I believe shortages result because of price fixing. The inverse senario (supply having a greater determinant affect on price) would only concern the price fixers if there didn't exist any mitigation controls over silver production as well (think OPEC.) In other words, I believe the price fixers in addition to direct price control also have somewhat of a lever on the production side as well.Shortage or not, silver as an element is in finite supply with no way to create more. Compare that to fiat paper currency that can be printed and devalued to infinity.Which would you want your money in?
MAKE SURE YOU GET PHYSICAL SILVER IN YOUR OWN POSSESSION. Don't Buy SLV, or Futures or Pooled Accounts or any other BS paper silver product .Remember anything on paper is worth the paper it is written on. Go Long Stay long the bull market have even started yet
