I get several Google news alerts each day on topics of interest to me, the precious metals markets is just one of them. I'm not sure why I do this, because unfortunately there is seldom ever any sensible or indeed valuable information written about the precious metals markets in the mainstream media.
Take this screenshot from a few days ago as an example - here are two (diametrically opposing) snippets covering the direction of the gold market - all good and dandy except they're from the very same media outlet and were issued on the same blasted day!
No wonder Joe the Plumber finds it so hard to understand why gold is a valid part of any responsible financial portfolio when this gibberish is being put out!
