CFTC Finds Evidence of Silver Market Manipulation
December 2010 by Scott HarnThis is welcome news. Many silver market commentators have stated publicly that the price of silver, currently hovering around $23.50 per ounce, should be much higher due to the scarcity of supply and the lack of faith in fiat currencies such as the US Dollar.
The combination of these two concerns—the drift toward socialism and the willingness to violate law—appear to me to be capable of raising the level of civil disorder to a point where such disorders could be positive influences on the price of gold and silver.
Gold’s greatest previous bull market took place in 1977-1980 amidst currency instability, and we cannot help but note the similarities between the present and that past era.
...rising inflation has been perhaps the greatest single positive influence during past golden bull markets, and the fires of inflation, particularly those driven by rising food prices, do appear to be glowing ever brighter.
…for a change, it is time to turn away from the Trump-Mueller frenzy and concentrate once again on some of the other sources of information which can present us with valuable information related to our precious metals.
Although there is no direct connection between the price of lumber and the precious metals, there is an important indirect one due to the importance of the housing market to overall economic activity.
