US Stock Market, Precious Metals And The Macro Backdrop
The real story of this chart, showing the rest of the sorry post-bubble history from the 2011 chart, is an extended bear market, sharp upturn in 2016 and what seems like a forever consolidation of that upturn. I can assure you it will not be forever.
