One Critically Hot Metal, Cobalt

Cobalt 12 Year Price Chart: Infomine

Cobalt is hard not to love right now and a handful of junior companies have sprung to life in the wake of cobalt’s aggressive two year price run.

An Artificial Intelligence System called MogIA that correctly predicted the previous three elections, plus the most recent Republican and Democratic primaries, claims that Trump will win this upcoming election.

What’s in the News August 2, 2016

News

As politics in the US circuses onward, over the pond the UK may have stepped up a political notch with the appointment of Theresa May as Prime Minister and leader of the Conservative Party. Some have even commented that it feels more like a change in government rather than party leadership, as she seems to lean liberally towards language that would suggest a “kinder brand of capitalism”. Britain is biking up a steep hill for a while, expending administrative and political energy on organizing … [Read more...]
