Global Gold and Silver Produced in 3 Years = Only the Interest on US Debt

The financial disaster taking place at the US costs one heck of a lot of gold and silver. In 2015, the US Federal Government paid $402 billion just to service the interest on its debt. The total value of global gold production in 2015 was $122 billion while that of silver was $14 billion. So the US could purchase 3 times the global gold and silver production in 2015, just by the interest on its debt.

Why Silver Prices Could Have Considerably More Upside Than Gold

When we take a step back and analyze the catalysts behind the move higher in precious metal spot prices, it’s silver prices that could have considerably more upside than gold. Today, we’ll lay out the case why physical silver could be on its way to $30 an ounce, which would represent a gain of nearly 60% from where physical silver is today.

SILVER - The Most Bullish Story Ever Told. Even JPMorgan Wants Higher Silver Prices

The big banks led by JPMorgan are trying to get out of their big paper short position & are not having much luck. They don’t want the price to go up until they have driven the price of silver down to the point the technical-fund holders sell to them & as they buy from these tech funds their short position is reduced. And the best part is that they want much higher silver prices one of these days.

Why the Dangerously Big Silver Short? Here's the Answer

Why would any banking institutions go so dangerously short silver? It’s profitable & they can get away with it. Because they are effectively the ONLY shorts & also as they’ve been able to build these positions, then subsequently push prices over the edge & cover positions for a profit. Controlling the price mechanism with dirt cheap leverage – Over and over again.

Buy Physical on Silver Price Dip, Futures Traders Need Some Patience

Seasonality plays a key role at this time of year, which has historically been the best time to buy gold and silver. Now could be a good time to look for buying opportunities on dips. Normally, I would also short silver for technical reasons, but because we are at a very strong time of year for the silver price, my stance is to be on sidelines for traders but buyers of physical silver to keep accumulating.

Every Single Move This Year Seems Silver And Gold Friendly - Especially Silver

“It’s very difficult to be bearish on silver and gold — especially silver, which has drawn particular interest from investors this year. With so much pricing momentum, and so many geopolitical and market factors blowing in its sails, there’s no reason to think silver won’t continue to post gains through the end of the year.” Events close-by could easily push the price of silver above $30.

Concentrated COMEX Silver Shorts - The Greatest Lie in the History of Market Regulation

Until the physical market overwhelms the COMEX silver concentrated short scam, the big shorts may continue to prevail, although they have been seriously underwater of late, for the first time ever. Being the key factor in silver and gold, it will be the resolution and eventual dissolution of the concentrated short position that will drive silver prices in the future. I encourage all to dig into this issue.

Further Surge in Silver and Gold will kill Commercial Traders

In contemplating what occurs next, will the silver and gold commercial traders succeed in turning prices lower & triggering off technical fund selling on the COMEX & also cool off ETF demand for physical metal? To be fair, either outcome, a price selloff or surge, must be considered possible, but recent developments raise the odds of a commercial failure in which prices surge, especially for silver.

The Mechanics Of Silver Manipulation - By Former NYMEX Trader

Here is how JPM manipulated the silver markets by selling the Silver contango during illiquid hours, used their deep pockets to push settlements, waited until margin calls made the large locals puke their positions. They do not have access to cheap money, political influence or the most physical silver in the world in a single vault at their disposal to create a squeeze.

Is Silver The Next One For Chinese Momentum Investors?

Individual investors tend to be most active when markets are rising, and have dominated past rallies in Chinese futures. Open interest in silver on the Shanghai Futures Exchange has been steadily increasing this year (ballooned from less than 200,000 contracts in 2012 to over 600,000 since April 2016), with open interest now roughly equal and equivalent in size to that of COMEX.

Americans Now Lead The World In Physical Silver Investment

The U.S. experienced a huge increase in silver bar demand in 2015 due to the inclusion of “Private rounds and bars” now in the data. So, all private silver bar and rounds sold are lumped into the Silver Bar category. Even though India ranked first place when it comes to silver bar demand, if we include Official Coin sales, the U.S. is now the global leader of physical silver investment.

JPMorgan's Stockpile of Physical Silver Guarantees Higher Silver Prices Ahead

The one factor that just about guarantees much higher silver prices is that JPMorgan Chase, has accumulated the largest privately owned stockpile of physical silver in world history over the past five years – 500 million ounces. All JPMorgan has to do to guarantee that silver prices will soar to the heavens is Nothing; specifically, not sell additional contracts of COMEX silver short on the next big rally.

Physical Silver Demand Booming Amid Strained Physical Supply: Perfect Storm Gets Stronger

Physical silver is in high demand for every purpose in which it can be used. While the most popular silver coins in the world are setting new sales records, entire nations are implementing silver dependent energy sources (solar) and the companies that can actually deliver the raw material are slowing or shutting down; this makes for a perfect storm in the silver market.

Sales Of Canadian Silver Maples Surge To Highest Record Ever

Last year, there was a huge spike in retail silver investment demand due to the supposed “Shemitah” or the collapse of the broader stock markets. Depite that, the Q1 2016 sales figures of the silver bullion coins were stunning to say the least. It is a big deal because Q1 2016 sales of Silver Maples topped the Q3 2015 record, without surging demand and product shortages.

Forget Short-Term Price Swings - Focus on Silver Market Trends & Global Economy

Focus on the continued disintegration of the U.S. and global financial system and economies. While precious metals investors are concerned about the short-term price movements in silver, the real focus should be on this amazing silver market trend. Physical Silver Bar and Coin demand jumped 24% in 2015 versus the prior year reaching a record 292.3 million oz.

The Historic Dow Jones - Silver Ratio Points To $300 Silver

When silver hit a high of $49 in April 2011, the Dow Jones-Silver ratio fell to 250/1 from a high of 2,500/1 in June 2001. I feel that now the ratio will likely fall lower than the 25/1 ratio set in 1980. The propped up stock markets, at some point, will finally resume their crash lower. If we assume that Dow falls to 7,000 points, a 25/1 Dow Jones-Silver ratio would suggest a $300 silver price.

Is Physical Silver About To Overrun Paper Or Do Old Indicators Matter Yet?

Paper markets have consistently fooled gold and silver speculators like hedge funds into going long or short at exactly the wrong time. But if this is indeed the long-awaited physical take-over of the precious metals markets, silver will not only fail to correct, it will go up faster than gold, bringing the gold/silver ratio down to more historically normal levels.

Silver Investment is a MUST due to Market Fundamentals

Many investors are more concerned about the short-term silver price movement than its long-term fundamentals. Here are some of the most important fundamental reasons to own physical silver. My analysis on the future value of silver is based on energy. This is much different from the forecasts by most of the precious metals analysts.

The Silver Market - One Investor Away from Implosion

1.6 million is the base number of investors in the US, who either acquire silver on an ongoing basis or who have acquired a small amount of physical silver in recent years. A confirmed small change in their current investment habits is taking place. Can you imagine the impact this small change would have on the silver market? Where would the silver come it from?
