Silver Market Roller Coaster & QE∞

Today's Gold/Silver Ratio: 51/1 SAME

Issue 136

Gold: $1770.500/ Silver: $34.68

SGS Notes: Well, it's been another eventful week... if you had been watching silver prices this week, you would have seen the roller coaster we all experienced. I rarely write the SGS Newsletter main article(s), preferring to allow the 'experts' to speak since they can do it far better than I. However, I'd like to provide the following commentary to try to explain in simple terms what we saw happen this week, and some of the implications, taking information from the variety of sources I peruse daily.

Silver Market Roller Coaster & QE


Monday 10th -
Our week started out with silver spot at $33.69 as the market opened Sunday evening, and Monday was pretty uneventful closing at $33.51.... the calm before the storm.


"Everything going on these days behind the scenes is interconnected to the take down of the 'Bad Guys'. From the US elections to the European situation to the silver market volatility - it's all interconnected. It is all an orchestrated play that is coming to it's climax. OUR TIME is approaching fast and this go-round there is no stopping what is to come." Bix Weir 9/10

(See 'The Planned Silver End Game' at right)

Tuesday the 11th Monday was followed by a volatile day on Tuesday the 12th. Prices fluctuated all day in a $.40 range... and finally cloased the day at $33.62.

Tension is mounting as the world awaits the speech & anticipated announcement by Ben Bernanke on Thursday.

 

 

 

Wednesday, the 12th all is still fairly quiet when WHAM! around 10:30 a.m. EDT, we have an abrupt downturn of $1.
If there was any doubt in your mind about the silver market manipulation, this week's activity should lay it to rest.

Wednesday's smackdown by the manipulators is on record for all to see. How does a naturally occurring market make a instantaneous drop of almost $2.00, then rise $1 within the hour ???

So what was happening?

One of the favorite tools of the manipulators is to do a quick massive sell-off, which triggers the stop-losses of other investors and floods the market, thereby causing a sharp downturn in price. At the bottom of the downturn, they use the same money to buy up more positions before equilibrium returns. When you are dealing with millions of shares, $1 in price can make a big difference.

Remember we've been hearing how JP Morgan (primary culprit - there are others) holds a massive naked short position in silver derivatives.

Wednesday, I got this from Bix,

" Just a heads up about the Fed announcement tomorrow...

WATCH FOR A BACKFIRE!

I don't know what that backfire will be but in the Road to Roota Theory the Fed will have to be blamed for the global monetary meltdown. It may be the announcement of some form of QE3 as that would be something that is very visible.

Whatever comes from the announcement watch for the global meltdown to increase in speed over the weeks following."

Thursday, the 13th

Bernanke announces QE to infinity...

Bix's comments:

"No limits. No end date. This is QE to INFINITY!

Make no mistake...this is all on purpose. This is the END GAME and the blame for the global meltdown will be placed, rightfully, on the shoulders of the Federal Reserve.

Basically, the Fed has chosen to FALL ON IT'S OWN SWORD!

The Gold and Silver move upward has caught all the shorts off guard. The Bad Guys are in deep, deep trouble as they took their cues from the likes of Jeffrey Christian and Jon Nadler who were advising EVERYONE to short gold and silver. Now it gets exciting!"


Silver had a small drop right before the announcement, then a huge leap of $2.00 where it broke through the $34 ceiling almost reached $35 before dropping off a bit, and continued on almost flatlining throughout Friday.

What was the final outcome of the week? Check out this week's COT Report (at right).

"Clearly, the commercials were preparing for a massive raid on Thursday, until Bernanke dropped their pants by announcing QE." Watch for the upside in silver in coming weeks ahead.

Bix Weir is looking for a major CFTC announcement this month on the imposition of position limits, the beginning of the derivative implosion, followed by a silver 'moon shot' in October.

Silver Metal Now and a Golden Traveler's Check ~ Dr. Jeffrey Lewis
 
Today's Gold/Silver Ratio: 58/1 UP

Issue 133

Gold: $1584.20/ Silver: $27.37

SGS Notes: Lots of items of high interest in the ongoing LIBOR scandal...just the tip of the iceberg… see this week's major article on US Marshalls Expose Biggest Scandal in History for all the details…
Also, Bill Murphy of GATA in this week's video references connections between the JP Morgan/LIBOR scandal and silver… Keep your eyes open out there!

Silver Metal Now and a Golden Traveler's Check
Dr. Jeffrey Lewis

One of the main advantages of buying silver versus more costly precious metals like gold and platinum is that silver's relative cheapness allows you to buy more metal for the money.
Furthermore, inflation is a reality that eats away at the value of all paper currencies, while boosting the value of hard currencies like silver.

Given the likelihood of ongoing paper currency devaluation and debasement, despite short term perceptual fluctuations in the basket of floating currencies, the U.S. Dollar you are holding today is more valuable in terms of its purchasing power today than it will be tomorrow or a year from now.

Putting Things Into Perspective

If you are skeptical about holding silver or need a way to determine what time frame you should be holding silver for, you can consider the following question:
Given the at least 95% loss of purchasing power in the U.S. Dollar seen since 1913, with the vast majority of that loss of value occurring over the last 40 years, what would you rather be holding one year from now: An ounce of silver or the amount of U.S. Dollars that can currently purchase an ounce of silver?

