U.S. Retirement Market 1974-2014The once great U.S. Empire is now in big trouble.  The U.S. Empire is on its last legs. 
At some point, we will not be able to trade worthless Fiat Dollars for our oil imports.  Falling domestic oil production, on top of falling oil imports will wreak havoc on the U.S. Economy and most paper and physical assets.  Thus, the collapse of the U.S. Retirement Market will cause an EPIC SURGE in the price of gold.
This is why it is best to see the WRITING ON THE WALL and invest in gold and silver before its impossible to acquire the metal.

silverLast year was the first time since these records began, that world government silver sales were ZERO
What this means is that while governments may or may not have more gold to dump onto the market, from this point onthey are out of state-owned, physical silver for all rigging intents and purposes.
Mine supply is the only card they have left, as silver’s monstrous flow, worldwide, is literally “hand to mouth”.
Meanwhile, something VERY interesting is brewing at the Comex…

empty-vault*UPDATE*  This just in from my source who said that there would be a shortage of silver at refiners by September/October:  Silver is tight as can be.  Nothing around in size
The bullion banks knew that the Mint was going to be forced to release the news that it was out silver – that’s why silver was slammed in the paper market when the Comex trading floor opened.
This is as criminal as it gets.

Meixico Silver Production April 2014 vs 2015With India importing record silver, including elevated imports into the United States, we could see REAL SHORTAGES by the second half of the year if investment demand surges due to a financial contagion stemming from a Greek Exit of the European Union.

We hosted Steve St. Angelo for a fascinating, if not startling, look at the big developments that look to have the west – and possibly the entire world – headed for an unexpected collapse.
When the system finally starts to unravel, the speed at which it will unravel and how it takes down the fiscal economy will be breathtaking.

silver bars

If physical silver’s Arch Nemesis is suddenly stockpiling silver bars at a pace that is only rivaled by the NATION of India, it’s only because the system itself has run its course, and there is nothing left to steal.
As I have long stated, I expect the big “escape” of silver’s price to only occur once their system is done.
So what does this bank know that has caused it to suddenly start stockpiling silver like there’s no tomorrow??

Trap 3I smell a trap in gold and silver.
I know that silver’s the best performing asset so far in 2015, but remember, that’s exactly how it started 2014 as well!
After that brief out-performance in 2014, the banking gators took the price down to the river-bottom, for a nice “death roll”.

US Mint

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:

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??
