An Oct 11 Highballer report featuring Defense (DEFN.V), Forum (FMC.V), Goldseek (GSK.C), HighGold (HIGH.V), Prime (PRYM), and Teuton (TUO.V)

When the Fed began a hiking cycle way back in 1975, the Dollar soared and Gold got cut in half (from $200 to $100). Towards the end of 75, as higher rates and a soaring Greenback weighed heavily on the U.S. economy, the Fed blinked and backed away from its hawkish ways. That move served […]

The price strength in precious metals continues with gold closing out last week’s session at the highest level in some eight months.

The following is a brief update related to two of the companies we follow closely here at Highballer. Brief, because it’s currently pushing 41C (107F) as I tap away on my keyboard, beads of sweat colonizing my forehead and the nape of my neck. I’ve consumed 8 liters of H2O and my day is barely […]
