Thanks You for Visiting!





My name is Steven Warrenfeltz, I created this guide to give you an honest place, on the web, that provides reliable bullion market information.

This guide is a little unusual to other guides because it not only offers bullion market information, it also advocates for Gold Nanoparticle Cancer Research, and supports individuals who are Battling cancer

A few decades ago, I made a graveside promise to a childhood friend who died of cancer that I would help those who are battling cancer.

I created this guide to help people understand how precious metals help them preserve the value of their savings and or investments while trying to fulfill a promise.


See this guide's Mission page for more information.

Brief History of the
Chinese Calendar




In 2637 B.C., a Chinese Emperor named Huangdi invented the Chinese Calendar.

The Lunar Calendar is steeped in tradition, based on the appearance of the new moon, the calendar associates a different animal with each year in the 12 year cycle.

The Chinese believe each animal has a profound influence on the characteristics of those born under the year of its rule.
