    @thrishul Adani green with EPS 1.65 is priced 10 times it Book value. From onion price to Gold price , everything moves based on supply and demand itself. The surge can be created by various factors like low P/E ,high EPS or any other ratio. If something is excess then it will be low value

    @PeterSchiff You started saying it is a bubble and was laughing on your podcast when it surpassed gold price per ounce. Still you are saying when you can buy more than 17 ounces of gold per bitcoin. Put a price of bitcoin when you will say you were wrong. You will be wrong every time

  • From Galactic_Trader:

    @Caseforsilver Historically, #silver spikes don’t last nearly as long as #gold price spikes. So silver miners don’t get an opportunity to profit from the high prices. Also, most silver miners are hybrids and produce just as much gold and other base metals. Gold rises & finds a higher plateau.
