Ross Hansen is the founder of North America’s largest private mint. Therefore, he’s uniquely qualified to explain what has been going on in the precious metals markets. Besides the usual cries of manipulation, he sees large amounts of hot money leaving the sector for greener pastures such as the stock market. While larger investors are seeking bigger returns, the fundamentals for gold and silver have never looked better. Ross calls gold the world reserve currency, and while the realization has yet become widespread, it will be one day.
