Is This The Beginning Of The Next Silver Rush
This report is a PAID ADVERTISEMENT from Far below the Nevada desert, past ancient mine shafts and rock-strewn caverns, there could be a fortune waiting to be made by one small company. A fortune in silver. A mine that inspired the silver rush in the 1880s, that was tapped once more in the 1960s, could again prove a boon to miners using the latest technologies to tap unexplored and unexploited mineral deposits. It could prove to be a great re-discovery in the history of silver minin

  Why You Must Own Silver in 2018
While Gold is very close to a major breakout (in price) its strength has not filtered down to Silver yet. Gold is 3% away from a major breakout and comfortably above its long-term moving averages. However, Silver is well below its 2016 high and is currently battling its 200-day moving average. But that is okay. Silver typically lags and underperforms Gold until Gold gains momentum or breaks key resistance. A major breakout in Gold this year and its effect on Silver is just one reason why Silver

James Turk: Gold, Silver and the Coming Economic Crisis - Rory Hall
Over the past three weeks, approximately 11 trading days, silver has suffered one of the longest downward spirals in a great many years and some have even argued this is the longest ever. I try not to look a gift horse in the mouth and simply use this manipulated beating to acquire more money at a more favorable exchange rate. Some people call it the “price” of silver, but in doing so the monetary history of silver is discredited and wiped from memory. This has to change; but I digress. I

Dead Men Walking
The narrative thus far – after decades of allowing themselves to be led in and out of COMEX silver futures contracts by their commercial counterparties, several managed money traders appear to have woken up to the fact they’ve been duped all along. A key component of the silver manipulation for the past 30 years has been the knee-jerk and mechanical reaction of the managed money traders to collectively sell whenever the commercials rigged prices lower beyond certain moving averages. Ditto for bu

Silver Sleeping On the Job
In Roman and Greek Mythology, the First Age was called Golden, the Second Age Silver. Apollo, the god of truth and light, and teacher of medicine, carried a silver bow. The hieroglyph of  Isis (Egyptian moon goddess) is a crescent and images of her are usually reproduced with her standing on the Crescent. This has also become the symbol for silver – on old maps a crescent shows the location of a silver mine. Islamic alchemy gave silver an important place, alchemical procedures were define

Hidden in Full View
After studying the silver market closely for more than three decades, I find it nearly unbelievable that its single most important price factor is widely unknown. Admittedly, the vast majority of the investment world has little interest in silver and that’s unlikely to change any time soon. But underappreciation has its merits in the investment world.  After all, silver does have a history of climbing in price higher and faster than just about any other asset and a multitude of factors now point

Is Gold more Important than Silver
When the run to gold begins, the public race for silver will overtake gold by a wide margin as people immediately decide to put their faith in something tangible, and silver is far more affordable for the world's population than gold is. At this point, many in our community think that some tie to gold is inevitable. Remember the golden rule; "he who owns the gold makes the rules", and the global banking establishment still own roughly half of the world's gold, but for practical purpo

Silver Warming Up Nicely
Silver Analyst Posted Apr 21, 2016Since silver hit a low of $13.63 on the 14th December last year, it has been generally up for silver with some predictably wild turns on the way. As of today, silver has risen as high as 25% while its big brother, gold, has seen a parallel rise of 23% to its recent high on March 11th. Since then, silver has been making up lost ground on gold to now slightly outperform gold.But that is why investors buy silver, is it not? It is a leveraged play on gold w

If gold is to continue rally, History Favors Silver to Follow
If Gold is to Rally, History Favors Silver to Follow; If gold is to rally, history favors that silver has to follow.   A look at the last 22 years shows this is where silver usually takes its cues and begins to appreciate more than gold.  Is there any fundamentals that suggest higher prices? Investors seem to already be aware that silver prices are cheap relative to gold as you can see by this chart below by Smaugld.  A surge of buying in the last six months has come into play. But there

In World War I severe material shortages played havoc with production schedules and caused lengthy delays in implementing programs.

Gold/Silver Ratio 2015: Can Silver Rise When Gold Falls 
The Gold/Silver Ratio has hit 5-year highs. Analysts say that makes silver cheap... SILVER looks cheap right now, and not only because it has dropped 70% in Dollar terms over the last three-and-half years, writes Adrian Ash at BullionVault. That, says Yahoo Finance, is the view of smaller private investors, apparently "wedded to [the] idea that the Fed is going to destroy the Dollar" even as QE ends and rate-hikes are next.
