Paul Nathan has passionately written in support of a free marketplace and real money for over forty years. Since 2008 Paul has been a contributing commentator for Kitco and writes a candid, real-time, Market Update for subscribing traders investors. In 2011 John Wiley & Sons published The New Gold Standard, Paul Nathan’s definitive work on the gold standard past and present. Paul called the end of the bull market for gold in 1980, the beginning of the 25 year tech revolution and bull market in 1982, went “All In” on gold and gold stocks in 2001, and alerted his readers to short the DOW at 14000 in July of 2007. 2008 and 2009, catastrophic years for most traders, were two of the best years in his trading career. He went all cash in 2011, calling the top of the bull market in gold, and recently in December of 2015, predicted the end of the downturn and the beginning of a new move higher in gold and commodities.
