Tuesday’s announcement by the Justice Department of a guilty plea by a long term former trader from JPMorgan for spoofing COMEX precious metal futures was the second such guilty plea since October. Both traders are cooperating in the DOJ’s ongoing investigation. While it took way too long for the Justice Department and the CFTC to finally crack down on spoofing, I suppose it’s a case of better late than never. And there can be little doubt that the regulators have cracked down on the illegal practice, which involves the entry and immediate cancellation of large orders solely designed to manipulate prices in the short term.

I would like to take an in-depth look at Sliver and show you the bottoming process that finally came to an end in late May of this year. There is no question that silver as been the laggard when it comes to the PM complex similar to what we saw back in the early 2000’s when gold led the way for the rest of the PM complex. Silver eventually caught fire and actually topped out in April of 2011 a full five months before gold and the PM stock indexes. If you’ve been trading silver for any length of time then you know when it moves it can make up lost ground in a hurry. Since the early 2016 low SLV has been trying to bottom around the 13 area. Every time it would find support and rally higher SLV could never maintain its impulse move higher. Below is a one year daily chart for SLV which shows a small double bottom that formed late last year and after reaching the double bottom price objective at 15.00 the price action declined once again toward the bottom of the previous lows. This time however SLV was able to find its low slightly above its 2018 double bottom low forming the blue bullish falling wedge.

Over the past few weeks, I've often stated in public interviews that an expansion of the Gold:Silver Ratio to 100 would not surprise me—meaning that COMEX gold could go to $1700 while COMEX silver remains near $17—before a "substitution effect" finally forces The Banks to retreat and silver moves higher. While this may still be the case, a couple of changes over the past few weeks have led me to consider a different, short-term outlook for COMEX Digital Silver. Let's start with that substitution effect. What does that mean?

NFLATE OR DIE! Create more debt and higher prices, and transfer wealth from the many to the few. Our President wants lower interest rates. The Fed wants more inflation so they can expand the fiat currency Ponzi scam. Congress wants to spend, spend, spend… And they will get it. Enter MMT..

After getting a thorough simulation of what it feels like to watch paint dry over the past eight years, the silver market is finally showing some signs of life. After rising almost $2.50 from the May 20 $14.41 lows (coincidentally also the same time the banks finished buying back their short position – as can be seen by the red line in the middle section of the chart below), silver recently even crossed above the $17 mark.

If we look at certain indicators in the silver market, the price is setting up for a big move. It seems as if mainstream investors are now becoming more worried about the stock and bond markets. With almost $17 trillion in negative-yielding debt in the world, the notion that gold or silver doesn’t earn a yield is starting to look like a better deal than paying someone to own bonds.

David Smith, August 14, 2:26 pm

Start laying in some physical gold and silver. There is compelling evidence that as the price reaches about $26, a major resistance point from years' past, "the public" – your friends and neighbors – will finally decide to join the crowd. With such a relatively small market you can be certain, assuming availability, both the price and the premiums will be much higher than they are today. So what's the point of waiting?

History shows that debt will increase until the system resets. Increasing debt creates more currency in circulation and higher prices as the dollar devalues. Read “The Three D’s of Doom.” History and the empirical price model show that silver prices are too low. Expect higher prices for several years. Read “Silver Price Forecast.” Trusting politicians will spend, central bankers will devalue, consumer prices will rise, and silver prices will be multiples higher in 2025…
