Esteemed economist John Williams from shadowstats.com and Peter Schiff discuss the merits of owning precious metals. Gold and silver as a hedge - as an insurance policy - against the increasingly certain, impending economic apocalypse. Williams cites $7,500 as being the CPIU inflation adjusted actual value of gold TODAY. $436/oz. is cited as the CPIU inflation adjusted value of Silver. Both agree the sky is the limit on precious metals as the Fed monetizes debt and the system as we know it begins to fall apart at the seams. God help us all. Buy silver and gold TODAY as some measure of protection for you and your family.
Investment guru Marc Faber is a zealot when it comes to promoting the cause of gold. The publisher of the celebrated newsletter Gloom, Boom and Doom is at the same time rubbishing the dollar and currencies of countries which go on printing notes in attempts to stimulate their economies. The contrarian investor often referred to as Doctor Doom has got another equally controversial investor Jim Rogers to keep company in celebration of gold at the expense of currencies.
So is not Faber happy that his favorite precious metal gold has once again moved beyond the $1,200 an ounce resistance level after moving sideways for a while? What should be a cause of particular delight for Faber and Rogers is that their unbounded enthusiasm to make the public, going beyond the high networth individuals to see the virtues of regularly adding gold to the investment portfolios when the developed economies look wobbly is seeing its denouement.
We in India continue to buy gold mostly in the form of jewelery. Therefore, the Indian consumer demand for gold surging hugely in the first quarter of this year to 193.5 tonnes could not have drawn inspiration from exhortations of Faber and Rogers. The craving for gold jewelery here is so strong that the Indian womenfolk just needed some time to get reconciled to high prices of the precious metal before resuming buying and with some abandon. The World Gold Council says gold jewelery demand in non-Western countries will continue to recover from the first quarter level of 470 tonnes. Read full article
UNBELIEVABLE NEWS: Scotiabank tries everything in its power to prevent an elderly woman suffering from cancer from turning in her paper silver certificates for physical silver. They do not want ANYONE showing up to claim their physical silver. WHY? Becuase it's on the record that banks only have ONE OUNCE of physical silver and gold in their vaults for every 100 ounces of paper claims. Judging by this pathetic story, it may be even worse than 100 to 1. Can you say Ponzi Scheme?

Money manager predicts the price of silver to skyrocket on industrial growth. Stephen Leeb : " Silver is an extremely interesting metal , in addition of being a precious metal it may even have a longer history than gold as a precious metal , and one obviously for its price it is more easy to accumulate for the typical investor ...it is also a remarkable industrial metal , its properties are totally unique : it's the best electrical conductor in the world better than copper , it's the best thermal conductor in the world and because of these unique properties it finds itself in a lot of things you won't suspect ...one thing you look at is how much you are using relatively to how much much silver there is in the ground right now that ratio is ten to one that means that every year we have been mining one tenth of the reserve base of silver that's scary that is frightening , that means that we have too increase this resource dramatically or lese we are just going to run out of silver , and so you asked me for the price of silver ? if I told you a hundred dollars based on all what I am saying right now I do not think in any way you can call me crazy , i mean silver could be an absolute huge huge winner....there is very little of it and we need it for everything...

The price of silver has been notoriously volatile as it can fluctuate between industrial and store of value demands. At times this can cause wide ranging valuations in the market, creating volatility.
Silver often tracks the gold price due to store of value demands, although the ratio can vary. The gold/silver ratio is often analyzed by traders, investors and buyers. In 1792, the gold/silver ratio was fixed by law in the United States at 1:15, which meant that one troy ounce of gold would buy 15 troy ounces of silver; a ratio of 1:15.5 was enacted in France in 1803. The average gold/silver ratio during the 20th century, however, was 1:47. The lower the ratio/number, the more expensive silver is compared to gold. Conversely the higher the ratio/number, the cheaper silver is compared to gold.
