i haven't traded silver since 1987 when i got burned . but i have thought about slv below 17 dollars a share . just never done it ...there is always something else like gbtc or uso that seems to distract me away . right now i am in uso and gld
I bought around 70 lbs of silver a couple years ago, not all at once, on a speculative basis. Everything I picked up was in the $14 oz range (under $15). And I still have it in a safe deposit box that I hate even looking at because its so damned heavy. If I ever do anything like that again, I'm definitely going to use SLV. That said, I'm ahead on that speculation... so yeah. I thought, and still believe, that silver is cheap relative to gold. But the silver/gold price ratio has remained quite high. Hmmm...

For weightlifters like Smithers and Kriegsspiel, I’m imagining kettlebells or other weights made of gold and silver. Like what thief is going to run off with those.

I'm thinking more like a Húsafell Stone of silver.
