Bullion Investor's are "Scared". WELCOME 2013 !!

By Sandeep Shah


ello friends, The year 2012 was frustrating, static, chaotic & some what dramatic, but encouraging for the investor's in silver. Silver saw a matured outlook trend. January started with silver prices quoting at 51093, but by the end their was a break out as indicated by us earlier & the rates were 57132. Feb the trend continued to 61000, while March, April & May saw profit booking with the rates settling at 53464. June saw some euphoria in the prices as the silver soared to 56240, but it was short lived as the month ended with a new low of 51871. July was the month of reconcilliation & stability the prices closed at 54025. The trend continued in Aug and by September Silver zoomed to a Year's NEW HIGH of 65444, though profit booking saw the month as it closed at 62819, the trend continued in Oct with the rates dropping to 57587. Where v had encouraged investor's to buy silver and sell at 63000. BINGO !! Nov saw a high of 63981. Their was a trend reversal again and silver saw a low of 57333 on 21st of Dec. As i am drafting this newsletter silver is quoting at 58000 and above. What r the trends of 2013? Why the headlines states Bullion investor'sr "SCARED"? Last Year v saw scare of the "DOOMS DAY" (The world was going to END) on 21/12/12. Nothing happened, life is continuing to live. GOD BLESS US ALL !! Their r 'Rumours' that Gold & Silver prices will see some HUGE LOSSES in the month of JAN 2013, also v have dates specified between 5th & 10th of JAN. The rumours r so strongly believed and felt that people who r novice toward's numismatics & it's culture has started advising not to invest in coinages. I am optimistic. The trends of 2012 is indicative. Worst case scenerio can bring silver down to 51000 & major crash can bring it down to 44000. Gold too can go down in worst case to 27000 & major crash to 23000. If GOD forbid this happens ( I don't think so) this is a great buying opportunity. Here again i would like to share few things with the investor's, collector's and dealer's at large.Last accounting year 2011/2012 we all saw silver HIGH at 75000k and a LOW of 44000k. The numismatic coins remained the same in pricing in fact they appreciated to 10% to 15%.One cannot and should not compare "Physical" silver prices with the prices quoting in "Exchanges"(On line trading) & both with the "Numismatic Coin Culture". In the Exchanges their r contract with margins which can be forwarded and thus has a speculative nature of business added to it. While numismatics is a physical medium of exchange where by, it is difficult to find some specified coins, for eg, 1939 Rupee, if u demand 10 coins the price will escalate immediately. Another most important thing is the coins minted r illustrated, defined and numbered, the coin can only be made as a 'COPY' or "FORGED". Their will always be a vacuum when demand is more against the supply, the best eg is of British India Coins. In the past year or two the rates of certain coinages has hit the roof top and still r continuing to sky rocket. A normal collector is now only dreaming to own this particular coins.

Mudra Numisma

In all i would compel. encourage the investor's to seek this opportunity whenever it comes. My personal view on silver is buoyant. I feel after the month of April 2013 u will see a upward trend in silver with this year showing a new high, 75000. This year certainly we will see a strong silver and competitive prices
