In the last few years gold and silver bottomed out around (directly after) Christmas.
The sheeple buy (soon to be) worthless iPhone’s and iPad’s and the elite buys gold and silver.
– Silver To Gain 29% In 2013 – Analysts, Traders And Investors (ZeroHedge, Dec 20, 2012):
Silver will rise as much as 29% to $40.25/oz, from $31.10/oz today, in 2013.
This is based on the median estimate of 49 analysts, traders and investors compiled by Bloomberg.
Global investment through silver backed exchange traded products reached a record 18,854 metric tons in November, or more than nine months of mine output, data compiled by Bloomberg show. Holdings are now valued at about $19.2 billion.
Bullion dealers all over the world report robust demand for silver and there has been a shift in many Asian and Middle Eastern markets from gold to silver – due to silver’s relative cheapness and undervaluation versus gold.
According to Bloomberg, one of Singapore’s largest suppliers of coins and bars to retail investors, says sales tripled since October, part of a global surge in demand for silver that drove holdings to a record.
Silver almost tripled since the end of 2008, lagging behind only platinum in gains for precious metals this year as policy makers from the U.S. to China to Europe pledged more action to boost economies. That’s attracting investors betting that stimulus will stoke inflation and debase currencies. It’s also leading to diversification into silver by some who believe that economic growth will strengthen industrial demand for silver, 53% of which is used in everything from televisions to batteries.
