The Silver Bears Are Back For Part 7

Tyler Durden's picture


Everyone's favorite cartoon is back after the silver bears make yet another return appearance, this time number 7, in which more than anything,zt is made clear that the name of Blythe Masters will live in infamy long after she no longer has anything to do with the price of silver, and, allegedly, its ongoing suppression.

Former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan on Sunday ruled out the chance of a US default following S&P's decision to downgrade America's credit rating.

"The United States can pay any debt it has because we can always print money to do that. So there is zero probability of default" said Greenspan on NBC's Meet the Press

I'm impressed that silver stood tight despite a bloodbath in the equity market. Granted it's not gold impressive but as impressive as it can get considering the margin requirement difference between the two metals.

In a recent interview Eric Sprott remarked that the manipulation is now on silver as an indirect means of discouraging gold.  If there is indeed a severe silver shortage, which I believe the evidence indicates, I´m buying more silver while the gold-silver ratio has briefly reversed direction.

"The United States can pay any debt it has because we can always print money to do that. So there is zero probability of default" said Greenspan on NBC's Meet the Press

So we can pay any debt, by creating more debt, by borrowing fiat asspaper from a group of your zionazi criminal cocksucker buddies at the fed reserve.... Good to know Alan, I feel better.

It was like Deja Vu this morning,  I was watching David Faber on CNBC.....remember when he did the interview with Merrill CEO and asked them would they have to raise anymore capital and he said "no, we are fine where we are at".  This morning he asked the exact same questions to BAC CEO and he said "no, we are fine where we are at."   This looks like a return trip to the abyss coming.

In over a year you have only posted 3 comments and this is one of them!!

Having worked on construction sites most of my life, with many extremely competent professionals with language skills that could make a longshoreman blush, the "language" and expressions the bears use is VERY "tame"... I for one think it's cute,funny and very appropriate after today.

Not sure I agree with them, but I can "respect" the logic of their arguments to this point. However, I would like to see the few next steps in their logic....

I think when/if the SHTF the PTB will not allow citizens to retain ownership of their PM's and that by having them in your possession you will be "inviting" undue attention of the "fatal kind". (Think Stalin....) If you’re going to buy PM's you have to be able to not only protect the asset but also be able to "redeem" the PM's for goods and services. If the PTB have "outlawed" this you are screwed.

Futher, if all hell breaks lose there will be alot of desperate people just trying to survive. Having that kind of "conspicuous" wealth in your possession is unwise.

there are times i like to think maybe a new group of people is needed to present the 'truth' about what's going on to a wider audience. of course, this message will never be marketed to the larger masses, but there are more than a handful of thoughtfull people who would be persuaded to see the truth of manipulated social and political process by way of finance, if not for the frequently childish and at times sell side tone of this website. 


it's articles like this, and others from pheonix , smartknowledge u and others that seem more like promotion than information that make this site limited in its reach of audience. that and it doesn't have a FACE on video. i think max keiser is trying to do that, but he is guilt of the same stupid mocking tone that will preclude many people who are not fueled exclusively by anger from taking him seriously enough to watch him regularly.

I've bought at/near the top every year since 1999...

If one looks at the ratio of GOLDS to SILV (physical spot prices), and looks back to 1992 (data doesn't seem to be on bloomberg much earlier), it seems that the ratio is in the lowest band. If this means anything, then modern price history for physical silver and gold suggests that the price of gold should move up more than silver (percentage wise) to move into the 50 - 60 times band - which is where it has spent the most time in the last 20 years.


Presently, it is around 32 - 34 times, which is in the lowest band. The only time it has been lower (since 1992) is when Silver just recently went up near 50.


Again, if this historical price ratio is any indicator, then gold is head up more than silver.

(I have sold my physical silver and bought gold today). blah blah blah, my book, blah blah blah.

A more valid comparison would be during the last bull market in gold from 1968 to 1980. There the ratio was at the start and end of the bull way lower then today.

i'm struck by how so many people have been commenting in the last week , gloating over the explosion of the markets. 

what does silver tell you ?



it tells you that despite the underlying long term market dynamics----that consumer business bank and public debt is nothing but a huge unpayable SUCK on the real economy........


despite the underlying dynamics which dictate that a crash had to come sooner or later, that the timing of this crash was NOT unforseen and that it is being controlled by at least some of wall streets banks. there ARE people in mcgraw hill (s&p parent) that are in communicado with other people that are overseeing this long dip, silver will not be allowed to go down or up.

this whole thing is still being controlled. i don't see the market being not-totally controlled unless it is closed. until i at least see circuit breakers go off, or the entire market shuttered for at least a week, then you are not seeing the markers of a loss of true control. 

a market closing is only the beginning of a real opportunity for political change. 

so stop getting your panties wet everyone on zerohedge.


