Silver Screams To Best Day In 5 Months; Up 11 Days In A Row

Tyler Durden's picture


Silver's 4.4% rise today - back above $21 for the first time in 3 months - is the largest single-day surge in 5 months. While gold has been making the headlines, silver has risen 11.9% with no down days in the last 11. This is the best 2-week run in 6 months as the Gold-to-Silver ratio has collapsed from over 65x to 61x today.


Quite a day for silver...


Gold-to-Silver ratio back to trend...


We suspect the almost record shorts in Silver are feeling the squeeze...

My battered wife syndrome has me looking over my shoulder expecting a beating any second. Refreshing to see the advance, but gotdayum.

Looks like dumping my BTC and scooping up Ag was a good idea.  Who woulda thunk it?

Au/Ag ratio at 61.54 and dropping.  Watch out at 57!

I'm "Gold BITCHEZ!" as much as anyone else but when you guys use words like the ratio "collapsed", isn't that being a little overdramatic?

Real and shitty are two different things.  But fonestar can think of many things that are both real and shitty simultaneously.

Well, that comment explains a few things. Having a smelly dick does put a new perspective into your ass backwards investment strategy.

What ass backwards investment strategy would that be?  The one that got fonestar into $16 BTC?

Gold and silver will eventually flow out into ethereal things anyway, primarily title as in shares, property, loans, etc, etc.  You had better correct this error in judgement (nonsense about only trusting tangible items) and buy your Bitcoin today.

Keep smokin' that Bitcoin crack. No hope for your Hopium ass, fersure.

Sliver gains 11.9 % in 11 days. BTC loses 50% of it's value in 7 days. I better sell my silver and buy BTC before I lose my shirt. Right?

Queue fonestar with the btc/ltc ratio. Though I made money in crypto, it's quite lame and uber-manipulated. Stack on.

Yes. Once banks got whim, wham! I usedto think btc was going to be a major player when global capital controls are implemented.  It might still, but I prefer the "ching" sound that phyz makes.

fonestar actually believes that the cryptos trade classic patterns and you don't need to be brilliant trader to figure out.  Stop buying when you see them starting to go vertical, wait for them to crash 50 - 60% and buy some more.

One single Bitcoin will someday buy all of the metal that the users on this forum spent years stacking.

If you can convince a retarded mogoloid helmet wearing special school bus passenger to part with his lucky wartime nickel, you might have a deal.

If there is a gaudy physical representation of a Bitcoin to hand over to him.

Otherwise, you are gonna get kicked in the nuts for trying to scam a retard for his lucky nickel.

To my knowledge section 19 of the Coinage act of 1792 has never been repealed or amended thereby members of the FED as well as our elected officials for the last 100 years are guilty of felonious treason under the terms of this section. Who could argue that our money has not been debased or outright STOLEN from the American people. The Gold and Silver reserves of the United States were the property of its citizens and has been sold by thee criminal bankers.

Section 19. And be it further enacted, That

if any of the gold or silver coins which

shall be struck or coined at the said mint

shall be debased or made worse as to the

proportion of the fine gold or fine silver

therein contained, or shall be of less weight

or value than the same out to be pursuant to

the directions of this act, through the

default or with the connivance of any of the

officers or persons who shall be employed at

the said mint, for the purpose of profit or

gain, or otherwise with a fraudulent intent,

and if any of the said officers or persons

shall embezzle any of the metals which shall

at any time be committed to their charge for

the purpose of being coined, or any of the

coins which shall be struck or coined at the

said mint, every such officer or person who

shall commit any or either of the said

offenses, shall be deemed guilty of felony,

and shall suffer death.

Silver will have to shoot to $88 if it's to reach its natural 15-1 ratio with gold.  But, at least it's finally heading in the right direction.

Hate to break it to you but there have been coinage acts in







And you are aware that no legal defination of a dollar exists...

 DOLLARS OR UNITS--each to be of the value of a Spanish milled dollar as the same is now current, and to contain three hundred and seventy-one grains and four sixteenth parts of a grain of pure, or four hundred and sixteen grains of standard silver.

That sounds like a definition to me , fairly fucking specific !!
Also I have found no language in any of the subsequent amendments that somehow alters the VERY SPECIFIC language of Article 19

I am a product of 2 WWII military families and have been making apoligies and allowances for these criminal SOBS for entirely too many years NO FUCKING MORE !!
I will not convey the same lies to my children that were handed to me. Time to face the music and take these sociopathic scumbags to task !
Until we take the power back ( money , GOLD AND SILVER ONLY ) we are screwed.

Considering two of the major bitcoin trading houses are closed due to manipulation of the flawed currency, and silkroad2 just fucked off with everyone's bitcoins, only a completely deluded idiot would say that they're not manipulated.

The flaw is in the currency not the trading house, that's why everyone is in full panic. Lying to people only makes things worse. Shame on you.

The flaw is not in the currency it was with Gox and other exchanges wallets.  In fact watching the trading commentary on BTC-e during this supposed "crisis" barely anyone even mentioned it.

At least crack and meth heads know that they are addicted to their own deaths. 

You all just keep shining on that crazy Bitcoin Diamond, Fonestar.

Guys like you is why they bury people six feet deep.

Why ?

Because, deep down, they are good people.

You are doing a fine job with your bitcoin shovel there, Pilgrim.
