencies. Keith explains how you can earn solid returns on your gold holdings.

Darin talks about Balmoral’s high grade gold discovery in Quebec and Michael provides his always helpful insights into gold and other key markets. Chen Lin also appears to discuss Sorrento and another one of his energy picks.

What is Chen Selling?”  Chen’s track record has been phenomenal!  In one account we track in which he used no leverage, he was able to grow $5,411 starting in 2002 to over $2.2 million by the end of 2012.  You can visit his website at http://chenpicks.com

In the 1980’s Oliver began to develop his own momentum-based method of technical analysis. In 1987 Oliver, along with his futures client accounts (Oliver had trading POA) technically anticipated and captured the Crash. Oliver began to realize that his emergent momentum-structural-based tools should be further developed into a full analytic methodology.
