Kitco Commentaries | Opinions, Ideas and Markets Talk
Featuring views and opinions written by market professionals, not staff journalists.
Forty years ago I broke into this industry as a markets reporter on the trading floor of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange. As a cub reporter, one of the first things I learned from the professional traders on the floor was the value of technical analysis of the price charts. Virtually every trader on the floor of the CME employed some form of chart analysis in their trading methodologies--and relied upon the charts and technical analysis for better market entry and exit points. You should be doing the same. If you are a gold/mining stock watcher/trader/investor, you need to check out this unique and exclusive report found only on Kitco News.
