For some, what is coming will seem like a great time.  For others, who lose everything in the global crash, it will seem like starting over again. 
After the point the precious metal’s dealers literally shut down their phone lines, TRILLIONS of dollars in paper fiat capital is going to roar into the precious metals paper fiat fiasco better known as the New York Commodities Exchange and other fiat futures casinos around the world.

collapseThe retail silver shortages we have experienced in the market are WARNING SIGNS for the BIG EVENT to come. 
If you are waiting for a signal that a global wholesale silver shortage has begun, it will likely be too late to acquire physical metal.  Why?  Because it has never happened before.
So, when the world bond and stock markets finally collapse under a mountain of paper, leverage and debt, we will witness one hell of a GLOBAL RUN ON SILVER. 

Jamie DimonIt’s enough that the mainstream financial media seems hell-bent of bashing gold. (Of course, silver gets hardly a mention). But GATA’s Chris Powell has been on a tirade of late, picking apart the lower hanging fruit of these theories and misplaced assumptions, if not outright desperate attempts to rationalize technically driven market prices. 
The following answer to a gold insider is a must read:

How do you mention manipulation without actually saying it?   Well, if you work for Kitco and your name is either Neils Christensen or Peter Hug you do it this way:

Christensen: “The one bright spot for the precious metals market appears to be the physical market as the U.S. Mint reported a 469-percent increase in July coin sales compared to last year.”

smashSomething broke in the derivatives markets, and there has been an ongoing smoldering fire just under the surface.
The criminals at the too big to prosecute mafia organizations, formerly known as banks, have been doing their level best to keep the fire from coming to the surface.
The desperate behavior by the Central Planners reeks of the unmistakable scent of fear.
If you think the Wall Street criminals aren’t scared right now, then explain this:

As you know, Martin Armstrong has been saying some pretty damaging things about those of us who believe in and fight the gold and silver manipulation operations.
He continues to blame US for people losing money for investors when he should be fighting WITH US and blaming those that rig the markets for the losses.

beach ballThe elites want to destroy your belief in the value of owning golf and silver, and they have reenforcing price down despite the overwhelming demand for both.  That should embolden your resolve even more.  For how much longer this can go on, no one knows.  What you can know with a great amount of certainty is that Newton’s 3rd Law of Physics will kick in: for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.
This assures you that the distorted action to the downside will reward the faithful with an equally distorted reaction in the opposite direction.  It is a matter of time.

manipulationThe blatant manipulation of the gold market in conjunction with the rabid dissemination of anti-gold rhetoric from both the financial press and Wall Street reeks of desperation – desperation to keep a lid on the one market signal that would undermine the elitists’ perpetuation of the U.S. dollar-based systemic Ponzi scheme which enables them to loot and confiscate middle class wealth.

    Sprott’s John Embry Provides MUST LISTEN Analysis On Metals Capitulation & Shortage Below:

sprottThe demand numbers I’ve seen are way beyond the supply.  I think that Western central banks surreptitiously make up the missing supply and that someday they’re going to look in the cupboard and realize that it’s bare.
So far, everyone in the press is downplaying gold but I haven’t lost any conviction whatsoever.

empty-vaultA client of mine, a jeweler just called.  His refiner called him – looking to buy gold or silver. The refiner has very tight stock. My client buys “shots” to melt and builds into rings etc. His refiner volunteered info on the selling this am – says the system is manipulated, which shocked the client only in that it was openly admitted. When my client’s refiner needs product you know there is a shortage. This is the first time in 10 years this refiner said there were shortages.  – A colleague and friend of mine who manages high net worth accounts

silver shortageSomeone or something has ponied up about $50,000,000 in order to “jump the queue” and take immediate delivery of 3,500,000 ounces of silver this month.

moonThe tail end of the June / July Final Capitulation wave down to wipeout and frustrate any remaining Gold and Silver Bulls before a NEW Bull market suddenly arrives that leaving all but the permabulls behind is right before us here and now. 
The Gold & Silver Paradigm Shift with Price Explosion referenced in prior updates continues to be expected before the end of this month with a powerful vertical move in both Gold and Silver, while the stock markets fall.
It has been a long 4-year road… our time is almost here!

my-shorts-on-fireWhat if the withering selling pressure devastating gold and silver this summer is artificial?  What if the traders dumping the precious metals don’t actually own them in order to sell them?  What if 2015’s apparent glut of gold and silver has been mostly borrowed first and then sold?  And what if these short sellers used extreme leverage to dump these metals?  This scenario radically changes precious metals’ outlook.
A record short-covering frenzy is imminent…
