Don't get me wrong, I have followed you guys for years and years and I think this is one of the best, if not the best sites for rational investment analysis. (I actually have one of those itulip.com stock certificates you guys used to sell if that tells you how long I have been visiting this site.)
i wondered about that too. ej's argued since the fake-o stock cert days to not trade gold/silver... taxes & fees eat up your profits. how far does silver have to fall to justify the cost of getting out & in again? 30%? 40%? to $30 or $35?
