I don’t know where to start or end this and I can’t imagine you finding the time to ever read this, but I had to just try and let you know how you are helping some of us immeasurably. I know by following you on a daily basis that you speak from your heart. You, sir, are the genuine article. You are so generous and deserving of every good thing that happens to you. My father was an elder in our Protestant church and tithed (10%) when we( he) had no extra money. He came from a divorced family, when it used to be a huge social stigma, and had to leave school in grade 10 to support his mother, which he did ’til her death. His father, who used to be well off-owning a mink and fox farm in the 1920′s lost it all in the crash and became the town drunk in the small town of Arnprior Ontario Canada. My father ended up losing his faith, no longer being able to believe some of what we think are very far fetched stories of a much more naive age. No disrespect intended. He was a fundamentalist-you believe it all or none. He lived the rest of his life as I hope to. Giving to charities and with the credo of doing onto others as you would have done to you, as you know very well Peter. I will be forever in your debt . I,too, was a legend in my own mind and crushed by the 2008 crash. I am starting to feel better now with a lot of the negative electricity leaving my body and getting my courage back. I will always be ashamed of myself for losing it when most needed and not heeding your advice in March, but I hung onto half of my portfolio and am thankful for that because I’m up 100% on those stocks.Take care Peter and thank you again.
~ Craig from Ontario, Canada
I just wanted to take this opportunity to sincerely thank Peter for providing valuable and knowledgeable information to small retail investors and all for free! I have been more successful following and listening to Peter than I have from many paid sources that I have subscribed to over the years.

I have followed you for a long time and take your advice above all others as you are honest and forthright with your opinions and advice and am still amazed you give it all away for free. Keep up the good work!

First of all I want to thank you for the Blog that you have through Agoracom. It is first class and I appreciate your commentary on life that goes into it. Of course, I read it for the commentary on the markets that have helped me earn more that I could have on my own. You are the number one spot on my favorites menu. Your perspective on Christianity is very good and a breath of fresh air for me.
We met at the Jersey Shores Conference, that you put on. I told you that I would give 10% of what I made with Northern Dynasty Minerals to charities. I have taken some profit off of the table and now it is my turn to say thank you. I have sent 10% of my profits to the Wendy Pilesky fund (through GoodNews) and have sent the other 90% to the FealGood Foundation. Those donations are a credit to your Christian witness. You have freely given of your financial expertise to the blog, I have made money off of that advice, and now it is my pleasure to give to worthy causes that you champion.
I attended my fortieth high school reunion last year. While there, I met up with a friend that I ran track with, whom I had not seen since high school. He paid me a compliment by calling me “one of the good guys”. I would like to pass that compliment on to you, Peter Grandich. You are ONE OF THE GOOD GUYS. You will be richly blessed for the goodness that you bestow on others that are in need.
One gives freely, yet grows all the richer; another withholds what he should give, and only suffers want. Proverbs 11:24
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year of 2010,

With the new year upon us I want to publicly acknowledge all that you have done for me. I put my son through college, a teaching credential and a masters degree. I paid down my mortgage, and now own my home free and clear. I am now comfortable and happily retired. I got here following your advice for 20 plus years, from your old newsletters to your current blog. I admire you for your faith, your charitable works for the less fortunate, and your ability to “walk the talk” I’m looking forward to many more years of your candid commentary on finance and life and the opportunity to respond to your charitable causes. God Bless you for all that you do.

