SD Midweek Update: Silver is on the move again, and we’ve discovered the exact reason for the price spike…
Everybody knows, too.
The dice have been loaded.
But now they’re smoothed over.
The weighted part bare for all to see.
The rigged dice are no longer suspicion.
They just don’t roll the same anymore.
No matter how they play it off.
And everybody knows, too.
But that’s not the reason.
Here is the reason.
Too lame a reason?
Here’s the thing: The fundamentals are finally taking over in the silver “market”.
It really is that simple.
Silver’s price is nowhere near silver’s value.
We’re going higher.
Much, much higher.
How high, and how soon?
Well, If I knew that, I’d be chillin’ on some secluded island beach somewhere sipping on pretty neon-colored frozen adult beverages with curly straws and little umbrellas sticking out of them.
But guess what?
Those days for the cartel are coming to an end.
You see, they know “how high” or “how low”, and, more importantly, they know “when”, because when you have infinite lives, unlimited ammo, cheat codes, pause, re-start and the ability to dial down the difficulty on a whim, that video game is pretty dang easy.
And that’s how the cartel has had it.
For far too long.
They’re losing control.
On Monday I said I see no reason we wouldn’t turbo boost up to $18.50, and look what we have here:
Exactly where I thought we were going.
OK, “Hey Half Dollar, do you even brag bro?”.
It’s not that hard.
The fundamentals are asserting themselves onto the market, finally.
So let’s recap the fundamental picture:
- National politics in most nations around the world are an absolute mess.
- Geo-politics around the world are an absolute mess.
- Politics in the United States are an absolute mess.
- The economies around the world are an absolute mess.
- The economy of the United States is an absolute mess.
- Markets around the world are an absolute mess.
- Markets in the United States are an absolute mess.
And, don’t for get this one, because it is the biggest fundamental reason of them all:
- The cartel has pretty much done everything they can to contain price, and they can’t do much more.
Since there’s been so much division everywhere, so few people can see what is going on, and more importantly, what is going down.
Everybody is either drunk on Trump’s Kool Aid, taking a deep dive into dead-end distractions like Epstein, side-tracked by pop-culture, confused, in denial, in-fighting, and so on and so forth.
Here are several camps the people are stuck in right now:
- US whites blame immigrants for all problems.
- US blacks blame whites for all problems.
- Gays blame Christians for all problems.
- Christians blame women’s lib for all problems.
- Millenials can’t blame anything because they’ve learned to be well behaved little communists who know nothing but complete obedience of and total submission to authority.
- Politicians blame the crazy white American males who wear red hats.
- Wussies blame guns.
I’ll just stop there and sum it up in one phrase: Divide & Conquer!
So do you see what we have going on in America?
We have one great big circle jerk of rage and blame.
But do you wanna know where blame lies?
No pun intended, but the blame lies in the mirror.
We have nobody to blame for anything except for ourselves.
Yet in 2019, the central banks and the governments have done a spectacular job of getting everybody to blame each other for the ills of society in general, and the markets and economy specifically.
The real problem is that our money has been corrupted by evil, fraudulent, Unconstitutional, dirty, Traitors, and money being the ultimate tool in society is no longer a tool at all for the vast majority of people.
In time, after the violence and after the riots, the people will learn.
It’s best to learn now, so that one may prepare ahead of time – with gold & silver.
I hope that in your preparations, you understand that having the insight to see what is coming, that you are good at heart and will help to rebuild for the better when the market crash and economic collapse is no longer possible to ignore.
But I digress.
Here’s the thing: Silver has so much catching-up to do, and not even to gold, but to the simple fundamentals, and that is exactly what is happening.
The cartel will be overwhelmed very soon, especially as any Americans who have not yet turned into zombies come to their senses and begin to adapt.
Gold could be above $1600 very soon:
If gold makes another leg-up from here, all I can ask is, “got silver”?
The gold-to-silver ratio is plunging as expected:
Silver is still a no brainer at this point.
You wanna not just protect your money but also have massive, massive capital gains?
Just buy physical silver.
Can’t really lose unless you have to sell during a dip, pullback or correction, but if you can hold out for the medium-term, oh my the gains to be had!
I’ll repeat myself because it is important: I hope you have a good heart because if you have the foresight to stack silver ahead of what is coming, you will be a decision maker in the rebuilding whether you want to or not.
Platinum is about to start moving higher:
Maybe now we finally get my quick run to $920 I’ve been looking for but have been wrong about for some time?
I think we will get that run, especially if silver continues to move higher and gold makes another leg-up.
If gold & silver do not do those things, which I think is unlikely, then we may just get a delayed reaction.
Check out the plunge in the price of copper over the past several months:
The copper price reminds me of what it would be like to have silver at $14 right now.
In other words, I don’t think copper stays down for long, and I don’t think we head much lower from here, but rather, I think we’re finally carving out a bottom.
I’ve been wrong for so long about copper, however.
So we’ll just have to see.
Crude oil is about to start moving higher very soon:
We do have a first higher-low so we could finally be seeing the early signs of the trend-change.
I’m not looking for crude oil to rise due to technical reasons, however, for I think it has to do with the Deep State Globalists bringing on max pain to America in the form of economic misery and financial ruin, and that means pain at the pump where it is not only felt by all, but those who can least afford the pain.
Oh yeah, feel the burn, America, compliments of the Deep State Globalists!
(spoiler alert: you don’t have to feel the burn if you’ve converted your un-backed, debt-based fiat Federal Reserve notes into physical gold & physical silver)
The stock market continues to keep the bulls & the bears guessing:
It’s so cute seeing the bulls & the bears cat-fighting, isn’t it?
(spoiler alert number two: the stock market is coming down to effect maximum economic misery and financial ruin on America)
I’ve been looking for a spike in the VIX this week, but we’ve yet to see it:
If we do get some spikes in volatility, gold & silver silver could keep on moving higher.
Speaking of silver, and I apologize in advance for being all over the place today, I think $18.50 is where we consolidate for however long the consolidation takes, which means we likely overshoot to the upside first.
The yield on the 10-Year Note is falling as expected:
Silver still needs to price-in the plunge in yield, and yield just keeps on plunging!
(spoiler alert number three: that means silver has much more room to move to the upside based on yield alone)
The US dollar is still in its allowable range:
Dollar users will be in for one painful rude-awakening once the Deep State Globalists crash the dollar.
What’s the bottom line as we find ourselves here on this beautiful Wednesday in late August?
Silver is on the move, and it is clear the cartel is losing the ability to control the price.
We were in the $16.80s just last week, so let’s do a quick calculation here.
At $18.50, that’s a rise in price of over 10% in just one single week!
Would the cartel let that happen if they had control of silver?
Heck to the freakin’ no they wouldn’t let that happen!
Which means one thing and one thing only.
The cartel is indeed losing its control.
Again, the cartel is losing control.
Now is not the time to snipe.
Now’s the time to spray.
To spray and pray?
Pray if you like.
It’s the spray.
