Gold Nerds

Company Research

We live in a global economy where it makes sense to explore the multitude of markets that are available to choose from. Here at The Global Speculator we leave no stone unturned in our quest to discover precious metals companies with the best potential. Our research spans over 10 exchanges from around the world. We have found that many exchanges deal with certain target areas better than others and in order to comprehensively give yourself the best choice you need to broaden your horizons. We were previously involved with research group GoldNerds which presently markets one of the most comprehensive and sophisticated research tools presently available.

GoldNerds allows investors to take a mountain of publicly available information and slice and dice it in such a way as to provide a useful shortlist of companies to focus their attention on. You essentially tell the spreadsheet what you want to see in a gold mining company and the spreadsheet will generate a list of companies ranked according to your specific needs. Up until our departure from the company in November 2011, the Professional version of the product played an integral role in our day to day research. To see examples of how we applied the product profitably I encourage you to visit the Latest Research section on the home page. For a look at some of the results we achieved from that reseach I encourage you to peruse the following. .
