Gold & Silver Down, but not out! DROOY - HL - Miners - Currencies

There is news on DROOY and HL today. Be sure and read those two articles. Both gold and silver are down from recent highs, but both are holding at nice levels now. Each is showing resiliency. We could have another buying opportunity. I will report by email any activity on my part. You consider your position and make your own decisions. 

As I have mentioned in the past Proverbs 16:3, "Commit your works to the Lord, and your thoughts will be established." Your works must follow the way of the Lord for them to be firmly established by Him. Of course, He does not always provide exactly what we sought, but often provides a different result to redirect our paths in His way. We can only know His way as the Holy Spirit reveals it to us in His written word. Therefore, we must diligently study the word of God and prayerfully seek the teaching of the Holy Spirit to put us firmly on the path that our Lord King Jesus desires for us to follow. This is import!
