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…

James McDonald President and CEO stated “We are very pleased to have the support of Mr. Eric Sprott as a major investor in Kootenay.Having Mr. Sprott make a significant investment in the Company is a strong endorsement of our silver asset base. This financing puts us in a very strong financial position and allows us to move aggressively forward on not just Columba, but our other key assets as well.”

If you buy shares in a silver mining company, you will have to assume additional market risks compared to ownership of silver bullion. You may wish to do so in order to potentially gain leveraged exposure to silver prices. What you may not realize, however, is that most of the publicly traded “silver” stocks out there are primarily in the business of mining other metals – sometimes gold, often copper, zinc, lead, and other base metals.

Frank Holmes, August 12, 9:18 am

The best performing metal this week was silver, up 4.78 percent. Silver had been somewhat detached from gold’s price changes, but now with recession odds rising, silver is catching its bid. Gold traders and analysts were bullish on their outlook for the yellow metal this week as it set a new six-year high above $1,500 per ounce. The metal saw a second straight weekly gain, fueled by uncertainty surrounding global trade tensions and monetary policy. Investors have taken notice of the rally with ETFs backed by gold growing holdings for nine straight days. Bloomberg reports that total gold held by ETFs rose 8.5 percent this year to 77.1 million ounces, the highest level in at least 12 months. SPDR Gold Shares, or the GLD, saw five straight days of inflows this week totaling a whopping $1 billion.
