Solari Update: Precious Metals Market Report with Franklin Sanders
"People handling power are like electrical power systems. Too little resistance and they burn out. Too much resistance and nothing happens."
-- Court Skinner
Given recent events, it's timely that this Thursday is the Precious Metals Market Report with Franklin Sanders.
Gold and silver prices have come down sharply in the last week. We will revisit market fundamentals and Franklin will take a look at the current charts and what these drops mean for fourth quarter market performance.
I will be speaking to you from Holland, location for the upcoming Global Breakthrough Energy Conference. I will cover the election results, including the European response.
I will start with Money and Markets and Ask Catherine. Please post your questions on the blog.
Last but not least, I will review Franklin's new book, At Home in Dogwood Mudhole and invite Franklin to delight you with a few stories from it. We will also update you on the Transformation & Renewals conference in Tennessee last month.

Make donations to Mr. Gatto's recovery
As the holiday season approaches, we continue to reflect on our many blessings, including your friendship and support. We also continue to reflect on safe food.
Last year, we made a single donation to Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund, which protects the rights of farmers and consumers to engage in direct commerce. Two years ago we made donations to local food banks and farmers' markets in every state and country where we have subscribers: all 50 U.S. states and 23 countries.
This year, we've decided to make a donation to Jeffrey M. Smith's organization, Institute for Responsible Technology responsibletechnology.org. You may remember that Jeffrey was on The Solari Report on September 20th and is the leading advocate of promoting healthier, non-GMO food options. We also would like to donate to three more causes, but we need your help. Healthy food is so important and we want to support those who are fighting to protect us from GMOs. Do you know authors, attorneys, scientists, artists, musicians, or activists who are making a positive impact on our world and protecting us from dangerous food? We want to know about them. Please send information about these incredible people and how we can support them to firstname.lastname@example.org
