The Shine of Silver Or the Glitter of Gold - Brightest of the two in Years Ahead

Gold is the preeminent monetary metal & throughout history, has projected the most enduring images of wealth. Silver is in its shadows, but as an asset, it contains similar wealth-protecting qualities, perhaps with even greater return potential. Here’s why, silver, a quasi-industrial metal with a rich monetary history, may be about to step out of gold’s shadow & shine brightest in the years ahead.

Silver seems ready for Take-Off - Do have Enough Stacked-Up?

Unlike its big brother, gold, physical silver is coveted for both investment purposes and industrial usage. Right now, silver prices seem poised to really take-off sharply after being in a bit of a slump lately, in other words, it’s the perfect time to load up on this precious metal while it’s down. Here are some good reasons why silver should be on every investor’s radar.

Silver is 8 times Cheaper than should be - Buy before the Discount Disappears

The gold-silver ratio has only hit the critical level of 80, just four times in the last three decades. Every time it has, silver went on to have a big rally. But silver’s headed even higher. That’s because the gold-silver ratio is still far too high. It should be closer to 9:1. That’s a bold call, to say the least. It means silver is eight times cheaper than it should be. This number’s based on a law of nature.

Excessive Shorts are the Best Buy Signals for Gold and Silver Prices

Gold and silver short positions have soared to record extremes in recent weeks. Traders are hyper-bearish, and betting heavily for more downside. But gold and silver soon soared on short-covering buying following all past episodes of excessive short selling. There’s nothing more bullish for gold and silver than extreme shorts! Interestingly, silver’s situation today is even more bullish than gold’s!

Silver Price Slam-down Suggests - Something Big is About to Happen

The big silver price smashes in late June & July 7th revolve around a coordinated effort to reduce legacy short positions in the silver market. Something big is about to happen. The take-down style we’ve seen in the last two weeks tends to be followed by delivery of large quantities of physical gold and silver to the banks in the subsequent delivery month. I expect some major fireworks pretty soon.

Massive Short Covering in Silver Futures to Catapult Prices Higher

There is nothing more bullish for silver than excessive silver futures shorts. These are guaranteed near-future buying! And staying short heading into a likely rate hike after silver has surged after recent Fed rate hikes is like playing Russian roulette. So the pressure on these guys to cover soon is big and growing. Their short covering will push silver high enough to entice longs to return en masse too.

Fundamentals Build a case for Silver Bull Market while Hedge funds Build Bearish Bets

Hedge funds are making a lot of bearish bets on silver. But keep in mind that hedge funds are often wrong. What do you suppose will happen if and when they have to cover those bearish bets? I’d say silver could go ballistic! I’m watching what is going on in the world’s silver ETFs. I’m also watching the mountain of forces that are piling up to push the metal higher.

Silver - The Kryptonite to the Banking and Financial System

Why is silver the kryptonite to the banking and financial system? Gold, while the market has been proven to be rigged as well, has at least been able to climb higher than in 1980. The current global “price” of gold does not reflect it’s true value, however, it is still higher than 37 years ago. Silver is 66% cheaper than it was in 1980. Why is that? How can that be?

Weak Silver Demand & Record Shorts - The Cartel is Winning the Manipulation Game Both Sides

The Cartel has been quite successful in manipulating silver prices (and gold) down ever since 2011. Every major rise has been slammed with unimaginable record paper shorts ever since. The “TRUE Measure” of the Cartel’s success at manipulating the bullion markets is that it has now succeeded in manipulating the minds of the physical gold and silver investors. Here’s the HOW & WHY.

A Massive New Rally in Silver Prices could take the Gold

The S&P 500 is up 5.77%, riding a wave of Trump-mentum. Gold is doing better, with an 8.47% gain. But silver is sprinting, with a 13.5% gain. If silver prices keep up this pace, that would work out to a 65% gain for the year. Silver is ready to run — the starter pistol is cocked. The race is beginning, and silver prices could take the gold. Investors should get out of the way, or ride this rally for all it’s worth.

The Major Distinctions & Implications of Gold v/s Silver Investing

Gold and Silver – Both are “precious” metals, meaning their occurrence in the earth’s crust is rare. But when it comes to investing in gold vs. silver, there are 5 important distinctions to be aware of. These differences can supercharge your portfolio—or make it a victim. Here are the five differences to know about gold vs. silver, with special emphasis on investment implications.

Why Buy Silver? Top 10 Reasons To Invest In Silver Bullion

Silver just might be the buying opportunity of the decade. It’s hard to find an asset with a greater distortion between price and fundamentals. Not only is it a good hedge against crisis, the price will be forced up by a perfect storm of fundamental factors. Here are compelling reasons to add physical silver bullion to your portfolio (and only one is because the price will rise).

Best Bets, Concerns & Risks When Trading the Silver Market

Silver is in for a rough few months ahead as the volatility is likely to be fairly severe. I believe that the Silver markets have probably bottomed longer-term, and with this being the case if you have the ability to take a non-leveraged position, perhaps you should. Commodity markets in general should do fairly well, especially commodity currencies.

Industrial Usage, ETP's & Physical Demand will help Silver Prices Take-off

We believe silver prices will be better bid later in 2017. We also base our expectations on solid fundamentals, as mine supply is likely to contract while industrial and jewelry demand should increase. Commerzbank thinks the market will have to see increased investor demand in exchange-traded products and physical demand for jewelry and bullion coins to push prices up.

Reasons for Silver Demand to Explode have never been Stronger

The reasons for silver demand to explode – amidst an environment of verified peak production, and historically low above-ground, available for sale inventories, have never, in my very strong view, been stronger. Which is why, I might add, the opportunity to make a year-end tax swap, at an historically high gold/silver ratio of 69, may make sense to many investors.

Metals Zoom On Projected Massive Infrastructure Spending - How Long Before Silver Takes-Off?

Metals are surging due to projected industrial expansion. To argue that a massive infrastructure spending program will be beneficial for lead, zinc & copper prices, but immaterial for silver prices, is as ridiculous as claiming that overvalued stock prices can continue to surge amidst the “gigantic pink elephant” that is surging global interest rates and plunging worldwide currencies.

India's Shift from Gold to Silver would Result in a Massive Jump in Silver Prices

India has been trying to reduce its demand for imported gold through a number of means & may soon permanently reduce gold imports. A return to silver for consumers in India may be on the cards. Even a small substitution from gold to silver would result in a massive increase in silver prices. A mere 10% reallocation from gold investment to silver in India would nearly double world silver demand.

Silver Bull Alive & Well Despite Recent Correction-Weakened Sentiment

Silver has spent most of the third quarter drifting sideways to lower. This has naturally weighed on sentiment, with investors & speculators alike growing more bearish during recent months. Yet silver remains way undervalued relative to its primary driver gold, so the young silver bull market is far from over. Silver’s upside from here is still massive as it mean reverts higher with gold.

Will The Price of Silver Take a Breather Before Another Rally Kicks Off?

The price of silver has emerged as the perfect compensation for those whom the market inflicted losses last year. The price of silver appears set for a correction, which suggests the overbuying activity that took place in June could witness several cash outs in the coming weeks. But the overall direction of commodity prices suggests that this could just be a breather before another rally kicks off.

Surging Silver Demand Ensures Higher Prices for Bullion & Mining Shares

In 2015, the global silver deficit — more silver demand than mine supply — was about 130 million ounces, made up by selling stockpiles & inventory. According to Société Générale, silver supply in 2016 is likely to decrease another 9%. As the magnitude of the problem sinks in, I expect that more of the big-money players will rush into silver. And it’ll make for a pricing tsunami.
