With the iShares Silver Trust (NYSEARCA:SLV) at $16 and change and falling, the precious metal is a pretty unpopular investment right now. But it's actually one of the best buying opportunities in the last 10 years.
Today's financial markets are built on the sand of unsound currencies. Consequently, brokers, banks and investors are wedded to monetary inflation and have lost both the desire and ability to understand gold and properly value it.
The gold price fell to a nine-month low and silver dropped to its lowest level in more than four years as the strengthening dollar and the lack of concern over ongoing geopolitical trouble spots continue to pressure precious metals.
