Solari Update
"Any future defense secretary who advises the president to again send a big American land army into Asia or into the Middle East or Africa should have his head examined."

The Solari Report

I am headed over to middle Tennessee to join Franklin Sanders for our Precious Metals Market Report this Thursday evening.

The silver and gold markets continue to be strong - with silver and gold reaching new nominal highs this last week. Franklin and I want to discuss what is supporting the continued rise. Note that last week in the 1st Quarter Wrap-up, I increased the odds of a 2008 type meltdown for my economic scenarios for 2011. Developments in Japan and the Middle East combined with the continued fall of the dollar all signal continuing trouble.

Franklin and I will cover the signs that have traditionally indicated that a price correction is likely to help you monitor market developments as we approach the Summer - the period during the year when precious metals prices tend to be the weakest.

We will also review the pros and cons of shifting to gold, given the continuing decline in the gold-silver ratio. Now is a time to consider silver to gold swaps, particularly for holdings that are not subject to taxes or can be sheltered by available tax loss carry forwards.

I have gotten an increased number of questions about legal and regulatory issues related to purchasing, trading and transacting with coins, which I want to address. Just remember - it is critical that you look to your tax professional or counsel for legal and tax expertise.
