by Allen Alper. and Jason Clements
Jon Nadler, Senior Metals Analyst, Kitco Bullion Dealers, is bearish on silver prices. In his talk at the San Francisco Hard Assets Investment Conference, he provided lots of data to back up his position. Mr. Nadler applied the basic laws of supply and demand mentioning that a decrease in demand for silver and a current surplus points to a decrease in price. He’s not totally against silver though; he just says if you do invest in silver, “Do it in addition to a core position in gold.”

by Allen Alper. and Aaron Hoos
