Gold or Silver?

what would you invest in? what's the overall difference?

I'm choosing one of the precious metals to watch... but I can't decide which one.

EDIT: lol i realised this thread is ultra old and things have changed a lot since then. lol who woulda thought silver woulda taken off like mad.

i'd go with gold. gold has alwways been a form of wealth and has never been worth 0.

actual physical gold, not gold stocks..

try this place, price is pretty good compared to some others.. only 1% markup

nothing really will be worth zero when it comes to precious metal...... gold is more expensive because its rarer. wealth... lol. anyway

gold has always been one of the best hedge to a fluctuating economy. It grows slow, but it is steady.

If you're looking at long term investment and dont have much else to invest in, gold is a pretty safe bet.

I have two questions regarding silver:

1) Some experts eg:Robert Kiyosaki said that silver is a better investment for three reasons:first,gold is at an all time high so it is unwise to invest in it. second, the world's supply of silver is much more limited compare to gold (he said that the world's supply can run out as early as 2020).third,silver is an industrial commodity eg: they use silver in 90% of electronics. I would like hear my fellow members opinion on that.

2) If I want to invest in silver but do not want to store silver coins/bars in my house/bank. What are some alternative that are avaliable?

I look forward to hear from my fellow members.

^in addition to those two points, silver is much more undervalued than gold right now, so there's lots of potential for it to rise in value

One can invest in Silver stocks like SVM.TO. And ride the wave.

Or buy call options in SVM on the American side.

ETF's, I don't like them.

Ok change of plan, I am never really stocks savvy so I don't feel confident investing in silver stocks. So what are some reputable places that I can get silver coins/bullions in the Lower Mainland? (preferably Richmond/Vancouver)

This is all you need to know about gold. Notice how it fluctuates in cycles, where do you think we are in the current cycle?

If you bought for $510 in 1983, after inflation, how much should your gold be worth? $1127.
What was the average inflation rate during those 27 years? between 2-3%

A normal savings bank account could beat the returns on gold over the last 3 decades. Investing in the short term can be extremely profitable, just make sure you know when to cash out.

I'm going for silver right now since it's undervalued cuz everyone is going crazy for gold. I just bought some physical silver and I hope it's gonna be a good long term investment. And no, I won't tell u where I live, lol.

How much is physical silver? Gold/Silver seems to be good investments if you got extra money to invest into. I really don't know too much since I haven't kept up with the market lately =/.

i would go with jnr's that have gold properties much easier to get something like a 200 - 300% return at a fraction of the cost

as the US dollar is devalued, gold and silver and a smart idea.

This place is great from what I hear. Another site for you gold and silver shoppers to check out and they do have coins. I think "alex" is a coupon code on their site. I listen alot to Alex Jones and Midas is one of his top sponsors.

Been following metals in high detail for several months now. If anyone wants to try short selling in a volatile market, silver ETF (SLV) is a great way to pump & dump. I personally preffer the physical bullion - way less stress.

Lots of Bullionaires are now saying "Gold is Money. Silver is a Commodity". Seeing as Silver now has industrial use, it's hard to argue with this. Silver now has real world applications. Gold is still nothing more than a hoarded material for storing wealth. Silver is more similar to oil, in that it will continue to rise in price due to industrial demand. Double this up with its historic position as a precious metal, and silver becomes a VERY enticing investment.

Both Gold & SIlver are still excellent bullion investments - but for very different reasons now.

If anyone is thinking LONG on metal bullion, it would be a good idea to look into nickel and copper as well.

gold and silver has historically moved in opposite directions so whichever one you chose to buy, short the other.
