    Well -- I remember in the late '80's when I leveraged everything I had into silver on the Chicago market at $11 and watched it go to $7. My friend, it's never an easy call.

    There's a well established market on those. Friday's Wall Street is in the bottom of the can but I'll check tomorrow -- I think they're quoted.

    I think what you are seeing there is the dollar going into the crapper, a situation that will only contine with our trade deficit and the FEDs unwillingness to raise interest rates because they are scared it will cause the housing market to further deflate as all those ARM loans reset. so one way to hedge against a weak dollar is silver or gold.

    I'll continue my rant...The Chinese are propping up our currency while pegging thiers against it. This makes thier imports LOOK cheeper than they should be on the order of 40%. Once they have it all, they then can start dumping that ONE TRILLION in US currency they hold.

    Yes that is Trillion with a T

    Yeah, I find it freakin scary that the Chicom government could just stop buying/and or dumping and most likely cause a financial meltdown of the US Govt. within a week.
    Someone said last week that China is to the U.S right now financially, what the U.S. was to Great Britian in the 1930s and 1940s.