Now ask the same question over a three, five and ten year time horizon. If your answer is consistently silver, then you really should be stocking up now that its price has retraced substantially from its recently made long-term highs.

This type of analysis allows you to put things into perspective and tolerate the short-term noise as the silver market fluctuates with less anxiety.

Why Choose Silver Over Gold?

Silver is currently preferable to gold for a variety of reasons. One of the most compelling is the price to supply ratio. The current supply of investment grade silver is 1 billion ounces versus 5 billion ounces for gold, while the ratio of metal in the ground is below 20 to 1.
Furthermore, both metals are well below their inflation-adjusted highs, especially when you calculate inflation based on an older, simpler methodology. In fact, silver is even more attractive than gold from this perspective.

Another factor is that silver is actually a more strategic and necessary commodity than ever. Its growing use in electronics, health applications and solar power production assure strong industrial demand for years to come.

Traveling With Silver's Bulk in Emergencies

Some investors who like to hold precious metals as an emergency get-out-of-town card are concerned about silver's extra bulk compared to gold when traveling. Basically, a given dollar amount of silver is much heavier and bulkier than the equivalent dollar amount of gold - so silver is just not as portable as gold.

Nevertheless, silver is not really that bulky relative to its value since a bowling ball made of pure silver would be worth well over $20,000 at $30 per ounce. What else can the average person readily accumulate and store in their house with the equivalent size and value?

Still, if you really need to 'get out of dodge' in a hurry or on foot, it would admittedly be a lot easier to carry only 15 ounces of gold - until you can switch back to silver of course!

Fortunately, investment grade silver and gold share enough properties to make them easily convertible into each other in emergencies. Silver is also easier to spend in small quantities to pay for the necessities of life while traveling.

A 'Lehman Moment' Will Ensure Gold and Silver Will Soar Again ~ Mineweb
If you are having difficulty reading this, click here to view online
Today's Gold/Silver Ratio: 57/1 UP

Issue 132

Gold: $1616.50/ Silver: $28.18

SGS Notes: Have had a little 'vacation' from newsletter lately, but events in the silver market and related economy/banking/financial worlds have been mushrooming… This week's newsletter is a 'catch-up' on things going on… what's happening in finance has a direct relationship in the precious metals marketplace… things are heating up on every side… and, with the CFTC gearing up to impose position limits, it won't be long until we see the coming breakout to the upside in precious metals.

A 'Lehman Moment' Will Ensure Gold and Silver Will Soar Again
Mineweb

Be sure that a huge volume of money printing will soon be on the way in Europe, and in the U.S. too, and the gold speculators' long awaited stimulus to drive prices up will at last become a reality.

Nowadays it seems that every time there is inaction, or minimal stimulative action, by the Fed that gold - and silver - take a dive. It appears to be long forgotten by the markets that gold performed extremely well throughout most of its bull run without overt Fed stimulus - but then gold investors on the fringe tend to be fickle animals increasingly overtly swayed by short term pronouncements with little cognizance taken of many of the underlying changes in the marketplace that have to be extremely bullish for precious metals. Not least of these factors include declining gold output in most of the world's major gold producing nations, hugely increasing Chinese demand - and perhaps most of all the fact that the global economy and banking system is teetering on the edge of a cliff with only a slight push needed to make it plunge to who knows where.
In his latest commentary on gold, Jeff Nichols - Managing Director of American Precious Metals Advisors and Senior Economic Adviser to Rosland Capital ponders on gold's performance vis-a-vis U.S. Fed pronouncements. "Gold shed more than $50 an ounce in a blink following last Wednesday's news from the Federal Reserve that America's central bank would not, at least not now, initiate another round of quantitative easing, opting instead for more muted monetary stimulus by extending its "Operation Twist" through year-end"

  As Nichols then notes, "the recent correction in gold and silver prices has some precious metals pundits already writing obituaries for these metals. Last week, gold in New York was off more than three percent, falling from a recent high near $1,627 to $1,570 - just about giving up all of this year's gains and, worse yet, down some 18 percent from its all-time high last September. Meanwhile, silver fell by more than six percent from $28.75 an ounce to $26.90 - and at week's end silver was off some 3.4 percent for the year to date and more than 45 percent from its April 2011 peak."

But, Nichols avers, "This backtracking in gold and silver does not signal a new bearish phase for precious metals prices. At worst, it calls for more patience from investors and savers holding these metals as they await the next major move up in a still very much intact bull market. More importantly, the current weakness in gold and silver prices simply gives smart investors and fearful savers more time to buy the protection and financial insurance offered by these metals."

 

Most long term holders of gold invest in the knowledge that over time gold has proved to be a great wealth protector. In bull markets, yes it can generate short term gains and it is the prospect of these that brings in the speculators and leads to the kind of volatility which is currently affecting the gold and silver markets. Even the out and out gold bulls who predict soaring prices do so not in the belief that gold will provide speculative gains per se, but that fiat currencies will collapse and that say a 50% increase in the gold price will be due, in effect, to a 50% corresponding fall in the purchasing power of their local currencies. Indeed the real gold bulls believe that the increase will be far greater than 50% as fiat currency purchasing power collapses totally.

