I have drawn a horizontal line through its most significant peaks occurring in June 1981, March 1985, November 2008 and March 2015. Looking more closely at these peaks, the 1981 peak heralded a mere 4 month decline in the Dollar, but the 1985 peak was the precursor to a 7 year decline and the 2008 one to a 3 year decline. It is the perhaps no surprise that the most recent peak last year has so far watched over a 13 month decline. </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">Monday, May 2nd</span> </div> </div> </div> <p class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: justify; margin: 0in 0in 10pt;"><span style="line-height: 115%; font-family: 'Verdana','sans-serif'; font-size: 10pt; color: #000000;">This is an excerpt of the weekend update sent to subscribers on Sunday.

This is especially valuable when working with miners that operate in restrictive tax jurisdictions and under governments with high levels of corruption. Silver Wheaton’s contract with Brazilian miner Vale, for instance, stipulates that Vale is solely responsible for paying taxes in Brazil, which are among the highest in Latin America.

Ironically, the big gain in ETF inventories may be metal coming from Asia. Metal flows from where it is cheaper to where it is priced more richly. If speculators relentlessly push up the ask price on the ETFs, then they will draw in metal from where it is cheaper. To underscore our point about abundance, isn’t this a sign of it? The marginal use of metal is to go into paper vehicles designed to let asset managers speculate on the price of silver using an equity. </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://www.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> Keith Weiner </div> </div> </div> <p>We came across an article today, talking about <a href="http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2016-04-26/silver-supply-trouble-shows-why-momentum-for-rally-is-building">silver supply troubles</a>.

I have also marked the big divergence that occurred from 2001 to 2011 (the first phase of the silver bull market). This is the biggest period of divergence over the last 100 years. Since silver and interest rate are positively correlated in the long run, it is almost guaranteed that they will move together (up) during the next phase of the silver bull market.

Silver has surged in recent weeks. Its impressive move of nearly 80 cents on April 19th was duly noted, an echo from the Shanghai gongs. Silver easily surpassed technical resistance at $16.20/oz. The next big test is resistance at $18 per ounce. The brief peaks in early 2015 will not stop the Silver march upward.

If the gold silver ratio is 70, short 70 ounces of silver for every ounce of gold you buy. 70 would be an attractive entry point (assuming momentum dies by then). If the ratio rises to 83, then you have a gain of over 18.5%.

Eric Fier , CPG, P.Eng, President &amp; CEO stated, &quot;Las Chispas is a very exciting brownfields exploration story. The project area consists of a district size target with multiple historic surface and underground mines that reportedly produced an estimated 100 million ounces of silver and 200 thousand ounces of gold between 1880 and 1930. Reported average production grades from limited public information were approximately 15 grams per tonne (gpt) gold and 1,700 grams per tonne (gpt) silver over widths of 1 to 5 metres. Our initial underground channel sampling of exposed mineralization has shown grades up to 15.1 gpt Au and 1,340 gpt Ag over 1.3 metres. To our knowledge, all mineralized zones in the district, which include multiple epithermal veins, have not been previously drilled. The underground rehabilitation program will help further assess the potential for near surface deposits and deeper extensions of mineralization. A majority of the underground workings have been inaccessible for over 80 years, and historic records suggest several previously developed areas were not mined due to closure around 1930. The Company is well financed with over $6.5 million and the 2016 exploration expenditures are expected to be in the range of $1 to $1.2 million .&quot; </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://www.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-link field-field-article-source"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Source:&nbsp;</div> <a href="http://www.silvercrestmetals.com" target="_blank">SilverCrest Metals Inc.</a> </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> SilverCrest Metals Inc. </div> </div> </div> <p id="yui_3_18_1_1_1456930007941_2361"><a href="http://finance.yahoo.com/q?s=sil.v&amp;ql=1"> <strong id="yui_3_18_1_1_1456930007941_2460"><img src="http://l3.yimg.com/bt/api/res/1.2/.AN9KK3v7X79MGvmN8xicA--/YXBwaWQ9eW5ld3NfbGVnbztxPTg1/http://photos.newswire.ca/images/20160302_C6627_PHOTO_EN_633468.jpg" alt="http://l3.yimg.com/bt/api/res/1.2/.AN9KK3v7X79MGvmN8xicA--/YXBwaWQ9eW5ld3NfbGVnbztxPTg1/http://photos.newswire.ca/images/20160302_C6627_PHOTO_EN_633468.jpg" style="display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;" /></strong></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">Wednesday, March 2nd</span> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.silverseek.com/article/silvercrest-announces-historic-las-chispas-mine-rehabilitation-and-drilling-huasabas-project" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Wed, 02 Mar 2016 14:33:04 +0000 admin 15346 at http://www.silverseek.com Can Silver See A Lower Low Without Gold and GDX? http://www.silverseek.com/article/can-silver-see-lower-low-without-gold-and-gdx-15344 <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"> For weeks we have been looking towards the 16 level as the point silver could be seen as breaking out.

However, what we also know about silver is that it is the most volatile of the metals and often likes to come on strong from behind.

This is an unprecedented industry-wide phenomenon. In recent history, putting bullion coins on allocation has only occasionally been done by the U.S. Mint.

With silver production waning, demand could overwhelm supply. According to his work the bottom may already be in place in the PMs market. The following scenario could occur: silver gaps higher several dollars - silver eagles / maple leafs sell out over night - premiums on pre-&#039;65 silver triple. Major silver suppliers are reporting big premiums in pre-&#039;65 silver, over $4.00 per ounce, a startling high figure. Bull markets oftentimes require a base building period - David Morgan thinks that could be currently underway. But even if the bottom is not in place, the precious metals remain the diversification tool, du jour for every investment portfolio.

At the time, I was too “green” to fully understand the state of the global economy and markets; and frankly, it wasn’t until Alan Greenspan turned on the monetary spigots in January 2001 – taking the Fed Funds rate from 6.5% to 1.0%, where it was held from June 2003 through July 2004 – that I realized something was terribly wrong. </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">Monday, August 24th</span> </div> </div> </div> <p><span style="color: #000000;">Back in April 2000, whilst still working at Salomon Smith Barney as an oilfield service and drilling analyst, I sold my last internet stock – Caprock Communications; which, aside from the Precious Metal miners I held from 2002-2011, turned out to be the last stock I’ve ever owned.</span></p><p><a href="http://www.silverseek.com/commentary/just-2008-much-much-worse-and-irreversible-14794" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Mon, 24 Aug 2015 18:20:38 +0000 Andrew Hoffman 14794 at http://www.silverseek.com Gold or Silver Shortages? http://www.silverseek.com/article/gold-or-silver-shortages-14793 <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"> A big pet peeve of mine is when an article is published talking about a shortage in silver or gold.
