If sales for November and December match the levels of 2010, total sales of American Silver Eagle coins for 2011 should… [be] more than 20% above the record breaking sales level of 2010. [Not only that but] with physical demand remaining robust and investors seeking safe-haven investments in the face of the Eurozone debt crisis, I believe we could still see silver break above $50 by year-end or during Q1 of 2012 at the very latest.

Hamlin goes on to say, in part:
Investors appear to be wising up to the manipulation in the silver market as weak hands strengthen [as] evidenced by the fact that some of the strongest sales months during 2011 were during the sharp sell offs. Rather than panic, sell silver positions or move into cash, investors stepped up their purchases of silver eagles coins to take advantage of the depressed prices.
Furthermore, technicals have turned bullish for silver recently after bouncing off support at the bottom line of the trend channel show below. There is very little downside with a huge amount of upside potential, highlighted in the green rectangle below, should silver begin to gap up.
$50 Silver By Year-end
With physical demand remaining robust and investors seeking safe-haven investments in the face of the Eurozone debt crisis, I believe we could still see silver break above $50 by year-end or during Q1 of 2012 at the very latest. I have continued stacking at these severely discounted prices and believe that anything under $50 silver will look cheap in the near future.

While physical bullion in your possession should be secured first and foremost, silver stocks appear to be the better value at the current time…Watch for mining equities to end the year very strongly, marking a return to offering leverage to the advance in their respective underlying metal.
Psychologists tell us that there are five stages of grief over loss of whatever kind, usually death, or breaking up with a loved one, which are: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, acceptance. I’ve applied these to the loss of the dollar, as I see most people today are still stuck in denial, and here’s how to deal with that. Words: 1100
The silver index is still in the “Run” phase of the “Bump-and-Run Reversal Top” pattern which will be followed by a “Dead-Cat Bounce” decline that will drive prices gradually lower. [How much lower? Read on!] Words: 990
The technical situation is ultra-bullish for both gold and gold stocks. Sentiment indicators…continue to show [that] the dollar is poised for a serious decline and the MACD on the gold chart is giving one of the most powerful buy signals in the history of the bull market. The GDX should reach $75 a share by year-end and gold should push to new highs in the $2000 area by January of 2012 [while silver] could possibly be the best investment opportunity available to investors for many years to come!

If you concur with the 159 analysts (see below) that maintain that physical gold is going to go parabolic in price in the next few years to $3,000, $5,000 or even $10,000 or more then you should seriously consider buying physical silver. Why? Because the historical gold:silver ratio is so way out of wack that silver should appreciate much more than gold as it goes parabolic in the years to come. Indeed, silver could easily reach $100 – $200 per troy ounce, maybe even $300 and conceivably in excess of $400 depending on how high gold goes. The aforementioned may be hard to believe but an analysis below of the historical price relationship between silver and gold suggests that such will most likely occur if gold does, indeed, go parabolic.

Oftentimes perception, and not reality, rules the day with the thousands or millions of speculators placing short term bets with assets like silver. These perceptions are particularly strong given that paper players in the silver market often control the price in the short term (6-8 months), since there is so much more paper silver than physical metal out there…Here are five common myths about silver that I bet many speculators still believe are true.

Now that Q4 is underway, investors are scrambling to find the right asset class for this rocky environment. Last quarter wreaked havoc on a number of investments and portfolios alike, as the global economy seems to be on a downward spiral. Given the current environment, various investors have flocked to their favorite safe havens to wait out the storm. Gold is perhaps the most popular safe haven in troubled markets, though its actual use as a metal is relatively low. As such, there has been much speculation over whether or not the metal is overvalued, scaring a number investors out of gold and into another precious metal, silver. Words: 3422
We have a financial system that’s on the edge of a cliff here. People have to be in precious metals if they want to protect themselves. Everyone who’s an investor has money. They have it invested in some paper instrument and when they realise they have a problem with their money in a bank or owning some government note the demand for gold could just be overwhelming! It could be parabolic all of a sudden. Currently, only o.75% of the world’s financial assets are in gold so just imagine what a 5% to 10% interest in gold would mean for its price. On top of that, I believe that silver will get back into a 16:1 ratio to gold in three to five years for sure so that means that silver is going to have a great upside potential. Got gold? Better yet, got silver? Words: 5169
We are at the beginning of a major shift out of paper assets into real assets [and] those that are starting to come to this revelation have no real understanding what they are doing when they are buying gold…[they just want] to get out of paper assets. I bought gold as a gut reaction [but] the more I learned about silver, [however,] the more I realized that silver was the smart decision. [Let me explain.] Words: 2190
