My first interview with Lyn Alden was one of the most popular interviews I’ve done. Beyond that, I’ve come to rely on Lyn’s Macro analysis. Honestly, I think she does a more comprehensive and detailed job of it than I have time for. So, I was keen to get her take on things—including the metals and commodities I’m most interested in—as we wrap up 2021 and head into a brave new year. And she sure did deliver food for thought. I hope you find it as valuable as I do.
