What got you talking yesterday

This week’s most popular story in Twitter was Mike Cooper’s recap of coking coal and iron ore prices. Both are key ingredients of steelmaking and economists view price levels as indications of industrial economic activity.

Another much discussed and volatile commodity this week has been gold which dropped following the Pfizer vaccine news. Sam Jacobs spoke with Sprott Group’s Rick Rule about where the precious metal is headed next.
