Silver - The Market's Stepchild will have a Major Move before the Month is Out

Right now we have the absolute PERFECT STORM lying right in front of us as investors. With stock valuations now higher than any time other than 2007 & 2001, bonds in a bubble, cryptocurrencies in nosebleed zones, and with silver depressed, the big investment pools have few places to go other than “value plays.” Silver is, in my opinion, just that & will have a major move before the month is out.

Why has the Price of Silver been Suppressed to this Extreme Degree?

The price of silver has since been driven down 70% from its temporary high and the price of gold has been driven down nearly 40% from its temporary high. More total perversion of market fundamentals. Why has the price of silver been suppressed, going back 100 years? Why has the silver market been ruthlessly attacked, to a far greater degree than even the gold market? Here’s WHY.

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 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.

Gold and Silver Investor Sentiment Sours Exactly when a Turnaround is Imminent

Commercial traders such as banks have engaged in “huge short covering,” moving into more bullish positioning, according to Commodity Futures Trading Commission data. Meanwhile, the more momentum-driven funds have sold off a large chunk of their paper silver to them. History has shown this to be a bullish indicator for the coming reversal in silver prices.

For How Long will Gold and Silver Continue to be "Rigged Markets"?

The discussion surrounding the likelihood of gold and silver being “rigged markets” has been rendered moot by way of the countless flash crashes – More recently, the one in silver on Friday July 7. Had that flash crash occurred in stocks, they would have cancelled the trades. In the silver market, the damage done by the intervention was successful in destroying morale. How long will this continue?

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.

The End To Manipulation Of Silver Prices Is Near

The rising attention of manipulation of silver prices by silver bullion banks is putting a stop to their behavior. Banks now fear being accused of market manipulation by regulators, which has resulted in banks being cautious of adding liquidity during the daily auction. The result is that the silver market is now unpredictable, and it’s finally free to discover its true value.

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 Prices Hold at Critical Level Amid Most Bearish Conditions

Hedge funds & other speculative traders as of last week held more bearish bets against silver prices than any time outside the summer 2015 peak. Silver prices found support [in early May] near $16.00. Something also changed in the silver market in May as US Silver Eagle sales have surged compared to the previous month. Also, the fundamentals in the US economy continue to disintegrate.

Despite Irrational Selloff; Fundamentals Support Higher Silver Prices

Within the past month, silver has gone from being one of the best-performing assets in financial markets to giving away almost all of its gains this year, but one mining executive remains optimistic on the precious metal during this volatile period. Precious metals will see higher volatility in prices, while markets will remain relatively range-bound until fundamentals come back into focus.

Long-Term Prospects for Gold and Silver Unchanged, Despite Temporary Weakness

Given the selloff in recent weeks, silver is now up around 1-2% year-to-date, giving up most of its gains for the year, and gold is up around 5-6% – still positive though well off its double-digit gains into mid-April. I think what we’re seeing is not a massive move away from gold or silver, but a very short-term reaction. The long-term bullish outlook based on a lot of fundamental drivers remains unchanged.

Buying Mania Will Push Silver Prices Much Higher

Even though the silver price and precious metals sentiment have fallen considerably, the market has no clue just how undervalued the shinny metal truly is. When the buying mania from the Institutions, Hedge Funds, Retail & Physical investors comes in to the market, watch as the Dow-Jones-Silver ratio falls back towards 50/1 from the current 1,200/1 & the silver price hits a all-time new high.

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.

The Calm In The Precious Metals Market Before The Silver Storm

The word out on the street, as it pertains the precious metals retail sales market, is that investors are no longer waiting on the price of silver to fall to start buying, rather they are now waiting to see what happens to the broader markets. Unfortunately, trying to time the market crash and purchase silver when the situation gets really ugly will likely not work out as many expect.

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.

March 2017 brings a Crucial Inflection Point for Silver Price Rally

Right now, the silver price has arrived at a very important inflection point where two leading trend lines ‘meet’. This is, by far, one of the most important price levels for silver. March 2017 will be a very important month for the silver market. Silver investors should pay close attention to the $18.50 level. If that is broken to the upside, the real test is the $21 level.

Silver Demand in India Slammed after Demonetisation

Silver imports by India, one of the world’s top buyers, will probably shrink this year to the lowest since 2012 as the government cracks down on black money, farmers struggle for cash & stockpiles remain ample. Purchases from overseas plunged 60% to about 3,000 metric tons last year & will contract further in 2017. Investment demand for silver will continue to fare badly too.

Silver Stocks to Soar Backed by Massive Bull Run in Silver Prices

Silver stocks are a place investors aren’t paying much attention to. With fundamentals in the silver market getting better, silver prices could soar. This is going to give a boost to silver stocks. Silver stocks are selling for literally pennies on the dollar. In the coming bull run on silver stocks, a lot of money is to be made. Investors could make massive returns.

Silver Market Set Up For Much Higher Price Move Than Gold

Because the fundamentals show that precious metals investment demand has put a great deal more pressure on the silver supply than gold… and by a long shot. Here are the three crucial reasons why the silver price will outperform the gold price.
