David Smith Warns of the Crippling “Amateur Perspective,” Predicts Dramatic Rise in Silver

David Smith Warns of the Crippling “Amateur Perspective,” Predicts Dramatic Rise in Silver

Listen to the Podcast Audio: Click Here Mike Gleason: It is my privilege to be joined now by David Smith, senior analyst at The Morgan Report, and regular contributor to MoneyMetals.com. David, it’s always great to have you with us. How are you? David Smith: Very good, Mike. I enjoy coming back. Mike Gleason: Well, as we’re talking here on Thursday morning, we’re seeing the metals holding up quite well under the circumstances, and especially given the recent strong advance by the sector. Prices have pulled back some, and maybe we’re seeing a pausing of sorts here after the big run up that we saw immediately following the Brexit decision. […]

Countdown To The Debt Ceiling Deadline

Countdown To The Debt Ceiling Deadline

The Treasury Department declared a debt ceiling deadline of November 3rd. Outgoing House Speaker John Boehner will try to push through a debt increase before his scheduled departure on Friday (when he’ll likely hand over the gavel to Paul Ryan). If Congress can’t come to an agreement this week, markets could get rattled on the looming possibility of a U.S. default.

Outrageous Silver Speculation

Outrageous Silver Speculation

Two hundred or four hundred dollar silver! Outrageous! Yes, of course, when we think in terms of today’s dollars, euros, and yen. But what if current deflationary forces overwhelm markets and currencies, debts are defaulted, and central banks panic. Rather than accept crushing deflation, they massively “print” to boost asset prices and thereby create a huge inflation. Instead of dollars and euros, we soon have mini-dollars and mini-euros. Commodity and consumer prices are considerably higher and people and funds are DESPERATE to own something that will retain purchasing power. Gold and silver come to mind!

Silver, Safety, Manipulation

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? While the central bankers and politicians distract the populace with Donald Trump stories, they prolong the game … and the wealth transfers.

Silver and Warnings from Exponential Markets

Silver and Warnings from Exponential Markets

Silver prices are currently low compared to global debt, CEO bonuses, government spending, official US national debt, the S&P 500 Index, silver prices in 2011, money in circulation, gold prices, military spending, pension underfunding, and the prices of college tuition and health care. Silver prices will increase substantially in the next five years.

Ted Butler: Turning $1 Billion into $5 Billion

Ted Butler: Turning $1 Billion into $5 Billion

Today, I will attempt to make the case for how one might go about turning one billion dollars into five billion dollars by buying silver. At first, some of my specific points might seem to be at odds with my long held argument that fully paid for positions in the actual metal at current price levels are as close to a sure thing as it gets in the investment world. But it is still my conviction that owning unencumbered and unleveraged metal is the best way to go; what’s different about this article is that it is directed to any entity that can plunk down a cool billion dollars or more in buying silver.

Silver – More Evidence of a Price Bottom

Silver – More Evidence of a Price Bottom

Debt will be paid or liquidated. It can be paid with newly “printed” money, or it can be defaulted. I fully expect central banks to paper over defaults with more “printed” money. Either way, expect more QE, devalued fiat currencies, and higher prices for real money – silver and gold.

Silver Cycle Low – NOW

Silver Cycle Low – NOW

Silver is at or very near an intermediate bottom and an 82 month cycle low. Long term cycles indicate another high is due in about four years – plenty of time for silver to rally far higher.

Why Silver Coin Premiums Rise Amid A Falling Silver Price

Why Silver Coin Premiums Rise Amid A Falling Silver Price

Lower precious metals prices on Wall Street aren’t necessarily bringing lower prices on Main Street. The retail market for gold and silver coins, bars, and rounds has been swamped with high demand since mid June. Both the U.S. Mint and the Royal Canadian Mint continue to run into serious issues keeping up with retail silver coin demand.

Desolation Row: the Silver Market

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. A FEW possibilities are: 7 – 8 year cycles, extended valuations, excessive confidence, new wars, Chinese market crash, bond market reversal, interest rate increases, weak internals, Armstrong’s economic confidence cycles, and Shemitah cycles. Silver has been crushed and the S&P has been levitated. Both seem likely to turn soon.

150,000 Cigarettes or 3,275 Ounces of Silver

150,000 Cigarettes or 3,275 Ounces of Silver

A pack of Marlboros cost $0.19 many years ago. A typical price is now $6.50. Since we use unbacked debt based fiat currencies, inflation is here to stay, along with occasional panics, periodic crashes, and wealth transfers to the financial cartel. Exchanging a small expense every day for a purchase of silver will create a considerable stack of silver over 20 years. The expense is gone but the silver endures. We have choices as individuals and as nations. More silver and less fiat currency is, in my opinion, a good choice.

Silver Lows and Bubble Bonds

Silver Lows and Bubble Bonds

T bonds and the S&P look dangerous, while silver has been crushed during the past four years. Which of those three asset classes is likely to perform better between now and Election Day 2016? Which of those assets has no counter-party risk? Two of those assets currently trade at or near all-time highs, while one is, relatively speaking, quite inexpensive! Invest accordingly.

Hedge Funds Pile Into Silver, Price Is Going Lower

Hedge Funds Pile Into Silver, Price Is Going Lower

Over the last week traders are wondering why has the price of Silver started to fall so quickly. After all, technical breakout just occurred? The truth is dumb money, in the form of hedge funds, have piled into the precious metals sector… and especially in Silver. The chart below shows hedge fund contracts sitting close to 45,000 net longs. Are we in store for a classic shake out?

Rock-Paper-Silver

Rock-Paper-Silver

I expect that prices will rally far higher and substantially exceed $30 and probably $50 by 2016 or 2017. Of course I have no proof, but as the world falls deeper into Twilight Zone craziness, war escalates, debt inevitably increases, and political stability deteriorates, the investment demand for silver will rise as confidence in fiat currencies declines. Much higher silver prices are all but guaranteed within several years.
