We are always looking at history. This is due to the assumption that the near history will have some impact soon.
When it comes to investing in precious metals many investors confuse paper assets (like stocks, bonds, ETF’s) and the rot of money.
I’ll not say which of the two is best. That depends on what you are looking for.
If we look at what is happening in the precious metals market it is hard to understand them. Mainstream (financial) media is not covering. There are almost no analyst reports available.
But the media is exactly where people tend to get the information. So how can we blame them for not going into precious metals? It shows there is work needed to do in the media.
One thing that many people are not getting is the importance of the vaults. How much is where? If I raise this question about the Silver market it is easy. Half of the stored Silver is owned by ETF’s.
Silver is, due to another, reason very interesting. The production of Silver is on a rapid decline. With Silver being mined as a side product, there are almost no investments.
So the precious metals market deserves your attention. For your protection, it is best to invest in it.
