Gold and Silver prices are on the down swing but do not panic. If you hold precious metals, you are safe. This could be the early stage of a pending period of stagflation. That thing everyone in the conservative media has been talking about. With the stock Market in decline, Commodity trading down, and yet inflation of the Dollar still continues, a real global depression may soon be at hand. This is the time to hold on to your Silver and Gold. It may even be wise to follow this downward trend by stacking even more bullion. Always remember that while the price of Gold and Silver may follow the economy into the dumpster, your precious metals will always have value.
