That is why, before you watch Nigel Farage’s take on the similarities and differences when it comes to the 1970s, in terms of what’s playing out in financial markets and politics only of course, I’d like to invite you to the Gold Investing Broadcast.
It goes live on Monday, at 4pm, but you can sign up here now, to get the bonus content before then.
