Our clients, which range from global mining companies to institutional wealth managers, use our proprietary research to inform their investment decisions, capital allocation decisions, treasury operations and business risk assessments.

Capitalight Research’s flagship publication is the internationally read Gold Monitor, which has been published for nearly 40 years. The Gold Monitor is quantitative driven with the analysis that only many years of experience of closely monitoring the market can provide. Our analysis integrates the current bullish and bearish factors driving the gold price, then ranks these factors according to the most relevant.
The monthly Silver Monitor features deep dive analysis into the underpinnings of the silver market. This publication covers not only silver market supply and demand factors, but also macroeconomic factors and events on the silver price. Past topics have included interest rates, inflation, government policy, recessions, market volatility and the US dollar. We include an updated quarterly scenario-based silver price forecast
