Copper vs. Silver vs. Gold vs. Platinum
 

 
What's the BEST precious metal to invest in right now? I've seen arguments supporting all but there's no real answers out there. I need some of my investment gurus to help me out on this one.

When investing...what's the best to get...outside of 100-1000 oz bars.

Rounds or bars? I've also heard to stay away from silver eagles and silver certificates.

Honestly, physical possession is the best option. Never invest in funds, If you want to stay as close to spot as possible (coininfo.com) stick with 1 oz rounds and bars. Silver is the hot investment right now and has been showing strong support at ~30 a troy oz. Gold is up substantially from last year and is poised to make a big move as well. Platinum is honestly the best buy for your money, not in a LONG time has platinum been below gold.

Thanks. I've got a guy coming to talk to me about silver rounds today. Might go ahead and get a few oz to start off.

Would you stay away from ebay for such purchases?

In my opinion, you are far better off finding a local dealer(coin dealer) than paying the big premiums your finding on ebay. You really shouldn't have to pay more than a dollar over spot for silver. Do some shopping around, may have to do a little driving but check out a couple coin shops and see whos honest.

2 reasons why you should not buy the actual metals themselves.

1. You're going to pay a premium
2. You can't sell them in an instant

You should be looking at ETF's because it's electronic. If you want to dump your positions you can do so in a second with tons of liquidity.

But then again, IMO you shouldn't be investing in metals at all. See my stock market crash thread for info.... there will be a commodity and stock market crash coming IMO.

I'm not looking for anything to sell instantly....looking for something to hold onto for a while. But I'll check that thread out. Thanks.

I see things going the entirely opposite direction, they are releasing another round of easing, the euro is failing, the dollar is ehhhhhhhhhhh at best. Metals are a smart buy, Well see what you have to say about things in a few months 07. :bookmarks this thread to brag later:

If the Euro is falling that means the USD is going up which meanss gold is going down. Your argument doesn't make sense.

QE3 won't make a difference, the USD was up up on the year in 2011 even with easing.

I alreaady have bragging rights in my market crash thread

fed says they wont raise interest rates until 2014, all precious metals have always had a direct correlation with interest rates.

I hope it was before the big drop .. Gold and Silver both got r*ped. % wise Silver was worse.

But Gold gave up all its gains from the past month, it was a pretty huge drop. May have been over done a bit. We could see a dead cat bounce tomorrow

I still think it has more room to drop. Doubt a bounce on that huge volume.