So what really is the chance of this 'worst case' scenario taking place? Unpleasantly and worryingly near. A sovereign default in Europe would not be purely a local phenomenon but would have global repercussions. A Greek default for example - which ultimately looks to be inevitable - if it happens soon will likely bring down some major European banks with it. The knock-on effect across the global financial system will be far worse with governments finding it increasingly difficult to find the wherewithal to meet their guarantees to major bank investors - and Greece is only a tiny economy. If much larger economies like Spain, or Italy, were to default, the impact on the global banking system would be truly horrendous.

All the European Community is really doing with its Greek bailouts is buying time in the hope that the banks will be able to make arrangements in the meantime to mitigate the impact of the pending default.

And the American investor can't just sit back in the hope that a European meltdown won't affect the U.S. economy and its banking system. It will. The global banking system is completely interconnected and bank failures in Europe will trigger similar failures in the U.S. Like it or not the U.S. Fed will likely need to help out Europe by pumping money into the system to prevent the dominoes starting to fall - a possibly futile gesture in the long term. The next dose of real QE from the Fed may thus not be to prop up the U.S. economy, but the European one too - and could be the biggest injection of new money into the economy yet.

  Nichols puts it succinctly: "The timing of more monetary stimulus from the Fed - and the next major upward move in gold and silver prices - depends either on the economic news here in America (with bad news raising the chances of more quantitative easing sooner rather than later) or an impending financial disaster in Europe."

However he expects a round of QE in the U.S. regardless of the European situation - perhaps as soon as August given the continuing failure of the U.S. economy to show any real growth and unemployment remaining unacceptably high.

Nichols goes on "Despite yet another round of funding for Europe's sickest economies and banks - and regardless of whatever decisions are taken at the European summit this week - the Eurozone will continue to unravel. There's just no way that citizens of the peripheral economies will continue to accept austerity, collapsing economies, rising joblessness, and deteriorating living conditions for years to come."

"Sooner or later, I expect an impending if not actual default by one or another sovereign borrower or failure of one or another major European bank (what some are calling a "Lehman" moment recalling America's 2008 banking crisis) will trigger an unprecedented flood of new money from the Fed, the European Central Bank, and other central banks in Europe and Asia - assuring that gold and silver once again shine brightly."

This is perhaps an understatement. If this degree of monetary stimulation does come about the impact on gold and silver prices would be immense, and way beyond the power of governments, compliant central banks and their banking sector allies to maintain any degree of control of what is seen as the ultimate standard against which fiat currencies are measured.

Dismal Metals Sentiment - Just What Bernanke Ordered ~ Jeff Lewis

Today's Gold/Silver Ratio: 56/1 UP

Issue 131

Gold: $1570.00/ Silver: $28.17

SGS Notes: We're sending out our newsletter mid-week this issue because there is so much going on right now we want you to be aware of. The JP Morgan news is HUGE… so we are featuring various articles this week about that and the implications for all of us.

There are also things happening in the Eurozone and in Greece that will affect us all dramatically. Hold on to your seats, the ride is about to get bumpy. We're looking for the end of the metals manipulation when physical silver prices detach from the ETC prices… should be soon. We saw silver spot dip below $27 this week, and, looking at the Gold/Silver ratio… it's up quite high - again. Remember: that ratio SHOULD be in the 16/1 range. Still a long way to go.

Dismal Metals Sentiment - Just What Bernanke Ordered
Jeff Lewis

Since the dramatic drops the silver market saw in May and September of last year, prices in the precious metals market have been suffering from an excess of negative sentiment. This adverse perception is weighing on metal prices and keeping investor demand at bay.

Furthermore, although investors have continued to buy physical silver, the overall quantity being purchased has declined significantly, resulting in reduced support for the metal's price.
Nevertheless, the supply of silver is naturally limited by the quantity existing in the Earth's crust, despite ever growing industrial applications for the metal and rising price inflation. This key combination of factors still provides a strong fundamental basis for continuing to hold silver over the long term.

Could Weak Silver Sentiment be Conveniently Manufactured by Central Bankers?
Interestingly, this depressed silver market sentiment picture seems to be the perfect political tool needed during a U.S. election year to lend much needed psychological support to an ever weakening U.S. Dollar in terms of its ability to purchase goods and services.

Keeping silver and other precious metal prices low by depressing market sentiment, and perhaps even engaging in covert market intervention, seems suspiciously convenient after such an excessive amount of liquidity has already been pumped into the U.S. monetary system by the U.S. Federal Reserve Bank's highly controversial quantitative easing measures promoted by Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke.

In addition, given the high amount of liquidity the European Central Bank needed to inject to deal with the debt troubled Eurozone countries like Greece, Spain, Italy, Ireland and Portugal, the increasingly obvious end result will be higher consumer price inflation, despite ongoing denials by central bank and government officials.

More QE Measures Likely as U.S. Economy Languishes in Election Year
Bearish for the Dollar, but very bullish for hard precious metal currencies like silver, is the view among many market participants that further rounds of quantitative easing or QE measures by the Fed are still practically a given during this election year to help lend support to a stubbornly struggling U.S. economy.

