    They've shorted me and the wait times for filling orders is about six to eight weeks for certain products.

    Well, silver demand and silver premiums on physical products have risen sharply since the Apes went on the war path. Is it because of them? Likely so.

    I agree DerryB. They are brazen , candid, and vocal about what they're doing. They say it right to my face. They're not hiding. And they ran me out twice this year. I don't see it stopping for those who stack. Gets in the blood.

    And anyone who has ever kept metal as part of their portfolio usually just juggles some now and again.

    metal is not a good investment for a portfolio these days. It is an excellent insurance policy against the tomfoolery that is making less sound assets better investments.

    While the Apes can increase demand for physical they cannot beat the bullion banks when it comes to paper. Paper sets the base price and will continue to do so. The bullion banks can simply outsmart and outfund them.

    The most entertaining part is going to be watching the Apes being offered spot by the LCS for the stuff they just paid 50% premiums on. Some will probably hold out a few decades so they can attempt to break even. lol

    The whole worlds off its rocker, buy Gold™.

    I've held out for nearly two generations. Sink and/or swim.

    Never dreamt I'd be on the other side of the counter agreeing ( but I am paying that premium to get it too. ). Business , ad nauseum.

    This is interesting to watch. Such things have been attempted before... I am holding, all my metals are pure profit now. Cheers, RickO

    Don't forget, a lot of the reddit apes are not in the US. Premiums/vat/currency valuation are all in play for those folks - spot price be damned.
