Time Running Out on Silver Bear

For over the last 3 years, TPTB have been throwing everything including the kitchen sink at gold and silver to suppress the price. They've done a great job, i must admit - but ultimately, they will find their endeavor to suppress "real money" as futile as attempting to swim a beach ball to the bottom of a pool.

Why Silver and Gold Are the GOOD NEWS Metals

For all of the above reasons, make sure you own one or more of these four increasingly precious metals. Don’t consider their purchase to be an expense. You’re simply exchanging a paper currency that continues to lose purchasing power, for real money which not only holds onto its value, but tends to increase over time. Now that proposition is good news in anyone’s book!

Silver Market Morning: Oct-27-2014

In New York there were sellers of 4.485 tonnes of gold in the SPDR gold ETF but there was a purchase of 0.82 of a tonne into the Gold Trust on Friday. This did assist the fall in the gold price to $1,230, but this was off the day’s lows. It does look like we are back in consolidation mode today. The holdings of the gold ETFs stand at 745.387 tonnes in the SPDR gold ETF and at 162.22 tonnes in the Gold Trust. This makes over 25 tonnes of gold sold from the gold ETFs in the last week. This is heavy and if it continues at these levels will restrain the gold price. If these sales halt, the support for the gold price remains strong and the price will rise.

Silver Aiding New Medical Technologies

Recent advances in biotechnology have brought a focus on silver's centuries-old role in medicine; that of acting as an important weapon in the fight against infection and disease. Silver is a critical element in bandages used to treat wounds and reduce the threat of infections in difficult environments. It has also been a key component of treatment in hospitals to reduce the spread of surgical infections in the operating room and in patient care areas.

GET READY: The Great Transfer of Wealth in Gold & Silver is Coming

Wild Price Changes in Silver

I have been a bit amazed by silver's wild price changes lately. People have asked me to comment on it. I have my thoughts, so I'll share.

Gold dropped $18.50 to $1291.40 in Asia before it rebounded to $1307.52 in London and then fell back to $1296.00 by a little before 10AM EST, but all bets were off when it became time for the fed’s highly anticipated announcement on possible tapering of its stimulus program.

Total Physical Silver Demand Achieves Record Level in 2013

Total physical silver demand rose by 13 percent in 2013 to an all-time high, according to “World Silver Survey 2014″, released today by the Silver Institute. This was primarily driven by the 76 percent increase in retail investment in bars and coins coupled with a sturdy recovery in jewelry and silverware fabrication. On the supply side, silver scrap fell by 24 percent, experiencing the largest drop on record to reach its lowest level since 2001. The silver price averaged $23.79 in 2013, the third highest nominal average price on record, in a particularly volatile year for the entire precious metals complex.

An Open Letter to Mining Company Executives

Please accept my sincere condolences on the continuing suppression of metal prices. As a stock holder in your company, I share your concern that an unrelenting environment of depressed metal prices will inevitably cause damage to your mining company. I will not insult your intelligence by dwelling on the long term solution that you are so very well aware of (i.e., reduce mining output at low prices, both as a way to pressure prices higher, and as a way to conserve your precious in ground resource for times when prices are more favorable). Instead, I hope to suggest short term tactics that could help to restore higher prices.

The Silver Saga

The silver standard did not die a natural death. It was deliberately killed. A proper search for the assassins was never carried out. There was never a post-mortem. In this paper we focus on the conspiracy as it might have unfolded between the two dates: April 9, 1865 (the day General Lee of the Confederacy surrendered at Appomattox to General Grant of the Union marking the end of the War Between the States) and January 1, 1879 (Resumption Day, when payment of the victorious Union’s currency, the greenback was resumed in gold specie ̶ but not in silver).

Silver: The Noise is Deafening!

The weak prices for silver and gold during the past three years are a correction to the massive run-up in prices from October 2008 – mid 2011. During that time silver increased from a low of $8.53 to a high of nearly $50.00. Gold increased from a low under $700 to a high over $1,900. They have been correcting since then. The correction is, I expect, over – FINALLY.

CFTC Commissioner Bart Chilton on HFT Regulations, Silver Manipulation Probe & MF Global

We talk to Bart Chilton, author of "Ponzimonium," about how the law needs to change in order to make bringing fraud charges forward, easier. One of those things is the laws and wording around "intent," something that has made prosecution and regulation much more difficult. And one place that regulation is important is in preventing, or curtailing market manipulation, specifically the manipulation of the gold and silver market. There is much speculation about the role of large bullion banks in the gold and silver market, and how they may be using large, concentrated directional positions to affect the price. There has been an ongoing CFTC investigation that Bart Chilton hopes will provide some answers for the public soon.

Silver: The GSR Bottom Finder

Six of eight significant silver market lows in the past 23 years occurred when the GSR (gold to silver ratio) was > 64 and the RSI (Relative Strength Index (link) of the GSR was < 35. Silver, in late June and early July 2013, met the above criteria, along with a near record low RSI of the GSR, and a record low in the TDI Trade Signal Line.These are strongly bullish conditions.

How can someone like me make a prediction about silver prices?

In a sense, I’m not qualified to issue an “expert” opinion on the future prices of silver and gold. I’m a managing editor of a weekly newspaper with a degree in political science. I took two economics classes in college. I don’t work in the “industry” that establishes PM prices. My knowledge of futures markets, “all-in” mining costs and technical analysis is elementary at best.

Institutions Mislead The Public About Silver Investment Demand

There's a lot of shortsighted and incorrect silver analysis out there, so it's imperative that you consider the information in this article. CPM Group just announced the release of their 2014 Silver Yearbook. In their statement they implied that "Net Global Silver Investment" declined in 2013, while fabrication demand increased.

Has key to silver ‘bet’ finally changed?

Regarding the question of current and near-future prices of precious metals, it occurs to me that we might be in the midst of a revealing test. Are prices now - finally - “breaking out” and heading skyward? Or: Are the Powers That Be still in control and easily able to cap prices wherever and whenever they like?

What's Really Happening with China's Silver Demand?

ANALYSTS at Barclays Bank recently noted that silver imports were down 28% in the month of April year on year. But in an article reporting that news, the author makes it sound like demand was also off significantly for unwrought silver, for silver powder, and for jewelry manufacturing as well.

Silver Market Update

Silver has confirmed gold’s breakout of several days ago by following suit and breaking out above important resistance on Friday on the strongest volume for almost 6 months. This means that we are now in a full on Precious Metals sector uptrend, which is still in its earliest stages.

Precious Metals Moving Closer to Bottom

Although gold stocks are rallying today, my work leads me to believe that there is more downside before a bottom. The good news is the sector is now much closer than it was a few weeks ago. Yet, patience and discipline will be the name of the game over the coming days and weeks. Discipline is required to exit hedges at the right time while patience is required to buy as low as possible. I am looking at JNUG (3x long GDXJ) as well as several juniors I believe have exceedingly strong upside potential over the coming quarters and years.

Gold's Little Brother Is Talking

Silver seems set to perform well against the dollar, but it also appears to be ready to make gold look like a bit of a slug.Unlike most silver investors, I have no interest in selling silver for “dollars of profit”. I view silver primarily as a currency.Gold is the ultimate currency, and I think silver is best viewed as “gold’s little brother”.I sold silver for gold in the first quarter of 2011, and now it’s time for me to buy silver with gold.

Silver Price Projection – for 2013

An objective and reasonable estimate for the price of silver at the next intermediate peak (estimating 2013 – Quarter 2) is $50 to $60 per ounce (current price is about $28). This is not a prediction based on wishful thinking and hope, but a best estimate based on rational analysis of data stretching back to 1975.
