Now that I am back state side and see regular TV instead of AFN I see why there is a sudden resurgence in interest in buying gold and silver. Advertisements. If they are advertising it they are only encouraging you to buy high so the dealers will make a killing off the hoards of gold and silver they bought while it was cheap. If they are advertising it then it is a sellers market meaning its not the time to buy. You should be selling it like I am to all the suckers who obey their television.
