Déjà Vu: for precious metal investors have we been here before?

The recent drop in the precious metals has not changed my long term outlook for both gold and silver. The current rout reminds me of the financial crisis of 2008 when we told readers much earlier to sell the trading only position of their holdings very near the top of $21 silver. It was a long wait but our indicators kept suggesting lower prices. They finally came in a very dramatic way and silver eventually moved down to below $9.00. We made a call for a bottom at $12.50 that appeared correct only to be proven wrong later. However, looking at buying silver at $12.50 and holding all the way up until May 1, 2011 would have yielded excellent returns.

The question becomes will we see something similar in the precious metals again? Perhaps we can answer a question with a question? Do you really think that in all of recorded monetary history that a fiat currency will trump gold (silver)? Is is possible that the rush to hold any currency that is at the whim of political pressure and a debt burden that cannot be met will actually survive against “real money” that has no counterparty risk and is NOT backed by debt?
