Alex Letourneau of Kitco News welcomes Frank Holmes for this week’s episode of Gold Game Film.  Last week investors saw negative movements in the global equity market, and in turn witnessed gold react positively.

Frank discusses the volatility, specifically noting the massive swing in 10-year government bonds as well as silver stocks. Did you know that for every 1-percent move in bullion, historically we’ve seen a 3-percent move in gold stocks and 4-percent move in silver stocks?

Catch the entire episode to see what opportunities Frank sees for the precious metal, and why he says the Love Trade is in full force right now in India.
