silver bars

Understanding precious metal price reality is like walking through a house of mirrors.
Prices ought to go up during times of geopolitical crisis or tension. They typically do not.
They do predictably go down during certain monetary-related announcements or during paper market-related events such as options expiration.
Or any other times that are ultimately profitable for the large banks – because of the sheer size and concentration of their naked short positions.
For now, lawless financial intervention maintains the grand illusion.
For investors seeking shelter, preparation, and a physical store of wealth, silver prices represent the granddaddy of all subsidies – viewed upside and backwards.

silver rocket down

Silver and gold have an upside down rocket attached to them and they have been speeding downwards ever since they made their highs in 2011 and 2012, respectively.
Never mind the fact they are spoken for and used up as soon as they hit the market, never mind the fact they are hard to amass in great quantity, never mind the fact demand is high and production is steady.
What happens next is like the final act of a masterful play.

Look for this depressing scenario in the precious metals markets to continue for another 12 months and then, WHAM!!, worldwide economic collapse- the commercials crash silver and gold, flip their short positions to long cashing in near the bottom and stripping massive amounts of money away from the little people in the process (they always do).
I fully expect there to be some ups and downs before that worldwide economic crash.
I use no caution whatsoever in urging everyone to liquidate as much paper as possible and buy physical silver and gold at these prices.
Yes, the depression is going to last another year but after that no one will be able to buy ANY PHYSICAL once the world wide collapse is in full swing.

This year some 900,000 oz of silver on average have moved into or out from these six warehouses on a daily basis.
The daily average movement of silver into and out from the COMEX silver warehouses at 900,000 oz is equal to 28% of total world daily mine production.” -Ted Butler

Over 1 in every 4 ounces of silver that planet earth will bring out of the ground this year, will be shuffled through the vast halls of Comex warehouses.  Over 1 in 4.  The Comex system has gone from moving perhaps 1 million ounces of silver per week, to moving nearly 1 million ounces…per day!  In fact, in just the last two business days, the Comex has moved over a whopping 4 million ounces of silver!
As prices continue their descent for both gold and silver, it’s more important than ever to keep a clear focus on the implications of this price action, not just for investors like us(which are obvious), but also for those trying to orchestrate it.  It’s all a game of ounces in the end, for these banks, after all.  They must bring enough physical metal to deliver on their exchanges, both to investors, and to the industrial users.  There’s no “Plan B”.
Since both sources of demand won’t back off from their record level purchases, the bullion banks realize that they simply have to bring even more product to market. Their backs are against the wall hereThe moment the metal is not delivered to some large customer in size, is the precise moment the end to this game will begin.  That’s the Catch 22 of the situation though: the banks want lower silver prices, yet the lower the price goes, the more threatened their constant source of supply becomes.
The banksters are Trapped Like Rats

Only the Resolute Bulls Will Be Left Standing to Experience a Moon Shot to $2000 in 2014! 
Once all but the Resolute Bulls are wiped out, Gold and Silver will do an immediate price reversal and leave all who sold their Gold and Silver standing empty handed as the new 7-year Gold Bull market cycle Breaks away and runs into the end of 2014 and beyond!
Gold will spike in 2014 and the big question is will the spike hit $1600, $2000 or is $2000 much too low a target?
Cycle analysis gives price direction, NOT exact price,  so how high could the spike go?  

Only God knows; but the Gold Price Suppression Game that holds Gold down comes to an end in 2014!

Precious metals prices remain range-bound over the short-term after a devastating three year run.
From a technical standpoint, it doesn’t look great; we are stuck in this limbo of tightly controlled price limbo while the world continues to melt apart for the 99.9%.
COMEX positioning for the big banks and speculators has not changed that much over the last few months.
JPM’s short remains at around 50 days of world production.
In fact, these spec longs who have been hanging in throughout may be the reason we’ve remained range bound over the last couple of options expirations – like the one this week.
Prices are not going to move up from here until the paper pushers who control prices via the exchanges find a way to profit from it.

$2000_Gold_Image

Gold analyst Bo Polny has been predicting since May that gold will trade at $2,000 in 2014. 
In the wake of the latest smash to $1225, is Bo changing his tune and will we soon see gold place a new low below $1180, or is gold’s next stop still an astonishing $2,000/oz with only 3 months remaining in 2014? 

my-shorts-on-fire

Gold and silver have been pounded lower over the past month, contrary to their bullish seasonals.  This selling pressure has come from the usual suspects, American futures speculatorsThey’ve been busy aggressively dumping gold and silver futures, particularly on the short side.  But each time they pressed this bet in the past 15 months, gold soon surged higher.
Shorts are bullish since they must soon be covered.

Silver has also seen a huge spike in speculator shorting, raising the odds it too is on the verge of its own parallel short-covering rally when gold’s starts.

