Unfortunately, most precious metals investors do not realize the critical factor in acquiring and holding the physical silver investment. The majority of gold and silver analysts provide forecasts for precious metals based on the negative symptoms taking place in the economy and market (debt, derivatives, fiat money, etc), and not the fundamental factor… ENERGY. </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-datestamp field-field-article-published-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Thursday, January 23rd</span> </div> </div> </div> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.25rem; padding: 0px; border: 0px; font-style: normal; font-variant-ligatures: normal; font-variant-caps: normal; font-variant-numeric: inherit; font-variant-east-asian: inherit; font-weight: 400; font-stretch: inherit; font-size: 17.008px; line-height: inherit; font-family: 'Droid Sans', sans-serif; vertical-align: baseline; color: #000000; letter-spacing: normal; orphans: 2; text-align: start; text-indent: 0px; text-transform: none; white-space: normal; widows: 2; word-spacing: 0px; -webkit-text-stroke-width: 0px; background-color: #ffffff; text-decoration-style: i<p><a href="http://silverseek.com/commentary/tremendous-hidden-value-every-silver-coin-17826" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Thu, 23 Jan 2020 15:03:41 +0000 SRSrocco 17826 at http://silverseek.com Silver Above-Ground Stocks A Mere Fraction Of Global Assets http://silverseek.com/commentary/silver-above-ground-stocks-mere-fraction-global-assets-17801 <div class="field field-type-text field-field-article-snippet"> <div class="field-label">Snippet:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> The debate on the amount of above-ground silver stocks is completely meaningless when we compare it to the value of global assets. It is also true when we compare the estimated above-ground stocks of gold versus silver. While there may be more silver held in the world than industry analysts have forecasted, it’s still a mere fraction compared to global assets. Recently, Jan Nieuwenhuijs of Voima Gold, formerly known as “Koos Jansen” at Bullionstar, wrote an article titled, “How Much Silver Is Above Ground?” I had several followers email me this article and asked my opinion. So, I thought it best to put out my own commentary to set the record straight. </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-datestamp field-field-article-published-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Friday, December 6th</span> </div> </div> </div> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.25rem; padding: 0px; border: 0px; font-style: normal; font-variant-ligatures: normal; font-variant-caps: normal; font-variant-numeric: inherit; font-variant-east-asian: inherit; font-weight: 400; font-stretch: inherit; font-size: 17.008px; line-height: inherit; font-family: 'Droid Sans', sans-serif; vertical-align: baseline; color: #000000; letter-spacing: normal; orphans: 2; text-align: start; text-indent: 0px; text-transform: none; white-space: normal; widows: 2; word-spacing: 0px; -webkit-text-stroke-width: 0px; background-color: #ffffff; text-decoration-style: i<p><a href="http://silverseek.com/commentary/silver-above-ground-stocks-mere-fraction-global-assets-17801" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Fri, 06 Dec 2019 10:46:48 +0000 SRSrocco 17801 at http://silverseek.com Primary Silver Producer’s Most Profitable Mine Closed Indefinitely As Reserves Depleted http://silverseek.com/commentary/primary-silver-producer%E2%80%99s-most-profitable-mine-closed-indefinitely-reserves-depleted-1779 <div class="field field-type-text field-field-article-snippet"> <div class="field-label">Snippet:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Endeavour Silver’s most profitable mine will be shut down indefinitely by the end of November due to the exhaustion of mineral reserves.

