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.

Silver Market - Most Suppressed Market Of All To Witness A Historic Shortage

Based on several factors, it is eminently possible that we are on the cusp of ignition, of the biggest bull market in financial market history; which in my view, will be focused on “anti-fiat monies” like gold and silver. But nowhere is shortage more likely to occur than in the most suppressed market of all, Silver, where inevitably, the breakout above $50/oz, will commence a new phase in history.

The Real Reason Behind Gold And Silver Manipulation

Declining energy production including the falling EROI will destroy the valuation of most paper and physical assets. Gold and silver will be two of the safest stores of value to own in the future. I have no idea how high the value of these metals will reach, but they will vastly outperform the majority of most stock, bonds and real estate.

The Decline and Fall of Silver Backwardation

The market price of silver is at or above its fundamental. Could the market price go up from here? We would almost expect it to if the gold price continues to rise towards its fundamental price (over $100 above the market price). The story of silver shortage (and backwardation) is over. Even the Dec cobasis fell from near 1% in the middle of last month, to below zero now.

India's Physical Silver Demand Will Destroy COMEX Paper Rigged Markets

India continues to import record amounts of silver. In addition, Comex Registered silver inventories continue to fall, even as two large transfers were reported over the past two days. At some point, the physical silver demand will totally overrun the highly leveraged paper (manipulated) markets. I would imagine India could be one of the leading factors.

Is Silver Intentionally Being Drained And Diverted From The Retail System?

If silver that could be used to stamp silver eagles to meet demand is being exported to India – in the context of the registered silver stock at the Comex dropping like a dead fly, it suggests perhaps that the authorities are intentionally draining the retail silver distribution system in the U.S in order to meet demand obligations offshore.

The Coming Silver Shortage - Ted Butler

How much longer can the COMEX-orchestrated price, delay the physical silver shortage and crunch to come? I am confident that once a wholesale physical silver shortage kicks in, that shortage can’t be further contained by derivatives trading & most likely will have to burn itself out the old-fashioned way – by allowing the market to discover the true clearing price.

When The Global Silver Shortage Arrives… It Will Be Too Late

Investors need to realize the market has suffered several retail silver shortages since 2008. Understand that these were “Tremors” for the massive earthquake to come. Who wants to wait for an earthquake to get prepared?? These huge spikes in retail (and minor wholesale) demand are blinking red lights & sirens going off warning of the major global silver run in the future.

A Major Silver Shortage Must and Will Occur

With plunging base metal prices, given that majority of silver production is by-product from base metals; its entirely possible that global silver production declines 25%-50% over next 3-5 years, unless prices significantly increase. Silver industrial demand excluding silverware, jewelry, coins & bars is forecast to increase by 27% over the next 5 years.

The Inevitable Upcoming Silver Shortage

The combined demand from Indian silver imports, U.S. Silver Eagles and Royal Canadian Mint Silver Maple Leafs – i.e., the three largest sources of physical silver demand, aside from unreported Chinese imports – have increased by an astonishing 198%, tripling from 93 million ounces, 7 years ago, to an estimated 279 million ounces now.

A Real Surprise about Silver Manipulation and the CFTC’s Role in it

After more than 25 years, I know better than to place all hope for ending the silver manipulation on any one government agency. But the coming silver shortage will accomplish that in time anyway. Still, the apparent interest on the part of the GAO should not be minimized in its potential importance.

Suing JPMorgan and the COMEX For Precious Metals Manipulation

Presenting a guide for how & why JPMorgan & the COMEX (owned by the CME Group) should be sued for their manipulation of gold and silver (& copper, too). I am certain that the coming physical silver shortage will end price manipulation, but I see nothing wrong with trying to hasten that day.

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.

I Own Silver Because Of The Coming Silver Shortage

If you become convinced, as I am convinced, of the likelihood of a future Silver Shortage, don’t try to time it at all – Put yourself in a position where the timing doesn’t matter; only the shortage itself.
