Casey's Louis James Warns: 'Don't Try to Time the Market' (8/14/13) Don't ask Louis James if the gold price has reached bottom. He doesn't care. The senior editor with Casey Research is too busy trying to ferret out those gold miners with a bird in the hand, as he calls it in this interview with The Gold Report. He travels the world, most recently visiting Ethiopia, looking for companies with an overlooked story, an undervalued mine, an underappreciated grade. While James knows no one can time the market, he is quite certain he has found some good values.
