Silver Investment Opportunity Time is Slipping Away

Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012 Dec 08, 2012 - 07:02 AM GMT

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Commodities

Everything has been distorted by the media.  Humanity may no longer believe that the sun revolves around the earth, but some people still think that they can control nature.

Nevertheless, with all the truly breathtaking science that has resulted in great social progress and technological advancement, the mass distortions in perception caused by propaganda — including illegal, unethical and immoral media intervention — will resolve itself eventually.


Price Managed Asset Classes

Perhaps it is no accident that at the center of these technological advances happens to be the asset classes that are the most managed of all, specifically: oil, precious metals and currencies.

Based on its obvious uses for energy and petroleum products, oil underpins just about every recent technological advance. For their part, currencies are caught up in a global race to debase their value, as central banks and treasuries around the world attempt to manage unprecedented levels of national debt.

Gold remains solid and incorruptible as the constant hard monetary check and secure asset, while silver seems more like a chameleon. Silver is both a key to technological prowess and advancement, but it has never completely lost its role alongside gold as an investment asset.

These precious metals will eventually rally as market pressures overcome the manipulation, although the timing of this rally remains the big issue. As much as market forecasting has improved over the years, humans still cannot make consistently accurate market predictions in any time frame.

The price management seen in these asset classes arises from the fact that the market still uses a false and debased yardstick for measuring wealth in the form of the U.S. Dollar.

Most investors continue to ignore the precious metals, and opt instead to cling to the status quo investment classes of stocks and bonds. The more such markets attract reasonable valuation questions, the tighter the grip the manipulators need to maintain.

The Lesser of Evils

On the surface, investing in precious metals appears relatively simple, and yet as soon as one comes to terms with the many good reasons for doing this, the decisions involved become quite complicated — almost to the point of absurdity.

Suddenly, you have an "investment" that must be stored, could be confiscated or stolen, and comes in a variety of forms, along with a slew of largely debatable reasons for holding each form. In summary, this complexity tends to leave almost every metals investor with a feeling of initial remorse, just as they start to experience the true volatility of precious metal prices.

Sadly, most people simply cannot come to terms with all of this, or they will, but only when it is too late, and they have already missed the big market moves. Currently, the perception on the surface, which is regularly reinforced by the status quo, is that there is all the time left in the world to buy metals.

Nevertheless, the return to some semblance of balance — where the law of supply and demand is finally allowed to manifest itself in precious metals market pricing — will likely occur in a violent transition that is nothing like anything anyone has ever witnessed or could even imagine. 

Do not plan on being able to just hop aboard the trend in such a dramatic situation.