Nevertheless, allowing metals to trade higher based on their strong fundamentals would severely dampen the U.S. central bankers' ability to overtly increase the money supply in a substantial way.
EU Moves Toward Ratifying ESM to Provide More Permanent Bailout Mechanism
Another related development is that the European Stability Mechanism or ESM is expected to be ratified by July of this year, provided that enough of the 17 Eurozone member states approve of the bailout system to represent ninety percent of its capital commitments.

This new EU rescue program is expected to permanently replace the existing temporary European Financial Stability Facility within the Eurozone, thereby making meta-government bailouts an ongoing feature of the Eurozone's economy.

As in the United States, a reasonable person can only expect more liquidity increasing measures will soon also follow in the EU, thereby making an even stronger case for continuing to hold and accumulate precious metals like silver.


Does Jamie Dimon's Problem Actually Reside in SILVER DERIVATIVES?

Facts are facts. Since May 7th the price of silver has been mercifully driven down below $30 and on May 10th Jamie Dimon announced a $2B derivative loss. The price of silver is continuing to be driven down which in my mind means only one thing...JPM is losing the physical silver game and having to drive the price lower to get their hands on physical at a price that would reduce their overall losses. Never mind that the paper silver short will increase...this is now a physical game.
A clue lies in the COMEX data that shows that silver is in backwardization!

The Banker's New Gold

Jeff Nielson
BullionBulls, Canada

In a fresh sign of bankster desperation, we recently learned that they have pushed lease rates for gold to the lowest, negative level in history - i.e. they are paying people more money to "borrow" their gold than at any other time. We know this is a sign of desperation, because back in the real world, buyers are paying premiums near record-highs to buy their (real) gold.
There are numerous implications regarding this latest bankster tactic to suppress the gold market, but before getting into those let's explore all of the reasons why bankers like "leasing gold" in the first place. The starting point is to note that it is with gold-leasing that we see the beginnings of the banksters' 100:1 leverage in the gold market.

A banker is holding a quantity of gold in his vault. He "lends" the gold to a trader, and suddenly you havetwo parties both pretending to be the "owners" of that gold. Naturally, the banksters also like the fact that this is a totally opaque, unregulated/unreported transaction. The banksters can secretly lend out their gold, and since the transactions are never reported, we lack the absolute proof that none of this "loaned gold" is ever repaid.

There is certainly plenty of circumstantial evidence on which to base such a conclusion, however. In order to review this evidence, we first need to know what is being done with the bankers' leased gold. A detailed analysis by veteran precious metals commentator Frank Veneroso explains how and why "The ultimate borrowers in the gold lending operation are these shorts in the gold futures and forward market."

We immediately see a second reason the bankers love gold-leasing: all of the "leased" gold ends up being shorted onto the market. What this directly implies then is that in order for these gold leases to ever be repaid the short positions must be closed out so that the gold (supposedly) backing the trade can be repatriated to the bank. However, what we see in the gold market is a huge, permanent short position in the gold market - which has swelled enormously since Veneroso wrote the article above nearly a decade ago.
We now know that at least some of these gold leases have never been repaid, since the gold that was loaned out remains on the market. However, as a matter of simple arithmetic we can deduce that few if any of these leases are ever repaid. As I noted above, each gold lease creates "paper gold" (i.e. a "fractional reserve" gold market) and increases the bankers' leverage in the gold market.

Gold, Silver vs. 'Worthless' U.S. Treasuries ~ Jeff Nielson
If you are having difficulty reading this, click here to view online
Today's Gold/Silver Ratio: 54/1 UP from 44/1

Issue 125

Gold: $1650.00/ Silver: $30.33

SGS Notes: We're featuring a lot of material this week from Jeff Nielson, from BullionBulls, Canada... be sure to listen to the 3 Videos (which are really audio interviews)... We've had a lot of his articles in our Newsletter in the past... you can find them by searching his name on our Newsletter page on the SGS site.

In the past couple of weeks we have seen yet another bankster takedown of the precious metals prices... it is clear they are covering their short positions... see the link to the COT reports... and being allowed to do so by the very institutions that are to set position limits so that they cannot do this to the market. Wise investors should understand that this is an opportunity to BUY, because this activity will only create shortages in the marketplace which will drive prices to the moon...

Gold, Silver vs. 'Worthless' U.S. Treasuries

Jeff Nielson, BullionBulls, Canada

Two weeks ago, I wrote that volatility was "the new bankster weapon" in the gold and silver markets. In writing that this marked a "new phase" for these markets, I admit to never imagining that we would immediately see the bankers display this new phase with such a vivid "exclamation mark."

That said, it is now equally important to emphasize to investors that nothing at all has changed for gold and silver from a long-term perspective. What makes this current episode of market manipulation all the more surprising is that there wasn't even any serious attempt by the mainstream media to manufacture a "reason" for the plunge in gold and silver -- as "cover" for the banksters' actions.

With "competitive devaluation" still the mantra for the economically/intellectually bankrupt governments of the West, and with most of the rest of the world also being forced to play this game, we know that the banksters' fiat currencies will continue losing value at an increasing rate. Note the use of the word "competitive." It directly implies that these governments are driving down the value of their currencies as fast as they can.

