Kitco Reshuffles Commentary Lineup

By Kitco News, Montreal
Friday, February 1, 2013 has added two names to its roster of prominent commentators. Peter Hug, Global Trading Director for Kitco Metals, and Jim Wyckoff, senior analyst for Kitco Media, will be regularly featured under the site's popular commentary section.

"The addition of these two names just adds even more of a reason to come to for all precious metals analysis," said John Dourekas, Kitco's Media Director. "Peter is a seasoned trader with more than 30 years' experience in the business, and Jim has spent more than 25 years involved with stock, financial, and commodity markets."

Hug and Wyckoff are no strangers to the Kitco Internet site, as both have weekly shows on Kitco's Video News Channel. Hug is the star of "For Pete's Sake," which takes a look inside the mindset of a seasoned trader, and Wyckoff stars in "Technically Speaking," which sheds light on key trading levels for precious metals.

Other changes to the site include the departure of Jon Nadler, a long-time consultant and regular contributor. Nadler started his collaboration with the company in 2006 and was a cornerstone of the contributed commentaries section of and a regular on the trades how circuit.

"We appreciate Jon's contributions to the company and wish him well," Dourekas said. "We are dedicated to having the best-of-the best expert analysis on, and solidifying our role as the go-to site for all precious metals information. We have the most frequently quoted analysts and that is a reflection of our commitment to content, accuracy, and speed."

Opinion Around the World Is Changing
in Favor of Gold -- Find Out Why

When Deutschebank calls gold "good money" and paper "bad money". ...

When the president of the German central bank, the Bundesbank, pays tribute to gold as "a timeless classic". ...

When a leading member of the policy committee of the People's Bank of China calls the gold standard "an excellent monetary system". ...

When a CNN reporter writes in The China Post that the "gold commission" plank in the 2012 Republican platform will "reverberate around the world". ...

World opinion is changing in favor of gold.

How can you learn why and what it will mean to you?

Read the newly updated and expanded edition of Lehrman's book, "The True Gold Standard."

Financial journalist James Grant says of "The True Gold Standard": "If you have ever wondered how the world can get from here to there -- from the chaos of depreciating paper to a convertible currency worthy of our children and our grandchildren -- wonder no more. The answer, brilliantly expounded, is between these covers. America has long needed a modern Alexander Hamilton. In Lewis E. Lehrman she has finally found him."
