    Tracking at 64 to 1... OUCH.... Yet Silver and gold mining is only 8 to 1 and silver being bought up over gold is 50 to 1... Something one day is going to give... When it does you can bet the cracking sound will be heard all around the world... Like a sonic BOOM !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Keep Stacking boys and girls...

  • Wait one minute... I thought everything was hunky dory ? So what gives ? I guess the fed want / CANT Stop buying those bonds after all... LMFAO As if they ever could. What a frocking JOKE... PEOPLE WAKE THE FROCK UP ALREADY... BONDS Equals DEBT DUE Equals JOBS... Nobody re purchase those #$%$ bonds that come due EVERY MONTH then guess what , JOBS GET LOST.. Its that simple people...

    Every bank as well the FED knows exactly how much bonds come due for each and every month... They know when they can slow and when they have to add... The only thing they don't know and are trying harder then hell to convince people is how much or many of these bonds will be purchased from someone other then the Feds ? And since most are broke are batches and foreign money isn't wanting it then what choice do they have left ?

    THIS IS A FACT... We are SCREWED BLUED AND TATOO As the saying goes.. The only thing the Fed is doing is delaying the inevitable...

    All of you who haven't put some money aside yet into REAL ASSETS is one day going to wish to god you did... Just like what happens to any one of us when we go broke will happen to America but at a factor of MILLIONS time worse....

    That means by end of the year I believe silver will be around 25 dollars and if xlv follows it will be around 24.

  • Looking at the chart if xlv can't get below 19.35 then its going to rally Big and make new highs for the year...

    I think they are hoping for a few things. Global slow down. Industrial need to slow. Investment demand to wain . And perhaps a new discovery of billion oz to appear somewhere … Perhaps an asteroid like some fool here said. LMFAO… Mining an asteroid wouldn't be to expensive after all now would it ? LOL

    Myself I am simply adding as months go by and don't care. Not yet anyways. The Debt bubble that is going on is world wide.. Its not nor can't go away and will pop… The longer it goes the bigger it gets the more mess it will make… Also it will cause the SPIKE that much created…Just like if a fat man were to jump on a seesaw with a skinny man on the other side… Only this FAT MAN Weighs in at 17,6 trillion pounds … Not including his fat friends looking to jump right after him….

    Honestly , I highly doubt it… Do you really think they would have added 50 % to their short position in the last 1 1/2 month if the jig was up ? Really , Do you think that ?

  • Compared to last year and compared to its big brother the american Eagle ? You know Dam well China does not like the fact that more eagles are being sold then their pandas….

    Come on guys… Its not going to go away that easy.. Do you think ? Why would they have shorted MORE SHARES of SLV if they were worked at all ? No I don't think we have seen the last of these #$%$ just yet… They must have something left up their sleeves. 20 plus mil shares now short and not even counting the billion dollar options and derivatives markets…. Place your bets… What makes me scratch my head is why the actual miners bother selling to the market if in fact the silver market is so small / tight and at low supply ? And why at any loss ? I have no doubt that all this Debt bubble is going to one day blow up in our face … This will put the real value back to were it belongs. But will it last ? Or will these RATS Scurry around and put something else back in the dollars place and once again make COWS Believe what they are holding once again has real value ?

    Most don't understand why gold and silver have real value they don't get it .. All they know it the note in there hand can buy them what they want because the system in place tells them it can… And they are right. But what they don't understand is how the people who designed the system continually STEAL Value from their IOU Note… With zero effort and definitely with no labor behind it…

    Snake salesmen are all that they are… Making the avg JOE THE PLUMBER believe they they are needed because if you don't have them then everything will go under.. As if its not already….

  • Very interesting… Talks about a factor of 7 times storage with no side effects or waste and even faster charging time… When this comes to fruit it will be a major change coming our way….

