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.

Voters should ask these questions!

Another mid term election in the USA is only a few days away. Politicians are racing against time to promise wonderful things to convince voters to support them. In a town hall format, for example, each person might have less than a minute to make a brief statement and ask a related question to the Congressional candidate. I encourage everyone to participate in the democratic process, because what alternative is there really?

Why worry about bullion silver?

Bullion silver is likely to be less pure than coins or small bars, but 1,000 ounce bullion silver bars are cheaper per ounce than the smaller fabricated sizes. Bullion silver is typically available for only a few cents more per ounce than the spot price in the paper futures market. So long as bullion bars can always be purchased at little more than spot price, a business that simply melts the bars would never pay more to melt fabricated silver, even if it is more highly refined. If the business could not buy cheap bullion bars locally, it would simply go long a futures contract and then stand for delivery of the physical bullion silver.

Gold & Silver Maple Leaf Sales Increase in a Big Way

According to the Royal Canadian Mint's newest quarterly report just released, Gold and Silver Maple Leaf sales increased substantially Q1, 2013.

Silver Market Update

While silver is on the defensive short-term there is plenty of evidence that over the medium and longer-term it is setting up for a powerful rally.

When it comes to silver investing, in Ron Paul I trust

Truth be told the main reason I started investing in precious metals is Ron Paul. And, truth be told, the main reason I’m not interested in selling any of my silver or gold (or mining stocks) is also Ron Paul.

Chinchillas – A Deposit For The Times

With a market cap of less than $10 million, Golden Arrow Resources Corp. (TSX.V: GRG) just released a first-ever NI43-101-compliant resource estimate on its +100 million silver ounces Chinchillas Silver-Zinc-Lead Deposit which is just 30 km away from the productive Pirquitas Silver Mine (reserves: 84 million silver ounces; output: 9 million silver ounces per year) run by Silver Standard Resources (TSX: SSO; market cap: $560 million). The near-by El Aguilar Zinc-Lead Mine and the Palpala Smelter are both owned by mining giant Glencore Xstrata. In December 2012, Coeur d’Alene Mines (TSX: CDE; market cap: $1.5 billion) paid $1.78 per ounce for Mirasol Resources’ 30 million ounces silver deposit which is also located in Argentina.

We shouldn’t hold our breath waiting for government agencies to end manipulation

It’s impossible to believe that regulators, prosecutors and others charged with enforcing commodity laws and regulations are unaware of charges of manipulation. Volumes of articles have been published on the topic. Organizations such as GATA exist solely to document these charges (and forward summaries to said regulators). High-profile market analysts such as Ted Butler have done the same thing for years. And yet no charges have been filed.

Connivers Figuring To Cheat (CFTC) & What Will They Say When Silver Runs Out

Precious Metals Prices To Rise As The U.S. Economy Disintegrates

As the U.S. economy continues to disintegrate, increasing numbers of investors will be forced to move out of paper assets and into physical gold and silver to protect their wealth.

U.S. MINT SILVER EAGLES: Record Demand On Manipulated Low Paper Price

New 'LBMA Silver Price' - Still Not Transparent

Overnight, silver and gold in singapore were flat as they were in London prior and after the new ‘LBMA silver price’. Futures trading volume has picked up and was about average for the past 100 days this morning. Gold and silver remain in very tight ranges which usually precedes a sharp move higher or lower. Given the poor economic data recently and geopolitical backdrop we expect gold and silver to break higher in the coming days as we enter the seasonal sweet spot for gold and silver.

SilverStrategies' Sean Rakhimov Advises Diversity

It's these times—volatile markets that shake you to your core—when you truly learn what kind of investor you are, says Sean Rakhimov, the founder of SilverStrategies. The investors who face these testing times, never forgetting why they sunk their funds into precious metals in the first place, are soon to be rewarded, according to Rakhimov. In this interview with The Gold Report, Rakhimov explains why he believes that investors who haven't been shaken out of stocks yet will be able to cash in on a "triple" headed to the silver sector.

Silver, Gold and S&P: Trend Change Due

The year 2013 was a great year for the S&P and a terrible year for silver and gold investors. There are many indications that it is time for a reversal.

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?

Why silver’s outperforming gold and isn’t done yet

Silver has quietly scored double the percentage gains of gold this month, and prices for silver probably haven’t topped out for the year. “The real value of silver is far from being realized,” said Andrew Chanin, chief executive officer of PureFunds, which offers the PureFunds ISE Junior Silver ETF.

Gold, Silver, Fish Lines, and Rhino Horns

Buy fish line patterns, sell rhino horn patterns, and trust that politicians and bankers will continue to borrow and spend money that must be “printed” in ever-increasing quantities. Example: Official national debt increased by $1,013,588,000,000 in the one year from Sept. 23, 2013 to Sept. 22, 2014.

Fire, Water...and the "4 G's"

I have thought about writing this type of piece many times before but have only touched on the subject several times. I had decided in the past not to venture forth because I was afraid that what I wrote might be perceived incorrectly and turn readers off to my main message of protecting themselves financially. What I am about to write assumes we will have at least a short period of time where life goes back if not 150 years, but maybe to "caveman days".

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).

The Silver Series: Silver as an Investment (Part 3)

Silver has had double digit gains in 7 of the last 10 years. In this infographic, we look at the investment properties of silver as well as its chief differences with gold. Highlights include a study on silver correlation, volatility, performance against the US Dollar and money supply, and portfolio diversification.

The world’s worst ‘open secret’

In my view, the manipulation (more accurately, “suppression”) of precious metal prices is the most recognized “open secret” in markets today. That is, virtually everyone who participates in the markets that set PM prices understands - takes for granted - that prices are capped and will not be allowed to rise above a certain price point.

Silver Market Update

All the signs are that silver’s long correction is now over and that it is beginning a major uptrend. The Commercials have cleared out most of their short positions, for a massive profit of course, meaning that the slate is wiped clean for the game to start over anew. Public opinion and sentiment towards silver remains rotten, which is exactly what you expect to see at a major low, with the investing public at large, having been duly “educated” by the mainstream media, harboring a negative attitude to silver and if anything inclined to short it. Lastly, seasonal factors couldn’t be better – August and September are good months for gold which will have a positive influence on silver and September is traditionally the best month of the year for silver by far.

The Forces That Will Push Silver Over $100

There are tremendous forces at work that will push silver over $100 an ounce. Very few precious metal analysts understand all the forces that are at work. Some analysts focus on specific areas such as the gold-silver ratio and technical analysis, while others write about future investment and industrial demand. And then of course, we have the more unorthodox analysts who delve into the ongoing manipulation of gold and silver -- a realization shared by the author of this article.

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.
