    Love his answer on preference of silver should he have $15,00 to spend. Great answer... one of the best I've ever heard, up there next to Chris Duane

    Here Here.... Nobody says it with more authority than Ted... we're not worthy... we're not worthy! Though does hold back on the governments hand in this. But does lay into JPM. Enough for me.

    As long as the Fed is in control of precious metals, silver nor gold will ever find their true market values. Price is set on the COMEX. Fed controls COMEX. Even if all the bullion banks withdraw or are banned from trading silver or gold, the Fed will use the ESF or other entities such as its own secret trading desk. The arrest and charging a few traders at JPM may be news but has changed nothing. Manipulation continues. Just look at the recent smash down of gold and silver!

    Why so much energy is being spent on discussion on silver, it is a product costing $18/Oz?
    If you think it is a bargain then buy it and forget about it.
    You pay $60/head when you go out for a meal then no need to justify spending same amount on purchasing 3 Oz of silver.
    Silver is more suitable for objective of speculation (i.e your fiat when liquidate) but impractical as a long term saving vehicle, I think?

  • withoutexcuse2011
    withoutexcuse2011 Month ago +3

    I've been loudly voicing the simple message that AS LONG AS THE FAT RATS -- CRIMINALS LIKE JAMIE DIMON -- AS NOT TAKEN OUT THEN NOTHING IS GOING TO CHANGE - PERIOD! Sadly, Trump is doing *NOTHING* to take out the Fat Rats. In his 984 days as President, Trump has yet to take out a single Fat Rat - not ONE! Quite the contrary, it appears that Trump is protecting those criminals. Little fish get taken out but *NEVER* the whales. If that doesn't change soon - perhaps it's already too late - then we the people don't stand a snowball's chance in hell.

    Jpmorgan is the custodian of SLV... It's not that hard to figure out. They are stopping out contracts not vaulting the silver. It's highly unlikely Jpmorgan or the SLV have much physical silver at all just a bunch of ious.

      So many people are involved in the manipulation that the fines are thought of as a cost of doing business. Only if some big names are made to do time will the manipulation ever stand a chance of stopping and so far that isn't happening!

    • deerflyguy
      deerflyguy Month ago

      That won't happen either unless by doing so it's part of the manipulation process. Paper buyers never intend to cash out with physical. Even if they do call for delivery, the contracts are written to allow for payoff with fiat currency.

    Eliminate the impossible and whatever remains however improbable must be the truth - Sherlock Holmes. If the Justice Department, FBI, etc. etc. will not deal with the obvious and glaring wider manipulation of the PMs undertaken by JP Morgan and others, who else but the Government could be preventing them?

  • ThomasTamaOnDrums

    You have to get off the mindset that gold and silver are Commodities they are not they are money so bringing more on the market just increases wealth of the country or neighborhood it doesn't destroy it fiat currency value who cares

  • Christopher Johnson

    When I talk to people they c silver as expensive coper. I agree with Ted for me it has sooo much energy hidden inside it that it looks as gold. Gold is popular 4 thousands of years same with silver. If gold was a king silver would b a Prince. But gold is only an image. Silver is so important for the industry that will catch up with gold. My prediction is silver will join platinum and palladium but not b4 the end of manipulation and end of the current system. Silver 25 dollars this year and 250 next year.

    • deerflyguy
      deerflyguy Month ago

      @john doe Platinum dropped in price. So will palladium. Gold is the world standard by which all other PMs are measured. Silver should be valued greater than it is, but manipulation wins out above logic every time!

      Lee Davidson- Many of these deep state thugs will be dead by the time their utopian vision of their NWO manifests itself. They will end up in hell in the final analysis. The believer in Christ will go to be with the Lord no matter what happens in this evil world and that is a vision of hope and blessing. "And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them."

    Be very careful of what you wish for. I hold physical gold & silver as wealth preservation. However remember this: The higher the price of precious metals go, that reflects a decrease in purchasing power of the fiat paper. I'm American, and most Americans don't hold precious metals. Thus, a point will be reached when most Americans can't afford food. THAT is when all hell will break loose. And when that manifests, good luck getting to a metals dealer and back home alive . . .
