  • Must have been written by Good old Harvey...

  • AMAZING ... Right now sitting at 72.5 to 1.... Yet it comes out of the ground at 8 to 1 and silver eagle sales compared to gold eagles being sold a whopping 84 to 1... I wonder what the ratio is for industrial need per oz with silver and gold ? I bet its even higher still...

    Silver is still the red headed step child... I wonder when all this will change and silver finds his real father ? LOL

    The fed meets Oct 28-29..

    Hell the fed already bought more.. This is a JOKE... Look at how much Debt was added this month alone...

    They know they can't stop... All those bonds when they come due need to be either paid for or roles over... And since nobody is there to buy them the Fed is forced to do so OR the economy TANKS because of all the BK And then Job lose... So they have no other options other then to print more money and dilute the value of the dollar but in turn continue to keep many people working...

    When this system goes through a real hit , only then will silver and gold go through the roof... That or if miners go bust and we see a true shortage and all inventories are used up. The way China and India are adding to their solar power systems I am surprised there is much silver left to go around...

    I hope you are right but I also hope you aren't right and china rocket is... LOL Oh I am solo Confused... LMAO... I am in a win win situation right now... I have enough for protection so if it were to go to 30 then thats way over my avg but still want to buy much more... If it does happen to tank like Chinarocket says then GREAT because I will have made a fortune on the long term option play I have going and will take the winnings and buy all silver with it... Im in no rush so time is on my side when it comes to when silver takes off... Personally I hope I see it happen in my lifetime but if it doesn't then thats fine as well... Its all for the kids anyways ... After all once you get into the older age stage of life thats who you live for anyways... At least I do... I wish I had a moment to come visit you Skarry and help mine... I think that would be cool as hell to do... Its on my bucket list...

  • That silver is a hated metal by someone very powerful.... They are doing whatever they can to take down silver prices... Lets look at what we know.

    Silver sales have been strong and even record breaking sometime over the last three to four years.
    Recycling is way down.
    Miners complaining about costs and also mining down compared to what they said would be mined.
    One miner now holding back on sale of some silver.
    Industrial demand is still Strong.
    More dirt having to be moved just to achieve same or less amount of silver.
    Ore grades going down.

    So in the face of all this and more , Silver continues to get pushed lower...
    How is that possible without the paper game ?
    But those who are holding the paper must have at their disposal a stock pile of real silver...

    So my question is just how much do they have ? And how long at this pace can they keep it up ?

    I doubt they who are in control will ever release this information... The only way we will know is to continue keeping up the pace of purchase and wait for the day we hear a LOAD SNAP....

    Yes were is he ? How come he isn't trying to say well I guess China isn't taking hold of the contracts they have ? Perhaps they just lent them out again ? Shameful... He has only 2 months now for silver to rise to 100. LMAO.. Whats that going to be over 1 dollar a day now.. LOL... Perhaps he is bubblehead...

    China, You know I am a Silver Bull .. But like I said . There is no arguing with the facts. The facts are silver is 17 dollars per ounce and getting pushed lower. Doesn't seem to me as if there is a short supply. Even if the numbers are coming in lower for the miners and even when recycling will be down year after year. And even if some miners start holding back sales of their silver.. Still stock piles are coming from somewhere to fill in the gaps.

    So Since I have NO IDEA just how much stock pile is out there . I would say you will be right as to were the price will go.. However I doubt it will last that long as you have said it will.... But that is a discussion for a different time...

    Yup... All they are doing will only cause a spike one day down the road... Just like our Debt bubble when it explodes... Both will happen and most likely at the same time...

    P.S... I tell you this . We are seeing RECORD Sales with the stackers we have now... If that doesn't scare them then what I say next REALLY SHOULD.... Stackers don't even represent .01 percent of the worlds population... MY GOD MAN THE POTENTIAL GROWTH ALL BY ITSELF SHOULD SCARE THE LIVING #$%$ OUT OF THEM...

    OK , I hear you but what I am seeing right now is this... Every time this month Apmex shows sales of Silver monster box eagles go lower and then three to four days later they add to their in stock position... In fact , Just yesterday they had 81 box's left and today they now have 100 ... So this is the forth time I noticed this... They either are trying hard to make it look like they have ton of silver or they do somewhere ? I know that this was not the case a few years back... Perhaps the last time they got caught off guard ? Now it seems the mint is filling up all sales. I don't watch all items but I don't see to many things saying out of stock either... Looks to me like we are going to get another record breaking year again also... So Something sure doesn't add up .... Usually when something is in such high demand the price rises... Unless of coarse there is ample enough supply ... Just how long that supply can last is a guess ... Using up close to a Billion Oz in any given year even if it is total industrial and investment is CRAZY... Just look at how long we have been using up silver and oil for that matter is mind blowing... Wonder just how much is really left in the ground at this point and at what cost to get to it is also crazy to think about... Yet we see it for sale still today at well under 20 bucks... Sure glad its not me trying to mine for it at these costs.

