I bought a bunch of silver recently, ok, not a bunch, but some. I bought it over gold because I've always heard it has industrial uses, where as gold not so much. But the silver has gone down on me. So here is my question - what metals do you like long term? Especially given the large inflation that will come soon (if its not here now). Maybe rank them? I posted this in the ETF section as it seemed the best place, especially given that I will probably buy ETFs rather than futures and what not. P.S. - second question - are the miners better long term bets due to contango related erosion over time associated with holding the metals themselves (directly or indirectly through an ETF or other fund and what not)? Thanks!!!
