Many people keep an eye on the precious metals markets, as those segments have tremendous profit potential. Stewart Thomson can be classified as a silver bug, primarily because he expects things to head in a very promising direction. 

Who is Stewart Thomson?

People who have kept a close eye on the precious metals industry may know the name Stewart Thomson. He is the president of Graceland Investment Management Ltd and president of Graceland Investment Management Inc. By being in charge of two major firms, Thomson has garnered a lot of financial expertise, although his career got a much earlier start.

One could argue that Thomson has always had a link with silver. At the age of 17, he already ran a rather successful silver-selling venture in Vancouver. Thousands of people wanted to buy the precious metal from him, further confirming that he had a knack for capitalizing on market demand. 

Further in his career, Thomson served as a broker and a writer of a daily newsletter. His way of communicating investment ideas to a broad audience has become legendary, primarily due to his passion for English literature. 

Stewart Thomson the Investor

Due to his vast expertise in the financial sector Thomson became fascinated by the trading floors of large banks. To the outside world, those trading floors may seem hectic, but everything is orchestrated in its own manner and clicks together nicely. 

For Thomson, this interest in trading floors allowed him to develop a different way of allocating capital. Known as PGEN, it is a sort of “pyramid” that gives investors of all kinds an option to mimic the action of banks in the gold market. 

Later on, the PGEN grew out to be a capital allocation tool for all major markets, regardless of the involvement of precious metals. It is a method that investors seem to appreciate, which would explain his current position as president of two major investment organizations.

In late 2019, Thomson shared some interesting opinions on the silver market. He expects silver to have a bigger breakout than gold, which would be very interesting to behold. All of this will be driven by an increase in US debt. The COVID-19 pandemic may prove to be an interesting catalyst in that regard. 

Noteworthy Newsletters by Stewart Thomson

To this day, Stewart Thomson still runs a daily unique newsletter based on PGEN through the Graceland Updates website. It helps investors manage their emotions while trading. Buying or selling assets and commodities based on emotions is always a good way to lose money.

Other newsletters written by Thomson focus on the Elliott Wave pattern, dividends, and a trading service. He is a key example of putting  a lifetime of experience to use to help others who share a similar passion.
