Total Silver Investment May Increase By One Billion Ounces Over the Next Decade

Washington, D.C. – October 22, 2014) – Investors are likely to increase their net silver purchases in the years ahead, largely due to an ongoing weak global economy, for capital preservation and silver’s pedigree as a leading industrial metal, according to a report released today by the Silver Institute.

The Better Short: Gold or Silver?

The fundamentals for the precious metals are weak. This has been highlighted in recent weeks by the lack of a major rally in gold and the losses in silver despite a spike in volatility to its highest since 2011. Improving economic data, the tapering of QE, and discussion of when the first rate hike will be have resulted in heavy losses over the past two years in the precious metals, and are to blame for the poor performance in the recent risk off market conditions stemming from the Ebola fears.

These overwhelmingly bearish fundamentals are the reason that we have taken short positions on the precious metals sector and why we intend to continue to do so. However, while both gold and silver offer attractive levels for new shorts, which metal holds the better risk reward dynamics in the current market situation? To answer this we must consider how each metal behaves and performs during both risk off and on conditions, as well as their current technical situations.

3 Reasons the Silver Price is Bound to Rise

Silver managed to close Thursday at $17.37 per ounce after taking a steep fall to $17.04 the previous day. 

The drop followed the news that litigation alleging silver price fixing on the parts of Deutsche Bank (NYSE:DB), The Bank of Nova Scotia (TSX:BNS) and HSBC Holdings (NYSE:HSBC) has been centralized in a Manhattan federal court; a strong US dollar also didn’t help matters.

How to Invest in a Difficult Market

How to Invest in a Difficult Market

By Casey Research

Many experts hold dim views of the current state of the US economy—but what’s a prudent investor to do to make a profit? Find out what the blue-ribbon faculty of economists and investment pros at the recently concluded Casey Research Fall Summit thought.

Lacy Hunt, senior executive VP of Hoisington Investment Management Company and former chief economist at the Dallas Fed, says the main reason that the global economy continues to falter is that all countries borrow too much and save too little.

“275% total debt to GDP is the critical threshold. Every world economy of importance is above that level and moving higher.”

We Are Now At A Major Tipping Point For The World

Today one of the legends in the business warned King World News that the world is now at a major tipping point.  Keith Barron, who consults with major companies around the world and is responsible for one of the largest gold discoveries in the last quarter century, also discussed what is happening with the major markets and Ebola.

Barron:  We have slowdowns in Europe and in America.  I said to you about a month ago that there would be some sort of exogenous event that’s going to knock this market sideways.

Fighting back, First Majestic delays sale of silver amid price weakness

In this morning's mail bag we received this heads-up from Todd Anthony of First Majestic Silver Corp a post that appeared on GATA:

7:42p ET Tuesday, October 14, 2014

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Ninety-nine point nine percent of gold and silver mining companies and their executives are brain-dead, merely geologists and accountants, unaware of the monetary nature of their product and how their product is priced by surreptitious market intervention by central banks. But here and there certain companies and their executives have a clue, and First Majestic Silver Corp. today again proclaimed itself to have far more than a clue.

George Soros Bought $10.5 Million of Silver Wheaton Corp.; Should You Buy, Too?

It’s my favourite way to invest in precious metals, and apparently George Soros agrees with me.

The stock is Silver Wheaton Corp. (TSX: SLW)(NYSE: SLW). Originally, the company was a small division of mining giant Goldcorp Inc., until it was spun off in 2004. But over the next 10 years, Silver Wheaton has grown into one of the largest players in the mining sector.

It’s an odd bet.

This whole idea of socialism has created a system that is way beyond what anyone in their right mind would have created. The Swiss pension system is at risk no different from anyone else. Swiss life insurance companies guarantee one part of the pensions of Swiss workers.
