Gold Is Not a Bad Place to Be

With continuing volatility across equity markets, Frank Holmes tells Business News Network (BNN) why investing in gold is not a bad place to be right now. Frank comments that the normal seasonal pattern for the precious metal has historically shown a rise from now until the Chinese New Year, and that odds favor the precious metal trading even higher due to a combination of emerging market concerns and falling oil prices.

Tune in to the full interview to hear Frank’s thoughts on gold mining stocks as well as why he has his eye on a few real estate names.
