PostSubject: Who's buying?   Sat Nov 19, 2016 10:40 am

Metals are getting pummeled! Currently, silver is in the mid-$16 range and gold is falling toward it's next support level at $1200. I'm toying with buying a little silver now and watching over the next few days to see what happens. My current average price per ounce is approximately $20, so I'm safe buying now. My only doubts is that it might fall another couple of bucks and I'd miss out on a better deal later if I buy now. I know... I know... "You can't catch a falling knife." Stern

My other problem is, I want to see where gold goes. If it breaks through $1200, it's a long fall from there. If the dollar continues on it's current path and the market stays strong, I think it's reasonable to assume that gold will break through $1200. Of course, I'm an amateur that doesn't know his head from a hole in the ground, so I have no idea what to do.

imho, gold will hold above 1200, silver is a different animal, sometimes it holds while gold falls, other times, it falls with it

due to money restraints, no buying right now, but would add silver if I could

buying other metals, lead, steel, brass....

My average cost for silver is slightly under $16. It still needs to fall some more for me to buy but, like Cave, I've got some money restraints like paying for my son's last two years of college. Hmmm, what to do.....buy silver or send son to college. Son wins.

I've got cash pressures too. Or, more accurately, priority pressures. My income is much lower now than it was last year and the first part of 2016, and my wife finally retired (I've been urging her for years) so her income is about half what it was. Being debt free is a blessing.

I spent some proactive cash on the run up to the election to make sure I was grandfathered in on the 2nd amendment in case of a Clinton win. Now I've developed an interest in custom 80% builds, which cost money and carry a high risk of screw ups - meaning more money for replacement parts. So I've got to decide, do I buy PMs or do I buy the same metals that caveman is buying?

Yeah, all of my "base metals" are in extremely common sizes.

The only silver I’m buying this year are the ATB 5OZ Bullion and P Pucks along with the ASE proof and W from the Mint. Still paying off the heart bill and stuck 5 grand worth of windows in the castle. I did get a chance to sneak in an AR15 and 1K rounds for my birthday in July.

Bought some silver on Friday. Stopped in a local pawn shop (which I stop in regularly) and he had some miscellaneous 1oz rounds of mixed variety (mostly of Christmas issue). He said he'd take spot plus tax. I don't usually like paying tax on bullion, but it was still a good deal ($16.50 plus 9%), so I bought all he had. I guess he buys them at a couple $s below spot.

Been buying mostly silver for 35 years. In my opinion, this is the best buying opportunity that's come along in years. Just my gut feeling.

That's a good deal! I'm probably going to take advantage of the cyber-monday sale at provident, nice 10 ozt bars.

Not anymore. Currently 171.80 at provident, 172.80 at bgacs, Not worth worrying about that small of a price difference.

Congrats on the AR Andy. Aluminum, copper, lead....your still investing in metals!
Picked up a Ruger SR 5.56 this summer too. Haven't even shot it yet. Was too busy glass bedding and working up loads for the deer rifle. Never enough time.
