The Silver Manipulation Solution : 17 Requirements for a Freely Traded Silver Market Structure

The silver market is broken and has been broken for a long, long time. Much longer than most people think although many people can finally SEE the problems with the market now as the paper market continues to distort the price of physical silver. It is silver derivatives and computer trading models introduced in the 1970's that really started to distort the market value and it has never been more distorted than it is today. Hundreds of Billions of silver derivative ounces are transacted by the bullion banks every year to steer and control the price of silver. This volume of silver trading dwarfs the tiny physical silver market that only provides a few hundred million ounces of physical silver to the market annually for investors to buy.

Twilight Zone Economics

The US government has annual income of approximately $3 Trillion and official debt in excess of $18 Trillion. This does not count other liabilities such as Fannie and Freddie, and massive unfunded liabilities. But assuming “only” $18 Trillion in debt (optimistic) the US has the same ratio as a family with $60K income and $360K in credit card debt.

Gold, Silver, Yen & S&P Correlation

As you can see the smoothed graphs of monthly yen and monthly gold are similar. Over the last 8 years of gold prices rallying and crashing, the statistical correlation has been about 0.74. Since the all-time high in gold prices in August 2011, the yen-gold correlation has been an astonishing 0.96. Similarly, the smoothed graph of monthly yen and monthly S&P shows an inverse correlation. Yen down, S&P up, and Wall Street, the Fed, and the Bank of Japan are happy. The statistical correlation over the same 8 year period has been about negative 0.49. Since the all-time high in gold prices in August 2011, the yen-S&P correlation has been a negative 0.97.

Precious metal prices were broadly unchanged this week, confined to a tight trading range of $1210 to $1185 for gold and $16.60 to $16.00 for silver. There were several attempts by sellers to force prices to break down, but from the price action there appeared to be buyers waiting for the opportunity.

It Takes a Different Breed to Be Contrarian

The most memorable scene in the film adaptation of Glengarry Glen Ross is when Alec Baldwin’s character—a hotshot real estate broker from the prestigious Mitch and Murray agency—tells a group of struggling real estate agents that it takes “brass balls to sell real estate.” There’s probably some truth to that, but it takes bigger cojones to buy what everyone else hates.

Another Silver Short Squeeze Looms

Back in March, Comex silver prices surged 13% in just 6 days as a massive Spec short position was squeezed. Could the same setup be appearing again, primed for squeezing later this month? It certainly appears that way. Recall first the circumstances surrounding the squeeze last month. Conventional wisdom held that the FOMC meeting of March 17-18 was going to precede some sort of announcement of an imminent Fed Funds rate hike. In anticipation, momo-chasing Spec fund money came flowing into the short side of Comex silver.

Silver and Gold Will Thrive Beyond Exponential Growth of Debt

When the reset comes, and it may be years away, would you rather hold assets that are based on debt, trust in a possibly insolvent counter-party, and denominated in the currency of an increasingly insolvent government and central bank . . . . or physical gold and silver? Do you trust real silver and gold, or unbacked paper assets based on the promises of self-serving politicians and central bankers? These should be easy questions to answer when you realize that exponentially increasing debt, expenses, and commodity prices all point to inevitable and serious financial and social trauma.

Stacking Silver = Simple Solution

Keep It Simple – Stack! Governments borrow and spend, debt increases, and commodity prices inevitably follow. Silver and gold have been money for thousands of years, and still are. Paper substitutes have all failed, either slowly or rapidly, and they will continue to fail, unless governments and central banks responsibly manage the value of currencies (NOT likely).

Silver Market Update

Is silver becoming a bearmarket, or is a bottom pattern completing that will lead to a major new uptrend soon? That is the big conundrum facing investors and speculators in the sector and in this update it will become apparent that the situation must resolve itself with a decisive move soon, one way or the other.

Will Silver and Platinum Outperform Gold in the Near Future?

Summing up, the long-term picture in the USD market continues to appear a bit more bearish than not and the implications for the precious metals are generally positive. The silver-to-gold ratio chart suggests that silver is likely to outperform gold in the months to come, yet it should be kept in mind that this may require some time to happen. Additional short-term volatility has been seen in the platinum market, but this is not unusual.

