    Should I buy SLV or PSLV ?

    Here is the first page of the SLV prospectus. It is also interesting to note the following statement on the prospectus that says "The agreement between the trust and the custodian is governed by English law." Perhaps this is why the SEC, etc. doesn't do anything...it's out of their hands. here's the link:


    iShares® Silver Trust
    The iShares® Silver Trust issues shares (“Shares”) representing fractional undivided beneficial interests in
    its net assets. The assets of the trust consist primarily of silver held by the custodian on behalf of the trust. The
    objective of the trust is for the Shares to reflect the price of silver owned by the trust less the trust’s expenses and
    liabilities. The Shares are listed and traded on NYSE Arca under the symbol “SLV”. Market prices for the Shares
    may be different from the net asset value per Share. BlackRock Asset Management International Inc. is the
    sponsor of the trust, The Bank of New York Mellon is the trustee of the trust, and JPMorgan Chase Bank N.A.,
    London branch, is the custodian of the trust. The trust is not an investment company registered under the
    Investment Company Act of 1940. The trust is not a commodity pool for purposes of the Commodity Exchange
    Act, and its sponsor is not subject to regulation by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission as a commodity
    pool operator, or a commodity trading advisor.
    Silver owned by the trust will be held by the custodian in England, New York, and other locations that may
    be authorized in the future.
