After my article, in which I questioned the CPM Group’s exclusion of silver investment demand from their supply and demand analysis, Jeff Christian responded with a comment on my website. I am glad that Mr. Christian responded because it now allows me the opportunity to explain in more detail why I disagree with the CPM Group’s analysis. </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, December 11th</span> </div> </div> </div> <p style="background-color: transparent; border-image-outset: 0; border-image-repeat: stretch; border-image-slice: 100%; border-image-source: none; border-image-width: 1; color: #000000; font-family: &amp;quot; droid sans&amp;quot;,sans-serif; font-size: 16.93px; font-size-adjust: none; font-stretch: normal; font-style: normal; font-variant: normal; font-weight: 400; letter-spacing: normal; line-height: 27.08px; margin-bottom: 20px; margin-left: 0px; margin-right: 0px; margin-top: 0px; orphans: 2; text-align: left; text-decoration: none; text-indent: 0px; text-transform: none; vertical-align: <p><a href="http://silverseek.com/commentary/cpm-group%E2%80%99s-jeff-christian-responds-%E2%80%9Cnegatively%E2%80%9D-srsrocco-report-silver-investment-demand" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Tue, 12 Dec 2017 02:36:16 +0000 SRSrocco 17002 at http://silverseek.com THE DISINFORMATION WAR: The Attempt To Disregard Silver Investor Demand In The Market http://silverseek.com/commentary/disinformation-war-attempt-disregard-silver-investor-demand-market-16990 <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"> There is a Disinformation War taking place in the silver market as certain industry analysis is confusing individuals by purposely disregarding the tremendous impact of rising investment demand.

While I agree that the bullion banks’ massive short contracts are controlling the silver price to a certain degree, there’s another factor that is overlooked by the majority of precious metals analysts. </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">Sunday, November 26th</span> </div> </div> </div> <p style="background-color: transparent; border-image-outset: 0; border-image-repeat: stretch; border-image-slice: 100%; border-image-source: none; border-image-width: 1; color: #000000; font-family: &amp;quot; droid sans&amp;quot;,sans-serif; font-size: 16.93px; font-size-adjust: none; font-stretch: normal; font-style: normal; font-variant: normal; font-weight: 400; letter-spacing: normal; line-height: 27.08px; margin-bottom: 20px; margin-left: 0px; margin-right: 0px; margin-top: 0px; orphans: 2; text-align: left; text-decoration: none; text-indent: 0px; text-transform: none; vertical-align: <p><a href="http://silverseek.com/commentary/examining-silver-manipulation-what-some-analysts-miss-16974" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Sun, 26 Nov 2017 17:46:02 +0000 SRSrocco 16974 at http://silverseek.com Global Silver Investment Demand Maybe Down, But Still Double Pre-2008 Market Crash Level http://silverseek.com/commentary/global-silver-investment-demand-maybe-down-still-double-pre-2008-market-crash-level-16962 <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 physical silver investment demand experienced a pronounced decline this year, the volume is still much larger than the level prior to the 2008 U.S. Housing and Banking Crash.
