Bank of England Warns of an ‘Abrupt’ Financial Collapse Due To Climate Emergency

A Realistic Argument PROVING $2,432 Gold and $149 Silver
Yep keep stacking and when the price goes to Da Moon run on down to your local bullion dealer and sell it back for fiat.
Makes sense to me
Or maybe head off to the pub, order a schooner for all the patrons and give the bartender a kilo of silver.
Do not expect change !

My advice for what it is worth is to be like water.
That is, take the path of least resistance, go with the flow.
Furthermore look after your body, stop eating garbage, get fit somehow, anyhow.
Surround yourself with family and friends you can love and trust.
Life is short, do not waste time, spend it being productive and helping others.

This month is showing a possible reversal and if price stays above 15 it will be a good time to load up.

No I do not believe that anyone is screwing with the price.
There has been selling of physical.
My call 29 March for silver to hit 14.70 has come very close and could go lower.
Butler does not have a clue and with his mindset that the market is rigged should have made him a lot of dollars by simply going short.

Good questions !
Butler has never been right and I am going back years.
Silver has been in massive downtrend for 8 years and will likely be a very good long term investment when that trend changes.
But that day could still be a long way off.
Buy low sell high is a good maxim. Simply wait till trend changes and go all in.
For me that would be Coins and small bars.

What should the gold/silver ratio be  (2)
"Gold is money and everything else is credit" JPM
Silver of course has also been used as money, but is not as good as gold due to a less stable stock to flow ratio.
Given that the amount of gold that has ever been mined is still is in existence, gold should be used as the denominator to value all other goods, silver included.
I think that looking at a gold /silver ratio is basically pointless.

Don’t Trade Last Week’s Silver Story!  (6)
Hi.
When you trade in the futures markets you are opening a contract.
That could be sell 10 x Dec Lean Hogs at such and such.
Theoretically when that contract expires you would have to deliver on that contract e.g. 10x 40,000 lbs of Lean Hog to the buyer.
I assume that happens, but speculators close out the contract before expiry date as a cash settlement.

Same with Gold. It is a contr...

Norcini: Gold is not in backwardation  (2)
I have read Weiner's and Norcini's recent articles. Both good.
The fact remains that some buyers of Gold are willing to pay a higher price at spot NOW, rather than get it at a cheaper price some time in the not too distant future(s)

I might add that long time holders and hoarders of gold are not likely to buy ( i.e swap for) $USD any time soon.

Analyzing The Dow Jones Industrial Average
I wish Dan well with his puts and what now looks a " close and re-evaluation"
My problem with his analysis here is that he "favours bearish potential" and without waiting for confirmation of a breakout of a" broadening top" goes and gets some puts.
This is completely opposite to his silver analysis where he (says) he won't trade till there is a closing breakout of certain levels.
