Silver Crosses $34

Tyler Durden's picture

The first very shy tick above $34 in the last 31 years is in the history books. Will soon be followed by many more. And only $16 more to go to all time nominal highs... and ~$160 to real ones. What is truly hilarious vis-a-vis claims that the dollar is a reserve currency is that in the period in which gold has risen by 2.9%, and silver, 12.3%, the DXY has dropped by 1.45%. It would be quite amusing if Schumer's push to unpeg the CNY came true, only for the US to realize that its currency is now completely irrelevant.

"bye silver" as in destination moon?

mick_richfield's picture

Yes.  Please think of the people watching Chuck Yeager's first attempt on the sound barrier in The Right Stuff.

Attention criminal central bankers. Some of us have have the antidote to your criminal confiscation of assets known as inflation.

In honor of the Hunt boys, who were ahead of their time, I present Shine On Silver Moon, a disco classic. Guaranteed to get you retro dancing.

If clouds had silver linings, Blythe would short the sky.

If clouds had silver linings it would be safe to bet that the USAF had recently been there.

Those with paper silver and gold, watch for a downward assault Tuesday and Wednesday. Hopefully that will be the black swan song of Blithe.

If the silver price holds until after Wednesday's options expiration, we are in for a very high altitude lift off. Fasten your seat belts.

I propose to all zerohedgers that from now on "Silver" and "Gold" should be capitalized.

One should probably lead by example..

"leading by example" :-)

My "S" and "G" are capitals. Stop being picky

Its all those flying dollahs that we sent out to the rest of the world that I fear, but Wiemar had no fear, because they had no real history to resort to. Those Reichsmarks didn't return in droves to ruin their word did they?

Its like someone standing in front of a receding tidal wave, wondering where the water went.

we have the feeling we are omnipotent.

Somehow smarter than our fellow person, yet all we are is preparing for a storm of unrelenting fathoms.

She already has! The sky's the "limit"..... up! How how good would that be?!

I'm with you, SWR!!   Got some garden work to do, and some fence work, but maybe I'll just sit here and watch.

Prepped the first of my beds yesterday.  Can't wait for the frost to go so I can plant some radishes and peas.

I'm about 30 miles outside of Raleigh.  It's warm and windy today.  I've got brocolli, lettuce, cabbage, and spinach out.  I bought seed potatoes yesterday, but won't plant them until the first week of March.

North Florida ~ Bought potatoes today....will set around Easter...but Easter will be late this year.  Planted Radishes last week, a little late, but since they mature so quickly, I may have a chance.  My mustard green survived the winter, but are starting to go to seed.  My turnips have small bulbs on them.  

It's the wave of the future ~ Gardening, bitchez!

Lucky dogs! Still snowing in the Garden State. :-(

Can you start peanuts indoors?

quasimodo's picture

Same thing here in the Hawkeye state..ggrrrr-sick of winter.

The only thing I am planting is seeds of knowledge in some families ears about pm's. If I am lucky one will listen to me, but after trying for several years I give up.

At least my captcha is an easy one:-)

Zone 7 here.  Peas going in soon, and maybe lettuce.  Bought seeds at Southern States and they're monster nags, so I might put in some radishes early just to see if I can get away with it.

Live oak is my second home, Im in s fla making way until we have to retreat back to home, when the time comes and we are prepared.

We get to plant year round down here, but we are buying a canning system and have plans for our few acres of heaven once we have to move back north.

I'm in your neck of the woods, Wake county. Got recommendations on good seed and seedling store?


Bought cool weather vegetable seedlings that were on sale at a nursery in Raleigh but I'm looking to purchase from vendor outside of the cities limits.

perchprism's picture


I got my seed potatoes at Pace's Grocery on Covered Bridge Rd between Clayton and Archer Lodge.

I get seedlings from Lowe's at 40/42 in Garner.

I buy my seeds online from various places.  Try

Tomatoes, squash, zuchinni, peppers, etc., I sprout in those mini greenhouse/planters you can buy at Lowe's. 

For fieldpeas try Agribusiness Supply on Hwy 70 in Garner.

My family has always planted potatoes on St. Paddy's Day or the nearest weekend.  It has always given us a good crop and is an ancient family saying passed down through the generations.

ColonelCooper's picture

I have two + months before I can think about planting.  Maybe some peas and onions around first week of May if it's a warm spring, but generally speaking, Memorial weekend is planting time.  Hell, two years ago we had a killing frost in June.  That's global warming for you.

Still have a buttload of canned and frozen from last year, but am getting tired of green beans.....

Here's one for all of you other snowbound bastards with cabin fever:

No offense, CC, but I can't take it anymore. I know it's become common usage, but the term is 'boatload', not 'buttload'. And definitely not 'assload'. And while I'm at it, it's 'shedload' not 'shitload'. I mean, seriously, 'shitload' makes absolutely no sense at all.

Sorry, but that's kinda been botherin' me lately. I'm not singling you out, but your post gave me an opportunity. Oh, and hey, good luck with those peas and onions. 8-)

ColonelCooper's picture

Now we're not even just correcting typos and grammar, but colloquialisms too? 

Buttload, assload, shitload, in my opinion would be used when you aren't entirely thrilled with the abundance of whatever you're talking about, hence the "I'm sick of beans." 

Can I keep my vegetables in my root cellar, or are you going to insist I call it a fruit cellar?  ;)

Sunshine n Lollipops's picture

Awww, fuck, never mind. I guess their subtle meanings escaped me. Might as well invite 'fuckload' to the party, too. As in, "I shoulda bought a fuckload of silver last year." 8-]

My thoughts as well - oh the dilemma, the gut or the guts.

At what price will people practice self dentistry and begin to remove their own fillings?

I can just see it now. You go to the dentist to replace an old filling and you ask for the leftovers in a doggy bag.

The amalgamation can be refined and the Hg removed through a smelting process. Of course, this would only be cost-effective if you had a LOT of dental fillings to work with. It's still a highly toxic and illegal process, though.

Hephasteus's picture

The amalgamation is how they mine some of the stuff. They throw mercury on it and let it  liquify the silver and gold. Then they drip it dry and cook off the mercury and capture it in condensate.

Many small african tribes have been destroyed by these ancient mining techniques. The mercury is used in such massive quantities that it finally ends up infesting the entire village.

If you have a defective krebs cycle then your body is much worse at removing metals. Only children who have this are damaged severely by these metal laden innoculation injections. Of course all the crappy food we eat is destroying pancreas and causing diabetes and cancer and making everyone subseptible to metal poisoning.

serotonindumptruck's picture

Your comment allows for a nice segue to the benefits of colloidal silver as a chelation therapy for heavy metal toxicity. :-)

Hook Line and Sphincter's picture

Yes CD, however my concern is about when the more desperate of us decide to practice dentistry on others!

Cognitive Dissonance's picture

Bingo. We have a winner.

By "us" I assume you mean government sponsored uniform wearing "us".

Everytime I need a new filling I make them use plastic. They always want to use silver etc, but I tell them that it causes Alzeimer disease.  They look at me like I am crazy. Oh no.........

Cognitive Dissonance's picture

Ever wonder why Dentists have the highest suicide rate among professionals? Maybe it's all that aerosolized mercury they are breathing in from drilling out old fillings?

High Plains Drifter's picture

 I knew one dentist one time who quit and went into the embrodery business and also was a violinist in a country band. He told me he got tired of sticking his fingers in other people's mouths. He does work for the Bandidos MC. Ha ha ha
