Inflation is beginning to ramp up, what does this mean for gold and silver?
November 11 (King World News) – Peter Boockvar: I included a chart in the CRB food index yesterday morning and during the trading day after the USDA ending stocks data came out (and were less than expected) corn rallied 3.8% to the highest since July 2019, soybeans by 3% to the highest since July 2016 and wheat by 1.8%.

Refi’s were up by .6% w/o/w and 67% y/o/y.
