Silver - The Best Investment for 2012
Why Silver is going to be the Best Investment for 2012
You may have noticed the huge profits people have been making from gold and silver in 2011. As of late, the huge gains that were made throughout the year dropped significantly due to several reasons that I don't need to get into here as most of you don't care or need to know those reasons. What you do need to know though is that because of these recent losses, the price of silver specifically right now is at a great discount that you should not allow yourself to miss out on!
As of today, the price of gold is currently at $1614/oz, which is up 15% from last year at $1384/oz, and down 15% from the 2011 high of $1896/oz.
The price of silver now has gone down all the way to $29.58/oz, which is about even from this time last year at $29.22/oz, but it is down almost 40% from the 2011 high of $48.70/oz. That means it could very easily bounce back up and yield you a 40% or greater profit within the next 1-2 years(as most forecasters are easily predicting).
This is why we like silver so much. The barrier for entry is so low($30/ounce) that anyone can purchase it and it is available right now at such a huge discount that you would be foolish not to purchase as much as possible while the price is this low. Don't take my word for it though, go ahead and search online and I doubt you will find anyone that would say that purchasing silver is a bad idea. I definitely recommend that you take a look at some of these articles here to help strengthen the idea I am already trying to convey: http://www.straightsilver.com/updates/
With the majority of the world's currencies and economies declining right now, the only safe place to keep your money is in precious metals like gold and silver that have withstood the test of time and have been accepted forms of currency throughout the history of mankind.
Right now is the time to buy. Anything below $35/oz for silver is a great buy in my opinion so I hope this article at least raises your interest if it wasn't already raised, because this is one of the safest and also profitable forms of investing around right now.
If you do your research, you really have nothing to lose and everything to gain from the purchase of silver and I hope that you do look towards diversifying your assets and purchasing silver or other precious metals sooner rather than later, because the world is becoming a very uncertain place and you need to keep yourself secure in times like these.
