Default Are Gold and Silver gonna keep going down?

Just checked, gold is at $1482 and silver is at $25.70 an ounce. These have not been this low in two years.

Thoughts on the next year? Time to buy or time to sell?

Do you honestly think the Dollar is going to last much longer when the feds are printing 80billion/month with no plans on stopping?

$1455 a few minutes ago. Looks like a floor at about $1450 for now.

At this level it might be worth selling ammo and buying gold. The later goes up, former gets back to reality, and maybe I can afford shooting again....j/k

Yes I do.

1). Yen. The Japanese will be printing up 1/3rd of their GDP this year. We print less than 7%.

2). Euro is still a cluster you know what.

So what choice does the world have for a currency to move $30 trillion in assets? One choice....US Dollar

Well, you can go ahead and convert those gold/silver into dollars. I'll keep them in precious metals.

Give it a few more days, and see where it goes, if it drops, be prepared to start purchasing.

Yes it will continue to drop. People are starting to get an idea that gold only holds a value because we say it does. If all hell broke loose, I would not trade a roll of T/P for a gold coin let alone a can of food. Gold is a gamble; I am sure a lot of people were wishing that they did not buy gold and rather ammo a year ago (a good example of an item which has value and a use).

Why dont you look at this killer "new" currency named bitcoin too if you like to gamble.

I suspect it will continue to fall unless a major event happens and reverses the course. Currently gold is at $1,437 and smashing through major resistance levels.

I suspect it will bottom out somewhere between $800 and $1,200 for gold and $15 to $20 for silver. But my guess is as good as yours.

The world's financial problems will eventually play out, and then PM's could go on a tear. So I would jump on buying opportunities.

Right now is like trying to catch a falling knife though.

Local coin shop or jewelry stores. They will charge a fee over spot though.

All the local shops within 15 miles are charging the following.

Sell to you
Gold - 0.10oz - spot +7.5%
Gold - 0.25oz - spot +15%

Silver - 1.0oz - spot + $5
Silver - bulk bars - spot

Note: all the coins are in plastic coin cases

Buy from you
If coin is in good condition then spot price

If you buy online, there will be shipping fees, and different purchase fee levels depending on quantity and payment method. Lot of folks on here seem to like http://www.apmex.com/

Based on my calcs, it only pays to buy online when you are buying in bulk as in $1000 or more.

I agree...Gold to $1,200 and Silver to $20...possibly lower over the next month or two. I see a bottom at the end of May early June.

Deflation. Are gold and silver ahead of the markets? Silver off 11% after a 7% hit on Friday. The last time we got hammered like this was '83 and it was 86 before I started buying, I kept buying till 91 then a wife happened. Damn shame I didn't keep buying.

84+ was a decent economy, but this sure doesn't feel like a decent economy on the horizon.

apmex has no industrial silver in stock anymore.

I'm not a fan og buying 'collective' silver, just fine silver. You pay a premium because it's a collectors piece but that does nothing for actual value. I just buy .999 fine bulk silver.

I work in a Jewelry store where most of our money is made in the buying and selling of bullion and coins. He (the owner) has been doing this for 36 years and is convinced Silver will fall to $18. He is undecided on the gold atm. No one can really tell you if it is a good time for you to buy /sell so spread your eggs out, the rollercoaster isn't done IMO .

As the economy gets better metals will drop.

Dave Ramsey would not invest in metals at this time.
