Honestly , Only and this is a BIG ONLY , Only if Industrial would be forced to compete with investor demand bidding. Companies that use a ton of supply and have #$%$ loads of cash would be able to get what they needed and probably put it out of reach of most investors if they needed to. Companies like Apple and all those Solar companies... But as of now the industrial demand is being met and at cheap costs and us investors are the ones who are seeing LOW SUPPLY And High premiums... Look for Deals and Low hanging fruit / Bigger bars . In the end game silver is silver and will be bought for much higher costs and used for industrial only in the end.
PS. I saw a Small clip this A.M. were TEXAS was stamping out there own republic of Texas coins out of silver... Now lets remember that texas was just recently asking for its gold back... Could it be that the state is ready to go back to its own governing ? The man said today that United states needs texas , Texas doesnt need the united states.... WOW... Seems they want to move away from the Fed and their governing....
Ideal- u are definitely one of the wise wons (intentionally spelled wrong) posts keep me sane with all the negative irrationals. I am sticking with silver heading to a 15:1 ratio to gold.
1) silver naturally is about 15:1 ratio to gold, 2) invest silver is 8:1 ratio to gold 3) silver current price is 62:1 (can you spell BARGAIN) 4) silver all time high was $50 5) silver has more industrial uses than gold, only downside is it tarnishes . 6) Texas, Arizona, Utah and maybe Washington state and others are getting out of the dollar game, we could have a sort of financial-currency civil war.
TECHNICALLY: 1) silver extremly oversold 2) silver decline for several months - unsustainable 3) held at support and held at 23 Silver (22 SLV).
shorty - you are right short term, long term I think not so much.
