We pay premiums before disaster strikes, hoping that we won’t need to make a claim. A small investment in silver and gold, less than 5% of a portfolio, serves the same purpose. We should buy insurance when the premiums are low and keep the coverage. Just let the protection sit there so you can sleep well at night. The ageless storehouses of gold and silver work when nothing else does, like during the Great Recession. Both precious metals are excellent investments to hedge against unforeseen risks. Silver makes sense because it is cheaper, rises faster than gold when disaster strikes, and is easily divisible into small coins, just in case you need to buy a loaf of bread or an iPhone and paper currency doesn’t work. Gold also belongs in a portfolio, because a small amount goes a long way in settling obligations. But right now silver is a much better bargain. It has declined by more than 65% from its 2011 peak while gold is off by about 30%. Portfolio insurance is cheap today. If you own silver, hold on. If not, buy it.&quot; </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-article-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img src="http://silverseek.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/featured_article/imagefield_default_images/img-default.png" alt="" title="" class="imagecache imagecache-featured_article imagecache-default imagecache-featured_article_default" width="300" height="200" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-link field-field-article-source"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Source:&nbsp;</div> <a href="https://www.marketwatch.com/story/silver-not-gold-is-the-portfolio-insurance-to-buy-now-2019-03-06" target="_blank">Opinion: Silver, not gold, is the portfolio insurance to buy now</a> </div> </div> </div> <p style="box-sizing: inherit; margin: 0px 0px 1.8em; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 18px; vertical-align: baseline; background: 0px 0px #ffffff; color: #333333; font-family: Lato, sans-serif; font-style: normal; font-variant-ligatures: normal; font-variant-caps: normal; font-weight: 400; letter-spacing: normal; orphans: 2; text-align: start; text-indent: 0px; text-transform: none; white-space: normal; widows: 2; word-spacing: 0px; -webkit-text-stroke-width: 0px; text-decoration-style: initial; text-decoration-color: initial;">"Precious metals resemble insurance.</p><div class="field field-type-datestamp field-field-article-published-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Friday, March 8th</span> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://silverseek.com/article/silver-not-gold-portfolio-insurance-buy-now-17597" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Fri, 08 Mar 2019 14:37:53 +0000 admin 17597 at http://silverseek.com What’s the best speculative asset for 2019: silver or Bitcoin? http://silverseek.com/article/what%E2%80%99s-best-speculative-asset-2019-silver-or-bitcoin-17541 <div class="field field-type-text field-field-article-snippet"> <div class="field-label">Snippet:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Silver is a somewhat comparable speculative alternative to Bitcoin.

All told, gold futures prices are on track for a 1.1% weekly gain and up about 7% for the second quarter, according to FactSet data. Meanwhile, silver outpaced its sister metal, with September silver SIU6, +4.55% gaining 65 cents, or 3.5%, at $19.28 an ounce early Friday. Thursday’s close at $18.62 marked the highest settlement since mid-September of 2014. Futures prices are on track for an 8.3% weekly gain—the metal’s best since weekly advance in 15 months.
