Gold & Silver News: ZeroHedge Feed

This is a feed of recent posts and news articles from ZeroHedge. ZeroHedge is “Anti-Keynesian” in scope, With an often hilarious snarkiness, ZeroHedge provides a not-so mainstream perspective on Wall Street, finance and the global economic condition through a prolific output of detailed, thoughtful and timely commentary. Articles are posted by the pseudonym Tyler Durden, from the movie “Fight Club.” Discussion is robust and not for the faint of heart.

Interestingly, and this observation isn’t supported by any analysis, just cursory glance type observation, the number of gold and silver articles seem to have declined in late-2014 / early 2015. When they do appear, there are more hostile responses in the comments section, rather than the endless littany of purely positive comments. Given that bullish gold / silver news seemed to dominate ZH a few years back, perhaps the current state can serve as a contrarian indicator that metals will continue to scream higher in 2015.

    S&P Futures Surge Above 3,000 Amid Confusion Over Successful Brexit Deal "Brexit’s the only show in town today" - Rabobank FX strategist Lyn Graham-Taylor.
