I think the FED is doing an amazing job. They are inflating the money supply by huge amounts and keeping the inflation mostly in real estate and stocks. What does leak out into general goods and services can easily be manipulated away with their ever changing CPI metric.
In addition, the one sector that should be going up in leaps and bounds from the introduction of newly printed money, to the tune of trillions annually, the mining sector, is in a bear market!
I guess if you have endless amounts of money and you want something to happen, you can make it happen.......like selling short gold stocks until it becomes self fulfilling.
I've been in this sector for seven years and this is by far the worst beat down. Seemingly endless. Very aggravating. Also has no ryhme or reason. At some point some of these small-mid tier miners should go private. Trading at very cheap levels.
