Ted Butler: The Perfect Crime In The Silver Market

A couple of weeks ago, a long time subscriber correctly pointed out that I seemed to be speculating more than usual in my conclusion that JPMorgan was the big buyer of Silver Eagles and had accumulated as many as 300 million oz of silver, including Eagles and bullion.

So let me present the facts, as I see them, that point to JPMorgan having amassed the largest physical […]

Ronald Stoeferle: Gold Outlook For 2015

[Sticky post] What gold will do in 2015 is a question that is top of mind of gold investors, particularly during this period of the year.

It used to be said of gold by bankers [and still is], that it does not pay any interest. Well, with certain banks, that now holds true for “cash.” how does this relate to silver and gold? Neither have any counter-party risk. An ounce of gold or silver will always be the same ounce.
