Is a 13 or 15 Handle Next for Silver?

In fact, silver is trading below its fundamental price also. However, it’s only at a 4.2% discount. If it were to go to its full fundamental value, and assuming that doesn’t change, it would be up near $15. But what if it were to go on the same kind of sale as gold? At a discount of 12.2%, silver would be down near $13.

Silver Market Morning: Nov-23-2015

So, we are in a currency war of note! Who will pull the dollar down? The U.S. will have to, as it is damaging the U.S. economy and all the more so, if it rises further. In that case gold will follow other currencies down but then the damage done will call for a reassessment of the value of gold. The nearest parallel we have to this scene is in 2008 when gold fell to its bottom before moving to its peak of $1,921. Why, at that time, did the gold price then rise? Because of fears of a collapse of the financial system!

Silver Market Morning: Nov-13-2015

The Gold price is at a critical juncture at just above $1,180. This is now a near perfect double bottom, but today is the busiest day for gold in the week. For the superstitious it is also Black Friday [13th]. Overnight the dollar, currencies and the gold price were relatively stable. Yesterday, saw the gold price fall to $1,176 at one point before leaping up to $1,189, before falling back to finish, as we showed above. So the question is, “Is this a bottom for gold or will the $1,180 level be ignored and the falls continue.”

A SOLUTION TO THE MONETARY PROBLEM: A Chicken in Every Pot and A Bitcoin Miner on Every iPhone

In January 2015 the People of Greece voted the anti-austerity Syriza party into power and appointed Alexis Tsipras as their new Prime Minister. The mandate from the people was clear: No Austerity. Over the next 6 months Tsipras and his finance minister Yanis Varoufakis negotiated with a group of EU finance ministers about a bailout threatening to leave the Eurozone if they did not get their wishes...a bailout without austerity measures. Ultimately, the negotiations failed as the EU negotiators held the ultimate trump card: shutting down the monetary system in Greece.

Silver Market Morning: Nov-12-2015

The currency markets, the dollar and the gold price stabilized with a weaker bias, again today. Again, the dollar has not broken through the 100 level on the dollar Index. With the Eurozone contemplating negative interests rates down as far as 0.75% [like Denmark and Sweden] we believe that the Treasury and the E.C.B. have or will agree that such stimuli not be permitted to weaken the euro. That is, if the dollar Index rises above 100, convincingly.

Gold edged up to $1093.63 in Asia, but it then drifted back lower in London and New York and ended with a loss of 0.34%. Silver slipped to as low as $14.27 and ended with a loss of 0.83%.

Silver Market Morning: Nov-11-2015

One pressure on the global economy that is being ignored is the fundamental approach of the Chinese to learn how to copy products it currently imports. While the current slowdown in the Chinese economy is undermining the global economy, the policy of local manufacturing replacing imports is much more abrasive on the global economy. China’s quest for economic independence from the developed world will hurt the global economy savagely, in time.

A 14 Handle on Silver. Again.

What’s the difference between the Supply and Demand Report 1 November and the Supply and Demand Report 8 November? Just a minor punctuation change. Last week, we asked (rhetorically) if silver would have a 14 handle again.

Upticks in Silver Demand Seen in First Half of 2015

Through the first half of this year, silver experienced increased demand for jewelry and important industrial applications, two signals of demand growth for this most versatile of metals.

Wrapping Up July Comex Silver Deliveries

Again, I can't overstate how unusual this is and how different it is from the norm. In a "normal" month where total deliveries came in at 85%, we would have seen about 2,300 total deliveries. Instead, we saw 3,637. Therefore, we're left to conclude that and additional 1,300 contracts were demanded for immediate delivery in July. This means that someone or something funded their account with 100% margin, jumped the "queue" and demanded immediate delivery of 6,500,000 ounces of silver. At prices ranging around $15/ounce, that's nearly $100,000,000.

The Silver Manipulation Con Continues at the Highest Levels of Government

The US Mint is not a very good liar. They are manipulating their sales data to stifle silver investor sentiment. My fight with the US Mint goes back 7 years. I wrote them in June 2008 to point out that stopping production of the US Silver Eagles was AGAINST THE LAW because the law required them to produce SAE's "in quantities sufficient to meet public demand." Since that time, and through my continual pestering over the years, they CHANGED THE LAW to make the US Treasury Secretary the one who decides if the coins are being produced to meet demand and only he has the power to stop or limit production.

Investment Silver Demand Draining COMEX Vaults

If there are words to characterize the precious metals markets for July, it would be “divergences” and “shortages.” There was heavy selling in the leveraged futures market and extraordinary buying demand and shortages in physical coins, rounds, and bars.

Leaving the Information Grid

We've been off the information grid for nearly a month now. Oh, we've still got electricity, the internet, the gas and water and sewer connexions, but a month ago the satellite went away at our command, so no more government and corporate news at 6 p.m. or the Sunday morning food-fights.

Silver and Gold: The Triumph of Experience over Hope

Rather than discuss the triumph of experience over hope regarding hard money, honest politicians, and free market economics, let’s look at the OPPOSITE.

The EPA's Polluted River

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's massive spill of arsenic-laden contaminants into Colorado's Animas River (literally, from the Spanish, River of Souls) a week ago has all the makings of a slow-speed softball pitched at this relentless critic of EPA's hubris, bullying and unscientific bullshite.

