Jon Nadler Talks about Silver's Cloudy Lining
by Allen Alper. and Jason Clements
Jon Nadler, Senior Metals Analyst, Kitco Bullion Dealers, is bearish on silver prices.

Mickey Fulp Talks about the Critical Problem of “Critical” Metals
by Allen Alper. and Aaron Hoos
Markets go up and down. They are fundamentally propelled by supply and demand but markets are also propelled by investor exuberance over the latest fad. For a while it was gold.
