3 Reasons to Go Bullish on Gold

The price of gold fell sharply Wednesday, marking its biggest one-day drop in three weeks, but some professional traders remain bullish on the precious metal.

From the floor of the New York Mercantile Exchange, trader Anthony Grisanti said he likes gold [GCCV1 1723.10 6.60 (+0.38%) ] for several reasons. To start, he pointed out that the price of gold fell after a single customer sold 15,000 contracts of gold as soon as the market opened Wednesday.

Gold Can Save Us From Disaster
A new gold standard is crucial. The disasters that the Federal Reserve and other central banks are inflicting on us with their funny-money policies are enormous and underappreciated.
