The War on Silver

It has taken more than 25 years for me to fully comprehend a conclusion that I never wanted to reach, namely, that there is an organized war against the price of silver that has come to include the US Government. I think the US Government involvement came into being almost accidently, but even if it was an accident of sorts, that does not diminish the serious nature of what must be described as illegal activity at the highest levels. I am conflicted between feelings of sadness and outrage. Starting around 1985, I became convinced that the price of silver was being manipulated by collusive and concentrated short selling by certain […]

Theodore Butler: A Few Questions about Manipulation, One Answer

Please read this article carefully because I’m disclosing for the first time that the U.S. government has given JPMorgan the green light to manipulate the silver market.This fact explains the shenanigans in the silver market. It answers all the questions and exposes this tawdry affair for all to see. The scandal recently became more outrageous. The June Bank Participation Report, as of Tuesday, June 5, along with the COT confirmed that JPMorgan’s silver short position has increased by at least 5,000 contracts in the past two reporting weeks. That is the equivalent of 25 million ounces of silver, truly an enormous amount in a two week period and about equal to […]

Theodore Butler: Illegalities

The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) has been negligent in failing to terminate the obvious manipulation ongoing in silver. Furthermore, the agency may be complicit in this manipulation. Worse, it has lied to the public and elected officials. This all goes back to the time when Bear Stearns was taken over by JPMorgan in March of 2008. It is well known that Bear Stearns went under as a result of a sudden loss of liquidity amidst a run by creditors and customers. What is not well known is that those problems were greatly exacerbated by a $2 billion margin call on silver and gold short positions from the end of December 2007 […]

Precious Metals Market Manipulation?

By Doug Casey, Casey Research For many years now, a meme has been floating around that the prices of gold and silver are being manipulated, which is to say suppressed, by various powers of darkness. This is not an unreasonable assertion. After all, the last thing the monetary powers-that-be want is to see is the price of gold skyrocketing. That would serve as an alarm bell, possibly panicking people all over the world, telling them to get out of the dollar. It’s assumed, by those who believe in the theory, that the US Treasury is behind the suppression scheme, in complicity with a half-dozen or so large bullion banks that […]

London Trader: Fed’s Global War Against Gold Escalating

With many global investors still rattled by the price action of gold and silver, today King World News interviewed the “London Trader” to get his take on these markets.  Here is what the source had to say:  “Gold was trashed on Monday, while the Fed minutes essentially said nothing.  When a central bank coordinates that kind of attack, it’s war, of course it’s war.  This type of action is coordinated by Bernanke and the Fed and executed by the bullion banks.  It’s actually laughable if anyone thinks that was a legitimate selloff, on what was, in reality, no news.” The London Trader continues: “No legitimate market participants were really selling.  Sure there […]

Update on Silver with a follow up from the CFTC

Update on Silver with a follow up from the CFTC

This is a continuation from a post I did on silver after the extraordinary price and volume that took place late in the Comex session this past Tuesday. That post can be found here. Silver’s 50 day simple moving average of volume is around 44,000 contracts a day. And in three minutes before the close of the Comex it traded nearly 3,000 contracts with a sharp move in price of nearly down 1%. Within minutes after the close it did what I would call a U-turn and proceeded to march back toward where it broke down from in the proceeding overnight session. This seemed rather odd to me at the […]

Do a search on manipulative scheme called “banging the close”. Then take a look at this 1 minute silver chart today in the last three minutes of trading.  Today is Tuesday which is the cutoff for the Commitments of Traders Report.  I was wondering when the cutoff was since Ed Steer mentioned it in his Gold and Silver Daily recently.  Is it at the close of the Comex, or the close of electronic trading?
