Overheard on Twitter

Over on Twitter, here were the top tweets about Gold:

  • From StayOffTheRoad1:

    The Gold Confication Act of ‘33 made it illegal to own more than 5 ounces of gold. Excess has to be sold to the government for its pegged price, about $20/oz.One year later, after they confiscated or “bought” everyone’s gold, they raised the gold price to $35/oz.

  • From myprecious999:

    @sc107sc @ArcadiaEconomic Equities went for a big dip. Think the $DXY and 10 year bond yields went up this week? But the $Gold price just shrugged them off. Do you think there is a rotation out of tech to mining?

  • From MAmedeker:

    The Agyapa is completely undervalued, considering the present gains from our royalties and the future forecasted metal prices, now the gold price is far higher than the previous years and the royalties will increase spontaneously from this year.
