We've got a bull market, which everybody knows in stocks, but we also have another bull market-- the other bull market, I should say, in gold. People forget that gold has outperformed stocks this year. All the talk is about stocks, but gold is doing very well and that's a surprise. Let's face it, normally if I'd said, "Oh gee, gold's getting crushed, because, you know, markets are record high, real estate is back up, retail investor optimism is at all-time high," you'd go, "Yeah, all right that makes sense," but all those are true and yet gold's not only doing okay, it's doing great. I mean, it's outperforming both the S&P and the DOW. I think what's driving this is an underlying current of uncertainty. It's clearly not the headline news. It's something sort of underneath like the water tables rising. Clearly, people are feeling uncertain. Well, no surprise with what's happening in North Korea. We have a President who is... uh... it's uncertain almost every day exactly what's going to happen. We have a market that now seven billionaires have said is overvalued or a bubble and they're not saying it's going to pop tomorrow or the next day, but it clearly tells you it's probably something that's not going to be good. I mean, they say it's overvalued. So, all this leads to a lot of uncertainty and I think that's what's propelling gold into this bull market--the other bull market.
