The fact that the Feds are paying EXT4R to harass and scare investors indicates they don't want people investing in silver. They want you investing in the stock market and real estate. Also cheap silver allows the COMEX to hoard silver, they already have over $164 million and have been adding very quickly. Do not go against the COMEX, do what they are doing, buying. Of course not all of it is from purchases, there isn't enough silver being mined to fill their orders. Much of that silver is from transfers. Low silver prices also benefit the manufacturers who buy and use silver in products. Now you understand why they are manipulating silver prices lower.
Its all about stocks and bonds as with them they can steal from the public and with the real thing in your possession they have no way of pilfering it from you!
With low prices all they are doing is depleting what they have left in a hurry!