Gold closed in New York at $1,622.80, the day before the holiday in the States yesterday. A quiet London pulled it back to $1,613.50 at the p.m. Fixing.

The euro stood at €1: $1.2502 after the Fix. Ahead of New York’s opening gold stood at $1,618.00 in the middle.

Under ATTACK

Do we want the TRUTH or LIES? Gold was ATTACKED by the Cartel today to prevent it from repeating last month’s violation of its “Rule #1” – i.e., “Thou shalt not let PMs soar when the Dow plunges.” Last month, they temporarily lost control when gold had a rare 4% surge with the Dow down 274 points, directly after a similarly horrible NFP report.

A Momentous Day

A momentous day, as the Spanish and Italian stock and bond markets are literally CRASHING. On the day the “Spanish Bank Bailout” was “approved” by the EU – Spanish 10-year yields have EXPLODED to 7.3%, and the IBEX stock index fell a whopping 5.7%. Of course, the “bailout” requires constitution of the ESM, which has not yet been ratified or funded, and won’t be for some time – if at all. Throw in the bankruptcy of Valencia – one of Spain’s largest “autonomous regions” – and you can see why few believe a bailout will ever be received, or that it will MATTER even if it does.

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.

The Silver Megathrust

Between 1970 and 1979, the silver price was increasing steadily from $1.50 to $6, before taking off in September 1979 from $10 to $50 within 5 months. During that bull cycle, demand for silver did not increase but actually declined (sharply in 1979). It was as late as 1983 when demand increased confidently from 12,000 to 27,000 tons per year until 2000 – yet the silver price was in a 20 year bear market during that time. In 2003, when silver started its new bull market, the demand actually dropped to 23,000 tons until 2005 – during which 2 years silver almost doubled from $4.50 to $8. Since 2005, demand is rising stronger than ever, having reached 33,000 tons in 2010, whereas the silver price is rising strongly as well.

What a surprise: FT says CFTC to drop silver investigation

But such an outcome would be completely consistent with a finding that the really big player in the silver market is not JPMorgan at all but the U.S. government acting through intermediary brokerage houses. After all, as he signed the legislation demonetizing silver in 1965, President Lyndon B. Johnson pledged that the U.S. government would rig the silver market if necessary to prevent the price from rising...

Silver Market Update

The outcome of the Greek vote at the weekend was not favorable for the markets, or for Precious Metals in particular. This is because it did not precipitate an immediate worsening of the acute crisis in Europe, and thus did not create the pressure needed to bring forward the major QE that must eventually come in order to delay Europe's eventual complete collapse. Why then have markets not caved in already? - because investors are "smoking the hopium pipe" and waiting for the Fed to pull a rabbit out of the hat at Wednesday's FOMC meeting, by making positive noises to the effect that QE3 is ready to be rolled out. What is likely to happen instead is that they will come out with the same old line about "being ready to act when the SHTF" but other than that remain vague and non-commital. If this is what they do then markets are likely to throw a tantrum and sell off, and the charts are indicating that it could be hard.

Silver, Gold and The Coming Deflation

Historically gold has made its significant gains, relative to other assets (as well as nominally), not during inflation, but during deflation (Note: I am using the terms inflation and deflation very loosely in this case). These significant gold rallies historically occur when value flees instruments such as stocks and certain commodities.

David Morgan: Seems the bottom for (gold & silver) mining equities is in...

I was recently interview by Jim Puplava and stated what we have been sending to our members. It seems the bottom for mining equities is in and may be tested one more time. The precious metals themselves also could be in a bottom formation currently, but the $26 level on silver and the $1550 level on gold MUST hold. David Morgan www.Silver-Investor.com

The Noose Is Tightening

The noose is tightening on the Powers that Be, as all attempts at MONEY PRINTING, MARKET MANIPULATION, and PROPAGANDA are failing. The GLOBAL economy – and BANKING SYSTEM – is failing, as have been the result of ALL fiat currency systems throughout history. And given that this is the ONLY time EVER when ALL global currencies are fiat –amidst a global population of seven billion people - the crash will dwarf all others in history.
