Yes I recall the run up in 1979-80 as I traded it many times from $10 to $22 and got off the train. Too much company and hype for me after that. Of all the guys I knew back then that traded it most everyone lost their shirt at some point. Especially those that bought on the way down when they were thinking they were buying dips. Man did they get killed. For years you didn't dare talk about Silver or Gold on a job site or risked getting your head ripped off,lol. A 20 year bear market is a long long time to heal wounds. That's why I get off a trade when the hype starts up big time. I just take a nice big bite out of the apple and let everyone else have the rest with most trades. When everyone gets giddy and that's all you see on the news you know the time is near.
