Silver is up almost 3% today to a record 30 year high of $31.80. I bought most of mine when it was around $16 per ounce. Hope the pundits are correct in their prediction that it will go up to fifty bucks this year. Palladium is another metal that has taken off like a rocket gaining almost a 100% in the last year. With inflation starting to rise and Uncle Ben shooting money out of his helicopter, I see the commodity market (metals, energy and agriculture products) going up and up.
