The white metal has soared 86% to $19.50since the beginning of the year, compared to a more modest 56% move forthe barbaric relic, an outperformance of almost two to one. I have beena raging bull on silver all year, and on May 7, grabbed you by thelapels and shook you senseless if you didn’t buy at $12.70 (click herefor earlier report ).
