The Kid asked me to post this simple question. He explores the possible reasons and it's impact on the price of silver on his blog. So mosey over there and take a look see. He makes valid points and asks some pertinent questions.
As you know we are bullish long term for Gold and expect Silver to perform as well against the Dollar etc. We are aware of differing opinions and respect them. We want to be as informed as possible in our investments and we will not stick our heads up our own asses just to hear the echo.
That is pretty much the only reason for this blog.
Question everything. Absorb everything. Weigh it and quantify it. Then you have an informed opinion.
