drj i must say that this has to me one of the more sobering topics for the pm believer. b/c believe it or not there are people that do not care how good you are they just want your stuff.
my whole philosphy here comes done to this statement. well enough is enough.
just this past month i was able to liquidate 99% of my bullion and it made the downpayment on my dream house. it was not the st8 metal for property exchange i had planned to make when i began to acquire pm's after 08 happenend but it was enough to make the large downpayment and fun coupon payment manageable.
i know horrible idea, the world will end next month and blah blah blah. i am living for today and my family needs a place to stay. done paying the mortgage for someone else. 3.375 30y fixed. i am happy with that.
so now i have no stack. i have an SDP at a local CC where i keep a few coins. now they happen to be very nice slabs, all that could each easily provide a plane ticket to just about anywhere in the world for myself and a family member.
my advice on those holding more than they can carry. continue to monitor the g/s ratio and on ag spikes make trades w/ those dealers you have established relationships with over the years. my theory is they will be more than happy to trade ag for au. always have been in my experiences. my favorite has to be the 1/4 au eagle toobs w/ the 1/10 not far behind. a few 1/10's fit inside a box of american spirit smokes...
thx again drj for your continued contributions here. very much appreciated para eu ~ it is not always easy to do the right thing but it the best thing.
