FYI, I know that only 3% of people I talk to take action. In other words, of 100 people I talk to, only 3% will buy precious metals--it's consistent and empirical. It's like my big lab experiment to confirm to myself that people will think something's crazy--even if the evidence is all there to suggest otherwise.
In any case, there are no guarantees, and prices will always fluctuate--and we will test the lows--maybe. But the recent extreme negative sentiment was a dream set up for a contrarian investor. Buy when there's blood in the streets. Sell when the world is telling you to flip desert properties.
