Ten Rules for Silver Investing

Questions to David

From TopStocks Members

Q. Hi David

Im an investor with IndoChine Mining who are developing the Mt Kare Gold/Silver project.

They have a JORC 20Million ounces of Silver at 22 Grams Per Ton.

My question is, what would have to occur for the Silver/Gold price ratio will fall from the current 59 to 20-30?


Buying Silver -Keep it simple
Q. what is the simplest or best way of buying physical silver?

Security- when storing silver/gold
Q. I'm keen to buy precious metals - especially silver. However, I'm concerned about security. Even if I use a secure depository, how can I be sure my silver will be there if everything goes belly up?
Also, can I transport silver or gold across National boundaries without having to declare it?
If I store it at my home, I might be putting myself and my family at physical risk.

999 vs 9999
Q. Hi David,

Whats your opinion on 9999 silver vs 999?

Ive heard rumors that the higher grade 9999 is harder to obtain due to high demand from China.

What would would you recommend as a better store of purchasing power?
Cheers in advance.

Debt Ceiling- Consequesces
Q. Hi David, do you think the metals will take a pounding should the debt ceiling be raised in time?

Silver's back near $40
Q. To early to consider a move to $50 in the coming weeks?

Three Month Outlook For Silver
Q. We have Silver positive for futures market today. There is a $US rally that is around the bend, if the EU have bad news, only stopped by China. With this, when do you feel that the SLV (physical) will get into its new band of $50> With the US's spending $3 for every $1 is taken, makes SLV a wealth preservation, and is recognized by the everyday person, Other than the few.

Silver Weightings
Q. In the average portfolio - what weighting of silver vs gold are you comfortable with?

Q. Hi David,
I'm new to silver investing and I am wanting to buy 1000oz of silver. Do you think it would be better to buy from a bullion dealer i.e. Silver Saver or buy the silver ETF on the ASX?

Hedged Vs Unhedged
Q. All other things being equal, would you prefer a company that makes a concerted effort to lock in their future mining production or not? Obviously the price exposure works both ways but if you had to invest in just one company - would it be one that made an effort to hedge at the right price (what they consider the right price to be?)

Thanks David - huge fan of yours and subscribed to your service as well.
