In the late 70's, instead of selling gold & silver, I got caught up in the mania & kept buying. It turned into like a gambling mania I think. I don't want to go into details, but it ended badly for me. In my defense, the inflation then & very high interest rates had a lot of people freaked out. Along with geo-political factors. BTW, I related some of that on threads here during the last silver spike around 2011. I was always told in no uncertain terms that the PM bubble in the late '70s had nothing to do with the silver spike in 2011-2012. Totally different; silver was not going to go down this time!
