“We’re hoping that [mortgage servicers are] going to take advantage of the bill. We had a number of choices in order to diminish the foreclosure. And I think diminishing the number of foreclosures is going to be the important part of turning the economy around. I think we now have an opportunity to do that.”

Gold to Continue its Bull Run?

“The gold market is consolidating very nicely. Possibility to plop down to $908, but overall, the market is very good. We’re anticipating the market to do one of two options, we can consolidate through until the 12th of September and then make a breakout from the $957 level, or we can target the 21st of August and go for $1023.72, which if we break above that, will then signal the next part of the bull rally. ”
