Silver Tumbles Most In 6 Months

Tyler Durden's picture


Silver is down almost 3% today - its biggest drop since the end of January as precious metals both tumble back towards pre-June-FOMC levels. News on China demand appears to be the main catalyst according to desk chatter (as well as a break through the key 50-day and 100-day moving-averages) with gold testing down to its 200-day moving average at $1286.


Worst day for Silver in 6 months...


Precious metals are reatracing gains from the June FOMC... (and testing technical levels)

Now that the Chinese have most of the gold they need at bargain central bank fiat-supporting prices, It’s time to buy up an even thinner physical silver market.

And, it is a slam dunk for their future monetary, electronic and photovoltaic needs.

The Hunt brothers and their backers just wanted to corner an undervalued quasi -monetary market and they did not realize the umbrage that the Fed, Comex and other Wall Street cronies took to that challenge.

The Fed and the rest of the banking racket will meet their match this time around. 


And oh, how does the traditional meaning of  yuan” translate?

“The word "yuan" goes back further than "renminbi". It is the Chinese word for dollar - the silver coin, mostly minted in the Spanish empire, used by foreign merchants in China for some four centuries”

Also,  how does the word  “bank” translate into Chinese?

“First Character: ? (yín) – silver  Second Character: ? (háng) – all right; capable;"

Silver has a 6% premium on the SGE.  If that doesn't indicate low Chinese demand, I don't know what does.

Yeah, right...they're demand is highest in the world so prices should tumble?  That makes sense. 

And haven't ASE sales already this year been another record?  ASE vs AGE sales are at 100:1  But there isn't enough demand???  hahaha

Don't mention massive selling of 100's of tons of backed-by-nothing paper bullshit as the cause.  Plus isn't end of the month delivery coming up?  There's usually a big smack to the PM's before "delivery". 

As if they have any physical that they can deliver anymore, and even if they did, they never do or will deliver.  All their physical has gone to China (because of China's low demand? LOL). 

It's not lower's lower fucking supply, bitchez.

Keep stackin'...BTFD and don't look back.  We are right and they are wrong.

In 2013, the Mint sold a record 42,400,000 Silver Eagles.

So far, in just the first 6 months of 2014 (through June), the Mint has sold 24,128,500.

While this is slightly behind 2013's record of 25,043,500 after the first six months, that's still close to all-time record territory.

where exactly is the supply shortage coming from then? Seems like there is plenty of silver out there. Where are the delivery failures? Not trying to be the dick here, just asking a legit question. Seems like there is plenty of supply, and plenty of demand. The fuckin price just can't seem to move up to validate the demand argument and there is no proof of lack of supply to validate the lack of supply argument.

As long as people are allowed to sell Silver they don't own and does not exist, your question answers itself. CME sells more Silver each week than yearly global production, How can you then say there is ample Silver out there?...or do you mean paper Silver?

I am looking at it from the aspect of us retail pikers. People in venezuala can't buy toilet paper. it's not on the shelves. i can buy silver right now no prob. Schiff's PM company just sent me an ad to buy gold maples $30 over spot in his "blowout sale".

I am not debating that the price is not being slammed down by someone(s) messing with the paper market. I am saying the efforts by everyone on here to buy phyz seems to be futile in causing a legit supply squeeze and possibly driving the price higher.

Rather than painting stackers as speculators, I would suggest most that buy Silver and Gold know banks are insolvent and likely to lose any and all paper assets under there care. A rise in price is just icing on the cake.

i'm not sure where I rendered a judgement as to whether retail were speculating or buying for the purposes you mentioned. Did not mean to do that, if that is what i did.

Whatever the reason for buying, it just does not seem to make a dent in the supply/demand chain enough to impact the market. if it can't disrupt the market, and the pm smashers have no plans to stop dumping paper as they usually do, this may drag on for a long time.

I guess where i differ on here is that a rise in price is not icing on the cake for me. it's the reason for the purchase.

While China may have a slight reduction, India are still importing 25% of the global supply of silver (near record highs). There is alot more slack in Silver than in gold no doubt and will be for some time. My bet is that the gold phyzz shock (which has little slack) will send a large market into Silver quickly and then thats when the supply squeeze happens, the ratio of gold to silver decreases and silvers price increases.

Gold is the one to watch, the amount that is getting imported by the Middle East and Asia easily outweighs the global year on year supply. The western vaults must be gettting drained each and every month

You really should expand your information sources beyond just ZH, Mike Baloney, Max Keiser, or all the other 'professionals' featured on here. Since Tyler never reported it (shocking, i know), China's H1 gold demand dropped by 25%, bullion demand dropped by 65%.

