For those that are firm believers in business cycles, you are aware that the seven year cycle is in play. The last peaks in the business cycles were on 2007 and 2000. Before that it was in 1993 and predictably before that it was in 1986. More crises in the world will ultimately drive down the markets from 2014, many analysts predict; which of course is very beneficial to the precious metals market. 2015 will be a turnaround year for gold and silver markets if history is any indication of future results.
