We wrote last week that the only difference between 2008 and today – aside from tens of trillions of debt and historic geopolitical tensions – was the PPT’s ability to manipulate equity markets higher. However, “Economic Mother Nature” is decidedly asserting herself; and consequently, TPTB are massively losing control of paper financial markets. Eventually, the physical gold and silver markets will be liberated as well, ending the Cartel’s disgusting, 15-year masking of reality. And with just $50 million of silver inventory on the Shanghai exchange, and U.S. Mint sales on pace for one of their best months ever, it’s just a matter of time before the Financial System’s Achilles Heel destroys it – permanently.

Contrary to mainstream belief, we have shouted from the rooftops that Western interest rates will go to zero as the investment community front runs universal “QE to Infinity,” guaranteed to be implemented by all Central banks as the global economy collapses.

Traders should take note of the fact that Wednesday’s high at 21.285 exceeded an external peak made a week ago by a single tick. This implies that the pullback since then is corrective and that it can be bought when the uptrend resumes.

Although I’m not one to be influenced by blogger buzz, if Silver is in fact developing thrust for a moon shot, the evidence should soon become apparent on the intraday charts. Most immediately, that would imply a pop through the p=21.325 midpoint Hidden Pivot shown (see inset). That would open a path to at least 22.070 , its D-target sibling. Gold stalled on a spike Monday at an analogous p, but the fact that it didn’t get past it means silver and gold futures are on roughly equal footing at the moment on the bull/bear scale. </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-article-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img src="http://silverseek.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/featured_article/imagefield_default_images/img-default.png" alt="" title="" class="imagecache imagecache-featured_article imagecache-default imagecache-featured_article_default" width="300" height="200" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-article-author"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Author(s):&nbsp;</div> Rick Ackerman, Rick&#039;s Picks </div> </div> </div> <p class="MsoNormal" style="margin: 0in 0in 10pt;"><a href="http://goldseek.com/news/RickAckerman/2014/7-2ra/2.png"><span style="line-height: 115%; font-family: 'Verdana','sans-serif'; font-size: 10pt;"><img src="http://goldseek.com/news/RickAckerman/2014/7-2ra/1.png" width="565" height="310" /></span></a></p><div class="field field-type-datestamp field-field-article-published-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Tuesday, July 1st</span> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://silverseek.com/article/silver-bulls-expanded-coverage-starts-today-13334" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Wed, 02 Jul 2014 02:38:55 +0000 Chris Mullen 13334 at http://silverseek.com Silver Market Update http://silverseek.com/commentary/silver-market-update-13328 <div class="field field-type-text field-field-article-snippet"> <div class="field-label">Snippet:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Latest COT data released on Friday shows an astounding ramp in Commercial short positions in silver that it believed to be unprecedented, and given that silver is now critically overbought after 14 up days in a row up till last Thursday, it is safe to assume this means trouble. </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-datestamp field-field-article-published-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Sunday, June 29th</span> </div> </div> </div> <p><span style="color: #000000;">Latest COT data released on Friday shows an astounding ramp in Commercial short positions in silver that it believed to be unprecedented, and given that silver is now critically overbought after 14 up days in a row up till last Thursday, it is safe to assume this means trouble.</span></p><p><a href="http://silverseek.com/commentary/silver-market-update-13328" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Sun, 29 Jun 2014 21:02:08 +0000 Clive Maund 13328 at http://silverseek.com COT Silver Report - June 27, 2014 http://silverseek.com/commentary/cot-silver-report-june-27-2014-13326 <div class="field field-type-text field-field-article-snippet"> <div class="field-label">Snippet:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> COT Silver Report - June 27, 2014 </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-datestamp field-field-article-published-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Friday, June 27th</span> </div> </div> </div> <table class="MsoNormalTable" style="margin: auto auto auto 4.65pt; width: 551px; border-collapse: collapse; mso-padding-alt: 0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-yfti-tbllook: 1184;" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"><tbody><tr style="height: 15.75pt; mso-yfti-irow: 0; mso-yfti-firstrow: yes;"><td style="background: black; border-width: 1pt 1pt medium; border-style: solid solid none; border-color: windowtext black #f0f0f0 windowtext; padding: 0in 5.4pt; width: 413pt; height: 15.75pt;" colspan="6" valign="bottom" nowrap="nowrap" width="551"><p class="MsoNormal" style="margin: 0in 0in 0pt; text-al</td></tr></tbody></table><p><a href="http://silverseek.com/commentary/cot-silver-report-june-27-2014-13326" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Fri, 27 Jun 2014 19:28:45 +0000 SilverCOTReport 13326 at http://silverseek.com COMEX – Why it’s Corrupt http://silverseek.com/commentary/comex-%E2%80%93-why-it%E2%80%99s-corrupt-13323 <div class="field field-type-text field-field-article-snippet"> <div class="field-label">Snippet:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> It is one thing to label (libel?) the world’s most important precious metals exchange as the most corrupt; but perhaps quite another to prove it in terms beyond reasonable doubt.