Obviously, saying a currency is losing its value is exactly the same thing as saying that prices are going higher. As a matter of the simplest arithmetic, and the simplest logic, if most of the governments of the world are trying to push up prices (as fast as they can) then the prices for gold and silver can also only go higher over time.

Of course, some things are "different" in the gold and silver markets -- in comparison to where we were when this bull market started over 10 years ago.

Back then, the banksters had lots and lots of bullion to dump onto the market to depress prices. Now they don't. Back then, the governments of the world were not deliberately trying to drive up prices. Now they are. Back then, our governments were not obviously insolvent, and gold and silver were not viewed as "safe havens." Now they are.

In short, 10 years ago there were lots of reasons to worry about the "strength" and "stamina" of the gold and silver markets (as "long" investments). What happened at that time? The price of gold nearly quadrupled from under $300/oz to over $1000/oz. The price of silver more than quintupled, from under $4/oz to nearly $20/oz.

Gold & Silver Are The Currencies of the Free

Dominic Frisby
Goldcore
 

The President of the World Bank, Robert Zoellick, called for a new post Bretton-Woods currency system involving gold, in November 2010. Zoellick said that gold was worthy of consideration as a reference point for modern currencies and as an indicator to help set foreign exchange rates.

At the end of January, the Cheviot Sound Money Conference held an excellent conference in London which examined the practical application of gold and silver as money within a modern context.

The context to these proposals is crucial as without an understanding of the modern financial and monetary system one cannot possibly comprehend the continuing importance of gold and silver.

We live in an era of surging trillion dollar deficits and surging national debts in the US and internationally.

The US recorded its biggest monthly deficit in history two days ago with a $223 billion deficit for February alone, the 29th straight month of deficits – a modern record. The US budget deficit in 2010 was over $1.45 trillion and is forecast to be of a similar magnitude in 2011. At the close of business on Feb. 28, the total federal debt stood at $14.195 trillion ($14,194,764,339,462.64).

We live in an era of massive creation of government bonds.

Foreign central banks hold $5 trillion in US Treasury bonds and agency debt alone. Chinese foreign exchange reserves alone are soon to reach the $3 trillion level.

We live in an era of of thousands of trillions of dollars, euros, pounds etc. of derivatives.

The enormous OTC sector of derivatives alone is worth nearly $600 trillion on paper, roughly 10 times world economic output.


We live in an era seeing the creation of and speculation with trillions of dollars (euro, pound etc.) of electronic currency.

According to the Bank for International Settlements, as of April 2010, average daily turnover in global foreign exchange markets was estimated at $3.98 trillion, a growth of approximately 20% over the $3.21 trillion daily volume as of April 2007 - soon after the financial crisis began. Some firms specialising in foreign exchange have put the average daily turnover in excess of US$4 trillion.

We are experiencing a scale of global currency debasement, the likes of which the world has never seen before.

We live in an era where thousands of millions of people live on less than a dollar or two a day in the "developing world". While millions of people in the "developed world" are now debt slaves - both individually and as citizens of increasingly bankrupt nation states.

Reformation or replacement of our debt-based fiat paper and electronic financial and monetary system is one of the most important debates of our times.

The modern monetary system of paper and electronic money is inherently unstable and unsustainable and there is a strong case for considering using gold and silver as money once again.

At the Cheviot conference, Money Week's Dominic Frisby gave an excellent talk in which he outlined why gold is the currency of the free.

Frisby eloquently outlined how the modern system of finance, banking and credit (or debt) impoverishes and enslaves. It has "made wars that should never have happened possible; its brought about a relentless needless commercial expansion and malinvestment that has raped the earth."

He points out how the world is cursed by monetary illiteracy and it is amazing how few people understand the modern monetary system, and how it is to blame for the huge inequalities in wealth we see in the world today.

"Money must be sound and true, at the moment it is neither and society is corrupted as a consequence."

There were a number of other excellent talks all of which are worth viewing. The highlights include Chris Powell, the Secretary/Treasurer of GATA (Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee), lecture 'Gold price suppression purposes and proofs':
http://www.cheviot.co.uk/sound-money-conference/presentations/gold-price-suppression-purposes-and-proofs

There is then an excellent panel discussion and question and answer session on gold at the end which involved Max Keiser, James Turk, David Morgan, Ben Davies, Richard Cragg, Sandeep Jaitly. It is surprisingly entertaining and very informative:

GoldNomics - Cash or Gold Bullion?

Our educational video, 'Goldnomics - Cash or Gold Bullion?' complements the excellent interviews from the conference. It clearly shows how gold has retained value throughout history.

'GoldNomics' can be viewed by clicking on the image above or on our YouTube channel: www.youtube.com/goldcorelimited

The US dollar has been the strongest fiat currency in the world in the last 100 years and indeed it became the reserve currency of the world during the period (due to victories in the two World Wars and the accumulation of the largest gold reserves in the world).

Despite that the dollar has lost 97% of its value in 97 years. The massive loss of purchasing power of the preeminent currency of our age, the US dollar, clearly shows gold's importance as a currency, as money and as a store of value.

Individuals, families and societies can never be free as long as money is based on debt and compounded interest and as long as the money we use day to day is constantly depreciating and being debased.

