I have all my extra money in silver right now. According to the experts there is 17 times more silver in the world than Gold.
if gold is at 900 an ounce then silver would be underpriced at 18 an ounce. Silver could appreciate to 53 an ounce price adjusted to gold in the next couple years.
If the economy continues to spiral down and I personally think it will as energy cost rise, consumer debt climbs, foreclosures increase and banks write off billions more ...precious metal are our best bet.
and yet I still dabble with this retail stuff... ??? I too have seen dismal sales lately. ebay seems broken as buyers have dried up these last few months and my website feels like a ghosttown lately.
well that's my 2 cents... it's not very cheery but I do believe precious metals will pay off. Not gold tho. It's too late for that ride.
good luck !
