The Real Reason Gold FellŚand Why It Has Already Stabilized: Lawrence Roulston (5/8/13) Things are upside down in the gold market.

Lawrence Roulston, editor and publisher of Resource Opportunities, advises people to trust their guts as well as the numbers when weeding through prospective investments. In this interview with The Gold Report, he skirts around conspiracy theories regarding the recent gold sell-off and keeps his advice simple: lower expectations, get rid of poorly performing investments and load up on the companies going cheap.