I just wanted to say thanks. Thanks for everything that you do on this site and in your life in general, and not just what is financial. When the crash took place last year I was in true despair. I was totally focused on the economy and the markets and was not spending enough quality time with my young family. The time that I did spend I was miserable and depressed because of what was happening in the markets and the economy. I thank God that I had the sense to sell about 50% of my holdings prior to the crash but the 50% that I did have invested I took a blood bath on as many were juniors with at-one-time great stories.
About half way through the crash a good friend and now better, recommended that I take a look your and George’s site. I have never looked back since. You are one of only 3 people that I ever pay any attention to anymore and I read every word you write and speak on this blog religiously.
You have opened my mind and heart to so many things that I did not know existed, so many serious issues that I needed to be concerned with and also someone that I all but turned my back on a long time ago that I have since, because of you, begun the process to let Him back in my life. He of course is God.
You have also provided the best financial advise of anyone I have ever encountered and you do it out of the goodness of your heart. You are honest and clear in your direction and opinions. You have your readers’ best interest at heart and not your clients. You tell it like it is. I don’t know if most people on this site realize how truly rare this is.
I am a more humble person because of you, Peter. I realize there is much more to life than financial sucess because of you. I am a better investor because of you. I have many things to be thankfull for in my life and you and this site are honestly part of that. You make a difference in many people’s lives, Peter. You are truly a good man. Thank you.
- John, Vancouver, BC
Nowhere else have I found the mix of financial wisdom with the wisdom for daily life as you provide here. Thank you for this, Mr. Grandich. Your honesty, integrity, and humbleness is truly an inspiration.
May God bless you and your readers this Christmas season and may He be a source of comfort for those who find it a difficult time of year.

I wanted to thank you for everything you do.You may or may not realize what a blessing you are!! I have been reading your posts and comments for some months now and it amazes me still that the Good Lord continues to bless me in my life in ways that still astonish me.Finding your blog has really helped me …financially and more importantly in a spiritual way. I won’t bore you with details,but I YOU OWE in a big way!!
On a lighter note: you must remember like I do that no matter how bad life gets (Jets are bad)…..things and others are suffering more!! So be greatfull for what you have…….you could be a life long Browns fan like me!!!! LOL , but crying inside!
Have a great Thanksgiving!!

I must throw a comment in. I am 56 years old and two and a half years ago I lost my job. I had 29 years with the company and was 1 year short of a reduced pension. I recieved a $50k severence and lost my job, pension and healthcare. I had been recieving Peter’s newsletter for a couple of years, did a lot of studying and a little investing when I was still employed. I was panicked — I never expected what happened. I never invested in everything Peter recommended, but some and DD’ed everything to death. What I did do was follow Peter’s market calls and with a few of his picks and several of mine I started trading seriously.Two and a half years ago ther was 50 grand in the trading account. Right now, there is 90 grand in the account and $215k taken off the table. I never made over $48k in a year of working in my life. I have made $255k in profit over 2.5 years. I have a son in university and if it wasn’t for using Peter’s market calls and selected picks, I’d be on welfare right now. My son is in 4th year and has no student loans. We’re still living in the little old house and I’m still driving the old truck but am no longer terrified. And, although I have no crystal ball, I am positioned and believe I will trade $150k off the table between now and the end of 2010 . Thank you Peter, not only for sharing the knowledge, but for the confidence I now have.

Saturday I had the privilege of meeting Peter Grandich at the Montreal Investment Show and attending one of his speeches. Afterwards, he invited those who wished to talk with him to the cafeteria where we sat around a table and asked questions, discussed and listened. Peter is a kind man – he is friendly, gentle, sympathetic and gracious. Please continue being who you are!!

Seriously, the Jersey Shore Conference was a super presentation. Thank you for putting it on. My wife, Leah, was asking if there would be another conference next year?! She loved it and would like to come back to New Jersey.
The knowledge that was represented by each of the speakers was truly outstanding. These men are the brightest minds in the Au/Ag/resource sector/economy in the country. What a pleasure to have been able to absorbs just a few of their thoughts. It was a great conference and I loved every second of it. The people that were unable to attend missed out. Thanks!
- Larry, the Louisiana guy
Great call a few weeks back on shorting oil above 68. I have been trading in and out since then. Crazy volatility…. 6% moves in both directions in 2 days. Keep up the great work. This blog has been more helpful to me than you can imagine. Thanks again. God Bless.

