So far, the latter concern has proved unfounded with public demand in China accelerating on lower prices and exceeding global mine output on its own. As well as Chinese demand, anecdotal evidence tells us that at these prices physical demand from the public has increased elsewhere, with gold sovereigns becoming scarce in London.

In Fed Up, Power tells a fictional story of blackmail involving high powered Federal Reserve traitors traders – involving gold, the PPT, and the insanity of government attempts to manipulate markets. I highly recommend all of the above, as well as numerous non-fictional books written by pro-Precious Metals, anti-establishment authors from our “shadow world” – like Dmitri Speck’s Gold Cartel; Carl Jarvis’ The United States of Dysfunction; and Gary Christenson’s Gold Value and Gold Prices.

It is silver derivatives and computer trading models introduced in the 1970&#039;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.

Specifically, if the futures pull back in B-C fashion after exceeding 17.240 by a tick or two, you should zoom down to the 5-minute chart to look for an uptrending ABC entry pattern.

Substantially higher deficit spending would necessarily require even more debt accumulation and the cycle would repeat itself. </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> Chris Marchese </div> </div> </div> <p class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: center; text-indent: 0.25in; margin: 0in 0in 8pt;" align="center"><span style="line-height: 107%; font-family: 'Verdana','sans-serif'; font-size: 10pt;">Part I: </span><a href="http://www.silverseek.com/article/tide-turning-precious-metals-14233"><span style="line-height: 107%; font-family: 'Verdana','sans-serif'; font-size: 10pt;"><span style="color: #0563c1;">Click Here</span></span></a><span style="line-height: 107%; font-family: 'Verdana','sans-serif'; font-size: 10pt;"></span></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 25th</span> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.silverseek.com/article/tide-turning-precious-metals-part-ii-14246" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Wed, 25 Mar 2015 21:07:13 +0000 admin 14246 at http://www.silverseek.com The Stock Crash To End All Stock Crashes http://www.silverseek.com/commentary/stock-crash-end-all-stock-crashes-14244 <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"> Here at the Miles Franklin Blog, we rarely – if ever – receive negative feedback.
