    Cripes! JP Morgan, and Citi intentionally defraud to the tune of a $100 Billion and they get a slap on the wrist, and no one goes to jail.

    SLW misstates earnings (to the LOW side) and all the ambulance chasers descend like flies.

    It is times like these that the meek get gored - anybody here think the PM markets are NOT manipulated?

    Pretty much all Yahoo message boards have been overrun by bots and bashers, to disrupt honest communication of thoughts and ideas. This may be my first post in years here, but I wanted to validate a good thought provoking post.

    HL options

    Gotta say I've been tempted, but don't know enough about how to play options, to even put $1,000 in.

    Can you sell these before expiry?

    Ag showing some nice resiliency lately, and with likely continued lower energy prices, HL looks well positioned.

    I'm not about to say "The tide has turned", but like HL a lot more than the Biotech sector, which is looking quite toppy to me.

    Also, the China/Russian "Swift" alternative has left the barn, and I don't see THAT horse going back in.

    The USD is looking a bit tired right now, and doubt it will challenge 100 again.

    JM2CW, and Hi to K!


  • As many folks around here know, I've been staying away "in droves" of this pretty toxic forum (here's looking at you, SS, and your inscrutable, GLTU sign off).

    I, in all honesty, am still underwater on my HL holdings (65K shares), but am still up overall on my miners due to the performance of my 15K shares of SLW.

    That said, I still feel that HL offers a better upside than SLW, due to recent acquisitions and current higher quality veins that HL is mining.

    The current Silver price of ~ $18 is quite a bit better than $16 an ounce, and as fuel costs are a pretty big part of profitability, and possibly moving lower, HL looks to be quite well positioned, moving forward.

    Anyone who cares to look, can see ALL of my past posts.

    As the Algo's seem to like to "paint the tape", if HL clears $3.62, we may see a nice upside developing, here.
