This is to report a switch in the publication of my gold commentary articles from tomorrow onwards. After running, and then writing freelance for, Mineweb for the past nine years, I will be ceasing to do so by mutual consent from midnight tonight. However I will not be ceasing to write! For the foreseeable future I will be writing precious metals commentary for www.sharpspixley.com and www.biznews.com/gold as well as here on lawrieongold – with maybe the occasional article on Seeking Alpha.
If you enjoy reading my material, or find it valuable, you may be best served by adding the sharpspixley and biznews sites into your bookmarks – they are both totally free to access.
Sharps Pixley is a London-based precious metals dealer and information supplier and is part of the huge German Degussa group. It is run by Ross Norman, a very well known forecaster and commentator on gold and precious metals markets in his own right. It has one of the oldest names in precious metals trade and is launching a brand new bullion sales ‘shop front’ outlet in London’s West End later this year. The site publishes daily updated precious metals news headlines as well as commentary written specifically for it by its own group of writers.
Biznews is a South African general investment site and its gold section has been set up recently aimed at an international audience. Biznews is owned and run by Moneyweb and Mineweb founder, Alec Hogg, a hugely respected South African financial journalist. It is a recent and rapidly growing website, still largely focused on southern Africa, and will enable me to renew my association with Alec who originally hired me to manage, edit and write for Mineweb nearly a decade ago.
