Silver and Physical Inventory Part 2 – The Big Silver ETF

Do you believe the ETF’s are actually backed by physical metal? We have some turnover in the SLV and it is counter intuitive.

An oil crash makes the world less stable. Oil has steadily been falling from $105 to $57 in just six months. As you probably know by now, the move in oil has been more of a supply story than a demand story. Is it bullish or bearish for the US? It’s not a hard question to answer. People are making it hard.
