I haven’t read this entire thread so forgive me if it’s been discussed. Gold and silver seems to be a good hedge during “normal times”. However, I’ve found it difficult to find a buyer when wanting to sell. Is it really worthwhile to have during a SHTF scenario? I’m thinking other items would be a better investment (guns, ammo, food, etc.)
I think would be based on the individual. Some would want gold/silver others would want food,ammo and so forth. As for diversification of say roughly 20% of your portfolio should be precious metals but that's just my two cents.
