Jason Burack of Wall St for Main St had on returning guest “The Doc” to discuss a potential wholesale silver shortage.
Here’s the link to the article so you can come to your own conclusions.
During this 25+ minute interview, Jason asks Doc about the journey of silver and gold from the mine site to bars and coins at the bullion dealer.
Then, they discuss Doc’s controversial article about a potential shortage.
Doc thinks through his sources there’s evidence of a developing shortage.
He thinks sentiment levels for precious metals are much worse than 2008.
Jason and Doc discuss whether silver can ever be in a true shortage and also discuss the supply/demand fundamentals of physical metal instead of the paper price.
The Doc’s Full Interview with Wall St. for Main St. is Below:
Investors are terrified of another economic, financial or monetary crisis, and they are rapidly shifting their assets to real money that they hold in their physical possession.
In this MUST SEE interview, Jeff Brown presents us with some stunning statistics regarding the amount of silver required by China to meet its 5-yr plan to install 100 gigawatts of solar (by 2020).
It takes 236 metric tonnes of silver per gigawatt of solar energy. This translates into 8.3 million ounces per gigawatt of solar energy output. If China installs 100 gigawatts in the next 5 years, this will require 26,300 metric tonnes, which is 731.6 million ounces of silver.
“It looks like China is trying to get its hands on all the silver it can find.”
The open interest in Comex silver futures hit an new all-time high as of the close of Thursday’s trading at 191,663 contracts. This is 958 million ounces of paper silver – about 19% greater than the world’s annual production of silver. To say this amount of open interest in silver is “absurd” is an insult to the word “absurd.”
This farcical degree of manipulation exceeds any market abuse I can recall in nearly 30 years of market experience.
The Doc from SD Bullion and Silver Doctors and our friend Eric Dubin from News Doctors join us at the SGTReport to discuss the very latest developments in the global precious metals markets where we see India on track to import 33% of ALL PHYSICAL silver on planet earth in the 2015.
We also discuss recent evidence of a gold bullion run on the Comex, the potential for hyperinflation of the Dollar, and much more.
So settle in, buckle up and thanks for tuning in!
While demand for U.S. Silver Eagles declined a bit during the first quarter of 2015, the Royal Canadian Mint sold the most Silver Maples ever.
Investors need to realize the GREAT FINANCIAL FIRE is coming.
It’s best to make sure you have physical gold and silver insurance BEFORE the fire destroys your financial home.
Many of the top precious metal analysts state that gold is the premium asset and insurance hedge during a financial collapse. We hear this time and time again. However, if we look at the data during the near collapse of the U.S. Banking and financial system in 2008, gold wasn’t the most sought after precious metal:
When the Dollar finally goes down in history as another failed FIAT CURRENCY, wealth will come by how many ounces of silver you own… not paper.
Since 2005, precious metals investors purchased a staggering 1.36 billion ounces of silver coins and bars.
If we look at the AMAZING chart below, we can see how much greater physical silver demand is over paper:
There are two charts every precious metals investor needs to see. The U.S. Mint is celebrating its 30 year anniversary producing Gold and Silver Eagles and if we look at the sales data of these two Official precious metal legal tender coins going back to 1986, we find some very interesting trends.
The U.S. Mint sold an average of 34.9 million Silver Eagles from 2008-2014 compared to 7.2 million from 1986-2007.
Investors purchased nearly 5 times more Silver Eagles a year after the Great U.S. Economic Collapse in 2008, than they did from 1986-2007.
In contrast, the U.S. Mint only sold an average of 50% more Gold Eagles from 2008-2014 compared to the yearly average from 1986-2007.
Essentially, the sales increase in Silver Eagles outperformed Gold Eagle sales by 10 to 1 since 2008!
Sales of U.S. Mint Silver Eagles started off strong this year with 3.6 million sold in the first two reporting days of 2015!
The U.S. Mint starting selling Gold Eagles last week with 51,500 ounces reported on the first day of sales. The U.S. Mint released the official first day of Silver Eagle sales on January 12th.
As we can see from the chart below, the U.S. Mint sold 2,958,000 Silver Eagles on January 12th, then another 656,000 on Tuesday, January 13th. So far this year, the U.S. Mint sold 3,614,000 Silver Eagles compared to 56,500 oz of Gold Eagles:
David Morgan joins the SGTReport to discuss the unprecedented demand for American Silver Eagles.
The question is, WHO is buying all of this PHYSICAL silver?
Because typically as the price of an asset falls, retail investors flee. Has JP Morgan itself been snatching up tens of millions of ounces of the precious metal in the form of silver Eagles as the criminal bank drives the price down via the COMEX? It’s what Ted Butler calls “The perfect crime”. Is he right?
Either way, those in the know win, because we understand that PHYSICAL silver is in very high demand – and its very, very precious.
When it comes to global silver demand growth over the past decade, the coin and bar investment category is the big winner. Unfortunately, the media tends to focus on growth of industrial silver consumption, while investment demand continues to take a back seat.
2014 global silver coin and bar demand may actually be closer to 230-240 Moz, than the 192 Moz figure GFMS forecast in the preliminary report.
Regardless, the huge increase in silver coin and bar investment demand over the past decade took place by less than 5% of the population… probably more like 2%.
What would happen to global silver coin and bar investment demand if only say 10-15% of the population became interested??
