I am noticing more and more posters that havent been around in a long time. They are suddenly showing up and posting comments...

What made them come back here after years of being away?

Me thinks the action in gold has brought them back. They are sensing a new bull market in the making and are returning to the place where they know they can get the best information while they prepare to re-enter the gold market...whether in the metals directly or in the miners.

Just a guess on my part - but, I think there is some validity to my hypothesis.

We have gone a few years with nary a peep from any outsider - with the exception of a rare stray from time to time...

And all of a sudden we are getting a slow but steady flow of old acquaintances reappearing...

Do you see what I see?

There was a thread here a couple of months ago that made note of that. Can't find it now though. I do think you're on to something.

And recently adding to the appeal, the place must seem a lot more hospitable since we aren't being bombed by a single poster (or bot) hogging fully half of the bandwidth.

It's all good.

Just maybe, and because Ag & Au have been languishing within a narrow trading range due to the "tons" of paper trades, there hasn't been much to excite folks. Today, the market appears to be more dynamic, rousting out those who have just been patiently watching and waiting. Just sayin'.

I noticed their joined dates are 2010 and 2011 which I find suspicious, but then what would I know as I do not have access to the server to satisfy my curiosity.

Maybe they found out the grass isn't greener on the other side of the internet?

I am one that is guilty of returning recently after a long hiatus. I did lurk here from time to time, but honestly I got involved in another hobby. I was spending a lot of time on that hobby's related forums and spending money towards that hobby that normally would have gone towards Ag. I enjoyed my time doing it, but got burnt out and decided to return to what I think is the smarter place to be. It has nothing to do with expecting a run-up in precious metals, it was just time for a change.

There are a couple old names stirring again and stoking the anticipation of a break out. Just 7 bucks more or so on AU ought to trigger a run up. Here's hoping.

Gold and silver action on the upside will happen , eventually.

Living to see that moonshot is directly related to ones age.

Folks that are in their 40’s will have excellent odds in seeing a significant rise in metals.

Folks in their 70’s not so much.

I fall into the range of hoping to see a 10-20% increase in the prices of Au and Ag.

Smoke that hopium if ya got it!...

Im patient but I was hoping for some action before I die


"Action" is precisely what I do NOT want.

Why some folks cannot see that $10,000 gold may sound really nice, but it means that the "Fall Of The Dollar Into Zero Value" has been triggered.

Who the fuck REALLY wants that?

Granted, the status quo is artificial as Kamala Harris' virginity... but while the world still accepts those pieces of paper -- the world still "works".

Exactly. I have said it before - many, including myself, are not adequately prepared for something like this. To me it's like insurance - it's nice to have, but if you have to use it something bad has likely happened.

I think you've spoken Straw.

I even saw some g-po or dpo number plates flashing by.

If anyone sees Silver Sammy, please be vocal about it.

Golden Regards

A-yep.
I just want gold to mirror my damned property taxes.
If it goes to $10,000/oz property taxes will be the least of my worries.

I have it on good authority, the world is ending in 12 or so years,

comrade kotex told me so,

with that being the case, metals need to get a move on

but alas, it would be my luck, metals moonshoot, and within a day a massive meteor hits and redistributes wealth cosmic style

At least the theatre go’rs didn’t have to see the cooked baby scene.
I know the cannibal house scene sold a lot of canned survival food. :-)
Glad I didn’t read that book. I read Blood Meridian and I was convinced McCarthy is demented.

I lurk mostly and post on occasion. My biggest issue is I run the farm and homeschool the boy. It doesn't leave much left of the day for me.
Thanks for dropping by and having your priorities in the proper order.
