^ Don’t be among the sheep. Meehhh…

If you have not heard about herd mentality, you may want to stop your world for a second and read up a bit on it. Chances are if you are making decisions based upon the actions of others, you may be among the sheep.

Investors with herd mentality are usually at the bottom of the food chain when it comes to investment. Because they rely mainly on grapevines, they usually buy during uptrend and sells during a downtrend.

Here are six tips on how to avoid being a sheep.

1) DYODD – Do your own due diligence.

Everybody is a guru of their own league. Without a solid understanding on the fundamental, you will be swing left and right by all these so-called investment gurus.

Some may predicts silver will dunked down to $25/oz and that would be the best time to buy. Another guy you barely known will say it is now or never! Dig out all your cash today and buy as much as possible today! Price will start shooting up tomorrow! Target $65/oz!

^ Mike Myers is the silver guru. He foresees silver will go uptrend forever.

You should start by understanding the primary fundamental of silver before diving into it. Having your own point of view is crucial. Bear in mind that sheep does not have the ability to think, they just follow.

Unlike gold, silver is a hybrid with two major usages. Almost all silver ever unearthed are channeled into industrial usages. Merely 5% of silver are used for store-of-value or monetary purposes. Silver is traded just like any commodity in COMEX and is subject to volatility. Unless you are able to tolerate the yo-yo like prices, you may want to consider alternative investment.

Do your own research sufficiently on the nature of silver.

DYODD and be your own guru.
