About David Levenstein

David is the founder and owner of Lakeshore Trading. He is also recognized as a leading expert on investing in precious metals.

David began his career in precious metals in 1980 through the London Metals Exchange (LME) where he spent most of his time trading silver. In those years the smallest contract was 10,000 ounces and silver was still quoted in sterling. There were no fax machines and online trading was impossible. All deals had to be executed telephonically.

Diverse Trading Experience

Best Silver, Gold & Platinum Prices
Over the years, David has dealt with gold, silver, platinum and palladium. He has traded and invested in bullion bars, bullion coins, mining shares, exchange traded funds, as well as futures and options.

Today, he encourages people to own the physical metal and store it out of the banking system. He is also outspoken about government corruption, bank fraud and market rigging and writes about how economic, political and social developments effect precious metals prices.

His articles and commentaries on precious metals have been published in dozens of newspapers and, magazines both locally as well as internationally. The best known websites in the world devoted to precious metals regularly post his commentaries on gold and silver. He has been a featured guest on numerous radio and TV shows. He offers his newsletter free of charge to readers in more than 50 countries.

Since 2010, David has written the daily and weekly reports for Rand Refinery of South Africa, the largest integrated single-site precious metals refining and smelting complex in the world.

A Pioneer in the South African Precious Metals Market

Through his company Lakeshore Trading, David introduced South African investors to a wide range of bullion items produced by some of the worlds’ best known refineries and mints. He was responsible for introducing the American Silver Eagle, the Canadian Maple Leaf and the Mexican Libertad coins to South African investors as well as a range of bullion bars produced by world-renown international refiners and producers.

David is known to interact with most of his clients in an attempt to help them select the most suitable portfolio of precious metals. And, he has often made personal deliveries to clients.

Being South Africa’s leading expert on investing in physical precious metals, David does not deal with numismatic coins, and is opposed to companies that try to beguile investors into believing that grossly overpriced limited edition medallions are credible investments.

David has lived and worked in Johannesburg, Los Angeles, London, Hong Kong, Bangkok, and Bali.
