YUP. BOTH ALUMINUM AND COPPER ARE THE GO TO METALS FOR CONDUCTING ELECTRICITY IN ALMOST ANY INDUSTRY. CONSUMER GOODS ELECTRICAL CORDS AND LESS EXPENSIVE EXTENSION CORDS USE ALUMINUM. CONSTRUCTION MAY USE ALUMINUM IN ELECTRICAL PANELS, DEPENDS ON THE CODE.

WHERE CONDUCTIVITY MATTERS WE USE COPPER, IN EVERYTHING. GOLD CONDUCTS BETTER THAN COPPER BUT IS RARELY WORTH THE COST TO USE.

THESE METALS ARE DROPPING IN PRICE BECAUSE DEMAND FROM MANUFACTURERS IS DOWN.

Copper is a better conductor than gold but gold doesn't corrode.

Gold is resistant to corrosion but less conductive than copper. That's why gold is used in high end electronics and connections for IC's.

gunteh 4 points ago +4 / -0

The point still stands, gold hasn’t been tracking inflation at all. Market rate is at 2011 levels. That doesn’t sound like an inflation hedge at all.

Local gold/silver/Coin shop, there's companies like APMEX that you can buy online and have it shipped

1
gunteh 1 point ago +1 / -0

Yeah but profit markup is different from market rate. Don’t tell me the selling price of an oz of pure silver (generic round) is selling for the same price you’re buying.

1
Zskills 1 point ago +1 / -0

Things cost what people are willing to pay for them. Spot price has always been disconnected from physical.

There is something like 50X more SLV than physical silver. That's how they keep the price down: selling metal that doesn't exist. Meanwhile, as they do this, companies like JP Morgan are quietly hoarding physical silver as they keep the price down by selling "paper silver" to the masses. In many cases if you read your contract, you couldn't trade it in for metal even if you wanted to, they can just give you spot price in USD instead.

In other words, 50 people all think they own the same bar of silver but it's sitting in JPM's private vault and they AINT SHARING. Don't be the one holding the bag when the game ends.

Nerdrem1 3 points ago +3 / -0

FelixtheMan 6 points ago +6 / -0

As many here know, spot price often doesn't correlate to physical price on the open market. It takes a long time for physical g and s to drop. That premium the last fee years has been crazy compared to 10 or 15 years ago before the run upnto 40 ppo on silver

1
gunteh 1 point ago +1 / -0

Where are the market rates listed accurately? Seems everywhere you look for spot price they all list the same value.

1
dixond 1 point ago +1 / -0

That's because the spot price for gold and silver is the open market commodity trading value. You won't get actual gold or silver in your hand for that price.

1
gunteh 1 point ago +1 / -0

But isn’t the trading value based on the actual price of gold and silver?

1
dixond 1 point ago +1 / -0

Spot is a theoretical contract value for raw gold or raw silver being delivered straight from a mine. You can't buy that; you're buy (at best) direct from a mint that has processed it; more likely you're buying from a reseller of the mint; or even, a trader downstream from the contracted reseller.

Finally, even ignoring all the markup just in terms of the resellers supply chain, there's the actual value-add of having the gold or silver refined, assayed, and minted in to precise 1oz (or larger, or smaller) bars or coins that provide a semi-verifiable store of exact value that is hard to adulterate. EG, bullion coins with milled edges are hard to shave; so a 1oz stamped bullion coin from a reputable mint is actually likely to be, in fact, 1oz of whatever it purports to be.

All these things mean that you, the retail purchaser, are not going to ever be buying at spot price unless from a distressed seller, and even then, it is likely to be a case of "too good to be true".

Sumarongi 5 points ago +5 / -0

Inflation is always and everywhere a monetary phenomenon. The supply chain breakdowns have been caused by too much money sloshing around in the system over the last two years.

The problem is now that there is a dollar shortage internationally, yet rising CPI domestically. This is Tripins dilemma. We are already in a deflation, but the political pressure on the fed will be to constrict the money supply further.

5
Sumarongi 5 points ago +5 / -0

The Fed has raised rates and will continue to do so until there is a major crash in crypto, equities, real estate , gold, silver, and commodities. In addition they will be running off their balance sheet doing QT next month.

They will do this until the CPI levels off or goes down. There is no incentive for them not to do so until something breaks

1
gunteh 1 point ago +1 / -0

Real question is: are PMs tracking inflation 1-to-1?

If they are not, why are we telling people they’re a hedge against inflation?

More people need to understand this. Trump allowed himself to be backed into a corner because it was his re-election year. You don't reach his level of celebrity without a little vanity, whether it was there already or a result of fame but he wanted to remain as popular as he could. There is no level of popularity he could have reached, the trap was set. The only way out was to become the crushing authoritarian they spent years painting him so it was lose/lose. The saving grace is that people will have spent four years seeing the result of that and slowly waking up. At least I hope.

3
gunteh 3 points ago +3 / -0

Even if we were to take the election results at face value, Trump gained more votes in 2020 then in 2016, so what’s your point? That Trump was forced to accept more votes at the cost of his presidency?

2
ckover9000 2 points ago +2 / -0

I'm not even sure if you're replying to the correct person here. The original point was that trillions were conjured up for covid stimulus under Trump. Those trillions had a direct affect on today's inflation problem. My point was that even though stupid ass Biden has made some dumb shitty decisions and conjured up money to fund a proxy war, causing inflation, the money printed in 2020 is responsible, too. Nobody can say Trump isn't in some way partly responsible for today's inflation. BUT Trump was in a shitty situation being forced to go along with covid bullshit...if he hadn't gone along with stimulus checks he would have been crucified as uncaring, in an election year no less. If he had come out saying what we've been saying all along that covid is bullshit he would have been doubly crucified, people believe their TVs too much to think logically and for themselves. He would have had to crack down on the media, making things worse because even though they were lying through their teeth and knew it they had a Constitutional right to do it, making him an authoritarian and violating his oath. It was a lose/lose situation. I hate to admit it as much as anyone, at least of those that admit it.

