Silver is a volatile stock to hold. It often jumps up and down by more than 30% over the course of a few months. Recently silver has been holding its own, hovering around $38, although it did drop rather precipitously yesterday when the market fell nearly 4%, which is largely due to the Fed's attempt to strengthen the dollar, but with so little confidence in the market people perhaps aren't sure whether even the recently strong values of precious metals will last.
Yet the bubble has not burst. Silver may be down a couple of dollars but it could head back up in coming weeks if more bad economic news is released -- no one knows, and silver doesn't correspond inversely to the stock markets rise or fall.
With all that taken into consideration now may be a good time to start selling silver. Take a look around your house, gather some old jewelry or silverware and sell it! Before silver drops to a paltry $22 per ounce and you wish you had acted when you had the chance. Trust me on this one, sell silver jewelry and reap your reward now. Because even though the world probably won't end in 2012, you can expect some crazy things to happen.