Fast forward to the 60 minute mark for this great interview of approx. 35 minutes. Even though it is past midnight I had to listen to the interview. My sincere thanks to you, Peter. In the last few months you have changed my investment strategy and I feel an inner peace which I had not experienced before entering this stock market world. I hope to meet you one day. Many thanks !!
- Robert C.
I have been a silent follower of you for several years and I want to say thanks for your efforts. I have implemented many of the trades you have recommended which have been successful. I realize that this is trading and nobody knows anything for sure and there is risk in every transaction. You seem to have a tremendous ability to look at a market, stock or commodity with great insight and come to a conclusion about its future both short term and long. The most recent call you made that I followed was the short term strength in the dollar. I was long a couple gold contracts and decided to take my profits and exit that trade prior to the dollar’s bounce a few days ago.
I also appreciate your strong spirituality. I feel a sense of relief when I read your blogs that they are fair and honest. Your recommendations are not based on the hopes of personal gains by the actions of your readers. This is refreshing when so many folks are only looking out for themselves. Please keep up the good work.
I truly mean everything I said and if you decide not to answer my next question that is fine, but I am wondering what you think about the Natural Gas market. I am thinking that a bottom is forming and we could soon see a nice bounce.. If you choose I would appreciate your thoughts.

Peter Grandich Portfolio – Hard to Match
I have followed Peter Grandich for quite some time.
His expertise traditionally has been in the junior resource sector, although recently has been venturing out into traditional markets with his model portfolio. Neither a perma-bull or perma-bear, Peter calls ‘em as he sees ‘em; and lately, he’s been calling them pretty good.
Check out the results of his current model portfolio here.

“Looking Back to Look Forward” is one of your best. Over time, I have read literally hundreds of books, papers, and blogs to explaining the psychology of the small investor, struggling to profit in the rise and fall of the markets, and rarely doing so. You have captured the essence of the subject and provided answers in a few thoughtful, candid and well chosen paragraphs. This is a keeper, and something that I recommend should be read again from time to time to test our perception of reality in our investment decisions.
- Mike, California
I am just a lowly individual investor/speculator here in Atlanta, GA, who has grown to look forward to your blogs more than any other newsletter I get in my in-box every day. I met you briefly at the NO conference several years ago (2006), and ever since have benefited from your wisdom and generosity. Thank you for sharing with us- I, for one, really appreciate who you are and what you do.”
- Mike, Atlanta, USA
I thought you were the best speaker here in Phoenix! I really appreciated your Christian witness and what God has done in your life. I was very interested in your being a “recovering materialist” as well. Do you have specific rules you have set up for yourself?? I also loved the story one of the attenders told you about his grandfather that owned a bank and went broke to make sure he paid back all his depositors.
I came out of a severe mid-life crisis depression also last July – but for me the timing was perfect, because I promised God I would not whine about anything, if He would just give me my joy back. So when we lost thousands of dollars in Sept/Oct- well that is okay because I still have joy and peace! I accepted Christ at 18 years of age, but just “forgot” to be grateful. Anyway, your transparency was a blessing and your boldness to share your Savior also.
Thanks, Renee in Phoenix, USA
PS My husband is very interested in setting up a bank acct now in Canada!!
I can’t thank you enough for providing these occasional statements in response to the market movements. You are doing this completely gratis, out of the goodness of your heart, and I am just one individual out of the huge and appreciative throng that follow you. I am a small Canadian investor, do not subscribe to your investment letter, but follow avidly all your pronouncements. How very kind and generous of you to share your time and insights with the investment community. Just wish I had read what you were saying about energy.”
Gratefully yours, N.A., Canada
I enjoyed reading your recent publication ‘The Year Americans Will Begin to Pay the Piper’. It was very informative and well written.
I invested in mutual funds and made tons of money in the 90s just like everyone else only to lose most of it after 2000. I also had debts that kept me from purchasing a house over the last five years and I am still living in an apartment. I look at my friends who stayed invested in the market, purchased new homes and shiny new cars. This has been a hard pill to swallow for me. I just didn’t get in at the right time. However, I can’t help but think that this was all a blessing for me. Otherwise I would be numbed by the comforts and I would not be aware of this impending disaster ahead. This hardship of mine has only forced me to study and read everything that I can about finances, markets, and economies.
Your article was great because it summed everything up in a nutshell. It was another perspective that validated what I have been studying over the past year. Currently, I belong to Elliott Wave International and they have been saying the exact same thing as you.
My friends and family think that I am a negative dooms-day person because of all these counter-culture ideas of crashes that I have. It tends to be discouraging when you don’t have many people to talk about this with. So it is refreshing to hear it from someone else too. Thank you for the great article.”
- Gene, Providence, RI
I’ve been educating myself on the precious metals, silver and gold, particularly silver, over the past year, as it seemed a good thing to do in my spare time while deployed here in Iraq. I appreciate your articles and opinions, and thank you, as well as others, for doing much of the work that you do, so that those of us less educated may make more intelligent decisions with our financial planning (and scheming).”

