Hi guys I'm new to stacking... well i haven' started stacking yet. I guess I'm one of the SHTF'ers, but i have no idea when that will be. I am just a mere furniture salesman and don't have a lot to invest so i will just start off with buying a 1oz coin each week and a 10oz bar when i have the money. My attitude is... 1oz is better than 0oz if the FIAT collapses. If the sh!t dosen't hit the fan then i'll wait til the gold/silver ratio drops enough and i'll migrate over to gold, and if the pm/real estate ratio drops enough i'll migrate again. My stacking goals are simple... buy 1oz.... and then aim for 100oz... i'll set new goals once i get there. I have read a fair few of the posts in this forum and have learn't a fair bit and im sure my learning curve will be vertical for a while yet. I appreciate everyone's willingness to share information and ideas on this forum and i look forward to learning and growing stacks with every one. i am in the truest sense, a newbie, so i hope you all have patience with me because i'm sure i will ask some newbie questions. Mark P.S. I have listened to the audio version of mike maloney's book, but intend to buy the real book soon.
