Participation here is welcome to all, novices and pros, as the seeking of knowledge should be accompanied by a willingness to share it too. Moreover, we sometimes learn more about our own reasoning and motivations when we try to explain them to others who may ask questions.
For background, this board originated for the benefit of those who understood that what happened in 2020 is bringing a boom in gold and silver stocks which is without precedent. Phase I of this period ended early in 2022 being followed by consolidation.
From mid-March 2020 to nearly the end of July of that year, the price of silver rose 100 percent. The price of gold went up over 30 percent. Setting aside peripheral reasons for these moves, the larger part of that arose from a massive expansion of printing-press money, along with the artificial suppression of interest rates in the US. The spending continues at ever faster rates.
Though the Federal Reserve began to push interest rates higher in Q1 of 2022, inflationary pressures on the US and global economy remain. Moreover, and as of March 2023, financial institutions across the world began renewed stability risks of an extreme nature (pushing up the risks for recession or worse). These things are very strongly supportive of higher precious metals prices even as interest rates increases may be slowing globally, for now.
Meanwhile, global economic conditions and military belligerencies worsen as does volatility in currency markets.
