I think this is a strong contender for stupidest statement by a precious metals blogger/commentator so far this year:
Jeffrey Lewis: "One of the main advantages of buying silver versus more costly precious metals like gold and platinum is that silver’s relative cheapness allows you to buy more metal for the money."
How does this make any sense as an investment rationale - buy it because you get more "stuff" to look at? On that basis copper is even better than silver.
I challenge anyone to find something more nonesensical or WTF (conspriacy theories excluded) in the precious metal blogosphere.
