Jim Rogers hedges gold holdings

|By:, SA News Editor

I'd rather buy silver (SLV -3.8%) says Jim Rogers, when asked to choose between precious metals. Gold (GLD -2.1%), he says, is off about 30-35% from its highs while silver is down more like 60%. Rogers is an owner of both, but not adding just yet, and while he's hedged his gold holdings, he hasn't done so for silver because it's already down so far.

"If it goes down more, I hope I'm smart enough to buy."
