silver oil ratio

Based on the historic 1960’s oil-silver ratio, the current price of silver should be $50 an ounce!
According to the 1960’s Oil-Silver ratio of 1.3/1, the price of silver would have peaked in 2011 at $85.58, and would still be $50 with the current price of a barrel of oil at $64
The U.S. & Global Retirement Markets are being propped up by the Fed and foreign central banks.  Without this continued manipulation, the value of most paper assets would implode.  Furthermore, the coming peak of global oil production will be the final nail in the CENTRAL BANK’S COFFIN.

As the value of the highly leveraged financial-derivatives market heads south in earnest, investors will be forced to move back into hard assets, such as the precious metals and commodities.
This will push the value of these assets up to levels thought unimaginable.

$50 silver is coming… however that will probably be just the beginning stage of a much higher price in the future.

silver eagle sales

In the wake of a MONSTROUS sales spike with silver’s dip to $14, Silver American Eagles sales have soared above 43 million oz in 2014, a new all-time annual sales record for the second consecutive year. 
In addition, I believe sales of the 2015 Silver Eagles will be very strong in the beginning of the year.  Today, the price of gold and silver are skyrocketing as the broader stock indices plummet.  This may be the sign precious metal investors have been waiting for… A REAL BOTTOM.
If we truly seeing the MOTHER OF ALL REVERSALS, 2015 may turn out to be quite the pivotal year.

JP Morgan

With all the third-quarter results finally out, the top primary silver miners as a group lost money producing silver at $19 an ounce.  This is not good news as the current price of silver is nearly $3 lower.
T
he fourth quarter will be extremely painful for the primary silver mining industry that actually produces wealth, unlike the Banking community that behaves more like a BLOOD SUCKING LEECH.

indian silver demand

In 2013 when the paper price of silver dropped off the proverbial cliff from $32 in February to under $20 by June, Indian silver demand increased dramatically.
Not only was 2013 a robust year for Indian silver imports…. at a staggering 5,819 mt, it blew away its previous record set in 2008 at 5,049 mt.

gold & silver sold out

The U.S. Mint had to suspend sales on November 5th due to its inventory being totally wiped out. 
The Royal Canadian Mint also put the sales of its Silver Maples on limited basis due to high demand as well.

If the Royal Canadian & U.S. Mint have difficulty now trying to meet demand for the 2-5% of public demand… what happens when the GREAT RUSH INTO GOLD & SILVER BEGINS??

silver bars

There was a huge development reported in the silver market last week as the GFMS is reporting SIGNIFICANT DRAWDOWNS of UK silver inventories:
With imports in the first ten months totalling a massive 169 Moz many vaults in the UK, traditionally the largest supplier to India, have seen significant drawdowns.

A drawdown of U.K. silver inventories may mean a REAL ACTUAL TIGHTNESS of wholesale silver (not retail) in the future. 

silver production

The GFMS is predicting that the official arrival of PEAK SILVER will occur in the next 2-3 years. 
Meanwhile, a draw-down of LBMA silver inventories may be the beginning sign of looming future physical delivery problems.

Official-Central-Bank-Gold-Demand

Something BIG changed after the collapse of the U.S. Investment and Housing Markets as a huge crack in the Fiat Monetary System took place.  After the world nearly disintegrated under the debt-based U.S Dollar system in 2008, some of the Central Banks of the world finally found MONETARY RELIGION.
At this time, and according to some of the more enlightened Central Banks, gold was no longer a worthless piece of metal whose sole purpose in government was to be pawned off to support a worthless paper monetary system.
In just a few years time, the huge flood of Central Bank gold into the market dried up and switched to become a large source of demand.

Yen-Gold

Since Japan’s December 2012 turn to “Abenomics”, Gold and the Yen have moved tick for tick. 
The more Yen Japan prints, the farther the price of gold fallsahhhh the irony that gold, the finite measuring stick of infinite currencies, seems now only to be measuring the depths TPTB will go to hide currencies relative worth!
Note in the chart below the relatively mild dollar movement vs. the strong correlation of gold vs. the Yen…particularly gaining strength since the onset of “Abenomics” in late 2012:

The amount of leverage in the U.S. Dollar fiat currency system reached an all time high in 2013.  Even though the growth in total U.S. currency more than doubled since the collapse of the Housing and Investment banking system in 2008, the majority of the increase was from just one bill in particular.
U.S. Department of Engraving and Printing issued more $100 Federal Reserve Notes in 2013, than in any year prior.
The total face value of the $100 bills printed in 2013 were $443 billion, the cost was just a mere $580 million… basically one-tenth of a percent of the cost of the face value.
If we extrapolate this further, at the current price of gold (including Friday’s HUGE MOVE UP) of $1,170 an ounce, it would take twelve $100 bills to purchase an ounce of gold…. with a little change left over.
However, if we compare the costs below, we can see owning PHYSICAL GOLD is a much better and safer deal when the Fiat Monetary FAN finally hits the COW EXCREMENT:

JP Morgan only has 577,937 oz of gold remaining in its vaults.   A few weeks ago, JP Morgan experienced a ONE DAY removal of 321,500 oz from its warehouse stocks.   This is not a trend JP Morgan can afford to continue.
Furthermore, total Comex gold inventories fell nearly 2 million oz since its high of 10 million ounces at the end of August.
This is a 20% decline of total gold warehouse stocks in just three months.

China gold

Chinese gold investment demand increased more than five times in 2013 compared to 2008, yet even the chart below doesn’t represent the true increase.
If we assume that total Chinese gold demand in 2013 was double the figure put out by  World Gold Council, we can assume that physical gold bullion investment demand was probably more like 700-800 metric tons, and not the 400+ mt.
Which means 2013 Chinese physical gold investment demand is probably 10 times greater than what it was in 2008.
It’s hard to tell if the World Gold Council underestimated other regions or countries, but I highly doubt Americans increased physical gold investment demand as the majority of U.S. citizens are still brainwashed into believing DIGITS in a bank or brokerage account is wealth.
