The Gold Stock Technician newsletter covers Gold and Gold Stocks along with Precious Metals and other global markets. The letter operates on a "flexible" publishing schedule, which means we write when we believe we have the most to say, but is invariably a "weekly letter" that normally comes out on Monday or Tuesday nights. A one-year subscription includes special flash updates that are issued when markets are moving rapidly and/or whenever there are particular buy or sell points on individual securities.
The Gold Stock Technician newsletter seeks to reduce the volatility inherent in owning high beta mining stocks by using market timing to avoid the bulk of extended market declines. We track several real money portfolios of our mining stock picks in order to help the individual investor get solid ideas on which companies will perform the best. We also issue regular advice on Gold ETFs including the GLD and GDX for those investors who like the index qualities found in exchange traded funds. The regular price for GST is $340 per year with checks or US Dollar money orders made out to The Gold Stock Technician.
