It’s surprising how it’s gone up when gold hasn’t really participated so probably silver is the interesting thing to watch .Eric stops by to talk about it and you won’t want to miss the lively discussion on: The ongoing debt crisis in the US. The Fed’s prediction on Interest rate hikes.

Let’s have that rate increase. Let’s get it over with, here. Because, typically, I don’t think the Fed really could possibly read things as bullish as they might have started the year off thinking. Because it’s really not quite coming together. Housing’s weak, auto’s week, retail sales are nothing special, you’ve got inflation affecting lots of areas… We have lots of reason for the Fed to be expressing concern. So, fine… Let’s bring it on, let’s see what happens. And I’m pretty certain that gold and silver will survive yet another rate increase.
