Platinum & Palladium vs. Silver and Gold?Submitted by RogueBeekeeper on Fri, 08/22/2014 - 00:37
So I watched the "The Hidden Secrets of Money" on youtube series and read at least a hundred articles and a book or two on how silver and gold are real money. I even went out and invested a large portions of my savings in precious metals.
Yesterday I went out and bought myself my first ounce of Platinum. The store I usually go to was sold out. I was able to find just one eagle ounce out of the four places that I called in the Salt Lake area.
Silver and Gold will inevitably go up due to inflation, dollar collapse, whatever. But what about Platinum and Palladium? Should I be putting more money into those metals? It seems like the supply is already really tight... here is an article that I found posted a long time ago... What do the experts say? Should these metals have a larger share of my stockpile?
I also came across this article in the MSM about how platinum coins aren't selling compared to gold and silver but then the people in the comments are expressing difficulty in getting them.
