Daniela Cambone, host of Kitco News, welcomes Frank Holmes back to the program to chat on a day when the S&P 500 touches new record highs while gold moves lower. Frank says there is no reason for gold investors to worry. He explains that although gold bullion may be moving a bit lower, gold stocks are on a tear and are acting this way due to the strong stock market.

Looking back, a similar situation happened from 2001 to 2008 – the markets were strong and gold stocks outperformed bullion, Frank says.
