50% of silver demand is industrial demand. ie. silver prices are subject to global economic cycles not just fiat. And the global economy ain't looking to good right now.
I would advise you to buy a condo in the city and RENT IT OUT while at the same time living with your parents.
This way you get rental income and your savings are in REAL ESTATE which is something tangible and prob better than silver.
Given real estate are at such a low level in the US, you are prob gonna be smiling in 5 years.