China now imports PM's directly thru Bejing. Only the Hong Kong imports are reported thus the reason for the fall in imports. 



Thu, 07/24/2014 - 15:26 | 4999886 Save_America1st
Save_America1st's picture

as if you have a clue what China's actual imports really have been?  Who's information on China have you swallowed hook, line, and sinker???  CNBS, Liesman, and Kramer?

China doesn't report anything truthfully because they don't want anyone to know and they don't want to pay more for their gold than they have to, even if they are using our own T's to buy it with.

The supply is dwindling.  Reports out of Switzerland after a year and half straight of non-stop 24/7 melting of bars and reminting them to .9999 Chinese bars is that they're now getting the old shit from the 1960's.  And that it's pretty much gone.

China's numbers may be all lies, and yeah, I believe it is true that their importing has gone down "some".  But that is most likely because supplies above ground are now beyond strained while exploration and mining output are at historically low levels after the last 3 years. 

So why don't you tell us all just how much gold has the United States imported this year or last year, huh??? 

Yeah, that's what I thought...shut the fuck up.

If you have been paying attention, which it's obvious you haven't, you would know that my strategy has always been to take advantage of the free currency that the BernankenYellenStein monster gives us, BTFD in the market, and then buy real stuff with the profits. If you choose to keep all your "assets" in paper then good luck with that. I prefer to diversify across multiple asset classes. Oh and BTW.... I've owned gold for a hell of a lot longer than 3.5 years.

No thanks.  Florida cured my "itch" for hot, tropical places.

Prefer Bermuda over Bahamas, PEI over BVI.  Fewer social and other diseases too.

If I were to pick something tropical, I'd stay away from the nutjobs, crooks and riff-raff, and go to a place like Bora Bora or Rarotonga.  The latter is a great place to hold annual meetings for an offshore trust (that effectively tells the IRS to "take a long walk off our short piers").  Thanks, Simon.

p.s. I’ll bet you dollars to donuts that you can probably get a cheap, safe and fun seaside vacation in places like Bulgaria or Crimea.  Or Georgia.  And I'll bet you that Spain is cheap these days, given their sky-high debt and unemployment.  And if you want to enjoy the Caribbean but get away from "loud Americans", try Cuba -- if you have that second passport.  Or go via Jamaica and tell the Cubans not to stamp your US passport.

In an extremely un-certain world; the dollar will continue to decline in purchasing power as it has for the last 100 years; with every reason to expect an acceleration in the rate of it's devaluation, and accordingly Silver and Gold will trade at nominally higher prices.

Why do we have to pretend there is a reason gold or silver went down? The reason given today for the dump will be the exact same reason we hear next week for a surge.

There is no reason for gold and silver's moves other than some bullion bank needed to ring the cash register.

Pretending that these dumps occur for some discernible reason is basically calling your readers idiots.

I'm more about unloading any excess FRNs. If I can buy real money with fake money at a cheaper price, that works for me.

It keeps staying low so that the Chinese can continue to accumulate cheap.Western media,the banks and most other financial institutions treat gold like it's to be the most truely hated class of commodities right now.Mining shares are treated even worse.Even the average person that I talk to or any of my relatives,I tell them I'm actively buying silver and gold and they think I'm on another planet or some kind of investor that doesn't know what I'm doing with my money.It's true though,the whole sector right now is hated.

"The total silver Comex OI fell slightly by 526 contracts as silver was unchanged yesterday.  The total OI now rests tonight at 162,485 contracts. The silver contracts are in very strong hands and this will continue to bring nightmares to our bankers."

Old Harvey O mentioned this yesterday.

The bullion banks had to try something. Let's hope it doesn't work.

It is always worth an ounce.

Who cares what it is in arbitrary FRNs?

Look the reason silver is being hammered is because for the first time in ages I went long at 20.70 and then at 20.46.

That is why silver is getting mauled.

I never learn! Just have to check out some silver porn tonight to cheer me up.

If silver isn't real money , does that mean we can give it to hookers for sex and be in the clear legally?

I'm waiting another day, maybe until Monday's open.  Because it is so attractive to me here, that's a sure sign I am too early.

The "like clockwork" PM price slams provide a guaranteed source of profit.

Buy the slam, sell the rebound.


Or in my case, buy the slam, wait out the rebound.
