    Here’s a question that might have you pondering: Is gold a commodity? More importantly, are we doing a disservice to the gold industry by calling gold a commodity? These may sound like silly...

But but but, this guy just said, "Gold fetishists have fared much better - the metal has been hitting all-time highs - but one of their main reasons for owning it is that it’s the undollar. Once it becomes clear that quantitative easing is not killing the dollar, the true believers in gold may begin to have second thoughts. The fact that gold has underperformed many other commodities for several months suggests that it’s happening already."

I think I just farted out braincells reading that. Do they actually believe the crap they are putting out, or is it just that they never check the fundamental's anymore?

They call it a new paradigm... then I look at their forecasted metals prices through 2014 and I laugh.  It is the same with all the major firms predicting unrealistically low prices for all precious metals and base metals indefinately.  They say supply shortages and inflation on one hand, and then their forecasts show declining metals prices.  *head explode*

Yes, they can envision a "new paradigm" for silver --- as long as it remains safely within every one of their OLD paradigms.

Mind bottling, even. Is ANYONE here remotely surprised by this?

I've been saying for some time now the Gold/Silver ratio will be thrown on its head and WILL overshoot even THAT mean. (think 50:1 silver/gold ratio instead of gold/silver ratio. I'm not saying it will hit 50:1 and stay there, I'm just saying... think about the possibility.)

So we'll hit peak production circa 2012E... meanwhile demands growing and diverging from spply... Then the U.S. geological society predicts Silver (Ag) will be the first element exctinct from the periodic table by 2020 so... yeah...

Siver for 10+ more years for me, bitchez.

My price target is $50-54 / oz.  Long futures 'till at least then. 

Action today was spectacular.  In a way, I hope Blythe does raid tomorrow, so I can get some more.  It's odd to be both happy and sad.

That (SGR of even 1) I doubt tekh-blythe, but I have enough silver to celebrate as well should your prediction come true.

I still like gold's price going way up when paper gold defaults.

I'm keeping both gold & silver!

I'll post again here for those who may have missed it:

The Mint is back selling the 2010 silver quarter sets after taking them down from the website.  (Mint product: SV2)  The previous price was $32.99 as I recall.

The pricing is still very attractive for several reasons.  You all can figure out most of them, but for the tin-foil-hat crowd these are numismatic coins.   The possibility that they would become illegal to own is very slim to nonexistent.  

There is a tad  over 0.90 ounce of silver in the set (regular content of silver for pre-1965 coinage).   The Mint charges $4.95 for any purchase so that is all the charge for any size order. At $39.95 per set there isn't much downside.

I've got mine, so get what you want:

Ted Butler's mentor Izzy Friedman said there'd be a point in the future when silver and gold would equal each other, 1:1. He also said to buy 2 big green monster boxes of silver eagles and put them underneath your bed and forget about them, and one of these days with the collapse in real estate you will be able to trade those 2 boxes for a condo in a Trump building. When TSHTF and most fiat curriencies have to be retired and the new ones tied to a gold/silver/oil standard, Izzy will be right. Physical Ag is already close to being extinct from the LBMA and COMEX warehouses. Get your 2 boxes ASAP. If you don't , you may be extinct element of the middle class.

It appears big buyers of silver ARE leaving the COMEX.  March 2010 deliveries of silver were over 20Moz, yet March 2011 were less than 10Moz.  Has demand dropped by half over the last year?  I don't think so.........

Ok, no excuses, I like Ann and should have added a disclaimer that it was an attempt, albeit not entirely successful, at humor. I mean, I can actually see her making a joke along similar lines, just better than I did because I did the Tonight Show version.

Why would anybody read Coulter, or Limbaugh, or Al Franken, or any of these stupid blowhards?  You don't learn shit from them, why would you waste any time listening to them?

The only salient difference between the 2 parities today is their rhetoric, they do the same goddamned thing so why are you listening to a cheerleader for any one of them?

here's some Sparky is a moron info for any silver noobs lurking this evening...

Silver is, in fact, the superman of metals

Silver has the highest electrical and thermal conductivity of all metals. Every computer, server, monitor, cell phone and switch must have silver. Lasers, satellites, solar panels, high-tech weaponry (tomahawk cruise missiles contain 500 oz) and robotics, all require silver. Digital technology and telecommunications need silver. There's silver in every TV, washing machine, wall switch and refrigerator. Conductors, switches, contacts and fuses use silver because it does not corrode or cause overheating and fires. Silver is used heavily in photography and in prints. Batteries are now manufactured with silver alloys. Lead-free silver solder is used heavily for joining materials and producing leak-tight joints. Silver is also widely used in silk-screened circuit paths, membrane switches, electrically heated automobile windows, and adhesives.

Silver achieves the most brilliant polish of any metal and has the highest reflectivity of light of all the metals, allowing it to be used in mirrors and in coatings for glass, cellophane or metals. Double layers of silver on glass reflects away 95% of the hot rays of the sun. Silver has a variety of uses in pharmaceuticals as silver kills bacteria. Hospitals use silver coated devices in surgery to eliminate contamination and infection. Skin care products now use colloidal silver as it has been found to be a healing agent and disinfectant. Silver sulfadiazine is the most powerful compound for burn treatment. Catheters impregnated with silver eliminate bacteria. Silver is increasingly being tapped for water purification, silver ions used in pools and spas. To prevent growth of germs and fungus on surfaces silver ions are used in paints and coatings.

In the face of all these industrial uses there will be less silver available, plus, the unique properties of silver restrict its substitution in most applications. More silver will be used than can be produced.

Fundamental factors are always an important input in traditional commodities market price analyses.  Under less extreme circumstances than we are now facing, investors should pay attention to silver's supply/demand dynamics.  However, anyone with a shred of commonsense can see that silver is behaving more like its monetary senior, gold.  Both gold and silver markets are reverting to their true monetary basis and their price behavior is reflecting that reality.  For that reason, silver is heading toward its long-term 15 - 17 ratio with gold.  Industrial silver supply is going to be virtually non-existent before the current cycle is over, thus relegating its traditional supply/demand conditions to the scrap heap.
