March 27, 2009 – Portfolio diversification has become common in the last few years, especially since people around the world are experiencing instability with their mainstream investment methods. Many wise investors are deciding to purchase silver bullion because it is considered an undervalued metal that has the potential to increase in value exponentially in the next few years as the industrial and investment demand for the metal rises. So far this year, gold has increased in value around 5% while silver has increased in value around 15%, a massive difference considering large losses seen in equities. It’s very important that an investor looking to purchase silver bullion understands the precious metal market completely because lately there have been many external economic factors that have fluctuated spot prices. It’s obvious that one should enter when the market is low and sell when the market is high, but as far as long-term investing is concerned, it’s always recommended to hold onto your bars and coins until their value increases considerably.

The recently lower spot prices are showing that there is some profit-taking mixed with bargain hunting, and the gold spot price currently sits at $923.80 per ounce while the silver spot price currently sits at $13.28 per ounce, both decreasing in value for the trading day. The latest short-term projections are expecting a 25% increase in value by both metals by the middle of the year, so it’s important to take advantage of these recently lower spot prices by deciding to purchase silver bullion and gold before prices go through the roof. Happy investing.
