A lot of people are investing in silver today as it’s one of the precious metals that are still affordable even for “small time” investors. If you own silver, or if you’re considering buying it, you want to know where it’s going so you can make an informed decision. One thing that is important to know is that there’s a rumor going around about the silver surplus. That rumor states that the world has a big, annual surplus of silver because silver is so cheap to mine. To the uninformed investor, that might sound completely plausible.