  • idealcarpentry idealcarpentry Oct 21, 2014 8:17 PM Flag

    So what will it take to hit all time high record ? Another 6.5 mil ? Also if we were talking money wise per oz then this for sure isn't all time high... price was much higher when we hit 42 Mil eagles for the year. As the years role by its going to be interesting to talk about todays times in the future... 10 years from now will be saying... Man Remember you had the chance to buy a monster box for 10 k... WOW that was soooo Cheap back then.. LOL You know its going to be like that... Just as You can look at housing cost and say the same thing... In fact thats all the proof I need to know that Silver is a sound investment.. My first house was 150k in S.F. Ca.. That same house now sells close to $ 700k Silver will have the same kind of jump soon enough.

    Check out the short interest for SLV... About 1.3 mil shares have been added to the position from last month to this month... I can't believe that they would do this if they were done with pushing silver down... Honestly I hope they are able to get silver under 8 ... I would look at it as a Gift of a lifetime.. Much like I did when Hallburton stock was at 9 dollars.. Made a Great trade on that one long time ago... But now my Balls are much bigger .. If silver gets below 10 I plan on Pouncing on it so frocking hard it will secure my family and families family for many generations to come.... I will never let such an easy investment pass me by again... And in the case of silver. That would be the all time easiest one of all....

    Well tell them to hurry the Frock up already... Still waiting for it to happen.... Also have a nice hedge / Side bet in place to make tons of money on if it does...

  • idealcarpentry idealcarpentry Oct 21, 2014 8:02 PM Flag

    LMFAO... You are right Skarry... True Stackers can't and won't get wiped out because they aren't in a needy position... Stackers are smarter then the avg Joe and don't need to rely on their silver to make do.... This also worries them because not only are many older box's coming for sale at the metal brokers companies like apmex , but the bigger worry is stackers numbers are growing... So Go ahead and make it that much easier for we stackers to take out more of the supply... We truly thank you...

    I wish I new better how the option game plays out and how its being used to control things... Maybe one day I will have to have a sit down with someone that really knows the works of options... To me it seems more of a gamble then an investment...

    I gave you a Green thumb... I just added another box this month .. Still wanting to start on Gold but I can't seem to leave silver alone.. Its just amazing to me how so much silver is being sold and they are still meeting supplies... I can't wait for this thing to break loose... What they don't understand is what could happen... If more stackers pile on even with say 10 to 20 k in real silver They will have a NIGHTMARE On their hands... Billions of Chinese and India .. might just get it...

  • And she cracks a Joke as to say were does it end ? Will we be saying QE 10 ? And then Laughs about it... Im not sure why this Dumb Bitty thinks thats funny... Frocking Moron doesn't realize what the Fed is doing by doing all this ... I bet she doesn't own any silver or gold... Tardio... To busy trying to make sure she looks charming for the camera .. What a Bozo.

  • NO WAY, REALLY ? LMFAO.... Please someone explain to me if my thoughts are right ...
    Lets say economy is doing well .. This means more silver is needed and is still in very high demand... So with prices so low and recycling tanking the supplies will have problems keeping up with demands.. Along with what seems to be starting is mining companies holding back supplies because price is to cheap...

    Next we got the down turn economy .. DEFLATION... WHOOOO Scary stuff... So If this happens mining will slow drastically because of to much supply build up.. That means silver will slow drastically since 70 % plus percent comes from by product of other metals being mined... That can't be good right... And along with recycling down and miners holding metals so what then ? Not to mention silver sales are still way up...

    Then we always have and will continue to have QE to infinite and beyond... WORLD WIDE... Every country is printing like made .. So help me out and tell me were is the downside to silver ?

    I know my friend Chinarocket is saying 8 dollar silver is on the way... Personally I don't see that as a bad thing .. LOL But honestly I just don't see a downside to silver here and now...

    Oh I know. If you pick silver up and drop it it goes down.. OK I get it now...

  • idealcarpentry idealcarpentry Oct 20, 2014 12:29 PM Flag

    Honestly it is quite impressive just how strong this paper short is. Still waiting and hoping Chinarocket will be right and gets silver down to 8 or lower... Man will that be an unbelievable GIFT...

  • idealcarpentry idealcarpentry Oct 20, 2014 12:24 PM Flag

    Chinarocket... Said we are in a Market Bull run and we will hit Dow 20k to 25 k American economy is booming... Just quoting him... I will say this. Here in S.F. Ca he would be right... Things are booming here.

    Oh don't worry... They are handing out Credit cards with zero interest rates for 18 months.. They will save christmas and kick the can down the road for one more year... Also notice like clock work gas prices dropping almost a buck already in hopes to put money into peoples pockets so they have some extra money to spend on JUNK... So Xmas numbers come out looking great....
