Yes, you are exactly right. It is easy for me to see the relationship between the price of the PM's and government policy. Both economic policy and manipulation of the markets.
This chart shows a four year period where everyone on this board lost their ass in the PM's because they weren't watching what moves the market. Ending 2015. Then a five year period of manipulation and sideways gold prices. Finally this year when the bull market started because of government caused inflation and the market reacting.
Anyone who can't see the cause and effect should try something else beside the PM's.
We'll see, good trading.
