I'm considering buying some silver as an investment as apparently its low right now and basically I want to invest my cash somewhere where it may stand a chance of seeing growth

Anyone else investing cash in silver? any tips ? I'm not looking for anything risky just something that will give me a return as its a big chunk of my safety net I'll be putting into this its just I don't fancy leaving the cash in the bank and watch it vanish

The stock market goes up and down in the short term, but it always goes up in the long term.

Yep and same is for overall debt, it goes up/down in the short term but it always goes up in the long term; simply because it's created out of thin air. So what that tells you for the real value of stock market?

Above all is what one produces and how useful is a product or service for a community at a given time. Certain commodities may become extremely important at one time and then irrelevant at other times. What's your motivation for investing in silver or other precious metals other than a legacy or culture which of course could be perceived differently in the long term. As far I understand, there is no ROI guarantee.

Whole nother question. Once upon a time the value of a company's stock reflected how well the company was doing in real life. Today the value of a company's stock reflects the value of a company's stock. Precious metals will always have some intrinsic value, though not as much as people think.

And then there was alumin(i)um...

I don't quite follow. And then why the stock price went up right after you bought stock? Did the company performed better right then? Or performed worse when you sold stock and the price dropped? Because I don't recall a time when the value of stock stayed the same after buying/selling it. To that extend I think they're the same with what is going on today. What's different perhaps is back then, the value of the company changed for whatever reason and its stock reflected that change (usually), while today that change is manipulated almost always.

I also don't see why its another question. The OP wants to buy silver and I don't think he meant via jewelry or physical metal because rather he means equities. That's a bit different than when you are say a goldsmith and you already have a plan how to utilize what you buy - apparently a bad investment right now for them.
