If you have no background in macroeconomics then stop reading. This is basic. The Dollar is floating on #$%$ and tomfoolery. The Chinese among others are buying up gold and silver because the basic support for the dollar is weak. NO case can be made for the strength of the dollar and quite frankly it would be to our benefit if the dollar weakened. The stock market in general is so precariously perched that a breeze would blow it away. I have been buying silver since the 80s and know the historical ratio. Do some research and quit making up lies. Silver is headed to $60 and then $100. Physical stockpiles are weak. Think supply and demand in the context of a precarious desperate market. Watch and see.
