"Ranting" Andy Hoffman and I sat down again; fortunately, we did it a few days later than usual. We got to discuss the opening parabolic warm-up shot that gold and silver took today. If you've been listening to Andy and the Financial Survival Network, this should have been just another day at the office. We knew it was coming, it was always a matter of when not if. And today, we got our answer. Because the metals have been artificially depressed, there is still time for some real profits, meaning profits over and above the actual inflation rate. The key is to buy before the big move takes place. The energy and strength of today's upside move means the wait could well be over.

At the risk of being premature, FSN has been seeing unmistakable signs of an early spring awakening for gold and silver. And the stocks could be well-positioned, but my as well as Andy's primary focus is on the actual physical metals. Because no one knows what is going to happen to the economy, both locally and internationally, it is urgent that you have a core holding of physical metals. How much? That is a decision for each individual to make based upon their own circumstances. Some people say 10 percent of total assets is adequate. Others say the number is much higher. But in any event, there is no right or wrong answer. It's dependent upon your needs and wants.

Bob, "The International Forecaster" and I sat down for a brief chat about the economy, gold, silver and the mining shares.  Bob explains that frugal management, especially in the early years, is extremely important.  Management should be involved to make profits from the eventual success of the project, rather than cashing in on high salaries and other compensations; share structure is also quite important. When companies have hundreds of millions of shares outstanding, before producing one ounce, this will greatly lessen the potential future share appreciation.

Focus is also extremely important; concentration on a few or even just one project is very important for a junior minor. This will assure management makes the most of every opportunity. But in the final analysis, the price of gold and silver is going to be the main factor. And here Bob is emphatic it's going no where but up. 2012 could very well be the most important year in the history of modern finance. As we were talking, gold went up over $30 per ounce on news that the Fed would keep its foot on the monetary gas pedal. Subsequently, the outlook for the economy was diminished. It is these kinds of economic fundamentals that have shown Bob to be right far more than he's been wrong.

Greg McCoach is a frequent guest on the show. As I've stated before, he is one of the most canny mining stock investors around. His MiningSpeculator is invaluable when it comes to the number of stocks it covers and the depth of analysis it provides. Greg is not one to sugar coat poor performance or less than stellar management. As you'll hear now, "he has a bone to pick" with several companies. But there's a number of other companies that he's extremely bullish about.

Greg is brutally honest and never boring. The Financial Survival Network's thesis for 2012 is this year will prove to be a Gold Rush of epic proportions. Unlike others, we're not going to hedge and give you a bunch of platitudes about if this, that, or the other happens then things will be good. Frankly, we see nothing on the horizon to undermine the newly found confidence in precious metals as preserver and insurer of wealth around the world. We believe that when 2012 is looked at in the rearview mirror, many people will be kicking themselves for missing such easy opportunities to protect and increase wealth.
