Kitco’s Daniela Cambone puts The Independent Speculator on the spot, asking me to predict the future of world events in 2019. I dodge the question by highlighting the key variable to watch, which will set the tone for commodities for years to come, but Dani doesn’t let me off the hook, asking which metal is the best bet for 2019. That one I had no trouble answering, because it’s not a prediction; it’s an assessment of the current risks and rewards available.