Central Banks Unanimously Prefer Gold Over Paper ~ Jeff Nielson
Issue 92
Today's Gold/Silver Ratio: 39/1 Dn

Issue 117

Gold: $1600.60/ Silver: $40.16

SGS Notes: This week's news has centered around the debt ceiling, the budget 'crisis', and the impending economic crises for Europe, Italy, Greece (again)... all of these things are having an impact on gold and silver prices.

Central Banks Unanimously Prefer Gold Over Paper

Jeff Nielson

After the Western banking cabal engineered the "crash" of the global gold market in 1980, Western central banks spent more than a quarter-century perpetrating the lie that gold was a "barbarous relic" - which was supposedly "inferior" to the worthless, un-backed paper they were cranking out (in record amounts) on their privately-owned printing presses.

Their incentive was obvious. In getting the entire world to believe that lie, they were able to enrich themselves by $10's of trillions of dollars. This was done by creating those $10's of trillions ("out of thin air"), pretending that this paper actually represented real wealth - and then getting people all over the world to give them $trillions more paying interest on worthless paper which never represented any real wealth in the first place.

While it was the largest fraud (and theft) in the history of the world (by a factor of more than 1,000), it was by no means an original act of fraud - being nothing more than the same scam which all bankers always perpetrate, whenever they are (foolishly) granted the privilege of inventing "money" out of thin air, going back a thousand years.

During the first twenty-five years of this institutionalized fraud/theft, the bankers supported their fraud by dumping their vast hoards of gold onto the market (in the largest quantities in history). "Look," they would say, pointing with their evil talons, "Even we bankers, the greediest creatures ever hatched on this planet, have no use for this archaic, yellow metal - so why would any of you want to own it?"

It was a very successful strategy

The price of gold was pushed to an all-time low (in real dollars), so low that more than 90% of the world's gold mines were forced to close since they couldn't manage to break-even at those fraud-induced prices. And individual holdings of gold (especially in the West) fell to their lowest level in history.

Obviously, with that privilege to print money not having been revoked yet (a literal "license to steal"), their incentive to continue this fraud/theft is as strong as ever. However, over the past five years a "funny" thing has occurred. First these central banks rapidly slowed their dumping of gold, then they stopped it altogether, and now they are the single-largest bloc of gold-buyers on the planet.

Recent statistics released by the World Gold Council allow us to go even further. Over the past two years, the world's central banks have demonstrated a 100% unanimous preference for gold over their own banker-paper (i.e. all those un-backed "fiat currencies"). During that span of time, only three nations have been modest "net sellers" of gold - and in all three cases this related to "long term sales agreements" (i.e. old obligations). During the past two years, not one single central bank on the face of the Earth has chosen to be a net-seller of gold over that time.

I drive a Toyota

Let me construct an analogy here. A person goes shopping for a car. He goes to a Ford dealership, and after getting the full "sales pitch" on what wonderful vehicles all Ford products are, the shopper asks the salesman "what kind of car do you drive?" And the salesman answers "I drive a Toyota."

The car-shopper then goes to a GM dealership, a Chrysler dealership, a Volkswagen dealership, and every other auto-dealership he can find. At each dealership, the salesman tells the shopper what "wonderful vehicles" they make, but when the shopper asks each one what car they drive themselves, every one replies "Toyota". The obvious question to ask is that armed with such data, is there a single (rational) auto-buyer who would buy anything other than a Toyota?

The equally obvious answer is that "no", no rational buyer would ever choose any vehicle other than a Toyota - unless he/she simply couldn't afford the purchase price.

The most charitable statement we can make about the world's central bankers is that they are the world's "sellers of money". Indeed, since I have already pointed out that what they are selling is worthless, we could obviously come up with a long list of terms less-neutral than "sellers". Unquestionably, with armies of statisticians and data-gatherers at their disposal, they are the world's foremost experts on "money" (assuming we generously include their fiat currencies with that label).

Much like a hypothetical world where all the sellers of automobiles (who know these cars the best) all buy a single brand of automobile themselves, all of the world's foremost experts on "money" are showing a 100% preference for one kind of money: gold. The message from the world's central bankers is absolutely unequivocal: only chumps would choose to hold paper over gold.

Clearly, the massive paper-fraud of these banksters is in its final stages of decay: a Ponzi-scheme of unimaginable proportions, where people willingly funneled $trillions of their own wealth into the clutches of Western bankers - only to ultimately end up with zero (or near-zero, or less-than-zero). We know this, because the scammers themselves are now publicly fleeing from their own scam.

Ironically, the same, semi-comatose mainstream media which still alerts us when "insiders" in our equity markets are "dumping" their shares, has been 100% oblivious to the "insiders" in our monetary markets dumping their banker-paper (in favor of gold). The parallel cannot be missed: when corporate insiders are unanimously dumping their shares, only the "Mother of All Fools" would be a buyer in equity markets. When all of the world's monetary "insiders" are dumping their banker-paper in favor of gold, only an equivalent "fool" would attempt to swim against that tide.

