COMEX Registered Inventories Aug 5 2015One or more major players “jumped the queue” and took delivery of about 6.5 million more ounces of silver out of COMEX warehouses than anticipated at the beginning of the month.
Now, since this article was written (Aug 3rd), there were three more large net withdrawals:

2012 Amercian Silver Eagle Silver Eagle sales in June and July 2015 (10,369,000) were 123% higher than June and July 2014 sales (4,648,000).  Not only has the lower price motivated record Silver Eagle demand, but so has the financial turmoil stemming from the Greek situation in Europe. 
Does a massive WHOLESALE shortage loom?

Top Silver Producers Jan-May 2015In a stunning development, the world’s largest silver producing countries reported big declines in recent months.  This was surprising because the top two producers, Mexico and Peru, stated positive growth in the first two months of the year.
However, silver production from these two countries reversed this trend by declining in April and May.

bomb explosionInvestors worried about the coming explosions in the financial system purchased record numbers of Gold Eagles in July.  Not only are July sales of Gold Eagles the highest in 2015, they surpassed all monthly totals for the past two years…. and we still have another week remaining.

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. 

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.

dollar collapseWith the tremendous amount of volatility in the movement of bond yields over the past month, the Mother of all Black Swans may finally take place in the latter part of the year.
It seems as if precious metals investors can sense this…

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.

FOAFOFOA and its hardcore followers look at the world through shiny gold-colored glasses The folks at FOFOA believe the future value of gold is heading to the moon, while silver gets flushed down the toilet.
Here is one of their excerpts:

When the coming paper illusion price of gold is destroyed, sending its trading price way up and way down, several times, before shutdown… the thinner paper markets of lesser metals will be absolutely devastated. Yes we will see $50.00 silver in our time… $50.00 for a hundred ounce bar that is!  No less a relative price decline for the other metals is in store. Even if these actual dollar numbers prove incorrect… relative inflation adjusted prices will show the exact same ratios to gold. The gain will truly be in gold!

Indian Silver Imports Jan-Apr 2015As it pertains to silver, something big is taking place in India.  While investors were amazed by the massive volume of Indian silver imports last year, 2015 may turn out to be a real whopper.  Indians are buying so much silver, they are on track to surpass 2014’s record by a wide margin. 
So, how much silver is India importing? 

Bank Fraud Settlement vs Global Silver ValueThe amount of fraud taking place in the major banks throughout the world is staggering to say the least.  Ironically, the only market that isn’t manipulated, is the silver market… so they say.
When we add up the total fines and settlements paid by the Banking Industry since 2009… it’s a serious amount of fiat currency.
How Much?  Amazingly, the major banks paid more in fines than the cumulative value of all silver mined since 2009.
Just think about that for a minute.
The amount of fraud and criminal activity at these major banks forced them to pay fines greater than the value of world silver mine supply
