The overall trend in the silver market currently appears to be, when prices weaken, investors continue to hold and in some cases buy more.

The Collapse Of U.S. Silver Stocks As Public Debt Skyrockets

The U.S. Empire is in real trouble. This is due to its idiotic business model of selling quality assets while acquiring massive liabilities and debts. Of course, the U.S. Government realizes this is not a sustainable way to do business, but at least for now.... we continue to have our Bread & Circuses, McDonalds & NFL Football for a bit longer.

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.

Why Is The Future Silver Supply More at Risk than Gold?

The focus of the markets and the alternative media is firmly placed on the continued disintegration of the world financial system. Many believe that the collapse of the fiat monetary system along with the global banking cartel is the worst possible outcome. However, this may actually turn out to be the good news in a sea of bad news that is lurking around the corner.

Silver: Supply and Demand Part 2, Investment Demand

This educational video looks at how and why people invest in silver. While economic, socio-political and psychological forces play a large part in determining the price of silver, it all comes back to the basic principles of supply and demand.

Silver – Keep It Simple!

Nixon dropped the link between the dollar and gold in 1971. Thereafter, the money supply rapidly expanded, consumer price inflation went wild, and both silver and gold increased in price by over a factor of 20 in early 1980.

US Mint to limit purchases of "America the Beautiful" silver coins

The U.S. Mint will limit dealers' purchases of its "America the Beautiful" five-ounce silver bullion coins when they go on sale next week because strong demand exceeds the mint's inventory.

Rainmaking with Silver

This method of cloud seeding has proven effective in the Snowy Mountains of Australia and the Sierra Nevada in the United States. By increasing winter snowpack in agricultural regions that experience droughts in the summer, it is possible to feed rivers for a longer period of time than if no cloud seeding was done. Check out this fascinating look at weather modification using silver as a nucleation agent for rainfall.

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.

Silver's Ultimate Rally: When Paper Assets Collapse

The relationship between the Dow and silver has been very consistent during the last 100 years. After each of the major Dow peaks (real, not necessarily nominal peaks), we eventually had a major bottom in silver.

Bottoming out?

Where this leaves precious metals is yet to be seen, but it is worth bearing in mind that hedge and other funds exposed to losses in bonds and equities will likely reduce their short positions in gold and silver. And if the current weakness in bonds and equities persists, it should be positive for precious metal prices as the bears run for cover.

Why You Should Buy Silver Before It’s Too Late

Too often silver falls in the shadow of its flashy, favored cousin gold, but the precious metal grabbed headlines last week when a 117-year-old tradition came to an end.

The MOAMOPE

The advent of computer generated trading algorithms heralded a quantum leap forward in the quest for 24/7 control of markets. No longer were humans beings required to do such unseemly things as man trading desks or worry a whit if free markets were, if even infrequently, attempting to function. Algo precision has made even the blackest of black swan events seem to turn lily white in their utter non-eventfulness. No more significant Dow or bond crashes, and best of all, no gold rallies exceeding (exactly) 1.00%, or the occasional 2.00%

Ned Naylor-Leyland: Journalist can and should publish his report on silver rigging

Last week I wrote about financial journalist William Cohan's unpublished article about silver market manipulation and a regulatory cover-up. This week Cohan has claimed that lawyers for London metals trader and market-rigging whistleblower Andrew Maguire were stopping him from publishing his article.

SILVER MINER SUSPENDS SALES: 35% Of Production Due To Low Prices

The first primary silver miner in the industry just announced that it suspended sales of silver during the 3rd quarter due to the low market price of silver. First Majestic suspended sales of 35% of its Q3 silver production. This was a significant amount as it was nearly 1 million oz of its 2.7 million oz production that quarter.

Silver to S&P Ratio: What It Tells Us

Based on Friday’s upticks, last week may have been the turning point for silver prices and the silver to S&P ratio. Or perhaps the S&P will continue reaching for the sky even though QE is supposedly diminishing, while silver prices drop further below the cost of production. Both seem unlikely but we shall see.

Gold, Silver, Crude and S&P Ending Wedge Patterns

Gold and silver look like they have bottomed – again. Perhaps this time it will be a real bottom instead of another fake-out like December 2013 and June 2014. Demand is strong for physical gold and silver, but the supply of naked paper shorts on the COMEX is even larger. This will change. I see prices under $20 as a strong buy zone since I believe that $100 silver is only a few years away.

Silver To Hit New Highs As The Quality Of Analysis Falls To New Lows

The coming explosion in the value of silver will be a shock to the world due to the failure of the analyst community. I am completely amazed at the lack of quality analysis today. Except for a few good analysts, there's a sea of lousy ones who continue to put out work that becomes increasingly worthless each and every passing day.

The 'old-fashioned' gift of silver

This year for the first time I'm going to give the gift of silver as a Christmas present. Specifically, I'm going to give a couple of silver coins to my godson who is in 8th grade.

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.
