Long term buyer and holder of silver. I still have silver from when it used to be the actual US money- when money had intrinsic value. Accumulating physical silver is always a wise investment. Began investing and started charting on paper and calculating RSI and Stochastics on paper by hand.in the late 1980's (hey, an IBM XT computer cost $5000 back then). On Gold: it's not that I am such a die-hard gold bug, it's more that I'm a big government and Federal Reserve pessimist and realist. The 10 cent candy bars I used to buy after school in 1961 when I was 10 now cost about $1.50. I have lived through the 90% decline of the Dollar. Thank's to the Federal Reserve. No accident: that's how they plan it.
