Silver Futures - Telling it like it is!

by Maurice

I first began investing in silver about 20 years ago using a margin account. I lost a portion of the investment due to the pattern suggested in this article--my "broker" merely called to let me know he'd sold out my position at a loss due to the market drop. Prior to this, he had mainly emphasized how much profit could be made. I was unprepared for silver's volatility and had not been contacted in time to put additional funds into my account.

Some time later, I invested again--on margin, only to experience another variation of this.
I now invest 100% of the funds involved (no debt!) and have become a relatively "strong hands" investor and generally have physical possession of whatever metal I've purchased. Storage is fairly easy, with a (large) bank deposit box and personal safe as holding areas.
The precious metal markets are so clearly manipulated, but they yet remain still subject to the "trump" card of supply and demand ultimately. As Dr. Lewis (& others) contend, the overall trend will, in time, prove out that supply is much smaller than demand, especially for silver but also for platinum, palladium and gold. Silver is "special" because of its long history as money and that during the past 200 years there was such a vast world-wide inventory of silver that has been greatly reduced because of the need for silver to be a component of so many electrical devices, medical uses, etc., that Dr. Lewis has mentioned in other articles. This phenomena makes silver quite different from gold--there simply is not enough silver to both satisfy investors and the industries that require it as a ingredient in their production of finished goods.

"Well it helps confirm my conviction that silver is far better metal to invest in than gold or any of the other metals because of its monetary, medical, and industrial uses. So it really has a realistic unrecognized potential that I feel the gold bugs overlook. I read and research a lot of different sources and you help me stay balanced in my approach. Thanks for the course and keep up the good work!"
