Could be a reaction to a perception that the economy might tank, reducing the need for precious metals.
I have come to the place where I wonder if civilization tanked, if ‘precious metals’ might become something more close to a rock, than a life-buoy.
I’m beginning to believe it’s extremely manipulated. Otherwise, we go over the cliff and metals go down. They reach an agreement and they go down. They raise taxes or lower taxes and metals go down. Then for the same reasons metals go up.
Bulls, Moo Cows, Roosters, Chickens, Piggies, that is where the money is at.
Unfortunately those aren’t the easiest things to own and keep safe/maintain.
Agreed...and you cannot eat a rock.
I don’t know why it is people jump straight from an economy tanking to The Road Warrior. It’s not as if any crisis means total crisis. There might just be a few days where people are willing to accept gold rather than sneaking up behind you and bashing your brains in for the clothes on your back.
