*Editor note: With sentiment near all-time lows for the entire bull market, we thought it apropos to bring back SRSrocco’s viral, comprehensive FUNDAMENTAL ANALYSIS on the forces that will push silver over $100/oz. 
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.

While it is true that the gold & silver miners have underperformed the bullion… I believe we are going to see a different story in these stocks in the next several years.  Right now, you can’t give the da*n things away.  Of course, it’s not as bad as the end of 2008… early 2009, but the sentiment is pretty bad.

I believe the gold and silver miners have been hammered… yes.  I disagree with many of those on KWN that the stocks are way UNDERVALUED… they AIN’T

I believe the stocks are being properly valued to the price of the metals… however, we all know the metals are manipulated.
Once we start to see the revaluation of GOLD to some trade settlement backing and we have a devaluation of the dollar, there will be a huge run into precious metals… probably before hand as well as the stocks.
Money will have to flow into gold and silver stocks.

After receiving a great deal of emails and replies on my declining ore grade work in the top gold and silver miners, I thought I would write this post to clarify a few misunderstandings.

The industry practice of mining and processing lower grade ore from a section of the mine is a short term practice that will not impact the DECLINING OF ORE GRADES BY THE AGING OF THE MINE all that much.
