I understand the Fed is once again hosing up the economy (not just the U.S. this time either, but the entire world is counting on it obviously). So, once they start 'tapering' every country's economy will take the pain. That's what being #1 is for! So, question I have is, if world economies will suffer from this, shouldn't/wouldn't investors be looking towards the "flight to safety" investments? Secondly, Silver is NOT a safety plan all that much. Gold, yes, (can't do a whole lot with it) but, silver is more than 75% play on how the top world's economies are doing. Seems to me (from what I've been reading) China is doing a lot better than it was 6 months ago and so is the U.S. The 'tapering' affect is already been factored in anyway. Same goes for copper. The Chinese are loving this drop in silver and copper so they can buy it up cheap in a couple of months. Mark my words please!