oh yes...and buy gold .hoooooah! hahaha. (i'm poking fun at the buy gold motto being like the zh salute ) . 


disclosure i'm a registered independent and short. not short this or that.  just short. 5'5'' :)

BL, I doubt your skill as a lawyer when you make sweeping statements like "so stop getting your panties wet everyone on zerohedge".  (my panites  do get wet from time to time but that comes with old age and having given birth to several children, not from reading ZH)

Having read many of the "types" of post that you are refering to, I concur that many have a macabre attitude.  Kind of like watching a plane stall and know that the pilot doesn't have enough altitude to pull it out and is going to crash.  Of course some people are placing bets on if the plane will crash... not thinking of the fact that it might crash on their heads, but then again there is very little they can do to change the outcome except watch it play out. "

And for your information, "Buy gold" is NOT the ZH salute!!  It's:

Oh shit- you're right.  Tell you what, I don't want you to have to take the full brunt of the hit, since you were good enough to warn of us all- so I'm willing to take it all off your hands for $20/oz.  Not a bad return for something that only costs $5 to dig out of the ground, right?

1) Where the heck do you buy physical silver

1.  Set your time machine to 1964.  Ask for change for paper money at the bank.  Back then maybe they wouldn't even make you open an account to get change. 

2.  Drill holes in your rounds and throw them in the tool box, they make great washers.

3.  How big is your bird cage?  How many birds?  How much do they eat?  That is, How much papering does your bird cage need?

#2  easy if know a little. Just get an old work electrical switch or receptacle box, install where it it looks normal, fill it, put a blank cover on it. Most thieves spend less than 10 mins in a house. less if they hear a click.

Physical silver comes in five basic forms- pre-1964 US "junk" (90%) silver in the forms of silver dollars, halves, quarters and dimes, silver bullion coins (American Silver Eagles, Canadian Maple Leafs, etc.) Generic silver bars and rounds with a purity and weight stamp, commemorative coins, and shot (for industrial use.)

Of those, I like the first two the best, myself- they're easily recognizable and more liquid than the other stuff- and are easier to purchase, as well.  The older "junk" silver has a nice historic feel to it, and often comes with some attractive toning and tarnish, while bullion is shiny and bright.  I have some of each- though more of the 90% silver.

You can get them from local coin shops, Ebay, or one of the bullion dealers, such as AMPEX.  I like Ebay the best, personally, as you can get some great deals there, often under spot if you're lucky.  Coin shop is nice, too, as you can bullshit with the proprietor for a while when you stop in.  Never used AMPEX, myself- I usually order from an outfit in New Jersey with an Ebay store.

Store it where it's not easy to find- and not in a safety deposit box.  If the gov't ever decides to seize it, they'll get it there.  

IRA can be devalued or stolen, it's best to hang onto your stash yourself.

Most importantly, if you're not sure of it, don't buy it.  It can be hard to deal with when it corrects.  You'll lose big if you can be scared out when the price drops fast and hard.  If you are the nervous type, buy gold instead- you'll have less of it, but it doesn't swing around so wildly.

i wonder if JPM has gone long on gold to cover their silver short positions?.... even though silver is not rising like gold it is still breaking away to the upside from JPM's share price.

thoughts? how long can JPM survive doing this? will we finally see them crash in august?

The fact that silver did not go negative today tells you something... The silver play is far from over imo.

Silver Is Going To $10,000 Or Higher

  • 100 ounces makes your net worth $1,000,000
  • 1,000 ounces makes your net worth $10,000,000
  • 10,000 ounces makes your net worth $100,000,000
  • 100,000 ounces makes your net worth $1,000,000,000,000

Gold:Silver Will Hit 1:1

Be prepared to move into undervalued assets so you can realize the massive gains, and compound them, before the bubble collapses.

I agree regarding the very likely parity of silver to gold (just my opinion).

However, I also think silver would then retreat.  Key is to hold on to the gains...convert.

Here's my take on what the bears said: Silver is going up to $75. That's because there's a conspiracy on the part of the Morgue.

I guess I'll have to listen again to try to understand more...

If you want clear evidence of how silver is manipulated, check out this site and the video analysis. I've not found anything better on the topic.

Apparently JP was unimpressed with the bears' input and continues to rape silver. 

The truth is I'm not familiar with 80% of the technical busness terms and initials used on this site and I couldn't follow the bears conversation either.

I hope someone can fix my ignorance due to my own miseducation. What is it that will prevent JP and the others from manipulating silver? It looks to me like they can pretty much grab a huge handful of profits any time they please. I hope they can be stopped, and stopped soon. 

How does it happen?

It is just as you surmise Kelley, the Morgue and similar large traders can and do regularly "scoop" the market for skim profits via manipulation.
