What is the trend? Down. Who cares if it looks like a great buy opportunity? Who cares if it is oversold? It does not have to go higher from a certain level. Ask how many thought gold and silver could not go lower three years ago, two years ago, a year ago, a month ago?

While many feel that JPMorgan will continue to manipulate and cap the price of silver forever, the actual amount of money that the bank stands to make on sharply higher silver prices dictates otherwise. Of course, the bank is likely to depress the price of silver for as long as it can accumulate more actual silver and do so without too much outside notice of what these crooked market operators are really up to. The moment one or both of those conditions change, there is no reason for silver not to take off to the upside.
