And where are they going to get it, given that the silver gurus say there is a shortage?
The manipulator are going to drive the price down so far that all the storage fleeing from "weak" hands will provide what is needed. Damned crooks! That's what happens when those who should be in jail never are prosecuted. And guess who supports all the criminal manipulation? Could it be commercial silver users? The trouble is that if they take the price down too far, not only will they vacate what is in private hands, they will also destroy incoming mine supply from mine closures. That should indicate price support, if silver users are intelligent enough to realize it.
So pay attention to mine closures of mines that produce enough silver, either as the rare silver mine, or those that produce it as a by-product along with other metals. That will make the silver users cry "uncle" to stop the downward price manipulation.