    Thank you stumble… I researched another field that is growing and that is windows.. PG& E uses 5 mil oz of silver into Windows per year… Seems like now here in Ca its mandatory now to have low E windows. As far as solar goes I would not be surprised to see big companies take advantage of Discounted silver prices… PS.. The Calcs I gave were based on 1 megawatt and used with the larger panels. So it is fairly close. If china puts out or sells 45 GW of power then those panels will be using close to 300 Mil OZ Also the inverters have some silver in them as well. As far as 20 years out ? Well we will have to see… As you saw last year recycling was down 24 %… Worst year ever…. Thats the problem . You can't have it both ways. If there is no money to be made the recycling won't get done… Boy oh boy we are a wasteful nation.

    KEEP SHORTING

    they are. They added another 1.5 mil shares short… Almost doubled their short position in the last month alone… Paper game is bringing everything down … I keep enough cash on hand to pay my bills for 6 months or more. After that it all goes into Hard assets or unless I am looking for more real Estate I save for that...

    Just read a news article that said 2/3 of an ounce is in one solar panel… Making total need for 45 Gigawatts of panels around 300 million oz of silver… Still that is a lot of silver. This does not factor in any other industrial needs like whats in the inverters or cars / windows / medical devices / batteries / chips / computers / jewelry /silver ware and other tableware / phones / medical devices … And the ever growing investment demand. Coins and bars. Seems to me we are looking at a future problem wouldn't you say ? Not even pumping. If solar continues at this pace of expansion then we could be seeing 50 % of all silver mined in a year going towards solar panels alone.

  • idealcarpentry by idealcarpentry Jul 28, 2014 6:06 AM Flag

    i megawatt is approx 10,000 plus panels. Each panel has approx 1 0z of silver in them. 1000 megawatts = 1 gigawatt. China says the world will be adding about 45 gigawatts of power this year.

    10000 panels say 1 oz per = 10000 x 1000 meg = 10000000 x 45 giga = 450,000,000.

    Is this right ? Thats a hole lot of silver going into solar panels.

  • Well glad you asked… Think about this… If the economy was doing well the credit cards would not be PUMPING Credit into peoples hands and offering them no interest for two years… Would they ? What this is is BAD NEWS FOR ALL .. Because it is giving people the extra rope they need in which to hang themselves with… They will spend just like they did with the last Housing crises .. Spend using money they don't have and then won't figure for the bill once interest rates get tacked on… This will cause another go around in a few years with lots of BK and foreclosing happening all over again. I say enjoy the party while you can because once its all over america is going to go through some real struggles.

    All over what they gubment said would be our deficit for the year… Remember back in January they said we will be running a 500 Deficit for this year… Well they already over now by 101 billion and 5 months left…. They can't seem to tell the truth about anything can they ? Oh yes come next mont they will stop purchasing bonds as well.. BWHAHAHA.. More BS….

    You crack me up…. I don't care what the price is now . All I care about is what it will be in 10 years or more. I suggest to all not to go crazy but to buy REAL SILVER ONLY And to do it on a monthly or quarterly basis with money they won't need until retirement time or if at all… The Debt bubble you make fun of is one day going to blow up in our face… All bubbles do. This will be the worst the world has ever seen. Do I make stupid predictions like you ? NO . Why ? Because it makes you look stupid… Just like your prediction for 8 dollar silver or lower by Xmas or like new lows prediction last month… Im in this for the long haul. Silver was stuck for a long time in the 15 range… Well today its in the 20 range and the world has added tons of paper debt to the system. The next jump will be into the 25 range then the thirty and the forty and so on.. Silver does not grow on trees.. In fact continue to keep it cheap and you only make the problem that much worse for real silver… The cheaper it is the less of it gets recycled and the more of it gets bought up. Miners also can't lose money forever so if they can't make money they won't mine. Time is on my side . I can wait. So good luck to you and all your paper.. Myself I am happy and doing just fine holding and buying more real silver… Its pretty and very comfortable for me to know I have something of real value.. Not Rancid to me . Not in the least.
