Final Thoughts:  The Hunt brothers, back in the ’80’s tried to corner the silver market-with help of wealthy Saudi families-artificially driving up the price. Then, the word was out and other brokerage houses told everyone to start buying Treasury bills, and other foreign investments which collapsed the precious metals market(s). Guess what? The then head of the “Federal Reserve,” Paul Volker, “bailed” the brother’s out, and “restructured” their holdings-with our/your money. They (Hunt’s) lost nearly EVERYTHING. Now, when the prices are up, the snake oil comes out…”buy gold” “buy it now” “easy, cheesy, schmeesy money” “protect yourself and your family.” Think back, about 3-4 years ago…”Get approved for an ARM (Adjustable Rate Mortgage)” “easy money” “ARM yourself, protect your family” “cheaper than a conventional loan” Get the picture? What was everyone saying also? “Reverse mortgage” “Live the life you deserve, reverse your mortgage” blah blah blah… How’s that real estate industry doing these days??
Where were ALL the precious metals ads when they (metals) were $350-$500/ounce??? Just wait until “we” fall, the Chinese are going to DUMP ALL their “gold,” then what?? Bank holidays? Cessation of welfare programs? Can you say, “Anarchy”?
It is to be further noted that the Hunt bros. lost their shirts because COMEX changed the rules in that they would not allow any contract to be delivered, you could only buy silver short thus the Government re-set the price way below the bubble inflated price thus wiping out any long term gains.
