When I look at the precious metals markets all I see are the numerous anomalies that are screaming value and opportunity.  The constant machinations of the bullion banks manipulating the markets and holding back Mother Nature has created distortions in the market place that present a real opportunity.  Let me explain. Look at the ratio of platinum to gold and it quickly becomes easy to see a real opportunity in trading gold for platinum. History tells us that it is a true anomaly to see platinum

All Roads Lead to the Bubble-City Danger Zone - Gary Christenson
Bubbles always pop, whether they exist in stocks, gold, confidence in the media, belief in central bank omnipotence, real estate, or debt. Yes, it could happen anywhere, and based on history, is likely. This time is not different, unless it will be worse… From Jared Dillian: “The Everything Bubble”“Also, nowadays, we have no idea what kind of malignant political forces will be unleashed if we have a real, hard-landing recession … Does it all get pinned on Trump? Probably. Does it push th

The End of Markets, Part I - Jeff Nielson
Readers in the Alternative Media may have noticed a distinct drop-off in the number of articles that are published on “the gold market” or “the silver market”. This is true even with respect to precious metals commentators. There is a very good reason for this. We no longer have markets. To prove this assertion, as always, the place to start is definition of terms. What is a market? There are a number of ingredients in any definition. However, first and foremost, a market is a forum for human

Surprise CFTC Gold/Silver Manipulation Announcement: Ted Butler
I was shocked by Friday’s announcement by the CFTC of an order and simultaneous settlement of manipulation charges in COMEX gold and silver futures. I first saw it in a Zerohedge article and subsequent articles on Bloomberg and in the Wall Street Journal, but all those accounts were somewhat off target compared to the CFTC announcement itself. This was one of those rare cases where the source announcement was much clearer than the articles describing it. I would ask you to take the time to read

Ted Butler: CFTC discovers some silver market manipulation after all
10:55a ET Monday, June 5, 2017 Silver market analyst Ted Butler notes today that last week's actions in U.S. District Court in Chicago and the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission in Washington against a former trader for Deutsche Bank who admitted manipulating the silver market covered the period in which the CFTC investigated silver market manipulation and proclaimed that it could not find anything actionable. Butler speculates that the CFTC's surprising action may have something to do w

Silver and NASDAQ Strength Will Reverse - Gary Christenson
Bubbles come and go. Silver and gold – 1980 Japanese Nikkei – 1990 NASDAQ – 2000 Mortgages and Real Estate – 2006 Bonds, Debt, Stocks, Real Estate – 2017 Examine the following graph of monthly data for 32 years of the NASDAQ 100 Index and Silver. We saw the NASDAQ bubble in 1999-2000, a rapid rise for silver in 2010 – 2011 and a large rise in the NASDAQ 100 during 2009 – 2017. Prices for both markets have often risen too far and too fast, and then corrected or crashed. The NASDAQ droppe

Silver: Train Leaving Station Soon! - Gary Christenson
Silver prices are rising along the bottom of a 20 year log scale trend channel (shown later). There are no guarantees in a manipulated paper market, such as COMEX silver, but it is possible that silver prices will collapse further, or more likely, move substantially higher, sooner rather than later. Silver prices COULD fall from their current level of $16 – $17 to under $10. Other events that COULD occur include: You could win the Powerball Lottery. The U.S. congress could balance the bud

  Bill Murphy: Silver – The Only Commodity 66 Cheaper Than 37 Years Ago!! - Rory Hall
Can you name any product, service or any item of any type that is 66% cheaper than it was in 1980? Of course not. There is one item on the planet that is cheaper today than it was in 1980 – silver. Why is that? How can that be? We have seen several of the too big to jail banks be assessed “fines” for rigging markets and funding terrorist. LIBOR and FOREX just to name the two biggest market rigging schemes conducted by 5 of the too big to jail banking cabal members. This is to say nothing o

Ted Butler expects silver explosion soon, but GATA has questions 
Silver market rigging investigator Ted Butler explains today why he thinks price suppression in silver is likely to end soon in an explosion because of the extreme and concentrated short position in the monetary metal. GATA can only hope that Butler's commentary will flow from his keyboard to the Great Market Manipulator's ear (and we don't mean Yellen). But we wouldn't bet too heavily on Butler's assertion that "all price manipulations come to an end," an assertion that may be of no more value

Silver price manipulation, is regulation putting a stop to it?
Fear of regulation may impede bank’s from manipulating London’s silver benchmark New regulations in 2018 have spooked bullion banks and silver fix operators Lack of liquidity in silver fix auction has lead to high volatility in the market Silver benchmark has strayed from spot price multiple times since 2016 No new silver benchmark operator lined up to take over in the Autumn No smoke without fire as actions point to silver price manipulation Silver remains suppressed and at a low price for inv

A Permanently High Plateau
Margin debt hits fresh new highs, but according to status quo puppets, nothing to worry about because its different this time. (i.e. just like 1929 – in the words of Irving Fisher, “a permanently high plateau” [of prosperity].) And in a sense such talk is correct, because the markets have never been more rigged, however even with this, the bureaucracy’s price managers will fail at some point (stocks usually peak a few months after a margin debt peak), as all faulty and unfair systems self-destru

Ted Butler: Another opportunity to induce the CFTC to do its job
An unusual confluence of seemingly unrelated factors may have created an opportunity to do something about the silver (and gold) manipulation. On Monday, April 10, two new officials assumed key roles with the Commodity Futures Trading Commission -- a new director of the Enforcement Division and the first chief officer of the newly-created Market Intelligence Unit. The main mission of both departments is to uncover and terminate market fraud and manipulation, the same overall prime mission of th

  The Myth of the Gold Supply Deficit 
Analyses based on annual supply and demand of gold appear on a daily basis, whether posted to gold web sites or in the financial media, many of them by the most respected analysts of gold mining shares. These articles typically show an imbalance between supply and demand, suggesting that there is a gold supply deficit. From there, the conclusion follows that a much higher gold price is required in order to bring supply and demand into balance.

A Word From Andy Schectman
For many years, the willingness of the world to accept dollars has been the key to the prosperity in the United States. Think about just how crazy it is that dollars created by the world’s biggest debtor nation, with nothing backing their value but the Government’s ability to tax and print, is accepted as the world’s reserve currency. The illusion of prosperity in the US, for years has been fostered by the grace of our foreign creditors. But it is becoming obvious, that these overseas investors

Managed Money Traders M.I.A. in Silver in Friday’s COT Report - Ed Steer
YESTERDAY in GOLD, SILVER, PLATINUM and PALLADIUM The gold price traded quietly lower in Far East trading on their Friday — and back below $1,200 spot, with the low tick of the day printed about ten minutes before the London open. It crept higher from there until at, or just after, the noon GMT silver fix. It was sold a bit lower from there — and about ten minutes before the COMEX open, it began to rally with some real authority, but ran into the usual long selle

  Learning to Prosper in Silver - Jeff Nielson 
We live in the era of the sound-bite. In our televised news, every subject – no matter the complexity – is presented in two minutes or less. Our newspapers are the print equivalent of the sound-bite. TV programs exist which present longer discussions of important subjects. News magazines exist which provide longer print features. But no depth of understanding is gained from such sources. Instead, we are simply bombarded with an agenda: the agenda of the handful of mega-corporations which co
