Very Simple, You can't sell Silver at below the COST of Production, that is why there is suddenly now a 3 week wait for any delivery. The PRICE will have to go up, the supply will be exhausted. I think the fall of Metals was engineered by the Bankers, so they could buy at a low price. Watch and learn.
this is a fallacy. Believing in it will cost you a lot of money.
Besides, you are thinking about the avg cost of production. If I am a very low cost producer, why wouldn't I want my high cost competitors to go out of business? this is econ 101. Stop thinking like a tin foil hat nut job
