Vanessa Collette of Cambridge House Live recently spoke with Frank Holmes at the Vancouver Natural Resources Conference to find out which global indicators he is paying attention to. Frank says he keeps an eye on the global manufacturing purchasing managers’ index (PMI) as a forward-looking measurement for how commodity stocks could perform in the following months. He says it’s also prudent to look backwards by focusing on industrial production, as this shows where money is actually being spent.

Watch the entire interview to see what Frank has to say about the seasonal trend for gold and why he sees value in junior oil stocks.