I have been a GATA member since Sept. 5, 1999 & since first reading your data at MIDAS & and Kitco, I have included you in my group of Folks who I consider on the level of E. F. Hutton of old: When You talk, I listen… Cheers!”

Looks like Grandich does his best, and is not afraid to tell it like it is.”

A long time ago I disagreed with your PM stock recs. However congrats, your gold predictions have been better than anyone else’s. I know, I am retired and have the time to read them all. I also agree with your assessment of this statement by China.”

Your appearance on ROBTV was very informative.”
- Stuart, Toronto, Canada
Thank you for sharing your expertise with us small investors over the years. Even when the outlook for gold seemed to be fading, you always managed to guide us in the right direction and dispel some of the rumours and media spin. Hopefully, the price of gold will reach its true high in the near future.”
- Michael, Ontario, Canada
Saw you on Rob-TV. Very forthright…good comments on resources.”
- Gus, Ontario, Canada
Your ROBTV appearance was quite honestly the most professional interview that I have ever seen on that show. The extent of your knowledge on the golds alone including the vast junior universe showed tremendous breadth, but to be as conversant on the other commodity-based companies with seamless transition is something you’d expect from a handful of top tier experts. I’ve heard all the writers at more shows than I can remember, and they’ve been singing the same song for over 20 years. Your candor and honesty are distinctive in addition to a higher standard of analytics and market savvy.”
I attended the Investors Conference in Calgary last weekend with my husband. At the conference we attended your workshop on Saturday afternoon. I have to tell you how impressed I was with your opening statements regarding your faith and love for Christ. Yes, I am a born again believer so I was right on the same page with you as you spoke about your love for Him. These opening words you spoke told me very clearly that your love for your Jesus was the most important thing in your life. All the other information you gave was secondary, albeit very important. I have a great respect for you and I appreciate your honesty and willingness to share your insights on the precious metals markets. Thank you for your insight and sharing of great information regarding investing. I want to also thank you for your openness about your love and faith in Jesus, it is so refreshing in a world that doesn’t share about our personal faith in our Lord and Savior.”
Thank you so much, well said. A calming effect and true sense has once again been restored. Also to reaffirm that Gold has some very powerful enemies. Namely the Central Bankers. No doubt we are heading in the same direction as the 70′s. There is no way to avoid it at this point. I think all this spin is from the enemy in disguise one way or another.”

Excellent Market Call appearance on ROBTV”
- Eileen, British Columbia, Canada
First of all, many regards from Germany. Very concise article you wrote on kitco.com on April 13th. We would love to use the article on your website, and translate into German.”
- Raphael, Germany
I found your article to be highly intelligent and insightful, especially as I’m down about 200K in my PM shares. The action since yesterday is truly frightening, so you’ve helped me a lot. Many more experienced traders and investors than I have been selling, while I’ve just sold a few where I had a profit. I pray you’re correct in thinking gold will move up to 450 by Summer, or better yet, this Friday (Well, I’ll take 410 this week happily).”
- Sheryl, So. Hampton, NY
Thank you for the sensible advice and counsel this morning — and for your encouragement at a time when it would be easy to bite nails and water seeds of doubt. Your steadfast adherence to economic truth at a time when the PTB would like to shake people out of the only currency of value that is left God’s planet is valued.”
Steve, New York, NY
Peter is great!”
- Lucie, Ontario, Canada
Excellent commentary today, 4/13/2004. The excess optimism is surely being WASHED out this week. I concur with you that the gold/silver bull market is young. I was a rookie retail stockbroker in 1979 and I vividly remember the euphoria at that time. No one would buy anything BUT metal stocks. Hot tips were happening all day everyday. We are years away from that at this moment. The deflation crowd will be getting cocky today. I understand their thinking, but I still see some sort of stagflation coming.”
Peter, you are one of the Best so am looking forward to your e-mails. Thanks.”
- Deirdre, Quebec, Canada
I saw Peter on RobTV last week and found him to be one of the best!”

Saw you at the Toronto show. Appreciate your honest comments.”

