Lately, novice investors are far more conscious of the possibility of a bubble looming in any given investment as a result of recent economic times. Everyone knows that the housing bubble had a lot to do with the economic and stock market fiasco that has been the last decade or so.
You’ll notice that a lot of news coverage these days centers on identifying potential bubbles and avoiding them, whether they are bubbles in inflation, bubbles in the stock market or bubbles in the cost of college tuition.
As a result, a lot of people are looking at investing in gold and silver with a wary eye, as the linked article points out. They fear that the next bubble could involve the prices of precious metals, which have grown quickly at times in the last several years.
While it is fair to point out that just as they cannot be 100 percent sure that there will be a bubble in gold and silver, nor can anyone be absolutely certain that the opposite is true. Still, there is a strong case to be made that there is no looming bubble in the precious metals market and that it is prudent to be investing in gold and silver.
