The United States Government’s plan to rid banks of lethal assets has precious metals investors speculating that the economy and lending groups may be reviving. The news of this plan ignited the biggest rally in stocks since November of 2008 as the Dow Jones gained nearly 500 points early in the week; however, many of these stocks gave up some of their gains by midweek. Overall, the precious metals outlook continues to be good as investors are still very bullish on commodities. If anything, this recession has clearly demonstrated to the world that possessing physical precious metal in your investment portfolio is a must have!
