What the gold sector has needed for years is generalist interest in the space, and one demographic in particular that has shied away from the sector is now showing unprecedented interest, according to Lobo Tiggre, principal analyst of the Independent Speculator.
“Young people today understand that there is a risk in calling something money that governments can create at will at no cost. That’s completely different than anything we’ve seen before,” Tiggre told Kitco News, noting that there has been a surge of trading activity on Robinhood, the web-based discount brokerage, in gold-backed exchange traded funds.
Lobo Tiggre, aka Louis James, is a legendary speculator and was Doug Casey’s protégé at Casey Research for almost 14 years, until early 2018. He joined the Casey team in 2004. By 2007, he was writing and making investment recommendations in Casey’s flagship newsletter, the International Speculator. Now he brings his experience, his connections and his deal flow directly to you, without the barrage of marketing hype used by larger publishers. He is now the editor of IndependentSpeculator.com.
