Topics covered: Precious Metals, Energy, Stocks, and Bonds. Geopolitical and (beyond) macro will be a big part of the analysis. Formats will be both short and long form as well as pdf for reports. Multiple styles including written, podcasts, and video are used.

With the Substack model, GoldFix is trying to synthesize those things described herein for people who want to learn more about markets as trader, investor, and student. The format we’ve decided on is like a classic Weekday/Sunday newspaper.


Two posts per day, one per weekend

As a Premium subscriber, you receive: An almost daily Gold/Silver/Macro Market Rundown post including bleeding edge research, a frequent Technical podcast for active traders in Gold and Stockmarkets, and a Weekly GoldFix recap. Finally, in a global market effecting event, we will be in touch before most anyone else.

The Weekly GoldFix report will read more like a long-form Financial newspaper. Included are: original unfiltered analysis of market behavior, news items implications explained, drill downs on high level concepts as read in Zerohedge (e.g. RRP, Gamma etc) and explanations of how to use tools like Moor Analytics reports.

Finally, on many weekdays we will send a PM GoldFix with a list of stories posted and read. There is a lot of valuable content. And not just metals.


Founders receive more of the above for starters ( in a separate Founders Post) early access to cutting edge reports, direct access to us for trade ideas4. And GoldFix sponsors Founders for a full Zerohedge Premium account at our5 cost.


As a young trader Vincent was fortunate to have some extremely good teachers. Mentors include Martin Shafiroff, Roy Neff, Global Heads of GSCI et al, Market Wizard Larry Benedict, and other legends with whom he still collaborates. They helped him create a knowledge-base and synthesize abilities in a way few can6.

Vince, in all fairness I have learned so much from you so far. I truly think you are a walking encyclopedia when it comes to trading. And you taught us how to differentiate those who benefit from misleading us. And how to filter major media news. People do a lot for the money. I pray we preserve our integrity, and keep our dignity. And beat them at their own game if we can.- H

He also traded counter to some of the biggest names in Gold, Silver, Oil, and Nat Gas where much “learning” was done. Vincent’s own gift is an ability to translate these lessons for others. During my career I’ve taught future multi-millionaires how to trade and designed/created trading platforms like ICE’s Options software. Frankly, there is little I have not seen or been in the middle of in Commodity markets from: pit to screen, witness to victim of manipulation, and sqeezee to squeezor. Now, I enjoy writing and teaching. Finally, he is passionate about leveled playing fields for investors.
