Silver Catches Up To Gold's Fears

Tyler Durden's picture


Equities, EUR, and Treasury yields have round-tripped from notable falls this morning to 'recouple' with Gold's relative stability but it is Silver that is running the show for now - up over 7.5% from pre-NFP.

How to polish your silver:


Line a pan with a sheet of aluminum foil. Add water and baking soda. Heat. Place silver in pan. Watch the tarnish magically disappear!

If there were a "hoard" of silver buyers (like those who lined up for Facebook - like you dickhead) the price would be well over 100/oz.

I would call you a troll/whore/shill, but do not want to insult the real ones out there.

You have nothing to contribute here but bullshit. Try answering the questions asked of you regarding your superior intellect in stock picking.

I have been hearing squeemish, whining, milk toast, name calling drivel from little bitches like you ever since I started buying silver at four dollars an ounce.

Time for you to STFU, and GTFO.

There have been so many boating accidents recently, where people have sadly lost all their metal.   One time I was examining a gold coin while on a relaxing nature walk, tripped, and off the gold went, into the lake, never to be seen again...

All throughout history, there have been myths and legends on the demand for precious metals.

Apparently, a couple hundred thousand years ago, aliens came to this planet and hybridized us into a slave race to mine gold for them to take off planet.

Many believe they are still here, and most of the gold has been taken off planet.  This makes more sense than some of the other stories about what's going on.

There is tarnish removal, and silver polish. Removing the tarnish will leave the silver with a little dulness, that polishing will smooth out while removing the tarnish. Guess which one is the labor intensive?

Spot silver is barely trailing JPM stock price.  Parity points between the two have always proven interesting.  Past point have proven detrimental to silver price, perhaps thrid time will be the charm this pass through.  Stupid monkeys collateralizing their stock for naked shorting sure does giving great entry points for those wanting possession though.

Your statement is perfect logic of why in a deflationary environment, PMs do not go up as much. People sell to cover debts still denominated in dollars. The winners will be the ones that resist that urge and are able to hold on until:

1) massive printing in a short period of time beyond what we have seen yet - and I'm talking in excess of 20 trillion to bring on hyper inflation.

2) the government that either controls the reserve currency or the one that has the most influence on the new currency reserve, has a policy that uses PMs to back that currency.

Unbelievable.  A well-timed Fed plant with their press toady saying not much of anything and presto - NFP losses are gone.  As Robo says, Bernanke plays 'investors' like a fiddle again.  Fact is, it's easy to play, because everyone's in on it and phony gains are the only gains going.  If it all falls apart we all lose, but playing it this way (without real savings and productive investment) guarantees that it will fall apart.  What a fiasco!

My spider senses were tingling all last week, so on Thursday, I converted some excess FeRNs into about 1,500 ounces of physical silver bullion.

Though short-term price fluctuations are meaningless relative to silver's long-term fundamental value, it is still rather satisfying to BTFD just before a 200 CentiFeRN spike up.

Anyway, I just hope the paper-pushers slam the price down into the low to mid 20s, so I can back up the truck again for some more.

Thanks, Tyler, for helping me stay informed with knowledgeable and brutally HONEST commentary in the Number 1 financial blog on the planet!

aye, stack it.  at least one more pump I know.  I'm throwing a dart at the board, calling whatever price at the beginning of July will be the base for moving forward.  What it does between now and then, I don't know.

CFTC "Good Cop" Chilton recently called an outcome to the "manipulation investigation" by the fourth of July, hence the timing.  If it's bad for JPM, they would pump, then dump, for old times' sake.  If it's good for JPM, they would pump, then dump, because, why not.

Of course, what do I know, I cast my 100oz slab into a lake after mistaking it for bait lure.

Bart Chilton is smooth in the front, like a Ken Doll. Nothing will happen with the CFTC.

This is terrible, this idea.

You don't know how much longer the silver market can remain manipulated and tied to the price of the COMEX contract.  It always seems like it is on the brink of collapse.

That is why you should simply cost average your purchases.  Take whatever savings you want to put into silver and break it up into a few chunks, and once that is all invested, continue to buy once every two weeks, or every month, or every quarter; however you like such that it is convenient for you AND you have enough purchases that you won't mind having bought at $45 when it falls to $26 because you also bought a lot at $10, $15, $20, etc.

From Clif High's post today: "Here at HPH we are watching the flow of currencies into precious metals over these next 14/fourteen days as an indicator that the [unexpected military events] will be [accelerated] in their [timing]. Look to the language coming out of the CFR for other hints as we go forward into June and the Summer of (actual) Change."
