People LOVE "cheap"
Even when it isn't.
But they see it cheap-ER and lose their perspective. Gold is the "money metal" and always will be.
There's a reason silver is "poor man's gold."
They ignore outrageous spreads and periodic supply problems and ascribe those problems to things that aren't true.
MOST of the time, a shortage of a silver product is just a lag in getting one size product poured into the "popular" form for the day.
What's especially neat is how silver spreads reverse when the market does.
You will NEVER be able to buy it when it's low.
Nor sell it when it's high.
Not with a consistent spread anyhow.
Silver's okay, but the farm shouldn't be bet on it.
