Pay for wedding and pay down debt. Once prices go back down I hope to reload and dump once price goes back up.

I'm buying if I can find silver near or less than spot. Wouldn't mind jumping on some gold fracs if the price/trade is right.

I'm waiting for the lunar tigers to come in...otherwise, holding and bag searching. I'd be open to trade if its right.

I'm mostly holding unless I can find silver for around $15 as I think it will come back down to about this area. I have no need to sell and don't expect to for about 20 years or so.

I'm on hold for right now since I don't have much extra cash, but if I get some 90% in at 10x I'll buy and continue to wait it out.

I'm just not convinced we've seen the end of this upward trend so I'm hanging on to what I have.

*EDIT* Not that I'd ever sell off completely but I do what I can to lower my cost basis per ounce during these wild market swings. My goal has never been to cash out.

Mostly buying frac. gold coins when i can get a decent deal. Also a little silver here and there. Not selling anything now, nor do i intend to in the near term. Sold a 1 oz. gold bar the other day, but that was for a friend, not out of my stack.

Rearranging:

I have sold almost all of my .999 and bought gold fractionals and good or better morgan/peace dollars. I did this the last time we ran up to $21 and it worked out well for me. The premium on silver dollars really takes a hit as spot moves up...but it held pretty high last time we went back to $9.

Recently had some good deals on AU and AG so adding to my stack.

I am not looking to sell off anytime soon. Will trade if the deal is fair / decent.

I'm holding but If I run across any good deals on gold/silver I'm buying. Mostly been buying 90% lately as that is all I can find for under $16 an ounce. Saving up for a drop (if it comes) so I can buy a bunch of SAEs and for the mint to start producing 2009 gold buffalos (if they do).

I'm buying things such as particular slabbed SAEs I need, and anything I may find below spot.

I'm also seeking to trade or sell things I no longer have an interest in.

Same here. I love the cashback because it makes buying below spot POSSIBLE! before that I had to find huge dealers with books upon books of 90% in order to buy below spot. Many dealers have smartned up and no longer write the price on the cardboard flips :(

I think trading Silver for gold right now is a good move being that the GSR has tightened up from 70+ (if I remember correctly) to about +/- 55.

Hey Rom,

I believe the raising of interest rates option has passed. Even that won't save the system without first plunging it into the ground. They are caught between a rock and a hard place. Either plunge it down now, or allow it to happen later. I think they're opting to let it happen later and naturally so they can say "We did everything we could" instead of the first option and being blamed for it. That's just my .02 dollars worth.

I sold off a few fractionals to offset the cost of purchasing a 1 ounce gold Pamp Suisse bar. So, I have more gold. Also purchased a few SAE's this week.

I'm holding fire on buying anything right now except premiums, all the gov't issued is way too high at the current spot to buy in my opinion. This is a good time to buy perth stuff, however, that way you don't feel so bad paying the exhorbitant premiums, cuz the gap to spot has closed a bit. Most places just leave the perth stuff at a set price whereas the ase's, maples, phils, and such fluctuate tightly with the market. Spent about 2K too much in the last 2 months on "had to have" stuff, so these high spot's help me catch my breath until the other 2010 stuff starts to drop.

I'm buying at the moment, but will probably hold-off on buying after
this Sunday - Ft. Lauderdale Coin show. 8-)

Last night I picked-up a roll of 90% Washies for 11x face, hard to pass up
that deal. :D
