    Brett, I actually spoke to her yesterday. I had written a reply to her query. Once she found out I was a broker/dealer, she said she couldn’t use my help because of perceived bias. She, as a journalist, went so far as to say she disagrees with me (I’m used to it as I was critiquing financial advisors and their adherence to what proper diversification meant as I was one of them for 20 years).

    Contrarian or not because of her query, the data spoke to me that caution was warranted. Gold down over $40 and silver over $2 as I type…

    I’ll be happy to send you a copy of my book to see if you agree with my critique of financial advisors and my economic outlook. Let me know…
