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.

How The Coming Silver Bubble Will Develop

While I respect anyone’s reasons for buying & holding silver, my mission has always been to help end the manipulation and be done with silver after that was accomplished & reflected in the price. And if history & logic win out, the silver manipulation must end, not the least because of the coming clash between paper & physical silver.

Silver Price-Fixing Conspiracy Theorists Lose Battle But Continue War

Despite legal arguments presented by dozens of appellants, the US Second Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that silver price manipulation theorists had legally failed to show that JPMorgan had manipulated the silver market. The alleged silver price fixing by JPMorgan may be headed to the Supreme Court

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’s Perfect Silver Manipulation Cannot Last Forever

HFT allows for manipulative tricks to be rolled out in a very clever way. It is no coincidence that JPMorgan’s silver manipulation strategy is so clever that most do not understand the mechanics; It is a perfect manipulation – But Manipulation cannot last forever.
