FTX and the Fallout: how crypto investors can pivot and still find crypto-like gains

Gold and silver - don't fear the wall of worry

(Kitco commentary) - Investors today seem to love jumping on whatever asset's price is soaring. Tesla is going vertical? Buy Tesla. Gold is going vertical? Buy gold stocks. Already overvalued? No problem-it's hot!

Square root "recovery" bearish for economy, bullish for gold