But biden's years long gaffe making does help this along immensely. When they put someone in that doesn't have to read every word of a script to get his point across, it becomes even more obvious to others how much the leader is controlled. It also becomes much, much easier to pin the political suicide statements to his name and party.

Years to go bankrupt, but less time to starve to death with manufacturing food crisis.

4
Libertas_Vel_Mors 4 points ago +4 / -0

I can agree to that. It does depend on the metal, though. Silver is relatively low-risk and has a low cost to get into. Mis-timing Silver will cost you maybe a few bucks at the most - especially if you're doing it in low volume, where you're not playing margins anyway.

Platinum, then gold (in that order) carry higher costs/risks because the fluctuations are higher. Timing becomes more important up in those reaches.

Once you get into the exotic stuff (e.g. Rhodium), all bets are off.

5
Litecola2 5 points ago +5 / -0

Agreed! If you're buying actual metal in hand, that's long term. Virtual metal trading isn't a day trade sort of thing, generally speaking. Spez: virtual metal trading should not be a thing at all!

Long term debt at fixed rate is a hedge against inflation. Inflation (in theory) favors the borrower. What I worry about for folks like you is increases in property taxes and environmental regulations. That's how they will steal homes.

Yellen is already calling for a tax on unrealized real estate gains, albeit now its only for people making over 400 million or something like that but we all know that's going to trickle down over time.

Depends on where you live. I pay $2200/mo for a 2 bed apartment. My mortgage on a shitty two bedroom fix up house in a bad area of the same town, at least $2200. Where I live most people pay 40%+ of their incomes on rent.

In your case that was smart but holy cow you must live in the middle of Nebraska or something.

Metals used in production have dropped because producers are sitting on inventory from larger forecasted volumes. Assuming no more major drops, would likely take 6 months to level out.

"From the bottom up" - OK that's a platitude I think we all understand and have heard before.

"and the middle OUT." - Oh shit! He's coming for you and me.

All the gold and silver shills. If it was such a great investment they wouldn’t need to advertise on TV, radios and now even Bongino.

And all old guys on the adverts and the guys like Peter Shiff who own gold companies and predict the sky is falling every year their entire careers. Those guys like the gold and say the rest of us have no idea how things work. I did put money in physical gold recently but that's just to ensure at least some of my money only loses 0,1,2%. People have been saying, "any day now and gold goes to $5000" for a decade at least. Gold isn't an investment. It's supposed to be a great hedge against chaos and it isn't even that any more. Still better have some though.

I have no idea why I have not simply unsubbed from the "Money and Markets" email list. I suppose because they are funny with the constant sky is falling emails over the years. I recall in 2016, they said if Trump won, money would be of no value or some such thing. They also allude to stocks and do not say what just advert for investment companies.

Just a bit ago, got this:

"Stocks Could Crash Tomorrow" I'm like, where have they been?

On MarketWatch Buttigieg said the high prices are caused by Corporations. This was talking about the price of fuel. Democrats have always parroted talking points but here is a great example of why we are in this mess. It's the radical progressives going in 1 direction while the China puppets go another.

So basically everything I need on a daily basis is up and the money I invested in precious metals to defend against inflation is down. Hurray.

My job is like PRIME DAY is going to be a huge success at our meeting.

I said NO ITS NOT! We are in stagflation about to be in a recession, food costs through the roof, gas 4 dollar plus a gallon. Nobody is going to be buying squat.

I got kicked out of meeting for bringing politics into it. 🤔

Yet they have tranny day, BLM support, fake ass Ukraine support and all other things posted up around the building

And they wanna talk about my politics 🤣🤣🤣🤣

Yet the Uniparty elites won’t suffer

Nancy Pelosi salary: $193,400 Nancy Pelosi net worth: $196million

Mitch McConnell salary: $193,400 Mitch McConnell net worth:$54million

Like it or not, they both play for the same team.

Neither party is on your side.

They are on the side of getting themselves rich.

Silver started going down promptly after I bought some. It can be profitable to be able to sell naked shorts, I guess. (I'm just guessing about the naked shorts - I've heard it's a thing in the stock market.)

stratocaster_patriot 3 points ago +3 / -0

Don't take it personally. I hought metals to hedge, I bought commodities, I shorted markets, I bought energy, silver, Bitcoin, crypto, defi. Everything out there, I bought a little and every stinking bit of is is down 20-80%. ALL OF IT. There just isn't anywhere to hide. Stinking cash in a mattress is your best financial move in 2022 if you can fucking believe that.

Yup, the real inflation is food and fuel, the cost of movie tickets shouldn't be included in the index.

So people saving gold and silver lost 15% of their investment. Wonderful.

3
stratocaster_patriot 3 points ago +3 / -0

No because it's not an investment. What we lost is 15% of our insurance. Wrap your head around how bad it is when you leave the market for insurance and the insurance promptly crashes even though everyone is buying.

Pretty much how I lost a ton of money last year, I saw the inflation coming a mile off, so I invested in "Inflation resistant stuff" and it all tanked.

2
stratocaster_patriot 2 points ago +2 / -0

Same here. And the guys who push crypto are still telling everyone to buy this dip lol. But I even bought gold, shorts, short of bonds, bitcoin, you name it. All crashed, some as much as 85%. Cash losing 8% is this decades safe haven. Unbelievable.

They quote a broad based metals index that doesn't explain the situation correctly. It's misleading because silver went down Gold went up. Why don't they just tell the Fucking Truth, instead they trick my friends !!!
