I know, you, Steemian guys used to have more cryptos than precious metals but these shiny things now make a really hot summer on investment sites. It can be the hit of the year.
“Silver instead of gold” – sell your gold mine shares, and buy some silver mines – I told myself the 3 of July 2019, and I also wrote it. I was
daaaaaaamn almost right. In the last 20 days, gold was 0.4 percent down and silver was reborn, jumping 7.5 percent.
The turn in silver I expected is here but the miners are behaving sluggishly. The GDX gold miners ETF is better, 8.8 percent higher since July 3, but the SIL silver miners ETF, despite the sharp rise of silver, only 9.3 percent. OK, also very nice in a so short time. But mines used to climb 2-3 times more than the same metals, so, in reality, they are lagging behind the usual pace.
Short term or long term?
Many investors and analysts are asking: Is this a short rally, or the beginning of a nice, long precious metal bull market? I vote for a long term surge. From the four important precious metals, palladium is rallying for years now and moves near all-time highs. Gold also stays near 6-years high, approximately. Silver, even with this jump, seems to be still very undervalued, only near its one-year top.
This time, platinum seems to be dropped out from rally, staying a lot behind. I would buy it, but I made it already approximately two months ago… See here
My bottom line
I, myself, am a fool. I sold my gold mines and didn’t buy silver mines at the right time. First, I had no time to act. Then, I couldn’t find the right ETF or certificate to do so. I haven’t enough capital to mix my own silver mines shares basket, and the SIL ETF can’t be bought in my country.
I stayed without mines, so later I decided to buy only silver (with some leverage), but relatively late, by 16.41 USD (last Friday). Almost no profit at the time of writing. (I’m sad but patient, I usually invest for months. I have good ideas but I must improve my acting speed and efficiency.)
