"There are a number of related class action lawsuits, all suppressed by the government, and they never go anywhere. The only exception is when the Justice Dept gets involved, but that only results in a tax on the banks (aka wrist-slap fine)."
I bought silver back in January of 2011 and will hold until the day I die; it will pay to plant me. LOL. In the meantime it did not take me long to realize the total control of the metal, never going below 13.50 and never going much above 27.00. When people try to sell John Q Public these metals they are just in it for the 10% in and the 10% out. The banksters make a killing at the fools expense.