It’s financially rewarding watching you.”

Peter I find you an excellent speaker to all levels: you don’t confuse the common investor and yet you keep the interest of the experienced.”

Your opinion about investments and futures was excellent, particularly gold and base metal junior stocks. Thank you.”
- Smita, Ontario, Canada
I appreciate your integrity.”
- Randy, Manitoba, Canada
Over a number of months reading commentaries on the Kitco site, one begins to notice that certain contributors make sense to your way of thinking — Mr. Grandich is such a one.”
- Bruce, Texas, USA
Just a vote of confidence for you and a thank you for your insight. While I continue to sell a little early, you’ve made investing a lot more fun and expanded my knowledge in a lot of areas. I’d charge people though for your report, keeps the crazies away. Josef Schacter charges and I am glad to pay for his report.”
- Tony, Ottawa, Canada
I receive your letter alerts and was sorry to read of the nasty responses you have received from those who have either lost or never had a moral compass. Just wanted to write a note and express my personal gratitude for your letter. I find it very helpful. Thanks for deciding to continue.”
- James, California, USA
As a part of the silent majority I want to thank you for your FREE service. I would gladly pay for and encourage you to charge at least a nominal fee.
My two cents: I must say if I were you I would not publish a phone number. Unfortunately many among us are not yet enlightened. Also, I think you may have made some people dependent on you by graciously responding to their constant requests for almost daily updates, rather than letting your advice on trends stand. Investing is a risk and all of us must make and be responsible for our own decisions.
Personally, I evaluate probabilities and have a success rate of over 85% doing so. In 9 months I have taken a $40k initial investment into over $250k. Have I had losses? Sure. Has my timing been wrong at times? Of course. Do I blame anyone, even myself ? NO BECAUSE I DON’T EXPECT TO BE RIGHT EVERY TIME NOR DO I BET THE FARM ON ONE OR TWO INVESTMENTS.
Anyone who thinks you or anyone else has a crystal ball is a buffoon. I listen to you and what several other PAID services have to say and THEN I MAKE UP MY OWN MIND. You, me and my paid advisors are not correct all of the time, nor DO I EXPECT ANY OF US TO BE.
You can be a nice guy without exposing your chin LOL. As was repeated during the movie “Million Dollar Baby” the first rule is to protect yourself.
I receive your letter alerts and was sorry to read of the nasty responses you have received from those who have either lost or never had a moral compass. Just wanted to write a note and express my personal gratitude for your letter. I find it very helpful. Thanks for deciding to continue.”
- Tom, CT, USA
Peter, just finished reading your latest article ‘Wall of worry’ and will be printing it off for reviewing in the future.
Look forward to seeing and hearing you speak at the Calgary investment show in April, I will make a point of shaking your hand as you and John Embry have added greatly to my family’s financial well being, thank you!
- Joe, Alberta, Canada
I have been following your work for 2 1/2 years now. I appreciate your comments and diligence in light of a few idiots, who just don’t get it.
Hold your head up, Peter, and keep doing what you are doing. Your publications have great value for all of us. I anxiously await your comments and e-mails as a great support mechanism in these exciting commodity markets.
Thanks for your honesty and integrity and keep keepin on!”
- Kim, Alberta, Canada
One of the most humble and knowledgeable letters I have read. Thank you.”
- Scott, Utah, USA
Your March 14th article on Gold Eagle is without doubt the best ‘Big Picture’ view of what is going on in our world today that I have seen to date. It is clear, concise, easily read and easily understood. I can’t thank you enough for your evident willingness to share you wisdom and knowledge with me. I have sent your article to many friends urging them to read it slowly and carefully and give much thought to it.”
Gratefully, Marshall, AK, USA
Your newsletters are great and I for one (and am sure many more people barring those obnoxious idiots!) am grateful for your time and effort. Hell to those who do not appreciate you.
Just look at it this way….. I teach at a University. There will always be some under-achievers who ‘blame’ the professor for their own failures. Do I stop teaching altogether just because a few, a handful of students, complaint? I also get praises from a large number of my students too. This majority is more than enough to make up the difference, to provide the incentive, and the reason to continue.
I hope I will continue to see your newsletter regularly. In fact, I would like to see them more often than they are appearing at the >moment. Thank you so much. With great regards and appreciation.”
- CK, Hong Kong, Special Administrative Region
May I add my thanks also to the many you have received for your most valuable service. We who follow your publications now, and for years past, appreciate the help you provide in navigating the often choppy waters of metals investing. Ignore the noise of nay-sayers, for it matters little! The vast majority of us thank you, and wish you well.”