While Mexico and Chile experienced declines in their silver production, Peru was by far the biggest loser. Peru, which is the second-largest silver producer in the world, suffered an 11% decline in the country’s domestic mine supply Jan-Jul 2019. Even though the decline of silver mine supply at these leading producers isn’t impacting the current silver market price currently, it will likely do so as the Fed and central banks lose control of their QE money printing and asset purchase policy. In less than two weeks, the total U.S. debt has increased by another COOL $85 billion. With total U.S. public debt now at $22.92 trillion, it’s only a matter of time, maybe just a few weeks before we reach another record of $23 trillion. </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-datestamp field-field-article-published-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Thursday, October 24th</span> </div> </div> </div> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.25rem; padding: 0px; border: 0px; font-style: normal; font-variant-ligatures: normal; font-variant-caps: normal; font-variant-numeric: inherit; font-variant-east-asian: inherit; font-weight: 400; font-stretch: inherit; font-size: 17.008px; line-height: inherit; font-family: 'Droid Sans', sans-serif; vertical-align: baseline; color: #000000; letter-spacing: normal; orphans: 2; text-align: start; text-indent: 0px; text-transform: none; white-space: normal; widows: 2; word-spacing: 0px; -webkit-text-stroke-width: 0px; background-color: #ffffff; text-decoration-style: i<p><a href="http://silverseek.com/commentary/top-producers-silver-mine-supply-continues-decline-jan-jul-2019-17781" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Thu, 24 Oct 2019 13:05:16 +0000 SRSrocco 17781 at http://silverseek.com SILVER PRICE UPDATE: Key Technical Levels While The Underlying Fundamentals Improve http://silverseek.com/commentary/silver-price-update-key-technical-levels-while-underlying-fundamentals-improve-17778 <div class="field field-type-text field-field-article-snippet"> <div class="field-label">Snippet:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> While the silver price is trading at another important short-term technical level, the underlying fundamentals continue to improve. Since silver peaked at $19.75 at the beginning of September, it has been correcting lower to key support levels. As I mentioned in my last update, the silver price would like correct back down to a key support level before moving higher. And, if history is a guide, there is a likely price where that turnaround will occur. However, it is essential to understand that technical analysis is only one aspect that guides the silver market price. Another more important factor is the improving fundamentals for precious metals as the Fed, and central banks begin to ramp up QE (money printing) once again. Of course, Fed Chairman Powell says the $60 billion a month in Treasury purchases is NOT QE. </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-datestamp field-field-article-published-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Wednesday, October 16th</span> </div> </div> </div> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.25rem; padding: 0px; border: 0px; font-style: normal; font-variant-ligatures: normal; font-variant-caps: normal; font-variant-numeric: inherit; font-variant-east-asian: inherit; font-weight: 400; font-stretch: inherit; font-size: 17.008px; line-height: inherit; font-family: 'Droid Sans', sans-serif; vertical-align: baseline; color: #000000; letter-spacing: normal; orphans: 2; text-align: start; text-indent: 0px; text-transform: none; white-space: normal; widows: 2; word-spacing: 0px; -webkit-text-stroke-width: 0px; background-color: #ffffff; text-decoration-style: i<p><a href="http://silverseek.com/commentary/silver-price-update-key-technical-levels-while-underlying-fundamentals-improve-17778" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Wed, 16 Oct 2019 12:24:27 +0000 SRSrocco 17778 at http://silverseek.com Silver Price Update: Including End of a Silver Mining Era http://silverseek.com/commentary/silver-price-update-including-end-silver-mining-era-17762 <div class="field field-type-text field-field-article-snippet"> <div class="field-label">Snippet:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Since my last video update, the silver price has consolidated to a lower level. While I wasn’t surprised to see silver continue to correct, I do believe its only temporary before it begins a new leg higher. And, if we look at the COT Report for silver, there are some positive signs going forward. But, before I provide a preview on my newest video update, Silver Price Update &amp; End Of A Silver Mining Era, I wanted to clarify my position on “technical analysis.” There seems to be a large group of precious metals investors that have a negative KNEE-JERK reaction when I post some charts on technical analysis. They say its a waste of time to consider technical analysis when the market is rigged or controlled by the bullion banks (JP Morgan), the Fed and central banks. </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-datestamp field-field-article-published-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Monday, September 23rd</span> </div> </div> </div> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.25rem; padding: 0px; border: 0px; font-style: normal; font-variant-ligatures: normal; font-variant-caps: normal; font-variant-numeric: inherit; font-variant-east-asian: inherit; font-weight: 400; font-stretch: inherit; font-size: 17.008px; line-height: inherit; font-family: 'Droid Sans', sans-serif; vertical-align: baseline; color: #000000; letter-spacing: normal; orphans: 2; text-align: start; text-indent: 0px; text-transform: none; white-space: normal; widows: 2; word-spacing: 0px; -webkit-text-stroke-width: 0px; background-color: #ffffff; text-decoration-style: i<p><a href="http://silverseek.com/commentary/silver-price-update-including-end-silver-mining-era-17762" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Mon, 23 Sep 2019 17:24:45 +0000 SRSrocco 17762 at http://silverseek.com Silver Price Manipulation: Setting the Record Straight http://silverseek.com/commentary/silver-price-manipulation-setting-record-straight-17751 <div class="field field-type-text field-field-article-snippet"> <div class="field-label">Snippet:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> While I have no doubt there is an intervention in the precious metals markets, we must remember that the Fed and central banks are manipulating the ENTIRE MARKET with money printing, bond purchases, debt issuance, and zero (or negative) interest rates.
