We all know those that trade and invest in Gold, Silver and Platinum have strong feelings in one direction or the other. There are those that believe that there is no other asset class worth investing in and those who believe that everything is manipulated.
We continue to share with you what we think of the markets, the manipulation and price action. First, we are always long and owners of the physical metals as long-term investors and don’t ever sell our physical ownership. Whether or not the metals are manipulated, they still go through the price discovery process and have proven overtime like other assets have appreciation.
Second, trading is not investing and being long or short the paper Gold or Silver are part of trading looking for bigger returns in the short term. Trading is separate from investing; your position can be constantly changing based on the current trend.
Just remember what your goals are; trading will create one set of goals while investing another. That is why we are always long-term bulls but short term not afraid of either side.
