If you bought gold from some schmuck advertising on a syndicated radio show who was pretty sure gold would hit $2,000 an ounce by the end of the year, I have bad news. Gold is at $1,196 an ounce and dropping (or more accurately, the dollar is gaining strength as the world starts to believe Trump is for real)
One who advertises on Alex Jones is particularly obnoxious – the ad starts with saying you need gold for survival after civilization dies, but then switches to the greed approach of how you can make huge profits buying and selling gold. Pick one. They are opposite motivations.
By the way, don’t take advice from web sites written by anonymous people unless you are wanting to be fleeced. Or some guy buying time on radio on the weekends to recruit investors with promises of huge profits.
