Thread: What's going on?

    I remember the high volatility level in silver prices back in the day. If that level of volatility comes back, I wonder what how the premiums would react. Just a thought....

    Still at 4$ plus for 100oz bars. Too "volatile" for me.

    Also look at the buy back price on 100oz bars. The spread has increased a lot, at least in my area.

    If you go by the GSR, absolutely.

    That depends on which GSR you look at. I loosely track the spot GSR vs the retail GSR here -

    As of my last update, the spot GSR was roughly 85 & retail GSR on American Eagles was more like 50. 60ish is my dividing line. Above that, I tend to buy silver. Below that I tend to buy gold.

    I would not buy Silver Eagles right now. Silver Maples are about 6 bucks less & that makes them a maybe in my book. They are still carrying a high premium compared to recent years.

    If you can find silver near spot, I would buy it before the seller changes his mind.

    I've been paying about $22 an ounce lately for world junk silver.

    I avoid that back alley of questionable offerings. I prefer to shop in the sunlight. Risk sometimes brings rewards, but my risk tolerance is not so strong these days. Thank you for the information. It's good to know about options.
