James Dines Follows His Prediction of a Commodity Crash with Another One the Mainstream Media Is Ignoring (5/3/13)
When the metals markets tumbled in mid-April, The Gold Report reached out to "the original investor bug" and author of The Dines Letter, James Dines, for perspective. He predicted a crash in commodity prices two years ago based on his analysis of a weak Chinese economy. Next, he says, will be a bond market bust once interest rates start to climb.
