Cyberspace has been thick with forecasts for 2015. In the old media, copious amounts of ink have been spilled on predictions for the New Year. But few predictors have the track record of Ron Paul. Authoritative figures of the governing classes as august as Alan Greenspan and Ben Bernanke failed to see the biggest economic cataclysm since the Great Depression…

In a moment, I’ll give you the lowdown on what’s happening in gold, silver and that other market everyone is so amazed with right now — the price of crude oil. But first, a more important message that I want to bring to bear: Later this year, the U.S. equity markets will enter a new bull market, the likes of…

Few people have been more bearish on the euro currency (or the yen) than me. Nor have many been as firmly parked on the sidelines in gold or silver, with nothing…

The pileup of stocks in the first two weeks of 2015 has furrowed a lot of brows but it should not be much of a mystery.
