since they didn't close their position with the huge $ gains, it's clearly someone with deep pockets. Must be the "doing god's work" company.

He hasn't been around for awhile.  He must be out digging silver out of the ground for $5/ounce.

I thought at $35 he had to run out and buy a shit ton of silver because then it was "for the right reason" and "at the right price."

I've always thought Mathman sounded a lot like Mako, maybe the same guy behind both.

Maybe.  Mako was all about the math, compounding principle and interest getting us in the end.  He was right, for certain, but he was also a whiny bitch.  All I ever saw from MM was that silver won’t save you either.  But at least the only ‘costs $5 to dig out of the ground’ was funny.

RE: self-promoting posts...

The best and bravest firefighters I worked for/with never showed up at the awards dinners.

Turns out, awards and public accolades were not what they were about.

They were about something much bigger.

Makes more sense than the idea that someone let that much profit evaporate without realizing a penny of it.

Another thought, too: With that huge put, the paper silver market cracked and made a lot of folks nervous. I believe this put was placed not too long before that fateful Sunday night were silver dropped 15% in 15 minutes while every market sands Japan was closed. Only to be followed up with the Monday morning margin hike...and Wed...then Thur....then Friday.....then Tues....the Thurs.

Yup, thinking about it, that huge put was just the first strike in the concentrated take-down effort by Jesus Jamie and Lloyd the "God."

So then.. as it was not closed out on many, many profitable occasions, it means that it was never intended to be closed out at a profit?

Say it it ain't so.

That is correct. Those who manipulate PM's are rarely sellers for profit. That is the whole crux of the massive concentrated short postitions held by these criminal banksters. It is not legitimate hedging.

volatility also crashed a few days ago--mostly I assume due to perception if not reality that low to mid 30's would be the bottom and if not, the very hi 20's, rendering the 25 puts expiring in 45 days rather iffy. Good for a cheap play.


I though one major rule with options is once you have nice profits you start chipping away at position taking profits off table one way or another-some take out their cost and continue using OPM. To each  his own. But you have to do something.

If you are playing with paper you are playing with fire.  3rd degree burns may appear over night.  Lack of physical can lead to loss of apetite, loss of sleep, and nausia.  An erection lasting more than four hours is not normal.  Seek immediate medical help.  Paper silver is not for everyone and should be considered a ponzi man's game.

Yeah $25???!!! I bought a lot at under $10...$25 is an opportunity to load up some more! Of course this is just the paper price, try and get some actual metal at the current spot. Cannot do it. I love how these guys think 'silverbugs' will run from a position we have been in for YEARS if not DECADES at the drop of a dime. Even at $25 in July, (which may be true for some paper), I would be surprised if you could actually find some physical at that price. See the thing is all this paper (stocks, bonds, paper commodities, etc.) is just that-PAPER. I use paper when I take a sh*t, what the f*ck is the difference what is on that paper? When I want something I guarantee I can get it with silver and always will be able to. Ask Zimbabwe how well paper is working for them?!

I "panicked" right out of SLV...and into the solid stuff. I love the sound of silver in the morning. That heavy clink when one 100 oz. bar settles on top of another. Also, limp organ, widening premiums on silver eagles over paper-at-spot shows that a real market is separating from the manipulated,  paper Ponzi fake market. So enjoy the sound of "puts", and "calls", and "longs", and "shorts". That'll all soon be history.

If you honestly believe that you are a total moron.  Nobody cares about the CRIMEX or your stupid fucking government and their doped up minions.  Silver is a cash-physical market and nobody gives two sweet fucks about the SLV anyways.

Do you think the Chinese amass Gold and Silver only to allow the US to continue manipulating the markets?

the % return falls in the category of newsletter writers saying they earned 1000% this week and last trading this and that. What they do not say is you have to be an idiot to make a huge bet where the dollars of profit are significant in addition to the %.

Thats whew the ability to get in options when a trend is in place and having the ability to actually manage your money is important.

They knew about all the margin hikes beforehand but miscalculated them obviously.

No, the news in and of itself was part of the operation.  Taking the profit would expose the fraud too clear for all to see.  This way, the objective of lowering spot price was achieved without ringing alarm bells and, as many here have stated, who in their right mind would not take profits?

So it worked.

White-collar bankster crime, fraud, and theft is alive and well in this model of a free market.  What a joke.

How about a multi-level play with the single psy-ops bet plus scattered under the radar bets. Take profits from the anonymous puts and leave the glaring purchase until you have to close it out at break-even level? That might make it a real profit-making ploy and not a bankster manipulation.
