Frank Holmes, Jim Payne and Michael Oliver return as guests on the next radio program.
What has been driving the price of gold higher thus far into 2016? More importantly, is this move long lasting or simply a bear market rally? Frank provides his views on that question from a fundamental analysis and Michael updates us on his views which so far suggest we are into a major move upward in gold.
No matter what your views on gold, not putting all your eggs in one basket is always wise advice. Frank manages a diverse group of mutual funds so we will ask him to give us his larger view on the economy and global markets and how investors might use a group of funds to provide diversification.
Jim Payne of dynaCERT updates us on his company's progress in marketing its patented technology to increase fuel efficiency and reduce carbon emissions by 30% to 40% for diesel engines and prospects for dramatic sales growth and profits.

Michael Oliver entered the financial services industry in 1975 on the Futures side, joining E.F. Hutton's International Commodity Division, NYC. He studied under David Johnson, head of Hutton's Commodity Division and Chairman of the COMEX.
In the 1980s Oliver began to develop his own momentum-based method of technical analysis. In 1987, Oliver, along with his futures client accounts (Oliver had trading POA) technically anticipated and captured the Crash. Oliver began to realize that his emergent momentum-structural-based tools should be further developed into a full analytic methodology.
In 1992, he was asked by the Financial VP and head of Wachovia Bank's Trust Department to provide soft dollar research to Wachovia. Within a year Oliver shifted from brokerage to full-time technical research. MSA has provided its proprietary technical research services to financial and asset management clients continually since 1992. Oliver is the author of The New Libertarianism: Anarcho-Capitalism.
