So to all silverbugs we are used to silvermarket smackdowns. When JP Morgan & co flood the market with naked shorts or increasing margin requirements and the price starts crashing. This is the game they play, they cant let silver price go up, or these few Too big to fail banks are in big trouble.

But what happened this friday was that a HUGE amount of papersilver was sold in 7 minutes (102 million oz)
This is the amount of phyz that have been mined this year.

But this time someone actually bought these shorts. China????
If this is china then we should see some interesting days ahead. Im not saying that this is the end of manipulation, but we are getting close to the point when phyz silver investors are getting their reward as comex
seems to be dry of silver.

Read more from silverdoctors

This is getting really interesting with oilprice rising and all.

That's manipulation.

Hell the margin rates on silver are the highest on the market and by far.

Funny how the CME will never raise margin rates on oil or food uh? You know, stuff that is heavily manipulated by speculation?? But sure as hell will raise margins on silver and gold when they feel like it to keep them down...

The CME are a bunch of crooks... it's not a coincidence they are in Chicago.

Let's also mention the SEC who's not doing their job in the least and watch porn all day...

I blame the silver and gold bullion refining for dummie threads

Those threads were awesome, thank you very much! I certainly had need of that information, and previously had no idea it was something I could do myself.

If in fact there was a purchase of the injected silver by a 3rd party, that would indeed be huge. the analogy is that a man was taunting another with a lever for a jack to hoist his car and a third man took the offer.

The 3rd party is now in possession of the "silver" lever.

It would be VERY interesting to know WHO the 3rd party buyer is (Elite? White Dragon? Other?)

They ran silver over a chart point in the low $35.70 area triggering buy stops which the big boyz sold into to take profits. The lack of follow thru can result in an air pocket to the downside. And yes for every contract sold there is a contract bought.

I'm of the strong opinion that silver is the new gold, every month i am buying myself 2 oz of silver bullion and 5g of gold bullion as a long term investment.

I have been doing the same with silver. I thought of the grams of gold, but like you said. I also think silver will be the new gold in terms of what value that they will end up being depending on what financial system rises up from the ashes in the end. Although, I wish that I would find a nice vein of lithium in the back yard, but then I probably would be labeled Al Qaeda

Well, i allso think that silver will be outperforming any assetclass, and it will overshoot gold in price but when that happens im trading 75% of my silver to gold.
In short term i expect silver 50$ by summer and 200$ by the end of the year, but ofcource if that happens JP Morgan will be bankrupt and that cant happen without a major disaster and i expect all the evidence will be wiped out. I think they will blame greece

Greese will default by March 23

There really is no conspiracy to this. You are all looking to much into all of this. Its called"pump and dump". This means people/banks.... will pump up the price of silver then sell it off. Others will follow suit and some will be forced as margins are called as the price falls.
