    There's plenty of people selling, but it's looking like more and more people aren't buying unless they get spot or super close to it, which can be frustrating as a seller

    I blame Stoic and Fat Penguin :p

    There are always bargains... sometimes you have to be quick, sometimes bargains hang around for a surprisingly long time. It comes in waves.

    You'll know when we are in a dip. You'll be a seller. I don't mean to disrespect and when I mean you, I'm referring to the market. That's why price drops- too many sellers. Weeeeeee

    If you're a serious long term investor .....then you buy on the way up and down.
    If your in it for the short term.....then prescious metals may not be your cup of tea.

    If short term is your aim.....them maybe try the stock market....you'll definately know when the bottom hits ;)

    Agree with above post....there are always bargains popping up on this forum....don't be a gonna, be a buzza if your serious

    You may be able to tell when the market is dropping, and in hindsight see when the market bottommed, but it would be the extreme outlier who picks the bottom (or top) as it happens. The bottom (or top) will not be obvious to most.

    One way of getting what you want is asking.
    If I want to buy I will specifically state what exactly I would want to purchase. The rest is up to stackers.

    Sometimes people hesitant to place any items for sale just because they are not 100% sure if they want to sell and how much to sell.

    Some people like f2f deals cash paid to them in person. Some doesn't have any time for f2f but happy to send you and get paid by bank or PayPal.

    So I am not sure if you did create WTB so people can offer you what they have. You will be surprised to get some bargains. Also it doesn't hurt to ask for a lower price.

    All the best

    To be honest with you mate it was only a bit of harmless trolling, as i noticed the trading thread had slowed right down over the weekend. I think Soprano hit the nail on the head with his post. I'd enjoyed the big sales a bit too much.
    Cheers

    I like to blame Fat Penguin for everything, not just the silver price.
