Silver No Fly Zone

Silver is the most managed commodity on the planet because its relationship to gold – because if its held down this will help control the price of gold. The status quo needs to have the multitudes remain complacent and distracted from their nefarious ways, because they are debasing everything, not the least of which is the currency. So a ‘no fly zone’ has been declared on silver because of its importance in maintaining the status quo’s illusion – the balloons, bubbles, and other inflated deception. Because of this, silver has become the most important market in the financial universe, where all other markets effectively hinge on it like never before, which is a fundamental reality status quo price managers will regret in coming years.

Silver Market Morning: April-11-2016 -- Like a cat getting ready to pounce

India – The government of India has formed a sub-committee under former Chief Economic Advisor Ashok Lahiri to study the imposition of the 1% sales tax on gold and silver in addition to the existing 10% already imposed and come up with suggestions. The jeweler’s strike is now completing its first month with no sign of respite. We don’t think anything will change because now, the Central Board of Excise and Customs (CBEC), has imposed 15% ad valorem duty on several items including gold and silver that are brought into the country by travellers.

April 8: Gold and Silver Gain Over 1% on the Week

Gold dropped $10.68 to $1229.62 in London, but it then climbed back higher for most of trade in New York and ended with a loss of just 0.06%. Silver rose to as high as $15.38 and ended with a gain of 0.85%.

Can Silver Keep Pace With Gold?

Silver futures are up about 8.5 percent this year, making it stand out among other commodities and financial markets. Investors snapped up coins, with U.S. Mint data showing March silver coin sales were up 17 percent over the previous year’s figure. Inflows into silver-backed exchange-traded funds witnessed their highest monthly inflow since December 2010, according to Commerzbank. Still, gold’s 15 percent year-to-date gain outshines silver, which means the gray metal has some catching up to do if it wants to match gold’s performance

Market Report: Firm undertones

There is much happening on the subject of money, and to an extent, even gold is a bystander in a developing monetary train wreck. In recent weeks we have seen sterling come under pressure on fears of Brexit, plus some appalling trade figures. If Brexit happens, it will be the end of the grand European project, and the euro could disintegrate, but markets are not yet reflecting this possibility.

Silver Market Morning: April-8-2016 -- Waiting for something to happen?

Interest rates and their prospects are driving exchange rates globally as well as equity markets. Their rises have little to do with positive economic prospects, making such rises stand on questionable foundations. This leaves them vulnerable.

April 7: Gold and Silver Gain Roughly 1% While Stocks Fall Back Off

Gold gained $19.87 to $1243.17 by midmorning in New York before it drifted back lower into midday, but it still ended with a gain of 1.39%. Silver rose to as high as $15.357 and ended with a gain of 0.93%.

The Interesting Relationship Between Silver Rallies and Interest Rates

It is not well known, that historically silver and interest rates have actually moved together (in the long-term). When interest rates are going up, then silver is going up. When interest rates are going down, silver is going down. In the short-term, interest rates and silver can diverge (like since about 2002 to now); however, this is temporary.

Silver Market Morning: April-7-2016

The Fed in its minutes of the last FOMC meeting confirmed its concern over the global economy and the strong dollar. This weakened the dollar against world currencies and to us confirmed the dollar faces a future of either sideways movements or of falling lower against other leading currencies. We cannot emphasize enough the importance of a weak dollar on global financial markets and the monetary system itself in future market action globally.

(NYSE-MARKET: "MGN", TSX: "MGT")(also the "Company") has received notification from the NYSE MKT (the "Exchange") stating that, in accordance with Section 1009 of the Company Guide, the Company has made a reasonable demonstration of its ability to regain compliance with Section 1003(a)(iv) of the NYSE MKT Company Guide (the "Company Guide") by the end of the revised plan period, which the Exchange has extended to be June 30, 2016.

Perth Mint Silver Coins Have Second Highest Monthly Demand

The Perth Mint’s sales of silver coins and especially Silver Kangaroos surged again in March and saw the second highest levels of silver coin demand on record as silver buyers in the western world continue to accumulate silver at what they believe to be depressed silver prices.

