Precious metals like silver and especially gold have had a stellar year, to put it mildly.
The physical bullion-backed SPDR Gold Trust ETF, probably the easiest way to invest in gold, is up more than 30% this year.
If you bought it at the March bottom, you'd be up even more, nearly 37% or so.
Since the last great gold bull market ended in 2011, this is the most movement (and most profit) gold investors have seen.
It's undeniably exciting.
Thanks to the bull run, gold seems to be everywhere; Wall Street is talking about it again, ads for gold are everywhere on television, and mobile app-based traders are piling in.
In the long term, they're absolutely right: Gold and silver will keep rising, and I'll show you why.
But do not join the crowd. At least not yet. What's unfolding right now will burn many overeager traders before it creates a big buying opportunity.
The real short-term opportunity I'll show you in a minute holds even bigger profit potential, and it won't be long in coming...
