Metals actually rally in an economic recovery due to more dollars exchanged leading to inflation.
In 2008 when the markets sold off gold was down and then picked up in 2010 as the economy recovered. Also gold tends to do well in low interest rate environments where more dollars are being circulated.
Agree, someone has put away a lot of stock. My guess is "something" is in the wind…just don't know how long it will take. Take a look at Elemetal website…powerful, well connected group….DGSE only public vehicle they have in their stable…interesting possibilities.
