Regardless, at some point gold, and to a lesser extent silver, will eventually detach themselves from the gyrations taking place between the Euro and U.S. dollar. Those fiat currencies are racing to the bottom and there's no way possible for them to drag silver and gold along for the whole downward slide. Nevertheless, during dark days like today I sometimes pull out a silver eagle, hold it in my hand, and only see a piece of shiny metal. But on rising silver days, those silver eagles feel like a REAL money/currency.
This volatility is making me go bi-polar! And...I added some shares today...a little too early!
