The Independent Speculator on Theories vs. Facts for Investing

I wrote an article from the heart on investor psychology. I figured few would read it, but I needed to get it off my chest, so I went with a boring title as a nod to Graham-Dodd securities analysis. Much to my surprise, Tom from Palisades Gold Radio wanted to walk through it with me, rather than just ask me for a gold price prediction for 2023. Of course, we did get to my outlook for resource investments this year, but on the way, we had a much more interesting conversation than usual in such an interview. I enjoyed it and hope you do as well.
