Dear Reader,

'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the market, not a trader was stirring, not even a goldbug…

Well, maybe not. But many gold investors have grown rather quiet as 2013 comes to a close. So by way of a reminder that spring follows winter, especially in cyclical markets, Casey Metals Analyst Laurynas Vegys has collected some encouraging thoughts for us all.

We'll be taking a break from these daily dispatches until January 2, so I want to add my personal encouragement to all our readers—and thanks for your interest and frequent support.

May you all have wonderful holidays—whichever one(s) you celebrate—and may we all have a very, prosperous 2014!

Sincerely,

Louis James
Senior Metals Investment Strategist