- John, Ohio, USA
Great heaps of credit to you for your prescient advice about overbought gold. I felt uneasy about the state of AU.price & your advice made me rethink. I sold BGO yesterday & sold ARQ last week @1.19. I will be on the bid for ARQ again under a dollar C. I would also like to thank you for presentation on the Saturday before Gold Show. I commend you on your ability to speak without notes and without Ums & Ers. Your credibility is enhanced by your humility when you speak of your past endeavors.”
- Ron, Canada
There are always going to be short sighted slow witted haters who can’t think for themselves and yet have so much blame to blast around. It’s shocking and sad that anyone should call your home to leave hateful and rude comments. What these morons are missing is that your opinion is one of many and in that context a VERY necessary component of ‘the market’.
Please don’t consider letting some idiot curtail any opinion you may want to express. I have always enjoyed your erudite analyses and appreciate that you can’t be right 100% of the time, no one (including myself) ever is. What is important is that you voice your opinion honestly and with a great wealth of experience. When I read your commentaries I appreciate them for what they are and it helps me MAKE UP MY OWN MIND.
Keep up the great work that you do. You are very much appreciated by a great many people. Tell the haters to get a life.”
- W, British Columbia, Canada
I have been reading your commentaries and alerts for a few years now, and NO, I don’t always like what I read, but sometimes none of us can handle the truth. I appreciate your honesty. You are a Warrior and a really GREAT one. When you “stand out” in your field, you have to be ready to take the heat. I am sorry so many go to extremes when you present the “truth” to them. It’s no different when one is approached with the TRUTH spiritually, many rebel violently. Keep up the good work. I appreciate and thank you.”
Here’s a ‘vote of confidence’ to counter your recent ‘hate mail’. We rarely say thank you, but are quick to pen insults, complaints and the like.
I thank you for your insights and opinions. You are one of a handful of market commentators I put my faith into – but I’m wise enough to listen to others and come to my own conclusions. That way, when I make a trade, it was by my informed choice. I take responsibility for my actions – hey what a novel thought/concept that is! Too bad more people don’t think and take responsibility for themselves.
Glad the Calgary trip helped restore your faith. I hope we here in Canada act more responsibly/civilized that some of your subscribers. And even though my Canucks missed the playoffs, it’s not the end of the world and we haven’t descended into Hell!”
- Grant, British Columbia, Canada
I use your commentary and your analysis to help keep me grounded. Your efforts are A1. I follow your stock recommendations and they have so far been good to me. If you do charge for your service in the future then I’ll happily pay for it as I do with Doug Casey. I like people who make me think.
I am an Agnostic but I can still see/read a good man when I see/read one.”
- John, Australia
Thank you, Peter. I have never met a man like you who tries so hard to be honest and sincere no matter what the others might think God Bless!”
- Martin, Canada
I know you don’t need cheerleaders, but I want to thank you for your commentaries on Kitco. Whether I agree with your analysis or not, I find them thought-provoking, and you frequently challenge me to consider a slightly different perspective or something I haven’t considered at all. As a father of 2, making wise investments is a necessity. You are an important influence on my investment decisions. Thank you for your valuable work.”
- Steven, PA, USA
I love Peter’s insights and investment advice- honest and direct. He should get his own program on ROBTV!!”
- Craig, Alberta, Canada
Peter… NEVER let the idiots out there bother you. You have provided outstanding help to me and literally thousands of others!”
- Michael, Canada
Thank you so much for your time, consideration and insight. I became involved in the markets through a slight sense of desperation (not a solid basis, I know) but one I took under total understanding I am responsible 100% for my actions and use the “educated gambling” approach. I base all my investment decisions on relentless research, and hopefully gain a touch of confidence through confirmation through your insight. Believe me when I say without your tireless efforts, experience, and willingness to share I am no longer in that state of desperation concerning my involvement in the markets. Thank you for your appearance at the Calgary show…I took in as much as I possibly could over two days and only wish I had another 5 days to soak up the kind of information being offered by you and others. I trust you had opportunity to enjoy some down time in and around this beautiful area of the world. God speed for your hoofed and cloven ones, but remember, the road to the Stanley cup will have to pass through Calgary.
Again, Thanks for your dedication and integrity, you helped make my foray into the investment world exciting and a little more comforting.”

