With these recent hard times, it's always good to save. With every bit of earnings that one receives, a portion of it should always go to savings and investments. And what other better investment there is, where there is no loss nor depreciation, but in precious metals a.k.a. gold and silver.
With the markets very unpredictable when even the biggest companies have a possibility of crashing, wise individuals buy silver bullion as investments to avoid the effects of the volatile market. Rather that put all their money in just one basket, it is always good to diversify. And one of the oldest and safest form and method of investment is in investing in gold.
Our forefathers have done it and we should definitely learn from them.
