Friedman has been involved in the metals industry since 1980 and been involved in most facets of the bullion industry 35 years. He has extensive knowledge in all facets on the precious metals industry. In addition to his trading experience, he is a well-respected commentator and writes a blog that appears several times a week on the MTB homepage.
