I've heard some people say the DOW will hit 16,000 before the end of the year.

On the other side, a couple guys say it's going to be worse than last time and will drop to 2,500.

One of these, 'Doom & Gloom' guys said I should buy Silver at $34.00 last Fall because it was going to go over $50.00 when the crap hit the fan in the Spring of 2013 (which is now) but right now, Silver is at $18.50. (glad I didn't buy then)
