At the beginning of 2008 no one anticipated that the global financial markets would suffer such a steep decline as has happened since September. Several months ago when we asked readers to guess which commodity price would gain the most this year, 41% of them answered “gold”. Well, the gold price hasn’t gained, but it hasn’t lost as much as some other metals.
This week, we are asking our readers to indicate their best guesses as to which metal will see the greatest price loss in 2008. Please go to the CMJ homepage, www.CanadianMiningJournal.com, and vote in the Hot Topic Opinions box on the right-hand side of the page.
