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.

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 Pretty, Silver Ugly

Silver Pretty, Silver Ugly

But the day will come when silver prices can be constrained no longer, or the silver shorts cannot deliver their promised silver, or a major bank will force the silver market far higher. When that day comes, the silver market, like the national debt, will exponentially increase again.

This interview with Mr. Neumeyer, former founder of First Majestic Silver, covers the most important trends in the precious metals market.

The End Of Silver Price Manipulation – The Ultimate Confirmation

The End Of Silver Price Manipulation – The Ultimate Confirmation

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.

Ted Butler: Stepping Up to the Plate

Ted Butler: Stepping Up to the Plate

Following last Wednesday’s article suggesting that silver mining companies write to the CFTC (which I did make public at the urging of subscribers), one mining company (befitting of its name) became the first to do so. The CEO of First Majestic Silver Corp, Keith Neumeyer, became the first miner to write to the CFTC concerning the massive historic one-week repositioning of speculative positions on the COMEX that far exceeded anything occurring in the real world of silver production or consumption. While I hope additional mining companies take the matter up with the agency, Neumeyer not only did the right thing, he set a precedent that, to my knowledge, had not previously occurred in the 30 years that I have closely followed the silver market and, most likely, long before that.

How Silver Miners Should Help Solve Silver Price Manipulation

How Silver Miners Should Help Solve Silver Price Manipulation

It is only when you compare what just occurred in COMEX silver to other commodities does the extent of the manipulation come through. I’d use the words preposterous and absurd to describe the situation, but the COT report is factual and as real as rain. Instead, what is preposterous and absurd is for anyone to pretend that what is going on in silver is somehow normal. This is particularly true for silver investors and mining companies and their shareholders which are being held hostage to the most defective price discovery process in history.

Ted Butler: An Unavoidable Comparison With Silver Manipulation

Ted Butler: An Unavoidable Comparison With Silver Manipulation

A rare event occurred this past week; the CFTC charged a major food company, Kraft, Inc., with price manipulation in the wheat market. You can count on one or two hands the number of times the federal commodities regulator has charged anyone with price manipulation in its 40 year history.

Nobody Understands This Huge Scam In The Silver Market

Nobody Understands This Huge Scam In The Silver Market

The manic in/out movements in COMEX warehouse silver stocks, and the record high silver eagles and silver maple leaf sales in the face of punk retail sales, are the silver stories of the decade, if not this very young 21st century. Why is nobody else talking about this?! This whole thing screams of what some might call a fraud or a scam.

Ted Butler: The Perfect Crime In The Silver Market

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. The subscriber noted that I usually relied on hard core facts that could be documented and not on speculation. As it turns out, I believe there are sufficient number of hard facts behind my speculation, but I had failed to point them out. So let me present the facts, as I see them, that point to JPMorgan having amassed the largest physical […]

Ted Butler To Silver Miners: COMEX Is Responsible For Low Silver Prices

Ted Butler To Silver Miners: COMEX Is Responsible For Low Silver Prices

“The only thing a silver miner must be careful about in adopting an approach of openly petitioning the regulators to address the goings on in COMEX dealings is to stick to the facts and don’t say anything wrong. Unfortunately, there are an incredible amount of misstatements of fact regarding the COMEX’s role in setting silver prices that a miner repeating them will reduce any petition to a fool’s errand. I would assist any miner desiring to petition the regulators.”

Can The New Silver Fix End The Ongoing Silver Price Manipulation?

Can The New Silver Fix End The Ongoing Silver Price Manipulation?

With the new silver fix, the allegations of manipulation through the old process are inapplicable anymore. Does it mean that silver price manipulation has come to an end? Not really, according to precious metals expert Dimitri Speck. He explains to GoldSilverWorlds that the “new” fix has the potent to improve the transparancy on the long run, and avoid of conflicts of interest. However, the main manipulation is taking place in the gold and silver futures market. These manipulations appear at any time, just more frequently during the fixing, so that it remains visible in the stats.

How The Coming Silver Bubble Will Develop

How The Coming Silver Bubble Will Develop

Any bubble in silver must and will develop from physical investment buying. Surely, any industrial user inventory buying panic must involve immediate physical delivery and not a paper futures contract in a time of delivery delays and uncertainty. In fact, it is hard to imagine, as a silver bubble begins to develop, a greater urgency for holding only physical metal to intensify, due to a growing recognition that the COMEX manipulation was responsible for the former low price.
