Silver Is The New Gold, They Say
I am not really into business kind of person but I was tempted to do a little reading about the so-called one of the precious metals, silver, which has shaken the market recently. Since my childhood, my mind is closed with the idea that gold is the most desirable thing in this world, may it be jewellery or anything that is made from gold. Though silver is the second of it.
I remember back in my high school years, I used to buy a pair of sterling earrings even if I only had one pierce on my left ear, because it’s way less costly than gold. Forward till today, year 2012, so many things have changed. US dollar fluctuates, former unpopular brand now becomes the best brand; talking about apple; US cars are now overtaken by Asian cars in terms of sales, some even say US is no longer the world leader but China, and now they say that silver is the new gold.
Sigh! I asked myself, where have all my sterling earrings gone? 🙂
Everywhere on the internet, you could see a lot of stories about investing silver, pros and cons about buying silver and questions like is silver will really take the lead ahead of gold -blah blah blah. In my own; shall I say low-key, practical and honest stand on that; if only I have a super decent job with a super decent income or if only I’m a successful businessman, why not? Why not buy and invest to silver.
Ugh! But, gold still looks good to everybody. Silver may be useful to so many things, but gold remains ♪♫♫ shining, shimmering splendid♪♫♫. Lol!
