Later, Tom Cloud discusses the metal that people are asking about most lately: palladium. Tom remains extremely bullish on palladium, but expects another pullback by July. Gold is about to enter its “seasonal” time during which it has gone up three months in a row historically (July, August, September). European sources are saying that gold shorting is coming down heavily, and gold may be at the bottom. Silver is still hovering around its bottom line, near $21.50. Listen to Tom’s full discussion in this week’s Precious Metals Market Update.