To avoid getting "lynched" by all of the silver-bulls who follow my work, let me take a moment to include silver in this analysis. To begin with, if anything the bankers have even more fear/hatred of silver than gold. However, their hatred/aversion to silver is so extreme that rather than merely lie about silver (so people would not want to hold it), and then hoarding as much as possible themselves, they decided on the "nuclear option": destroying the world's stockpiles of silver. The only reason why the world's central banks have shown no interest in silver is because inventories have been decimated to such an extreme (more than 90% lower than 15 years ago) that (relative to gold) there is no silver for the central banks to start hoarding.

At the household level, the world's silver shortage is not yet that extreme. We can still buy what we want/need as individuals - and at "sale" prices, thanks to the recent ambush of the silver market by the CME Group. Of particular relevance, for those small investors who are finding the price of gold moving out of their "reach", silver remains accessible - and a fantastic bargain.

Short of B.S. Bernanke starting to walk around with a neon sign hanging around his neck saying "buy gold", it is impossible for ordinary investors to get any clearer warning that "cash is trash" and bullion is "golden". Ignore such a warning at your own peril.

Bullion Blows Up Banksters ~ Jeff Nielsen
June 26 , 2011
Issue 92
Today's Gold/Silver Ratio: 43/1 Up

Issue 113

Gold: $1503.30/ Silver: $34.43

Bullion Blows Up Banksters

Jeff Nielsen

When precious metals commentators (including myself) talk about the pathological fear/hatred which bankers exhibit toward gold and silver, we typically focus on their aversion to higher bullion prices – as being the “canary in the coal mine” which warns us that banker money-printing has spun out of control.

There is, however, an even more fundamental antagonism which the paper-pushing “elites” feel toward precious metals: the simple act of holding bullion is effectively an involuntary “de-leveraging” of the endless $trillions in bankster Ponzi-schemes which have totally contaminated nearly all Western economies.

Readers should not confuse my title with the popular “take down JP Morgan” campaign spearheaded by a few so-called “silver vigilantes”. When I talk about bankers being “blown up” by bullion, this is an entirely passive process. First of all, our purchasing of bullion (as has been often explained) is a defensive move to “insure” our dwindling wealth against the currency-dilution inflicted upon us by the excessive money-printing of the bankers. Secondly, the “harm” caused to the bankers by bullion is indirect, and entirely a function of their own excessive behavior.

Let me quickly cover the first premise by once again reviewing the monetary abomination known as “fractional reserve banking”. In the typical, modern “fractional reserve system”, each time we deposit a (paper) dollar with a bank (or invest it), our eternally greedy bankers are allowed to effectively print-up ten more dollars, loan them out into the economy (or “invest” them) – and thus that $1 dollar suddenly becomes $11, with the other $10 dollars being a windfall created (literally) out of thin air, which has neither been “earned”, nor does it have anything at all “backing” its value.

This ten-to-one dilution of our currency – which is nothing less than (legal) systemic fraud – is precisely how the Federal Reserve has been able to reduce the value of the U.S. dollar by roughly 98% (over its 98-year existence). But even stealing at this rapacious rate was not enough to sate the greed of the 21st century Wall Street bankster.

They directed their spineless servants in Washington to change a vast number of rules (and eliminate even more “safeguards”) allowing these banksters to increase that (already obscene) 10:1 leverage to an utterly insane level of greater than 30:1 – which turned the entire U.S. financial system (and most of its debt and equity markets) into a collection of hopelessly unstable Ponzi-schemes. This leverage-insanity has culminated in the creation of the banksters’ private casino: the $1.5 quadrillion derivatives market – by itself more than twenty times bigger than the entire global economy.

Thus when a small minority of individuals engage in the “defensive” strategy of buying bullion, we are protecting ourselves in two ways. First of all, we are isolating our waning wealth in a form which the banksters cannot dilute/debauch with their money-printing. Secondly, we are accumulating this insurance against the inevitable financial collapse when the bankster Ponzi-schemes finally implode. There is, however, an indirect “virtuous circle” which is set in motion by the simple act of buying bullion, which (to the best of my knowledge) is not being discussed by other commentators – either in the mainstream media, or within this sector itself.

Let us back-up to the basic premise upon which fractional-reserve banking exists: we invest or deposit a dollar with a banker, and then they are legally allowed to dilute that dollar by anywhere from a factor of 10:1 or 30:1. However, each and every time that we take one of our dollars and invest it into precious metals, we are breaking that cycle of dilution (and currency-destruction).

As this purchasing of bullion increases, we thus began to weaken the cycle of serial currency-dilution, and effectively de-leverage our own financial systems. Note that this “involuntary de-leveraging” of Wall Street (in particular) has been made 100% necessary due to the complete failure of servile politicians and corrupt regulators to rein-in the 30:1 insanity of Wall Street. Indeed, after only a brief drop-off (when there were no “chumps” available to take their bets), all reports indicate that the Wall Street vampires are just as leveraged today as they were before they almost destroyed the global financial system the first time – except that this insane leverage is now concentrated in even fewer hands.

This means that as individuals accumulate bullion to personally insure and insulate their wealth from the fractional-reserve piracy of modern banking, that collectively our actions are insuring and insulating our entire economies against the inevitable economic carnage as the paper-bubbles collapse – including all of the worthless, fiat currencies themselves.

