The window is closing on $30.00 silver. If you had planned to put some money in gold or silver, you are rapidly running out of time to get in at these prices. I'm pretty sure we will soon be looking back at this period as the "good old days". Anything you have in paper assets (Checking, Savings, Stocks, Bonds, 401K, Cash...) will be worth less and less over the coming months. I'm not sure where the value of metals will end up, but they will always be worth something. Federal Reserve Notes won't even make very good toilet paper in the near future. Just my opinion, but look into it for yourself - time is getting short.
