Oh well, Guess he doesn't know how to pick em. But what he said still made sense to me... we never get to hear what the little guys say... only the big guys that know how to rip us off and wear their own kind of masks.

I don't "play" the stock market, its just too easy to lose your shirt. However, buying silver at $30 US per ounce and selling it in 6 months At $50 isn't rocket science.

Anyone who thinks silver will remain at or below $30 is out of touch with reality. If the price goes down before it goes up, or if it takes a little longer before it goes up, you just don't sell it... its a no-brainer.

Example, you buy 500 ounces for $15000 and sell for $25000 in a few months. Thats a profit of 65%, when the bank is offering 1.5-2.5%

I'm going to hypothetically buy 1000 ounces of silver today @ $30 and see where it is in January/February.

Nothing hypothetical here: In Feb of 2009 I purchased 3,000 dollars worth of silver. It was at 17.65 an ounce on that day.... my only regret is that I did not purchase it in 2008 when I was thinking about it as it was 9.80 an ounce. Probably if I lived closer to a dealer I would have bought and sold several times by now. I wont do it through the mail.