In fact, I only began to consciously explore this line of reasoning myself when I was admiring the brilliance of Hugo Salinas Price’s movement to re-institute silver money as a “parallel currency” in Mexico. Critics of this scheme have argued that most of the silver money being created would quickly disappear: people would spend their paper money, and hang onto their (higher quality) silver money.

My rebuttal to that has been that this is the beauty of Salinas Price’s proposal. Effectively, instead of Mexicans having paper “savings accounts”, where they give their pesos to bankers – and then suffer the economic rape of currency-dilution – Mexicans would have “silver savings accounts”, 100% immune to the monetary depravity of bankers. I then added to that by pointing out the cumulative effect of this: permanently reducing the percentage of our wealth which is under the control of bankers, and (simultaneously) permanently reducing our vulnerability (i.e. leverage) when these paper-pirates (yet again) destroy themselves (and our system) with their insatiable greed and reckless gambling.

The mainstream media have been programmed with their own rebuttal. They call such behavior “hoarding”. This is nothing less than a perversion of semantics. In fact, for more than 4,000 years most of humanity has held their “savings” in the form of gold or silver, and billions of people do so today, primarily in Asian economies.

What has been “savings” for 4,000 years does not become “hoarding” simply because the mainstream media chooses to be an accomplice of the banksters in helping them steal our money through their fractional-reserve Ponzi-schemes.

This supplies ordinary citizens with yet one more motivation to insure a large percentage of their wealth by converting it to (“physical”) gold or silver. Not only are we protecting ourselves individually, but collectively we are engaging in the “bank reform” which our cowardly and corrupt political leaders have failed to do.

This means that each and every time you hear some media talking-head parrot the words “hoarding silver”, you can immediately translate that to mean “insuring our financial system”. The fact that it will ultimately help to “blow up the banksters” (as a consequence of their own greed) is merely a fringe benefit.

The Final Fight ~ Silver Shield
May 7 , 2011
Issue 92
Today's Gold/Silver Ratio: 42/1 Up

Issue 107

Gold: $1500.70/ Silver: $35.85

SGS Notes: :Yes, silver took it on the chin this week. What we have seen in the dramatic price drop for silver and gold has been a carefully orchestrated manipulation of prices by some powerful folks in high places… If you have been following the SGS newsletter for very long, you would know that we've been reporting on this faithfully from the beginning. It's been going on for several years now… and with all the exposé going on by some honest and persistent men in the industry, the fire is heating up under this issue. So this week I am devoting the newsletter to the various commentaries from these people who have reported the truth about what's happening. There's a lot to 'feast on' this week.

This is NOT a normal 'market correction' as some would have us think…Remember that investing in physical silver and gold is not the same as paper … yet the dynamics in paper have a dramatic effect on physical. (Also noteworthy this week… huge difference in Gold:Silver ratio… last week was 32:1

Bear in mind, that all of manipulation forcing prices downward have long-term effects on this market beyond the prices… it creates a disincentive for mines to produce and refine silver… a disincentive for research & development on new sources for silver. Consequently, there is a very real shortage of phyical metals in the market…

And, again, the warning is issue repeatedly: Hold on for the Long Haul. This is NOT the time to SELL… it is the time to ACQUIRE.

Silver Shield: The Final Fight

This is the final fight of physical and paper silver, so hold the line and get ready to take it to the enemy. The Elite have literally thrown everything they have at the silver markets to try to make silver investors weak in the knees and cry uncle. Like a bully trying to take your lunch money by twisting your arm.

This can only end one of two ways; you give up and the banksters laugh or you stand up and say enough! These tactics may work on some paper traders who are literally forced by margin calls. For those who have listened to me, and bought only physical, this recent manipulation is only a subsidized discount to buy more, for less.

The CME has raised the margin requirements an unprecedented 5 times in less than 2 weeks to force higher and higher costs on paper traders to force them to sell. The higher the costs and the lower the price of the underlying asset is a toxic combination in the paper market.

I saw this happen in the 2008 rout, where they took it down 60% in a matter of months. It was the worst time to be a silver holder, but I knew the real story and held on when everything in the world said get out. I held on and even added to my position to then see a return of close to 500% in the next 2 years.

Collusion by Fed Officials and Commodity Exchange Heads Has Its Intended Effect
Trader Dan


I find it amazing how effectively these people can coordinate their policies with the heads of the commodity exchanges and their pals at the big banks who are perennial shorts in the markets and have now managed to pluck the money out of hundreds of thousands of commodity trading accounts enriching the big banks (government sponsored hedge funds) in the process. Nothing like a freely operating financial system where the playing field is completely level and no one has an advantage over the next guy!

By their continued hiking of silver margins, the exchange effectively removed the liquidity in the silver market that the smaller specs have been providing. That left the market vulnerable to severe drops in price as these specs exited due to financial constraints which then removed a source of potential bids under the market as the CFTC commitments report has shown the small specs to be good buyers in the silver market. Even the bigger hedge funds are impacted by such a sharp hike in margins as their losses in silver then precipitate even more losses across other assorted commodity markets due to the cascading effect of mounting paper losses and margin calls and the need to raise cash.


As the silver market tanked the exchange officials could then warn about Clearinghouse integrity and have more reasons to drive margins even higher as they point to the increased volatility, volatility which I might add, they created themselves by hiking margins to such an extreme degree.
