Why Buy Silver? 10 Reasons to Invest in Silver Now (w/Charts)
While the ISDA shares the same beliefs and sentiments of Mr. Maloney concerning the current standing of where the Global Economy and Fiat Currency status is today...it is important to note that our ideology for surviving what's coming next pursuant to where you are holding your nest eggs, and the preservation of their accessibility to yourself, as well as simultaneously maintaining a sustainable CASH FLOW and intrinsic value of that cash flow for you, your family and community, we digress from a mere buy and hold strategy.
At the ISDA, we feel that it is important for a Community of Like Minded People to come together, in support of one another in times of crisis. The jurisdictional security of the Sovereign State afforded to the domicile of ISDA Assets held in a Community Stabilization Fund is just the beginning of our resolve to surviving an economic depression more severe than mankind has experienced before.
Is silver a good investment? Why should someone buy it?
It’s natural and even prudent for an investor to wonder if a particular asset is a good investment or not. That’s especially true for silver, since it’s such a small market and doesn’t carry the same gravitas as gold.
But at this point in history, there are compelling reasons to add physical silver to your portfolio (and only one is because the price will rise). Here the top 10 reasons why every investor should buy some silver bullion…
#1 Silver is Real Money
Silver may not be part of our currency, but it is still money. In fact, silver, along with gold, is the ultimate form of money, because it can’t be created out of thin air (and thus depreciated) like paper or digital forms.
And by real money, we do mean physical silver—not ETFs or certificates or futures contracts. Those are paper investments, which don’t carry the same benefits you’ll find in this report.
Physical silver is a store of value, just like gold. Here’s why.
No counterparty risk. If you hold physical silver, you don’t need another party to make good on a contract or promise. This is not the case with stocks or bonds or virtually any other investment.
Never been defaulted on. If you own physical silver, you have no default risk. Not so for almost any other investment you make.
Long-term use as money. A scan of monetary history shows that silver has been used in coinage more often than gold!
As Mike Maloney says in his best-seller, Guide to Investing in Gold and Silver, “Gold and silver have revalued themselves throughout the centuries and called on fiat paper to account for itself.”
Owning some physical silver provides you with a real asset that has served as money for literally thousands of years.
#2 Physical Silver is a Hard Asset
Of all the investments you own, how many can you hold in your hand?
In a world of paper profits, digital trading, and currency creation, physical silver stands in contrast as one of few assets that you can carry in your pocket anywhere you go, even another country. And it can be as private and confidential as you want.
Physical silver is also a tangible hedge against all forms of hacking and cybercrime. There’s no “erasing” a silver Eagle coin, for example, but that can certainly happen to a digital asset:
#3 Silver is Cheap
What if I said you could buy a hard asset at 1/70th the price of gold—and it would protect you just as well against crisis?
That’s what you get with silver! It is much more affordable for the average investor, and yet as a precious metal will help maintain your standard of living as good as gold.
If you can’t afford to buy a full ounce of gold, silver can be your ticket to holding some precious metals.
This is also true for gift-giving. Don’t want to spend over a $1,000 on a present but would like to give a hard asset? Silver just made it more affordable.
#4 Silver is More Practical For Everyday Small Purchases
Silver isn’t just cheaper to buy, but can be more practical when you need to sell.
Maybe someday you don’t want to sell a full ounce of gold to meet a small financial need. Enter silver. Since it frequently comes in smaller denominations than gold, you can sell only what you want or need at the time.
Every investor should have some silver around for this very reason.
Keep in mind that silver bullion can be sold virtually anywhere in the world.
#5 Silver Outperforms Gold In Bull Markets
Silver is a very small market—so small, in fact, that a little money moving into or out of the industry can impact the price to a much greater degree than other assets (including gold).
This greater volatility means that in bear markets, silver falls more than gold. But in bull markets, silver will soar much further and faster than gold.
Here are couple good examples… check out how much more silver gained than gold in the two biggest precious metals bull markets in the modern era:
Gain from 1970 low to 1980 high Gain from 2008 low to 2011 high
Gold 2,328% 166%
Silver 3,105% 448%
You might say silver is gold on steroids!
