PLEASE CHECK YOUR EMOTIONS AT THE DOOR AND REVIEW THE FUNDAMENTALS!

There are tremendous forces at work that will push silver over $100 an ounce.

According to the  2012 World Silver Survey, total global silver investment demand has risen from only 31.6 million oz in 2002 to a staggering 282.2 million oz in 2011.  As world economic fiat based monetary system continues to deteriorate, investors are taking delivery of physical silver rather than holding on paper contracts that may not be backed by any metal whatsoever.

This has created a run on the LBMA… the largest metal exchange in the worldOnce the world ‘s liquid energy supply starts its inevitable decline from its current plateau, annual silver metal production will decline as well.  There will be no silver glut and there will be no silver available when the world’s fiat monetary system finally dries up and blows away.
Get ready.  The forces for pushing silver over $100 have just begun.

California_Gold_ProductionAs with all oil fields, there are only so many sweet spots and areas to drill.  The 63,000 barrels a day decline rate at the Bakken only has one way to go — and that’s higher.   If the present trend continues (highly likely) then we are going to see a daily decline rate of 75-85,000 barrels a day by the end of 2014.
Once the Bakken and Ealge Ford oil fields peak and decline, the United States has no other “ENERGY RABBIT” in its hat.

This is precisely why investors need to understand energy and why its important to own physical assets such as gold and silver.

What is taking place in North Dakota is the same thing that took place during the 1848-50′s California Gold Rush.  And that is a Big Migration of people with very little in the form of housing and services.

ALL BOOMS behave the same way.  After the BOOM, comes the BUST.  The N.D. Bakken Boom won’t be any different.
