Deflation and Central Bank Delusions

Watch Japan for further indications of a bond and currency implosion resulting from Abenomics and Keynesian money printing nonsense. The good times are over. A major crash or collapse could occur at any time, this year or even as late as the end of 2016. Deflation in many sectors has arrived. Excessive global debt can no longer be serviced, employment is weak, far too much collateral is impaired, commodity prices are declining, and too much wealth is being sucked out of our economies by the financial industry, the military-industrial complex, big pharmacy, big government and entitlements.

Basic Truth and Consequences

Silver has languished since April 2011 – nearly four years, thanks to heroic efforts to manage prices downward, and the correction of silver’s 2.5 year run up from under $9 to over $48. Will the last bull turn out the lights when you leave the building? The insanity of debt, derivatives, and outright bond monetization in the US, Europe and Japan could cause us to question basic truths and the consequences of ignoring reality.

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.

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Last week I wrote about financial journalist William Cohan's unpublished article about silver market manipulation and a regulatory cover-up.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.

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".

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.

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. COT’s and sentiment are already very bullish indeed, which means that when the turn does come, the rally is likely to be accentuated by panic short covering.

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.

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%

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.

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.

Some initial reactions from the FOMC meeting

The FOMC-Bernanke’s words were very bullish for gold and silver investors. We have believed that money printing, aka QE 3 and beyond, will continue to support the drivers in gold and silver buying. The announcement is extremely bullish also with those who had questioned the chosen path now begin to realize they need to get back into gold.

Shanghai Silver Stocks Decline Substantially After Price Take-down

There seems to be an interesting trend taking place in the silver warehouse stocks at the Shanghai Futures Exchange over the past two months. From May of 2012, when the Exchange started trading silver futures, until the beginning of 2013, silver warehouse stocks grew from virtually nothing to nearly 1,000 metric tonnes.

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.

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.

He began his career at the Chase Manhattan Bank and in 1983 was appointed manager of the commodity department of the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority.

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

Investors snatched up a record number of Silver Eagles as the paper price was manipulated to new lows today. This is a very strange market phenomenon, as several “Official” analysts forecasted a drop or sell-off of physical metal if the price continued to decline.

Managed money positions hint at bullish turns for gold and silver

I have recently written about the breakdown of disaggregated data from the futures markets into producers and swap dealers for gold and silver futures, as reported in the Commitment of Traders reports issued by the US government’s Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC). There is a further category of trader to consider, and that is Managed Money.

Could the Confirmation of the Breakdown in Silver be Consequential?

Investors sentiment for precious metals and gold and silver mining stocks has deteriorated quite substantially recently. And silver is no exception here, which can be seen on the white metal charts. However, the situation in the whole sector is extreme – the oversold readings on many technical indicators and the fact that very important support lines are currently in play in virtually any asset in the sector form a setup as (or even more) encouraging for potential buyers as what we saw in 2008. To see what we can expect on the silver market, let us move into today’s technical part – we will start with the white metal’s very long-term chart.

A New Silver Producer on the Rise

The latest price declines of gold and silver resulted in mining stocks tumbling heavily, whereas some stocks notably bottomed and started healthy rebounds most recently. Among our favorite stocks for short- and long-term recoveries is the new silver producer Santacruz Silver Mining Ltd. (TSX-V: SCZ; Frankfurt: 1SZ) which announced the start of commercial production of its 100% owned Rosario Mine in the Mexican state San Luis Potosi last week.

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.
