I buy Commodities when their price collapses

Jim Rogers: That’s some of it. The grace margin climbed just a few times for several metals that you know. That’s certainly part of it. But there are many reasons. Silver and gold - you know, gold has gone up ten years in a row. That’s extremely unusual in any financial asset. Silver skyrocketed here in the last several months. So yeah, it’s a combination of things - financial panic, market re-quals, etcetera. But I don’t see this as any problem. It’s good for markets. Back in the 1970s gold went up 600% and then gold went down 50%, scared everybody’s socks off. A lot of people gave up on gold. And then as soon as they gave up and sold, gold turned around and went up 850%. That’s not a typo - 850%. So this is nothing unusual. Oil has gone down almost 50% three times since the bull market started in 1999. I don’t pay too much attention to these things. I try to be smart enough to buy when it collapses some. - in Goldseek Radio
