Physical silver bullion sales exploded at SDBullion Wednesday, hours before the London Fix price setting mechanism was set to end on August 14th.  
The London fix, which has been in place for 117 years dating back to 1897,  announced in April that the daily silver fix would end on August 14th, when Deutsche Bank, under investigation by Germany’s BaFin for market manipulation vacated its seat and was unable to find a buyer.

SDBullion trader Jennifer Linhart stated that physical silver sales were five times normal volume Wednesday, as investors scooped up bullion ahead of any market disruption the end of the fix might cause:
“The phones were ringing off the hook all day, and silver sales were about 5 times normal for the day.  We didn’t see much of any change in gold, everyone was buying silver.”

  • The Squeeze is On! Gold & Silver spike through $1300 & $20- is the next major bull move underway?

The SD Weekly Metals & Markets with Guest Host Alasdair Macleod is below:

After the standard post FOMC metals smash that has occurred after 95% of the FOMC statement releases over the past 7 years never materialized yesterday, one had to wonder whether a short squeeze was imminent. 
It appears the short squeeze is on as silver has shot through major resistance at $20 on the COMEX open, and after a quick retest of the level, is again shooting vertically higher with a last of $20.90, a 3 month high!

In this EXCLUSIVE, MUST LISTEN interview with The Doc, Eric Sprott dissects the fundamentals in the gold and silver markets, coverage of manipulation finally reaching the mainstream, and reveals his updated outlook on gold & silver.
Eric discusses why the precious metals options markets always expire at MAX PAIN for the customers, and why he urges all PM investors to STAY OUT of the futures options markets, and simply accumulate physical metal.
Sprott explains how PM manipulation shifted from being conducted solely by the Central banks to the dealers active daily participation that we see now, and discusses how much he personally lost when a Barclays trader manipulated gold down into the London fix.  

Regarding his price outlook for the metals, with silver trading under $20 and gold trading near $1250, is Eric still looking for new highs in 2014?
His answer might shock you.

Ron PaulCongressman & former Presidential Candidate Ron Paul joins the show this week, discussing:

  • Putin’s response to US sanctions with economic retaliation- implications for US economy & the US Dollar- It is very significant, dumping of US dollars has begun…The dollar can’t be maintained.  One reason the dollar has been sustained as well as it has been is who wants to buy yuan or euros?  But ultimately they will buy the real money, and that’s gold!
  • Paul on the Coming collapse of the dollar & all fiat currencies:  Officials in charge of monetary policy are very aware of what’s coming– they believe as long as it is orderly they will be ok…The problem is when people lose confidence in a currency, they lose confidence completely.  There’s nothing orderly about it!  There’s always a panic, and that’s hard to manage.   There will be a day when people will panic in the financial markets, not only in the dollar, but in the world-wide system!

bulgeThe detection of the rapid rise in USTreasury Bonds in the Belgium official central bank account has aroused broad and deep suspicions.
The TIC report indicated that Russia indeed dumped a record $26 billion in January, equal to 20% of all of its holdings, bringing its post-March total to just over $100 billion.
The question must be raised whether a hidden party has joined Russia in the dumping process.
Clearly, the Belgium Bulge indicates a late stage of collapse.  The game is fast changing, using big hidden channels in the monetary war. 
History might be repeating itself with a financial war-front Battle of the Belgium Bulge, a pincer movement to capture Western gold and form the Anti-USD Central Bank.
T
he Belgium Bulge means a big Sovereign Type Entity is in the Game, who refuses to take losses but instead continues to post collateral with a goal toward taking Gold Delivery.
