Silver: Double-Digit Gains This Year, Then "Tulip Mania"

If you want the upside potential of Bitcoin with minimal downside risk, then silver may well be your answer.

The precious metal has offered not just centuries, but millennia of intrinsic monetary and industrial value.

And despite that inherent worth, silver sometimes goes through frenzied buying manias, not unlike Bitcoin's 2017 run-up.

In my view, that same kind of "Tulip Mania" lies ahead for silver investors, only bigger. And while that may not happen in 2018, it almost surely will in the next few years.
