What you say doesn't apply to what I hear from a buddy of mine that works for Taiwan Semi. Silver is in extreme high demand and contrary to what you state, it's becoming increasingly difficult to find. That holds true in Taiwan and in the mainland where TSM has manufacturing facilities as well. I won't even go to why Ag is becoming the PM of choice for investors that want to preserve their wealth. Silver has historically been a store of wealth. It will remain that way.
