Silver Market Morning

After Mario Draghi’s confirming that he wants to see a weaker euro, the market has obliged by pulling it back from its recent peak just under $1.40: €1 to $1.38: €1. If gold is moved in the same way as gold, we come to $1,307. This is where the gold price is now. We did not see selling of gold to press the gold price down, but dealer’s adjustment of prices in line with the dollar’s strength. Like the waves on the seashore the gold price fell but we believe this will bring in Asian buyers allowing the gold price to move higher after the current consolidation is complete.

Silver, Gold, and What Could Go Wrong

Richard Russell thinks the stock market is currently dangerous and that silver and gold are safe. He understands that gold and silver are eternal wealth with NO counter-party risk. What is counter-party risk? It is the risk that paper wealth is not real, that debts will not be paid, that dollars, yen, and euros will decline in purchasing power, that your employer will declare bankruptcy and your pension will be cut in half, that your brokerage account will be hypothecated by management, that your bank will declare bankruptcy and your deposits in that bank are unsecured liabilities of the bank and may not be paid either timely or in full. In short, there is counter-party risk in almost everything.

"Sunday Night Sentiment" attack

Another weekend, and another "Sunday Night Sentiment" attack to calm budding PM sentiment in the week's early hours - in fact, the 35th in the past 36 Sundays; the 203rd “2:15 AM” raid in the past 229 days; and additional raids each and every time PMs attempt to increase - particularly at "Battlefield $20/oz silver," which is exactly where it is trading as I write. With the Ukrainian crisis on the verge of dramatically escalating, and global economic weakness practically begging for "moar" QE, it's only a matter of time before PM prices escape the Cartel's clutches; and at the least, rise to levels well above the cost of production.

Battlefield $20 Silver

Today is one of those days where I intend to achieve my goal, as there are simply too many important topics to be broached. Frankly, it is awe-inspiring to watch the daily machinations of global money printing, market manipulation, and propaganda destroying the lives of countless billions. Each successive manoeuver materially adds to the cumulative misery we anticipate in the coming decade – such as today’s Bank of England decision to maintain its 0.50% interest rate for the sixth straight year, and its £375 billion QE program.

They WILL lose

The global equity crash continues, notwithstanding this morning's blatant PPT efforts to staunch the blood flow. Worldwide, economic data is collapsing, whilst inflation is surging. Watching oil surge whilst stocks plunge should scare the heck out of anyone believing in "deflation and recovery." But then again, we have been saying this all along.

Market Report: Better tone to precious metals

FOMC members appear from the minutes to be confused. The previous month's conclusion, that if it wasn't for the weather the economy is improving and so interest rates will increase a little earlier than expected, is replaced with renewed anxiety about the outlook now the weather has improved. And who can blame them: after QE1, 2 and 3, some iffy numbers like unemployment have fallen, but where's the price inflation? The overriding concern for all central bankers is still the prospect of deflation.

Real U.S. Silver Money Would Consume Nearly Half Of The World's Mine Supply

The U.S. Treasury would consume nearly half of total mine supply if U.S coins contained silver. Prior to 1965, the U.S. Mint included silver in its coinage. The U.S. dime, quarter and half-dollar consisted of 90% silver. However, today they are nothing more than base metal slugs.

Gold in near-death experience on Comex

Well, it’s a bit of an exaggeration, but for the first three days of this week daily turnover in the gold future fell to about 80,000 contracts, compared with a more normal level of 120,000. At the same time volatility fell to as close to zero as you can get. The week started with the gold price at $1241 and until yesterday at 1.00pm UK time stuck to a tight range of $7 centred on $1244. Open interest picked up a little, as shown in our first chart.

Silver Market Update

The public are now extremely bearish on silver, with a widespread perception that it is “done for”, but as we will see, even if there is some further short-term weakness, the longer-term outlook for silver is very bright indeed.

CFTC Commissioner Bart Chilton on HFT Regulations, Silver Manipulation Probe & MF Global

We talk to Bart Chilton, author of "Ponzimonium," about how the law needs to change in order to make bringing fraud charges forward, easier. One of those things is the laws and wording around "intent," something that has made prosecution and regulation much more difficult. And one place that regulation is important is in preventing, or curtailing market manipulation, specifically the manipulation of the gold and silver market. There is much speculation about the role of large bullion banks in the gold and silver market, and how they may be using large, concentrated directional positions to affect the price. There has been an ongoing CFTC investigation that Bart Chilton hopes will provide some answers for the public soon.

A New Silver Producer on the Rise

Global equities are falling sharply; but of course "the buck stops" with the U.S. - care of the PPT.

Silver Aiding New Medical Technologies

Recent advances in biotechnology have brought a focus on silver's centuries-old role in medicine; that of acting as an important weapon in the fight against infection and disease. Silver is a critical element in bandages used to treat wounds and reduce the threat of infections in difficult environments. It has also been a key component of treatment in hospitals to reduce the spread of surgical infections in the operating room and in patient care areas.

14 ways manipulation could end ... but it won’t be today

In my last column, I attempted to defend my “assumption” that “manipulation is here to stay.” Today, my charge is to present several scenarios that would/could end the manipulation of precious metals.

Should we all buy silver on May 1st? Twelve reasons I say, “dang straight!”

An effort has recently been launched on the Internet to get those who believe in “real money” to buy (physical) silver on May 1st. It’s too soon to know if this grassroots’ appeal goes “viral” and makes a statement that influences not only markets, but the mainstream media and perhaps even the world.

I’m assuming manipulation is here to stay

For the purposes of this column I’m going to start with an assumption - not just any assumption, but a crucially important assumption; probably the only assumption that matters.

Important Charts on Gold & Silver Eagle Sales

After record buying of Gold Eagles during the precious metal smack-down earlier this year, sales of the official coins declined significantly in August & September. However, sales have seen a substantial turn around this past month. Sales of the Gold Eagles were only 11,500 oz in August and 13,000 oz in September. The total of these two months were only half of the total amount shown in July, which recorded 50,500 oz of Gold Eagle sales.

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).
