  • From Joutein:

    @DharPrabin @ayewaken @coinbase It’s called shorting. Basically you lend things you think is overvalued, sell right away and buy back in later. Difference is your profit. I.e. You borrow a Gold bar and sell it for 2000 then the Gold price drops to 1000 so you buy it back at 1000 and give it back. 1000 profit

  • From GoldTelegraph_:

    Prior to 1934 the gold price was fixed at $20.67/ounce. After America confiscated gold… from a stroke of a pen, gold was revalued to $35 representing a 70% increase. One way to pay back debt… A gold revaluation. Central banks globally hold plenty of it…

  • From DavidFi_:

    Newgold shows huge progress in turning around Rainy River. As operating doubts subside and investors seek max leverage to a rising gold price it ends the year as the best performer in the GDX.
    – A hit, a palpable hit! NG +140%, best in GDX.