Mines Management Inc. Reports 2015 Financial Results and Montanore Project Update

The Company's cash reserves as of December 31, 2015, are estimated to be sufficient to continue operations through the end of the first quarter of 2016. The Company is seeking financing and may consider a joint venture of the Montanore Project or other strategic alternatives. If the Company were to issue equity at the current stock price, the conversion price of the existing Series B 6% convertible preferred stock (the "preferred stock"), would be adjusted from the current $0.7866 per share downward to equal the issuance price, resulting in an increase in the number of shares of common stock issuable on conversion of the preferred stock.

April 5: Gold and Silver Gain Over 1% While Stocks Drop

Gold gained $21.72 to $1236.62 by a little after 8:30AM EST before it chopped back lower at times, but it still ended with a gain of 1.26%. Silver climbed to as high as $15.209 and ended with a gain of 1.41%.

Awesome Silver & USD Alarm Bell

1. I’ve strongly stated that in the short and intermediate term, the most important price driver of gold is the US dollar’s movement against the yen. 2. The dollar is the world’s largest “risk-on” market, because America is the world’s largest debtor. Japan is the world’s largest creditor. 3. Downside action of the dollar against the yen is a financial fire alarm bell. When the alarm rings, many of the world’s most powerful FOREX economists urge their clients to buy gold, and many do with substantial size.

April 4: Gold and Silver Fall With Stocks and Oil

Gold dropped $8.17 to $1215.23 in London before it rallied back to almost unchanged in early New York trade, but it then chopped back lower into the close and ended with a loss of 0.69%. Silver slipped to as low as $14.919 and ended with a loss of 1%.

Silver Bullion Is A Coiled Spring and Will “Explode Higher”

Silver bullion’s reluctant, sluggish participation in early 2016’s powerful gold rally has been glaringly obvious. Instead of amplifying the yellow metal’s big gains as in the past, silver largely failed to even keep pace. The lack of silver confirmation for gold’s big move has certainly raised concerns. But despite silver’s vexing torpidity in recent months, it is a coiled spring ready to explode higher to catch and surpass gold.

Silver Market Morning: April-4-2016 -- Dollar weakness to continue

Dollar weakness to continue: We have highlighted the Fed’s dislike of a stronger dollar, confirmed by Mrs. Yellen’s speech. But to this we add the steady excretion of dollars from China as it diversifies out of the dollar into a broader currency based portfolio. In our newsletters we have highlighted the coming multi-currency monetary system replacing dollar hegemony for several years now. This is underway now.

April 1: Gold Gains With Miners While Slips Silver on the Week

Gold saw slight gains in Asia before it fell to see a $22.04 loss at $1209.16 by midmorning in New York, but it then rallied back higher into the close and ended with a loss of 0.63%. Silver slipped to as low as $14.833 and ended with a loss of 2.27%.

A tale of two currencies

The problems we face have been created by the major central banks. I shall assume, for the purpose of this article, that a second financial and monetary crisis will not have its origin in the collapse of China's credit bubble, nor that Japan's situation destabilises. These are additional risks, the first of which in particular is widely expected, but are subject to the control of a command economy. They obscure problems closer to home. Instead I shall concentrate on two old-school economies, that of the US and the Eurozone, where I believe the real dangers lie.

March 31: Gold and Silver Gain Before Jobs Day

Gold gained $14.60 to $1240.20 at about 9AM EST before it chopped back lower into the close, but it still ended with a gain of 0.46%. Silver rose to as high as $15.521 and ended with a gain of 1.38%.

Silver Lows – Silver Ratios

In my opinion, silver reached a bottom back in December 2015. The silver to gold ratio and the silver to S&P ratio support that conclusion. The RSI turned up in December. Anything can happen in “managed” markets, but 26 years of history indicate that silver bottomed in December.

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.

Silver-coin shortage shows bright side of precious metal collapse

The global silver-coin market is in the grips of an unprecedented supply squeeze, forcing some mints to ration sales and step up overtime while sending U.S. buyers racing abroad to fulfill a sudden surge in demand.

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.
