Silver – The Only Commodity 66% Cheaper Than 37 Years Ago

Silver has gone from being the cartel’s kryptonite to being its LHC, or Large Hadron Collider. There are a lot of theories on what is going on with silver but the reality will probably be something even more fantastic. I keep getting back to lumber by way of comparison. The OI in silver is 55 times higher than in lumber, yet the global physical lumber market by dollar volume is actually higher. – quote from LeMetropole Cafe’s “Midas” Report

Those of us who have studied and traded silver for a long time (16 years in my case), have concluded that the Western Central Banks have painted themselves into a corner with their multi-decade effort to control the price of silver. Central Banks ran out of silver to unload on the market a long time ago. As such, they’ve had to resort to using paper derivative silver in the form of Comex futures, LBMA forward and OTC derivatives in their effort to cap the price of silver. In the last year, the amount of paper silver sold short against the available supply physical silver has grown into an astronomical number. At this point the banks can only pray that less than 1% of the longs each delivery period will continue to settle the contracts in cash…

“As a fiduciary, to the extent that you own gold and are going to own it a long time, it is not a trade….in the COMEX warehouse they had $80 Billion of open interest, and $2.7 Billion of deliverables….thats an easy one, you go get it.”  -Kyle Bass

Kyle: “What if 4% of the people want delivery?”
COMEX Delivery Manager: “Oh Kyle that never happens. We rarely ever get a 1% delivery.
Kyle: “Well, what if it does happen?”
COMEX Delivery Manager: “Oh, well price will solve everything.”
Kyle: “I said thanks, give me the gold.”

Here’s the link to that interview with Kyle Bass: “I’ll Take My Gold, Please”

The Daily Coin chatted with GATA’s Bill “Midas” Murphy about the current degree of manipulation in the silver market. The banking cartel is trapped, in a sense. The only resolution of this dilemma is a much higher price of silver – the free market solution – or war:

  1. Bitcoin has stolen gold’s thunder and silver’s too. If a BTC ETF is permitted, then it will soar even more. Sometimes I feel this whole mania is engineered by the bankster cartel to divert attention from gold.

    1. Nah. Follow the real money. The Indians and Chinese are buying way more gold than cryptos. Doubt the Indians are even buying cryptos. Cryptos are a retail investor’s game. Small-change. Now, maybe there will be a crpto-gold-backed currency that will be the new reserve currency, but it will be backed by gold.

      1. My wife has never heard of Bitcoin and when I explained to her what it is and that people are paying 2k per coin, she was like “what for? someone will take your 2k and you get nothing tangible in return”. I can’t believe the action in BTC is real and not an orchestrated psy op.
