It is starting to look like the rise in value is accellerating.

As I noted elsewhere, a friend of mine just returned from an extended trip to China. Gold is selling in a frenzy, as silver cannot be had. Banks are selling silver for future delivery months out. Everyone is buying it, and there is none to be had. She also reported that wealth is widespread, and Chinese are starting to stray away from stocks and real estate and seek out precious metals. Especially silver. How many people are there in China again? And what is the literal translation of the Chinese word for "bank?" [Ans: Silver House]

Hey...if you ever need someone to watch over your silver for you while you're away on vacation...  :)

Yeah, I was doing the same thing last night when I decided it was time to count what I had.

My first bullion purchase was 5 x 10 oz bars of silver at $ 19.60 (Canadian $ which were at par more or less in early 2008) per oz (shipping included) and 5 x 1 oz wafers of gold @ $ 956.00 (Can. $ shipping inc.).

And I have been buying periodically ever since and hope that years from now what I bought yesterday has done as well as my first purchase.

But the best deal of all was my Dad giving me his silver coin collection which at last count is about $ 1500.00 melt value ( with a handful of those coins worth more than melt to the right collector) since those coins cost only the face value from when he was a younger man. Thanks Dad!

It's been a good 2 weeks for me - today I just doubled-up on silver. I bought 16 POUNDS (american lbs) at $22/oz.

  Last week I doubled-up on gold. I bought at $720, it went flying thru $1440.

And what's a vault? A "Gold Box".

Wealth = Gold, Silver = Trade and Commerce

Is the more accurate breakdown.


Much more relevant is that silver WAS money in China.

It was on the Silver standard.


Japan, on the other hand, you dont see the mania for silver.

You sort of do for gold. Although, still, the Yen holds sway over the populace.

But Japan WAS on the gold standard.

And gold was money in Japan before the western standards.


So the history isnt exacltly clear as to why silver would be favored by much of Asia.

Gold seems the better bet if you're expecting a Chinese led price bubble.


That said, I like the "short squeeze the hell out of JPM" narrative.

How quickly we for get that is was at $18 in September..... just over six months ago.   Parabolic blow off top any one? 

Can you say bubble?  Say it with me. Buh-bell!

It's really going to suck for you longs who aren't taking profits when it's back below $20 this summer....

"Only $5 .... to get out of ground ..... $5 .... out of ground ..... only $5 ..... to dig from ground ..... only $5 ........ only $5 ....... only $5 ........... must eat brains ....."


Tell you what, Balding_Snails, there is only around $3000, tops, in raw materials in any new pickup.  By your "logic", I should run to my nearest dealership and demand that they sell me a brand new, fully-loaded pickup for $3000, right?

Or how about I go to the grocery store and demand that they sell me a loaf of bread for eighteen cents, since that is the price of the wheat and other ingredients that it contains?

Or what say we march over to Saudi Arabia and insist that they sell us a barrel of oil for $20 ---- since that is what it currently costs them to "pull it from the ground"?

What I am trying to say is, your reasoning is full of shit.

Not bubble...escalator.  It'll have its ups and downs while continuing to climb higher.  Oh, we might indeed have a larger correction at some point, but the days of $20 are gone forever.  When QE3 is announced soon - by whatever warm fuzzy name they use to try to hide it - it'll serve as another pillar to prop the "bottom" for silver up another tick or two.  We might see a fall in price for a while if certain events (unforeseen perhaps, like the ME/NA riots?) spring up, but silver is making a permanent comeback.  The price floor is now well above $20 and rising.

So the next question I buy some more this week in preparation for the soon-to-be-passed $50 spot and make a little more profit?

Please please please let silver go back to $20 per ounce. I don't see it, but we can hope. And yes, my thousands of ounces would be worth less fiat. But I'd be getting rid of whatever fiat I have left for that $20 silver...

And stop calling yourself Math Man. It pisses off those of us around here who can actually do some math.

Generalize?  You should do some more googling on this guy, he's been leaving a trail of scams and financial wreckage for a decade.  The "Aids vaccine" incident was one of my favorites.  How this guy is still in the business after all that is a mystery.
