On the heels of Monday’s rebound, today legend Pierre Lassonde told King World News that we just saw a major bottom in the gold market. He also shared his top mining stock pick for 2021.

Bottom In Gold
Eric King: “Pierre, we were speaking last Friday and you told me, ‘This is going to be the floor in gold.’ At that time the price of gold was $1,770. You were talking to me about physical demand in the gold market. Can you discuss that physical demand?”
