New Silver IPO
I mentioned in my my last article that there are very few pure silver plays out there. What's even fewer it seems is new IPO's for junior miners especially those that are focused on silver. But just last month that happened with a new company called Zacatecas Silver TSX-V:ZAC and their focus is of course in the Zacatecas area of Mexico. The property the company owns totals 7826 hectares located within the Fresnillo Silver Belt, which has produced over 6.2 billion....continue.

Is Gold Still A Safe Haven?
Between Christmas and New Years it really looked good for the metals. I thought we would be in full tilt rally mode the first of the year. With all what's happening in the USA in regards to politics or shall I say the "uncertainty" of politics, you would really think gold would be sky high way over that $2,000 price that so many were predicting. But not so. Last week it after a slight decline the price got ....continue.

Profiting From The Green New Deal
Sure lots of talk and chatter about the "Green New Deals" lately. I guess it's those who within society want to do away with fossil fuels and power everything green.

Of course all these new alternatives still ....continue.

There's an old saying with stocks and the stock market and that saying is that "A rising tide lifts all boats."
