why Hebba Investments pump piece for certain silvers like AG is preposterous
I contend with absolute certainty that there is zero logic in the Hebba investments silly little pump piece for particular silvers like ag, exk, slv, and all the rest.
They argue that when a silver supply shortage develops, price must rise.
That is THE most idiotic thesis I've ever read about this gold and silver sector.
Reason: the major reason for purchases of gold and silver has been the assertion that they act as "flight to safety" investments during financial storms...currency turmoil....and international crises.
In fact, over the past year, silvers and golds have failed as "flight to safety" entirely making them all effectively worthless.
as such, when an item is viewed as "worthless," then a shortage in the item can NOT possibly raise the price to any degree.
you can not have a "shortage" in human excrement since it serves no purpose to anybody and nobody wants to buy it....analogously, you can NOT have a silver shortage when it has proven to be of no value and nobody wants it anymore.
Case closed, I am 100% correct, as usual, the silver pumpers are always wrong.
Thing is you have not and could have not felt the 'flight to safety" effect as US equity markets have rallied 15% YTD. Wait until inflation kicks in and Bernanke starts "Tapering". Then the effect will be re-tested and then you could re-post this post as an accurate assesment of the new PM status or "lack of". Keep in touch with yourself.