Desolation Row: the Silver Market

Silver peaked in 1980 and then crashed into “Silver Desolation Row” in 1999 – 2001, like now. The 1970s decade was the time for commodity price increases and inflation. The 1980s and 1990s saw a preference for paper assets and stocks, while commodities, gold, and silver prices collapsed.

Silver Cycle Low - Now

The price of silver has been crushed during the last four years. Prices are ready to reverse. We will know soon enough after the High-Frequency-Traders have their way with prices for paper silver and gold on the CME.

China chooses her weapons

China's recent mini-devaluations had less to do with her mounting economic challenges, and more to do with a statement from the IMF on 4 August, that it was proposing to defer the decision to include the yuan in the SDR until next October.

August 21: Gold Gains Almost 4% on the Week While Stocks Drop Roughly 6%

Gold gained $15.42 to $1167.42 in Asia before it fell all the way back to $1149.00 in London, but it then rose to as high as $1161.67 in New York and ended with a gain of 0.64%. Silver slipped to as low as $15.14 and ended with a loss of 1.29%.

Silver And The Petrodollar

Many have mistakenly dismissed silver as just another commodity like oil, for example. If one looks at how silver has traded since 2001, in comparison with oil, one might agree with that mistaken believe. During the same periods, both goods traded higher or lower, together. For example, from 2001 to 2008, both silver and oil rose significantly. During those seven years, silver increased more than four times in value while oil rose more than seven times.

Gold and Silver: Heading for a “Blue Screen of Death” Event?

For personal computer users who by choice or circumstance, find themselves using a version of the Microsoft Windows operating software family, a dreaded condition known as the “Blue Screen of Death” (BSoD) is a seldom occurring, yet ever-present possibility. Wikipedia defines it as being caused by poorly written device drivers or malfunctioning hardware, such as faulty memory, power supply issues, overheating of components or hardware running beyond its specification limits.

The Risky Investment that Could Make You Millions in the Next Financial Crisis

You wake up in the morning, turn on the news, and get a sick feeling in your stomach… The stock market is crashing again. Another big Wall Street bank has failed. Your 401(k) has lost another 25%. It’s bleeding value every week. Your dream of early retirement is history. You’ve lost so much money in stocks that even a "regular" retirement is in jeopardy. If you live a long life, there’s no way you’ll have enough money.

Yes, Gold is a Barbarous Relic...SO SWAP IT ALL FOR SILVER!

I know that you have a few gold coins in your safe. I know you think it's good for your diversification but NOW is the time to think differently. Now is not the time for diversification. Now is the time to SAVE your wealth and gold doubling or tripling over the next few years is NOT going to save you.

Silver Market Morning

On Friday New York closed at $1,134.40 up $10.30. The dollar was stronger at $1.1335 at the close up from $1.1496, against the euro, with the dollar Index stronger at 96.07 up from Friday’s 95.19. Because of the Bank Holiday in the U.K. no LBMA gold price was set today. Ahead of New York’s opening, gold was trading at $1,132.80 and in the euro at €1,010.80.

The danger of eliminating cash

In the early days of central banking, one primary objective of the new system was to take ownership of the public's gold, so that in a crisis the public would be unable to withdraw it.

Silver and S.M.S.

Silver prices have been crushed for over 4 years, especially in the paper futures markets. The predictable result has been reduced interest in real money – silver and gold. The media is more focused on Donald Trump, Caitlyn Jenner, and Hillary’s emails – not the reality of exponentially increasing debt, out-of-control spending, failed economic policies, and expensive wars.

You think premiums are big now???

Premiums on silver over the past weeks have exploded! Generally speaking, 10-25%+ seems to be the norm and anywhere from two - six weeks delay for delivery. We have talked about the dichotomy between silver being panic "sold" and "shortages" occurring simultaneously. In a free market, this is an impossibility.

Silver Market Morning

On Friday New York closed at $1,122.10 down $3.30. The dollar was weaker at $1.1162 down from $1.1142 at the close, against the euro, with the dollar Index slightly weaker at 96.28 down from 96.34.

Silver and Deflation

How does silver perform during deflation? Which is better during a deflation – silver or gold? The answers will depend on quite a few things as well as what definition of deflation one uses.

The Massive Debt Bubble Will Push Silver Prices Much Higher

Silver had a spectacular rise in price from about August 2010 to April 2011. In fact, it was so impressive that some thought the peak was the end of the bull market for silver. After all, silver had risen about 12.33 times from its bottom in 2001.

Why Silver Premiums Are so High Right Now and How One Might Take Advantage of It?

In this article, I will explain first how and why silver bullion premiums have aggressively increased since the middle of summer 2015 AND how and what I am doing to take advantage of the current premiums via a bullion form sell and buy arbitrage.

Silver: Victim of Motive, Means, and Opportunity

Silver gets little respect, but that is sensible in a world dominated by paper assets and pretend values. Similar to a murder investigation, let’s examine the motive, means and opportunity used to “manage” silver prices.

Silver Market Morning: Sept-29-2015

What we are seeing now is a set of global markets fearful of a breakdown in prices. As prices fall, not just in commodities, but equity markets, we become very aware of the massive levels of debt that is sitting in the hands of individuals, corporates, governments’ et al. Because of this we see occasional collapses of value as this becomes recognized. Glencore, the mining giant and broker has seen its share prices buckle in Australia today. With debt twice the level of its market capitalization, their situation well expresses the fears sensitizing the markets at all levels. The commodities sector does not look as though it is going to recover for a very long time. This includes U.S. oil companies trying to persuade their regulators that their debt levels are sustainable as oil prices could fall further.

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.
