    Precious Metal Prices Rising

    I've been keeping my eye on the prices of Gold and Silver recently, partly due to having some extra money that I'm wanting to put into those. They both have been increasing quite quickly. Gold has been increasing in price by $10-20 per day. Might be a sign that people are starting to worry a little.

    The stock market took a beating today. They blame the cornhole virus, when stocks go down, precious metals go up....usually.....

    Buying due to this isn’t the most prudent thing. Not unless you are a short term trader.

    You buy and low sell high if you are investing, common sense 101. However, precious metals are best used as a hedge against a fiat currency. You should be buying silver at or around $14.50 and gold around or under $1100.

    You would be best served listening to Denton.

    Gold and silver are good prepper items to me I am a believer and so long as my essentials are met I’m glad to buy the routinely regardless of temporary market changes. Yes I sold a bunch in 2011/12 because that $40 plus an ounce was sweet off a $5-6 an ounce investment in the 80’s/90’s. Now I’m too old sell I just buy to preserve what I’ve built up.

    I would probably stop buying at $25 silver and already have stopped on gold.

    When the spread of the virus slows down bullion prices will probably fall back slowly to the 16-$17 range over the next year. This assumes that a democrat doesn't win the next election. I'd be more tempted to sell than buy at this time.

    Just my uninformed opinion...

    Gold is a hedge, not so much an investment. One could make an argument for silver as a long term investment: the industrial uses of silver keep consuming it, and we only pull maybe 850,000 ounces out of the ground a year.

    Wall Street silver prices verses Street Value for Silver

    Yesterday my wife made another silver purchase (Silver Eagles).
    The local price was $28.50 - this is the current street price for physical.

    The Wall Street published rate of $17.50 yesterday is for paper futures silver (promises to deliver someday), a con.

    So what does all this mean to silver stackers?

    My Daughter-In-Law withdrew a sizeable sum from her 401(k) last year on May 28, 2019.
    She incurred a 10% penalty plus regular tax on the full withdrawal as penalties for early withdrawal.
    She paid the penalty and taxes out of her withdrawal and invested the rest in silver.

    AFTER deducting the penalties, the difference from her total withdrawal and its current street value today,
    she made a 42% Return on her Investment in just one year.

    It appears the silver prices are about to take off now.

    P.S. If my D-I-L had purchased with cash and not incurred the tax penalties, her Rate of Return would have been 68% for the year.
