Silver is sending us an important warning.
Yesterday, the price of silver closed at $20.30, its highest price since July 2014.
Silver is now up 45% this year. That’s nearly eight times better than the S&P 500’s 5.9% return. And it’s almost double gold’s 25% gain this year.
If you’ve been reading the Dispatch, you know silver is rallying for the same reason gold’s taken off. Investors are worried about the economy and financial system.
Like gold, silver is real money. It’s also a safe haven asset that investors buy when they’re nervous.
