Market Trends and Gold Movers

Mining Journal chief editor Richard Roberts welcomes Frank Holmes to a new weekly audio feature, exclusive to Mining Journal Americas, called Americas Mining Agenda. Frank starts the discussion by recapping some of his recent travels, including a trip to Argentina where he met with President Mauricio Macri. He reiterates that government policy is a precursor to change, not only in the U.S., but across the global marketplace. 

Richard asks Frank his thoughts on the commodities market and what could be next for gold. Frank explains that purchasing managers’ index (PMI) data has turned positive across the board, and that this is one indicator that keeps him bullish on commodities as well as the yellow metal. Tune in to the podcast below for the full conversation!
