Charles Gibson, an analyst with London-based Edison Investment Research, is nervous.

2015: A Year of Investing Perspective

As we at The Gold Report interviewed the investing stars in 2015, we saw some patterns develop.

Crises come and go, cycles have their way with commodities and then move on only to return again under another headline. Smart investors, according to the experts we interviewed, know that the way to weather these storms is to be diversified. The way to profit from them is to be contrarian.
