Every once in a while I switch the TV channel from Fox to CNBC to see what the liberals are saying.  After listening awhile I get a deep sense of hopelessness and foreboding for our country.  The most important thing for the left is giving money to people.  They are happy to see the growth of food stamps, disability payments, housing subsidies, free healthcare and all the other welfare benefits.  They utterly fail to see the damage it is doing to the recipients.  Whole cities that once flourished have deteriorated into rotting eyesores populated with shambling hulks of chemically dependent drones.  These people are no longer employable.  They have become incompetent and helpless and the liberals can’t see that it’s their doing.

Silver looks to be on the verge of a major new upleg, finally emerging from the past couple of years.  This beleaguered precious metal recently bottomed as futures speculators threw in the towel on their extreme shorting.  There is vast room for capital inflows to accelerate dramatically.

Silver has always had a special allure for contrarian investors.  Its price action is exceptionally volatile, with massive rallies erupting from time to time that multiply capital deployed in it.  With silver’s relatively-small market size, it doesn’t take a lot of new investment buying to catapult prices higher.  And shifting sentiment, a powerful self-feeding motivator, fuels the big swings in capital flows that really move silver.

When investors wax bullish on this white metal, its price soars with a fury few other investments can match.  Silver is ready to run again, a very exciting prospect given the huge uplegs it is renowned for.  Silver’s fundamentals are quite unique.  Though it is primarily an industrial metal with steady global supply and demand, investment capital can slosh in and out in a big way.  With silver’s prospects looking so incredibly bullish, all investors need to get silver exposure in their portfolios.  Physical silver bars and coins are fine ways to do it.