On the 13th anniversary of the 9/11 tragedy, Tod Fletcher of Consensus911.org joins us for a power packed show, discussing: 

  • Latest PM smash as gold trades down towards $1225 and silver breaks $18.50: did the metals FINALLY bottom overnight Thursday into Friday, or is a capitulation crash coming on the Sunday night Globex session? 
  • First signs of renewed silver shortage appear along with DOZENS of new FIRST TIME SILVER BUYERS contacting SDBullion to enter the market Thursday and into Friday- a sign the 3 year correction is ending? 
  • The smoking gun that 9/11 is a Conspiracy FACT
  • Tod reveals his view on the MOTIVES behind the largest False Flag attack in US history- was it war, the security/surveillance state, gold theft/cover up, OR ALL3?

banker treason

It’s easy to begin to think that everyone knows that there are no free markets in gold and silver,but the truth is that most folks don’t even know what gold and silver are.
I’m not saying these things to discourage our troops, on the contraryit’s astounding to think that the silver “market” is close to breaking, with so few people even knowing about silver, much less that its price is manipulated!
Not 1 person in 10,000 knows that gold and silver are manipulated by Western Central banks and bullion banks.
Yet, there’s not even enough silver in the world right now to deliver to that 1 in 10,000!  That’s my point.  That’s what makes this all so surreal.
I know it doesn’t feel like it sometimes, but the silver market riggers are losing, and badly.  The consciousness about this issue is slowly changing, there’s no doubt about it.
Do not fear $17 or even $15 silver, should it come, and it may.  The more hilariously low these banks press it, the quicker they will beat themselves.
Do not fear this game continuing indefinitely, for despite how it feels on days like today, this silver and gold rigging game cannot and will not last forever, either.
Laugh at their games, and know their end is coming, for the extreme desperation of these banks will hasten the day upon which this crime in progress will be finished.

The latest COT reveals the commercials very involved in this latest price crash.
In gold, we see speculators packing on 16,790 shorts and a huge short covering by the commercial.  That’s some 2.14 Billion in additional shorts by the speculators!
The latest cartel raid continues the long depression in precious metals as gold and silver are still going down, down, down, South of the Border!
It may take a little longer but a price rebound is coming which will bring interest in precious metals into focus again as they need to keep up this façade of a real market for another year into 2015.75.

A Perfect Storm for Mining
While it may seem to some that mines might be able to continue producing the amount of silver they’ve been accustomed to producing well into the future, the truth is that these mines, especially primary silver mines, are starting to hit the silver wall of reality.
With the costs of petroleum and diesel soaring, ore grades plunging, and the price for their product free-falling, there’s a perfect, catastrophic storm brewing in the mining sector.
The banksters’ precious silver supply, despite all their efforts, is stagnant, and actually decreasing.   They’re moving heaven (and twice as much earth) just to sustain this inadequate supply just.a.little.bit.longer.
The moment the metal stops, or even slows its flow in any reasonable quantity, is the moment the scheme comes crashing down. That’s a problem too, because the evidence is mounting that we are headed into a “peak silver” scenario.

It gets worse for our bankster friends massively short silver, much worse…

silver nightmare

Humanity is returning to its long-lost silver roots: fiat currencies, both of the United States, and the world governments at large, have been compromised.   They have long ceased to be a reliable stores of wealth, or an asset unto themselves.  Fiat currencies are simply paper scrip, denoting the debt of a system of large, private banks.  Whereas, silver has been money for thousands of years.
Everywhere you look, the trend is the same: people are awakening to the state of the world’s financial health, and are swapping their currencies for silver and gold.  This goes counter to the interests and desires of these banks, who wish to keep their privilege of being the sole creators of these units of debt that people mistake for “money”.  Silver is a direct threat to their debt/currency system, which is why they rig its price on a constant, perennial basis.
The problem is that their market rigging has created a world in which silver is just too cheap.
 Way too cheap.

manipulation
There is not one journalist (of any mainstream “news gathering organization”) who is working to uncover what could be thestory of the century.”
There’s a sentence (a “mind frame” really) that applies to such frustrating scenarios. 
 “Sh*t, I’ll do it my freaking self.
Here are 17 ways the precious metals miners can fight back against PM manipulation by the banking cartel:

If you want to know why your holdings of physical gold and silver have remained under suppression, it is because both are anathema to paper fiat currencies, and the ones who are in control, the moneychangers, will not tolerate competition against their fiat Ponzi monopoly scheme.
Not until the elite bankers lose control of the fiat US “dollar” can you expect to see dramatic price increases for gold and silver, irrespective of any and all fundamentals and more widely recognized efforts of manipulation.
The only way the elites can exist is through deceit, hiding behind the scenes but unquestionably in total control, with emphasis on the word “total.”  If anyone is of the limiting belief that the Rothschilds, moneychangers, bankers, New World Order [NWO] is some kind of conspiracy theory, either take the time and do some studied research on factual events and read several  court cases, or simply stay the course for being fleeced and enslaved by unwitting assent.

It is a burning shame in the eyes of all the world that the United States, the greatest producer of silver, will not protect her own precious metal productIt is a case without a parallel in the history of nations down through all the ages.”
During 1902 and 1903 an organization was founded which I came to regard as history’s most interesting organization.  This is The Pilgrims Society of London and New York, as those who have followed my presentations are aware. This marks the start of a series of eleven presentations.

We will examine 15 names derived from lists of this organization from the following years—1902-1903; 1914; 1924; 1933; 1940; 1949; 1957; 1969; 1974; 1980; and the final installment, to be derived from names found by other means than rosters—because to date, there ARE no rosters for this group available since 1980!
