Precious metal investors have long been second-guessing themselves, due to false alarms. Many, many false alarms. They are, quite honestly, shell-shocked. Even the mention of the next “event”, now simply makes them angry, both at those telling them about the importance of the events, and at themselves for “believing this stuff in the first place”.
They feel jaded. They feel foolish. They feel betrayed.
While I totally understand and empathize with those feelings, they’re forgetting to set that anger in the rightful place: right at the feet of the board of directors of the Federal Reserve. They are failing to channel and harness that anger and outrage, and use it for something positive, like stacking.
The thought never occurs to many of them, that if they simply put even a little bit more into gold or silver at 30% and 65% discounts, respectively (from their highs 3 years ago), that their investment cost in those metals would take a dramatic plunge. They fail to see that they could become much stronger hands than they are now. None of that matters to them anymore, they’re tired of “being played”, by their emotions, and by “shysters”.
In fact, for many of them, stacking is now the last thing on their minds. Many are now simply waiting for the next miraculous rally, so that they can mercifully dump those positions at the prices they bought them at. Many will sadly do this too, just as the Bird lands, and the Great Flood washes everything else away.
The Black Swan is real, and it is coming, just don’t bother looking for it.
