    Aaron, you said on the podcast that you couldn’t buy physical silver at the spot price, because there is none available. But what prevents you from buying a near-term futures contract and taking delivery?

    Chaz, part of the answer to your question is that futures contracts for silver are in 1000oz quantities, which is a bit over some people’s budget. Smaller players will buy 100oz and 10oz bars, and various kinds of coins. The market for these items is still pretty tight.

    1000oz is also a bit over 60 pounds, which is a bit inconvenient to transport and store.

    (That would be 1000oz in a single bar)
