When I first joined ATS, there were at least 5 threads a week where people would try to discourage others from buying gold and silver.
"You can't eat it!", they'd holler. Yet, there was no apparent reason, nothing particularly newsworthy, for the need to create an entire thread
The conclusion I came to, was that, (at least some of), these people probably wanted to buy precious metals themselves, and posting a thread or ten a
week on forums, potentially reaching tens of thousands of people, might just help keep the price down long enough to get a bit more in their greedy
Now silver, because of its abundance, probably shouldn't really be riding the nearly parabolic rocketship along with gold, but most don't know this
and want to make a buck, so they react. I forget what it reached back in the 80's when the market got nearly cornered, but I think it was around
Most of mine I got at $6 oz., so to those that used to say I couldn't eat it.... well... it is what it is .
Take a bite!
