Silver is cheap

There is an increasingly wide range of methods available to investors wanting to buy silver, or gain exposure to silver price movements. From silver coins to complex structured financial products, the most appropriate way will depend on the requirements and outlook of the individual investor.

My reasoning for my interest in silver is a little unique. I've tried to avoid the cliché stories about silver and silver coins. They're the easy stories to tell you. I'm avoiding them because, quite frankly, the easy stories silver bugs sell you are not the reason I'm buying.

I buy silver because, first of all, I believe that silver is cheap. Also, silver is a financial catastrophe insurance. And we haven't had a financial catastrophe in the U.S. in 25 years. I'm not predicting financial catastrophe, here. I'm simply buying catastrophe insurance, when it's at its cheapest.
