i just buy in the dips. if you buy all at one price your ganna take a hit sooner or later. if you are like me and have it from when it was $4 a oz all the way up to todays prices your better off if your just trying to make money. i couldn't care less about amking money. i just want it in hand in case i need it. i figure the way i've always done it is pretty safe. i buy 4 oz's of silver out of every pay check and just sit it back. i buy maybe 8 oz's of gold a year. been doing so for over 20 years. if it goes back to $4 a oz(i don't ever see that happening, but if it did) i would still be making money on it if that was what i was out to do.
i have well over 1000 90% dimes as well. i just buy the dimes. no nickels,quarters,half dollars or dollars. just dimes to make change with if the barter systme ever happens.
trying to make profit on silver and gold isn't what i want to do. i just want a nice stock pile of it so my own reasons.
