There are three things that every soldier or battle head has to fulfill that are critical to the success of his or her mission: The ability to ward off attacks, the ability to offer protection, and the ability to adapt to the changing circumstances on the battle field. Investing in precious metals pretty much requires the same things. You need proper planning, patients, and an ultimate goal to work towards. Balancing all the required elements can be a struggle. You have to be careful not to put too much on one element more than the other.
Let’s look back at silver’s performance in the last couple of years.
Back in 2001, the price of silver was $4.50 an ounce. Today you can buy silver Brisbane at around $30.00 plus a premium of $3 to $6 an ounce. Gold was about $270 back then but today, you can buy gold bullion for about $2,550.
As a means of wealth protection, silver has proven that it can do this better than any stock. The price movements have eclipsed the stock markets. Because Gold and Silver tend to move in the same direction, when gold had its spectaular run in 2020, everyone expected silver to soar and it did, touching the $30 mark at one point.
Precious metals like silver, gold, and platinum provide wealth protection in times of inflation. Right now, this factor is very important. Cash savings accounts yield very low annual interest. When you buy silver bullion you can get the maximum protection and interest.
Unlike most investment assets, silver can be turned into cash quickly and easily. You can sell your silver in Brisbane, and anywhere in the world at a moment’s notice. In fact, the major reason why the price of certain metals decline so easily during economically tough times and crashes like the 2008 financial crisis and the recent 2020 crashes is that they can be sold very easily mostly by heavily margined traders to raise cash.
From the standpoint of liability of loss, there is nothing that can stand between you redeeming silver for cash.
Having said that, you need to ask yourself if you need an investment-grade metal like silver in an allocated fund (Mixed in with other people’s holdings), in storage, or in an ETF that is non-redeemable. To make that decision you need to do a lot of research and choose an investment strategy that is easy for you to understand, one that works for you. And it’s not enough to simply buy silver Brisbane, hold on to it and hope for the best. If you plan to profit from your investments, you cannot sit on the fence. Whilst inflation usually drives the price of silver and other precious metals up, you cannot afford to wait for the inflationary flow to be so powerful, you get caught in the “runoff” of everyone trying to sell their assets all at once.
For now and in the immediate future as the world’s economy and the financial system makes their way through these uncharted place, it would be wise to buy silver Brisbane. Think of it as an economic talisman protecting you from the unseen and unknown future.
