I am Robert Kientz, the editor and publisher of Gold Silver Pros.com. Our premium (formerly paid) subscriber digest emphasizes long-term, cycle investing in the precious metals markets. I am also the author of the 2010 book, Drop Shadow: The Truth About the Economy.
My work has been featured on Yahoo Finance, Market Watch, NASDAQ.com, Seeking Alpha, Talk Markets, Stockhouse, Mining Feeds, APMEX, Gold$eek, Financial Sense, Technically Speaking, and Silver Doctors, among others.
My formal education consists of a Masters degree in Information Security and a B.Sc in Business Administration. I started in finance two decades ago receiving college instruction in accounting, finance, marketing, and global business.
In addition, I have completed government-issued financial license programs in the commodities, Forex, bonds, insurance, stocks, and precious metals markets.
Further, I have over 18 years experience as a real estate investor, having founded and run two companies in Texas that purchase, rent, manage, and sell investment real estate.
Gold Silver Pros
I started Gold Silver Pros in 2018 after writing on various other financial blogs for almost 10 years. All of our content is now published in this space, and we have extended the value of our work by adding a premium subscription news service focused on the precious metals markets.
Our research at Gold Silver Pros is based upon over 20 years of investment experience in the bond, stock, real estate, commodities, Forex, and precious metals markets. One of the key concepts I learned from a generation of investing is how to recognize bull market cycles, and how to focus one’s energy on specific investments designed to take advantage of these very rare opportunities.
Asset cycles can last for decades. The current gold asset cycle is the largest I have ever charted, and my service will show you how to capitalize on what I believe to be the biggest generational wealth pattern of our lifetimes.
