Another Volatile Week in Gold and Silver: “Crazier Days to Come” – Weekly Wrap Up

With extreme volatility in the markets, inflation that doesn’t look transitory, and a disincentivized labor force, the arguments for owning gold and silver are stronger than ever. This week, guest host Kam Hesari sits down with Brien Lundin of to break down all the gold and silver news you need to get through the rocky times.

In this edition of The Weekly Wrap-Up, you’ll hear:

  • What’s driving the extreme market volatility
  • Why you need gold in your portfolio—and how much you should have
  • Plus: Will strong silver demand continue?

“In short term, the boom/bust cycles as it were—or rather, the short-term volatility—is due largely to the markets trying to interpret every last utterance from the Fed, and their messaging, and what they’re likely to do in the future. So that’s really driving all the markets. And it is the primary driver for all the markets. Longer term there are multi-year, even decadal, boom/bust cycles that have been driven by the Fed and all central banks since 1971, when the Fed severed the last ties between the dollar and gold, when Nixon closed the gold window.”
