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.

Can the Price of Silver (the Year's Top Performer) Continue to Rally?

With the price of silver up nearly 40% year-to-date, investors are wondering whether it can continue. Experts say it may have more room to run, particularly as global interest rates continue to stay negative. It wouldn’t be inconceivable to see a silver supply shortage if there was heightened demand, & in that case, a silver to gold ratio of 20 to 1 (or lesser) is not an impossibility.

Young Silver Bull Faces Silver Futures Driven Correction

Silver futures speculators have ramped their silver longs to extreme record levels. This has left silver very overbought, at risk of a considerable near-term selloff once something inevitably spooks the hyper-leveraged futures speculators into unwinding their excessive longs. But far from being threats, mid-bull corrections are offer investors the best buying opportunities within ongoing bull markets.

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.

Five Years That Have Changed The Silver Market Forever

Everything from COMEX silver warehouse movement, deliveries against futures contracts, changes in the big silver ETF, SLV, sales of silver coins from the U.S. and Royal Canadian Mints point to the massive accumulation of silver by JPMorgan. They are positioned to make $100 billion or more in a runaway silver market. They will make $1 billion on a $2 rise in silver prices.

Something Broke In The U.S. Silver Market

After looking over all the figures, it seems as if something broke in the U.S. Silver Market this year. By that, I mean the normal supply and demand forces no longer make sense. I believe this stemmed from the massive amount of physical silver investment demand beginning in June as financial and geopolitical events pushed the retail silver market into severe shortages.

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. It has to do with avoiding SEC shareholding requirements and moving silver around that might be needed elsewhere. But generally speaking, I don’t have any reason to doubt that the SLV doesn’t have the silver to back the shares. I know a lot of people doubt it.

Silver Prices Remain Deeply Undervalued - But Not For Long

The bottom line is silver prices are deeply undervalued today relative to prevailing gold prices. Even if the silver/gold ratio merely returned to normal-year average levels, and gold stopped rallying, the coming gains in silver prices will be big. That gold itself is mean reverting higher now, holds great potential for silver prices to literally multiply.

Turning $1 Billion into $5 Billion by Buying Silver

Aside from the benefit of being in position to profit by fivefold or more, real silver provides an unquestioned investment alternative in a financial world primarily denominated in record debt & counterparty interdependence. Silver can go out of & come into investment favor, but when held in the right form, it can never go bankrupt or default. Simply stated, it’s real & spectacular.

The Biggest Silver Haul in History

The big buyer is exploiting a loophole in the law that requires the Mint to produce to whatever the demand might be. So JPMorgan artificially depresses silver prices via short sales on the COMEX and then requests that the US Mint sell it all the Silver Eagles it can produce. JPM wants all the silver it can get its hands on.

Love & Fear Trade Buying Will Drive Silver & Gold Higher. . .This Year!

Despite their recent underperformance, David H. Smith, Senior Analyst with The Morgan Report, remains bullish on precious metals, especially silver and palladium, as the “love trade” heats up and the global economy adds more debt to the system. Investors should take advantage of the regular volatility native to silver prices.

Silver Ready to Run

Silver looks to be on the verge of a major new up-leg, finally emerging from the past couple years’ ugly sentiment wasteland. And while investors’ ongoing silver stealth buying continues, it’s been modest. So there is vast room for capital inflows to accelerate dramatically as gold mean reverts higher.

David Morgan's Secret to Being Grateful, Even at $17 Silver

People need to keep in mind that prices go up & down in all markets. Second, know that fundamentals of owning gold & silver have not changed. Third, remember why they bought it in the first place. And lastly, ensure that they are diversified properly, meaning they need to own the right amount of physical metal for their age & objectives.

Is a Silver Supply Shortage on the Horizon?

It’s in part because of the many uses, both as an investment and industrial metal, that some silver market watchers think at some point — perhaps in the near future — demand for the metal will exceed supply, creating a shortage. Silver also has myriad technological and medical applications.

JPMorgan Holds Highest Amount Of Physical Silver In History

JPMorgan realized that it was on the wrong side of the trade, after having discovered how tight the physical silver market was. Consequently, the bank had to crush the silver price with their HFT tricks in order to reverse the trend. By doing so, JPM could regain control over the silver market.

The Curious Case for Silver and Why Prices are not Higher

A major new buyer has entered the market purchasing as much as 20% of the total world production this year for investment purposes – follow the money and add some silver. And to top it off, at the moment it costs more to produce silver than to purchase it.
