Trouble Is Brewing in the Paper Markets for Gold and Silver

Silver, Gold, and What Could Go Wrong

Richard Russell is almost 90 years old and has seen it all.  He recently stated: “My advice, as it has been, is to move to the sidelines while holding large positions in physical silver and gold.  Regardless of what the markets do, silver and gold represent eternal wealth, and the bid to sleep undisturbed at night.  No amount of money is worth the loss of peace of mind.  The power of gold opened the American West and populated Alaska.  Men have spent their lives searching for gold.  You can own gold by the simple action of swapping Federal Reserve notes for the yellow metal.  I advise you to do it.”  […]

Marc Faber: I Don’t Feel Comfortable Holding Cash With Banks

I was expecting gold to be in a correcting mode after 2011, but I didn’t expect the price to come down this much because had I expected it to happen and had I been sure about it happening, I probably would have sold my gold and bought it back more recently.
