Silver Supply in the Face of Manipulation

by Bret Mosher (and Jeff)

The truth about how much silver is in question. How much silver exists, who is buying and how much? If the silver market is being manipulated... then what validity is there to charts and free market indicators?

I surmise the more truth that seeps into our awareness, the more predictable short term reactions will be. Also, long term fundamentals will flood upon us when the finger in the dyke of manipulations fails. Am I missing something?

***from Jeff***

And no you aren't missing anything.

While conservative estimates about how much investment grade (bars and coins) silver is available range from 800 million to 1 billion -- about equal to the amount the world mines each year.

It's not impossible to get a rough idea of all the silver ever mined -- same for gold. And its a lot!!

The tougher question is what price will it take to bring the rest of that silver out from attics, trash heaps, and iphones? I'm guessing a lot higher prices -- which may or may not bring us in line with fundamentals.

"Silver Coin Investor is cutting edge and has it all...the value I receive from your website and The Lewis and Mariani Silver Letters is far, far greater than the small subscription cost. I am finding that I don't need any other source for silver research and knowledge. Thanks Jeff. I mean that.

"Well it helps confirm my conviction that silver is far better metal to invest in than gold or any of the other metals because of its monetary, medical, and industrial uses. So it really has a realistic unrecognized potential that I feel the gold bugs overlook. I read and research a lot of different sources and you help me stay balanced in my approach. Thanks for the course and keep up the good work!"
