Precious metals (PM) have really struggled this week, with the following weekly movement in USD:
Gold TVC:GOLD -5.65%
Silver TVC:SILVER -7.17%
Platinum TVC:PLATINUM -7.2%
Palladium TVC:PALLADIUM -8.23%

South Africa ETF, showing a triple top in the mid 70s on the all time high chart. The country is about to run out of clean water, a civil war is looming. Media refuses to cover it as well, so normies won't dump it till its too late. My largest position right now. Will sit in this until it dumps.
