Do you plan on being a net buyer or net seller of coins in 2018?

I figure to sell many more than I buy.

    seller...wait, no...buyer...nope...well, both because every coin I sell I have to buy first, so I guess we will see at the end of the year...All's I know for sure is i'm losing $$$ and there has never been a more fun way to lose $$$ for me...at least since I've been here on Earth ;)

    The market is showing some signs of improving. If that reverses and the previous decline continues, I predict that we will begin to see corporate bankruptcy filing from some dealers. This happened in 1990.

    I've been selling for a year and will continue to sell as long as my markets remain strong.

    Indeed, I hope to increase my selling next year.

    Very good place to be. Dealers have been known to be significantly leveraged. Rising interest rates could turn things ugly.

    I can only pray that interest rates go up. They have been at historical lows for what seems forever. Interest rates have only one way to go.....up

    These interest rates have been terrible for retirees who are living on the edge and take risks connected with the stock market. I'm not one of those people, but I understand what they are facing.

    Practically no Americans now living have realistic ideas on how to play a deflationary environment, so that's probably the next turn of the screw - not that that is the final chapter, not by any means.

    Likely a net seller. Maybe 1 out of 10 coins/medals I buy is a "keeper", something I don't lose interest in, or have any thoughts of selling.

    I don't understand. There are inflation adjusted T-bills that retirees can invest in that will hold up against inflation. Unless exceptionally wealthy, most investment planners don't recommend riskier investments anyway at that age.
