    @StanH2443 There’s a lot of that at the moment across most Gold stocks, pricing in the end of the Gold bull market. We are only $130 off the ATH’s in AUD Gold price, but many stocks are in bear markets. Like you said need to wait it out.

  • From MtBenJami:

    @JerichoJudson @zerohedge Thats not how supply and demand worksSupply rate only increases if it becomes more economical/easier to mine or the gold value makes it profitable to prioritise (its a resource trade off)Increasing rates of gold supply are driven by technology advances & increasing gold price

  • From Am_Goldstein:
