Hi Gwen,

Thank you so much for this excellent Maven letter. Your market analysis and logic is again exceptional. Your insights, knowledge and feel have given me a wonderful couple of hours. I am now planning my activity. I look forward to seeing you tonight on the Virtual Metals forum, I am pleased that you start first as I am a morning not a night person.

I hope you and your family stay well.

Best Regards,

I am very happy with your news letter and enjoy seeing you speak when we get the chance. We have bought stocks that you have recommended and your record of success is much better than any other recommendations out there.
