I've been involved with precious metals mining since the early 1980's, including a brief stint in gold and silver marketing. I've known Jeff since those days and I have always respected both his in-depth knowledge of all aspects of the metal and the gold sector, but his ability to match with some big picture thinking.

As a former CEO of a major mining company, I know how difficult it is to apply standard macro-industrial economic theories for predicting (guessing?) the price of gold. I also recognize the inherent difficulties of using conventional technical analysis or less conventional wave or cyclical analysis to predict prices.

Jeff's long experience in the game has served him well and has given him some rare insights about what works, and the realistic limits to any predictive tool. This is why I have continued to follow his work for over 20 years.
