Ticker Trax’s Thom Calandra writes about leveraging the silver junior mining trail.

While Andrew Mickey of Q1 Publishing provided nine responses to the "gold is a bubble" crowd.

Top Bullboards post: “I know they want to focus on Alzheimers with this PR but I think the PR would have had a lot more impact if they would have ended the PR with a reminder of the positive ASSERT findings on CVD that were so misinterpreted by the media the first time around. It would have provided the PR with a great 2 for 1 (2 massively widespread diseases) benefit from the one drug. Two huge potential markets also spreads the risk compared to just one market. Both of these markets are not only huge but also increasingly in the spolight imo.” From golfyeti on the Resverlogix (TSX: T.RVX, Stock Forum) board.

Top Bullboard:Wi-LAN Inc. (TSX: T.WIN, Stock Forum) received the most reads and posts.

Top blog: RedMars posted an interesting article about picking a winning junior gold miner in the Notes From a Cyber Trader blog.
