(October 31, 2012) - While plenty of those dedicated to gold and silver investing are in it for the long term, there are a lot of investors out there who prefer to go after short term gains when they can. Voices in the media that have been saying the time to stock up on gold is now often do not mention the real benefits to be had for those who buy gold or silver for the short term jump in price that's being widely forecast. According to a recent article by Jeff Reeves, Editor of The Slant, the opportunities that lie in store for those who purchase gold and silver now while prices are at a low point really do bear closer investigation even though Reeves himself is not a diehard fan of any particular asset. What makes Reeves' voice particularly compelling for those interested in precious metals is that he has wide tastes in investing strategies and is not simply a fan of hard assets like gold or silver alone.