If this is indeed so, we should see a surge today that surpasses the distinctive external peak at 19.825 (see inset) from May 22.

Till then traders as well as investors will use every rise of exit their silver investments. </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-article-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img src="http://silverseek.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/featured_article/imagefield_default_images/img-default.png" alt="" title="" class="imagecache imagecache-featured_article imagecache-default imagecache-featured_article_default" width="300" height="200" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-article-author"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Author(s):&nbsp;</div> Chintan Karnani, Insignia Consultants </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://67.19.64.18/news/2014/6-12cks/1.jpg"><img src="http://67.19.64.18/news/2014/6-12cks/2.jpg" /></a></p><p class="MsoNormal" style="margin: 0in 0in 10pt;"><strong><span style="font-size: medium;"><span style="font-family: Calibri;">OTHER POINTS FOR CONSIDERATION<span style="mso-tab-count: 11;"> </span><span style="mso-tab-count: 4;"> </span></span></span></strong></p><p>&nbsp;</p><div class="field field-type-datestamp field-field-article-published-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Thursday, June 12th</span> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://silverseek.com/article/silver-technical-update-13269" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Thu, 12 Jun 2014 14:38:01 +0000 Chris Mullen 13269 at http://silverseek.com Silver hovers tantilizingly close to Dow Theory guru Richard Russell’s take-off price of $19.25 http://silverseek.com/commentary/silver-hovers-tantilizingly-close-dow-theory-guru-richard-russell%E2%80%99s-take-price-1925-13264 <div class="field field-type-text field-field-article-snippet"> <div class="field-label">Snippet:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Dow theory guru Richard Russell has recently gone public in stating that $19.25 an ounce is the price silver must beat to start its next upward leg, and we are tantalizingly close to exceeding that figure as this article is published today. </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-datestamp field-field-article-published-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Wednesday, June 11th</span> </div> </div> </div> <p><span style="color: #000000;">Dow theory guru Richard Russell has recently gone public in stating that $19.25 an ounce is the price silver must beat to start its next upward leg, and we are tantalizingly close to exceeding that figure as this article is published today. </span></p><p><a href="http://silverseek.com/commentary/silver-hovers-tantilizingly-close-dow-theory-guru-richard-russell%E2%80%99s-take-price-1925-13264" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Wed, 11 Jun 2014 13:00:12 +0000 Peter Cooper 13264 at http://silverseek.com U.S. Bank’s Silver Short Positions send Buy Signal http://silverseek.com/article/us-bank%E2%80%99s-silver-short-positions-send-buy-signal-13257 <div class="field field-type-text field-field-article-snippet"> <div class="field-label">Snippet:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> In early June, U.S. banks trading future-contracts at the COMEX, only held a total of 13,234 contracts in net short positions, which equals 2,057 tons of silver forward-sales and depicts the lowest value since Goldreporter started analyzing the monthly data 5 years ago (see chart).
