A chain of strikes at several silver mines is about to go viral.

With an already tight supply of the metal, this means the systemic collapse of silver price manipulation will be an event not even the most bullish silverbugs could have expected in their wildest dreams.

The endgame is within days of unfolding.

Deposed despots and soon-to-be on the interpol criminal list financial bigshots will be stuffing their private jets not with gold, but with SILVER!!

Fuck "interpol". Bankster thugs is all they are. Banksters love "international" (read:unaccountable) "institutions".

Ahmeel, I agree completely. In fact, with war war looming/growing everywhere, silver will be declared a strategic asset right alongside oil. And will disappear much faster than gold.

I can see it happening here in India, where the "mania" for it is recent, unlike for gold, which has shone here for centuries.

It's a timeless battle or cycle, call it what you want.

Silver and oil. Cannot have physical oil, so the alter-native is clear. To all. I hope.

Good luck everyone. We might lose this forum soonish.

Silver bears rock.  Mugabe can shove his March25th decree up his butt, and keep his platinum and chrome for his teeth.  Your neighbor(s) are defaulting on their mortgage, your bank is failing, and I didn't know I was going to receive a pop quiz, but should of known since everyone on this site calls you by  your name.... bitches!  Off to watch G Edward on Beck....

Snoop Dog was preamble to a 3 paragraph section on silver manipulation. The report covered more than that. Other than stating the obvious (except to the CFTC), mostly pop journalism.

Ted Butler has been talking about this for umpteen years, but no one bothered to listen. Guess they wanted us to buy silver at a discount?

As a speculator I'm gonna speculate that the post below will be widely ignored and this will get several hundred comments.

Silver and conspiracy in a single headline. ZeroHedge definitely knows its demographic.

Like I said, the easiest cure for the problem is to shut down the silver futures market, and/or make it 100% cash market (no leverage allowed).

If you want to buy physical or hedge, then it's COD only.

This will permanently eliminate the weak handed specs who are trying to "make a killing" on the long side.

And at the same time, make it virtually impossible to pile on infinite short positions in the futures market, because you have to come up with 100% cash to enter the trade.

So the cosmic joke is this:

The faster they raise margin requirements on silver, the faster the market will go up.

I'd vote for immediate elimination of all margin on silver contracts right now.

Then you will see a $10 upside move in silver in one day.

All good traders see the light when it is bright enough. Robo is no different. The trend and strength of this commodity is real. Good traders do not fight a powerful tape. Another thought, the more they raise the margin call means the less of a pull back when the phony stock market valuations goe in the tank. PE's are too high.

$10 in a about $100 in a day when silver goes parabolic?

The problem with most folks is that they are deep in limited linear thinking about silver and finance..when the rogue wave hits.they will be partying on the beach. Zero Hedgies will possess the resources to rebuild real lasting prosperity for not only themselves but for the average person. Its not all about us folks its about being able to hold body and soul together to inspire hope on realistic basis after the tsumani hits.

I only listen to the little bears, and its not because of the farting noises and the sheeple bear continually shitting his pants.  I just believe the insiders will talk to a bear before they talk to other humans.

There's no sense of a short squeeze or any long side panic. Don't worry about JamiePeeM. JPShyster will get a deeper asspounding from REOs and CMO clawbacks than any mosquito bite PM pops. Besides, they are TBTF whatever the cause!!! HHAHAHAHAHA

yes he's having a heavy lunch with the pension industry asking them some of his tough questions like "What are you having for main course?" ... "How many $billions do you need off the taxpayer to bailout your last mistakes ...what angle should i take to spin my article and snake oil over the systemic errors of big centralised incompetence in our imploding broken promises of an industry?" ..."I can't decide between the fillet steak and the chicken McNuggets on the childrens menu, what do you think?"
