Silver, Safety, Manipulation

Does anyone care that silver and gold have been real money and a store of value for 3,000 years, or that all unbacked paper money has eventually been inflated into worthlessness?

Warnings From Exponential Markets vs Gold

Warnings From Exponential Markets vs Gold

Markets go up and down. Debt however, based on over 100 years of central bank and politician foolishness, only goes up – until a great deflationary crash that may not happen. Expect debt to increase, politicians and central banks to spend and “print” and markets to boom and bust and follow exponential trends higher. When markets get overextended in either direction, they reverse, or regress to the mean. The 64 Trillion Dollar questions are which markets and when? Look at the graphs again and ask yourself if you truly expect higher S&P prices along with lower gold prices, OR THE REVERSE.

Gold: Investor Sentiment Remains Negative But Physical Demand Robust

Gold: Investor Sentiment Remains Negative But Physical Demand Robust

The surge in demand for bullion coins and bars will soon have a positive impact on prices. Even though it has been extraordinarily difficult for some investors to keep their conviction and hold on to real value while paper markets relentlessly discount it, I am entirely convinced that we are getting to the end of this current bear market.

Media Stocks Collapse, Gold Holds Its Own

Desolation Row:  the Silver Market

There are numerous reasons to expect that the US stock markets might follow the Chinese markets downward, particularly by the end of the year.

Silver has been crushed and the S&P has been levitated. Both seem likely to turn soon.