Thanks for distributing your gold alert last week – I was getting nervous already, but your call tipped me over the edge, and I blew everything out Thursday and Friday. This is the first time I have had no gold position in over three years (even ARQ – I’ll buy it back cheaper, hopefully)!
I subscribe to a lot of metals letters, but your emails are the ones that always get my attention immediately.”

Your first warning, I failed to respond to. Your last warning, I accepted. You saved me >$120,000 Thank You!
I know you’ve received some bad emails, so even though I sent an affirmation a week or so ago, I’m doing it again. Your crystal ball of knowledge, analysis, and experience has come through again and this time helped me save tens of thousands of dollars over the last couple of days. Having seen your accuracy first hand, I partially liquidated my commodity holdings in great part because of your proclamation and am now patiently waiting for gold, etc. to shake out a bit before wading back in. Your comments are always sincerely appreciated and studied.”

I’ve got to say, whether you’ve been right or wrong, and for the most part, you’ve been spot on, it’s refreshing to read your most frank and candid editorials. We all know that batting 1000% in this business is impossible. However, the candor and humbleness with which you write, is greatly respected and appreciated, at least in our eyes.
Keep up the great work!!!”
Knowledge is power and Peter Grandich has been imparting clear and perceptive knowledge and thus empowering investors for 22 years. His latest Special Alert Commentary is as perceptive and insightful as ever.
In it you will read how the recent sharp sell off presents investors with another opportunity and emphasises the importance of not being preoccupied about short term movements in markets. Instead focus on the big picture – macroeconomic and geopolitical trends.
Grandich was labeled the “Wall Street Whiz Kid” in the early 1980′s and gained national notoriety by being among the very few who not only forecasted the 1987 stock market crash just weeks before it happened, but on the very next day he predicted that within a year the market would reach a new all-time high – which it did. Proving his 1987 forecast was no fluke, Mr. Grandich said in January 2000 that the year 2000 will go down as the year the great mega bull market of the 80s and 90s came to an end.
Peter Grandich is a class act.
He has consistently called the financial markets right for a number of years and especially the gold market. This is why he is quoted on a daily basis in CBS MarketWatch’s daily article on gold and silver’s performance. He has also featured in most of the financial press including in the Wall Street Journal, Barron’s, The Daily Telegraph, Yahoo Finance and is a regular contributor to Canada’s most watched financial TV station, Report on Business (ROB TV).
Unlike many respected financial commentators, he is informed enough to realize the distinction between base metals and commodities in general and gold and silver bullion.
Analysts with a modicum of intelligence realise that there is a difference between pork bellies or lead and gold bullion.
Yet some financial analysts, media commentators and even respected economists continuously fail to point out the important distinction.
Lead is lead. Pork bellies are pork bellies. Gold bullion was the basis of our monetary system since man began using money and remains an important part of the global monetary system and economy with the majority of central banks in the world still maintaining vast reserves of gold bullion in order to provide full faith in our modern fiat paper money monetary system.
Grandich understands this and enunciates it clearly. Unfortunately many who should know better are guilty of continually lumping gold in with the entire commodity complex and failing to make the important distinction. Some by design, others through ignorance of the fact that gold is money or a universal currency which remains a significant threat to the US dollar’s continuing status as the global reserve currency.
He realises that commodities in general could be peaking now and continue to sell off. Especially should the slowdown in the US housing market affect the US economy and subsequently Asian economies and the global economy. This would obviously affect demand for commodities which are dependent on economic growth in order to sustain demand. Gold is not dependent on continuing growth in the global economy and is thus far more defensive and has greater prospects than base metals and soft commodities.
Grandich points out that it is important to always remember that we remain in a secular multi-year gold bull market and that a four digit price target remains (over $1000 per ounce).
