I have more than 7 years experience investing in commodities and hard assets such as gold and silver miners, exploration companies, oil and gas producers, MLPs, and various other sectors.
As I'm a long-term investor, I'll highlight some stockpicks which will have a 5-7 year investment horizon. As I strongly believe a portfolio should consist of a mixture of dividend-paying stocks and growth stocks, my articles will reflect my thoughts on this mixture.

Involved for decades in the precious metals trading sector. Still enjoy the consideration and thought processes to keep me sharp...I thrive on learning and consider SA to be a superb resource for quality information. The differing perspectives and methodologies are intriguing and on occasion provide an insight I haven't previously utilized.
Best wishes to all,
Physician, sailor, writer - retired at 54. Clinical Surgeon and former board member and president of a large multi specialty group. Discovered an aptitude for the financial aspects of managing a successful business. Seeks to identify macro trends impacting business sectors or economies before they are generally acknowledged. Investment style focused on good businesses out of favor with the market. Applying option strategies to maximize returns and minimize risk.
Over past 40 years: College and University courses. Also studied Meditation, yoga, studied health and self-improvement and seeking enlightenment and business and life success and wealth through thousands of books and dozens of gurus.
I was licensed in Mutual funds and Life Insurance in 1985 and have 20 years work experience in accounting and 10 years experience in auto and vehicle insurance and 10 years of telephone sales and service.
I started intensive trading back around 2,000 for a few years than switched to Mutual Funds until February 2013 then sold all my funds and for three years have been doing intensive analysis of what moves Gold and Silver and generate profits for me, which involved 1,000+ hours studying over 1,000+ articles about the market and precious metals and became aware of what really moves precious metals and what doesn't.. The bottom line is there is way too much false analysis and articles and so called Gurus claiming to know what will happen to the price of precious metals and what moves them. Beware of almost all analysts and articles about precious metals are they selling something or are a perma bear or bull. I'm here to profit in precious metals. Most news, manipulations or conspiracy theories don't move Gold consistently in the same direction, so best to minimize focus on them. Elliott Wave I have found it to be the only trustable and profitable method to trade precious metals. There are also a hand full of the best Technical Indicators that are beneficial to use along with Elliott Wave including Ichimoku Cloud, TOS TTM Indicators, MACD, Parabolic SAR, Momentum, SMI ... Summary: I wouldn't trade Gold of Silver without Elliott Wave. -----------------------------
Why Quantum Profit? In physics, a quantum (plural: quanta) is the minimum amount of any physical entity involved in an interaction. "Quantum leap" - noun - : a sudden large change, development, or improvement. Quantum Profit, means mega profits in less time with less effort, while following Elliott Wave advanced analysis, the Law of Attraction, being in the Flow, receiving and giving Divine Guidance and Blessings, and the Law of Allowing, along with Receiving and Appreciation.
Also because I am deeply involved in several QUANTUM activities. Quantum Entrainment (QE) - Where you makes an intention and with a simple and fast triangulation process one can be in a deep state of 'pure awareness', theta brainwaves, where you are in contact with the Zero Point Field of infinite potential. The source of all that is. Miracles often do happen often with that process. It was developed by Dr. Frank Kinslow I have been utilizing this process for 5 years. Dr. Kinslow's book are bestsellers in multiple languages and sold out seminars in US and Europe. I completed his Florida seminar and read and practiced all of his books.
Do You QuantumThink By Dianne Collins is an amazing book that empowers one to "Live in the Zone" I have studied the program many times. The book gently releases resistance and evolves your thinking and awareness from the industrial age 300 years ago into the 21st Century Quantum Age of Divine Awareness and Connection.
I have also practiced and taught another leading edge process for 7 years. Sahaja Yoga - It is the most advanced and beneficial meditation and enlightenment process in history. Every class is free and includes a Kundalini Awakening 30 minute process given for free to all students. You discover your imbalances and learn how to balance and heal all aspects of your life as you practice 'Thoughtless Awareness' meditation, which easily stops all thoughts and drops your brainwaves from regular beta waves to the 'whole brain' deep awareness of Theta brainwaves where you connect with and fill your self with: Divine energy, Kundalini, Energy, Chi, Prana, Life Force, Cool Breeze of the Holy Spirit, and receive balancing and healing in all aspects of your life, including health, inner peace and happiness and resolve financial difficulties. Here is a Sahaja Yoga website that offers free Kundalini Awakening (Enlightenment), Sahaja Yoga is always free in over 100 countries in many languages. See the web site at freemeditation.com It balances all areas of your life including finances.
Elliott Wave Analysis is considered a leading edge financial analysis for investment forecasting. It is more accurate, with greater profits being made in a shorter period of time.
Many Prosperous returns to all. Live long and Prosper in Peace, Joy, Love.

I am a metals analyst at FastMarkets (UK independent research boutique) in London. Previously, I worked as a precious metals analyst at INTL FC Stone (US brokerage firm) in London under the direction of senior commodity analyst Edward Meir, while I provided some investment consulting services in Paris. In addition to my strong interest in understanding the metals complex from a microeconomic and macroeconomic perspective, I spend a good deal of my spare time in managing my portfolio. I started a discretionary global macro portfolio in 2010 after elaborating my own investment philosophy, largely influenced by George Soros and Karl R. Popper. At present, I continue to work on my philosophical framework in order to improve my decision-making process under uncertainty. I was born in Paris, France. I graduated from University of Assas with a MSc in finance (2011), I also earned a MSc Research in economics from University of Sorbonne (2012), where I published a research thesis intituled “Is gold a speculative bubble?” under the direction of Natixis Chief Economist Patrick Artus, and I finally received a MSc in management from ESSEC Business School (2014). I launched a blog in 2013, Mikz Economics, in which I share some of my research as well as trade ideas.

I am a 43 year veteran of Wall Street. My first 26 years were spent on the buy-side as an institutional money manager. I have spent the last 13 years as a sell-side strategist. I am a life long contrarian who finds it easy to take positions quite apart from the crowd. I am most comfortable with my forecasts when my macro and technical analysis are in sync and when my views are at odds with the consensus. I've always been fascinated by the behavioral aspects of investing. Years of observing investor behavior has led me to the conclusion that investor psychology may be the most powerful emotional force in the universe, more powerful than love or hate. It causes otherwise rational beings to make some very irrational decisions. I think every investor should read Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds by Charles MacKay.
Joseph has been an analyst, investor, and student of economic theory; money and banking; and statistical methods for evaluating and implementing risk/reward trading algorithms since 1972. Joseph is also an occasional contributor to financial publications and his essays are frequently cited by other financial websites and publications.
Since the end of the Great Recession, Joseph came to recognize that traditional methodologies for forecasting economic growth and investment asset pricing are no longer of value, and a broader understanding of the post Glass Steagall, financially engineered world that has driven markets and economies since the turn of the century is required today.
He has a good grasp of Shadow Banking, High Frequency Trading, and Dark Pools, and their impact on today’s markets. He has also spent considerable time understanding the new global paradigm of central bank involvement in experimental policy designed to better control economies.
Joseph doesn’t subscribe to a specific school of theory on economics. Rather, his thinking is based on a combination of the Classical School, the Austrian School, and the Keynesian School. He even sees the writings of Karl Marx as particularly instructive.
Joseph is particularly fond of the following quote from Albert Einstein and sees his own work as driven by that same passionate curiosity that Einstein refers to:
“I have no special talents. I am only passionately curious.”
Coming in a close second in terms of favorite quotes that express his views, Joseph embraces Lord Acton’s views expressed here:
“The danger is not that a particular class is unfit to govern.
Every class is unfit to govern."
