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.

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.

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.

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.....

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-)

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?  ;)

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.

mercury ruins silver

Mon, 02/21/2011 - 14:07 | 982178 serotonindumptruck
serotonindumptruck's picture

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.

Mon, 02/21/2011 - 15:41 | 982506 Hephasteus
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.

I went to dental school and practiced for over 10 yrs. and hated almost every minute of it--felt like a mouth janitor. Nevertheless, the porcelain to metal crowns are almost $1000 for a reason (and of course, the gold crowns), that there metal is highly precious and dentists will swipe it when replacing said crowns with new ones while still charging the full amount. Highway robbery, especially these days. So take your old dental work home with you or negotiate a "trade in" when you have dental work replaced.

A lot of these old monarchs have been in power a very long time. During that time, technology changed and information flow became much faster and less controlled. The internet came alive in about 1995 or so and since then alternative medias such as twitter and facebook etc sprang up. This fast information flow is causing them major problems. There was a time, when they would turn the army loose on people and nobody would ever know about it. Now videos of soldiers shooting unarmed civilians spring up on youtube. This just makes the people more determined and more angry. The old days are over now. They did not change with the times. They have tried doing things the old way and it has failed and failed miserably. Thanks to the internet, the last bastion of free speech, left on the planet, more or less. Now let us get some fat hamburger eaters in front of the FED building in Washington DC and take care of some much needed business.

I've sent them a couple of e-mails asking when I should pay, but got some generic emails in return. I'm waiting to make payment to make sure they are legit, but have my concerns in that regard. I hope they delivery. Would be a black eye on the silver trade...

My guess is that it was a scam, from the similar reports that I'm hearing. You ought to be talking to the appropriate authorities at this point.

There's also the possibility that they took the money to go long on March future contracts, with the intent of standing for delivery. Perhaps they'll use some of that silver to make the coins. That's the best outcome that I can see; and perhaps I'm too optimistic here.

I hope I'm wrong about this, but in any case, your best approach is to be proactive and get law enforcement on their tails while there's still a trail to follow.

Good luck.

Every time I see that name, I can't help but wondering if those coins with his name/likeness on them ever got delivered.

There was a lady named blythe,

Whose money ran a little tight,

So she dropped her shorts,

and told her co-horts,

I'm taking off on the Silver Flight.


With apologies to all limmerickians.

CIGA's were totally brutalized by General Jim the Carnival Barker
RobotTrader - Fri, Jan 14, 2011 - 09:18 AM

Today is January 14, and panicked CIGA's are selling en masse after being hoodwinked once again by the gold shilling clowns.

Meanwhile, many Max Keiser types over at Zero Hedge tried to short JPM and that stock rocketed straight up.

No doubt, JPM pocketed billions on its silver shorts, as it always does.

Lesson learned:

Never fight the house.

Never trade against the PigMen.

Sensationalist shills such as General Jim, Eric King, James Turk, etc. should always be faded.

"But Jim, you promised!".....

That's right. No need to listen to the siren's song. Too many do that. They wreck their ships of state on the shores of reality. The reality is real money and always was and the people who run the FED love gold. If they love gold, then why can't anyone else? The goal is to keep your eye on the prize and believe me, they all come back to their daddy, sooner or later.

here's an article from a korean news portal (in korean) about the surge in demand for silver:

basically, it says koreans are turning their attention to silver, buying up silver utensils and what not like never before.  as far as i know, bullions are available in korea.

I would only buy at this moment if I didn't have any, or as part of a monthly investment program.

Grains are a screeming bargain imho. You can get really high quality chemical free hard white wheat from wallmart at about 50 cents a pound. At that price, I can get enough food for a family of four to last 3 months all for around 180-200 bucks.

Gold ain't doing too bad either.

James Turk: The backwardation in silver is so bad that spot is now .73 over futures. Mmm... and wonders why the arbitrageurs are not taking advantage of this incredible opportunity -- his own answer -- because there's simply no physical out there for them to do it with!

Looks like Max Keiser wins. Power to the people...  Bitchezzz!
