There are justifiable reasons why most of these gold and silver message boards are filled with haters. Who in their right mind wants to "invest" a single penny into the pathetic gold and silver sector that exists to be robbed and raped repeatedly by the banks and funds that control it? For decades, the banks and funds repeatedly have had their CFTC shills change regs to serve short interests to the detriment of gold and silver retail bagholders....for decades, they blatantly used inside info provided by Treasury and Fed puppets to the detriment of gold and silver retail bagholders.... for years, they have subverted the gold and silver market to benefit the US Dollar long players, all of whom are bank and fund insiders. It is a NO-WIN sector for anybody other than the banks and funds who typically maintain SHORT and PUT positions in the rotten sector 95% of the time. Once you fully understand those facts, you would never buy a single long or call position in anything gold or silver unless you are abjectly lacking in brain material or if somebody put a gun against your head to do so.
