    Default Silver Investment: Outperformed Gold In This Major Sector

    Precious metals investors may not be aware, but silver investment has seriously outperformed gold in this major market sector. Even though precious metals sentiment and sales are currently lower than they were over the past several years, this is only temporary pause before the market surges as the highly inflated stock market finally cracks and plunges lower.

    When we start to witness a huge correction or crash in the broader stock markets, there only be a few physical assets worth owning to protect wealth. Investors moving into the precious metals at this time, will see their asset values increase significantly. However, silver will likely out perform gold as investors and speculators move into the more undervalued precious metal.

    Actually, we have already witnessed this as physical silver investment versus jewelry demand has outperformed gold in the same market. Let me explain. While industrial demand is the largest consumer of silver in the market, silver jewelry demand has ranked second for quite some time. But, this all changed after the 2008 U.S. Banking Industry and Housing Market collapse.

    For example, global silver jewelry demand in 2007 was 182 million oz (Moz) versus 62 Moz in silver bar and coin demand. Thus, physical silver bar and coin demand was only 34% of world silver jewelry demand:




    However, during the U.S. market meltdown in 2008, physical silver bar and coin investment surged more than three times to 197 Moz, while silver jewelry demand stayed flat at 178 Moz. In just one year (2007 to 200, physical silver investment accounted for 110% of global silver jewelry demand.

    While silver investment demand fluctuated over the next seven years, it hit a record high of 291 Moz in 2015 as investors took advantage of low prices not seen since 2009. As physical silver bar and coin demand reached a new record in 2015, accounting for 128% of global jewelry demand that year.

    Another disingenuous sales pitch not really telling the whole truth.

    Yes Silver investment had it's heyday back in 2015 according to the yearly records, but it was truly overshadowed by the huge volume of sales in the last half of 2015 and the first half of 2016, which collectively was much greater.

    Then the annual records for 2016 which took a substantial dive only shows half of the picture again as the first half of 2016 was the best six months and the last half was the worst six months since 2008, based on US Mint records.

    The total for the last half of 2016 and the first half of 2017 are the lowest 12 month period since 2008 at under 24 million ounces based on US Mint records and the whole year of 2017 is not looking much better.


    Things can always change in a hurry in our market, but it's not looking very promising for this year at all.


    Why the down turn in Silver investment, probably because it's hard to convince new investors to come into a market that has been doing nothing for several years now that even begins to look promising.


    How many old investors can or are willing to keep pouring more money into their stack when they are not sure if and when the market will ever recover from this downturn or take another deep dive with a financial meltdown that would in all probability take Gold and Silver for another wild deep dive just as it did back in 2008 and provide a true investment buying opportunity for those with the cash to buy at that time.

    Of course all the dealers would like to convince everyone that will never happen again, it will only explode to the upside in any financial downturn, which is just what they predicted back in 2007 and they were dead wrong.

    Investors did not jump out of the paper market to pour their money into Gold and Silver, it seemed more like they were selling their Gold and Silver investments to keep their paper investments alive during 2008.

    But it did turn more favorable and actually recover two years later just as the wild ride of 2010 - 2011 started and set off the current six year slump.

    When you look at the following chart, you think man the early 2000's was the time to jump on the Silver train when it was laying in the gutter and it looked like a nice ride up to 2008 and then it provided some great selling opportunities for anyone that was able to cash out at the right time. But the last three years has looked more like the first part of 2008 and the greatest selling period happened to coincide with the lowest dip in that period followed by the worse selling cycle since 2008 after the price flattened out in the summer of 2016.

    It sure wasn't a wise audience waiting for the perfect opportunity, it was the perfect storm on the part of the sales staff selling their stories and the US Mint helping with the supposed shortage of Eagles that everyone needed no matter the cost.

    It was the Great Rope-A-Dope of 2015 that pulled them in and some dealers that never ran out no matter how many they sold or how long the mint stopped shipping any.

    Just for the record, those hot ASE's that people had to have back then for up to around $19 with as much as $8 to $10 in premium are worth $16.75 to $17.75 at most dealers today. About a Dollar more at some dealer than a generic Buffalo round and even less at others. The spot dip isn't the problem, it's that roll me over in the clover premium that will have to be made up in the spot price before these buyers can see the light of day for those ASE's.

    OK, yes my problem is with the manipulating dealers. They say everyone else is the manipulators and everyone can't be trusted and yet they are the first ones to take us to the cleaners the first chance they can manipulate a story line that people will buy into. It's called Rope-A-Dope and they never stop trying.

    What I don't understand is, why are Precious Metal investors so smart to jump on a buying spree when the price of our product is cut in half and yet we are suppose to believe that when the stock market takes a dive everyone runs for cover and no one is taking advantage of the deep dip in those prices.

    Right, we are the only ones that can see a great buying opportunity and those that have trillions bet in the general stock market are blind as a bat when push comes to shove in a crippled market or so the SilverSellers would try to have everyone believe.

    The only reason they keep swearing that Gold and Silver will never take a dive with the general stock market is because they don't want us saving our money for that potential collapse, they need to keep paying their mortgages today, so we need to keep buying today as always.

    Yet they need to keep predicting world ending scenarios of the stock market, the Dollar and everything else to convince the "true" believers that pouring all their money into Gold and Silver is their only Salvation!!!

    Call me a skeptic, but having a half crazed brother that was an Evangelist Minster for decades is enough to know a scare tactic when I see one.

    I don't know if or when the stock market will ever collapse like they keep predicting, so saving up for that rainy day might be a fools waiting game, but if your convinced it's going to, it's something to consider.

    Of course their counter to that waiting game is their argument that it's going to collapse overnight and take the Dollar with it, so our money won't be any good if you don't spend it while you still have the chance.

    Maybe and maybe you know who will be back at the same time for the "true" end of time event is in store for those still around at that magic moment.

    If you feel like the time is right today for your investment Dollars, then buy something today, don't wait for tomorrow or whatever to happen.

    My only recommendation is to not put all your money in the same piggy bank and to keep some cash on hand as it can be the only thing to save your A$$ tomorrow if you need cash in a hurry.

    Nothing like losing your income and having your Gold and Silver in the tank at the same time. Selling your stash at what amounts to wholesale prices for you could be devastating financially.
