Wake me up to Gold and Silver

Wake me up...

It's the old 'frog in a slow boiling pot' trick. The poor old frog doesn't realize he's being boiled alive, slowly, until it's all too late.

Take that analogy and apply it to todays world. If you had been asleep for the past three years and suddenly woke up today, you would probably be in shock as to the state of the world as compared to March, 2008.

We've had market crashes and market rises, countries go bust and countries change regimes. US dollar expansion by the Fed like there's no tomorrow. And house prices, which were supposed to always go up, belly-flopping dramatically.

Maybe its best we all go back to sleep. At least that way the pain and shock is less evident.

Or we could rise to the challenge and take opportunities as they arise. And there are many out there.

Gold and silver continue their long term secular bull-run and give us the opportunity to invest and preserve our wealth as we stop and consider the opportunities ahead.

Precious metals can get us over that initial shock of the realization that QE/Money Printing is stealing our wealth daily and can help us rationally consider our next steps. Allow us to 'splash water on our face' and wake up slowly, have breakfast and read the news without panic.

Are you awake?
